Mariah Carey drops by Tampa's Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
It isn't easy to sneak one of the world's biggest music superstars in and out of your building. But when you're the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, and you're looking for an impressive way to celebrate your 10th anniversary, you make it happen.
That's how Mariah Carey and her husband, Nick Cannon, ended up dropping by the Hard Rock on Thursday night, the guests of honor at an uber-exclusive VIP reception -- only 80 invites were handed out -- in the casino's Plum VIP lounge.
Carey didn't sing, but she did cut a Hard Rock birthday cake and donate her Roberto Cavalli dress from the music video to Obsessed to the Hard Rock's memorabilia collection.
Hey, Mariah, next time you swing into town, drop us an invite? We can't live if livin' is without you.
