Mariah Carey Celebrates “Love Affair” With Israel in Tel Aviv

Five-time Grammy Award winning pop diva Mariah Carey arrived in Israel this week to promote her new line of beauty products, launched in collaboration with Dead Sea-based Premier Cosmetics.

“We can call [my relationship with Israel] a love affair,” she said at a press conference Monday in Tel Aviv. “I’m just so happy to be back in the Holy Land. It’s beautiful here.”

Carey—who reportedly received $1.4 million to appear as the face of the Israeli cosmetics brand—downplayed how the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement might target her for collaborating with an Israeli company and visiting the Jewish state.

“I’m not a political person,” she said. “I don’t care what other people say about different political things that don’t pertain to my life. I don’t think it’s my place to act like a political figure. That’s not who I am.”

Carey’s 6-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, accompanied her during the visit to Israel, where she visited the Dead Sea for the first time.

“I’m hoping they’ll have a good time and won’t get salt in their eyes,” the singer said.

In August 2015, Carey performed at Israel’s Live Park Amphitheater in Rishon Lezion. During that visit, she met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara, and visited the Western Wall.
