The diva reportedly is thisclose to signing on to become a judge on the 12th season of TV’s American Idol now that Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez are off the show. Carey is said to be commanding a cool $17 million to grace the competition with her presence (which is to be shot from the most flattering angle only, thankyouverymuch). That’s a lot of cake!
Btw, Adam Lambert and Fergie are also rumored as potential new judges, while Randy Jackson is said to be vacating his seat at the judges tables to take on a mentor role at the show.

MC the Idol
Alright – what’s happening? Is anyone else a little concerned that all these big music superstars (J. Lo, Adam, Christina, Britney, MJB) are turning to the tube for gigs? No?
I can’t be standing alone, right.
Work is work, I s’ppose, but it does kinda make me wonder about just how bad the music industry is doing that the talent is looking elsewhere for a way to occupy themselves – and think about just how shoddy the landscape is looking, quality-wise (there is some craptastic, repetitive, albeit catchy s--- out there) that these A-Listers are, I dunno, uninspired.
The latest one to come with a case of Judgitis is Mariah Carey.
Yes, MC, dahlings.
Update: It’s like that, y’all: MC is doing it, for something between $12 million and $17 million.
