See why we’re having ice coffee and buttermilk biscuits:

• Nicki Minaj isn’t a happy camper this morning and former American Idol judge Steven Tyler is on the receiving end of her fiery tweets. Tyler made some not so nice comments about the rapper implying she’s a racist. He told MTV News that had Bob Dylan auditioned for Idol, Minaj would “have had him sent out to the cornfield.” The Pink Barbie herself responded to the claims saying, “Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield? Steve, you haven’t seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet. I understand you really wanted to keep your job but take that up with the producers. I haven’t done anything to you. That’s a racist comment. You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan? Why? Black? Rapper? What? Go f*ck yourself and worry about yourself babe.” [Hollywood Reporter]

America’s Next Top Model hunky judge Rob Evans turned himself into police recently. The British model surrendered after learning a warrant for his arrest was issued over a fight that happened in March. He was charged with felony assault and released after posting $60,000 bail. [Grio]
