This week, many of you have been emailing me about a story that came out of Australia – James Parker tried to get Mimi to have sex with him by playing Beyoncé’s Crazy In Love on the laptop and she threw it out the window. According to a source:

"Oh boy, was that a disaster! Mariah threw the computer that was playing it via speakers out the window! Seriously, she just trashed it. She ran out of the room screaming."

Mimi’s reps have already shut this down. But if this was on a gossip test and you believed it, you would have received a failing grade. Because whoever made up this story DOES NOT KNOW MIMI. How can you tell? This sentence:

“She ran out of the room screaming.”

She ran?

She RAN???

If that sentence had been, “She floated out of the room on a bed of rare furs and male abdominal muscles” we would not have a problem. If that sentence had been, “She glided out of the room on a leather hammock trimmed with diamonds” there would be no challenge. The story would be true.


It’s insulting. I’m offended on Mimi’s behalf. That someone would try and come with gossip about her and get it so f-cking wrong.
