"I don't know him."

Will Ferrell is making the rounds promoting his new comedy, The House, and he shared a Very Mariah Carey story about Mariah Carey. Apparently American's #1 Perfect Diva herself was supposed to have a brief cameo during which she showed up, sang one of her songs, and was shot.

Well, it didn't happen because she didn't like the "narrative direction" and now Will is spilling all the details — including that she was four hours late, and when she did arrive on set she said she didn't want to do the scene (although it had already been approved).

"It became quite a kerfuffle. Aka a shitstorm," Will said.

Watch the video above to hear all about it, and then think about how much you still love Mariah Carey, the only person alive who becomes more lovable the more ornery they get. Thank you, my queen, for always being amazing.
