Mariah Carey Throws Fresh Shade at Nicki Minaj, Because Of Course (VIDEO)
Mariah Carey is not just a legendary singer, she’s legendary when it comes to throwing shade at people she doesn’t like. And Nicki Minaj, her former colleague at the judging panel for American Idol, is at the top of the list — even three years later.
Mariah dished on Bravo’s Watch What Happens: Live during a segment titled “Plead the Fifth” with host Andy Cohen. When asked if she could think of three nice things about Nicki, Mariah paused and said, “Can you?” Later, Andy asked Mariah to address her last appearance on WWHL, in which she claimed not to know who Jennifer Lopez was. Apparently, J-Lo later told Andy at an awards show that they did, in fact, know each other. But Mariah defended herself, telling Andy that what she said about J-Lo wasn’t intended disrespectfully. She simply meant that she didn’t really know J-Lo personally. Mariah goes on to say that she’s not going to perpetuate a fake Hollywood image where everyone is best friends despite never having spent any real time together. It’s a delightfully honest interview, and I actually like hearing Mariah clarify her opinions rather than toss out shade, left and right. That said, the format of this show didn’t really give her much of a choice, I guess. Either way, you can check out Mariah’s opinionated interview by watching the videos below:
