If you can’t handle her at her worst, then you don’t deserve her at her best.
We’ve had our share of divas and superstar artists coming to Singapore from Britney to Harry Styles (twice!) but in November, we’re mighty chuffed to be welcoming the ultimate diva, Mariah Carey, to Singapore again. I mean if I had a five-octave vocal range, that sort of vocal gymnastics, and possess the ability to sing with a whistle register, I’d be a diva too, just sayin’. Say what you want about her antics, we’ll still be forever fans. Here’s the best (and worst) of Mariah, from her brunette ringlet days to the Elusive Chanteuse she’s evolved into….
Christmas Mariah is forever the best Mariah
This was pretty recent and her voice is still decent here, okay haters?
Classic Mariah with killing it at Madison Square Garden
This will always be how I want to remember Mariah, a brunette in ringlets belting out these huge songs with huge notes in a huge venue. In fact, this whole concert was flawless.
Mariah asking for a cup of tea
“They told me there would be tea. Oh! It’s a disaster.” Also me, in the morning before having tea.
Golden age of MTV
They just don’t do music videos like these anymore. Cheesy narrative, sudden choreography, a rap in the middle, surprise girl fights and more.
Mariah Carey knows how to throw shade
When asked about Jennifer Lopez once, Mariah Carey said she did not know her but went on to praise Beyonce. The shade! Other people she doesn’t know: Demi Lovato.
She’s not perfect, just like us
We get it, sometimes we have those days where we just don’t want to be working. And when you’re in front of the New Year’s Eve Countdown at Times Square, you have to keep it professional. Plus, she did so much better the next year even though no one gave her tea.
I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’
If you have a bevy of dancers surrounding you, making you look good and all… just let them do all the work. Mariah seems to think so. She even gets them to push her around on a jetski somewhere in the video. Ace.
