Some billboards promoting Mariah Carey's Las Vegas residency are apparently too racy for some travelers.

Officials at the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California say they haven't necessarily banned the image but they are asking for the artwork to be revised. They told the Los Angeles Times the ad for the singer showed "a little too much skin to be posted at the airport."

The ads, depicting Carey lying on her side and showing cleavage, got the approval to be posted at the John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, the LA Times reported.

This billboard, which promotes Carey's residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, is the same one prominently displayed along Interstate 15.
