Showing off her incredible post-baby body, Mariah Carey graces the cover of this week's Us Weekly -- and apparently she read last week's cover story, too!
The slimmed-down singer and mom to twins made a not-so-subtle joke about Kim Kardashian's quickie divorce at a press conference held at the Four Seasons in NYC, where Carey was unveiled as the new ambassador for Jenny (formerly Jenny Craig).
"I'm a real person, I'm not going to put on a fake face for Hollywood," Carey told the crowd as she dished on her marriage to hubby Nick Cannon, with whom she shares six-month-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.
"Sometimes we make each other mad, that's why we aren't divorced after four months," she cracked. The crowd audibly gasped after that remark. The most notorious quickie divorce these days, of course, is 31-year-old Kardashian, who filed Oct. 31 after just 72 days of matrimony with Kris Humphries.
Looking sheepish after her crack, the "Butterfly" singer said, "I'm sorry, I'm just saying."
Looking back on the earlier days of her career she added, "You know, I had a situation in the past where I was controlled, and I was really young, and it affected the way I trusted people. I had no team, besides my dog and my cat. Me and Nick we always joke, I'm an Aries, I need so much attention!"
