Iconic New York Landmark Bows To Whims Of Color-Coordinated Diva

New Yorkers know the feeling of walking down the street while not thinking about Mariah Carey. Most might consider it a comforting experience, maybe even the way one ought to walk around the city. But this weekend, the Mariah Carey publicity machine is making sure that every time you look up and in the general direction of midtown, your thoughts will turn immediately toward the diva; the Empire State Building will be “lit in pink, lavender and white all weekend to celebrate the album color motif of Mariah’s new album E=MC2.”

All who wish to attend this atrocious publicity stunt should be at the Empire State Building lobby tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. for the lighting ceremony, which is bound to be one of the most cringe-worthy things to occur in New York City since the great Taco Bell rat infestation of ’07.
