Mariah Carey?!

Found on a link from the CasinoMemo poker blog:

Mariah Carey Wins 300,000yen In Las Vegas Casino

Pop diva Mariah Carey made a big profit to the tune of $27,000 (300,000yen) at a Las Vegas Casino.

Mariah was attending the 33rd birthday party for music producer Jermaine Dupri, at the newly opened Tao Restaurant at the Venetian hotel.

Also attending the party were Dupri girlfriend Janet Jackson, Usher, Nelly, and Paris and Nikki Hilton.

Mariah also played poker in the casino next to the restaurant.

She got lucky, and made a big win of 300,000yen on only the third round.

Mariah said, "I used to play a lot of poker with my sister. But my dress shows off a lot, so I wonder if I might have won because the guys were all distracted."

Okay, now even Mariah Carey is playing poker?

I found this a little strange, so just did a google search and found the original English version of the story at So I guess it is for real after all. Please note that my quotes of items from Japanese sites are being translated into English by my own lacking skills, so no goddamn complaints that my version of the story, translated from Japaense and then back into English, is a bit different than the original version.
