22-year-old Canadian singer Shawn Mendes recently paid tribute to Mariah Carey's old songs, and the iconic singer has just responded to his gesture.


It is always sweet to see your favorite celebrity show mutual respect and admiration for your craft, and this recently happened between Mariah Carey and Shawn Mendes.

The 22-year-old Canadian music sensation recently praised Carey's work by sharing a sweet post where he appeared shirtless and listed Carey's song as one of the things he is grateful for.

In a show of style and class, Carey responded to the feature by sharing an almost similar post to the one Mendes shared, but this time around, she was grateful for Mendes's old songs.

Carey shared a sweet picture she posted on her Twitter where she posed outside with arms spread similarly to Mendes. The legendary singer wrote on the image:

" Grateful ? The sun, tea, my health, my family, old Shawn Mendes songs, music, humans!!!"


Carey's fans loved the sweet gesture and did well to let her know. One fan remarked that she was impressed by Carey's lovely response, while another noted that this was classic.

One fan felt it was a shade, but another fan leaped to Carey's defense and said no shade was intended, but Carey was just being friendly and her legendary self.

Another crazy fact about the singer is that she only gets romantic with her partners on Mondays.


Other celebrities have joined in the conversations. Trevor Noah reportedly told Mendes that Carey's songs are not old but just timeless, while Charlie Puth quizzed the 22-year-old on the exact Mariah Carey song he was listening to.

Carey, whose Christmas song remained the best globally, has had a remarkable and successful career spanning over two decades. She has risen from a humble background and has become one of the most successful talents of her generation.


While some fans know her as a star, there are some details her fans do not know about her. Not all fans know that Carey's family is not particularly happy and feels she let them down.

Her brother Morgan reportedly said she abandoned their sister, Alliston when she had an accident and refused to visit or render any help. He also referred to her as a witch.

Another crazy fact about the singer is that she only gets romantic with her partners on Mondays, and before anything, she expects them to clean the room and do other chores.

During her high school days, Carey was notorious for cutting class. She was reportedly called "Mirage" because she would constantly skip class to work on her music.
