Before the premiere episode of Season 12 even aired, the rivalry between the two superstars was made public, thanks to a leaked video, in which Minaj and Carey engaged in a heated argument during the initial audition rounds last year.
And months later, Minaj tells MTV News that their feud is ongoing, but she would not open up about the exact details of their fray.
She said, "Listen, I just know that I have a lot of self-control on that panel. A lot of self-control. That's all I'll say about that. ... I focus on the contestants. I don't know about anybody else. We picked some really great people and I'm really proud of that."
And when asked if the feud with Carey has improved over the months they've spent together, she answered with a succinct, "No."
