Mariah Carey Is Charmingly Self-Aware in ‘Mariah’s World’ Trailer
It's true that Mariah Carey's eye-rolls and one-liners have made her one of the most GIF-able pop stars in recent memory (probably of all time). But for those of you concerned that the well of new Mariah-centered video footage might start to run dry, worry not: The trailer for her upcoming docu-series Mariah's World just dropped, and it's rife with GIF gold.
Things kick off with your standard montage -- cheering crowds, private jets, a velvet backdrop -- as the luxe life of a pop icon is on full display. This segues into a charming, humanizing moment when Mariah delivers three iterations of an introduction ("Hi, I'm Mariah Carey") with varying inflections and phrasing. She then breaks for a second and laughs at herself in what makes for an uncharacteristically self-aware moment.
It sets the tone for the forthcoming eight-part series, which Mariah said "would be a good opportunity to kind of, like, show my personality and who I am," according to Entertainment Weekly.
But the true highlight of the trailer comes just before the one-minute mark, when Mariah -- standing in a dance studio with sunglasses concealing a good quarter of her face -- says, "I'm wearing these glasses because we're in fluorescent lighting and I have a rule which states that I will not be seen in fluorescent lighting without sunglasses."
A premiere date for Mariah's World -- which will document the singer's recently wrapped Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour as well as her upcoming wedding to fiancé James Packer -- has yet to be set, but E! reports it'll air later this year. Check out the trailer above in the meantime.
