I know this is old news, but just for the record, Mariah Carey is supposedly earning the previous rumored number of $18 million. That would make her the highest paid reality TV judge. I wonder what J.Lo is thinking right now??? Hell, I wonder what Britney thinks? She only makes $16 million, and from what I remember negotiations were difficult with her. I wonder if it’s because she doesn’t like to wear shoes?
A source told US Weekly, “Mariah is getting paid $18 million with a one-year option to do Idol, making her the highest paid judge on any music competition show.”
Mariah said in a statement, ”I’m currently in the studio working on my new album and its first single, ‘Triumphant,’ which will be out early next month. I can’t wait to channel my creative energy as a part of this show which is a massive global phenomenon.”
Hopefully her presence will help American Idol come back up a little, but at this point it’s going to be an uphill battle.
