In an eye opening interview Nicki Minaj says she thought Mariah Carey was her friend...
Nicki Minaj sat down with Ryan Seacrest and Ryan asked Nicki about the constant friction between herself and Mariah Carey on American Idol and Nicki says she was surprised how everything turned out.
Nicki tells Ryan,
"Imagine someone that you loved your whole life...imagine you meeting them and then all of a sudden feeling like you did something horrible to them but you just don't know what you did."
"That's what my relationship with Mariah is, and that's what it's been from the beginning. I just really thought that we were friends, but...that's the other thing I learned that this industry is so fake. You walk away thinking people are your friends and they're not. It's a couple nice hi and byes and then really, you better not step on nobody's toes. And God forbid you get a little shine. And God forbid you're maybe witty or quick on your toes or make someone laugh. Then maybe you're making another person feel insecure. You shouldn't have to dim your light to let another person shine."
