It just would not be American Idol if judges, both past and present, were not ripping each other.  In a recent interview with MTV News, former judge andAerosmith front-man Steven Tyler says the job is about finding and nurturing talent.  He explains using a famous musician and last season's winner:

"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 Phillip Phillips. Just saying."

Nicki Minaj thinks that is racist.  The rapper took to Twitter to bash Tyler.  In addition to the use of some expletives, Minaj tweeted:

"Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven't seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet!  I understand you really wanted to keep your job but take that up with the producers. I haven't done anything to you. That's a racist comment."

This just in.  Nicki Minaj is a Bob Dylan fan.
