American Idol: Nicki Minaj says Mariah Carey doesn’t like her

Nicki Minaj made headlines this past week when she walked off the American Idol judging panel.

The incident was initiated by a conversation about a contestant’s musical preferences, as Minaj disagreed with fellow judges Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey’s guidance to the singer.

Nicki was asked about the situation by Jimmy Kimmel, telling the host, "I wouldn't say I don't like her. I definitely don't think she likes me."

"I looked up to her for a long time,” said Minaj. “I don't want to be like hating this lady."

Nicki says the two have had an issue from onset but they're currently "having fun."

Following the Kimmel interview, Minaj performed “Va Va Voom” and “Freedom”.
