Mariah May Have to Fess Up on October 20th


Mariah Carey‘s cat and mouse game–is she pregnant or just really enjoying lasagna?–may soon be over.

Invites have gone out for an October 20th listening session in New York for Carey’s new holiday album, “Merry Christmas II You.”

Island Def Jam chief L.A. Reid is hosting the event, and Carey will be there to meet and greet friends, family, and radio types.

Unless she’s hidden, or a hologram, or sits behind a large pocket book all night, there are undoubtedly going to be questions. And maybe an answer. Recent pictures indicate that our lovely Mariah looks very little like the photo on the invite itself right now.

Remember: Mariah told us through her rep a few weeks ago that she was very “superstitious” about discussing such matters.

Meantime, Mariah’s first single from the new album, “Oh Santa,” is pretty catchy. Expect to hear it four times a day between Thanksgiving and Christmas!
