Mariah Carey arrived at Las Vegas at Caesars Palace wearing a see-through dress celebrating her upcoming Vegas residency. Photos and video have gone viral, and you can see the diva’s grand entrance right here!
Talk about making a notable arrival. Not only did she wear a flesh-toned, sequined garment, but she arrived in a pink Cadillac. It made for quite a photogenic moment, and the pictures and the video have social media buzzing.
Her arrival coincided with the release of the new single, “Infinity” which is the new song from her album “##1 to Infinity” which is being released to similarly coincide with the start of her residency in Vegas, entitled officially, “Mariah #1 to Infinity.” Yes, that’s a lot of coinciding and collectively it’s creating quite a storm of publicity.
The song alone would have done it. Widely perceived as a diss track against estranged husband Nick Cannon, who filed for divorce from her late last year, ‘Infinity’ is a song that bears no sorrow over the end of the relationship, let’s say. No, not with lines like, “‘Why you mad / Talkin’ ’bout you’re mad / Could it be that you just lost the best you’ve ever had.”
Married since 2008, the couple had always been effusive with grand displays of love and devotion such as shutting down Disney World to renewing their wedding vows. But those days are long over. Yes, with such biting lines as “Boy you actin’ so corny like Fritos / Wouldn’t have none of that without me, though” those days are long, long over. And, as an aside, it probably not the product placement the corn chip company would have hoped for.
Amidst the fanfare, Mariah Carey herself brought plenty of fanfare to Vegas as you will see below. The gown is a stunner and leaves little to the imagination as it hugs every inch of her famous curves, and is bejeweled in just those areas where some extra concealment is due.
And along with a Las Vegas residency of a major music artist, indeed a legendary one with 18 No. 1 hit singles, hence the album title, there’s the speculation over how much is she being paid. While it’s a number under wraps that doesn’t keep the guessing game out of view and large multimillion dollar figures are tossed about. Regardless of the size of her paycheck, she joins the legion of music icons who have graced Las Vegas with residencies including the likes of Elton John and Celine Dion.
