Steven Tyler and Cee-Lo Thought 'Idol' Feud Is Fake
Two celebrities have agreed that the feud between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj on "American Idol" audition was actually staged. Steven Tyler, who used to judge the show with Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez for two seasons, called it a BS, and so did "The Voice" coach Cee-Lo.
TMZ caught up with Tyler outside a restaurant on Friday, October 5 night, asking him whether he thought the fighting was not real. " 'Course, are you kidding?" he told the reporter, adding that he would never go back to the show. Tyler quit last season to pursue new projects with Aerosmith.
Meanwhile, Cee-Lo commented, "This is Hollywood, California. Hardly anything's legit."
Host Ryan Seacrest himself has admitted that the feud was good for the ratings. "We want that! We want them to be on this panel together. This is a good team, a great team, to go out and look for the next American Idol ... the feedback that they give is very good," he said on his morning radio show earlier this week.
