Mariah Carey Attempts to Fool Fans With 17-Year-Old Selfie

by at .  Updated at .

With two kids, a husband, and a new album to promote, Mariah Carey has a lot on her plate these days.

In fact, the singer is apparently so stressed that she thinks it's 1997:

That's a photo that Mariah tweeted over the weekend with a caption reading, "quality time with much happiness!!"

It's lovely photo and an even lovelier sentiment. The only problem is that the pic was taken about 14 years before Dem Babies were born. 

Mariah has aged so well, that she might have actually gotten away with re-posting a photo from the Clinton years, were it not for eagle-eyed fans who recognized the image from an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show:

Yes, in a bizarre case of judgment clouded by ego Mariah tried to pass off a photo that was featured on the most popular daytime talk show in history as a selfie she'd snapped earlier that afternoon.

And you thought it couldn't get any weirder than Mariah wearing a ball gown to a playground.

Like we said, Carey is under a lot of pressure these days - what with releasing her first album in four years and coping with constant Nick Cannon divorce rumors.

We really can't think of any other reason that the iconic singer wouldn't expect one of her millions of obsessive fans to pick on her strange deception.
