Her Experience Was No “Walk In The Park”
Mariah Carey sat down with Angie Martinez from Hot 97 and spilled the beans on her experience as a judge on American Idol.
The 43-year-old singer/songwriter says that she came into the competition expecting to be a judge on a three-person panel. However, the presence of Nicki Minaj did not stop the pop diva from grabbing her reported $18 million cheque from the FOX network.
The 12th season of the competition made headlines with the boiling feud between the two artists, “It was like going to work everyday in hell with Satan,” laughed Mariah. She later retracted the statement further on into the interview adding, “It didn’t affect me that much. I was disappointed.”
Her upcoming album ‘The Art of Letting Go’ is set to release in early 2014.
