‘Time is not something I acknowledge’: Fans adopt Mariah Carey’s Twitter wisdom
The pop superstar was responding to the #10YearChallenge trend online.
Numerous celebrities have been getting involved with the 10 Year Challenge recently, posting pictures of themselves from 2009 and 2019 side by side to show how the years have changed them.
On Wednesday, pop superstar Mariah Carey decided to get involved with the trend but, as befits a star of her rarefied status, she did it her own way.
I don't get this 10 year challenge, time is not something I acknowledge. 🤷♀️ *Picture taken at some point prior to today pic.twitter.com/f5XUye3Hot— Mariah Carey (@MariahCarey) January 16, 2019
Stating that she didn’t get the challenge, the Fantasy singer instead posted the same photo twice, saying: “Time is not something I acknowledge.”
The phrase immediately leapt out at people as iconic.

If you think about it, it’s kind of deep.
"Time is not somwthing I acknowledge" here Mariah Carey is commenting on time as a human concept that does not exist as something linear like commonly believed but circular. In this essay I will- https://t.co/AtimQ1AFkk— dilara elbir (@elbirdilara) January 16, 2019
We would say it’s the best tweet of the year, but sadly time is not something we acknowledge.
