to view a video clip of Extra's interview with Mariah.
Mariah Carey took the Big Apple by storm yesterday to launch her first ever fragrance, M, and Ã‚â€œExtraÃ‚â€ was in the middle of the party.
Mariah, dressed in a stunning black Henry Leger dress, was surrounded by hundreds of people at MacyÃ‚â€™s Herald Square as fans clamored to get an autograph. In true diva fashion, she arrived in a Bentley Phantom.
But with the crowd closing in, and lots of fans to please, Mariah told Ã‚â€œExtraÃ‚â€ her secret to practical fashion: Ã‚â€œComfortable shoes!Ã‚â€ she said.
The gorgeous singer also went on rumor control, answering questions about a secret boyfriend of two years.
Ã‚â€œI was talking about you,Ã‚â€ she told Ã‚â€œExtraÃ‚â€™sÃ‚â€ A.J. Calloway. Ã‚â€œArenÃ‚â€™t we always having an affair?Ã‚â€
Mariah also tackled reports that sheÃ‚â€™s in a fight with Sean Ã‚â€œDiddyÃ‚â€ Combs over his rival perfume.
Ã‚â€œI have no feud with Diddy,Ã‚â€ she insisted. Ã‚â€œHe knows I love him.Ã‚â€
MariahÃ‚â€™s focus for now includes her new record, a follow-up to her multi-platinum comeback CD Ã‚â€œThe Emancipation of Mimi.Ã‚â€ It hits shelves early next year.
Ã‚â€œYou know what, I'm really excited about this album,Ã‚â€ she said. Ã‚â€œI got three more songs to sing that I already wrote.Ã‚â€
