Mariah Carey Speaks On American Idol Experience

Mariah Carey didn't have a good time on American Idol, telling Angie Martinez (via Hot 97) that the experience was "like going to work everyday in hell with Satan."

"Honestly, I thought it was gonna be a three-person panel," she said regarding the presence of Nicki Minaj. "Nah, I'm just playing. It didn't affect me that much. I was disappointed," she added.

Carey recently dropped "The Art of Letting Go," the third single from her upcoming album of the same name, earlier this week.

A vid for the cut, which features the album's cover image, was posted by Carey to her Facebook page.

"This is such a personal record to me. I wrote the lyrics so that anyone and everyone could relate to them and hopefully release anything that they need to let go of that's holding them back or bringing them down. Thank you for sharing this experience with me!" said Mimi in the post.
