Time is creeping up on Mariah is what I would say if I wanted to be pleasant. In reality, time has already crept up on Mariah, thrown a burlap sack over her head and dragged her kicking and screaming into middle age. At a performance at the International Carthage Festival, it’s hard to believe that she had been hot at one point. What she did may have been cute 10 years ago, but now it seems more a cry for help. A cry that will go unanswered because people instinctively turn away when they are face to face with terror. More below the cut.
