That screaming you heard yesterday was Mariah Carey yelling at Nick Cannon and then every person who came within five feet of her. Agents and managers were summoned and Mariah is thisclose to backing out of her American Idol deal. If Nicki Minaj joins American Idol then you are going to see Mariah have a serious vocal cord issue which will cost her the ability to speak. Mariah doesn't want anyone younger or more diva-ish than her. Mariah also was told that she would be the only woman on the panel. When I first heard the news that Nicki was going to be a judge, I didn't believe it and I will tell you why. Because executives at networks think America is racist. There I said it. No one else might say it, but I am saying it. Randy Jackson is black. Nicki Minaj is black and Mariah Carey is considered black by many people, especially considering she is married to a black man. I guarantee you the first question executives asked when someone brought up the name Nicki Minaj is something about how can we have three black people judging white people on national television. I know they did. I welcome three judges of color, whatever color they might be. It is time to bust the stereotypes. Do you know that until about ten years ago, you would never hear two women back to back on the radio? Yep. Think about all the other shows with judges and tell me how many have judges who are all of color. No other show. It just is not done. If the show crashes and burns, the executives will blame it on the racial composition of the judges. They will not consider that perhaps Mariah and Nicki was not the best combination and will not get along for even one second. I also don't understand why everyone thinks Randy wants to leave. Would you ever want to leave a job that paid that much for so little work? So why would Randy?
