Ryan Seacrest stopped by "Today" Tuesday to tamp down rumors that new "American Idol" judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj are feuding. Seacrest stressed that the two "get along fine," but conceded that their strong personalities have clashed a time or two.
"There are not too many dull moments between the two of them, but at the end of the day, we all hug and laugh and go home and get ready for another day. They get along fine, but they're strong and candid in their opinion."
Seacrest joked that he was more worried about how another pair of "Idol" judges were getting along. Randy Jackson and Keith Urban "will not share a mirror," he quipped.
Carey herself downplayed rumors of a rift in an interview with the AP. Stressing that they'd only been taping for two days, she observed that, "A feud takes a little longer to happen."
TMZ started the feud speculation with a report that Minaj and Carey kept talking over each other during the first "Idol" taping on Sunday.
