Mariah Carey Talks Ariana Grande, Madonna, Beyonce & More

Published: Tuesday 29th Apr 2014 by Sam

Mariah Carey is leaving no stone unturned on the promotional run for her semi-surprise of a new album.

Due any moment now (or “late May”, depending on which member of the singer’s team one speaks to), the set has seen the diva cover a myriad of magazines and will see her kick off the Today Show Summer Concert Series – as reported earlier today.

The 44-year-old’s press run also included a phone interview with international outlet Papel Pop.

During the light-hearted chat,  Ms. Carey-Cannon was quizzed about her thoughts on Ariana Grande (who many deem the new…her), as well as Madonna, Beyonce, Lady GaGa, and more. Renown for her razor-sharp wit, and even sharper shade, what response did MC offer?

Find out below…

During a game of “which do you prefer”, the singer answered (when asked ‘Ariana Grande or Miley Cyrus’)…

“I don’t listen to Pop music, so I wouldn’t know. So, I’ll have to go with my daughter Monroe. She’s killing the game and she’s not even three years old.”

Hit “Play” below for the rest…

Great to see Mariah leave the trademark shade on the back-burner. She was refreshingly warm (for the most part). That said, all these elitist claims of “not listening to what’s in” doesn’t help the aura of disconnected diva that seems to trail her these days. Especially problematic given the chart positions of her latest releases.

As appreciators of her talent, who do actually want to see her do well, we feel her PR M-O moving forward should be “achieved, yet humble diva”. This elitist gimmick she tends to peddle won’t work in an era that is increasingly rewarding relate-ability.

    Mariah is Mariah! Hate her or love her, she is and will forever be a legend. For everyone who came after her legacy. Talk s***, make fun of her all you want. She has nothing to prove.

    I will be buying her album. Whenever I comes out.

  3. QUEEN Mariah GODrey April 29, 2014

    “We love everybody” that’s a TRADEMARK shade of Queen Mariah when she does not want to discuss the lessers


  4. loveides April 29, 2014

    She is having that kardashian-syndrome when she is talking. I hate that.

  5. QUEEN Mariah GODrey April 29, 2014

    She’s just on a vocal rest.

    • Mike Mike August 29, 2014

      mariah carey is no queen of anything. she is a fake talent created by studio magic. She CANNOT sing live and always has an excuse when she tries. a washed up has been who thinks she is better than anyone else. YOU know nic cannon listens to madonna when she is not around.

  6. Kelly hoeland April 29, 2014

    Mooriah Cowry!!

  7. Keri April 29, 2014

  9. MusicFan April 29, 2014

    Mariah please get Kim Kardashian out of your vocal box…At least Mariah doesn’t sing like she talks ugh…


  10. Ratedx(love is love) April 29, 2014

    I am a huge Mariah fan..borderline stan for her….but you’ll rarely catch me on one of her post defending her..why?

    1.she’s a legend, the bish can flop and flop after flop, she is still going to be a legend

    2.mariah is worth half a billion doing nothing..making paper off the songs she actually wrote herself..not add a coma, or change he to she..she actually wrote the whole song.

    Mariah’s fans and stans don’t really need to defend her all the time..her work can actually speak for it self..not that smoke and mirrors, and inflation bullcrap..

    • Diamond Princess April 29, 2014

      Lmao @ the “she actually writes her songs and doesn’t just chamge he to she or add a coma.” Throwing major shade at Thiefonce lol!
      I agree COMPLETELY!!!

    • Terny April 29, 2014

      gurl sometimes you have to slap ’em h8trz in the face wiv all her accomplishments so they don’t forget who the REAL Queen is MARIAH CAREY nuff sed

  11. Mark111 April 29, 2014

    If you do your homework, you’ll find that Mariah hates on every young vocalist that came after her. From Xtina to Grande. I think the cow is jealous cause these other ladies can sing LIVE.

      • XtinaTheDiva April 30, 2014

        Artists never sing live at Wetten Dass…

    • Stephy April 29, 2014

      Mariah Carey has NEVER hated on Xtina or Ariana…

      What exactly did she say BAD about Xtina or Ariana?

      Also, when asked about Beyonce (who came after her) she said she loves & respect her.

      Mariah Carey has sung LIVE many times in her career so stop idiot…

  12. Ratedx(love is love) April 29, 2014

    you see all the time other stan bases defending their fav on every post even post that aint got ish to do with their favs..why?

    because of all the smoke and mirrors,

    if you have to defend your fav all the time, trust me she/he aint all that

    because their work cannot speak for them..

    when I say work I mean real work, real numbers…

  13. CherylSoldier April 29, 2014

    Screaming at the gaga minaj response. But gaga is way
    More talented.

  14. CherylSoldier April 29, 2014

    And she should start listening to pop music so that she
    Can maybe sell more than 56k of a single in 3 months

    • BishuisCRAY! April 29, 2014

      #Beautiful went platinum and it wasn’t pop. Whatchu talkin about?

      • TJ May 1, 2014

        Not pop? What’chu listenin’ to? It’s one of her most pop-sounding tracks in years.

  15. Dante April 29, 2014

    I hate mariah carey so much. And im not afraid to say it and now the Mariah stans are attacking me on twitter. HAHAHAHAH

  16. HAHAHA April 29, 2014

    Oh believe me she knows who Ariana and Miley are. She studies their craft all day and night to find new tricks and only wishing she could!

    • BishuisCRAY! April 29, 2014

      Ariana Grande copied her.

  17. mixedupboy April 29, 2014

    Stop it Mariah! You used to be more humble 🙁

  18. Aaron April 29, 2014

    Mariah Carey’s ‘You’re Mine’ Crowns Dance Club Songs Chart

    • CherylSoldier April 29, 2014

      But why can’t it sell 60k? Her single is selling less
      Than Ciara’s album.

  19. Lovebird April 29, 2014


  20. metzo April 29, 2014

    I cant view the clip 🙁 . It says the video is private :'(

  21. gio88 April 29, 2014

    this is her mistake , she should listen to different music , and pop music could help her career right now…

  22. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 29, 2014

    I know Slayriah is going to have a meltdown after this…

  23. IStanForYourFav April 29, 2014

    MC is Queen of Shade, because NO ONE can shade like Mother Aretha. She doesn’t give a f*** who you are, if she wants to shade you, she WILL shade TF OUTTA YOU… Here’s a funny video though.

  24. CherylSoldier April 29, 2014

    I just wanna know why a mariah Carey single has done
    Less after 3 months than Ciara’s first week album sales.

    • Stephy April 29, 2014

      Because the song sucks & is boring!

      I just wanna know who the f**** is Cheryl?

      • FutureCIARA April 29, 2014

        Ooop! 0_0

      • CherylSoldier April 29, 2014

        You keep copying and pasting the same responses. All you need to know is that she’s selling 5 times as much as your fav in the UK, not the US but the UK. have several and come harder.

  25. Angel April 29, 2014

    LOL love Mariah Carey. Both of those kids are annoying as hell so why not choose your own. #It’sLikeThatYall

  26. FutureCIARA April 29, 2014

    Cheryl stans might want to keep it really cute!!

    Perched here acting like your fav has arrived….

    I been catching that slick shade lately.

  27. FutureCIARA April 29, 2014

    I really enjoy Mariah albums, so I wont keep talking about her until her album comes out!

  28. S****** Blonde April 30, 2014

    The video is private, can somebody tell me, what does she said about the Queen?

    • Magnum April 30, 2014

      • S****** Blonde April 30, 2014

        I mean the Queen of Pop MADONNA, not the Queen of Thatgrapejuice, thanks.

  29. Dossome April 30, 2014

    • S****** Blonde April 30, 2014
