STEVEN TYLER APOLOGIZES TO NICKI MINAJ

11/29/2012

Steven Tyler has apologized to Nicki Minaj for his comments regarding her judging ability on American Idol. As previously reported, Tyler said that Nicki "would have sent [Bob Dylan] to the cornfield" if he had appeared on the show -- insinuating that she doesn't know much about rock music. In true Nicki fashion, the rap diva responded on Twitter, saying, "That's a racist comment. You assume that I wouldn't have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go f*** yourself and worry about yourself babe."

 

According to TMZ.com, Tyler responded on Canadian show eTalk, saying, "I apologize if it was taken wrong, Nicki . . . but I am the farthest from [being a racist]. I am the last thing on this planet as far as being a racist. I don't know where she got that out of me saying I'm not sure how she would've judged Bob Dylan."

Nicki hasn't responded yet.

  • In other news, Nicki's re-release The Re-Up has moved 36,000 copies the first week out.

WHAT DO YOU THINK??

  • Were Steven's comments racist?
  • Is he wrong for judging Nicki before even seeing her judge?
  • Should he have apologized or stood by his comments?

  • olivia on Bossip.com writes: "He's not feeding into this childish mess that she's trying to drag him in to. He's a grown man who does not entertain twitter rants and takes the high road."
  • The Duke on Bossip.com writes: "Perhaps not, but he's still a flamin fool himself. With his old wash up a**. Who is he to tell anyone how they would react to a certain genre of music. And I am old enough to have listened to AeroSmith when they were decent. He's not that good anyway, wayyyy overrated when compared to other classic rock groups of the time!"
