September 2010 - Heroes of Mariah
Once again, this is for all the ones who bashed Mariah for her voice at MJ's memorial

Trey talks about Mariah & The Michael Jackson Memorial
Trey is hard at work for his first Gospel album, he took time to give an interview with BV Buzz

Before I let you go, you and Mariah recorded the smash single 'I'll Be There,' which is a remake of The Jackson 5 song. You two also sang that at Michael Jackson's memorial last year. What was that moment like for you?

- It was almost surreal and almost still feels like it never even happened. The crazy thing about it is that beforehand we were backstage and so many people kept coming by and speaking and then I went in the room with Mariah. Normally, we're just clowning, but since it was a memorial we had to be more serious and make it more geared toward Michael and that's how we kinda came up with the ending. Throughout this whole process no one came up to us to say that it was a funeral. We were thinking it was just a tribute. Usher was supposed to be there, Jennifer Hudson and those people. We just thought we were gonna be singing his songs so we'll do that. Then the curtain opened and it was a casket there it was just like whoa. Mariah couldn't even play it off because she was just choked up by the whole experience, which is understandable. I just remember that the casket was there. I hate singing at funerals period, but just imagine singing at one of your icon's funerals. It just doesn't seem like it happened, but it was an honor. I'm happy that I got to have that experience.

Mariah’s Last Stand: On Flats

A little more on Mariah Carey’s humorous fall on stage in Singapore.

Apparently she twisted her ankle in those high fashion boots. A friend told her she should have packed more sensible shoes. Mariah’s response: “I don’t have any!”

Now Mariah’s publicist, Cindi Berger, is sending her flats via Federal Express.

But still no one is saying anything about Mariah’s much rumored pregnancy. There’s always a chance that she is not pregnant, that her larger size is due to the process of trying to get pregnant–steroids, etc. What way to live, in a fishbowl. You wonder sometimes how people can take being observed and commented on constantly.

One thing about Mariah: she has a sense of humor. And to one commenter who wrote in about her voice: on the You Tube clips, to me, Mariah sounds just fine.

I know there are Madonna v. Mariah fanatics who want to start something but really: no one ever accused Madonna of being a great singer.

Mariah to host Nick's birthday parties
According to several sources (rumors) on the net, Mariah will host the two parties for Nick's 30 birthday.  One party will be held in New York on October 8 and the second one in Los Angeles on October 9.  It seems confirmed guest as of now include Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Will and Jada Smith, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, Kobe Bryant, Quincy Jones, L.A. Reid and Jamie Foxx

Rumor is that the parties will be a weird (smart) way to make money, Nick is looking for sponsors.  A one-sheet flier for the "Nick Cannon Birthday celebration hosted by Mariah Carey" offers sponsors the chance to pay $2,500 to be in the gift bag, while a $15,000 donation includes "one tweet" and "mention in all p.r. materials."
For $25,000 you can be a "host sponsor" which includes "three tweets," a "right to service out photos" and a "logo on all collateral.

Mariah in a wheelchair

The whole world laughed (including me) with Mariah's classic fall in Singapore thinking she wasn't hurt.  We are not gonna laugh anymore as Mariah IS hurted.
She was spotted at LAX in a wheelchair. My friend Nelson who attended the concert was very close and tells me Mariah actually asked the band to stop it, but the music was so loud and the back up vocalists kept singing, no one heard her, so it didnt stop!

Another David Morales Mariah Remix on the Way???
Long time Mariah friend & collaborator, David Morales, via Facebook, reveals that he has been asked to do another Mariah Carey remix:
"Had an amazing weekend in Brazil. On my way back to Camp David to work. Got a call from Mariah’s camp to do her next single. I love working with her. Hope we can make it happen between my album and the short amount of time I have before going to Asia next weekend"
Source: MariahConnection - Taz

Heroes note: Remember, last time David was asked to do a remix it was for Touch My Body but the project was scrapped as Mariah didn't had time to redo the vocals.  So, maybe this time..... (and I'm not even a Dance fan)

Don't make me say what I didn't say.......
Now that US fans are awake, I receive e-mails telling me I shouldn't encourage piracy, that's insane.  I don't encourage piracy, I'm just saying many international fans will not be able to afford the crazy prices people or even "fans" will ask on eBay (and many of us have been screwed already by eBay sellers).
It's weird US fans got 2 Tours, exclusive stuffs only available in the US and find a way to insult international fans for being disappointed.  Guys, I read your e-mails and my answer is here!  Hum.... weird, no one in their e-mails offered to help us buy the CD/DVD package (most of us have Paypal you know )

Major disappointment 
Many e-mails came in today from very disappointed fans (sometimes angry too).  Yes guys, I got official word that unfortunately the DVD will only be sold on HSN which is not available for international fans.  Why do I suddenly feel the soufflé has fallen? You know I'm totally against piracy, I never in my life pirated anything, it seems we will not have any other choice this time.......

Mariah in Singaporean press
Not many sites reports Mariah's concert (at lease as of now).  The following one is from Straits Times

F1 gigs raise the bar 
In more ways than one, singer Mariah Carey was the biggest star at the Singapore Grand Prix concerts at the Padang.

When she appeared on Sunday at 10.40pm, shortly after Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso won the Formula One night race, many fans remarked how her yo-yo-ing weight was on the heavy side at the moment. Carey, who is married to actor/host Nick Cannon, has yet to confirm rumours that she is pregnant but she did look heftier than in her publicity pictures.

That was not the only surprise. Diva reputation notwithstanding, Carey showed that she could laugh at herself. She tumbled and fell on her butt after the first few songs and immediately laughed it off, blaming her $10,000 high-heeled shoes, which her assistants helped her remove while she continued singing.

Later she joked: 'They call me a diva but I am pouring my own drink.' 

Truly, it was a night she was exceptionally chatty between songs. More importantly, she could still hit the high notes, no doubt pleasing the 35,000-strong crowd thronging the Padang on the final night of the F1 weekend.

The performances by Carey and other pop acts such as Adam Lambert and Missy Elliott within the circuit park from last Friday to Sunday were certainly among the biggest gigs in the local concert calendar this year. Especially since F1 Rocks, which brought in Beyonce last year, went missing in action.

Here's a scan from another newspaper (Lee!!!!! tell me which one )

Word is on the streets......
Rumors are flying around that L.A. Reid could leave Island Def Jam or may be fired, even if sources deny it.
It seems there are discussions with producers of both 'American Idol' and 'The X Factor' about him becoming a judge on one of the shows. A source close to the situation says that if 'X Factor,' which is produced by rival SONY, makes Reid a firm offer, he'll have to leave UNIVERSAL to take it." 

The report claims friction exists between REID and other top UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP executives over IDJMG's recent performance. 

Word is also on the streets that Mariah's manager, Chris Lighty, could have a job at Island Def Jam......

Angel Champagne
The re-branded Angel has just been released in the U.K.  In an interview earlier this week with U.K. trade publication the Drinks Business, Angel founder Stefano Zagni said that, after finding celebrity endorsements too pricey, he paid record label Island Def Jam for access to celebrity events. Those events included an anniversary party in Las Vegas for Carey and her husband, actor and musician Nick Cannon, at which Angel was poured. Zagni made Carey the new brand ambassador of Angel, which is now featured in several of Carey’s music videos, as well as those by fellow Def Jam artists Rihanna, Ne-Yo and Fabolous. 

London merchant Vanquish Wine held the official UK launch of Champagne’s most expensive brut NV, Angel, last week
The new prestige cuvée which costs £640 a bottle has the backing of pop singers Mariah Carey and Sinitta, entrepreneur Stefano Zagni, as well as the winemaking expertise of Patrick D'Aulan, from the former Piper Heidsieck owning family.

Having found that women in high-profile US bars and nightclubs weren’t finishing their glasses of the favoured luxury Champagne brand, Cristal, he wanted to make something with the perfect flavour profile for women. 

“I wanted to create the most amazing Champagne taste-wise but with a more feminine style,” he told the drinks business at the UK launch on Thursday 17 September.

He managed to enlist the help of D’Aulan, whose family had sold Piper Heidsieck in 1989, and then the marketing support of the record label group Island Def Jam.

“I wanted to create a vibe and buzz before launching the brand but the celebrities were charging too much, between US$2-3 million, so I approached the record labels,” he said. 

“I struck a deal with Island Def Jam that gave me access to celebrity events and the first one was Mariah Carey’s first wedding anniversary.”

According to Zagni, Carey “loved” the Champagne, which was served at the event in Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas on 30 April last year, and was excited by the name because her upcoming album would be called Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel. 

“After that I decided to give her a stake in the business and she is now a partner,” he stated. 

Zagni also said that the Champagne would not be sold in the off-trade but people would be able to buy the new cuvée for drinking at home through the brand's website. 

The Champagne has a starting price of £640 online and Zagni says that Angel’s target market – high profile nightclubs – will sell the Brut NV for £750. 

Angel has already launched in the US and has been taken on by North America’s largest distributor Southern Wines & Spirits. 

Zagni recalled that “There has been no resistance against the price,” which is upwards of US$900 in the nightclub market. 

So far Angel’s total production is 6,000 bottles, 5,000 of which are the brut NV, and 1,000 the vintage, which sells online for £800. 

Zagni hopes to increase that to 60-100,000 bottles and admitted that the US “could be taking 30 to 40,000 bottles fairly soon”.

Interestingly, Carey is not just involved in the promotion of the brand, but also the taste profile. 

“We sent every three months a range of samples for her to choose the colour and then the taste,” recalled d’Aulan, who points out that Angel will add a rosé to its UK line-up at then end of 2012.

“She likes a lighter style and colour,” he says, and also notes that Angel may halve its dosage to 3 g/l and increase the time spent ageing in cellar. 

“For someone who never really drinks she knows exactly what she wants: she is very clear about what she wants in life,” d’Aulan also said of Carey. 

Upcoming additions to the range include a jeroboam and a special edition rosé called Hint of Pink by MC.

Mariah's Merry Christmas II You In-Stores November 2 

As autumn leaves begin to fall, interna­tional superstar Mariah Carey puts the finishing touches on MERRY CHRISTMAS II YOU, her second career album of holiday tunes, arriving November 2nd on the Island Def Jam Music Group.  Highlighting the long-awaited new album is a brand new recording of Mariah's all-time standard, "All I Want For Christmas Is You." 

 In addition to traditional yuletide fare - "The First Noel,"  "Little Drummer Boy," "O Little Town of Bethlehem," "O Come All Ye Faithful" and more - MERRY CHRISTMAS II YOU also contains four original songs composed by Mariah, including the new single, "Oh Santa," and many more surprises for the fans.  Producers on the new album include American Idol's Randy Jackson, multi-platinum hit-making producer Jermaine Dupri, James Poyser (acclaimed producer for Aretha Franklin, The Roots, Lauryn Hill and more), and five-time Oscar nominee and Grammy/Tony/Emmy award winning composer Marc Shaiman. 

Since it was first released, "All I Want For Christmas Is You," written by Mariah Carey and Walter Afanasieff, has become one of the essential musical hallmarks of the holiday season, and continues to set sales records each year.  The song hit #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles Recurrents chart every year from 2005 to 2008.  After ringtones began to be charted in 2006, "All I Want For Christmas Is You" hit #1 for the next three consecutive holiday seasons.  It became the first seasonal Mastertone to be certified RIAA gold (2006) and RIAA platinum (2007), and is ranked as the top-selling seasonal ringtone of all-time."All I Want For Christmas is You" was the featured single from MERRY CHRISTMAS, which has sold over 12 million to date. 

MERRY CHRISTMAS II YOU is Mariah Carey's 13th studio album, and follows up her worldwide multi-million-selling Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel (released September 2009), her multi-platinum E=MC? (2008), and worldwide 10 million selling The Emancipation Of Mimi (2005).  The Emancipation Of Mimi generated three Grammy awards (including Best Contemp­orary R&B Album), two #1 singles, and countless more honors during its 18-month chart stay.  Soundscan's biggest-selling album of 2005, Mimi featured "We Belong Together" (Grammy winner for Best Female R&B Vocal and Best R&B Song) and "Don't Forget About Us," Mariah's 16th and 17th  #1 career singles respectively.  They tied one of the most enduring chart records in Billboard Hot 100 history, Elvis Presley's 17 #1's. 

Three years later, Mariah surpassed Elvis when "Touch My Body" (from E=MC?) became her 18th #1 Hot 100 hit.  "Touch My Body" spent two weeks at the top, Mariah's 78th and 79th cumulative career weeks at #1, which tied Elvis' long-standing all-time high of 79 weeks at #1, as calculated by Billboard.  Mariah is now positioned as the only active recording artist in the 52 years of the Hot 100 (which began in 1958) with the potential to surpass the Beatles' all-time high of 20 #1 hits.  The success of E=MC? brought total sales of Mariah's albums, singles and videos to more than 200 million worldwide, distancing her even further from the pack as the top-selling female recording artist in history.

Here we go again......
We all know how obsessed Eminem was with Mariah, after his last diss track featured on his new album released early June, he claimed in August he will not diss Mariah anymore: 
"You know what? I got to be honest. I really don’t want to talk about her anymore only just because it’s kind of like the last thing I said about her was on “Cold Wind Blows.” I made the comment "Take a look at Mariah next time I inspire you to write a song.". I don’t want to keep beating a dead horse. I’m not even going to comment about it. I’m done with that whole situation. I said what I had to say. I’m done."

"I don't want to keep beating a dead horse", c'mon clown that's a diss and a big one!

Anyway, Nick just released a track dissing Eminem, the track is called " I'm a Slick Rick" and it goes hard on Eminem.  The war is not over, dunno if it's a good idea just when Mariah is ready to release new material, but who am I to know when the time is right or not when it comes to defend your wife?

Am I the only one already feeling Christmas in the air ?????? 
Wondering what happened to this.... 
In 2007, we got the first infos and in 2008 Mariah herself talked about it:

"Mariah Carey is also developing a movie musical based on her colossal-selling Christmas album. 

It's about a town outside a city - perhaps not unlike Mariah's hometown of Huntington, L.I. - where a ruthless developer wants to turn it into one big mall.

"Mariah doesn't want to let that happen," says her producing partner Benny Medina. "Her character uses song and love to keep the Christmas spirit alive." 

Mariah says the script, which "High School Musical" writer Peter Barsocchini is working on, is still in the early stages. But she tells us, "Since I recorded the Christmas album, I've always wanted to make a movie to go with it, something that people could watch and hear and enjoy every year. I'm into it. I'm all about the holiday season."

Two song titles have leaked!
I know all people who were at the recording session were bounded to secrecy, however someone doesn't seem to know what "secrecy" means.  Two song titles have leaked, hopefully Mariah and her peeps will find out who that person was (there are not thousands ). 
Don't get me wrong, I'm excited like everyone of you, it's just that I can't stand people who don't respect their contract and this way can harm someone's work, if that person was in the army he would be accused of Espionage Act 

Anyway, thanks to Mariah Daily Journal we get some infos:

Last Friday night, August 27, Mariah had a big session with a full live band at Fox Studios in Los Angeles, California recording 5 holiday songs - 2 new and 3 traditional songs!

The two new and original Christmas songs, both co-written with Marc Shaiman of Broadway's Hairspray fame are:
- "Christmas Time Is In The Air Again"
- "One Child" 

"Chistmas Time Is In The Air Again" has been described as "a really nice mid-tempo number."

Album title revealed: "Merry Christmas II You" + DVD ?
Rap-Up got the exclusivity!
Mariah Carey will be delivering a bundle of joy this holiday season. The sequel to the pop songbird’s Christmas album has been given an official title and due date. has exclusively learned that Mimi’s upcoming holiday project will be calledMerry Christmas II You. The II represents the follow-up to 1994’s multi-platinum Merry Christmas album, which spawned the now-classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” The new offering is scheduled for a November 2 release and will include original material as well as covers of holiday classics.

An accompanying DVD will also be released the same day, but there are currently no details on what exactly it will contain. The packaging was shot in the spring by famed photographer David LaChapelle and features a festive setting with fake snow, tinsel, and wooden reindeers.

It's Christmas album time for several other artists
Mariah will not be the only one to release a Christmas album. Of course, we, as fans, are only interested in Mariah's one, but the sales will maybe suffer as other artists will also release Christmas records.  I personally don't care that much about sales anymore (well, still a little as we all like to see Mariah on top), but after what we experienced it with E-MC² and Memoirs, we now unfortunately know not all Mariah fans buy her albums, but Mariah and the label do care.

Other artists set to release a Christmas album:
- Katharine Mc Phee
- Jessica Simpson
- Susan Boyle (that album will be one for sure in the US and the UK)
- Annie Lennox (could be successful in Europe)
- Michael Bublé 
Any others?????  Oh, I almost forgot, apparently IDJ got the awesome idea to release Rihanna's new album on Nov. 2, not that she will make shadow to Mariah's album, but still.........

European fans, you can also order the fragrances on that site, but the shipping costs are very expensive.

Waiting for Mariah to confirm
I wasn't planning to post the rumor as it's 2 years medias keep saying Mariah is pregant and it's sensitive to talk about pregnancy, but as Nick keeps going on I may aswell post the Billboard (Juice) article and I'll wait until Mariah confirms it herself to burst out of joy!

Mariah Carey Pregnancy (All But) Confirmed
Sources close to the couple have confirmed to the Juice that Carey is indeed pregnant. So let me be the first to extend a warm, though unofficial congratulations to the future mommy and daddy!

Although folks around them are bursting to speak openly about the bundle of joy, it might be a while before the pair officially announce being with baby. Just a few days after Mariah thanked fans for their "well wishes," saying, "When the time is right, everyone will know" via her Twitter account, her husband continued to be cryptic about the pregnancy. "I think 'superstitious' is the wrong word... I think it's more a spiritual thing," he told yesterday (Aug. 30). "She wants to keep as much privacy as she possibly can."

Don't expect Mariah to keep her privacy for too long, though. I hear that she is four months pregnant already, meaning she won't be able to hide the baby bump for much longer. That also means she's  past the first trimester, or as Cannon put it to Us, the "certain time limit you're supposed to wait before you can actually officially say that you are [pregnant] and all that stuff."

To further juice up the speculations, a video clip of Mariah performing in São Paulo, Brazil, surfaced online last week, in which her belly is visibly more round than I remember.

No matter how long it is until a formal announcement is made, we wish the Carey-Cannons a wonderful term and a beautiful and healthy baby.
