Mariah Carey: “Randy Jackson Is My New Manager”

Published: Saturday 10th Dec 2011 by David

 

Last month, That Grape Juice reported that Pop icon Mariah Carey had called upon long time producer/ American Idol judge Randy Jackson to serve as her new manager.

Now, this report has been confirmed by the singer herself, during an interview with Matty & Maude on Australia’s ‘Hot 30 Countdown.

 

Listen below…

Hit the 3:19 mark.

It’s pretty fair to say that this might be one of the best moves Mariah has made to date.

Because quite simply, if she and Randy are able to one up the magic they have created in the past, we are all in for a treat.

Here’s to hoping Jackson has a carefully structured campaign ready for 2012 to ensure  she bests the likes of Leona Lewis, Brandy and Christina Aguilera who all gearing up to release LP’s around the same time.

Well done.

    I think this could be good for Mariah, such a huge fan but this could also go so wrong, hope they play their cards right make some amazing music.

    So Hope Randy as her manager re ingiroates her career she’s to much of an icon to let the business determine her success

    managing is a full time job .Managing Mariah is a huge full time job. Randy has a huge gig. She needs someone who can focus on her

    finally!!!
    I hope something will change now, but as a true mariah fan, I will stay sceptic before I see a new number 1….

    Its great news!!!!! This is so very positive for her career! Mariah on top of the world!!!!!!

    This will backfire in her face. Randy is the least paid on AI. He only gets about 3 million while everyone else is making 3 times that. How is he going to get mariah jobs and payments. The dude is a joke. There goes Mariah’s career once again.

    I adore Mariah. The important thing will be the music. And Mariah ususally delivers musically so I CAN´T wait

    You know what would be super dope!! if he could get her a spot as a judge for the upcoming season of idol in January , although I think they already shot the audition process she could join when the live performances start..even if just for a few weeks or so as a guest if not permanent. This would be awesome, her and J.Lo on the same show after years of alleged beef…that alone would bring in crazy ratings and up the level for idol now that Xfactor and The Voice are strong competitors and of course it would give Mariah major promo and camera time for that new album!! Randy needs to make this happen

    THIS IS LAME. RANDY JACKSON CANT MANAGE ANYONE. HE WAS ABOUT TO BE FIRED FROM IDOL IF NOT FOR HIS IRONCLAD CONTRACT. HE’S AN OK PRODUCER BUT AS A MANAGER THIS IS AN #EPICFAIL. ALSO, THIS NEGATES F****** FROM APPEARING ON XFACTOR ANYTIME SOON SINCE FAT JACKSON WORKS FOR IDOL. SIMON KEPT INSINUATING FAT-RIAH WAS GONNA HAVE SOME SORT OF ROLE ON XFACTOR. NOT GONNA HAPPEN NOW… FAT-RIAH IS DONE! JUST SEAL THE DEAL. BA-BYYYYEEE!!

  14. MRDIVABITCH December 10, 2011

    Randy is just a bass player who got lucky, how the f*** is he gonna manage a massive super star like Mariah Carey?

  15. jesse lopez December 11, 2011

    @jojo
    mariah and jlo on idol would explode heads eveywhere! I hope it happens.

    Mariah who ? She has even lost her vocals, and no one is waiting for her, she’s no body. It’s sad that she could be only a singer, now she seems to have no career, the biggest comeback next year goes to Madonna.

    Madonna’s coming back b******…;)

    Mariah is no body and she doesn’t nothing to share or give for the audience or the next generation, she can’t even dress well, she can’t even have a good presence on stage, she has nothing to show.

    Mariah is a big fail.

    Madonnas is a w**** !
