Mariah Carey could probably use some good news right about now, since her new album Me. I Am Mariah. The Elusive Chanteuse is under-performing. Instead, there’s more bad news: Buzzfeed has called her out for lying about her age, social media style.
On June 13, Mariah tweeted an image of four photos together: there were three photos of her kids and one of herself. “quality time with #dembabies.. so much happiness!!” she wrote. The photo of Mariah showed her lying on her back wearing a white tank top with her legs in the air, and over at Buzzfeed, it looked strangely familiar. Sure enough, the website located an image of Mariah appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 1997, during which that same photo was displayed.
The website says it’s tweeted Mariah to ask her to comment on his apparent disregard for the truth — age-wise — but as E! points out, it’s not unusual for celebrities to tweet photos of themselves from the past without acknowledging it. In 2012, Britney Spears posted a photo of herself in a bikini that was actually from a 2008 magazine shoot.
