Over an astounding 25 year career Mimi has had her share of ups and downs. There’s been talk of diva behavior (no surprise there), vocal acrobatics gone wrong and being off key. But love her or hate her there’s no denying Mariah Carey is an icon with staying power. Her residency at Cesar’s Palace runs through February, this month she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and just this week she performed to an adoring crowd of thousands in Israel.
Here are 5 things I’m likin’ about Mariah:
1. She can sing her A** off with that five octave range and has the ability to reach notes beyond the 7th octave.
2. This lady knows how to make a hit record. Charting 18 #1’s (that’s right count them) and still putting music out there.
3. She’s no quitter- After a devastating fail with her film Glitter Mimi came back to deliver a “put yourself out there” award winning performance in Precious. I mean a Diva without makeup is like me without music.
4. During a recent press event she discussed her disdain for those reality stars who reach celebrity status without having a craft or an art that they’re famous for. You gotta love her for that.
5. She’s hitting the small screen in Season 2 of Empire. As if there weren’t enough reasons to be glued to Empire already.
