Nicki Minaj has a beef with Barbara Walters, claiming “The View” co-host never reached out to her to get her side of her spat with fellow “American Idol” judge Mariah Carey.
The “Starships” singer lashed out at Walters in the second part of her E! special, “Nicki Minaj: My Truth,” over “The View” co-host calling her “unpredictable” on the talk show after speaking with Carey.
Minaj claimed Walters never attempted to get her side of the story.
“Am I not good enough for you to get my side because I’m a little black girl that raps? Because if I was J.Lo you would’ve called J.Lo’s people,” Minaj said, referring to former “America Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez, according to this clip posted on the Huffington Pot. “You wasn’t even there when I was on the show, Barbara, so I guess I’m not good enough but I’m only good enough to tell people that I’m unpredictable when you don’t f----- know me.”
Rumors of a feud between Minaj and Carey circulated after footage was leaked showing the two divas fighting last month.
In an interview with Access Hollywood, Minaj disputed that she has a feud with Carey. She used the word “allegedly” when Access Hollywood’s Michelle Beadle brought up the fight.
“You know what? Mariah’s a legend,” Minaj said. “I’m sitting next to a woman who I looked p to since I can remember enjoying music She’ll always be one of my favorite people in music. We both have strong personalities, but ultimately there’s respect there and I think if nothing else it’ll make for really great TV.”
Walters said she reached out to Minaj but didn’t get a response. The singer denies Walters’ claim.
"Barbara walters didn't reach out from our team barbz. I guess we're too dangerous. Don't shake if u don't wannA get shook,” Minaj wrote on her Twitter account, where she has nearly 15 million followers.
