Watch: Mariah Carey Dismisses Nicki Minaj / Shares New Music On ‘Nightline’ (Full Interview)

Published: Tuesday 8th Jan 2013 by Sam

Mariah Carey‘s “shade dispenser” status has been established almost as long as her reign atop of the charts. Indeed, the legendary diva is renown for her quick-witted responses and  brisk dismissal of tomfoolery.

Hence, it was little surprise that the singer adopted this approach when addressing her “beef” with Nicki Minaj in a sit-down interview with Barbara Walters on Nightline last night.

Famed for asking questions the people really want answers to, Walters quizzed Carey on the drama with her fellow American Idol judge,  motherhood, marriage, and more.

The segment also featured Mimi working on patriotic cut ‘Bring It On Home’ and another piano-driven number – the latter of which believed to be a track from her upcoming album.

Peep the piece after the jump…

The jury’s out on whether Mariah, Minaj, and Idol are playing the “beef” for ratings given the show’s on-screen debut being around the corner (January 16th). Whatever the case, they’ve “done enough” to ensure we’ll be watching.

More than anything, though, we’re most amped for Mimi’s new music! She often delivers when backed up against a wall; and given the so-so sales of her albums in recent years, it’s more fact than fiction that her relevance to today’s charts is in a tricky predicament.

Here’s hoping she proves the naysayers wrong, ‘Emancipation’ style, this go round. She has a huge platform in the form of Idol (and will do for five months straight), hence there’s really no excuse.

    • BAD BYTCH January 8, 2013

      MORE LIKE D*** IS ALL IN HER.. LET’S NOT FORGET THE TRAGEDY THAT WAS “GLITTER” WHEN SHE WAS HAVING AN EMOTIONAL AND MENTAL BREAKDOWN… BUT EVER SINCE CORNY ASS NICK CANNON BEEN PLUNGING HER DOWN THIS B**** AINT STOP SMILING SINCE. OH YEA… AND MARIAH AINT HAD VOCALS IN YEARS, NOW ITS MERELY A WHISPER

      • tits mcgee January 8, 2013

        I’m sorry I don’t speak jibber jabber. Let me know who your fave female is because she has not sold as many albums as Mariah, so you can kick rocks.

        Legends have bumps in the road, but they pick themselves up and keep doing what God put them here to do. And leave the lessors in the dust.

      • EJ January 8, 2013

        This b**** is the QUEEEEEEEEN of shade. smdh. She better chill out b4 Nicki come after her ass again. #Teamminaj and #Romanempire ain’t toleratin’ that s***. lol

      • tits mcgee January 8, 2013

        @EJ

        Mariah is not the only one being shady. Nicki rapping about checking b****** on idol was shade right?

        As long as the shade stays subliminal and not out of control ( people screaming on set,etc.), I don’t see a problem.

        Team minaj may not tolerate, but the Lambs will go HAM.

    Stop hyping this situation up. It’s so last year.

    Anywho>>>>>>

    Oh and I’m 1st! Lol!

    • tits mcgee January 8, 2013

      The two women involved said they squashed the beef. So leave it alone and enjoy the show. #thatisall

      • tits mcgee January 8, 2013

        Nothing Mariah said was new. She and Nicki have said the same things, since the incident happened. So why are people acting brand new.

        If you listen both say that the beef is over. So let’s see….

    She is giving me life in this Pic , werk hunty

  4. Dev January 8, 2013

    I’m liking the songs that have previewed, Mariah is a grown woman and mother and as i grew up listening to Mariah and am now grown i’m glad that the music is having a more mature feel that “triumphant” didn’t have…. Lets just hope the outfits continue to have a longer hemline and be better fitting.

  5. JWOLF January 8, 2013

    “I didn’t know she sung, I thought she rapped…”

    I’m a huge fan of both nicki and Mariah but LMFAO… That shade so dark a b**** needs a lamp.

    At least it isn’t Flophanna on American idol. B**** couldn’t sing her way out of a wet paper bag. S***, that h** ratchet. Someone please link me a performance where she doesn’t sound like a hippopotamus in labor. Don’t worry, I’ll wait. NEXT B****

      girl rest

      • PSA (FAF) January 8, 2013

        2 producers said Mariah was lying… thats why I rarely come in these types of threads.. Sam just wants bait

      • ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ January 8, 2013

        They said it didn’t happen, they never said Mariah lied. The producers said that Nicki didn’t say she would shoot Mariah. Mariah said multiple people told her that Nicki said that so it was a she-said, he said story. I’m going to need proof where they said Mariah is a liar. NEXT.

    • ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ January 8, 2013

      “THIS THE SAME B**** THAT WAS GETTIN F***** BY RAPPERS THROUGHOUT THE LATE 90′S”

      Because rappers featured on her song, she slept with them? That makes Gimmick the biggest H** infested monkey then.

  9. King B>Rihanna January 8, 2013

    I’m the only one that thinks this feud is tired and played out.Mariah should pay Nicki dust and worry about her album and Nicki needs to take time off find mixtape and Pink friday Nicki Minaj then record another album.Feuds in music in general are just boring now.

    • tits mcgee January 8, 2013

      Your not the only one. *sighs*

  10. RIHANNA FAN January 8, 2013

      if that’s not singing, then i don’t know what is…she may not sound as great as she use to, but if rihanna was to stand next to her and sing, rihanna would sound mediocre. I love some of rihanna’s music, but you can’t be serious. Personally, rihanna to me is more of an entertainer, and a good recording studio artist. Live, she don’t sound so great.

  11. BEYSUS OVER JESUS January 8, 2013

  12. Lax January 8, 2013

    • tits mcgee January 8, 2013

      I agree with everything you just wrote. It’s very clear that that tired troll talking s*** is not a Rihanna fan. Everyone knows who it is. That same person post on Bey posts, with 50 names but the same avi!
      I guess someone told “it” to change the email address to seem like different people

      LOL. The s*** talk is still the same though… Smh

      That person is not even a real hive, because Bey loves Mariah, so a true fan would at least respect Mariah…

    • rihanna fan January 8, 2013

      b**** get over your delusions!!!!!! i dont respect flopriah at all, ive been a riri fan since 2007, mariah think she’s all high and mighty, b**** sit the f*** down. you are a fake rihanna fan if you like mariah.

  15. christinastherealtalent January 8, 2013

    Nicki is sooooo damn disrespectful. Shes the only coach on there making an ass of herself and needs to show more respect to those who paved the way for her tacky ass.

    • PSA (FAF) January 8, 2013

      She hasn’t spoken on it in months . Christina, she likes u, so lets not

  16. Fierce P**** January 8, 2013

    Damn I don’t know if that was shade or she was telling the truth. Either way, Rihanna and Nicki both are bad singers. At least MC USE to have a great voice than both of them combined. But anyways, looking forward to the show.

    • ELITE NAVY S***(RIHANNA NAVY) January 8, 2013

      B**** YOU DREAM ABOUT RIHANNA DONT YOU?

    • fan4mc January 8, 2013

      what do you mean she used to have a good voice.. she still does correction and still can slay

  17. Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 8, 2013

    Well Sam,

    You have no know the truth. NY post has just confirmed that Rita Whora is back to w**** ways. Rob said she slept with famous guys – one of those guys was Evan Ross. Evan Ross has a Longterm GF. Well, even her tour in at the end of this month – The tour that her management are trying to sell on twitter Instead of rehearsing, she was in NYC, hanging out at jay z club, taking pics of herself on rooftop AND…………publicly kissing up on EVAN ROSS at the gold bar in NYC.

    What kind of nonsense is this? And they say this w**** is gonna end rih’s career? HOW, buy f****** every dude she meets in clubs?

    Why is Beyonce endorsing this dirty eastern european girl? Pouring all this money into a lazy hypersexual cocky s***, who seems to party and f*** more than DROP AN LP IN AMERICA.

    beyonce self esteem must be at an all time low for her to act as suger mommy to this trick

    • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) January 8, 2013

      • ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ January 8, 2013

        How original, or did you copy it much like the way your fave copies Lil’Kim? Dirt attracts more dirt.

      • Petre January 8, 2013

        Same way Starbucks’s Free Wi-Fi attracts idiots like you to post irrelevant comments.

        Keep typing honey, maybe one day Lil’ Kim will notice your underacheiving existence on the web. 🙂

  22. Mark111 January 8, 2013

    I’m sorry, I don’t care for Mariah, but she done too much and is too great to have a clown brought up on every interview. An elephant don’t swat at flies. But this just give Nicki some song to sing about and fool her cheap toys. Mark my words, Micki is gonna meet for match soon.

  23. Monstarebel January 8, 2013

    Mariah looked a mess in precious…lol at Barbara reciting Nickis lyrics Yaaas

  24. Rev the Cool Nerd January 8, 2013

    “There’s some grammies…I look at the cases and I’m like
    ‘Wow, this is amazing…I did alright'” *tosses hand in the air*

    “I didn’t know she sang, I thought she rapped or whatever…” *looks away*

    #slain #dead #deceased

    Too much shade Mariah lmfaoooo She, literally, snatched Nicki’s entire wig
    collection in one line. She is “in the league of extraordinary women” (Got 2B Real)
    after all.

  25. JOHNVIDAL January 8, 2013

    The shade was amazing. On “I don´t know her” level. These lessors deserve it 🙂

  26. DeezNuts January 8, 2013

    “but im quick to check a b**** if she’s out of line.” “Are you the b**** she’s talking about Mariah?” lmfao Barbra Walters is an instigator! hahah

  27. speechless January 8, 2013

    I love how she acted ike she didnt know whether she was a singer or rapper lol

    • DeezNutz January 8, 2013

      Lmfao Knowing DAMN WELL Mariah asked Nicki Minaj to be on one of her singles! smfh!

      • Realest January 9, 2013

        you honestly think SHE asked her to be on her single? lol i doubt she even knew who she was until the label introduced then.. c’mon

  28. Sean January 8, 2013

    LET’S KEEP IT REAL.
    It is a SINGING competition, not a “I’M A RAPPER WHO THINKS I CAN SING, TOO” competition. Don’t get me wrong, I love Nicki. Girl has some crazy flow. But she’s not a singer. Just rememeber: haters are just closeted fans. So sip the haterate or you just might choke. Team Mimi for life!

    • DeezNutz January 8, 2013

      The show isnt about Nicki though babe. She’s just a judge. The show is about the contestants. Ellen did NOT get this much shade for judging and she has NO musical ability whatso ever. lol Paula cant sing and neither can Simon.

  29. HBF82 January 8, 2013

    VOICEriah LEGENDarey.

  30. Todd January 8, 2013

    Go MiMi!

  31. Musik_Lover January 8, 2013

    Don’t really care about what happened between Nicki & Mariah. It was unprofessional…if Mariah said something inappropriate about Nicki the mature thing to do would have been to get that heffa together privately. Or to make a wity comment back but not make threats & curse like a mad woman. And also to reference it in a song. Smh in the words of Mariah “I’ve been blessed to live my dream half of my life…” The shade between these two will never end but the best thing to do was to be the bigger person and not take it to that level. Mariah has Grammy’s and is an icon in this business and doesn’t use gimmicks because she has talent. Whether every song or album sold the woman has rightfully earned every dollar they are paying her on Idol. She’s a Diva!!!
