We'd say that Nick Cannon is a DEFINITE upgrade!

Before Mariah Carey's love story with Nick began, Mariah was married to Tommy Mottola… and we all know how that worked out.

And now, in his effort to make his book a bestseller, the man who credits himself for Mariah's success has admitted that he was obsessive and controlling with the world famous diva!

During an interview on Today about his book Hitmaker: The Man and His Music, Tommy said:

Mariah Carey's Allegedly Abusive Ex-Husband Claims Responsibility For Her Success In New Memoir!

mariah-carey-ex-husband-tommy-mottola-memoir-hitmaker-denies-abuse

Isn't it just always the SAME story from guys like these?

Mariah Carey may be a happily married of two with her husband Nick Cannon now, but back when her career was just starting out at the age of 23, she was trapped in a marriage to Tommy Mottola, from whom she later revealed to be mentally and emotionally abusive to her throughout their four years together!

However, in his new memoir Hitmaker, the record executive 20 years her senior gives an entirely different account of the way in which he treated his wife, and instead asserts that his demands of her are the SOLE reason she's as big an icon as she is today!

He writes:

Her Minajesty, Too?! Nicki Being Considered For Judging Position On X Factor!

nicki-minaj-considered-for-judging-position-on-x-factor

Wow! We could get behind this!

While Former Island Def Jam Music Group chairman L.A. Reid is the only confirmed judge so far for the upcoming US edition of Simon Cowell's X Factor, sources close to production have revealed that none other than Miz Nicki Minaj herself is in negotiations to join the panel!

The insider explains:

"Simon thinks Nicki is fantastic. She's sassy, she looks great and she has bags of personality. Nicki has a large following and she fits well with the ethos of the show, which plans to usher in a new generation of musical talent. 'X Factor' is aiming for a younger audience. Those aged 12 and over can audition, and [the English version has] launched successful artists from other genres of music than pop. This isn't a done deal yet, but Nicki would be great for the show. She fits the ideal that 'X Factor' will be exciting, vibrant and different. And the show would also be great for her career."

Definitely! Our only concern is that she is still a relatively new artist…but we think with the success of her debut album, Pink Friday, and her amazing personality, she should have NO problem fitting right in!

But who knows? We're still hearing that Nicole Scherzinger, Chezza, and Tommy Mottola are still in the running - not to mention Little J and Enrique as potential hosts - so we doubt we'll have anything else confirmed until the official announcement is made!

And let's hope that it's SOON! We're tired of being left in the dark!

What do U think?? Who should comprise the judges panel on the US X Factor??

Simon Cowell Wants Record Exec Tommy Mottola For US X Factor

simon cowell wants tommy mottola for x factor us

Looks like Simon may have found a new judge for the US X Factor.

Yesterday, we learned that Cheryl Cole would NOT be getting a judge position on the show, so it comes as no surprise that Fox is now announcing that American record exec Tommy Mottola is up for a judging position.

Here's what a source at Fox had to say about it:

"Simon and Tommy have known each other for years since their days at Sony and Simon has wanted to get Tommy on board one of his shows for a long time."

"They get on extremely well and this could be the moment where they finally get on screen together. Tommy’s from the Bronx in New York, he’s tough talking, doesn’t pull any punches and will make great TV."

Cowell isn't expected to make an official announcement about US X Factor judges until next month, but it definitely seems like Mottola will be on board.

What do U think of Tommy Mottola as a judge? Who would U like to see as a judge on the show?
