Nicki Minaj Attacks Steven Tyler for "Racist" Critique

Hell hath no fury like a Barbie scorned

Taking a break from her characteristically cool-headed persona, Nicki Minaj is once again lashing out at an American Idol judge on Twitter. But Mariah Carey needn't get Barbara Walters back on the phone: This time, former judge Steven Tyler is receiving the Wrath of Roman.

It all started when Tyler (not so innocently) slammed Minaj's potential as a judge, saying, “If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield!" Which, as it turned out, was not the wisest decision given Minaj's offense-as-self-defense tendencies.

In a series of hot-blooded tweets, she branded him a racist, a hypocrite and suggested he start wearing a "no coloreds allowed" shirt. Also, she got pretty cross with him. Check out the tweets below and let us know if you think she has a point or if she's overreacting in the comments below.

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

When Steven 1st went on Idol he was ridiculed by his peers & fans alike. Called a sell out. So what does he do? Ridicule the next judge.

August 29: Little Orphan Ed?

The "Don't" singer, Ed Sheeran, makes a special appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" as the lovable orphan, Annie. Donning the famous red dress, and the equally famous red hair, we think Sheeran would make a great understudy. The best part though? His little dog friend, Sandy on that skateboard.
