Mariah Carey Won’t Wed in Las Vegas
Mariah Carey has denied reports she will get married in Las Vegas.
The 46-year-old singer is set to wed fiancé James Packer later this year. There has been much speculation about her big day, but Carey is doing her best to keep certain aspects of the ceremony a secret.
However, as she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night, Carey dismissed claims she could be walking down the aisle in Sin City, where she is currently performing a residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
Asked if she might marry in Vegas, Carey replied: “No darling. No.”
When Carey asked Kimmel if he thought she should have an Elvis impersonator officiate the wedding, he replied: “That could be fun too!”
But Carey insisted: “Um… no. I don’t think so.”
Mariah used her appearance on Kimmel’s show to poke fun at her much talked about diva reputation.
When the late night chat show host offered Carey the chance to conduct the interview from the comfort of a bubble bath, she got in to the water without hesitation – in her black sequinned gown and diamond jewels.
Kimmel also got into the tub in his suit and ensured Carey was comfortable during the interview by having someone hand-feed her grapes.
The mother-of-two has been hitting headlines with her incredible Vegas show, which fans from around the world have flocked to the city to see.
While other stars such as Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez are also currently in Vegas with residencies, Carey thinks her show has something that makes it stand out from the rest.
“No offense to any Vegas situation, but it’s not the typical (show),” she said. “What I mean by that is that the audience are devoted fans as opposed to just (people there to see a show) because they’re drunk and gambling.”
