Christmas seems to be coming earlier and earlier every year. But most people at least know to respect that it definitely comes after Halloween except for carol queen Mariah Carey.
While appearing on Good Morning Britain to promote an upcoming UK tour, the elusive chanteuse was seen lounging on a chaise in front of a fully decorated Christmas tree in her Los Angeles home.
Twitter seemed to notice the detail right away.

Clearly, given how much money “All I Want for Christmas Is You” pulls in for her every holiday season, Carey is keen for the year-end festivities to start early.
The hosts of the segment, Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, have caught quite a bit of flack for the segment, in which they asked Carey about the shooting on the Las Vegas strip that happened Sunday evening. The pre-taped segment put Carey on the spot to respond to the event, while news was still breaking.
“It’s terrible because people are just going out to listen to music and that’s what they want to do,” Carey said in response to the shooting. “Really, they’re out for the night and something shocking like this happens and nobody could have expected it. It’s just wrong. I don’t really know what to say.”
Carey later released a statement about the incident on Twitter.
Horrified to hear about the shooting in #LasVegas. My thoughts are with the victims and their families. Praying for everyone’s safety 🙏💔
