Nicki Minaj must have thought she signed up to judge a real talent competition or something when she joined the cast of American Idol.

Sources connected to the star say she's pretty peeved at the show's producers for what she alleges is them egging on the feud between her and Mariah Carey. She thinks that the brain trust behind the show want them to beef with each other so it brings in viewers.

And she's probably right about that. This is reality television, after all.

Nicki will reportedly walk off set next time Mariah gets a little extra with her. She's not having it.
