I'm not a Mariah Carey fan, but I do root for her a little bit because not only is she a good singer, she's also a talented songwriter who continuously writes songs that are so good that it would make people (including myself) want to purchase them. Anyway, do any of you guys remember her song Heartbreaker several years ago? Well, in the music video of that particular song, it did show that she was throwing popcorn at someone in a movie theater. It didn’t seem mean though because the way it was set up, she was throwing popcorn at a villain who stole her boyfriend.
But recently, my coworker told me something that she heard from someone else, that Mariah Carey did something really mean and it was caught on MTV’s Making The Video of that song Heartbreaker. I don’t think it’s true though and I believe it to be a rumor because there’s no evidence of it on YouTube or whatever.
Anyway, rumor has it that when MTV showed the making of the music video of Heartbreaker several years ago, you could see on television, Mariah Carey sitting near the back of the movie theater with fellow celebrity Jerry O’Connell during break and she starts to throw a single piece of popcorn at this extra, a sweet and innocent young woman, who's sitting alone just a few rows in front of Mariah. Well, Mariah Carey just keeps throwing a single piece of popcorn after popcorn...after popcorn (you get the picture) at that young woman until she couldn’t take it anymore and as she was about to cry she got up from her seat and walked off, by herself. Mariah Carey realizing that MTV got it on camera, made a personal statement facing the camera saying that she later went to where that young woman was and apologized to her.
But obviously that whole incident was just a rumor, that it didn’t really happen because there’s no evidence of it on YouTube or whatever.
Hypothetically, if Mariah Carey did throw popcorn at someone else, it wouldn’t make me hate her, it would just make me not want to root for her at all and it would also make me think that even though she has 17 #1’s tying her with Elvis (a legend) and having two less #1’s than the Beatles (also legends), that being up there doesn’t make her a legend herself, that she’s solely up there because she must be a really good songwriter to garner so many #1’s, that’s all.
But I really wouldn’t think of her that way and I would still root for her because that mean incident is just a rumor, that it’s not true because there’s no evidence that the incident really did happen, like I said earlier. So if anyone out there mentions that incident, please don't believe it. Thank you.
