I don’t know how an insurance company came up with such an arbitrary number, since we all know the value of current-day Mariah Carey is $Priceless. But apparently they did and now some parts of her are insured for $70 million.
According to TMZ, Mimi’s Sweet Sweet Fantasy tour has been extended to South America, which means there’s a lot more money to be lost if Mimi were to, say, eat too many sour Hello Kitty gummis and damage her vocal cords, or pull a hamstring by catching her toes on the control top of her shimmer hose. So she took out a $35 million insurance policy on her voice and $35 million insurance policy on her legs.
Sources tell TMZ that Mimi’s monthly insurance premium is in the several-thousands of dollars range. But like it matters? Mariah is about to become Mrs. Australian Caveman Billionaire; the only monthly premium she has to worry about is her monthly delivery of premium pink champagne that she uses to fill her bathtub every morning.
Mariah’s body parts deserve only the largest of insurance policies, but it still seems a little odd to me that she’d chose to insure her voice and her legs. Mimi doesn’t always use her natural singing voice, and she barely uses her legs for walking. Even when she does walk on her own, she’s assisted by someone to make sure she doesn’t get the pill spins and take a tumble. So why does she need them insured for $70 million? This is all very suspicious…. I really hope this isn’t a shady insurance fraud scheme hatched by Mimi’s maybe-shady new manager, Stella Bulochnikov. I don’t want to hear about Mimi twisting both her ankles after “accidentally” falling down the stairs and being put on forced bed rest for the next 3 months. “Bed rest? Three months? Sign me up!” said an excited-for-regular-naps Mimi.
