Mariah Carey, Jordan and Iraq

>From USA TODAY Monday, February 8, 1999:
At a press conference to release her latest single, 'I Just
Called', an unremarkable cover version of Stevie Wonders 
song, Mariah Carey expressed deep sorrow at the death of a 
'dear friend'.  Mariah told CNN "I'm inconsolable at the 
present time, I was a very good friend of Jordan, he was 
probably the greatest basketball player this country has 
ever seen. We will never see his like again."      
When told by reporters that it was King Hussein of Jordan, 
and not Michael Jordan, who had died, a dazed Mariah was 
led away in tears by her security  staff.
          Mariah's press office released a statement later 
saying that the      singer had been under 'enormous 
pressure' recently, and would like to      apologise for 
seeming a little vacant.  She also stated that her      
thoughts were with Iraq at this 'terrible time'!!!
