27 Reasons Mariah Is The Realest Diva Of All Time
She's still got it.
Mariah Carey's new album, Me. I am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse, is FINALLY here and it's better than we could've ever imagined.
But the wait was worth it.
"#Beautiful" featuring Miguel was last year's perfect breezy summer anthem...
... and she continues the joyful, carefree feels on "You Don't Know What To Do" featuring Wale.
So, haters be gone, here's why Mariah is still the realest diva in the game:
1. Like any real diva, she knows her angles.
2. And Mimi's always been changing up her look – from rocking her curls in the early 90s...
4. No one else could look this sexy in the rain – the literal glistening epitome of perfection.
5. And only MC could make a cast for a broken wrist look this fabulous.
That fur! Those feathers! Those studs!
6. She's the Queen of Classy, Subtle Shade.
7. And she doesn't hide her emotions.
8. Mariah knows that just because it doesn't look like you're working hard, doesn't mean you aren't.
The ultimate truth is, she just DGAF.
10. And as a real diva, she has no reservations in sharing when she feels sexy and good about herself.
11. And it's great, because she inspires us to love ourselves, too.
12. She can kick it casual, in cutoff jorts and Converse...
13. And also totally love and embrace her glam side.
14. Everyone should channel their inner Mariah the next time they take a photo.
15. Mariah keeps things real with her fans, giving them glimpses of some of her sweetest family moments...
16. And some private ones, too.
17. It makes us so happy to see her so in love.
18. And she teaches us that being in love also means responsibility – being there in good times and bad.
19. She only hangs with the best company. Like Stevie Wonder.
20. And Whitney.
21. Even though media liked to pit her against her fellow divas, she always showed that it was all love between them.
22. She loves giving her background dancers their shine.
In quite possibly the best music video of all time, "Dreamlover."
