October 2007 - Heroes of Mariah
Tonight, Halloween!!!!!!!
Me scared !!!!!!
This year, there will not be a special Heroes of Mariah Halloween either, again I saw enough freaks and horrors among the medias and even some fans this year to make it Halloween everyday.  From the medias, I can eventually admit it, they are so dumb and conditioned to hate, but from fans....
No, I'm not bitter, it's freakier than Halloween!!!!!

Mariah on Power 106's Big Boy's Neighborhood
Go on MariahDailyJournal for the audio and the full transcript (thanks a lot to Kelly K and MariahDailyJournal).
Mariah made promotion for her fragrance and talked about the upcoming singles/album.
Note: When talking about her being involved in other projects like her fragrance, and die-hard fans supporting it, Mariah is talking about her "true fans".
Here are some highlights:
-MC:  "I'm like still in the middle of, not in the middle but just trying to fine-tune things. People don't understand it's just I'm like a perfectionist so it takes me a while to try and get it together. So that's what I'm doing right now."
- BB: Do you have an actual date or guess-timate of when the album will drop?
MC: Yeah, I mean it's gonna have to be like the top of the year at this point which I'm like 'My God, I need to have a single,' you know.
- MC: I really have like a couple of singles that I'm like I wanna put this out now, like about 3 different records but there's all different types of records that I have too so it's like it's an interesting project that's kind of like I'm excited about it so...
-MC: You know but not everybody knows like we gotta mix the record, then we gotta master them, then they've gotta manufacture - all those like all that part of it so I'm just getting to this section where me and L.A. (Reid) and J.D. and whoever's gonna be really involved in the final, final decision-making and stuff. You know, we're just gonna start listening and start, unfortunately we have to eliminate some 'cause we already have like 16.
- LL: Do you have a favorite song so far though on the album, Mariah that you're just like, 'Man, I can't wait for them to hear this one'?
MC: You know what? It's so funny 'cause it changes like every time I go to work on a new song. I'm like, 'Oh, this is my favorite.' I know that sounds like you know, 'Whatever, you're right. Everybody says that' but I still like...I'm pretty much, there's a couple of ballads that I'm like in love with and then on this record what I think is more...

"M" doesn't sell that good in the US
Shares of EA fell today after they were downgraded by Wedbush Morgan Securities due to "luckwarm" responses to new fragrances.
In a note to their clients, Wedsbush wrote that Mariah's and Britney Spears new fragrances were selling poorly.
Eventually they look up for a positive benefit with the holiday season coming up and from a weak dollar on international business.

How many bottles bought Diddy?? (just kidding )
Diddy held a press conference last week in New York City to announce his partnership with CIROC vodka. Under the terms of the deal, Diddy and Sean Combs Enterprises will take the lead on all brand management decisions for CIROC, and will share in future profits and growth of the brand, which looks to be worth about 100-million dollars. While announcing his new alliance, Diddy took time to mention that over the past month, his new fragrance, Unforgivable, had outsold all of his female counterparts perfumes, such as Mariah Carey and Sarah Jessica Parker's lines... just as he had predicted.

Some Vegas shows for Mariah?
Now that Cher's forthcoming deal with Caesar's Palace Las Vegas has apparently fallen through, according to Norm Clarke of the 'Las Vegas Review Journal,' the Sin City hotel is looking for a headliner to share the 4,000-seat theater that Bette Midler will assume in Feb. 8, after Celine Dion's departure in December. Now there is word that Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Barbra Streisand are in talks to split the facility, similar to the way Elton John and Jerry Seinfeld previously did with Dion. In addition, there is also buzz that Stevie Wonder, as well as husband and wife duo Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have been approached by other properties to launch Vegas-based shows as well.

Heroes comment: Can I say I secretly pray this won't happen (well not so secretly as I write it here ), I don't know in the US, but in most parts of Europe the artists performing in Vegas (outside a Tour) are considered as hasbeens who try to make some money.  By the way, a fan posted this on HBF last week, she heard this on radio.  On another side, I didn't find any related news on Norm Clarkes's colums.....

Mariah in Jay-Z's "Roc Boys" video
Jay-Z had an All-Star studded music video shoot for follow-up single "Roc Boys" from his new album "American Gangster".
They did shoot the video to the song Satuday, directed by Chris Robinson. The song was produced by Diddy so he had to be in the video. He also brought Cassie with him on the set.  Diddy, Nas, and Jigga have a scene together.  Also, what might seem to be, the whole Def Jam roster was in the video… from their big money star like Mariah Carey to mixtape rappers like Uncle Murder and Tru Life (whom was walking around clowning yelling “Dipset Dipset”!). Memphis Bleek, Just Blaze, Beanie Siegel, even Freeway and Young Gunz  was there to rep the Dynasty which only make sense because of the theme of the song (Roc Boys). Def Jam Chairman, L.A. Reid and his son was in the house….Steve Bartels, an Exec at Island Records was in the house…NBA Player, Jamal Crawford, was in the house….America’s Top Model, Brea, was in the house…Stylist to the star (whom had a double shift with Ciara’s 5 City B-day extravaganza and this shoot), June Ambrose, was in the house…and finally, R&B singers Razah and The Dream was there too.
The video shoot was held at Jay-Z's club 40/40.

Mariah in problems with Sandler's ennemy... in the movie of course 

In "You Don't Mess With The Zohan", Adam Sandler plays a Mossad agent who fakes his own death to become a hairstylist in New York, but is then pulled back into action when Mariah runs into problems with his old enemy.  That's the only info for the moment.  Mariah isn't listed yet on the official castlist (by official I mean other than "imdb" and so on...).  The picture of the movie poster is still in discussion and could not be the definitive one.  As soon as I have some time, I'll make a promo page with all the infos about the movie.

JD about Mariah in his book "Young, Rich, and Dangerous: The Making of a Music Mogul"
I'm not gonna post in full on my website what's written about Mariah in the book, 'cause that's piracy too, but some quotes can't hurt.
Remember you can buy the book at the following link.

"In 1995, I got a call from Sony's boss Tommy Mottola to come to New York, to do some producing for his wife at the time, Mariah Carey. I never worked with a pop diva before, so I was kinda surprised they wanted me there. I thought my style would be too street for her. But it turns out that having me up there was all her idea.
For a minute Mariah - or MC as I like to call her - had been itching to do something different from the usual safe stuff that her label wanted her to stick with. But every time she suggested some hip-hop guy to work with Tommy said, "No Way." He didn't trust some rapper/producer being around his girl. I guess it was part jealousy and part fear that an association like that might hurt her image with her fan base.
Even though Mariah always considered herself to be first and foremost a black woman, everyone at the label was scared of her being too urban. She's far from some 'hood rat', but she's definitely a lil' ghetto and she was tired of being called the "ballad queen."

Me and MC knocked out our first song, "Always Be My Baby," at the Hit Factory in New York. At first I didn't even want to speak up when I had an idea about how a song should go. I was way out of my comfort zone. 
Tommy was nice to us despite his scary reputation. We were his guests so he made a point of being the gracious host. We were only there for the day, but he gave us the grand tour. But Mariah only started relaxing when Tommy and his people weren't around. She had household staff, security people, and assistants running around all over the place watching her every move. You couldn't even go to the bathroom without someone coming in right afterward to wipe everything down. It was like they were waiting outside the door listening when you were doing your do!
The tension got even worse when Brat flew up to record her piece in the remix later that day. In that hushed, uptight environment my lil' sis was like some Tasmanian devil on crack. Tommy had no idea what he signed up for.

When Brat arrived at the mansion she was all nervous. At first she couldn't even write her verse because she was so star-struck over meeting Mariah. MC was just as taken with my lil' sister. Even though Mariah was all girlie with her Hello Kitty obsession and sexy clothes, Brat's tomboy style was like her flip side. Brat acted out the way Mariah wished she could if only she didn't have Tommy's people always watching her.
Brat couldn't handle how clean and perfect the whole place was. Even the food bothered her. She was hungry, but she didn't want to touch all the fancy caterer stuff like bagels, cut fruit, and cheeses that were laid out in the studio. "This is video shoot food," she said, stamping her feet. Then she did her Brat thing and stirred up some major trouble.
"I'm hungry! Let's go get a cheeseburger," she said to Mariah.
It was the excuse Mariah was looking for to get out of there and go for a joy ride in one of the dozen sports cars she was never allowed to drive. Brat made her feel real bold. Finally Mariah had a partner in crime. She was only too happy to give Brat a ride to McDonald's, so the two of them split without telling anyone where they were going.
But meeting Mariah, who had all the toys and clothes Brat could ever dream of, and coming to understand how sad and lonely her life was at the time, was just the thing to give Brat some perspective.

Even though she never let it affect her grind as an artist, I'm sure it was tough for Mariah living like some caged canary and being watched all the time. But that's her story to tell in her own book!
One song in particular, "We Belong Together," made music history with more radio play than any other record since Elvis and The Beatles.
From the first beats to the final demo version we had just a few hours to get the whole record done. Mariah came to me this time, but she was the one on the night shift. She was scheduled to show up at 10:30 but she didn't get to Atlanta until 1 a.m. When she walked into SouthSide, she was all laid back, happy, and cracking jokes. People don't realize how much fun she is.
The songwriting went smoothly, but, musically, me and Mariah had some back-and-forth. At first Mariah was pushing for something more ghetto.
"No it's too out there, too urban," I said. "Lean it more towards the middle." I didn't want her doing all the syrupy ballad stuff her pas label executives tried to push her into. She also needed to hold herself back from trilling up and down the scales. I wanted to keep the power of her voice inside the framework of a great song. We finally agreed on what she called a "thugged out ballad."
About the 2006 Grammy's 
But for Mariah's sake I was nervous. I really did hope this album would win something. We were nominated eight times and she'd been through so much since her last Grammy win. A few nods for her from the an industry that wrote her off would've been cool.
(..) Our three awards were announced before the televised part of the show. Just as I pulled up I found out me and Johnta got one for best R&B song. To this day Mariah swears the Grammy for best R&B song means the most to her, because it's the first time she's been recognized more as an urban singer than a pop star and it was the category she always wanted to win.
It was crazy to me that the show's producers wouldn't let Mariah have her lil' moment up on stage. It was like she got all decked up for nothing. A lot op people were unhappy she didn't get her shine. In my opinion, it was just a bad decision made.
Mariah's the queen. She went to a lot of trouble and invested in all these dresses for the occasion. This woman sold more records than anybody, more than 200 million worldwide, and the viewers didn't get to see her give her acceptance speech. That's why the Grammy show's ratings are down. People are turning into American Idol instead because they know they're not gonna get to see what they want to see at the Grammy's. But through it all, MC kept on smiling.
A big thanks to SoSoMariah for all this

Scott Storch takes a break from current work with Mariah
Local producer Scott Storch has found other ways to have some fun outside the studio. He took a hard-earned break from current work with Mariah Carey, Sean Kingston and new up-and-comer, Carolyn to honor his son, who just turned 16. The moneymaker rolled out to Lucky Strike Saturday night arriving in one of his many notable vehicles – his blue Maybach – blazed and ready to bowl. The music mogul was accompanied by Fat Joe, the crew from 730 Productions (who Storch has been mentoring) and singer/songwriter Pooh Bear.

Mariah stalked at her appartment
As it was not enough to have the opportunity to see Mariah at the Today show, the View and Macy's, all on the same day, some people (don't call them fans please), went stalking Mariah at her appartment at noon yesterday.  A witness reported that Mariah arrived home in a car with purple flags with "M's" and butterflies, a dumbass passerby asked her handlers if the "M" stood for "Madonna." They weren't happy.

Mariah Drops Hints About LP
Mariah Carey paid "TRL" a visit today and gabbed about her new fragrance line and upcoming studio album. "I've been working on this record while I'm working on the fragrance," she revealed, saying that her yet-untitled LP and just-released M by Mariah Carey line "kind of work together." "I wanted the fragrance to be sensual. ... It's really been like writing a song ... this was almost the same creative process." She also explained why she pushed back her yet-untitled album, which had previously been scheduled for December 4, to next year. "You can't really put records out in December if you want the whole world to have a chance to actually hear it, and my fans all over the world are very important to me," she said, adding that she also wants to put out a pair of singles before the album drops. Carey dropped another hint about the effort, saying she "just had a really, really hot session with somebody in Miami," and while she was stubborn about letting us know just who the person in question is, she did let it slip that it's a man and that he's "somebody very popular." When asked what advice she might give Britney Spears, Carey didn't mention Spears specifically but said, "You gotta go through the ups to have the downs; you gotta go through the downs to have the ups. You have to go through life like any other person. To me, you just stay grounded spiritually, get your rest, and don't take it all so seriously." ...

Mariah Mayhem at Macy's
A royal purple carpet flanked by a drumline in matching purple T-shirts with a large "M" emblazoned on the front, and so many security guards, you'd think the Queen were arriving. 

Though this wasn't for the Queen of England, it was for pop royalty, nonetheless. The grand setup at the Macy's flagship store in New York on Tuesday afternoon, October 23, signaled the launch of Grammy Award-winning artist Mariah Carey's debut fragrance, M by Mariah Carey. 

The department store was in a tizzy as shoppers and store employees crowded the center aisle of the cosmetics department and even the mezzanine balcony with camera phones in hand and necks craned, hoping to get a glimpse at the singer when she arrived to greet the 200 lucky fans who ponied up $130 for a fragrance set, guaranteeing a chance to meet Carey and get her autograph. The first fifty to purchase the "VIP" package, priced at $305, got a photo opp, a T-shirt and the pure parfum. 

The fragrance, created by Elizabeth Arden with input from Carey, is a blend of rich scents like Moroccan insense, the Tahitian tiare flower and toasted marshmallows 

Tom Green, 26, from Leeds, England was one of the first ten people in line, and waited 23 hours with other fellow fans, including Nicole Randall, 22, from King Park, NY; Sapphira Hendrix, 22 from Brooklyn, NY and Davidia Rosshu, 25, from Tampa, Fla., who came to New York especially for the Macy's event. 

"I've always been a fan," said Green, who camped out on the street overnight in order to meet Carey. 

"With the cockroaches! Don't forget the cockroaches! We were killing them all night!" said Kristina Spencer, 18, of Commack, NY, who also waited 23 hours. 

At 10 minutes past five o'clock, the drumline, from the Brooklyn Music and Arts program, began enthusiastically chanting and drumming a welcoming cheer for Carey with so much gusto that it was impossible not to give it one's full attention. "Nobody's even shopping anymore!" joked one Macy's employee. After several minutes, Carey finally appeared, though her walk down the purple carpet was less a grand procession and more a slow jog, surrounded by security as though she were trying to avoid a crush of paparazzi. 

After all the fanfare, some onlookers were a little bit disappointed by the brief arrival. 

"I'm not impressed," said one employee to another, and headed back to the sales floor.

Mariah Carey in Feud with Diddy Over New Perfume?
Mariah Carey took the Big Apple by storm yesterday to launch her first ever fragrance, M, and “Extra” was in the middle of the party. 

Mariah, dressed in a stunning black Henry Leger dress, was surrounded by hundreds of people at Macy’s Herald Square as fans clamored to get an autograph. In true diva fashion, she arrived in a Bentley Phantom.

But with the crowd closing in, and lots of fans to please, Mariah told “Extra” her secret to practical fashion: “Comfortable shoes!” she said. 

The gorgeous singer also went on rumor control, answering questions about a secret boyfriend of two years. 

“I was talking about you,” she told “Extra’s” A.J. Calloway. “Aren’t we always having an affair?”

Mariah also tackled reports that she’s in a fight with Sean “Diddy” Combs over his rival perfume. 

“I have no feud with Diddy,” she insisted. “He knows I love him.”

Mariah’s focus for now includes her new record, a follow-up to her multi-platinum comeback CD “The Emancipation of Mimi.” It hits shelves early next year. 

“You know what, I'm really excited about this album,” she said. “I got three more songs to sing that I already wrote.

Moony's report and dowloads all for you all to enjoy 
The day started with the Today show. Mariah arrived and made a quick entrance. Out on the plaza, she gave some autographs, and aside from going on TV to the Today Show, I think she did another interview. Then, she immediately headed over to the View. After the View, as Mariah was driven out of a parking lot, a fan showed a sign that said, "D&G workmanship is bleak," referring to the fact that a button fell off of her D&G jacket in the middle of 106 & Park the day before. She rolled down a car widow and said it was funny. 

Around 5:20pm, she arrived at Macy's main entrance on Broadway not in a regular limo but in something else that I never expected! You gotta look forward to pics/vidz! She was absolutely gorgeous!!  She then walked down a "purple" carpet to get to where the signing would take place. She first gave a speech about the fragrance and did some interviews including ones with Extra TV and MTV. Then the signing began. She looked really happy seeing fans that come up to her for her autographs. In the middle of the signing, she took a bathroom break. Following the signing, she went upstairs for a meet and greet session. According to someone who waited outside Macy's, the crowd had grown unbelievably large by the time she left there.

Scent of success
Mariah Carey got a major welcome yesterday at Macy's Herald Square, where she made an appearance to promote her new perfume, M. Drummers from Brooklyn Music and Arts Program's Drumline lined the purple carpet that was rolled out for the diva, who arrived in a black Bentley Phantom. "There are hundreds of people here, about 18 people deep; it goes across the street," said one onlooker.

The DVD in Germany, but ... it's the UK import
German fans can now pre-order the "The Adventures of Mimi" DVD on Amazon Germany, but it's strange they list it as the UK import, so of course it's more expensive, the listed price is 34,99 Euro.
Maybe, German fans should wait before ordering it, 'cause if it comes finally out in Germany and you already bought the UK one, the German sales will be bad and they will think Mariah has less fans in Germany.  Just my though.

Until now the DVD is officially confirmed and will be released in the following countries:
- Belgium on Nov.16
- Ireland on Nov.16
- UK on Nov.19
- France on Nov.19
- Spain on Nov. 20
- Japan, november.
- Finland on Dec. 21

Someone from Mariah's staff or at BET did a mistake
Some pictures of Mariah on BET are spreading fast around the world.  Can you believe medias picked up the ones where an assistant is using paper strips to eliminate sweat from Mariah's upper lip and chin and pretend that her make-up artist waxed off facial hair.
How lame is this, who would do that in front of an audience and cameras. C'mon, people!!!!!
Someone did a mistake, allowing the photographers to take this kind of pictures, they should have known the wolves were gonna make up trash with it.
The Daily Mail, now updated and removed their trash text, but it's a bit late as it's already all over the world and probably soon in magazines. 
As long as these pics are available on WENN, any medias can buy them and make up the same story.

Rumor alert: Jermaine Dupri wants Janet and Mariah to release a joint album
If you though that the Kanye - 50 Cent battle generated some buzz, you're not going to believe what Def Jam is considering. MediaTakeOut.com spoke with a Def Jam insider who claims that Jermaine is trying to convince Janet and Mariah to release a joint album. 

According to an executive at the record label, Jermaine came up with the idea as a way of increasing interest in both albums. The insider explained to MediaTakeOut.com, "There hasn't been a ton of interest out there for a new Mariah Carey [album], and there's even less for a Janet [Jackson album]. [Jermaine] thinks that if the two were combined, it would generate enough buzz to increase the overall sales for both artists."

Our source added "I think it's a brilliant idea. With [the music industry] business struggling, this is exactly the kind of thing we need to do if we're going to increase sales.

But it appears that neither Mariah or Janet are as easy to convince as our insider. The Def Jam exec told MediaTakeOut.com that, so far, neither woman has signed on to Jermaine's idea.

Audio: Mariah Calls In To The Wendy Williams Show
At about 4:45pm today, Mariah called in to the Wendy Williams Show on New York's WBLS 107.5 FM to promote her "M by Mariah Carey" fragrance launch at Macy's Herald Square tomorrow. During the brief chat with Wendy, Mariah also talked about the rumored hook-up with Rick Fox, her morsel diet, the "M" video shoot, among other things. See transcript below.

Mariah Carey: We always do... and I'm always festive with you, you know it! Am I not always festive? 
Wendy Williams: Yes you are, and I was just talking about you the other day, how you bring the Tiffany glasses and I keep them. And, there's so much to talk with you about, I'll just give you a little teaser, O.K.?
MC: O.K., how are you doing though, good?
WW: Yes, Mariah, everything is going really well.
MC: I'm just stressing that I'm being a polite person, see most artists don't care, they just go on and talk about their own selves.
WW: Well, we don't mind that, because we know that to be as creative as you all are, you have got to have yourselves as the center of the universe. Is that kind of true or not?
MC: Well, I don't know, I mean, it doesn't seem like it to me. I feel like, you know, you gotta give out what you wanna get back.
WW: Well, yeah... well, look, are you dating Rick Fox?
MC: [laughs]
WW: Ooohhh
MC: No! I just love that that's your first question about the fragrance, we've got all this stuff, you did give me a nice build up, I heard you, I heard you.
WW: That's why I gave you the build up, I was coming back around to the fragrance, has Rick Fox ever smelled the fragrance on you? Like at Winston's in Hollywood at one o'clock in the morning when your song "Fantasy" came on, they said you guys were dancing.
MC: What?! Okay, I am not dating Rick Fox, no. That is not true.
WW: Have you ever kissed him?
MC: No, I have not kissed him. [laughs] Wendy, why are you acting like we're in third grade and you're passing me a note? "Have you kissed him..."
WW: Because we are! We're both very very much able to embrace our 12 year old. I can't wait till you to come in. 
MC: Yes we are...
WW: Can I ask you one thing?
MC: About this?
WW: No, about the morsel diet.
MC: Oh, about the morsel diet.
WW: Cause your body's like...
MC: I can't even believe people voted that as the number one diet.
WW: I know, I saw it too.
MC: I heard about it, I didn't see it.
WW: You know what I call that? I call that the suddenly diet. That's where you eat just enough and then before you finish swallowing you throw your food away.
MC: Yeah, like you definitely can't keep it there or you will eat it. You have to just take like the tiny bit of the morsel of what you want and then get it out of there.
WW: Yeah, I totally understand. I've invented some of these diets myself. But look, alright so, this is what we're gonna do. Let's promote your appearance at Macy's and then when you do come to the studio and then I get you under the spell of the truth serum, we will talk about men, bodies, movies, music, people that you love and people that you don't like.
MC: People that I don't like... we have to talk about that? We love everybody.
WW: By the way, I saw "Mean Girls" finally.
MC: You did? Okay, do you understand why I like it or you don't?
WW: Yeah, I do.
MC: You see? I told you!
WW: My thing is, is that I think that you and your squad of girls, you're the mean girls.
MC: Yeah, I'm the mean one, but it's only a cover... it's only a cover. Anybody that mean isn't really mean, they just cover up their own insecurities.
WW: I like the cover by the way of your representation of your own fragrance and I also really like the commercial, because of course with your angelic voice - nobody does it like you.
MC: Aw, thank you, that's very nice. I was like, you know, you never know how this stuff's gonna turn out, but we shot that cover in St. Maarten so I was actually in that pool for like hours, and it looks really nice and serene and whatever, but it was a lot of dudes walking around in there with lights and what not. I thought I was gonna get electrocuted.
WW: Alright, so come soon, let's talk about Macy's. You're gonna be at Macy's tomorrow?
MC: Yes, 5:00pm, Herald Square, Macy's, very very excited about it. Have to thank the fans in case they're listening for coming out early early early and waiting and I'm sorry that I'm not there to feed you with pizza and give you cocoa and stuff like I usually do, 'cause that's like you know, they've been waiting, they told me that this was like a record breaking thing. The... I don't know. What is it? Melissa has to say it, I can't say it... go ahead.
[Melissa: More than any other person Macy's never had a line like that.]
MC: That's a nice thing.
WW: That is a nice thing.
MC: I'm just thankful to them, so I'm just thanking them.
WW: What kind of look are you gonna be giving them?
MC: I don't know, tomorrow is too far away to know.
WW: But whatever it is, it's going to be short and tight.
MC: Maybe, it could be a long... no, it's not gonna be long. You would like these boots that I'm rocking today.
WW: Just one more thing, and then I'm gonna go. When you hooked up with Karl Lagerfeld, and I know you love those people dearly and that's all great, but Mariah, I so thought that they were trying to make you into something that you enjoy being.
MC: But you know what? The problem is, is that dress was shiny. If it had been a matte material that wasn't gonna give you like 85 different like shimmers, like I'm the one who should have known better than to try to wear that on the red carpet, because on the red carpet you can't control anything. Honestly? In person, looking in regular light, it actually looked good, and people were telling me "Oooh, this is the best I've ever seen you" blah blah blah. And then it was like "Oh she's fat, she's huge!" you know, it was like a total drama, so I was like "Okay, whatever."
WW: I like the Mariah in the short and tight. And P.S and I LOVE the purple dress on US.
MC: You do? The purple dress on US?
WW: YES! Are you kidding me? I love it!
MC: Thank you, that was made by this wonderful lady named Nile, and she hooked it up for me because it matches the bottle of the perfume, that was the whole point and... so that was the whole thing!
WW: Alright, so look, so have fun everybody, New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, people from out of town, be at Macy's Herald Square, it's the biggest Macy's in the world, and at 5 o'clock tomorrow, Mariah Carey is going to be there to meet and greet with her new perfume "M" and it's just in time for the holidays.
MC: Yes it is, and thank you for that, for reminding me of that, and I hope to see you soon.
WW: Oh here we go, here's the 1-2 step!
MC: What? Whatchu mean? I'm saying I hope to see you soon, I'll see you! I'm gonna bring a festive package like I always do.
WW: Love it. Alright, so have a great day Mariah and I'll see you soon.
MC: Thank you Wendy.
WW: Alright, take care, bye bye!
MC: Bye!
WW: See, I may not be friendly with everyone, but Mariah and I, for better or for worse, have been pretty consistent. In my career. In terms of our dealings. We've been pretty consistent. You know why? 'Cause Mariah, Mariah's not scared to face an issue, she's also not scared to not let you just continue to talk and run over. Oh, she's a delightful talker. She'll just let you paint her into a corner and tell you what she's been doing, she'll tell you, or she'll be coy about it, but her body language will twist. You know what I mean? And she always brings the foods and the drinks, she's... I like Mariah. A LOT!

Mariah Carey on Her New Fragrance, Album
Even though Mariah Carey has a new fragrance, she never was the type to spray on a scent before she left the house. In fact, Carey says she never really wore perfumes until she fell in love with her own creation, "M."

"This is the first fragrance that I wear," Carey told The Associated Press in an interview Monday. "I'm not really a perfume person at all ... Things that are too strong and overwhelming, that's what I was always not a fan of."

But when Elizabeth Arden approached the superstar to create her own perfume, it piqued her interest — mainly because the cosmetics company didn't want to use just her name, but wanted her input in the creation of the scent, which she describes as light, sensual and memorable.

"They were welcoming in my involvement just in every detail, and that was what was the most exciting thing to me," said Carey.

Carey says the fragrance, which comes in a purple bottle with her signature butterfly icon on top, was based on some of her favorite things. One is a Moroccan incense; another is a flower called the Living Tahitian Tiare. But another scent mixed into the fragrance is unexpected: toasted marshmallows.

That aroma was added because it evoked happy memories of her childhood around the campfire. But she adds: "It's blended in there — it's not like you're gonna walk around smelling like marshmallows."

Carey worked on "M" while on tour and working on her latest album, and said she spent as much time on launching the fragrance as she did working on her music career: "I'm obsessed with it!"

But now she's back to putting most of her focus on the new record, due out early next year. The as-yet-untitled album is the follow-up to her multiplatinum comeback disc, "The Emancipation of Mimi," which earned her three Grammys.

"It's hard for me to sit here and talk about it without sounding like I'm bragging if I'm in love with it, but I'm in love with this album," she says. "I think that having the success with the last record allowed me to have more freedom. ... and just make records that I like. It's kind of a really fun record."

Fans or haters?
This afternoon, I was walking in the city center of Brussels, talking and joking as usual with ET (private joke), but there was something in our mind and we couldn't enjoy this very nice sunny afternoon. We read and were reported so much insults and such hateful words towards Mariah in the past 2 days that we were kinda depressed.  We sat down at a terrace and were looking at the people walking in the streets (hehe, we are people watchers  ).
Suddenly ET asked a young pair sitting near by, "Imagine you're fan of an artist, nothing is really confirmed but you expect a new album soon, then you hear the album will come out 2 months later than you expected, how would you react? Would you insult and bash your favorite artist?".  The young girl seemed a lil' lost, but the guy got it and without hesitation he replied: "If you bash your favorite artist for whatever reason, it's time to let it go".  Thank god, we knew he was right, we knew we were right.  Guys, if some of you can't handle it anymore, let it go, there's no need to stay glued at someone you don't respect anymore, there's no need to call her names (and very bad names), Mariah doesn't need haters among her fans, she has already enough haters.  Some of you are now over it, but some others still can't helpt it and keep bashing.

To make it clear, I looked for some facts:
- Some say, Mariah doesn't need to make movies and "You Don't Mess With The Zohan" is the reason the album isn't finish.
False: That movie was announced on April the 18th. (check the news).

- Some say, if Mariah hadn't shot "Tennessee", the album would be finished.
False: "Tennessee" was postponed for the Tour (so if you really need to blame something, blame the Tour).

- Some say, the star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame was scheduled this year, so it's proof the album would be released.
False: The Hollywood, CA Chamber of Commerce already said on May the 24th. that Mariah would NOT receive her star this year.

- From Mariah herself in the July voice message: "I'm working and I'm trying hard to get the nice album out by the end of this year"

- Some are now surprised to know Da Brat will be on the album and of course needs to trash, we knew it since June the 25th., Jasmine gave us the hint in her column on The Voice.

Imagine if Mariah receives an Oscar for "Tennessee" and receives her star on the Walk Of Fame as a song writer, composer, singer and actress, that would mean so much for her, wouldn't you be happy for her?

Be happy like she is for her fragrance, her movie(s), she's a singer yes, but because she's a singer some of you think she may not do something else. She may not do what she likes.  Who are you to control her way to live, her way to dress, her way to act, who are you???? Tommy Mottola?

We don't want her to have another breakdown, right.

I'll not play the moralist, but try to look in your brain if you still have one and enjoy the chance we have to love and support an amazing artist like Mariah. 
Love her, support her, unconditionnally!
That's the way we can thank her for the 17 amazing years she gave us!!!!

I know I'll be hated for this post, but I don't care....

I'll now make a lil' walk, my toothbrush is waiting at the door with her leash, she still thinks she's a dog

Would You Wear Mariah Carey’s Super High Heels?

Mariah Carey has an established over-the-top style — but even knowing her love for big hair, slinky dresses and high heels, our jaws still dropped over the shoes she wore out to dinner in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. The singer (and new perfume maven) headed out to eat in a pair of Giambattista Valli platform heels that have a staggering five and a half inch heel on them (135 mm, to be exact). We cannot imagine being able to take one step in a pair of heels that high, much less spend a whole night out in them (although it does look like Mariah is getting a little help)! But maybe we’re just wimpy so we want to know what you think! Tell us: Would you wear Mariah’s high heels? Could you walk in them?

Mariah Carey has postponed the release of her new album
Mariah Carey has postponed the release of her new album, previously scheduled for Dec. 4, until next February.

At that rate, the album, a follow-up to “The Emancipation of Mimi,” will be bumping right into a new CD from Madonna. At the same time, Janet Jackson — now recording for Island/Def Jam, home of Mariah — may have her new release ready, too.

Get set for Diva Logjam. And to make matters even more interesting, Janet’s boyfriend, Jermaine Dupri, is the producer working with Randy Jackson and others on Mariah’s CD. Dupri brought Jackson over to Island/Def Jam with him from Virgin Records, now lost somewhere in the EMI Music shuffle.

Heroes comment: Sorry, but I can't help but laughing at all the "the single will leak this week" since several weeks now, I can't help laughing at the mad fans, when was it officially confirmed that the album would be released on December the 4th., except a few months ago a "hint" from Doug Morris and a "hint" from LA Reid a few weeks ago (but never on Mariah's official site or a Press Release).  Even the local label offices started to have a doubt.  Mariah feels it that way and it's all good .  C'mon guys, it's not the end of the world, you will survive!!!!!

Is Mariah a Fox-y Lady? Reps for both deny
I’m not saying they’re more than just friends, but Mariah Carey and Vanessa Williams ex/former basketball star Rick Fox were hanging out into the wee hours last night.

A source tells me Carey and Fox walked into Winston’s in West Hollywood together at about 1 a.m.

“They sat on top of the banquettes in a corner booth,” the source reports. “Then the deejay played Mariah’s 'Fantasy,' and the two ‘sat danced’ at the table.”

So, are they dating? Reps for both say they are not.

Mariah Gettin' Foxy?
After reportedly being turned away from Hyde (WTF? ), Mariah headed over to Winston's, in a sexy, curve-hugging Herve Leger frock, where photogs say Rick Fox arrived just minutes before. Nothing suspicious there but when Rick left the club, photogs say he waited in his SUV for Mariah to board her Bentley, then followed her home!

Is Live Nation the future of music business?
Live Nation is an empire, take a look by yourself by reading the entire article.  Mariah is quoted, as the Media Rights section helped make Mariah's DVD.
"Media Rights: Media Rights develops and contracts media rights in all forms of distribution, including television, home video, internet, mobile, radio, digital cinema and other emerging channels. Recent projects include DVD's for the Rolling Stones, Mariah Carey and Barbra Streisand, and documentaries for Pete Seeger and Harry Belafonte."

On another side with all the buzz going on with Live Nation signing artists, Vivendi Chief (Universal is part of the group) says ""I do not believe we'll lose a lot of artists," "the music industry is at a turning point. After relying on sales of CDs for years, it now has to look at diversifying its business model." "It used to be just focused on the record and everybody thought all the rest was just promotions in order to sell records. Now it's a more balanced business where you have records, TV shows, merchandise, touring revenues and so on."

Mariah on Forbes: How They Got Their Big Break
Search all you want, there is no magic formula for fame and fortune.
The truth is, big breaks don't just happen; people make them happen--through hard work, networking, courage, passion and even pain.
Talent and tenacity notwithstanding, having the right friends helps, too--as pop star Mariah Carey can attest. While working as a backup singer for Puerto Rican performer Brenda Starr in 1988, Carey met Columbia Records executive Tommy Mottola at a party. As a favor, Starr gave Carey's demo tape to Mattola. After a listen, he bolted back to the party to track Carey down and sign her on. Good move for everyone: Carey's first five singles hit the Billboard Hot 100.

No, life isn't fair. But with a little effort, you can boost your odds.

Life of Danja
When Britney, Madonna or Mariah need help, they turn to producer Nate 'Danja' Hills. How a 26-year-old pastor's son is helping reshape the music industry's hit-making machine in the digital age.

He is producer Nate Hills, aka Danja (pronounced "DANE-ja"). At age 26, Mr. Hills is emerging as one of music's elite, behind-the-scenes hit makers. With industry sales in a slump, demand for his services -- and those of other top producers -- is surging.
As he navigates this landscape, Mr. Hills offers an example of how radically the role of producer has shifted and the extent to which a hit hinges on the most basic ingredients, especially the beat. For many rock and country tunes, the song still takes shape when a songwriter picks up a guitar or sits down at a piano, but for the hip-hop and R&B songs that dominate today's pop charts, the moment of creation is more likely to be when a producer fires up a drum machine.

Demand for his aggressive, sculpted beats, offset by spacey melodies has packed his calendar with clients ranging from Mariah Carey to rapper Missy Elliott.

Mr. Hills typically charges $50,000 to $100,000 per track, up from $35,000 to $50,000 last year, according to his lawyer, David M. Ehrlich. Mr. Hills receives half this sum up front from the record label and the other half after the song is completed and approved. That money comes as an advance: After the label recoups his production fee, Mr. Hills receives production royalties that typically amount to about 4% to 5% of the music's retail cost, prorated based on how many tracks he produced.

Mr. Hills says he will vary his fees if it will broaden his impact on a project. "Instead of a label paying $75,000 or $100,000 for a track, I'll do multiple tracks for $50,000 each. Let's just make a sound, an album, and we can all make money."

Unlike traditional producers, Mr. Hills also composes the music, so he collects additional royalties from record sales and when the music is used on TV or played on the radio.

Long Island Music Hall of Fame Induction Gala on October 21st Postponed
Event at Kupferberg Center for the Arts at Queens College to be Rescheduled Due To Scheduling Conflicts
(Long Island, NY, October 12, 2007) -- The Long Island Music Hall of Fame today announced the postponement of its second annual Hall of Fame Induction and Celebration Gala. The event was to have taken place Sunday, October 21st at the Kupferberg Center for the Arts at Queens College.

According to LIMHOF Chairman Richard L'Hommedieu, "Due to last minute scheduling conflicts, many of the artists due to be inducted on Oct. 21st, have told us within the last few days that unfortunately they are unable to attend. LIMHOF's inaugural induction last year was a smash, and this year we made every effort to equal that success. We are deeply committed to the artist inductees, their fans, and our sponsors, to present the most entertaining and educational program possible. Anything less than that does everyone a disservice." 

Mr. L'Hommedieu added: "Unfortunately, artist conflicts affected the show – and ticket sales could not support the event. As a 501 C3 organization, we have a fiduciary responsibility to the LI Music Hall of Fame to conserve our resources, in order to further our educational programs and our future museum. This short-term postponement will allow us to continue in our mission." 

"Therefore, we made the difficult decision to postpone this year's event and to reschedule it at a time when we can present a more complete lineup of inductees and to offer them, other performing artists, and the public, an outstanding event at which they can be fully recognized and honored. We thank all the inductee artists, talent presenters, fans, and sponsors for their continued support, and look forward to presenting the awards to them at an event to be announced in the near future." 

The 2007 list of Inductees are: Simon and Garfunkel, Blue Oyster Cult , LL Cool J, Carole King, Arlo Guthrie, Public Enemy, Count Basie, Louis Armstrong, Aaron Copland, The Good Rats, The Ramones, Jean Ritchie, Kenny Vance, The Tokens, Guy Lombardo, Mariah Carey, Neil Diamond, Bob Buchmann, Eddie Money, Beverly Sills, Walter Becker, Pat Benatar, Barbra Streisand and Marvin Hamlisch.

The Smile Ambassadors are selected based on their commitment to global philanthropy and a willingness to speak out on behalf of children. Their visibility and passion will be harnessed to bring large-scale awareness to the needs of children worldwide throughout the organization’s 25th Anniversary efforts, including the November 2007 World Journey of Smiles, which will feature simultaneous medical missions in 25 countries with a goal of treating an estimated 5,000 children.

Dupri: 'I wouldn't want to do a song with Mariah and Janet and it don't live up to them being as big as they are,'
Dupri said fans can expect to hear new Janet Jackson material sometime next year. 
"Probably in February or March or the summer," JD said. "It's 45 percent done. Singer/songwriter The-Dream has a song on her album, as does Rodney Jerkins. It's gonna be a crazy album. It's a Janet record. I'm A&R-ing, and I'm probably going to be the executive producer. But I'm getting records she likes and pulling records from other people. She has a duet with Maroon 5. Just little things." 

One huge thing people have been asking Dupri about is a potential duet between Janet and Mariah Carey, especially since they are now labelmates. (JD went so far as to promise a duet featuring the divas on Janet's last album, but it never materialized.) Nelly, for one, wanted to try and pull off the collaboration on his upcoming Brass Knuckles LP, but he couldn't come up with a good enough idea for the song. 

"The thing about that is, I don't force an idea," Dupri explained. "It's a great idea if you can come up with the record. It has to be something that's organic. It can't be something we force just because the voices is together. I believe the last couple of records we saw where there are two big artists that came together and collaborated, they don't live up to be the record we want them to be. I was a little disappointed with the R. Kelly and Usher record 'Same Girl'. I thought the record should have been bigger than what it was. ... I wouldn't want to do a song with Mariah and Janet and it don't live up to them being as big as they are. ... But the collaboration is gonna surface one day. Something is gonna come up, and we gonna say, 'This is it.' "

Mariah Makes Billboard's Top Women of the Year List!!!!!!
Billboard's 2nd annual Women In Music issue on newsstands now includes a list of the top 5 female artists, who were selected for their prowess as business women. Billboard recognized Mariah as not only one of the top female performers but also an artist who has managed her business interests with exceptional skill. 

Mariah Carey used her name-brand cachet during the first decade of her career, assisting a host of philanthropic organizations. She co-founded Camp Mariah, Career Awareness Camp aiding the Fresh Air Fund in the early 90's, exposing inner-city youths to specific career fields and to teach young people about the wide range of career possibilities available to them. Mariah has worked with countless other charitable organizations including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, VH1 Save The Music, New York's Police Athletic League, Presbyterian Hospital and the Administration for Children's Services. 

Among Mariah's business enterprises outside the music world include her endorsement for Intel Centrino PCs, and launched Glamorized, a jewelry and accessory line for teens through Claire's. Carey also has leveraged her success by recording and promoting a series of ringtones in partnership with Pepsi and Motorola. This past spring, she developed her first fragrance, M, from Elizabeth Arden which is in stores now. Forbes magazine estimates that Carey is the sixth wealthiest woman in entertainment.

Win Mariah Carey's Money!
On Hawaii's most popular hip hop station Power 104.3, there's a new contest to win Mariah Carey's Money.   A commercial for the contest aired and Mariah "appeared" on the commercial saying several lines about giving away her money to the listeners, something on the lines of "I'm giving away my money, not all.... but some".

"M" sponsors "The Hill"
Reality show "The Hills" mentioned "Tonight's episode is brought to you by M from Mariah Carey" and then a brief version of the commercial was shown.

Swizz Beatz
When Swizz is delivering his random rap-shouts, he sometimes sounds like a bit of a clown, but he definitely comes off as thoughtful and sincere in person. His neckpiece was impressive as well, but in a slightly more subtle way than Joc's -- it's a small reproduction of Andy Warhol's "Dracula." (He said he's a big art collector and owns a ten foot Sam Francis watercolor). Swizz talked about what a big year it's been for him, and with all the name's he ran off for upcoming projects, it seems like the run isn't going to end anytime soon: Busta, Jadakiss, Cassidy, Mariah Carey, Chris Brown, and Alicia Keys, to name a few.

Star Scents: Celebs Are Enjoying The Sweet Smell of Success
The Fragrances may start in the garden, but with stars in the mix, they end with pure perfection—and profit!
Celebrities have been selling fragrances for as long as most of us can remember. But this year, it’s the African-American market that’s finally feeling the love. In 2007 alone, the likes of Mariah Carey, Usher, Beyoncé and Diddy have lent their names and unique personalities to new launches. And whatever the scent, they all smell like big money. 

Having an eponymous fragrance is a status symbol, and creating a successful one can turn a celeb into a full-fledged mogul, pursued by designers and adored by consumers worldwide.

Not to mention that many big names, like Carey, love the chance to show that their mixing skills go far beyond the studio. Her much-anticipated women’s scent, M by Mariah Carey for Elizabeth Arden, drew on marshmallows (which remind her of being in the kitchen with her dad), sea breeze (representing her love for the Mediterranean) and Moroccan incense (which she favors).

Celeb scents represent 7 percent of the prestige fragrance market, which had U.S. sales of $2.8 billion last year, according to NPD. And though experts say the star-powered trend may be slowing at last, the influx of African-American notables may be just the thing to keep major fragrance consumers—that is, us—coming.

It seems Australia makes a big hype for Mariah's perfume, way to go!!!!!!!!
- "M" billboard & poster adverts outside the Myer entrance of Chadstone shopping centre in Melbourne.

- A fan has spotted an "M" by Mariah Carey logo-ed car driving along Punt Road in South Yarra.
This is what she has to say about it:
"...I couldn't believe my eyes!!!  It’s this cute little 2 door car that’s completely covered in the "M" ad. This is BY FAR the most incredible Mariah-related campaign in Australia I have EVER SEEN..."

Will Mariah appear in this seasons X Factor in the UK?
Singing legend Michael Jackson is to star on The X Factor, we can reveal. 
He has agreed to be a mentor for the show broadcast on December 1. 
It is a huge coup both for the talent search show and ITV. 
The channel broadcast the Martin Bashir interview with Jacko, 49, that led to his court case for allegedly molesting a boy. The pop star was acquitted. 
Girls Aloud will also be making an appearance – rumoured to be one of their last before an expected split. 
The girls signed up despite member Cheryl Cole slating the show recently. 
She said the age limit should not have been lowered to 14, adding: “To have someone criticise you when you’re that young is very hard. Give them a few years, a chance to finish school and they’ll be ready.” 

Celine Dion, Rihanna, Kylie, Shayne Ward, Leona Lewis, Westlife and Mariah Carey have also agreed to appear. 
They will spend several days with the finalists – helping them prepare their songs and fine-tune their voices. 
They will also perform one of their own songs. 

An insider said: “We’ve got some huge names but Michael Jackson really is a sensational signing. He is a truly global, worldwide superstar. And this will be his first TV appearance in Britain since the Martin Bashir interview. Given his background with ITV, it’s even more astonishing that he agreed to do it.” 
Judges Louis Walsh, Simon Cowell, Dannii Minogue and Sharon Osbourne have all done their bit to persuade stars to appear. 
Dannii has got big sister Kylie to be on the final show. The live programmes kick off on October 20 with Leona Lewis. 
The source said: “There has been some top-level negotiating here. Everyone is absolutely delighted. 
“The contestants are better, the judging panel is bigger and better, so the celebrity guests had to be. 
“This is going to be the best show on TV.”

World Peace One moved to Dec. 8
On December 8, 2007, World Peace One™ will deliver the largest humanitarian event ever experienced. The event is currently planned to be broadcast "Live" from 16 primary host venues with the support of secondary host cities spanning 24 time-zones across the world.
Due to the nature of WP1-10's Ten-Year Global Peace Mission and our desire to deepen the impact of our efforts, WP1's Executive Team has decided to move our primary concert and broadcast date to December 8, 2007. On December 8th, more nations declared war on each other (World War II) than on any other date in modern history. December 8th is also the date that one of the great messengers of peace, John Lennon, departed our world tragically. "All we are saying. is give Peace a chance." 
Note: Mariah is among the artists  with a history of supporting humanitarian causes that will be invited to participate in the World Peace One™ event, so we will need to wait to see if Mariah will attend the event.

German fans don't be anxious about "M" in Germany
Helen e-mailed me to tell the release of the fragrance in Germany was speculation as she was in contact with the German distributor for Elizabeth Arden products (they have no EA company in Germany), she was told by a product manager they had no infos yet if the fragrance will be available in stores at all so far in Germany.
Guys, all I know is that the news I got and posted yesterday came directly from the head offices of Elizabeth Arden, so if this is speculation, will I need to call back the EA heads and tell them they are speculating?

Glamour Magazine - 10 Random Facts
Come on in! It’s Mariah’s house

The marble! The gold! The decor tricks you can steal! On the eve of her huge new album, surprisingly grounded superstar Carey opened her home and her heart to writer Carole Radziwill.
I have to confess: I had never met a diva before Mariah Carey. I wasn’t even sure what one was, so I looked it up. First definition: a woman of outstanding and rare singing talent. Second definition: someone who is difficult to deal with. I’d met plenty of second-definition divas but never an actual one, so, naturally, I had outfit angst. What do you wear to meet a woman who sings in octaves most of us barely know exist? A ball gown? No, too dressy, plus mine has a burn on the sleeve. Jeans? No, too disrespectful. Red lipstick? No, too much. I settled on white pants, an AC/DC concert T-shirt and Chanel lip gloss. Meanwhile, Mariah answered the door herself, low-key, in a ponytail and pink hoodie. So this, I thought, is a diva?

And after spending two hours chatting with her at Tommy Hilfiger’s beach house in East Hampton, New York, which Mariah had rented to work on her latest album (still unnamed as of press time), I realized the diva thing is only something we see on TV. In reality, this megastar was once a shy kid who was self-conscious about her multiracial identity, which marked her as different in the cookie-cutter suburbs of Long Island, New York, where she grew up. After what felt like a lifetime of hard knocks—her parents divorced when she was three years old and her mother moved the family from one place to another, sometimes barely making ends meet—she had her first best-selling album and her first seven-figure paycheck by 20, and a wedding train longer than Princess Di’s at 23. (She married Tommy Mottola, then chairman of her record label’s parent company, Sony Music, in 1993.) That may sound like a fairy tale, but Carey’s the first to scoff at those who say it was—she paid her own way to the ball!

Her marriage ended in divorce in 1998. Then, in 2001, Mariah checked herself into a hospital for exhaustion, creating a tabloid frenzy. But two months later she was onstage again, serenading the nation at the 9/11 “America: A Tribute to Heroes” telethon. Now, at 37, she’s sold 160 million albums worldwide, earned five Grammys and is tied for number-one hits in the United States with none other than Elvis Presley. Oh, and she launched her own M by Mariah Carey fragrance in September and is preparing for her new album tour. Privately, the star with a set of pipes and a sense of humor (she dubbed her home with ex Mottola “Sing Sing”) has created her own paradise in New York’s Tribeca neighborhood, where she moved in 2001. It’s a triplex penthouse apartment decorated in shades of gold and pink, with framed family snapshots covering practically every surface. At the photo shoot, Mariah gave me a complete home tour and opened up about everything from her obsession with lounge chairs to her dysfunctional childhood and her current love life.

Thank God, I told her, for that childhood. Had she grown up like every other girl on Long Island, she probably wouldn’t have had the ambition to make it so big.

Glamour: I watched you on YouTube last night, singing “America the Beautiful” at the NBA finals in 1990—one of your earliest TV appearances [at age 20].
Mariah Carey: I was a little malnourished, wasn’t I?

Glamour: Yes, you looked like you weighed 80 pounds. And most of that was hair.
MC: [Laughs.] Well, I did my own hair then. No one even knew who I was! I was such a little girl.

Glamour: How old were you when you got your first big paycheck?
MC: I was about 20. I went from having $5 to getting a publishing advance of $1 million.

Glamour: Tell me about your so-called Cinderella story.
MC: [Laughs.] When Tommy [Mottola] signed me, I had two other record deals pending. I had already put in the hard work and I had my life planned but nobody likes to talk about that. I guess fairy tales make better stories.

Glamour: Yes, they do. What advice would you give that little girl now? Or someone like Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears who always seems to be messing up?
MC: I wouldn’t want to speak to those people specifically, but I would say you need to be very centered, and spiritually know where you’re at, all the time. Don’t read the tabloids. Don’t be obsessed with what people are writing or saying. Live your life for you. My lifestyle has changed since making it. It’s not a financial struggle, but I’m still struggling in a lot of ways.

Mariah Carey & Mary J. Blige Clear Separate Lanes For Upcoming Releases
