What’s going on with Mariah Carey’s mystifying invisible chair?

In our politically-charged world, I am sometimes called upon to take on the hard hitting news stories that weave the fabric of our lives in these turbulent times. And for you, loyal readers, I am willing to take on this challenge.

So, on Thursday night, Mariah Carey performed at the AHF World AIDS Day concert at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium. During her performance, which included her songs “It’s Like That,” “Don’t Forget About Us,” “We Belong Together” and “Hero” (naturally), Mariah, to the delight of her fans, signed some autographs. In a video posted of the impromptu autograph session, it initially appears that Mariah is sitting on a chair…but, once she stands back up, there’s no chair there! Witness this sorcery for yourself.

I’m not sure if Mariah has amazing quads or her Georgine gown is giving her that hover power, but her ability to hold that position is pretty admirable. If I got into that stance, I’d need help to get back up. Of course, after the video surfaced, Twitter went wild.

Mariah saw the the tweets, and simply replied, “LOL”. WHAT IS SHE HIDING?

But, hey, it’s good to see Mimi back in action, and I give her all of the props for participating in World AIDS Day remembrances. The 47-year-old singer was sidelined by a respiratory infection and was forced to postpone her “All I Want for Christmas: tour. She may have lost a few pounds as a result of that (or her recent rumored gastric bypass surgery), but she’s looking a bit more svelte. On Thursday, she showed off her slimmed-down figure in a LBD, tweeting, “Feeling better and back at work! Looking forward to seeing you today at the World AIDS Day 2017 concert and then starting the Christmas tour festivities!”

Mariah got her tour back on track on Saturday, with three dates at New York’s Beacon Theater. The shows were a success, with Mariah sharing her appreciation for the Big Apple on Twitter.

Even though Mariah may or may not want to be referred to as the “Queen of Christmas,” her most famous holiday tune is allowing the singer to live the life she’s become accustomed to. A study conducted by The Economist, which looked at the steaming numbers for Christmas tunes on Spotify found that the 13 most popular pop songs celebrating the holiday were streamed 1 billion times. (The study looked at the music streamed in the two months leading up to Christmas 2016, across 35 countries and every U.S. state.) Of these songs, the most popular, Mariah’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” (of course), was responsible for 210 million of those streams. And, since its release in 1994, it has generated over $60 million in royalties. That sure beats coal in your stocking – and it’s probably enough to buy a bunch of invisible chairs.

    Does anyone EVER use the world ‘svelte’ in real life?

    I don’t think I have ever heard it spoken?

    Also all the lols to the story – much more fun than more Donnie orangeface coverage which just makes me sad.

    I think her dress was tight enough (which dress of her isn’t) to create a semi support. That doesn’t seem too hard to do. Either that or during Christmas time MC has super strength. Maybe she is drugged through the year to sustain herself during Christmas!

    Just kidding. Her song is one of the few I can stand during Xmas period.

  3. V4Real says:

    Her body is looking amazing again.

  4. Felicia says:

    Can I just say… industrial strength shapewear?

  5. Lolo86lf says:

    She looks so beautiful after losing 15 pounds. Her quad muscles are superb.

  6. Katie says:

    It’s really easy to hold that position in heels, and you can see her thighs shake as she stands up.

  7. Shelllley says:

    Props, Lady!
    That’s some serious control.

  8. AnnaKist says:

    I really need to go to an optometrist, pronto. I thought the title said “Mariah’s Invisibile Hair”, and kept reading to find out what the problem is…

  9. Millenial says:

    I still love Mariah and all her quirky diva-ness. I know she’s gotten a bit strange in recent years but whatevs, Mariah forever!

  10. Veronica says:

    Okay, I’ll give her credit for that – it is INCREDIBLY difficult to hold that position for more than a few seconds, much less in heels. A lot of balance and lower body strength is required. So like…kudos on those gym workouts, Mariah.

  11. reverie says:

    What? Has the world not bent down while wearing 3+ inches of heels before? I do this shiz all the time!

  12. Beckysuz says:

    Haha every time Mariah is “sick” she comes back looking skinny. I think “sick “is code for “Mariah goes away to have work done”. She is so very extra. I do love her though, she really commits to all that extra

  13. Abby says:

    That video is amazing. I could not do that. Not thanks to rock hard Spanx or a rigid dress. Not in heels for sure. I am flabbergasted! And she looks great.

  14. Suezyqh says:

    Mariah demonstrated this amazing feat the last time she was on “Watch What Happens Live”. I was hoping that she would fall – she didn’t.
