Ever since Mariah Carey released “All I Want For Christmas Is You” in 1994, she’s morphed her career to work in tandem with Michael Bublé’s in that there is nothing playing in the T.J. Maxx dressing room post-Thanksgiving but their hits and a stray song or two about a reindeer. The Queen of Christmas (if she lets you call her that) has always been suspect to be a little too gung-ho on the holidays, and her latest tweet might confirm everyone’s suspicions.
The Queen of Highlights (Ryan Seacrest) took to Twitter to ask when it was okay to take down Christmas decorations and send the tree to the wood chipper, and Mariah responded that you shouldn’t expect a tree on the curb at the Carey Castle until there were bombs bursting in air with the rocket’s red glare and plenty of hot dogs on the grill!
Dahhling! Not till July 4th! ? https://t.co/uO4YqRRxU8

While we can’t be too sure if the chanteuse is just being cheeky, we can be sure this will be a “scandalous moment” these two can talk about when she takes to the stage on New Year’s Eve to save her reputation after she revived the spirit of Ashlee Simpson and slaughtered “Emotions” with a bad lip synch track. The Sun said Mariah’s emotional hoarding of her spruce until July is “tree-diculous,” and I say the only thing tree-diculous is how that article tries to say “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is arguably her biggest hit. What a Grinch! Did they even SEE Glitter?!
I don’t get what all the fuss is about. My grandmother back in the day had a fake tree that she turned into a New Year’s Tree after Christmas and then replaced with red hearts to become a Valentine’s Day tree…and then multi-colored beads so it was a Mardi Gras tree…and then Kleenex, handcuffs, and reams of Kinko’s paper for a Tax Day Tree…and before you know it, it was a Christmas Tree all over again! In short, Mariah is only halfway there and just needs to find a way to redecorate her tree for the back half of the year.
