Jennifer Lopez spoke to professional pot stirrer Wendy Williams about Vegas, onesies, and that time when reporters asked Mariah Carey about Jennifer Lopez, and she responded, “I don’t know her.”
Can we take you back to 2000 when they both were as popular as frosty pink lip gloss, and this was happening for a hot second? People painted Mariah as a diva for that response, but it IS possible she was answering honestly about not being friendly with the Iggy Azalea collaborator.
But evidently, Mariah’s has been saying this a lot according to Jennifer Lopez, and when Jennifer Lopez offered that she didn’t see Mariah in concert in Vegas because, “at the time she wasn’t playing she hadn’t started yet,” Wendy seized the opportunity.
Wendy Williams jokingly said “who?” joking about how that’s what Mariah says about Jennifer. Jennifer responded, in the sweetest, most humorous way possible. “She does say that. She’s forgetful, I guess. I don’t know. We’ve met many times. I dont know. I don’t know her that well.”
So now, she has said “I don’t know her that well,” which is a variation on, “I don’t know her,” with a different meaning. Playful, brisk, and a little confused. But she does understand that Mariah is a person with observations and feelings. Jennifer seems totally innocent in this whole mix ’em up. And that’s how it’s done.
