JLo has been addressing 'feud' with Mariah Carey

Jennifer Lopez is busy promoting something or other this week (her new Las Vegas residency), hence why she's got herself quite a few TV spots. One of the hot topics of choice of her interviewers is her alleged feud with fellow songstress Mariah Carey.

Firstly, here she is on Watch What Happens Live, and - when she's asked about Mariah - she doesn't plead the fifth. Back in 2015, at the Billboard awards - Jennifer was clocked texting during Mariah's performance. Here's her explanation: "There isn’t [a feud]. I’ll tell you why. Let me tell you something. OK, first of all, that was not fair with the texting thing because I watched a lot of it. It was a long performance, OK? I watched most of it... I may have looked down for one second, and people were like, ‘Look at her! Look at her!’” the multi-hyphenate continued. “So not fair. So not fair. I was watching her the whole time."

While she may have watched "most" of Mariah's Billboard performance, she hasn't attended her Las Vegas show as yet. When host Andy Cohen brought up the fact that Lopez has attended Britney's Vegas show and Shania Twain's Vegas show, Lopez had to defend herself yet again: "Well, you have to realize, I think last year when it started, I was already here in New York filming Shades of Blue and doing [American] Idol on the weekends. I didn’t have a lot of free time! And I started preparing my own [Vegas show]. You know, I don’t think there’s been a time where I could have seen it.” She's also got twins.

Yesterday, Lopez had to defend herself yet again, this time while on Wendy Williams’ talk show. After being called "super competitive" Williams then asks if she went to "check out the competition", and - to be fair to Jennifer - she says "I went to a bunch of shows, I didn't go to Mariah's as it wasn't on at the time." Williams then quips "Who?" before elaborating "No, I'm playing, because that's what Mariah said about Jennifer one time."


While wringing her fingers, Lopez says "She does say that... She's forgetful I guess. I dunno, we've met many times. I don't know, I don't know her that well."

Nicely pivoted, Jennifer, keep up the good work!
