You know what, there's a few things that I think, like, uh, poor Sister Mariah...you gotta help poor Sister Mariah...you know, first she like, feels compelled to wear almost nothing, in order to raise her record sales, and now those guys are telling her she's gotta redo her image, put on more clothes.
