If you’ve been on social media lately, the chances are you’ll have seen more than a few snaps of your mates looking decidedly older than the last time you saw them, usually accompanied with a caption like “need to get a few early nights in” or “work is really starting to take its toll”.
Yes, FaceApp is back, and it’s bigger than ever.
The photo-editing app (which, y’know, may or may not be stashing all of the photos that users are uploading to it) allows those who download it to see pictures themselves reimagined as much older, among other differing filters.
As its popularity has grown, an increasing number of celebrities have been getting in on the act.
However, one star who’s in no mood to see an aged version of herself, unsurprisingly, is Mariah Carey.
Responding to the trend on Twitter, she joked: “FaceApp is not something I acknowledge.”
She accompanied this with a gif from an old interview, in which she says: “I don’t hear you, I don’t see you, you don’t exist to me.”
So there you have it, Mariah Carey is timeless, and she won’t be told otherwise.

While FaceApp is clearly not Mimi’s thing, there are some social media trends she has deemed acceptable, most notably the Bottle Cap Challenge.
The Bottle Cap Challenge has seen a host of celebs attempting to roundhouse kick the top off an unscrewed bottle without knocking the whole thing over, with varying levels of success (the less said about Gemma Collins’ attempt the better).
Mariah uploaded her contribution to the trend last week, and while clearly kicking was never going to be on the agenda, it was still an iconic attempt.
