With all the news surrounding Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj’s supposed feud on this season of American Idol, it makes sense for the competition to weigh in.
Cee Lo Green, who is a coach and judge on NBC’s The Voice, was having lunch in West Hollywood yesterday when TMZ caught up with him to ask about the Idol fight, and he confirmed what most of us already assume about Hollywood—it’s all for show.
“This is Hollywood, California. Hardly anything’s legit,” he said.
Green isn’t scared of the fact that this is most likely a ratings ploy for Idol, however, as he has faith in his NBC show.
“I’m not intimidated,” he said. “I think it’s entertainment for everybody.”
Meanwhile, blind auditions on The Voice are over, and the real competition begins. Catch Green and the other judges—Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton—on Monday and Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. on NBC.
