Mariah Carey’s seminal 1994 hit “All I Want for Christmas Is You” catapulted the pop singer into a staple of the season.
But even as synonymous as Carey has become with Christmas, an ornament maker seemed to have utterly failed in its attempt at creating an apt likeness of her.
“My husband and I exchange ornaments every year and this year he got me (Mariah Carey) which is very festive,” Kyle Blaine, an editor at CNN, wrote on social media.
The image of the Picasso-like faced ornament kneeling with her hands clasped above the song title piqued a response from the diva.
“This is... Not approved,” Carey wrote, adding a neutral face emoji. “But it’s the thought that counts.”
Her song has been a consistent holiday favorite since its release, and last year it became the first Christmas song in 60 years to reach No. 1 on Billboard’s all-genre Hot 100 songs list, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Carey previously directed the 2005 Hallmark Christmas movie, “A Christmas Melody,” and she released a Christmas special earlier this year.
“I really do live from Christmas to Christmas,” she told the Wall Street Journal. “I love every holiday. Not every holiday — I’m not living for Groundhog Day — but I’m just saying I’m a very festive person.”
