Mariah Carey & Her Boy Toy Rock The Stage At VH1’s Diva Holiday Special + Teyana Taylor Performs, Remy Ma, LaLa Anthony & More Get In The Spirit
Mariah Carey hit the stage at VH1’s Diva Holiday Special last night. And her new boy toy Bryan Tanaka was right by her side. Teyana Taylor and her red wiggery also took over the stage and several YBF celebs were in attendance for the Christmas celebration. More inside…
Several female powerhouses gathered to celebrate the Christmas holiday for VH1’s Divas Holiday: Unsilent Night event held at the Kings Theatre in NYC last night.
After serving up major PDA with her new beau Bryan Tanaka on the beach, Mariah Carey trekked it to NYC from Hawaii to get back to work. The Grammy Award winner was tapped to perform her original holiday classic, “All I Want For Christmas.” And her new boy wasn’t far behind, since he is her backup dancer after all.
The dancers lifted the Elusive Chanteuse singer, styling in a Nutcracker-inspired outfit, in the air as she belted out the lyrics to her famous track. Then, Mimi reached out and grabbed Bryan’s hand as she continued to serenade the audience.
Mariah really wants us to believe she and Bryan are a couple, or maybe she’s just trying to get all the publicity she can since her new docu-series is set to debut Sunday, December 4th at 9/8c.
Since calling it quits with her ex-fiancé James Packer, she’ll need a new storyline.
Peep a clip from her performance below:
Also hitting the stage:
G.O.O.D. Music artist Teyana Taylor was also tapped to perform. Tey whipped out the red cropped wiggery and rocked an all white ensemble to serve up a sexy performance of “Santa Baby.”
