For promotional purposes, they were all smiles. But everyone knew Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj didn't like each other. In spring, both singers announced they won't be returning for a new season, and they've been replaced by Harry Connick Jr. and Jennifer Lopez. In an interview for Hot 97 radio, Mariah confessed that it wasn't the best job in the world for her: “Honestly, I hated it. Here's what it was. I was the first person who signed on… I thought it was going to be a three-person panel. They gave me a nice… monetary moment, and I was just like, 'Okay, Randy Jackson will be there; I've known him forever. He used to play bass for me. Like, this isn't a big deal. This will be nothing. But it wasn't that. It was like going to work every day in hell with Satan.” Could we go ahead and assume it was Nicki Minaj that conjured all hell for Mariah? Because it would be hard to believe it was Keith Urban… Around the same they announced not returning for season 13, Nicki Minaj took to Twitter to speak her mind about Mariah. And it wasn't pretty.

However, Mariah made sure it she doesn't make it sound so bad: “Nah, I'm just playing. It didn't affect me that much,” she added afterwords. She also mentioned she loved the contestants, many of whom were very talented in her view. Mariah just releases a single, “The Art of Letting Go,” which you can listen to here.

7. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West went as a siren and sailor last year, which gave them a chance to be themselves: her in a blond wig and form hugging skirt, him in a classic striped top and white pants, with red loafers (he was probably dying to wear that outfit anyway…).

Mariah Carey wears her diva-appropriate outfit – a waist fitted black trench coat, Miu Miu peep toes, and Ralph Lauren sunglasses. The singer is working on a new studio album, and she revealed that she’s excited and anxious to launch her new material as soon as possible. “I’m working really hard. Randy, he hasn’t even been in the studio in like months to hear what I have. He doesn’t know every detail of this because I’ve been working with a bunch of people in secret locations,” she said. Apparently, this isn’t a new project – producer Bryan-Michael Cox says: “She was committed to making it before she got pregnant. Then she got pregnant and she took the time off.” On March 8, the video for “Almost Home” will be out, marking the release of the movie Oz The Great and Powerful and being part of its soundtrack.

Mariah Carey is one for funky eyewear, and Jimmy Choo sunglasses are just to her taste! The singer isn’t covering magazines as much as she once did, so seeing her on The Hollywood Reporter is quite a pleasure! Although she does share the cover with all her American Idol co-judges, including Nicki Minaj, who we all know isn’t her best friend. Carey tells the magazine about how she decided to do this show: “I was on the fence about the whole thing. I got approached by all the shows. [Husband Nick Cannon] said I should do it because it’s the top, it’s the cream of the crop. And I felt like, ‘Do the show that’s produced massive stars who have had major careers.’” Minaj, on the other hand, doesn’t feel like it’s 100% in her benefit to do something so mainstream: “[There's] a judgmental culture in hip-hop…sometimes you are afraid of being too famous because it’s almost, like, is that even cool? Being that accessible, someone you see on TV every week? I never pictured myself as that type of person. I’m still surprised that I decided to do it,” she said.

Shocking news from the Carey-Cannon family! Not as much shocking, as unusual to reveal to the press… Mariah Carey’s husband, Nick Cannon was on the radio at The Howard Stern and he told the listeners just how much he loves his wife’s music. So much, that they listen to it while making love, and sometimes… she’s not even there! The 90s hit song “Hero” is a favorite. “”Absolutely. When she’s not there. Why Not,” he said.  “I don’t light candles but sometimes you’ve got to be reminded what’s at home.” Cannon also revealed that he and Carey become more intimate after the birth of their twins (Monroe and Moroccan), who are now 19 months old. Apparently, between their first date and their wedding, the two didn’t consummate the relationship, with Cannon saying that for him it was enough: it was Mariah Carey!
