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!’”
