Mariah Carey just gave us a heap of info on James Packer and the wedding

2 min read

Boy was Mariah Carey chatty about James Packer and their wedding plans in a recent interview.

While James Packer and Mariah Carey had confirmed their engagement with a *can’t-look-away-don’t-want-to-look-away* 35-carat ring on Marian's finger, we had yet to hear the news directly from them.

Sensing we were in Packey/Jamiah (your pick) news withdrawals and felt completely out of the loop, Mariah came to the rescue. The singer spoke to E! News on Saturday giving us some insight into what went down with the proposal and the couple's future wedding plans. Here’s her ~feelings~ about the bling.

"It's so heavy I can't lift my arm up! No... It's a nice chunk."

On a side note, we'd love to tell Mariah, "hey girl, if it's too heavy for you, we will gladly take it off your hands", but we're sure that wouldn't go down well.


Next Mariah talked about how her billionaire beau proposed to her.

"It very romantic. He's an exceptional person and gets more romantic by the day, so it's very sweet."


Then the mother-of-two, who was previously married to Nick Cannon (and apparently still is, on paper), opened up about her next Big Day.

“I am very excited about the dress, but I don't want to talk about it yet, as I have to have my first fitting. But we are not doing a big wedding because he did two big weddings, and it's kind of like, 'I've done a big wedding [too]'. We would rather make it beautiful but humble."

And finally, Mariah gave us some details about James, which made us see him in a whole new light.

"He’s the guy people go to even if they are barely friends with him, and they look to him to get them through any situation. He's one of those people that just always is there for people, and I think that is a quality that I haven't seen—except in myself."
