Up close with Mimi

CityPress - - News - BOI­TUMELO MVIMBI news@city­press.co.za

US singing star Mariah Carey shares her life in a new eight-part doc­u­men­tary se­ries Mariah’s World. An ex­clu­sive screen­ing of the first episode was held at Fine Liv­ing, an in­te­ri­ors show­room that dou­bles as an events venue, in Park­more in Sand­ton on Novem­ber 24. Or­gan­is­ers tai­lored the venue to re­flect the glitz as­so­ci­ated with Carey. Guests sipped on Cham­pagne and feasted on de­lec­ta­ble canapés as they watched sexy Mimi preen­ing and purring about ev­ery­thing from her hum­ble be­gin­nings to her up­com­ing wedding to an Aus­tralian bil­lion­aire – now can­celled – and moth­er­hood.

The se­ries fol­lows Mimi as she pre­pares for her re­cent Sweet Sweet Fan­tasy Tour and jug­gles her story with per­for­mances in sold-out are­nas.

The show has its mo­ments. In one scene, Mimi says: “I will not be seen in flu­o­res­cent light­ing with­out wear­ing sun­glasses.”

Mariah’s World de­buts next Sun­day on E!
