Nicki Minaj flipped out at a female journalist who accused her of being unprofessional after she declined an interview backstage. "Honestly, if your day was really RUINED because i walked away from a question, rather than discuss something negative, u need a LIFE. Lmao," she tweeted.
Minaj was slammed by Laura Saltman of Access Hollywood in an article that described her alleged not-so-nice encounter with the "American Idol" judge. The reporter called out the female rapper for being "ungracious" and, unlike fellow judge Mariah Carey, having no class.
"Each week, she comes backstage for interviews and we are told 'two questions only'," Laura claimed. "She makes zero eye contact and has no connection to whomever is interviewing her. If she likes your question, she may give you a proper answer. If she doesn't, she may give you a dirty look and walk off."
She said, "The show didn't need Nicki," adding, "Mariah in the middle. Keith Urban on the right side. That's a panel that would have worked. Randy and Mariah have a long standing relationship and Keith is so kind-hearted, there would have been a good chemistry set up between the three."
Laura also criticized the Young Money star for calling Mariah "bitter" and "insecure" in some Twitter posts. "Nicki's comments yesterday on Twitter show who she really is - a mean girl, a cyber-bully who is just perpetuating the problems of social media," the reporter opined.
"She should choose her words more wisely. From what I have seen of her behavior since 'Idol' began, I'm not sure she is capable of this. She's a female rapper who should be proud of her accomplishments as a woman not cutting other women down."
"Yo @liltunechi. This h** want some trukfit. @laurasaltman," Minaj tweeted her former mentor Lil Wayne. The Harajuku Barbie added, "Like...why? I spk to these ppl every single week. Go above and beyond! And the one time i ignore your ignorance u try to paint a bad pic?"
"Like that man Billy Bush...like r u the fake ryan seacrest? like my g, who the f*k r u? lmao. i gotta laugh at this s**t. i swear to God. I used to let these ppl say whatever they wanted about me, not anymore. I am blessed & highly favored, not afraid of losing your acceptance."
"I wldve respected her had she pulled me aside like a BOSS. But going to your 'friends' to have them lash out against me on TV? grow up h**," Minaj continued.
Laura also got a death threat from Team Minaj. "So disturbing the hate some people have in their veins. I think my last retweet shows that. Very sad when it comes to this. Done. Goodnight," she wrote, referring to her previous RT "@micholekemp: @laurasaltman I'll kill u. For @nickiminaj come to Atlanta h**."
