Hell hath no fury like the husband who also works as a DJ scorned. Though Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj are no longer cursing each other out while a camera runs, the resentment seemingly lingers. That is, at least on those around each of the new American Idol judges.
According to People, Nick Cannon was deejaying an event for Maxim in Hollywood last week and was not here for any requests for him to play Nicki Minaj. Apparently he went, “La, la, la, la, la” I can’t hear you inside his head.
“Cannon arrived with a posse of four blinged out guys. They were all wearing lots of grills and jewelry,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE. “He drove all of his friends to the event in a Porsche.”
While walking the red carpet, Cannon was anything but shy about answering questions about his wife Mariah Carey’s feud with American Idol co-judge Nicki Minaj.
“He kept using her full name when he referenced Mariah,” the source adds. “It was almost like he was a fan as opposed to her husband.”
Then it was time for Cannon to assume his role as deejay.
“Nick hyped up the party by playing all his favorite songs, including ones by Carly Rae Jepsen and One Direction,” the source says. “The crowd was loving the music and Nick was dancing!”
A guest approached the deejay booth to request that Cannon play Minaj’s hit song “Starships” but the America’s Got Talent host “acted like he didn’t hear the request,” the source adds. “Clearly he was supporting his wife during her feud.”
