Mariah Carey Further Explains J.Lo Meme, But Shades Nicki Minaj in the Meantime

Mariah Carey is explaining that shady-as-hell meme from a decade-old interview again, but this time she went in depth. When the singer visited Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday (May 17), host Andy Cohen asked why she said she didn't know Jennifer Lopez in an old interview.

"Apparently, I'm forgetful," Carey says about meeting Jennifer Lopez, which is a subtle reference to a J.Lo interview with Wendy Williams from earlier this year. Carey explained that she needs to have a conversation with a person before she really knows them.

Back in 2013, Lopez explained the same meme to Cohen, saying: “I don't have a feud against her at all. I know from back in the day, I've read things that she's said about me that were not the greatest, but we have never met,” Lopez said.

Also on the show, Carey played the "Plead the Fifth" game, in which Cohen asked her juicy questions and she could only opt out of one of them. Turns out, Carey doesn't have anything nice to say about Nicki Minaj, with whom she notoriously beefed in 2012, while co-panelists on American Idol.
