Mariah Carey Shades Al Roker at the Golden Globes: 'Men Forget That Women Also Write Songs'


No one loves red-carpet shenanigans more than us, and when Mariah Carey is involved, well that’s just the cherry on the cake. NBC TV veteran Al Roker asked Mimi if she ever gets tired of racking up so many accolades.

Was it an innocent question? Not to MC. The singer was nominated for a Golden Globe for co-writing (with Marc Shaiman) the title song to the animated film The Star, which is about a donkey who saves Christmas. As Mariah stood hand-in-hand next to a stunning Sharon Stone (a total girl-crush moment), she informed Roker:  “I have never been nominated for a Golden Globe as a songwriter.” Then she quipped: “And many times men forget that women also write songs and I’m really excited about it because of that.” Ouch.

If you recall, Mariah was nominated, along with Whitney Houston, for best original song for 1999’s “When You Believe,” from the animated film The Prince of Egypt. However, Babyface and Stephen Schwartz penned that song.

Before things got too weird on the carpet (okay, maybe it was too late for that) between Roker and Mariah, the “I Don’t” vocalist teased that she was going to steal Stone’s “diamonds later.” We don't know what happened to Stone's jewels later, but one thing is for sure, there’s never a dull moment when MC is on camera.
