Mariah Carey is a true diva, so when she was asked about her feud with Nicki Minaj on "Nightline" last night, she answered in the most diva way possible.

The singer was interviewed by Barbara Walters for a special on Monday, where talk quickly turned to the "American Idol" spat between the two judges.

"It felt like an unsafe work environment," Mimi says of the fight, where Nicki reportedly said "If I had a gun, I would shoot that bitch."

"Anytime anybody's reeling threats at somebody, you know, it's not appropriate," adds Carey. "I'm a professional. I'm not used to that type of environment."

But the best part of the interview came when Walters asked about Nicki's song, "Hell Yeah."

Not only did Walters hilariously say the lyrics "I'm quick to check a bitch if she is out of line," but Carey's answer is classic diva. Check it out above!

We can't wait to see the fireworks on "Idol" when the new season premieres January 16.
