American Idol - Is Mariah Carey Throwing A Diva Strop Over Nicki Minaj On American Idol?

Are we on the verge of another diva-style hissy fit from Mariah Carey? Judging by her Twitter account, Mariah seems none too pleased that she's not been kept in the loop over American Idol 's recruitment process. Carey's already confirmed as one of next season's judges but as it looks increasingly likely that Nicki Minaj will be joining Mariah on American Idol. Mariah seems to be scrabbling around for other options. We're not sure exactly what's upset her but maybe she doesn't like the idea of being upstaged by Minaj, who - let's face it - isn't exactly scared of hogging the limelight, given half a chance.
On Monday (August 20, 2012), Mariah tweeted the message "?AmericanIdol? What's going on? need the info!! What about this combo? : ) if we could ever get him to do it!" and the message was accompanied by a snap of Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz stood together and posing for cameras. Not exactly the best way of welcoming a new colleague, is it Mariah? By publicly suggesting an alternative? Of course, it could be that Mariah simply wants Lenny to be the third judge on the show, alongside her and Nicki. She's said no more on the matter, but then again, neither have the bosses at the Fox network. Or Nicki's management. Looks like we'll just have to be patient and wait for an official announcement on that one.
Meanwhile, Mariah has been proving that she's still got what it takes in the world of heavyweight pop, with the release of her latest single 'Triumphant' The video for the track, which features Rick Ross and Meek Mill features Mariah in a boxing ring, parading around with the round numbers, in a variety of skimpy gold outfits.
