With hubby Nick Cannon taking on the hosting duties for America's Got Talent, Mariah Carey has confirmed that her highly anticipated "Obsessed" video will premiere on the NBC talent show on July 15. The diva announced via her Twitter page that her fans will get to see the final product of the video that featured her dressing in drag where some says she impersonates rapper Eminem.
"Just wanna let you know that the world premiere of the 'Obsessed' video is on 'America's Got Talent' (hosted by NCx0x) Wednesday night, July 15th!" she wrote.
Clips have surfaced featuring Carey sporting a beard looking, admittedly, very much like the rapper, who recently rapped about her in his song "Bagpipes from Baghdad" on his comeback album "Relapse." The chorus of "Obsessed" is reportedly in reference to Eminem's claim in his song that the two dated and he wants her back from the AGT
host. "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."
Cannon previously admitted the possibility of Carey performing on America's Got Talent
, but didn't say anything conclusively. The debut of the video might be the start of something. The show remains to be repeat-laden summer's highest rated franchise.
"They keep asking me that - I don't know. It's a possibility. She loves the show," he said. "She has a hot new album coming out. It's the hottest show on TV so why wouldn't that work out? So hopefully the timing works out and she does get to come represent."
Carey's new album "Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel" is set for an August 25 release.
