Mariah Carey Talks Reality Show 'Mariah's World,' Divorce from Nick Cannon & Prince in 'Complex'
The eight-part series will follow her on her upcoming European tour and also chronicle her personal life, including wedding plans to her Australian business manager fiancé James Packer. The series also will feature her children, 5-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with ex-husband Nick Cannon. But she admitted that the amount of access to her children is still a point of discussion with Cannon.
"Here’s the thing: They could have their own show because that’s how funny they are," said Carey, referring to her children. "I just have to figure it out -- with Nick -- how much they’re in the show. They’re in my life. We’ll see. I think it should be sparing."
Carey was coy when one critic asked if Cannon, who hosts NBC's America's Got Talent, would also be in the show. "I can’t speak for [him]. He’s his own person. He’s cool about coming around the show."

"So he will be in the show?" the critic pressed.
"Well, I said he came around, I don’t know what makes the final cut," she said to uproarious reaction from the Champagne-plied journalists.
"I’m sorry, was that rude in some way? I’m so not trying to slay anybody.”
Carey was also asked what she learned during her time as a judge on American Idol. And that question she completely dodged: "Oh, it was the most abusive experience," she said, lifting her glass. "By the way you’ve just driven me to drink."
