Stopfalling from the Friends Of Mariah Messageboard reports that the media circus of Mariah Carey’s arrival in Beirut has hit Lebanese TV. Several TV stations have been airing parts of Mariah’s press conference, which was held at the Movenpick Resort. One journalist asked Mariah why she decided to come to Beirut during winter instead of the summer when its more fun… Mariah said she has been on a world tour since June and now she was able to come to Beirut. She said she has wanted to come to Beirut for a very long time and now she got the chance. Another journalist then asked her if she was seeing anyone… Mariah said she came to Beirut this morning with her boyfriend. When they asked who is he… She smiled and said said she wants to keep it for herself. The media then invited her out to dinner, but she declined and said she hasn’t slept yet and was on a 12-hour flight from Malaysia and she prefered to rest and sleep in tonight and tomorrow after the show she would party. She asked them for advice on where to go… and they all told her there are great clubs in down town Beirut. Then the reporter said that thousands of fans will be at the Mariah’s show unpatiently waiting to hear Mariah’s voice.
