Mariah Carey Shades Jennifer Lopez & Nicki Minaj But Gushes Over Beyoncé on ‘WWHL’

Wherever Mariah Carey goes, shade follows! And on Tuesday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, the pop diva did not disappoint.

After showing up late to the live interview – and demanding to sit in Cohen’s chair to make sure the cameras got her good side, Carey was forced to address her quasi-feud with fellow music superstar Jennifer Lopez.

When previously asked about the Feel the Light singer, Carey has often shrugged off the question by saying she didn’t know Lopez enough to have any opinion about her. However, host Andy Cohen asked Carey what she thought about Lopez saying that the two have in fact crossed paths before.

“Apparently, I’m forgetful because I don’t remember the fact that it was just like, ‘Hi, I’m so and so.’ And then move on,” Carey argued. “If I have never had a conversation with you and someone asked me about you, I’d be like, ‘I don’t know him, but he seems cool.’”

“Does she seem cool?” Cohen asked.

“I don’t know her, what am I supposed to say?” Carey replied, without mentioning Lopez’s name during the conversation.

Carey was equally dismissive when it came to Nicki Minaj, whom she starred alongside as a judge on the 12th season of American Idol. The two were involved in one of the most high-profile feuds in the show’s history and have famously hated each other since.

“Can you say three nice things about Nicki Minaj?” Cohen asked.

After a comically long pause Carey replied, “Can you?”

Carey didn’t seem to have any remorse about not appearing on the Idol finale either. When asked about missing the massive TV event, she sarcastically explained, “I was heartbroken that I couldn’t be there. I was in misery. No, for real, I was at home crying because I wanted to be there so bad!”

However, Carey wasn’t all negative. In fact, she had nothing but praise for Britney Spears – who she said is, “just a really nice girl” – and Beyoncé, who she couldn’t help but gush over at length.

“I love Beyoncé. She knows this, most people know that. I’m a fan, I love her and we have fun together, like she’s a fun person, she’s really cool,” Carey said. “I would love to do a collaboration with her.”

However, the question is: Would Beyoncé be good enough to sing at Carey’s future wedding? When the diva was recently asked by ET who she thought was qualified to croon at her nuptials to fiancé James Packer, Carey said, “Fucking nobody.” Check out the video below.

  1. Two words for Mariah: Grow Up!

    • I agree, she really needs to grow up. I was reading this and kept thinking how immature she is.

    • Oh Nene, there’s no hope of that for Mariah. If a youtube video I saw documenting her cattiness is anything to go by, this is part of her that’s legendary. No growing up for her o.

  2. What is wrong with this woman??? At what age, biko? Hian!

  3. I love Mariah and all but she needs to take several seats. In the back. Where her has-been voice won’t be heard for a day or two.
