TLC singer Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins has hit out Nicki Minaj for judging American Idol claiming she has no singing talent and therefore shouldn't be judging other people on theirs.
'Starships' hitmaker Nicki sits on the new panel of the competition alongside Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson, and is primarily known for being a rapper although she often sings in her songs.
However, T-Boz says Nicki has no vocal ability and doesn't have the right to judge other people on their singing talents while also slamming other celebrities for becoming famous despite having no real talent.
"Just because you’re on TV gyrating and boning and sucking penises, it’s not talent, honey. Maybe in the porn industry, but over here, we entertain," T-Boz told This Is Max while in London last weekend at the MOBO Awards.

"I don’t respect half [of] the people I’ve seen lately. How the hell is she gon’ tell me what I should be doing when her azz can’t even sing," she added in reference to Nicki.
"Why is she there? And then…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. All I’m saying is, I will never watch [your] shows again."
Nicki seems to be on everyone's hitlist this week after Lady Gaga's producer DJ White Shadow hit out at the rapper, claiming she isn't talented.
"Ok. Nicki Minaj. F**k you. Get a grip. You are lucky, not talented. Stop. Please stop. XO. DJWS," the DJ tweeted on Tuesday.
The tweet was deleted shortly after, but White Shadow addressed his comment again, later writing: "Oops didn't mean to delete that. But I don't recall what I said, basically it was "come on son" to nicki. Cause you are wack."
Nicki's dedicated fans were clearly furious with the jabs and bombarded the DJ with defensive messages on behalf of the rapper, however, White Shadow was standing by his opinion.
"You can be judgmental. My views are my own. I am by myself. I don't hate. It's not hate, just dislike for poor taste," he replied.
The first episode of Nicki's new E! fly-on-the-wall documentary, Nicki Minaj: My Truth, aired this week and showed the star flipping out while on set of her music video with R&B singer Cassie where she became angry with the amount of people that were watching the shoot.
Entertainmentwise reached out to Nicki Minaj's management on T-Boz's quotes but received no comment.
