Mariah Carey's Meltdown!

American Idol judge Mariah Carey watches Bruno on loop for eight hours as Nicki Minaj feud escalates

We knew she was a diva, but Mariah Carey’s been taking her cray-cray behaviour to whole new levels of late. It turns out she really, really loves the film Bruno and reports have surfaced that the warbler splurged $1,500 (Dhs5,500) on an eight-hour massage in her LA mansion and requested her treatment be accompanied by her favourite Sacha Baron Cohen flick on loop!

A source told Us Weekly, “She insisted Bruno play on repeat. It looped the entire time!” It seems Mariah’s ongoing feud with fellow American Idol judge Nicki Minaj is starting to take its toll on the mum-of-two and is allegedly the reason she needed an eight-hour massage, but her bosses “love the drama”. A show insider revealed, “They feel like they’ve struck gold.”

The Daily Mail added, “Filming on American Idol had to be called to a halt earlier this month when Mariah and Nicki clashed over a contestant.” Apparently, Minaj called Maz “boring” and threatened her saying “off with your head”!

Nicki then continued to diss Mariah on Twitter before an insider spilled that producers are delighted, despite the effect the constant feuding is having on their judges. “This is one of the best, most passionate, dynamic and invested judging panels we’ve ever had,” they said.

So big is their feud in the US that even President Obama got involved. “I think that they’re going to be able to sort it out, I am confident,” Barack Obama told a reporter.

Frankly, we’d like to see more prominent figures wade into celeb feuds. Just imagine what Queen Liz would say?!
