Mariah sofaMariah Carey's working really hard on her new album and wants it out "ASAP", if that's okay with everyone.

"I'm really working hard," the 'Triumphant (Get 'Em)' hitmaker told Ryan Seacrest (as quoted here).

She also 'revealed' that her longtime col­lab­or­ator and American Idol workmate Randy Jackson has no idea what's been going on as she's been doing some of it in secret.

"Randy, he hasn't even been in the studio in like months to hear what I have. He doesn't know every detail of this because I've been working with a bunch of people in secret locations."

Either that or Randy's just got better things to be getting on with.
