WATCH: What we learned from Mariah Carey's latest epic interview

Mariah Carey opened up about that Jennifer Lopez comment this week – and she's not changing her story. Despite them both being pop superstars, in the early '00s, when asked about her opinion of Jennifer Lopez, Mariah responded: "I don't know her."

Of course the internet still can't over the now iconic moment, so when Mariah, 45, appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen couldn't resist asking her to elaborate.

So what did we learn from Mariah's hilarious interview with Andy?

She still doesn't know J.Lo

"I'm very forgetful," Mariah purred, when Andy asked the question. Seemingly referencing Jennifer's response to the original comments, Mariah continued: "Apparently I'm forgetful because I don't remember the fact that it was just like, 'Hi, I'm so and so'."

She told Andy: "If I had never had a conversation about you, and someone asked me about you, I'd be like, 'I don't know him, but he seems cool'."


Mariah still doesn't know JLo...

This superstar doesn't pretend to be friends with people just because they're famous

Andy pushed the subject, and asked: "Does [Jennifer] seem cool?" But Mariah replied: "I don't know her. I'm not gonna put on a thing like we’re all Hollywood and let's all pretend we're best friends because we're in that land. It's no offence to anybody."

Beyoncé and Jay Z are her close friends

Two people Mariah was full of compliments for was "super talented" Beyoncé and Jay Z, confessing she and the rapper go back a long way.

Mariah doesn't think Becky with the Good Hair is a real person

While on that subject, Mariah was asked about Beyoncé's latest album Lemonade and the controversial Becky with the Good hair, the woman Beyoncé sings about having an affair with a man many fans took to be Jay Z.

But Mariah insisted that songwriters such as herself and Beyoncé use music to write stories, but added that she would only ever comment on Becky with the Good hair directly if asked by Beyoncé and Jay Z themselves. 


But she does love M&Ms

To be Mariah's friend you have to have shared a "moment" with her

Just to clear up any uncertainty, Mariah told host Andy that they are friends, adding: "I feel like we've met, we've talked, we've had cool moments together."

She doesn't have an opinion on ex-husband Nick Cannon's new tattoo

"Don't know it, didn't see it. It is what it is, he's allowed to have whatever [he wants]."    

Mariah loves M&Ms

Andy cheekily attempted to approach the subject of her publicised feud with rapper Eminem, but Mariah simply listed the reasons she loves chocolate M&Ms…

She and Nicki Minaj are still not best friends

But that didn't stop Andy from asking Mariah about her bitter fall-out with Nicki Minaj while they were both judges on American Idol.

"Can you say three nice things about Nicki Minaj?" Andy asks. Mariah simply responded: "Can you?"
