Fresh off her “Sweet Sweet Fantasy” tour overseas, Grammy Award winner Mariah Carey headed to the 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at The Waldorf Astoria in NYC over the weekend.

The Elusive Chanteuse songstress was presented with the Ally Award by her good friend/filmmaker Lee Daniels.

Taking center stage, Lee picked Mariah up before she started showering her friend with love, pointing out that he changed her life when he put her in his 2008 film Tennessee. She went on to share how nervous she was that she would mess up the LGBTQ acronym, so she decided to give it a little remix as she described all of the people gathered in the room.

“I had to learn a whole new alphabet to introduce and not un-include people,” Mariah said. “I don’t want to do it wrong. I decided that if I have to memorize it, I might as well elaborate on it. So we have L: legendary. G: gorgeous. B: beautiful — all of you beautiful people! T: tantalizing, and even Q for quality!” she said.

She continued,

“Thank you for the unconditional love, because it’s very difficult for me to have that. I haven’t experienced much of it… I wish all of you love, peace, harmony, and as my five-year old son (Roc) likes to say: boobies and butts!”

Ha! Cute.

Peep her acceptance speech and Lee's introduction speech below:
