Me too. She has paid her dues and shouldnt have to put up with crap. Her shade is good.
Back in the day, I liked her music a lot and felt sorry for her b/c of her family issues, her moving out and seeking her fortune at a terribly young age and her controlling marriage to her 1st husband, but didnt consider myself a fan...BUT...BUT!!!! I became a fan when the album Butterfly came out when I was in Japan and I saw how people were practically falling out over her album release and she deserved it b/c her voice is just that stellar and THENNN quite a few years ago, I was in the LV store in Manhattan with my mom early one day, like 12 noon lol and I see a vision of fabulousness float & glide in with Andre Leon Talley right behind her floating also and she had on a floor length red gown with a train
early as hell in the day looking amazing like wtf amazing...she was floating!
I was discreet with my glance and that was the closest to star struck as I have ever been and I have seen/rub shoulders with/met/worked with many A-Listers and didnt give a dam, didnt feel any special awe. But Mariah was everything I want a top performer to be (even though she was probably dressed to the nines b/c she had just left a photo shoot or something) but still, I like my celebs to be on point & mysterious and her quick shade lets you know that she is not to be messed with
