Mariah Shades Nicki + Idol Press Conference / by

American Idol is right around the corner and the team has began the promotional rounds for the show. More noticeably, Mariah Carey, who's already had two sit down interviews with Barbara Walters and Rocsi Diaz. She shaded Nicki better than a palm tree on a hot summer day.

Mariah, being the diva and queen of shade that she is, had a few more words to say during the interview with Barbara and give Rocsi a breakdown of what she has to do when she's working with Nicki Minaj, indicating that she doesn't exist in her eyes at certain times.

Lastly, the panel for the show tagged along for the TCA Winter Press Tour and the divas seemed to have put the drama behind them, until comments were made, stares were given, and eyes were rolled. Randy Jackson & Keith Urban played it cool. Check out the action after the break.

Barbara Interview

Those looks, her choice of just makes her the ultmate bitch and queen of shade. I couldn't help but laugh at her response. It was classic. It's only a matter of time before Nicki Strikes back.  Below you can check out the interview with Rocsi. This is the video hen she pretty much said that Nicki is non-existent!

She is coming for those wigs that Nicki has. I mean, she's taking shot after shot. I can't wait to see what Nicki has to say once she starts interviews because I'm sure people are going to ask her just as much. Keith Urban and Randy Jackson are just in it for the ride. The two of them are trying to keep the peace but nothings working.

During that press conference, the girls we're cutting up. The journalist weren't making things any better by asking questions about the beef beterrn the two and not focusing on the actual show itself. ONe reported asked if the fight was real or just a ploy for ratings. Mariah reesponded...

'It’s a passionate panel. The fight is what it is.'

Then right after that, another reporter asked the two divas to say something nice about each other. I don't see what that has to do with the show but Nicki went to answer first by saying..

'I say nice things about Mariah all the time. She is one of my favourite artists of all time. 'To be on a panel with her, it's kind of crazy. All the singers come in aspiring to be Mariah, in terms of talent and in terms of career length.'

Mariah carey reportedly flinched ater hear those words from Nicki and gave this response...

'We did a song that was from my album and it was called, ironically, Up Out My Face. It was one of my favorite songs. And I did feel like she was going to go very far and still have that feeling. I am grateful for anything nice that she or anyone has to say.'

I'm sure that was a tough thing to do. They attempted to keep the piece but we'll see how much longer the producers are going to allow this feud to be milked. I know one thing, it's working. I don't even think the focus will be on the contestants talent this year. All eyes are on Nicki and Mariah. What do you think about the situation?
