Sexy Mariah 'rains' supreme as she shoots new video 
By Bill Hoffmann
Comeback kid Mariah Carey, who suffered a devastating mental meltdown last year, was all smiles yesterday as she filmed a new music video along Park Avenue South in the city. Looking smokin' hot, the sexy pop princess strutted back and forth in a thigh-baring skirt and ultratight top that had male onlookers on fire. The video, directed by David Meyers, is for her new song, "Through the Rain," in which she bares her soul about her past problems and her hopes for the future. Appearing confident and carefree, Mariah seemed like her old self as she happily waved to fans who stopped to watch. It's been a tough haul for the perky hitmaker who delivered eight chart-topping albums and 25 singles in just 10 years - and then had a nervous breakdown in July 2001. In the weeks leading up to that collapse, fans had listened in sadness as Mariah left a series of rambling and unfocused phone messages on her official Web site. Not helping her situation was disastrous starring role in the movie "Glitter" and a bad breakup with Latin pop sensation Luis Miguel. Mariah was also dumped by her label, Virgin, who paid off her long-term contract to get rid of her. But she's been determined to bounce back, and now with a new label, Island/Def Jam, and new album on the way, she may be able to do just that. "Through the Rain," released to radio stations last Thursday, has already gotten good reviews from fans and deejays.

Mariah Carey with Johannes B. Kerner

The most important quotes of the Pop Queen 
For the first time world star Mariah Carey spoke so openly in a German Talkshow about her private life! 
27.09.2002 
The world star chatted on Friday, 27 September 2002, for about 40 minutes with Johannes B. Kerner. Read here their most important quotes again:
Mariah Carey over the death of her father
"The death of my father - that was a very hard time for me. I went straight to the mourning service. That was several weeks ago now. I think of him. We were not very close for a while, but then that changed. We became very close the last few years. That he died, was a shock for me. He had cancer. He was not operable any more. He died on July the 4th, on the American Independence Day. He wanted liberty and he died on the Independence Day. We were able to became friends a short time before he died, I'm very lucky and I am grateful that I had this opportunity."

Over her marriage with Tommy Mottola
"There was a very big passion between us. For me it was overwhelming. But I was never someone who should be married. My parents got separated when I was little. I did not want to be crushed, I still wanted to be with my friends, I wanted to do the things I like. I do not have anything against him. But I made it in such a way, because he wanted that." "Okay, we have stop a big wedding: 'but I did too, if you want' It would have kept longer, if we had not married. I was not so far and did not want to be someone's wife, those time were nice and I was protected by a 50 year old man. In the garden, I did not sit with the adults. We had a marriage contract. I did not leave with anything - only what I had before."

Over her nervous breakdown
"I was at the end. The whole 'nervous breakdown' to call it like that was totally exaggerated. The following happened to me: I worked two months straight, 20 hours a day without break. If you make that longer and not reasonably eats and sleeps, you do not hold out. Simply only work. I left Sony at that time. I had the new company and not yet the support around me. I did not have the people around me, which said: ' Mariah, you worked now 14 hours on the piece. As it would be now with something to the meal?' I simply forget that. I did not to worry anyone about me, and I also. I neglected myself. The star was for me  in the foreground. But I neglected the human in me, no question. And then I was so exhausted and finished that my physical health was at the end. I was finished. No one understood that. Nevertheless always there was Mariah - full energy. When I visited my mother, I was so finished. I had no more energy at all. And I was physically finished. I begun to be scared and therefore I called 911. That's the whole story. My mother did not know, how she should react with the fact that I was suddenly weak." 

What she learned from her defeat
"I now have a contract locked: sound as I need much sleep, to relax and eat. You must regulate that somehow. I even make contracts and I force myself to keep them. I really thank God for everything that I had experienced. I am now a much more  spiritual person. I went through and come through and I learned very much about me. For example, what you may not allow for yourself. We must actually take our position for ourselves. Also with my father this year. I learned, how valuable the life is and how quickly it can go away. I am different than one year ago. I have priorities: Camera and Hollywood are one - the music business. But the most important is not in the life. Humans are much more important. Humans are more important than career!"

Mariah Fan Events
From October 7th to October 16th, Mariah will be visiting radio stations across the US. Each evening, there are plans to create listening events for members of the Mariah fan club and Online Street Team. These will be intimate events, likely at the hotel where Mariah is staying and Mariah will be a part of this. In addition, there is also discussion of making the NYC event on the 8th larger. In either case, these events could be utilized as contest opportunities to get your partners involved early - radio, online, etc. Obviously, this timeframe is quickly approaching. We will provide details on the NYC event once things are confirmed. Here is the working itinerary for these fan events:
Oct. 7th: Boston - Oct. 8th New York City (* may become larger) - Oct. 9th: Wash DC - Oct. 10th: Atlanta - Oct. 11th: Miami - Oct. 14th: Chicago - Oct. 15th: Minneapolis - Oct. 16th: Los Angeles.

Mariah Carey Not Afraid To Continue Hip Hop Collaborations
This week's CHR Special, 'CHR: Real Time', has an exclusive interview with Mariah Carey, where she's asked if she every feels like she stepped over the line with hip-hop and blew off some of her core fans. "I will always sing ballads, but I will not be afraid to continue to do new collaborations in hip-hop or whatever the musical genres I choose," Carey said. "That's my right as an artist, anything else would be boring as hell."

7 is a lucky number for R&B stars 
By Melanie McFarland
Seattle Times staff reporter
There was a time when pop-music producers were cloaked behind the musician's screen. Only the most devoted fans and avid combers of Rolling Stone knew the names making the stars shine. The rest of us just jammed out to the tunes. No longer - not since P. Diddy was known as Sean "Puffy" Combs. These days The Neptunes, Rockwilder, Jermaine Dupri and Missy Elliot are held in the same high regard as the artists to whom they've lent their golden touch - Mary J. Blige, Tweet and Jay-Z among them. The hot production crew right now is Irv Gotti's Murder Inc. But the bigger news is that Murder's hottest star, 7 Aurelius, is rising in his own right. 7 is the man behind the catchy pop tunes on R&B artist Ashanti's debut album, a CD that has made her one of the hottest divas of the past year. He's polished tracks for Ja Rule, J. Lo, Eve and Janet Jackson, and has a reputation for combining melodious bubbly pop music with a sexy, jagged edge. He is also very confident of his talents. Just to prove he's got chutzpah, he's even working with the more notorious luminaries in R&B. His highest-profile client other than Jackson? The flighty Mariah Carey. Next up with him in the studio: Whitney Houston. And to lacquer his image as a risk-taker, he's even gone on record with The Associated Press, saying he'd like to sign "American Idol's" eliminated Pink doppelganger, Nikki McKibbin, to his new label, The Seventh Sign. Talk about testing your Midas touch. Whether he sets a gold standard, well, that's something to watch for in the coming year. Don't be surprised if 2003 is the magic number for 7.

Why Ben, why?
Here's what we read on abstracts.net:
Star magazine reports that Jennifer Lopez was shocked to learn boyfriend Ben Affleck owned several Mariah Carey albums. J.Lo rolled her eyes and asked Ben, "Do you really LIKE these?" Ben squirmed his way out of the situation saying they were gifts. While Lopez left it go, friends of Affleck say she would hit the roof if she knew he used to play Carey's music all the time.

Mariah's New Album will be absolutely successful in Japan.
In Japan, the song used for the theme song of TV drama makes surely big sales record. AIWFCIY was used for the theme song of TV drama  of Japan in 1994, and made big sales record. It was decided that her TTR will be used for the theme song of TV drama of Japan which will start this autumn in October. It is certain that the sales results of the album and single make about the same good sales record as MUSIC BOX by this good news. We believe that Mariah continues shining glitteringly forever in Japan.

Mariah Carey's Next Movie Headed For Pay Cable

Mariah Carey's next film is about to make its debut, but don't go looking for it in theaters "Wisegirls" will debut on Cinemax. Part crime drama, part chick flick, "Wisegirls" premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January to rave reviews, in contrast to the widely panned "Glitter." Carey, Oscar winner Mira Sorvino and Melora Walters portray three young waitresses who work in an Italian "family-run" restaurant, whose clientele includes more Mafia members than a "Godfather" movie. Carey's character, Rachel, considers herself more of a hardened vet at dealing with the wise guys and takes under her wing the new and somewhat naive Meg, played by Sorvino. "When I read the script, I didn't realize what this character was going to do for me," Carey said. "I actually liked the other two characters better. It was going to be really challenging to play this type of character. But I thought she was really funny. Rachel is really the type that takes control during a situation that's frightening. Rachel's kind of the only one of these three characters who grew up with these guys, and so the reason she can be so free and so daring in ways is that to them, she's one of them." "You know, she's frigging Rachel," Carey added, slipping into a Staten Island accent. "She talks like this. She's yippety-yappety all over the place. She kind of loves to take control, whateva." One of the scenes Carey enjoyed most included her character getting an ovation for her handling a drunken customer. "A character we have named Johnny the Lush, who gets a little affectionate when he drinks, has kind of grabbed me in a place I didn't want to be grabbed," Carey said of the scene. "I don't want to be grabbed anyway, so I get to drop his tray and tell him off and kick him out of the restaurant." Carey's whirlwind schedule at the time of filming "Wisegirls" contributed to her exhaustion last summer, she said. "Wisegirls" started filming in May 2001 and wrapped in July, the same month as her breakdown (see "Mariah Carey Had 'Breakdown,' Her Publicist Says"). Lions Gate Films had intended to release the film in theaters but sold broadcast rights to HBO (which owns Cinemax) this past spring. For her next film, Carey re-teamed with "Wisegirls" co-producer Anthony Esposito for "Sweet Science," in which she plays a boxing manager (see "Despite 'Glitter,' Mariah Carey's Movie Career Could Still Sparkle"). "It's been great for me," Carey said, "just to come into it as an actor and go forth and feel and to be creative and to express another side of my creative self. It's been the most freeing experience." "Wisegirls" debuts October 19 at 10 p.m.

Mariah Carey Makes It 'Through The Rain'
The first single released from Mariah Carey's as-yet-untitled new MonarC Music/Island Records studio album will be "Through The Rain." The soaring ballad was produced by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis and mixed by Steve Hodge and Alex Richbourgh at Flyte Tyme Studios. The track is due to go to radio September 27, but New York's Z100 (WHTZ) has already aired it. Thematically, Carey's comeback ballad is slightly reminiscent of Barry Manilow's 1981 top-10 single, "I Made It Through The Rain," but that's pretty much where any comparison with Manilow ends. Carey's vocals shine though in the hook of the song, where she proclaims, "I can make it through the rain/I can stand up once again on my own/And I know that I'm strong enough to mend/And every time I feel afraid/I hold tighter to my faith/And I live one more day/And I make it through the rain." Carey's full-length album is scheduled for release on December 10.

Black day for "Through The Rain"
"Through The Rain" is in download on some Mariah "fan" sites.  I'm sad, disappointed, disgusted.  I'm feeling bad.  Mariah worked so much and today she's betrayed by some of her "fans".  It hurts!
Today, they burned the wings of the butterfly. 

Jour noir pour "Through The Rain"
"Through The Rain" est en download sur certains sites de "fans" de Mariah.  Je suis triste, déçu, dégouté.  Je me sens mal.  Mariah a tant travaillé et aujourd'hui elle est trahie par certains de ses "fans".  Cela fait mal !
Aujourd'hui, ils ont brûlé les ailes du papillon. 

Zwarte dag voor "Through The Rain"

Mariah returns to her roots
MARIAH Carey isn't taking any chances when she releases her new single Through The Rain in November. The song is a ballad along the lines of her breakthrough Vision of Love. Producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, who wrote the song, have focused Mariah back on the sound of her most successful era after the disastrous Glitter album two years ago. According to Jimmy Jam "Through The Rain is a Star Search ballad about making it through a storm", something Mariah can easily equate to her life in recent years. Jam and Lewis have produced 5 songs on the upcoming album including an uptempo dance number titled 'Yours'. Jimmy Jam says "Yours is supermelodic love song that you can bounce to or groove to." Mariah recorded 20 songs for the album in very comfortable surroundings on the Isle of Capri in the Mediterranean off the coast of Italy. The album will be released in December on her own label MonarC Music.

"I feel extraordinary about being on the Mariah Carey record, because she only works with selective rappers from what I've seen, and this is way before I got signed," he said. "You can just tell that she tries to pick out the ones that are in the streets heavy, or the ones that are really popular, or a combination of both. So any time you see a rapper on her record, you can tell that either she has put a lot of thought into it or her crew has put a lot of thought into it. Like, 'We need this person to balance off this side of it.' You have the commercialized side of things and you have the street side of things. She's trying to capture a different audience, and so maybe by her getting me for a song I felt privileged, because they knew I have a certain audience that they want to capture. She picked us because of the 'What's Your Fantasy?' song. And she got a lot of money, too. So it was good breaking bread with Mariah Carey and drinking Cristal in the studio. She's a real down-to-earth person, and I really hope to work with her again."

From nice to naughty
When Mariah Carey first hit the music scene she was the quintessential girl next-door. Her hair was bleach free and curly, her make-up pretty and natural and her clothes flirty but demure. It was an image controlled by her then record label boss and husband, Tommy Mottola. From the beginning he told her what to sing, how to dress and how to wear her hair. "My image was supposed to be non-image," Mariah commented a year after breaking up with the music mogul. "That's why I was in a field wearing a flannel shirt with cut-offs and sneakers - girls could relate to that. And yes, that was part of my life, but ever since I've been 12 years old, it was just in me to want to be someone who could change their look and look glamorous." And what a difference a year makes. With the help of stylist Tonjua Twist, Mariah switched from good girl to raunchy diva. Out went to laid-back look and in came to micro skirts and low-cut tops. "Before, Mariah looked sexy, naive and young. Now, she's not bubblegum, she's adventurous," said Tonjua. From there the sexy star bleached and straightened her hair and started wearing even less, stepping out in tiny bikinis. In Spain she once posed for fans wearing only a tasseled white bikini - wrapping her legs around her boyfriend at the time Luis Miguel to ensure the pics made news around the world. And while she may now be single, her holiday snaps are just as saucy.
Mariah won't cover up
Just a week after her new record label asked her to dress more conservatively, Mariah Carey showed off her wears on the Mediterranean island of Capri, where she's recording her new album. The troubled songstress, who suffered a nervous breakdown last year, took to the beach in a tiny white bikini, complete with matching sarong. And there was even more skin on show at her palatial apartment overlooking the sea. Hoping in the jacuzzi, Mariah, 32, whipped off her top and made a phone call. Then, conversation over, it was time to model more teeny outfits. Taking a break from the studio, Mariah pulled on a red bikini, adding an off-the-shoulder red top, sarong and heels. Completely the raunchy look was an ankle bracelet and belly chain. The singer even customised her gym gear to show off her belly. Dressed in a pair of blue shorts, she tied her T-shirt up while puffing away on her exercise bike. The flashy fashion parade came just days after Lyor Cohen, president of her new record label Island/Def Jam, told Mariah to tone down her look. "If you have a magnificent voice and you write such compelling songs, why are you dressing like that?" Lyor asked the belly-baring diva. But as our pictures show, his words have fallen on deaf ears. And we're betting Mariah will stick to the formula that has already earned her $600 million and resulted in 13 US No 1 hits and more than 100 million album sales worldwide. She is currently working on her new record, her first since signing a $39 million deal with Island/Def Jam in May - four months after EMI dropped her when her last album bombed. It's hoped Mariah's new material will mark a triumphant comeback for the star, who only last year tried to kill herself after breaking up with Latin pop singer Luis Miguel. She was also panned by critics and audiences alike for her role in the film Glitter. A year on, however, with the bad times behind her, the Mariah of old appears to have returned.

She's back, and she's gonna make it after all

Due Out: December 10th.
Sound: Vintage Mariah. Returning after the crash and burn of last year's Glitter, Carey refocuses on songs that emphasize her vocal command. "Yours' is a "supermelodic love song that you can bounce to or groove to," according to producer Jimmy Jam, who worked on five Carey tracks with his partner, Terry Lewis. "Through the Rain," Jam says, is "a Star Search ballad about making it through the storm." A Woman with a purpose: "She comes in very well-informed and knows what she's looking to do," says Jam. "We'd site in a room and I'd play keyboards, and if she said, "That was nice,' we'd go back and forth on it." Meanwhile, Carey jetted off to Italy, where she recorded her vocals. So Fresh and So Clean: So how does a dive dress when she's in the studio? "She'd come in wearing jeans and tank tops," says Jam. "But she always looks great, she always smells great. I'm a happily married guy, but it doesn't hurt. This business is all about inspiration.
