Nicki Minaj & Mariah Carey Feudgate 2012: Read Nicki’s 5 Shadiest Tweets About Mariah

We have yet to formally declare a side in the ongoing feud between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey that exploded this week following a confrontation during American Idol auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina. But if anyone is winning points for shameless Twitter-dragging, it’s Dear Old Nicki.

The stakes have been escalating since video leaked of the two yelling at each other: Carey’s been cagier, as reports surfaced that Minaj threatened to shoot her with a gun in the heat of the confrontation, and Barbara Walters told viewers that Carey upped her security following the incident. Minaj chose to simply air all her dirty laundry yesterday by taking to Twitter to “spill the tea.”

But since Minaj’s timeline is a little hard to read — clotted as it is with re-tweets of her stans defending her, inexplicable hashtags and ALL-CAPS GIBBERISH — we picked the five best missives that showcase Minaj’s humility, grace and poise (riiiight) as she’s fearlessly weathered this maelstrom of controversy. Check our favorite selections from Nicki Minaj’s hyperactive Twitter feed:

1. Nicki Minaj pays respect to the divas who came before her. 

2. Nicki Minaj has stayed grounded as the amounts rolled in. 

3. Nicki Minaj has a nuanced take on race relations.

4. Nicki Minaj doesn’t need the media. 

5. Nicki Minaj is a pacifist thought leader, like Martin Luther King, Jr. or the Dalai Lama.
