Mariah Carey Has Nothing Nice to Say About Nicki Minaj

Subscribe to HOT 99.1 on

Mariah Carey has a reputation of being a diva and she’s never been one to hide it. We all know being a diva can mean throwing some shade and she did just that when the star of E!’s new mini docu-series Mariah’s World stopped by Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live.

The lauded singer discussed her relationship with two other female superstars, JLo and Nicki Minaj. Host Andy Cohen dug back in the past and revisited Carey’s comments about not knowing the “Ain’t Yo Mama” singer. “I don’t know her. What am I supposed to say?” MiMi said. “I’m not gonna put on a thing like, ‘We’re all Hollywood. Let’s pretend we’re all best friends because we’re in that land.’ It’s no offense to anybody.”

It’s safe to say Mariah and JLo aren’t friends. JLo cosigned the statement a while back confirming she and Mimi “have never met.” Mariah may not hang out with Jenny From the Block, but she did work closely with Nicki Minaj and it seems the two divas have been bickering since.

When asked to say three nice things about Minaj, Mariah simply couldn’t think of anything nice to say, so she chose to take another route. “Can you?” she asked. “You know, I always felt it was more important, with that situation, to not plead the fifth, but to just stay above the fray,” Carey said. “Because you don’t want to be déclassé. You just want to move it along.”

Nicki wasn’t the only rapper Mimi shaded. She also refused to comment on three nice things about Eminem, instead focusing on describing the chocolatey treats known as “M&M’s.”

Although the “Obsessed” singer has had her share of beef with other artists, she did praise Jay-Z. “We love him,” she told Cohen. Mimi also shared that she is also down with the BeyHive. “I love Beyoncé, she knows this, most people know that. I’m a fan, I love her. We have fun together, she’s a fun person, she’s really cool.” She would even consider working alongside Queen Bey. “Are we collaborating? I don’t know. We have never talked about it,” she said. “I would love to do a collaboration with her.”
