Whoever Photoshopped Mariah Carey's New Christmas Album Cover Deserves A Raise

When all else fails miserably, pop stars always have the inevitable Christmas album to fall back on. And this year, Mariah Carey will cash in on that safety net with her shameless Merry Christmas II You, the sequel to her 1994 hit album Merry Christmas.

Of course, the odds of the follow-up producing anything as rad as this classy jam are pretty slim:



Mimi's official site says the album will contain the usual Xmas covers ("Little Drummer Boy," "O Come All Ye Faithful"), a new version of "All I Want For Christmas Is You" (ghetto!) and four new songs, including a single called "Oh Santa."

I'm just wondering who the body double they hired for the cover image is.

    If that is the real album cover, I honestly don't know what to say. That is a hot hot mess; I refuse to believe the label (or even the crackhead down the street) would okay that. Really bad.

    Has she seen it? Did she approve that pic? Has she lost her freakin' mind? She might of looked that way a decade ago but, there's no way in hell she looks that way now.

    Justin & Jerome, alas, that is the real cover. It's from her official site! And you ask if she's lost her mind? That's been apparent for years. Which is why I heart that broad.

    The only modern-day Christmas song to come close to All I Want Photoshopped For Christmas would be Not Tonight Santa by Girls Aloud, and every year I am gutted they don't release it.

    I love Christmas albums so will get it regardless - coming from the man who did Gina G's Fresh! I am really disappointed in the cover. Nothing beats her photoshopped arm pit on the Glitter cover though - it actually looks painful.

    HAHAHAH I love the album cover. It's very festive... and the whole look really reminds me of this true digital age masterpiece, also of Mariah:

    hurrah! I don't care how shit the cover is (and it is shit), it's a new Mariah christmas album! I'm hoping for more of an ally mcbeal christmas episode cheeky slutty vibe, than a pimp ho down and dirty vibe, but we'll see!
