Mariah Carey could not give two shits about who's judging what on US X Factor.
Talking to Extra prior to the announcement of Britney Spears' new job Mariah was asked what she thought of it all, and responded: "You think I focus on that kind of stuff? Have we met? I mean I love her [Britney], honestly, I think she's a very nice person, but I don't care who is going on what show, as long as it's not me."
Quickly changing the subject the interviewer then asks about rumours she [Mariah] was going on tour soon.
"Darling, I've got to finish my album," was the reply, complete with a brilliantly diva-esque hand wave.
