What is Mariah Carey's song about?

I'm trying to figure out what the lyrics to Mariah Carey's new song are. The title is called Obsessed and I love the song, but can someone tell me the lyrics to the song?

    Is Mariah Carey's 'Obsessed' Directed At Eminem?

    Singer seems to get back at the Detroit MC in the lyrics to her new single.

    Apparently Mariah Carey has responded to Eminem's taunts from his track "Bagpipes From Baghdad" with her own stinging account of things on "Obsessed," the first single from her upcoming album Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.

    The bouncy number debuted Tuesday (June 16) and from the onset Carey seems to be giving her side of the story. "I was like, 'Why are you so obsessed with me?' " Carey says before the music begins.

    The singer never mentions the rapper by name, but the lyrics suggest Em may be the target, as Carey talks about the target's drug problems. "It must be the weed, it must be the E/ 'Cause you be poppin', you get it poppin'," Carey sings. Em recently opened up about his battle with drugs on his latest LP, Relapse.

    On the album's "Bagpipes From Baghdad," Em raps about taking Carey back from Nick Cannon. (Carey has denied Eminem's claims that they dated for six months.) "Nick Cannon better back the f--- up," Em warns the actor/musician on the track. "I'm not playing/ I want her back, you punk."

    Cannon fired back at Eminem last month, before the rapper softened his dis in a later interview, defusing the tension.

    Carey hadn't responded publicly, but on "Obsessed," however, she seems to be getting her laughs in, particularly on the song's chorus.

    "Why are you so obsessed with me/ Boy I wanna know/ Lying that you're sexing me/ When everybody knows/ It's clear that you're upset with me," she sings in an Auto-Tune-tinged voice.

    Throughout the song, Carey calls the track's subject "delusional" and "confused" and says that the person must be "losing their mind."

    Singer/songwriter The-Dream confirmed in a previous interview that the song is definitely directed at someone — but the "Dancing on the Moon" singer who, along with producing partner Tricky Stewart, helmed most of Carey's next project, would not confirm exactly who. "Obsessed" is currently streaming on Carey's Web site.

    At press time, a rep for Eminem had not granted MTV News' request for comment.

    Now Eminem has released a track called the warning which in turn threatens to release nude pics of Mariah after their brief fling in 2001... it's an all out war!

    It is a counter-arugment to Eminem saying that he 'did her' etc.

    So she's saying he's obsessed with her and trying to make him look dumb. I bet Nick Cannon wrote the lyrics. lol

    Source(s): I hate people that can simply copy and paste - so there's an actual anser from my brain, not the internet!

    It's about herself.

    Like every other self absorbed melody she's ever penned.

    It sounds worse now because she can no longer carry a tune. It's too bad vocal cords are not as easily replaced as breasts.
