"I'm at his house and I sing the part, 'People like you f--- people like me,'" Love tells Spinner. "And this little voice goes, 'I'll sing it.' I'm like, 'Who's that?' The voice goes, 'It's Mariah.'" As in, Mariah Carey.
Love says the encounter was as fun as fans might imagine. "Mariah's got a vocal coach with her, she's an industry unto herself, and we sat on Brett's couch and we watched on a screen these size five Mariah Carey videos he made," she says. "And it was hysterical. I never met Mariah for more than a minute in my life, but we sort of canceled each other out. We had nothing negative about each other to say. I'm not in her universe and she's not in mine."
While the two got along fine, there were some moments where their personalities clashed. "When you go to Brett's house you always have to take a picture in the photo strip booth. She sat down next to me and she moved me over," Love says, laughing. "This has never happened in my entire life. There are a lot of alpha males, but there aren't a lot of alpha females and this woman, I'm not in one picture. She's like totally Diana Ross-ing me and Ratner's like, 'Mariah, move the f--- over so Courtney can be in the picture.'"
Ultimately, Carey never actually recorded her vocal part. "I play the rough [cut] and she sings it," Love says of that evening. "I wish to god that there had been a person with a recorder in the room." That makes two of us.
