Mariah Carey posted another voice message to fans on Thursday (December 22), after learning ‘Don’t Forget About Us’ is her 17th song to reach the #1 position on the Billboard Hot 100. “This is the best ever, ever, ever, ever, ever gift,” Carey said. “I am so happy! (Wooo!) I am just so excited I had to call you and say, no for real I can’t even express it and we’re just being totally celebratory … Jasmine’s here (Jasmine: I’m here in front of a roaring fire in the festive Christmas tree.), Rachel is over here (Rachel: Hi, lambs!), and Jack is here, he’s a little excited, but I don’t want him to ruin the message. I’ve been trying to leave a message three times and everytime we tried to blow the little festive horn, the new year’s thing, he freaked out and like started attacking us (laugh) but anyway, I just wanted to say that you are the best in the world, you know that and you’ve made this year if not the best year of my life one of the most incredible years ever and I just, all I can say is I love you, appreciate you and enjoy you and I wish I could get Jack to bark without him attacking us but he loves you too and seriously this is such an amazing day for me. Thank you guys for making it possible and it’s just an incredible blessing and I just thank God for you and I thank God for this day and for everything and everybody, Happy Holidays! I’m gonna call you back and leave you some more festive messages but it was a really fun happy 17th party tonight so, you guys were with us in spirit and, I love you (we took pictures too and we’re gonna show you). Yes, you’re gonna see the pictures soon so anyway, happy 17th and I love you much! Buh-bye!” Additionally, photos of Carey with her 17 cake and t-shirt are available.
