Oh, so fetch! In the season 2 premiere episode of Billboard‘s “Quizzed” video series, Mean Girls star and screenwriter Tina Fey quizzes superfan Mariah Carey to see just how much the singer actually knows about the hit 2004 film.
Before getting started, Carey shows off a piece of jewelry to prove how much she loves the movie, which also starred Lindsay Lohan as Cady Heron and Rachel McAdams as Regina George. “Could you tell by anything that I’m wearing that I might have seen the movie once or twice?” she asks the comedian as she waves her fingers elegantly over her neck. “My necklace is an ‘M’ version of the ‘R’ that Regina and the ‘C’ that Cady have.”
During the True or False round of “Quizzed,” the singer reveals to Fey after answering four questions in a row correctly that she has seen the film more than just a few times. “When the movie was first released, I watched it literally every night,” Carey admits. “And then recently, my daughter — who’s technically too young — she’s obsessed with it.”
But it’s in round two that Fey — who Paramount Studios announced in January will bring the film back to the big screen in a movie adaptation of the Broadway musical — potentially nabs the superfan for the revival. After Carey correctly answers that “Jingle Bell Rock” is the song The Plastics dance to at the talent show, the singer expresses her disappointment that it’s not her tune “All I Want for Christmas Is You” instead.
“We’re gonna make another movie of it, so if you want to license us that song for the movie and also be in the movie, just say nothing now and we’ll consider it legally binding,” teases Fey, who is producing and writing the script. “Just laugh and it’ll be legally binding.”
“I definitely want to be in it as well!” gushes the five-time Grammy winner before suggesting a role. “Maybe I can be friends with [Mean Girls actress] Amy Poehler as, like, her other friend that wears sweatsuits.”
At the beginning of the trivia game’s third round, Fey couldn’t hide how impressed she was by Carey’s knowledge of the comedy. “The Michael Jordan of Mean Girls trivia!” she exclaims about the singer, who had yet to miss a single question.
