A feud has broken out between former and current AMERICAN IDOL judges STEVEN TYLER and NICKI MINAJ. Tyler slammed the new judges on the show saying, "These kids, they just got out of a car from the Midwest somewhere and they're in New York City, they're scared to death; you're not going to get the best [out of them]. If it was Bob Dylan, NICKI MINAJ would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips." It doesn't take much to set Nicki off and this did the trick as she accused Tyler of making a racist comment. Nicki fired back at Tyler by saying, "You assume that I wouldn't have liked Bob Dylan? Why? Black? Rapper? What? Go f--k yourself and worry about yourself babe."
