Mariah Carey turns 44 on 27 March and we’re celebrating with her craziest quotes of all time
Happy birthday Mariah Carey! The divalicious singer turns 44 today and we’re celebrating with a look back at her finest (and most controversial) quotes ever, which have undoubtedly made Mariah all the more endearing to her adoring army of Lambs – and Twitter gold to everyone else.
“My mother is Irish, my father is black and Venezuelan and me – I’m tan, I guess.”
Err… we’re not sure that’s how it works, Mariah.
“There is a light at the end of the tunnel…hopefully it’s not a freight train!”
Don’t walk into the light, Mimi!
“Butterflies are always following me, everywhere I go.”
Like every great Disney princess, Mariah also has her own mythical, magical followers.
“One day I promised God that if he would give me my voice back I would never smoke again. I got three octaves back after quitting.”
Ask and thou shalt be given (back) to you.
“I’d rather be onstage with a pig – a duet with Jennifer Lopez and me just ain’t going to happen.”
Could Mariah throw any more shade on J-Lo? What happened to sisterhood? Tsk.
“I decided to make my own ski-wear range after I found there were no fashion outfits for me to wear on the piste.”
Mariah has clearly never seen Victoria Beckham’s Chanel skis…
“It's in my genes. My mother was an opera singer. I'm clearly dramatic.”
Her outlandish behavior? Mariah got it from her momma.
“I can't wear flat shoes. My feet repel them.”
So that explains why you’ll only ever see MC in her Christian Louboutins.
“I know I can be diva-ish sometimes, but I have to be in control. The nature of my life, the nature of what I do, is divadom, it really is.”
The queen has spoken and she reigns supreme in divadom on her diva throne. Got it?
