Mariah Carey Explains Why She Doesn’t Have a Driver’s License
Mariah Carey hasn’t pushed herself wherever in years. The 54-year-old singer appeared on Wednesday’s episode of The Jennifer Hudson Show, and revealed that she would not have a driver’s license.
“If there were one street that I could say, ‘OK, this is a safe street for me to drive’ I would do that,” Carey defined. “But the thing is, it’s just better for me to go with somebody in the car and not drive, but I can drive.”
Carey clarified that, whereas she will be able to drive, she would not have a sound license at current.
“I don’t have a license, because I let it expire,” she mentioned. “I did have one and then I left where I was living. I was living in the city and you don’t really want to drive in Manhattan. Well, I don’t.”
“And the when I went to go be like, ‘OK, my license.’ They were like, ‘Oh, well it’s expired and expired like seven years ago,'” Carey continued. “So then I was going to have to take the test again.”
Despite that hurdle, Carey mentioned that “now I’m going to try to get the license again.”
Not being behind the wheel would not cease Carey from touring throughout, simply as she’s doing on her Merry Christmas One and All Tour, which kicked off Nov. 15 in Highland, California.
“I’m just super excited to be with the fans and just have an experience with them on the road together,” she told ET. “It’s getting into the frosty weather soon and all that.”
The tour, which is able to wrap on Dec. 17 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, will embrace onstage appearances from Carey’s 12-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
“I’m proud of them… They just know so many things and they’re like on top of everything,” she mentioned. “They’re gonna be coming around the country with me and doing their thing, and I’m excited to watch them.”
