Officially, Mariah Carey was in Tampa to promote the 10th anniversary of the Seminole Hard Rock casino on Thursday, but the superstar singer, who was traveling with husband Nick Cannon, also happened to be celebrating a birthday.
Carey, who turned 44 on Thursday, appeared at the casino’s posh Plum VIP Lounge, where a group of 80 invited guests watched her cut into an elaborate Hard Rock cake (anniversary, not birthday).
While there, Carey donated the distinctive Roberto Cavalli dress she wore in the video for her 2009 hit “Obsessed” to the Hard Rock’s memorabilia collection.
Cannon apparently didn’t forget to pick up a birthday gift worthy of the best selling female artist of all time.
“Nick surprised me for 3/27 with a stellar diamond bracelet encrusted with 3 floating butterflies!,” Carey posted on Twitter early this morning along with a photo of the large, blingy bracelet on her wrist.
“I think she’s happy...” Cannon wrote on Instagram in reply.
