Mariah Carey has denied her ‘Obsessed’ music video is mocking Eminem.
The singer is seen dressed as a male in the video, which fans assumed was Mariah making fun of the rapper – in retaliation to his track ‘Bagpipes from Baghdad’, which mocks Mariah.
In a message on her Twitter page, Carey clears up any stories. She writes: “I am NOT at any point in the video playing a specific person. I’m dressed as a ‘stalker’ in 3 different ensembles.”
Check out the video and tell us what you think:
As for the character which many felt was an Eminem spoof, Mariah explains: “It was fun playing ‘JoJo’. The photographer is played by the world famous, legendary…(Guess who!). Hint: he is mentioned several times in one of my favorite movies ‘The Devil Wears Prada’..”
Her hubby Nick Cannon also denied any links to Mathers at the start of the month, when he said: “My wife doesn’t beef. She’s Mariah Carey. She’s not beefin’, she’s a vegetarian.”
“To be completely honest, she did the record ’cause she’s a huge fan of this movie ‘Mean Girls,’ and there’s a line in the movie where one of the girls is like, ‘Why are you so obsessed with me?'”
