AceShowbiz - Mariah Carey may have trolled Eminem again while celebrating "Obsessed" anniversary. To mark 12 years since the release of her hit track, which was reportedly directed at the rapper, the R&B diva shared a video in which she seemed to spoof the Slim Shady.
On Wednesday, June 16, the "Always Be My Baby" songstress posted on her Instagram page a video of her doing the popular "Wipe It Down" TikTok challenge. The throwback clip was taken from her 2020 vault as she explained in the caption, "Just for laughs... from last year's lockdown when all I did was wipe tings down #HappyAnniversaryObsessed."
In the video, Mariah dressed comfortably in a pink robe with a bright green face mask and her hair in rollers while she wiped down the mirror in front of her. After wiping the mirror several times, she turned into a glamorous version of herself with a low-cut gold dress and bouncy blow dry.
The 52-year-old then quoted the lyrics to her song "Obsessed" before she changed her outfit to mimic the male stalker, who was widely believed to be based on Eminem, in her music video for the song.
The video quickly garnered praises from Mariah's celebrity followers, including Anitta and B Scott, for her commitment to the skit. "Queer Eye" star Jonathan Van Ness also wrote in the comment section, "ICONIC we aren't worthy," before the clip was removed from her page.
Mariah and Eminem's long-running feud began in 2002 after the rapper claimed that he had a six-month fling with the "Hero" hitmaker, a claim which she strongly denied. Em referenced the fling in his 2002 songs "Superman" and "When the Music Stops" and 2009's "The Warning". He also threw shade at Mariah's then-husband Nick Cannon in "Bagpipes From Baghdad", to which she responded with "Obsessed".
