    Mariah Carey did not have a good experience during her single season as an American Idol judge in 2013. In an interview with Hot 97's Angie Martinez, Carey likened the job to hell and said it was like working with Satan.

    Since she famously feuded with Nicki Minaj, it seems like those statements are a diss on the rapper. Come, Mimi! Can't you let it go and smooch and makeup with the queen of rap?

    Carey also said she thought it was just going to be a three-person panel. Maybe that's why things were so fraught with tension during last season.

    Watch the diva's Hot 97 chat with Angie Martinez below.
