Mariah Carey Ignores Son While Getting Star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame
Mariah Carey received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. The songstress was deserving of the honor though her interaction with her son, Moroccan, made her look more like her diva self than that of a loving mommy.
Video of the ceremony shows Mariah draped across the red carpet next to her star while holding the framed version. Her son breaks free from the crowd and runs up and throws his arms around her. Forget bitchy resting face, Mariah doesn’t break her lights, camera, action, face. She does close her eyes though her teeth look gritted and she never breaks her pose, not even to put her arm around her son and let him be part of the photo-op. Maybe she was worried he’d mess up her do or smear her perfectly made up face?
A woman comes forward and attempts to take little Moroccan away but all he wants is his mommy. After all, to him, she is the woman who sings lullabies and not a pop icon. Poor little Moroccan clutches his mother as he is dragged away, and the former Mrs. Cannon still never breaks her pose.
Not that long ago, Mariah famously told a radio show that she fires nannies regularly to prevent her kids from getting too attached. She snapped her fingers saying:
I fire nannies like this. But I have to because if they try to make themselves more important in the babies’ minds than me….
She followed up that statement making a cutthroat motion.
That appeared to be backed up by a former nanny who sued Mariah and ex-husband Nick Cannon. One of the complaints from the nanny was that Mariah would scold her for giving the kids too much attention. The nanny accused Mariah of being jealous of the relationship she shared with twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
If the Walk of Fame video is any indication of Mariah’s mothering skills maybe those kids need a few good nannies. Someone’s got to worry less about their photo op and more about giving out some hugs and attention.
What did you think of Mariah ignoring her son’s desperate attempts to be by her side? Do you think she should have hugged him and let him be part of the photo-op? Was she more concerned with her hair and make-up than her own child who only seemed to want his mommy? Do you think she’s more deserving of the Walk of Shame?
