Their feud seemed to continue on Sunday night at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards as Mariah Carey took to the stage to perform her singles Infinity and Vision of Love as Jennifer Lopez sat through the performance apparently texting.
Lopez addressed the feud last year during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live!, denying that there anything between them as she said: “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. Like, we don’t know each other. I think it’s kind of from word of mouth of things that have happened in the past that I’m not really aware of. But I don’t know.”
The singer concluded: “I would love to meet her and I would love to be friends with her.”
However, Carey who has never been amicable when talking abut Lopez, ignored the subject completely in a famous clip on Youtube,according to Daily Mail.
When asked if rivalry existed between them and within the industry by Larry King, Carey replied: “There’s rivalry, but I don’t think she has anything to do with me. My whole thing is singing, writing songs, and I’ve been doing this my whole life. [Singing] is a God-given talent that I’m grateful for, her thing is somethin’ different.”
In 2012 Carey replaced Lopez as a judge on American Idol, only to last for one season after Lopez was asked back on the panel.
When Lopez performed on the talent show in 2013, it was remarked that Carey was the only judge not to give her a standing ovation.
