A Mariah Carey interview never disappoints. Sometimes she’s in a bubble bath, other times she’s on an elliptical in heels — either way, a good time will be had by all. For this interview with V Magazine the legendary singer wore lingerie while shading the Grammys and her long time nemesis Nicki Minaj. Anyone can get.
Now that MiMi has teamed up with RocNation she’s back in the studio and working on new music. But, if you thought she would be super pressed to walk across that Grammys stage in 2019, think again. The Elusive Chanteuse has no desire to fit into the rigors of the Recording Academy’s timeline, nor will she transform into someone else to get their attention.
“In the music business, if you care about the Grammys and submitting your stuff before a certain time frame, you want a single out in the summer, and then you want to have your record [out] before the Grammys [consideration] deadline, which has changed,” Carey told V mag. “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn. I mean, I have five Grammys. That’s cute. There’s people that have been doing this half the time that have twice as many [Grammys]. I won two Grammys the first year I started, but after that, [the Grammys] are like, ‘We don’t go with the people that are selling a lot of records and are popular; we’re gonna go the opposite way.’ So I got screwed out of certain years. I wasn’t bitter about it. I was just like, okay, well, I guess I’m not standing here barefoot onstage singing and trying to go a certain way. I’m just me.”
Oh, but MiMi wasn’t done. When the interviewer, Stephen Gan, complimented Carey on her honesty and transparency, the songstress took it one step further.
“I mean, tell me the truth. If you were to see me walking around suddenly with, like, I don’t know, suspenders, baggy pants, probably there’d be a neon bra with a low-slung tuxedo shirt, some green hair, probably little shorts, some high boots—wouldn’t you be like, what the hell is she going for? Yet if somebody else did it, it’d be like, oh my gosh, genius, it’s heaven. [Laughs.] I’m not trying to make fun of anybody’s way of analyzing something. Personally, I don’t care, I like what I like. So I feel like it’s trying too hard if I suddenly was like, I think I’ll do the pink hair thing. No! I actually like my hair my color. Like, I’ll go different shades of blonde and dark blonde, but that’s not changing things drastically.”
Read between the lines, y’all. “I’ll do the pink hair thing…”, PINK HAIR!! Shots fired and Nicki better duck. It’s no secret that MiMi and the “Pinkprint” rapper have had beef since their American Idol days, but by all accounts we thought it was over. Guess not.
Wonder what Minaj will have to say about that not so subliminal shot.
