Mariah Carey Disses Britney Spears On 'X Factor' Gig

We can’t believe how rude Mariah Carey was when asked about her thoughts on Britney Spears judging ‘The X Factor’! Do yo think she’s bitter?

Mariah Carey has turned into the Green-Eyed Monster when it comes to Britney Spears landing a $15 million contract to judge The X Factor — the same gig for which Mariah was up just last year.

“You think I focus on that stuff? Have we met?” the 42-year-old mega star told EXTRA, somewhat bitterly, at a Project Canvas event in New York May 14.

After realizing her comment was less than friendly, Mariah recanted, adding, “I love her, honestly, I think she’s a very nice person, but I don’t care who’s going on that show – as long as it’s not me.”

Originally, Simon Cowell was reportedly in talks with Mariah to judge. However, the deal never came to fruition and now Britney, 30, is the show’s new shining star.

Do YOU think Mariah is bitter about what happened, or is she just being her usual diva self?

LMFAO Mariah is the best!! Stop asking singers what they think about non ningers… LOL look at John Legend. MC even had to say she’s a nice PERSON… “Her tour or my tour?” was pure gold.

Didn’t read the story but MY GOD Britney looks so old. Mariah is about 12 years older and wow… that is so sad. Black people usually age better than whites anyway; but Britney’s hard living did a number on her looks. I remember a time that girl was drop dead gorgeous. Mariah has got better looking with age; because she was fuggly when she first came out.

Mariah sounded very bitter to me. I’m actually kind of excited for the new season of X-factor and I’m also glad to know that Britney will be joining the judge panel. I think Britney will be great, not so sure about Demi… Too young and annoying in my opinion.

Leave it to Hollywood Life for shoddy reporting. Listen to the clip again. Mariah said she doesn’t focus on shows like X-Factor, meaning she’s not interested in them. She’s more annoyed that the interviewer who is so uninformed (e.g. He brings up a phantom upcoming tour). The girl has to release a new album before she goes out on a tour!
