Perhaps in a bid to sully Nicki Minaj‘s public image and soften her own at the same time, iconic diva Mariah Carey arrived at an ‘American Idol’ photo shoot in Baton Rouge yesterday…with a police escort.
This, following a threat she claims- but vehemently denied by ‘Idol‘ producers and Minaj herself- saw the Rapper threaten to shoot her after getting into a nasty argument on Monday while filming together.
Sure to intensify their already volatile relationship, Mimi’s decision to call the police and discuss the matter with ‘The View’s Barbara Walters is believed to have triggered an obnoxious Twitter rant from the Pepsi front man.
A rant, which saw her spew the following:
I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that nicki is the best judge we’ve had since simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn

Here’s hoping this year’s talent isn’t overshadowed by this week’s drama.
We also hope Minaj learns to showcase the class and composure she didn’t deliver during last night’s outburst. An outburst, that was both embarrassing for both herself and the brands she depends on to push her cause.
