The FaceApp trend, where people are obsessively showing dramatically aged versions of themselves, is still flooding social media news feeds.

Are you an active participant?

Singer Mariah Carey said, "no thanks."

FaceApp, it was nice knowing you. (not really.)


Before Carey's dismissal of the viral trend, FaceApp blew up everywhere and even celebrities joined in on the fun, including the likes of Shazam! actor Zachary Levi.


NBA legend LeBron James advanced his age.


The Jonas Brothers gave us a triple dose of the weirdness.

Comedian Amy Schumer posted a twist on the fad that didn't seem to be losing any steam at the time.

Enter Mariah Carey, who on Thursday tweeted:

"FaceApp is not something I acknowledge."

The queen has spoken.

And why would the 49-year-old pop diva endorse an app that trivializes the gradual degeneration of our faces?

Not to mention, the "GTFO" singer defies the aging process anyway.

So there's that.






Suddenly, people are beginning to see the light after the Butterfly spoke.

Yes, the mobile software application is Russian-based and is in the midst of a political controversy.

Democrats fear the app could pose "national security and privacy risks for millions of U.S. citizens."

On Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer wrote a letter to FBI director Christopher Wray and FTC Chairman Joseph Simons, expressing concerns that:

"personal data uploaded by millions of Americans onto FaceApp may be finding its way into the hands of the Russian government."

Despite FaceApp's CEO, Yaroslav Goncharov, assuring The Washington Post that the app doesn't "sell or share any user data with any third parties," DNC's chief security officer, Bob Lord, echoed Schumer's concern and discouraged 2020 presidential candidates from using the trending application.

Lord wrote:

"It's not clear at this point what the privacy risks are, but what is clear is that the benefits of avoiding the app outweigh the risks."


Whatever the controversy, FaceApp is still a creepy app that needs to fade into existence already.

Many Mariah Carey fans agree with her casual lack of interest in Russia's alleged private data-stealing time suck.

Speaking of Mariah fans, you can get her CD Caution here.

Besides, when it comes to getting old, time is on her side.

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

Redditor u/Not-an-Ocelot wanted to hear about the times that have made people give some extra thanks by asking... What's the biggest bullet you've ever dodged?

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.
