So I have a nomination for Stuff White People Like: Mariah Carey.
She performed live on MTV at the Hills premier party last night, and let me first give the woman props because this is ON MTV... I mean like EVERYTHING is fake, and despite that, this was no lip synch. Mariah went out there and did it right. She looked a little out of it and wobbly, like she's probably taking a LOT of xanax, which... well, she probably is, we all know she takes some rides on the crazy train, but you know what? WE DON'T CARE. Everyone loves Mariah! She's an institution. She's the white people's claim to "being able to sing", our match to Whitney Houston (and now with less crack!). Plus, she's brilliant. Her songs are amazing. We Belong Together instantaneously became every girl's favorite song. I LOVE MARIAH, crazy pills or no. She sounded like she had a bit of a hoarse throat, which made me even prouder of her for really singing... but at the end, when she got into belting, which is really the Mariah we all know and love - the one you get for the final chorus of the song, and she goes reeeeally high... she's amazing. She was amazing. She's like the Meryl Streep of pop music (I'm sure Madonna thought she was but YOU'RE NOT, OKAY?).
God when did this blog become so Hills-centric? Lauren looked pretty.
