Mariah Carey’s Pride collection is here, dahlings, and the gays are gagging.
Mariah has been releasing her own Pride merchandise since 2017. Part of the profits go to GLAAD, who gave her the LGBT+ Ally Award in 2016.
This year’s drop is as sickening and gay as ever, featuring a “Shade” fan, a Mariah embroidered face mask and several t-shirts.
She announced the release on Twitter, writing: “Dahlings!!! The latest additions to my Pride collection are available to order now!!! I particularly enjoy the SHADE fan! Celebrate your fabulousity and be proud!! Love, Mimi.”
This year’s collection is heavily inspired by her 1999 album Rainbow, featuring bops such as “Heartbreaker” with Jay-Z and “Can’t Take That Away”.
Two t-shirts and a flag feature the album artwork. Another tank is a replica of the ‘Heartbreaker’ top Mariah wore on the single’s cover art.
The face mask, baseball cap and socks all simply have Mariah embroidered in rainbow lettering. There’s also a matching hoodie and biker shorts which feature a rainbow butterfly.
A fan favourite from the collection is a pink t-shirt that says “Loverboy” across the chest. The second priciest item in the collection at $50 references an iconic surprise appearance Mariah made on Total Request Live on MTV back in 2001, where she wore a similar t-shirt dress.
While the apparel is currently only available to preorder, Mariah’s store expects to start shipping in mid to late May – so you don’t have long to wait. In the meantime, she is still selling her year-round ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’, ‘MC’ and ‘Keep Calm and Carey On’ merchandise.
Mariah seems determined to cement her status as queen of the queers with this collection. Last year, she was supposed to headline Brighton Pride alongside the Pussycat Dolls. Unfortunately, the event had to be cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It has also been cancelled for 2021.
