Mariah Carey doesn’t need a special occasion to showcase her banging body. That said, the diva jumps on any chance to get in the holiday spirit with an itty bitty bikini, and St. Patrick’s Day was no exception.

Carey, 43, made green glamorous with a series of sexy Instagrams. In one photo filtered with a shamrock-green shade, she poses on a yacht with her toned arms, tiny waist and long legs in full view.

“Wearing o’ the green. Erin go Bragh!!!” she captioned the picture.

Carey also posted a collage of Monday’s Irish-themed outfit: a green halter bikini (barely) covered by white Daisy Dukes and a soaking, see-through white t-shirt tied above her enviable abs. As an extra festive touch, the “You’re Mine” singer reveals a four-leaf clover tattoo peeking out from her swimsuit top. But don’t worry — it’s temporary.

Happy St. Paddy's!! (Shamrock not permanent, just for laughs!)

How did you celebrate? What’s your favorite bikini holiday?

What Kay said. I don’t understand how she looks like this on instagram but is a bit chunkier and a hot mess during public appearances?

Best she’s ever looked! Now she can wear all the clothes that she shouldn’t have actually been wearing before.

Can you say Photoshop??? That’s worse than Kim Kartrashian trying to make us believe that’s real!!

green filtered pic is at least 10 years old-before her recent boob enhancements-and MeMe and KK are the most nauseating self absorbed waste of space twitter twattts on the planet-MeMe’s mutilated gut is really gross-for having several surgeries in that area she is still like a refrigerator–she has to plaster these selfies after every appearance like the SAG and Golden Globes where she looks hideous-to make herself feel better-she looked like Nick’s transvestite father at the SAG awards-

I Have had 2 girls and have a few pounds left to shed but i am proud of my body and me,sorry I’m not a twig the world is full of ppl of all shapes sizes and i wouldn’t want it any other way!Would you?Idk if she had surg but she always had junk up in the trunk and a good size chest ,after you have babies your hips spread and your breasts go up one or two sizes on the natch! <3 to al ppl out there try to be nice once in a while to one another I hate reading so many hateful comments,It is sad! l get bummed out when someone is being judged just because they have weight issues especially a Mama that provides well for her children,practice love give love get love cause all you need is love….and food and water and

Haters will always hate!!! Smh.
The woman looks good. Give credit where it is due and I’m sorry who died and made you all judges…she is a mom yes but she is also a woman. Just because she is a mom doesn’t mean she has to dress is paper sack dresses.

If you don’t like the pics there are lots more to look at instead of all your hate!!!

I see I’m not the only one that thinks Mariah is a giant fake. She dresses like a 2bit hooker. She wore clothes so tight on Idol she couldn’t stand up! She looked fat & trying to fit in clothes that were too small. Any show you see her in, she dresses so her butt & boobs are hanging out. She has no class whatsoever.
