Mariah Carey’s recycled album cover is awful – and she wants you to send her artwork

Mariah Carey gets fans to suggest artwork after slamming her own...

Professional warbler Mariah Carey released the artwork for her new single You Don't Know What To Do and it's the same picture as features on her album, except her head is facing forward and she looks nothing like herself thanks to some heavy-handed photoshop. Also she has a gold face but, in the grand scheme of things, this is just a drop in the Photoshop Ocean.

Still, Mariah's not trying to pass it over as anything other than a bit crap - which is quite refreshing. Taking to Twitter, she wrote: "That definitely was NOT my selection for the cover... ugh!' and pleaded with fans to send some alternatives. 'Yes, I would love for you to send me your art for #YDKWTD ('cause at this point IDKWTD! lol)', she added so feel free to tweet her some classic suggestions for what you'd prefer to see on the cover.

A sandwich? Some ibuprofen? A new phone charger? I'm just thinking of things I need to pick up from the shops later. But go wild. So far people have been suggesting way more sane options, with Mariah tweeting just 15 minute ago: "Ok so it's 5am(ish) and I'm living for your pics/ single art!"

Check out her feed to see if you can beat the contenders so far.

This isn't the first time there's been some controversy about recycling old stuff and trying to pass it off as new in the land of MC - recently she posted a very old pic of herself from 1997 and attempted to pass it off as current (it's now been taken down, sadly). At least she's learned her lesson and is being truthful about the awfulness of this album cover...
