Tyler's comments catch Nicki's attention
Nicki Minaj Blasts Steven Tyler
Nicki Minaj took to Twitter to blast Steven Tyler for comments he made about her judging ability on American Idol. In an interview with MTV News, Tyler said, "If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with ['Idol' contestant] Phillip Phillips."
He continued on the judging panel, "They should have something going on, which is called 'camaraderie.' They should have something going on so thick and beautiful that they can lay it over the new talent that's trying to birth itself. It needs to be birthed, not judged by 'entertainment' factors, it needs to be judged by people that [are] honest, true, that have the 'it' factor. Not the 'it' factor because they can fight."
