Mariah Carey has a new best friend and it isn’t exactly someone she can have a girls night out with.

During a press conference on Tuesday, Carey, who is set to kick off her MARIAH #1 TO INFINITY Las Vegas residency on May 6, revealed that her new bestie is a dolphin.  Yes, a dolphin.

“I made my new best friend in the world. His name is Osbourne. He is a dolphin. He is fabulous,” she said.

By the way, Carey’s mere honest remark was while discussing showing her kids around Las Vegas and having the opportunity to swim with dolphins.

In hindsight, maybe a dolphin would be a great best friend because they’d be great listeners. Dolphins have an acute sense of hearing and according to SeaWorld, a dolphins “auditory nerve is about twice the diameter of the human eighth nerve.”

During the conference, Carey also got a tad feisty with a reporter who asked if there will be any backup tracks during her residency. “And there was some speculation here in Vegas that’s just required because there’s so much going on onstage,” the reporter said.

Carey responded, “I mean, I have so many overlapping parts and background vocalists and background things. There’s always some confusion and something about it, but I mean like, if there’s any confusion they’re welcome to come to my house and sing in the shower with me. It’s not a problem.”

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract

Published

Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
