Tell us how you really feel, Mariah Carey!

In a recent radio interview, the pop diva sat down with Australian KIIS FM hosts Kyle and Jackie O to promote her new album #1 to Infinity – and also threw some shade at her old gig as judge on American Idol!

Mimi gave a scathing review of her time spent on the recently canceled singing competition, dubbing it "so boring and so fake." Ouch!

It seems Kelly Clarkson is still not over her flop, From Justin To Kelly.

In a recent interview, the Heartbeat Song singer was asked if she would want to burn all copies of the modern musical.

She quipped:

"No, I think I would have to own it first. But that is something I will look into."

LOLz! Apparently, she has no interest in ever seeing the movie again — and does NOT want her daughter, River Rose, to see it either.

She shared:

"I have a little joke with our nanny, because she told me she loves that movie. She was like, 'My roommate and I used to watch it all the time! I'm totally going to show your daughter From Justin to Kelly.' I'm like, 'I will fire you.'"

But Kelly, children learn from our mistakes? WE KID!!

However, by the time River is old enough to see the movie, American Idol will have been long off the air so we doubt she'd get the cultural significance! Tragic!
