Mariah Carey, upcoming judge on American Idol, has taken some time off this Christmas to have some quality time with her husband and twins in Aspen, Colorado. The pair have been staying in their lavish abode, full of beautiful festive decorations. They’re posting quite frequently on Instagram about the trip, and seem to be having a blast! But soon enough, Mariah will be heading back to get down to business!
Mariah posted a picture of her snuggling her 20-month-old daughter Monroe, who was sitting in a directors chair emblazoned with Mariah’s signature butterly. She also posted a picture of husband Nick Cannon rocking out in headphones while lamb slippers (We’re assuming they’re Mariah’s slippers, since she calls her fans lambs) by a huge Christmas tree.
They seem to be having a blast, and Mariah’s been doing some shopping while out in Aspen! She’s been spotted at Gucci, along with a few other local stores, perusing the goods. The family is making the Aspen getaway a yearly tradition due to it’s wintery wonderland!
After the Christmas season ends, however, Mariah heads back to work in order to start taping for American Idol’s 12th season. We wonder if she’s going to be giving Nicki Minaj a gift from Aspen? Mariah’s also expected to release her 14th album, which she’s very excited about. (And for good reason, since her last album didn’t do so hot!) She gushed about her newest project, saying “I’m collaborating with a lot of my favorite people but the main thing is I’m not trying to follow any particular trend, I want it to be well received. I want to stay true to myself and the music that I love and make the fans happy.” You go girl! We can’t wait to hear it!
