In fact, a lot of celebrities have given the new fad their own spin, but Mariah walks away with the crown courtesy a witty statement that has now turned into a famous meme. A part of Mariah’s tweet read, “Time is Not Something I Acknowledge” and the internet is calling it the quote of the year. #10YearChallenge is Trending on Social Media: Funny Memes and Jokes Show How World Has Changed in a Decade.

While one hand, Mariah Carey is loved for her witty take on the ten-year challenger, the 48-year-old finds herself in a controversy with her former assistant suing her. Lianna Shakhnazaryan has filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court and is claiming she was subjected to physical and sexual abuse, which included being called a “whore” and being urinated on. That's a serious allegation, Mariah finds herself battling against.
