Many thanks to Andrew who emailed me to let us know that Rock FM told him they DO have a club mix of Through The Rain but are saving it for "Club Rock" on Saturday night. Please email them asking them to play it and this should ensure that a remix of Through The Rain is played by them Saturday night. You can text from 6pm onwards on 07781484974. Email the "Club Rock" at clubrock@rockfm.co.uk, Email a couple of the DJs at mark.kay@rockfm.co.uk and rick@rockfm.co.uk. The video for Through The Rain can be seen once in a while on VH1 but the music video selection channel Magic added it to their playlist on Monday. Tuesday morning I saw the video played 6 times in just 90 minutes! During the same time the channel's current most requested video was played only 3 times. To ensure the video maintains it's popularity please call 0906 753 6000. The video is selection number 740.

Mariah doesn't think that it's cool when fans come to her house. (uninvited.) She was talking about that at the meet and greet, and I forgot to mention it in my review. What do you all think about it. I was glad when she was talking about it, b/c she is so giving of herself, and a lot of fans take advantage of her. She should be able to sit at home, without some "lamb" beating on her front door.

Carey-ing on
Mariah Carey hasn't let the highs and lows of fame get her down. The pop princess wowed a couple of hundred of her biggest fans Tuesday night with an intimate party to celebrate her new Island Def Jam release, "Charmbracelet." The 32-year-old chanteuse is hoping the sultry new album will put her back on top after a recent rocky spell. "It expresses a kind of spirituality," she told us of her new music. "A lot of the things I've been through, other people, especially women, have also gone through, so I think they can identify with it. But I get feedback from the fans, and I also draw a lot of inspiration from others." Carey mingled with fans during cocktails at the Rose Center for Earth and Space before she played host to an exclusive preview of the album. Sipping from a glass of red wine and looking stunning in a low-cut black velvet dress, she scotched rumors in other newspapers that she was looking to sell her spacious Tribeca home. "It's my first solo apartment, I'm very happy there. It's not for sale." It might not be solo for long, however. She added with a twinkle in her eye: "But I am looking for the right guy."

Mariah Carey, Anastasia, Holly Valance and Will Young will be performing live on BBC1 as part of this year's Children In Need. The annual TV event, hosted by Terry Wogan and Gaby Roslin, takes place on Friday November 15. Highlights include the cast of EastEnders performing Michael Jackson's Thriller and Claire Sweeney as Lady Marmalade. The News and Weather teams will perform The Rocky Horror Show, while artists including Darren Day, Eamonn Holmes and Nadia Wadia pay tribute to Elvis Presley. Pop Idol winner Will Young is recording this year's charity single, the double A-side You And I/Don't Let Me Down, and will also open the show with a live rendition in the studio. There will also be BBC Children In Need concerts around the country, with acts and venues to be announced. Last year, BBC Children In Need raised £25m and the charity hopes to raise even more this year. Throughout the night, there will be regular updates from around the country and appeal films, enabling viewers to see how the money is being spent and why it is important to raise even more this year.

Carson Says Mariah's A 'Lunatic' To Take On Eminem
MTV's Total Request Live today talked a bit about the Mariah Carey 'Charmbracelet' track 'Clown', which many are saying is a diss towards Eminem. John Norris reports Carey says this is in fact about any guy who talks a big game when, in fact, when you get beneath the tough outside, he is kind of a softy underneath. She says, no it is not necessarily about anyone. Carson said, "She's a lunatic to take on Eminem. Keep it to yourself." Norris added, "Not a good idea."

Mariah: Who cares about Eminem?
Mariah Carey gets even with Eminem on her new album, "Charmbracelet." Eminem had ripped her in Rolling Stone magazine in June. After noting the two had dated briefly, the rapper said, "On the whole personal level, I'm not really feeling it. I just don't like her as a person. I learned a lesson from it: Don't believe the hype . . . She doesn't really have it all together." In the song "Clown," played Tuesday night at her listening party at the Hayden Planetarium, Mariah sings: "You should have never intimated we were lovers. I gotta break it to you delicately - who's gonna love you when it's over? Who's gonna care?" Did Carey write the lyrics? "I wrote all the songs except for one or two," she said slyly. Accompanied by Def Jam head Lyor Cohen, Carey was dressed to kill in a skin-tight black minidress slit to her navel and knee-high black boots. Asked if she was dating, Mariah replied, "I'm not with anyone right now - got someone?" She also denied rumors that her entourage of hair and makeup artists, assistants and bodyguards includes a food taster who wipes down her soda cans with disinfectant before opening. "Please!" she scoffed. "I am a singer so I am careful with germs, but it's not like I care that much. I open my can of Coke like a regular person and pop in a straw."

Heroes comment: This Coke thing, oh Mariah you're too funny .  Oh by the way, Eminem should have sang:
"I'm sorry Mariah, I never meant to hurt yououou"

Exclusive TTR remix interview
RPN has had the great pleasure of interviewing the Dj's behind Full Intention
Q1 Who is Full Intention, and who have you worked with in the past?
Full Intention are two UK Producers and Remixers - Michael Gray & Jon Pearn. In the past we have remixed several artists including Whitney Houston, Brandy,  Jamiroquai, Jennifer Lopez, Another Level and Duke.
Q2 What is your honest opinion of Mariah? How did you feel when you were asked to do a remix for her single?
Mariah is an extremely talented vocalist and this is always very important for us when deciding which mixes we should take on. It was more challenging and exciting to do because it was originally a ballad.
Q3 What do you think of the Remix?
We're very happy with the way it turned out. We were DJ'ing in Bournemouth (England) last Saturday and it went down well. We have also done (under another name) an R&B mix, we don't know if that is getting released.
Q4 What do you think of her original version?
The original version is really a Ballad so although we loved the song and Mariah's vocal performance, Michael felt that it needed some extra Backing vocals to lift the chorus for a Dance remix. We used two of our artists Shena and Xavier.
Q5 Who else would you like to work in the future?
Luther Vandross, George Benson Chaka Khan, the list goes on !
Source: Ashes, http://mariahconnection.com by e-mail.

Le RPN a eu le grand plaisir d'interviewer les DJs de Full Intention.
Q1 Qui sont Full Intention, et avec qui avez-vous travaillé dans le passé?
Full Intention sont deux producteurs et remixeurs Britanniques - Michael Gray et Jon Pearn.  Dans le passé nous avons remixé plusieurs artistes dont Whitney Houston, Brandy,  Jamiroquai, Jennifer Lopez, Another Level et Duke.
Q2 Quelle est votre réelle opinion à propos de Mariah?  Qu'avez-vous ressenti quand on vous a demandé de faire un remix pour son single?
Mariah est une chanteuse extrêmement talentueuse et c'est toujours important pour nous quand nous décidons quel remixes nous devrions choisir.  C'était plus un défi excitant de le faire parce que c'était originellement une ballade.
Q3 Que pensez-vous du remix?
Nous sommes très heureux du résultat obtenu.  Nous avons fait le remix à Bournemouth (Angleterre) samedi dernier et tout s'est bien passé.  Nous avons aussi fait (sous un autre nom) un remix RnB, mais nous ne savons pas s'il sortira.
Q4 Que pensez-vous de la version originale?
La version originale est une pure ballade, donc...  pourtant nous avons quand même aimé la chanson et la performance vocale de Mariah, Michael sentait qu'il fallait rajouter des choeurs afin d'intensifier le refrain pour un remix dance.  Nous avons utilisé deux de nos artistes, Shena et Xavier.
Q5 Avec qui d'autre aimeriez-vous travailler dans le futur?
Luther Vandross, George Benson, Chaka Khan, et la liste continue !

RPN heeft het grote plezier gehad de DJ's van Full Intention te interviewen.
V1 Wie is Full Intention, en met wie heb je in het verleden gewerkt?
Full intention zijn twee UK Producers en Remixers - Michael Gray & Jon Pearn. In het verleden hebben we verscheidene artiesten, waaronder Whitney Houston, Brandy, Jamiroquai, Jennifer Lopez, Another Level en Duke geremixed.
V2 Wat is uw eerlijke mening over Mariah ? Hoe voelde het om gevraagd te worden voor de remix van haar single?
Mariah is een extreem getalenteerde zangeres en dit is altijd zeer belangrijk voor ons wanneer we beslissen welke mixes we zullen aanvaarden.  Het was uitdagender en boeiender te doen omdat het origineel een ballade was.
V3 Wat denk je over de Remix?
We zijn zeer blij met de manier waarop het uitdraaide.  Vorige zaterdag waren we in Bournemouth (Engeland) aan het DJ'ing and het ging heel goed.  We hebben ook (onder een andere naam) een RnB mix gedaan, maar we weten niet indien deze versie zal uitgebracht worden. 
V4 Wat denk je over de originele versie?
De originele versie is een echte Ballade, niettemin hielden we van het lied en Mariah's vocale prestatie. Michael vond dat het enige achtergrondstemmen nodig had om het tot een Dance remix te verheffen. Wij gebruikten twee van onze artiesten : Shena en Xavier.
V5 Met wie zou je in de toekomst willen werken?
Luther Vandross, George Benson Chaka Khan, de lijst gaat voort !

Mariah Carey Previews Tracks At Flyte Tyme Studios
The Star Tribune reports Mariah Carey gave an exclusive lunchtime CD-listening party on Tuesday at Flyte Tyme Studios. Their insider reports that a few bigwigs from Sam Goody and Best Buy got to hear four songs from Carey's 'Charmbracelet', due December 10. Rapper Da Brat was there to act as emcee, sorta. Carey, who looked diva-liciously casual in pigtails, leather boots with six-inch heels and a sweater zipped down to there, didn't let on much about the CD except that she and *NSYNC star Justin Timberlake do a duet. She didn't explain why she used only two of the five songs that she'd recorded with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. But they were nice enough to host the party anyway.

Mariah's sandwich pulled from EBay!
Singer Mariah Carey's local lunch being auctioned on eBay this week caused the online auction house a bout of indigestion Thursday. Around 1 p.m., the turkey sandwich and garnish nibbled on by the pop star while at radio station Q100 this week suddenly disappeared from the Web site. The bid was up to $751. In an e-mail to Q100 jokester Jeff Dauler, Web site officials explained that the foodstuff "does not appear to be consistent with eBay guidelines. . . . All food and related products sold on eBay should be packaged or sealed to ensure that the buyer can identify evidence of possible tampering." 
Dauler tells Buzz he intends to relist the item, because it was clearly explained in his description that the sandwich was being sold solely as a celeb souvenir and could not be consumed. Meanwhile, Mariah's carry-out is becoming a celeb itself. MSNBC gossip Jeanette Walls (clearly a Buzz reader) has now begun writing about the auction as well.
Source: Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Neil from MariahDownunder.com
Heroes comment: OMG, $751US for a sandwich  who is insane, the guy who sells it or the one who buys it?  But I must admit that if I was next to Mariah and that she leave her sandwich on a table 'cause she doesn't want it anymore, I would take it and freeze it. 
Posted on October the 18th.
Charmbracelets have always had a personal and sentimental significance for me. Charms are like pieces of yourself that you pass on to other people...items that tell your story, and that can be shared...like a song. The bracelet represents the foundation of this album, a body of work that encompasses many feelings.

Mariah's sandwich
Here's what we read on MSNBC's site:
In the Scoop's ongoing efforts to bring readers news of sales of worthless celeb items: Q100 radio in Atlanta is auctioning off a turkey sandwich that was partially eaten by Mariah Carey. "The winning bidder will receive the sandwich, salad, pickle, and garnish in a handy Styrofoam deli box. In addition, the winning bidder will also receive a plastic knife used by one of Ms. Carey's handlers to lift the bread, allowing an inspection of the luncheon meat inside," notes the seller. "This sandwich WAS NOT refrigerated for 24 hours after Ms. Carey left the studio, and should not be considered safe to eat. This sandwich is a collectors item, for the true music or Mariah memorabilia collector." Bidding on Wednesday topped $200.

And when that was finished the host said CA was sexy, but Mariah sexier.

Jay-Z, Timberlake, Cam'ron Contribute To Mariah Carey LP
Mariah Carey has been Justified.
Justin Timberlake has joined Jay-Z and Cam'ron on the list of artists lending a hand as Carey prepares her new album. Timberlake added verses and harmonies to Carey's mid-tempo "Yours" last week, and while it's still pending the heartbreaker's approval, the song's seasoned producers already smell a hit. "If I were to compare it to something we have done with her in the past, it would be 'Thank God I Found You,' but I think 'Yours' blows it away," said Jimmy Jam, who produced the track with partner Terry Lewis. "It is probably one of the best hooks [ever]. I have a 6-year-old, and the first time he heard it, the third time the hook came around, he already knew it." Carey has already approved a version of 'Yours' without Timberlake for her as-yet-untitled album, due December 10, but she's flying to Jam and Lewis' Minneapolis studio on Tuesday (October 15) to hear the just-mixed duet and decide if it's better. Jam is convinced she will. "At the end she did a series of ad libs, and he totally did them exactly with her but an octave below her," he explained. "They were kind of intricate, ... but he totally matched everything. He's mega-talented, and to have them both on the same track is special." Jam and Lewis are among an impressive list of producers who have recorded Carey for her follow-up to the disastrous "Glitter" soundtrack. Others include Jermaine Dupri on a track called "The One," Dre and Vidal (Michael Jackson), Damizza (Nate Dogg), DJ Quik, Irv Gotti, and 7 Aurelius. Just Blaze (Nelly) produced a track called "You Got Me" that features Jay-Z and Freeway, as well as a cover of Cam'ron's "Oh Boy" featuring Cam. The album will be the first on Carey's own MonarC Music imprint. Jam and Lewis, who have collaborated with Carey for years, will likely have three tracks on the new album: "Yours," the tentatively titled "Wedding Song," which Carey rescued and penned lyrics for long after Jam and Lewis forgot about it, and the first single, "Through the Rain". "I think 'Through the Rain' is a great way to start the record, because it is emotional and it kind of speaks directly to the questions people might have about the last year of her life," Jam said. "It's a good idea to get that out of the way and move on to happy, less emotional songs." And there are plenty of upbeat Carey songs to move on to. "She's happy," Jam said. "She loves doing music and recording it. I thought Mariah was very focused and intense, as she usually is, but also at the same time much more relaxed." At the video set for 'Through the Rain' late last month, Carey promised an album much different than "Through the Rain." "There are records on the album that are definitely going to be perceived as [sentimental]," she said. "There are a lot of lyrics that are very honest and direct and about me and just about my life as a human being. ... And then there are records that are really fun, like escapism for me. It's not like I'm going to suddenly write this woeful album. 'Oh misery.' No! I choose to turn those things into positives 'cause that's how I get through life." In other Carey and Timberlake news, the two will be sharing the stage later this month along with Ja Rule, India.Arie, Jill Scott, Eric Clapton, Elton John and others. They will be honoring Stevie Wonder at BET's eighth annual Walk of Fame induction ceremony, which is taping October 19 in Washington, D.C., and airing October 29. Jamie Foxx is hosting the event, which has recognized Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Boyz II Men in past years.

Mariah's pounds 3m Paris hideaway
MARIAH Carey has spent $3.1million on a new home so she can escape the pressures of fame. Friends of the 33-year-old star confirmed she has secured a five-bedroom apartment near the centre of Paris. A source said: "She is going to live there when she is in Europe promoting her new album, which is expected to be out in December. "She has been looking at buying a new property for a long time now and this is the perfect place." But the troubled singer, who has had massive hits with Dreamlover and Hero, hasn't even visited the plush flat. The source added: "She had one of her staff go and check it out. "But when she saw photos of it and got a detailed report she didn' t hesitate to buy it. "One of the big factors is that the press are always on her back in America and she wants to get away from that for a while." 
Source: Paul Martin, The Mirror, 10-09-2002, page 18. Stephy from MariahsWeb.com.

Petit résumé
Selon un article paru dans The Mirror, Mariah aurait acheté un appartement près du centre de Paris.  Cela lui permettrait de faciliter ses déplacements pour les promotions à travers l'Europe et aussi d'échapper à la presse Américaine.

Kleine samenvatting
Volgens een artikel van The Mirror, zou Mariah een appartement nabij het centrum van Parijs gekocht hebben.  Dat zou haar verplaatsingen gemakkelijker maken wanneer ze door Europa reist voor haar promotie en ook de Americaanse pers vermijden.

Bon Jovi Surprise Carson, Recreating Mariah Moment
Jon Bon Jovi and Ritchie Sambora stopped by MTV's Total Request Live on Friday in a big surprise. Carson Daly, who was hosting, joked, "Bon Jovi just stopped by, apparently unannounced too. Let me tell ya, I was on my way to No. 2. Let me say I hope everything is okay with you two because the last artist to surprise me on this show was Mariah, and we know what happened with her." The two laughed and Carson added, "There is no ice cream in sight." Then Jon started taking off his shirt to attempt to re-create the scene. We'll probably find out from the TRL Diary that their visit caused chaos, since they had promo'd Madonna's phone in all week, and Bon Jovi coming by to shamelessly plug their new album, after Jon had already been on a few days ago, probably upset some of the show's staff.

Here's what we read on abstracts.net:
Globe magazine reports Mariah Carey has been fretting to pals that the two sisters kidnapped by Tommy Mottola's wife Thalia could have been her or her family. A pal confided, "Mariah says it makes her blood run cold to know that she or her family could easily have been targetted by kidnappers during the years she was married to Tommy. She always thought he was being paranoid and macho by having a lot of armed guards around. She's now saying Tommy was right to have been so protective of her, but most of all, Mariah wants a happy ending for him, Thalia and her sisters."

First report of the Boston Meet and Greet
Well, what a night. Unbelievable. Okay, I'll go from the top. I got there around 7:45, there was already a pretty big line, much more than 25 other people and guest. Probably about 100. So we get in, metal detectors, you absolutely under no circumstances can bring a camera in, so save yourself the effort. Okay, so we got in after about an hour of waiting in line, and we go into this really intimate club/room, colored lights, pictures of MC everywhere (through the rain photo) and theres little postcards on every table that have the TTR photo, and say the following "the strength of her lyrics, the emotion of her voice, a new beginning." theres chips and salsa and stuff of that nature. So, we wait around, I recognize Mariah's entourage, Chris, Louise, and her bodyguards. So about two hours have passed, Mariah finally got in at about, I wanna say 11:30. So she walks through the line of us, were all screaming, and she sits down to do local news interviews for about 10 minutes. Then....the best part...Jerry Blair comes on and says...okay...were gonna play 6 tracks of Mariah's new cd...(unbelievable by the way) I'll get to that later. and then Jerry says, and then each and every one of you will get a picture. Mariah took a picture with everyone there!!! And some people even got two pics, including me. It's a polaroid cam so it's instant. How awesome. she even sat and talked with one fan, it was really touching. She brought her aside away from everything and talked for awhile with her and at the end gave her a hug. Really nice. So anyway, she was signing autographs left and right. So after all the pics, she continued to sign autographs. Oh yeah, along with your pic, you get an autographed pic of the TTR photo. So let's get to the music. Don't hate me because I didn't get all of the names, and the ones I did get, might not even be right, the sound was so loud that it was hard to hear the words, and they didn't really announce every title, and even when they did it was hard to hear, so I did my best for you guys. First they played TTR, everyone clapped and some people sang along, it was really nice. first new track, "Oh Boy." sung to that song...boy...oh boy...sampled over that...really cool. then they played the jd track might be called "Finally Found Someone." really cool uptempo r&b, unbelievable vocals. Then they played kind of a latin style ballad, might have been called "I Only Wanted." Then they played a cool hip hop tune, might have been called "Cloudy" something to do with clouds. And the last one they played was My Saving Grace. My Saving Grace was beautiful... You guys will love it. Mariah had her hair like the CTTA video, and wore a black dress... She looked stunning as always. She was so kind, signed everything for everyone, it truly will be a night to remember, i'm sorry it's so scattered, I hope this helps. There's probably a lot I'm forgetting, but I pretty much got the basics. I'm going to bed... Have a good night... I did!

Luis Miguel won't talk about Mariah 
Luis Miguel arrived in Spain to promote his new album, Mis Boleros Favoritos. Yesterday, hundreds of journalists filled a room all with the same question: "What really happened with Mariah Carey?" and he answered: "I try to forget her...". "We have seen you in some pictures with an ex-girlfriend"... and Luis: "Everything is going well..." Besides that, in the same afternoon, a program on TV called Sabor A Ti showed more images of the interview he gave. When asked about Mariah again, he answered: "I don't know what to say, the midia got in charge of giving various reasons of what happened".

Yasmine: The popdiva is back. The day before yesterday, Mariah recorded the videoclip for her new single, Through The Rain, in a church in New York. The single is forerunner of the new CD.
Mariah: The song itself is just kind of a hopefull message, about people going through tough times and having faith and believing that they can get through them and that's all you need to do. So that's not something that I haven't written about before.
Yasmine: She still sings about the same things, but as a person she has changed.
Mariah: Basically what I did is stopped being everybody's caretaker. I didn't really stop, I still am everybody else's caretaker pretty much. But I mean I also learned that you have to be your own caretaker too.
Yasmine: The past year has been really tough for the popdiva, she was dropped by her recordlabel en she lost her father. It took her quite some time to get through it. But now she feels reborn.
Mariah: You know it's nice, starting fresh with my life. A new label, a new state of mind in terms of like my work. It's still strong and still the same, but it also includes, you know, taking care of myself.
Yasmine: We keep an eye on her, the new Carey album will be released on 10 December.

De Rode Loper
(datgene wat Mariah zegt, zijn in het Nederlands de ondertitelingen, voor het engels heb ik letterlijk opgeschreven wat Mariah zegt)
Yasmine: De popdiva is terug van weggeweest. Eergisteren nam Mariah in een kerk in New York de clip op voor haar nieuwe single Through The Rain, voorbode van een nieuw album.
Mariah: Het nummer is eerder een boodschap. Het gaat over mensen die 'n moeilijke periode doormaken, maar die erin geloven en er doorheen geraken. Die houding moet je altijd aannemen. Het is iets waar ik al vaker over geschreven heb.
Yasmine: Als een doorwinterd predikante stond Carey de pers te woord, ze zingt nog wel over het zelfde maar is zelf wel veranderd.
Mariah: Ik ben ermee gestopt voortdurend andermans toeverlaat te spelen. Niet helemaal natuurlijk, maar toch. Ik heb geleerd eindelijk ook eens aan mezelf te denken.
Yasmine: Het voorbije jaar was geen lachertje voor de popdiva, ze werd door haar platenfirma gedumpt en verloor haar vader. Het kostte haar aardig wat tijd om uit de put te klauteren. Maar nu voelt ze zich herboren.
Mariah: Weet je, ik heb eindelijk m'n evenwicht gevonden. Mijn leven neemt een nieuwe start. Ik heb een nieuw label, ik bekijk m'n werk anders ... Het eist me nog steeds op, maar ik zorg nu ook goed voor mezelf.
Yasmine: We houden ze in de gaten, het nieuwe album van Carey komt uit op 10 december.

Mariah Carey's new video completed
The video that will accompany "Through the Rain," Mariah Carey's new single, is complete.  The shooting, which took place in New York City, lasted two days and was directed by director Dave Meyers. The story is pretty much based on the life of the singer's parents: a mixed couple that in the Sixties is forced to separate and tries to get back together. Who already heard the song talks about a comeback to the atmosphere of Carey's first album. In the meantime, it has been known that another song which will for sure appear in the new still untitled CD to arrive in stores on December 10 is called "My Saving Grace."

Mariah Carey Gets Back on Track 
New York - A year ago, Mariah Carey's career had pretty much derailed, with disappointing results for her latest movie and album and a stint in the hospital for an emotional and physical breakdown. But she said her life is back on track now and that she is starting fresh. While her work ethic is still strong, she said, she's taking better care of herself. "If you put the whole celebrity and music business and whatever other projects you are involved in first before the human being, that's when anybody will crash physically, your body cannot go on one hour of sleep for two months," she said. "It doesn't work. And no matter how tough you think you are at a certain point, you just have to stop." In addition to a new record deal, she has a new album due out in December. She said her new album isn't exactly autobiographical but that her emotional breakdown last year makes the words in her new project feel a little closer to home for her. She describes the single "Through The Rain" as "a hopeful message about people going through tough times and having faith and believing that they can get through them." "With this particular song, it kind of has a certain realness to it that is a little deeper than maybe in the past," she said. The album is due out in December: the tenth, to be exact. There's no title for it yet.

Mariah wants a buyer for her downtown pad 
By Braden Keil

Is Mariah Carey selling her pricey downtown condo? Real estate sources say the songbird is preparing to unload her triplex penthouse perch at TriBeCa's Franklin Tower. The singer paid more than $9 million for the four-bedroom, 4.5-bath penthouse in the 17-story building, built in 1931 as the Corn Exchange Bank and redeveloped into condos two years ago. She took the top three floors in 1999 after a lengthy search for housing, which included a well-documented co-op board rejection by for Barbra Streisand's penthouse on the Upper West Side. Carey then hired interior designer Mario Buatta to wrap the triplex in chintz. (Her bedroom is "tastefully"done in lavender, pink and apricot.) While Carey's people deny she's pulling up her stakes, she's invited a few brokers to take a look around. "Several brokers have been in to take a look," says one insider. "She's asked them what they thought her place is worth." Maybe she's just curious. Just below Mariah's apartment is a much smaller, 5,000-square-foot condo going for $5.25 million. The building was one of the first to offer uptown amenities below Houston Street, including a doorman, a full-time concierge and porters. Weeks after being rejected by Streisand's co-op board in 1999 - after having waited six months in limbo to learn her fate - Carey decided to go the condo route by pairing two Franklin Tower apartments for a total of $9 million. The colorful showplace, which features a 38-foot-long bathroom and a media room with overstuffed couches, has extraordinary views of the Hudson, Midtown and, unfortunately, Ground Zero. Carey's neighbors include freckle-faced mannequin Maggie Rizer, who bought her 1,895-square-foot, two-bedroom apartment in 2000 for $1.6 million. W fashion editor Lauren duPont bought a similar-size place for $1.3 million. Before settling on her downtown digs, Carey went shopping on the Upper East Side. After giving a pass to a townhouse on East 80th Street, she looked at a condo redevelopment project in another East 60s townhouse - which her ex-husband, Tommy Mottola, eventually snapped up; it's now selling for $45 million.

On the Set: Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey has returned, and she's back doing what she does best. Her newest single is getting a lot of radio play, and with good reason, after a very tumultuous year clouded in controversy. You would never know it from watching Mariah shoot her new video in a New York church, but the pressure is on as she returns with her first new single in over a year. It's a ballad called -- not coincidentally -- "Through the Rain." Last year, Mariah survived a very public meltdown, followed by a commercially disappointing film and CD, then a split from Virgin Records, which paid her millions to walk away after just one album. Now Mariah's under contract with a new label, Island Def Jam, and the 32-year-old superstar is trying to put the past behind her. She recorded her new album in a studio in Capri. Access Hollywood's Billy Bush sat down with Mariah on the set of her new video ...
Billy Bush: Why are you shooting the video in the church? 
Mariah Carey: We're in the church because everyone thought that the last part of the song was very inspirational and that I should wind up here. And it's kind of part of a narrative. I don't want to give too much away about the video, but the couple that we follow are kind of Romeo and Juliet heroes who wind up here at the end. 
Billy: Is that Hollywood rain or real rain? 
Mariah: It's Hollywood rain, but in New York when you transport it -- it loses something and it's just a little more raw.
Billy: I see Jamie-Lynn Sigler, the lovely Meadow Soprano, lingering around the church. Why is she here? 
Mariah: She's here because she's playing the young version of the mom who winds up in the church at the end.
Billy: So it's been awhile since your last release. How much pressure are you feeling? Are you feeling nervous, excited? 
Mariah: You know what, I'm excited about the music. If I were to be nervous then I wouldn't put a record out. I am making music for myself and my true fans. It's also a healing process for me. I just got back from Capri where I spent the past couple of months. I had to come back and forth for a bit for some family stuff. It was just really relaxing. I just totally immersed myself in the writing process -- because I write all my songs -- and producing. I basically live in the studio upstairs in this little apartment in Capri. And what it did was it was really just a chance to be reflective and just focus on the music and realize like, 'Hello, it's not that deep to get so stressed out over. It's only the music business. It's only TV-land.' The things that really matter like human beings and people and family and friends -- real friends -- are the things that are important. It's great to have success, but I could retire tomorrow and already achieved far more than my goals ever were. 
Billy: Can you believe you've been doing this since you were 19 years old? 
Mariah: Yeah. I know. Well, it's only been a year. (laughs) Well, like you said earlier I started so young. I started as a demo singer at 14. I grew up without money. I grew up having this intense determination and drive to make it, to kind of overcome the obstacles I was presented with, you know? Being interracial, being poor, feeling different, feeling inadequate. Then when everything happened for me and I became famous or whatever you want to call it -- I started working really hard, nonstop, an album a year plus promotion. It's very draining, and people don't realize it because they see you on TV and you're like, 'Yeah! Here's my new record. This is this!' you know? But that requires a lot, to do that 20 times in a row in every country in the world, if you chose to go all over the world.
Billy: And you have a problem saying no. 
Mariah: Exactly! 
Billy: I am also one of those people, too.
Mariah: Were you in the caretakers club too? (laughs)
Billy: Yes!
Mariah: The problem is the caretakers sometimes don't get taken care of. You neglect yourself and what I realized is it's not a bad thing to say no sometimes, put yourself first. And I just sort of realized that's what I had to do.
Billy: Tell me about the album, the first single. Musically, is this album different from what you have done before?
Mariah: The single is called "Through the Rain." It's kind of not dissimilar from songs like "Hero" or "Vision of Love." It's a ballad. And I had a lot of up-tempo records where I was like, 'I love this! It's gotta come out!' But when people heard the song, they were like this really has to be your first single. And I know people are going to associate it with, 'Oh that's about her and her life and stuff.' And of course everything you write comes from within you somewhere. But I always feel that it's important to inspire other people who may be going through something -- whether it's losing a loved one or going through whatever. I just try to instill in people the fact -- which is what I believe -- that if you firmly believe and you have enough faith you can get through anything. 
Billy: The ballad has been just a huge winner for you, right? I mean, it's the bread money, isn't it? 
Mariah: It is but I've had really big up-tempo records, too. It depends on what you choose to focus on. I'll always sing ballads, but I'm not going to stop singing up-tempos because the world is like, 'Oh, we just want her to sing ballads.' That's not true. Most 12-year-old girls in the street come up to me and want to talk to me about "Heartbreaker." There are some songs in there that are just undeniable club records, too. I'm not a one-dimensional artist. I'm not a one-dimensional person. If someone said to me, 'Can you write a jingle for milk?' Yes! I can do that! I'm a multi-racial person. I grew up with different influences in my life. So I don't like to be pigeonholed and put into one thing.
Billy: Let me ask you a corny question. Do you sing in the shower or is that downtime for you? 
Mariah: Well, I don't consider singing work. 
Billy: We all sing in the shower, do you? 
Mariah: Yeah, I do, but I like to take baths. (laughs)

Mariah Carey Insists She Just Needed Sleep, Taps Family History For Clip

NEW YORK - "I've been here for years, I don't know," Mariah Carey said Monday on the set of her video "Through the Rain" when asked about her much-talked-about comeback. Obviously with more platinum on her walls than Baby from Cash Money has in his mouth, 15 singles that have reached #1 on the Billboard chart and two Grammy Awards, MC is not stressing about proving a point to anybody. But as her commanding vocals blasted out the playback machine during the church scene, the finale of her two-day video shoot, it was also clear that Mariah was in fact coming back to her roots. "Through the Rain," which is the first single off of her still-untitled December 10 release, is a departure from the dancy, hip-hop-influenced initial offerings she hit us with from the last few LPs she dropped. In fact, "Through the Rain" takes us back to her self-titled debut, when she used the big ballad "Vision of Love" to create a buzz. She simply wasn't in the mood for dancing this time out; instead, real-life dilemmas inspired her latest song. "I've always tried to insert positivity into my songs wherever I can, to inspire other people who go through stuff," she said of the single's origins. "I mean the stuff they talked about in tabloids and the things that were so overly exaggerated, that's one aspect. I also went through a lot of personal stuff, a lot of family stuff this year. Losing a parent is an intense thing for anybody. It's brought me to another place. "People are going to read into it as, 'This is Mariah and her struggle,' " added Carey, who insisted there will be fun tracks on her album as well. "But the way I try to word it is, 'It's OK once you say I can make it through the rain.' Not just me going, 'I can make it through the rain,' it's me telling people that if you believe you can get through whatever you're going through, you can get to the other side." Rest and, ironically, returning to work were the main things Mariah needed to help her catch a second wind and get through her troubles (see "Mariah Carey And Virgin Part Ways"). "You know what," she asked rhetorically, sitting in full makeup and a long flowing dress, "I did actually have time to take a break, which is really what I needed. [I needed] downtime, just to sleep. And actually the writing process and working on this album has been something to immerse myself in, because I realized how that has always been my saving grace. There's a song on the album called 'My Saving Grace.' But it actually is [my saving grace], just to go into that process and really live the process of writing, recording, the whole thing, up to the main inception to the mastering of the record." The Dave Meyers-directed clip for "Through the Rain" is based on the singer's own life story. "Originally it wasn't going to have anything to do with that, but people were looking through my photo albums this year," she explained. "My father and I had made some photo albums together of his relatives and different people in the family. A couple people saw [the albums] and they were like, 'This is amazing that you have this.' I guess everybody was like, 'How would you feel about this type of concept [for a video]?' So I guess I thought if someone's going to do it might as well be me. "The story line [of the video] is about an interracial couple," she continued. "It's sort of Romeo and Juliet but it's set in the '60s and they're kind of torn apart. It's about their struggle and I'm sort of the narrator. I don't want to give too much away about it, but it's nice. Something I could relate to, being the product of an interracial union, though [my parents] did not wind up happily ever after standing in church together." Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who plays Meadow Soprano on "The Sopranos," gives Mariah a helping hand in the video. "We just got a call a few days ago and they said, 'You know Mariah would like you to play her mom in her video,' " Sigler explained. "I was like, 'What? Okay!' Not a phone call you expect to get. It's a bit surreal as I grew up being a big fan of Mariah, and to be playing her mother ... it's a very exciting week for me. It's fun for me - I get to be in '60s garb and have old-school hair. I look a little like my mother - a little too much. "With my character, she's basically going against her parent's wishes to be with this gentleman," she continued. "She's pregnant with a baby, which is Mariah, and they run away together. So it's kind of an epic love story, it's nice." All except the rain, Mariah noted with a laugh. "We're on day two of the shoot," she said. "Yesterday was me walking randomly through the streets singing. But then there was, of course naturally, the rain shower, which they told me, 'Oh, you're not going to get that wet.' I got completely soaking wet in this rain, but it looked really cool because it looked like the hugest rain storm New York has seen, ever. And it felt like it too. But it was good." Carey's new album will be released on her imprint MonarC, which is distributed by Island/Def Jam (see "Mariah Returning With First Def Jam Release In December"). She has recorded 20 songs for the LP with producers such as Jermaine Dupri, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and 7 Aurelius (see "Mariah Carey Records In Bahamas With Live Band, Strips Down With 7")

Mariah's a raining queen

STUNNING Mariah Carey struggles to keep her head above water as she shoots the video for her new single Through the Rain. And the pop beauty, 32, knows it's sink or swim time for her career, too. Her lastest album, Glitter, flopped - leading Virgin bosses to dump her with a £38million pay-off. Mariah, who signed a £14million deal with the Def Jam label, is due release a new album in December. The last thing she needs is a damp squib.
