"In my 20 years in entertainment news, I have interviewed close to 5,000 celebrities -- people who have bigger bragging rights than Nicki. Men and women who have Oscars, Grammys and Emmys. Yet, by far, she is the most ungracious of anyone I have met," wrote "Access Hollywood" reporter Laura Saltzman. She went on to add that Minaj only allows reporters to ask her two questions.
And if she doesn't like the questions? She just walks away!
Saltzman's colleague, Billy Bush, backed her up on the article, tweeting at Minaj to visit him on "Access Hollywood" so they can talk about the "huge chip" on her shoulder.
This set Minaj off.
"Honestly, if your day was really RUINED because i walked away from a question, rather than discuss something negative, u need a LIFE. Lmao," she tweeted.
"Lol. They dont realize how intelligent we are, so they constantly try to insult our intelligence. I will run circles around u pieces of s**t," she continued. "So disturbing the hate some people have in their veins. I think my last retweet shows that. Very sad when it comes to this. Done. Goodnight."
The Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey Feud Continues
Minaj might call out journalists for being difficult, but she's not exactly making fellow "Idol" judge Mariah Carey feel welcome at the judge's table. The rapper has pitted herself against Carey all season.
Minaj even called Carey "insecure" and "bitter" during a recent Twitter rant.
Is she trying to get Carey off the reality competition show? It seems like it - and it's working. Carey's husband, Nick Cannon, told KTLA that his wife is over all the drama and might just hang it up after one season.
"She was like 'I don't need this. I'm doing this for the brand of American Idol,' which she has been a fan of," Cannon told the Los Angeles news station. "'This is going to turn into one of those reality shows.' She's like, 'I didn't sign up to be on Love & Hip Hop.'"
Minaj might be trying to protect herself against nit-picky journalists, but it seems like she's doing the same thing she's "against" to Carey. You can't have it both ways, Nicki.
Tell us: Is Nicki Minaj out of line, or is she just being herself?
