Mariah Carey And Nicki Minaj Disagree, But Not At War

New reports say Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj are already having trouble with each other after only days of taping "American Idol." However, insiders tell me the two have a mutual respect for each other and are simply disagreeing over talent.

“Mariah is old-school, where everything starts and ends with the voice,” one source close to production tells me. “Nicki is looking for talent that catches her eye. She is far more interested in the whole package rather than just the ability to sing.”

The taping of "American Idol" started Sunday at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. The new judges, Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban, are joining judge Randy Jackson and host Ryan Seacrest.

“Mariah and Nicki might never be best friends, but they can work together,” a source close to the talent tells me. “If Nicki can work with Madonna, she can work with Mariah.”
