Ah, the joy of hearing a major celebrity confessing that the gig she got paid (what?) ten million clams for was "hell" -- speaking here of Mariah Carey on "American Idol."

Check out  this clip from her candid -- or I presume candid -- interview with radio talk host Angie Martinez. She refers to one "satan" here, which the World Wide Web has already decided is... well, you know who.

(By the way, I thought Carey was a pretty good judge. But what do I know?)
