Mariah Carey Calls 'American Idol' Fake and 'Worst Experience Of My Life'

Mariah Carey (photosMariah Carey photos) certainly isn't looking back fondly on her time on 'American Idol'.

Carey, who was a judge alongside Randy Jackson, Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj (photosNicki Minaj photos) in Season 12, says the show is "so boring and so fake."

In an interview with Australia's KIIS FM, Carey said producers were always prompting judges about feedback to give the contestants.

"It's so boring and so fake," she said. "I'm sorry, when I say it's fake, I mean you have to make up things to say about people."

"Half the time, the performances are good, you just want to be like, 'It was good.' You just feel like ending it there, like, 'It's really good.'"

Asked whether she would be involved in the show's upcoming fifteenth and final season, Carey replied: "Absolutely not. That was the worst experience of my life. I would never want to be involved in it again."

She also implied that producers never wanted her and fellow judge Nicki Minaj to get along.

"I'm not gonna get into what it was, but let's just say I don't think they had any intentions for us to have a good experience doing that show... pinning two females against each other wasn't cool."

"It should've been about the contestants instead of being about some non-existent feud that turned into more ridiculousness and I would never want to be involved with it again. But everybody else can like it!"
