Eminem Not Worthy, Mariah Claws on Obsessed

Rumors that Mariah Carey’s new single “Obsessed” would be “hurtful” have come true in the form of lyrics like “I’m a corporation. I’m a press conference…(and) you’re a conversation”. The single, released Tuesday, leads Carey’s forthcoming album “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel” and reeks of Eminem. (Listen to “Obsessed” here) While the diva, who calls the track “different, but so me,” does not name the rapper who has repeatedly mentioned her in songs, including one on his 2009 effort “Relapse,” words like “Why are you so obsessed with me? Lying that you’re sexing me” seem to point to the former “Slim Shady” star. Carey and Eminem’s alleged ‘relationship’ history has been up for debate for years. Unlike Carey, who is striking for the second time (sans 2003s “Clown”), Eminem has been known to claim that he slept with the Grammy-winning singer and “wants her back” on more than one occasion. On “Obsessed” Carey has fun with the “Relapse” rapper, citing his substance abuse for the continuous need to discuss her in his music or interviews. “You’re delusional, boy, you’re losing your mind… It must be weed, it must be the E… Why are you so obsessed with me? Lying that you’re sexing me,” Carey sings on the track. Nonetheless, the reigning World Music Award female artist of the millennium is content with her forthcoming album “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel”. Set for release August 25, Carey says “I love the whole album. I’m completely immersed in it. I can’t wait for you to hear it.”
