The Real Reason Mariah Carey Ignores Jennifer Lopez?


Years ago Mariah Carey famously shaded Jennifer Lopez claiming in an interview, "I don't know her [click here if you missed that]."

Turns out the bad blood all boils down to Mariah Carey's ex-husband Tommy Mottola...

Irv Gotti tells Desus and Mero,
“[Mottola] calls me because he found out me and Rule made a record with Mariah Carey. At the time, he hated Mariah Carey, so he was pumping Jennifer Lopez to compete, so he calls me and he says Irv I need you make a record with J.Lo but I want you to put Ja Rule on it and make it a duet.”
“Immediately when he said that, I was like, ‘This [expletive]. He knows we just did this sh-t with Mariah and he’s trying to f-ck Mariah!”
Of course 'I'm Real' went on to be a massive hit for Jennifer.

Did Mariah suddenly suffered amnesia and forgot she was once Whitney's 'Jlo?' Back when she first came out, Mariah like Jlo was used by Tommy to sabotoged competition. Same ol' tactics were used. Tommy made sure to big up Mariah's career and make it known she was coming for Whitneys throne by taking a hold of songs that were meant for her. Mariah was ok with playing that dirty game in order to further her career and establish herself as a new version of Whitney Houston. Mariah was not a naive young girl like she potrayed herself. It was all a fabricated image that Tommy created that she herself later admitted. Mariah knew what she was getting herself into. If you dont believe it. Then why did Mariah get involved with Tommy while he was still married to his first wife? Then when he divorced his first wife, why did she quickly married him? Because Mariah was ambitious thats why! She knew by being with Tommy, it was a guaranteed way to stardom. Mariah was not that innocent either. Thats the real reason why Whitney did not like her at first. She knew she was being sabotage by Mariah's camp (Tommy) behind the scenes. Those comparisons didnt come out of nowhere. Tommy made sure to highlight Mariah as the great new voice of music. Whitney wasnt having it, she threw hella shade at her for it. Fast forward, Mariah is the more prominent star. Mariah faces trouble cause she is now sabotoged by the same man she allied herself to sabotage Whitney. Tommy puts Mariah against his equally attractive artist (who can dance better than her but can not sing as good as her). Now Mariah wants to play stupid and throw fits when is being done to HER? Bye Mariah. You cant throw the victim card when you, yourself played the same dirty tactics. You reap what you sow.

On the other hand, I think Mariah is insanely insecure and jealous of competition and those who she views as threat. Remember how dismissive and arrogant she was when Christina Aguilera first came out and was being compared to her? Mariah was a cold bish for no reason. Same with Leona Lewis and now Ariana grande. (I get why Ariana though the girl cant enunciate properly without sounding like shes garglimg marbles) still, Mariah needs to get off her extremely high horse and get over it. Shes already a legend she has nothing else to prove. These new artists shouldn't be a threat to her neither should a basic singer like Jlo. Jlo is not even in her level, she is just an icon.

I think it all falls back to Mariah being her usual insecure and jelous self. Jlo had it easier than her in a way if you think about it. Jlo got media attention for her big ass and her looks along with a top movie hit (Selena). The media wouldnt shut up about it. While Mariah had to work the extra mile for it. Then this big arsed actress becomes a 'singer' and becomes even more popular. Mariah had to be shook by this and moreso after the fact Jlo was used by Tommy to destroy the rest of her career. After jlo become the bigger star. Thats when Mariah had the breakdown. Think about it, Jlo's songs became hits, one which was meant for her. Her movies were also hits and in theaters. The media was in constant frenzy due to her high profile relationships with Diddy and Ben. Meanwhile Mariah's was sabotaged, her career was tarnished and she was flopping everywhere. It mustve been a huge blow to her considering she was once the it girl and shes the more talented one. This explains why shes extra bitter with Jlo and her constant shade throws her. Because she had to endure her rise to stardom and her consistency with other ventures like acting, dancing, fashion, perfume lines ect. While Mariah had her comeback that ended already and now at 50 is stuck at Vegas shows lip syncing singing to her old songs. Mariah is to blame though because of her current antics.

Mariah needs to let go of that Jlo hate and worry about cleaning up the little shes got left of her image. And this is coming from Mariah fan.
