Mariah Carey proudly flaunts her $500,000 necklace from boyfriend James Packer at same party Scott

On Saturday night. Mariah Carey about her current love live.
The 45-year-old singer once again wore the half-million dollar yellow diamond heart pendant gifted to her by her billionaire boyfriend James Packer.

Mariah was partying at Las Vegas venue; 1OAK at the Mirage.
Mariah doesn’t not seem to have stopped smiling since she first hooked up with the Australian businessman.

And on Thursday her grin certainly didn’t dissipate when she posted a picture of herself to Instagram wearing the 18-karat bling.
The 47-year-old gave it to her just before she took to the stage for her performance at Caesars Palace Colosseum on Wednesday night.
She was so delighted she even dedicated her hit song Hero to her beau during the gig.

‘I have a new heart tonight,’ she told the crowd as they whooped and cheered. 'James is in my heart tonight.’
On Saturday night the diva hit the Disick-hosted party at 1OAK without her man - but with his gift still holding pride of place very close to her heart.
Wearing a figure-hugging, floor-length Camille Flawless dress, Mariah had plenty of her ever-impressive cleavage on display.

And her necklace wasn’t the only interesting piece of jewelry she had on; on her ring finger she also wore a diamond butterfly ring.
And while James wasn’t there in person, he was there in giant cardboard cut-out head form.

In memory of India Clarke, the 10th trans woman murdered this year
Her murder reminds us of just how little society values the lives of black trans women.

India Clarke, a 25-year-old black trans woman who was studying cosmetology, was found dead in a park in Tampa, Florida earlier this week.  She is the tenth trans woman to be murdered this year. From Autostraddle:

This news comes the same week when another black trans woman, Ashley Diamond, is reported being raped in the same prison she’s been trying to escape due to safe housing concerns and another black trans woman, Megan Taylor was arrested for being black and trans. These stories have been a harsh reminder of just how little society values the lives of black trans women, even at a time when trans people are experiencing more coverage and supposedly, more acceptance, than ever before.

Clarke joins 17-year-old Mercedes Williamson, 20-year-old Papi Edwards, 30-year-old Lamia Beard, 24-year-old Ty Underwood, 33-year-old Yazmin Vash Payne, 36-year-old Taja de Jesus, 21-year-old Penny Proud, 47-year-old Kristina Grant Infiniti and 21-year-old London Kiki Chanel on the list of trans women murdered so far this year. Twenty-two-year-old Bri Golec might also be on the list, but there have been mixed reports from friends on whether or not they were trans. More than half of these women have been black. Last year there was a total of twelve trans women reported murdered in the US, just two more than those murdered in the first seven months of this year.

Rest in power, India. We won’t stop fighting for you.

I wanted to say; Thank you for Coraline. I'm a 47 year old transwoman parent, and I loved it, and related to it so hard. Saw the film first, read the book recently. Well done sir. (and your reading of the Jabberwocky is what I consider the definitive version.)

I’m so glad. You are welcome!

do you ever think about how leslie jones is a 47 year old black woman carving out a spot for herself in an industry that for years has catered primarily to young white men and how fuckin raw that is

I’m a slightly middle-aged trans woman from Arizona, five years transitioned, incredibly political and active in advocacy and social justice. I’m in an extremely complicated relationship with a supportive but unrepentantly straight wife who does not like women at all “that way”, and it’s on its last legs. I hope to get to know people on here, pass on any wisdom I might have, and I will never turn down anyone’s heart if they want to offer it.
