Everything in canceled. That’s what it’s felt like for the past six months as the COVID-19 pandemic has taken away concerts, movies, plays, school, camp, you name it. And with the holidays just around the corner, what’s next? Well, for a little while on Monday (Sept. 21) Mariah Carey put a scare into her 21.5 million Twitter followers by tweeting “THANKSGIVING IS CANCELLED.”
Wait, what? With Halloween already up in the air for much of the country as medical experts predict that the coronavirus could get super-charged again as flu season unfolds for a “twindemic,” Carey’s tweet sent a shiver through the Lambily. She followed up with a series of all-cap posts that didn’t make things any better.
“THERE CAN BE MIRACLES,” “CALAMITY AND DOG HAIR” and “ONE SUMMER NIGHT, WE RAN AWAY FOR A WHILE…” What was she talking about? Mariah clarified things just hours later when she explained, “C’mon, I could never cancel Thanksgiving. I just wanted to share a few chapter titles from my memoir.”
Whew! Carey has spent the past week promoting her upcoming memoir, The Meaning of Maria Carey, which is due out on Sept. 29. And now we have a few chapter titles to go with her cover of “Out Here on My Own,” the Fame song that is the subject of a chapter about her formative singing years.
