Mariah Carey was joking around with reporters when she was in Cannes, and she told them that her 40th birthday in March was just a “lie” being spread. She even calls forty “the F-word”. It seems Mariah wants to be thought of a perpetual thirty-something, and has vowed never to say her real age again.
The worst part – and by worst, I mean too much information – is that this report from Bang Media has Mariah’s husband/assistant Nick Cannon talking about how he gave Mariah a “bald eagle” for her 40th birthday. I don’t have a problem with “bald eagles” in general, but I don’t care to hear about them:
Mariah Carey will never turn 40.
The ‘Touch My Body’ star – who reached the landmark birthday in March – will never admit her real age and wants to remain a woman in her 30s for the rest of her life.
She said: “Read my bio again. We can’t allow these lies to spread! Don’t say the F word around me. It’s just a number but I don’t see why women should have to conform to what is expected of a 40-year-old – whatever that is.”
To celebrate her birthday – which was on March 27 – Mariah’s husband Nick Cannon whisked her away to Barbados on a private jet.
Mariah enjoyed an intimate dinner party with 11 close friends at the exclusive Wispers restaurant, which was filled with hundreds of pink and lavender balloons.
A source said: “It was important to Nick that the trip be a very relaxing one, where Mariah and her friends could truly enjoy themselves.”
At the time, Nick revealed he wanted to treat his wife to a “bald eagle” for her birthday.
But as well as being an endangered species, a “bald eagle” is also a slang term for someone with shaved pubic hair.

Alright, not to wade too deeply into the “bald eagle” discussion (I just grossed myself out), but who really thinks that Nick Cannon gave Mariah her first “bald eagle”? I realize that’s not what he’s claiming, he’s just saying this one was special, because it was his treat. But considering all of Nick and Mariah’s beach photo-ops featuring Mariah’s too-flat stomach in itty-bitty bikinis, I think the girl’s had a bald eagle for the better part of a decade.
