Yes, it’s that time of year again. The annual Mariah Carey Christmas cash in campaign.
Mariah is being sued by both siblings for her memoir, published a year ago, called “The Meaning of Mariah Carey.”
According to reports she’s tossed her mom into a senior citizen home in Florida and sold her house.
So it’s time to get warm and fuzzy as Mariah launches the 27th year of her single, “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” the Phil Spector soundalike co-written by the very forgotten Walter Afanasieff.
Every year, an assault on iTunes begins to get “All I Want” back to the top of the charts. And now streaming, as well. Come, all ye faithful, to the PR onslaught Mariah kicked off last night as Halloween ends and MariahMass begins.
And all this is fairly necessary since, though Mariah is rich rich rich, her annual income is lot lower without the ability to perform in Vegas. And she sells no records during the year, just dribs and drabs of old singles here and there. But not enough to maintain homes and lifestyles.
No, “All I Want for Christmas” is a product, like other holiday baubles, and this is the season of giving. To Mariah.
Merry Xmas! Now we have two months of this cynicism to look forward to!
