American Idol continues to heat up, if only for the battles between the judges and always at the center of the drama is Nicki Minaj. This time Minaj’s beef is aimed strictly at Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler. Tyler had said that Minaj’s infighting was a distraction from the advancement of actual talent, claiming that “If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield!” Minaj took to Twitter, naturally, to criticize Tyler’s grab at fame (incoherently) and accused the singer of racism. “You assume I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? go f**k yourself and worry about yourself babe,” said Minaj. Now Tyler is saying that he is the furthest thing from racist in a new video defending his comments. Is this even a talent competition anymore?
