Cosmopolitan asked the Queen of Christmas herself Mariah Carey to check out some classic Christmas decorations and choose the one she likes best – and she didn’t hold back the shade.
The Expensive Taste Test video presented Mariah with two different versions of the same item – one more expensive than the other – and asked her pick her favorite. But Mariah delivered a monologue on the pros and cons of each Christmas stocking, wreath, Santa hat, wrapping paper or ornament.
Asked to choose between a knitted Christmas stocking and one with appliqués on it, she said, “I don’t love either one of them, to be honest with you.” “I would do just a traditional Christmas stocking with people’s names on the top,” she continued, adding, “So when I put out my own brand of Christmas stockings, that’ll be the best one!”
When presented with two wreaths, she picked up the tackier-looking one and said, “This one, we’re not gonna talk about. I mean, I don’t know what to say.” – before tossing it off camera.
And Mariah picks her own Christmas wrapping paper – featuring her signature cartoon character – over a roll that’s printed with the words “Ho ho ho.”
