Great news, lambs! Newly slim and semi-recently unbatsh*t pop star Mariah Carey will bathe Manhattan in lavender, pink and white light this weekend when the Empire State Building ignites in those hues to honor Carey’s new album, E=MC, a sure scientist fave. We couldn’t say it any better than a friend of the ‘bowl, who writes: “I love that someone like Mariah Carey has taken the work of a genius, Einstein, and corrupted it for the title of her little album, E=MC. And now we all get to bask in the dim glow of her celebrity. Thanks for nothing, Mimi.”
Specifics, should you wish to take your pink, lavender and white sign to tomorrow’s lighting ceremony, where Carey will hopefully only flip the switch (not flip out), after the jump.
