Shade! Jennifer Lopez continued her feud with Mariah Carey at the Billboard Awards. J-Lo decided that Mimi’s performance was the perfect time to send off a text message or two — while completely ignoring Mariah!
The 2015 Billboard Music Awards had plenty of eye-catching moments and attention grabbing spectacles. Yet, when it was time for Mariah Carey, 45, to go on stage, there was one person who couldn’t be bothered to watch – her longtime rival, Jennifer Lopez, 45! J-Lo was caught gazing down at her phone during Mariah’s performance!
Jennifer Lopez Disses Mariah Carey: Looks At Phone Instead Of Performance
The Diva-grade shade was thrown during the May 17 ceremony in Las Vegas, reports the Daily Mail. When everyone was watching Mimi sing her songs “Infinity’ and “Vision of Love,” J-Lo was busy looking at her phone. Cameras caught Jennifer checking whatever was on Instagram or Tumblr — anything but Mariah!
Dang. It’s one thing to diss your rival – even going so far to make a song with a corresponding epic video, like Taylor Swift did. But to just ignore someone and be busy with your phone, J-Lo? That’s cold.
The J-Lo/Mariah version of “Bad Blood” has been going on for a while. During a Jun 2014 appearance on Watch What Happens Live!, J-Lo denied the feud, acknowledging that “I know from back in the day, I’ve read things that she’s said about me that were not the greatest, but we have never met.”
“I would love to meet her and I would love to be friends with her,” she added, though her actions say different!
Meanwhile, that month, Mariah told Larry King that there are rivalries in show business, but said that “I don’t think [J-Lo] has anything to do with me. My whole thing is singing, writing songs…her thing is something different.”
Shade! The shade of it all!
Even without J-Lo’s diss, Mariah was having a rough night at the Billboard Music Awards. Though she brought the Diva attitude and glamour to her performance, her vocals still had a hard time hitting the high notes. Yikes! Hopefully, these struggles will be over when Mariah eventually starts her Las Vegas residency.
What do you think of J-Lo’s looking at her phone during Mariah’s performance, HollywoodLifers?
