Queen Latifah on Mariah Carey-Nicki Minaj Drama: 'Respect Your Elders'

Last week the Internet was buzzing over Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj'sAmerican Idol beef. Another well-known diva, Queen Latifah, shared her opinion on Anderson Cooper saying, "You gotta respect your elders to a point."

When asked whose side she's on, the Steel Magnolias star said, "I would definitely not take sides in ignorance… but that's really not about them. At the end of the day, they are both very blessed to be in a position that they are. It's about giving a leg up to the new people who want to be a Nicki or be a Mariah."
