Mariah Carey, who turned 40 in March, insists she will no longer admit her real age and wants to remain in her 30s for the rest of her life
Mariah Carey will never turn 40.
The 'Touch My Body' star - who reached the landmark birthday in March - will never admit her real age and wants to remain a woman in her 30s for the rest of her life.
She said: "Read my bio again. We can't allow these lies to spread! Don't say the F word around me. It's just a number but I don't see why women should have to conform to what is expected of a 40-year-old - whatever that is."
To celebrate her birthday - which was on March 27 - Mariah's husband Nick Cannon whisked her away to Barbados on a private jet.
Mariah enjoyed an intimate dinner party with 11 close friends at the exclusive Wispers restaurant, which was filled with hundreds of pink and lavender balloons.
A source said: "It was important to Nick that the trip be a very relaxing one, where Mariah and her friends could truly enjoy themselves."
At the time, Nick revealed he wanted to treat his wife to a "bald eagle" for her birthday.
But as well as being an endangered species, a "bald eagle" is also a slang term for someone with shaved pubic hair.
