Nicki Minaj Gets MAD Shade From TLC's T-Boz: "Her Ass Can't Sing!"

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteCelebrity FeudsAmerican IdolNicki Minaj



It seems like TLC's T-Boz is none too happy about the modern musical environment, but girl is especially pissed off that Nicki Minaj is determining the talent of aspiring singers via her gig as an American Idol judge!

The 1990's girly-group member recently let loose in an interview and did NOT mince words when talking about the excess of non-talent in today's music industry… and goodness her accusations are SALACIOUS!

T-Boz blasted:

"Just because you’re on TV gyrating and boning and sucking penises, it’s not talent, honey. Maybe in the porn industry, but over here, we entertain. I don’t respect half [of] the people I’ve seen lately."

In response to a question specifically about Nicki Minaj & American Idol: "How the hell is she gon’ tell me what I should be doing when her a– can’t even sing? Why is she there? Now they’ve got rappers that don’t even sing judging. So, this is totally based off of popularity I guess. I mean, to each their own. Get your money, honey. All I’m saying is, I will never watch [your] shows again."

Oh sh*t oh sh*t!!

We're sure Nicki Minaj will NOT be pleased when she finds out about this!

It's such a shame when ladies in the music industry insist on tearing each other down rather than supporting — or simply IGNORING — each other. Why the need to bleed such hateful words, T-Boz?!

Ah well, maybe we'll get more of an insight into the T of TLC's mind when her reality show Totally T-Boz premieres on TLC… whenever that will be!

And Nicki will probably just add T-Boz to her long list of "Stupid Hoes".

    Mad shade? Grow the fuck up, you retarded homo. You always sound like a fucking teenage idiot. No wonder no one can fucking stand you.

    T-Boz wasn't being mean - she was only saying what everyone else is thinking. A lot of people work really hard on perfecting their singing skills and as you should know Perez, it is a CRAFT and it isn't easy. Let the singing experts be the judges - They're the ones who deserve it. Nikki sure isn't an expert on singing. I don't think a single person admires her "singing". She's completely out of place of the show. It would make more sense if this were a show about rappers instead of a wide array of acts.

    t boz is 100% right. she doesnt need to kiss peoples asses like u do perez. she says what she wants bcuz even if shes broke and not famous now, she has made a huge mark on the music scene and without her nicki wouldnt exist. not everyone buys into the artificiality of pop culture like u do perez. nicki is a PRODUCT. t-boz can actually sing and write songs

  4. 4

    T-Boz is 100% RIGHT!!!! Everyone is dissapointed she's on Idol so she's only speaking truth! TLC FOREVER!!!

  5. Me says – reply to this


    I have to agree with t-boz!! Lately nicki's music has not been great. I started out listening to her but found myself changing the station when she comes on. It's like she's trying to make new words that make no sense. Where has all the good artist gone?!?!

  6. 6

    She is right about Nicki's gyrating and non-singing, but her reasoning for Idol is flawed. A person does not have to be a good singer to judge singing. Most producers don't sing. But you do need experience, technical knowledge, and the ability to communicate - sadly, I don't think Nicki has any of that either. Clearly she is there for ratings and that's all.

  7. 7

    I agree with t-boz!!! Lately nicki's music has not been great. I have found myself changing the station when her music comes on. I have just lost interest. If somebody gave me a record deal I'm pretty sure I could come up with better lyrics then what she's spitting. Something that at least made sense!!!

    Simmon and others can't sing yet they are judges and bin doing it for some time now,you just need honesty and have a good ears for music,T-boz is calling out Nicki but T-boz her self isn't no strong vocalist either she did her thing in a group but a solo artist she an't sh-t,from they lost left eyes everything just fell apart,T-boz have a show coming out so the best way to get people talking is to go ofter nicki negatively,Nicki have alot of fans and alot of haters too…thats t-boz free pub right there and she new that thats why she did what she did.

  11. Nicc says – reply to this


    Today's rappers are all auto tuned.lil wayne,nicki minaj,all of them are zero talent and all mass produced.making bank for nothing more than being auto tuned!i agree with t boz completely.

  12. 12

    Nicki Minaj….CAN'T SING!

    She always around a bunch of almost naked men with what looks like prepping for a PORNO SHOOT GANG-BANG….

  13. Jayqboy1 says – reply to this


    HAHAHAHAHA! T-Boz is totally right! There is very little talent now days. As long as you can look good and jump around you're in…. TLC actually had TALENT and could sing AND rap! Go T-Boz!

  14. Tasha says – reply to this


    All T-Boz was doing was stating the truth !

  15. Danielle says – reply to this


    She's old news nicki is in get over it

  16. 16

    T-Boz was right though. She's stating a fact and trying to elevate the current (lack of) talent out there. Remember back when you need to have a great voice to be a singer WITHOUT the help of auto-tune???!!! AMERICA, set your standards HIGHER.

  17. 17

    She's right. Does anybody think Nicki Minaj actually has talent? Most "stars" today don't. It's disgusting.

  18. 18

    Nicki Minaj is creative, and talented. She's not the BEST singer, but she's better than a lot of ppl in this industry. She's an entertaining, and a performer, something people seem to overlook in people. Sometimes you want to be entertained and not sit there listening to someone sitting on a stool singing ballads and crap all the time. There was no reason for this woman to be rude like that, where has her career gone anyway? lol

  19. ( : says – reply to this


    T-Boz needs to STFU ! And mind her buissness . . why she gotta worry about what Nicki's doing ? Because she simply has NO life . . Or anything else to do with her time . She's just mad because Nicki's getting all of the attention and fame now and that's what girls do . Like come on , Nicki didn't even say anything about this bitch and here she is trying to start shit #NOlife ! Nicki CAN sing " honey " listen to her vocals hoe and tell me what you think ? Hating ass bitches don't never got no famn life . . If it ain't one thing it's ANOTHER !
    ( : Don't hit me back w/ no bullshit ass reply cause i don't care about what you have to say about my comment . . #RNS . . . TeamMinaj baby ( :

    It's funny how these blog put words in folks mouth when they (the folks or in this case T-Boz) hasn't even said anything remotely that the titled entails. Perez, if you were to pay attention to the FULL interview, you would know who and or what, T-Boz is talking about, instead causing drama. In addition, TT kept it completely 100%, and on point.
    BTW the full interview:

    She is so right about the talent today! The music industry is sooo oversaturated with so/so singers. Real singers can't make any money if they aren't outrageous or overly sexual.

  23. TJ says – reply to this


    Irrelevant. Ellen didn't sing, neither did Randy or Simon. Nicki is known for rapping, not singing. So T-Boz betta take her ass somewhere else cause she is obviously mad that Nicki is winning. She didn't even stand out in TLC, She needs to sit her arse down. —-> _/

  24. moreorless says – reply to this


    t-boz has some validity to her arguement, a singing competition should be judged by singers, she didn't have to say all that it makes her sound bitter, on the other hand nicki no doubt has talent and can recognize talent, she did go to a school for performing arts surrounded by the most talented people in new york city, and has years experience in the industry, don't let the nicki minaj character fool you.

    LMFAO!!! T-Boz is a mess, I don't even see her? Who is she again? #Barbznationunited

    She's right!
    Nicki Minaj is nothing but a cartoon character

  29. ONIT says – reply to this


    I'm confused by this. I never perceived Nicki Minaj as a rapper but a rapper/singer, BOTH. Probably 'cos Europe doesn't know her earlier stuff, just the the dance songs that contain rap and singing and she actually does both very talentedly. One may be in need to review all her material and judge on that.

    Sometimes i wonder why some people can have the strength to talk about other people like that. Niki minaj is a great rapper, which we all know for sure & her talent is so unbelievable because she sings what people want to listen to unlike what you think of her. Tboz i think you were too rude on her & maybe you are a hater.

  36. Renee says – reply to this


    Re: NoNameNeeded – Judging by the vocabulary used,I think you need to stop listening to and watching Nicki's music videos and go read a book.

  37. Badnfluenz says – reply to this


    Smh T-Boz your broke ass is pathetic. If you listened Nicki, watched her videos, her concerts, you'd know she ain't Lil Kim stupid!

    T-Boz is 100% correct, Nicki Minaj can't sing, looks like a colour blind street corner prostitute and act like a female thug all the time. I really would love to see her attempt to hit Mariah, the bodyguards would slam that fugly bitch to the ground before she knew what had happened! No talents like Nicki should not be at the Judges table of any talent show. Nor should someone without a couple of decades in the music industry under their belt.

    Chick fight? Somebody promoting a new album?

  44. TLC 4EVER says – reply to this


    I agree with T-Boz she's stating the truth the stupidhoe of nick minaj can't sing at all , she's just a lame ass character that portrays herself as a barbie slut!!!! her 15 minutes are almost over

  45. 45

    Team T boz….Nicki is a flash in the pan….gimmicked out bitch

  46. @v@ says – reply to this


    Well, I wouldn't pay dollars to see or buy Nicki's albums, but she fills rooms with people who do, so let the ticket sales speak because it's a free world. Throwing shade on someone else's work thing sounds wtf to me. There's room for everybody to try to make a living, and T-Boz can go fill rooms herself and sing the way she thinks it should be done.

  47. Brina says – reply to this


    First of all lilwayne do not use auto tune all the time looks like some people on here need to learn more about their rappers

  48. NIkko says – reply to this


    I agree with Ms. T-boz!! she is a legand bow down NIcki….

  49. Truthbtold says – reply to this


    Truth be told Nicki has no real talent-she cant sing she cant rap and her lyrics are WACK! I think she is rather funny as hell. I like her stuff because of her facial expressions and her weirdness but I could never take her seriously as an artist. T-Boz can sing she can rap and her performances were of real talent. I am not an idol fan either way because like said by someone else-if you cant sing how can you judge someone elses talent of singing. So for all I care American Idol can be cancelled !!!!!!! 2 tears in a bucket!

    Re: ( : – Actually you need to stfu cause you're irrelevant and have absolutely no clue as to what real music is. I mean look at you, you're a nicki minaj wannabe trying to be ghetto. Guess your family doesn't have much time for you huh? Sit the fuck down.

  52. you can't be serious says – reply to this


    You cant sing either t boz. ghetto trashy bitch. comb your hair, get some class and lose some weight. That should be your concern. nicki is way better than your tore up ass. Please!

  53. formerPerezreader says – reply to this


    Too bad T-Boz didn't say ANY of those things about Nicki Minaj. Perez or his writers shoulda done their homework and actually WATCHED the interview before printing more LIES. perez tries to act like he's changed but he's still a MEAN insecure small minded drama queen.

    The interviewer herself @THISISMAXONLINE has tweeted that Perez' article is not true.

  54. MO says – reply to this


    TBoz was being honest and I agree. Nikki is a joke and idol should be ashamed at allowing her gimmick to judge true artists. They are simply after ratings and that sucks for those who waited for so long to get in front of those judges only to get in front of someone who js entered the music industry and is not good enough to sit with the big dawgs like Mariah and Urban.

  55. Mo says – reply to this


    Re: Valentina – SAY WHAT!! Did yous ay Nicki can sing better than most? UMM most as in who? I can name ten singers right now Nicki is no batter than, Alicia Keys, Adele, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Keyshia Cole, Brandy, Taylor Swift (yep), Cassie, Ciara, Lana Del Rey (and I hate her), Janelle Monae, Monica, Beyonce, Solange, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, Vivian Green, Demi Lovato (yea, Demi) so who is she almost better than?? Please nikki is a gimmick, I'd have respect for her if she didn't use her body and costumes to mask her lack of talent. I heard her sing, yea she has an aiight voice, nothing to scream over. . .it's ok to be a nikki fan but don't take it too far. Yea she entertains but there is a difference between beings JUST and entertainer versus a true entertaining performer. Madonna performs entertainingly, Beyonce, Taylor, Rita, Rihanna. . .those are ppl who can do it all. Nikki relys soley on her sexuality to boost her popularity and this is the music industry, not a popularity contest. she has no business judging talent on Idol when she barely has any. . .but that's your opinion and I respect it.

    None of the other judges on American Idol can sing either, including that old azz bitch mariah

  61. 61

    None of the judges can sing, especially that old azz bitc# mariah, and tboz ballheaded ass is hatin on Nicki because she broke . get a life tboz wit yo uglass

  62. Bert says – reply to this


    Tboz is hating. Mariah has a beautiful voice. But singing is not the only thing that gets you on that type of platform. So collectively speaking each of the judges represents a factor/portion of what's needed to make it in he music business.

    Plus. I mean where's Tbos now? .

  63. L-Boz says – reply to this


    Right so you shade T-Boz and call her a "stupid Hoe" but are all smiles with her last week? Hypocrite.

    T boiz is right nicki minaj is not a role-model neither is she a good rapper……fake from head to toe SMH

  65. Moniya says – reply to this


    T-Boz need to stop being jealous because nobody want her on American Idol. She need to act her age and grow up. She just hating cause NICKI MINAJ is more in it and is always talking about her. WHY IS EVERYONE GETTING ON NICKI MINAJ NOW GEEESSSHHH..

  66. Moniya says – reply to this



  67. Moniya says – reply to this


    Re: IStayInLovew/M – ain't nobody dissapointed for Nicki Minaj to be up there that just mean that she is good enough to be up there and not T-Boz, ur just a hater stop hating.

  68. Dayna Darling says – reply to this


    Ha! This is all drama created. T-Boz is one of the very few celebs that talks openly wiithout PR telling her what to say. Trust, on everything, she is not "angry" about this or even studying it. This is no direct feud between her and Nicki Minaj… come on now. She's just saying what we are all thinking & saying. In order to create drama buzz, ppl have to misconstrue ish. That's just the way it goes…

    lul, finally someone who said the truth. nowt wrong with that.

  70. bladieblah says – reply to this


    Oh and Nicki can't throw the 'you're such a racist!!!!!' card on T boz like she did on Steven Tyler for saying he doesn't know how great of a judge she would make. Stupid silly woman.
