Mariah Carey, or Mimi if you like, and her toy-boy hubby Nick Cannon caused a colossal sensation last year when they quickly – and suddenly – tied the knot after just months of dating, casting doubt as to whether their union is, in fact, the real deal.
And while her nippy nuptial – that came out of nowhere – caught everyone by surprise, it was never our only suspicion...
Nah, we have a few more reservations to counter her haste.
A quick recap... in case you've forgotten
Back in the 90s, Mariah Carey was the be all and end all of pop. She's a gifted singer, no doubt, and hit after hit her name and velvety voice climbed to the top of billboard charts.
Mariah was adored. She was Michael Jackson with tits.
But, fast forward to the turn of the century and Mariah's popularity has taken a dive. No longer was she our Hero.
Publicity stunt? Let's see
A flailing career, a drop in sales, and a bruised ego... what's a girl to do next? Get hitched, do it with a man 11 years your junior, and while you're at it, make sure that it's smack-bang, in the middle of your E=Mc2 album launch.
But, before we get carried away mulling over the obvious, let's imagine it were the other way around – let's imagine that she actually married for love, like many of her friends believe.
"They have been smitten with each other for days, weeks," a pal close to the pop tart cooed soon after the news of her wedding hit headlines.
Well. It's been almost a year since their 'secret' ceremony in the Caribbean, and despite our negativity, the couple show no sign of any strain.
In fact, if we didn't know better, we'd say that they actually look happy together!
But, is it simply a 'honeymoon' phase? Will Mariah's diva-like ways eventually push Nick over the edge? And what about Nick – does he have anything to hide?
Let's take a look and see what the stars have in store...
Mariah, the aggressive Aries
As an Arian, Mariah is no pushover. A fair warning, we believe, if Nick was thinking otherwise.
Neither Christina Milian nor Kim Kardashian – or any of Nick's former flames – has the spark, spirit, or lust for life that Mariah so eagerly displays.
Arians love a challenge, and the harder it is, the better.
With numerous hits and Grammy Awards under her belt, she continues to dazzle. And if she doesn't, her competitive streak just means that she'll work even harder.
With her itsy-bitsy skirt and her low low top, Mariah hates confinement. Give her restrictions and the girl is bound to go bos.
Easy on this one Nick, or suffer the brunt of a rampant Ewe.
... This brings us to Nick, the languorous Libra
Irony is putting it mildly 'cause while Mariah is all ditsy and diva, her man Nick is all decent and decorous.
Funny man Nick is a true Romeo who's apparently found his Juliet in Ms Mimi.
With the string of celebrity hotties that he's already maimed, we're not so sure that he's marriage material.
He's Libran after all, and flirting is his absolute forte.
What Petra has to say:
You may feel awkward and unsophisticated in gracious Libra's company, but how cool to be taught the art of making love instead of making war?
