Weigh In: Did Katy Perry Slam Mariah Carey?

Published: Wednesday 5th Mar 2014 by Sam

It’s not often the names Katy Perry and Mariah Carey are uttered in the same sentence.

Indeed, one has a voice that has inspired generations, while the other’s vocals only function on VEVO.

Likewise, one is used to roaring atop of the charts, while the other is barely able to break the iTunes 1000 with her fourth “lead single”.

Put simply, the ladies’ careers are in different places and spaces in the best and worst of ways.

Yet, that didn’t stop Perry from waxing honest when quizzed about Mimi during an interview on Australia’s Sunrise this week.

Currently Down Under to promote her hit album ‘Prism’, the Pop force offered an “interesting” response when the ‘You’re Mine’ singer’s name was brought up.

See what we mean below…

When the show’s hosts erroneously labelled Perry the industry’s biggest female star, she corrected them, suggesting instead that it’s Beyonce that deserves such an honour.

Interestingly, though, when one of the hosts offered Mariah Carey as an option, the singer smiled and replied:

“Well…she is fabulous for a throwback, fabulous!”

Peep the footage, including the gasps from fans and presenters, below (at 7.09 mark)

So, we want to know your thoughts…

Did Katy Perry Slam Mariah?

    Come on no, Beyonce is one of the biggest if not the biggest pop act right now. And Katy said ‘a throwback’ because Mariah used to big in the 90s. There is no shade!

      Mariah Carey is a has been and never will be again and she can’t handle it. Madonna has been certified as the best selling artist in history and she cant handle that. Since Mariah Divorced the guy at Sony…her career has gone down hill which makes many wonder if she was nothing more than studio magic. Lets face it…she cant carry a note singing live…and there is always some lame excuse to back it up. I think she is fake, machine rendered sound and nothing more. I seen her in concert once. an we say….boring!

    Come on now, Beyonce is one of the biggest if not the biggest pop act right now. And Katy said ‘a throwback’ because Mariah used to big in the 90s. There is no shade!

  3. Niffert March 5, 2014

    You guys will do anything for a story!!

    She was being nice about her. Pitting artists again each other. Pathetic!

  4. NikFerg March 5, 2014

    Well I Hate That talentless B****,But Shes right on this one! 😉 Mariah=HASBEEN

  5. Kiss my a** March 5, 2014

    Sh!tty Kitty aka Cunty perry don’t start you don’t want it honey.

  6. the real xoxo March 5, 2014

    Yes she did.
    I don’t really care, but it’s clear that Katy spends more time ass-licking/shading other artists than getting her own s*** together.

  7. Check Your Lipstick Before You Come & Talk To Me March 5, 2014

    I will check my lipstick while MC prepares to snatch that Cleopatra wig right off her head and read ha down… Side note: It’s nice to see some personality Katy – might as well throw some shade!

  8. 2 girls 1 cup March 5, 2014

    That wasn’t Shade she was just stating the truth! Nobody could touch Mariah carey in the 90’s unfortunately shes not as popular any more but shes still a legend with that being said Katy Perry doesn’t even hold a candle to mariah or to any diva shes just a bubblegum pop singer whose target audience is 12 years old i mean come on look at her newest video as cheesy as can be and she just make fast food hits nothing memorable!

  9. Check Your Lipstick Before You Come & Talk To Me March 5, 2014

    BUT that being said, Katy told no lies, MC is not relevant anymore, hence a throwback! If we are talking about WW the girls on top are Bey, Rih, and Katy. Check the facts people and put your stan BS aside.

  10. Kiss my a** March 5, 2014

    Beyonce is whack Af the only reason she’s still here cause she’s had no competition…. kinda like how rihanna is winning by default cause Kii.

  11. Katy Talentless March 5, 2014

    Yes…She did slam Mariah. Who the f*ck is this autotuned h**…thinking she can speak like that??
    Probably because Mariah won the Billboard poll for best video between Katy Talentless and Nicki Garbage…And whether people realise it or not…Mariah IS #1 still….and Katy WANTS to be the best selling female artist of all time…NEVER gonna happen. #WhatABitch

  12. 2 girls 1 cup March 5, 2014

    I Mean this is no different that went Mariah carey said back in 95 that she hadn’t pay attention to madonna since the 8th grade when she used to be popular..divas stay shading each other but i dont think this was shade

  13. KatyKadet March 5, 2014

    Katy tells no lies and it WAS shade. Since when is throwback a good thing to be when you’re still trying to be relevant TODAY.

    • tim August 6, 2014

      Except that Madonna is still relevant today with huge global tours and nearly 2M copies so for a “flop” album, while Mariah’s new album struggles to reach 250k globally.

  14. Mark111 March 5, 2014

    I knew this site would pull something out it’s ass..

  15. IggyIggyIggy March 5, 2014

    200 million sold is all I have to say.

  16. Katy Perry The Slag March 5, 2014

    One is a LEGITIMATE LEGENDARY SINGER…One is a ATTENTION W**** WITH NO TALENT…Apart from dressing up like a tart in “candy” and singing about bubblegum and lollipops.

    One is AN ICON…The other is a WANNABE.

    Check the receipts…because neither Beyonce or Katy Pretender are the biggest female artists in the world…Mariah Carey…why would she try and shade her otherwise??

    Mariah = Over 280 millions albums sold…18 #1’s…countless other RECORDS.

    Katy = Why even bother…she can’t sing and she’s clearly a nasty b**** with no respect.

  17. Stephy Tha Lambily March 5, 2014

    Mariah Carey’s best material came out 2005 & back so she is a throwback in terms of music.

    BUT my problem not with GENERIC singer Katy Garbage its with Sam’s obsession with BASHING & SLAMMING Mariah Carey in every post!

    DO I NEED TO SET IT OFF ON THIS BLOG ONCE AGAIN!!!!!

  18. Truth March 5, 2014

    Y’all do know Madonna shaded mariah first saying “if she sound like Mariah she would kill herself” that’s why Mariah responded like that. Get facts right before speaking people

  19. Stephy Tha Lambily March 5, 2014

    DO I NEED TO SET IT THE F**** OFF ON THIS BLOG AGAIN HUH SAM !!!

  20. idgi March 5, 2014

    A lot are saying it wasn’t shade and all that but I bet if and when Mariah finds out she’ll take it as shade. Lbr.

  24. Yupthasme March 5, 2014

    More Than 250 million copies sold, broken about every billboard record, still relevant today (obviously, she’s being talked about), artist of the millenium, had two songs of the decade, 18 #1 hits on billboard.. When Katy has achieved that then holla at the kid.

  25. h2o March 5, 2014

  30. Katy Perry The P**** Seller March 5, 2014

    DISGUSTING behavior from Katy…What does she get out of it by speaking that way? She clearly has an axe to grind, why are all these new artist’s sooo disrespectful?

    Katy needs to shut her mouth and learn to sing before she utter’s another word. #WHODOESTHAT

  31. Naomi March 5, 2014

    Well Beyonce is MUCH bigger than Mariah NOW. But I don’t think she was slamming her.

  32. JOHNVIDAL March 5, 2014

    She wasn´t shading Mariah. It can´t be that. It would be hilarious someone like Katy Perry shading Mariah Carey, really, we are in an all time low when it comes to quality standards in mainstream music, but not even these young girls themselves believe they are comparable to the best artists ever. No way they are that stupid.
    And btw, these “journalists” are a joke. In what world is Katy Perry the biggest star of the moment? In the world? NO Maybe in the ridiculously generic Australian singles charts 🙂

  33. True Talent (Formerly Lil Mo’s fake stan) Stan and Trey Burke’s husband (Kendricks d*** game wasnt on point, so I divorced that a**)) March 5, 2014

    I dont care about mariah, but did this b**** shade beyonce? Listen, s****, your album was cute but dont get smacked. Beyonce still runs the game. Maybe im being sensitive, but it just seemed like she was throwing shade.

  34. Naomi March 5, 2014

    And the lambs won’t like this, but she spoke the truth. This is not 1990. My generation does not give two f**** about Mariah Carey in general.

  35. Stephy Tha Lambily March 5, 2014

    Sam, you better stop bashing Mariah Carey!

    She is one of the last legends we got left whether she can still sing or not & deserves respect!

    Dont be a flip flopper once Mariah Carey passes away like you did with Whitney Houston…

    Good FUCKINGG Bye!

  36. Le lucky March 5, 2014

    I want Mariah to retire she’s stale, fat and stuck in 1994. Where’s Your Mine on the charts?

  37. Naomi March 5, 2014

    @True Talen how tf did she shade her? She was praising her.

  38. Yeah I Said It March 5, 2014

    ‘Do not Blaspheme Beyonce’

    YASSSSSS Katy u betta Stannnnn!

  39. Mark111 March 5, 2014

    I knew this site would pull something out it’s ass. I noticed when 5 or more post get very few comments, the editor will post a made up one for a Stan war. We don’t need any more lambs jumping off a cliff with melt downs. That would be baaaaaaa aaaaa aad.

    That’s what I originally posted. Don’t edit my s*** SAM!

  40. FAF March 5, 2014

    Why is katy dressed more appropriately than Mariah in that pic ?

  41. Stephy Tha Lambily March 5, 2014

    I remember like it was yesterday in 2010!

    When this tacky website was posting & making fun of Whitney Houston but soon as she died they got all teary eyeded & honorific…

    F*** YOU SAM!

  42. Yeah I Said It March 5, 2014

    I got truth tea more than shade here.

  43. Le lucky March 5, 2014

    F*** Mariah carey and you too stankphy! Mariah is a FLOP

  44. JOHNVIDAL March 5, 2014

    Ok now I watched the video and she went a little too far when refering to Mariah. At least she knows Beyonce is more than she is, but how could she talk about Mariah in such a shady way?
    And please people, you can´t compare this with Mariah´s shade to madonna in the 90s. In that occasion, Madonna shaded first and Mariah was asked about it directly in a press conference, about that issue that Madonna had said those things about her, so she answered throwing her shade, she had to, and she did good. In this Katy Perry´s case, she shaded for no reason, she could have left it at that, this man who suggested it noticed that he was probably wrong before Katy starting to shade, it was unnecessary.

  45. BeYAWNce March 5, 2014

    YAWNCE???? B**** Pleasee! This perry s**** patra need to learn notes in singing before coming for the Queen! MC, Rihanna, Britney knocked YAWNCE anyday, any f****** time

  46. Deja March 5, 2014

    Katy told no lies, Beyonce is that B****. Mariah had her time in the 90’s but she’s a joke/has been as of March 5,2014.

  47. Unbiased March 5, 2014

    Why are people bashing Bey? She didn’t do anything. I think what Katy said was unecessary, but she is right. Mariah is no longer in her prime. Bey is the biggest star right now, do you guys see how the media is on her!? Also, it’s Katy’s opinion, I don’t see how she sucking up. Katy is just humble, what other artists admits another artists is bigger currently than them? Lambs go buy “You’re Mine” and calm down.

  48. Stephy Tha Lambily March 5, 2014

    Also, Katy Perry is nothing more than a demonic puppet that will leave no type of mark on the industry except for being known as the white bitchh who was in RIHANNAs shaddow!

    This b**** talking about throwback & shitt! B**** you better be lucky you will even be considered a throwback once your in your 40s. People are gonna be so over your generic music by the time your white (already premature ageing) face is gonna be in your 40s …

    Bitchh,, cant sing worth a shitt. This b**** is in the prime of her life sounding like compltetr and utter s*** every stage she hits.

    And you better know your WHITE ass place behind QUEEN BEYONCE & Rihanna
    !!

    Also, thats why your fuckingg pusssy cant keep a man ho!

  49. JOHNVIDAL March 5, 2014

    Really, why are people trying to create a satn war between Mariah and Beyonce??? It´s not that (not to mention they are friends). It´s about an “artist” like Katy Perry daring to shade someone like Mariah Carey. If you are going to bash someone, at least do it with Katy, not Mariah or Beyonce.

  50. HIMEROS March 5, 2014

    Did I just see that? Did BASIC KUNTY-GRAMMYLESS perry really throw shade on Mariah? She is really trying to cling to some sort of relevancy. You don’t come for anyone in a class above you.

    Continue singing your fake vocals for Disney radio sweety

    Sis.
    Katy
    Sis

  51. CiciFinnaBeABride March 5, 2014

    Yaaaaas Katy, drag a bit.

  52. The Boy Toy March 5, 2014

    LMAO, oooop!

  53. Stephy Tha Lambily March 5, 2014

    Madonna: Sold 300,000,000+ Records
    1,000,000,000+ Net Worth

    Mariah Carey: Sold 250,000,000+ Records
    515,000,000+ Net Worth

    Celine Dion: Sold 220,000,000+ Records
    450,000,000+ Net Worth

    Katy Garbage will NEVER reach this type of success!

    Enjoy your 15 minutes before your face start cracking & your fans finnally outgrow your immature music ho!

    Also, why cant Katy keep a man. Cause her p**** game weak ass f**** HO!

  54. The Boy Toy March 5, 2014

    READ HER STEPHY!!!! LOLLLLLLL

  55. The Boy Toy March 5, 2014

    This was definitely SHADE. Look at her body language. Either that, or she was on the Molly because she was acting very weird. #theshadeisthick

  56. BeYAWNce March 5, 2014

    YAWNCE must have been paid perry dark Hoarse like she paid kanye west to kiss her ass. Jayz f**** kanye in Yawnce bed.

  57. Valerie March 5, 2014

    Oh please. U people need to sit down with the ‘how dare she’ b*******. Mariah throws shade at everyone and their damn moms and is disrespectful but as soon as someone like Katy does its a crime because its Mariah. B******* Mariah doesn’t pay for nobodies bills or put food on the table for Katy, Mariah often comes of rude and arrogant and Katy made little joke which i don’t think was meant to cause any harm simply because its the TRUTH.

  58. Valerie March 5, 2014

    @Beywance Pressed much? Mad it wasn’t Rihanna she said?

  59. Valerie March 5, 2014

    off*

  60. FentySoSnatched March 5, 2014

    Stephy is seething! Seethe on sistah! Seethe on!

  61. Barb B**** March 5, 2014

    She was right. Beyonce is the biggest popstar and mimi is yesterdays news. Shade or not it was the truth.

  62. BeYAWNce March 5, 2014

    YAWNCE Stans stay delusional when Rihanna is the biggest star right now. With a little help by her Voodoo Mama, YAWNCE struggle hard to stay relevant.

  63. HIMEROS March 5, 2014

    Please, when she learns to sing and stops pretending to be 12, maybe then people would respect and BELIEVE her success. We can look at her success in the charts all we want but that shiz looks as fake as her fake 12 year old Disney girl act.

    Difference is, Mariah doesn’t pretend she’s not shading people. Its real diva coming at you. But no, Kunty won’t admit it.

    Perry is basicly the gweneth paltrow and anne hathaway of the music business. Anoying as f*ck

  64. DIGGER BEY March 5, 2014

    Um @ Himores……Didn’t Lady Caca come for Madonna???? Sit the fawk down f*g. Anyway this whole story is funny as hell. That @ Yawnce Character is seeeeeeeeething like hell lmfao. A B*tch receiving 200 million for a tour >>>>>>>>>>>>>> every b*tch n the game! #DID SHE TELL U HO,ES TO BOW DOWN

  65. K March 5, 2014

    yup shot can fire ether way, and katy just showed that she can roar on and off the charts them claws an’t made of cup cakes.

  66. HIMEROS March 5, 2014

    Uhm shut up? Grandonna came for gags first.

  67. DIGGER BEY March 5, 2014

    3 Million sold n months >>>>>>>>>>>>>> 3 million sold over a year. #R**** = LESSER B*TCH

  68. DIGGER BEY March 5, 2014

    Didn’t anybody see Adele @ TMCS???? Yesssssssss Katy, Mylie, Adele, Demi and every other b*tch of this generation will tell u who THE QUEEN is. Lmfao @ Katy straighten that interviewer. THE QUEEN has inspired this generation more than any of her peers. She’s Legendary! No B*tch today can’t see her. Lmfaooooo And ur favs will tell u that KIIIIII

  69. Head scratcher March 5, 2014

    Digger bey you do understand that Beyoncé won’t get paid 200 million just because her tour grosses as much, right? You do understand, your queen, has to pay her team. And we not just speaking of dancers. Beyoncé will bring home a GOOD coin from this but she not walking away with 200million in her pocket. But she does have 200 million I’m sure so she is fine either way

  70. Valerie March 5, 2014

    @Bewyance stay pressed. Its not only Beyonce stans who call her that as u can see. Stay madddT

  71. DIGGER BEY March 5, 2014

    Head Scratcher…..Whatever the sum is, she’s still that TOP B*TCH! When she first started touring the sum was 116 Million. Now a year later, MTV reported over 200 Million! Who cares who she pays. The fact that someone is receiving that sum of money for touring screams REIGNING ON U H***!

  72. Head scratcher March 5, 2014

    Stephy, I follow this blog and the comment section often. Didn’t you change your screen name and joined the hive at one point? Wasn’t it you just a few weeks ago dragging mariah carey to hell and back? What brought you back to the lambs? FYI the real lambs call people like you a GOAT. Here is the truth people. Mariah is a throwback, and I am a true lamb, but she is still very much well respected today. She is a living legend but this era belongs to Beyoncé and it is well deserved. The real lambs are secure with Mariah’s legacy and understand she can’t be on top all the time. Just as mariah, Beyoncé too one day will be out of the top spot but that never changes the impact they have made in music. It is not about the now, in real life, it is about the legacy and longevity. Both Mariah Carey and Beyoncé Knowels have that. Facts people.

  73. ILOVEJAMESDEAN March 5, 2014

    Oh c’mon. All of Katy Perry’s discography pales in comparison to Mariah’s shittiest album. The heck, even Glitter is better than Prism. SMH.

  74. XYZ March 5, 2014

    @ Stephy Tha Lambily

    damn, get a life….posting every 5 minutes…

    as if sam would care bout the content of your stupid comments… you post a comment = he’s getting money

  75. coolness March 5, 2014

    I don’t want to believe this was shade. However, I do feel she could have worded it a bit better but no, this a reach. Katy has expressed that Mariah was the inspiration behind some of the songs on her new album and her next single is reminiscent of 90’s Mariah (I wonder how she will pull that off given her vocals)so I don’t think there are any bad feelings. For those bringing up the comment Mimi made on Madonna in the early 90’s, that was AFTER the latter threw shade by saying she’d rather kill herself than be her or listen to her music so try again. As for Beyonce, yeah she’s the biggest Pop star right now and I think Katy was simply being disparaging by mentioning her. Why do I feel like Sam is happy this happened? Lol, he’s been so upset with Mariah because she didn’t hear Bey’s song so this just perfect.

  76. DIGGER BEY March 5, 2014

    Agree @ Head Scratcher. If ur secure with ur Favs Impact and legacy. Then u wouldn’t care about the next generation achievements. I bet Queen Aretha fans didn’t hate on Mariah or Whitney. Aretha’s impact was certified and her fans alike understood her place in music history. I never see Whitney, MJ or Janet stans in here bashing other artist. Half of the Mariah stans that visit TGJ says Mariah is an Living Legend but the back and foward with others says they don’t really believe.

  77. Lovebird March 5, 2014

    Well Basic Perry and Payolariah do have two things in common;

    1.) They both struggle to sing in key
    2.) They are both LOCAL; how many hits do they have outside the USA? Hell Mariah wouldn’t have even gotten those hits if it wasn’t for payola.

    Anyway two overrated “divas” with s*** personalities going at it with each other, yawn….who cares.

  78. Lovebird March 5, 2014

    The only thing I’m looking forward to is Stephy’s meltdown; that queen has no life.

  79. Lovebird March 5, 2014

    I also see Digger Bey got rid of his troll account after exposing himself.

  80. Rosie March 5, 2014

    Well, Mooriah is a has-been, Katy is a label puppet, and I don’t really have a side to go with.

  81. Lovebird March 5, 2014

    Not the lambs acting like Mariah’s music is not forgettable. Mariah had the most forgettable crap in music from the 90s before Janet.

    Do people even remember those generic bubble gum payola hits like heartbreaker, honey, the song with Mystikal, through the rain… Etc? I CANNOT.

    Lambs are delusional y’all.

  82. DIGGER BEY March 5, 2014

    I also see AngryBird is still an Lonely Miserable C*nt who needs to expose himself inside an garbage crusher.

  83. Lovebird March 5, 2014

    And you need to expose yourself off the gay p*** site you act for Digger Bey.

  84. DIGGER BEY March 5, 2014

    I know @ AngryBird loves how Katy is coming for Hoeianna’s number ones and if Mariah used payola. I know That H** used it. 13 #1s but an floppppppppp n selling albums KIIIIII

  85. Lovebird March 5, 2014

    Digger Bey, you sound mad Beyonce cannot get a #1, when was her last one? LOCAL ladies some 6 years ago?

  86. Lovebird March 5, 2014

    How is partition doing boo?

  87. h2o March 5, 2014

    @Lovebird not stanning for Kumty anymore shows just that her music is just like a cumshot … instantly forgettable.

    Well they’re not really local, their sales are just too based to the Anglosphere and big markets where they’re supposed to be selling and it’s nothing impressive. But impact-wise, yes they’re totally local …

    Not everybody is Globanna after all

  88. Lovebird March 5, 2014

    The real tea here is Bangerz tour getting more headlines than FLOPmatic tour and will most likely outgross FLOPmatic tour and FLOPRave ball tour.

  89. Head Scratcher March 5, 2014

    I thought when you forget something, you forget everything that has to do with the subject. So, how can you list songs titles and claim that no one remembers them. Clearly you do

  90. DIGGER BEY March 5, 2014

    Didn’t Katy tell u who THE QUEEN was lmfao. THE QUEEN doesn’t need number ones to stay relevant. Hoeianna 13 number ones got her that Icon Award KIIIIIIII

  91. Lovebird March 5, 2014

    I remember them because I’m not the average music fan; most people don’t remember them though.

    @Digger Bey

    No one cares what Basic Grammyless Perry thinks. If you think those Banshee screams should have an opinion, then you’re really scrapping the bottom of the barrel in terms of Beyonce praise worshippers.

    Hoeianna is an Singles Artist. If she doesn’t score an number one with this next project. She will be treated like the c*m she licks. #LESSERIANNA

  93. Lovebird March 5, 2014

    And Beyonce is a gimmick who needed a cheap stunt and pornographic videos to sell this little album of hers.

    How is partition doing BTW?

  94. DIGGER BEY March 5, 2014

    Says a lonely c*nt. 4 didn’t have any of that and it outsold Unafloppp in the US and around the same amount WW. #STRUGGLEIANNA??

  95. h2o March 5, 2014

    @ Digger Bey “Hoeianna is an Singles Artist. If she doesn’t score an number one with this next project. She will be treated like the c*m she licks. #LESSERIANNA”

    A singles artist who moves 3.3 million albums worldwide per year? Tours stadiums in Europa, Africa and the Middle East?

    And I know you’ll be trying to deny that all your life, but singles are very important and getting bigger and bigger every day.

    Singles, radio airplay, VEVO, streaming … Welcome to 2014

    Like you’re not even different from a MooRiP stan living in 1902 if you don’t even know singles are important.

  96. slay_hive March 5, 2014

    Well it seems that everyone knows who the Queen is. Time for you pressed heaux to catch up! 😀

  97. DIGGER BEY March 5, 2014

    I get it! Yessssssssssssssssss! @Angrybird is pissed that THE QUEEN did supposedly pornographic. and THE PRAISE IS NEVER ENDING! Well when R**** does pornographic, its *CRICKETS from the Industry** and that sh*t FLOPS LMFAOOOOOOOO

  98. DIGGER BEY March 5, 2014

    H20…… LMAOOOOOOOOO. That’s all do when u address me lmfaooooooooo

  99. RoyalKev March 5, 2014

    Katy slipped! I don’t think she meant to sound shady, but she did. There definitely was some shade, her delivery revealed it. I think she wanted to express that Mariah has left her mark, but referring to Mariah as a “throwback” just sounds offensive. I said it before, I don’t care for any singer passing judgement on their peers (that’s the job of music listeners and consumers). Katy’s opinion could be truthful, but she’s really in no position to subliminally throw any kind of shade Mariah’s way. The jokes write themselves … BUT, if Mairah wasn’t the type to do the same so often it wouldn’t be so many people feeling this is karma.

  100. Suicide Blonde March 5, 2014

    Spin Magazine (January 1996)

    Are there moments when you just say I wish I was Mariah Carey, just singing silly pop songs?

    Madonna: [Laughs] I’d kill myself.
    You’re inevitably called my boy-toy if you go out with me because people can’t imagine that anyone can f****** stand up to me, and it’s a ludicrous idea. I know the majority of Americans think I walk around my house, jodhpurs on and a whip. That I eat men for breakfast and send out my limousine driver to pick up bushels of young men and women, and I let everybody else make my business decisions for me. Even really successful, intelligent men are so f****** scared of me, and buy into the hype. I think a lot go, “no, I can’t be linked with this person, she may overshadow what I do.” So that eliminates a whole ‘nother chunk of people.

    This was the question and the answer that started the feud between these two, i personally don’t think it was a shade, the medias manipulated her words, Mariah was ready to answer with her typical complex of superiority, without thinking if it was accurate or not what the reported was telling her, giving life to a never ending war between both fan bases, Madonna don’t bother to clarify the whole thing, while Mariah keep throwing shades at Madonna whenever she’s bored, i know i stand for a b**** but Mariah must be the most shady woman who has ever graced the music industry + Madonna goes straight to the subject, she doesn’t care, if she wants to bash someone, she makes sure there is a camera in front of her, see (Reductive), Mariah’s words on Madonna has backfired on her, look at things now, and i’m not even talking about success, i’m tlking about IMPACT, an statement of Madonna’s power or should i say CURSE.

    On topic, Katy should never come for people like Mariah, she has yet to prove to have any longevity, see (Lady Gaga’s 5 years career) 🙂

  101. LOL March 5, 2014

    LOL Y’ALL ARE EITHER DUMB OR IN DENIAL.

    THAT COMMENT WAS PURE SHADE. SHE BASICALLY CALLED MARIAH OLD AND A HASBEEN LOL.

  102. Marley March 5, 2014

    Why is Katy dressed more elegantly than Mariah in that photo though. They should both have on the opposed outfits.

  103. Ashley March 5, 2014

    She didn’t lie at all. Beyonce is the Queen of the world right now. Mariah is a has been and there’s nothing wrong with that. Can’t be on top forever.

  104. ***Flawless March 5, 2014

    Yeah dis was shade!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love the respect Beyonce gets from ALL her peers. Even legends. I think all of da times Mariah threw shade is catchin up 2 her now

  105. Katy Can’t Sing For S*** Perry March 5, 2014

    She is a below basic b**** in looks and her music. She should of stuck to writing songs for Kids Bop.

  106. Katy Can’t Sing For S*** Perry March 5, 2014

    I’ll wait for Mariah to reply. She eventually will and it will be LIFE.

  107. Katy Can’t Sing For S*** Perry March 5, 2014

    MC aint fazed. She sitting back counting her receipts and CHECKS.

  108. QUEEN MINAJ♥ March 5, 2014

    But is katy lying though? Beyonce is the biggest artist right now from 2010 to 2014. Why are the hasbeenriah fans so mad?

  109. Theman March 5, 2014

    Do u really think MC gives a shyt about this cartoon network gimmick? The way Katy said it was not the way it was meant.. She tried dressing it up. Y’all know dayum well MC has has success from the start.. Did she not pay attention to “WBT” “SIO” “TMB” “DFAU” “Obsessed” “Beautiful”? All of these smash hits came out during her era.. MC has has success her while career. Sam as for iTunes Ciara nor anyone else can even see those charts.. If she didn’t kiss Beyonce’s a** u would’ve have written an essay about a bunch of nothing.. MARIAH is in a different league from all of these chicks.. iTunes is not the main chart. Has anyone u write about outside of Beyonce even seen a gold album?

  110. QUEEN MINAJ♥ March 5, 2014

    @lovebird you talk a lot of b******* you just need to shut up.

  111. QUEEN MINAJ♥ March 5, 2014

    no body give a f*** about what flopriah did 2000 years ago. let´s talk about this era, how is she doing?

  112. HIMEROS March 5, 2014

    Look, considering the charts, getting a single in the top 5 and keeping it there for a long time isn’t called flopping, applause didn’t flop.

    Work b**** flopped, it never even made it into the top 10.

    ArtPop was still a number 1 album, it’s only a few thousand behind bangerz and basicism.

    Don’t want to come for Mariah, but the whole debacle with “you’re mine”

    Is the new bar to set for flopping.
    She’s a legend and all.
    But yeh

  113. tits mcgee March 5, 2014

    I think it was definite shade on Katy’s part. She should have answered the question with the same diplomacy she gave to Britney and Miley. I think Katy judging Mariah is a bit like if Paula Abdul would shade Aretha! It makes no sense. Legends will ALWAYS be relavent, and bitchess of the moment need to keep it cute

  114. HIMEROS March 5, 2014

    The REAL issue is that Kunty, is pushing it. She’s always been shady, I noticed this at the EMA’s 2013 when she beat lady gaga in best female pop artist and she said

    “I really didn’t expect to win this given who was in the category, but this PROVES…..that I have the BEST FANS EVER” – that whole segment was a shadefest

  115. tits mcgee March 5, 2014

    I like me some Katy, but on the real

    Mariah’s worst songs»»» Katy’s best songs

    *plays ‘shut up’ by Destiny’s Child*

  116. The Real Truth Tea March 5, 2014

    the bottom line is, i would rather listen to You’re Mine, Beautiful and Triumphant (Pulse Remix) , than ANY of Katy Perry’s tunes! she’s released like 3 good songs in her whole Career, Mariah does’nt know how to make bad work full stop! that’s the bottom line i’m always about quality over quantity and Mariah is still the biggest selling female artist of ALL TIME, everyone else can stay pressed cos Hero, Vision of Love and All I Want For Christmas will continue to be played and earn millions when all of us are dead and buried and she will eat cos she wrote them!

  117. StarXavi March 5, 2014

    She wasn’t lying. lol

  118. tits mcgee March 5, 2014

    Edit: plays ‘dot’ (shut up) by destiny’s child

    Lol 😉

  119. Envi March 5, 2014

    As a Beyoncé fan, these Katy compliments don’t win me over. When Bey released her album, Katy was on twitter throwing up all kinds of love. Meh!! I still haven’t forgotten her snide remarks about “Beautiful Liar.” I don’t really give a s*** about what Katy said about Mariah, because I couldn’t care less about her. But I will say that Katy has a mouth on her that she needs to learn how to tame. It’s like all her life she’s gotten away with being a brat and saying whatever pops into her head, regardless to whether or not she should shut up.

    Mariah is still the biggest selling female artist of ALL TIME

    Madonna Louise Ciccone, (born August 16, 1958) is an American singer-songwriter, actress and entrepreneur. One of the world’s greatest cultural icons for over three decades, she has achieved an unprecedented level of power and control for a woman in the entertainment industry.
    Madonna has sold more than 300 million records worldwide and is recognized as the best-selling female recording artist of all time by Guinness World Records.

  121. Rosie March 5, 2014

    LMAO Artpop flopped no matter how the Little Cutters try to spin it. $25 million promo budget only to plummet down the charts after less than 4 months. It will stall at 1.9-2 million worldwide, if that since it only sold 17K on Mediatraffic last week.

  122. king bey March 5, 2014

    How did beyonce end being thrown in the post? lol obsession much…anyway i would not go as far calling mariah carey throwback she is still relevant just not when it comes to music.

  123. Molly March 5, 2014

    Yaaaaas Go Off Stephy! TGJ is so thirsty

  124. Theman March 5, 2014

    MARIAH IS ALWAYS RELEVANT TO MUSIC, BECAUSE OF HER MUSIC.. SHE HAS CLASSICS !!!! Y’ALL LOOK AT ONE SONG & TRY TO DETERMINE SOMEONE’S CAREER LOOOOOOOOOOOOL.. MARIAH IS THAT CHICK !!!!

  125. B. Mike March 5, 2014

    People like Mariah Carey can never be a has-been. Because even when the hits stop rolling, their presence is seen/felt in the younger generation. Mariah’s “hip pop” sound has been lifted by Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Rihanna, and yes, even KATY FREAKING PERRY (Dark Horse).

    So everyone can TRY to shade how Mariah, Janet and Madonna don’t sell like they used to. But every time you look at your current fave, I can guarantee that you’re looking at a part of one of these legends.

    No one is hot forever. NO ONE.

  126. Theman March 5, 2014

    Also, this site gives Beyonce way too much credit.. She isn’t selling as much WW, as she is in the states !!!!

  127. Mark111 March 5, 2014

    MC threw “shade” to other artists through out her career. Now she’s the old one and haven’t been popping since the 8th grade.

    See how she dissed Madonna, yet Whitney said “Madonna works are, if you work as hard as she has or I had, then good things will come.” Whitney never dissed other artists cause she was secure in her talent. MC is lazy.

  128. Absolved March 5, 2014

    The States is the most important market. WW is just icing. The US is the cake, so Bey is good! 😀

  129. L21480 March 5, 2014

    Mariah’s “hip pop” sound was done long before her. Blackbox, C&C Music Factory, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Chaka Khan, Blondie, Jody Watley…even New Kids on the Block was mixing pop and hip hop when Mariah was making a name for herself singing those office radio ballads for secretaries. People kill me trying to cite Mariah as the innovator or curator of pop music mixed with hip hop. Nah, there were MANY doing it before her. She jumped on the trend when it was already starting to become widespread.

  130. Porkriah flopery March 5, 2014

    Mariah Scary is gross and not to mention she looks like a farm animal in heat.

  131. Ajanni March 5, 2014

    It wasn’t just Katy shading Mariah, the hosts were too. They actually laughed at the person who thought Mariah was the biggest entertainer in the world. They couldn’t believe somebody could say something so stupid.

    Since we’re talking about shading, you could also say that she was shading Beyonce too. The Hive has dragged Katy pretty hard and reminded her that Bey is the best in world when Ms. Perry said that her and Rihanna’s collaboration would be epic, unlike Beautiful Liar. So Katy was probably poking fun at that by sarcastically saying that “don’t slander Beyonce” mess.

    It was a fun interview but Ms. Perry is almost 30, so it is well past time to leave childish things behind.

  132. Venus March 5, 2014

    Mariah is irrelevant to todays kids, that’s why lessors drag her left, right and center.

  133. JER March 5, 2014

    I detected… a little shade. I did. But let’s be real, Mariah is a throwback artist to these autotuned hussies. Either way, Mimi is not bothered with her 100 million dollars and 100 million albums sold. I wish Katie and her couple million dollars she’s made for Capitol and her couple million albums sold all the success in the world!

  134. Katy Slayry March 5, 2014

    No1curr about Skunkriah.

  135. peek-ah-boo March 5, 2014

    Today Mariah is Beyonce’s lessor and Mariah will just have to deal with that fact.

  136. Hadley March 5, 2014

    Katy did shade Mariah but I don’t think it was intential to be malicious. Its the truth, Mariah is not the biggest star in the world right now. And we all know Katy loves her some Beyonce she has already called her a living legend as well as stanning hard for her album.

  137. s*** March 5, 2014

    Love your comments! Beyonce cannot get a number one hit, haha.

  138. Jessie March 5, 2014

    Its Beyonces world. We’re just living in it.
    -Anderson Cooper

  139. My Forehead Tho March 5, 2014

    Katy told no lies tho.

    All one has to do is look at last years stats to see Beyonce is the worlds biggest female. She had the highest grossing tour with no supporting album, the highest selling album with only a couple weeks of sales accounted for and was the most searched women in 2013.

    And Mariah is irrelevant as of March 2014.

  140. kwasi March 5, 2014

    There goes de dutty woman SamANTHA again..

  141. ***flawless March 5, 2014

    And Mariah is irrelevant as of March 2014.

    hehe

  142. Touché March 5, 2014

    That was definitely shade. Even the comment about Beyonce was shady. Her mannerisms and tone give it away. I’m not mad at her though because all those little subliminals always come right back tenfold.

  143. Navy Commander March 5, 2014

    Aww still waiting for that bey collab Katy?

  144. IStanForYourFav March 5, 2014

    Hmmm I’m so curious to where this traffic came from? There are 6 maybe 7 comments on Kelis’s post, 26 on Beyoncé’s most recent partition post, and etc. So now we have all of these sudden Madonna, Katy, Lambs, and BeeHive comments popping in out of no where. I tell you Sam, sir you know how to get a check from trafficking.

    P.S. Mariah and company are not has beens. Has beens are people who have no legacy. If you exclude the Memoirs album MC’s legacy is solid. The only thing about all this bragging on Beyoncé and etc is in 5 years your fav will be the same. Only they won’t have the album sales and iconic talent and impact that Whitney, Mariah, Celine, Madonna, and etc had/have. You can’t take away from those people because they are old. That’s not fair. I also don’t think it was shade bc the Birthday song on Prism is dedicated to Mariah.

  145. Fran March 5, 2014

    She was definatley NOT shading Beyonce. Katy is always praising her in interviews. However, the Mariah comment was shady af

  146. Navy Nick March 5, 2014

    Madonna maybe the biggest selling, BUT MARIAH/CELINE/WHITNEY (list goes on) ARE 10 times better singers. Katy actually won me over there (the 1st 10 mins), I didn’t go further, she was sweet, and funny…I can see myself liking KATY, i just do not think her music is all that great, to be over 45 weeks of #1’s, BUT I CANNOT HATE-

  147. quetta March 5, 2014

    Lmao but is she lying though?

  148. JESS March 5, 2014

    OH Whateva! I’m glad Katy shaded Mariah’s stuck up self. Bring that has-been back down to earth. Mariah needs to realize she isn’t what she used to be vocal wise and music wise. She can sit up and brag about her accomplishments all day (which she has earned the right to do) but that won’t take away from the fact that nobody is checking for her washed self in 2014. Mariah needs to just bow out of the game with at least some respect & dignity. P.S. King Bey is sh!ting on all these gerls.

  149. MC!!! March 5, 2014

    2005 and 2009 is throwback??? because those were the times mariah carey dominated the charts then i guess beyonce is throwback too!!! and lady gaga and hell herself!!!! MC=LEGEND

  150. Avi March 5, 2014

    Mariah didn’t “dominate” any chart in 2009. “Obsessed” barely peaked in the top 10 that year, and that was her best of that era.

  151. FutureCIARA March 5, 2014

    I detect No Tea No Shade….

    JUST FACTS!!!

  152. J.E March 5, 2014

    I see no Lie. She is stating a fact base on the current situation in the music business. Not the biggest fan of Beyonce here but i will admit that she is the biggest female singer right now. And as to Katy Perry, Although she doesn’t have that Carey or Aguilerian voice, I like her, she seems sweet, honest and humble. I remember when she told in one interview that she has to side step in the way because she see Christina Arriving on the red carpet because she is too shy and now this, she admitted that she ain’t the biggest star as of the moment and gave it to Beyonce. Lady Gaga would never to that. And Mariah? Well, I never paid attention to her since i was still a Fetus.

  153. gio88 March 6, 2014

    the way she said to me seems shade…

  154. NinidoesLeak March 6, 2014

    Girl please, sit down just because you and Rihanna are illuminatis favoured girls no wonder they pop out no.1 hits. If they named a song fart it would go no.1

    Mariah has all the No.1s back catalogue and she’s still going strong.

  155. #TruthHurts March 6, 2014

    She aint tell no lie tho. BEYONCE is the BIGGEST Female star on Planet. And I’m not saying this in terms of #1 singles or most records sold..
    Here’s a fun fact, I used to live in Africa for some years, and only a few people know who Mariah is or even heard the name “Mariah Carey” in their existence, however everyone knew who Beyonce was LITERALLY even the villagers (those with no T.V’s or internet or radio), whether its just by her name or by her music and everything. Beyonce’s name is extremely familiar to people in Africa and I’m pretty sure some other parts of the world as well.

    But what I know is, if you created a poll and asked people in Africa to name 5 familiar american musicians, here’s how it would turn out:
    1.Micheal Jackson
    2.Beyonce
    3.Rihanna
    4.Whitney Houston
    5.Janet Jackson/Celine Dion

  156. Metzo March 6, 2014

    Don’t blame Katy Perry for telling the truth. Beyonce is THE most Influential female on earth right now. And while Mariah is and always will be a legend, she is not that big anymore since the late 2000’s. Beyonce came in 2003 and ravaged all of them other girls for the rest of 2000’s and 2010’s. She literally had no competion. NONE (which really explains her multiple Grammy wins compared to Mariah’s where she had lots of competition; Tina Turner, Celine Dion, Patti, Madonna, Aretha, ect…)

    Beyonce is in her own lane. And I agree with the fellow above me. Beyonce is HUGE in South Africa and West Africa. She is GLOBAL.

  157. Christian Bale’s Wart March 6, 2014

    That was shade, and correct shade at that. Correct in that she shaded correctly. That was a very rude thing for her to say considering that Mariah’s career is ongoing, but whatever. I’m not a fan of either woman, but I can say that Katy and her kind are the McDonalds of the music industry. Not exactly good, not exactly “real,” but quick, easy, and cheap. And that was my own shade.

  158. Jesso March 6, 2014

    The REAL shade was that female presenter. In fact she straight DISSED her.

  159. Tee0705 March 7, 2014

    Mariah had said this in response to Madonna saying she would rather kill herself than be Mariah Carey. Mandonna started the whole thing.

  160. Tee0705 March 7, 2014

    All these comments about how Mariah hasn’t been relevant in the 2000’s are ridiculous. Did you forget emancipation of MiMi which won multiple awards and We belong together was song of the decade. Mariah also won song of the decade for the 90’s. Beyonce and Katy are so relevant that they can’t even get song of the decade once lmao I like Beyonce’s music but I will never think she is better than Mariah. And Katy is not even in their league. She belongs with lady gaga, Rihanna, Miley etc Their vocal talent is mediocre at best. They get hits for dance tracks and being slutty. I like their songs but to choose favorites I’d go for a powerhouse ballad with beautiful lyrics to match over a dance track any day. It’s sad that this generation doesn’t appreciate the talent of people like Mariah, Whitney, Celine, etc. Just my humble opinion.

  161. Kieran March 9, 2014

    Dont you worry Mariah will be back on top, Looks shes been away for awhile due to the fact that in 2010 she released her second Christmas album and had 2 children at the top of 2011! She then did jenny craig which got her body back at the end of 2011, So she released a mega hit christmas album, Had two babies and then got her amazing body back,2011,2012,2013 she has been working on her album which will be released this May, 2014, She released Beautiful whcich was number 1 in over 40 countries and the US she made it into the top 20, still a good job and was still a good hit, She got 18 million dollars in 2013 just for 1 season of American Idol, shes Been busy making a new album, Having 2 kids, Getting her body back releasing a christmas album and getting ready for a come back, Beautiful was a great lead single, Your Mine hasnt had the best promotion but I can just imagine her next single will be a hit, Her song thirsty sounds promosising a good song with a good video is all it takes for Mariah to be back on top and all you haters will shut up, just wait for the new album, the new songs the new music videos, live performances etc I just know she has something amazing up her sleeve!

  162. 4Idiots March 10, 2014

    Please give the full receipt when you’r trying to do a little read. Madonna couldn’t keep Mariah’s name out of her mouth and that is why they asked Mariah at this interview what she thought of Madonna. I know you’re probably working with less than half a brain and have no real educaitonal background, but come on, YouTube does more than half the work for what it would take to form a sturdy assertion.
