Mariah Carey’s New “Hero”
Mariah Carey always has a lot going on in her fabulous diva life. She’s working on the musical based on her movie “Glitter” coming out. She’s constantly fighting off pregnancy rumors, and now Mimi just got finished working on a new album. I don’t know how she does it all and still keeps that banging bod! Mariah is releasing a new ballads CD, a collection of songs she’s already released — yes, another “Greatest Hits”-esque offering. I’m kind of rolling my eyes too. The CD includes her classic, “Hero,” which Mimi re-recorded and shot a whole new video for. While I usually think everything Mariah does is amazing, this particular video is dreadfully boring. It’s nothing but shots of the city skyline, her dog Jack, and her recording in the studio. Mimi, darling, I know you have enough money to create a bigger and better video. You don’t do anything half-assed, so why start now? Secondly, if you watch the original “Hero” video, shot in 1993 (after the jump) and this “Hero,” 15 years later (see above), Mariah has had so much work done. I’m not sure why — she’s always been gorgeous. Check out the original video after the jump, and the re-done version above.
