Mariah Carey generally works pretty hard at being elusive. Like, remember that whole album she made about being elusive? Now, at the tail end of shooting her much-anticipated reality series, Mariah's elusivity is being questioned by none other than Andy Cohen, who successfully circumvented Mariah's mysteriousness and managed to get her to spill T on basically every pop star in the biz on an episode of Watch What Happens Live. Do we have any napkins or paper towels to clean up all the tea? She spilled it everywhere, it's going to stain the carpets.
Coaxing Ms. Carey with a goofy lightning-round game, Cohen managed to get her gossip on all the girls. Here's the rundown, via Jezebel:
"On Lady Gaga, Mariah said: 'She came to my show, she was very sweet...and we had a nice conversation.'
Madonna: 'Uh, never had a conversation with her.'
Katy Perry: 'Nice girl, she came to my show as well.'
Britney Spears: 'I love Britney Spears.'
Miley Cyrus: 'I think we met in a bathroom...I don’t know.'"
But her answers on pop stars like Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato were a little more complicated: For example, Mariah admitted to being unfamiliar with Grande's work: “I don’t know when early in the career was...I don’t know...honestly I’m really not familiar, I listen to hip-hop more than I listen to pop music.”
For Demi (who has called out Mariah for her sass in the past), Mariah reserved some careful shade: “I don’t know her either, and so I wouldn’t say anything to her. She should come up, introduce herself to me, say here’s my opinion, ‘What do you think about it?’ That’s how you handle shit, OK?”
And for Beyonce? Only praise:
"We're friends. I think she's one of the most talented women out there. I just love her," said Mariah. Homegirl knows better than to poke at the Beyhive.
