I’m not a fan of too many Christmas songs outside of the Motown Christmas classics, but Mariah Carey‘s All I Want For Christmasis one of my favorite holiday songs. It just instantly puts me in a happy mood, since its release in 1994. But she’s just marked a milestone with this long-time hit: She’s reached platinum status in the UK, according to OfficialCharts.com.
Mariah’s much-loved seasonal classic passed the landmark sales threshold yesterday, establishing itself as one of the UK’s all-time greatest hits. The US singer was triumphant when told of the achievement yesterday, tellingOfficialCharts.com:
“I just landed back in the US after performing a charity show in Africa for the Red Cross. I’m driving home looking at the snow in my hometown of NYC, celebrating selling 1 million copies of All I Want for Christmas Is You in the UK. Thank you, thank you to all of my British fans! Love, Mariah xxxx”
With another album on the horizon, Mariah Carey is hitting the media strip fairly hard. Stopping by Hot 97 and talking with Angie Martinez, Mariah brought along Jermaine Dupri, some sparkling apple cider and mini personal fans. She’s so extra. LOL But the conversation covered everything from her marriage with Nick Cannon to her time on American Idol.
She says that she thought it would be a three person panel and would get to enjoy hanging out with her friend Randy Jackson. But even the “nice, monetary moment” couldn’t save the experience for her. Oh, and I don’t know about you, but I don’t think that’s sparkling cider they’re sipping on…mmmm hmmm. Check out the interview below:
Did you all happen to see the super sexy pic Mariah Carey tweeted to her husband Nick Cannon for his birthday the other day? Well apparently the folks at the National Enquirer weren’t falling for it. They said the picture came right after they called Mariah and Nick‘s reps about rumors regarding a divorce.
Now Nick and Mariah divorce rumors were circulating since they got together but I guess Nick got fed up. He jumped on Twitter and shot down the rumors with the tweet above. I mean, I don’t believe anything the National Enquirer says but they crunched the numbers. Do y’all know how much money Mariah would have to be protecting in the event of a divorce?
