Mariah Carey’s Saudi Arabia Album Covers
Images purporting to show Saudi Arabian versions of Mariah Carey's album covers have recently appeared on the web. Mediabum.com says that "Because of the laws over there her album covers had to be touched up to be made less sexy." Maybe. It sounds like something that would be done in Saudi Arabia. However, the lack of a clear source for these images makes me suspicious. They could equally well have been created by somebody playing around with photoshop. (And why is there no arabic script on these Saudi Arabian covers?) (And incidentally, I just read that Mariah Carey has 17 Number One singles, tying the number that Elvis had. This is odd because I'm unable to name a single song by her. With 17 #1 songs, I figured I'd know at least one of them.)

I was in Saudi for 10 years, and yes some of the album covers were doctored by marker pen (washable off if a suitable solvent is available) sometimes they didn't unwrap them so the marker pen was on the cellophane wrapper (that was easy to get rid of).

I've never heard a Mariah Carey song either. Of course I'm deaf, and live in a cave with no electricity.
