A source on the American Idol set tells us the fight that broke out between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj yesterday was nothing more than a set up created by the folks behind the scenes at the reality show, and TMZ was also along for the ride. “It was all for hype and ratings,” says the source. Adding, “Nothing about it was real. They were acting.”
We have to admit we did find it highly suspicious that TMZ just so happened to be there to catch the feud between Carey and Minaj on camera, and to have it confirmed that it was, in fact, a publicity stunt, does not come as a shock to us.
Despite Idol’s attempt at getting hype for the show, we still won’t be watching.
