It appears that there is no love lost between former American Idol judge Steven Tyler and one of his replacements, Nicki Minaj as the two started a very public feud this week. Minaj is not one to back down from a perceived insult and took to Twitter to rant against the Aerosmith front man for what she felt were racist comments.
The trouble started when Tyler gave an interview to MTV is which he was critical of the new judges saying; “You just have to give your opinion. It wasn’t hard for me, but I would imagine it’s hard for some people, and they need a manager to say ‘Shut the f— up, and just give them your opinion.” He went on to say that “if it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best out of him….”
Minaj took offense at the comment at felt it was racist taking to Twitter to say: ‘You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? Why? Black? Rapper? What? Go f—k yourself and worry about yourself babe.”
