Mariah Makes More than Cameo in Zohan
So I just got back from the Toronto Premiere of You Don’t Mess With The Zohan (I am the lead promo hair stylist for the movie here in Toronto) and Mariah Carey makes more than a cameo in the movie!
Let me start off by saying the movie is hilarious and everyone must go to see it! I cannot remember the last time I heard an entire audience laugh so hard and at so many times throughout the movie!
The lead Zohan, played by Adam Sandler, is a terrorist who wants to become a hair dresser in NYC. He wears in virtually every other scene of the movie a Mariah Carey T-shirt, the promo shot from Rainbow but also the promo T-shirt from The Adventures of Mimi Tour where she is wearing the purple baby doll dress.
In about three-fourths into the movie, Mariah makes her first appearance. Everyone is at the Hacky Sack game in a large stadium and after the initial announcements on players and special guests, they announce Mariah Carey is there to sing the national anthem. She does, and sings a couple of lines, incredibly of course! She is wearing a hot pink mini dress with a ridiculous amount of cleavage (which they mock later – Mariah fully acknowledging and making fun of with). She looks magnificent, not as slender as she is right now but all in all healthy, glowing and happy! Cut to a few minutes later and I am surprised to see Mariah appear again!
This time in her dressing room being prepped by her hair stylist (real life stylist Lew Ablahani) while a fight breaks out. It cuts back to her many times until almost the final credits and every time they cut back to her she is seemingly so more and more like a diva! She pokes fun at herself as well as others in the movie. All in all, Mariah played an excellent job in doing herself or at least as most people perceive her to be.
