Mariah Carey Tweets Official Exit from “American Idol”


Mariah Carey has Tweeted her exit from Idol. And promoted the new video for her single “#Beautiful” which features Miguel inserting the word “f—in'” before “beautiful” as an adverb. What I do know apart from this cryptic message: Mariah’s new album was played for Universal Music execs in London this week, and they liked what they heard. The album is due in the next month or less, as Mariah prepares to perform at the Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks show. In August Mariah appears in the opening segment of Lee Daniels’ The Butler with Vanessa Redgrave.
