Video: Mariah Carey Answers the Color Question

Mariah Carey visited George Lopez on his new late night show, Lopez Tonight and he flat out asked her about her ethnic background. In a scene from Carey's critically acclaimed new film, Precious, the main character (played by Gabourey Sidibe) asks the pop star, playing a social worker, "What color are you?" Lopez points out that he is sure Carey has been getting this question her whole life, before asking, "So, what color are you?" To be fair, she was about to reveal the comedian’s DNA testing results, so he was really only giving what he was going to get!

Check out the video below to get to the bottom of Mariah's family history:

About this author

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
