November 2007 - Heroes of Mariah
VH-1 100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders
The show featured artists who only had one hits and either disappeared or never achieved the same level of success. Minnie Riperton's Lovin' You and Tom Tom Club's Genius of Love were among them. Mariah showed up because her music has been influenced by those musics.

As previously reported, DJ Toomp has worked on Mariah's upcoming record, but SOHH got some more infos and a vid
DJ Toomp Working On Upcoming Mariah Carey Project, "It's Gonna Be A Club Banger"
Hip-Hop super producer DJ Toomp has made a name for himself creating hard-hitting beats for the likes of T.I., Jay-Z and Kanye West. Now he's delving into some smoother sounds. 

SOHH caught up with the Atlanta-based hit-maker yesterday at the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop Music Conference in Atlanta and  got the exclusive insight into his work with R&B diva Mariah Carey. 

"I really haven't heard none of the other songs on Mariah's album but the one I brought is pretty hot," Toomp told SOHH. "It's gonna be a club banger. It's a little different working with Mariah. She usually writes her own stuff and when she goes into the booth there's usually nobody else there but her engineer. But what's crazy is the results are great. She's gone this far working like that so why try to change that?"
Mariah Carey's upcoming untitled album is set for release in the first quarter of 2008.

Dionne Warwick about Mariah
When asked if she has any tips for young singers, Warwick quickly said, “I don’t give advice. I give encouragement.” However, when it comes to naming young talents whom she listens to, she coolly replied, “Well, my ears can only take Mariah Carey, Usher and Brazilian music.”

The accident happened on the set of "You Don't Mess with the Zohan"
Columbia Pictures is commenting on the accident that occurred yesterday on the Universal lot -- the incident happened on the set of the upcoming Adam Sandler movie, "You Don't Mess with the Zohan."

A Columbia Pictures spokesperson released a statement early Monday evening, which read: "This afternoon at approximately 3:45 PM, an accident occurred on the Universal Studios backlot while filming a scene for Columbia Pictures' upcoming film "You Don't Mess with The Zohan." 

"While we do not have a great deal of information to share at this time, we understand that two stuntmen were injured and both have been transported to a local hospital. The production company is cooperating fully with local officials on the scene. Our thoughts right now are with the stuntmen and their families and we hope that each recovers swiftly from their injuries."

The film, about an Israeli special agent who fakes his death in order to move to New York City and become a hairdresser, also stars Rob Schneider, Mariah Carey and Henry Winkler.

Amanda Ghost co-writing with Mariah?
She's hardly known outside the music industry, yet Amanda Ghost is increasingly seen as Britain's most influential songwriter. Sophie Morris talks to a young Londoner who has penned hits for everyone from James Blunt to Beyoncé.
In the summer of 2005, James Blunt's irritatingly catchy ballad, "You're Beautiful", went stratospheric. It topped the charts in Britain, the US and Canada and became the first song by a British artist ever to climb to the top of the Latin American Top 40.

Then word leaked out that the creative hand behind his crooning, forlorn vocals actually belonged to one Amanda Ghost, a British singer-songwriter who was at the start of her own burgeoning performing career when she co-wrote the tune.

It attracted the attention of a host of major artists in the US; that subsequent No 1 record was a duet for Beyoncé and Shakira, "Beautiful Liar", which bagged the top spot in 32 countries.

The requests soon started flooding in. Could she write a single for the latest American Idol winner? No problem. How about a couple of songs for Whitney Houston's comeback album, collaborating with Mariah Carey, and acting as a sort of taste consultant for Liam Howlett on The Prodigy's upcoming release? It's a deal. Ghost has been busy on all of the above in the past 18 months.

She calls Jay-Z  a "really good friend". 
Her latest assignment is to give Beyoncé a country-and-western makeover for her next album. 
A few weeks ago, Ghost was in the studio with Beyoncé in New York.

Mariah is back on fire
Her last album was 2005's biggest-selling - but Mariah Carey tells us Emancipation Of Mimi was just a warm-up for her new effort.

Speaking at the launch of her new M fragrance in LA, she revealed: "I am so happy with the new tracks - there are 22 that we're trying to decide from.
"But the way I like to look at it is the last album was the main course, and the new one is the dessert!"

Mariah added she's set to embark on a worldwide tour.

She said: "We didn't get to Europe on the last tour and I was upset about that. I love England so much! We'll have to make it happen next time."

In the meantime, fans can watch Mimi on the new DVD of last year's Adventures Of Mimi tour.

It's a treat.

Ellen DeGeneres: Mariah Carey Smells Like S'mores 

The "scentsational" Mariah Carey stopped by Ellen Wednesday to talk turkey – and perfume. 

"You smell a little like s'mores," Ellen DeGeneres said, welcoming the divine diva to her show Wednesday. 

"I'm not really a fragrance girl. I don't really like scents," Carey contended as she spritzed her host from head to toe with her new perfume, M by Mariah Carey. "But, the company was like, 'We want this to be a representation of you.' " 

The songstress worked closely with perfumers to arrive at both her signature scent as well as the pretty purple bottle which is topped by – you guessed it – a butterfly. "The marshmallow element you smelled before is the top note and was a subliminal thing – just to give you little campfire memories," she explained of her first-ever fragrance. 

"My signature scent of course, is gin and Marlboros," countered a deadpan DeGeneres. "When you come home [with it on], they're like, 'You've been out. ... No, I have Ellen's perfume on!' " 

Though she'll smell yummy, Carey's hectic schedule will keep her from having a true Thanksgiving this year. "I'm working," she told DeGeneres. "Though I really want to learn how to cook a turkey. It can't be that big of a deal, it just seems like one, to me."

THE ADVENTURES OF MIMI offers Mariah fans a must have all-access exclusive VIP pass to Mariah's most successful tour. Shot in high definition and recorded in digital surround sound, this large scale, sold-out arena production, produced by legendary award winning producer Ken Ehrlich, is a chance for fans to see Mariah belt out power ballads, hip-hop tracks and pop classics with a special guest appearance by Boyz II Men who join Mariah to perform their record-breaking hit duet "One Sweet Day."

Leaks and piracy
A lot of people still don't get why leaks and piracy are wrong, let me quote Jay-Z about the sales decline:
"It's just the way of the world. Our fans are younger, so our fans live on computers. As adults we're not stealing music off the Internet. We'll pay for the convenience of not having to wait for it to download, right? We will go to the store and actually pay for it just so we won't have to deal with that.  Everybody wants a quick fix. But everything is not microwaveable."

Wednesday November 21st. - Mariah Carey
Wednesday one of my favorite guests, 5-time Grammy Award winner, MARIAH CAREY, is stopping by to chat. You never know what she’s going to do when she’s here. (She likes to raid my wardrobe.) What we do know is when Mariah is on, it’s can’t miss television. She’s going to show off her new perfume "M By Mariah." The rumor is that not only does it smell great, if you wear it, it will help you sing in three octaves. Plus, with a little help from Timbaland and Justin Timberlake, DURAN DURAN has a fantastic new album, "Red Carpet Massacre." Get out your thin ties, they will be here Wednesday to perform the CD’s first hit, "Falling Down." Plus, they’re going to perform "Rio," one of their biggest songs ever.

Music to investors' ears
Chris Wright, chairman and 26 per cent stakeholder of music publisher Chrysalis is said to be warming to the idea of a sale of the business, which boasts a roster that includes Gnarls Barkley, The Dixie Chicks and Mariah Carey. Investors will be thrilled as they have long argued that Chrysalis cannot compete with larger rivals such as Warner and EMI. An offer pitched at around £250m should do the trick.

MTV Networks, Ford Models and Elizabeth Arden's 'M by Mariah Carey' Launch First-Ever Virtual Model Search
Campaign Brings Ford Models and M by Mariah Carey Brands to Life In-World While Seeking New Face for MTV's Virtual Hills
In a first for any virtual world, MTV Networks, Elizabeth Arden and Ford Models today announced they are launching a campaign to find the world's first-ever virtual supermodel. The three iconic brands are teaming up to create M by Mariah Carey's "Virtual Ford Model Search" ( to find the new face of MTV's Virtual Hills.

The campaign is designed to appeal to a generation of young, aspiring consumers who take their online persona as seriously as their real-world presence. Taking branded entertainment to new heights, the campaign offers innovative in-world experiences that build strong connections to the M by Mariah Carey fragrance and to Ford Models.

Beginning Monday, viewers can go to to create their own customized avatar, which they'll use on their quest to become the world's first-ever virtual model. Participants will experience opportunities to "meet" in-world with a roster of Ford Models' experts who will provide invaluable beauty and styling tips on everything from fashion, skincare, hair, and makeup -- of which all can apply to the real world. Viewers are then given a virtual bottle of M by Mariah Carey -- complete with a spray animation -- along with a Ford Models portfolio book to carry throughout the virtual world. Ford Models' digital video content containing similar fashion and beauty insights will also be available 24 hours a day for viewing. The campaign was designed in conjunction with MTV's Integrated Marketing Group and Elizabeth Arden's media communications agency, PHD.

The multi-faceted campaign engages Hills viewers across all MTV screens, from on-air to online and in the virtual world. To drive awareness for the campaign, MTV will air :30-second Elizabeth Arden/MTV co-branded spots during several episodes of The Hills beginning Monday, Nov. 19th, pointing viewers to co-branded microsites. The microsites, which will appear on and inside Virtual Hills, will offer viewers directions on how to enter the campaign, profiles on the semifinalists and blog entries from contestants. The sites will also contain links for users to purchase M by Mariah Carey as well as links to Ford Models' Web site.

"The opportunity to partner our M by Mariah Carey fragrance with such world-class brands as Ford Models, MTV and our media agency, PHD, offers a unique chance for us to connect with our target audience on a completely new level," said Ron Rolleston, Executive Vice President of Elizabeth Arden fragrances. "Our consumers are young, fresh and creative, and this campaign offers a more personal way to connect and engage with them in a truly interactive fashion."

"By partnering with MTV and Ford Models, the M by Mariah Carey brand will reach fans everywhere they are through a unique and cutting-edge multiplatform campaign tied to the Hills and built around Mariah's debut fragrance," said Tanya Zvonkin, Vice President/Group Director for PHD. "For the fragrance M by Mariah Carey, there needed to be innovative programming that would build excitement and connection to the brand. This campaign extends beyond the borders of MTV's Virtual Hills to include on-air promos and engaging online content."

"MTV and Ford Models have a proven track-record of creating and supporting stars, so the idea of using this new media platform to create a virtual brand ambassador with a partner like Elizabeth Arden seems like its time has come," said Tim Rosta, Senior Vice President of Integrated Marketing for MTV. "The virtual model search will connect our shared audience to MTV's virtual worlds and build a rich community around beauty, fashion style and youth culture."

At the heart of the campaign is a series of events in early January, in which models will be asked to show off their virtual acting capabilities by posing with the bottle and acting out a commercial for the fragrance. They will also be asked to walk a virtual runway and compete in a virtual dance contest. Representatives from Ford Models, Elizabeth Arden and MTV will conduct the judging.

Three finalists will be chosen by an expert panel on January 14, 2008. The winner -- as determined by viewer votes -- will be announced on-air on January 31, 2008.

The winning avatar becomes Ford Models' first-ever virtual world model, the fresh new face of a marketing campaign for MTV's virtual worlds, and the star of a :30-second Elizabeth Arden/MTV co-branded spot.

Ellen Cancels NYC Tapings
Days after the Writers Guild of America, East released a statement criticizing Ellen DeGeneres for crossing the strike picket line, the TV talk show host has canceled her show tapings in New York City, a source close to the show told Access Hollywood.

Ellen will continue to tape her show in LA and return to New York at a later date, the source told Access.

As previously reported on, Ellen DeGeneres canceled one show, the day the Writers Guild of America strike began. She crossed the picket line the day after her lone cancellation.

The Writers Guild of America, East, reacted with disappointment, after Ellen crossed the picket line to resume taping her show.

In a statement issued to Access Hollywood on Sunday, the WGAE said she would not be welcome in NYC.

“In anticipation of her plans to tape shows in New York City on November 19th and 20th, the Writers Guild of America, East is extremely disappointed to see that Ellen has chosen not to stand with writers during the strike,” a rep for the WGAE said in the statement. “Ellen’s peers who host comedy/variety shows have chosen to support the writers and help them get a fair contract, Ellen has not. On her first show back, Ellen said she loves and supports her writers, but her actions prove otherwise.”

Ellen herself has reacted to the criticism saying she supports her writers, but she also has a duty to her audience.

“I support the writers and hope that they get everything they’re asking for. And I hope it works out soon. In the meantime, people have traveled across the country. They’ve made plans. They’re here. I want to do everything I can to make your trip enjoyable and give you a show,” she said during a show taping.

Reps for “Ellen” could not be reached for comment.

Record producer Mike Lattanzi almost signed young Mariah
Lattanzi kept himself busy for years before a Mariah Carey demo tape fell into his hands. 
Carey was only 16 years old at the time, according to Lattanzi, and she was totally unsigned. 

Lattanzi wanted her to be the first artist he signed to his new label, so he and his partner, Monte Lipman, traveled to Los Angeles to try finding someone to give them the money to record her. 
They wrote a proposal and a business plan, and wore suits and ties to their first meeting with a stock trader whom they figured had money to spare. 

“We must have looked like idiots,” Lattanzi said, laughing at the memory. “The guy just chewed us up.” 
“Why would I give you a hundred grand when I can take a hundred grand and actually make money with it?” the guy asked them. 

Nevertheless, he liked Lattanzi and Lipman, and said he’d like to help them in the future, but the two signed a different artist a short time later and forgot about the whole thing, Lattanzi said. 

Lipman wound up getting a job with a record label and he’s now the president of Universal Records. 
Lattanzi took a different road. From his home studio, he fed record companies with an endless stream of material and artists to sign. 
He worked with artists like Steve Vai, Wyclef Jean, Jewel, Nick Lachey, Jessica Simpson, Smashmouth and Robbie Williams.

And if one day...... some fans on forums could maybe have a bad surprise..... 
Prince makes a song to diss some of his fans
Since a few months, Prince hired a company to search who enfreign his copyrights on the web. Fan sites were requested to remove songs, pictures, trademarks and other stuffs which came from his official site. On messageboards some fans insulted him, Prince reacted in a very original way like only him can do it, he made a song in which he says " The only reason you say my name is to get your fifteen seconds of fame, I don't care what people say, I ain't gonna let it ruin my day", toward the end he sings " I love y'all, but don't mess with me no more".  He even threatens a board member called "Weemolicious" by singing " Look here Weemolicious, you and your boyfriend, lemme tell you somethin' right now, you run up again with words or otherwise, I'mma knock both you punks out"
Heroes note: To listen to the entire song, go on the site Prince setted up for the occasion.
Web Sheriff's statement: "At no time is Prince suing his fans and this is not about freedom of speech, the current issue is one between Prince's record label and three unofficial Web sites and relates to the use of Prince trademarks and photographs, many of which are Prince's copyright."

"M" in Europe, good news, bad news
After a long phone call here's the latest news:
- In Belgium, there's still hope for a release sometime next year (it's not that far), don't stop requesting it at stores by phone and by e-mail (especially Ici Paris XL)
- Germany, the release of the fragrance is still planned for early 2008 or at least somewhere in the first quarter if the request of the public (fans) goes on. 
- Germany and The Netherlands: Please note if you're a resident of one of these countries, don't stop requesting it at your local stores to keep the hype. And if you buy it at an online store in your country, you must know that the sales figures go to the country which exported it and not your country, which means if you stop requesting  it, it can be scrapped.
- Here's the bad news for you guys in France, "M" is apparently postponed in France (maybe even until next year), I'll give you more details about all that probably somewhere next week.
- For the ones who were waiting impatiently for "M", Kinou and I may soon have samples for you, so at least you may have the pleasure to test it.

Boyz II Men about Mariah
Visions of Love, Mariah Carey
This was the very first single she released. It was a song that made people notice her. Her voice and her beauty were so strong and pronounced that when this came out, it made you do a double take. Obviously everyone has periods in their career where they hit a downward slope, it's just that some people have to live through it in the public eye. But you can't hold talent down and when you listened to her last album, The Emancipation of Mimi, you knew Mariah had found her niche again.

Fan hears a lil' part of a new song
Several fans waited outside the Lincoln Center yesterday:
" I saw Mariah outside the Glamour awards!!  and she signed my music box cd and was like i hope you have emancipated and I said of course.  but to make a long story short she said she had to go because she had to play a song for someone. and when she got in the car they blasted a song that we never heard before and I think it was her new song and Rachel said you guys hear that. it sounded amazing.  I couldn't make out lyrics or anything.  but it was upbeat and very good.  they played two different ones.  they are def gonna be #1's.  but it was only a couple seconds.  but that has to mean the song isgonna be on the radio any day.  or she wouldn't of played it in front of us."

Nelly about Mariah At this point in your music career, do you feel like you have peaked as an artist?
Nelly: Um. I don't know, but I don't think I'll sell 10 million records again. I mean in this day in age of downloads, ringtones and all that. Now will I say it will never happen? I won't say that. But to sell 2-3 million records today is like selling 5-6 million in '01 and '02. The last person to sell 10 million records is probably Usher. Had that album came out in 2000 or '01, that sh-- would've sold like 15 million copies. If you look at Mariah Carey's album - phenomenal. She did like six million. Had that been at that time too, she would've sold ten. It's kind of hard these days, but I don't know. I wouldn't say I peaked, but I would say that I've made myself very relevant in whatever I'm doing, whether it's the acting, music or business.

So much better than leaks!!!!!  Fan review of the "Adventures of Mimi" DVD
Carlos had an exclusive screening of The Adventures Of Mimi Tour DVD.
The presentation on the DVD is a class product. Your treated to a CGI rendition of the tour stage that lets you navigate the various different options.
Naturally, you'll want to jump right in and go for the concert itself. Which features the ENTIRE concert. No edit verses, no cut songs - this is the full show as those thousands of fans experienced it. So that's nineteen Mariah hits. 
The full setlist - 
1 - Opening Video
2 - It's Like That
3 - Heartbreaker (Remix/Album version)
4 - Dream Lover (Album version/Remix)
5 - My All (Album version/Remix)
6 - Shake It Off
7 - Vision Of Love
8 - Fly Like A Bird
9 - I'll Be There (with Trey Lorenz)
10 - Fantasy (ODB Remix)
11 - Don't Forget About Us
12 - Always Be My Baby
13 - Honey
14 - I Wish You Knew
15 - Can't Let Go
16 - One Sweet Day (with Boys II Men)
17 - Hero
18 - Make It Happen
19 - We Belong Together
20 - Butterfly Reprise

This is the full experience - you even get the exchanges with the crowd, including a touching description of why Mariah has to sing 'Hero' even if it isn't her favourite song or the moment when one lucky fan gets to come on stage for a hug. It's a blessed relief to enjoy the show as it was, not cut to pieces or stuffed with taped features that disrupt the flow of the concert.

The set list is safe but solid. It's all the hits that stormed the charts. Commercial, popular and what keeps the crowd cheering from start to finish. Sure, some of the album cuts would have been nice. But the tour was more a celebration of one of the greatest music comebacks in history. Mariah is pulling out the weapons that made her #1 and when times got tough, brought her back there. She knows it too. I was genuinely surprised by her improved stage presence. She's come a lot further from her 2003 days. She now seems more relaxed and happy on stage. She's still posing like a killer catwalk model of course - and looking fantastic while doing it. But she's absolutely radiant on stage, for the first time really loving being up on that stage performing for the audience.

Of course that audience came for 'The Voice' as will anyone watching at home. Fair play - these vocals (for my money anyway) are not dubbed. These are stripped right from the concert. They aren't her best vocals, they aren't her worst. They are more raw, more passionate and a little looser. Best example is her rendition of 'Vision Of Love'. To me, this record always sounds as fresh as the day it was first released. The word timeless dosent do this classic justice. But Mariah experiments with her rendition. Its not entirely successful and demonstrates her weaker moments towards the climax but it shows her willing to shake things up for a more interesting listen.

Speaking of interesting, the camera have really tried to visually keep things interesting on the eye not just the ear. Filmed concerts can get quite boring without some good visuals to hold the attention. There are some excellent sweeps across both stages that take in the scope of the venue. Some nice cinematic ones too with 'Fly Like A Bird' as well, where the camera starts on the floor of the crowd, moves forward and upwards at the stage to Mariah and the army of gospel singers. Some missed opportunities on stuff like 'Heartbreaker' and 'Honey' I felt. When you've got a swarm of dancers coming down some elegant stairs, you want to see it and not crowd clips. Credit to them, they made it fun to watch and got as many varied camera angles as possible.

There's more than just the concert of course - we have extras! One of the more interesting ones is the Juke Box. Basically you have 12 credits and can create your own set list. You decide what order the songs will play in. Quite a novel feature and one I hadn't seen before. All the concerts skids are included on 'Lovers & Haters' for some comedy value. There's the karaoke on six tracks, that you can have with or without Mariah singing. The Behind The Scenes feature is about ten minutes long, you get some interviews with the Tatums and Rachel, some Michael as well as Mariah herself on the tour bus. Weirdly, Trey's name is also spelt wrong - Tre? - more than once.

The better features are on the second disc. The documentary is brilliant, you actually get some fresh information that aren't just the usual recycled sound bites. The set designs are discussed, proposed/rejected concepts, the whole thought process and experience of performing on the second stage, meeting Rachel and all the dancers, the backing singers (who are very playful in their interviews), rehearsals and bloopers on stage including her near costume malfunction.

There is a discussion on the set list for the concert. This is very insightful. Randy Jackson discussed 'Vanishing', what song Mariah likes to open the show with, how she experiments with merging certain remixed songs ('Heartbreaker', 'My All' and 'Dreamlover'). This part is brilliant - you hear Mariah discuss the history of the mixes. creatively, and she mentions she does want to go back to Australia. Good news for all loyal fans down under.

She also touches on celebrities in the audience, the tragic passing of ODB (rest in peace), some of the moments from other tours (fighting Bianca on the Rainbow tour, etc), plus the experience of being on stage with Trey, Boys II Men, Da Brat and Jay Z across the various shows. Her discussion on 'Hero' is very, very interesting. She touches on the need to perform it. She makes it clear its not her favourite (quote on quote "corny") but knows that its helped her. Mostly its helped her fans and many people are coming to hear just that song for the power of its message. She also discusses 'Make It Happen' returning to the set list through fan popularity and the thrill of performing 'We Belong Together' at the finale since it changed her career and is many couples anthem. Cute moment when she discusses Patti LaBell and the 'Butterfly Outro' - she wants to leave the stage singing like she does to the song that most sums her up.

I cannot stress how great this documentary is. Its worth the price of the DVD alone. Mariah discusses pretty much all the songs she performs on the show. I find the creative process behind why what songs were chosen and what it feels like to perform those songs live. If you do, this 60 minutes of footage will have you enthralled. Its about the music and its for the fans. Speaking of which, the fan messages near the end are cute. I love the girl who calls Mariah an angel from above, who helped her get through losing her father. Bless her.

If I need to see this anymore, then will cap it - we get to see Jacks's VIP crib

Mariah sounded okay on OSD to me....Boys II Men, a bit off or muffled. But it was okay. I liked the part near the end where it looked like Mariah was about to cry. In the crowd, there's a cut to one poor guy in tears and (oddly) talking on his phone! 

The rollercoaster intro is in there. Full screen and when it hits the end of the tracks, then it goes to the venue and Mariah arriving on stage. 

She is interacting with the crowd loads and makes jokes. She notes the Australian fans when she's on the second stage. Giggles that no one knows Cant Let Go so she'll stop singing, then continues when she hears everyone singing back. Its all there. That was one of my fave things - they kept her speaking to the crowd all the way through. 
A big thanks to Carlos for his review

Mariah at Bette Middler's Halloween party?
Across the country, Bette Midler hosted her usual boo-bender in the Big Apple, with the proceeds from partiers like Donald Trump’s “Pageant Place” princesses and Mariah Carey going toward her New York Restoration Project.
“Well you know it's a party, it's a benefit, but it’s really a party,” Midler told FOX. “And the thing that separates us from the other organizations that do this kind of thing is that we only sell trees ... it's a lot of fun ... we put the trees in the ground and we also put a piece of money aside so the trees will be taken care of."

Good news, "M" helps sales growth
Elizabeth Arden Inc. delivered sales growth of nearly 7 percent in the first quarter, and inked a licensing deal with Rocawear, the clothing label founded by hip-hop mogul Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter.

Carter sold the Rocawear brand to Iconix Brand Group Inc. in April, but remains involved in the business, and is expected to be the guiding force in the fragrance creation, said Arden’s president and chief executive officer E. Scott Beattie during the firm’s earnings call Friday.

The beauty firm's earnings went from red to black in the first quarter ended Sept. 30, compared to a year-ago loss. The company earned $350,000, or a penny a diluted share, compared to a loss of $1.3 million, or 5 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. Excluding charges related to restructuring of Arden’s European operations, net earnings were $1.1 million. Sales gained 6.7 percent to $271.8 million, from $254.8 million a year ago, driven by the introduction of the M by Mariah Carey fragrance this fall and the growth of the Elizabeth Arden brand in international markets. Beattie noted that international sales account for 65 percent of the Elizabeth Arden brand's business.

E. Scott Beattie, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Elizabeth Arden Inc, commented, "We are pleased with our first quarter results, which were led largely by the strength of our international business. Net sales of our international business grew by 18% this quarter and 12% in constant currencies. Specifically, revenues in China and in emerging markets increased by 75% and 40%, respectively. 
We also delivered 15% sales growth and significant improvement in profitability in our European operations. These results were in part due to the strong performance of the Elizabeth Arden brand in international markets. With nearly 65% of the total sales of Elizabeth Arden-branded products sold internationally, we expect the positive momentum behind the brand to continue due to strong global economic growth." 
"In North America, our U.S. mass business was up 14%, on top of strong comparable growth last year, and our U.S. Department Stores business declined by 25%, driven by the timing of launches and changes in the retail calendar. 

Much of this decrease is expected to be made up in the second quarter with the launch of PREVAGE Night Cream and the performance of the M by Mariah Carey and Britney Spears believe fragrances. It is important to note that the results in the first quarter for our U.S. Department Stores business were essentially on plan."

Heroes comment: I was a lil' confused with this after the October 30 news, I asked a financial specialist what was the difference between this news and the one from 3 days ago.  In fact, Elizabeth Arden anounces the grown of the sales in their first quarter (fical year) and expected sales partially due to "M" and international markets.  The first article was about a financial group which warned their clients about investing in EA shares as the trend of celebrity fragrances (including "M") was over, in comparison to a few years ago when few celebrities had a fragrance.  Hope it's clear, anyway I'm not a "finance" guy and will never be, the only thing that counts is Mariah is happy and proud of her creation

Fact or Fiction! 
Mariah Carey's Perfume and Sean "Diddy" Combs' vodka deal is the first wave of a new trend in celebrity endorsements coming from musicians.
Matt Reno: Fact. I agree that this is far from a first wave, but I also think that this will become an ever increasing trend. Getting filthy rich off music alone is not as easy as it used to be, so musicians will need to find new ways to make millions. Of course, sometimes it's not just about the money. John Mellencamp's justified lack of faith in commercial radio led him to endorse trucks just to get his new song heard, and it worked. As long as musicians are worshipped by their fans, their names will help sell products.
Score : 4 for 5

"Blackout" is no "Emancipation of Mimi," 
Contrasting the images in the tabloids, Britney Spears displays herself as a woman focused on romance, whether it be one night stands or one night stands that last for two weekends. It's frothy, good natured, sexy and superficial. As recovery-from-meltdown albums go, "Blackout" is no "Emancipation of Mimi," but then again Miss Spears has never appeared to have the artistic aspirations of Mariah Carey and Miss Carey has never sounded like she craved sex and a party scene the way Spears does here.

Da Brat Da Busted
Rapper and Mariah Carey BFF Da Brat was arrested outside of Atlanta, after allegedly busting a waitress in the face with a bottle of rum at Jermaine Dupri's Studio 72 nightclub around 1:15 AM today.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Brat (real name: Shawntae Harris) got into an altercation with the waitress after she bumped into the rapper. The two began pushing and shoving each other until she walked away. That's when Brat allegedly assaulted her with a bottle. 

The "Celebrity Fit Club" star is currently in custody and has been charged with felony aggravated assault. She'll be arraigned in the next 72 hours. Da Brat was previously arrested in 2000 for allegedly pistol whipping a woman in an Atlanta nightclub -- she pleaded guilty and was put on probation.
