Mariah Carey is about to get a break from her residency, and she celebrated in the best way possible — by taking off her pants (unless she just forgot them). We shouldn't be surprised her evening ended there. It started by pulling Blac Chyna onstage during her #1 to Infinity residency show for a lap dance from one of her backup dancers. Then, Carey went from Caesars Palace straight to a DJ gig at 1 OAK nightclub in Las Vegas. What do you think surprised partygoers more — seeing Carey in the DJ booth, or seeing her wearing fishnet thigh-highs?

Carey looks as glamorous and diva-licious as ever in the bodysuit/lingerie combo, topped off with a leather jacket and strappy Christian Louboutin stilettos.

She had help in the DJ booth from DJ Suss One, Us Weekly points out, but there's no doubt the crowd bought tickets to see Mimi in action.


The outfit choice may seem surprising, but fans of Carey shouldn't be surprised. Asked about a racy Instagram photo by PrideSource, Carey laughed off the idea that she even owns casual clothes. "It was real! That's what I walk around in!," she said. "I barely own any clothes! All I have is friggin' lingerie." That sounds about right. The good news is that Carey has residency dates through the rest of the year, so we can hold out hope that she'll go pants-free yet again. Or at the very least, break out the fishnets and the turntable.
