In the video, the 39-year-old diva dresses a lot like Eminem. The singer seems to be responding to Slim Shady’s unflattering references to her and her husband Nick Cannon from Eminem’s track “Bagpipes From Baghdad.”
In the song “Obsessed,” Mariah reportedly tells Eminem: “Why are you so obsessed with me/ Boy, I wanna know/ Lying that you’re sexing me/ When everybody knows/ It’s clear that you’re upset with me….You’re delusional/ Boy, you’re losing your mind.”
The video was directed by Brett Ratner, who originally cast Andy Samberg for the role of the man. But because it’s presumably anti-Eminem, he backed out and Mariah filled in for the role of the man.
