If “American Idol” bosses want Mariah Carey as their next judge, they will have to pay her twice the amount they pay Jennifer Lopez, says the former’s husband Nick Cannon.
“I don’t know if they can afford Mariah Carey. That’s a lot of money. If they gave JLo $20 million, they might have to double that! You never know, it’s one of things, she’s got an album coming out so there’s promotional stuff,” tmz.com quoted Cannon as saying.
Asked if talks are on to pitch in Carey, the 31-year-old actor answered diplomatically, saying: “Everybody wants to talk to her.”
