    We now know why Nicki Minaj was put on 'American Idol', to bring the drama. Ok, we're just kidding. Hey guys I'm Misty Kingma for ClevverMusic. As you know, hip hop singer Nicki Minaj and legend Mariah Carey have been newly added to 'American Idol' as judges on the panel. A recent blowup fight between Nicki and Mariah while on set was recently caught on camera. Now, it seems Nicki has new 'Idol' beef, this time with former judge Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and she's calling him "racist".

    So here's what happened. In an interview with MTV News regarding the show Steven insinuated that the new judges aren't fit to judge on the show. Steven said regarding new talent, "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." He is of course referring to their unforgettable feud caught on camera.

    Steven also said that if an artist similar to Bob Dylan appeared to audition on the show, Nicki Minaj probably "would have sent him to the cornfield." Whereas if he was there, he would have nurtured the contestant as he did with Phillip Phillips. So we aren't surprised Nicki isn't having any of this. She took to Twitter yesterday to confront the former A.I. judge. In her first tweet she pointed out that no one has even seen her judge a single contestant yet, and then that she had nothing to do with Steven not keeping his job on 'Idol'.

    Nicki continued by saying, "That's a racist comment. You assume that I wouldn't have liked Bob Dylan??? Why? Black? Rapper? What? Go f—k yourself and worry about yourself babe." Nicki took her insults a step further by tweeting a fourth tweet a little later on saying, "LoL lets make him a shirt that says 'No Coloreds Allowed' then escort him down 2 Barbara Walters so he can tell how he was threatened w/guns." Referencing what Mariah did after her fight with Nicki. Then the last tweet she left us with said, "When Steven 1st went on Idol he was ridiculed by his peers & fans alike. Called a sell out. So what does he do? Ridicule the next judge." Ouch.

    We will have to wait and see if Steven responds to this Twit-fest. For now, we want to hear from you on who's side you're on? Team Nicki or Team Steven? We're here for you, just subscribe for more music news. I'm Misty Kingma, see you soon.
