Mariah Carey “accidentally” caught on tape hitting that high note

mariah carey

Live performances haven’t necessarily been going too well for Mariah Carey lately – she’s been bombing in concert, on live TV, you name it. But just because Mariah’s voice isn’t quite what it used to be doesn’t mean she can’t still sing. In fact, she’s apparently been killing it during a series of New York City concerts this past week and also, oh, she was “accidentally” caught on tape doing vocal exercises and hitting that high as hell note she’s most well known for:


4th show! Chopsticks???

It’s sad as hell that Mariah, who is an actual diva in every sense of the world, feels desperate enough to prove that she’s still got it that she’ll stage a fake ass “surprise” video. I mean, those acting skills? Stop. Ariana Grande must really have her shook! Ha!


Starting now!!!

Mariah Carey better start wishing for more at Christmas

mariah carey

I grew up absolutely idolizing Mariah Carey. I had every single album on cassette, I knew every word to ever song, I loved her. She was an amazing singer and there was no one else like her. Then she divorced Tommy Mottola and started exploring more than straight pop. I was on board! ‘Shake It Off’ and ‘We Belong Together’ are two of the most amazing songs ever.

However, they still don’t compare to her earlier work – especially ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’. Everyone knows and loves that song. Seriously, everyone in the world, even if they hate Christmas or don’t celebrate Christmas or whatever. The song is an earworm and it’s amazing. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Mariah’s live performance of the beloved track on the televised lighting of the tree at Rockefeller Center.

I won’t spoil you too much, but she basically missed every single high note, was all over the place pitch-wise and it was just a hot mess. It wasn’t her worst live performance by far, but oh man, it wasn’t good. Here ya go:

There was also apparently a lot of drama surrounding this performance because Mariah was actually due to pre-tape her performance but turned up three hours late since she was on the phone to her divorce attorney for a long ass time, so network execs sent her home and she eventually decided to wing it and do it live. Props for that, but I can see why they wanted to pre-tape…

Mariah Carey wants Nas to set her up on a date

Mariah Carey has only been separated from Nick Cannon for a few months now (that we know of), but she’s already ready to move on – makes sense, especially if her hints about his cheating ways are at all true. So how will she find her next partner/short-term fling? Well, she’s hoping Nas will help her!

From US Weekly:

The pop diva “texted Nas, wondering if he had any friends she could go out with — or even just hook up with,” the insider says. “But Nas is nervous to introduce her to anyone.”

Carey and the hip-hop star have been friends for years, and even collaborated on the song “Dedicated,” the third track on her not-so-successful 2014 album Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse. Rumors swirled in 2013 that the two were getting a little too close, but Cannon himself shut them down during an interview with Howard Stern earlier this year.

“[Nas is] a friend of mine, he’s a friend of hers,” the America’s Got Talent host said in April, pre-split. “She went to his birthday party, and I think it was in L.A. We actually talked about this before. It’d be very difficult to make me jealous.”

No one cares, Nick Cannon. It’s good that you were secure in your marriage while it was happening – but then if you were the one being unfaithful, I suppose you would be.

In any case, you wouldn’t think Mariah would need help meeting someone new, but asking Nas is so random. Whatever – get yours, girl!

Did Nick Cannon cheat on Mariah Carey?

Mariah Carey has been having a tough time in Japan in more ways than one, it seems. After kicking off her tour in Tokyo last weekend, things started going downhill quickly. Her voice started going, and she dropped some hints during a cover of Billie Holiday’s ‘Don’t Explain’ that soon-to-be ex-husband Nick Cannon may have cheated on her.

In an audio recording from the show, you can hear her change the lyrics to “I know you cheated, motherf–ker,” instead of “And I know you cheat / Right or wrong, don’t matter.”

To be honest, I can’t imagine who would want Nick Cannon’s corny ass, but I guess to each her own.

Audio recording is over at TMZ, if you’re interested. But what do you think – did Nick cheat on her? Who with?

Mariah Carey seems to be losing her voice

mariah carey

Mariah Carey is an absolute legend with a voice that is known and loved around the world. That’s why it absolutely pains me to hear things like her performance at a concert in Japan this weekend. I don’t know if she’s just ill or maybe overly stressed or something, but it was… not good, and that’s an understatement. In fact, it was downright painful to watch.

During ‘Always Be My Baby’, those high notes she’s known for just weren’t coming, and she’s been absolutely panned online ever since. I feel sorta bad for Mariah – she’s trying to hold onto what she once had, but if her voice is starting to go, homegirl needs to retire on a high note and let us remember the good times, because this just isn’t right. She forgot the words to some songs (or so it seemed), the mic stand broke… it was just all around disastrous.

Ariana Grande loves being compared to Mariah Carey

ariana grande

Ariana Grande is so full of shit, she could fertilize a ten acre farm. Anyone who interviews her not only can’t photograph her from anything but her left side, but there’s also a list of topics she won’t talk about, like her grandfather’s recent death and all those Mariah Carey comparisons. But hey, just because she throws diva tantrums and won’t let you talk about how she’s compared to Mariah doesn’t mean she doesn’t just totally love those comparisons!!!!

From US Weekly:

“Mariah has been a huge influence on me since I was a little girl,” the new Wat-Aah! water bottle spokeswoman exclusively tells Us Weekly. “I’ve even done a cover of one of her songs. I don’t think there are any negatives to being compared to one of the greatest vocalists of all time. It’s honestly a great honor.”

Nope, sorry, not buying it. Obviously you wouldn’t want the comparison to take over your career or what you’re trying to do now, but you wouldn’t outlaw it as an interview question if you were so down-to-earth and loving it. You would confront the question and say that you’re honoured, but you also want to follow your own artistic path and hope that you can grow beyond that.

Let’s all just be real with each other for five seconds – Ariana Grande is no Mariah Carey and never will be. Yeah, she can sing, but she wastes it on shitty collaborations and can’t stand on her own. Seriously, the solo songs on her album are a total disaster. Mariah was solo 100% and killed it every single time. In fact, her rare duets were some of the worst songs she did (not you, ‘One Sweet Day’ – never you), so she can just sit down now.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are getting a divorce

mariah carey nick cannon

Well, you’ve got to give them credit – Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon‘s marriage did last six years longer than I expected it to (hint: they’ve been married for six years). However, now the jig is up and following revelations that they’ve been living apart for months, it seems they’re actually getting a divorce. Oh, and Mariah’s already made sure that Nick can’t flap his gums about a single word of it.

From TMZ:

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ … Nick and Mariah’s lawyers hashed out a confidentiality agreement as part of their divorce … and it’s completely one-sided.

Nick is barred from saying anything about the split.  If he does, there are severe financial penalties. But Mariah has the right under the agreement to announce the split on her terms.

Nick is clearly following orders … check out the video from NYC Thursday — he zipped it.

Nick is allowed to say they’re now living separately … which he’s already done.  But he cannot say anything about the divorce.

Damn, that’s rough – but maybe for good reason. After all, why does any of this need to be discussed in detail publicly? Can’t the details of their relationship be just that – THEIR relationship, i.e. private?

Ah well, can’t win ‘em all. I’m sure the kids will be just fine and well taken care of, so long as this shit doesn’t get ugly, and I hope it won’t.
