Did Jennifer Lopez Shade Mariah Carey Over That Botched NYE Performance?

If you’re reading this, then by now you know Mariah Carey‘s performance for New Year’s Rockin’ Eve was a disaster. Mariah’s camp says it was the show’s producers who biffed it with her faulty monitors, and the producers denied any wrongdoing, but either way it was a cringe-inducing end to a cringe-inducing year. And Jennifer Lopez seems to agree!

According to Digital Spy, Lopez liked a post on Instagram about the NYE performance that read, “Ever seen an accident you couldn’t take your eyes away from? That was her tonight!”


We now live in an age in which a “like” constitutes “throwing shade,” but this has the added subtext of JLo being the target of Carey’s famous “I don’t know her” jab. So, I guess JLo shaded Mimi and this sick burn is 2017’s first pop beef.

For what it’s worth, Carey already brushed off the performance.
