Nicki Minaj vs. Mariah Carey and the Female Weezy's Five Best Bitch Feuds

American Idol has only just begun filming its 11th season. But in the grand tradition of Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell, two of

the recent additions to the judges' table are already at each other's

Pop stars turned Idol

officials, Nicki

Minaj and Mariah Carey, really fucking hate each other.

While Mimi is certainly an exciteable 21st-century North American diva, history points to Ms. Minaj as the probable instigator.

After the jump, check out five of Crossfade's favorite Nicki Minaj bitch beefs.

Nicki vs. Cher

During the Dark Ages, conflict was resolved in public death matches

that doubled as popular sports entertainment. Fast forward through The

Enlightenment and The Industrial Revolution, and Mankind evolved

beyond jousting in suits of armor, opting instead for duels fixed around firearms. Thankfully,


Twitter Age has reduced conflict to poorly articulated

disses expressed in 140 characters or less.

Nicki vs. Azealia Banks

This is still a Twitter feud. But at least it's with another female rapper, not Cher. With fire tracks like "212," Ms. Banks may be poised

to one day overtake the Female Weezy. But for now, only the latter is

famous enough to sit in the Paula's chair on American


Nicki vs. Rihanna

At the most recent edition of MTV's

flagship bullshit-a-palooza (AKA the station's flagship annual Video

Music Awards), Nasty

Nicki reportedly barked at R&B dance-pop siren Rihanna to "sit the

fuck down" when RiRi stood up to hug her following "Starships"

win for Best Female Video. No question, the Ninja was being a

straight-up biatch. But don't worry. Rihanna got her back when "We Found

Love" won video of the year.

Nicki vs. Hot 97

Minaj was slotted to perform a headlining, showstopping set at the

most recent edition of legendary NYC hip-hop station Hot 97's annual

Summerjam festival. But when DJ Peter Rosenberg made a crack about her prescence on the

lineup, Young Money honcho Lil' Wayne took the jab seriously, and

pulled his female protege from the lineup. What then ensued was a

glorious, shit-talking mess complete with Nicki Minaj sparring on-air

with Funkmaster Flex.

Nicki Minaj vs. Lil' Kim vs. Trina

In the '90s, girl power was a communal experience. Ladies had each other's

backs and liberally

applied Spice Girls deoderant as a olfactory display of Third Wave

feminism. But in the post-queer, pomo-2000s, the only hope for

Womankind is a rip-yo-weave-out catfight to determine, once and for all, who is truly the baddest bitch.
