The Aerosmith front man had a lot to say about fellow judge Nicki Minaj…
Steven told MTV News:
“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]. 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 [Idol season 11 winner] Phillip Phillips. Just saying.”
Nicki didn’t appreciate those comments at all
Nicki responded: “Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven’t seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet!
“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. You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? Why? Black? Rapper? What? Go f*ck yourself and worry about yourself, babe.”
She added: “When Steven [first] went on Idol he was ridiculed by his peers and fans alike. Called a sell out. So what does he do? Ridicule the next judge.”
