Isn't it always so funny how reading what someone says and then HEARING it can really showcase what the intent behind the words really was?!
Let us give you a beautiful example of what we mean!
Mariah Carey sat down with Barbara Walters for an interview on Nightline last night, during which she once again addressed her much-publicized, possibly-staged feud with fellow American Idol judge Nicki Minaj!
We ALL know the story by now, so we're not going to re-hash the details, but as we noted earlier, the diva explained her decision to take the gun threats the rapper allegedly made against seriously enough to hire extra security, because "anytime anybody's reeling threats at somebody, you know, it's not appropriate. I'm a professional. I'm not used to that type of environment."
Reads completely logical, right?!
To TRULY appreciate just how much venom is tinged throughout all of Mimi's faux-saccharine word choices, one must watch an actual clip of the interview, which you can do (above)!
And if that's not DIVAliciously bitchy enough for you, just wait until she responds to the new song Her Minajesty recently recorded, which allegedly was written TO SLAM her co-judge!
OUCH! We need some ice, and that burn wasn't even at us!
That's what makes her THE QUEEN!
Nicki has to create an entire diss track to devastate her enemies, but all Mariah needs is some side-eye, an especially icy tone of voice, and some careful use of alliteration to have the same effect!
What do U think? Team Mimi or Team Minajesty?!
