The feud between Nicki Minaj and her American Idol co-judge Mariah Carey shows no signs of slowing down, reports.

Minaj, 30, attacked the Always Be My Baby singer on Twitter Thursday morning calling her bitter and insecure with no personality.

The current rumblings between the two was fuelled by a series of heated exchanges on American Idol Wednesday night when Mariah, 43, taunted the Super Bass star for never having a number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

During the show, Nicki fought back Mariah’s jibes by breaking out a cotton swab and telling the diva to clean out her ears.

“Why a woman SO successful at her age, is still so INSECURE, and bitter,” Nicki wrote in a series of messages aimed at Mariah.

Nicki also referenced reports that Jennifer Lopez has been eyed up for a return to the reality TV show to replace Mariah.

“All dem #1s but JLo phone ringin? Lol. I guess having a personality, being a secure woman, and giving genuine critique still trumps that,” she vented.

As previously reported, Nicki and Mariah’s feud has been escalating in recent months. During a live April 17 show, Nicki sarcastically told Mariah to “simmer down, sir” in a British accent after a disagreement over finalist Kree Harrison’s rendition of The Black Crowes’ She Talks to Angels, which Mariah thought was off-the-mark.

“I disagree … that was the best performance of the night,” Nicki said, to which Mariah chimed in, “I wasn’t saying she was awkward … you don’t really disagree with me.”

“No, I do and I’ll explain,” Nicki said — at which point Mariah tried to interject again — and she told her, “Simmer down, sir.”
