Nicki Minaj is reportedly fuming at producers of American Idol.
On the heels of Tuesday’s much-publicized fight between Minaj and Mariah Carey – in which the former cursed off the latter following their disagreement over a Season 12 hopeful – insiders tell TMZ that the “Spaceship” singer believes show forces are conspiring against her.
Minaj is convinced those behind the scenes are purposely trying to rile her up because they believe an angry Nicki equals an entertaining, highly-rated Nicki.

Yvette Wilson passed away from cancer a few days ago, and while the actress’ death has left Nicki Minaj in tears, it’s also left her irate. At the American health care system.
In a series of Tweets posted not long after Wilson died, Minaj went off on current policy and even addressed President Barack Obama at one point.
“What’s sad is that when Yvette was bringing home the bacon, the gov’t was probably taking millions.On her deathbed though, #Nowheretobefound,” Nicki wrote. “That should be a God given right! Even with Obama Care, too much involved. Just give FREE health care to all.More >
Nicki Minaj has some NSFW words for 97.1 FM.
The rapper appeared opposite Funk Master Flex on that New York radio station this morning and addressed the beef she has with another station DJ, Peter Rosenberg, that led to her canceling her appearance at the Hot 97 Summer Jam on Sunday.
That last-minute decision stemmed from Rosenberg’s remarks to open the concert two days ago, when he introduced the first act by saying: “I know there are some chicks in here waiting to sing along with Starships later. I’m not talking to y’all now. F–k that bulls–t.”

Nicki Minaj was ranked number-15 on Forbes‘ Hip-Hop Cash Kings chart for 2011, pulling in $6.5 million and establishing herself as one of rap’s top earners.
But we have a feeling that figure will go up considerably in 2012.
The artist has signed on to become the new Pepsi spokesperson for an upcoming beverage that company will roll out in the near future, according to Derek Jackson, the man who brokered the deal.

Nicki Minaj goes seriously old school on the latest cover of W. We’re talking old, old, old school, people.
Thanks to artist Francesco Vezzoli, the artist is transformer into a 18th-century woman, donning elaborate pieces by Dior Haute Couture, Vera Wang, and Western Costume Company. See for yourself:
Said Vezzoli of working with Minaj, who surprised her biggest fan on Ellen this week in this adorable video:

Sophia Grace Brownlee, a little girl far too young to be singing Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass,” has done so online. And, inappropriateness aside, she nails the thing.
Right down to Minaj’s accent, the youngster shows off serious talent and looks pretty darn adorable in a princess outfit, backed up with her even littler sister.
While belting out lyrics like “Somebody please tell them who the eff I is.” Nice.More >
Kelly Rowland must have been thinking: ‘what Nicki can do I can do better,’ as just days after the Pink Friday star suffered a nip slip on GMA’s Summer Concert Series, the former Destiny’s Child singer followed suit and (accidentally) let both of her breasts hanging out in public.
The “incident” took place at New Jersey’s Club 4Sixty6 on Sunday when Rowland was in the midst of delivering an impressive performance. While singing her single “Motivation,” her upper body dance moves caused her bra top to stretch upwards, exposing her nipular regions in front of everyone.

Nicki Minaj made the Wardrobe Malfunction Hall of Fame this morning.
The singer, performing live on Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series in New York City’s Central Park, saw her breast spill on out of her top.
Reactions came fast and furious to the Nicki Minaj nipple slip, which aired live on the East Coast (lucky!!!!), but was edited out for other time zones.
The Parents Television Council blasted GMA, saying the whole thing could have been prevented with a five-second tape delay. Wishful thinking?

Minaj and an unidentified man were allegedly arguing poolside at the Palomar Hotel in Dallas. As the verbal sparring intensified, the man left for his hotel room, the singer told an employee to call the cops and then she followed the man back inside.
Once there, she says he hit her in the lower lip.
When the police arrived, Minaj explained what happened but said she did not want to press charges. She added that the opponent was not herMore >
It’s all based on circumstantial evidence, but we’re The Hollywood Gossip, not The Hollywood Fact. So check out this allegedly sordid tale:
According to MediaTakeOut, Nicki Minaj walked in a troubling surprise during her birthday party in Vegas this past December: Amber Rose in the same room with Nicki’s boyfriend at the time, a dude named Safaree.
Minaj grew suspicious and thought “something was going on,” according to a source, who added that the singer later grabbed Safaree’s phone and found naked photos of Rose sent via BBM. We’ve posted one below:

In a newly-released video, Nicki Mina teams with Flo Rida and asks a question: “Where Them Girls At?”
Following this weekend’s BET Awards, we need not ask the 26-year-old rapper where the award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist is at, however: it’s on her mantel! Tweeted the artist in response to the honor:
“Dear BET, thanks for keeping the ‘female rap’ category in your award show. It encourages so many young girls to go hard. Love.”
