Mariah Carey has always been known to be the pettiest singer of our time. The pop diva (and I mean diva in every sense of the word) is often times regarded as difficult to work with and a bit of a hot head, but in all fairness, she does have the voice of an angel. And, over the years, she has proven herself worthy of her position on the charts. But, if one thing is for sure, Mariah Carey hates being known only for her hit holiday song, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” In retrospect, it’s probably her own damn fault for writing that song in the first place. Any artist knows that when you produce a song, it may take off or it may flop. If it does take off, you’re going to be remembered for that song forever. So hey, Mariah, maybe next time don’t produce a Christmas song if you don’t want to be remembered for it – just saying. But, I’d never say that to her face of course, because Mariah Carey’s comebacks are more painful than a right-hook to the face. In fact, one interviewer is probably in therapy after the way Carey tore him apart during an interview for The Hollywood Reporter.
In the interview that was published this week, journalist Seth Abramovich was just trying to do his job and ask Carey questions about her music and her life – when he touched on a rather difficult topic for her (can you guess what it is?).
Seth: So now they seem to call you “the Queen of Christmas.”
Mariah: “They.” I don’t know who “they” are. That is not my appellation.
Attitude much? But, Seth tried to redeem himself (hint: it didn’t go well).
Seth: You’re not thrilled with that title.
Mariah: It’s not that I’m not thrilled. I just don’t think I deserve it. I’m just a person who likes Christmas, OK? Who happened to write some songs.
Seth: Tell me about your childhood and what Christmas meant to you as young Mariah.
Mariah: What are you trying to insinuate? As “little” Mariah, I think you meant.
Word to the wise – never tell a woman she is “old” now, or even insinuate it (especially someone like Mariah Carey). Of course, people clearly realized that the interview was very much everything Mariah Carey is about – attitude, attitude, attitude with a side of a little diva.
