    Re: Mariah Carey Opinions

    Since Celine Dion was mentioned here, I’ll say this that even though I have a distaste towards her music as much as I have for Mariah’s, I think Celine is adored more because she’s never pretended to be “girl-next-door”…she’s truly that way.

    And I don’t think there’s any trademark in Mariah’s singing voice at all ‘cause I just think it's a combination of Minnie Riperton, Whitney Houston and R&B melisma, that she's using various patterns of R&B melisma that was already invented way before she even got signed and I think she's just subconsciously trying to imitate Minnie Riperton and Whitney Houston.

    I'm not a huge fan, but I do like Mariah. She is indeed, very talented...but I don't think she utilizes her talent to its full potential. Her musics tends to be very formulaic. From a business standpoint, that's great...but I think that she could do amazing things with her talent if she took more risks musically.

    I'd have to say my favorite song is either "I Don't Wanna Cry" or "Emotions".

    That's all.

    Certainly the worst singer of all times.That whore dresses like a teenage girl, it's so pathetic at almost 40 years old.She looks like a fat sow, she's as sexy as an inflatable doll.
    As for her horrible music, after boring us to death with her soporific songs for years, that bitch continues to shit in our ears with this stupid R&B music.
    The son of a bitch George W.Bush should use the crappy album "the constipation of mimi" to torture the prisoners of Guantanamo.I'm sure they would acknolwedge everything including what they didn't do.

    what you said was the her squealing and shrill shreiking was "Operatic."

    And it's not.. it's just squealing and shrill shreiking. And it's annoying.

    And wether she and ODB have known each other for decades or not (and I have a feeling that's not true either), anyone with a clue knows just what he was trying to insinuate.

    Filty. Slut.

    Soilwork, you crack me up...but I think you're taking that line a little to seriously. It was nothing more than a lyrical play on words, with ODB just coming up with something that would somewhat rhyme with Mariah. MC may dress like a slut, but I don't think it's fair to call her one based on a lighthearted rhyme in a pop song.

    Re: Mariah Carey Opinions

    Soil, you've been around here...(lemme see)...roughly six times longer than I have. I thought you would've learned the rules of the Music/Gaming/Movies/Entertainment section by now.

    1. Any thread dealing with a song, artist, movie, or actor - especially any that is entitled "What do you think about...?", is meant completely and solely to praise said item. No other opinion is welcome.
    2. There is one, and only one, rationale for anyone not being a fan of said song, artist, movie or actor - jealousy.

    Thus, you have two options.

    1. You can join in and say how amazing Mariah Carey is, and discuss how with her incredible body of work it's impossible to choose just one best album, as they're all so incredible in such a variety of ways, and isn't she gorgeous, and isn't a shame that everyone who made fun of her movie didn't even take the time to see it to see how amazingly talented she is, and isn't it wonderful that she discovered the true self inside her, and how brave that was.

    2. Or you can take your jealous ass out of here.

    Either/or.

    OH I'm not jealous at all.

    I probably blew ODB myself.

    the 90s are such a blur.

    (and my third favorite thing to do in the world is make fun of Mariah Carey. kicking people when they're down is fun, and considering how OFTEN she goes down it's like shooting fish in a barrel. LOTS and fish. in a really big, smelly barrel.)
    Gentlemen.... Thank you.

    Lol, Soilwork. Of course it doesn't rhyme, but he's clearly trying to make it rhyme! Come on now, Mariah gives us ALOT of reasons to make fun of her without having to resort to making up hidden meanings in lyrics.

    It rhymes when you pronounce it 'pacifiah' as ODB does in his rap.

    Re: Mariah Carey Opinions

    Great voice, but a horrible attitude. After her divorce, I feel like she intentionally switched to being hyper-sexual just to prove something. She's volatile and messed up and her come back, while moderately enjoyable to listen to, still feels like she hasn't taken herself seriously as the artist she can be.

    Re: Mariah Carey Opinions

    Mariah Carey is the best.

    I don't care what others thinks. I know there're over 165 millions of people out there who love her.That's why she is the best selling female artist of all time .And 17#1 song isn't somthing others can do.Let face it, now we surf an internet like crazy.People can load every thing from it and still mariah manage to reach to the top.

    Here're some little examples of what other artists think about mariah

    ================================================== =

    Britney Spears: "Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston were my biggest influences. Madonna and Janet were too. I love their style (Mariah & Whitney) and the way their voices electrify you."

    "When I was little Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, and I love listening to Michael Jackson...Yeah, I've always loved Mariah Carey, I guess because she writes her music, most of her music, and because she comes up with the BEST melodies. Her range is just from here to there, and she's probably my role model

    Nelly Furtado:

    "All that rap and R&B I listened to as a kid made an impression on me; I used to write R&B songs in my bedroom that sounded like Mariah Carey songs." (Billboard)

    "The first singer I really got into was Mariah Carey when I was about 12. She kind of taught me how to sing 'cause, you know, couldn't really afford singing lessons. So, I would just listen to Mariah Carey's CD over and over again, and learn all her lyrics."



    Kelly Clarkson:

    Often cites Mariah as a source of inspiration and frequently covers her songs live such as "Love Takes Time" when she was in American Idol, she couldn't sing Mariah songs but got around it by singing the same covers as her such as "Without You," "Open Arms" and "Don't Play That Song."

    "I grew up listening to her and I love her and I love her new CD ["The Emancipation of Mimi"]."

    In reply to the question, "Everyone has posters on their bedroom walls growing up, who was on your bedroom wall?" Kelly said, "Oh, I had Mariah Carey, Reba McEntire, Aerosmith, Guns N' Roses, had a bunch. I had a lot of Mariah Carey though." (Total Request Live interview)

    At Zootopia 2003 Concert where they were both performing, Randy Jackson shoved her into a room with Mariah against her will (Kelly was too nervous). And Kelly told Mariah (accidentally) "Oh my God, I think I'm going to throw up!" She said Mariah laughed at her and was nice about it. Evidently, Kelly really vividly remembers that meeting, because she tells that story every time Mariah is brought up. (Interview with Ryan Seacrest, KISS 102.7)



    Beyonce Knowles:

    "'Vision of Love,' when I first heard that song, I knew it, my mind was made up - I had to be a singer."


    Kelly Rowland:

    "Mariah Carey is another hero of mine. I remember meeting her and how nice she was, and how I recently saw her, and she was telling me about stole and how she loved the video. And I literally, my mouth was open! I'm 22 years old and I mean at some point you just can't help but get a little star struck, and Mariah is just so incredible! I remember listening to "Dreamlover" when it first came out, and me trying to cut my shorts like hers, and have little plat shirts and show some belly like her! And oh my gosh, I love her! Love her!! She is a very incredible human being!! Listening to her voice just made me want to try even more with my vocals, cos she can do anything with her voice. Her voice is just like the ultimate instrument! She can hit high notes and her bottom voice is just so big and it's beautiful! There's no singer on this earth that can do what Mariah does!!!"


    Nivea:

    "Mariah Carey. She has been my main inspiration." (Teen Scene Magazine)

    "I was watching 'The Arsenio Hall Show,' and Mariah was performing 'Vision of Love,'" the singer recalls. "The way she projected her voice, she just had so much power. I knew then that I wanted to make people feel the way she made me feel. I bought all her albums and learned all the songs. That's all I would do all day long sing Mariah Carey songs..." (Yahoo! Music Interview)


    Melody Thorton, Pussycat Dolls:

    "My first album was Mariah Carey's "MTV Unplugged" and I still listen to it on a regular, to this day. (And you played it the other day. Over and over.) All the time. I met Mariah and she was great and I really, really, like it's amazing when you meet someone with that much like (charisma), yeah. She's done this before. She's like blah-blah-blah talking to me and then I was like just couldn't talk and when she left us I was like crying for an hour. It was crazy. It was great! She said, 'Don't mess up my body make-up.' That's what she said!" (AOL Music Sessions)

    "Some girls have said, 'It's my dream to be in a pop group,' and I'm like, 'OK, because I want to be Mariah Carey.'" (Blender)


    Lucie Silvas:

    "I was obsessed. I remember the moment I first heard Vision of Love, then I saw this white girl with a black voice on television, and everything about her bowled me over. You could relate to her and yet she was a magical icon, and throughout my school days all I dreamed of was being like Mariah Carey. She sang with a gospel choir around her, which was always my dream. I just wanted to be her." (Guardian Unlimited)


    Anastacia:

    "From her very first album till now her voice has been absolutely glorious to listen to. I am affected by every note she hits, which is practically every note on the keyboard."

    "You know later in life I was inspired to sing and that would've been Aretha, Chaka Khan, Mariah - the typical divas were the inspiration. I've always enjoyed all those singers."

    Singer Anastacia told Dope Music Magazine in Sydney that one of the most intimidating performances of her career was at the United We Stand concert in 2002, with Michael Jackson and Mariah: "Before it, I was so nervous. I was sweating like a pig, seriously. The thought of singing with Michael Jackson and Mariah Carey at the same time was indescribable. I never imagined singing with my life time idols".


    Christina Aguilera:

    In the early stages of her career, Aguilera often cited Mariah as a source of inspiration. "I discovered Mariah in my room one day listening to the radio, and as soon as 'Vision of Love' came on, I ran downstairs going, 'Mommy, Mommy' - I just found the greatest person in the world! I just heard the greatest new voice!


    Jessica Simpson:

    Jessica has cited Mariah as a source of inspiration, and after seeing her perform "We Belong Together" at the 2005 MTV Movie Awards, she can be seen mouthing "I love her!"


    Mya:

    "Wow! That rings a bell - 'Mya and Mariah' that would be nice, she's one of my influences as well. Anything is possible. She has a beautiful voice."

    Bethany Joy Galeotti ("One Tree Hill"): "I wrote my first song when I was maybe like four years old. I was always wandering around the house making things up. Back then, I learned a lot about singing from listening to Mariah Carey. I would sing to her [albums] and try and get all her riffs and stuff. I would be in my room for hours until I could get it right, it helps being an only child because I didn't have anything else to do!" (IMDb)

    Kelly Clarkson:

    "Mariah is an excellent writer and singer. I believe she doesn't receive the credit she deserves." (The Straits Times)


    Mary J. Blige:

    I love Mariah Carey. Mariah Carey's music saved little ghetto children's lives. Songs like "Visions of Love" gave us hope and we would sing those songs and try to hit every note like Mariah -- which we can't. I don't think she knows what a big part she plays in Mary J. Blige's life. And then to meet her... she's such a beautiful person that you can't do anything but defend her when [the media] starts acting stupid on her. She doesn't deserve that. (Barnes and Noble interview)

    Mary J. also said in her acceptance speech at the 2005 Vibe Awards where Mariah was in the audience, "Mariah I love you, and I'm so happy for you. (Talking about Mariah's success with "The Emancipation of Mimi")


    Busta Rhymes:

    "One of the best singers in the game, hands down..." (Blender)


    Aretha Franklin:

    "[Erykah] Badu is a very good vocalist. I like her wit. She's kind of a cross between Diana Ross and Billie Holiday. Mariah Carey has done some things I like. Her vocals and production have a very tight quality." (Time)


    Walter Afanasieff:

    "She actually knows every song ever written. She's a walking encyclopedia of songs, from every Stevie Wonder song all the way to every Police record ever made. She carries around this 'hard disk' full of songs. And there's nothing she can't sing." (Fred Bronson's The Billboard Book of Number 1 Hits)


    Whitney Houston:

    When asked if she remembered first hearing Mariah's music, Whitney replied by singing a line from "Vision of Love" and said, "Yep, I remember it. It was like, kinda, my tone, not quite me. Who is she?" (MTV interview with John Norris)


    David Foster:

    "Working with Mariah was an extraordinary opportunity for me. It goes without saying that she's one of the world's greatest singers, but it was her musicianship that stunned me. She thinks like a record producer and lays her vocals down like a virtouso guitarist. Singer, Songwriter, Producer Mariah is a triple treat. Working with her was a wonderful experience from beginning to end."

    Ben Folds: "She's got the most amazing voice. Although the production on her new album, "The Emancipation of Mimi," may turn some off, I find the sheer talent involved reason enough to listen. I love classic soul ballads like "Mine Again" and "Fly Like a Bird." I also like that she's using her voice on this album more like a male singer might, like Prince. She could show off and belt, but she's evolving and doesn't seem to need to prove herself every bar, so you get the interpretation of an amazing singer." (The New York Times)


    Patti LaBelle:

    Has often complimented Mariah ("She has a great voice. I don't know, I love her talent!") and has even called her, her god-daughter. She introduced her at the 1999 Billboard Awards and has duetted with Mariah. She also gave a standing ovation to her when Mariah performed a medley of "If Only You Knew/Somewhere Over The Rainbow" "Mariah has an amazing gift from God that has no color, no boundaries and no limitations. You hear the passion and honesty within her music."


    Jessica Simpson:

    "Oh, my Gosh! Can you imagine they're comparing me to her...I mean she's the biggest selling artist of the decade, and I admire her too."

    "I'm a huge fan of Mariah Carey. I admired her music for so long. It's hard to follow on her footstep. She's so successful. Mariah's Mariah. To be compared to her is a huge compliment."

    Jessica said that "My All" was her favorite song of 1998, and also said that she used to warm up by singing "Hero."


    Nelly:

    "Mariah Carey, she's possibly the best singer I've heard. And you watch someone such as Mariah, who went from the highest of the high to the lowest of the low, and come back like she never missed a beat, and stand up and smack everybody in the face like, 'I'm still here; matter of fact I'm better” that gives you inspiration. That keeps me going."


    P!nk:

    "I love her style, I love especially her covers and samples. I think 'Glitter' is great. It´s a shame that the press never understood how honest this movie is."


    Toni Braxton:

    "I really admire Mariah Carey. I think she's a underrated, because she's a great producer, a wonderful writer, and no one gives her props for that. They always say 'Oh look, did you see what she had on?' And this and that. I'm like she's 30 years old, she's not 70 with breast hanging like chickens. She's young, she's beautiful, she has a great body. I just think she's wonderful, and I think people beat her up a lil' too much.

    Especially Mariah's 'One Sweet Day' - the one she did with Boyz II Men. Oh my God, that really helped me through a rough time."

    Probably Ella Fitzgerald, that's past, but if you're talking currently, I really like Mariah Carey. She's wonderful, she's a writer, and a producer, and I don't think people give her credit as she should.


    Joe Elliott, lead singer - Def Leppard:

    "Mariah Carey has also covered it...and about bloody time! It took 21 years for someone to do a proper cover of one of our songs. Apparently she was listening to Vault when she decided to get back in the studio and add it to her own already finished album. Because 'Bringin' On The Heartbreak' is the final track it suggests she listened right through to the end. That makes it hard not to say, 'God bless ya, girl.'" (In the liner notes of "Rock of Ages" album)

    "I think she's done a very good job [with "Bringin' On The Heartbreak"]. It's faithful to the arrangement, but not done like a rock song. Some astonishing vocal gymnastics toward the end that make Minnie Riperton sound like Tom Waits." (Las Vegas Sun)


    Phil Collen, guitarist - Def Leppard:

    Praised Mariah's cover of "Bringin' On The Heartbreak" as a "genuine version of our song" and defended it from Def Leppard's more critical fans: "The fans really get it wrong sometimes. She's on our side and it's an honour she's done it. Really, that's the only way we're getting played. One of the best singers in the game, hands down..." (Rolling Stone)

    "She's an icon. She's one of the most influential singers of the last decade. I mean, someone like Christina Aguilera is trying to imitate what Mariah did." (Calgary Herald)


    John Mayer: "There's something about Mariah Carey. She's super hot and people don't realize how much influence she's had." (Blender)




    Rhett Lawrence, Producer:

    "I literally got goosebumps on my arms when I heard her sing. I couldn't believe the power and maturity of her voice. It was obvious that she was great - she was amazing."


    Shawn Stockman, Boyz II Men:

    "Of course. Mariah is talented, and you can't denounce her talent. Yeah, she's gone through a couple of personal things, but that didn't change the quality and the texture of her voice. It was only a matter of time before she would rise again and be on top."


    Thalia:

    "She has a voice that started a new era in music in the 90s. I used to listen to her songs. She's accomplished so much in her career with her numerous number one songs."

    Derek Jeter:

    "I was intrigued with Mariah because we had a lot of similarities. Like me, she has a mixed heritage. She has White Irish mother and an African-American Venezuelan Father. Like me, she had a dream in life that she zealously pursued. She knew she wanted to be a singer, and made that her mission. Like me, she still works extremely hard at her profession. she's a beautiful woman, on the inside and outside, and I had a deep respect for her and the way she handled herself. she started out with nothing but a dream that she would be a BIG STAR, and to this day, she still works hard at fulfilling that dream. She's constantly writing, she's constantly in the studio, she's constantly trying to get better. She's someone a lot of people can learn from. I know I did. Whether you like her music or you think it's terrible, you could learn a lot of the way she pursued her goal." (Excerpts from "The Life You Imagine: Life Lessons For Achieving Your Dreams" Book)


    Anastacia:

    "Just after her individual performance, I met Mariah. She actually came up to me, it was so weird. I had no idea that she even knew I existed. She came and told me that she loves my voice and she loved my "Not That Kind" album. I freaked out, haha! I couldn't believe how nice she was, I never expected it from all the rumours I hear. But she's extremely kind and down-to-earth and you know what? We chatted for a while and she told me to sing at the front with her at the end when we performed "What More Can I Give." It was an honour." (Australia's Dope Music Magazine, 2002)


    Janet Jackson:

    "I have met [Carey] before and she's really cool and so funny. Everyone has been given the wrong impression of her, and maybe it is her doing. But you have to remember that celebrities are always in the spotlight and are sometimes forced to conduct them selves in a different way than they normally do. That?s how it is in the business. I have met artists who are real divas, but Mariah Carey is not one of them. She is a very sweet person, and what nobody sees off camera is the real person she is on the inside." (Music Beat)


    Damizza:

    "They say all these negative things about her like she dates rappers or about the way she dresses. If anybody were to meet her, they'd know she's Mary Poppins. She doesn't smoke, she hardly drinks, she doesn't do drugs. She's got a very sensitive voice so that if she walks into a room with smoke she can't sing for three days, or she can't talk. It's funny to be her friend and read all these things about her. Tabloids are always saying she's off on holiday but she's the hardest working person I've ever met in my life. She works 23 hours a day, literally, she never sleeps and she takes care of everybody. When I hear someone say something about her I usually get offended because she gave me my shot, she gave Shade his shot, she gave us all our shots. She gave ODB his first light of day past Wu Tang Clan, and she invented the whole pop-rap collaboration. Nobody would have done a song with ODB at that level - this is a lady who'd sold a 100 million records at that point. She did not have to do that record, she wasn't trying to get street credibility. When we did 'Cry Baby' for her album a long time ago, I called Snoop and said what we wanted to do and he said "'Vision of Love' is my favourite record of all time." Everybody has a soft spot for Mariah. She's the greatest in the world."


    Diane Warren:

    "She works really hard. No matter what she's done, there's a hunger there. She doesn't have to prove herself, but she feels like she does."


    Jamie Theakson:

    "Mariah Carey is the perfect modern celebrity - larger than life, glamorous and totally over the top. I think some women disagree with her diva-like behaviour, but without her, the world of entertainment would be a much duller place.

    I first met her in 1997 when she was promoting her album Butterfly and we hit it off immediately. With everything that had been written about her I had no idea what to expect, but she was smart, warm and very funny. She's a lot of fun to be around and unlike a lot of celebrities, can really laugh at herself. When she performed on Top Of The Pops we started a rumour she'd demanded puppies in her dressing room and it became instant Mariah folklore. But she loved it because it was all harmless fun, and that's what she's all about." (Glamour UK)


    Shania Twain:

    Mariah is very grounded, a smart and level-headed person. I don't understand why people criticize her intelligence when she can do something as miraculous as recover from a physical and exhaustion breakdown, a record label buy-out, a film flop, and a soundtrack whose sales has proven to have received little to no recognition and absolutely no promotion. She can't be that simple if she can make a come back the way she did. She hasn't been given enough credit in my opinion. She has to be some sort of a genius actually just to have focused on becoming a stronger person and not letting people like the media destroy her completely. There are some people out there that can't handle the pressure of being a celebrity and the criticism and knowing that besides success there is always failure that you have to lean to recover from, and Mariah has proven to be the type of person who doesn't let anyone or anything break her down. She knows how to keep her life on track and if that isn't intelligence then I don't know what is."


    Whitney Houston:

    "We've never met or talked before. It was our first time working together. In the studio, we were laughing a lot and talking in between a song, we had a great time together. She's a vivid minded girl, she's a smart lady. I really like Mariah."


    Jimmy "Jam" Harris:

    "From a personal stand point, Mariah's kindness stood out the most. She's a very caring person. We know from listening to her records how talented she is, but we didn't really know how talented she really is until we work with her in the studio. After working with Mariah, I can say, she's part of our family now. She's workaholic and definitely the mother of her career."


    Max Beesley, co-star in "Glitter":

    "She was lovely. I actually kidnapped her one night! I wanted to take her out for a meal to thank her for taking such good care of us all for four months. So I took her out into New York, and told her that the night was on me, and we just going to relax. But she said, 'Well I'll get the wine then.' So I just picked out any bottle, and she ordered three of it. I was downing them like a proper Manc - like it was a pint of beer - when the bill arrived and she started laughing. 900 dollars each! I was really embarrassed!" (BBC1 Interview)

    Missy Elliott: "MC is a funny girl and always makes me laugh no matter what. I love her!"


    Shade Shiest:

    "I don't think it's because she's Mariah Carey, I don't think she's being singled out. It's because anyone successful is always going to be the target of negativity. She's a wonderful person, she's like a big sister to both of us and I have never seen her act any different from her normal self which is just like any other person. She's talented and she's just a regular person."

    Sharlee Jeter: "She's a very nice person and I love her to death. But what happened to them [Mariah & Derek] is between them."




    Now, What are you saying again ?.

    ps. forgive me about my english.

    Wow, long list of quotes.

    I don't mind her at all, but I really love her old-school songs as opposed to the new.

    And I was wondering when Danno was going to say something.

    no because stars DO NOT SPEAK ILL OF OTHER STARS.

    Have you ever heard Whitney or Beyonce say something like "I don't like her music" or "She's a skank" or "I'm not a fan of her work?"

    Neither have I.

    Mariah Carey is currently my favorite singer ever! Her voice seriously isn't as good as it used to be but she knows how to pluck my heart strings so stick by her. I'm in love with the song, Dreamlover but I don't really have a favorite.

    My favorite album by her is definitely Daydream though!

    Re: Mariah Carey Opinions

    Yes, every once in awhile an artist speaks ill of another. But even if it's in passing - "I don't like that song" - it gets played up like some sort of major drama. "The (Artist X) - (Artist Y) FEUD!" Hell, Rufus Wainwright recently gave an interview in which he said he didn't like Beyonce's music. A few people (including a couple here) decided that meant it was soap opera time - they drew up sides and began tossing the slings and arrows of catty one-liners and claims of "jealousy".

    Most artists (or their managers/wranglers) are astute enough to know this, and so unless they're looking for some ink, they encourage their artists to always find something positive to say about each other.

    I think that's an urban legend... like when Mariah Carey said "I feel bad for those starving people in Africa... I mean it would be good to be that skinny but not with all those flies and death and stuff." (She didn't say that either, nor did Lauren Hill say, "I'd rather kill my baby than have a white person listen to my music.)

    Hmmm... No ,I've never said that you have to agree with it.

    And yes just a bunch of talented people said that doesn't mean you have to agree with it.



    ================================================== =

    Personal Quotes

    "This is for all of you out there tonight, reaching for a dream - don't ever give up! Never ever listen to anyone, when they try to discourage you, because they do that, believe me!" (Madison Square Garden, 1995)

    "Forget the image, forget the ensemble, forget the rumours, forget the short skirts, the big hair, whatever! I owe this to the fans and I will never forget you so I want to accept this award on behalf of all of you. We've come a long way and I feel like I'm just getting started. Because as an artist, and most importantly as a person, I am genuinely happy to finally be free to be who I am. Thank you." - Mariah sticks it to the critics at the 1999 Billboard Music Awards.

    "There is a light at the end of the tunnel...hopefully it's not a freight train!"

    "Music is what I love and it's what I feel and it's in me and to know that I can do something that I enjoy and hopefully bring some enjoyment to other people through what I do is an incrediable feeling and I am just really thankful for it"

    "One person could say "Hero is a schmaltzy piece of garbage, but another person can write me a letter and say, 'I've considered commiting suicide every day of my life for the last ten years until I heard that song and I realized after all I can be my own hero.' And that, that's an unexplainable feeling, like I've done something with my life, ya know?" - Mariah discusses the importance of her music.

    "A lot of the time they (the media) form the idea in listeners' minds. Calling me a 'pop diva' without listening to my work so when I come out with an urban song it's like, 'Pop diva goes black.' I mean, pur-lease." - Mariah from Hip Hop magazine

    "Butterflies are always following me, everywhere I go."

    "I'm not one of those people that goes into details of my personal life on national TV to get attention. Some things are better left unsaid"

    "A lot of people are singing about how screwed up the world is, and I don't think that everybody wants to hear about that all the time."

    "I'm not vain, I'm insecure."

    "I decided to make my own ski-wear range after I found there were no fashion outfits for me to wear on the piste."

    It's hard to be someone that people talk about and write about, you know? They don't know me.

    I prayed very hard for this to happen and it happened. I don't even think about what I've achieved, I haven't focused on it and I wish I had, because I really want to enjoy it, and I don't know if I am enjoying it, because I am going through my life like a bulldozer. I still haven't marveled at it. I don't mind being compared to Whitney, there are people miles worse to be compared to, but if you really listen there's a difference.

    People all of a sudden just see me and hear me having hit records and it seems to have come out of the blue. But really I have been working towards this my whole life, and this is what I say when people say I haven't paid my dues.

    What I write is all from my imagination. Fact is, I haven't had time to experience all that, but that doesn't mean to say that I don't write from the heart, because I do. I put myself in other women's shoes, I can feel their pain and joy when I think about it. It's all the same, we're all women.

    There's never been anything else in my life that inspired me at all. It's crazy, but I've always loved music and I've always known this was what I wanted to do. I can't remember a time when I didn't want to be a singer.

    Someone said I never paid any dues.I feel my whole life was struggling, because we were poor. We were alone, we had nothing--no security. I feel I have paid my dues. I've been paying my dues all my life.

    They went through some very hard times before I was born. They had their dogs poisoned, their cars set on fire and blown up. It put a strain on their relationship that never quit. There was always this tension. They just fought all the time. [On her parents' divorce]

    "I've always said that my father is half black and half Venezuelan and my mother is Irish. But people don't understand. They can't fathom that I'm African American, Venezuelan and Irish."

    "And maybe there are some people out there who think a quarter Venezuelan is not a lot... Well, I may be only one quarter, but it's a strong quarter."

    "There was a time when all I was allowed to do was go to gay clubs, because my quote-unquote husband was so afraid of me being around straight people."

    "Raquel Welch, Ursula Andress; I liked their little ensembles.... You've got to throw Farrah Fawcett in there, too. I had the Farrah doll. She was my little style inspiration." -on glamor influences

    "I don't know why, but everybody thinks that I'm short. When they see me for the first time, women are always surprised to be obliged to raise their head." - on her height.

    "I rarely go to bed before 5 or 6 am. I am a girl of the night. I hate getting up before 2pm. And when I get up, I don't have breakfast, just a slice of pizza. I'm composing my songs in bed, because I'm getting inspired when I'm about to sink into sleep. The night inspires me."

    I'd humbly like to become an inspiration to the biracial kids, who are the population of the new millennium. I'm everything and nothing at the same time: white, black and Latino. If I've managed to be accepted, the others can do it, too.

    I can remember when I told myself for the first time: 'I'm going to be rich and famous'. I was about 5 or 6. I was in my mother's car, an old green dirty car. My sister was there too. She was humming; she was about 15, she had just gotten married because she was pregnant. We were on a supermarket parking lot, and I was looking at the wealthy people through the window; I told myself 'I am going to be a star and I'll buy all these things for us.'

    you realize those quotes all seem to not only show her to be a bit of a bitch, but shallow and many of the contradict other quotes, right?

    I mean all you did is prove that she's a stupid bitch who sees a light at the end of the tunnel (and I'd assume it's the flashlight someone left up her twat while looking for their watch.)




    (ok.. you realize that I'm just having fun and that I don't ACTUALLY care either way about Mariah Carey. It's just really easy to pick on her and her fans. I swear some people are so easy to ruffle.)

    Re: Mariah Carey Opinions

    I'm not going to pull her apart because I think she's been the driving force behind her own career and you have to respect her for that. Some of her songs i've liked and others not so much but I do believe she has one of those voices that you either love or loathe.

    There's something quite sad about individuals who slate others musical tastes. It's just snobbery and it shows the person slating the artist, just for sake of it to be a deeply insecure individual.

    Someone must like the woman for her to be at the top of her game (check the record sales) so I guess she matters to someone out there.

    Actually the line is "Me and Mariah
    Go back like babies with pacifiers" and its a reference to them knowing each other as children. But you wouldn't have known that, cause you don't listen to the lyrics properly or a fan. And that's understandble cause people don't have to like what everyone else like.

    You do realize this statement IS a two way street, right?

    ---

    Do a couple of party anthems with uncreative lyrics, and you're at the top these days. Rerelease your album quickly with four new songs, and you've got yourself a megahit. Thats whats wrong with music today. All across the board - not just Mariah, but music(rap, pop"punk" and pop, because if you dare call her last album R&B, i'll fuck you over) in general.

    Its real funny in this thread that everyone FOR Mariah(save DANNO, and if i've forgotten anyone else after this statement, i truly apologize) has resorted to childish middle school insults, instead of trying to prove WHY she is the best, WHY her last album was relavant, WHY her careeer is truly moving up. Besides numbers - who gives a fuck about numbers other than corporations? I mean, just because there are 2 million fools on the planet does not makes those 2 million right. And no, thats not a jab at Mariah fans, thats a jab at those that throw numbers in peoples' faces.

    Come up with something better. I liked her. I just hate the direction she's going in. Hopefully the next album brings back the old days, where she was really singing.

    (the last song i liked of hers was "Crybaby". Haven't heard anything better since.)

    Re: Mariah Carey Opinions

    This is my breakdown of the situation

    #1 Mariah Carey is the best selling female artist in the US ever.

    #2 She has 17 #1 hits.

    #3 Calling her or each other names is dumb. She doesn't care what you think.

    I have no doubt in my mind that I am Mariah's biggest fan here. No questions. But I am secure in my love for her. I don't see the need to be slinging mud around. She better than all those little pop-tartlets, better than Beyonce, better than Madonna! She has more hits, a better voice, and more musical talent.

    So suck it. I love Mariah -- its just the way it is!

    Really he WON the election? Fair and square? No recount needed?

    Perhaps (if he did indeed WIN the election from actual votes) this says more about the voting public of America than it does about whether or not Mariah Carey is popular because SHE clearly is and HE clearly isn't.

    I have no doubt in my mind that I am Mariah's biggest fan here. No questions. But I am secure in my love for her. I don't see the need to be slinging mud around. She better than all those little pop-tartlets, better than Beyonce, better than Madonna! She has more hits, a better voice, and more musical talent.

    So suck it. I love Mariah -- its just the way it is!

    She kind looks like Cojo from ET, after his Kidney transplant, but I mean the meds made him look like that.

    What's HER excuse?
