Steven Tyler doesn't think that Nicki Minaj will make a good judge on American Idol. He said that had Bob Dylan auditioned for the show NickI "would have sent [Bob Dylan] to the cornfield."
In response, Nicki Tweeted: "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."
Steven told a Canadian talk show:
"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."
