Nicki Minaj appears on “Ellen” (Jan. 15, 2013)

*It seems like the Nicki Minaj v. Mariah Carey drama has carried on forever. Since the two joined the show, their names, together, have appeared in headlines over whatever beef they’ve got with one another.

But Nicki says she’s very much over the past and quite frankly doesn’t remember why they were feuding in the first place.

“I don’t know. It was like two big old divas, I guess,” Nicki said on Tuesday’s “Ellen.”  The rapper acknowledged that she’d heard Mariah was not thrilled to have Nicki on the judge’s panel. Initially, Nicki didn’t believe it, but the two eventually clashed, Minaj said.

“At this point, there’s really nothing else to talk about regarding the matter,” she continued. The rapper added that she can’t hold a grudge against the singer. However, she did admit that she’s not looking forward to the new season – being that Mariah is going to continue being Mariah and their personalities may clash again.

“I just want it to go well. It’s about the contestants, we’ve got a lot of great talent,” she told Ellen, adding, “I don’t want anyone on the panel to say something crazy because I don’t want to look like a crazy psycho again.”
