Mariah Carey Just Beat Elvis

Mariah wants you to purchase her new album E=MC2, featuring her new single, “Touch My Body,” but would prefer if you would refrain from actually attempting to touch her body. These tiny clothes are expensive! Keep your grubby hands off, fans, lest she be forced to bludgeon you with a giant vial of her perfume!

But I guess all of that work she does, squeezing into her multitude of tiny half-jackets has paid off, because “Touch My Body” has reached number one, making it Mariah’s 18th number one single in her career–the most held be any individual in the rock era. The woman just beat out Elvis, the previous holder of that record and doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of slowing down.

I’m a little nervous for her in these pictures, where she’s wearing an outfit that has way too many zippers on it, including one that appears to run the full length of her mini-skirt. I’m wondering why she didn’t just rename the single, “See My Body,” as I think that’s what she’s really hoping people will do.

OMG, I just realized she owns what almost looks like this same exact jacket in pink. I think I’m in love.
