Yep, Mariah Carey is still rocking an arm sling these days.

On Thursday, Mimi stepped out in New York in a plunging LBD, avec sling, to celebrate Nas’ 40th birthday.

Carey has been spotted in a variety of arm slings since dislocating her shoulder in July. The injury happened on the set of her “Beautiful” remix video with Young Jeezy.

I really don’t want to keep rocking this sling,” Carey told E! News of her sparkly accessory on Thursday. “It’s not a fashion statement, I promise!”

Here’s a closer look at that sling:

Nas officially turns the big 4-0 on Saturday.
