50-year-old Mariah Carey feels ‘eternally 12’

Singer Mariah Carey celebrated her 50th birthday last week.

Mariah Carey feels “eternally 12”.

The Hero hitmaker turned 50 on Friday, but she didn’t place any special significance on the milestone birthday because she doesn’t feel as though she’s grown up.

“Spent 3.27 at home with my family and virtually with fans and friends from all over the world.”

Mariah shared a series of photos from her special day on Instagram over the weekend and wrote: “Spent 3.27 at home with my family and virtually with fans and friends from all over the world. Thank you for all the love #eternally12 (sic)”

Two birthday cakes

The pictures featured Mariah and her eight-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe – who she has with ex-husband Nick Cannon – and showed her two birthday cakes.

One had candles in the shape of ’12’ while another had ‘Happy Anniversary Mariah’ written across it.

On her actual birthday, Mariah revealed she had been working on new music.

She shared a bare-faced selfie while recording in her studio at home and posted on Instagram: “Starting 327 with a new song #stayhome.(sic)”

The former ‘American Idol’ judge also paid tribute to musicians who share a March birthday.

Alongside a gallery of photos of some of the artistes, she wrote: “Happy anniversaries to all my super talented fellow Aries!! [heart emojis] Cheers!!! [champagne emojis] @chakaikhan @arethasings @dianaross @eltonjohn @celinedion @fergie @ladygaga (sic)”
