“I’m wearing these glasses because we’re in fluorescent lighting, and I have a rule which states that I will not be seen in fluorescent lighting without sunglasses.”
This is Mariah’s World and we are merely spectators! The new eight-part E! reality series documenting the life of Mariah Carey promises to capture the real Mariah, which lies somewhere “between the diva and the legend.”
The trailer gives us a glimpse into the fabulous world of Carey as she goes about preparing for her Sweet Sweet Fantasy tour as well as her upcoming nuptials to James Packer. “We’re going to get Noah’s Arc at your wedding,” says a wedding planner to Carey via phone, to which the 46-year-old mother-of-two replies, “It’s the most important event that has ever happened!”
There’s lots of hair flicking, couch lying and eye rolling. Just don’t call it a reality show! Her divaness would prefer we call it a documentary series. “I refuse to call it a reality show,” Mariah told The New York Times back in March. “I thought it would be a good opportunity to kind of, like, show my personality and who I am, even though I feel like my real fans have an idea of who I am. A lot of people have misperceptions about this and that.”
“I am not Cinderella,” Mariah declares at the start of the trailer. “My life has not been a fairy tale!” She adds, “Forget the image, forget the rumors — I owe this to the fans.”
The documentary series is set to premiere later this year. Stay tuned!
