Mariah Carey

Mariah is a sweetheart but back in the day you wouldn't say that about her if you where her boss. Mariah worked numerous jobs. From waiting tables to working coat check at nightclubs. Mrs. Carey was fired from many of those jobs due to "lack off focus" and attitude problems!

Before B.O.B. was rocking the stage on the waterfront as the headliner of 'KahBang 2010' he was serving up those foot long subs at Subway. It's not a big surprise as he immortalized his resume in his 2010 tune 'Airplanes' with Hayley Williams of Paramore.

Nicki Minaj

Oh what I'd do to see the hip-hop diva Nicki Minaj working at Red Lobster!! Yep that's correct! Before Nicki was spitting mad rhymes she was crackin' claws. She was eventually fired for chasing a customer from the restaurant for stealing her pen...niceeee! Nicki also worked as an office manager but was again...fired. She claims shes been fired about 15 times!
