Mariah Carey isn't the kind of person who worries about burning bridges, clearly.

On Thursday, the singer told us all how she really feels about "American Idol" during an interview on the "Kyle and Jackie O” radio show in Australia -- and she didn't hold back. Carey was a judge for a single season back in 2013 along with Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban, and she made it clear she has no intention of returning to the show for its final season.

"Hell no! Absolutely not! That was the worst experience of my life," she told the radio show hosts, before alluding to an apparently show-manufactured feud between herself and Minaj.

“I’m not going to get into what it was. Let’s just say, I don’t think they had any interest in us having a good experience through that show. Pitting two females against each other wasn’t cool," Carey explained. “It should have been about the contestants instead of about some non-existent feud that turned into even more ridiculousness."

The "Infinity" singer also took issue with the show dubbing it "so boring and so fake."

"You have to make up things to say about people," she said. "Half the time the performances are good. You'd just be like, 'It was good!'"

Of course, this isn't the first time Carey has talked about her hellish experience with "American Idol." After coming off the show in 2013 she told Hot 97's Angie Martinez, "It was like going to work every day in hell with Satan."

Never change, Mariah Carey. Never change.
