Mariah Carey & James Packer have taken their Yacht of Love to Formentera and Ibiza, in Spain. These photos are from Wednesday, and as you can see, Mariah did several costume changes for the paparazzi. She even wore a wetsuit again, for what looked like the quickest ocean dip ever. But my favorite photos – other than the ones of Mariah trying to balance in heels on sand – are the ones of Mariah falling down the yacht stairs as she tries to gracefully meet her lover in the smaller boat to take them to shore. This is what happens when you make Mariah walk on her own! SHE ALMOST FELL!! And she almost took down that yacht employee too! That poor bastard saw his life flash before his eyes.
Mariah is in the new issue of Us Weekly – she did their “25 Things You Don’t Know About…” feature, which is one of my favorite magazine features. Mariah’s 25 Things were all pretty amazing, but I’m just going to do some highlights. You can read the full piece here.
She was a smoker: “I smoked quite frequently from the time I was 12 to when I was 18. I gave up smoking in one day and never went back. I absolutely detest cigarette smoke now.”
Toxic lighting: “I have an extreme aversion to overhead lighting. In my opinion, elevator lighting is toxic!”
Nails: “I have totally natural nails.” [Editor’s Note: ME TOO!]
Birthdays: “I do not observe birthdays. I do, however, celebrate the anniversary of my birth [March 27] every day at 3:27 a.m., p.m., EST, PST, and ST!”
Her spare time: “I arrange flowers in my spare time. Well, when I have spare time, that is.”
She’s a cook! “I can make a mean gluten-free lasagna and an even meaner pecan pie.” Also: “I make incredible food every Christmas Eve.”
The worst pain ever: “I dislocated my shoulder two years ago, and it was the worst pain I’ve ever experienced. I had to wear a glove for a while because it affected my hand as well. Thanks to physical therapy, I’m finally glove-free!”
Time: “Time is irrelevant to me. I never wear a watch.”
Swimwear: “I swim in evening gowns and heels.”
When she throws a fit: “I hate mascara. I never wear it. Whenever a makeup artist tries to put it on me, I throw a fit.”
Serenity: “The bathtub is my place of serenity. Any tub, really — bathtub, hot tub or whatever. As long as there is water.”
She’s not good at math: “I was a mathlete. Just kidding — I even failed remedial math!”
I’m side-eyeing all of the stuff that involves Mariah actually moving of her own accord. Do you think she’s actually in the kitchen making pecan pies and Christmas cookies? I do not believe it. But I am shocked to see that I have some similarities with Mariah – I love bathtubs, water, showers. I don’t wear a watch either, but that’s because I’m not crazy about wearing anything on my wrist (except I’m actually compulsively early for everything, not late). I never wear mascara either and I’ve always had natural nails, never fake. Mariah and I are kindred souls. Thankfully, when I fall down, I tend to be a bit more graceful (JK, I’m a mess).
