(That is a direct quote from me to my room mate, about two minutes ago).
I have a not-so-secret love for all things Mariah Carey. And so I cannot tell you how excited I was when I happened to be at the gym, watching tv and running on the treadmill, when her new video premiered on MTV. And it is SO Mariah.
Ridiculous bikini shots. All headshots only show one side of her face. Great pains taken to position herself just so. It’s like Honey all over again, only with less Puff Daddy and more Pharell. Because she’s hip.
I’ll be honest, though, it’s no Always Be My Baby, which is inarguably the greatest Mariah video of all time, and definitely one of her all-time best songs. The tire swing. Camp Mariah. The adorable little kids who kiss underwater. They just don’t make videos like that anymore.
