Nicki Minaj has a rep for letting her mouth get her in trouble. She definitely has not let being the new judge on American Idol force her to holder her tongue. She has been brutally honest with contestants on the show, and now she going in on contestents eliminated from the show too! US Weekly reports:

On Friday, March 29, mere hours after eliminated contestant Devin Velez suggested to reporters that the “Freedom” singer had it out for him because he wasn’t a girl, Minaj took the ousted 18-year-old to task on Twitter.

“Lol. Be mad @ AMERICA when u get sent home. The JUDGES are the ones who FOUGHT for America to get the opp to VOTE 4 U!!! #memba?” she wrote.

Minaj, 30, had the opportunity on Thursday to “save” the bilingual crooner from elimination but chose not to use her one card. Earlier in the week, she slammed Velez and his group for their performance of the 1965 Four Tops hit “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch),” saying, “I’m gonna act like I didn’t see that or hear that.”

“America r the ‘potential’ fans…u MUST win them over,” she tweetedafter, in response to Velez’s insinuations that she had been too hard on him. “‘Saves’ are bulls–t and they know it. Those girls are just too good this year.”

“Send the judges some flowers and a card. If Curtis [Finch Jr.] didn’t get SAVED, NONE of u get saved! Best male voice of the SEASON!!!!!!!!!!! #TruthTea,” she continued. “Trust me BEW BEW. If EYE didn’t want u in that TOP, YOU wldnt have been in that TOP. Fought for ALL of you. So just simply b gracious.”

Velez, a resident of Chicago and one of judge Mariah Carey’s  favorite Idol hopefuls, hinted to US WEEKLY after his elimination that he thought Minaj was at least partly to blame for his departure. “I think I know who didn’t want to put me through,” he said.

“I don’t know, she has a lot of girl power…Maybe she just wants a girl to win, you know?” he continued. “Just the fact that the girls have been so consistent with their songs and have such higher votes — I mean, the girls are amazing this year, and I have nothing bad to say about any of the contestants. As for the judges, you know…”

  1. In the case of American Idol, the type of people who are watching the show also tends to heavily reflect on who the winner will be. Thanks to the success of shows like Nashville Star there are very few country music sensations coming from the American Idol camp. However, you do on occasion have a country treasure to find, after all Carrie Underwood and a few other Idol rejects are doing extremely well in country music. The personality of the viewers tends to show in the actual contestants. Those who perform well in styles of music that the audience can connect with tend to stay on the show much longer.*

  2. I really like to watch American Idol because you can always find some common people with lots of gifted talent in that tv show. This is a great singing contest that everyone must watch.
