Mimi responded to the viral 10 Year Challenge that's taken over social media in the past week — and she put her own, Mariah-esque spin on it.
"I don't get this 10 year challenge," the singer wrote on Instagram alongside two of the same photos of herself in a bikini and robe, holding a dog. "Time is not something I acknowledge. 🤷♀️ *Picture taken at some point prior to today." (If you only utter "yass kween" one more time in your life, now would be an appropriate occasion.)
The idea of the 10 Year Challenge, of course, is to share now-and-then photos of yourself, starting with an early post on social media. For the most part, that seems to have translated into users finding their hottest recent photo and sharing that next to an older photo that in some way highlights personal growth or, well, hotness.
Panties and insanely perfect , half century-old abs aside, Mariah seemed to be winning the challenge as of Saturday, Jan 19, at least according to the responses her post garnered.
"'Time is not something I acknowledge' is the only sentence I care about today 👑," replied one astute fan. Another responded, "queen of recognizing that time is a social construct," while a third promised, "AGELESS QUEEN, WE WILL STAN FOREVER."
Then there's user Cassie Surprise, who offered a helpful tip on incorporating Mimi's assertion into one's daily life:
"My Credit Card Company: Uhm, hello, you haven't paid a bill in a year…? Me: Time is not something I acknowledge."
"In mariah carey language, we say 'time? i don't know her' and i think that's beautiful."
As do we.
