Mariah Carey isn't letting anyone get in the way of her success.
The "All I Want for Christmas Is You" singer was a guest on Friday's Today show, where she opened up about her decision to continue filming her new E! documentary series, Mariah's World, after calling off her engagement to James Packer.
The network originally said the show, which premieres Sunday at 9 p.m. ET, would focus on "the overwhelming demands of [Mariah's] time as she launches her world tour, plans a wedding and is a loving doting mommy to her twins." However, Carey's Australian billionaire ex was noticeably missing in the promos released earlier this month.
"Oh, I can't give somebody that much power," Carey, 46, explained on Today. "Are you kidding me? ... You gotta keep on pushing."
Following her split from Packer, rumors started swirling that Carey had sparked up a romantic relationship with her longtime backup dancer, Bryan Tanaka. Recent photos of the two packing on the PDA in Hawaii, which you can see in the video below, seemingly confirmed that they're more than just friends.
But when hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb asked Carey what's really going on between her and the 33-year-old entertainer, she dodged the question.
"I refuse to answer under the grounds that it may incriminate me," she said.
She had no problem answering questions about her ex-husband, Nick Cannon, however. Over the past few years, Carey has developed a great, amicable relationship with the father of her 5-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
"It's important for the kids," she said of how they've put their differences aside and learned to get along so well. "He's part of their lives forever."
Cannon and their children make a few appearances in the upcoming series, a decision Carey says was concerning at first. "I wanted to make sure that [the kids] were comfortable at all times," she explained. "I never want to be like a stage mom. That's not me."
