Mariah Carey is getting candid.
The singer stopped by ‘Watch What Happens Live’ to talk with host Andy Cohen about the relationship with her mother, which version of ‘Loverboy’ she likes better, and more.
Her words below:
Speaking about her relationship with her mother, she said:
“That’s its own thing. When she decides, if she decides, to read it [‘The Meaning of Mariah Carey’] I hope she feels OK about it. There’s certain things about her I have always acknowledged: her talent as an opera singer and the fact that she encouraged me to believe in myself. I don’t agree with everything she has done with her life, I don’t always understand it, but I’ll always take care of her. I still take care of her to this day.”
The singer also talked about the infamous ‘Firecracker’ sample that got swiped from the original version of ‘Loverboy’ and revealed which version of the song she prefers, saying:
“I never really heard the other song that it was in. I only heard about it because the sample was used after I had already used it, so I had to change the entire song. I’m actually glad it happened. I like the version with Cameo better.”
On her rumored Madonna collaboration for the original soundtrack of ‘Glitter’ called ‘Angel of Fire’ she said:
“I have no idea what that’s about. Sounds cool. I never heard of it.”
On ‘Verzuz’ the singer played coy, saying:
“I enjoy watching the verses battles, but it’s not about battles for me.”
