Last week, American Idol judge Nicki Minaj told three contestants to “get off the stage” after what she considered a lackluster performance of the Four Tops’ “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch).”

At least one of the contestants took offense to Minaj’s remarks. Devin Velez, who was eliminated from the Fox karaoke competition last week, later cracked that Minaj “could have been upset because the night before she was wearing the same colored dress as Mariah,” referring to Mariah Carey, another American Idol judge.

Minaj has now responded to Velez’s remarks with some harsh comments on her Twitter feed:

Burnell, Devin & Lazaro – Can't Help Myself… by IdolxMuzic


    I’m upset that Devin Velez was eliminated from American Idol and he was a bit bitter himself. I think Nicki Minaj was correct that they did fight for the contestants and it’s up to America to decide who they vote off. I enjoy watching my primetime shows with my wife after they have been recorded, since I’m stuck working at DISH in the evenings. It wasn’t easy for me to get all my shows until I upgraded to the DISH Hopper DVR, using the PrimeTime Anytime feature. Once enabled it will record the 4 major networks automatically during primetime hours. I no longer have a mess at home, or my DVRs recording primetime shows and my family stuck with recordings. Now I can get all my shows sent to one TV and my families free to watch what they want on theirs, which makes everyone happy.
