The New York Post reports Jennifer Lopez was the reason Mariah was sent over the edge. Mariah had sampled Firecracker by Japan’s Yellow Magic Orchestra when she recorded Loverboy six months ago but freaked after J. Lo released I’m Real with the same sample.
Mariah thought ex-hubby Tommy Mottola was behind the stealing of the sample and passing it off to his Sony prodigy Lopez.
During her interview w/ Allure in June, Carey ripped Lopez responding to writer Vanessa Grigoriadis’ revelation she had interviewed Lopez saying, “I bet that was really intellectually stimulating. I bet you could just see the depth in her eyes.”
As far as Lopez’s claim of being able to get 8 hours of sleep a night, Mariah retorted, “If I had the luxury of not actually having to sing my own songs, I’d do that too.”
