Mariah Carey Disses 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.

      I see no lies there. Her shades are epic and thrown with such ease. But holding a beef against someone who did no wrong (she was used without her knowledge by ur ex) for roughly 2 decades is just beyond petty. More like bitter.
      She can shade Jlo all she wants, as far as relevancy and star power goes today, we know who is still ahead.

    I love this lady. She’s a bitch though, but I can’t help but love her. I hear J.Lo’s a bigger bitch so they are a perfect match.

    Aren’t they both old cougars? They just about got launched into their careers at about the same time. I remember “Jenny from the block” and “Always be my baby” was top on radio playlists. Perhaps their feud started then. Competition became war unconsciously. Biko, make dem rest

      When it comes to musical talent, Mariah wears the crown. Overall talent, we talk J.Lo. The beef isn’t far-fetched.
      Lol.

      Mariah was making hits in the 80’s before J-Ho crossed the borders of Mexico. So no, their careers didn’t take off at the same time. They just happened to have those particular hits on the chart at that time.

      And as much as I don’t like Mariah, I really wouldn’t call what J-Ho does singing. She’s an entertainer if anything.
      But if I were to pick sides, definitely J-Ho cos bitch got my 46 year old body ?

        Puerto Rico @Magdiva, Puerto Rico.

        Though she was born in The Bronx, New York, her parents are from Puerto Rico.

        Not every latino comes from Mexico.

        Let us not be channeling Donald Trump up in here.????

    I don’t see why we are making a big deal out of this… She said she doesn’t know her like that to say things about her. It’s a simple thing and I believe her. Although she has always had this rivalry with other artists- Whitney, Celine, Nicki, what she said there was clear and relatable

    I hate that Bitch Mariah, she kinda reminds me of me during dark days(which is why I’m trying to change).

    She’s an old fat hoe who doesn’t care about anyone but her fucking self..

    I can’t stand her.
