The singer appeared on Billboard’s Quizzed video series alongside Tina Fey this week and the pair discussed the iconic 2004 film. In the video, Tina quizzes Mariah ― who she calls “the Michael Jordan of Mean Girls trivia” ― and Mariah nails it.
In addition to knowing that Gretchen Weiner’s father invented Toaster Strudel and that Ms. Norbury teaches 12th-grade calculus, Mariah remembered small moments from the film like what band Cady Heron’s parents went to go see and the nutrition bars that Regina eats to “lose weight.”
One of the highlights of the discussion came as Tina and Mariah recalled the scene when The Plastics perform Jingle Bell Rock for their annual talent show routine.
“I’m a little bit disappointed they’re not dancing to my song, but Jingle Bell Rock is a bit older than All I Want For Christmas Is You, so that’s OK,” Mariah said.
“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. Just laugh and that’ll be legally binding,” Tina joked.
The 50-year-old Grammy winner then suggested she’d write a new Christmas song specifically for a sequel, which Tina emphatically supported.
“I definitely want to be in it as well!” Mariah added. “I don’t know as who. Maybe I can be friends with Amy Poehler as, like, her other friend that wears sweatsuits.”
As Gretchen would say: That’d be so fetch.
