Mariah Carey: Hurricane ruins secret 'X-Factor' Plans (  at secret)
Hurricane Irene is screwing with Simon Cowell's new show -- TMZ has learned Mariah Carey had to cancel a "very important" video shoot for "X-factor" because she couldn't travel ... and we're told it's thrown the show into "utter chaos."

Sources connected to the show tell us Mariah is in New York and was supposed to fly to meet Simon at a secret location to begin taping a special segment for the show in the last few days.

Cowell has stated in the past that Mariah has an important role on the show -- but he's not revealing any details.

Sources tell us ... producers are trying to figure out another way to get the footage they need for the show ... but so far, nothing is in the can.

Remember, Anderson Cooper showed a clip of Mariah at HSN (see July 30)
Anderson Cooper comes clean about the Mariah Carey affair
"I was doing a little thing on Mariah Carey being on the Home Shopping Network, and if you haven't seen it, you should. She was on for two hours, and it's worth the entire two hours. I was condemning HSN for not offering her her own full-time show, because she is genius television, she really is, and she deserves a nightly program to express that genius.

"So, in the course of that, I jokingly said I haven't really been following her lately, but that I knew she got married to somebody on America's Got Talent. I assumed it was Piers Morgan, and that if I was wrong, he'd correct me on Twitter, because he tweets every five minutes and it's been five minutes since his last tweet.

"Sure enough, there was a tweet five minutes later from Piers Morgan saying, 'I am not married to Mariah Carey, and I resent the implication.'

"And then he was like, 'I have a million Twitter followers, and I will soon surpass you.' And I was like, 'Ooo-kay.' So I repeated it. Once I got that tweet, I was like, 'I'm going to repeat this.' Piers Morgan is married to Mariah Carey, in case you haven't heard."

Many questions about Mariah in France
Guys, I can only post what I know at the moment, rumors are flying around as Simon Cowell has been spotted in Saint Tropez, the only thing we need to know at the moment is that Mariah will stay at the Martinez hotel in Cannes (73, la Croisette) from August 28 to August 30 and I think it's there you need to show your love! 
About her arrival, I don't have any official hour at the moment, maybe 'cause of the state of emergency due to a hurricane in several East Coast states including NY where the hurricane is set to hit in the next few days.

Nick Cannon on Mariah Carey Joining 'X Factor': 'She's Ready!'
After months of speculation, Mariah Carey will join "X Factor" as a "guest of a judge" for the much-anticipated FOX competition series.

"Extra's" Terri Seymour spoke with Carey's husband, Nick Cannon, who hosts "America's Got Talent." Cannon confirmed, "Now it's official. I still don't know what she's doing, but she's doing something! She's ready... she's excited!"

Sharon Osbourne, a judge on "America's Got Talent," believes Carey is "a perfect pick" for the reality show, saying, "She's the world's greatest singer. This is a singing contest... she knows what people want and that's why she sells millions of albums today."

Osbourne continued, "He [Simon] couldn't have a better person."

Sandra Bernhard talks about Mariah
Comedienne Sandra Bernhart talked about Mariah in new interview

You have an interesting relationship with Mariah Carey. Can you say something about your history with discussing her in your performances?
You know, I’ve always found Mariah Carey to be incredibly talented, otherwise I probably wouldn’t waste my time talking about her. She’s always—as we know, Mariah is intense. [Laughs] You know, she takes it way out there, she’s completely over the top. Like, years ago when she first started doing her stuff with rap artists, laying around in her videos in hotel rooms, sipping champagne. It was kind of like, “Oh, Mariah is getting down with the brothers,” and it was, like, very sexy and crazy. So I would just always do funny shit about that. And of course her whole Butterfly period—which, you know, anytime butterflies get introduced into a conversation, you can’t help but go, “A butterfly?” [Laughs] Whenever Mariah does something that I find really fun and crazy, like The Emancipation of Mimi—that’s just brilliant! It’s perfect fodder for me. Never am I trashing Mariah Carey, because she’s too talented, she’s a genius and she’s an original. It’s really coming from a place of sheer funny irony, and tipping my hat to the crazy of it all.

Rollin’ with Nick Cannon: Is Mariah the X-Factor?
Nick was trapped by his collegue Sarah on their radio show.  While talking about Mariah possibly be on X Factor, Sarah dropped a bomb and Nick was kinda embarrassed for the first time .  Nick was dating Nicole Scherzinger when he met Mariah.
The breakup conversation began with Nicole Scherzinger and Nick saying that they each had something important to tell to each other. Nicole said she wanted to go first, and she confessed to Nick: "I'm in love with you." Nick had something entirely different to tell Nicole Scherzinger: he was dumping her to be with Mariah. 

Nick was caught off guard and don't think Mariah and Nicole meeting will cause a problem: 
"My wife could care less about any of that stuff … They’re professionals. It wouldn’t be a big deal at all ... I won’t be there. I’ll be watching from home."

Nick also confirmed that Mariah did not want to be a regular judge on "The X Factor": “I remember those conversations that Simon and Mariah were having, and that’s what she was saying: ‘I don’t want to be a regular judge. I don’t want to be on the television show every single week. I want to be special.'  And it sounds like that’s what they’re trying to work out. So we’ll see. I don’t know. It will be exciting to see if Mariah will be on ‘X Factor.’ It sounds like they’re doing it real big though. I’m not mad at them. I’ll watch!”

Cowell's assistant, Sinitta has publicly stated that Cowell he her that Carey has definitely joined "The X Factor" U.S. as an advisor/guest mentor. Here's Nick's answer:
"I honestly I don’t know. People keep talking about my wife, Mariah Carey, doing ‘X Factor.’ I always say this: ‘CTC. Cut the check!’ Simon Cowell, you’re making $75 million a year. And that’s my man. I love him. He’s actually my boss at ‘America’s Got Talent.’ But Mariah Carey is expensive. You need to come off of some of that gwap if you want her to come on your show."

Rolling Stone, RND and other voters are not pleased
As it was posted on Mariah's Twitter to go vote for her in Rolling Stone's best collaborative song of all time poll.  ATLITL voted 

And now Rolling Stone and RND are not pleased, Mariah fans didn't distort anything, a poll is a poll !

Readers Poll: Best Collaborations of All Time
Mariah Carey fans turn out in force to make their preferences known
This week we polled our readers about their favorite collaboration of all time. This time around, the Mariah Carey fans rallied for one of her songs. It won by a huge margin. I can already see the furious comments coming – and the commentary on other sites saying this poll somehow reflects the opinion of Rolling Stone's editors. Well, where would the Internet be if it wasn't for misdirected anger? We welcome it. 

New Rolling Stone poll hijacked by fan power
Fans of pop singer Mariah Carey have come out in force to vote on a poll of the best-ever musical collaboration – and pushed their heroine into first place ahead of artists including Queen, Davie Bowie, Mick Jagger, Aerosmith and the Beatles.
Carey’s 1995 single One Sweet Day with pop troupe Boyz II Men made number one, suggesting the runner-up track, Under Pressure by Queen and David Bowie, was the natural poll-winner.

Rolling Stone comments: “The song wouldn’t have won if the Mariah Carey fans hadn’t stuffed the ballot boxes in this poll.

“Most of you reading this probably don’t think it’s the greatest duet of all time. You’re probably enraged to see it here. We understand.

“Back in 1995, however, everybody loved it. Boyz II Men and Mariah Carey were both at their peak, and the song held the number one spot for a staggering 16 weeks.

“Some of you may feel that it hasn’t aged all that well, but the voters have spoken. Who are we to say they’re wrong?”

Will Mariah be on X Factor in October?
Simon Cowell absolutely takes care of the hype for X factor US.  There's not one day without Mariah's name in all the X Factor news.

The executive producer still wants new mom Mariah to join the show, saying, "We just have to decide what she will be doing on the show," adding, "It's top secret, I can't tell you!"

Cowell continued, "Mariah wants to be, in her own words, 'judging the judges,' literally with a throne and a raised platform... and I'm not kidding." ( let's watch the blogs going crazy )

IF Mariah is set to help him choosing the acts for the finals, it's probably gonna happen at those dates:
Wednesday, Oct. 12 (8:00-9:30 PM)             Judges’ Homes, Part 1 
Thursday, Oct. 13 (8:00-9:30 PM)                 Judges’ Homes, Part 2
Tuesday, Oct. 18 (8:00-9:30 PM)                   Judges’ Homes, Part 3 (Special Tuesday Airing)

As posted before, Mariah wont be judge on X factor, but....
A few days ago, Sinitta (Simon Cowell's ex and assistant on the UK show, mad that Mariah will take her function in the show) tweeted she knew from Simon himself Mariah was officially set to take part in the US edition of X Factor.

Cowell was today at the Television Critics Association Press Tour where he exposed all the X Factor details and cast and crew, he said he wanted Mariah to be a judge, but she'll appear in a different way. "There's certain sections on the show where we do have well known people helping us on the show," Simon explains. "I talked to her the other day, and she's been enthusiastic since day one. But then she selfishly got pregnant which is why she didn't end up as a judge." §joking of couse)

The Press Release is out and Mariah's name doesn't appear anywhere.  Normally, Mariah is set to assist him in choosing his acts for the finals of  X Factor

Never seen before picture
I'm not going to post the entire interview as Morgan Carey's childhood health issues have no place on a Mariah fan site (just like Alyson's problems have no place either), however a few things are interesting:
- "Pat encouraged him as a child, fortifying him with the wisdom that "there was no such word as 'can't.'" He recalls her wise counsel: "She said I could achieve anything if I worked hard enough. I was 'special' and had 'no limitations.'" Morgan's mother not only honed his self-confidence through inspiration and guidance, but through action and discipline. Childhood violin lessons and judo training imbued him with an overall belief that he could bend reality to his will (a concept that served his superstar younger sister, Mariah, brilliantly).
- His new business Victorious Green gardens provide their clients a wealth of delicious, organic heirloom vegetables—without their having to leave the comfort and beauty of their own personal living space.  PGiGreen also posted a pic of Mariah's garden.

The National Enquirer strikes again!
I post it so that you know when you'll see it everywhere and in several languages that it's of course not true!
They title “Scary Carey” and claim to know from "insiders" she's headed for a breakdown after seeing her appearance on HSN.

Mariah's rep explains to Gossip Cop, "She was having fun with her fans!” and is doing great, and calls the Enquirer’s story “completely made up.”

Mariah to meet Tony Bennett soon?

Mariah won!!! 
Remember, early July, Nick told Mariah was considering hiring a nanny.  At first (before they knew they would have twins), they said they wouldn't get a nanny to help and Nick wants to stick to that. But Mariah is thinking hiring one, she told Nick "you don't have to stay home as much as I do" , so if he really doesn't want a nanny he says he will have to quit one of his jobs to stay more at home and help.

Now, Nick told they have a nurse for the twins (he says nurse, but it's a kinda nanny too), there was an interesting moment in the Cannon's house as the nurse uses the speak function on her phone and it posts automatically messages on the recipients phones.  There was a mistake in the message as it wrote "pornography" instead of "photography"   and Mariah almost lost it....

Nick and Mariah have a great story about one of their nurses checking in via text and what she meant to say versus what went over the network are two completely different things and it was funny to everyone in the world except for Mariah – and this poor nurse!
