People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

"Her deal is rumored to be just under $18 million for one year with an option to renew," a source familiar with the negotiation tells People.

As for how Mariah's deal stacks up against other singing show judges: Christina Aguilera will make about $10 million on the third season of The Voice. Howard Stern as a judge on America's Got Talent is being paid $15 million.

Do you think Mariah is worth that kind of money?!
