1. She's been making jams since 1990.
2. She's still smokin' hot after all these years.
3. She's married to fucking Nick Cannon who is 11 years younger. That means a couple things...
a. That Drumline son-of-a-bitch is married to a woman who he likely fantasized about as a kid. SEE ALSO: Greg Brechbiel
b. Nick Cannon was in pre-school when the above photo was taken.
c. Fuck Nick Cannon
4. Someday, Vision of Love, Dreamlover, Fantasy, Always be my Baby, Honey, One Sweet Day....need I say more?? That's almost two decades of hits.
Music Box showed a more grown up Mariah, still innocent....Daydream came later and Mariah did something as an R&B singer that started a trend that still remains to this day.
"Fantasy" featured Ol' Dirty Bastard (R.I.P), and Mariah was THE R&B singer that popularized using a rapper for a cameo verse in an R&B track. A million singles with R&B singer/Rap collaborations followed.
.....but something was holding her back.
Clothes!....When Honey came out in 1997, we saw different Mariah emerge.
Sexy, confident, and skimpy. No complaints here!....but after this her troubles seemed to begin.
Now I won't bother you with these, frankly because we all know about them.
So Happy 39 Mariah....I didn't mind your husband so much before you were married, but I really don't like him now. Especially after that one time I saw him at a cafe on Melrose...he had a XXXL sweatshirt on, XXXL basketball shorts, and wrestling/driving shoes. It was like Big Puns hand me downs minus those goddamn shoes.
