Mariah Carey and Derek Jeter

Mariah Carey and Derek Jeter

1/72

In an interview with Vulture, the pop diva confirmed that two of her 1998 tracks -- "My All" and "The Roof" -- were about the former New York Yankees shortstop. Carey and Jeter's fling came toward the end of her marriage to Tommy Mottola, with whom she finalized her divorce in 1998. The musician and former pro athlete met at a dinner party and began flirting via text message shortly thereafter. As Carey reveals in her upcoming memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, the fact that many fan theories about her songs were "already out there" made it easier for her to share further details publicly. As such, Carey told Vulture that she "of course" remembers every detail about her first kiss with Jeter, which she describes in detail on the track "The Roof." The kiss itself took place on Jeter's roof with Carey sporting aa leather Chanel skirt and a bottle of Moët sitting nearby.
