Nicki is striking back at Steven Tyler after the former ‘American Idol’ judge spoke about her negatively in a new interview — calling him out on Twitter! Read on for all the details.

The new judging panel on American Idol has generated plenty of headlines after the drama between new judgesNicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. One of the judges they replaced, Steven Tyler, isn’t afraid to let people know he isn’t a fan of the new judges — and Nicki’s not very happy about it!

When speaking with MTV News on Nov. 21, Steven admitted he isn’t a fan of Nicki’s reportedly brash judging style. “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],” Steven said. “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,” he concluded.

Let the Twitter Fight BEGIN!

The story, which wasn’t released until Nov. 26, didn’t sit well with Nicki. “Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven’t seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet!” she tweeted.

But it didn’t stop there. Nicki continued, saying “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 concluded with her angriest tweet in the bunch. “You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go f**k yourself and worry about yourself babe.”

Who do you think was in the wrong, HollywoodLifers? Steven or Nicki?

I liked the judges last season. Keith, Mariah, and Randy are awesome but as far as Nikki she needs to learn respect and keep her sexual comments to herself. Isn’t this suppose to be a family show? Come one Idol get a judge in there that knows how to treat pple and has been around awhile. Nikki needs to go back home and get some leasons on respect and manners. I don’t like her nor her singing oh uhmmmmm her rap what ever you call it…put a sock in it Nikki…are you on drugs Nikki?? she is EVIL…it’s not ALL about you NIKKI!!!!!!!!!!!

It wasn’t racist. NM is just too stupid to know that cornfields are in the Midwest and if someone goes back to the Midwest it is going back to the cornfields.
She is probably the hater because it is a cut to a rural black person to say they came from back on the farm by Northern black folks, which means from the Deep South. So she hears cornfields and thinks he says she would send someone there cause she is one of those from back on the farm.

Steve Tyler and others would maybe respect her, if she learned how to be humble/respectful to others. She clearly shouldn’t be on Idol, she has no real place there. Seriously, a rapper, with only ONE album out, that’s been released three different times over the course of 2 yrs. A rapper, who every time she sings, they auto-tune her voice. If she continues disrespecting these major industry vices, her career will be over before it can even begin.

Nicki should show respect for people that have been in the business longer than she’s been alive. Steven is right in his comments and it is laughable that she says he said something racist. She is the Omerosa of American Idol. Fire her @ss…
