March 2009 - Heroes of Mariah
Steve DiCesare was so kind to answer some questions
If you take a look at the Heroes of Mariah contest (clues, questions and answers), you know Steve played with a band in High School and Mariah sang "With Or Without You" (U2 song) with them at the high school graduation night.

What's fascinating about Steve is that this song writer and guitarist is now 85% deaf, he began losing his hearing at 9 years old, however he still can play 'cause the sounds are still in his memory  When he plays with the band, they uses signs and he senses the vibrations.
Go take a look on the band's site

Q&A with Steve DiCesare (thanks a lot man)
- When you met Mariah back in time, you were all very young, did you expect her to become so famous?  Was there a lil' something in that girl that make you think "she will make it"?
Steve: Honestly-  yes she  had an 'aura' about her back then too. You could feel it.  weird-  but she was always super cool.

- Steve, I know you have lost almost 85 percent of your hearing, does that mean you can't hear any songs?  Including Mariah's?
Steve: I havent been able to listen to any new music in 10 to 15 years now, I cant hear Mariahs stuff and especially her voice when she throws it up into the stratosphere.  Im not sure I ever heard those high notes from her unfortunately, but I did get a chance to listen to the early albums from the early 90's.

- What Mariah song do you like the most?
Steve: As far as a favorite song, I keep coming back to HERO, and that was about where I stopped listening to music..... it is inspiring for me , coming from her, ..........and also we used it in classes, (I teach deaf education,  and the kids selected it without my prodding)  to practice sign language to.  It was inspiring as well to see the kids signing that song..... I never told them that we were in high school together.

- If you had the opportunity to meet her now would you be intimidated or would you go like "hey wassup girl?"
Steve: Meeting her now , would be cool for sure-  Im sure we would have a great time.

- Any other memories (not too personal)?
Steve: I remember Mariah being very real, very creative, and very cool.  She has been making some awesome stuff and it's just GREAT!

Mark, the second guy who was in high school with Mariah is out of town and will hopefully reply soon to a few questions too, according to Mark  Mariah singing with the band that night was probably what made them  pursue a music career

Nick Cannon Buys Mariah a Jack Russell Terrier for First Anniversary
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon - who celebrate their one-year anniversary in May - are prepping for parenthood: They bought a dog.

"I got her a short-haired Jack Russell terrier -- a girl, named Cha-Cha. She's 8 weeks," Cannon, 28, told Saturday at a concert in Coconut Grove, Fla.

Cannon said being married to Carey is "the most amazing thing ever. I couldn't wish for anything else. She's the most incredible woman. Being in a strong union and being there for each other is something that I'd never really experienced before, so to experience it with my wife is remarkable. We're together as one, and that's important to me."

He was mum on their anniversary plans, but told Us, "We never went on a honeymoon, so I guess I can tell you we'll probably go to Barbados."

Asked if there are any babies in the near future, he laughed.

More about the Miami party
Mariah Carey and hubby Nick Cannon overtook Cabana One Lounge in Coconut Grove on Saturday night, where the pop star proved that just because she’s buying everything for a nursery, she’s not ready for the baby quite yet. 

“Mariah was drinking glasses of red wine with a straw,” laughed our onlooker. “When she and Nick left at 2 a.m., Mariah took a glass of wine down in the elevator with her.”

Cannon was deejaying at Ron Berkowitz’s rooftop club that night and kept playing Carey’s songs. But once “Fantasy” came on, the diva couldn’t help but grab the mic herself. “Mariah started singing along to her own song,” a reveler told us. “She eventually got everyone in the crowd to sing with her.”

Mariah's new album!
Shade Sheist (featured on "What Would You Do" along with Mariah,Damizza and Nate Dogg) once said:

"Finicky fans and supporters and all that, they like you one day the next you crap. That is the thing that always trips me out. Fans forget sometimes that you are our supporters, you are not in most cases our friends and alot of them like to talk to us like they are our friends. Like tell us what to do or what we are doing wrong like they just know, but yet you're not running a successful multimedia label. You are not doing anything, you do not have any songs or are you a artist, so how you going to tell a artist about artistry shit and you are not a artist?

Jay Leno making fun of Mariah?
President Obama went on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
The opening monologue went light on the evening's guest: Obama's entourage was "still less people than when we have Mariah Carey on." 

Also (out topic), Obama and Leno joked about his bowling game. When Obama said he recently bowled a score of 129 and Leno chided him for such a low result, the President tossed off a remark some might consider, um, politically incorrect: "That was like the Special Olympics or something." 
Now this is the sort of remark that, sadly, has become commonplace in contemporary humor. But it's nothing you'd want your president to say, or even to think.

Nick & Mariah Plan another wedding
Just in time for their one-year wedding anniversary, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are planning to tie the knot again! In an exclusive interview with In Touch, Nick revealed that he and his wife have a big party in the works. “We have spoken about it, and it’s coming up — that’s all I can say,” the 28-year-old told In Touch during a party sponsored by Grey Goose vodka at Underground club in Chicago on March 5. “We are going to do what we said we were going to do from the very beginning.” After their intimate surprise wedding in the Bahamas last April, Mariah promised Ellen DeGeneres that she and Nick would throw another huge wedding for the family members and friends who weren’t there the first time. “Instead of trying to be like, ‘You’re invited, but shhh, don’t tell anybody,’ we’re just going to have another one next year,” she explained.

Mariah and Nick make an offer on Saperstein mansion
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are all set to celebrate their first wedding anniversary as the owners of one of Los Angeles' most prestigious homes, according to reports.
The pop pair have put in an offer to buy the Saperstein Estate in Holmby Hills, after spending the past three months house hunting in California. 
The palatial pad has reportedly been on the market for months at a whopping $125 million (£83.3 million). It is not known what Carey and Cannon are paying for the place.
The French Chateau-style mansion was bought by David and Suzanne Saperstein in the early 1990s. The former society couple spent five years renovating the home, which they dubbed Fleur de Lys. 
Reports suggest the mansion has become a mini-palace with Italian marble walls, French limestone floors, gold-embossed leather wall coverings and gold-leaf crowned mouldings. 
The lavish home features a ballroom with ceiling frescoes, a library with a first-edition book collection, two kitchens and a screening room with seating for 50. There's also a three-bedroom manager’s house, staff quarters for 10, a nine-car garage and even a private jogging track. 
A source close to Carey and Cannon, who wed at the pop superstar's Bahamas home in Eleuthera last April (08), says, "They like the home because there's so little that needs doing to it."

Mariah also said she's in the middle of working on a song and it's going to be a favorite, kind of an inspiration with a beat to it, a ballad with uplifting lyrics.

Guest Star
It's not out of the ordinary for Mariah Carey to appear on the Billboard Hot 100. What is notable is when she does so in a featured role, as is the case this week, as the-Dream's "My Love," on which Carey guests, debuts at No. 82. The song marks Carey's 39th chart entry but only her second as a featured artist. She previously rode shotgun on Jadakiss' "U Make Me Wanna," which peaked at No. 21 in 2004.

Nick's letter to the fans
Don't worry, my site will not become a Nick fan site, a lot sent me already hate enough 'cause I stand up for Mariah anytime and the last days I stood up for Nick, let me be clear, I don't know Nick, the first time I heard his name is when he dated/married Mariah, so this will not become a Nick fan site like some stated.  I posted the infos these last days 'cause it was scandalous and lame to insult Mariah on her hubby's blog... (or anywhere else)  get it?
Some people are really mentally sick, really... 

Anyway, here's what he wrote on his blog:
"Lambs, You guys are the best! You guys stick up for Mariah and always have. If you noticed in my post to the “Haters” I never mentioned the world Lambs because I know you guys are the real true definition of fans. Lambs are actually more than that, you guys are literally Mariah’s family. You don’t know how much she loves you all and how happy you have always made her. You all have rolled with her through everything. So when we got married I was surprised that I was marrying into a Worldwide Family. And just like in any marriage, some family members embrace you, some don’t, and some take time to invite you in. It’s like one big version of “MEET THE PARENTS” LOL.  So I appreciate all the Lambs who have embraced me and the ones who haven’t yet, I am totally okay with that. I understand. Some In-Laws never get along!! But I want my site to be an open forum for you to voice all your opinions. A great man once said, “I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will die for the right for you to say it.” I encourage and welcome criticism, especially when done  with respect.

Again the only issue I had was the few people who were making vulgar and slanderous comments about my wife. I will never allow anyone to disrespect Mariah in my presence. And I believe I have personally reached out to everyone who was making those type of comments and nipped it in the bud. Again to the Lambs, you guys are STONE WINNERS! Thank you for loving and supporting Mariah past, present, and future! P.S. Wait until you guys hear the new album! STONE GROOVE SMASH HIT WONDERS!!! (and no I would never be worthy enough to be featured on a Mariah record, don’t worry) LOL!"

"they're just trying to see if (my wife) Mariah (Carey) is going to walk in"
Extracts from USA Today article about Nick:
- "I've got co-workers tip-toeing past my door pretending like they're using the copier, going in all of the pantries, but really they're just trying to see if (my wife) Mariah (Carey) is going to walk in. She comes by every once in a while, so they might catch her,".

- Cannon, just one month shy of celebrating his one-year anniversary with Carey, says she "loves" his new job. "Nothing has really changed, because she sleeps during the day, especially because she's working on an album and has to rest her voice. She doesn't even know when I'm gone," he says. "When I get home, she's just getting up, and we hang out. I don't sleep. My schedule is so weird. "

- Beginning this summer, he and his celeb friends will travel the country and surprise ordinary teens who are doing extraordinary things in their communities. Don't be surprised if Mrs. Cannon shows up with her hubby.
"The great thing about her and one of the reasons I appreciate her so much is with her busy schedule and everything she has going on, she always has the time to support what I'm doing," Cannon says. "That's what a marriage and a union is really about. Outside of all of the fame and craziness, we just are best friends and have so much fun together and support. To have someone to bounce creative ideas off for 24/7 is amazing."

Also on Cannon's to-do list: having a baby with Carey.
"We're definitely moving towards that," Cannon says. "There were a couple of things you want to get established first. You want to enjoy each other for the first year, and we've traveled quite a bit."
He continues, "When you start a union, that has to be one of things that is on the forefront of your mind, but we're so busy with everything else. We love each other, so we're constantly in practice. We're going to let nature take its course, but the course is not a long one."

Important Info on "My Love
A couple days ago, fans were stunned to see what seemed to be "My Love" dropped from number 60 on iTunes to out of the Top 100 completely. What in fact happened was that it was the "single" version that had been available on iTunes for a couple weeks now that was number 60. Once The-Dream's album became available on iTunes, the label pulled the single version of the song. 

Something interesting...  first of all, My Love, album cut, no longer says "featuring Mariah Carey" as it did with the single on iTunes, but rather "& Mariah Carey"... "The-Dream & Mariah Carey". Now they both receive equal credit, it seems.

The iTunes links previously posted to the single version of My Love are no longer valid.  Look for the album version on iTunes now!!!!

Please download, request and request again now!!!!!!

"Only thing that I believe is totally unfair, unwarranted, and uncalled for is when people insult my wife. She is the most loving, caring, giving and kind hearted person I have ever met. She doesn’t deserve any of the disrespectful comments that are made about her. And the craziest thing is a lot of these comments come from people who claim to be her biggest fans!!"

How far will they go?
I don't even know what to say anymore, some people call themselves fans and can't stop bashing Mariah.  During all those years being a fan, I thought I had seen/read it all, but it gets worse and worse.  I just don't get it.  Insulting Mariah, bashing her constantly and now going on her hubby's blog to insult him too, where and when will it end.  Fake asses, fake fans, you're scary.  No updates today, I'm absolutely disgusted.

Mariah appearing on America’s Go Talent: "That was a lie"
Nick Cannon dished to The Boots Girls Thursday night at Chicago’s Underground for owner Billy Dec’s blog party for about his life with Mariah Carey, their plans to have children in the future.

BG: So, I heard that Mariah was going to make an appearance on America’s Go Talent?
NC: That was a lie. I don’t know who made that up. People said that is the reason why I got the job. People just make some stuff up in the press.

BG: Are you trying to trick us… or maybe surprise us?
NC: I swear. That’s one thing, I never lie about anything. If you look in the history of all of my interviews, if I say something it’s usually true. But yeah, I don’t know who made that up. That’s a weird rumor too. I mean she might come to a show or two in the back, but I doubt you will see her sitting next to somebody’s grandma in the audience.

BG: And onto your personal life. There’s been a lot of rumors going on…
pregnancy rumors. Can you fill me in?
NC: Oh no. More lies.

BG: Do you see kids in your future?
NC: I hope to see kids in my future. I mean that’s the whole purpose of starting a family and getting married and all that stuff. If you’re saying like right now, nah, not right now.

BG: So, it’s not in your near future?
NC: The press was saying that we were at fertility clinics. I’m just saying all my stuff is working very well. I don’t need that!

The-Dream talks about Mariah
The songwriter and R&B singer Terius Nash has worn $2,000 worth of rolled-up bills on a chain around his neck, but he would like to cultivate a much more expensive habit. 

“Mariah Carey took me up in her private jet last week,” said Mr. Nash, who records under the name The-Dream. “It was like: Ooooooh! I’ve got to get me one of these. Because now that I’ve got a taste, I’m never going back. I’m going to fly this thing everywhere — to L.A., to Atlanta, to New York. I’m going to fly this thing down the street and park it outside your apartment.”

Over the past year they have composed more than 200 songs, working with artists as diverse as Usher, Jesse McCartney, Sting and Celine Dion, at a rate of $110,000 to $165,000 per track, Mr. Stewart said.

When the Grammy nominations for 2009 were announced, he was upset that his solo work was overlooked. 

“Even though in my mind I know I should have beat everyone, I also know that some people missed the first album,” he said. “So now it’s about marketing. Now I’ve got the Mariahs and the Kanyes and the Jamie Foxxes of the world saying, ‘I’ve seen The-Dream write four hit songs in 40 minutes.’ Soon the pop world will be like, ‘O.K., we see you now.’ ” 

“ ‘Love vs. Money’ is music as theater, and no one does that better than The-Dream,” said Stephen Hill, president for music programming and specials for BET. “But he also knows how to give a young, black audience what they want.” Mr. Hill pointed to “Sweat It Out,” a song about a woman who has just perfected a slick hairstyle, only to see it frizz up when things get steamy. 

If for some reason the new album isn’t a hit, his day job isn’t too shabby. He’s currently working with Ms. Carey on her next album.

Nick Cannon Dishes on Having a Baby With Mariah Carey
Nick Cannon lent his deejaying skills Thursday night at Chicago hot spot Underground, where club owner Billy Dec celebrated the launch of his new blog.

Before spinning tracks from Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco, Nick dished on fellow musicians Chris Brown and Michael Jackson and, of course, wife Mariah Carey.

Regarding Chris Brown's alleged attack on Rihanna, Cannon told "Obviously the situation is a horrible situation... things that are quite unfortunate went down but I'm not here to judge anybody.

Whether or not he'll continue to play Brown's music, Nick added, "I'm gonna play music cause music is music. Music is meant to make people feel good so that's how we gonna get down. Definitely I pray for him, I haven't actually spoken to him, but he's in my prayers."

As for the announcement of Michael Jackson's, comeback, an excited Cannon vowed, "I'm about to get my flight to London right now so I can see the show!"

The America's Got Talent host stayed mum regarding any big plans for his one year anniversary to Mariah Carey, (the two married April 30), but did take the time to clear up the longstanding rumors that he and Mariah were expecting a baby.

"I mean we're gonna let nature take it's course, we're just enjoying each other right now and whatever happens happens."

Adding that Mariah is not currently pregnant Nick said, "It's one of those things where you don't really plan for those types of things. It's family, it's love. Of course that's what we want and when it happens it's gonna happen. Am I having sex? And that's usually how it happens right?"

Cannon ended the night with a crowd-pleasing tune none other than Mariah Carey's "Fantasy."

New York is no place to raise a child
Mariah Carey  and Nick Cannon have given up their house hunt in California's San Fernando Valley - because they're desperate to start a family over the hill in Los Angeles.
The thoughtful couple has been looking at schools as well as mansions, after deciding that Carey's native New York was no place to raise a child.
But, two weeks after Carey splashed out over $200,000 (GBP142,800) on furniture at Beverly Hills' trendy Kreiss store, she and her husband are still looking for a home to put it all in.
An insider tells WENN, "They still don't have a house yet, but they do have an interior designer helping them make their choice and they've ruled out buying a place in the Valley.
"I don't believe Mariah is pregnant yet but she and Nick are talking about having children and they want their kids to go to school in Los Angeles." Carey certainly doesn't look pregnant, but onlookers spotted her declining alcohol during a recent business lunch with Cannon and advisors, while her husband sipped beer.
One diner at the restaurant the pop star chose for the luncheon says, "She drank ice tea. Maybe she just wanted to keep a clear head. She certainly didn't look pregnant." Meanwhile, a new report in U.S. magazine In Touch Weekly suggests Carey, 39, has been paying visits to a Beverly Hills fertility expert.
She and Cannon were spotted holding hands and laughing as they left the Southern California Reproductive Center on 19 February (09).
Both Carey and Cannon, who wed last April (08), have spoken about their family plans, with actor/rapper Cannon hoping for a big family.
He recently said, "Maybe we'll have as many (kids) as the Octo-mom." A source tells the publication, "Mariah has always wanted a baby."

DJ BackSide met the "Always Be My Baby" kid
I was at one of my good friends clubs last nite in Hollywood when she introduced me to what seemed like a random dude. Nah, it was this dude Shan Elliot. He was the lil boy who sneaked out with the lil mariah carey in her 1996 Always Be My Baby video (viewed here).

It wasn't so much that he was this big star, it was more so taking be back to 1996, and basically remembering how much i loved that song (one of Mariah's best) and could remember that video, and him in it, and more importantly how i remembered copy-catting that scene in real life at summer camp myself and sneaking off with some boy! lol. Not only was this one of those 'where-are-they' now moments, but it just reminded me that music really is the timeline to our lives--it basically documents one from birth til now. just dope thinkin' bout that!

Shan is now living in Hollywood writing scripts and acting here and there. More on him here

"My Love" in Belgium and France
It's so frustrating and discouraging!
Even if the track is already played on some radios in Belgium and France, the local labels don't plan to release the track and probably not the album either.  In Belgium, there's no word at the moment for a release.  In France it's even worse, The-Dream is under a division of Universal and when I asked for infos, the person on the phone asked me "what" was The-Dream, not "who" but "what", I can't even know what to say.
It's getting worse and worse!
Bilel wanted to launch an action for "My Love" in France, but as the label doesn't even know who's The-Dream.... 
Anyway, do your thang guys, request the track on your radios. Fans can maybe make some hype, that's all we can do at the moment.

Wow, bad news!
All Virgin Megastores in US to close by summer
"Music sales have declined nationwide in seven of the last eight years, largely because of illegal file-sharing over the Internet and the tendency to buy individual songs rather than full albums through Apple Inc.'s iTunes and other stores."

"People can go online to buy music, but there won't be any replacement for the events that we held," Wright said. "Times Square was particularly famous for that."

Mariah Carey's Real Baby Barks 
Mariah Carey is not pregnant, thank you. She is working on her new CD with producer-writer The Dream, however, with whom she’s already had a couple of number 1 singles.

The album will follow last year’s hit, E=MC2, on which The Dream — aka Terius Nash — produced her hit, “Touch My Body” and “My Love.” For those of you don’t completely get it (myself included) these producers have nicknames like The Dream. They also write a lot of very melodic pop music. Mariah’s in good hands.

There’s a lot more going on in Carey’s life these days although she is not—not- pregnant. We laughed about all those “baby bump” pictures that appear in tabloids week after week. Carey seems pretty sanguine about enjoying the conceiving process with new husband, Nick Cannon.

Cannon, by the way, tells me he’s not giving up acting to host “America’s Got Talent.” “The opportunity came up and I thought it would be fun,” he said. Nick is a gifted actor – check him out in the movie “Bobby” from 2006 — and is young enough to take some detours along the way.

Nick isn’t the only member of the Carey-Cannon family to get into reality TV. Mariah says, perhaps only half-joking, that her Jack Russell terrier, named Jack, may also get his own show. Jack is often referred to as Mariah’s ‘real baby.’ He even stars in his own home videos on YouTube. “It will all about our lives seen through his eyes,” the pop star said. Stranger things have happened.

A bigger question right now, aside from all this baby and dog talk, is who is managing Carey. She and Benny Medina parted ways amicably last year. Medina turned up an Oscar party with Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, and may be getting back into the management game with them. (Medina is credited for Lopez’s major successes.)

Great!  Maybe even a new record! 
When we were asked to follow Mariah on Twitter on January 29,  we were not that much to support it, until last week Mariah had only 486 followers.  What a shame for the best female artist in the world.  Once Mariah started to post on her page, it went way better, thank god Mariah has now 4.322 followers.

If it's not done yet, be a follower on Mariah's Twitter page.

By the way, thank god with all the weirdos running around, Mariah's HBF staff took over a part of the reply function (as stated on Mariah's official site), there's now also a contest, send your favorite song from The Ballads @MariahHBF and win some cool autographed stuffs.
