They're often seen in an array of stylish designer clothes. But safety comes first, of course, and today Mariah Carey was seen helping her cute twins into their fluorescent life vests as they took a boat ride in Capri, Italy.
While the bright yellow jackets may have covered Monroe and Moroccan's fantastic outfits, the 13-month-old brother and sister still looked impossibly cute.
Monroe was clad in a pretty pink dress while Moroccan was dressed in a pair of jeans and check shirt.
Mariah, 42, who is married to America's Got Talent host Nick Cannon, flew out from the States last week.
Her first stop was Morocco - the place which inspired her son's name - where she performed at the 11th edition of the Mawazine International Music Festival. From there she has now moved on to Capri, in the scenic Campania region of Italy.
Mariah, who was pictured with her twins yesterday, put style before comfort as she embarked on a boat ride, wearing a minidress and platform heels.
Carey, whose net worth was estimated at more than $500 million last year, spares no expense when it comes to spoiling her ultra-cute babies, affectionately called 'Dem Babies' by their parents.

Below is a scan from the Italian newspaper Corriere del Mezzogiorno, which featured an article in its May 28 edition about the Capri Palace Hotel, where Mariah is currently vacationing between her concerts in Morocco and Monaco:
CAPRI PALACE PASSION
Somebody says it's a sort of luxury castle, some others say it's a place where to sublime the pleasure of life. To witness this, some of the world's most famous visitors that have attended the place more than once. Yes, because the Capri Palace is a place, a situation, that will not be forgotten. Mariah Carey has repeatedly been a guest of the great five star luxury hotel, she has just arrived in the week-end.

Mariah announces that she wants to do "a little bit of a party song." "It's Like That" starts playing!
Mariah announces "I'm having a little bit of trouble with my ears!" and asks for a microphone stand. Talks about starting the trend of a glittery mic-stand. She must see a sign in the audience asking for a song. She starts singing an improv: "I'm not singing that song right now! Sometimes I just write a song in the middle of my set for you, Morocco! It's a beautiful place. And you see the people having such smiling faces, and they are full of love. Hearts full of love. And I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you for letting us come here and sing this next song! Thank you Morocco! This is for you." "Shake It Off" now.

Mariah is having trouble with her ear monitors. Someone is on stage to help her with it ("an ear doctor moment"). She says hi to her twins, who are watching from the hotel room. Time for a song she likes to call "TMB."
Mariah announces she'll do a song from the Rainbow album that she wrote to lift her own spirits. "Can't Take That Away"!

Mariah is off stage again as the band jams. Trey Lorenz is introducing the band.
Mariah returns to the stage in a long, red sparkly dress to sing "Love Hangover/Heartbreaker." Introduces the song by saying "This is for all the heartbreakers out there tonight." Mariah dedicates the song to Donna Summer "because we love her" during the "Love to love you" section.
Mariah asks for a chaise lounge. Thanks the Royal Family for having her there, while she waits. Says hi to all the cute kids out there who are up late. Introduces a song from the Butterfly album: "My All."
After briefly leaving stage during the remix part of "My All," Mariah is back in the same red dress. "Dreamlover" now. The "Juicy" remix from "The Adventures of Mimi" Tour!

Posted by Jonny on Wednesday, 23-May-2012, 5:27PM EDT
File this under news we totally saw coming.
As if hosting "America's Got Talent," producing Nickelodeon flick "Rags," teaming up with Ashton Kutcher to punk Demi Lovato, and signing artists under his Ncredible music label weren't enough, Nick Cannon is currently working on an animated project with Mariah Carey!
The proud papa of "dem babies" talked to me briefly at Beyond the Bell's 5th Annual Spotlight On Success Leadership Event about the highly anticipated collaboration.
"We got a couple of things in the works but the first one we're doing is very Christmas-oriented," Nick dished. "My wife is Ms. Christmas and quite festive so it's going to be real big, you'll see it in the future."

"Surprises" On The Way

Mariah To Perform at Obama Fundraiser?
Posted by Jonny on Friday, 18-May-2012, 11:15PM EDT
It's not Sex and the City - it's Barack in the City, which can be had for as little as $3.
President Obama's campaign announced Friday that "Sex and the City" star Sarah Jessica Parker will host a re-election fundraiser at her Manhattan home next month.
Parker promised that the evening, entitled "A New York Night," would be "fabulous."
"I hope you'll help me welcome President Obama and the First Lady to New York," Parker wrote in an email to the incumbent's supporters. "It should be fabulous."
Supporters who donate even $3 will be entered in a raffle to attend the glitzy June 14 event.
The Obama campaign used a similar tactic earlier this month by raffling off chances to attend a star-studded fundraiser at George Clooney's Hollywood home.
That dinner raised $15 million - the most ever in a single event.
Parker, a longtime Obama supporter, volunteered at a get-out-the-vote phone bank for the campaign in 2008.
"I believed then, as I do now, that if we all chipped in and did our part, we would not only make history," Parker wrote, "but create meaningful change that so many Americans needed."
"For me, this election is even more important than 2008," she wrote.
Details of the fundraiser, which is expected to be held at the West Village home Parker shares with husband Matthew Broderick, are still being settled.
The raffle winners will be flown to New York and receive tickets to a Mariah Carey performance - though it is not clear if the star will sing at Parker's home.
This will be far from the first time Obama will raise money in Manhattan, the political world's favorite ATM.
He held a pair of cash bashes last week in the wake of his historic decision on same-sex marriage.
Earlier this year, he also attended a series of $35,000 dinners in posh apartments - including Spike Lee's upper East Side home - and a fundraiser at the Apollo Theater that featured his famed rendition of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together."
His Republican rival has also frequently visited the city with his hand out, though he will likely receive few votes from the five boroughs.
Mitt Romney has swept through the city several times to raise money, including a three-stop blitz one December day that netted him several million dollars.

Mariah Carey: "I Was Joking About Britney Spears"
Posted by Jonny on Wednesday, 16-May-2012, 3:58PM EDT
Mariah Carey has laughed off rumours she's angry at Simon Cowell for choosing Britney Spears over her as a judge on The X Factor after she appeared to take a swipe at the Toxic hitmaker during a recent interview.
The Hero hitmaker reached out to music and TV mogul Cowell when he first announced plans to launch a U.S. version of the hit British talent search early last year (11) and expressed her interest in getting involved.
Carey, who was expecting twins at the time, was forced to drop out of plans to become a judge on the programme due to her pregnancy and singer Nicole Scherzinger was reportedly chosen to take her place alongside Cowell, Paula Abdul and Antonio 'L.A.' Reid for season one.
The R&B superstar was briefly linked to the job again when Abdul and Scherzinger were dropped from the line-up at the end of the first series, but Cowell finally settled on hiring Britney Spears and Demi Lovato for the vacant roles and officially announced their involvement on Monday (14May12).
Carey didn't appear to be a fan of his decision to appoint Spears as a judge when she was asked about the hire during an interview for U.S. news show Extra, and said, "You think I focus on that stuff? Have we met? I love (Spears), honestly. I think she's a very nice person, but I don't care who's going on that show - as long as it's not me."
Her comments sparked speculation she was upset at being overlooked by Cowell, but Carey insists she was just joking.
Taking to Twitter.com on Wednesday (16May12), she wrote, "@BritneySpears & @SimonCowell of course I luv+care about you dahhlings, congrats (sic)! U never know what's true or gossip, I was joking around!"
"Glamily Lambily" Fan Makeover Extravaganza
Posted by Jonny on Wednesday, 16-May-2012, 12:11PM EDT
Long before Lady Gaga ever dubbed her people "Little Monsters," Mariah Carey had "Lambs," or the "Lambily" as she affectionately refers to her fiercely loyal fans. Mariah is so appreciative of the Lambily that she designated February 11th "Lamb Appreciation Day."
T0 celebrate, Mariah chose three lucky Lambs --Tonya, Desiree and Meg -- to win a "Glamily Lambily" Mariah Carey makeover from her personal glam squad featuring beauty legends Kyle White, Oscar Blandi and Kristofer Buckle. Each of the girls also took home a beauty basket from Mariah worth $1,000 and she has one left just for xoJane. More on that later. First, the makeover.
WHO: Mariah Carey's glam squad. Kyle White on color, Oscar Blandi on cut, Kristofer Buckle on makeup, and xoJane.
WHERE: Oscar Blandi's expansive Manhattan salon. Coincidentally, Tinsley Mortimer of xoJane's first Makeunder was there the same day having her hair done.
WHY: Mariah and Jane go way back. Right Jane? [It's not like we are thisclose or anything. I had dinner with her and a couple of other girls, including Ashley Judd (of course), many years ago at Nobu and it was during that dinner that I realized she is a real girls' girl (one of my favorite traits) and very real and open. Then she was on Jane magazine's cover, so I went by that photo shoot to say hi to her. Mostly our connection is through Kyle, who rules and loves bringing people together. ] And it's through Kyle that Jane was asked to take part in the makeover. As Kyle said to me over the phone recently once the project was complete, "You have to have a Jane Pratt to make this sort of thing happen."
Kyle on color: "It’s not like a tattoo or plastic surgery. Anyone can have fun with hair color. It’s one of the few things that you can do in an afternoon that can reinvent your whole look. When criminals are on the run they change their hair color immediately. It’s a part of our identity. Hair color can be career making. Debra messing never got work until she went red. Hair color can be a signature. It’s something that you can completely reinvent. Mariah is always, always changing. We did a photoshoot where her hair was black. Hair color is a mood enhancer it’s something that makes people feel better. It inspires creativity."
Kristofer on makeup: Everyone looks in the mirror and wishes they could change something. Sometimes you want to be someon else just for one night. Sometimes there's such a small adjustment that it's not worth fixing permanently. Most people are limited by their own obsession. Women don't realize how great they can look. They don't know their true potential. Once somebody sees themselves like this it changes their self-perception. The competition isn't so steep between you and the superstars."
Mariah is giving away one last Glam Lamb beauty basket worth $1,000. To enter simply visit the gift basket gallery and tell us what makes you an honorary lamb in the comments. I will announce the winner right here on Monday, May 28th, so don't forget to check back.
Mariah & Nick Bid $21,000 On Shoes At Charity Event
Posted by Jonny on Wednesday, 16-May-2012, 9:22AM EDT
Days after celebrating their twins' birthdays – in Paris, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon arrived hand-in-hand at the Opera Gallery in N.Y.C. for an arty fundraiser.
The pair was spotted laughing and enjoying themselves, sipping soft drinks and checking out tunes by DJ Mos at the event, which benefitted the Urban Arts Partnership. The happy couple – who recently renewed their vows – was apparently in a very charitable mood: Cannon placed the night's highest bid, nabbing a $21,000 Project Canvas shoe, that was paired with a diver watch, designed by Audemars Piguet.
Carey was among the celebrities who designed shoes for the event. Her creation, which was snatched up by BET chairman Debra Lee for $2,000, earned the highest price for a single pair of shoes during the evening.
Other celebrities contributing shoe designs at the event: Ellen DeGeneres and Swizz Beatz.

Mariah: "I Don't Care" About Spears' X-Factor Role
Posted by Jonny on Tuesday, 15-May-2012, 10:06AM EDT
Whilst the majority of us were excited to hear that Britney Spears had been confirmed as a judge on the X Factor USA, there was one person who couldn't give two hoots.
Asked about what she thought about Britney's new role on the show alongside Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid, during an interview with Extra, Mariah, who was linked to the role shortly after Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul announced their departure from the show, replied:
"You think I focus on that stuff? Have we met? I love her, honestly, I think she's a very nice person, but I don't care who's going on that show - as long as it's not me."
The star was then quizzed on the reports that she was going to go back on tour. However the star, who has recently renewed her wedding vows to husband Nick Cannon, got a tad confused thinking that the interviewer had asked her about Britney's tour.
"Her tour or my tour?" She asked. "Darling, I got to finish my album. I'm going to play a few shows."
Mariah on Nick's "Bromance" With Howard Stern
Posted by Jonny on Monday, 14-May-2012, 5:35PM EDT
"Extra's" AJ Calloway chatted with Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon at the Project Canvas gala in NYC, talking about "America's Got Talent" premiere Monday - and Nick's fondness for new judge Howard Stern.
"He sent us gifts. I was like me and Howard are having a bromance right now," said Cannon. Carey jokingly interjected, "I don't know if I approve of that. I don't really like that terminology; it's not my favorite."
Mariah joked she'd like a house in the Hamptons, while Cannon works on "AGT" in NYC. Carey smiled, “"America's Got Talent" is going to get us a house in the Hamptons, so we can be out there all summer long... with a fabulous pool and I want it on the ocean!"
As for the rumors Mariah may be going on tour soon, the singer said, "Darling, I’ve got to finish my album! I’m doing a few shows!"
Tune in to the "America’s Got Talent" premiere tonight at 8:00 PM on NBC!
Mariah Celebrates Mothers Day at Great Adventure
Posted by Jonny on Monday, 14-May-2012, 3:25PM EDT
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon had what she later tweeted was a "Mother’s Day extravaganza" Sunday at Jackson’s Six Flags Great Adventure.
The only thing missing? Their year-old twins. They were "not present," according a Six Flags press alert, although Carey did pose for a picture with a park guest and her twins. On the other hand, Cannon’s mother went along for the ride, so there was a modicum of motherly bonding.
Cannon, who surprised his bride after their 2008 nuptials with a blow-out party at California's Six Flags Magic Mountain, and Carey celebrated the first birthday of twins Moroccan and Monroe on April 30 with an extravagant party in Paris.
Inside Dem Babies' Lavish First Birthday Celebration
Posted by Jonny on Monday, 14-May-2012, 3:20PM EDT
Naturally, Dem Babies' first birthday celebration was a black-tie affair. In Paris.
This week, proud parents Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon posted party photos to Moroccan and Monroe's personal website, Dembabies.com, from the twins' lavish April 30 first birthday celebration.
Dressed to the nines for their big bash, the tots -dubbed Roc and Roe for short -were treated to a toy Ferrari, a rocking horse, and a miniature white piano. (Mama Mariah dressed in a floor-length, blush-colored gown and donned a dazzling diamond necklace for the special occasion).
April 30 was an extra special day for the Cannon-Carey family; it also happened to be the Grammy winner and America's Got Talent host's fourth wedding anniversary.
Three days before feting Roc and Roe's birthday, Carey and Cannon, 31, renewed their wedding vows--a tradition they've kept up every year since their 2008 nuptials.
"I have to do it every single year," Cannon explained to Us Weekly of why he and his wife choose to reaffirm their commitment to one another. "If you were married to Mariah Carey, you'd want to marry her every year too! I just have to keep doing it to make sure it's real."
No Mariah Carey for amfAR
Posted by Jonny on Sunday, 13-May-2012, 3:57PM EDT
Mariah Carey will not be performing at the annual amfAR Cannes benefit at the end of this month. The group wanted her, but Carey is finishing up her new record, taking care of twins, and helping husband Nick Cannon recuperate from his unexpected illness this winter. Plus, she and Nick and the kids were just in France celebrating their anniversary and the babies' birthdays, so she’s not going back. No word yet on who amfAR will round up for the event. The entertainment end of things has been getting thinner and thinner, as acts need a lot of prep time, and it costs a fortune to import whole bands and computer systems to reproduce an act's sound. Many of the kinds of stars the amfAR audience likes don't actually perform live anyway. The amfAR tent is a lot smaller than an arena, and lipsynching would be noticeable.
Mariah Carey is Pumped About Trainer Launch
Posted by Jonny on Saturday, 12-May-2012, 7:15PM EDT
Mariah Carey looks magic in a tight purple dress as she attends a fashion bash hosted by her husband Nick Cannon.
The grinning pair made a delightful sight as they arrived at the Project Canvas Charity bash in New York, which showcases a unique new trainer concept.
Posing on the red carpet, Mariah showed off a pair of silver sparkly pumps designed by herself.
She tweeted: "At Nick's launch for project canvas. The shoes.. Come on.. A winner!"
Project Canvas gives people the option to make their own pair of shoes while encouraging individuality and personality.
The charity’s website says this idea was "founded upon the principal that within every person lies a wealth of creativity.
"It is a project that set out to empower youth and young adults across the world to believe in themselves.
"People are inspired by Project C.A.N.V.A.S to treat life as a canvas upon which they have the power to create their own masterpiece."
Mariah and Nick certainly looked the part for the evening, with Mariah pouring her assets into a curve-revealing frock while Nick wore a white suit.
Earlier in the day Mariah had shared pictures with fans from the first birthday celebrations of their twin babies Moroccan and Monroe, where they showered them with lavish gifts including a toy Ferrari.
Mariah on The Essential: "Close My Eyes"
Posted by Jonny on Saturday, 12-May-2012, 3:34PM EDT
Mariah has released commentary on another track from The Essential Mariah Carey: a song many fans have identified as being close to them, "Close My Eyes."
"I spent four years writing this song, only because after I performed in Schenectady, NY, I started hearing this melody and singing it over and over to myself as I was taking a bath, looking at the moon.. Four years later, as I was leaving a devastating part of my life behind, I wrote the second verse, the bridge and the outro."

People: Mariah Carey Parties in West Hollywood
Posted by Jonny on Friday, 11-May-2012, 11:37AM EDT
Already celebrating because of President Obama's announcement in support of same-sex marriage, the crowd at The Abbey Food and Bar in West Hollywood was in for an even bigger treat when Mariah Carey showed up out of the blue Wednesday night.
"There was no formal announcement that she arrived at the club, but she and her friend B. Scott held court at one of the main dance floor tables – so she was very visible," a partygoer tells PEOPLE of the singer, who recently renewed her vows in Paris. "She was very nice and gracious."
In honor of Carey's appearance, the deejay started playing her songs, which caused the ladies on the dance floor to "go crazy," the source says.
Even though the pop diva, who stuck around until 2 a.m. and took some shots of Beluga vodka, kindly posed for pictures with many people at the club, the insider explains, "A security guard had to stay by her booth to control her fans."
Posted by Jonny on Wednesday, 09-May-2012, 8:05AM EDT
Below are scans from the May 5, 2012 issue of the French magazine Voici, highlighting Mariah's recent stay in Paris.
To Reduce the Debts, Vote Mariah!
No, it's not the middle class who will fill the public deficit. But, lucky for us, the diva is there! Tax the rich with 75% or raise the "value added tax" (tva) with two points?
Hello, those are pathetic ideas! Let's be clear, to bail out the states reserves, there is only one solution: Give the French nationality to Mariah Carey! End of April, the diva with the stunning looks was in France to renew her wedding vows with Nick Cannon. And she has warmed up her Golden Card.
To begin with, she has offered herself 4 nights at the Plaza Athenee. No, not in a standard room of course, but in a real suite, that costs 3000 euros per night. If you take into account all the rooms for the nannies, the bodyguards and the American breakfasts for all these "beau monde," she must have spent the equivalent of the national social debt.
And all the rest was the same pleasant news for us: between her shopping sessions at Baby Dior for Monroe and Moroccan, her twins, and her more personal merchandise at Vuitton and Azzedine Alaia, the singer has boosted an entire part of the French industry with lots of amounts containing lots of zeros on the chequebook.
Love has no price, so it's obvious that she ended her stay at the chic restaurant of the Eiffeltower, Jules Verne, interchanged caresses with Nick and rubbed out the interests of the national debts at the same occasion.
So, Sunday, May 6, 2012, we won't have to choose between Sarkozy or Hollande for president, we vote Mariah Carey!

'We're both kids at heart,' he says of working with his superstar wife on a family-friendly animated project.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon might soon be working together on a top-secret project. The proud parents of Dem Babies are hooking up for a spankin'-new endeavor that will focus on family.
While the details of the venture are slim, Cannon shared that it will certainly pay homage to their year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
"Yeah we actually got some stuff in development that we're working on, some animated stuff that her and I are putting together," he told MTV News. "So you'll definitely see her in that space too. Oh yeah, it's just something that we both enjoy, and even more so than that, we're both kids at heart. So we love those types of stories and fantasy/fairytale type of stuff."
Before Cannon explores fairytales with Carey, he serves as the executive producer on the forthcoming Nickelodeon flick, "Rags," a hip take on Cinderella, complete with gender role reversals. It features Nick stars Keke Palmer, Max Schneider and Drake Bell. The network chairman explains that you should expect more and more family-friendly programming influenced by his own real-life role as dad.
"I mean it's one of those things where a lot of the stuff I'm going to be doing in the near future is going to be really family-driven just because of the fact being a father and wanting to be able to provide content for my kids," he said. "So it works out really good. It makes you proud when you can have some work that your kids can go see."
In addition to "Rags" and his untitled project with Carey, Cannon just signed on to make his directorial debut with "School Dance," which will follow in the vein of "Friday" and "House Party." Variety reports it will revolve around a teen who wants to join the coolest dance clique in school, though he fears his stage fright will prevent him from passing initiation.
While it seems that Cannon is focused on making projects his kids can watch, it might be a while before Roc and Roe check out "School Dance."
The Essential Mariah Carey: In Stores Now!
Posted by Jonny on Tuesday, 08-May-2012, 2:00PM EDT
Today marks the release of Sony Legacy's The Essential Mariah Carey, a 28-track collection of some of Mariah's biggest hits, plus rare album tracks and remixes. In addition to 14 #1 hits, the 2-CD set includes fan favorites such as "Vanishing" and "Underneath the Stars."
The Essential Mariah Carey is available for purchase online:
Vision of Love:"This song will always be one of my favorites, not only because it was my first single and first #1 song but because it really does have a special meaning to me about realizing my dreams."
Vanishing:"I'm very proud of this song because I was so young when I wrote it and yet so many people tell me it's helped to change their lives."
Emotions (C&C Club Mix:)"This is one of those songs that I almost forgot about until a fan brought it to my attention via Twitter. I'm proud of it because I feel like I just let go and sang from my heart and David Cole, may he rest in peace, helped me get to a place vocally that I couldn't have done without him."
Can't Let Go:"This was one of my favorite songs on my sophomore album. I think it may have leaned a bit too R&B for the record label at the time. I still love it and look forward to singing it live again soon."
Fantasy:"Fantasy is one of my favorite songs of all time, it reminds me of feeling free, driving in the car and blasting it on the radio. There are so many versions of that song but my favorite is the remix with O.D.B. May he rest in peace."
The Roof:"The Roof will always be one of my favorite songs, especially this version with Mobb Deep that is on 'The Essential'. I hope people who were not exposed to this song when it first came out will enjoy it now."
