The annual Met Gala took place last night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Fashionistas and celebrities donned their couture best to embody this year’s theme, “PUNK: Chaos to Couture.” The red carpet pictures have been working their way online since last night, but now it’s the photos from inside the gala that are making the rounds.
Out of all the pictures that Nicki Minaj could’ve snapped inside the event, the 30-year-old rapper posted two that seem to take aim at her fellow American Idol judge. First up is a “chance” meeting with Tommy Mottola and his wife, singer Thalia. If you recall, Mottola was the man behind Mariah Carey’s success. The two were also married but ended in a bitter divorce. He recently published a tell-all book on his time with the multi-octave vocalist.
Second up is an Instagram pic of Jennifer Lopez and Barbz. Recently, there were rumors that American Idol had a secret backup plan to replace Carey midseason with Lopez. All parties have denied it, but since that report came out, there have been more tense interactions between Carey and Minaj on and off the panel. Just last week, Nicki called out Mariah on Twitter about being old and insecure. Ouch. Check out the pics below.
Do you think both pics are much ado about nothing, or did Nicki actively seek out Lopez and Mottola for the photo ops? Sound off below.
