- Mariah Carey decided to join the 10-year challenge on social media
- But the American singer was a little confused about how it works, insisting that she defies time
- While some mocked the singer, her loyal 'Lambily' came to her defence, praising the ageless queen
US songbird, Mariah Carey, has basically won the decade challenge with her latest tweet.
For those who don’t know what the decade challenge is, it is a challenge that sees someone post a picture of themselves in the beginning of the decade next to one taken at the end of the decade. This is usually to show their glow up, and the challenge has taken the internet by storm.
However, Mariah Carey said she didn’t quite get the challenge. She posted two of the exact same photos of herself on Twitter, and captioned the post, “Time is not something I acknowledge.”
But tweeps had a field day with her post. While some praised the 49-year-old All I Want For Christmas Is You hit-maker, whose holiday song recently topped the US charts after 25 years, other made fun of her statement and created memes from it.
But her loyal fans came to Mariah’s defence. When one user commented that the singer wouldn’t look so good if she wasn’t airbrushed, to which another responded, “Mariah doesn’t get airbrushed. Air is lucky to get brushed by Mariah.”
About three weeks ago, Briefly.co.za reported that all fans of American singer, Mariah Carey, know and love her classic Christmas song; All I Want for Christmas is You, which was released in 1994.
While the song was released over two decades and a half ago, in the hearts of many and on charts, it remains number one. Just recently, the classic Christmas song broke three Guinness World Records and the singer was presented with copies of her pages from the 'Guinness World Records 2020 Edition,' along with her record title certificate, by an official adjudicator from the organisation.
Celebrating the achievement, Carey shared photos from the special moment her certificate was presented to her by Michael Empric onstage during her show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
