mariah carey made her birthday guests dress as mariah carey
Would you expect anything less from the original diva?
Mariah Carey is a diva—and that's exactly how we like her. She certainly has a right to feel self satisfied: she's spent more weeks in the Billboard number one spot than any recording artist in history. She's also masterfully shady: her interview archives are a veritable masterclass in a sly diss. There was that time she pretended to forgot who JLo was, that time she didn't know who Eminem was, that time she forgot about American Idol co-judge Nicki Minaj, and that time she forgot JLo again. Oh, and the other time she forgot about Eminem. She's very forgetful.
Anyway, it makes a lot of sense she'd do something diva-ish for her birthday. Boy did she deliver. Mariah came through with the perfect theme: making guests dress as her. Mariah from a video, Mariah from the 90s, current day Mariah—whatever. Mariah dressed as her alter ego, Bianca, who you might remember from her 1999 Heartbreaker video. 17 years later, it's still a strong look.
