Mariah Carey: “American Idol” Has Their Own Diva

By: Amanda Crum - July 24, 2012

I was in middle school when Mariah Carey broke onto the music scene, so I grew up with her music. If you’re of a certain age, Mariah was part of your youth in a way that makes you sing along to “Dream Lover” if it comes on the radio, whether you’re a lifelong female fan or a big, burly truck driver. You can’t help it.

But one thing we can’t forget about the songstress is that she’s famously difficult to work with and has a history of crazy behavior; also, she’s kiiiind of a diva. Just a little.

So in honor of her new job as judge on “American Idol”, I thought I’d list some of the crazier things she’s done here, because I’m certainly anticipating good times when the new season starts up.

–As seen on her episode of “MTV’s Cribs”, Mariah has a couch in her kitchen, because she prefers never to sit up if at all possible.


–She has handlers and assistants who do everything from dress her to take her chewed-up gum to dispose of when she’s done with it.


–Remember her bizarre appearance on MTV’s TRL?

–“Glitter”. That is all.


–And finally, the rest of her “Cribs” episode, in which she shows us her “lingerie closet”, takes a bath, and changes outfits 12 times.

    Mariah Carey is the perfect replacement for Jennifer Lopez and I think she will do a better job. She’s a real American Idol and she’s been in the business for a long time. I can’t wait to watch her in the first episode of season 12 and see how she does. This is one of my favorite shows on primetime and now I can enjoy it commercial free. I was excited about the Auto Hop feature which will enhance my TV experience. I don’t like having to skip all the commercials manually, and then have to skip back when I pass part of the show. One of my coworkers at Dish showed me how Auto Hop feature skips right over commercials with the touch of a button. This works great, since it’s about a day or two before I watch these recordings after they air. Having this new feature I won’t drain my batteries in my remote as fast and I can spend more time on my shows.
