Someone Recreated What A ’90s-Era Instagram Account From Mariah Carey Would Look Like (16 Pics)

Mariah Carey is a true icon and she’s been in the game a lot longer than some performers who came up on Instagram. She adapted quickly to the social media era, giving us pictures of adorable kids and luxury beyond imagining, but you can’t help but wonder what we missed out on in the early years of her career that we would have seen if Instagram existed then.

Well, honestly, I’ve never thought about it, but this Twitter thread has made it so I can’t STOP thinking about it. Twitter user @Lambilyofmariaa is clearly a huge Mariah Carey stan. The entire account is more or less about her. “Lambs” are what Mariah Carey fans are known as, and it’s right there in their user name.

It seems like they’ve spent quarantine thinking up more ways to worship their queen and come up with the perfect project. It’s a series called “If Mariah Carey has an Instagram in the 90s.”


These aren’t just pictures of Carey in the nineties. They’re like historical documents. Each one includes captions and comments from celebs that Carey interacted with at the time, so I guess they also all have accounts from the nineties somewhere, too. And they seem totally real. While I’m glad I didn’t get social media until later in life, these definitely make me think about the fun stuff we could have seen back then:

“I used to dream of one day performing on SNL.”

People were really impressed with the incredible attention to detail in the whole masterpiece:

But can anyone top Mariah Carey posting about herself in the nineties?
