    I have never cared for Mariah Carey ever since she stopped wearing bra. She always looks like a porn star. You have an excellent voice, all that extra is not necessary and put your freaking bra on. That.

    Doug E fresh doesn’t age. Mariah carey looks like a vegas stripper who is trying to stay young. She’s too talented for this trash.
