As I've said many times before, Mariah Carey is a living legend, a DIVA with the range, and a songwriter and producer who has had 18 No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and many, many critically acclaimed albums and singles.
She is also the undisputed queen of Christmas and all things festive!
Of course, being the queen of Christmas comes with some occupational hazards...like having to tell people when it's officially time to start playing Christmas music:
And literally having to tell them over and over again:
Well, finally, at 12 a.m. Nov. 1, Mariah proclaimed with a royal decree (aka a brilliant tweet) that it is officially the Christmas season:
Of course, Mariah made sure to get the A-OK from Santa himself:
And as if that weren't enough, Mariah made it extra official by also dropping a new version of the music video for her ICONIC Christmas classic, "All I Want for Christmas Is You":
So there you have it — the queen of Christmas has spoken: You can start playing Christmas music!!! But especially "All I Want for Christmas Is You" 'cause we need to get that to No. 1!!!
