I’m surprised it took as long as it did but the universe has finally given us the Las Vegas Pop Diva encounter we’ve all been dreaming about. No, not the one where Celine Dion and Cher have a Fear and Loathing fueled all-nighter that starts at the carousel bar at Circus Circus and ends with them doing a duet of Enough is Enough (No More Tears) while standing on top of a rundown school bus blazing through the desert at 60 miles an hour with a wake of dust, sequins and glitter trailing behind them. Sadly no, it’s the one where Britney Spears and Mariah Carey run into each other at a dinner party and chatted for a while over an extremely un-photogenic meal!
Paper magazine is out with four Las Vegas-themed covers. One with Ricky Martin, one with the Backstreet Boys, and two featuring two wildly different Divas: Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez. One dances, sings and shimmies at an exhausting pace, the other is Mariah Carey. Mariah is always at her most Mariah when she’s having her picture made or when giving an interview, and here we get both!
