Mariah Carey Praises Rihanna In New Interview + Says She Hasn’t Heard Adele’s “Hello”

Rihanna has always praised Mariah Carey as one of her biggest influences, so she will be delighted to hear the kind things Mimi said about her in her latest interview! Chatting with the Breakfast Xpress morning show in South Africa, a high-spirited Mariah spoke on her recent engagement (though declining to give details on how it happened, as she wants to keep the moment personal,) loving Scandal and more, and even throws a little shade the Kardashians’ way as she changes the subject when they’re brought up. As for Rih, Mariah said she’s “cool, amazing and really talented,” adding that she loves her. How sweet!
