Mariah Carey Is A Glittering Goddess In Her Festive “The Star” Video
Mariah Carey dropped the video for “The Star” this morning (November 16) and it’s an exceedingly glamorous affair. For starters, the Queen of Christmas is a vision of loveliness in a sequined gown. She looks gorgeous and serene as she performs the power ballad against a night sky and then a desert background. The visual is intercut with clips from the similarly-titled animated movie, which has a biblical theme and arrives in theaters on Friday (November 17). This is Mimi’s best soundtrack contribution since “Almost Home.”
While promo for “The Star” is just getting started, there has been a little bad news for Mariah. “Just in time for the holiday gift-giving season, it seems I’ve received a present of my own; a lovely upper respiratory infection after last week’s flu,” she wrote on Instagram. “Bleak! You know there is nothing I love more than celebrating the holidays with my festive Christmas show, but I have to take my Doctor’s orders and rest until he says I can sing on stage. Until then, unfortunately, I have to cancel the first several shows of my upcoming Christmas tour.”
