Working with Nicki Minaj still leaves in a bitter taste in Mariah Carey’s mouth, months after the show has ended.
Mariah and Minaj has been long rumored to be feuding with each other but things grew intense when the two assumed judging duties on American Idol.
Mariah didn’t bite her tongue one bit when she recalled her stint on American Idol in an interview with Hot 97, saying that working with Nicki was like working with Satan.
“It was like going to work every day in hell with Satan,” she said.
She stopped short of naming any devil (or Minaj) in particular. “Nah, I’m just playing. It didn’t affect me that much. I was disappointed.”
She wasn’t all negative.
“I loved the contestants,” she said. “Some of them were so good and also really good people, you could tell, it was disappointing that…for political reasons they would not put people through.”
