Recently, super producer L.A. Reid shared during an appearance on "The Real" that Carey and Bey would be his "ideal" Verzuz.
A reporter for E! News brought that up in an interview and asked the "Queen of Christmas" if she would consider taking on "Queen Bey."
The "All I Want For Christmas Is You" performer, 52, was asked about the possibility of taking on her fellow diva during an interview with E! on Wednesday — and she took the opportunity to share her love for Queen Bey.
"Oh, stop! I love you, but we can't ask that question," Carey said. "First of all, I love Beyoncé and I admire her so much as a performer for what she's done for the world and everything else, so I ain't answering that question."
"I'll be disrespecting myself and I'm not going to do that, because it's Christmas time," Carey added.
The Queen has spoken.
"I love Beyoncé and I admire her so much as a performer for what she's done for the world and everything else," Carey said.
When pressed about competing with the "Lemonade" singer during a Verzuz battle, Carey played coy.
"I'd be disrespecting myself and I'm not going to do that, because it's Christmas time," she said.

Fans of both stars were excited by the possibility of a showdown between the pair when music mogul L.A. Reid suggested it during an appearance on The Talk last month.
The fans want to know: Who would Mariah Carey be willing to do a Verzuz battle against? Though the list of potential opponents that are able to hold a candle to her 19 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hits, six Billboard 200 No. 1 albums and five Grammy Awards is short, there’s one singer who Carey is against entertaining speculations of possible Verzuz battle.
"Mariah Carey versus Beyoncé, bring that on," Reid said. "The fans that they both have, the hits they have, the legacy they have."
The two musical queens have a storied friendship.
Beyoncé visited Carey's Christmas show in New York City last year where the pair took a selfie together and posed for a group photo backstage with their children.
"I love you @Beyonce thank you sooooo much for coming out tonight," Carey wrote at the time alongside a photo of herself with the "Halo" singer.
The inaugural Verzuz battle occurred on March 24, 2020, when Swizz Beatz and Timbaland appeared on Instagram together for an unannounced song battle, which would later become the premise of the show. The web series invites two musicians, typically in R&B and hip-hop, to highlight songs from their discography and share stories behind the making of the music in two 10-song rounds. Past guests have included Brandy and Monica, Ashanti and Keyshia Cole, Ludacris and Nelly, and more.
