Nicki Minaj Responds To Steven Tyler’s Criticism, Called Him Racist

Nicki Minaj new gig on American Idol has won her some new fans but has also gotten her some new beefs.

Former Idol judge Steven Tyler recently criticized the Young Money barbie during his interview with MTV News.

This is what Steven Tyler said:

“I know that they’ve got something going on on the judges’ panel, [and] it shouldn’t be that, it should be just the opposite: They should have something going on, which is called ‘camaraderie,'” Tyler said.

“They should have something going on so thick and beautiful that they can lay it over the new talent that’s trying to birth itself,” Tyler added. “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. The f is that all about?”

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

Nicki Minaj was not too pleased with Steven Tyler’s comments and went on a Twitter firestorm.
