As an entertainment and fashion journalist I have become I sort of walking library to the people in my life. I am constantly asked questions about celebrities and fashion. A friend recently asked what Mariah Carey‘s real age was and I jokingly answered 18 because that’s the answer she gives when asked. She has 18 number one singles so her age is 18. Then it hit me, I don’t know Mariah Carey‘s age.
I went to Google what her age was and I was blissfully surprised to see what Wikipedia had on Mariah‘s age. For all of you who don’t know Wikipedia is the biggest online library there is. It is a user edited encyclopedia where everything, and I mean everything, can be found. Wikipedia has been sited as the source for a lot of assignments all over the world. This is the information Wikipedia gave to me.

If you missed it Wikipedia does not know when Mariah Carey was born! They seem to be certain on the day but not the year. I found this to be hilarious. Especially being a Mariah Carey fan and knowing how she acts and guards her age, I couldn’t stop laughing. Mariah is truly one of the last divas alive. How does Wikipedia not know her age and have no problem displaying possible options for its readers. This shakes my faith in Wikipedia and reinforces my love for Mariah Carey. She is going to keep you on your toes and guessing till you die. Does anybody know Mariah Carey‘s real age? Does Nick Canon even know?
