Mariah Carey Shares Her ‘Infinity’ Video, and Her Match.com Profileby Samantha Vincenty | PopCrush
Mariah Carey‘s “Infinity” video is here, and in addition to giving you a taste of her Las Vegas residency, it shows Mimi getting glam backstage and logging some time on Match.com.
The video, directed by Mariah’s “really good friend” Brett Ratner, opens with the pop diva performing with a huge smile on her face, unburdened by the bronchial issues and mixed reviews that have plagued her recent shows in real life. She also lets us in on her personal grooming routine in her dressing room, which obviously includes a generous spritzing of her personal fragrance Dreams™.
The absolute highlight of the clip is Mariah and Brett’s portrayal of internet dating, which involves lounging on the couch in a long sequined gown and swiping your way to a date with Tyson Beckford several minutes later. Empire‘s Jussie Smollett also makes an (adorable) appearance.
Incorporating online courtship is on its way to being a bona fide music video trend, with Hilary Duff incorporating her Tinder adventures into her “Sparks” video (a choice that fans weren’t entirely thrilled with, as they apparently “demanded” a redo). Mariah has gone one step further, sharing her actual Match.com profile. “MC1toInfinity” describes herself as a divorced mother of two who’s a social drinker, and her interests include cooking and religion/spiritual! Someone please click on the “meet me at Starbucks” button and let us know what happens.

Mariah said in a press release, “I hope every woman who is single and listens to this song goes out and finds her infinity, whether on Match or the traditional way.” Hopefully everyone will get the [spoiler alert] happy ending she does at the end of the video, too.
Check out the visual for “Infinity” above.
