Mariah Carey discusses Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, & new album on ‘Breakfast Club’...


On February 11th, Mariah Carey visited the controversial 'Breakfast Club'. This was a first. She can't be as diva as everyone makes her out to be if she's appearing on a show that some would deem beneath her. When an artist has enjoyed a certain level of success and reached their peak, can they really consider themselves "too good" to appear on certain shows, no matter how ratchet or scandalous? Promotion is promotion at the end of the day right?
And while promoting her new single 'You’re Mine (Eternal)', she answered questions from Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee, and DJ Envy during the 38-minute interview. Ariana Grande has been known for swagger-jacking MC's vocal style and 90s sound, so Mariah was asked about the comparisons. She also discusses American Idol, the Nicki Minaj feud, Beyoncé, her new album and much more. Check out some highlights from the interview below.

On 'American Idol' controversy: “I don’t even remember what that was. That was a moment in my life that I’m going to press delete.”

On Nick Cannon's mouth diarrhea: “Nick needs to slow down and stop talking so much.”

On rumours that she dated Cam’ron: “I never dated Cam’ron, but Cam’ron was my friend.”

On Ariana Grande: “I wish everybody all the best of luck and if this is the career path they choose, hope that they can achieve longevity.”

On Beyoncé’s 'Drunk in Love': “I don’t know that song. I love Beyoncé, but I have not heard the song.”

On her new album: “I have a song called ‘Thirsty.’ It’s a record I did with Hit-Boy.”

On Dem Babies: “I’m very hands on. I fire nannies like this and I hate doing it, but I have to ’cause if they try to make themselves more important in the baby’s mind than me…”

On her twins’ Christmas book: “Nick released a press release, but I have not agreed to those terms… I have a Christmas movie that is in the works for next year.”

On Glitter: “I regretted Glitter for the longest, but now it’s a cult classic and I own it. I own the masters, so I can do any type of remake.”

On her breakdown in 2001: “I didn’t have a mental breakdown. I had a diva fit … Suicidal no, I would never do that. That’s against my faith.”
