Mariah at Diddy's Hamptons White Party Sunday
Apparently Mariah will be at Diddy's party this Sunday.

Diddy's going to be doing it again on Sunday.
For the first time since 2003, Sean "Diddy" Combs is hosting the return of what he is calling "The Real White Party" on the broad lawn of his white modernist house facing a sunset-friendly bay in East Hampton.
Last year, Diddy held the party in St. Tropez.
From head to toe, boldface guests at the Sunday bash will need to wear white -- not cream, not off-white, not khaki -- or they won't gain entry.
Colorful accessories are forbidden.
And those who arrive in shirts or skirts with colored embroidery or printed details are asked to either strip off that fashion item, wear a towel, or leave.

So far, RSVPs have come from the likes of Mariah Carey, Christie Brinkley, Eve, Diddy's East End neighbor Donna Karan, Ryan Seacrest, Chris "Mr. Big" Noth, Kelly Rowland, Lil' Kim, Lorraine Bracco, and Star Jones Reynolds.

Party planner to the stars Jessica Rosenblum, says that every aspect of past fetes will be "taken up a notch." V1 Jets is offering charter service for Diddy's famous friends to the party, which is being sponsored by Ciroc vodka. DJ Cassidy and Doug E. Fresh will DJ. And guests can expect Polynesian dancers, fire-eaters, and even the live jazz band to be wearing white.
In the past, trees surrounding the property have been lit with white pin lights. And scantily-clad models, some topless, frolicked in the pool.

Special guests will begin arriving on Sunday at 3 p.m., and the party will last until 11 p.m., when revelers will party on at Dune, a night club in Southampton.
At the end of the night in the past, very select guests previously returned to Diddy's pad and partied at the pool until dawn.

One suggestion: If you're not invited, don't bother trying to sneak into the fete -- Diddy's security detail doesn't miss a trick.

Can I say "Vive la Poste française"?
I don't know what happens these last days, but there are probably bad vibes which come from France and attack me , first, I received hateful e-mails about that poor innocent creature "Cuddles", dunno why.... then (but that's usual) they steal the whole "Interview" translation which took us hours to make (France again), and know my bro Alex who came back from New York sent me a sample of the perfume he received at Macy's... I was very excited this noon when I was about to open my mailbox, and there.... that day which was meant to be the "Smell Like Mariah" day turned out to be The Hole Day , it makes me laugh, but it's not funny, a f*cking French post worker made a hole in the precious envelope and stole the lil' perfume.  I'm sad of course, but I feel bad for my bro Alex who did his best to make his friends happy.
Anyway, see by yourself the beautiful hole, it's not as beautiful as the lil' perfume, but at least it's original and you will not see it on any other website , well French bloggers, will you copy/paste the hole too .
Click to enlarge, the hole is more beautiful in big

Jermaine Dupri talks about Top-Secret new Mariah track
"I'm mixing one of Mariah's records today," JD said. "I don't know if it's her first single, but I'm mixing one of the records that I think L.A. [Reid, head of Island Def Jam] is thinking about as one of her first singles." 

The song is so top-secret, Dupri said he hasn't even heard it yet. 

"I don't even know," he answered when questioned about the record's specifics. "You know what's crazy about the Mariah records? When I work on a Mariah record, she always goes home and records her vocals without me. I ain't heard the song! She calls and tells me, 'I finished, let's go and do it.' 

"She's a person that you have to respect her for doing her job," he added. "She respects me for doing my job. When I'm in the studio, she don't question what kick [-drum sound] I use. She don't question if I'm using the right snare. She might say, 'I ain't feeling it.' I could say the same thing. There's been plenty of times when I've said, 'Mariah, I think you need to sing this part over.' But after the last album, we got a pretty good understanding. She knows what I'm looking for from her now. We're hoping we have the same formula this time."

Fall Music Preview
Mariah Carey - TBA: Carey staged one of the most stunning comebacks in pop music history with 2005's "The Emancipation of Mimi," so the pressure is on for her to follow up with another solid collection of the R&B-inflected, vocally acrobatic pop that first earned her superstar status. Producer Jermaine Dupri is back, so the odds are that Mimi's not going back in her cage anytime soon. (Nov. 20)

UK TV and radio star Holmes about Mariah in Maxim's October edition
TV's Eamonn Holmes was unrepentant last night over a foul-mouthed tirade in an interview for a lad's mag. 
The Ulster-born presenter called a controversial Premiership football star a "c**t" and also used the f-word when ridiculing pop star Mariah Carey. 

He told the Belfast Telegraph yesterday he had no comment to make on his outspoken interview with Maxim magazine.
But he did say: "It's definitely not misquoting me." 
Asked about his use of the obscene c-word, Holmes retorted: "And what - you're not supposed to use it?" 

During the light-hearted interview for Maxim's October edition, Manchester United fan Holmes was asked for his views on football 'bad boy' Joey Barton. 
The Sky and Radio Five Live presenter said: "C**t. What is Joey Barton about? He's an absolute animal." 

In reply to the question, "Who's been your worst interviewee?", Holmes told the magazine: "There are lots of people who you just think, 'What's the point?'
"Mariah Carey sent one of her flunkies to say that she was tired and was going to lie down. 
"I was like, 'She's f***ing tired? She should've been up from four o'clock this morning! If she's going to lie down, then I'll lie down with her!'"

Young producer Apex about Mariah
Apex, the young producer behind 50's "I Get Money" was interviewed by HHDX:
HHDX: If you could executive produce an album, a compilation of sorts – who would you have on it and why? 
Apex: Wow… Ah, man, that’s a crazy question, son. I’d definitely try to get Dre on there. That’s one of my idols growing up, man. He wouldn’t have to produce a beat; I’d just want him to put his voice over one of my tracks. 50 would be there because we need to do another smash. It’d be something different than "I Get Money". Jay-Z because that’s Brooklyn all day, I’d love to work with him. I would want to work with Fabolous because he’s from Brooklyn, too. I’d love to work with Snoop Dogg, too. I’d want to work with Mobb Deep because I think that they’re not getting the shine that they should. I think they lost a little shine, just a little bit and I think that I can help get them back to that Shook Ones vibe. I love Mariah Carey’s voice and I’d love to have her and Keyshia Cole on a track. I love their voices.

Mariah Carey bares all and tells much in 'Interview' magazine
I don't know why everything I like has to be, like - the most expensive limestone that was somebody's antique floor in France. For some reason, I always gravitate toward that."

So says Mariah Carey, telling Interview's Ingrid Sischy why she doesn't own very much art. Her tastes are too extravagant.

But it's hard to begrudge Mariah her luxurious cravings. She came from very little. Indeed two sentences later she's telling Sischy about experiences as a waitress, being denied her tips, which "I sometimes stole. I feel bad about that now, but you know, it was a tip; what are you going to do?"

Mariah talks a lot about her troubled upbringing, her controlling marriage to record mogul Tommy Mottola (she muses that perhaps if he'd even allowed her to go out with girlfriends to a day spa, they might still be together. Sometimes all a woman wants is a seaweed wrap), and there is much about her house, her adoring fans, her idol Marilyn Monroe. But there is no sense of Mariah's intimate life - no man, no stated desires for children, no slowing down even temporarily to contemplate these things.

For all her success, all her invariable good cheer, all those paparazzi pics that show her forever poised and posed in her peek-a-boo outfits, there is something poignant about Mariah, not tragic. She had her brief train-wreck breakdown in 2001, but recovered triumphantly. Perhaps she is simply smart and classy, and keeps her private happiness private.

I hope so. She signs her notes to me, "The diva next door." But she seems more a strong-willed little girl playing dress-up, and waiting for something else to happen. Something even bigger than the big dreams she has made come true.

But for the time being ... she's naked on Interview's cover.

Mixing it to the top: Malaysian abroad
Did you know that Malaysia has actually produced a double Grammy winner? Read on to find out about Phil Tan who mixes for the world’s top hip-hop and R&B artistes.
Curiosity killed the cat, so goes the old proverb, but if Phil Tan had curtailed his desire for knowledge, he might not have become the Grammy-winning mixing engineer he is today. 

All it took was developing an interest in the people involved in the production process of the records he listened to – that was enough to set 37-year-old Tan on a less conventional path to realising his career goals. 

Although – almost inexplicably – his name rings no bells with Malaysians in the music industry, the La Salle Klang-schooled Tan has two little gold-plated gramophones (the Grammy Awards, duh!) for his mixing duties on Mariah Carey’s The Emancipation of Mimi (Best Contemporary R&B Album, 2006) and Ludacris’ Release Therapy (Best Rap Album, 2007).

Is this what you want?

I'm used to see how some Mariah fans can trash her way better than the worse tabloid, when will this stop?????
I know you may like or not like a picture, but insulting Mariah with mean, vulgar words.... at this point, there's something going on that I can't understand.
The "Interview" picture made some of you act like paranoid people.  Your mean, hurtful words towards a person some of us  love inconditionnally are too much this time, some of you critizise her choice to be featured that way, dammit, it's her choice, if you find she's fat, then seriously some of you need glasses, look at her.... she's incredibly beautiful and healthy, but maybe you like the anorexic girls who die everyday because of people like you.
If you critizise Mariah's voice, her appearances, her way to dress, her way to act, her as a person and her in almost all the pictures, go away, search another artist to be fan of, let Mariah live her life the way SHE wants it.
And please, don't go wait to see her somewhere, or if you see her, spit it all in her face if you dare.....

No sign of Mariah on Nelly's upcoming album at the moment
Nelly has set a tentative release date of October 16 for his first album in three years, Brass Knuckles.
Earlier this year, producer Jermaine Dupri — who said Nells is "the only person I go in the studio with and party all night" — said Nelly was looking to get Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson and even Bruce Springsteen on the LP.
While those names aren't confirmed, T.I., Akon, Snoop Dogg, UGK's Pimp C, Babyface and Derrty Entertainment artist Avery Storm have all jumped on the mic. 
In addition to Dupri, Pharrell Williams and Bryan-Michael Cox are among the project's producers.

Mariah helped celeb makeup artist Billy Brasfield to launch his career
In the early '90s, Brasfield was asked to do makeup for an up-and-coming singer named Mariah Carey.
"She was new and green, and we just hit it off like crazy," he says. "She was incredibly loyal to me, and from that day on, I did everything for her, from the 
Dreamlover video to her wedding to Tommy Mottola."
Because of Mariah, Brasfield's career skyrocketed and he worked with a lot of music stars.

Mariah Says Tommy Mottola Was 'Restrictive'
Mariah Carey is "thankful" to ex-husband Tommy Mottola but also felt like she was being controlled by the music executive while they were married, she divulged to Interview for the magazine's September issue, which hits newsstands Tuesday. In the magazine — the cover of which features a Bruce Weber photo of a barely clothed Carey — she says, "I am thankful to Mottola in a lot of ways. I try not to vilify him. I have to forgive him for being so restrictive. I understand him not wanting me to go out and hang out all night, but going to a spa with friends every now and then, or doing things on my own would have made a world of difference. And I'd probably still be with him if I had. Maybe it's for my own good that I wasn't 'allowed' to do those things, but that's not how it felt. It felt like suddenly I had a strict father. ... With Tommy it felt like I had this controlling situation where I wasn't allowed to be myself. This conversation that we're having now would never have taken place." Carey also opened up about the catastrophic Glitter collapse that preceded her surprise rebound. "I consider 'the breakdown' a breakthrough — I needed to hit rock bottom, however it happened. I needed to understand the cost of pushing so hard, fighting so hard against the system." ...

Why Capri will soon be snobbed by celebrities
An Italian touristic media published that a few years ago, celebrities were able to walk in the streets of Capri without being bothered by people or fans, only a few paparazzi were trying to snap a picture.  It's not the case anymore, this year, celebrities who were staying in Capri tried to avoid the center and the Piazetta, 'cause it's not that quiet anymore, tourists and fans invade the island and can't respect the privacy of the celebrities.  Mariah for example stayed on the yacht of Roberto Cavalli and only went out once to dinner. Most of the time, the yacht was crusin in the Mediterranean see.
Mariah is not the only one quoted in the article, they also talk about Barbara Streisand who couldn't enjoy a quiet stay due to the same reasons and will probably not go anymore to Capri.   Also Tom Hanks in company of Rita Wilson and a few friends couldn't have any moment of privacy.
Too bad, the island is now also invaded by some unknown artists trying to be on paparazzi pictures to help launch their career.
Capri is not Capri anymore.

Hoover High Students Inspired by Fresno Native's Space Shuttle Mission
Tuesday's landing of the Space Shuttle Endeavour seemed to launch the dreams of several students at Fresno's Hoover High. From the school gym, hundreds watched Barbara Morgan, a 1969 graduate of Hoover High, complete the journey that made her the first teacher to ever go in space. 
Some students like Ronisha Occo compared Barbara Morgan's new celebrity to that of a rock star. Occo says, "That is kinda cool, it's like Mariah Carey going to your school and sitting in the same seats that you sat in, you know what I mean? It's really exciting to know that."

Mariah Carey Offers the Naked Truth
Mariah Carey is stripping down for Interview Magazine’s September issue, and she’s getting surprisingly candid. 

In a subject rarely discussed with the press, Mariah opened up about her mega-million-dollar divorce from music mogul Tommy Mottola.

She tells the mag, “Something happened that prompted me to leave. If somebody does something to me that’s too much, I have no problem cutting them completely out of my life.” 

She adds, “I am thankful to him in a lot of ways. I have to forgive him for being so restrictive. With Tommy, it felt like I had this controlling situation where I wasn’t allowed to be myself.” 

She also tells Interview about her famous 2001 meltdown and her hospitalization for exhaustion. 

“I’m far from perfect. I’m still learning,” she says. “I overworked myself, and I paid the price. I’m grateful to be alive.”

She continues, “I consider the breakdown a breakthrough. I needed to hit rock bottom. I needed to understand the cost of pushing so hard; fighting so hard against the system. But was I out of control at that moment? Yes.”

Mariah’s revealing interview hits stands August 28.

Mariah among the guests of Ronald Perelman intimate dinner
When Page Six mentioned to Gwyneth Paltrow that the shrewish wife she plays in "A Good Night" was "a hateful character," she smiled and told us, "Men feel that way, but women are sympathetic to her." The movie, the directorial debut of her brother, Jake Paltrow, was screened by the Cinema Society Saturday at the East Hampton Theater. The story of a man who wants to perfect his dreaming so he can better fantasize about Penelope Cruz drew raves from Paul McCartney and his daughter Stella, David Geffen (who was offering a job to Kate Capshaw's son, college student Theo), Ed Burns and Christy Turlington, Billy and Katie Joel, Barbara Walters, Donna Karan, Christie Brinkley, Jay McInerney, Candace Bushnell and Kyle MacLachlan. The stars then swung over for an intimate dinner Ronald Perelman hosted at his East Hampton home, where they were joined by Mariah Carey, Roger Waters, Andre Balazs, Brooke Shields and Chris Henchy.

Mariah's "All I Want For Christmas" featured in Caroline Kennedy's "A family Christmas"

The season's biggest seller will likely be Caroline Kennedy's "A Family Christmas," with those represented ranging from E.B. White and Mark Twain to Kennedy's grandmother, Rose F. Kennedy, and that famous bard, Mariah Carey. 

"It is very eclectic," agreed Will Schwalbe, editor in chief of Hyperion, which will release the book in October. "It is really both serious and fan, and that makes it very unusual." 

In "A Family Christmas", Caroline shares the Christmas poetry, prose, scriptural readings, and lyrics that are most dear to her, drawing on authors as diverse as Harper Lee, Nikki Giovanni, Martin Luther King Jr., Billy Collins, John and Yoko, and Charles Dickens. There are also many lesser-known gems throughout and personal treasures from her own family -- including a young Caroline’s Christmas list to Santa Claus and a letter from her father as President to a child concerned about Santa’s well-being. This diverse and unique anthology will become a timeless keepsake, and will enrich your heart and mind with the spirit of Christmas.

Caroline Kennedy's "A Family Christmas" will be a lovely treasury that celebrates the holiday season. 
Caroline will write an introduction in which she relates the importance of the holidays to her family and how the contents of the book are an essential part of that tradition.  Combined with Caroline's personal touch, this compilation of classic works commemorating the holidays will make for a charmingly beautiful and delightful book.

Contents include:
Relative Pronouns by E.B. White 
River by Joni Mitchell 
A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote 
Letter to Michelle Rochon by John F. Kennedy 
Letter from Santa Claus by Mark Twain 
The Real Gifts Parents Can Give Their Children by Rose F. Kennedy 
All I Want for Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey
The Loudest Voice by Grace Paley 
The Shepherd, the Angel and Walter, the Christmas Miracle Dog by Dave Barry 
A Visit From St. Nicholas by Clement Clarke Moore 
Un Poquito de Tu Amor  by Sandra Cisneros

A Christmas Sermon on Peace by Martin Luther King, Jr.

My personal press person () was a busy bee today and gave a lot of phone calls to the spoke person and a lot of stores, there's hope for a France and Belgium release.  We will wait for the official confirmation to give more details about the stores.  If the fragrance is officially confirmed in these 2 countries (not before a few weeks), stay tuned for a fan action in Paris and Brussels in partnership with the retailers.  Details to join the Heroes of Mariah street promo in Paris and in Brussels will be given asap.
The Fench retailer was very enthousiastic about the street promo.

Swizz is big in Bizz

"Even though it's his time to shine, he's still willing to share the spotlight. Dean has already been recruited to produce new records by a slew of artists - from Madonna and Mariah Carey to Usher, Chris Brown, Cassidy and Britney Spears. Now there's someone who can use a bit of sweet Swizz Beatz."

Mariah's suitcase secrets
In the current edition of Superdrug Magazine, celebrity packer Jessica Paster reveals the suitcase secrets of her A-list clients, including Mariah:

"I make sure my clients pack a walk-out outfit in their hand luggage. When I travel with Mariah Carey, she always takes one. 

The second we take our seats in first class, I get the dress out of the bag and hang it somewhere to allow the creases to fall out.

Before we land, I wake Mariah up and we both disappear into the toilets to change her. It’s like Superman’s call-box transformation. 

We do that on every single flight. After all, Mariah has an image to protect."

It’s an image the superstar singer takes so seriously that she leaves nothing to chance almost every time she leaves the house.

"It’s fair to say Mariah is my most challenging client," says Jessica. "that’s because she wants everything to be packed for her. 

And I mean everything. She could be gone for a weekend and she’ll pack like she’s going away for six months. For a three-day break she’d take nothing less than 10 cases."

So what’s in them?

"Mounds and mounds of beautiful things such as specially commissioned Donatella Versace dresses. She will also take two, possibly three, suitcases just for shoes. Boots, one suitcase. High-heel shoes, another case. 

Then there will be another case just for workout clothes, another case for bathing suits, another case just for lingerie, another case for long dresses.

She even employs someone to travel with a case-full of jewellery worth hundreds of thousands of dollars."

So how does Jessica persuade notorious volatile stars like Mariah that stepping outside the front door without the entire contents of their wardrobe isn’t going to result in a career meltdown?

"I just laugh and smile, and for some reason I get what I want. If they want to pack 10 pairs of shoes and I want them to pack just three, I have my own little way of getting round that. I can be very persuasive.

But if that doesn’t work, I’ll just telling them I’m going to put a dozen pairs of shoes in, although I’ll end up only really putting in three pairs. I’m a bit of a conniver."

Surely that’s enough to send tantrum-queen Ms Carey into a handbag-hurling rage?

"Actually, no. If I think she shouldn’t pack something, but she really wants to, she’ll just look at me and purr, `But darling, I just need to change so many times. You never know what mood I might be in..."

So after all the sartorial bargaining, how many pairs of shoes does she usually pack for Mariah?

"Oh my god. A lot. We would pack something crazy like 30, 40, 50 pairs of high-heeled shoes. She never wears flat shoes or trainers. Not even when she’s working out."

"Lil' L.OV.E." is dying in the US
The track is loosing spins everyday, it will simply die and be forgotten before even having a chance to reach a decent airplay.  Too bad, 'cause Mariah loved that song.  Maybe it's still time to keep it a minimum alive, c'mon guys, request it, vote for it, don't let it die!!!!!!

The scent of summer
When it comes to deepening the relationship with their fan base, it seems that today's celebrities can sniff out the best way to the purses and wallets of their devotees. This summer alone sees the launch of 10 new celebrity scents on which UK shoppers can splash their cash.

The latest scents are being launched by David and Victoria Beckham, Kylie Minogue, Kate Moss, Gwen Stefani, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, Coleen McLoughlin and Sean John (the last being the fashion brand from Sean Combes, aka rap star P Diddy). Most will hope to establish themselves as a must-have in the lead-up to Christmas.

Given the recent explosion of such scents, it may not be long before celeb smells' start to regularly outsell traditional perfumes. However, brand experts maintain that sales are secondary to establishing a deeper brand relationship with the public.

Will all this result in the sweet smell of success for the celebs, or will they kick up a stink if the marketing whizzes prove to have got it wrong?

Scent of a Diva: Mariah Talks Fragrance with PEOPLE
Mariah Carey has topped the pop charts for almost two decades, and now she’s setting out to conquer the fragrance world with her first signature scent, M by Mariah. With the fragrance just hitting shelves, Mariah chatted a little about the process of making a scent with PEOPLE. Buy the fragrance for yourself, $63 at

What was it like collaborating with Elizabeth Arden?
“It was so much fun working with Elizabeth Arden. I mean, I never expected such a huge corporation to feel like a family. and that’s what it feels like to me. Like every time I work with them, they’re so welcoming in terms of the concepts. If I have an idea or something that inspires me, there’s never a time where they’ve been like ‘No, we hate that.’ Every single person from Arden has been fabulous.” 

Did you tell them what your favorite scents were?
“Before I went there, I told them some of my favorite smells, and I described the Tiare flower — and they actually knew what it was. They had never used it as a base for any person before. When I got there, there was this huge board of all the things that I said that I loved. The thing about the blue grotto, Capri, and just all these references that I had given them. The sunset. It looked like it was a done finished thing. I didn’t realize how next level it was going to be. It was really amazing.”

So then you went back and forth with the perfumers? Did it take a couple of tries?
Well, we went to a few different perfumers and every time we would test a different fragrance. It was very similar to writing and recording a song for me. And not everybody realizes that I write my own songs — and they definitely don’t realize that I produce them. It’s a process that I’m really used to. They have told me that no one has been this involved in creating their own fragrance before. So I was like ‘Oh, that’s cool.’” 

Where do you spray the perfume?
What I do is I spray it — and then walk into it.

Strange world
Polls are made to know which stars have the hottest bottoms instead of who has most talent, most creativity, the most nicest one....
Anyway, Mariah reached #9 in a new poll of Hollywood's hot bottoms.  Number 1 is Jennifer Lopez whos most famous asset has fallen foul of the dreaded cellulite.  Judging from these pictures, despite a consistent workout schedule it seems not even the singer, nicknamed 'La Guitarra' because of her famously curvaceous figure, has managed to outwit the stubborn fat that resembles orange peel from gathering on her famous embonpoint. 
I don't care about JLo's cellulite, nor anyone's cellulite, but she said something so true: ""For me, looking good is all about looking healthy, and the ultimate beauty secret is about being happy in yourself."

Bow Wow "Out-Grows" Jermaine Dupri
Bow Wow is slated to release Face Off, a joint album with long-time homeboy Omarion this December and, interestingly, it's his first CD that will not feature Bow's long time producer and mentor, Jermaine Dupri!
Bow Wow and Omarion told SOHH in an exclusive interview that they've pretty much outgrown JD's musical direction and are looking forward to working with producers closer to their ages.
Soulman says... Long story short, they're sorta saying JD is getting old and paying too much attention to Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson's projects to give Bow Weezy the priority status he's accustomed to.

The guys behind the ad
On many websites around the world, Mariah was/is criticized for the ad, hum... Mariah didn't lay down and suddenly said "I'm borred, I'm gonna take the picture for my fragrance myself with a disposable camera" .  It all happend in St. Barth with fashion photographer Michael Thompson who already made photoshoots with Mariah for "Jane", "W" and "Allure" magazines.  Michael Thompson shot the ad for "M by Mariah Carey" with creative director David Lipman.  The duo are well known for the new Tumi ad campaign.
On a side note, Michael Thompson won the 2006 FiFi Award for Best National Advertising Campaign-Television with "Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker".

However there's an update today, from the latest news I got, the perfume will also be released in the following European countries:
Yougoslavia, Czech Republic, Greece, Malta.
A market analysis is still in the works to add eventual other European countries.  Also, some other countries may release it as well, but not officially by Elizabeth Arden, this means some stores or companies may import it in several countries, but it's only up to them.

Carey me home

According to the New York Post, Fashion mogul Tommy Hilfiger has a little extra traveling money after renting his East Hampton estate to Mariah Carey for $350,000 - for just Aug. 1 through Labor Day. 

Sources say Hilfiger, who's spending the month in the Caribbean, got his full asking price from the well-to-do pop diva for the high-season rental. 

The oceanfront Contemporary on exclusive Further Lane includes five bedrooms, 5½ baths, a media room, an outdoor pavilion with a fireplace and an infinity-edge pool, and more than 150 feet of beachfront. 

Carey could probably use some rest. She wrapped her next movie, "Tennessee," last month and recently has been recording her next album.

The singer has a yummy new fragrance!

Songbird Mariah Carey is the newest star to launch her own signature fragrance, and it sounds delicious! 
"M by Mariah Carey" combines the aromas of the Tahitian Tiare flower and toasted marshmallow, the Elizabeth Arden fragrance designers say.
"The inspirations were multiple places I've been, moments in my life and childhood memories," the songstress explains. "It combines my favorite scents and means so much to me."
The sensuous ads show Mariah half-submerged in water under a colorful sunset. Debuting in select department stores in mid-September, "M" comes packaged in a glass bottle with Mariah's fave symbol, the butterfly, as the stopper. The Eau de Parfum spray ranges in price from $39.50 to $62.50. The perfume will retail for $175.

The critics waltz
From the moment the ad for the fragrance appeared, I knew the critics would appear too.  It goes from "I like it" to "I don't like it" and unfortunately as usual with hateful and mean words.  That some love it or not is not the question, after all it's a question of tastes.  The problem is that people with no brain can't be satisfied with just "I don't like it", of course they need to add insults.  I don't want to change someone's mind, I'm not that full of myself, but take a look again at the ad, don't you see the warm colours? the sensuality? the mystery? of course it's not a real picture in the full sense of the word "real".  Open your eyes, it's art, almost a paint from the Italian Masters.  You weren't expecting a picture of Mariah standing with a long dress designed by Andre Leon Talley, right?  C'mon, it needs to attract, it's the goal of an ad and I can already tell you that one will attract and make people curious.  Amazing art masterpiece!!!

No offense to Thailand citizens, but that's hilarious.
Thai police officers who break police rules will be forced to wear hot pink armbands featuring "Hello Kitty," the Japanese icon of cute, as a mark of shame, a senior officer said Monday (August 6th.).
Police officers caught littering, parking in a prohibited area, or arriving late _ among other misdemeanors _ will also be forced to stay in the division office with the deputy chief all day, said Police Col. Pongpat Chayaphan. The striking armband features Sanrio's Hello Kitty sitting atop two hearts.
"Simple warnings no longer work. This new twist is expected to make them feel guilt and shame and prevent them from repeating the offense, no matter how minor," said Pongpat, acting chief of the Crime Suppression Division in Bangkok.
"(Hello) Kitty is a cute icon for young girls. It's not something macho police officers want covering their biceps," Pongpat said.

The stupidity of some French press reaches a new low
French magazine "Public" reached the highest level of stupidity by publishing the fake ad for Mariah's perfume, under the title "Le parfum du scandale" (The perfume of the scandal"), ad which was made by a fan from the Philippines and posted on a forum.  I doubt that the "Public" magazine checks a phillipino forum to have their infos, so there's only 2 solutions left, "Public" takes their infos either at the trash king Perez Hilton (who admitted and corrected his error) or on French forums.  In the 2 cases, the magazine has a lack of professionalism and work ethic.
For the trash regarding Mariah, I think French medias beat all the records.
So, French fans, it's up to you to defend Mariah against all the trashers, that they are part from the medias or not, maybe some of you could start talking about Mariah on forums with respect, that would already be a big step.

I never heard Mary J. Blige or Mariah Carey say they couldn't hear the cheers
At Madison Square Garden for the first of her two-show series that concluded last night, Miss B made it down the steps without incident and managed to put on a two-hour concert of singing 'n' posing.
While the predominantly female audience will hail the show as a triumph, it was one of the weakest Garden outings she's ever had. 

Her all-girl band - four brass blowers, a trio of backup singers, three drummers, a pair of keyboard players and guitars and bass - didn't sound bigger than a typical four-piece rock outfit. 
The band was for show, not sound. 

In the back of the Garden, the fans nearby would plop back into their seats whenever the pop piffled to a slow tempo. 

It may have seemed that Beyoncé was having moments of dementia by repeatedly asking, "Where am I? Am I in New York?" But what she was saying was she expected the crowd to be more vocal in its appreciation. I never heard Mary J. Blige or Mariah Carey say they couldn't hear the cheers. 

Beyoncé in her Arabian nights belly dancing routine - a total Shakira rip-off - was great, although I don't really remember if she sang.

Mariah's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, 2007 or 2008?
Remember, a few months ago, a fan asked the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce (who plans the ceremonies) when the ceremony for Mariah would take place. The answer was something like "we don't know yet, nothing is planned at the moment, it could even be in 2008".
An "Inside Bay Area" article writes the following:
"Walk of Fame ceremonies are usually announced a week or so before the event, and unsurprisingly, are often held to coincide with movie or CD releases. Why such short notice? Because stars' schedules change a lot, says chamber spokeswoman Ana Martinez."
Ana Martinez Vice President, Media Relations for Hollywood Walk of Fame, was so kind to reply to my e-mail too last week to tell that indeed no date has been set at this time for Mariah's star
And if.... Mariah received her star as singer, song writer and actress, wouldn't that be amazing
