Nick Cannon unloaded on “The Talk” giving his take on wife Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj‘s “American Idol” feud. “My wife ain’t got time for that!” he said. “In the book of Mariah Carey, ‘American Idol’ will be a footnote.”

“It’s kinda unfortunate because when you see someone like my wife who tries to remain classy and tries to take the high road, it feels like everybody else around it, including to the network and the producers try to feed into this sound bite drama. It feels like it lacks substance.

“People love that show for the contestants and the story and discovering a new star. That’s why my wife did it – to connect with the contestants. But when they feed all this other stuff into it, that’s not what she’s about.”
