Goal reached!  Next goal ...

The ones who follow me on Twitter know I was a real pain in the ass .  Since mid July when we were stuck at 7%, I asked over and over to vote.  I'm sorry if it bothered some of you but as Billboard "forgot" to post Mariah's pic and "forgot" to mention "We Belong Together" was Song of the Decade, I was upset 

Anyway, we did it!!!!!!  Thanks again to all the ones who voted.  Mariah is now leading since yesterday, keep voting from time to time.

Next goal

This will take longer, let's try to have "We Belong Together" VEVO certified, we need to reach 100 million views.  Let's go !!!!

Arsenio Hall wants Mariah on his new show ...

I posted it here on July 30 but as I found out the source was National Enquirer (and full of crap), I let it go.  Now we got info from the man himself via Today:

The Arsenio Hall Show" is coming back to TV this fall after almost 20 years since it last signed off.
"I'm different, so my show must be different," he said. 

He does, however, plan to bring back some of his old show's biggest guests, including Mariah Carey, who made her very first television appearance on Hall's program in September 1990. She performed her single, "Vision of Love," but Hall said that due to her then-manager Tommy Mottola, he got cheated out of interviewing her. 

"I remember ... saying, ‘Tommy I want to ask Mariah this tonight.’ And I would get a message back, ‘Not only can you not ask her that, but you’re not interviewing her tonight,' " Hall said. "I never had the interview with Mariah that I always wanted to have. And now it’s even better because it’s been 20 years and she's still relevant and I’m proud of that. So I look forward to doing the interview I never got to do, the uncontrolled one where I get to sit with her and really kick it."

What's the last romantic thing Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon did together ?

Diaper duty doesn't exactly sound romantic — but to Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey, it sure does!

Life & Style chatted with the America's Got Talent host at the results show in NYC last night, and when we asked him what the last romantic thing the pair did together was, he revealed, "Waking up in the middle of last night to change a diaper!"

Naturally, we wanted more details — like, for instance, how the 32-year-old can even describe it in that way.

"It actually was romantic. The moonlight was coming through the room. It doesn't smell too great, though," said Nick, who married the songstress in 2008. "Our kids [2-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe] sleep in our bed and that's the only time they wear diapers now…is at night. Otherwise, that could be huge problems, but that's really the only time I get to spend with them on AGT nights. So that's a special family moment."

Okay, so that is pretty darn cute!

Mariah has all the closet space, so all my stuff is in the corner pushed together!" he shared. "I wish I had the most closet space because I probably have more clothes than she does because that's someone who doesn't wear anything twice. It rotates through her closet. Then it goes into an archive or she'll give it to a charity, museum, or something like that. Me? I got to wear my stuff again, so I need the closet space."

What Mariah says, goes!

Lee Daniels on Mariah Carey Criticism: "They Was Stupid!" 

Lee Daniels is one of the most controversial directors in Hollywood, but no one can argue his loyalty as a friend.

In our exclusive video, the filmmaker steps up to defend criticism of his dear friend Mariah Carey (who also had a role in his Oscar-winning film Precious) playing a sharecropper in his latest effort, Lee Daniels' The Butler. "They was stupid, and they didn't do their research," Daniels says of critics who believe Carey is too light-skinned to play a sharecropper.

"My Shoulder Injury Wasn't Nick's Fault"

Click here to watch the video

Mariah Carey dressed up her cast Monday night -- this time with a black leather studded covering -- at the New York premiere of her new film The Butler and she also opened up to ET's Nancy O'Dell about the shoulder injury she suffered while shooting a music video directed by her husband Nick Cannon.

When asked about the incident last month in which she fell while filming a remix version of her single Beautiful, Mariah joked that it happened during "the moment that Nick looked away" during the shoot. "I wasn't looking away, if you looked in the footage, I'm leaping..." Nick says, before playfully being shushed by Mariah.

"It wasn't Nick's fault, it was my fault," Mariah confessed. "Honestly, I had been working for a really long time, and you know how when you're posing... I was posing, and my arm was like this -- and it was shaking at that point -- so it was very fatigued.  And about the ninth take, the tenth take... I was on a roll darling, a roll... and the next thing I knew, I was on the floor baby, on cement."

Mariah Carey Recalls Scarring Spit Attack Evoked by 'Butler' Scene

Mariah Carey wasn't about to close her eyes to the past when discussing racism and the making of "Lee Daniels' The Butler" during a press conference at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel on Monday, also attended by Oprah Winfrey and the much of the film's ensemble cast. Carey recalled she was riding on a Long Island school bus when a student spit on her when she was a child because of the color of her skin. And the foul memory came flooding back while she was making "The Butler."

In the movie, Carey plays the mother of Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker), a character based on the White House Butler Eugene Allen, who served presidents for 34 years and retired in 1986. In the early scene of the sweeping period drama about America's tumultuous racial past as seen through the butler's eyes, a dissolute plantation owner's son rapes Mariah's Georgia sharecropper. Immediately afterwards, the rapist shoots her husband dead in front of their son, Cecil, who has goaded his father to protest the violence against his mother.

As traumatic as Mariah's scene and its aftermath is, what apparently disturbed the singer/actress most was the recreation of the Woolworth's Lunch Counter sit-in located in North Carolina in 1960. In that emotional moment in the struggle for racial equality, a white woman spits on a black college student (Yaya Alafia) simply for asking to be served at the whites-only counter. 

"That actually happened to me," Carey said on Monday. "I know people would be in shock and not really want to believe or accept that, but it did. ... That right there, that was almost the deepest thing to me in the movie because I know what she went through — and it happened to be a bus as well. It was a school bus."

Winfrey: "Where somebody spit on you?"

Carey: "Yeah. In the face and in the same way."

 The Butler Spitting Scene Brought Back Painful Memories For Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey was left in tears during one scene in her new movie The Butler – and she wasn’t even it it.
The singer returned to acting for the powerful new Lee Daniels film and admits the race message behind the story of a White House butler’s life was tough to watch at times, particularly in one scene when Yaya Alafia’s African-American character Carol Hammie is spat on by a white waitress.
Carey, who conducted interviews with the actress to promote the film over the weekend, admits she has been in the same position as the character in the past.
She reveals, “That actually happened to me. That scene was almost the deepest to me in the movie because I know what the character went through. It happened to me on a school bus.”

Mariah spotted in NY yesterday

She's undergoing intense physical therapy following a shoulder dislocation last month.

But despite her injury, Mariah Carey is doing her utmost to continue with her life as normal - and is determined to look as glamorous as ever while doing so.

The 43-year-old singer was seen leaving her apartment in New York on Wednesday with her arm still in a sling.

However, while many people wouldn't be able to make such a garment look glamorous, Mariah managed to with aplomb.

The mother-of-two matched the plain black sling with to her dress, and added a pair of dark sunglasses for some extra glamour.

On the accessory front, Mariah opted for a pair of eye-catching dazzling diamond hoop earrings, and wore her brunette hair slicked back into a bun.

And despite her shoulder injury, Mariah still ensured her nails were perfectly manicured, with just a touch of pale pink varnish.

It was revealed last month that Mariah had suffered the injury during a shoot for a remix of Beautiful directed by her husband Nick Cannon.

Nick confirmed his wife had slipped and fallen from a raised platform in a pair of high heels.

He described his wife as 'a trouper' describing the accident as 'pretty serious.'

She was treated at New York's Hospital for Special Surgery, and even shared a video of herself leaving the hospital in a wheelchair.

Later she tweeted: 'Still in a lot of pain - cracked rib, fractured shoulder, bruises everywhere, but the show must go on.'

And Nick revealed last week that Mariah is still suffering, and has found her mobility affected by the injury.

He told Extra: 'It is a severe injury, she still has nerve damage, she can't really move her arm right now.

'She can't really hold anything yet, that's going to take a while... lots of physical therapy.'
