Mariah Carey opened up her doors for the holidays. The pop diva invited “TODAY’s” Tamron Hall to her New York penthouse for some Christmas cheer. Dressed in a negligee and robe, Mimi gave a tour of the luxurious Tribeca triplex that she shares with Nick Cannon and their twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
She conducted the interview in the festive Pink Room, which was decked out with two Christmas trees decorated with live pink peonies.
“Nobody’s ever really in here,” said Mimi. “It’s really for things [like] archived photographs … personal items in here that are special to me. The kids don’t even know this room exists yet.”
“Miss Christmas” (as her husband calls her) shared her holiday plans, which do not include skiing, and showed off photos from Dem Babies’ first Christmas and a childhood photo of her with Santa Claus.
She also spoke about her Christmas classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” which she wrote on a Casio keyboard nearly 20 years ago.
“There was an idea from the label; the record label [said], ‘Do a Christmas album,'” said Mariah. “I wanted to make the most festive song that would always make people happy.”
You can see a whole lot more of Mariah this holiday season as she takes over NBCUniversal as part of “12 Days of Christmas.” She is set to make appearances on “Access Hollywood,” “Extra,” Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” and Al Sharpton’s “PoliticsNation” on MSNBC.
