Mariah in high spirits with another hit holiday album, Merry Christmas II You sat down with The Advocate:

On bisexual rumors:

If it makes somebody happy to say that, then whatever, but that’s not the reality. I don’t have a discriminatory policy of who I’m friends with, so yes, I’m friends with women who are gay – gay, straight, it doesn’t matter to me. So I don’t get upset when I hear that, because it is what it is. I guess I could lie about it to seem more exciting.

On having a gay son:

I guess we’d handle it as best we could in terms of being supportive. … I just hope for whoever’s going to be happy and that I can be a great mother to.

On having a lesbian daughter who won’t wear Mariah’s tight hand-me-down dresses and butterfly jewelry:

No comment. [Laughs] No, the thing is that you can’t try to make somebody something they’re not. Everybody’s like, “Oh, if she has a girl, everything’s going to be pink, blah, blah, blah.” But I don’t think you should go totally overboard on that. You should wait and see what the child wants.

On the rumor that Lindsay Lohan tried to seduce her:

No, but I have hung out with her at a club. She was with Sean Lennon, and they came over. I remember he was playing my Hello Kitty guitar, and we were all just singing, laughing, and making up songs. It really couldn’t have been more innocent.
