Mariah Carey is the latest celebrity to speak out on the death of Whitney Houston. But it isn't easy for the artist.
"I'm almost incapable of talking about this still," Mariah said today on Good Morning America. "It's very heavy emotionally."
The two legends collaborated on "When You Believe," a duet featured in the following video and a subject on which Mariah spoke at length in the interview.
"It was great and I don't think people could ever understand our relationship," she said. "There was always this supposed rivalry in the beginning and then we did the duet and we became friends."
Carey attended Whitney's funeral in New Jersey, describing the ceremony as "gorgeous" and concluded her thoughts about Houston with these simple words:
"I loved her. We all loved her. May she rest in peace... her legend's gonna go on forever."
