Mariah Carey: Too Expensive For American Idol?
Posted by Adam
MARIAH Carey is too expensive for American Idol.
The singer is rumored to be in talks to become a judge on the TV talent show, but her husband Nick Cannon thinks she would cost show chiefs much more than the salaries paid departing panelists Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler.
“I don’t know if they can afford Mariah Carey. That’s a lot of money. If they gave J-Lo $20 million, they might have to double that!” Nick told TMZ.
Recent reports claimed Carey is in serious talks about joining the TV talent show’s judging panel.
“[Show producers] think they need to freshen everything up now,” dished one insider.
“They are in serious talks with Mariah and it’s very close to being a done deal. And they will move Randy into a more mentoring role.”
