Was the Justin Bieber & Mariah Carey 'All I Want for Christmas' Video Too Risque for NBC Tree Lighting?

Date November 30, 2011
Was the Justin Bieber & Mariah Carey 'All I Want for Christmas' Video Too Risque for NBC Tree Lighting? Justin Bieber and Mariah Carey debuted their video for the remake of 'All I Want for Christmas Is You' during NBC's Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony on Wednesday night, a move that's already drawing the ire of viewers who tuned into the festivities hoping for family-friendly programming.

The video features Carey singing in a skimpy Santa costume and getting close with Bieber, who's showcasing his new, lower-singing voice. Although there's nothing any more objectionable in the video than standard MTV fare, the awkward spectacle made some NBC viewers uncomfortable. Whether it was because of the age difference between the 41-year-old Carey and the 17-year-old Bieber, or because of Bieber's paternity controversy with another Mariah, it appears the Peacock network may have ruffled some feathers.

The comment section of the video's post on NBC.com was filled with negative feedback from outraged viewers who found the video objectionable. One comment, from a user named Whitewolf80, read: "The All I Want For Christmas video was EXTREMELY inappropriate and quite gross;and I mean gross on every level you can imagine! This is a FAMILY show and you have 41-year old cougar Carey in a sexy Santa suit coming on to a 17-year old Bieber. She even caressed her breast!Would you show a shirtless Steven Tyler singing and grabbing his crotch in front of Selena Gomez?! You'd all be in jail. Typical entertainment lack of standards and double standards. Unbelievable!"
