Let the hateration begin. I know y’all are gonna let Mimi have it for this one but like I’ve said in the past, I love that she owns her crazy. How can you hate on any Mariah video that features her in boy drag as well as references to both Mean Girls and Final Destination? Yes, this “beef” between her and Eminem is watered-down-Kool-Aid weak, but it also blessed us with this visual gem. The Emancipation of Mimi beadspread in the “obsession” room? Hilarious! Mariah’s goatee and b-boy dance moves? Brilliant! The hand held hair dryer pretending to be a wind machine during the photo shoot scene? Noice! And yes, there are the obligatory shots of Meems lying down with her hair perfectly fanned out and shots of her ginormous breasts trying to escape from her skimpy inappropriate outfits (someone let Kanye and Drake know that this is how you shamelessly exploit a nice rack!), so this clip has everything that I need from La Carey.
The song still hasn’t really grown on me at all, but with a video that is the perfect balance of typical RyeRye kookiness and genuine comedy I might have to give “Obsessed” a few more listens. Grade: B+
NOTE: And um… at the other end of the spectrum is an uh… tribute video that has to be seen to be believed. Good luck making it all the way to the end.
