Mariah Carey drops Randy Jackson as manager
Randy Jackson is no longer managing Mariah Carey, reports THR. I’m not so sure about this one. Clearly Randy has made almost irreparable damage to Mariah’s career by convincing her to go on American Idol.
FOX is now positioning their PR force to blame the judges for this year’s ratings collapse which isn’t good for any comeback Mariah hopes to get out of the show (just like JLo).
Randy of course should not return to the show. We no longer need a “glue” to connect the past to the present. The show is no longer what it used to be and it never will. Time for a fresh start not only with the judges, but with everything.
It’s been described as an “experiment,” a “rebound” and “a little bit of a joke,” but alas, Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson are going back to being just friends.
The veteran American Idol judge is no longer co-managing Carey, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. In November 2011, THR first reported that Jackson and Irving Azoff were representing the singer.
“Randy was more of an in-between guy,” says a source close to the situation. “She was looking for new management and he was like a temporary fix.”
