Mariah Carey Wants You to Smell a Little Like Burning

Mariah Carey is smiling almost as big as this enormous pony-keg of her fragrance, entitled simply, “M.” I have to say, she’s looking very well put-together these days. I had a friend who once told me that his brother met her once and that he’d never been a fan, but described the situation by saying, “When you meet the woman, you inexplicably want to sleep with her. She’s like walking sex.” And maybe women will be able to utilize some of the sex appeal Mariah’s tried to bottle in “M,” even though the various notes might be coming from some unlikely sources–like roasted marshmallows. But Mariah assures us that it’s subtle.

“It’s blended in there — it’s not like you’re gonna walk around smelling like marshmallows.”

Hmm, that’s a shame, cause I was kind of hoping that’s what the “M” stood for. Anywho, Mariah’s also recently sounded off on her desire to have kids, but only within the context of a solid relationship.

“If I were to have a child, I would want to be married with a stable family environment,” Carey, 37, said Tuesday on The View. “Not to say that that’s how everybody has to do it.”

Whatever! Dysfunction builds character! I’m not really advocating dysfunction, but I’m feeling ornery and want to disagree with her for no reason in particular. I wish she’d say something silly about starving African children again, so I could go off on a tangent about that and not something sensible.
