Mariah Carey delivered another iconic moment when she reacted awkwardly to Jennifer Lopez’s music during a NYE interview, fueling ongoing speculation about her “feud”

Love doesn’t cost anything Singer Jennifer performed live in Times Square last night to ring the doorbell in 2021, coincidentally just as Mariah was speaking to Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper in a live interview with CNN, who broadcast in the area. p>

At some point during the interview, Mariah, 50, got a little distracted by the background noise that Jennifer, 51, was performing

“What’s going on in the background, I’m listening to music?” asked the singer from We Belong Together curiously

Mariah’s subsequent reaction – or lack of it – completely stole the moment when she continued to keep that steady smile on her face without the slightest recognition of Jennifer

It didn’t go unnoticed by viewers who pointed out the awkwardness of Mariah and Jennifer, who aren’t exactly friends

“Not Jlo performing while Mariah Carey is speaking Andy AINT S ** T because he mentions Jlo lmaooooo,” one fan exclaimed

“Enter JLo and CNN is still talking to Mariah? Am i hearing correctly? “One tweeted in the tense moment

One viewer was enjoying the drama and said, “You can’t make this up Mariah on #CNNnye exactly at the same time that JLo is performing on #RockinEve”’

One also wallowed in the shadows and tweeted: “CNN interviewing Mariah Carey while JLo is in the background is the cooks kiss that we had to end this year”

The so-called feud between Jennifer and Mariah goes back to the 00s, when Mariah famously replied in an interview when she was asked about her pop star: “I don’t know her”

Mariah then spoke about the tension for the first time in her recent essay The Meaning of Mariah Carey, in which she wrote, “After Sony heard my new song with the same sample, I hurried to do one single for another female entertainer on her label (whom I don’t know) ‘
