That's A Shocker


Mariah Carey told Now Magazine that she has only ever read one book. What is the book you ask? If you guessed the Bible, then you win the I will believe anything ever written award. I have no trouble believing that Mariah Carey doesn't read. I do have a hard time wading through the crap that we are supposed to buy that the only time she has ever read a book is when she reads the Bible. Yes, I said reads. Apparently Mariah always makes time for the Bible in her life.

I'm sure churches around the globe are now panting at the thought of Mariah coming to their church to spread the Gospel according to Mimi. No doubt she will wear something suitable for the occasion.

I don't understand why she just couldn't say that she doesn't read anything and had to go ahead and make herself appear to look like this God fearing woman. Just tell the truth. I also noticed that the interviewer didn't ask a great followup question which would be something like which passage do you enjoy the most, or what book in the Bible did you especially enjoy or come back to. The reason the interviewer probably didn't ask the followup question is that he was laughing so hard he couldn't breathe and probably had to stop the interview right there.

I ignore the diva behavior because she is so talented. Same with Xtina.

Jesse D said...

Agreed, selena. Add Joss to that.

This may explain it: "...a new version of the Bible has been produced for readers with short attention spans." (Although by "reading" the best definition you could hope for would be "had it read to her by one of her lackeys.")

LOL Mooshki...excellent answer...

Sylvia said...

Would like to see the video of that interview LOL.

Mooshki--is it the Hello, Kitty illustrated version?

Actually I admire her more than if she came off trying to be a pseudo-intellectual

I still have my Bible in Pictures from my childhood, maybe that's what she "reads"....

And paleeze, give me a fu*kin' break with these people who don't do anything that normal people do, like have to shave their own damn bikini line, but oh wait, I'm religious and the Bible is my salvation.

her bible may be different than our bibles. hers may be how to be the bitchiest diva ever and shit all over everyone else bible.

Her poses alwasy make me laugh. She can sing but I'm guessing she's pretty stupid or vapid or self involved or all the above.

Sidenote - No to that tight/nylon/shoe combination.

sandman said...

she is def. batshit crazy, which will be fun to watch as she ages & has to turn it up a few notches.

Grace said...

Pretty silly stuff. I remember reading two quotes of Jennifer Aniston's: one said she loved to drink bottled water while she read a book and another quote had her admitting she never reads.

lol at "would probably wear something suitable [for church]". Makes me roll, enty.

Nature Girl said...

The "Children's Book of the Bible" has really pretty pictures and about a 24 pt font.

Maybe that's Mimi's bathroom reader.

Shelley said...

What the hell? Why is so hard for you die hard liberals to understand, that someone talented may actually, "enjoy" reading "ONLY" the bible? Judgemental hypocrits!

yeah, just like kiki dunst was really reading carl sagan, who, admittedly, is the dumb man's einstein.
and where does the bible say that one has to go through 40 clean towels per day?
