Mariah Carey Talks Britney Spears; Slams ‘X Factor USA’?

mariah carey 7 e1337106005820 Mariah Carey Talks Britney Spears; Slams X Factor USA?

Much like nemesis Christina Aguilera, diva Mariah Carey is a renown shade-dispenser. Hence, it was little surprise when the 42 year old offered up an “interesting” response when probed on Britney Spears signing up as an X Factor USA judge.

Fling open those curtains because Mimi throwing that dark stuff far and wide. Her interview with Extra after the jump…

As one the few “diva originales” left in the industry, we love Mimi at her most vocal. After all, she’s earned the right to be. However,  one has to wonder if her negative stance on the show stems from actually being in the running to serve a judge during its first season – something her pregnancy pumped the brakes on. I mean, back then, she was more than content to let the rumour-mill crank into overdrive and her name be showered with more attention than her last two projects combined. And yet now it’s beneath her?

In any case, forget a tour; we’re amped to see what she’s been cooking up in the studio! Bring on that album!

Your thoughts?

    See now. This is not shade Mariah just tell it like it is Simon had a chance in hell of getting her on there, especially after seeing the number he did on Kelly, Nichole and (his good friend) Paula.

    accusation of shade…waaay overblown. she was a little dismissive but i don’t blame her. the media uses every opportunity to hype britney by throwing her in the faces of artists with real talent.

    in an interview with cnn’s piers morgan carson daley from ‘the voice’ came to discuss ‘the voice’ and couldn’t even escape a britney x factor plug.

    it was better mariah handled it the way she did and avoid going for the way she really, no doubt, feels about “sweet” but totally talentless britney.

    kudos to you mariah for holding back.

    what i really appreciate about mariah carey s that she is a f*****’ real person , like she always say IT without Filtration , without trying being diplomatic.

    i won’t tolerate anything less than the great ” the emancipation of MIMI” of her tho. her next album should be as sophisticated as the one.

    Idiotic Sam must’ve missed when she said Britney’s a good/nice person. Here he goes grasping again. More attention than her last two projects? You mean that last two projects that had a hit single, and outsold your favorites album wich barely scrapped the 300k mark?… One of those albums being a holiday album… Try again Sam.

    First of all Sam Mimi’s name was tossed around more for Simon’s opposed to hers. Nick said countless times on his radio show that she and Simon discussed the idea but Mariah was not doing the judging job because it wasn’t her thing. As for the dig at her last two projects please with the corny sarcasm its unnecessary cause ur fave K Rowland still couldn’t sale the penthouse with one hit. At least after 2 decades+ Mimi can still sale a house let’s see Kelly’s status after 2 decades+ other then being Bee’s shadow.

    Mariah had no desire to be on the X Factor. If she did, she would have said F it, and signed the contract.

    Musical reality shows are waaaay beneath Mariah.

    Those type of shows are for hasbeens, or people trying to revive their career. This is why I’m disappointed in Britney. A listers don’t involve themselves in reality shows.

    Simon is using Brit for ratings, and not because she’s talented.

    Btw, Sam. We all know if this was one of your faves who made that same comment, or worse, you would be laughing and praising it. You stay shading Mariah because she’s one of the last divas standing or your faves will never be on her level, and that includes vocally.

    And I can’t believe you compared Mariah to Christina. Christina is flat out nasty, and many of her peers can’t stand her. Just look at that s*** betweem her, Adam Levine and the contestants. Everybody and their mama has stated what a b**** Christina is. You can’t compare Mariah to that. Christina has no personality and sense of humor. And people say Mariah is a diva b****. Pfftt.

    Dayuuuuuuum lol I know 15m is a small fig for Mariah Carey’s talent. But U R just sitting there. The blunder was when the offer instead went to of all people Brittney. Lol Hilar. I mean we know Klodeon doing good but that 15M could’ve been play money IJS. These shows would be shot if it were up to me cuz Usher would b a judge lol. She would be just sitting there.

    Okay so listen up. As a real Mariah fan and as someone who knows her personally. Mariah is PISSED a X Factor and/or Simon Cowell. She was in the running for X Factor but during discussions Mariah was dismissed and Britney was put into the forefront.

    You love posting Mariah’s age huh? On every post though…..interesting

    I love Mimi and she answered honestly. You mentioned her last two albums didn’t garner alot of attention. Mariah has been in the game over T W E N T Y
    years and the fact that she is still expected to sell a gazillion albums every time she drops a album is a true testament to how relevant she still is. Cant wait 4 the new music!!!

    Keep it cute Dry Ice…

    Mariah NEVER wanted the job. Simon begged and went on every tv show u can think of pleading and telling the world he wanted Mariah on the show.

    Poor Britney, did you see her in the press conference with Simon and them?? She was so nervous she was biting her nails until they bled. Also she could barely talk. Kept stuttering and sounding like a cigarette smoker.

    I’m curious, did the writer of this article even bother to see what Mariah’s legendary shade-throwing looks like? Because I have and girl, that ain’t it.

    This is just a poor attempt to compare two successful female artists to each other.
