Mariah Sings Back To Eminem
2009-06-17 by Lestrade | 48 Comments

Mariah Carey responds to Eminem's remarks about the two dating and Em wanting her back, despite seemingly self-racist husband Nick Cannon having a say. She responds to his rap by singing a tune of her own, "Obsessed".
(Not to be confused, Obsessed is a movie that came out this year, but it was Beyonce who was in it, not Carey. What? You don't know the difference between them at this point?)

Eminem first raps in "Bagpipes": "Mariah, what ever happened to us?/ Why did we have to break up…/ Nick Cannon better back the fuck up./ I’m not playing, I want her back, you punk" Eminem raps in "Bagpipes".

Carey fires back with Auto-Tune and synths galore: "You’re delusional, boy, you’re losing your mind/ It must be weed, it must be the E…/ Why are you so obsessed with me?/ Lying that you’re sexing me...Telling the world how much you miss me, but we never were so why you trippin’"
If that wasn't enough, Mariah denies the rapper of his pride: "You’re a mom & pop, I’m a corporation. I’m a press conference, you’re a conversation."

You can hear the single on Mariah's official website: www.mariahcarey.com
Whether or not ''obsessed" is the right word to describe Eminem, it's pretty clear what his marketing strategy is. Mission accomplished.

I love it when two artists who are no longer relevant still think that they are. It's adorable.

It's time for Em to come back by writing a half-assed Kill You pt.2

What are hell are you talking about Thor? Relapse debuted at #1, as did Carey's last album. Take a wild guess where this is going to start.

That said this is the worst single Carey has ever put out. She should string up and quarter whoever produced it.

Metallica always hits #1 when a new album of theirs comes out but they haven't been relevant in over fifteen years. Album sales doesn't necessarily mean you still matter.

Laurie,
No, pretentious indie people think they don't matter. That doesn't directly say much about the quality, but it obviously means they're relevant.

In the field of entertainment, huge sales matter. Don't kid yourself

Who wants to welcome this clown to reality? If you are putting millions upon millions of dollars in your pockets, and the pockets of many others, you matter. Just because you sit behind your monitor and say it aint so...doesn't mean it's true. Then again...half the people on this site don't have a clue about industry logic.

Industry-wise they may matter but music-wise they already showed their best and can't do much more.

"best" is subjective while profit is tangible. I'll stick with what can be proven.

These lyrical fights are often pretty sweet to hear. I mean, it's amusing anyways. I didn't know she married Nick Cannon though...I know that dude from Nickelodeon or whatever when I was a kid, stuff has changed... (and racist what? lol.)

Both of these "artists" need to go away forever they are both awful, and Eminem's song was probably a joke anyway, anyone who takes rap seriously is an idiot...

MC should've just said:

Na na na na / na na na na / hey hey hey / goodbye

Anyway E really needs to stop embarassing his child and be man and move on. He's almost as bad as Justin Timberlake who still whines over Britney after how many years since they broke up.

"You’re a mom & pop, I’m a corporation. I’m a press conference, you’re a conversation."


Pathetic how she's proud to be a marketed product.
For that lyric, she has made herself the biggest industry tool ever.

And she's ugly befugly too, whatever people say

Let's call this a successful marketing ploy by Eminem.

Or perhaps they're both in on it to boost each others' sales, which is also feasible.

Em: 'Hey Mariah, I'm going to pretend we dated in a song that makes little sense (but DOES have a wicked beat), and you pretend to bitch about it with retarded lyrics about how you're a corporation tool or something. Sound fresh?'

MC: 'Sounds awesome!'

*Immediately after this conversation, Mariah brought Marshall ice cream before locking herself up in the looney bin once and for all.*

Dont these people ever learn? Eminem says things just to cause reactions and stir up controversy. Ignore him and he will move on to something else, not respond which will of course lead him to respond back in the future. I didnt even take the lines in Bagpipes to be anything serious, just Em being Em and poking fun at past situations to cause reactions and obviously it worked. Either way the song was sweet.
