Hot Shots: Mariah Carey & Nicki Minaj Pose Together In New ‘American Idol’ Promo

Published: Thursday 25th Oct 2012 by Sam

Their feud may have been one of the biggest showbiz stories of the year, yet that hasn’t stopped superstar Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj from pressing on with their American Idol duties…together.

The duelling divas are all smiles in this freshly released promo for the show, which features fellow judges Keith Urban and Randy Jackson, as well as host Ryan Seacrest.

Interestingly, the photoshoot took place just days removed from their infamous showdown; a period which saw tensions still sky-high.

That said, we’re entirely not surprised the drama is undetectable in the pic.  After all, The epic cheque (double digit millions) and  guaranteed media coverage for their upcoming projects will serve as insentive enough to simply slap on what we call the “air hostess smile” and get on with it.

      • SHARON October 26, 2012


  2. the real xoxo October 25, 2012

  3. Wacky O October 25, 2012

    Are people still talking bout this?

    • Memoirs of An Old Cow Dried Wet Fart October 25, 2012

      Lambs are talking because thats the only career Moomoo has!

      Sad, isnt it??????? 🙁

      • MC October 25, 2012

        Dedicated your life to Mariah I see. I feel ashamed! Clearly you are a bigger stan than I am. The shame of that.

      • Memoirs of An Old Cow Dried Wet Fart October 25, 2012

        MooMoo will swallow few big buckets of KFC after the season ended…just wait..


      • MC October 25, 2012

        Don’t worry lamb, she’ll still be getting $20 mil/year from royalties and $18 mil/year for idol. You’re so sweet. How long have you been a lamb? 🙂

    • Memoirs of An Imperfect Old Chicken Wings October 25, 2012

      for a redundant diva named her album K=Fc2


      • Martha lewinsky October 25, 2012

        bahahaha!!! K=Fc2 dead

      • It’s Utterly Bizaar! October 25, 2012

        ‘Memoirs of An Imperfect Old Chicken Wings’ sounds like a generic madonna stan! They repeat the same crap over and over about Mariah and k=fc2 chicken. Tired and Old! Next.

  5. Realest October 25, 2012

    Wow funny how Mariah is like 12/13 years older than Nicki and is still 12 times more gorgeous and natural looking than Nicki.. Not taking anything away from Nicki because she looks cute to. For a trillion lbs of make up, fake eyes (contacts), tons of plastic surgery/bleaching, and wigs galore- she’s just not a stunnning timeless beauty like Marrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriah. Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?

    • Monstarebel October 25, 2012

      They both look good stoop it

      • Realest October 25, 2012

        Read it again, I said Nicki looked cute.

      • Monsters Rebel October 25, 2012

        desperate whores with no sales…. 🙁

    • I DON’T SPEAK VERMIN!! October 25, 2012

      Excuse me but there’s NOT a female in the industry that looks better than Nicki Minaj. Nicki runs circles around all y’all’s faves including Mariah, Bey, Rihanna, Missy, Eve and definitely Lil’Kim. Nicki is owning these other females… Not just an opinion, It’s true facts.

    • truth(chile i PATS MY PHAT P**** like Rhi at haters and funky nicki stans hun-TAE)) October 25, 2012


    • prettigurlrockD bitchess October 25, 2012

      I agree. Nicki is cute but there are tons of females in the industry better looking than her esp in the face.

  6. XoMoDe October 25, 2012

    You see they ain’t standing next to each other…

  7. The Chosen One October 25, 2012

    I’m a Nicki stan and I’m so dissapointed with this photo shoot. If I were her, I would’ve wore something more dressy than casual and trendy.

    But. She still looks beautiful and so does Mariah.

    • Monstarebel October 25, 2012

      does it matter b**** you ain’t wearing the outfit

    • It’s Utterly Bizaar! October 25, 2012

      Becuz Nicki is a Kim Clone/Clown dahling!

  8. Realest October 25, 2012

    Well here you have it.. The difference between a WOMAN and a girl. Mariah, the WOMAN, has on a beautiful floor length gown by the ICONIC house of Yves Saint Laurent. And Miss Nicki,the GIRL has on a Forever 21 exclusive that the mannequins have on in the window display.. There you have it folks.

    • Monstarebel October 25, 2012

      gurl shut up they both look good y’all just find the most simplest things to hate about

      • Realest October 25, 2012

        I didn’t say Nicki looked bad, where did I say say Nicki looked bad? I just said she had on Forever 21, which she does. You can’t handle the truth? Sounds personal.

      • LovelyLopez October 25, 2012

        Forever 21? Much like Mariah’s dress size.

    • drayner October 25, 2012

  13. Monstarebel October 25, 2012

  15. Close Coffin October 25, 2012

    Queen of 90s Payola Effect Mariah cant sell album.s… LOL

    • Realest October 25, 2012

      Yes queen of the 90’s but still had the song of the decade (we belong together) from 2000-2010 crowned by billboard, 4four #1 singles 2000-2010 and one of the best selling albums of the decade/album of 2005 “The Emancipation of Mimi” plus over 15 million records sold in that period. Lol you sound very VERY pressed.

    • ImMadAsHell October 25, 2012

      To bad payola isn’t working for 7 of Nicki singles. 8 singles only one pop, Starships.

  16. yawn yawm October 25, 2012

    Mooriah looking exactly like retired 90s p*** actress…sad. Some people refused to change. Money cant buy style….it;s true!

  17. Monstarebel October 25, 2012

    I have so much respect for Mariah shes a true legend b****** like brandy beyonce Christina GaGa even My Fav Rihanna have nothing on her career… So y’all really needs to show respect for the true queen

    • Oh Nooooooooooooo October 25, 2012

      🙂 fact doesnt

  20. Realest October 25, 2012

    There is no comparison between Minaj and Mariah.. Mariah has inspired ALL of your favs: Beyonce, Rihanna, Leona Lewis, Pink, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Usher, John Legend, Miley Cyrus and even NICKI MINAJ… Now Ms. Minaj has inspired; Willow Smith….. Call Mariah a flop, fat WHATEVER but she is FOREVER cemented in the music books as one of the greatest and most successful vocalists of all time NEVER using a gimmick to sell a record just that voice and talent- not to mention she is in the top 5 richest women in entertainment with and estimated 1/2 billion dollars.. Beyonce, Riri- NONE of them are even coming close so INSULTS DO NOTHING TO THE TRUTH. Stay pressed CHILDREN.

    • TruthTeller October 25, 2012

      Never using a gimmick to sell? I will let you delusional lambs believe that lie

      • pressed H*** October 25, 2012

        imma p*** on your face if you say one more thing you s***** ass f***

      • MC October 25, 2012

        We are talking about Mariah, not Nicki Garbaj. Show me some receipts that Mariah used gimmicks to sell…..I’ll wait. Still waiting

    • opd2 October 25, 2012

      REALEST you on a roll an’t you,sam need to get reed of this thumb system because it keep pumping these lames the more thumbs up they get the more they get gas up.

  21. GaGaArtPoppin October 25, 2012

    Oh Mariah. Your old ass can’t sell albums any more can it?
    If i were you I’d forget about releasing anywhere near ARTPOP because if you do your morale will be just as low as your tiddays as they swing across your knees.

    • Realest October 25, 2012

      I hope Artpop doesnt turn into ArtFLOP just like “Born This Way” turned into “Born To Flop”.. Lol Mariah’s second album sold 5 Million copies boo.. Gaga’s can’t compare.. Sorry

      • BornThisSlay October 25, 2012

        What do you mean b****? BTW shipped 8 million and sold 5 so please take this seat that i will kick back as soon as you proceed to sit on it.

        Mariah’s last two albums haven’t even sold 600,000 copies COMBINED!!

      • Mimi4life October 25, 2012

        more like Art poop


      • MC October 25, 2012

        1. Born this flop sold 5 mil world wide even with the .99 cents 1st day and 2 for 1 deal. F.L.O.P. the next “Thriller” my ass.
        2. Mariah’s last albums have all sold more than 500,000 in the U.S. Her last album MOIA has sold 1.5 mil in the world.
        Keep pulling s*** out of your ass. Reductive b****, just like your fave.

  22. Minaj4U October 25, 2012

    personaly , mariah has nothing to worry about .
    real talk

  27. Christina Beautifuleira October 25, 2012

    Mariah could do with losing a few pounds, she’s giving me albino precious teas in that picture.
    I’ve thought of some names for her new album.

    Butterfly Wings (Crispy Fried)
    The Emancipation Of Milkshake.
    Charmed Chicken.
    Vision Of Taco Bell
    Jlo Stole My Songs Again

    • pressed H*** October 25, 2012

      How’s flop your body doing on the charts oops

      • Christina Beautifuleira October 25, 2012

        Much better than Triumphant which didn’t even chart.

      • Monstarebel October 25, 2012

        that s*** couldn’t even get into the top 20 & is now out the top 50 F*** this h**

    • Monstarebel October 25, 2012

      b**** you f****** tried TF outta it that b**** XXXLtina is the b**** who needs to lose weight Mariah is in her 40s and looks fabulous Christinas obese ass is in her early 30s & looks hungry tired messy & washed up don’t you ever come for the queen you ugly m*****

      • Oh Nooooooooooooo October 25, 2012

        Mariah the ugly cow….suitable for adult pampers/d***** towel…

      • prettigurlrockD bitchess October 25, 2012

        Xtina this era>Mariah 2 decades ago. Truth hurts. And yes look at the views for your body on youtube and compare to flopumphant. Your body not a smash hit but if YB is a flop calling triumphant a hit would be laughable as well.

    • MC October 25, 2012

      “Mariah could do with losing a few pounds” says the stan of an fat woman. Sorry she’s not your preferable size of 50 like your fave Xtina.

  28. Christina Beautifuleira October 25, 2012

    Oh, I forgot one.


    There, album titles done. Pick and choose betches! (twerks to Primadonna)

  29. JOHNVIDAL October 25, 2012

    They look good
    But seriously these retarded kids defending nicki Minaj (need I say more?) or Gaga for example need to stfu. You are giving your faves a bad name. I´m sure Gaga and others with proper musical skills wish they could have Mariah´s talent and career cos they know who the true greats are

  30. Martha lewinsky October 25, 2012

    drunkriah actually looks human is this photo, Nicki looks flawless as always. and what’s up with Randy Jackson’s shoes?

  31. MC October 25, 2012

    I just wish the haters would be interesting and not the same old boring s***. You can call Mariah fat, old, flop, has-been, etc it STILL doesn’t change her accomplishments and her legacy. Resume your hating, she will still be Mariah Carey, un-bothered and perched while your faves will be gone after a few years. #thestruggle

    • LovelyLopez October 25, 2012

      Stick a chicken wing in it will you?

      • MC October 25, 2012

        I will when J-ho finds and keeps a man her age. #poorthing

    • Monstarebel October 25, 2012

      Yaaaaas @MC these h*** have nothing original to say it’s ok tho let em hate

      • MC October 25, 2012


      • OnThe6 October 25, 2012

        Hahahaha. Look who is talking about men their age. How about men their size! I really hope Mariah doesn’t like getting on top because if she does Nick’s rib cage is in trouble.

        Don’t be mad that Jlo is 43 but looking like she just came out of college. Casper is giving her that good good EVERY night and Mariah wishes she could have a man as fantastic as him because she all she has is a b**** ass eunuch/assistant/fanboy.

        Tommy had the right idea when he gave her the songs Mooriah was too crazy to record. Trip down memory lane?

      • MC October 25, 2012

        I am not mad J-ho that is paying for s** and can’t keep a man. I don’t care what that white, woman-beating, coke-addict Eminem has to say. All talk and no action. Always dissing people that aren’t his size. Lol! Show me the receipts where Tommy gave Mariah songs to sing. Mariah writes and produces all her songs, something your deflated-ass, rundown, flop, talentless fave knows nothing about. J-ho is not on Mariah’s level. Go pick up another flop copy of J-ho’s projects from the past 10 years. Goodbye.

    • ImMadAsHell October 25, 2012

      It’s weird though, Mariah 2nd cd didn’t flop in her prime. Can we say the same for Nicki 2nd cd?

      & she lost her pespi deal to Beyonce. Did ThatGrapefruit print that news yet???

  32. mob: TGJ & it’s continued b******* October 25, 2012

    Lying again we see. Sure they are photoraphed tgether wtith someone between them! LOL 🙂 When is Ryan Freakrest going to fall out the closet?

    Nicki GARBAJ is spiraling into the land of IRRELEVANCY with her flop album & flop singles 🙂 😕

    If I were a contestant on AI, I would SPIT in this h***’ face for trying to judge MY talent when she has none herself 🙂

    • prettigurlrockD bitchess October 25, 2012

      and you must be gum on the bottom of her shoe if she’s irrelevant. Arn’t you a khia stan?? That says enough right there 😀 😀

    • ImMadAsHell October 25, 2012

      Since ThatGrapefruit isn’t going to tell you, I thought i will. Nicki lost her pespi deal to Beyonce.

      • JER October 26, 2012

        LOLLLLL I know you didn’t! BeYAWNce said she wanted that Pepsi deal and it WAS SO. That’s how BIONCI works. So hide your hits, hide your samples, put yal youtubes on private, yal soundclouds cuz BEY is on the lookout for new material!!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. That B*tch (Rihllama’s downfall) October 25, 2012

    I guess that fight really was a publicity stunt. They look mighty happy here.
    Nice picture nonetheless.

  36. Todd October 25, 2012

    All that hate for what? You guys even took the time to change ur names to whoriah , f****** , etc. – ‘u so so lame ‘n no one here even mentions ur name”

  37. DIOB October 25, 2012

    Just being real this promo pic looks odd. They don’t really mesh well as a team. I don’t watch the x factor but even they look more put together and the voice coachs look great as well.

    Dear Divas,

    This is how you dress for a shoot!!! *see Mariah Carey*

  43. theman October 25, 2012

    Mariah looks amazing !

  44. Suicide Blonde October 25, 2012

    They all look good even Nicki, lol, by the way don’t hate me Mariah Fans but i love Eminem, best rapper ever for me, not to mention that he is one of my husbands.

    • MC October 25, 2012

      I actually don’t mind Eminem. I just hate it when people use him to diss Mariah. Eminem in not attractive (slim-shady is though). Eminem is not the best rapper (pretty darn good though), that honor goes to 2Pac.

      • Suicide Blonde October 25, 2012

        To me he is the best, i love him and i find him f*****’ s***, i’m sorry for that.

      • MC October 25, 2012

        Don’t be! If he is what you like, then he is what you like. No harm, no foul. 😉

  45. beafan October 25, 2012

    its look like photoshoped..

    just look at Keith leg..

  46. JER October 26, 2012

    Mariah is showing yal faves how a thick b**** is supposed to look. Take note because Mimi is serving snatched big girl REALNESS. She’s giving me on point Mariah weight, not too big, no “Touch My Body” here child aint nobody got time for dat!!!!!! Mariah looks AMAZING. She’s owning that REAL skin tone and that classic honey hair colour and also serving THE GIRLS as always. I’m just loving this. POW

  47. ImMadAsHell October 26, 2012

    I just want to say that Mariah had a career before she did her 12th cd. Mariah 2nd cd, I’m sure went platinum in a week.

    Now lets see how long before Nicki 2nd cd goes platinum. We know already that it’s not platinum after 6 months.
