It’s one thing to respond, but it’s another thing to go overboard and come off a little cray cray. Being as high profile and polarizing as Nicki Minaj is, it’s understandable that she wants to address a few of the numerous negative comments about her. She is human after all. I like the “Starships” rapper but her tweets to recently-ousted American Idol contestant Devin Velez are a bit too much. When you’re in the position of power, simply ignoring his comments or responding eloquently would’ve been a better choice. Check out Velez’s response below to Nicki’s Twitter tirade (shown later in the post).
“That moment when an adult stoops down to the 3rd grade level…LOL grow up Hun, I’ve got songs to write. :) #movingforward,” Devin Velez
Velez, during one of his elimination interviews, commented that he felt that Minaj was the one judge who didn’t want to use the one “Judges’ Save” on him. I totally agree with that sentiment as well and said it in my recap. He continued that Nicki favors the girls and that her critiques can be “crazy.” He jokingly says that perhaps she was in a bad mood on last Wednesday’s show because both Mariah Carey and her were wearing the same color that night. LOL, but probably true. Read several tweets sent by Nicki in response to Devin’s comments.
“Lol. Be mad @ AMERICA when u get sent home. The JUDGES are the ones who FOUGHT for America to get the opp to VOTE 4 U!!! #memba? … America r the ‘potential’ fans. U MUST win them over. ‘Saves’ are bulls*** and they know it. Those girls are just too good this year”
“Send the judges some flowers and a card. If Curtis didn’t get SAVED, NONE of u get saved! Best male voice of the SEASON!!!!!!!!!!!”
“Trust me BEW BEW. If EYE didn’t want u in that TOP, YOU wldnt have been in that TOP. Fought for ALL of you. So just simply b gracious.” She concluded her messages, “Jennifer Hudson didn’t win!!! Oscar Winner! #memba??? ok. Take that exposure and let your light shine.” – Nicki Minaj
Can you imagine the world without Twitter? I love it when celebrities go a bit unhinged on the micro-blogging site. Admittedly, I’ve sent out a couple comments here and there online that I regret. Who hasn’t? We’re all human and sometimes react before thinking. What do you think of Nicki’s tweets? Sound off below.
