The 31-year-old rapper surprised fans today by releasing a super sexy (and NSFW) single and music video titled "Lookin Ass N---a." Not so coincidentally, her known rival and former American Idol feud partner has been gearing up to release her new single and music video for "You're Mine (Eternal)" for the past few weeks.
Minaj announced the single on her Twitter today with no mention of Carey, writing, "Video on http://WorldStarHipHop.com - Lookin Ass N----z."
Meanwhile, Carey stopped by Power 105.1's Breakfast Club radio show this morning to promote her single. Talk quickly turned to her stint on American Idol.
"I was a professional on that show, and that's all I have to say," she insisted. "I was a complete professional."
"Nicki was late, though," one of the hosts added.
"Who?" Carey asked without missing a beat. "I don't even remember what that was. That was a moment in my life that I'm just going to press delete."
