Mariah Carey fires any nanny who tries to be more important to her children than she is.
"Unfortunately I have to have nannies but I'm very hands-on. I fire nannies like this (snapping her fingers)," she said on New York's Power 105.1 The Breakfast Club show.
"And I hate doing it, but I have to because if they try to make themselves more important in the babies' mind than me..."
The star added that her kids are already showing signs they are musical, as they both love singing.
While Nick has previously said he wouldn't want the twins to be famous when they are older, Mariah is more philosophical and insisted she won't stop them doing anything if they are talented.
Mariah was also quizzed on what she has planned for Valentine's Day, which is tomorrow. She joked she doesn't even know if her famously workaholic husband will be at home for the romantic holiday.
However even if he isn't, it won't matter as he shows how he feels in other ways.
"I have to say Nick is very festive as well. I give him credit where credit's due; flowers, we celebrate our anniversary every month of the year," she explained.
The singer famously appeared as a judge on American Idol, something she has mixed feelings about.
She didn't get on well with her fellow panellist Nicki Minaj and has previously lamented the way their difficult relationship was turned into a reality TV show for the programme.
How, she refuses to even discuss her fellow singer.
"I don't even remember what that was. That was a moment in my life that I'm just going to press delete," she said.
