New York, Nov. 28 (ANI): Nicki Minaj and Steven Tyler have been caught in a war of words after the Aerosmith frontman criticized the fight between her and her fellow 'American Idol' judge Mariah Carey calling it their lack of camaraderie.

"They should have something going on so thick and beautiful that they can lay it over the new talent that's trying to birth itself," the New York Post quoted him as saying in an interview with MTV News.

"These kids, they just got out of a car from the Midwest somewhere and they're in New York City, they're scared to death; you're not going to get the best [out of them]," he said.

But it was 64-year-old musician's following comment that angered Minaj, "If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying."

An angry Minaj responded on her Twitter "Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven't seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet!"

"I understand you really wanted to keep your job but take that up with the producers. I haven't done anything to you. That's a racist comment."

"You assume that I wouldn't have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go [bleep] yourself and worry about yourself babe," she tweeted.

She later wrote, "When Steven 1st went on Idol he was ridiculed by his peers and fans alike. Called a sell out. So what does he do? Ridicule the next judge." (ANI)
