On The View today, the co-host read from notes she took during a conversation with Carey in which the artist alleges "Nicki walked off the set and multiple people heard Nicki say, 'If I had a gun I would shoot the bitch.'"

Mariah also told Walters she has hired extra security to protect her from Minaj.

Nick Cannon has weighed in on the Mariah Carey vs. Nicki Minaj feud - and you'll never guess which side he's taking.

"My wife is the strongest and classiest woman that I’ve ever met," Cannon said today on Access Hollywood Live when asked about Minaj going off on Carey during an early Season 12 audition episode.

"If you watch the video, she just maintains her composure… I don’t think she’s moved by the theatrics and pageantry of it all. She signed up to do a job to help young people."

We've posted the video here.

It's been two days since Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban were confirmed as American Idol judges on Season 12.

And there's already talk of contention among panelists.

American Idol Team

According to show sources, Mariah Carey was peeved from the outset over Minaj possibly joining the judging table, considering the outspoken rapper would give the pop legend a run for her diva-like money.

Asked by reporters yesterday about the supposed tension between her and Minaj, Carey dismissed the chatter, saying: "How can we feud in two days? I think a feud takes a little longer."

Nicki didn't have anything negative to say about Mariah, either, labeling her very brief Idol experience - which includes a couple hours of auditions - so far as "wonderful."

Concluded Randy Jackson: "We're having fun, dude. We've been having a good time. There has been a lot of laughs."

Well... darn. Where's the gossip related fun in that?!?

“Nicki’s an unbelievably captivating international phenomenon who has made an indelible mark on rap and pop. And Keith is another great addition to Idol – he’s one of the biggest stars in country music and I know that our fans and contestants will fall in love with him,” said Mike Darnell, President of Alternative Entertainment for Fox.

“With an unparalleled star like Mariah, fan-favorite Randy, chart-toppers like Nicki and Keith and our incomparable host Ryan [Seacrest], we’ve put together one of the most exciting judging panels around.”

Do you agree? How do you feel about this quartet?

The economy. The war in Afghanistan. Nicki Minaj.

Barack Obama tackled all the important issues this morning during a radio interview with Orlando radio station Power 95.3.

Asked about Minaj's supposed endorsement of Mitt Romney - she rapped in a verse from "Mercy" that "I’m a Republican" - Obama sounded rather confident that his Presidential opponent doesn't actually have the vote of this rumored American Idol judge.

“I’m not sure that’s exactly what happened," Obama says in the following video. "She likes to play different characters.”

And it turns out - like the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden when he approved a SEAL team mission to take out that terrorist - Obama was correct!

“Ha! Thank you for understanding my creative humor & sarcasm Mr. President," Minaj Tweeted today. "The smart ones always do… *sends love & support.”

Sorry, Mitt. You'll always have Clint Eastwood.

Two of Hollywood's most eccentric stars made appearances on the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet last night.

First, rumored new American Idol judge Nicki Minaj posed in a skin-tight outfit, yellow hair sprouting out the sides of a stylish black hat.

Then there was Ke$ha, who... looked sort of normal. For Ke$ha at least. Flowing blonde hair and a lack of facial glitter is simply not what we expect from this singer.

Did the regular look throw you off? Did it top Nicki's outfit? Compare and vote below.
