Mariah Carey on Singing With Jennifer Lopez: “I’d Rather Be on Stage With a Pig”
Rumors about a feud between Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey have been swirling for years, though it seems pretty clear who has been the instigator. In a recent interview where Mariah Carey was asked if she would ever sing with J.Lo, Carey said, “I’d rather be on stage with a pig. A duet with Jennifer Lopez and me just ain’t gonna happen.” Dayum! Claws in, girlfriend. You could hurt someone slinging that hash!
Also, below we have video of Mariah Carey in an interview segment with a German television channel. The OG Diva praises Beyonce to the skies but when asked about J.Lo, Carey raises an eyebrow and says pointedly, “No, I don’t know her…” Well, as J.Lo is one of the most well known faces in the world, that makes one of you, Mariah.
If we were J.Lo, we think this talk would be enough to go all Bronx and throw down in a full-on catfight. But Lopez took the high road when she called in to Nick Cannon’s 92.3 FM radio show to promote American Idol. She was all sugar chatting with Carey’s hubby about her upcoming babies, her hectic schedule, and — get this — how much of a Mariah fan of she is!
When Nick asked J.Lo about whether there was any beef between her and Carey, Lopez answered, "Never has been for me at all. No, no, I've always been a big fan of hers. It's all love from me. J.Lo continued, "I feel really blessed in my life, and it's not a competition with other people, it's a competition with myself."
Oooh, somehow we can imagine that Lopez taking the high road just infuriates Mariah even more, and on her husband’s radio show no less! As the the expression goes: Better are the wounds from a friend than the kisses of an enemy.
We say, better watch your back, Mariah. That sweet talk sounds like a smoke screen, and we all know J.Lo doesn’t play around. Just ask the last person who crossed her, Ricky Gervais!
