Blind Items Revealed

October 16, 2013

This A+ list diva is millions of dollars over budget for her latest record and it also sounds like crap. She needs to go back in the studio to fix it but can't find the time energy or voice to do it. Look for it to be delayed yet again. It won't end up in the trash but most people would put it there right now if they listened to it.

Mariah Carey

Welp, guess we now what the hold up is, sad

Violet said...

Mind, I'm not sure I know one single person who would actually buy a Mariah Carey album. I realise she's A+ but are there people who would declare themselves MC fans?

fontlover said...

Don't believe any of this shit, Mariah is a performance athlete! It's delayed because the woman has kids and a life and more going on in a day then most people have in a week. She's making art and that doesn't happen quickly.

Violet said...

A MC fan!! Delete my last post!

Steampunk Jazz said...

I'm surprised anyone releases albums anymore...
Wouldn't it be cheaper to just record a few sings and bust ass promoting them?
( I know nothing about music industry needs, the players behind and in front of the scene...or anything, really. I punch a button on a box...:-D

Lucas said...

Oh, Mimi. I'll help you get your mojo back, boo. Call me.

Chrystal said...

I'm a "LAMB" I love me some MC...also sort of new here..HI GUYS!

a non a miss said...

Mimi doesnt have her voice anymore but has plenty of fans.

Why doesn't she tour, ever?

Seven of Eleven said...

Wasn't Mariah the answer to a BI about going to help at a children's charity undercover? I will love her forever for that. And her daughter's specs.

I love Mariah Carey's voice, I really do. I once mentioned to a friend, who is a trained opera singer, that Mariah's voice is wasted on pop music. She laughed and said that body would be wasted on the opera stage.

Renoblondee said...

I just cannot get over what an idiot she was on AI. Sorry.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Hey Chrystal, welcome to the weekend warriors! We are the No WiFi stiffs that lurk afterwards ( unless we get a midweek day off :-D )
We have some of the weekday guys here today!
Hi TTM, violet, Lucas and Count...

Steampunk Jazz said...

Hey reno, hey seven, I thought she did well considering I never watched the show.. I mean, No explosion, no fits pitched, Seacrest got the was out of his panties...
That other judge may have been better and more helpful but she kept interrupting the icy Champers buzz/oxy mix Marian was using to swallow her pride...

Lord Disick said...

I can see if my boy Kanye wants to duet with her

Seven of Eleven said...

@Steampunk :D

TalksTooMuch said...

Hey Steamy! Yay for additional child care!

Sherry said...

Morning to all, Chrystal welcome, Hey Steampunk, Seven, Lord, Reno!still got snow?, Lucas baby!!

Guess MC's assistant is going by Fontlover? LOL! Busy mom with her children? Oh give me a break! I've seen more picture of her with her lately with her dog than with dem babies.

Sherry said...

Oops..Forgive me Violet for missing you..morning from the west coast at least.

TalksTooMuch said...

I'm right here, Sherry...awkward

fontlover said...

Sherry, I'm nobody's assistant. Never have been, never will be. I just recognize creativity, talent and genius when I see it. Mariah takes pictures with her kids all the time, she just doesn't post all of them. People in the public eye have to respect the needs of their kids (too many don't) so she releases just a few at a time. It's lose/lose, if she released more they'd she say she was using the kids, release less and she's never with them. SMDH

KhloeK said...

You guys should give Mimi a break. I personally know she devotes a lot of time to her kids & marriage. And how much time do you think it takes to look that gorg?

Renoblondee said...

Yep, still snow @Sherry. Should be gone this weekend. Finally!

Violet said...

Hey from cold, wet and windy North of England!
So pleased to see the MC fan club out in force today.

Seven of Eleven said...

Welcome, Chrystal! Yay for new lurkers coming out of the closet! :)

TalksTooMuch said...

Hey Chrystal!

I have Mariah's first big hit album and I remember I bought that album after she had her breakdown and it was damn good, but no doubt aided by the technology advances in the studio.

I have noticed though that when Mimi sings live and I believe that she was singing live on some of those occasions because she is now changing the notes in certain songs to lower notes. For whatever reason I don't think Mimi can hit the high notes anymore and I think this must be something she can't be happy about and hard to deal with. Not quite as devastating as Julie Andrews losing her singing voice after surgery though.

Lucas said...

Hey @Sherry! Still got snow here. Although this is the first time all winter it has stuck around. It is pretty damn cold (single digits) this morning so I am keeping warm with coffee, gossip and my guitar.

Lucas said...

People's voices do age, just like everything else. For some people it works better than others. Listen to early Ani DiFranco and compare it to something later (off Revelling/Reckoning is a good place). Her voice matured beautifully and she has learned to work with it.

Tina Mallette said...

Touring is where the money is now unless you can gazillion albums worldwide which few people are doing lately.

Even digital music sales were down overall in 2013.

Tina Mallette said...

Even Madonna's voice got better - try playing Holiday - that voice could set off the dogs in the neighbourhood.

sandybrook said...

Mariah can actually still sing w/o producing enhancement so her album will do shit because pop radio wont play it. Not their type of music anymore

S said...

Must be a nice gig.

Record an album for years on the label's dime while globetrotting (Mimi loves to record in Ibiza, dahling) and get paid for it.

Tina Mallette said...

Not if Mariah is working with the right producers and artists which is what she did with that album Emancipation of Mimi and it is what Celine Dion finally figured out - she has a massive hit with Ne-Yo.

Tina Mallette said...

I mean Celine has massive sales anyway but this way she has just reached a new audience.

Molly Moo said...

Totally agree.

auntliddy said...

Mariah is self centered jerk. Anyway, what is enty's deal here? Reveals any old time? I dont mind a bit but dilutes new years and july 4 reveals, no?

Nosy_Canuck said...

I'm sitting in an IKEA right now and I think I've heard 3 MC songs so far. Ugh. I mean, she was good and had the right sound for the 90's but she should just quit while before she embarrasses herself. She can't sing like that anymore and her kids could probably use some attention.

feraltart said...

Mimi has made her record company a lot of money. Good on her for going to Ibiza.

Sherry said...

TTM...Darling forgive my omission..You know we all worship you! :) In my defense you posted just as I did so I didn't see you there.

Snow for you as well Lucas? Damn why does everyone get water but us folk in CA?

Indeed peoples voices d mature and it can actually get better (mine did) but like all athletes there is a shelf life.

Tina hit it on the head, she doesn't necessarily make music that's relevant any longer.

Its just U said...

Hiya Chrystal. Welcome aboard!!

Tina Mallette said...

It is interesting with singers, some of them treat their vocal chords like crap and their voice stays the same, think Rod Stewart, Celine takes very good care of her voice and she still has that voice and for other people, you get those nodules on your vocal chords and need surgery it is a crap shoot. And I imagine there are a whole host of other things that affect the voice that I am not even aware of. I mean look what happened to Whitney Houston, even her speaking voice was not the same.

B626 said...

Her voice is GONE. Time to repackage Greatest Hits, again.

Coke Meth Crack Crank Ice

califblondy said...

I will always be a fan after seeing her live a few years back. She put on a helluva show. Ya, she's crazy, but should go down in history with some of the best voices ever.

Brent Vassar said...

Bit of an insult to those of us who actually take care of our kids (got 4 of em, age six on down, cant afford a nanny or the french word for it, so i work in the middle of the night so i can watch them all day), this stupid bitch only sees her kids at photo ops. she is too doped up to care for those kids anyways, she might not remember their names if fontlover isnt there to remind her.

Sorry, that was supposed to say: WHATEVER, HOUSE!

LOL

Meauxelle said...

I'll respect her for the voice she used to have, but after AT&T screwed up my land line and you could hear a radio station, I cringe when I hear her voice. I'd call "customer service" at AT&T and be put on hold with elevator music, which would compete with phone music. For some reason, Mariah seemed to get more airplay than anyone else. One rep kept pausing like she didn't want to interrupt, another one said she thought it was funny. No more landline for me! Sorry, Mariah...

TalksTooMuch said...

Meuxelle, did you see we are on tomorrow for book club at around 6 pm mt?

Also: all good Sherry!! Hi!

SingBlue said...

Heard a story about MC when she was due to perfom in Jakarta a few years ago. The contract stipulated that no tobacco companies could be involved in the concert as sponsors. She went down to the venue for sound check etc. and saw that the concert had been sponsored by Philip Morris. She didn't say a word, turned round and left and went straight to the airport. She went up hugely in my estimation after that, and she was already up there!

LogDog said...

MV?

Derek Harvey said...

Mimi never sounds like crap------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------she has an amazing voice and enty your an asshole

Why doesn't she tour, ever?
====================
I've always thought she was MV.

KhloeK said...

@Dereck- I think I love you boo!

Pugs said...

My favorite singer but her concert was a total sham. She sang few hits, concentrated on costume changes and wasted 20 minutes of an hour show bringing a birthday cake out for Debbie Allen. All for the low price of $150.00 a ticket. Her back up singers also sang some of her songs while she went off stage and changed. If I could get a refund I would have. It wasn't worth it.
