Two peas in a pod. Who knew?

Um, in case you didn’t know—I didn’t, #SHAME—Mariah Carey and Donatella Versace are pals. Like, what? British Vogue got the designer to dish on their friendship and more important, IMHO, had her review her fave tracks from Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse. No, this isn’t a dream. This is real life. Unfortunately, D’s review leaves us with more questions than answers.
“The first time I met her was at one of my fashion shows.”
Umm, excuse me? I need to know much more. What season was this? What was Mariah wearing? What was Donatella wearing? How were they introduced and what saint brought them together???
“Straightaway, she made me laugh, and I knew immediately that we’d be friends.”
Mariah tells jokes? I mean, sure, when I saw what she wore on the subway I laughed, but I don’t think that was her intention. Maybe it was? Maybe Mariah Carey is constantly trolling us? Similarly surprising, Donatella likes jokes?
“[’You Don’t Know What To Do’] just makes me want to dance. I want to listen to it all summer.”
So, um, I cannot be the only one wondering what Donatella looks like when she dances? What’s her go-to move? Is she, like, borderline professional or is she more of a Shopping Cart and Running Man kinda girl? Also, how does she listen to music? iPod? Radio? CD player? IDK, and I need to.
“[’Supernatural’] really makes me smile. It guest stars Mariah’s beautiful twins Monroe and Morocco also known as Roc and Roe and they already have talent at three years old!”
Where are the pics of #dembabies in the studio, JW? Did they freestyle or did Mariah tell them what to sing? Is there anything #dembabies can’t do?
“I can’t stop listening to Mariah’s rendition of ’One More Try.’ George Michael is a great friend and one of my favourite artists, so I never think that anyone can do justice to his music. But I feel that Mariah really understands every word that he has written.”
So, Mariah and Donatella met at a fashion show, but where did George Michael and Donatella meet? Where do they hang out/what do they do? Karaoke? Is that where Donatella dances most freely? Also, which George Michael song is Donatella’s fave? It’s gotta be “Faith,” right?
“I love the words [to ’#Beautiful’], and I catch myself singing it during the day—it’s pure Mariah magic.”
Which words do you love, D? Do you sing the Miguel parts or the Mariah parts? Do you watch the video and wonder what kind of garage has numerous crystal chandeliers? OK, cool. Me too. Final question—I promise!—do you pronounce the pound sign? Like, do you say that song “hashtag Beautiful” or just “Beautiful”? I hope it’s the latter.
