Imaginary Catfight in My Head: Leona vs. Mariah

leona-mimi.JPG

"They've been comparing people to me for longer than I can remember. I'm just like, 'Whatever.' If they're the new me can they come and do my interviews for me or get in the studio and write one of my songs? Seriously though, I love everybody, it's not a competition for me."

That's Mariah "Black for the Remix" Carey on Leona Lewis. Disappointingly, the above statement was peppered with just enough class and good-naturedness for it not to be taken as an outright diss. If Mariah knew what it was like to have to dig into the crack of the Internet everyday and find something interesting to blog about on this site, perhaps she'd be a bit more charitable with talking out of the side of her mouth. Now I'm forced to re-interpret the remarks and make them nastier.

"They've been comparing people to me for longer than I can remember."

Translation: "These basic broads bore me. Do you realize who I am? Yawn!"

"I'm just like, 'Whatever.'"

Translation: "I'm just like, 'Whatever.'" (That portion of the quote was sassy enough without my input.)

"If they're the new me can they come and do my interviews for me or get in the studio and write one of my songs?"

Translation: "I just de-throned Elvis. Do that and we'll talk. Oh wait, you're just coming out with music. Talk to me in another fifteen years when I have three times the #1 hits as you. KTHXBAI."

"Seriously though, I love everybody."

Translation: "Leyora who?"

"It's not a competition for me."

Translation: "I have trouble interpretting the comparisons as a form of flattery, so I'll just assume people are trying to pit us against each other. That's the only kind of discourse I can comprehend since I've straightened my hair and colored it blonde."

I make my own fun.

  1. *smh* did you actually listen to the interview where she said that? from your 'take' on it, it's obvious that you didn't.
    when asked about how it felt to have people label Leona as the 'next' Mariah, she responded by saying that "people have been doing that (comparisons) for as long as she can remember....and that it's one thing to say somebody is LIKE Mariah as opposed to being the NEXT Mariah. because, if that's the case, then they can feel free to come stand in for her in interviews and in the studio, so that she can get another 3 hours of sleep."
    people always tryna make something out of nothing. it's one thing to compare the two...and it's another thing to prepare one for succession...as if the 'older' version is no longer needed.
    you're related to Perez, aren't u?

  2. *SMH* Did YOU read what I wrote? From the title of the post to the end of the entry I make it very clear that I was having fun with what she said. I even went as far as stating in the intro that her words weren't negative. Clearly, this isn't the website for you, as I seem to be writing in Swahili or Mandarin Chinese or some other language or text you have trouble comprehending.
    Am I related to Perez? Are you retarded? Kick rocks.

  3. Well damn! I was coming to comment on this: "If Mariah knew what it was like to have to dig into the crack of the Internet everyday..." but I see there's all types of effery jumping off up in here.
    Reading truly is fundamental.

  4. Butta, let me add to that last statement because people think they reading but can't comprehend so "Comprehension is essential"

  5. lmao...this was great! Been keeping up on the competition between these two and you do a great job of dramatizing it with your tongue planted firmly in cheek. great stuff!
