Maybe this whole Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj feud on American Idol isn’t as real as we first thought, this according to former AI judge, Steven Tyler.

Both the former AI judge and The Voice‘s Cee Lo weighed in on the alleged feud between the two pop star judges, saying all the fighting is just a stunt to hype up the new season of the show.

TMZ caught up with both stars and asked if they thought the feud was just a PR stunt, to which Tyler replied, “of course, are you kidding?”

Cee Lo responded, “This is Hollywood, California. Hardly anything’s legit. I think it’s entertainment for everybody.”

So maybe Mariah and Nicki are actually good friends after all. Listen below to the Entertainment Report to hear what Steven Tyler and Cee Lo said about the American Idol feud.
