It’s no secret that ever since she burst onto the music scene at some unfortunate time in the 1990s, Mariah Carey has done everything she could to copy Janet Jackson’s image. She wore the tight, black spandex and the big, hoop earrings and I’m sure that she would have spent much more time in choreography if she weren’t so *ahem* deficient in that area. Now Mariah seems to be taking cues from her idol once again as she plays coy with the media whether or not she’s pregnant. It began as a silly rumor and then turned more serious when she appeared on Ellen and refused to directly answer the question or take a sip of champagne. And now, a la Janet, Mariah has cancelled all of her upcoming tour dates. From Celebitchy,
“Mariah Carey’s pregnancy rumors refuse to go away as she has reportedly scrapped plans for a forthcoming tour to prepare for her first child.
Carey has been dogged by speculation she is expecting since marrying Nick Cannon earlier this year, but she frequently refuses to confirm the reports.
And the rumors were fueled after insiders told the New York Daily News that the star had pulled all plans for an upcoming string of concerts because she is pregnant.
A source tells the publication, “Costume designers and dancers were all called Wednesday and told the tour is off.
“Most were hysterically crying because they were relying on her for a paycheck this holiday season.”
However, a representative for Carey refutes the claims: “I have not been told she’s pregnant.”
Yep at a time when the economy’s tough, not even costume designers and dancers can rely on a steady paycheck. Do I think Mariah’s pregnant? I don’t know and I don’t much care. I do hate it when stars act this way with the media, and if I ever hear of Janet or Mariah complaining about the media being too intrusive, I might just snap. Whether or not either of them are pregnant, they are being complete media whores and if there’s one thing I despise about celebrities, it’s attention seeking.
