Demi Lovato Slams ‘Nasty’ Mariah Carey for Jennifer Lopez Digs

Four divas, one fray. Demi Lovato may have started up a new feud with Mariah Carey — and innocent bystanders Ariana Grande and Jennifer Lopez were pulled in too.

The drama began when a fan posted a meme on Instagram that compared an old '90s photo of Carey to Grande. “When you order it online vs. when it arrives,” the text said, seeming to imply that Grande doesn’t live up to Carey’s musical talent.

Lovato, 23, wrote, “You got it the wrong way around honey.” After Mariah fans started attacking the “Cool for the Summer” songstress, she commented again to clarify her remark. “Mariah is a legend and is so talented but constantly disses people. It’s nasty the way she treats Jennifer [Lopez]. Ari did nothing wrong.”

Carey and Lopez have been constantly feuding since the early 2000s. In a now-iconic comment to the paparazzi, when Carey was asked about the fellow pop star, she famously stated, “I don’t know her.” Years later in 2014, J.Lo finally opened up to Andy Cohen about the beef between the two stars. “I know from back in the day, I’ve read things that she’s said about me that were not the greatest, but we have never met,” Lopez said. “Like, we don’t know each other. I think it’s kind of from word of mouth of things that have happened in the past that I’m not really aware of.”

The feud escalated when Lopez was caught scrolling through her cellphone during Carey’s performance at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. Lopez later attempted to clarify what had happened during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live and said, “First of all, that was not fair with the texting thing because I watched a lot of it.

Meanwhile, Lovato has been fighting with several of her fellow musicians lately. In recent months, she has squabbled with Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift and Pink
