Billboard Music Awards: Watch The Performances
From Mariah Carey to Britney and Iggy, catch all the BBMAs performances here.

Just when it looked like Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez had buried the hatchet, their feud looks set to reignite thanks to some (admittedly hilarious) shade from both sides. Mimi got the ball rolling by making what was interpreted by many as a dig at J.Lo in her #1 To Infinity booklet. “I would say this song helped pave the way for a specific genre of rap collaborations that followed,” she said of 1995 chart-topper “Fantasy.” “And many careers that were made on this specific model.” And we all know Jenny broke big with pop/rap hybrids like LL Cool J-assisted “All I Have” and “Ain’t It Funny” (featuring Ja Rule and Caddillac Tah).

The stunning triple-threat got a little revenge last night (May 17) during the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. The camera cut to the confused-looking diva during Mariah’s performance and today footage has surfaced online of Jennifer scrolling through her Twitter timeline during the rest of Mimi’s medley. It’s unfortunate because they seemed to be getting along better a little better after J.Lo defended her rival’s album sales during a radio interview. Oh, and if you’re wondering where their beef started, it has a lot to do with Tommy Motola and a little to do the Lamb Whisper’s legendary drag below.

Watch Jennifer completely ignore Mariah’s performance here. I love them both and can’t wait to check out both of their Vegas residencies, but let’s just hope they don’t run into each other on the street!
