For one reason or another, Mariah Carey has always struggled to ‘play nice’ many of her contemporaries throughout her success laden career.

From Christina Aguilera to Madonna and Jennifer Lopez, many a chart belle has found themselves on the wrong end of Carey’s wit, or if reports from  ‘American Idol’s set are to believed, her condescending nature.

However, after being confronted by fellow ‘Idol’ judge Nicki Minaj for being just as condescending with her, ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer Aubrey O’Day has come out in Carey’s defense.

Her tweet below…


 “Give me an inch I’ll take a yard/ Oh lighten up y’all know I was comin’ back real hard.”

Check out the above pic of Rap icon Lil Kim enjoying the company of record producer Verse Simmonds recently, shared with fans via the social networking site Twitter.

Verse, for those who don’t know, is most renown for the contributions his ‘Juggernauts’ played in producing Rihanna‘s provocative number ‘Man Down’, which featured on her 2010 LP ‘Loud’ and remixed by Kim for her polarizing ‘Black Friday‘ mix tape.

Prompting speculation that the pair are to collaborate, the shot was reportedly snapped in a recording studio weeks after the MC promised the release of new material to fans during New York Fashion Week.
