Read: Mariah Carey is the QUEEN OF CHRISTMAS
Kelly Clarkson is getting a little hopped up right now , what with her Christmas album selling more copies than Brit Brit’s new cd in it’s sixth week, and so the Butterfly Empress of Christmas herself flew down from her spanx bound castle up in the winter sky on a unicorn to grace Tamron from The Today Show with her heavenly yuletide presence.
NBC and a crew of about 40 lighting engineers rocked up to Mimi’s palace to promote….ehrm….I dont know, Mimi – at Christmas?
Mimi talked about how she’s constantly been downplaying her injury to her arm like the humble angel she is.
Mariah then went on to talk over Tamron throughout the entire interview and almost fall out of her negligee. Yes, that’s right, Mariah made NBC come to her house, and emerged in full makeup, and her negligee…..
The best part of Mimi was that she was in her “special room” which is a room where her awards have been strategically placed for film crews to capture whenever they visit.
When Tamron valiantly tried to give the interview some relevant context by referring to “All I Want For Christmas (Is Mimi’s Annual Royalites)” Mimi, always on point, was quick to note “I have other songs, but whatever, whatever” before interrupting again to draw attention to her negligee.
Mariah even had a “re-positioning video” at the ready, where such images as Mariah hugging Babs Streisand, and pan zooms of her toilet were used to allow her to gracefully segue between stations without her bad side ever showing, or NBC getting an eyeful of tit.
Alas, not one to disappoint, Mariah then almost immediately ensured one of her tits would be front and center from her robe, and gave a small statuesque pose next to the tree, apologizing demurely for her beauty.
Meanwhile just off camera, one of the army of lighting operators drafted in for the job of correctly lighting Mimi flails with some ND filter and Mimi-friendly lighting gels for the latter half of the interview, at one stage appearing on camera accidentally.
Poor Tamron Hall deserves some sort of lifetime journalism award for surviving Mimi and trying with every inch of her existence to create a story that didnt plainly say “We’re fourth in the ratings today, please watch”. And poor Mimi, she didn’t even get to talk about how she writes every one of her own songs.
