Mariah Carey makes Frito pie in Funny or Die video, and it looks terrible

Posted on

Mariah Carey sings “Boy, you actin’ so corny like Fritos,” in her song “Infinity,” and the singer gave a little (fake) background on the line in a Funny or Die video that features Carey and Funny or Die writer Bryan Safi hosting a cooking show.

“I had an Italian lover named Frito years ago,” she explains. “Frito stole my car. So he was kind of a jerk.” She tells this story all while wearing surgical gloves and putting together her version of a Frito pie, which appears to consist of Fritos, olive oil, lettuce… and M&Ms (for those who aren’t familiar, this is what a real Frito pie looks like).

The steps for making this dish include “wear a diamond ring”—Mariah’s is in the shape of a butterfly, of course—and “feed your celebrity friend”—in this case, director Brett Ratner. Watch the whole tutorial below.

Carey’s Mariah Carey #1 to Infinity, a greatest hits collection, comes out May 18.
