Social media’s “I’m attention-starved and need gratification!” moment du jour is the 10-year challenge. It’s why your news feed is clogged with split-screen photos of people you went to high school with bragging about how great their moisturizer routine is by showing a self-photo from 2009 and one from 2019. Only, the 2009 one looks like Kendall Jenner’s Proactiv ad, and the 2019 one looks like Yoda. Someone whose 10-year challenge is not here for any wrinkling is Mariah Carey, dahhhling. She posted her own, uh, attempt at it, and it seems like we’re going to have to go find old episodes of TRL on YouTube if we want to see 2009 Mariah.
Mariah isn’t here for aging, hasn’t been here for aging, and never will be here for aging. Just ask Charlamagne Tha God, who asked Mariah about Ariana being the “young Mariah.” It’s a miracle Mimi didn’t pull off her weave and hang him with it right in his studio!
Mariah’s 10-year challenge reveals she doesn’t have much faith in her fleet of Photoshoppers:
I don't get this 10 year challenge, time is not something I acknowledge. 🤷♀️ *Picture taken at some point prior to today pic.twitter.com/f5XUye3Hot

While looking like a model for the Frederick’s of Hollywood Petco Collection! And if that dog isn’t screaming HELP ME with his eyes, I don’t know what it looks like for a dog to scream HELP ME with his eyes.
Mimi says the pic was taken “at some point prior to today,” which means it was definitely a line item on Bryan Tanaka’s list of chores this week before he’d get his allowance.
