Anitta Posts Her Mariah Carey Collection, Mimi Responds
Who knew Anitta was a diehard Lamb? The Brazilian superstar took stanning to the next level over the weekend when she wrote a gushing post about Mariah Carey after being followed by her on Instagram. “For the ones who don’t know, my 2 aunts and my mom were obsessed about her,” the “Banana” hitmaker revealed. “So when I was born I was the best student ever for them and became an even better fan.” In fact, the 26-year-old loved Mimi so much that she decided to follow in her footsteps. “That’s why I started to say I wanted to be a singer so early in life.”
Anitta then recounted how her uncle would buy the family a new Mariah CD every Christmas and they would all listen to it obsessively. Still not convinced about her level of dedication? Well, how about Mimi-themed birthday parties? “My birthday is 2 days after hers and sometimes we use to celebrate her birthday with mine,” Brazil’s hottest export remembered, before explaining that she does not have an ulterior motive for the post. “I’m not trying a feat, not trying a meet, I’m not trying an answer here… I’m just sharing how crazy is life. I grew up with her in my heart every day as my inspiration from very, very far away and now she knows who the fuck I am.”
She certainly does. Mariah was obviously touched by the post and left a cute message for the now-famous Lamb. “Anitta, I don’t even know what to say!” the 18-time chart-topper commented. “Thank you for your appreciation of my music. I’m so proud of you for making your dreams come true!!! Hope to meet you soon, maybe even in Brazil — one of my favorite places in the world! Love to you and your family!!” See Anitta’s collection (and adorable post) below.

That's my family waking me up today telling me @mariahcarey followed me. For the ones who don't know, my 2 aunts and my mom were obsessed about her. So when I was born I was the best student ever for them and became an even better fan. That's why I started to say I wanted to be a singer so early in life. My uncle use to present us every Christmas with a new MC cd and we always use to celebrate going craaaaaazy. (Cuz in that time we didn't have money to buy ourselves). So this one and only cd of hers of the year used to spend one week in each of us' houses. And I use to go to their houses with the cd to keep listening lol. (When I got money I bought 2 of each cd for us so we could listen as much as we wanted.) When she came to Brazil, we didn't have money to go see. I remember me listening to her concert on the radio crying cuz I wasn't there. My birthday is 2 days after hers and sometimes we use to celebrate her birthday with mine lol. When I could finally have enough money to travel all the family to see her show, everytime I tried some shit happened and we couldn't make it (sorry for some empty front seats u must have seeing sometimes. It was ours and we were as pissed as u probably were seeing that was empty.) I don't give a fuck that it's just a Instagram follow stuff. I'm not trying a feat, not trying a meet, I’m not trying an answer here… actually I'm not trying shit. I'm just sharing how crazy is life. I grew up with her in my heart every day as my inspiration from very very far away and now she knows who the fuck I am. That's crazy as fuck.
