Mariah Carey Will Always Be The Queen Of Christmas Even If She Doesn’t Want The Title

Mariah Carey is known for her extra-ness. She always overdoes it, and we are quick to overlook certain things about her than we would from other celebrities. Like when she posts a photo of herself working out in high heels and fishnets. That’s just something we come to expect from Mariah, so if, say, Jennifer Lopez hit the gym in heels she’d likely not get the same response.

Even with her well-documented diva antics, Mariah managed to surprise everyone earlier this year when she announced that she did not accept the title of “Queen of Christmas.” * gasps in gaytino *

Most people are willing to call Mariah Carey the undisputed queen of Christmas.

Seriously. Who doesn’t wait all year to start blasting “All I Want For Christmas Is You” on repeat for the entire month of December?

But Carey recently stated that she does not accept the title.

During an interview with PEOPLE, the singer was asked about being called the Queen of Christmas. This was her response:

“I don’t accept that name because I feel like it’s, I don’t know who gave it to me,” Carey said. “That’s too much. I humbly thank them and I do have an extraordinary love for the holiday season. All year long I just wait and I look forward to cooking and decorating the Christmas tree.”

However, when The Hollywood Reporter got around to asking her about the moniker, she shut it down pretty hard. When told “they” call her the Queen of Christmas, she said:

“‘They.’ I don’t know who ‘they’ are. That is not my appellation. It’s not that I’m not thrilled. I just don’t think I deserve it. I’m just a person who likes Christmas, OK? Who happened to write some songs.”

To be fair, Carey does go on to tell the interviewer for People about all the different trees she and her family keep in the house.

While Carey has the right to deny her place as the Queen of Christmas, we respectfully reject her declaration. Here’s why:

All of her fans know that the tree-buying is going to be all over social media and most can’t wait for it.

We found our #nyc tree!! ??

There are always so many questions swirling. How tall is it going to be? Will she find the perfect tree? How does she stay humble enough to go to the tree stand in person to get her own tree? So. Many. Questions.

Her song “All I Want For Christmas Is You” has been turned into an animated movie.

Seriously. In the movie, a young Mariah Carey is on a mission to fulfill her Christmas wish of owning a dog. The previews make the movie look adorable af and every grown adult needs to watch it.

But don’t ever use the phrase “young Mariah” in Carey’s presence. When The Hollywood Reporter committed this offense, she responded, “What are you trying to insinuate? As ‘little’ Mariah, I think you meant.” There is no young Mariah, because Mariah is ageless. Check yourself.

Carey even used her voice to record a new Christmas song called “The Star” for the new holiday movie.

It’s no “All I Want For Christmas Is You” but it is certainly a holiday banger.

And her kids sang back up for the pop superstar!

If your heart isn’t exploding at this then you are too cold.

She’s clearly best friends with Saint Nick.

#Christmas is here everywhere. ❤️???❄️

Like, who else besides the Queen of Christmas gets a personal visit from Saint Nick during his busy season?

You can even buy yourself some Christmas-specific Mariah Carey swag because queen.

Some of these might even make the perfect stocking stuffers for your closest and loveliest lambs.

We know you don’t accept the title of Queen of Christmas, Mariah. Yet, it would not be Christmas without your presence to brighten the holiday.
