Carey: 'I've Always Been Hip-hop'

Singer MARIAH CAREY has refuted claims her new album E=MC2's hip-hop theme is a departure from her usual sound.
The star - who duetted with Irish crooners Westlife on a 2000 cover of Phil Collins ballad Against All Odds - insists she's always been in touch with her hip-hop side after former Wu Tang Clan rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard guested on one of her tracks.
She says, "Aargh! It gets so annoying when people make out I have gone all hip-hop just to get in on a trend. I sang with Ol' Dirty Bastard, may he rest in peace, back in 1996 for the remixed version of Fantasy."
Carey admits she greatly enjoyed working with the late star, who died in 2004 of heart failure: "I love him and I miss him. Working with him was a highlight for me."
