Things weren’t so happy with Cannon and gossip blogger Perez Hilton regarding Mariah’s new single ‘Obsessed’, which hasn’t been performing well. Cannon said on Twitter (@nickcannon):
And don’t worry about Perez y’all… Just learn from his parents mistakes and use birth control. LOL!
@PEREZHILTON Real artist don’t make music for the $. There is more to life than income. My wife’s new album is an incredible piece of art!

Mariah Carey is out with the music video to her new single ‘Obsessed’, the first release from the pop singer’s twelfth studio album ‘Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel’, out August 21st via Island Records. The Brett Ratner directed video features the 39-year-old as herself and dressed as a man in the role of a stalker. Watch it via YouTube below.
Mariah Carey checked in with fans on her Twitter (@mariahcarey), explaining what they can expect for the two videos from her new single ‘Obsessed’. Carey writes:
So, there are 2 videos for “Obsessed” The original,and the remix feat. Gucci Mane. Both have a storyline where I play several parts. I am NOT at any point in the video playing a specific person. I’m dressed as a “stalker”in 3 different ensembles.
Anyway, again, the video for the original version of “Obsessed” debuts on “America’s got talent”(hosted by my hubby Nick Cannon). And the remix featuring Gucci Mane is being edited tonite and will be out asap!
I really had fun doing these videos for “Obsessed”. It was fun playing “JoJo”(the stalker/doorman/photographer’s asst) 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”..
Yes, it is THE Patrick Demarchelier! He was so nice to make a cameo. “I have Patrick!” (Said like Emily Blunt in “devil wears Prada” lol)
