Mariah Carey's new single may be titled "The Art of Letting Go," but apparently she's still holding on to some residual bitterness when it comes to her short-lived "American Idol" days — since she basically just went on the radio and called her former Season 12 co-star Nicki Minaj the devil.
At least, we can assume she meant Nicki Minaj. Mariah wouldn't ever say such nasty things about sweet, sweet Keith Urban, would she?
So, in a frank new interview with Hot 97 DJ Angie Martinez (who, ironically, was hired to be a judge on "Idol" Season 2, but quit after a few days), Mimi made it very clear that she's delighted to be emancipated from her old television gig. "Honestly, I hated it," she told Angie, when asked about "Idol."
"I thought it was going to be a three-person panel. They gave me a nice dangling monetary moment. [Editor's note: an $18 million salary for one season!] And I was like, 'OK, Randy Jackson will be there, and I've known him forever.' He used to play bass for me. [Editor's note: Randy also managed Mariah at the time.] But it wasn't that. It was like going to work every day in Hell with Satan," Mariah said with a devilish laugh.
