Nicki Minaj’s recent attack on Mariah Carey during a recent filming of American Idol led to many celebs having their say on the pair’s ‘attention seeking’ ways and one star to blast Minaj was rapper Example, who apparently labelled her a ‘diva’.
Entertainmentwise caught up with the the star, real name Elliot Greave, to find out exactly what was said...
In a viral video, Minaj appears furious as she shouts at Carey, saying: "I told them, I'm not f**kin' putting up with her f**kin' highness over there." Ouch.
Speaking about Minaj's actions after the 'attack', rapper Example told The Sun: “I’ve met Minaj. I’m not a fan. I don’t think you can be that much of a diva unless you’ve had loads of massive tunes.”
“In ten years, people are going to be struggling to remember anything Minaj has done except her verse on Monster.”
However, when we asked Example exactly what Nicki did to provoke such an attack from him, he insisted that "it wasn’t just a random attack". Oo-er!
The rapper told us, “I recently said something about Nicki Minaj but some people made it out like I was just having a random attack on her...the question was ‘Who do you prefer out of Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj?’, so I said Mariah Carey.”
He then added, “Then they said, ‘Well why don’t you like Nicki Minaj?’ so I did give them a reason, but it definitely wasn’t just a random attack.”
And not one to keep his opinions hidden, Example then went on to say that he DOES sometimes make things up, when he gets bored of answering the same questions over and over again...
He said, “I do get bored sometimes and make s**t up, but majority is based around real life.”
“To give you another example, I recently made up a story that was about an episode of Hollyoaks, but I’ve never actually seen Hollyoaks. I just get bored of answering the same questions!”
Ohh Elliot, you joker!
