Nick Cannon Says Mariah Is Unmoved By Nicki Minaj’s “Theatrics”

Kid Fury October 3, 2012 Fall Into The Shade! 47 Comments

We all knew it was only matter of time before Nick Cannon came to his wife’s defense. After yesterday’s leaked video of an argument between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj on the American Idol set, Nicholas had this to say about the incident.

“My wife is the strongest and the classiest woman I’ve ever met. If you watch the video she just maintains her composure like she does. I don’t think she’s moved by the theatrics and the pageantry of it all. She signed up to do a job to help young people accomplish their dreams. I hope this is not what the show is about, is the cat fights.”

Mama said “the pageantry of it all.” If that ain’t a rich butch queen’s way of saying “she paid it,” nothing ever will be. Still this should teach Nicki to let go of her hoodrat afflictions and learn to shade with the best of them. That finger-wagging shit is for the birds.

    Mariah owns nick. he is such a pussy

    • dark paradise

      he’s doing what a husband is suppose to do stand by his woman

      • diggybaybay

        RIGHT! its like a no win for black men…its typical if they treat their women like crap but when they actually STAND by and speak up for their woman than their a pussy….*sigh* Black folks are determined to maintain that “crabs in a barrel” mentality.

      • Respectata

        Yes that’s right

    • serenissima

      Mariah has arab money… a net worth of 500 mil (in comparison to Nicki’s 12 mil), so she damn sure does own nick. Onika had it right when she called MC  ’her highness.’ Nick had better be there with umbrella and shade when she snaps her fingers… shit, she can own me, too. ill let butterflies loose every hour on the hour in dem babies rooms and bathe mc in glitter bubble baths for that kind of cash.

      Lol I know in the video its hard to understand what exactly Nicki and Mariah were saying, so I found a link where Nick Cannon participating in reading the transcript of what was said.

      I don’t know if I was the only one who wanted to know what was going on/being said, but YES GAWD! @ the tea..lmfao

    • Radon Kong

      Nigga, Mariah Carey can own me too. With only 1/18th of Earthworm Jim’s weekly allowance, and a pair of signed Swarovski encrusted heels, that I can sell on ebay. Everybody has a price. Let me be Mr-Mrs. Mariah Carey, every word from my mouth would be like fine lineaments, perfumed oils, and frankincense with which to anoint her praise and speak of her glory. Don’t let my ass be kept, I will SICKEN YOU.

    Nick is so shady…I love it. He paid Nicki in dust and debris.

    • serenissima

      lmaaoooo i weep! 

    • Sharanda Norman

      he paid that bird and tipped it. 

  • NYCNaye

    Dark Paradise, you better preach!

  • PhroYo

    Why is Nicki on this panel with Mariah again? 

    • Mzshere20

      Because nobody watches American Idol and they needed something to try to boost ratings. They figure Nicki and Mariah going at it will do the trick. That’s what Ryan Seacrest is saying

  • Ms. I Stay 1Hunna

    She not supposed to be moved by Nicholas’ antics. Legends sip tea and flip their hair unbothered. Let that man support his wife. lol

  • Ebony

    Nicholas Minaj need to jump back into the pack of LIMITED EDITION Neon Hi-Lighters that she came from. The real shade is the fact that she is even on the show. I know she wouldn’t have pulled that hoodrich stunt on Ms. Whitney (R.I.P), Monica, or even Missy Elliot. Mrs. Cannon can roll with it, but she needed to put her in her place. 

  • honestlymonique

    Like I said on twitter i don’t have a problem with a man sticking up for his wife, what i do have a problem with is him acting like he wasn’t there on standby with her make-up and umbrella.

    and another thing, this was just two grown ass females throwing words back n forth, so i don’t feel like Nick needed to come out to the public and say anything. now if a man was involved or there was a fight that is another story. him coming out and throwing shade just seem a lil girly. I’m married and i would have told my husband i can handle this chick there is no need to say or do anything.   

    • Heyboo

       …”like I said on twitter” IDK why that made me laugh…absolutely no shade intended. It was just funny.

      • honestlymonique

        I had just ask him about it n said this, then a second later he put this up I was like Damn it I’m saying it again cause I’m too lazy to think of anything else lol

    • Sammy

      Because you’re a bird. Birds have this mentality.

      • Awkwardfunny_girl

        Avian shade….loves it

  • SecretDivva

    Nick is so ratchet – and I’m talking about Nicki.. For starters, Mariah done ALREADY been there and done that. Clothes, cars, videos, marriages, fallouts on TRL, dem babies, Grammy’s, VMA’s… ALL THAT! Nick is just trying to stay relevant because she knows that nobody is really checking for her or this wackery she calls rap. THAT IS WHY SHE SIGNED UP FOR IDOL!! For people to SEE and REMEMBER Her! This whole “cat-fight” solidifies that fact for me.
    Folks that SERIOUSLY got they own money, like, let’s say The Creole Queen, Herself, will NEVER be a judge on these bullshit as shows. She doesn’t need more fans. She got ‘em ALL. And I believe the only reason Mariah is on there, is 1.) her manager Randy and 2.) she really DOES want to be a judge and help these sickly lil kids with insight into the industry. 
    Nick’s hoodrat antics WILL NOT go far, IMO. Mariah will have her sent back TO TRINIDAD!! And as for Nicholas Carey – do you thang, boo.. Stand by yo woman..

  • Autumn’s Child

    CHILE!!!!! Mariah has the best shade I’ve seen. And Nick read Nicki in place of his wife. Good job sir.

  • NLH

    “The pageantry of it all” … Mr. Carey sure has a way with words. I love the fact that MC is not ruining her manicured hands slinging dirt and such over this lacefront wearing, wanna-be-singer.

  • Kingphoenix

    No thanks Nick, Mariah’s shade is as legendary as her career. It speaks for it self….SAT DOWN!

    p.s. Where the hell is Patti Lahelle when you need her!

    • Kp_princess22

      I thought the same thing. Not to mention mariah was throwin shade while nick cannon was on nickelodeon struggling for life relevancy on all that.

    • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

      if you follow her twitter she’s been speaking on it…. this will be included in the new episode  I find it hilarious though when people try to rush her making videos, had she listened to most folks she would have missed out on all this shady gold.

  • kawaiiqt

    Let’s be real…do you think that Mariah is going to change her behavior at all based on this?? It would now be my personal mission to make Nicki mad everyday so she can continue to dig her grave….

  • WellThen

    From the looks of it everybody seems so unmoved by the situation..the spat was staged I tell you!

  • Joseline’s Adam’s Apple

    “Theatrics” and “the pageantry of it all”? Go in Nick, he’s been giving me butch queen realness since his *sips tea* tweet. 

  • NoseyJonesy

    LOL Kid Fury you are too much!! Nicki needs to attend a few “reading” courses and get with the program! Mariah is unfazed by her bullshit!!! **in my G2BR Aretha voice**

    • TeamMimi

      Nicki probably needs to learn how to LITERALLY read first.

  • Thefollowerofthesun

    Lawwd Stinky Minaj is a mess. first the Hot97 debacle & now this?. . .I cannot stand unprofessionalism! So what? Mimi said she’s inadequate?!  Bitch I think you’re inadequate & for you to throw your toys out the
    cot means someone touched a nerve. Learn to shade with class . .this chick is forgetting that this is a check. She ain’t doing nobody favours by being on AI. She’s getting far too comfortable, far too soon. Lets hope the barbz can help keep her career for the next 22 years.

  • Kay

    The man said “theatrics and the pageantry of it all”  Mariah taught him well.

  • Sharanda Norman

    dear NickiGaGaKim (by way of BrianBee), listen here, bitch. how dare you come for Mariah? number one, she is legendary. you should have washed your own mouth with soap after that. number two, you made yourself look like the bafoon you are with all that hollering and screaming and just ratch! number three, your hair was a hot ass mess. number four, you should just be lucky someone helped your dumb looking ass out by paying you to sit there and be a ki. im over you and your coonery. 

    On another note, Cannon did shade her in the nicest way possible. she is a fucking hoot. 

  • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

    Oooh I see Mimi has been giving Nick lessons in the basement on shade and wig snatching *hand claps* bravo Nicholas bravo!!

  • Stacksonstacks

     the theatrics and the pageantry 
    Oh the shade!

  • Dani

    Oh the drama never ends with this SHOW!! Look, bottom line is, both women don’t mesh and that’s what America is looking forward to seeing. As a fellow fan of Mariah since I was learning how to damn turn over in my crib, its not a big surprise that she would be saying some of the things she said to piss off Onika.I don’t feel that Nicki was wrong for telling Mimi about herself, but her OOC’ness….she better be glad someone didn’t start singin Up Out My Face.

  • ∞ηεℜđ∞

    Acess hollywood aint shit lmfao everyone got the footage but them

  • Alicia Collins

    The fact that they didn’t get Mariah’s shade on camera show the work of a professional. She set Onika up!!! And it’s just soooooooooo good. Act like y’all don’t remember those Divas Live specials. They were all singing onstage but they were cutting up!

  • Mimi

    Let this be an example for us all. Shade like a diva and you’ll come out on top. Shade like a bird and you’ll go down faster than Kim Kardashian after an NBA lockout.

  • Giselle

    Fury can you please make a Shade101 tutorial for ole girl.

    *Repost* The alleged transcript from the tiff:

    Nicki: “You think I’m playin’? You think this is all a joke? This is a joke? This is a joke? This is a joke? Say one more disrespectful thing to me! If you say one more disrespectful thing to me: Off with your head! Off with your head! Off with your head!Mariah: Excuse me. I am not being disrespectful.Nicki: Don’t call me a bitch! Don’t call me inadequate! You’re going to get set! Just fall back! You don’t know shit! You just sitting there while she running down her resume every five minutes. Every time you take a shot at me, I’m going to take it back and if you got a fucking problem you better handle it!Nicki: I told them I’m not fucking putting up with your fucking highness over there. Figure it the fuck out. Figure it out. Figure it out!Mariah: “Oh Why, why, why do I have a three year old sitting around me?”Nicki: “I’m not sitting here for 20 minutes to have you run down your resume everyday No! No! goodbye!”Mariah: “Listen I can’t see my kids because you decided to have a little crazy fit and run around the stage.”Nicki: “Oh Good. Go see them now. Go see them now. Go see them now. You’re boring as fuck!”

  • Ms. I Stay 1Hunna

    For the record..she is getting SUPER theatrical right now. Mimi is shading with silence

  • Kee

    Ok folks this is the REAL tea on this whole situation from beginning to end as I see it:
    First, Mariah was hired for not only name recognition but also talent. nicki was hired strictly for ratings because seriously, who in the age demographic of ppl who read this blog still watch american idol?? chances are yall aint watched since a person of color won and thats been some years. Second, them producers pretty much tricked mariah into signing on by waiting til the ink was dried  before letting the cat out of the bag about nicki. Its insulting that a actual singer with over 20 years of experience has to judge a SINGING competition with someone who (in all reality) has no real singing ability whatsoever outside of some damn autotune. I believe that because the checks have already been cashed and Fox probably got lonng money to sue is the only reason Mariah aint walked off yet. Had the got Nicki first there woulde been not talk of mariah carey touching this project Lastly, Nicki is letting them YMBELDF (whatever) folks and these so called “barbz” she got gas her up wayyy too much cuz she is burning the wrong bridges this year. First Hot 97 and now ths?? Not a good look. Ms. Onika if you know whats good for you will humble yourself down to your station and talent level because your fans are dropping like flies. Real talk I feel like if she keep it up she gone be on that same payment plan as lil bow wow.

  • Amor Shenese

    Ok now look…. *clears throat* Yall kill me because i bet you half of you MC dick suckers will or have bumped Miss Minaj’s songs… I hope none of that pop starships i just got anal probed by wayne’s martin ass…. but some of her real shit… on to the point…. Mariah is a BULLY… if you all havent noticed.. Shes been in the media several times for trynna push her IM QUEEN OF GOD JESUS AND YO MOMMA attitude all over the place. YES Saint Nick couldve been a bit more…. “Classy” about it, but i mean really shes a bitch from Queens…. You expect her to fold a napkin over ha lap and do pinkies up while sipping tea with her Highness ? NAW PIMP Mariah, she needs to take her butterfly dust sniffing ass, her and Mr Carey and take care of poor London and France.. or whatever their kids names are Maurice and Marylin…. >.> Monroe and Harlem Nights… Morocco chimicagangas  … i give up
