Pretty much everyone knows who Mariah Carey is, but it turns out Mariah isn’t as great at identifying even her fellow pop stars, and one time actually mixed up TheChainsmokers with a popular boy band.
The EDM duo revealed in a recent interview that they once met Mariah, only to have her confuse them with One Direction. “I remember seeing her and I was like, ‘Oh my God, “Fantasy” and “Honey,”‘ Alex Pall said on “The Morning Mashup.” “And she was like, ‘Dude I love you guys!’ And we were like, ‘Wow, you know who we are?’ And she was like, ‘One Direction, right?'”
After hearing about the interview Mariah was quick to poke fun at her mix up, noting, “@TheChainsmokers of course I know you!! I love your song ‘That’s What Makes You Beautiful,'” which, of course, is a 1D single.

Justin Bieber is being treated for depression and now a source adds that one of the reasons he’s getting help is so he can become a good husband.
“He wants to be the best possible husband for Hailey,” a source tells “People.” “It’s one thing to have your issues when you’re single, but when you’re married, there’s two people’s happiness at stake. He’s working on himself so that he can be a good partner to her.”
And while the sessions have been hard, Justin is said to be totally committed to treatment. “His emotions are raw, but he knows that this counseling — however painful — is what he needs as he moves forward with life,” the source notes, adding that Justin’s been meeting with pastors and licensed professionals. “He’s feeling very positive that he’s uncovering some root issues, and everyone is optimistic that this will help him figure out his next chapter.”
