Better late than never. Mariah Carey is the latest celebrity to have hopped aboard the "Dolly Parton Challenge" bandwagon – the viral trend started by the 74-year-old country singer involves self-posting four images of oneself best representing the vibes seen on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and dating app Tinder.

The challenge has already been successfully nailed by the likes of Miley Cyrus, Gal Gadot, and Eminem – the 47-year-old "Rap God" star did, however, go off-beat by replacing the Tinder image with a nude Grindr photo of himself.

Check out Mariah's "Dolly Parton Challenge" below.

Mariah's post came as a 4-pic collage that stayed true to the challenge. For LinkedIn, Mariah had delivered a meet and greet vibe as she posed smiling and shaking first husband Tommy Mottola's hand while dressed in off-white.

Facebook took on family vibes as the 49-year-old appeared with her kids Moroccan and Monroe, plus second ex-husband Nick Cannon.

For Instagram, Mariah posted an eye-catching event photo of herself in a slinky black dress with sheer paneling below the waist.

The ante was upped for Tinder, though. Here, the singer posted a throwback of herself looking red hot as she posed in a leopard-print bikini that flaunted her killer body. The photo was also eye-popping from its background pink wall.

"Fashionably late," Mariah captioned the collage.

Mariah's post didn't take long to generate a response. By and large, fans appeared to be commenting on Mariah's LinkedIn photo over anything else.

"The LinkedIn," one fan wrote.

"LINKEDIN GIRL I'M....," another said.

Mariah and Mottola were married from 1993 to 1998. Mariah then married Nick Cannon in 2008, staying wed to the father of her two children until 2016.

"Gurl the shade," one fan wrote.

"LINKEDIN HAS ME SCREAMING," another told the singer.

"THIS LINKEDIN IS KILLING ME. WOWWW. LMFAOO" was another comment from a surprised user.

Being Married To Mottola Was Like 'Being A Prisoner'

Mariah and Tommy became an item back in 1991 when the music executive was head of SONY.

Speaking many years later, Mariah revealed an unsavory side to her time with Mottola.

“There was a conscious effort to keep me as this all-American, whatever that means, girl. It was very controlled. There was no ­freedom for me as a human being. It was almost like being a prisoner," she told Cosmopolitan.

1999 also brought a mention of unhappiness as Mariah said she "always felt like the rug could be pulled out from under me. [With Tommy] I felt safe and I felt a sense of family. It just didn’t work out because it became too suffocating.”

Both quuotes were collated by The Cut.
