Mariah Carey opened up to the  ‘Televsion Critics Association’ about her experience with ‘American Idol’ calling it “abusive.”


The singer appeared on stage with shirtless men all around her as she drank.

She was promoting her TV show ‘Mariah’s World’ set to air in December.

“I don’t consider it reality… I haven’t been on tour in Europe in about 10 years. So I thought, let’s just show the behind-the-scenes, what it really takes to do a tour… and mainly, watch how the music evolves, watch the process, and watch how the different personalities clash.”

If the show is as dramatic as her TCA entrance, we will be watching.
