Check it this powerhouse of a trio. Mariah Carey shows off her curvaceous body (which she would like you to touch, incidentally) flanked by media mogul Oprah Winfrey and singer Mary J. Blige at a press conference for Mimi’s critically-acclaimed movie, Precious: Based Upon the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire.
The threesome posed for paparazzi and I’m pretty sure that in one of the photos, you can actually see Oprah popping in to make sure she’s included. Gotta love that impetuous O! Mary and Mariah were probably giggling over the failed Michael Jackson concert tribute attempt in between photos. I can just hear it–Mariah telling MJ, “I can’t believe you got caught up in that drama. Even Janet managed to steer clear of that mess.”
As for the movie itself, the performance delivered by supporting actress, Mo’Nique, in the gritty drama is creating quite a stir. The film, which stars newcomer Gabourey “Gabby” Sidibe, has been racking up the awards along its way through the film festival circuit and has been earmarked for the upcoming Oscar season.
Meanwhile, in other Mariah Carey news, the singer plans to drop her next single, “I Want to Know What Love Is” on September 14.
