Mimi in the house

Would you look at that? Someone took the Bedazzler to Mariah Carey’s microphone stand.

Critics have said that the melody to Carey’s peppy elegy “Bye Bye” is too simple for a diva of her stature. After hearing it on “Idol,” I can’t get over the fact that Carey wrote a peppy elegy. People grieve in different ways, I guess.

But few of us do it with a Bedazzler-studded microphone. Oh, Mimi. We love you.
