Mariah Carey is a huge fan of The Chainsmokers – but only because she thinks they’re One Direction.
The EDM DJ duo appeared on SiriusXM’s “The Morning Mash Up” show on Wednesday where they told a funny story about bumping into the “We Belong Together” singer backstage at an awards show.
“I was like ‘Oh my God. ‘Fantasy!’ ‘Honey!’ And she was like ‘Dude, I love you guys!’,” said Alex Pall, who explained that he was shocked that a mega-star like Carey knew about The Chainsmokers.
He continued: “We were like ‘What, you know who we are?’ And she was like ‘One Direction, right?'”
Pall’s story got a big laugh in the studio, and Carey herself saw the funny side of the situation, as she later sent a hilarious tweet to the Grammy-winning dance duo.
The world is now anxiously awaiting a Chainsmokers and Mariah Carey collaboration!
