Mariah Carey is currently performing her “All I Want For Christmas Is You” concerts across North America. While on tour, she took the time to treat her 8.7 million Instagram followers to a new selfie.
The “Always Be My Baby” hitmaker shared a shot of her which appeared to be taken in portrait mode as the music icon is the main focus of the image and the background has been blurred. Carey looked very natural in the photo, wearing only a light application of makeup. She wore her hair in a low ponytail that she draped over her left shoulder. She wore a light pink silk garment and opted for no earrings or necklaces to accessorize. It seemed the photo was taken at home as it looked like she was standing in a kitchen. Carey looked very fresh-faced and happy to be taking some time off.
For her caption, the “Anytime You Need a Friend” songstress added the hashtag “SundaySelfie” and explained to her followers that she was enjoying a day off after performing two “festive” shows in Las Vegas. Carey attached the Christmas tree and red heart emoji to the photo.
In the span of one day, her post racked up more than 175,000 likes and over 3,100 comments, proving to be popular with her fans.
“That skin and face is radiant,” one user wrote.
“Thank you for the amazing shows Mariah, it was so much fun,” another shared.
“Okay natural queen! Pop off! Enjoy your rest!” a third fan remarked.
“Queen of portrait selfie mode,” commented a fourth follower.
During one of her shows, Carey invited Michael from The Guinness World Records to come on stage with her to present her with a plaque that celebrated the records that her Christmas single, “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” currently holds.
The track is the highest-charting holiday (Christmas/New Year) song on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 by any solo artist, the most streamed female track on Spotify within 24 hours, and has spent the most weeks in the U.K. singles top 10 chart for a Christmas song.

Thank you so much Guinness World Records for honoring me with three records in the 2020 book! Michael from @guinnessworldrecords presented me with a certificate on stage, so naturally, I asked him to join us for the #AllIWantForChristmasIsYou finale! ???????????? ???? Denise Truscello
Carey posed with Michael on stage in her black and red corset costume. She paired the look with black heels and wore her hair down and in waves. In the second and third slides of the deck, she showed she invited her twins, Moroccan and Monroe Cannon, on stage with her. They were dressed for the holidays and were jumping around the stage.
Carey is no stranger to loving the Christmas season. She currently stars in the latest Walkers Crisps ad where the “We Belong Together” chart-topper performs her legendary “All I Want For Christmas Is You” single with choreography, surrounded by a festive set. At the end of the clip, she fights with a crew member over a bag of chips.
