HOAX: There’s something interconnected between the coronavirus vaccine and 5G.

FACT: The coronavirus vaccine most definitely made Mariah Carey hit a G6.

On Saturday, April 3, the inoculated chanteuse became the latest celebrity to receive a vaccination and make a social-media post about it in the name of both public service and those sweet, sweet clicks. In a 90-second Instagram video, Carey talks over some health-care workers preparing her jab, which she explains by saying, “they’re having a medical narrative,” while she has a direct-to-camera icon/legend/diva narrative. “This is distracting them from doing their job, but you know how I am. I just talk and don’t really think about it.” Carey reflects on what a year it’s been since her first coronavirus post about washing her hands for 20 seconds with her children. The health-care workers tell her to relax her arm, but she can’t because she’s in her “filming stance.” A queen. When the needle goes in, Carey screams a pitch-perfect note that she identifies in her Insta caption as a G6. When the health-care worker says “no blood,” Carey says, “See? I’ve proven my point. I am actually a vampire.” It’s the most captivating and effective vaccine PSA so far. Let 2021 be the year of having a medical narrative.
