Nicki Minaj isn’t only beefing with current American Idol judge, Mariah Carey, a former judge offended Barbie as well. Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler made a comment to MTV that rubbed Nicki the wrong way.

“It needs to be birthed, not judged by entertainment factors, it needs to be judged by people that are honest, true, that have the it factor. Not the it factor because they can fight. What the f--- is that all about?”

In reference to Minaj, Steve added:

“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, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying.”

Phillip, who?? Oh… right… that dude who won last year… Whatever you say, Steve-O. Nicki took to Twitter to counter the former judge:


Let’s hope Nicki, Mariah and company find a TRUE talent this year. As we’ve seen in the past, the show has produced very few stars with the ability to remain relevant (especially in recent years).
