Justin Bieber’s Mariah Carey Slam a Scam?

Truth rating: 2

Did Justin Bieber diss Mariah Carey?

The world is abuzz after the teen pop superstar reportedly had some harsh words for Carey during an interview with The Sun.

Asked whether he’d like to collaborate with the songstress, Bieber is quoted as saying, “I don’t love her new music, it’s not the same. It’s like Michael Jordan coming back out to play in the NBA. She is past her best.”


Not surprisingly, the criticism was picked up everywhere by outlets wondering how the nice kid from Canada could mess with Mariah.

Well, he might not have.

A representative for Bieber told Gossip Cop the story is “totally off the mark” and that “no such comment was ever uttered” by Bieber about Carey.

And here’s more reason to believe The Sun may have gotten Carey-d away — the insulting remarks now appear to have been scrubbed from the article.

While Bieber’s supposed slam seems weirdly specific to come from nowhere… the newspaper is acting as though it never happened at all.

Maybe it didn’t.
