Mariah Carey created a media stir recently when the Pop diva made some cryptic comments about her time as a judge on American Idol. Speaking with Angie Martinez the “Fantasy” singer said the experience “was like going to work everyday in hell with Satan.”
The comments were suspected to be referring to fellow former AI judge Nicki Minaj. The two performers had a really public feud that played on the reality show. Carey’s husband Nick Cannon revealed to Access Hollywood that he does not believe the Satan remark was aimed at Minaj or any of the other judges.
“I don’t think her comment was about anyone on the panel,” said Cannon. “I don’t think she was speaking directly about [Nicki Minaj]. I think she was talking about the situation in general.”
Given that Mariah’s comment was in response to Angie’s question about how it was working on American Idol with all the drama between she and Nicki, it was crystal clear who she was referring to. Nicki’s goon squad must have gotten to the Cannon-Carey house and put them in check.
Nice try though, Nick.
