AceShowbiz - People have been participating in the viral #10YearChallenge which sees them posting a side-by-side comparison photo from 2009 and 2019. A lot of people use the challenge to brag about the upgrade they have been made for the past 10 years, but Mariah Carey has her own way to join the challenge.
Taking to her Instagram account on Wednesday, January 16, the "All I Want for Christmas Is You" hitmaker shared a side-by-side photo featuring the same picture. "I don't get this 10 year challenge," she captioned the photo of her donning a bikini underneath a floral bath robe. "time is not something I acknowledge. *Picture taken at some point prior to today," she added.
Instead of "glow-up" or "glow-down", the singing diva alluded that she had always been glowing since day 1. "timeless queen," a fan simply said in the comment section. Another fan gushed, "You are timeless and your music transports me to my happy place of great memories when I hear your classics. Thank you."
Mimi is not the only celebrity that undertook the challenge. Just yesterday, Madonna attempted to make a point that she looked just like she did ten years ago in a post that featured two photos of her wearing similar makeup and the same curly blonde hair. Instead of praise, she was accused of photoshopping the recent image of herself.
"Are you sure this isn't edited or retouched? Cause you definitely don't be looking like that in your videos and candids," one follower wondered. Another believed that the new picture was edited, sassing, "Photoshop out and the 'magic' is gone!!!! Stop using filter and show us the reality. Only blind fans will believe [you] do look that good and fresh."
Some others urged Madonna to embrace her 60-year-old self, with one posting a rather lengthy message asking her to "stop torturing yourself." The said user added, "You have to know how to accept growing old and a woman who has wrinkles is a beautiful woman too so accept without filter without botox and implants you would be much more beautiful and less ridiculous than want to look like your 20 year old daughter."
