Katy Perry is Trying to Destroy Mariah Carey's Career, According to Ridiculous Theory

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Get ready for your daily dose of crazy, everyone.

According to a theory that's somehow actually gained traction online, Katy Perry has some kind of beef with Mariah Carey, and she's not expressing her rage in the ways you might expect (talking trash on Twitter, sleeping with Nick Cannon).

No, Katy is trying to destroy Mariah's career!

Back in March, Katy subtly threw shade at Mariah, describing the R&B icon as "fabulous...for a throwback." Conspiracy theorists claim that was just the latest in a long line of low-key disses, and believe that Katy is doing everything in her power to bring Mariah down.

The extremists believe that pretty much everything KP does is an attempt to ruin Mariah. (Katy and Hillary Clinton are BFFs now, Mariah. You may want to consider moving abroad!) Perry has even gone so far as to involve Iggy Azalea in the alleged feud:

That's Iggy's new song, "Black Widow" mashed up with Mariah's "Thirsty." Pretty similar, eh? What's this have to do with the Katy feud?

Well, Katy wrote "Black Widow" and then gave the song to Iggy instead of recording it herself. Mariah reportedly scrapped plans to release "Thirsty" as the lead single off her new album after hearing an early version of "Black Widow."

Around the same time, Katy reportedly canceled plans to mock Mariah in a music video, as she decided against going public with their diva beef.

So, is this the dumbest feud since Jenelle Evans vs. Farrah Abraham? Absolutely. Will we still keep an eye on it and alert you to further developments? You know us too well.  

Katy Perry vs. Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift wrote a song titled "Bad Blood" about an enemy in the music business. We're pretty sure the subject was Katy Perry.

Thirsty was released before Black Widow...

Just a reminder that Mariah is not the most successful female artist.. Madonna has sold more than 300 million records worldwide and is recognized as the best-selling female recording artist of all time by Guinness World Records. According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), she is the best-selling female rock artist of the 20th century and the second best-selling female artist in the United States, with 64.5 million certified albums. Billboard ranked her at number two, behind only The Beatles, on the Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists, making her the most successful solo artist in the history of American singles chart. The magazine also declared her as the top-touring female artist of all time. She became one of the five founding members of the UK Music Hall of Fame and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in her first year of eligibility.

Just a reminder! Mariah Carey is considered the best selling FEMALE artist of the SOUND-SCAN era (where artist had to actually sell music instead of ship them) to be added to that list. Mariah Carey has sold 54+ million ALBUMS from RETAIL stores since 1991 of March! Also, shipped 63 million since 1990. Celine is number 2. Madonna's 300+ million records sold are based off of SHIPMENTS & ESTIMATIONS not actual SALES. BYE Joan "LOOSE BOOTY" Rivers!

Mariah Carey is considered one of the greatest vocalists that has
ever lived. She can hit notes that 99.9% of other singers can't. Go to
YouTube and view "Mariah Songbird Carey : Artistry Of Whistle" for proof
of that. You see..any pretty bimbo can release a catchy music
track nowadays. But you are forgetting that doesn't make them a SINGER. A
Singer is someone who can actually sing..beautifully..and who touches
your heart. That's what real music about..it's not about how many number
ones you get..but how GOOD of a singer you are and how you touched
people. Music is Art..it's not a sport..and you can't judge singers
based on awards like you can an athlete. Mariah Carey is already a
legend..and NOBODY CAN TAKE THAT AWAY FROM HER. =)

This is ridiculous! Mariah's career is already over - no need for Katy Perry to destroy anything. And Katy is STILL going to poke fun at Mariah in her new video -- so stay tuned for that.

LOL Katy Perry's debut album has sold not more than 200 UNITS worldwide, charting nowhere in the world .Mariah has never fall so low ! MC is a talented artist and a vocalist,meaning she's relevant even if she doesn't have chart and sales succes unlike entertainers and pretty-faced artists that just sell their image through their so-called music .

oh please Katy is just poking fun at the biggest fattest laughing stock in poptard trash these days-MeMe the annoying whale is such a transparent fraud in every way from her photoshopped promo photos to her overproduced , filtered enhanced "music" to her lame drunk stupidity in any interview she does-who could NOT make fun of that hideous over rated stripper-and that constant spewing of trumped up numbers from the 90's?? WTF??? thye proven that MeMe increases the fake numbers every time she spew them out-this is a blatant attempt to try and "spin" the upcoming parody Katie is releasing as some kind of vengeful plan and incur sympathy for the cow Meme--can't wait to see Katie's video it will be hilarious to be sure-and "nail on the head" about what a old poser loser MeMe has ALWAYS been-her sheep are so delusional and annoying-do they know just how stupid and gullible they look defending the beast? are ya'll really to dim to she that Sony and Tommy pulled the "wool" over your eyes long ago and you still believe-sooo sad-why do you think she calls you lambs--even the hag is in on the joke about "her fans"

So true. Mariah is the laughing stock of pop music. She is not taken seriously and never will be. She was only popular in the US and that was all the money Tommy Mottolla paid for those number ones.

Well, it's her voice that made it number one, not Tommy Mottola. She was popular WORLDWIDE. Get your fact straight then comment, ignorant lady.

Mariah Carey is taken very seriously ,as she was awarded at the world Music Awards by May 27,2014 receiving the first ever Icon Award for 200 millions albums sold in the planet ! Just as much as Madonna.She's praised by countless artists and fellow divas,music producers and composers,vocal coaches,DJ,music critics and journalits,opera singers,etc....Mariah Carey is the most popular and best selling non-Asian artist in Asia,specially in China,Japan,South Corea,Taiwan,Hong Kong,Singapore,Phillipines,Malaysia,Indonesia .Mariah's I want to Know What Love Is holds the record of the most weeks running atop the Brazilian singles chart in brazilian music history ( 27 consecutive weeks ).Besides,she's the only female act to have 2 million selling albums in Brazil .Mariah's All I want For Christmas Is You is the most popular Christmas song in the UK for the entire 2000 decade.Mariah and Celine are the 2 only non-dutch female singers to pass 600 000 sales with an album in the Netherlands.Mariah owns 10 number one singles in Canada,more than Celine Dion.Mariah owns the best selling version ever of O Holy Night in Australia.Mariah is ranked as the 6th most influential woman of all time by the website Evoke.Mariah's best selling album has sold over 32 millions copies worldwide,her best selling single has pass 14 million sales in the planet.So Mariah is a global phenomenon and popular worldwide,not in the US.

Also, you need to stop spreading that lie of her only being popular in the USA. Mariah actually, scored multiple top 10 hits throught Europe & eventually selling almost 10+ million records in the UK alone. Including, selling 1+ million singles with "All I Want For Christmas" which is a huge feat in the UK. And, do I have to pull up receipts on her DOMINATING the ASIAN culture! Mariah is the ONLY NON-Asian artist to sell damn near 20 million records in Japan. She is the most successful NON-Asian artist in Japan. She also, has 10 number 1 hits in Canada. She also, has multiple number 1 hits in New Zealand & scored 27 top ten hits in the UK. Not to mention the 17 top ten hits she achieved in Austrialia. She may not be MADONNA or CELINE DION (when it comes to WORLDWIDE success, mostly due to her singing R&B music) but to say she was only popular in America is a complete LIE! .
For someone that does R&B music & NEVER TOURS. She has had an extremely well received success WORLDWIDE also. Considering the fact that, R&B/SOUL/HIP-HOP DOES NOT sell well AT ALL worldwide. You are completely lying about her not being popular outside of the States FAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!

seriously-no one is more "digital" than MeMe-from her fake photoshopped selfies and promo art to her "studio fiction" songs-I can't even to refer to as music-MeMe has been faking it for a long time-take from someone who lived thru the 90's-shes a studio and photoshop fraud from way back a Tommy/Sony creation to compete with Clive Davis making Whitney Houston an international "name" and now that they have cast off the old useless flesh puppet it has become this hideous monster afterlife that just keeps haunting the world-gads MeMe go away

To fatalreview and Joancrawford: okay, we get it. You both obviously have complete hatred and jeolously of MC's career successes and just her as a person. It is clear from your MANY nasty comments every chance you get to make one on any page you can find about her. But guess what, no matter how much hatred you spew about this woman you will NEVER be as known, talented or blessed as her. She will be known and respected for her contributions long after you are rotted and forgotten in the ground. So, hey, continue your useless 'contributions' to the comments sections. Maybe one day you will be inspired by her and accomplish a fraction of what she has done in your life, instead of waisting time trying to destroy her. MC is an inspiring, talented and soulful black woman that does NOT deserve such words from you both. You should be ashamed.

Really? Let's see..Mariah has been on the scene since 1988 and has sold more than 200 million records worldwide, making her one of the best-selling music artist of all time oh and lets not forget that she had a Billboard Number record every year for an entire decade 90s so what did Katy do show up in 1997 bounce from one record company to the next and throughout her career, she has sold 11 million albums (that's just two albums) and 81 million singles from one of the two worldwide. So yeah Katy is " Thirsty" and needs to find someone else to pick on....

Really?? 1988? What has she done in 1988 and 1989? Show me. Nothing. Stop trying years to Mariah's career like Maraih shoves years off her age. FACT: mariah was born in 1969 she is 45, not 44. I would not diss Katy too hard..she is on track to beat Mariah's 18 #1's record as is Rihanna.

Mariah Carey started recording songs & got signed to a major label in 1988. So, technically she has been an official artist since 1988. BYE Joan FAGGGGGGOT

Billie Holiday..Barbra Streisand..Joni Mitchell..and the list goes on of legendary female singers who are STILL legends even though they haven't had hits in decades..so time means nothing when you are talented. You've forgotten one VERY BIG DIFFERENCE between Mariah Carey..and those two other ladies you mentioned. And it's a difference that has put Mariah Carey in the history books as a true legendary artist..and not just some bimbo with a catchy music track: Mariah Carey is considered one of the greatest vocalists that has ever lived. She can hit notes that 99.9% of other singers can't. Go to YouTube and view "Mariah Songbird Carey : Artistry Of Whistle" for proof of that.

not is right…listen, Mariah in her day had a decent voice but she lived in Whitney's shadow. There are several other female singes that blow Mariah away in the vocal department..Aretha, Patti Labelle, Chaka, Whitney Houston, Christina, Adele, Celine -- all these woman have better voices than Mariah…and there are many more I have not listed…so Mariah is really not that impressive. She is still not a legend and the industry still does not take her seriously for some reason..they must know something we don't.

Mariah is superior to all the ladies you've mentionned .There is no doubt that the Aretha,Patti Labelle,Whitney Houston has influenced millions of vocalists, including her collaborator, but they never displayed Carey’s level complexity or versatility. Carey experiments with the various colours and textures of her voice in a way that no other artist in Pop music has done to date. With her incredible sense of pitch, she draws of the precision timing of Ella Fitzgerald, the styling of Sarah Vaughan, range of Minnie Riperton and the grit of Aretha Franklin. Really, Carey is a chameleon in every sense of the word as she switches her approach to suit every genre that she sings – Jazz, Gospel, R&B, Soul, Pop, Dance, Rock, Hip-Hop and Country. That attention of detail continues to inspire other artists who eagerly attempt to imitate her breathy coos and knotty vocal runs, the latter of which Carey used to rebrand the modern ballad via “Vision of Love” and again with “We Belong Together”. Mariah is a legend,even music experts say so !In a review of her Greatest Hits album, Devon Powers of PopMatters writes that "She has influenced countless female vocalists after her. At 32, she is already a living legend—even if she never sings another note."

Excuse me? Is this why she has over 200+ musical honors/awards. Given to her by her peers?! Ugh, once again you are talking out your loose a**. Also, is this why she is listed by "Beyonce", "Ariana", "Fantasia", "Patti" & many other singers as one of the greatest singers of all time. By Joan LOOSE BOOTY Rivers1
