Last night’s “American Idol” offered viewers a taste of the bitterness between judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. But apparently, that was just the tip of the iceberg.

Minaj followed up her exchanged with Carey last night with a series of blistering tweets aimed toward Carey today, effectively calling the singer a grumpy old woman.

In one post, Minaj told fans of Carey to ask themselves “Why a woman SO successful at her age, is still so INSECURE, and bitter.”

In addition, she alluded to a reported plot to remove Carey from the show and replace her with Jennifer Lopez.

“All dem #1s but JLo phone ringin? Lol. I guess having a personality, being a secure woman, and giving genuine critique still trumps that.” So far, no response from Mariah.

We will see how the latest tirade plays out on the air tonight on FOX.
