Everyone is talking about the rumored feud between American Idol's divas, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, and ET's Rocsi Diaz was the only reporter to sit down with each of them on the topic of their relationship.
Minaj denied the existence of a feud in the first place, but that might depend on your definition.
"There is no feud! A feud is an ongoing beef between divas," Minaj said before jokingly adding, "Well, maybe there is a feud."
Minaj did admit to having disagreements, but she was quick to point out that this is normal when strong opinions come into play.
"We're human, but we're on TV and it's magnified!" Minaj said.
Carey confirmed that she beefed up security after feeling threatened by Minaj on set last fall, but everything seemed copacetic between the two ladies when they appeared at The Television Critics Association Tour on Tuesday.
"This is a very passionate panel," Carey said. "I think there are a lot of strong personalities and, starting this process, I thought it was a possibility there could be differences of opinions. The fighting is what it is. This is American Idol, it's bigger than all that. It's bigger than some stupid, trumped-up thing. It's about the next superstar."
American Idol returns to FOX Wednesday, January 16 and Thursday January 17 at 8/7c.
