Mariah Carey has some American Idol advice for her friend Lionel Richie.

“I would say, don’t do it,” Carey told ET’s Carly Steel. “No, I’m only kidding. If he wants to do it, that’ll be great. I think he would be really good at it.”
Of course, the mother of two has made no secret about her own negative experience on Idol, once calling it the “worst experience” of her life.
“Yeah, they just were trying to foil me when I went on there,” Carey commented. “So, you know, that’s the only reason why I say that [to Richie].”
As for Katy Perry, who’s already confirmed she will be a judge on the reboot, Carey had nothing but positive words.
“She’ll be good too,” Carey said. “They both will be good.”
