Mariah recently spoke with Barbara Walters about the fight she had with Nicki.
“Anytime anybody’s reeling threats at somebody, you know, that’s just — it’s not appropriate,” Mariah said. “I’ve got two babies; I’m not going to take any chances. Yeah, I did hire more security. I just felt it was the appropriate thing to do.”

Here’s what the judges, who shared the cover with host Ryan Seacrest, had to tell the mag:
Mariah, on deciding to do the reality show: “I was on the fence about the whole thing. I got approached by all the shows. [Husband Nick Cannon] said I should do it because it’s the top, it’s the cream of the crop. And I felt like, ‘Do the show that’s produced massive stars who have had major careers.’”
Nicki, on the stigma of being on the show: “[There's] a judgmental culture in hip-hop…sometimes you are afraid of being too famous because it’s almost, like, is that even cool? Being that accessible, someone you see on TV every week? I never pictured myself as that type of person. I’m still surprised that I decided to do it.”
Keith, on contestant’s desires to win: “It shouldn’t be about fame or money. It should be your calling. This is what you do. You don’t have a choice.”
“We’ve jelled really, really well as a group,” Nicki told reporters (via People) about her relationship with Mariah. “We have a great chemistry. We have a great rhythm now together, and we really are taking it serious. … We really are rooting for the contestants and we want to find a great American Idol.”
