Open Post: Hosted By Mariah Carey’s Video For “GTFO”

September 14, 2018 / Posted by:

If you’ve known Mariah Carey more for her gowns, reality show and HSN clothing line than her singing lately, you aren’t the only one, dahhhhhling. Alas, that sporadic Butterfly residency or whatever it’s called in Vegas can’t survive solely on “We Belong Together” and a video homage to Glitter (oh who are we kidding – yes, it can!), so she’s coming out with a new album this fall. The not-lead single appetizer of a song “GTFO” had me squealing, “GTFO, is that really her?!earlier this week at the promo art. Mimi finally released the music video today…yep, it’s her.

The song may be a half-snooze/half-Ariana Grande warble, but Mariah makes up for the hiccups by dressing like she’s advertising a girlfriend experience to would-be johns in Don Draper’s mid-century modern lair. The hair is teased, the boobs are perky, and it’s a chiffon-and-feather moment, dahling. It’s basically just Mimi traipsing and rolling around solo in her house and singing into a glass of wine. If I wanted that, I’d just shut my eyes and think about what I did last night!

I guess my biggest gripe is the house. Do I believe that Mariah traipses around her own home looking like she spent her afternoon bopping between the MAC counter, Frederick’s of Hollywood, and a free Veuve Clicquot tasting at the neighborhood liquor store? Yes.  Do I believe said home is this low-budget Graceland with a tiled tub? Hell, naw! That being said…do I think this song will be salvaged by any given gay DJ with a little dubstep and mashing up with the new Ariana album just to be a catty ho? OH, hell yes. See y’all at the clurb!
