Jennifer Lopez has always been clear about one thing: there is no bad blood between her and Mariah Carey. So when the American Idol judge stopped by Watch What Happens Live on Monday, Andy Cohen couldn't resist asking her about that infamous texting incident during the 2015 Billboard Music Awards — you know, when J.Lo was caught peeking at her phone while Mariah was performing. So was she texting?
"First of all. That was not fair, with the texting thing. Because I watched a lot... it was a long performance. Ok? I watched most of it. I may have looked down for one second. People were like, ‘Look at her! Look at her!’ So not fair. So not fair. I was watching her the whole time," she said during a game of Plead the Fifth. She then clarified why she didn't see Mariah's Las Vegas show to prep for her own one, even though she's checked out Sin City residencies from other performers including Britney Spears.
"Well you have to realize...I think last year when it started I was already here in New York filming Shades of Blue and doing Idol on the weekends. Didn’t have a lot of free time," she said. "And then I started preparing my own. I don’t think there’s been a time when I could have seen it. Would I want to? Yeah, I’d want to see it."
Below, Jennifer opens up about another controversial topic and shares her thoughts on the Kardashians' butts.
