How many Spanx does it take till you get to the center of Mariah Carey?!

Take a peek at MiMi's FIRST promotional pic for American Idol. Sure, maybe she got some help … but who doesn't need assistance when the whole NATION has it's eyes on you!

In case you are blissfully unaware…

It was recently confirmed that the butterfly diva extraordinaire would be parking her exquisite derrière in one of the vacant American Idol judging seats for the upcoming season, AND that she would be raking in a cool $18 million!

OK, now we just need one more WUNNERFUL personality to sit next to the Fantasy singer…

    That is some bad photoshopping on her waistline.

    she looks stupid

    Last year I only watched it a little, this year I won't bother at all. It is supposed to be about finding talent - not about the judges. And the voting decisions are made by a bunch of 12 year old girls who vote over and over again. No thanks.

    That's the smile of someone who's been squeezed, pulled and forced to take a picture against their will….And this picture is not new, just saw shots of her on the daily news and Mariah did not look like that…Photoshop and old picture recycling, the best inventions since sliced bread :) ….

    She's Gorgeous and has a beautiful voice to back it up! Don't hate Jlovers because your "diva" can't sing :)

    Geesh, retouched much?

  12. marcella says – reply to this


    And btw, Perez why aren't you addressing the "obvious"…WHAT THE HELL DID SHE DO TO HER FACE???? Botox much????

    I guess Nick is forgetting that he said Idol would have to pay her at least $20 million for her to do it — I guess she jumped on the $18 million. That is because no one thinks she is relevant anymore. Why can't these one-time (long time ago) artists just go away and retire with their money? No one wants to see (and listen) to Mariah Carey's mean-spirited BS on Idol!

    That is the most forced, awkward smile I've ever seen. Also, she's got the awkward arm going on too. I refused to watch American Idol because JLo was a judge. Looks like I'll be missing yet another year of Idol, because I sure won't be wanting to watch Mariah Carey either.

  15. 15

    Highly photoshopped. I dont get it, she looks good, why tune her waist until it looks ridiculous.

  16. 16

    Nice Photoshop, fatty! She is gonna be more f-ed up than Paula!!! Now, there's a reason to watch.

  17. 17

    OMG let the cheesyness and Tackyness begin!!! omg She could sing…but that's all tacky tacky tacky…can someone get her JLO's stylish please! and didn't jenny craig ask for their money back because they caught Mariah Scary at Mcdonalds with her twins piggy out

    You should have tagged this under "Wacky, tacky". MC is plain tacky and looks like a ghost.

    It's a shame because she used such a beautiful woman. She still is when she cuts out the fake tan, botox (ala earlier this year) and the blond hair. Regardless, I will most definitely tune into Idol now. Love her or hate her, she is the reason nearly every female vocalist exists right now. SHe has an amazing voice and had incredible success. And with an extra $18mill under her belt, she's laughing all the way to the bank.

    I LOVE Mariah - she is gorgeous, I don't understand why she always has to over photoshop herself!!

  21. 21

    You punched out some babies!

    Wow, Perez, nice way to call giving birth.

  22. Gonzo says – reply to this


    Looks more like a Jersey Shore promo pic.

    Haters are going to hate no matter what. Mariah looks beautiful, and she sure knows what it takes to be a platinum selling artist many times over.

  24. Denise says – reply to this


    She looks like she is about to shit herself. What is up with that face???

  25. 25

    A few days ago, I commented on how gorgeous she was looking lately; those baby curves, the glow of her obviously happy life with her kids and husband…
    (My girlfriend and I were kinda crushing on her a bit, wink wink.)
    But ICK!
    That waist looks more ridiculous than Katy Perry's Vanity Fair cover a few months ago.

    ugh. She is such a natural beauty with a shape to dream about!
    Why on earth would she let them do this to her?
    I gotta tell ya, any woman who supports this Botox bullshit and ALLOWS promo pics to be photoshopped - let's face it, she's a big enough star to say "hell to the no!" about it - ANY woman who allows these magazines to CHANGE OR ALTER their original goddess-given shape is… well,
    My crush just deflated some.

    Re: MC327
    YES, there is indeed some photoshop there, MC.
    Mariah IS a stunning woman, for sure, but if you were to google some candid pics of she and Nick and the babies, you would see that it's freakin' impossible for her waist to look like that.
    It's a damned shame.

  27. 27

    Re: Brainiac – I kinda laugh with the commentary cause her body is yucky.
    Even when I dislike her, in her favor I have to say from this pic that the waist is not really photoshoped, if you actually take a second look its the hair that is arranged around her waist to make it look smaller. Its a visual trick done taking advantage of the long hair. We all know she doesnt have any waist, she is a giant rectangle.

    she looks so awkward…

    It's always so much fun to see all the haters eat their words after Mariah has another comeback. Keep talking bitches, it will make it that much sweeter after her album comes out and she scores her 19th & 20th #1 (perhaps even 21st!). Get ready.
    Mariah, you don't need anybody to tell you how amazing you are because facts speak for themselves, can't wait to see you on AI and can't wait for your new album!!!!
