Mariah Carey’s “Hello Kitty” collection: What does it have to say about humanity?

The Onion AV Club feature known as “The Hater” (written by Amelie Gilette) featured an article a while back about Mariah Carey’s weird collecting habits. Namely, her eerie obsession with Hello Kitty stuffed toys. Here’s the picture that Amelie posted of Mariah’s bathroom:

So my fiancee and I were waiting at the grocery store checkout line and we found the Glamour magazine article about it. We had a good chuckle: not only did she have this stack of Hello Kitties in her tub, but she also had a bunch of stuffed animals on her bed. (I supposed we got some extra humor since I once gave my fiancee a “Super Cute” Hello Kitty from Hot Topic.)

Then my fiancee said, “It’s really nothing odd. We like to hide it, but women also like collecting toys as much as guys do. My grandmother has a collection of dolls, and my mom has a bunch of stuffed toys. I do, too. I don’t play with them, I just like to look at them. Some of them are nice reminders of things that don’t have to do anything with the toy.”

So you hear that, Mariah? Our Hello Kitty obsession diagnosis shows that you are, in fact, completely sane!

Also, my Transformers collection is completely validated.

  1. I read the article. It stated that many of the Hello Kitty items in the bathroom are gifts from her fans. At least Mariah does not have solid gold bathroom fixtures and a gold toilet seat.

  2. I thought it was strange at first, but it’s actually kind of neat to have an entire room dedicated to something collectible – no matter what it is?
