This image released by Fox shows the new judges for the singing competition series, "American Idol," from left, Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj and Randy Jackson during a news conference in New York on Monday Sept. 17, 2012.

This gives a whole new meaning the word “passionate.” American Idol producers say it’s just all fun and games among judges—and Nicki Minaj doesn’t want to kill Mariah Carey. “We love and support all of the judges and the fantastic work they are doing,” they said in a statement to Access Hollywood. This is totally acceptable, if you ignore that Carey—who is currently walking around with extra bodyguards—told Barbara Walters that Minaj said that if she had a gun she would “shoot the bitch.” Minaj has also gone on a Twitter rant against the pop singer.
