Up close with Mimi
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!
