Mariah Carey admits the cover art for her new single “You Don’t Know What To Do” was photoshopped — but insists the decision wasn’t hers.


Eyebrows were raised this weekend when the newly-released pic appeared to almost exactly match the album’s cover photo.

It’s unclear if the new art is another image from the same shoot that was poorly retouched, or if it’s actually a composition of Carey’s head photoshopped on to the exact same body image.

Carey tweeted after the outcry, “That definitely was NOT my selection for the cover… ugh!”

The singer then asked followers to send their own art creations, “’cause at this point IDKWTD! lol.”

Her fans quickly obliged, and Carey retweeted some of her favorites.

“You Don’t Know What To Do,” featuring Wale, is the fourth single to be released from Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse.

Last week, Carey was accused of passing off a photo of herself from 1997 as new.
