It’s almost that time of the year. All I Want For Christmas Is You on the radio, and Christmas shopping. If you love this song, you certainly love the singer behind it. Forty-seven-year-old Mariah Carey rose to fame in the 1990s and has won numerous awards, but one of her hardest battles was the one with weight loss. While her weight has fluctuated over the years, the New Yorker has always made the most of her figure.
Therefore, her fans were shocked when they found out she had decided to undergo a weight loss surgery. Nowadays, she seems happier than ever, almost a month after her secret gastric sleeve surgery.
Sources close to the megastar have said she is now ‘happy’. The pop star’s decision was not impulsive: Carey decided to undergo the procedure after being at the receiving end of a lot of online bullying and criticism.
