To show that I am not beholden to corporate interests, and because I already got the perfume in the mail, I feel safe in telling you this. Mariah Carey can be a bit of bitch at times. I know, I know. Who would ever think that Mariah Carey had it in her to be bitchy? At the launch of her new perfume M, which I have now mentioned more than any other product and for which I didn't get to do anyone up the butt, and certainly didn't get any coke, Mariah met all her fans.
Well, not all her fans. She met as you know the fans who were first in line and who gave her $300 in cash, in small bills and in return, the fan got a photo and an autograph and a telemarketing call later from some woman named MiMi that night asking for more money.
Well when you pay $300 you kind of expect a little something extra if you know what I mean. In Tokyo, all the fans who paid $2500 to meet with Michael Jackson got to have their hair pulled by Michael and also a courtesy grope if you were a young boy.
Well back in New York, fans who were getting their photo taken with Mariah wanted to actually be in the photo. Instead there was some kind of one foot rule. If you came within the one foot line, you were shown the door. No photo for you. One guy actually had the nerve to try and touch Mariah. Well after he was shown the floor by security and Mariah disinfected from her brush with human contact, the offender was shown the door.
The good news was that since her fans couldn't get that close to Mariah they didn't have to smell the perfume known as eau de Mariah.
