First in line was former American Idol colleague Nicki Minaj. Mariah refused to even acknowledge her existence, saying “who?” when asked a question. She then ripped into the show implying it was beneath her. (Fair enough). Other highlights include the Lamb Whisperer dissing Ariana Grande (“I wish everybody all the best of luck and if this is the career path they choose, hope that they can achieve longevity”).
Mimi also claimed not to have heard Beyonce‘s “Drunk In Love” but tempered it by saying “I love [her]“. It looks like the pop icon has truly perfected the art of reading lessors like a library book and I’m all for it. The 43-year-old has reached the point in her career where she can do whatever she likes. Especially when her new music is as good as “You’re Mine (Eternal)”. Watch up top.
