Justin Bieber has been teasing fans over who his last secret special guest artist would be for his Christmas Album. He's already revealed that the album will feature collaborations with Busta Rhymes, Boyz II Men, Usher and The Band Perry, but he finally just announced that the super secret special guest artist is (drumroll please) Mariah Carey!
Ok, we're you let down too? I mean, Mariah Carey is such the obvious choice. Doesn't Mariah Carey kind of have a monopoly on pop artists doing Christmas albums? I was singing Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas" before I ever even heard "Jingle Bells."
Justin released a slew of cryptic tweets to get fans excited about the Mariah Carey announcement. "Oh yeah," he tweets, "didnt I promise everyone I would tell them who my last special guest is on my Christmas album #UnderTheMistletoe ???#nov1st"
Omigod tell us please - chanted the chorus of Bieber's 13,120,031 loyal twitter followers.
"I mean we know we got my big bro @UsherRaymondIV and@thebandperry and @BusaBusss and @BoyzIIMen on the album but who is the last guest???"
"who is the living legend that I got on the album???? #UnderTheMistletoe #Nov1st"
Sorry, he KEEPS teasing,
"I mean the fact that I might be singing with one of the greatest voices ever one of the greatest songs of christmas ever...... #NOV1st"
"hmmmm....u really wanna know huh....maybe it is time i tell you. #UnderTheMistletoe #Nov1st"
Justin then tweeted a link to a video of Mariah Carey herself, with the words "well like I said...#UnderTheMistletoe is not your normal christmas album. right @mariahcarey . #NOV1st"
Then he linked to a video of Mariah acting unnecessarily divalicious when she announced, "Justin and I are doing this duet together, it is my song, "All I Want For Christmas," which I wrote and produced."
Justin kept this a secret until today, he didn't even tell Tricky Stewart, the album's producer.
"I don't know who's featured on the records. The records, as I know the records - Justin is the artist on the records. I know that he's planning on doing things, but I have no idea what they are," Tricky told MTV.
Can we just take a moment and think about the fact that Justin Bieber's manager's name is Scooter and his producer's name is Tricky. You realize how ridiculous that is, right?
