Nicki Minaj Feuds with Eliminated 'American Idol' Contest Devin Velez

Nicki Minaj is at it again, arguing with someone from American Idol. Only this time it isn’t Mariah Carey.

The American Idol Judge went on a twitter rant against recently eliminated contestant, Devin Velez. Nothing could convince Nicki to use her one time only pass to save Devin.

When E! News asked why Nicki didn’t use her pass, Devin responded, “I don't know why. She [Nicki Minaj] has a lot of girl power and lot of girl thoughts. Maybe she just wants a girl to win. The girls have been so consistent with their songs, and the girls are amazing this year [so] I have nothing bad to say about any of the contestants.”

These comments lead to Nicki getting some criticism for not saving him. In response she said:

“Lol. Be mad @ AMERICA when u get sent home. The JUDGES are the ones who FOUGHT for America to get the opp to VOTE 4 U!!! #memba? America r the "potential" fans...u MUST win them over. "Saves" are bulls--t and they know it. Those girls are just too good this year. Send the judges some flowers and a card. If Curtis didn't get SAVED, NONE of u get saved! Best male voice of the SEASON!!!!!!!!!!! #TruthTea. Trust me BEW BEW. If EYE didn't want u in that TOP, YOU wldnt have been in that TOP. Fought for ALL of you. So just simply b gracious. Jennifer Hudson didn't win!!!! Oscar winner!!! #memba??? ok. Take that exposure and let your light shine.”

Devin Velez didn’t let Nicki’s long rant just go by without saying anything.

“That moment when an adult stoops down to the 3rd grade level...LOL grow up Hun, I've got songs to write. :) #movingforward," said Devin.
