I am willing to go out on a limb and say Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is the best holiday song ever. It’s hard to believe she put that out in 1994, and it’s also hard to believe that she’s just now released her second holiday album, Merry Christmas II You, featuring the Billboard hit “Oh Santa!”
Her Christmas special, Mariah Carey: Merry Christmas to You, aired yesterday and on Friday, she’ll be featured in TNT’s Christmas in Washington special. The 40-year-old, pregnant super diva (in a good way) is also slated to be a part of ABC’s broadcast of the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade. She’s busier than Santa.
Carey recently talked to The Advocate about her reign as the queen of holiday pop music and about the possibility of giving birth to “a little lesbian,” gay marriage and apparent rumors about Lindsay Lohan trying to seduce her.
Mimi on gay marriage:
When asked about having “a little lesbian who won’t wear your tight hand-me-down dresses and butterfly jewelry” (‘cause lesbians can’t be femme? Hello, The L Word.):
Is she or isn’t she bisexual: the rumors, continued:
Thanks, MC. Some days, when I’m depressed and listening to “All I Want For Christmas Is You” on repeat, in July, I will just try to make myself happier by chanting, “Mariah Carey is bisexual in my heart!”
Did Lindsay Lohan really try to seduce her? (Maybe Mariah was wearing sneakers and a fedora?)
Mariah Carey’s advice on dealing with high school bullying:
Another cheerful thing to focus on: Mariah Carey holiday music. Though I seriously doubt any new songs can come close to her classic, which I’ve had on repeat since October.
