Celebuzz – [Mariah] Carey sat down with E! to talk about her new reality show Mariah’s World and dished on the super-strict diet that she sticks to, which keeps her in tip-top shape. “It’s really hard. My diet, you would hate it,” the singer confessed. “All you eat is Norwegian salmon and capers every day. That’s it.”
So it’s salmon and capers for breakfast, lunch, and dinner — all day, every day.
“I’m actually serious,” she insisted before adding that while she sometimes strays from salmon, she never strays too far, “I try to stick with the proteins. It’s the worst.”
Deep at heart, I’m a Mariah guy. All the hits, it’s the season right now for “All I Want For Christmas,” her tour de force jersey dresses for MJ’s final NBA All-Star game, a lot of positive memories tied up in Mariah. But I’m just as interested in how she’s handling fighting off age as best she can at every turn. This headline also popped up in my searches this AM:
And I think what interests me is Mariah has had so much of her personal worth tied into her looks. She was the cute girl, she was the steamy kinda ethnic chick for a bit, then for like two decades she was this chick just shoving herself into skintight dresses and riding out the glory days. But now is 46 years old, age doing everything it can to strip away her personal identity as a sexy chick, and she’s trying whatever she can to keep it at bay. Salmon in capers, airbrushing Instagram pics, some HGH or rubbing aborted fetuses all over her skin, I’ve got no doubt Mariah is doing EVERYTHING humanly possible to fight it off and avoid people seeing her in public like “Ohhhh that’s Mariah? Man time has been rough on her.” Something about seeing her battle back mortality like a hitter on a 3-2 count right before our eyes…I don’t know man, it speaks to me. We know she won’t win. We know she can’t win. But I’m rooting for Mariah. Spin those platelets, eat the baby right out of some chick’s womb on a bed of capers, whatever it takes.
