You knew it was coming.
Mariah Carey nabbed herself a new eight-part documentary series, Ã¢â¬ÅMariahÃ¢â¬â¢s World,Ã¢â¬Â which will follow her as she goes on a tour in Europe and South Africa and plans her wedding to billionaire fiancÃÂ© James Packer, and it’s going to be AMAZING.
Just don’t call it a reality show, even though that’s exactly what it is, Mariah will CUT YOU.
Ã¢â¬ÂI refuse to call it a reality show,Ã¢â¬Â she said in a telephone interview. The series, she said, is all about getting to know her better and not, as she put it, Ã¢â¬ÅHere I am, getting my nails done.Ã¢â¬Â
Ã¢â¬ÅI thought it would be a good opportunity to kind of, like, show my personality and who I am, even though I feel like my real fans have an idea of who I am,Ã¢â¬Â she explained. Ã¢â¬ÅA lot of people have misperceptions about this and that.Ã¢â¬Â
The show, which began filming two weeks ago, is expected to debut later this year, possibly by late summer.
And there are things you won’t see, like her kids.
Ã¢â¬ÅI donÃ¢â¬â¢t want to do anything thatÃ¢â¬â¢s exploitative,Ã¢â¬Â she said. Ã¢â¬ÅThey havenÃ¢â¬â¢t been filmed at all yet. There might be a couple of moments, but itÃ¢â¬â¢s not about making them the stars of the show. TheyÃ¢â¬â¢re too young to make that decision.Ã¢â¬Â
Similarly, Ms. Carey said that her fiancÃÂ©, the Australian James Packer, does not want to be filmed. Ã¢â¬ÅHeÃ¢â¬â¢s a legit businessman,Ã¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬â¢ she said. Ã¢â¬ÅItÃ¢â¬â¢s not really his thing to be, like, traipsing all over Europe and hanging out with all my crew and dancers and singers.Ã¢â¬Â

The show is being produced by Bunim/Murray Productions, the same group behind Ã¢â¬ÅKeeping Up With the Kardashians,Ã¢â¬Â Ã¢â¬ÅI Am CaitÃ¢â¬Â and Ã¢â¬ÅThe Real World,” obviously. So it’s probably going to play up allll that DIVA. Unfortunately, Mariah has final say on all the footage, so it’s not going to be EPIC. But it’ll probably be good.
Will you watch?
