Paging Shonda Rhimes: Superstar Mariah Carey is a Gladiator.
While appearing at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Wednesday to promote her new series Mariah’s World, Carey revealed that she’s a big fan of ABC’s Scandal.
“I love Scandal,” the singer told a roomful of rapt reporters when asked which shows she likes to binge while traveling. “I really do love Scandal. Actually, I watch it on Netflix over and over… I’m a fan of the show.”
Following the panel — during which Carey drank champagne while the half-naked men who welcomed her onto the stage were tasked with microphone duty — Carey held court quite literally from a purple chaise lounge on stage. EW asked what her favorite Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) moment has been:
“There’s so many,” she said. “I wasn’t totally in love with the kidnapping thing. But I love when her and Mellie [Bellamy Young] become friends and they’re sitting there drinking the moonshine on the floor. That was a good moment.”
Carey will have to wait to see what happens next as Scandal is slated to return midseason on ABC.
