Mariah Carey threw a Mariah Carey-themed birthday party, because she's Mariah Carey

Think of one pop star whose birthday party you would like to attend. Beyoncé's would probably take place in an underground cave made of diamonds and every celebrity would be there. Miley Cyrus would make lots of special brownies. Britney Spears probably just throws a backyard pool party with burgers and hot dogs. But Mariah Carey, the diva of all divas, just proved she truly knows how to celebrate her big day.

She just made all of her friends — and some of her employees — attend a Mariah Carey-themed soiree in her honor. Does it get better than that?

According to Us Weekly, the party took place in Lake Como, Italy, in between stops on her European tour. Carey hosted in an Airbnb dressed as her alter ego Bianca, aka Carey in a black wig.

"About 40 to 50 people — people from her touring crew, friends — dressed up in their favorite Mariah looks; looks inspired by her songs or videos, with Mariah hair, poses and her signature style," says Us Weekly. The best part? The whole thing was captured for Carey's upcoming reality series Mariah's World, so we'll get to watch the whole thing soon on E!

This second-best part is that this has inspired two themed party ideas: making people dress up as Mariah Carey and making them dress up as any random birthday girl (me, come my next birthday.) Thank you, Mariah Carey.
