Mariah Carey’s New Single “Obsessed”, An Eminem Diss?
MTV – Mariah Carey has responded to Eminem’s taunts from his track “Bagpipes From Baghdad” with her own stinging account of things on “Obsessed,” the first single from her upcoming album Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.
The singer never mentions the rapper by name, but the lyrics suggest Em may be the target, as Carey talks about the target’s drug problems. “It must be the weed, it must be the E/ ‘Cause you be poppin’, you get it poppin’,” Carey sings.
From Relapse, Em’s track “Bagpipes From Baghdad,” he raps about taking Carey back from Nick Cannon “Nick Cannon better back the f___ up”. (Carey has denied Eminem’s claims that they dated for six months.)
Mariah Carey hasn’t responded publicly, but on “Obsessed,” however, she seems to be getting her laughs in, particularly on the song’s chorus.
“Why are you so obsessed with me/ Boy I wanna know/ Lying that you’re sexing me/ When everybody knows/ It’s clear that you’re upset with me,”
