On Thursday, Carey, 50, shared a selfie of herself with her eyes looking at the sky and with open arms, copying Mendes’ caption and post from a day before, where he listed the things he’s grateful for — including “old Mariah Carey songs.”
Carey changed up her caption, writing “Grateful 💖 The sun, tea, my health, my family, old Shawn Mendes songs, music, humans!!!” (Mendes, 22, had included a blue heart here, wrote “coffee” instead of tea, and referred to the “Always Be My Baby” songstress.)
Mendes was quick to respond to Carey, quote-tweeting her post and adding a laugh emoji and two hearts.
“😘😘,” Carey replied.
“May we all be happy and peaceful. May we all be healthy and safe,” the 23-year-old wrote. “May we all be free from suffering and fear. May we all be strong and feel like we belong.”
“Happy New Year ❤️,” she ended her note.
“‘Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning,'” she wrote, quoting Psalm 30:5. “Tears of joy and prayers for our nation and the entire world ❤️ #BidenHarris.”
