London: Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey have refused to deny reports of their fight on ‘American Idol,’ just hours after Minaj officially joined the talent show.

“There’s been a feud in two days?” the New York Daily News quoted Carey as saying when she was asked about Sunday afternoon’s fight with Minaj

“A feud takes a little longer,” she said.

Minaj simply mumbled something that was inaudible as her reply to the question.

According to, the quarrel happened when the ‘Super Bass’ hitmaker started critiquing a contestant and Carey could not stop interrupting.

Each time the 42-year-old singer interrupted, Minaj fought back by loudly talking over Mariah. Carey later took to Twitter to tweet about her first “Idol” taping.

“Several classic moments so far,” she tweeted.
