Mariah Carey Calls 'American Idol' the Worst Experience of Her Life: 'It's So Boring & So Fake'

Mariah Carey is opening up about her days of judging American Idol and she doesn’t seem to have fond memories of it.

The 45-year-old entertainer called into the Australian radio show The Kyle and Jackie O Show where she didn’t hold back.

When asked if she would ever return to the panel, she said, “Hell no! Absolutely not! That was the worst experience of my life.”

“I don’t think they had any intentions for us to have a good experience doing that show. Pitting two females against each other wasn’t cool,” Mariah said about her and Nicki Minaj. “It should’ve been about the contestants instead of about some nonexistent feud that turned into even more ridiculousness.”

She added, “It’s so boring and so fake.You have to make up things to say about people. Half the time the performances are good. You’d just be like, ‘It was good!’”

Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer, & Gina Rodriguez Represent Comedy Actresses On 'THR'!

Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer, Gina Rodriguez, Tracee Ellis Ross, Ellie Kemper, and Kate McKinnon take the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s Comedy Actresses Roundtable Issue, out on newsstands on June 5!

In the mag, the six ladies open up about sexism in the industry, sex scenes, penis bags and why women need to stop apologizing.

Amy on sexism: “I think people hate women. I don’t think they want to hear a woman talk for too long. A lot of people project their mom yelling at them. My [career] has been about tricking people into listening. I’m not saying all men hate women, but there’s such an aggression.”

Lena on the comedy community: “I also hate how the comedy community is so defensive. People are unwilling to learn. There was a big issue a few years ago with Daniel Tosh and rape jokes. But there couldn’t be a civil conversation about it within the comedy community. I’m a sexual-assault survivor, so I would love to sit down and have a totally nonjudgmental conversation with a male comedian who makes rape jokes. But there isn’t room for that.”

Gina on racism: “I don’t believe it’s an issue of hard-core rac- ism [in Hollywood]. It’s lack of being surrounded by a culture. It’s also about what Hollywood finds financially beneficial. So when we show them shows like Jane the Virgin and Fresh Off the Boat. Show them it’s all a good investment. And it’s not about race. When you vilify it, people shut down.”

Also pictured: Lena, 29, spotted keeping it cool and casual as she runs errands on Tuesday (May 26) in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City.

Jennifer Garner Is the 'Enforcer' of Chores in the Affleck Household!

Jennifer Garner steps out to run some errands with a few companions on Thursday (May 28) in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 43-year-old actress recently spoke about getting her kids Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3, to do chores.

“We have family chores and personal chores,” Jennifer told People about being the “enforcer” in her house. “But sometimes I’m more on top of it than others. At the end of the school year, if they clear their plate and pick up after themselves and their rooms are clean and there aren’t wet towels on the floor, that’s good enough! Just today we were talking about good habits. You can’t do it all.”
