American Idol’ judge Randy Jackson is said to be the new manager of song-bird Mariah Carey.

We’re hearing that Carey chose Randy to run her career ‘cuz, he’s the bidness bruh,’ lol Randy has been Mariah’s close friend for the longest. And he’s also played a pivotal role in her career for the past 20 years.

During the singer’s peak with Sony, Jackson served as vice president of A&R at the label and contributed massively to her phenomenal comeback album ‘The Emancipation of Mimi’, as well as her 2010 Christmas album, ‘Merry Christmas II You’.

Randy is said to be the mastermind behind her current Christmas duet with Justin Bieber.

Mrs. Carey was previously signed to Chris Lighty‘s Violator Entertainment but, cut’em loose when the company merged with Primary Wave in September.
