Multicultural Mariah Carey

Pop star Mariah Carey, if you didn't know, is Irish, black, and Venezuelan. Heretofore, all she was missing was a little Asian mojo (with apologies to the Arabs).

Her latest song release is titled "I'll Be Lovin' You Long Time." You can watch/listen to it here.

By deftly omitting the "A" between "You" and "Long" she successfully channeled the stereotypical, male fetish - the Asian prostitute/concubine.

Way to fill that gap on your resume Mariah!

Watch this clip from Full Metal Jacket to see the stereotype illustrated:
