Mariah Carey turns 50, gets trolled for looking 'eternally 12' after botox and surgeries
Mariah Carey has just turned 50 and the singer-songwriter rang in the big day, not with a grand celebration because of the coronavirus pandemic, but with her twins Moroccan and Monroe.
The Grammy Award-winning star celebrated with a small cake at home where she is in isolation. "Spent 3.27 at home with my family and virtually with fans and friends from all over the world. Thank you for all the love #eternally12," she captioned the image on Instagram.
Carey is known to not celebrate birthdays as she only celebrates anniversaries. "I don't count years but I definitely rebuke them... I have anniversaries, not birthdays, because I celebrate life, darling," she had said in 2014, adding that she is "eternally 12".
But even as the pop star celebrates her 50th birthday, some on Twitter were brutal as they shared their views on Carey's turning older and her eternal youth, which leaves many envious.
"Wow! So much Botox, when smile the ears move," tweeted one. "She's starting to look like an old drunk white woman with too much botox," commented another ruthlessly.
"Obvious chin implant. Hip implants. Bolt-on tits. And this is an OLD pic. Mariah peaked some time ago, now it's just a matter of watching her plastic surgery fail," tweeted another.
In June last year, reports were doing the rounds that Carey used her ex-assistant Lianna Shakhnazaryan's AMEX credit card to pay for surgical treatments such as buttocks enhancement, firming treatments and other cosmetic surgeries.
While Carey has denied getting any of the treatments, invoices are proof and show at least six cosmetic procedures (including fat freezing and firming treatments).
This got many wondering how she would have looked naturally. "I feel like Mariah Carey could have aged nicely without plastic surgery on her face. I wonder how she would look now without it."
The constant comparisons between Carey and fellow pop star Jennifer Lopez were also addressed by several fans, adding that the latter chose to age naturally and work on herself throughout.
"When will people admit that between 2017 and 2018 Mariah had gotten weight loss surgery because she refuses to age. Yet, she shades Jennifer Lopez who actually works out for her age. And JLo is 50 years old," tweeted one.
"OMG Mariah Carey just turned 50 and she looks so pretty. yeah that's the benefit of having a bunch of money, not having to work a real job for decades, and plastic surgery," tweeted a user.
"Starting to see that plastic surgery come through her makeup. Thicker coats are needed," commented another.
