Mariah Carey Loses Weight For Her Art

The gossipists are all abuzz about Mariah Carey and her weight loss, but is this really something to be trumping up. It’s not like the woman was Aretha Franklin size, and is now suddenly svelte. Alas, it’s all for her new video, Say Somethin’.

The stylish denizens of Europe’s fashion capital would have been surprised this week to spot one of America’s hottest stars promoting her own personal take on glamour. After jetting into Paris a few days ago, Mariah Carey stopped traffic at the Champs Elysees by appearing to film her latest video Say Somethin’ in a thigh-skimming, bright pink mac.

Earlier in the day the pop diva was mobbed by fans as she left the city’s Four Seasons hotel – this time attired rather more demurely in a cream coat dress. Mariah smiled gamely as minders helped her through the enthusiastic throng of well-wishers.

Although the Grammy winner doesn’t lack confidence about her appeal, she has even more reason to be proud of her figure these days. “Everyone said I was fat so I did something about it,” she recently told reporters at a post-Oscars bash. “I’ve been working out like mad.”
