Brunch is SO 2017 — just ask Mariah Carey. The same pop diva who sparked the first meme of the year with her triumphant New Year’s Eve return performance has also declared the late meal trend O-V-E-R, all with a single social media post.
Taking to Twitter, Carey, 47, revealed that she had no interest in the popular mealtime that comes between breakfast and lunch, writing, “A friend called me and asked me to do brunch. Come on… I don’t do brunch, it’s daytime!!”
Before foodie fans could get *too* distraught, however, the “Infamous” singer offered up a sliver of consolation in the form of a brand *new* meal movement.
“I suggested linner instead,” she revealed, adding, “Definition: a late dinner,” adding, “#linneristhenewbrunch.”
She also clarified times for those that were asking, saying linner lasts “as long as kitchens stay open.”
Fans were seemingly delighted by the prospect, taking to Twitter to spread Mimi’s proclamation far and wide and to embrace the new era upon us.
You heard it hear first, lambs: Queen Mariah has spoken. Buh-bye, brunch!
Here’s to many a yummy linner in 2018!
