Mariah Carey says she was "nice" with her quote "I do not know her" about Jennifer Lopez



Mariah Carey claims to have said nothing in her quote on Jennifer Lopez, who has since become a meme.

It all began in the early 2000s, when a paparazzi member asked Carey about the star with three threats. She answered pointblank: "I do not know her." The shadow occurred at a time when there was a split between the singer "Hero" and the artist "I am Real".

In a new interview with ForkCarey insists that the comment was not conceived as a diss.

"I was really trying to say something nice or say nothing at all, I really had to," she notes.

As for the answer to his now iconic quote, Carey adds, "I'm trying to stay out of this because you can not drown in that." I do not know how people read comments while time, and then survive. "

The 48-year-old actress has no problem embracing her diva image, noting, "I mean, look, it's part of me, if you're going to dress up and do a show, why do not you just to have fun and go? "

Although she claims to have tried to show her more realistic personality, Carey adds that she finally gave in to the diva's lifestyle.

"We love zhuzh a bit, I have tried so long for so long that people know that I am a real person and not that diva thing that they have tried to create on me, or this person unattainable in the past, "she explains. "But in the end, everyone does not care, they really do not, they'll have their perception of you."

Carey seems to be singing a different song nowadays with regard to Lopez. In 2016, the mother of two children was again interviewed about the 49-year-old artist while she was Watch what's going on live with Andy Cohen, and how her diva mate claimed that they had actually met.

"Apparently, I'm forgetful because I do not remember the fact that it was just like:" Hi, I'm such. " And then, continue, "Carey argued." If I have never had a conversation with you and someone asks me questions about you, I would say, "I do not know him, but he has look cool. "

"Does she look cool?" Cohen asked.

"I do not know her, what should I say?" Carey responded, not mentioning Lopez's name during the conversation.
