BEVERLY HILLS - Former American Idol Judge Steven "Lips" Tyler was at The Haven of Hair Salon getting his split ends cut when he was asked about the current controversy on this season's AI edition.
Tyler let out a laugh and nearly spilled his glass of Wild Turkey and Coke.
His personal hair stylist FuFi Fondue had said that he'd read in The Cucamonga Chit Chat Chronicle, that while holding auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina, that Nicki Minaj had called fellow judge Mariah Carey a prima donna diva with a whole bunch of adjectives of the vulgar-as-hell variety placed in front of the words prima donna diva.
The 64-year-old lead singer with Aerosmith noted that Mariah Carey is one of the nicest music celebrities he knows along with Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and James Taylor.
He then pointed out that Nicki Minaj on the other hand is one of the most arrogant, sarcastic, know-it-all, egomaniacs to ever sing into a microphone.
Tyler revealed that when he saw the video of Minaj getting up on the her chair and jumping up on the judges table that he thought she looked about as silly as chubby comedian Lisa Lampanelli trying to put a full-sized Butterball turkey between two slices of bread.
The man who dumped Kate "The Great" Gosselin earlier this year, said that Nicki is nothing but a hood rat and that she reminds him of a female Kanye West.
Keith Urban, who is the third judge on American Idol, simply said that Nicki's explosive actions reminded him of those of a mama kangaroo who has just noticed that her baby kangaroo has fallen out of her pocket.
SIDENOTE: American Idol Producer Simon Shindlebocker told Hollywood Innuendo that he is not going to put up with Miss Minaj's outlandish outbursts and if she explodes like a crazed banshee again he will have no choice but to hit her with a $10,000 fine and confiscate three of her ugly-as-hell wigs.
