Mariah Carey is upset that "American Idol" executives are negotiating with another pop singer, TMZ.com reports. The show’s talks with Nicki Minaj reportedly have angered Carey, who apparently thought she would be the only woman on the judge’s panel.
Carey reportedly hung up the phone when she was told Minaj is now the top candidate. Because it’s unclear whether Randy Jackson will return, there may also be another spot to fill on the judge’s panel.
Some executives think it would be a mistake for the panel to feature two women and only one man, so it’s possible a fourth judge will be added to include another man, the story adds.
