Mariah Carey - Mariah Carey doesn't celebrate birthdays

Mariah Carey celebrates life anniversaries not birthdays.

The 44-year-old star - who was catapulted to the spotlight after her 1990 single 'Vision of Love' reached the top spot in charts across the world - has revealed she celebrates important moments in her life and not ageing.

Quizzed on whether she worries about the challenge of pop culture's fixation of youth since she's been a star for the past 25 years, she told the Observer Magazine: ''First of all don't round up. If you're going to round, round down. I don't count years but I definitely rebuke them - I have anniversaries, not birthdays because I celebrate life, darling.''

Before she added: ''Please put a LOL next to this, because people are going to be like WTF?''

Mariah - who has two-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, with her husband Nick Cannon who she wed in 2008 - insists she's ''eternally 12 years old'' and never wants to grow up.

She said: ''Darling, I'm eternally 12 years old. I'm going to give her to you.''
