fly like a bird . . .

tonight i had the absolute pleasure of seeing the one and only Mariah Carey. yes, i am a mariah fan and i'm not ashamed to admit it to anyone. not only does she have an amazing voice, but she has been graced with an amazing spirit - not many people can have a public breakdown and bounce back as well as she has.

my coworker, ivory, and i left the office and headed over to drinx to have dinner and a couple of martinis before the show.

sean paul's warm up was not too bad, i'm not a huge fan, but he was good at getting the crowd hype. gotta love pop music, no matter what genre, right?

now to the meat, mariah. needless to say, the show was great and i left the verizon center fulfilled, no need to complain about damn good seats and a decent playlist . . . mariah did the old and the new and even surprised us with a few guests, including DJ Clue, Da Brat, Trey Lorenz - true mariah fans will know him - and American Idol judge and producer, Randy Jackson.

now, to be absolutely honest, i was a little thrown by mariah's use of the same dress pattern (mind you, was not the most flattering) in different colors. the backless and sideless dress fit, but didn't do it for her at all. i wasn't surprised to see her sporting the boy briefs, bra and sheer robe thing, but i was expecting something a little more original. overall, i'd give the show a 9, seeing that the show started a little later than i anticipated and ended sooner than i'd hoped.

I'm mad you called Sean Paul "pop"...haha. I didn't go see Mimi cause I thought it might be annoying - but I would have way back in the day...

Glad you had fun!!!

I liked her up until about 1994/95. Then I dunno. She does have a fabulous voice. But I agree with your concern over her fashion. It's predictable, and unfortunately, doesn't flatter her as well as it did even 10 years ago. And even if it did ... there's something creepy to me about a 35 year old woman who still dresses like she's 20.
I'm glad the show rocked your socks, though. I'll bet she does make you feel it.
