Thoughtful Commentary On Mariah Carey's 'Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel' Album Cover

I meant to comment on Mariah Carey's album cover art for Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel earlier this week, but the Michael Jackson news kind of sideswiped that. So let's get to it now!

First of all, given the title of this trash, you kind of expect serious Mariah on the cover. Mariah with a grey background, looking pensive, if you will. Mariah feeling contemplative over her imperfections as a sad-winged missionary for God.

No, instead it's giggle-squeal Mariah—three of them, in fact—in a skin-tight cotton dress with her ass hanging out. In fact, is that even a dress? Maybe a T-shirt, stretched down just far enough to cover Mimi's secret.

And with that third imperfect Mariah on the cover, her cans look like Scylla and Charybdis, ready to slam into any poor sailor who dares to enter The Butterfly.

See, there's nothing imperfect about this at all. This is Mariah as we like her—out of her mind and high on her own eccentricities. All that's missing is a champagne flute poking up from her cleavage.

Or maybe the spout from a box of Franzia jutting out the bottom of her dress. Chin chin!

UPDATE: Loving the similarities commenters are pointing out between the Memoirs cover and other album art—such as '80s pop ho Sabrina's "All Of Me" single and RuPaul's Christmas album Ho Ho Ho—out there.

    This is incredibly similar to the cover of RuPaul's holiday album "Ho Ho Ho." Post a comparison of the two, D'Luv!!

    ZOMG this is perfection now!! You know, at least Mimi's brand of rainbow Photoshop sparklecrazy is a hell of lot more fun than Madge's waxy death photoshootz (i.e. that new ad where she's all corpsed out).

    Ho Ho Ho indeed!!

    Move over, Holy Trinity!

    why must there be three mariahs? That dress is freaking hideous. The front bit round her coochie looks just like the labia flaps it's designed to cover up :/

    I swear, when she hits 40...will she be ok or head down the MJJ road? She's already had lots of plastic.

    If "Obsessive" is any indication, this is probably going to be a bunch of recycled leftovers from the last poorly received album. Apparently she's now using what I like to call "the voice disguiser" because it's hip. And those tits...the third picture looks like they each have a mind of their own...east-west. Next.

    Mariah's music is pretty cool, I really enjoy it. In fact my grandpa who likes to visit Viagra Online also loved her music and her body ha.
