Mariah Carey Doesn’t Care About Britney Spears Joining ‘The X Factor,’ Continues Being Awesome

Mariah Carey

Yesterday, Mariah Carey was awesome because of the insanely lavish first birthday party she threw DemBabies. Today, Mariah Carey is awesome because she doesn’t give a crap about Britney Spears being on “The X Factor.”

She doesn’t mean that as an insult to Spears either. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Let us explain.

Asked by “Extra” what she thought about Britney’s new role as a judge on the singing competition alongside Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid, Carey did what she does best – gave a blatantly honest answer that simultaneously praised Spears while throwing a little shade at “Factor.”

(Man, do we love Mariah Carey. She’s the best shade-thrower in the game.)

“You think I focus on that stuff? Have we met?” the diva asked. “I love her [Britney], honestly, I think she’s a very nice person, but I don’t care who’s going on that show – as long as it’s not me.”

BOOM!

Carey was briefly linked to the role shortly after Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul were let go. Check out the action in all its glory, after the jump.
