Mariah Carey Releases 'Infinity' Video

(Radio.com) What you need to know going into Mariah Carey's latest video for "Infinity" is that this is peak Mariah Carey, actor. She's welcoming herself to Vegas with the opening and she leans into the cheesiness of all that and being a "diva" entails for all the shots thereafter.

It's great. The acting in this thing is better than in the second half of Glitter, now that Mariah knows what a diva does, dahhling. In the video, Mariah does Mariah. Her onstage performance is a masterpiece of pretending not to notice one of her breasts is about to fall out.

The b-story is Mariah joins Tinder, but being Mariah and not Hilary Duff, she doesn't actually. Instead she swipes right on a fake app that brings her Tyson Beckford, shirtless and cheesy (she passes); a guy who looks a lot like Piers Morgan, who gets an automatic door close for being white and sweaty (is it Piers Morgan, tho?); and an almost-unrecognizable Jussie Smollett, who looks like a professor with a beard and comes bearing a cute little white dog (they date).

The video was shot by Brett Ratner, who is known for his Hollywood action blockbusters but who directed some epic music videos for Mariah back in the '90s. Watch the new video here.
