Mariah Carey knows the deal. She opened up to Barbara Walters about her feud with her fellow ‘American Idol’ judge Nicki Minaj. Mariah said the arguing got so bad, Nicki threatened to shoot her.
“It felt like an unsafe work environment. Anytime anybody’s reeling threats at somebody, you know, it’s not appropriate. I’m a professional. I’m not used to that type of environment.”
“For all the drama, I hope it helps the show.”
“I wasn’t concerned. That’s exactly what you called it – drama. With drama, it’s theatrics. I’m not worried about that stuff. I wasn’t there. It made for good news. It sounded good, right? Good job, Fox!”
