NICKI MINAJ TALKS MARIAH CAREY BEEF ON 'MY TRUTH': Nicki Minaj spoke about her beef between her and Mariah Carey on her E! reality show My Truth. Nicki said that the infamous argument between the two divas started when Mariah kept making passive aggressive comments towards her. She said, "I just know that I had reached my boiling point. Twenty minutes before that happened, she egged me on and I was like, 'You know what? Let me go.' I walked off. I stormed off the stage because I didn't want to do that. So, I left, and when I came back it was another jab and I said, 'Okay, now I'm gonna show you...' She's admitted that she did not want another female doing the show. Thinking somebody's coming to steal her shine, nitpicking, and I don't do well with that passive aggressive sh*t. I stay away from mother f*ckers. I work and keep it moving. I don't f*ck with the people in the business, but I did the show today and it was good. I made it clear like, if you do that again, I'm gonna do this again. Like, I'm not gonna allow it anymore. I can't." She added, "Obviously it's another ploy to get me off the show.[...]And ain't nobody gon' run me off that motha f*ckin' show."
