Mariah Carey describes how she bonded with Meghan Markle

September 17, 2022

Mariah Carey and Meghan Markle have bonded over misunderstandings arising from the fact that they are biracial.

The pop singer was a guest on the latest episode of the Duchess of Sussex's 'Archetypes' podcast, which was released just days before Queen Elizabeth's death on September 8.

Mariah Carey said in a new interview with Variety that she had "a lot in common" with Meghan Markle and that she liked "hearing her point of view."

“I don't know if I should be special to anyone but myself, but I didn't meet the Queen. I am, however, hooked on 'The Crown,'" she said.

“And the podcast with Meghan, I felt like that was an important moment that I really enjoyed, getting her perspective on things, she's been on her own path and I've been on mine. There are some similarities, like being biracial," Mariah Carey explained.

"I tend to deal with this issue because I can't get over it," he stressed.

“It's always an issue, whether I bring it up or someone else brings it up. I guess that's why it was interesting to chat about her podcast. There are so many misunderstandings about her and me, you can't even realize how many misunderstandings," she added.

However, Mariah Carey surprised Meghan Markle and made her "sweat", as she admitted, when she called her a diva.

“You give us diva moments sometimes, Meghan. Don't act like that…” the singer said, with Markle replying: “What kind of diva moments am I giving you?”

Meghan Markle commented at the end of the episode: "Everything was going great, I mean great, until that moment came up, which I don't know about you, but I was taken aback when he called me a diva."

“You couldn't see me, obviously, but I started to sweat a little. I started rocking in my chair in that silent rebellion. "Wait. What; No. What; How could you; This is not true. Why are you saying that?'" he described.

"My mind was really racing at the nonsense he must have read or clicked to say something like that," she added.

However, Meghan Markle noted that Mariah Meghan quickly put her at ease and said she called her a diva in a "flattering way."
