Mariah Carey's new manager: Randy Jackson?

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Randy Jackson is very close to signing a deal that would have him managing Mariah Carey’s career.

Apparently Mimi and the “American Idol” judge go way back. Jackson was the vice president of A&R for Columbia Records during the 1990s, where Carey was signed from 1988 to 2001.

Plus, Randy has a long history of working closely with Mariah. He played bass for her in the studio and on the road, served as her musical director, appeared on her records and has co-written and produced tracks for the diva.

Jackson even produced Mariah’s 2010 Christmas album, “Merry Christmas II You.”

And he’s already in management mode: Randy reportedly accompanied Mariah to film the music video for "All I Want For Christmas Is You" – her holiday duet with Justin Bieber – on November 2.

    Mimi is a great choice as a judge. The Diva knows her music and having Randy as her manager is the icing on the cake

    She's not worthless if she's making money. You (Truth) on the other hand, are. I will admit she could make more if she and I hung out. Call them what you want, but beggars can't be choosers... you can pick your sister and mother but honestly that's just wrong.

      Well from how you respond we can obviously tell you're white. BTW, apparently no one likes you... your comment was erased faster than Kim Kardashian's marriage.
