Mariah Carey’s Twitter Account Was Hacked And The Hackers Definitely Have Some Thoughts On Eminem

Mariah Carey is starting off the new year in the beautifully messy way only Mimi could. The legendary vocalist made history becoming the first artist in history to top the Billboard charts in four different decades with the single “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” On the flipside, Carey’s Twitter account was hacked on New Year’s Eve and it tweeted some unsettling things about her alleged former fling and musical nemesis Eminem.

Hackers unleash the N-word and Eminem thirst tweets from Mariah’s account.

The hackers identified themselves a the Chuckling Squad. The same group that hacked Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in August and celebrities like Chloe Grace Moretz. Things like “Eminem has a little penis” and “Yo that diss track on Eminem was hard” were tweeted from the “Obsessed” singer’s account to her 21.4 million followers. 

“Confirming the account was hacked. As soon as we were made aware of the issue, we locked the compromised account and are currently investigating the situation,” a Twitter spokesperson toldThe Hollywood Reporter

By the mid-afternoon of New Year’s Eve, the incident had been resolved. The Elusive Chanteuse tweeted before midnight, “I take a freaking nap and this happens.” It’s always nice to see celebrities have a sense of humor about these kinds of things. 

The Chuckling Squad has done this kind of thing before.

The Chuckling Squad has been notorious for taking over the Twitter accounts of high profile users, including Dorsey the platform’s founder. In August, a loophole allowed the hackers to infiltrate his account. 

“The phone number associated with the account was compromised due to a security oversight by the mobile provider. This allowed an unauthorized person to compose and send tweets via text message from the phone number. That issue is now resolved,” Twitter said after Dorsey’s hack

At the time, Twitter disabled the function to tweet via SMS or text message. It is unclear if the same method was used to hack Carey’s account. The Chuckling Squad’s MO tends to be tweeting polarizing things, including the N-word, from famous peoples’ accounts. They even tweeted out Moretz’s social security number.

The comments about Eminem appear to have been an attempt at reigniting a feud between Carey and the rapper Eminem. The duo’s feud began when the “Lose Yourself” rapper said he dated Carey in 2001. 

“I hung out with him, I spoke to him on the phone,” the singer explained to Larry King around the time. “I think I was probably with him a total of four times. And I don’t consider that dating somebody.”

Mimi released the diss track “Obsessed.” The music video featured herself dressed as an Eminem-like figure who stalks Carey. Slim Shady continued the feud after she wed Nick Cannon. Despite Cannon and Carey’s divorce, Marshall Mathers dissed Cannon again this September on the Fat Joe single “Lord Above.” Cannon released three diss tracks in response. 

Carey remains unbothered, becoming the first artist to break a new Billboard record.  

The five-time Grammy winner doesn’t appear to be romantically involved with either of the men who continue to invoke her name in their ongoing feud from a bygone era. When Carey appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in 2014, the host asked her to say three nice things about Eminem. 

“They come in a package that you can carry wherever you go. Melts in your mouth, not in your hand. People love them around the world, and they’re tasty. You can have peanut or the regular kind,” Carey said, referring instead to the candy-coated cholate treat M&Ms. 

Released in 1994, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” became an instant classic. The song has managed to snag the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in the 90s, 2000s, 2010s, and the single remains an unstoppable bop in 2020. 

While other artists like Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Madonna, and Usher, have managed the feat in three decades, Carey is in a league of her own. “All I Want For Christmas Is You” has become the highest-charting holiday single of all time. 

Carey tweeted her excitement, “Yaaaaaaaaay!!! WE. DID. IT. But… what’s a decade?”

Mariah Carey Got Her First Dose Of The Vaccine And Made It Into An Iconic Moment

@MariahCarey / Twitter

Vaccines are rolling out across the country. People are getting their shots so life can finally start getting back to normal after a year of quarantining and social distancing. Mariah Carey let her fans join on her first shot and it became iconic.

Mariah Carey got her first shot of the vaccine and hit that whistle note.

More and more Americans are finally getting vaccinated to get the world back to normal. More than 160 million vaccines have been given in the U.S. and people are starting to see the results. Life is slowly getting back to normal for families who haven’t seen each other in years.

The singer was “excited and nervous a little bit” about getting the vaccine. Her demeanor showed just how impactful it is for people to do their part to get us back to normal.

True to form, Carey was in her camera-ready pose when she was getting ready.

People receiving the vaccine are told to keep their arm relaxed but Carey clearly isn’t made for that. How do you just turn off your star charisma?

It’s important to keep your arm relaxed while you are getting your vaccination to save you from the pain. If your arm is tense or in an awkward position, it is more likely to move during the jab, which can be painful. Listen to your nurses.

Some people are very curious how someone so young got the vaccine.

President Joe Biden announced that all states must make vaccine eligibility open to all adults by April 19. Some states are allowing people as young as 16 to get vaccinated. This is an accelerated deadline from the previously called for May 1. President Biden has worked hard to push the vaccination rate up and he has delivered on his promises for various vaccination deadlines.

People want to know if the vocal skills are a side effect of the vaccine.

There are a lot of conspiracy theories circulating about the vaccine. Some people believe that Bill Gates is microchipping them using the vaccine. It is a conspiracy that persists despite people definitively debunking the theory.

Congratulations, Mariah!

The world is eager to get back to normal and the vaccination rollout across the world is going to get us there. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is slowly releasing new guidelines about what fully vaccinated people are able to do.

For example, it is safe for fully vaccinated people to gather in small groups indoors without masks and social distancing. Fully vaccinated people can also fly on airplanes without much risk because of the effectiveness of the vaccine.
