Mariah Carey posted a message on her Twitter, denying rumor that the male stalker she plays in upcoming "Obsessed" music video is a portrayal of Eminem. "I am NOT at any point in the video playing a specific person. I'm dressed as a 'stalker' in 3 different ensembles," so she wrote.

In another post, Mariah explained about the male character she portrays, "It was fun playing 'JoJo'(the stalker/doorman/photographer's asst) The photographer is played by the world famous, legendary...(Guess who!)." Minutes later, she gave another clue, "Hint: he is mentioned several times in one of my favorite movies 'The Devil Wears Prada'.."

Prior to Mariah's denial, her husband Nick Cannon has debunked speculation suggesting she wanted to fire back at the Slim Shady who previously mocked her in a song titled "Bagpipes in Baghdad". He told MTV, "People keep saying ['Obsessed'] was directed at certain people. To be completely honest, she did the record 'cause she's a huge fan of this movie 'Mean Girls' and there's a line in the movie where one of the girls is like, 'Why are you so obsessed with me?' She says that at the beginning of the song, and that's where the concept came from. But you know, art imitates life."

"Obsessed" is one of the songs set to be listed in Mariah's upcoming new album "Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel" which is slated for August 25 U.S. release. Its music video is directed by Brett Ratner, and will be debuted in "America's Got Talent" on July 15.

Beside filming the video for the song's original version, Mariah Carey also shot a video for its remix version. The singer revealed, "So, there are 2 videos for 'Obsessed' the original, and the remix feat. Gucci Mane. Both have a storyline where I play several parts." On what to expect from this video, a source close to the video production shared, "There is definitely new hotness in the Remix that is not in the original."

No one is stupid Miss Carey. By the way, the video is horribly stupid and you have just committed career suicide with this kiddie mess. Whitney is going to drop you honey. See what a real woman is!
