Nicki Minaj has extended her beef with Mariah Carey to Barbara Walters, according to the Huffington Post. After the tensions between the two American Idol judges led to a confrontation last month, Walters described Minaj as "unpredictable" on The View. In part two of the E! special Nicki Minaj: My Truth last night, Minaj revealed she was hurt by the comments and says Walters never reached out to her.

"Am I not good enough for you to get my side? . . . If I was J. Lo, you woulda called J. Lo's camp," said Minaj, referring to previous Idol judge Jennifer Lopez. "I'm only good enough for you to tell people that I’m unpredictable when you don't fucking know me!"

Following Walters' comments last month, Minaj tweeted, "Barbara walters didn't reach out from our team barbz. I guess we're too dangerous. Don't shake if u don't wannA get shook!!!! LmAooooooooooo." Walters countered that she had indeed reached out to Minaj. Part three of Nicki Minaj: My Truth airs November 17th.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
