People Thought Mariah Carey Confused Jennifer Aniston And Reese Witherspoon And Things Got Heated

Mariah Carey has a message for the media: don't come for her.

The singer was recently involved in some drama where they believed that she confused Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon with each other.

Turns out, that wasn't the case and Carey was there to set the record straight.

Mariah Carey may be a lot of things — singer, actress, professional dog whistler — but she's not the best at remembering people.

For instance, the singer once said "I don't know her," when asked in an interview about Jennifer Lopez.

Naturally, the internet freaked out over this because HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW JLO?!

There's even memes about it!

Mariah did eventually clear the whole thing up.

She explained that she wasn't trying to throw shade; she "really was trying to say something nice or say nothing at all. I really was."

But then, Mariah told Bravo Host Andy Cohen that she *doesn't* know JLo.

When Andy asked if she knew her, Mariah said, "No! You know what? I'm very forgetful. Apparently, I'm forgetful."

"Because I don't remember the fact that it was like 'Hi, I'm so and so' and then we moved on. If I have never had a conversation about you and someone asks me, I would be like 'I don't know them but they seem cool' or 'I don't know them'."

When Cohen asked, "Does she seem cool?," Carey replied, "I don't know her. Like what am I supposed to say?"

That's Mariah: Queen of unintentional shade!

So given this history of forgetting who celebs are, the internet was quick to judge when they thought Mariah confused two different celebs with each other.

It all began with Carey's recent speech that she gave during Variety's Power of Women luncheon.

In it, she spoke about important topics affecting women, including career, sexism, and more.

At the beginning, though, there was a hilarious moment where she spoke about the prompters being broken.

"This prompter thing? I predicted it," she said. She even brought up cue cards.

"I was watching Reese Witherspoon [and] seeing, like, in her speech...I'm like, 'Why can't it be the prompter [that's right in front of you]?'"

When she said this, a lot of people thought that she was confusing Reese with Jennifer since Aniston had spoken prior to Carey.

As it turns out, though, Mariah wasn't trying to throw shade, despite what some media reports said.

She was actually referring to Reese and her 2014 Variety speech where the prompter gave her issues as well.

The singer was not happy with the media's reports that said she confused the two A-List actresses.

She ended up tweeting out some real shade to them.

She even dropped receipts by tweeting out the video of Reese.

So, yes, Reese's 2014 speech was what Mariah was referring to.

But even if Mariah did mess them up, it would be pretty understandable.

I mean, they did play sisters on Friends.

And they even have a new show coming out together called The Morning Show.

But in other news, Jennifer Aniston is now on Instagram (!!)

This is not a drill!

And lookie lookie! See who follows her!

So yeah, sorry haterz, Mariah knows exactly who Jennifer is.

This is a moment, indeed.
