    What a diva wants, a diva gets. PEOPLE reports that sour puss Simon Cowell is working tirelessly to create a role for diva Maria Carey on his new talent reality competition series The X Factor. Cowell said that Carey has asked to be a part of the show and Cowell will concede, since you do not turn Mariah Carey down.

    "You can't say no to Mariah," Cowell, 51, told the publication, admitting that Carey has expressed that she wants to be involved since day one. "We have to find a role for her. I'm a huge fan of hers – not just as an artist, but as a person, and I love her to death."

    There were rumors that Carey would be a judge when Cowell was assembling that panel, but with Carey pregnant with twins, it never materialized. Given Carey's busy schedule with two infants at home, her schedule probably would not permit her to be a full-time judge, but perhaps she can be a mentor on the show, in a reduced capacity?

    What role should Simon Cowell create for Mariah Carey on The X Factor? What could Carey do?
