One thing is for sure, Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez will not end their feud nor spend Christmas together anytime soon.
Carey has had a long-running beef with Lopez for about two decades, and the two women found themselves in the same conversation with Ryan Seacrest, and it was somewhat awkward.
This week, the TV host took to social media to ask the question on everybody’s mind, when do you put up your Christmas tree?
Seacrest reached out to Carey with his question because the diva is known as the queen of Christmas thanks to classic holiday tunes that have topped the Billboard charts for years.
The radio host asked on Twitter: “I’m told it’s too early to put up a Christmas tree. Need you to weigh in on this @mariahcarey.”
It is not known why, but Lopez dropped in Seacrest’s comment section to say, “go for it.”
Carey ignored Lopez’s response and said the opposite (and the same thing) with this answer: “It’s definitely too early Ryan! I told you to get through Thanksgiving first (but I’ve had one up for a month now…more to come).”
Music lovers had a lot to say in the comment section about the fact that Lopez decided to answer a question that was intended for Carey.
A social media user had this hilarious reaction: “I hate when people do that 😂 like, but if he were talking to you, he would’ve @ you. She gone hit jlo with the “I don’t know her” again if she keeps on .”
Another person wrote: “There’s always that one person that has to put their two cents in.”
This fan revealed in the comment section: “We were talking to the queen of Christmas, not you, Jennifer. She stole her song, and now she is trying to steal her questions.”
This person called out the pettiness and added: “J lo always inserting herself. They were talking to Mariah 🙄😂 Mariah, queen of Petty 😂 I love it.”
Carey and Lopez’s rivalry started with a song. Carey claimed that her ex-husband, Tommy Mattola, sampled her song 2001 hit, “Loverboy,” and gave it to the movie star as a way to punish her for their divorce.

When the drama just started, Carey was asked to comment on Lopez, and she dropped the famous line, “I don’t know her.”
In 2002, Carey told Larry King this about the feud: “I had nothing to do with her. Singing is first and foremost; it’s a god-given talent that I’m grateful for. Her thing is something different.”

Lopez sat down with Wendy Williams in 2016, who asked her about the “I don’t know her” line.
Lopez said: “She does say that. She’s forgetful, I guess! We’ve met many times. I don’t know… I don’t know her that well.”
In her newly-released memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, she spoke about the feud by saying: “Much of what went wrong with Glitter led back to Tommy. He was angry about the divorce and my departure from Sony, and he used all his power and connections to punish me.”
It seems that it will take more time for the two entertainers to make peace.
