Mariah Carey

I Could Judge 'Idol' ...

BY MYSELF!

090712_carey_splash_launchMariah Carey doesn't need no stinkin' co-judges on "American Idol" ... the diva tells TMZ she can do it all by her damn self!!!! And with multiple personalities, she's just the person to pull it off.

Carey spoke to photogs on both ends of the country yesterday -- first in NYC, where the paps asked about the tension between herself and Nicki Minaj.

Carey shot back, "What tension? There's no tension!" Suuuuure.

When she arrived to L.A. we asked Carey who she would like to join her on the judge's panel, since there are still 3 open chairs.

Mariah replied, "I'd answer that, but I'm not quite sure how."

When we suggested she judge the show by herself, Carey made it clear she LOVED that idea ... saying, "Naturally ... why not?"

Think about it ... She's going to make $18 mil. If she pulls a Sybil, producers could pay each personality a more reasonable $4.5 million, and everybody wins.

while she can pull one or two Sybyls, Nicki Minaj can put eight or 9 . We would have different judges each days. all of them would suck, however.

This wacko bimbo is quickly becoming the stand in for the Goodyear blimp. If she was any good at judging anything she would not be in the "has-been" career category today.

She might have to. Who the hell would want to work with her on a daily basis? She looks like a washed up hooker, and probably smells like one too. Drunk.

I hear Nick Cannon went to Target and stocked up on DVR's. The man knows his wife is going to wear them out on a daily basis continually watching the show over and over again just to see herself.

Don't y'all remember when she had her "break down" and needed all her attention to be focused only on her? Do you remember the date? It was September 11. Boy did she make a miraculous recovery when she found out there would be a T.V. Special with stars who were performing to get donations called in. She jumped all over that!! I bet she didn't donate a dime either. She was afraid she would be forgotten. What a piece of work.

You know, I was thinking of something and I can just see it happening again. I think it was either the first of second season of America's Got Talent. Lady in her thirties, about 5 foot nothing, maybe 90lbs walked out on stage and belted out an Aria, and one of the most difficult to boot. My jaw dropped to the floor. Hassellhoff then proceeded to stand up and make a spectacle of himself and blather on for a good five minutes with the camera right in his face. By the time he was done, you had forgot her performance and didn't even realize she was still on stage. That's when I knew that it was no longer about talent, it was about the drama behind he judges table.

Did any of the people in the comments section even watch the video? She's clearly joking and just playing along for laughs. Yeesh.
