TOURING DIVAS: Mariah Carey Kicks Off "Sweet Sweet Fantasy" European Tour & Announces New E! Docu-Series + Rihanna Brings Out Drake In Miami
Mariah Carey and Rihanna are burning up the stage on their respective tours. MiMi kicked off her European tour in the UK last night. Meanwhile, RiRi surprised her Miami fans with a Drake appearance. Peep the pics and videos inside….
O heeeeey Mariah!
Your fave eternal butterfly kicked off her “Sweet Sweet Fantasy” European tour at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow last night – one of her first performances in the UK in over 13 years. And she’s serving all types of sexy fantasies for her European fans.
Hitting the stage 30 minutes after her scheduled time, the 45-year-old engaged mom-of-two made a grand entrance flaunting her curves in a sexy crystal-encrusted Yousef Al-Jasmi bodysuit before belting out her classic catalog of hits.
Ok MiMi! Get it!
She ran through her chart-topping hits, including like “Hero”, “Emotions”, “Always Be My Baby”, “One Sweet Day” and “Heartbreaker,” to name a few, for her 95-minute set.
Being the pop diva that she is, she was carried around by her male dancers as she continued to serenade the audience with her vocals before being lowered on a velvet bed.
The Grammy Award winner will be hitting the stage in several cities overseas, wrapping up the tour on May 2nd in South Africa. Mariah will get a short break and then she will be back on stage to complete her 2nd Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace on June 7th.
Peep a few clips of MiMi rocking the stage below:
In TV news, the Precious actress is gearing up to star on a new eight-part documentary series titled, “Mariah’s World” coming to the E! Network. The series will follow her as she tours Europe and South Africa on her “Sweet Sweet Fantasy” tour. Not only that, cameras will be rolling to catch MiMi plan her wedding to her billionaire fiancé James Packer, which is supposedly set to take place this spring.
You better stack coins Mimi! Yessss!
But you better not call her show a reality show. “I refuse to call it a reality show,” Mariah told the NY Times during a phone interview. “I thought it would be a good opportunity to kind of, like, show my personality and who I am, even though I feel like my real fans have an idea of who I am. A lot of people have misperceptions about this and that.”
Of course, Mariah will have the power to decide what will be shown on the show and two people we WON’T be seeing much of her 4-year-old twins Roc and Roe. She said, “I don’t want to do anything exploitative. There might be a couple of moments, but it’s not about making them the stars of the show.”
Fans can expect Mariah’s new docu-series to premiere later this year, possibly by late summer.
At another concert last night...
Rihanna hit the stage for her third sold out show at the American Airlines Arena in Miami last night and she came with special surprise.
Her homie Drake hit the stage for a surprise performance of their joint track “Work” sending the NAVY in a total frenzy. The chemistry between the two was thick and fans loved every minute of it.
Rih hit her best moves on her former fling, followed by a lot of hugging, touching and sexy stares.
We're sure the extraness was for the show, but fans were eating it that ish up.
RiRi, rocking thigh-high boots and custom Armani, then got back to work on her own to finish her set:
After rocking the stage with the Pop princess, the Young Money rapper sat in the audience to watch the rest of the show.
Below are a few clips from the show:
