Just because Mariah Carey is worth a whopping $520 million, doesn’t mean she’s not relatable. In fact, the singer, 48, struggles to maintain her figure just like everyone else. “When Mariah cheats on her diet it’s usually two things — sweets and champagne. She loves little bites of chocolate, chocolate desserts, or good old candy,” a source told Life & Style.
We hear that, girl. Whoever came up with the whole “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” thing was seriously mistaken (and most likely a man, TBH). As far as what Mariah indulges in, specifically? Well, let’s just say we stan a humble queen. “Her kids still have a candy room in the house, so she’ll sneak in there late at night if she’s feeling naughty — plain M&M’s are a favorite,” the source revealed.
Y’all, this woman could legit buy a chocolate factory in Switzerland. Instead, she chooses to eat M&M’s. Sigh. They just don’t make divas like Mariah anymore. Speaking of diva behavior — in the best way, of course — the source noted that champagne is Mariah’s go to refresher drink because “she hates the way water tastes.” If that’s not the most iconic thing you’ve ever heard, we don’t know what is.
Let’s not get it twisted, though. Mariah may cheat on her diet, but she still looks fierce AF. In fact, on Jan. 3, she was spotted vacationing with her boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka, and her twins, Roc and Roe, looking better than ever. The pop star wore a black and pink wetsuit that accentuated her slender frame. Oh, and we can’t forget how amazing Mariah looked during her New Year’s Eve performance. She rocked a tight sequined gown that basically looked like it was designed specifically for her body.
So, what have we learned today, ladies? Diet and exercise is great… but champagne and sweets are better. If anyone gives you a hard time about that, just remind them it’s what Mariah Carey does and keep it movin.’
