Another celebrity that Mariah gushed about was actress Meryl Streep. The singer told an embarrassing story about stealing the actress’s seat by accident at the Golden Globes.
“That was so mortifying. She had spoken to me when I did Precious. She was so sweet. I was like, ‘I can’t believe Meryl Streep was talking about my performance in a film…’ When I sat in her seat, I was like, ‘I didn’t do that. Please say I didn’t do that.’ But she was like, ‘You can sit in it anytime!’ She was very festive. She was cool about it.”
Mariah touched on late singer Aretha Franklin, commenting that performing with her on Divas Live was incredible and that the singer was “real” and “intimidating.”

“Aretha was so just real… It was great and it was one of those moments where she just went so far beyond what I could have imagined she would be like. May she rest in peace. She gave us such a gift.”
