Mariah Hated American Idol
Mariah Carey didn’t hold back when asked about her time as a judge on American Idol admitting, “Honestly, I hated it.”
The singer, who butted heads with fellow judge Nicki Minaj on the most recent season of the reality show, told Hot 97’s Angie Martinez, that the experience wasn’t at all what she thought it would be like when she signed on.
“I thought it was going to be a three-person panel,” she admitted, thinking she’d have fun working with her longtime friend Randy Jackson. “But it wasn’t that.”
Carey continued: “It was like going to work every day in hell with Satan.”
Carey then put a gloved hand over her eyes and laughed. “I’m just playing. It didn’t affect me that much,” she continued. “I was disappointed.”
Well, the rest of us enjoyed the two of you with your backs to each other all season. That was fun!
