Is TLC's T-Boz taking a Shot at Nicki Minaj for Being a Judge on "Idol"?


Does Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins from TLC want beef with NICKI MINAJ?  In a new interview, T-Boz was asked what she thought of singing competition shows like "American Idol" and "X Factor".  And, she seemed to take a shot at Nicki in her response.

She said, "I don't support those shows anymore because it's not about the talent, I don't respect half [of] the [judges] I've seen lately.  'How the hell is she gon' tell me what I should be doing when her ass can't even sing?  Why is she there?'  Now, they've got rappers that don't even sing judging?  So, this is totally based off of popularity I guess.  I mean, to each their own.  Get your money, honey."

Since Nicki is the only female rapper on one of these shows, it sounds like T-Boz is taking about her specifically.  But T-Boz later clarified that she did NOT mean to hate on Nicki, she was just hating on the SHOWS.  She Tweeted that Nicki can, "rap her ass off" . . . and she, "sounds good singing her song."

She added, "I don't have a problem with Nicki, I don't like what the shows stand for.  Where's the lil yellow bus beep beep.  But if I did please know I'd say so."
