It all started after Tyler did an interview for MTV. When asked for his opinion about the new "Idol" judges. he answered:
"I know that they've got something going on on the judges' panel. It shouldn't be [Nicki/Mariah infighting], it should be just the opposite: They should have something going on, which is called 'camaraderie.'
Steven further questioned the new "Idol" judges' willingness to put the contestants first.
"These [contestants], they just got out of a car from the Midwest somewhere, and they're in New York City. They're scared to death; you're not going to get the best [out of them]. If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with [me and J.Lo], we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just sayin'."
Not the one to "keep quiet"… Minaj blasted Tyler back with a ranting tweet…
"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. You assume that I wouldn't have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go f*** yourself and worry about yourself babe. 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."
