Mariah Carey is out of her mind

Mariah Carey tells V magazine that she keeps twenty humidifiers around her bed and that if she appears too sexy in pictures it’s not her fault. She says:

“Literally I’ll have twenty humidifiers around the bed. Basically it’s like sleeping in a steam room. The bed is all terry-cloth, the ceiling is pitched so the water can’t fall on my head, and it drips down to my side, and the TV is behind glass.”

Carey, who is known for her provocative on-and-off-stage outfits, also discussed her sexy image – and blamed the media.

“I think that a lot of women are just trying to live up to the stereotypes and to the standard that’s set on TV and in magazines, which is airbrushed women who weigh 3 pounds. And it’s not fair. It’s not easy. But everybody gets really protective of me. They’re, like, ‘Be less sexy.'” She said that if she overdoes the sexy look “it’s not intentional – if you film my body a certain way, it’s gonna look like a certain way. But honestly, I’ve been the same way since I was a little kid. Like, I’m just emulating whatever’s on a magazine.”

I suspect either Mariah Carey’s maids replaced all her mirrors with life-sized posters of Cindy Crawford or she’s confused the definitions of “sexy” and “obese” again. She definitely needs to be less of a lot of things but “sexy” doesn’t even make the top five. Although “hungry” is probably up there. As is “looking like a plus-size model.”
