Ruh-roh! In the early 2000’s when Mariah Carey was asked about fellow songstress, Jennifer Lopez, and she responded, “I don’t know her,” it boiled up quite a stir in the media industry.
Jennifer Lopez was a guest at The Wendy Williams Show, and they were chit chatting about Sin City, “The residency was a dream. When I think of Vegas, I think of Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley and iconic performers. Before I even signed my deal to go to Vegas, when they were offering it to me, I went and saw a bunch of shows. I saw everybody. I saw Britney Spears, I saw Shania Twain.” And, she coyly mentioned that she was unable to see Mariah Carey because she wasn’t playing.
Well, Wendy being Wendy, had just the response, “Who? No, I’m playing. That’s what Mariah said about Jennifer one time.”
Ms. J.LO handled Wendy’s comment in the most polite manner and said, “She does say that. She’s forgetful I guess! We’ve met many times. I don’t know…I don’t know her that well.”
Ha! So, there is no pre-existing feud, just a bunch of mumbo-jumbo media created rumors.
