Mariah Carey hugs a stuffie

Mariah Carey hugs a stuffed animal -- or "stuffie" -- outside the Dorchester Hotel in London, England on June 25, 2012. The animal appears to be a lamb, but could conceivably be a goat or even a dog. We spent considerable time pondering whether the term "stuffie" is now the most common term for stuffed animals, before finally deciding to use it in the headline. What do you think? Mariah Carey was born in 1969, so she turned 43 the year this photo was taken. Never too old for stuffed animals!
