Is Mariah Carey too sexy for takeoff?
The legendary pop diva was said to have caused a commotion this week, when new billboard artwork for her Las Vegas residency at Caesar's Palace -- which picks back up later this month -- was reportedly deemed too sexy and banned by two Southern California airports.
Now, while the 46-year-old singer certainly sizzles in the skin baring spot, the airports tell ET that rumors of a ban are simply untrue.
A spokesperson for Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California, explains that Airport Authority "did not ban the proposal artwork. It simply requested that the artwork be revised."
Meanwhile, down in Orange County, California, a spokesperson for John Wayne Airport calls the report "completely erroneous," adding, "John Wayne Airport doesn’t have any knowledge or input regarding the billboards in the city or community surrounding the airport. There has been no intervention. The airport never banned a billboard – Mariah Carey or otherwise. AEG bought ad space to promote this."
"If it is not already running in the terminal, it will be running shortly," the airport added. "The ad has already been approved to run."
Carey is no stranger to rumors swirling about her, and spoke to ET earlier this month to set the record straight on some of the funniest falsehoods.
