Remember when Mariah Carey (left) threatened legal action against porn star and former California gubernatorial candidate Mary Carey's (right) attempt to trademark her name, citing that it was "likely [for consumers] to mistakenly associate the goods offered" by Mary Carey--whose real name is Mary Cook--with the performer's "goods and services"?
Well, dumbass Mariah is now muddying the waters by posing in an upcoming issue of Playboy:
Leaked photos from the shoot made their way onto the Internet last week, showing a shapely (and undoubtedly airbrushed) Carey strutting her stuff in a skimpy flesh-colored bathing suit.
Rumors that the singer would be making an appearance in Playboy had been floating around for several weeks. On Friday, a Playboy spokesperson confirmed to E! News that Carey would indeed be featured on the cover of the magazine, which hits newsstands on Feb. 9.
Carey's spread will accompany a feature on the "Sexiest Comeback," for which she provided the answers to 20 "revealing" questions.
I suspect that Mariah secretly WANTS to be confused with the star of "Hot Showers 6" and "Lesbian Big Boob Bangeroo 2," because she obviously doesn't let her multi-octave voice sell itself.
