An Updated Transcript of Nicki Minaj's Anti-Mariah Carey Freak Out


TMZ has put together an updated transcript from the video of NICKI MINAJ'S freak-out on MARIAH CAREY during "American Idol" auditions in Charlotte on Tuesday.  It's a low-quality video, and it's packed with censored profanity, so it's difficult to make out what Nicki and Mariah were saying.  But here's TMZ's latest stab at it:

Nicki"Think I'm playin?  Think this [crap] is [an effing] joke?  Think it's a joke? . . . Say one more disrespectful thing to me, if you say one more disrespectful thing to me, off with your head!" 

Mariah"I am not being disrespectful."

Nicki"Off with your head, off with your head . . . Don't tell me I'm insecure, don't tell me I'm inadequate . . . you don't know . . . I don't feel inadequate.  You're the insecure one sittin' up there running down her résumé every five minutes . . .

"Every time you take a shot at me I'ma take it back, and if you gotta [effing] problem then handle it.  I told them, I'm not [effing] putting up with your [effing] highness over there . . . figure it the [eff] out.  Figure it out."

Mariah"Why, why . . . do I have a three-year-old sitting around me?"

Nicki"I'm not sitting here for 20 minutes and having you run down your résumé everyday.  No!  Goodbye!"

Mariah"Listen . . . I can't see my kids because you decided to make . . . to have a little baby fit and going all around the stage."

Nicki"Good, well then go see them now, go see them now . . . you're boring as [eff], you're boring as [eff]."

Ryan Seacrest Says the Nicki Minaj / Mariah Carey Blow Up Was "Heated" . . . But "Fantastic"

On his radio show yesterday, RYAN SEACREST confirmed that "American Idol" stopped production Tuesday, after NICKI MINAJ and MARIAH CAREY started lashing out at each other.  Although, he adds that it was "at the end of the day."

Ryan calls the altercation "heated" and "intense", but he says it's "fantastic" because, "We want that.  We want them to be on this panel together.  This is a good team, a GREAT team, the feedback that they give is very good."

(Here's the audio.  It's nine minutes long, and most of it is about Nicki and Mariah, although Ryan spends a lot of time repeating himself, and talking about Thai food.)
