Mimi’s open letter > everyone’s open letter
I should have known.
It’s a holiday weekend. It’s THANKSGIVING. And you know what happens at holidays? Holidays are for Mimi. Because Mimi is a giver. She just can’t help herself. She cannot contain her generosity.
Be thankful for Mimi. Because Mimi just wrote us an open letter, updating us on what’s been our primary concern – f*ck the prorogue, f-ck the government shutdown, f-ck everything…MIMI WAS INJURED.
But guess what?
She’s better now.
I'm so happy to be able to catch up with everybody here on Facebook. The last three months of my life have not been easy. Getting through this injury has been the toughest experience of my life. It took me three months to get to this point but thank God I was able to recover and get my arm back. It's a huge deal, it should have taken eight months and even my doctors can't believe it. It's been a long journey, the physical therapists have been incredible and I am very grateful to all of them for helping me.
When people expected me to go "Here I am, I'm back and everything's great!", it didn't happen because my hand was still in tremendous pain and it took this long for it to heal. I've been working day and night, and it took a lot of rest (though I did sneak in to the studio a couple o' times!) but I can finally say that I am on my way to a full recovery.
There's a lot of excitement that I'm going to reveal to you very soon, and sooner than you know it, you're going to understand why but more than that, you're going to feel what I've been feeling for the past- not three months- but three years.
This is, to me, one of the most important albums I've ever made in my life. If you're a lamb, a fan, or just a human being that needs to feel good, happy, sad, miserable, joyous... "I gotcha" (said like Roc- you haven't heard how he says it yet but you will soon, it's a complete+total classic!)
Here is what I learned from Mimi’s wisdom:
Her injury ordeal – during which she was able to perform and still flaunt her “tittyballs”, as Michael K from Dlisted likes to call them – was evidently more painful than having to carry dembabies around and pushing them out.
She’s a genetic marvel. Her body is like Wolverine. It was supposed to take 8 months for Mimi to heal and she did it in 3 months. This confirms our covenant:
Mariah Carey is more special than everyone.
