Steven Tyler Apologizes To Nicki Minaj After She Calls Him Racist!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooMusic MinuteCelebrity FeudsAmerican IdolNicki Minaj


Ooo the engine burns hot under Nicki Minaj's colorful, candy-coated hood!!

And girl recently unleashed her fire on former American Idol judge Steven Tyler when she called him a racist after Steve commented on Nicki's OWN AI judging skillz!

BUT, Steven wants Nicki to know that he is SO not racist, and that he doesn't know why Nicki would automatically assume such a thing!

The Aerosmith frontman expressed:

"I apologize if it was taken wrong, Nicki, but I am the farthest from [being a racist]. I am the last thing on this planet as far as being a racist. I don't know where she got that out of me saying I'm not sure how she would've judged Bob Dylan. Maybe I spoke out of turn, but a racist I'm not, Nicki."

Fair enough!

And yes, Steven may have totally pre-judged Nicki's assesment skillz, but why did the Freedom rapper SO quickly jump to the conclusion that Steven was racist?!

That is SUCH a nasty thing to accuse someone of, and the fact that SHE immediately assumed such a thing is rather judgmental in its own right!

Ah well, hopefully after Steven's apology all is right between the two music makers!

    It is very chivalrous of Steven to apologize for Nicki's stupidity.

  2. 2

    It kind of irritates me that he apologized. He didn't have to at all, Nicki was just being dumb and calling for attention. I agree 100% with what you said Perez, it is so nasty for her to automatically assume he's a racist when he in no way implied it. Like rosebud99 said, however, it was chivalrous of him to apologize either way.

  3. 3

    I'm so sick of everyone shouting "RACIST!". What he said had NOTHING to do with race, you really have to use your imagination to make it so. I think it was quite racist of her, to assume Steven is a racist, based on that he is white, and had criticism of her. NEWSFLASH- just because a white person has criticism of a non-white person, doesn't scream racism…Nicki, hun, go buy a dictionary and look up "racism". Because this was not it.

    Really, you don't see how she went straight to racism????? She's black, that's is what she and almost all of black americans do. If someone does not agree with them or calls them out and they have no answer, they just scream racism. What a fucking joke. Besdies that, it's clear as hell she is too stupid to understand that the corn field is never a revference to black people, it's the "cotton field" that is the racist saying. Besides, again, too dumb to understand that Bob Dylan is from the upper midwest, where there is nothign but corn fields. I know, i live here. That is what steven was saying. Stupid fucking bitch.

    Oh please, he said that she'd send bob dylan to the cornfeilds, might as well have said cotton feilds. Im with Nicki on this one.

  6. 6

    It is because SHE is racist.

  7. 7

    Another stupid nig playing the race card, and another stupid cracker knuckling under. If the dumb-ass nigs have it so bad here, let them go back to mother Africa. I know I won't miss them; I'll be too busy laughing like hell because they won't have entitlement programs there handing them everything their worthless black asses are too fucking lazy to work for. You hear me darkies? GTFO!

    Nicki is a new-comer in the music scene. She needs to learn RESPECT. Steven has been in this game for a very, very, long time, and I am certain she will never come close to his amount of musical achievements. She personifies the decline of society, IMO. She's vulgar, doesn't think before she speaks, is plain ignorant, and her massive ego is unfounded. She doesn't even have a good singing voice, she can talk fast with some grunts in there.

  9. 9

    Re: rosebud99 – Amen.

  10. 10

    Re: Alex – You're stupid.

  11. 11

    Re: Alex – Except that is a COMMON SAYING!! Sending a white person into a cornfield isn't racist. Nicki just isn't educated and doesn't understand common sayings. Perhaps she should read more. If Steve said that Nicki should be picking cotton - racist. But, send him into the cornfields is not.

  12. 12

    Re: Pansy Hunter – Nicki, THIS is a racist comment, not what Steven said; Take note.

  13. Mr Pete says – reply to this


    Nicki, is a black girl, and it's a big problem for her
    She wants to be white so bad, she bleaches her skin, paints herself pink, dons long silky straight hair all to pass her self off as white girl
    What is that message she sends to young black children, that they should be ashamed to be who they are
    Michalel Jackson was the same way

  14. 14

    Fuck that. She needs to start respecting actual musicians and singers. I would have never apologized. Her and Chris Brown need to just go away. After last weeks album sales it is obvious nobody cares about Nicki Minaj anymore.

  15. Leota says – reply to this


    hmmm…sending his to the "cornfields"…isn't that Children of the Corn?? Sending him to the evil fields?? Besides, my parents worked in the cotton fields when they were younger and guess what…they were Caucasian…

  16. Davis512 says – reply to this


    I agree, I am so tired of hearing someone scream "racist" because a white person disagrees with them or has a different opinion. If you are the person to jump to that conclusion because the person is white, doesn't that make YOU the racist? Years ago, I was a patrolman working the night shift when a car pasted me going well over the speed limit. This car had dark tinted windows and I had no clue who was driving. When I stopped them and approached the vehicle, I heard a female voice state “you only stopped me because I am black”. She made that statement before I even saw her. SHE was the racist, not ME.

    NM is the racist. Shows how she judges people by their race. Only thing that makes any sense to why she would say crap like that.

  18. Rosie Oh says – reply to this


    I have as little contact as possible with blacks
    It my way of not being a racist

  19. RainbowBrite says – reply to this


    It was nice of him to apologize but I don't think he should have to. Who gives a fuck what Nicki Minajs thinks? I don't know if what she does is art, I've never really had anything against her, but I feel like her outfits and style are more attention whoring than artistic. I guess thats what show business is now though. You don't really need superb talent or to hone your craft, just make the biggest display you can of yourself.

    Re: Alex – Apparently, you don't understand what the connotation behind "to the cornfields" are. It means she would've seen Bob Dylan as nothing more than white trash/redneck who belongs back at the farm. You liberals are fucking stupid. You shouldn't need to have someone explain such easily understood cultural terms to you.

    Also, Alex, you're the racist since you're the one who brought up the 'cotton fields'.

  21. 21

    NM is a stupid hoe who needs to tear her RACIST ass back to Trinidad where they probably believe she has some fucking talent. Hey bitch, call us back when you've been relevant for 40~ish years like Aerosmith/ST has been. Til then, go fuck YOURSELF.

  22. Brand says – reply to this


    HIS COMMENT WAS RACIST! It's very very upsetting that Perez is being a light-skinned privileged asshole by not acknowledging his blatant racism.

  23. Diana says – reply to this


    Amen to that @pansy hunter

  24. 24

    It s sad that he even needed to apologize and try to explain himself. Those of us who are actually SMART understood that nothing about his comment was racist in any way.

  25. 25

    This is so far from racist. It's just her back up for being put in her place. I support equality of every kind and go out of my way to stick up for everyone, but I can't stand it when people pull out the race/sex/orientation card for anything that doesn't go there way. There are some very ignorant people in this world but there are also alot that aren't, and they shouldn't have to tip toe around everything that they say out of fear of it being twisted and used against them. The world today is so overly PC, people just want scandal at every corner.

  26. kaitlynn0788 says – reply to this


    obviously he wasn't being racist …he thought (after Nikki's 11 MJ surgery) that she was white. so in his defense white people bash each other all the time.

  27. 27

    I'm so over black people always pulling the "racist" card. SHUT THE FUCK UP! Always bitching that people are "racist" because your "black" um no…that shit is annoying as fuck.

  28. 28

    He didn't need to apologize; the comment wasn't racist.

  29. youku says – reply to this


    nicki is so full of herself! why does she always insert the racist card on every comment about her? there is nothing in steven's statement that shout racist, yes he is prejudice on nicki's judgement skills and he very well apologized for it but he's right, he's far from being a racist.

  30. 30

    she was just pulling the race card, she's too fuckin' stupid to argue intelligently. talentless ghetto clown. die ho die !!!

  31. 31

    Re: booboo1492 – that would be great advice if she knew how to read.

  32. 32

    Re: RainbowBrite – i.e. kim kardashian.. neither has any talent what so ever but kim is attractive. nicki has a face like a foot.

  33. 33

    Re: Brand – are you also black?

  34. facinated says – reply to this


    Apparently some people can't take criticism. I don't know the context of Mr.Tylers critique, however, in the best interest of goodwill and your fans; please put brain in gear before speaking. And I hope this message will not be misunderstood. And I sincerely apologize if this message is taken out of context. GOD SPEED to all!

  35. teeter totter says – reply to this


    He had nothing to apologize for and I would not have.
    Thank goodness the PC fad has run its course along with the race card except in stupid places like WDC. It is pretty much out of style from what I hear.

  36. 36

    Wow she's dumber than I thought she was. What an idiot

  37. 37

    Re: salient – Exactly. If anyone should be offended it should be Bob, NOT Nicki. It's sad the younger generation follows her and will believe Steve was being racist. And I doubt even Bob would get offended by this statement, he'd probably laugh.

  38. 38

    Your now racist if you suck at your job and you get called out for being a worthless piece of shit and they are black! Hey! Obuma gives you better job for this kind of bullshit! Rice who lied for this President and now its racist!! Amazing!!
    I had African Americans work for me and they were ALL the laziest fucking shit talkers I have EVER worked with!!

  39. Siera says – reply to this


    Honestly I'm black and i like both Steven and Nicki. That being said Steven is NOT a racist. Yes he did prejudge her skills but her calling him a racist….. that's harsh and a cruel thing to accuse him of. Hopefully Nicki will accept his apology and both move on.

  40. 40

    I LOOOOOVE how all you bleat like stuck pigs about the AUDACITY of NM calling Aerosmith "racist" (which I agree is unfounded), but you're strangely silent when racist comments are made by the resident coward trolls like "yenkme" and "pansy", et al. YOu can call NM out for false racism, but not racist trolls for REAL RACISM? I'm calling all of you out, you stupid hypocrites, and furthermore I would LOVE for yenkme and panties to talk shizz to a black man's face like you do on these boards. Oh no? Yeah, didn't think so…LOL

  41. idgaf wat u think says – reply to this


    if she felt that he was racist she can feel that because to her it may have been and apparently it must have been if he felt the need to appologize but either way it goes its between them why some of you on here siding and making racist comments.

  42. ShutTheFuckUP says – reply to this


    Re: Yenkme – you didn't even have to say all that you are a dick. Oh for the record I am NOT black you are just ignorant.

  43. @v@ says – reply to this


    He is soooo not a racist. She owes HIM the apology.

  44. LoveRetro says – reply to this


    I don't like her either because she is a Republican . However, these people that claim she/black people are over using the word " racist ", followed by the "N " word to describe black people, probably means you are racist ? Unless you are African American, you can not possibly know what they go through . As a white guy, I hear the " N " word every day from other white people and it makes me sick to my stomach to the point I want to kick the shit out of these ignorant a-holes that say this online, hiding from the worlds scorn . If you believe what you say,, show your face in the open .

  45. LoveRetro says – reply to this


    Now I know why Perez got punched in his eye . He allows all this racist shit on his page . Fucking punk .

  46. Tiffany says – reply to this


    The beef with Mariah is probably fake but the hilarious new game Roman's Rage is 100% real!

  47. Claude Kardoox says – reply to this


    Re: Mr Pete – —Yes all the way, Agree 100%…….Also when cornered and is exposed plays the race card immediately, predictable behaviour she has nothing to bring at the table….Phony that will die out very quick
