Mariah Carey Stole Meryl Streep’s Seat at the Golden Globes
The 47-year-old singer got close to her boyfriend at the InStyle and Warner Bros. Golden Globes bash Sunday after attending the awards show in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Carey and Tanaka were all smiles as they posed for photos at the fête. The singer wore a black dress as a sign of solidarity with the Time's Up equality and anti-harassment movement.
"Very proud to be a part of #TIMESUP and stand in solidarity with all the women here on the red carpet as well as those watching at home! Join us at timesupnow.com #WhyWeWearBlack," she tweeted.
Carey, who was nominated for Best Original Song for "The Star" at the Golden Globes, also told fans there was a mix-up with her seat at the ceremony. She accidentally took actress Meryl Streep's seat after returning from the restroom.
"Got caught mingling on the way to the loo during a commercial break.. took the first seat available, happens to be right next to Steven Spielberg," the star wrote. "Cut to the next commercial break, guess who comes back to her seat..."
"(me) Dear Meryl, please forgive me!!! (MERYL STREEP) You can take my seat any time!" she recounted, adding tears of laughter emojis.
Carey and Tanaka were first linked in October 2016 following the singer's split from James Packer. Tanaka gushed about Carey in a 2016 interview with E! News, saying, "I've always had a thing for Mariah. I love her so much."
