Mariah Carey Thought The Chainsmokers Were One Direction

Mariah Carey Mistook The Chainsmokers For One Direction — Cue the "I Don't Know Them" Memes

It's about time we actually start believing Mariah Carey when she says, "I don't know her." During a recent interview with Sirius XM's The Morning Mash Up, The Chainsmokers — the group made up of members Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall — hilariously recalled a time in which they briefly crossed paths with the musical legend only for her to mistake them for another famous pop group. According to the duo's story, they once approached Mariah after spotting her at an award show, and their encounter took a pretty awkward turn.

"I remember seeing her and I was like 'Oh, my God. "Fantasy" and "Honey,"' and she was like, 'Dude, I love you guys,'" Alex told the hosts. "And we're like, 'Wow, you know who we are?' and she was like, 'One Direction, right?'" Cue the hysterical laughter from everyone in the room, including Alex and Andrew themselves. There's no doubt that experiencing something like that was a tad embarrassing for all parties involved, but Mariah being the queen that she is, responded to a clip of the interview on Wednesday to poke a little fun at herself and the group. "@TheChainsmokers of course I know you!! I love your song 'That's What Makes You Beautiful," she tweeted, jokingly alluding to One Direction's 2012 song.

In Mariah's defense, she's a pretty busy woman, so we can't exactly blame her for not knowing everyone's names.
