Mariah Carey, the narcissistic vocal acrobat is all but ready to empty her embryonic cargo in the form of twins, but of course she’s had to go and expose herself to the world prior to giving birth, unoriginally following the trend set by Demi Moore which has been replicated by various celebrity mums-to-be including Britney Spears.
Word is that Carey felt the need to subject us to her nudity and had the intimate shots taken as part of a feature in Life & Style magazine. I can only imagine she looked like an orange space hopper lying under a hammock with pair of footballs swinging about in it.
I can never fathom what possesses celebrities to think that ‘true fans’ want to see them naked. Is there not more to life than a bit of flesh and an excessive vocal range?
Apparently not according to Carey who told Life & Style: “I was feeling very vulnerable about taking pictures at all right now, but then I didn’t want to miss this opportunity to document this once-in-a-lifetime experience, my ultimate goal was to share this incredibly personal moment with my true fans.”
No Mariah, be honest; your ultimate goal was to squeeze more money out of the situation and grab some additional publicity.
Luckily the pop midget is well in-tune with her children and can even tell which one is doing the kicking – probably to get out in order to escape their mother’s singing.
“The babies were kicking almost the entire time; it was unbelievable, especially the girl; clearly she’s a diva in training! We didn’t start shooting until 1:30 a.m. because I was in the hospital from the night before until the day of the shoot with contractions five minutes apart!”
So the ‘diva’ is set to become even more misshapen after dropping the twins (the ones in her stomach, not the ones swinging about her waist like wrecking balls) and having had her legs extended in Photoshop for one of her album sleeves, one wonders what depths Carey will sink to next in order to keep up appearances.
They say you can’t polish a turd, but you can sprinkle glitter on it.
If nothing else her experience has changed her attitude towards motherhood and all the joys it brings but she acts as if she’s the first woman ever to have a baby or two: “Now I have so much respect for mothers everywhere, especially those who’ve had difficult pregnancies or given birth to multiples. We need to have Mother’s Day once a week!”
