Former American Idol judge and Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler really infuriated Nicki Minaj recently when he made some ill-advised comments about her to MTV.  He was critiquing Nicki's judging skills and made a reference to her sending Bob Dylan to a cornfield, a comment which she wasn't too happy about.

"You just have to give your opinion. It wasn't hard for me, but I would imagine it's hard for some people, and they need a manager to say 'Shut the f*ck up, and just give them your opinion.  These kids, they just got out of a car from the Midwest somewhere and they're in New York City, they're scared to death; you're not going to get the best [out of them]. ... If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying."

Nicki was quick to respond to Steven's cornfield comments by blasting him for being a racist on her Twitter account, while at the same time she found an opening to slip in a jab at Mariah Carey.  Check out her angry tweets about Steven's comment above.

Do you think he had racist intent behind his statement?
