It’s that time of year again when “All I Want For Christmas” is played on the radio 100 times a day, and Mariah Carey — the “Queen of Christmas” — can’t get enough of her own song. She took to Instagram and Twitter to show a cute video of her kids singing along to her catchy tune.
The singer wrote, “Roc & Roe have been practicing the background vocals to ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You.’ We’re gonna take this one step at a time — we’re very excited about it! It’s our first video doing this! It’s festive, c’mon!!”

While many fans loved the video, some couldn’t help but criticize the diva because her kids didn’t have their seat belts on in the car. Yikes, Mimi. One commented, “Your kids are adorable — thanks for sharing this! But please, please, please buckle them up properly — with booster seats and seat belts,” while another echoed, “Put their damn seat belts on.” One fan got quite creative with their response: “All I want for Christmas is those children in seat belts. I said it.” Well, they do have a point, darling.
It’s no secret that Mariah loves Christmas. The 48-year-old explained to SiriusXM’s Heart & Soul channel how she goes all out for the holiday each year. “I should have a Christmas budget,” she joked to the host. “People don’t realize how much it costs to go and do the whole Christmas experience, the extravaganza that I do, darling.”
Even though Mariah is known for her ~diva~ demands, she puts her kids first, no matter what. “It used to be just about me. It used to be like, ‘I’ve got to get my sleep, I’ve got to get my rest, I have to sing, and do this and that,’” she confessed on an episode of The Steve Harvey Show. “Now, it’s really like, ‘What are they doing? Are they asleep yet? What time are they getting up?’ The activities for the next day. So, it’s been a journey for me. It’s just the beginning. I want to stay here.”
Mariah, if you love your kids that much, put a seat belt on them, please!
