Mariah Carey: Patriot, Feminist Role Model & LGBTQ Icon

Mariah Carey Confirms 15th LP
Mariah Carey has set up her own record label and is recording her 15th album.

Yesterday (June 12), Lena Dunham revealed that she relies on a certain pop legend to deal with misogynists. “I have had to invoke Mariah Carey a lot over the years when it comes to angry men: ‘why you so obsessed with me?'” the writer/actress tweeted in reference to 2009 smash “Obsessed.” The tweet somehow found its way to Mimi and she was quick to offer her support: “Feel free to invoke me anytime #girls!” Need further proof that the 47-year-old deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for her humanitarian efforts? How about her ongoing support of the LGBTQ community and our soldiers?

The Lamb Whisperer recently pulled a video from the archives that shows her explaining the true meaning of LGBTQ. “L” is for legendary, “G” is for gorgeous, “B” is for beautiful (or Babadook), “T” is for tantalizing and “Q” is for quality. Mariah is even releasing exclusive Pride merchandise. (I’m expecting butterfly nipple rings and other festive accoutrements). Oh, and then there’s her patriotism. “Thank you to all our brave Americans who protect our beautiful country,” the songbird captioned a picture of her posing with soldiers on Memorial Day. Scroll through Mimi’s legendary achievements below.
