I've never been a big Mariah Carey fan (you all know my loyalty lies with Janet) or a "LAMB" as her fans are affectionately called, but she's been playing the gay card lately for my adoration and it just might be working.
In her latest video for the remake of The Foreigner's 1985 hit "I Wanna Know What Love Is", Carey prominently features a black gay couple seen close together numerous times throughout the video. At one point the couple looks lovingly into each other's eyes leading me to believe they're more than just friends.
Isn't it sad that there's so few black gay characters on television that a couple in a Mariah Carey music video excites me? Sigh. But I digress. "I Want To Know What Love Is" is directed by celebrated hip-hop music video director Hype Williams.
You may recall Mariah sharing the stage during a Las Vegas concert last month with two Canadian gay fans, one of which proposed to his partner in front of thousands as Carey looked on and offered a toast. Between all of Carey's gay goodwill and a stellar interview with B. Scott that changed the way I viewed the diva, I just may become a LAMB in training.
