These pictures of Mimi on a float at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade should be enough. But if you do need some words, how about this:
Mimi’s collaborating with MAC. It’s a lipstick. Guess what it’s called? If you guessed “Festive”, I know you as a lamb. But it’s not “Festive”. It’s “Champagne", close enough. Here’s what it looks like:
Not my shade at all. You can see though why she’s all over it. To promote Champagne, Mimi’s been talking to PEOPLE. In the latest interview, posted yesterday, they asked her the secret to looking the way she does at 45 years old.
“I think I have to remain eternally oblivious to age. Honestly, when you put a number on it yourself, it’s just like, Why? Why do that?”
Eternally oblivious to age. Just age? Isn’t she, um, eternally oblivious to … like… everything, including reality? This is what I love about Mimi. She has always had her own reality. Even when it comes to clothing sizes. Mimi is eternally oblivious to standard sizing. Mimi is eternally a size 2. Imagine living in a world where actual size tags don’t apply to you? A world where you never have to see them? A world where someone comes along, scratches out the true size, and just labels everything the size that you want it to be?
That is eternal oblivion, also called The Life Of Mimi.
