All I Want For Christmas Is… An Explanation Behind The Mariah Carey And Michael Myers Meme

It’s that time of the year when Mariah Carey’s infamous Christmas song will dominate all radio stations and mall playlists everywhere. But before that, let’s not forget that everyone’s favorite occasion after Christmas is Halloween, and it will come first. And just in time for Halloween, let’s revisit one of the memes that made everyone laugh and see the “All I Want For Christmas Is You” singer in a different way: the Mariah Carey And Michael Myers Meme.

Mariah Carey… I Do Know Her!

Who Is She?

Mariah Carey is a living legend who needs little to no introduction. But thinking everyone knows her is too assumptive. So, for anyone who’s either living under a rock or just can’t be bothered to know about pop musicians, here is some information you need to know about Mariah Carey and the memes surrounding everyone’s favorite diva.

Mariah Carey, also known as MC or Mimi – depending on which era of music you know her from as she likes rebranding herself and her image – is a Grammy-winning American singer and songwriter who rose to superstardom in 1990. She is well-known for her five-octave vocals, melismatic singing, and her unparalleled whistle register. Mariah’s first five singles reached number one in the Billboard Hot 100, making her the first artist to accomplish such a feat.

Her well-known songs include “Hero”, “Emotions”, “Always Be My Baby”, and everyone’s love-it-or-hate-it Christmas song, “All I Want For Christmas Is You”, which started the Mariah Carey Christmas meme. Her music incorporates elements of hip-hop, RnB, and ballads and her lyricism flaunts her wide range of vocabulary. These are some of the reasons why she received multiple awards during her three decades of being an active pop star, including Artist of the Decade in the 1990s and World Music Awards’ Best Selling Female Pop Artist of the Millennium.

Of course, many people know Mariah Carey. Besides being an immensely talented artist, she is also a diva – both figuratively and literally. When it comes to being a literal diva, one of the most famous instances you can see how much of a diva he can be is when she said, “I don’t know her,” when a reporter asked if she knows Jennifer Lopez, who she has been having a feud with.

Her “I don’t know her,” response instantly became an iconic GIF and meme that many people share worldwide, which is why it’s no surprise that Mimi became the content of many other memes.
