And today's Celebrity Death Match theme continues.
In this here interview, Mariah imparts her thoughts on bad post pregnancy PMS (much to Jermaine Dupri's mortification), fans (the fanning kind), how Prosecco has less calories than Champagne, how her 2-year-old babies sing on her new album, how overhead lighting is not favourable, her "insecurity", and refers to the radio host as a "natural beauty" so, clearly, she's still a bit bats.
The one thing she does say which seems to ring true however is how torturous it was workig with Nicki Minaj on American Idol. To be fair, it did look hellish, but that's mostly because American Idol has had its day. Yes, Randy, every "dawg" has it's day and yours is well and truly finito.
Now, the below video is 16 minutes looooooong, so if you want to go straight to the (presumed) Minaj bashing, it's around the 10 minute mark. For those of you unable to watch veedjo's in work, here's what she says:
"I hated it. I was led to believe - I was the first person signed on. Heaven forbid I look like I’m saying something negative, but honestly I thought it was going to be a three-person panel. They gave me a nice dangling monetary moment. I was like, okay, Randy Jackson will be there, I’ve known him forever, he used to play base for me. This isn’t a big deal. This will be nothing. But it wasn’t that. It was like hell. It was like going to work every day in hell with Satan.... Ah no, I'm just playing (backpeddling furiously)."
All the host could manage was a "Really?!" instead of a crucial "Why, tell us more?! Did she have seven serpent tongues flying from her mouth?!!", so Mariah got to back-peddle furiously, opting instead to talk about the contestants and how the choice wasn't based on talent, more on "political reasons", which aren't surprising on "that kind of TV show." And that's the reason why she's not going back to the show next season (starting stateside on January 15th, if yisser interested).
Funnily enough, producers are returning to the three-person panel of Keith Urban, Harry Connick Jr. and Jennifer Lopez as judges - that's assuming Randy Jackson isn't involved... There was no mention of him in the line up, but he'll manage to wangle his way in some how. Himself and Louis Walsh, always the last people to leave the party.
