Nicki Minaj fires back at Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler after the former “Idol” judge dissed her abilities on the show.
In a recent interview former American Idol judge Steven Tyler trashed Nicki Minaj’s judging skills telling MTV,
“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,”
The comment didn’t sit well with Minaj.
“Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield???” she wrote on Twitter. “Steven, you haven’t seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet! You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? Why? Black? Rapper? What? Go f— yourself and worry about yourself babe.
“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.”
In the end, the rapper came to her own conclusion over why Tyler would say such a thing:
“When Steven first went on Idol he was ridiculed by his peers and fans alike. Called a sell out So what does he do? Ridicule the next judge.”
