Mariah Carey flips out about Nicki Minaj joining American Idol

Mariah Carey flips out about Nicki Minaj joining <i>American Idol</i>
Diva vs diva: Is American Idol big enough for Mariah and Nicki?
Let it be known, there is only room for one female diva on the American Idol judging panel.

Mariah Carey made it blatantly clear she is not willing to sit alongside Nicki Minaj for season 12 of the show, reportedly hanging up the phone on producers when she was told Nicki is going to join her on the judging panel.

Idol sources told TMZ 42-year-old Mariah is peeved for two reasons: one, she was apparently led to believe she would be the only female judge and two, she is worried about looking bad next to 29-year-old Nicki.

As we previously reported, Nicki is 100 percent on board to join the show so Mariah may well have to suck it up.

We reckon the $18 million contract she has signed to do the show more than makes up for possibly (but probably not!) being outdone by Nicki.

Speaking of divas, Hollywood’s biggest ego Kanye West is rumoured to be “in talks” with Idol producers to sit on the judging panel.

Apparently he’s still “on the fence”, with TMZ reporting Kim Kardashian’s beau will only consider the gig if he gets the same salary as Mariah.

This is fast becoming one very expensive Idol series — let’s hope the ratings make up for it.
