Mariah Carey Compares ‘American Idol’ With Nicki Minaj To Going To Work In Hell With Satan

Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey may not be American Idol judges anymore, but that doesn’t mean their beef can’t continue. Today, video surfaced online of Carey stopping by Hot 97 for an interview with Angie Martinez and it appears that Carey still hasn’t recovered from the experience. When asked about her co-hosting duties, the singer doesn’t mince words. “I hated it,” she says.

The brief interview clip finds Carey explaining the situation a little more, going into detail about how at first she thought she was going to be part of a three person panel—presumably without Minaj—but that the plan soon changed. And not for the better, according to her. “It was like hell going to work every day in hell with Satan,” Carey says at one point. “I’m just playing. It didn’t affect me that much.”

This isn’t the first time Minaj and Carey butted heads. Their American Idol tenure was littered with verbal confrontations and tension. Check out the clip of the interview above.
