ニッキー・ミナージュ、敵対するマライア・キャリーとの関係を語る

「アメリカン・アイドル」のシーズン12に審査員として出演するニッキー・ミナージュが、番組で共演するマライア・キャリーとの不穏な関係について口を開いた。



「上手く言えないけど、大物のディーヴァ同士がぶつかったってだけだと思うの。スタジオに入る前にスタッフから、『マライアがあなたには審査員として参加してほしくないと思っている』と言われたのよ。でも私は、『それは違うわ。マライアと友人なのよ』と言ったの。それでスタッフと口論になったのよ。メディアで言われていることを鵜呑みにしないで欲しいわね」

しかし、2人の関係が微妙であることは確かなようで、「確かにその後意見の相違みたいなのを感じるようになったの。でも私はクレイジーな自分を演出することで気分を誤魔化したわ。自分のことを好きじゃない人がいたら、変な自分を演じるようになるのよ。何て言うか、自己防衛本能みたいなものね。自分の気持ちが傷ついているから、クレイジーになることで誤魔化すの」と現場の雰囲気を説明している。

マライアはニッキーから責められた後、自身のセキュリティを強化したことを告白しているが、ニッキー本人は今の2人の間にわだかまりはないことを強調した。

「2人の仲は大丈夫よ。マライアを恨み続けることはできないわ。誰も信じないかも知れないけれど、私は長年彼女を聴いて育ったのよ。『ビジョン・オブ・ラブ』を母と2人で1日中歌っていたの。彼女がもう今回のことを忘れてくれたかどうかは分からないけれど、とにかく私は忘れたわ。もう笑って済ませることができるの。彼女がまだ恨んでいるとしたら、それは仕方ないわね」なお、ニッキーは番組についても心配しているようで、「何か良いコメントを私が残したら、編集されずに上手く放送に残ってくれればいいと思うわ。番組は出場している人たちのためのものだし、審査員が何か変なコメントを言ったようにしたくないの。またみんな私のことを変な人だって思っちゃうでしょ。私はそこまで変じゃないわよ」とコメントしている。さて、肝心のマライアは現在どう感じているのだろう...。

ニッキー・ミナージュ、敵対するマライア・キャリーとの関係を語る

When Kelly saw the cover art for her 'All I Ever Wanted' CD, she didn't recognize herself! "It’s very colorful and they have definitely Photoshopped the crap out of me but I don’t care. haha! Whoever she is, she looks great,” Clarkson wrote on her blog at the time.

Jennifer Hudson had much fuller figure back when she released her first solo CD. But in a recent interview with Dateline, Hudson recalls feeling shocked when she glimpsed her body on the album's cover. "It was like, 'Where is the rest of me?' They photoshopped me probably to the size I'm now on that cover, but we all know I was nowhere near that. Why would you Photoshop that?"

Take a closer look at Adam's debut CD cover. Notice anything missing? Yeah, that would be his left shoulder!

Madonna's a huge fan of photoshop - this much we know. The 53-year-old singer typically uses the image altering program to smooth out her wrinkles -- as she did on this album cover. But can we talk about the odd proportions of her body? The torso-to-arm ratio is just off ... in fact, Madge's pose looks downright painful!

Britney Spears was dealing with one of the darkest times in her life when 'Circus' hit stores. The star had put on considerable weight and was dealing with various mental problems that altered her physical and emotional well being. However, looking at the album art, you could never tell! The photo is so altered it looks less like a pic and more like a painting!

We love Mariah's luscious curves. Too bad whoever Photoshopped the cover of her album 'Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel,' isn't a fan. Just check out what they did to her waist in the middle shot -- it's not human!

In real life, nothing much about Heidi Montag's body is real, so why should her album artwork be any different?! However, the artist who retouched 'Sex Ed' went a little overboard when working on Heidi's face. The reality star's eyes were moved so close together she looks a bit, well, cross-eyed.

Around the time Jessica released her 2010 holiday album, the singer had begun to take some heat for her expanding curves. Perhaps that's why whoever Photoshopped the CD cover blew out the brightness, thus hiding her rounder face and part of her body!

ニッキー・ミナージュ、敵対するマライア・キャリーとの関係を語る

Diaz has been rocking out since her teens in Long Beach, Calif. "I banged my head quite a bit," the siren told Harper's Bazaar. "I liked everything from Iron Maiden to Ozzy to AC/DC."

Not only does the Ghost Rider star love classic metal, his 21-year-old son, Weston, is the lead singer of a black metal group called Eyes of Noctum.

"I listened to all kinds of metal as a kid. Metallica, Guns N' Roses," said Smith in an MTV interview. She took her metalhead fandom to the next level in 2002 when the actress formed Wicked Wisdom. Smith is the lead singer in the band who has also been a featured performer on the famed Ozzfest tour.

The actor is a huge Guns N' Roses fan and is close with singer Axl Rose who even donated the band's classic 1987 single, "Sweet Child o' Mine" for use in Rourke's 2008 critically acclaimed film, The Wrestler -- for free!

The English screen goddess is an avid '80s metal fan and concert goer. "Oh yah, I’m definitely an old rocker,” said Weisz in an interview earlier this year with The Telegraph.


The Canadian comedy icon showed his love for extreme metal when he cast Cannibal Corpse in an unforgettable scene in his 1994 hit, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.

The Disney teen queen might record PG-rated pop songs, but she surprisingly also loves brutal metal acts like Lamb of God and Dimmu Borgir.  "I would love to secretly do some work on a metal band's album," Lovato told MTV in a 2008 interview.

Before he became one of The Avengers, Fassbender was a teen metal fan, telling Independent Woman: “My favorites were Metallica, Sepultura and anything off Slayer’s Reign In Blood.”

Besides being one of Hollywood's busiest comedic actors, Black also fronts Tenacious D, a comedic rock duo. On their 2001 self-titled debut album, Black represented his heavy metal roots by recording "Dio," a tribute to the late former Rainbow, Black Sabbath and solo star, Ronnie James Dio.

In a 2011 radio interview, Gaga revealed that an Iron Maiden concert changed her life. "It was my first Maiden experience and I just realized in that moment in the show that that was the kind of artist I wanted to be," said the singer of the 2011 live experience.
