After last week’s freezing temperatures, New Yorkers were celebrating the warmer weather – the “tropical” 50s! – on Wednesday, but one Big Apple babe may have taken the celebration a little too far: Mariah Carey.The “American Idol” judge headed out into the winter weather rocking a black crop top (that showed off her taut tummy!), black leather jacket, floor-length flowing skirt, open-toe platform heels, and oversized sunglasses.

We can’t blame the hot mama of Moroccan and Monroe, 20 months, for taking advantage of the warmer temps, but a bare belly and toes in January?

The 42-year-old diva and hubby Nick Cannon split their time between their Bel Air pad and palatial New York City apartment, but for someone who lives in Los Angeles for part of the year you’d think a high of 50 degrees would still be a little chilly for her. Perhaps she was just prepping her wardrobe before heading back to sunny Southern California to start shooting the live shows of “Idol."

Either way, let’s be real: What Mimi wants, Mimi does – whether she’s sporting questionable outfits or putting her feud with fellow judge Nicki Minaj behind her. On last night’s “American Idol” episode, the two judges, who’ve been sparring all season, came together to give one lucky contestant, Papa Peachez, a shot at Hollywood. It was Mariah’s soft “yes” that pushed Randy Jackson to also put the soulful 19-year-old with unique dance moves through to the next round.

Fingers crossed that the “Butterfly” songbird brings some more thoughtful fashion choices to the “Idol” set.
