Mariah Carey’s effort

A long time ago, I read an article with Mandy Moore where she was talking about the long hours of being a teenage pop star. She would be awake for so long that she would sleep standing in rehearsals.

In that continued vein, Beyonce mentioned in her documentary Life is but a Dream that she would practice dancing in her heels til her feet were bleeding. Bleeding. Blood in shoes. That’s why Beyonce is one of the greatest of all time.

Which brings me to Mariah, on stage in front of a live audience:

I don’t know whether this is supposed to be admirable or ridiculous. On the one hand, I feel ya Mariah – who wants to dance til their feet bleed? Plus there are at least half a dozen handsome sailors to do the work for you. On the other, it’s clear that Mariah doesn’t care anymore (you say diva, I say eyeroll) so why should anyone shell out the money to go see her if she can’t even make an effort to shimmy.
