You Can Now Buy a Mariah Carey ‘Tea-Shirt’
What happens when you become a meme on New Year's Eve? You capitalize, of course. And that's exactly what Mariah Carey is doing.
Despite her disastrous NYE 2016 performance onDick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest, the diva agreed to perform again in 2017. And though she didn't stumble through her performance, she still managed to have the Internet buzzing before the clock struck midnight.
“Happy New Year! Just want to take a sip of tea if they’ll let me,” she said after singing "Vision of Love." “They told me there would be tea. Oh, it’s a disaster. Okay, well, we’ll just have to rough it. I’m going to be like everybody else, with no hot tea.”
And like that, she was the first meme of 2018. And now, lambs, Mariah Carey is selling tea-shirts. Yes, tea-shirts. The "Hero" singer promoted the latest in Mimi merch on Instagram Wednesday (January 10). There are three different shirts and a mug to choose from.
The #FoundMyTea part of the collection was inspired by the amazing photo Mariah posted after her NYE performance. Relive the moment below, and buy your tea swag here.
