While Eminem has managed to piss off more people in his short career than most people do in a lifetime, he should not have messed with Mariah Carey. His offense – he’s been playing voicemail messages that she left for him back in 2001 during his concerts on his “Anger Management” tour.
During one “scene” in his concerts, Eminem is talking to the audience when Carey’s song, “We Belong Together,” comes on. Eminem berates the deejay and then Carey’s messages start to play. “I heard you were getting back with your ex-wife,” she says. “Why won’t you see me? Why won’t you call me? You’re not calling me . . .”
As the messages play, Eminem pretends to vomit into a prop toilet and then launches into his song, “Puke,” which has lines like, “You make me sick.”
Pals of Carey say Eminem’s anger toward the beautiful diva stems from the winter of 2001, when she asked for his help on her “Charmbracelet” album. Eminem claims they had an affair, which she denies. Eminem was annoyed when Carey wrote a song about their relationship on the album which noted: “You should have never intimated we were lovers. I gotta break it to you delicately — who’s gonna love you when it’s over? Who’s gonna care?”
Eminem hit back in 2002, telling Rolling Stone the two had a brief affair and added: “On the whole personal level, I’m not really feeling it. I just don’t like her as a person.” A friend of the diva fumed to us yesterday: “First of all, that is not her voice on the ‘messages’ played in the concert — it is an imposter! She is considering suing him for defamation. They did hang out, but it was Eminem who followed her around.
So Mariah claims she never slept with Eminem, while he claims they did. Mariah claims he was obsessed with her, Eminem claims she was obsessed with him. Who to believe?
