Nick Cannon Blames FOX For Mariah Carey & Nicki Minaj Idol Feud! Watch Video HERE!

| Filed under: Celebrity FeudsMariah CareyAmerican IdolNick CannonNicki Minaj

While American Idol continues to play out the Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj feud, Mariah’s husband Nick Cannon is not having it.

The America’s Got Talent host took to The Talk yesterday and said that the whole situation is “kind of unfortunate.”

He continued:

"When you see someone like my wife, who tries to remain classy and tries to take the high road, it feels like everybody else around it — including the network and the producers — feed into this whole sound bite drama. It feels like it lacks substance."

Ch-ch-check out the interview (above) for all the details!

Nick added:

"You can't even blame Nicki Minaj or her team. I feel like they fed into that. They wanted to see the drama… I think America in general is tired of seeing the mean judges and people be mean to people. They're over it … In the book of Mariah Carey, 'American Idol' will be a footnote."

As for his wife’s potential return to the show, he stated:

"I wish that experience could be what the show is really supposed to be about. Because she really loves these contestants [and] has a connection with her fellow singers… It's a time when she has so many amazing things going on in her life, if there's something unstable — I think if they get it stable she might re-look at it, but no one wants to be a part of something unstable."

Hmm, Mariah’s return doesn’t sound promising. Especially after Nick mentioned that his wife saw the judges’ lack of chemistry coming:

"She tried to tell the network, 'I don't think this is going to work. I'm afraid. I don't need this. I'm doing this for the brand of American Idol… and I love this show, but you're kind of taking it in the wrong direction because this is going to turn into one of those reality shows. I didn't sign up to be on 'Love and Hip-Hop.'”

Idol producers better have something up their sleeve for next season because Mariah had it right. None of this is working!

    I'm sure he's right about the producers playing up the discord between Mariah and the Clown for ratings. The talent surely isn't the draw this season. But his comment: "It feels like it lacks substance." doesn't make sense in the context of his other statements. Instead of making a strong defense for his wife, he comes off sounding like he doesn't know what words mean. And I doubt his wife has ever "taken the high road". By all accounts, her reputation as a spoiled diva is well-earned.

    Sure TV producers start fake fights to pull in more viewers. Just like Stars fake date to pull in more of an audience for their movies or concerts. Everything in Hollywood is fake.

    Mariah needs to get over hereslf and both divas need to go away and never allowed in any judging capacity anywhere. MAriah used her hands with swioes ti her hair as she grandstands the cameras on me .. Look at Me.. She need to realize she is not all that and Good ridance to both.. Bring back Tyler and Lopez and let Jimmy get on with his job too..Season 10 was the best ever and that is because of the judges who spotted talent and all the various types of singers..Thats what made american idols and not these attention seeking divas.

    I think idol was a bad choice for both Nicki and Mariah…they both have come across as foolish. I suppose the wage softens the blow. I was more mad when Mariah agreed to do the show, no need to take #talenshow route…I mean come on your friggin Mariah Carey!!!
