    Nicki Minaj needs to stop making bad music and go back to school. She's quite possible the dumbest of all the celebrities out there. Did this dingbat even graduate from high school?? Just wondering…

  2. 2

    Didn't see show, but looked at quotation you included and didn't see anything remotely racist. Is that simply a go-to accusation?

  3. 3

    Fuck YOU Nicki dumbo.

    He said cornfield. It was racist Perez. Why are you defending him? Lets not forget you're a minority too.

    It's funny she goes right to race. Considering Randy has been on the show for years and has done well and is a good judge of talent, and well Mariah Carey is mixed also. She is no talent trash and her comment proved his statement. There are plenty of rappers out there with talent, she is not one of them.

    I don't think this is a race issue at all. It's only typical for a person in the music business to like those of same genre. Steven could be a little harsh by what he said but he is not wrong. I heard that this seasons judges are not even in sync and Nicki and Mariah were always fighting and that's what Steven is trying to say about the "comradeship". Something tells me that all will be known when the season starts. I think I'm not going to like this season anyways if all it's going to be is animosity among the panel.

    Nicki Minaj wants to play the race card right away. Girl please, me and alot of other people feel you shouldn't even be juding on American Idol. You have no talent!! I won't be watching AI anymore.

    Another one of those black folks playing the racist card when most of the time they're the racist ones.

  9. 9

    She's calling the racist card? Says the singer who uses the N-word and wears a gold piece of fried chicken around her neck. She stereotypes herself.

  10. 10

    If he said cotton field… ya whatever, it was NOT racist. She is simply too stupid to formulate a proper response so she cries racism to divert the fact that she is stupid. Is it racist if I call her "ghetto"? I don't think so. If you saw where I grew up, she was probably next door.

  11. Good Grief says – reply to this


    SoDumb, I really hope you are joking. Bob Dylan is from Minnesota. Midwest is full of corn fields and country. That is the point Steven was trying to make. People who are so quick to throw the race card just can't make an any type of logical argument to begin with. Nicki will fade out. Steven Tyler has been around for many, many years…. he probably knows a thing or two about talent.

    Re: SoDumb – Cornfield is racist? Give your head a shake you stupid fuck.

  14. KC says – reply to this


    Just proves his point to how clueless she is when it comes to her knowledge or history of music. Aerosmith were one of the first hard rock groups to combine rock with hip hop ("Walk This Way" 1986). Learn your own history, girl, before you come swinging at someone.

  15. 15

    I think he was using cornfield as a reference to the midwest. I did not realize that cornfield was somehow racist.

  16. PM2901 says – reply to this


    Nicki Minaj has a very limited vocabulary. She lashes out with vulgarity (a la dumb-ass Chris Brown) because she's insecure, uneducated, and untalented and knows that her 15 minutes are about up. Her act is short-term schtick; nothing more. I guarantee you her ignorant ass didn't invest her money wisely, which means she'll be back living in the Projects and on welfare in 5 years.

  17. 17

    Fuck her. He has more talent in his dick than she does in her whole body….!!!

  18. Wendy Br says – reply to this


    He said she would have sent Dylon to the corn field not that she needed to go. Big difference. I am so damn tired of people crying racist based on every damn thing.

    It isn't about race it is about NM being a no talent whack job freak.

  19. 19

    is it racist to call Nicki Minaj the single stupidest human on earth???

  20. 20

    Re: RdRydngHd – Yup. Racism is the standard go to card for black people when while people call them out for something.

  21. 21

    Re: SoDumb – When he said "cornfield" he was referring to Bob Dylan you moron.

  22. 22

    Thank you Nicki Minaj for proving one more time how vulgar, talentless and ignorant you are. I can see his statement maybe hard to digest, but for you to jump straight to a verbal brawl and showing the so easy racist card when there is no room for that, makes Steven Tyler so spot on his observation. You should put more effort in focusing on your art craft and your judge duties than picking fights with almost every one around you. Including your blame game to Walmart and some other store for your pathetic record sales… Just saying

  23. PM2901 says – reply to this


    Am I racist for saying that Nicki Minaj is a Black Lady Gaga wannabe? By the way, I'm Black. The difference between Nicki and Lady Gaga is TALENT! Nicki can make as many animated faces as she likes and wear as many clown outfits as she can find, but she'll never withstand the test of time. Tick tock. . .

  24. PM2901 says – reply to this


    #20 - do you know how racist you are being referring to Black people as "them"? Just because Nicki is a fucking idiot doesn't mean that ALL Black people use the race card "when people call them out for something." Damn, your post says EVERYTHING about who you are, how you think, and how you were raised.

  25. 25

    That FAT-ASS NAPPY-HEADED TALENTLESS HO needs to go away….

  26. Not watching says – reply to this


    Fox made a major mistake by hiring her. What a mess. What a dumbo. I have zero interest in ever watching American Idol. Nicki Minaj is Fox's karma for being a right-wing lying network. Ha Ha.

    Re: SoDumb – You're an idiot. Cornfields in the midwest since he was talking about kids from idol being country, midwest kids. Hence she would send them back to the cornfields.

  30. emeraldfire says – reply to this


    its pretty much the thing now….you must love every black person or you will be racist…..sometimes, people are just assholes and bitches….really has nothing to do with color AT ALL….but people are constantly screaming racist and you basically can't say anything at all negative about someone who isn't white or you will be racist…..sometimes, it has nothing to do with anything but character……i know a few black people…..three are my closest friends……one is a complete asshole and i wouldnt go near him with a 10 foot pole…..not cause he's black….but because he's an ASSHOLE!!!

  31. Emma says – reply to this


    Silly twat, Nicki Minaj….Stop using your position as a rapper and your ethnicity to put people in the wrong - it's not that you're black/coloured/African-American/whatever you prefer to be called. It is a judge of character, not of genre or skin colour. If 15 year olds know this, so should she.

  32. emeraldfire says – reply to this


    Re: Not watching – the fox network has nothing whatsoever to do with Fox News, dumbass

  33. Brand says – reply to this


    Steven Tyler's comment is completely racist. White privileged Perez is too ignorant and afraid of racism to notice; "Nicki would have him sent to the cornfield" is a direct rude comment referencing slavery and, Nicki is absolutely right! He knows nothing about her except that she's a rapper and accusing her of only recognizing rap. He's a rude misogynist racist, and, frankly, so is Perez for downplaying the scenario.

  36. RainbowBrite says – reply to this


    I don't see how it's racist. I'm sorry, but Nicki has built a career on trying to draw as much attention to herself as possible, not her talent. When you have talent, you can stand on a stage with one light shining on you and people will stay to hear you sing/speak. You don't need crazy outfits, makeup, hairstyles. I cannot take her "craft" seriously when she wears a Frankenstein beehive or a chicken wing necklace. That is not "expressing" yourself, when you didn't dress that way from an early age. It's attention seeking. She isn't the only one, but I'm just saying, her actions don't make her seem like she has a lot of depth, musically or anything else. Not to mention instead of a classy retort she resorted in calling him racist, which to me is when you've got nothing else to comment on. It's like saying "Oh yeah, well..your mom."

  37. Gigi says – reply to this


    I am sooooo tire of Icky Garbage.. When will she go away ?

  38. Rita says – reply to this


    Nicki says every bit of criticism/diss aimed at her is 'racist'. When it was reported that Mariah had hired extra security because of Nicki planning to shoot her, suddenly it became a racist issue - even though Mariah herself is part black, intwined with the Hip Hop scene and had a rough child hood. Honestly, I'm glad Minaj is on Idol. Hopefully it will expose her for the dumb moron she is and wake people up!

  39. 39

    Re: SoDumb – because he's from the midwest and cornfields are where many end up working Duh. How can a black woman sending a white guy to cornfields be racist against blacks? Makes no damn sense. Minaj is bitter and paranoid about everybody being racist. It cant just be that she's a talentless fake looking ghetto skank with a foul attitude that people have a problem with. No, its just coz she's black in her dumb mind. Talentless inarticulate piece of ugly shit.

  40. drdre says – reply to this


    she likes to throw that term around, any criticism is racist. She needs a bigger vocabulary or needs to look the word up.Tired ass

  41. 41

    Steven, the show isn't about the contestants, it's about the ass-hat judges. Nicki, you have no talent. Most breathing people can spot talent. But again, you have none. I think that was the core of what Steven was trying to say.

  42. 42

    But good job on creating a new reason to call someone racist. You should work for Fox News so you can help them make shit up as they go along.

  43. wtf?!? says – reply to this


    bob dy;an is from the 'cornfield" dumbasess.. hes from rual Minnesota and his talent wasnt obvious to people when he came out.. hes is an example of someone who would have been cut based on the way the new cast … fuck it.. its not even worth explaining or typing anything more…

  44. 44

    Those of you saying the cornfield line makes him racists are fucking stupid. It wasn't a racial reference it was a midwestern reference and he was saying she would send Bob Dylan back to the cornfield. I live in the midwest and there are a lot of cornfields here. It had nothing to do with race, and everything to do with the area someone came from.

    Now, if he would have said She needed to give up her career and go work in a cotton field THAT would have been racists. That isn't what he said though.

    When you play the race card constantly nobody takes you seriously. Don't pull out that card unless shit is legit.

  45. 45

    Re: Brand

    No I'm sorry but any educated person would know that this is not true. The point had been proven above many times. Bob dylan was from the midwest, thus the cornfield reference. Also, Aerosmiths "Walk This Way" colab… Not to mention if everyone here wants to seriously debate this "racist" comment and pick apart history, then lets do so. Who originally sold the first African Americans into slavery from Africa to people of the Americas? African Americans. Caucasians were slaves many times during history but they (notice I used the word "they" lets see if any causcasian people get mad at me!) don't scream for constant restitution for years. Let's be realists here, she shouted race card for the pure fact that she was "dissed" by a previous judge that lost his job, all she knows how to do is be defensive. End of story. Pathetic and embarassing

    Re: Brand – Wow…get your facts straight. Perez is not White…he's Cuban-American. If you're wrong about that, just imagine how many other things you're wrong about. Ignorance is so sad…educate yourself.

  48. 48

    I hate when you losers comment here saying she's not talented, just because you don't like her or her music fine doesn't mean shes not talent. Noone cares about your standards.

  49. jese says – reply to this


    I don't think he was being racist he was just pointing out that nicki minaj has no talent and now has been put in a position to judge it and it isnt right… now with that being said whoever says there goes the another black playing the race card. blacks always play the race card when they get called out for something. or white ppl were slaves throughout history but you don't see us constantly screaming for restitution you might need to evaluate yourself that is a negative statement aimed at an entire race of ppl. not individuals but the race as a whole. so yes boo generalizing an entire race as on big group and saying "they" and following it by something negative towards that group comes off as racist. I am black and don't think I'm entitled to anything if i didn't work for it. and i don't play the race card as an argument because someone has a negative opinion of me as a person and there are plenty of other "blacks" that feel the exact same way that i do. there are lazy ppl in every race who think they are entitled. there are ppl in every race that are too ignorant to make a logical or sound argument so they spout off bullshit. you both are seeming like you fall into that group of ignorant ppl.

    Lol @ "it makes us sad when celebs can't play nice". When Celebs Can't Play Nice should be the real name of this site.

    Re: BeyondAmazing. – The problem is that Nicki Minaj relies HEAVILY on gimmick instead of talent. Her style alone SCREAMS Gimmick, then add in other factors like autotune, the constant drama she surrounds and creates for herself. It makes her look like a joke, and when someone relies so heavily on gimmicks for fame and success people will naturally come to the conclusion that they are not talented. A truly talented artists should let their talent be the thing that defines them. not crazy wigs and controversy.

    wow the comments people will make behind thier computer screen… some of you guys are making racist comments! im a little offended and im a white girl.

  53. 53

    Re: RdRydngHd – , yes it is the go-to accusation. Susan Rice has been a dismal US Ambassador to the UN. When John McCain called her out for it, democrats cried racism. Why? Because they had no legitimate argument to support her so the had to resort to the well-worn, overplaid race card. Sad really.

  54. 54

    Is this coming from the same woman who wears blond hair, colored contacts, and spends money to make her skin look as white as possible? Especially with lyrics like "These little nappy headed hoes need a perminator" If anybody doesn't like black people I would say its Nicki Minaj.

  55. Kay says – reply to this


    She sounds like an absolute diva- stirring shit all the time…

    Steven Tyler should have kept his mouth shut, but what he said was hardly racist (and TBH can someone explain to me what Nicki Minaj's talent is?) I think there needs to be some form of credibility- auto-tune kinds ruins that.

    She is waaaaaaay over dramatic. She is making it hard to like her. Leave the diva attitude until you can actually prove you have talent beyond the over-produced and released albums. Sheesh.

  56. rocknrollluver says – reply to this


    by the cornfield comment, steven meant that if she were judging bob dylan (folk-singer, underbelly of society, rare), she would have scolded him and sent him back to the cornfield, meaning back to the midwest. Lots of these kids are from the midwest, but they are what minaj is not, talented possibly, and can actually sing. Tyler would've taken a kid like that and helped him realize their full potential. How trivializing and immature of minaj to bring it to an immediate racist situation.

  57. CeeUNexTuesday says – reply to this


    Re: Brand – um he would have to have said cotton field I do believe, for the racist comment to make sense. Also Perez is Latino, so he is not white and privileged. Your comment seems pretty ignorant to me.

    I'm not saying Steven Tyler should have been saying anything. He needs to shut up and be professional and insulting his fellow co-workers is not very professional. He was not however, insulting her race, he was jabbing at her talent (and if you have seen her perform live, I can kind of understand).

  58. Anon says – reply to this


    I don't see anything racist about the comment. I wish people would stop paying so much attention to stuff that just isn't there. There is no other way we can come together until we leave this stuff where it belongs - the past

    "Send him to the cornfield" is not a racist remark. It's a very common reference to an episode of the Twilight Zone called "It's a Good Life."

  75. Lewis C says – reply to this


    Oh be quiet Nicky Minaj you moron. Have you not wodered that maybe the reason that Steven said you were incapable of spotting talent is because you don't possess any yourself. You cant just go calling people racist for having an opinion. Show some respect to Steven. You'll be lucky if you achieve a millionth of what he has achieved in his life. How about this, keep your accusations to yourself, dress normally instead of dressing like a whore and go and get f***** yourself? Capiche?

  76. Nicole says – reply to this


    It seems like she didn't understand that the Midwest is the Corn Belt. But still, why would cornfield=African American….I have no idea. But it sure makes her seem less smart. He was saying she doesn't seem nurturing, which to be fair, it's too soon to say that; we haven't even seen her work yet. Maybe he has somehow, who knows? But to call someone racist for saying what he said is just as unwarranted as his criticism. Maybe that's what she was going for.

  80. 80

    1st off lets be clear. Bob Dylan would never have done a bullshit show like American Idol. & Second: Steven Tyler is a nearly washed up outta touch old rag of a rocker who did too many drug & his gf hits him. He probably can't name a Nicki Minaj tune.
    She is so right & is a great judge of fresh talent.
    Nicki gurl in the words of Jonelle Monae "You dance up on them haters"
    Tyler is just creepie these days. Suck it old geezer no one cares about your old rocker shiz any more. You done.

  81. 81

    Re: Natasha – That cornfield comment was totally racist you are right.
    Maybe Tyler is just jealous because Nicki didn't want his old shrivelled up 1970's funkidified old cheesy dick. Prolly just mad at her.

  82. 82

    Anyone remember the Twilight Zone episode where the little weird boy wishes people into the "Cornfield" & then they die? It is a classic & old OLD. Prolly what Tyler meant so maybe not meant as a racial slur possibly. & Folks even if Nicki calls herself the N word that's her & she can do that but an old white rocker cannot.
    I don't think Nicki is talentless & i do think they need fresh, young judges on the show, Not 42 year old J Lo or 150 year old Tyler.

    Re: SoDumb – Black people worked in cotton fields… I'm black, I remember lol. There was nothing racist about what he said and I'd have to agree.

    some of you guys are taking a handful of people and letting them represent all black people and putting your negative comments off on the entire race you can't do that! that is racist!

Nicki minaj does not represent the entire black population she is one person!

    Re: SoDumb – Now the word "cornfield" is racist? I believe he was referring to the fact that Bob Dylan is from the mid-west and she would have sent him home to the cornfield if he came through American Idol. Wow, you're as dumb as Nikki apparently.

    Re: Lady Amalthea – Nicki doesn't rely on anything except her Talent. I swear 99% of her Haters have not heard one damn song by Nicki Minaj. They are too busy being judgmental of what you see. She can actually sing, and her rap skills are being praised by the Rap Heavyweights like Jay-Z, NaS, Rick Ross, etc. Everybody respects Nicki and the fact that she has a tremendous amount of skill when it comes to her music. What you bitches mad about?! The fact she ended Lil Kim's "come back" career?! Lil Kim did that all by her lonely. Lil Kim needs BIG to write her raps to stay relevant EVERYBODY knows Biggie wrote Lil Kims biggest hits and Kim can't write to save her life. Nicki has staying power. She adapts to her surroundings and excels like a rocket. She takes off and she is the ONLY Female Rapper to ever be successful just by guest starring on EVERYBODY'S SONG!

    Re: dumchick – Mariah that bitch can't sing no more. Her "Always be my baby, Dream Lover, etc" days are DONE! Sit back and watch Nicki get all the love whilst Mariah comes off as a tired old HAS BEEN. American Idol will the Demise of Mariah. Can't wait for all haters to eat your own shit.

  98. 98

    I believe he said cornfield referring to the talent coming from the midwest. I think he was also referring to the fact that she's a young "made" by hollywood popstar who may not be seasoned enough to scout out talent. She's obviously on the show because her being on it would up the percentage of people watching. This is not a race issue.
