Mariah Carey was 'joking' when she said she didn't care about Britney Spears' X Factor role

Superstar Mariah Carey has taken to social networking site Twitter in order to clear up rumours that suggest she wasn't a fan of Simon Cowell's decision to give Britney Spears a judging role on X Factor USA.

Recently, the 'Hero' sensation told U.S. show Extra that she wasn't interested in the televised talent show and admitted that she didn't care who had signed up as judges:

"You think I focus on that stuff? Have we met? I love (Spears), honestly. I think she's a very nice person, but I don't care who's going on that show - as long as it's not me."

Earlier today (May 16), Carey tweeted a public message to both Simon Cowell and new panelist Britney Spears to clear up the speculation, writing:

"@BritneySpears & @SimonCowell of course I luv+care about you dahhlings, congrats! U never know what's true or gossip, I was joking around! xo"
