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

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.

Mariah Carey fired Jermaine Dupri as her manager

Mariah Carey and Jermaine Dupri may have been friends for years and may even have made some pretty good songs together in the past. However, it seems his management skills leave something to be desired in Mimi’s world, because Jermaine’s out of a job less than a year after he started it. Oops!

From The San Francisco Gate:

A statement released by Dupri reads: “I’m a very hands-on person when it comes to my work. I put my all into every project. But when I’m not allowed to do what I do, then I know it’s time for me to move on. Mariah and I enjoy working together and will continue to make great music together in the future.”

Carey hired Dupri in the middle of production of her 14th studio album, “Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse,” which she had been working on for the past two years.

The record was finally released in May, but had a disappointing debut in the U.S. selling just 58,000 copies in the first week.

Carey had previously been managed by music veteran and former “American Idol” judge Randy Jackson

She has now reportedly hired Def Jam Recordings president Kevin Liles, who also manages Jay Z and Ludacris, to oversee her career, according to Billboard Magazine.

Oh, dear. I mean, look – Jermaine Dupri hasn’t been relevant since the late ’90s, so I don’t know what she was thinking hiring him to begin with. Apparently he had some homes in foreclosure and was tight on money, so maybe she was just being generous?

Whoever she gets on board next, I hope they’re good because I don’t want to see Queen Mariah go down like that.  Also, I can’t remember – has Jermaine always had a face like a smacked ass or is that a recent development?

Mariah Carey gets some serious Photoshop from Terry Richardson

Notorious pervert Terry Richardson is known for his point-and-shoot photography style, but that just won’t cut it when it comes to ultimate diva Mariah Carey, who will not allow unretouched photos of herself out in the wild.

Of course, Jezebel got a hold of the originals and the Photoshopped versions of her latest shoot with Terry and have pointed out just how much work has been done on them. It seems sorta obvious – of COURSE photos are retouched within an inch of their lives, especially if you’re working with really big stars. These don’t look too shocking, but check out some more behind the cut.
