MARIAH Carey is in the driving seat.
Sources say the superstar diva is determined to make her mark on the upcoming season of American Idol — and it’s already ruffling a few feathers.
The singer, 42, has suggested to stylists that it might be an idea to update host Ryan Seacrest‘s look, suggesting that maybe he should dye his hair a funky color and appear more casually-dressed, to get a more “youthful and trendy” feel to the show, according to RadarOnline.
“No one would even dare to bring up the subject with Ryan, or feels that it is needed,” a source said.
“Ryan, and everyone, is very pleased with his style and look. It is totally the right feel and fit for Idol.
“Mariah mentioned some kind of bizarre ideas for re-styling Ryan, in terms of making him appeal to a younger audience. She said she feels that sometimes he appears far too serious and that he needs to lighten up a bit.
“She has a very definite sense of style and loves to leave her stamp — this likely won’t be the first or last we will hear on the subject!”
Mariah has already been clashing with fellow judge, Nicki Minaj.
“You are looking at two huge stars with the associated giant egos that go along with that!” said the source. “I don’t see any way these two won’t clash!
“I think viewers can safely expect fireworks when the show goes live, and that’s just music to the producers’ ears — this is going to be ratings gold!”
