Keith Urban upset by American Idol feud

Los Angeles - Keith Urban is upset by Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj's feud on American Idol.

The country singer and fellow panelist Randy Jackson were caught in the middle when Mariah and Nicki had a furious bust up earlier this week, leading to auditions being cancelled for a day and sources close to Keith say he doesn't know what to do.

An insider told the Chicago Sun Times: "Keith is such a wonderful, easygoing, lovely guy. This kind of drama was not the reason he signed on to be an Idol judge. ... He hates nastiness in any form."

'Shoot the bitch'

During the fight Keith joked he felt like "the UN [United Nations]" caught in the middle.

Meanwhile, it has been revealed Mariah has hired extra security after claiming Nicki threatened to shoot her.

Mariah contacted chat show host Barbara Walters, who read out a statement on The View which revealed several staff members had heard Nicki say: "If I had a gun I would shoot the bitch."

Barbara explained: "She said she is very concerned, she's with her twins, she doesn't feel that anything would happen, but Nicki is unpredictable and Mariah says she can't take a chance and has hired extra security.

"Nicki has not apologised, but they were together in meetings... during which Nicki said, 'I love you, but we might fight again!'

"Mariah said at this point she doesn't feel comfortable emotionally but she will continue with the show because she loves mentoring the contestants."

    Who the hell gives the smallest iota of a fnck? The panel is comprised of The Jackson that wasn't good enough. An Australian that thinks he is a Texan country singer. A vapid b!tch with a singing voice akin to the warble of a banshee. And Nicki Minaj. Really? Nicki Minaj? The most talentless "superstar" I've ever had the misfortune of listening to. She can't sing, she can't compose and she most certainly can't write any lyrics that could be considered anything short of inspired by a child with paranoid schizophrenia, Downs syndrome and tourettes. Am I really meant to believe that a song like 'You a stupid hoe' is award worthy? Which idiot decided that this talentless hack was worthy of 2 AMA's and 2 MTV Awards. Oh, wait, These two awards are given by popular vote. It just shows how stupid the world has become.

      I think the whole Idols concept is well past its' sell-by date. As for that Minaj woman, her "music" really is awful but the teenage masses are force fed it by the greedy record labels who pump it down their throats. Have you ever tried to understand the words? they are unintelligable! SA Idols took nine months to find a winner and it will probably take less that nine months for that winner to fade into oblivion. Idols (from any country) is banned in my home.
