Did Jennifer Lopez Shade Mariah Carey's Billboard Music Awards Performance?

J.Lo didn’t look too interested in watching Mimi on stage.

Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey have reportedly been at odds for years. You know... Just one of those silent beefs where neither party acknowledges the other? Well, that seems to be exactly what Jenny From the Block did on Sunday night during Mimi's performance at the Billboard Music Awards.

In a video posed by TMZ, while the pop diva belted out her newest single "Infinity" on the BBMA stage, J.Lo was casually scrolling through her phone — perhaps scrollin' through the 'Gram? — barely acknowledging Carey's stellar vocals. She looked up a couple of times to exchange a few words with her date Casper Smart, who sat beside her, but she went right back to her phone after the brief chat.

Even when Carey hit her signature whistle note during the performance, prompting several of the front-row celebs like Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris to applaud, Lopez remained unbothered.

It wasn't all shade, though. As the performance concluded and the house lights went up — and live broadcast cameras zoomed in on the crowd — the "Booty" singer abandoned her phone duties and gave Mariah a hand.

Battle of the divas? Not quite. Harmless shade? Possibly so.
