Minaj/Mariah Row – Real or Fake?
The ongoing row between American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj is little more than a publicity stunt aimed at lifting the reality show’s ailing ratings – or so rumor has it.
In fact, according to MTV, reports of tension between the pair were doing the rounds even before the first show aired. Footage soon leaked of them constantly rowing on set. Grainy footage has also been posted online of the women screaming at each other.
Rumors of a fake diva rift could be fact or fiction, but what is certain is that fans have taken to Twitter in their droves to express support for their favorite singer. It seems that it has gotten quite nasty, and there doesn’t seem to be any chance of things calming down anytime soon.
Neither of the stars has yet made any public comment on the reported rowing, so they jury is still out on whether there has been genuine tension or whether this is just a publicity stunt. We’ll keep you posted – but what do you think? And, if it’s fake, would you hold it against the show?
American Idol” returns in January 2013 on FOX.
