Let Mariah enjoy her life
We found the news about Virgin dropping Mariah on a lot of news sites, and on many forums, we read that the fans want that Mariah goes to one label, the others want she goes to another label, then that Mariah must sing like this or like that and then that Mariah must have her hair color like this or like that, etc...  We can only say that Mariah is not the "thing" of the fans, all that we, fans, can do for her, is support her and love her the way she is.  That Mariah goes to one label or another, that she sings like this or like that, that her hair is brown, blond, blue or red... it's her life, we have no rights to control it.
We love Mariah, whatever she does.

Laissez Mariah vivre sa vie
Nous avons trouvé l'info de Virgin qui pourrait "licencier" Mariah sur un tas de sites d'actualités, et sur beaucoup de forum nous avons lu que les fans veulent que Mariah signe avec tel label, les autres veulent qu'elle signe chez un autre label, puis que Mariah devrait chanter comme ceci ou comme cela et puis aussi que Mariah doit avoir telle ou telle couleur de cheveux, etc... Nous pouvons seulement dire que Mariah n'est pas la "chose" des fans, tout ce que nous, fans, pouvons faire pour elle est de lui donner notre support et de l'aimer telle qu'elle est.  Que Mariah signe avec un label ou un autre, qu'elle chante comme ceci ou comme cela, que ses cheveux soient bruns, blonds, bleus ou rouges... c'est sa vie, nous n'avons pas le droit de la contrôler.  Nous aimons Mariah quoi qu'elle fasse.

Laat Mariah genieten van haar leven
We hebben het nieuws dat Virgin Mariah zou droppen gevonden op vele nieuws sites, en op vele forums lezen we dat sommige fans willen dat ze overstapt naar een andere bepaalde label, anderen willen dat ze overstapt naar nog een andere label, ook  worden daarop besproken zoals Mariah moet dit of dat zingen, en Mariah moet dit of dat haarkleur hebben etc...
Wij kunnen alleen zeggen dat Mariah niet het "ding" is van de fans, al dat wij, fans, kunnen doen is Mariah steunen en van haar houden zoals ze is. Dat Mariah nu een contract met het ene of andere label afsluit, of ze nu zus of zo zingt, of haar haar nu bruin, blond, blauw of rood is ... het is haar leven, wij hebben geen recht om het te controleren.  We houden van Mariah, wat ze ook doet.

- It seems (we don't remember where we read that) that Virgin Australia will open a forum about Mariah.
- Virgin Brazil post on their site that there will be a lot of surprises and contests next year for the Mariah fans.
So, why they would do that if the news about Virgin dropping Mariah is true?
Posted on December the 27th.
I just phoned to Virgin Belgium to ask them about the news that Mariah is no longer at Virgin and they kindly said "no comments", wait and see.

Levy's Christmas gift to Mariah ?
Here's what we read on the AMCF and MariahBuzz:
"EMI dumping Mariah Carey
IT was the biggest contract ever signed in recording history. Mariah Carey signature at the bottom of the EMI contract was worth $80m for four albums. After one, it's over. The LA Times report EMI is negotiating to pay Mariah out of her contract. There will be no further releases for her on the English label. Her recent Virgin Records release "Glitter" is considered a flop, although it did sell over two million copies worldwide. However, two million sales on a $20m advance is not considered good business.  Mariah's "Music Box" album on Sony sold 20 million copies. Her collective works on Sony sold 150 million copies. "Glitter" pales compared to her previous work and doesn't justify the contracted advance of her next album.
Virgin's Mariah Carey debut couldn't have come at a worse time for the label. The big budget album was to be cross promoted with a big budget film in which Carey was the star. Just prior to the release of both, she had a much publicized nervous breakdown and in the United States, the film was shelved. The LA Times says Mariah's contract with EMI was for a $20 million advance for each of four albums and a $6 million music video production fund. An additional $1.5 million was budgeted to promote four singles. They say $10m was spent of the promotion of Glitter. With Mariah free to start a new life on another label, industry spectators are punting of a reunion with Clive Davis' new label J. J Records current roster includes Alicia Keys, Deborah Cox, Angie Stone and Luther Vandross. Mariah would fit right in.

Who dissed Mariah in 2001?
Here's what we found on cdnow:
"Who dissed whom in 2001? Well, we thought you'd ask, so here are Miss Truth's picks for the top 10 disses from musicians to musicians in the past 12 months:
1. Everyone to Mariah Carey: It wasn't just the press that had a field day with Mariah Carey's physical and mental breakdown in July, entertainers used it as comic material as well. Among the more famous quotes are:
- "I'm having a Mariah Carey." -- Usher in US magazine on his stress level
- On an episode of Will and Grace a character asked how bad something was, and the answer came: "Mariah Carey in Glitter bad."
- Saturday Night Live's Jimmy Fallon used it in his "Weekend Update" when he said the U.S. military was searching for Osama bin Laden in all the places no one would go: "Like theaters showing Mariah Carey's film."
- And, even actor Brad Pitt got in on the action in Vanity Fair when he talked about his hard time with success, saying, "I thought about pulling a Mariah Carey, [but went through 18 months of therapy instead]." (allstar, Miss Truth, Nov. 7)

MariahBuzz not fair with the credits
This morning we sent the news about Mariah and Luis to several sites. It was not yet on any site. A little time after we e-mailed to Buzz, he posts it on his site without giving us the credit. I know that it's not a speed contest, but if someone e-mailed a news, it's normal in the courtesy code to give him the credit of the info. As Buzz cut and paste almost all "his" news, he copy a detail we wrote ourselves and who is not on abstracts or The Sun sites. This is not the first time and certainly not the last that he will take the info of the others, but it will no longer be ours, 'cause we will stop to send him our news.

Mariah and Luis together again ?
Here's what we read on abstracts:
"The Sun reports Mariah Carey and Luis Miguel have rekindled their long romance as the couple have been dating for the past 4 weeks. The pair were spotted shopping on Monday in New York and spent two hours buying gifts in the Saks Fifth Avenue store where onlookers described them as "very much together.""  If you want to read The Sun article, click here.

Mariah and AJ find comfort in each other
After learning what the other one has been through, McClean and Carey formed a bond that only they can relate to and understand. A spokesperson for McClean says, "after finding out about the drama Mariah was in, he sent her a nice bouquet of flowers and a card that she received the day after her Glitter Premiere, which read, 'You're strong Mariah and everyone was praying for you. You have been an inspiration to many, including myself. I knew you'd be ok because in some respects I know what you've been through. I'm glad you're back on your feet and may you continue to do well. God Bless - AJ'. He gave her his number in the note and Mariah called him a few days later to thank him".  A source from Carey's side says, "they've met a couple of times for lunch since then and speak on the phone from time to time. I think they have found comfort in each other which helps to give them both peace".

Here's what we read on Stephy's site:
"Globe reports Mariah Carey revealed she's not the smartest singer on the planet saying, "The thing is I can't add two and two. My father's an aeronautical engineer, but me? Ask me about fractions and you're gonna have a problem. That side of my brain does not function".

Comments: I found that really funny, there's only Mariah to laugh of herself :-)  and by the way, I'm not so good for mathematics either, can someone help me for adding two and two?  PLEEEAAASE :-) :-)
Funny for a real fan, maybe trash for the others
The Daily Star (December 12) reports that Mariah, who went a bit mental recently after she cut her feet on plates and assorted crockery, turned down the chance to eat food prepared by popular big chef Gordon Ramsey in order to have a McDonald's McChicken.  The news has shocked fans of the dolphin-voiced chanteuse in several places throughout the known world. However, others have leapt to her defence.  "You have to know Mariah to understand her reasoning," one of Carey's staunchest allies said earlier. "Since the mental thing, she has been unable to eat off plates. Some days she can't even walk past china shops. In top class restaurants, Mariah would have felt people were literally rubbing her nose in the plate saying 'Hey Carey, eat from that or eat that, you mother' and understandably she's moved away from that world. McDonald's produce meals in styrene trays and they are safe. It took a while to get to them even. For a time she would just eat chips from newspapers with a few parched peas. I think she's still not the full deal, you know. She thinks she's in the army now because she visited those soldiers. She answers every question shouting 'Sir, yes sir' like she's in 'Full Metal Jacket' or something. She's learned all the old episodes of 'Sgt. Bilko' too. She's talking about making a film with Chuck Norris."

Comments: Maybe this post will shock some fans, but personally we find that funny and really in the wacky sense of humor of Mariah.

Petit résumé
Le Daily Star a reporté que Mariah préfèrait manger un McChicken plutôt que d'aller dans des restaurants chics.  D'autre part depuis qu'elle a rencontré des militaires, elle s'amuse maintenant à répondre à chaque question par "Sir, yes sir".
Pour certains ceci pourrait paraître trash, mais nous avons estimé, connaissant l'humour de Mariah que c'était amusant.

Korte samenvatting
De Daily Star schreef dat Mariah liever een McChicken eet dan te gaan dineren in een luxe restaurant.  En sinds haar
ontmoeting met militairen, amuseert ze zich om op iedere vraag te antwoorden met "Sir, yes sir".
Voor sommigen zal dit klinken als trash, maar wij veronderstellen, de humor van Mariah kennende, dat het grappig was.

Here's what we found on mariahbuzz.com:
"Sony duped Mariah with new album?
Mariah has been stating in different interviews that she's glad older song like Vanishing (a true Mariah gem) would be included on the new Greatest Hits album released by Sony. However, it seems Sony are up to their old tricks. Homewrecker81 reports; a DJ from "N1" (german radio station) did an interview w/ MC backstage at "The Dome 20". The interview hasn't aired yet, but he just said that MC was kinda shocked when he gave her 5 copies of the GH (he wanted her to sign them for a competition or something). she stared at the tracklisting for a few seconds and showed it to one of her people... he said that MC looked extremely ****** and asked him where he got the CDs from and if he's sure that they're not promos or something. they (sony) promissed her to add Vanishing and 2 other tracks."

It's confirmed
Here's what we found on MTV.com:
"Mariah Carey Heading To Front Lines In Kosovo
The pop diva will fly to the Balkans later this week in a USO-sponsored trip to boost the morale of U.S. troops who are unable to be with their families this holiday season.  The singer was already in Europe to promote her Glitter album and her greatest-hits compilation. She decided to perform in Kosovo shortly before her November 30 Top of the Pops Awards appearance in Manchester, England. Her statement coincided with an announcement that Jennifer Lopez, Kid Rock and Ja Rule would play a concert for U.S. servicemen and women at an undisclosed military base (see "J. Lo, Kid Rock, Ja Rule To Entertain Overseas Troops").  Carey's Kosovo concert will be staged right on the front lines, her publicist said. Carey will likely perform four or five songs, and the show is expected to draw thousands of lonely soldiers.
In addition to performing to the base in Kosovo, Carey will be flown by helicopter to four remote military locations to visit other troops.  After returning to the states, she will play four radio station concerts at New York's Madison Square Garden. Her December 18 appearance at WKTU's Miracle on 34th Street fest also features Alicia Keys, Craig David, Enrique Iglesias, Mya, Shaggy, Shakira and others.
