The American Idol’s new season hasn’t been aired yet but expect more drama on the set.

Nicki Minaj and ex- “AI” judge Steven Tyler have been wedged in a war of words. It fired off in an interview with MTV News when the Aerosmith singer Tyler criticized the newly installed judges panel for their lack of friendship in light of the well-publicized dispute between judges Minaj and Mariah Carey.

Tyler was quoted as saying, “They should have something going on so thick and beautiful that they can lay it over the new talent that’s trying to birth itself. These kids, they just got out of a car from the Midwest somewhere and they’re in New York City, they’re scared to death; you’re not going to get the best out of them.”

Upon learning Tyler’s following comment it makes Minaj blow one’s top that event sent her pink wig flying off. Tyler’s following coment: “If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying.”

A furious Minaj hit back on her Twitter…“Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven’t seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet!"

Minaj continued…“I understand you really wanted to keep your job but take that up with the producers. I haven’t done anything to you. That’s a racist comment.”

She went on further…“You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go [xxxxx] yourself and worry about yourself babe."

Eventually she concluded… “When Steven 1st went on Idol he was ridiculed by his peers & fans alike. Called a sell out. So what does he do? Ridicule the next judge.”
