Mariah Sends "Special Package to fan!
Okay you live in Spain, yesterday you get an unaddressed package from someone. You open it up and see a CTTA Single, a Rainbow Album and an autograph! What do you do? Scream really loud in excitement and that's exactly what Minerva did. Minerva has met Mariah in Spain twice and given her letters and such. So, when she was writing up the Double Rainbow Contest Autographs, she wrote one for Minerva too! How sweet Mariah is! Here is what Minerva told me herself and the autograph is below:
Hi Reg!!!! How are ya? Hope great! OMG!!! I still can't believe what has happened to me today!!!!!! I got a package from the Unite States and I thought that was your package but soon I realized I was wrong and I became really, really surprised! OMG!!!!!! It was a package from New York. Then I openned it and I could not believe what my eyes were looking at. It was a Mariah's autograph, yeah, you hear me right and it was also dedicated to me!!!. It says: "To Minerva Thanks for all your support! Love + Thanks, Mariah".
Reg! as soon as I looked at it, I started to cry a lot because I had never thought that Mariah could do that for me!! Then, I realized that it was a present she wanted to do for me. there was also an American Rainbow's album and the 'Can't take that away' single inside the package, the one with the song 'Love Hangover'. THe package was sent last July, 18th but I got it today. Now, I'm complete sure that Mariah ha read all the letters she has got from me and I have to thank you and Anja because Mariah has read some of my letters thanks to you both. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!

Bits O' Information
Here is some various news I have gotten:

  • Michael
    hey REH-GINA,
    THIS IS MIKEY, AND I GOT SOME PRETTY GOOD NEWS, FOR THE PAST THREE DAYS I'VE HEARD "CTTA" ON A VERY POPULAR RADIO STATION HERE IN SAN DIEGO (JAMIN' Z90) IT PLAYS EVERYDAY USUALLY AROUND NOON. THAT'S SO COOL, EVEN THOUGH IT MAY BE A LITTLE TOO LATE FOR THE SINGLE. OH WELL JUST THOUGHT I'D SHARE.
  • Mariahlamby (aka Danielle)
    It's not that exciting, but Mariah's former make up artist, Billy B. was on a show on MTV today called "Mission Makeover", so they mentioned how he's done her make up before, and showed a short scene from the Dreamlover video.
  • Janine
    Regina, I have some tidbits you may like to know for your news.
    1)William Shatner who does the commercials for priceline.com says a few lines from the theme to "Mahogany" and the pianist plays the song in the background.
    2)In the current issue of YM, Britney Spears article says she is coming out with her own line of Britney Jeans (maybe mariah's?)
    3)On the 15 freeway going south, the last city beofre crossing the san diego county line is named Rainbow with a pop. of 5,000.
    4) On SNL weekend update Colin Quin makes fun of Tommy Matolla in a news article.
    "Mattel plans on coming out with a new Barbie in which she has bendable legs and can wear a midriff. She also has a new boyfriend coming out named Tommy Matolla."

    Britney Beats Mariah
    Well Hannah told me the following:
    Hey Regina! How are you doing ?So I was just listening to Z100 and the 5:30 entertainment "sleeze" came on with Danielle Manero. They were talking about the auction on yahoo and how they have celebrity jeans being auctioned. They then said that they have jeans from Mariah Carey, Britney Spears and Gillian Anderson and more. They said that Mariah's jeans were only being auctioned for 500 currently and that Britney's jeans were the most expensive.

    Hannah checked the website on the how the Jeans were doing and yesterday, MC was at $680 and Britney's jeans were at $3,010,000. Wow, that's a big difference!

    Mariah Carey a Legacy
    Marc (Webmaster of Mariah Dreams of Butterflies) found an article yesterday on Compuserves Story of the Day, which is about MC!
    Carey was surrounded by music as a youth, as her mother, Patricia, was her vocal coach and an opera singer. Her family was of mixed heritage, and sadly, had experienced unfortunate incidents of bigotry and prejudice over the years. In part, these pressures caused her parents to divorce when she was 3 years old. After the divorce, Carey's mother discovered her daughter's noteworthy level of vocal ability and her nurture this incredible talent.
    By the time Carey reached junior high, she was writing her own songs, and upon reaching high school, she traveled to, and later moved to, Manhattan to further study her craft. To help pay her bills, Carey worked in a multitude of jobs, including as a waitress and coat checker, but the talented star has come a long way during the past decade. She has taken the world by storm with her incredible vocal talents, shattering industry records and receiving countless honors for her efforts.
    Now Carey plans to take on the acting world! In 1999, she made a brief appearance as an opera singer in "The Bachelor," but Carey's next big-screen outing will be a much larger one, when she stars in the upcoming motion picture "All That Glitters." In a story reportedly conceived by Carey--and one that, in some ways, could be viewed as mirroring her own life experiences--the film is set against the background of the New York club scene where a singer (Carey) overcomes great childhood adversity to climb the ladder of success.
    Halle Berry's fiancé, soul singer Eric Benet, will be making his feature film acting debut as--you guessed it--a singer opposite Carey in the production. Other performers include rap star "Da Brat," who portrays Carey's sister, and actresses Valarie Pettiford and Tia Texada. The film, directed by Vondie Curtis-Hall of "Gridlock'd," is currently shooting in Toronto and is being positioned for a March release.
    Reports suggest that Carey will launch a worldwide tour following the film's release to support the project and its soundtrack, which should come as welcome news for the millions of fans whose lives have been deeply touched by the challenges and triumphs of the biggest-selling female artist of the 1990s.

Request like heck...

  • Julie
    Last night (aug 28th) I was watching t.v at around mid-night and VH1's show 20 to 1 was on. I decided to check it out and they were counting down the top 20 teen idols and I think number 11 was Boyz II Men and they were showing the hits that they sang and the last clip they showed was of them and Mariah singing "One Sweet Day" as I was watching it they showed a pretty good clip of Mariah singing her part. I just wanted to let you know that.
  • Nicole4404

  • Mariahlamby (aka Danielle)
    Mariah was on a show tonight on VH1 called VH1 confidential. It was about stars who are stalked by obsessed fans. It only showed a picture of her tho. People like that scare me!
  • Bon C
    hey i just wanted to let you know that on Ally McBeal yesterday they played I'll Be There. Mariah wasn't singing it but it was the cover that Mariah did. I also wanted to mention that when you said that someone was singing I'll Be There for the graduation it wasn't Mariah's original song but it was probably sang the way Mariah produced it so she deserves credit.
  • Paula:
    Today in the morning, i was passing through channels and i stoped at FoX network at the show "National Enquirer Tv" which is at 11 0'clock. And they showed the previews tomorrow, and Mariah is going to be on it. They showed her and Tom Arnold asking "Did these stars sleep their way to the top?!) When I saw that I could not believe it! I was so mad, so i want to watch that tomorrow, Wednesday, to see what they say about Mariah.

    Mariah and Britney undress for MS
    Muning sent me this next article that discusses the fact that Mariah gave a pair of her jeans up for charity! She also signed them, "Love Always Mariah!"
    Mariah Carey may not give you the shirt off her back, but you can have her jeans. The singer, along with Britney Spears, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Claudia Schiffer, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Danny DeVito, Drew Barrymore, Harrison Ford, Hugh Jackman, Kevin Costner and Warren Beatty, will participate in the Undress for MS-- Yahoo!® Celebrity Jeans Auction. The auction kicked off today on Yahoo! Inc. More than 70 celebrities autographed and donated their jeans to be auctioned on Yahoo! Auctions, one of the largest, globally-branded free auction sites on the Internet, to support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Southern California chapter. All monies raised will be dedicated to finding a cure for MS and to promoting and providing critically-needed programs and services to individuals living with the condition.
    Through the campaign, people can jump into the celebrity jean pool and raise awareness and funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Southern California Chapter by bidding on signed, well-worn celebrity jeans and/or apparel on Yahoo!® Auctions (http://auctions.yahoo.com).
    People can also send online greeting cards with images of selected pairs of signed jeans to friends and family from Yahoo! Greetings (http://greetings.yahoo.com). “Through this charity auction, people can connect with their favorite celebrity and at the same time make a real difference in the fight against MS,” said Rich Godwin, brand manager, Yahoo!

    Arista Joins With Jam, Lewis!
    Iriad sent me the following article which mentions Mariah in it. You can check it out yourself by clicking here and here is the article below:
    NEW YORK (AP) - Arista Records has made a three-year deal with Grammy-award winning producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis to distribute, promote and market the duo's Flyte Tyme Records.
    Jam and Lewis, who are responsible for most of Janet Jackson's chart-topping recordings as well as hits from artists including Boyz II Men and Mariah Carey, will produce music for Arista artists, Arista President Antonio ``L.A.'' Reid said.
    In addition, artists will be signed to Flyte Tyme and marketed by Arista. ``What I'm building is a music machine. I'm bringing in as many great producers as I can. We can find great songs for great artists - that's the key to success,'' Reid said on Tuesday.
    Reid was recently installed as Arista's president, replacing company founder Clive Davis. Davis left after Arista's corporate parent, BMG Entertainment, enforced its mandatory retirement policy. The 67-year-old Davis last week announced the creation of a new record label, J Records, with BMG. Arista is home to such superstars as Whitney Houston and Carlos Santana.

    Singer who LOVES Mariah!
    Here is what Ryan told me:
    This is just a small bit of something I stumbled upon and I thought it would be nice to mention at least . I don't know if most people have heard of Coco Lee but she is an Asian singer that recently made her debut in the States. Ms. Lee mentions that her one of her top influences is Mariah and included a host of other fine singers as well. It was cool to see.. What is of note is that she is an accomplished artist and singer in her own right, teaching herself Mandarin and writing most of her music. I believe her first language was English. She can speak English, French, Cantonese, and Mandarin. What is intersting is that she is an American Citizen of Chinese descent but only in the outside does she have high polualrity. Only recently she decided to bring it back home. If I am not mistaken I believe she is of mixed heritage as well and also has been wary of cultural biases and prejudices. The mixed heritage is almost as much of a problem in Asian culture as it is here. I believe she also had issues with it but was able to overcome it through music, one of her passions. Now many of her fans can relate to her there and love her dearly. She has many similarites to Mariah and the fact that she lists Mariah as one of her top influences denotes some sort of kinship, don't you think? I have listened to her music and have been very impressed. I just thought I would mention some similarities between them. Thanks Ryan

    August 28, 2000...Update #1
    MClogo Sorry Sorry!!!
    Sorry I didn't update again last night but I didn't get home till late from the party! BUT, I have a lot of news for you all today, so here goes:

    Mariah does good deed!
    Thanks to my Mariah4 buddy Mariah's Diary for this next article. When I read it, it made me realize how sweet and kind Mariah Carey really is 20 times more! Read below and check out the picture of Carey and the kids in Toronto at the bottom of the article!
    When children in Fresh Air Fund programs head out to a farm, they usually meet the likes of Joseph, a rugged old sheep, and Cindy, a black and white cow, two of the farm animals that provide part of the city children's camp encounters with country life.
    But on Thursday, six children who attended one of the fund's camps arrived at a different kind of farm near Toronto to meet someone of a little more stature: the singer Mariah Carey.
    The children, most of whom had expressed an interest in the film industry, were participating in a career orientation program offered by Camp Mariah, the fund's career awareness camp. It is a summer sleep-away camp that shows the children something about their career interests, and lets them visit adult role models at work.
    Camp Mariah is one of five camps in Fishkill, N.Y., operated by the fund, a nonprofit agency. The fund also provides free summer vacations to children from low income neighborhoods in New York City by pairing city children with rural and suburban host families.
    The camp is named for Ms. Carey, who gave $1 million for its establishment in 1994 and 1995. The campers share a particular interest in the singer, who visits every summer. They make a commitment to attend the camp for three years, and the newer arrivals pepper the old hands with the most important question: "Have you met Mariah?"
    This year Ms. Carey did not have a chance to visit the camp because she was filming her first movie, "All That Glitters," which is based on her life.
    Instead, she invited six campers interested in the film industry to spend a day with her and the crew on location in Toronto as they shot some scenes.
    The children, four girls and two boys age 12 or 13, flew to Toronto to see some of the behind-the-scenes work of making a film. Some campers had never been on an airplane before, but the highlight of their day came when they met Ms. Carey, who has had more No. 1 songs than any other woman. On a farm outside the city, the children watched her and a crew of about 60 people run through several 78-second takes of the movie's final scene.
    Afterward, Ms. Carey, dressed in the beige evening gown used in the scene, greeted them.
    Daniel Potts, who attended the camp for the first time this summer, was obviously excited.
    "I'm so nervous I'm shaking," he acknowledged as the singer approached. "I'm scared of her."
    But he was able to overcome his fear. A few hours later, when Ms. Carey met the children again, he was the first to ask her a question: "Did you make the script?" (The answer: She helped revise it, but did not write it.)
    Children who go on the career excursions, which take place before or after the four weeks they spend at the camp, watch adults at work. They tour companies like management consultants, fashion design studios and television networks to hear adults talk about their jobs and how they prepared for them.
    In addition to meeting Ms. Carey during the visit to Toronto, the children saw many aspects of a movie production. Peter Grondy, the film's art director, showed them how he and his crew would make Copps Coliseum in Toronto look like Madison Square Garden did in the past.
    "We researched what Madison Square Garden looked like in 1983," he told them. "We'll be matching the seat colors and covering up the signs."
    The children also walked through the sawdust-covered cement studio, where a crew was building an apartment set, and spoke with the film's co-star, Max Beesley, who advised them on how to become an actor and how to change a natural London accent to something a little more New York.
    For most of their tour, they were joined by Isabel Gomes, 11, who plays the young Mariah Carey character in the film.
    At the end of the day Ms. Carey took the children aside, away from the cameras and the handlers and the assistants, to talk to them about making a movie and encourage them to follow their dreams.
    Anyone interested in making a tax-deductible contribution to the agency may call (800) 367-0003 or visit the Web site, www.freshair.org, or send a check to the Fresh Air Fund, 1040 Avenue of the Americas, New York, N.Y. 10018.

    Mariah on cover of TV Guide!
    Well in France anyway! Tamara from Mariah Goes Online told me that Mariah on the cover of a French TV Magazine. She sent me the scan and you can check it out by clicking below:

    Mariah in Breakout!
    Nikki from #1 Diva Mariah Carey sent me a scan of Mariah in the August 28th issue of Breakout Magazine (foreign magazine). I added the scan to Gallery 36 of the Pic pages and also, Nikki translated the article and here it is:
    "Mariah has regrets"
    Mariah pitiless and selfish? That's what her sister Alison thought awhile ago, but now she changed her mind. Alison used to be a prostitute and infected with the AIDS virus . When she begged her rich sister for help, it was the the last thing Mariah thought about. 'I am not God, so I can't help you', was her hard reaction. But it seems that Mariah has regrets of that, because she changed completely. She supports her sister, pays all the medication and she even bought her a house. Maybe you are God, Mariah?

    Mariah4 helps set the record!
    Well, according to Zoli we did! Thanks to all the fans who helped out Mariah in Hungary by voting for her and getting her to #1. You should all lift the hand straight up in the air and then pat yourself on the back :) Here is what Zoli had to say!
    Dear Mariah 4,
    Can you believe what you have done, lambs? You have made a Mariah-song No1 in Hungary!!!! I can't believe that it have happened!!!
    Lots of radios started to play more often and Against All Odds became a huge hit here because of you guys!
    And maybe, maybe Mariah will read this on one of your sites and I am sure that she will be happy that the solo version of AAO became a big hit in a small land.
    Because I know that Hungary is a small market BUT this is a big evidence that "Mariah 4" is an amazing organization!!! Cos all of you and your readers were so helpful and voted in the past weeks. And it increased the airplays in a lot of radiostations.
    Thank you lambs. Unfortunately I don't know so many English words to express how much I appreciate Mariah4!!!!!!
    Zoli from Hungary

    Some news now about Mariah: yesterday I was watching the VH-1, a program called 'The VH-1 Chart Show' to be exact. But it was an special edition because the vj was taking a look at the most selling albums of the 90th's. Mariah had got two of them: 'Daydream' was in the number 8 and 'Music Box' in the number 4 with 24 millions of copies sold worldwide. The soundtrack of 'Titanic' was in the number 2 and the first place was for the soundtrack of 'The Bodyguard'.Hopefully, Mariah will sell millions of copies with the soundtrack. Chica, I'm dying to listen to it!!!!

    Luis Lovers
    Okay as we all know Luis Miguel is dating our hero, Mariah Carey! WELL, I know someone who is a big fan of Luis Miguels as well as Mariah Carey's. Her name is Anna and she sent me a lot of information about Luis. Read below if you want to find out more of the love of Mariah's life! I learned a lot of things I didn't know!
    In regards to Luis Miguel (full name, by the way, is Luis Miguel Gallegos Basteri - some people assume that Miguel is his last name, but it's his middle name. The American version of course, is Louis Michael, and Michael is where the "Micky" comes from) There's always been intense interest in his personal life, especially his love life. He was a child prodigy, has acted in movies, commercials, public service announcements, made dozens of videos, won countless awards worldwide, is an accomplished singer, writer, arranger, producer, plays guitar and piano, oversees every aspect of his tours and other productions. He's multi-cultural, multilingual He's an excellent cook, very good at sports like soccer, tennis, golf, horseback riding, but most of all aquatic sports. (One of my favorite videos features a beautifully graceful dive into the ocean, and continues with him swimming like a little fish with a dolphin.) He's an articulate and intelligent person, and yet, most of the ton of stuff written about him focuses just on his personal life, his love life, his clothes, his appearance, even his hygiene habits ("Mickey is a "shower king" - he bathes at least 3 times a day, usually more!" was the headline of one article.) Another talked about how he likes to keep his hands well manicured (he does have beautiful hands) and that he used to travel with his own dental hygienist to keep his teeth super white. Yes, an entire article about his teeth came out last month in a TV-notas magazine! Last year they photographed him entering and leaving Barney's of New York, commenting on the clothes he bought for his trip with Mariah to Puerto Rico; they even listed the colors, the cost, etc. When Luis and Mariah were first becoming an "item", the press camped outside a luxurious Beverly Hills Hotel bungalow waiting for Mariah and him to emerge. They got pictures of LM leaving about noon, dressed in a sweatshirt and jeans, with the caption (How was your night, Micky? You look a little sleepy!), and then photos of MC and her assistant leaving a few hours later. Very intrusive, yes, but even I had to laugh at the photo that showed several burly bodyguards waiting outside the bungalow looking after " Jack" - he's on a leash and his carrier is on the ground.
    All this attention on his personal life and his "look" takes away the focus from what he considers the most important thing - his music. Some of the media have shown a responsible attitude, but a lot of lies have been printed and published about him. He rarely gives interviews because he's been misquoted so often, and he always seems to be the subject of rumors and gossip. In a rare interview given last year around the time of his album release, he joked that he'll sometimes pick up the paper and read things about himself and wonder " who are they talking about? I never said that, I didn't do that, and I wasn't even there!" He acknowledges that it's what happens when you're a public figure . He said something like" people think they can write or say anything about you, because you're a public figure, and they have the right to treat you like public domain." When he was in his early 20's the press kept circulating a story that he had died and someone else was using his name. (!) Later there were rumors (untrue) about Daisy Fuentes "losing their love child" after a secret marriage (sound familiar?). His romance with Mariah, due to her "stellar" status, and the constant media buzz that surrounds them, have put even more attention on his personal life. Out of respect for their relationship, and because he wants to retain as much as he can of the little privacy the media allows him, he rarely discusses his private life, and hardly even mentions her name, but you know who he's taking about when he says "this person whom I admire so very much." , or when he talks about how (and I'm paraphrasing his words here) "it is hard for us to find time to be together, our careers ,both our careers, are very demanding, and it's difficult not only for you, but for this person that you love....but I think it's something beautiful, when you've been apart for a while, and then you reunite, it's like something brand new. So (being separated by work) does have it's positive side." He also said that the fundamental thing in a relationship between a man and a woman is mutual respect. He stressed that he respects and admires "this woman" very much. During Luis's last tour, which ended in May of this year, there were a lot of comments in the spanish language press about how he seemed looser, happier, more content, and his voice sounded better than ever. Many were of the opinion that his relationship with MC has been a very positive thing for him, and while many of his female fans were envious of her, at the same time, they appreciate the respect and love she's shown him.
    I'm including them for your own information and for anyone else who wants to know a little bit more about Luis Miguel However, since I can't give you the exact quotes or sources for the my statements above, that portion is not for general distribution, please. I don't want to be one of those people who gives out incomplete or unsubstantiated info! If I ever do come across the articles or interviews in question, I'll pass them along. Sorry to be so wordy in my email, but LM is a subject very dear to my heart and I could write about him for days! If you go to the Luis web site listed below (http://love-that-luis.com), be sure to scroll all the way down the first page to the portion where Sandy presents two fan reviews of the night in Quilmes, Argentina when Luis presented Mariah to his fans as "his official novia (girlfriend)." (MC Novia Official - GO!) It may be a story you've already heard or read about, but it's very sweet. The fan reviews are also interesting, and well-written, like the one describing the "chick fight" at the Anaheim Pond - Sue M's Anaheim concert review. My favorite is the one about his appearance at the Radio City Music Hall - great fan perspective on seeing him upclose and personal and good pictures (Barbara's Review and Photos of NY Concert) Here are the links to some interesting articles about LM, some with omments related to MC.
    Fall of 1999- Article in Vista Magazine about "Amarte" cd and tour, quotes from press conference. Includes picture of Luis and Mariah walking down the street http://vistamagazine.com/novmigu.htm
    "People" magazine profile about LM in June 1999
    http://people.aol.com/people/pprofiles/lmiguel/bio.html
    An article about Luis in Las Vegas
    http://lvshowbiz.com/current_issue/headliners/mandalay_luis_miguel.html
    An article in English that was (clumsily) translated from the original Spanish; it cobbles together bits and pieces from his press conference and subsequent interviews last September. However, a good photo of Luis and some nice comments about life, love (MC) and music:
    http://www.romantikalatina.com/pubhtml/profil11.htm
    A review of Luis's concert in Dallas on his birthday this year and comments about his adoring fans, dating Mariah,etc.
    http://www.star-telegram.com/news/doc/1047/1:ENCORE41/1:ENCORE410419100.html
    Lastly, if there are any "true blue" Luis Miguel fans out there, I would direct them to a wonderful web site that is especially nice because (drum roll please) it's in ENGLISH! Sandy G. (the web master) isn't Hispanic, but she mastered Spanish to the point where she is an expert at translations, especially the very difficult to translate Spanish lyrics. She maintains a very user-friendly, respectable site (No bashing allowed). There are excellent audio files, video clips, pictures, reviews, and lyrics to many of his songs, and other resource info. She posts information about tours, latest releases, fan reviews, a message board and LM updates. No unsubstantiated gossip or speculation about him and MC, (good for her) but she does post photos released for general release, like the recent vacation pix, links to magazine articles and web pages. Information is in English and Spanish, but is primarily aimed at those LM fans who love his music but aren't especially fluent in Spanish. Her site address is: http://www.love-that-luis.com

    Clive and Mariah!
    Melbsb15 sent me this next article! It's about Clive leaving Arista and Mariah is mentioned in it:
    Less than two months after his official exit from Arista Records, Clive Davis is back in business. The Arista founder and former president has entered into a 50/50 joint venture with BMG Entertainment to form J Records, Billboard Bulletin reports.
    The label -- named for Davis' middle initial and that of many of his family members -- is valued at around $170 million by an industry source, based on the initial investment in artists and executive staff. Boy band O-Town, the subject of ABC television's "Making The Band," along with debut artists Olivia, Alicia Keys, and Jimmy Cozier, are the first acts on J Records; initial releases are due in October.
    Davis has established a team of executives that includes president/COO Charles Goldstuck, former executive VP/GM at Arista, and a host of Arista veterans in promotion and A&R positions. Davis says more staff announcements from outside the Arista camp will be made next week.
    Davis, while serving as chairman/CEO of J, will maintain hands-on production involvement in future projects by Arista artists Whitney Houston and Carlos Santana. He also will participate in a joint venture with Arista for the next project by Monica, for which Davis and new Arista president/CEO Antonio "L.A." Reid will each produce tracks. In addition, Davis tells Billboard he will "continue working with" Arista acts Next, LFO, Shannon Curfman, and Deborah Cox.
    BMG chairman/CEO Strauss Zelnick stresses he will play no active role in running the label, saying, "BMG's role is as financier and worldwide distributor. We will have zero management involvement, except to the extent that we can be supportive." A separate publishing deal with BMG is likely to be announced in the next few months, according to Goldstuck.
    Davis also refutes earlier press accounts that the new label had attempted to woo Mariah Carey and George Michael to its camp. "Those reports are erroneous. We have had no discussions with George and Mariah."

    Christina Offered Britney's Partner
    Ken found this article at MTVAsia's website and it mentions that Don Phillip wants to be like Mariah Carey!! Read below:
    Singer Christina Aguilera is set to follow in Britney Spears' footsteps by recording a duet with new artist Don Philip.
    The pair hope to cover "If You Say My Eyes Are Beautiful," first recorded by Whitney Houston and Jermaine Jackson.
    Don got his big break when he provided vocals for "I Will Still Love You," the only duet on Britney's debut album, "Baby One More Time."
    Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell has also donated a song to the solo artist's forthcoming album and Don explains, "I want to be like Mariah Carey.
    "You know how for a few years Mariah was the person everyone did duets with? Well I'm trying to put together this next duet with a certain girl who is a 'Genie In A Bottle.'"
    Although the original version of "If You Say My Eyes Are Beautiful" is currently available on Whitney's "Greatest Hits" album, Don is sure people will love the cover.
    He says, "If you're going to remake a song, you ought to do it better or different, and I think I can take Jermaine.
    "And I don't know, but I think Christina can take Whitney right now, so it will be a great duet."

    Check out this site!

    If MC can do it, so can you!
    CrAzYxAnjeL 3169 also told me that at her school, Marshall High in LA, in the window of a candy shaq there is a picture of Mariah from her high school days. There is a column next to it that says she on top of the world today and that she made it through high school and so can you! Well, something along those lines at least. Pretty cool though! Hopefully these will turn up in school across America this year and if they do, someone can scan it for us!

    New Pics
    The News is kind of slow today, so I thought I would spice it up by adding some new cool MC pics! I was looking through my hardrive and found some nice pics of Mariah that arn't really on the internet much and added those. Also, thanks to Michelle for the Rainbow Wallpaper and the pic of MC from the Rainbow Record Signing (cute pic of MC). If you want to use the one Rainbow pic by Michelle you have to ask her permission (MariahCarey0000@aol.com). Also, there is a new drawing I did of Mariah on the cover of the Vogue Magazine! You can see it in the above NEWS banner or you can check out Artwork page 1. All the other pics are in Gallery 35! Enjoy!

    Mariah on Power 106 yesteday!
    Lilwillie told me that Mariah was on Power 106 yesterday in LA! It was a repeat from the Homecoming Special. Here is what I was told:
    There was this girl in the studio with them and she left her job to see Mariah and the girl was worried that she didn't have a job anymore. So they called her job and they asked the girls boss did she still have a job and he said yes. Then the D.J. asked Mariah could she do one of those high notes. At first she said she wasn't rested because she only had two hours of sleep and she couldn't then she said ok after the D.J. begged her so she did it. The D.J. said whoa I havent even heard that on mtv and thats was the major stuff from the interview.

    Translated Spanish Article!
    Anna was SO NICE and translated a spanish article which you can see by clicking here! Here is Anna's translation:
    "Mariah takes a break for Luis Miguel"
    The singer leaves her work obligations to rest a few days in Acapulco at the side of her love
    New York, USA
    Mariah finds herself in the middle of filming of her movie "All that Glitters" in Toronto, also working on the soundtrack for the movie, and a photo session for a northamerican magazine (Regina Comment: Vanity Fair Magazine). The singer, recently honored as the Artist of the Decade, has also been spending time doing charity work - visiting the kids at Cabbagetown Youth Center, and with all this activity she's a little worn out.
    For this reason Luis Miguel suggested to his love (his beloved) that she take a few days off and relax with him in Acapulco and relieve some of her stress.
    "She was in Mexico last week, but she's returned to work in Toronto" affirmed a source in Cindy Berger's office, Mariah's publicist. "We don't know how much longer the filming will take, but there still remains a few weeks more."
    This visit marks the latest of several trips to the Mexican Idol's mansion by Carey, who, like him, enjoys the climate in Acapulco. After finishing up his latest world tour, Luis Miguel decided to take a few days of vacation before working again. His latest project involves the concert DVD which was produced during his series of performances in Monterrey, Mexico. This DVD, as well as video and CD, will be on sale in the next few weeks, but in the meantime, Micky wanted to relax in his home in Acapulco, and hoped that Mariah would be able to join him there for a few days.
    It's a known fact that the singer (Mariah) is very excited about making movies, and now that she has the chance to star in a film, she's taken the opportunity. The critics, as well as other people involved in the production, have praised her work and predict great success for her as an actress. "People keep talking about how surprised they are by her acting ability" said columnist Liz Smith. "There's been a lot of positive comments."
    Although this isn't Carey's first acting role, it will be her first starring role. The movie also stars Terrence Dashon and Valerie Pettiford, and is directed by Vondie Curtis-Hall.
    Previously, the singer appeared in the movie "The Bachelor" with Chris O'Donnell and Renee Zellweger.

    Britney Spears Copies Mariah, Carson says!
    CrAzYxAnjeL 3169 and DiVaLiCiOuS32770 both told me that yesterday Carson mentioned how Britney Spears has copied Mariah's style from the Heartbreaker video! I don't think it's a big deal though and I like both videos! Oh well, had to mention this because it was big talk on this sites messageboard a while ago!

    Terrence Howard Arrested
    Here is another article that XFile4x13 sent to me about Terrence Howard, a star in the upcoming All That Glitters Movie, being arrested:
    Big Momma Actor Howard Jailed
    Actor Terrence Howard was recently seen playing a thug on the run in Big Momma's House, and now he's being accused of acting like a criminal off-screen.
    Howard was released Friday after spending a night in jail for allegedly roughing up a female cabin attendant on a Cleveland-bound flight, police said. The actor could face federal charges for Thursday's incident on board a Continental Airlines flight from Toronto, where he is filming All That Glitters with singer Mariah Carey.
    The flight attendant claims that Howard grabbed her wrist and barked at her to get out of his way when she warned him to remain in his seat while the "fasten seat belt" sign was on, Cleveland Police Lt. Sharon McKay said.
    Howard was reportedly taking his 3-year-old daughter Heavenly to the bathroom, McKay said. Another passenger assisted the flight attendant, who was not seriously hurt, she said.
    On arrival in Cleveland, Howard was charged with assault and jailed overnight, but he was released when the local prosecutor said he lacked jurisdiction. The case was turned over to the FBI, which is currently investigating the incident.
    Howard also appeared in the romantic comedy The Best Man.

    Mariah and Bill Clinton!!
    Well, not really but this article that Nini sent me says MC has two letters from Bill Clinton! Interesting! This article is from the NY Post and read below to check it out:
    CARLY Simon on Martha's Vineyard posing for Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair ... *NSYNC soon to be on everyone's lips thanks to a line of assorted lip balms. Like Justin Timberlake's flavor is vanilla ... A Robert Redford burp: "If you were me for a month you might want to change it to two weeks." Aaaaah, poor good-looking famous millionaire movie star ...
    Tori Spelling trying karaoke spin class. It's singing whilst on a stationary bike. Look, what do you want from me? ... Christian Bale filming "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" with Nicolas Cage and Penelope Cruz on some remote island hates the food, hates the weather, hates everything. Did it only because his character swims with dolphins, which he was eager to do. That scene got cut out ...
    The male lover of a really famous married male movie star is talking about the longtime affair which he, not the movie star, broke off ... While Macaulay Culkin isn't running hot, brother Kieran is. Following "The Cider House Rules" Kieran's out in Jodie Foster's "The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys" and Touchstone's "Go Fish" ... Margaret Thatcher: "Clinton is a great communicator. Trouble is, he has nothing to communicate." ...
    In her next life, Ricki Lake might be a midwife. She'd love to deliver babies and is boning up on the subject ... Jennifer Lopez: "My cousin gave me great advice. Said to always wear pretty shoes, because the man I was dancing with would be looking down and if he saw beautiful feet, he'd probably fall in love with me." ... Kate Winslet: "I'm worrying about pregnancy stretchmarks on my stomach and thighs. Anyone knows how to avoid them, please tell me." ...
    Tina Turner, who lives in Zurich, sold her late mom's Studio City home. New owners rent it out for $5,500 a month ... Bruce Springsteen's Little Rock deal stipulated the venue supply him with "a special orange French champagne" plus chicken noodle soup and Hellman's mayo for his sandwiches ... People who have gotten to know Monica Lewinsky tell me she's a very nice girl, very bright girl and has a great sense of humor ... Boy George: "Jose Feliciano calls Ricky Martin ‘Ricky Marketing.'" ...
    Usher, the R&B, singer says the one who inspired him to start dropping his drawers was his grandma. Seems Granny said, "You should be flaunting your stuff." ... Howie Mandel: "I'm embarrassing as a dad. I have to drop my 14-year-old off a block from anywhere, and that includes our own home." ... Kenneth Branagh carries a snap in his wallet of semi-nekkid Helena Bonham Carter, taken during a time they were doing semi-nekkid things together. The inscription reads: "For your eyes only." ...
    Shania Twain's stepdad taught her the dangers of alcohol at 16 when he let her guzzle non-stop until she got sick to her stomach ... Leo DiCaprio's dad sold comic books. And Beverly Hills Madam Heidi Fleiss' dad was Leo DiCaprio's pediatrician ... Gene Simmons bringing his life story to the screen. Sort of a "Jazz Singer" modern style ... Bill Gates, who has his own private train of three cars, has increased it to eight including a diner and observation platform. With priority over regular commercial runs, it's aggravating West Coast travelers ...
    Mme. Tussaud spokesperson on Naomi Campbell's wax model: "She's so popular with young gentlemen that her dress is getting ruined." (And what that could mean I don't even want to think.) ... Hiccup from Dodi Al Fayed's daddy Mohammed Al Fayed: "I am far taller and more handsome than I appear on TV." (Not. I saw him two months ago in his Harrods in London, and he isn't far taller or far handsomer. That's far out.) ... Minnie Driver admittedly has sexual fantasies about Christopher Plummer ...
    Mariah Carey's biggest pride is two framed letters from B. Clinton ... Sandra Bullock on what she'd really like Santa to bring her? Boobs. Big ones ... Christina Applegate on movie sex: "I hate it. You're in front of people you barely know and having a fake orgasm, which we've all done in real life but now all of a sudden your cover is up." ... And if, from all of this, I haven't come up with anything in this whole column that interests you - then there's something wrong with one of us.

    MClogo Anti Mariah4
    Well, yes! Three webmasters have come together and created a webpage against The Mariah4 saying they hate "groups" like us! However, one of the webmasters is in two differnt groups that copied the idea from Mariah4 in the first place! So what can I say? Hypocrites! I am not even mentioning the names of the sites nor the webmasters nor the address to this hate Mariah4 site! All I say is that they do not present the news correctly and that it's sad that fellow Mariah fans are creating hate pages rather then coming together and helping each other out!

    Video Caps Part 2!!
    Okay if you couldn't click on the links yesterday for the AAO Video Caps, try copying and pasting them in your keyword box because sometimes xoom doesn't allow direct links. All the links work though and if you STILL can't see yesterdays caps, I added 4 of them into Gallery 35.

    New Pics
    Art sent me the 3 page scan of the TV Notas magazine. It includes the two pics from yesterday and some older ones. It also has the pic of Mariah and Luis in NYC and it was recently in the GLOBE tabloid. They only showed their heads but in this pic, they showed their whole bodies and surroundings and MC looked so pretty :) Those 3 pages are in Gallery 35. Also, in Gallery 35 is a tiny collage I made of screen caps from the Allure Video which features Mariah! I like the pics of her in the cowboy hat! One of the pics is the new Quote of the Week pic! Enjoy..

    Mens Fiteness Magazine
    There is a pic of Mariah in this magazine in a brown top and navy green skirt! I am not even going to discuss what the article is about but it's pretty typical. Thanks to Alan for this information and someone else sent me this a while back and I never posted it! Sorry forget who :(

    Okay Magazine
    JoseAR95 told me that MC is in the latest issue of the british magazine OK! It's a pic of her from the WMA's in the black dress and it talks about the little girl who was suppose to play her in the movie!

    Bits O' Information!

  • VanishingXPhile: Hi Regina! There is another girl who has been out for about since 94. Her name is Debelah Morgan. (www.debelah.org) and says that she loves Mariah Carey. This is a very talented girl with a five octive range and she hits the notes almost like Mariah but she can't go as high. So since this is said, I have heard that Mariah has anything from a 5 octive range to a 8 octive range. Do you know exactly what is is? I know it is more than 5.
  • Dennis
    I subscribe to Columbia House under Country interest, and they give a larger section for country music, obviously. Well they have this little spotlight for a new artist named Rebecca Lynn Howard. Here's what it says:
    Already a hit-making songwriter for the likes of John Micheal Montgomery and Reba, this 20-year-old Fan Fair sensation describes her recording debut as "rock 'n' roll meets bluegrass meets r&b meets country." With influences from Patty Loveless to Mariah Carey, the only constant is vocal power."
  • Dennis (again)
    Tonight on MTV they had a show called "VMA's 99 Uncensored" or something like that and for one of the parts they had they TGIFY remix in the background. (no words, just music)

    Petition
    Well I don't usually support these petitions because there are so many of them now but Lauren made an interesting one! I was really mad MC didn't get a nomination for the MTV Video Awards and that is what Lauren made the petition for. So please, everyone sign it if you got a little extra time today! Hee hee..

    San Diego Newspaper
    Johnny told me that in his local newspaper (San Diego Union-Tribune) yesterday, there was an article about Mariah and All That Glitters. Here it is:
    CAREY'S 'GLITTER' SHINES ON BENET
    R&B singer Eric Benet will make his acting debut opposite Mariah Carey in "All That Glitter" for Columbia Pictures and 20th Century Fox. The project is in production in Toronto with director Vondie Curtis-Hall("Gridlock'd"). Written by Kate Lanier, "glitters" is set against the background of the new York club scene and centers on a singer who overcomes a troubled childhood to rise to the top of her profession. Benet will play the supporting role of Ceasar, a popular R&B singer and songwriter. Rounding out the cast is singer Da Brat and Tia Texada as Carey'a best friend and British actor Max Beesley as Carey's DJ love interest. The Hollywood Reporter and Variety contributed to this column.

    Spanish Articles
    Okay who is good at translating articles from Spanish to English! Hee hee! Anna is a big fan of Luis and likes Mariah Carey a lot too and found two articles that discuss the couple! IF anyone is a big Luis fan, maybe you would want to check this out too! Here is how to access the first article:

  • Go to www.famaweb.com
  • You will now see Luis on the cover. Click on his name in the left hand column
  • Click on "Fotos" (photos)
  • The article should appear about how Luis makes frequent visits to New York City "para amar" (make love) to Mariah. Now, there is another article that talks about how he rented the presidential suite at the Four Seasons so that he could spend a week with MC. Supposedly the cost was $10,000 per night, not including taxes.
    Then, there is the Mexican Reforma Newspaper, Anna told me! Here is what she told me:
    They had an article (in Spanish,of course!) about MC's recent visit to Acapulco. Unfortunately, it's no longer accessible, but I printed out a page when it was current. The article spoke about her hard work and good reviews on the film (Glitters), her visit to Cabbagetown, her photo shoot with a northamerican magazine (I'm assuming Vanity Fair), the same stuff that was mentioned in the NY newspaper, and the fact that because of all this, she needed a little R&R, and so Luis suggested she take a few days off and visit him at his mansion in Acapulco (so that she could release some "stress" the article stated :) There was a photo of Mariah (on stage) with the caption "Mariah takes a break from her commitments to spend a few days in the company of her lover, Luis Miguel, in Acapulco." It mentioned that this visit makes several times that MC has visited Acapulco, and that she and Luis both enjoy the climate there. Nothing we didn't already know, but nice to read all the same.

    Okay I don't announce trade information on this site because it's a NEWS Site. BUT, Alan made a ballad cd and he is selling it. I posted all the information on the messageboard, so check it out if you like!

    Request Magazine
    Mariah is in the September 2000 issue of Request Magazine. At the bottom of page 9 is a section called "10 Questions, 9 Answers!" There is a small pic of Mariah holding an award and it says, "Which Side is Mariah's Best?" On the page 12, the next page, there is an article that reads:
    "MARIAH'S BEST SIDE IS HER BACKSIDE
    Millions want to know:
    Will diva serve a burger with that shake?
    On a recent glamour shoot with a celebrated fashion photographer, Mariah Carey requested that as many pictures as possible be taken of her 'good side.' The shutterbug was flummoxed, wondering exactly what Mariah meant, until she turned around and stuck her pooper right in the photog's face. This may also explain why the folks at BBC's Radio One are auctioning a toilet seat that the former Mrs. Mottola used when she visited the station earlier this year. With an eye toward auctioning it for charity, the clever Brits unscrewed the very throne upon which Mariah had bestowed her grace."
    Now I don't know why this "Request" magazine likes to bizarre stories like this. In the last issue they wrote a not so nice one about her concert too! I don't believe this story either, do you? Thanks to Hillary for this information!

    Horoscope!
    Jen sent me Mariah's Horoscope but it was SO LONG I had to edit out most of the middle and ending. If you awnt to read the whole thing about Mariah, click here! Otherwise, here is the basis of it:
    Mariah's Horoscope:
    'Shrinking violet' is not a term that describes Aries Mariah Carey. The songbird in the short, short dress knows that glam plus vocal prowess equals megasuccess. Even so, life wasn't always so simple for this diva, who penned tunes in high school in the hopes of being recognized by someone in the music business. Her dream came true thanks to Sony honcho Tommy Mottola, who saw promise in the young singer and signed her right up. Tommy married Mariah, too, but that deal turned out to be less than successful. Numerous hit albums and Grammy Awards later, Mariah continues to dazzle her fans while being escorted around town by some of celebrity's most eligible bachelors (including the Yankees' Derek Jeter, Sean 'Puffy' Combs, Luis Miguel).
    Birth Details:
    March 27, 1970
    New York, New York
    Born under an Aries Sun, Carey is a feisty and independent woman who wants to be the best. Can you say competitive? The songstress is an 'A' student in the school of 'Me First,' and much to her credit, has the enthusiasm and initiative to be front-page news. With her Sun Conjunct Mercury, Mariah's will to act is further strengthened. Nervous energy is the order of the day here -- both good and bad. Carey's Sun and Mercury both find themselves Opposite Uranus, the Planet of Rebellion, in this chart. The Sun's Opposition to Uranus is anything but subtle, presenting us with a woman who is willful to the point of being dictatorial. Mercury's Opposition to Uranus sounds off in the form of inconsistent ideas, radical points of view and myriad controversies. The singer's actions will get her into trouble from time to time, but she'll get a lot done, too.
    Thanks to her Mercury in Aries, New York's finest won't always think before she speaks. That may be why she's quick to talk about a very familiar subject -- herself! Yes, marvelous Mariah is fast on her feet, loves to mix it up and is a formidable foe in a verbal joust. With her Venus in Aries as well (the Ram really does love this girl!), Ms. Carey can be a bit selfish in the game of love. The singer is aggressive and competitive when it comes to love, although she is also deliciously sociable and delightfully romantic. This placement further indicates that Carey is likely to spend her money as quickly as she makes it. Lastly, with her Venus unaspected in the heavens (making no aspects to any planets or points), look for Carey's romantic persona to be somewhat disconnected from the rest of her self.
    It's Mars in Taurus which brings Carey back to terra firma. The Bull's meeting with the Planet of Passion signals strength and determination, but of a more measured and purposeful variety. The songstress will get the things she wants (like money), albeit in due course. Since Mars is Conjunct to stern Saturn here, Carey will see to it that she's always got a plan and is working it. Mariah? Working it? Ask her fans!

    Twenty One
    Joe was watching the rerun of Twenty One and they had a question on Mariah.The question was worth 9 points.
    The question went something like:
    In 1999, Mariah Carey released her ninth consecutive album. What the name of that album?
    The choices were:

    MClogo Updates!
    There is a new quote of the week and new pic of the week! Check them out if you like!

    Exclusive! Mariah on Cover!
    Art saw Mariah on the cover of TV Notas, a Spanish Magazine. Inside are two pics of Mariah and Luis on vacation. It's similiar to the Globe article and talks about over 30 places the 2 have been together! Here are the two pics in the inside and the one is a new pic :) Enjoy and thanks again to Art!

    Pat yourself on the back!
    Remember how last week Zoli e-mailed me asking for us to vote for Mariah again in Hungary? Well, she moved from #43 to #23 and now this week, she has moved up to #10 with Against All Odds. Zoli wants to thank all of you who voted to help Mariah out in Hungary because this is the top station for them! He would like for all of us to vote again to help out Mariah. It's so simple guys, so please help once more time!
    -First click here: http://www.zplusz.hu/sikerlista/index.jsp -Scroll down and choose AAO (at the moment it is #10) -Then click the orange-blue arrow that says, "Tovabb."

    Rachael Lampa mentions Mariah!
    Tom heard about a new singer that is only 15 years old and he said her voice is amazing. He went out and bought her cd after seeing her on Jay Leno and he loved it. He went to her website to find out more and in her biography it says that she loves the pop divas: Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, and their likes. Pretty cool eh?

    "All The Way" with Britney Spears
    Remember that pic of Mariah and Britney Spears from the MTV Europe Awards? Well, Romerolola told me that she saw the book and you can pick it up now! I think it is about $12?

    Lucky Fan at NYC Concert
    Jackie was the lucky fan who Mariah threw the shoe to at the MSG concert earlier this year. Just thought I would share that! Hee hee!

    Buttefly Review
    Tim found an older "music reviews" article from a local magazine of his. It for the Butterfly album. I read it and some of it ticked me off and some of it I liked. I thought I would post it here anyway!
    Soul diva or queen of schmaltz ? To the die-hard Carey freak , this women's voice can ^^MOVE MOUNTIANS^^ . For other , she just a heavy bimbo who bellows out all the high notes without any self-restraint . The fact is that her sort of lovely dovey ballads will always have a place in pop . After all , people fall in love all the time and there must be an accompanying soundtrack , right ? ( absolutely ) Already the sugarcoated " Honey " has reached no 1 and just for good measure three different versiond of the song r included here . Tune to inspire an all-out snogathon come in the form of the title track , " My All " and " Fourth Of July " . Schmaltzy they may but Mariah herself has declared " So What? " A very punk rock attitude , it must be said , and the women must be commended for not playing the critic's tune . After all , the 55 million records sold must indicated that she's doing something right . Another hit and a population boom is imminent ( they gave this album 7 out of 10 )

    More News Coming
    There is still a couple more things I want to add but I have to go back to work now! There really isn't too much news right now though but if you find anything, please e-mail me! Thanks!

    Today at around 9:00am They played "Crybaby" on Rock of Ages on VH1 and asked a group of kids and some older people from a fish market what they thought of the video and most people said that the video was great but it would have been better if Snoop wasn't in it, but the comments were nice overall.

    That's It
    That's actually all the news I had sadly. Please send me pics/news/anything Mariah related cause things are really slow right now!

    MClogo New Message from MARIAH herself!!
    Mariah left a new message on her official website. It's quite bizarre though because the message just stops. Did she say something Sony didn't want released or maybe she just left a cute brief message. I don't know and neither do you but I hope "someone" can let us know soon :) Here is what she said though:
    "Yeah I do believe the put my nice message up on the board, in fact *laugh* it's Mariah...... so u guys know where to direct this new message tonight and I just wanted to say that Im reading a nice message from the wonderful lambs out there - you know who you are and I just wanted to say you guys are the freakin best! who does stuff like this? come on!"

    MClogo New AAO Video with Westlife!
    Here are some people who saw the new video and let us know how it was:

  • Paul
    I just saw the new Mariah & Westlife video on Select MTV in the UK! It was basically clips from MTV News that I had seen a few months ago with them all in the studio. Mariah was also on a boat in the water singing. It was really cool! The only horrible thing is that they didn't show the whole song. It should be on everyday now!! yippee
  • Mark
    This afternoon on MTV Select the new video of AAO with Westlife premiered here in the UK!!! It was very good. It was like a fly-on-the-wall video showing Mariah with Westlife around Capri and then them recording in the studio. There was a nice bit where Mariah was sitting on a boat singing her solo verse, she looked very fit!! LOL!! Anyway to all the UK fans or anyone who can access MTV:UK you will be able to catch the new vid again Friday morning on MTV Select Replay it is on at 6 am so get up early

    Westlife/MC Duet in USA!
    Here is what Danielle told me:
    Okay Regina, I have some GREAT news on the duet with Mariah and Westlife. Today I was just listenin to my radio, talking on the phone, usual stuff. I had on B96 (A main station in Chicago) and I was listening to the 12 O'CLock Street Mix. I'm pretty sure the Mixmaster Tim "Spinnin" Scholmer as he's most reconized as, and I heard a Honey remix, then they played the AAO mix! I'm still trying right now to call back to get any info on it, but no one is answering my all! (Which it is now 1:07) :P Anyone else hear it?

    Fanbook
    There is a little 14 year old girl, don't know her name sadly, who is creating a special fanbook for Mariah. Stephanie from All Mariah will be putting the information on her site later today, so if you would like to add to it, you can :)

    Heartbreaker Released!
    1 day and 1 year ago on August 16th, Mariah's first single from Heartbreaker was released guys! How cool :) Thanks to Paul for this information!

    AAO Video has been seen!
    Russell said he saw the new video with Mariah and Westlife and here is what I was told:
    Nobody's gonna believe me but i saw the MC/ Westlife AAO video. Well Kind of any way. I was channel surfing and on MTV UK I saw the AAO video bu there was no sound except for this really annoying MTV sound ( U hear it when it's going into adverts and it says MTV letter by letter on red background , just so u know what it sound s like!) Obviously i couldn't hear it but from what i could see the video was really good. It's MC and westlife in the studio, Doing Photo shoot's , In various different places in Capri and on Boat at sea.( Just like that picture from a magazine we saw ages ago.) I thought westlife were just doing Backing vocals but although i couldn't hear it I see what they were saying and Mark (Geeky Brown haird one) was singing the second verse. (probably cos he's the biggest MC fan out of all of them) I know probably none of you believe me but it's True i saw most of the video. But I think that Maybe MTV didn't show it in the Making the video premier like they said they would because the video needs to be changed or something and thats why there was no sound when i saw it.

    Fanbook
    Joe is putting together a huge fanbook for Mariah and would like you all to participate in it. He wants the letters addressed to HIM, but they are suppose to be about Mariah. By doing this, he is hoping to give a new angle on the fanbooks! Send your letters on how Mariah changed your life to:

    Then put Mariah Carey as a suggestion!

    MClogo Mariah Leaves Official Message!!
    Well half my mailbox today was filled with fellow MC fans saying that Mariah has left a new message, so thanks to everyone who wrote me about this! Pretty ironic that I mentioned this yesterday, ha ha! Oh well, check out the Official Mariah Carey Site for a new, REALLY CUTE, message from Mariah! Also, thanks to Muning for typing out the message!!!
    Hi (high).
    I’m sorry I haven’t left a message in a really long time but, yeah.. it’s Mariah and I’m up here in Canada uhmm., I’ve been here longer that ive been in 1 place for the past three years, in fact. And uhm….uh- uhm. Im sitting here with my new pair of lambs slippers and an entire lamb outfit. And listen to what my lamb slippers do. Hold on, wait….. Wait why aren’t this working? oh.(baaaaa!) (laughs… ) c’mon they baaaa! How cute is that?
    Anyway, I know I haven’t left a message in a long time. ‘Cuz I didn’t know of you guys will be getting my messages and hopefully you’ll get this one but I wanted to say thank u so much for everything as always. I owe everything to you, in fact! and uhm.. there was like a little weird nasty people and listening to my messages and commenting on them in the press and stuff like that so it became a little hard for me to do it! So, just so you know it’s not that I’m neglecting you. I love u as always and uhm I appreciate u and enjoy u as u already know. And I hope everybody’s having a great summer and im having so much fun doing this movie and uhm doing the soundtrack and yeah ive met some nice fans recently who came a long way and brought me a beautiful plaque and uhm I believe they call themselves the lambz o’ MC. And they made me really really great fan book and stuff so u guys know who you are thank u. and uhm everybody thanks for everything with “Can’t take that away” again. And you know I appreciate you and I love you and hopefully you’ll get this message and I’ll be able to leave a message periodically for you again okay? I love u guys bye.

    AN EXCLUSIVE TRUTH TO A FALSE RUMOUR
    Well I was glad to see this message from The Mariah Carey Archives. Thanks to Jackie for telling me about it and I wish that Jessica Simpson would see this!
    First let me start out by saying this is a legitimate email and nothing in this letter is false. For a few month I was interning at a radio station. During my time there we had several upcoming artists and big name artists to visit, one being Mariah Carey. In the studio, during the time of her visit, there were several reporters from local newspapers and magazines. Mariah talked on a variety of topics one topic being: "Out of the new rave of young female pop artist who do you think have staying power?" Mariah replied "Mini Me", the host then said you mean Jessica Simpson? And Mariah replied "No, you know 'Austin Powers'," and she started laughing. She then replied, "No, seriously, I really don't listen to pop radio and so I haven't really heard any of the new artists. I did meet Britney Spears a while back and she was a really down to earth girl." The host then went on talking about Jessica Simpson and Christina Aguilera and he asked Mariah if she had any advice to give to them and she said, "Make sure you know what everyone is doing around you." I know it has been a rumor for awhile that Mariah called Jessica Simpson "Mini Me", but that just was not the case. Her response was taken out of text. With various reporters around, you can be sure that one would create an interview, he or she wants.

    Listen to AAO Remake!
    John told me that you can hear a sample of Mariah and Westlife's new single "Against All Odds" on an Irish Radio Station site! Just click below!

    AAO in United States!
    Most likely, the AAO single with Westlife will NOT be sold in the US! But don't fear because Tower and Sam Goody should be getting it in as an Import; Just like they did with the first AAO single!

    AAO in Europe
    Here is what Julientold me!
    Hey Reg! Just to let you know that AAO is available as a single and as a maxi single, but it's not the version including Westlife. I found mines at Virgin Megastore in Paris, so i guess it's also available all over Europe (as you know, the Westlife version of AAO will be here in Europe on september 25th). And plus i'm so happy cuz we have a lot of commercials on TV here (especially on a channel called "TF1", the most popular here) for Rainbow, even thought i think Sony should have done those commercials in late '99, when Rainbow was released, cuz now in the summer ppl are more likely to go out and therefore don't watch TV that much.

    News From Sam Goody!
    Chris told me that Sam Goody did carry Mariah's Official Calendar last year and they have already gotten from 2001 calendars from NSync, Blick 182, Monica and Madonna. So he is guessing that it shouldn't be long until they get the Mariah Carey calendar in. Plus, he said that Diva's Live CD can still be ordered but there is no word on when the cd will be released. Also, there is no word at all about a video or DVD yet!

    MClogo Exclusive--Buy Mariah's Official Calendar Now!
    Last year, Mariah released the first Official Calendar and it seems she is doing it again. Last year, you could get the Official Mariah Carey 2000 calendar through Black Beats ads and now you can get the Official Mariah Carey 2001 Calendar through Black Beats ads again. Mariahlamby (aka Danielle) told me about this and I went out and bought the magazine for the information. Here is all the information you need to get yours delivered!

  • The Mariah Carey Calendar is $12.99 plus $3 for shipping (for US residents!)
  • Make Check or Money Order out to Sterling/Macfadden
  • They accept Visa or Mastercard (they need the # of the credit card and experiation date along with your signature somewhere!)
  • Make sure you include this information:
    Name/Address/City/State/Zip
  • The address:
    Sterling/Macfaddan Dept. 2001-Cal-BM
    35 Wilbur Street, Lynbrook, NY 11563
  • If you live in Canada, you have to send an additional $6
  • If you live out of the country, you have to send an additional $12 plus if you send a money order, make sure it is for U.S. dollars drawn on U.S. Bank!
  • Important:
    This calendar WILL BE in stores later this year, just like it was last year for the 2000 calendar. So, if you don't have the money, or your parents won't let you get it through the mail, never fear it will be in bookstores probably around October or November 2000.
  • Print:
    IF you want to print this out and send it in, it would probably be easier for the company. I'll leave it up to your decision though!

    Much Love for Japan Fans!
    Well I got a Rainbow Minidisk recently from Japan and I was looking through the inside and it seems that Mariah signed a personal note to all her Japan fans! How sweet :) You can check it out for yourself by cliking below!

    New Pic
    Along with buying black beat yesterday, I bought the new Fresh magazine, which features a nice article on Mariah and has a lovely pinup of her at the Blockbuster 2000 awards. You can check out that scan in Gallery 35.

    Mariah mentioned in EW
    Dan told me you can check out a little article about All That Glitters in the Entertainment Weekly Magazine for this week. Dan also told me that there is no pic in this magazine!

    Okay What's Up MC?
    A couple of you have e-mailed me lately asking why Mariah hasn't left a voice message to her fans lately. I e-mailed Jill, Mariah's personal assistant, about this a month ago because I was wondering the same thing. Sadly, Jill didn't reply to my e-mail, so I don't know what is up. I am guessing though that Mariah is just extremely busy with the movie at the moment and is unable to call in somewhere to us. Also, Sony is giving her problems too so she would probably have to call someone who owns a fan site like Bree or someone in Mariah4 again! I sure hope she leaves another one soon though! I know I miss hearing from her!

    Vote for fellow fan
    Okay, I got this next bit from Liz:
    Hey fellow MC fans! I need your vote and support to win this fan contest. My friend is representing Mariah and has written two pages on how she inspired her (my friend has met her!). The one in first place is an nsync fan , so we need help representing Mariah!! Please vote!! Thanks!! P.S. send me an email once you've voted, so I can thank you =0) Vote here: http://mariahcarey4eva.teenchoice.fox.com/index.html

    Heartbreaker on Q102
    I have been talking about this for some time now but a while back, someone called my local radio station, Q102, and told them the Sony situation. Well Q102 said they would play Heartbreaker more often and last night I was in the car and Alex and I heard it on the radio. Coolio huh? A big thanks to the Q102 people for thier help!

    AAO released August 22nd
    Ove told me that the Against All Odds single will be released on August 22nd in Sweden.

    AAO in Sweden
    Here is more information of AAO in Sweden that Ida sent me:
    Hi Regina! I´m so happy!!! I have just heard AAO with Mariah and Westlife on radio "NRJ" here in Sweden. It was the first time they played the song on swedish radio. The song was GREAT!! It was mostly Mariah who sang so I don´t understand why Westlife claims the single to be theirs.

    93.7 Special Mariah Carey Promotion
    Kristen called her local radio station in Buffalo, 93.7 WBLK, and told thme the situation with Sony. The program director, Skip Dillard, e-mailed her this back:
    Thanks for your letter! We'll get Cry Baby on as often as possible!
    We're also doing an exclusive Mariah promotion at the end of the summer! Look out for it!
    Skip Dillard
    Kristen would like all of you to request Crybaby at:

    Crybaby on Rock of Ages!
    Well, sadly I missed it but 2 people e-mailed me about it:

  • MariahLamby (aka Danielle)
    First they showed the bath tub scene. A little girl was dancing to it, and a little boy said "that was pretty disgusting" lol. An older guy said "It's the usual... for Mariah". (Oh dear) Then they showed Snoop, and another old guy said "She's good, but when that otha guy that popped in", "what's his name?" ("snoop dog" -said by a little boy he he) " I think if he wasn't in it, it would be 100% betta" lol. Then the host said "what's wrong with Mariah?" and a little girl said "She's got this weird man who she doesn't really wanna be ("there?" can't tell lol) (host) "kinda like a stalker"? (little girl) "yeah kinda like that".
    Then they show her throwing stuff, and breaking oreos and all that lol. The old guy says "she lost her lover, so she's trying ta forget about him, she's 'boosing'"(word for drinking I guess, lol) and eating her cookies, she's doin what girls do usually ya know"?. (host) "and what do guys do, do ya know?" (old guy) "guys just drink, they forget the cookies". (laughter).
    (host to kids) "do u think Mariah is lonely in real life?" (little boy) "no, I think she's got a lot of butlers". (host) "I've heard about the butlers".
  • Kristen
    Hey Reg, I saw the Rock of Ages with Crybaby on it. They asked some little kids and some old people what they thought. This one boy said the part where she was in the tub was disgusting. When they showed that part to the older people, this old guy said, it's the same thing from Mariah, or something like that. The old guy also said that it would have been 100% better if Snoop wasn't in it. Then the host asked the kids if they thought Mariah was lonely and the one little boy said she has a lot of butlers. Ummm? What? And the host said, yeah, I heard about the butlers. Um, okay, well that's very informative, uh, not. Why do they ask people about Mariah who have no clue what's going on? Oh well, if you missed it, be glad, it was a waste of time. LOL, I mean, they really didn't diss her or anything, but I think their remarks were ignorant because they know nothing about MC. Oh well, what can ya do?

    Charlie Rose
    Okay I taped Charlie Rose earlier this morning and Mariah was on for 40 minutes of the hour while Alanis was on for only 20. It's a nice interview because there was no commercials to worry about. Was it the whole interview though? Wasn't the original airing on 11/2/99 a full hour? I missed the beg. of the interview on 11/2/99, so I am not sure! Oh well, all in all, Mariah discussed Tommy, her Rainbow CD, her childhood and how she was dissed in the one magazine for only being called a singer and not producer/songrwriter/singer! She also talked about Petals, my favorite song and several other things!

    Vote for Mariah!
    Koh would like you all to vote for Mariah on Channel [V] International because they are asking for the Top 10 Sexiest Videos Ever. Choose 10 videos including Honey from the list. You could also fill in other songs. I suggest you put Heartbreaker remix or even Breakdown as these are sexy videos too. Thanks

Thanks to Nacho for this information and everyone, give yourself a pat on the back if you bought Rainbow again!!

    Charlie Rose-What the Heck Reg?
    Well a lot of you e-mailed me about this show tonight. Some want to know what channel and some want to know what time. Sadly, I can't tell you neither and you need to look it up on your own. The channel is PBS, but that station differs from town to town and state to state. It's channel 12 here but for you, it might be 34 or something. Also, the time changes. It is 12 am here but it might be 10 pm where you are. The best way to figure it out, is to go to clicktv.com and look up your own listings. I hope you find it in your neck of the woods :)

    Dave Cuts it Off!
    Ha ha, the top of his jeans that is! Daniel told me that you can see David Morales wearing a pair of Mariah inspired Jeans in the September issue of VIBE Magazine.

    CLIVE'S NEW VENTURE
    Thanks to Nini for this next article from the NY Post! This is the Mariah Part Only!
    The veteran label exec is also one of many music chiefs looking to ink a deal with pop diva Mariah Carey, who is expected to leave her long-time home, Columbia Records, when she completes the final album of her contract with the Sony Music label.
    But, without the full backing of a media giant, it is highly unlikely Davis Entertainment will be able to afford the pop diva, who is expected to command about $60 million for a multi-album contract deal.
    Industry insiders say that while Carey and her management team have not begun the negotiation process, L.A. Reid and his stable of pop and R&B divas has the money - BMG reported worldwide revenues of $4.7 billion for the year ending June 30, including Arista's $550 million - and the know-how to work with the chart-topper.
    And he has as his executive vice president former top Sony exec Jerry Blair, who worked closely with the pop singer at Columbia Records.

    Mariah in Globe Tabloid!
    My buddy Mariahlamby (aka Danielle) told me that Mariah is in the August 22nd issue of Globe Tabloid! It has a pic of Mariah and Guam and a pic of Alison. The article talks about how Mariah is "FINALLY" helping out Allison with her AIDS treatments. I personally think that it is NOT Mariah's responsiblity to help out Allison and Allison should be THANKFUL Mariah is willing to help her out after everything Allison has done to Mariah. Poor MC, she always has a heart of gold! Here is the article (anyone got a scan?)
    Mariah's Mission Of Mercy
    Pop diva Mariah Carey has thrown out a lifeline to help save her estranged AIDS-stricken sister, offering to fund cutting-edge medical treatments for the killer disease, reveal family friends.
    The guesture reflects a change of heart by Mariah toward Alison Carey, an admitted ex-hooker, who says the singer once snubbed her plea for AIDS medicine by coldly declaring, "I'm not God. I can't save you!"
    But pals say that Mariah is now proposing to sponsor Alison's visits to specialists in New York City and Atlanta, and pay for expensive AIDS treatments, travel and accommodation.
    When Alison (right) learned of her superstar sibling's surprise offer, she thought it was a cruel hoax.
    "So she called her mom, who's very close to Mariah," says a pal, "and she asked 'Is it for real?' Her mom said. 'Yes, it's what Mariah wants.' Alison now believes this is the beginning of the end of bad feelings between them.
    "She says her mom told her, 'Mariah says what's in the past is in the past, that she never stopped loving you as a sister and she's now ready to do whatever she can to help.'"
    It's about time, says another pal- "If Mariah comes through for Alison, she'll be doing the right thing for her sister, at last."

It will air on PBS and I suggest everyone look it up because the time changes from town to town. It might be 12 am in NJ but it might be 3 am in another state or another town.

    Mariah in Fresh
    I think I reported this information but Iwill say it again. It seems that Mariah is in the Sept. issue of "Fresh" magazine. There is a pinup of her and an article about how she saved a young girls life. Anyone got the scans for me? I am told it's a pinup of her in a pink dress? Maybe the Blockbuster 2000 awards?!? Thanks to Bob and Kim for this information

    Tidbits
    Here is some information on Mariah that I got from various people while I was on vacation:

  • Kaho
    Hey Regina, Just like to give you some news on Mariah in the UK side of things! I was watching MTV UK's R'n'B shwo The Late Lick and they showed the full video for 'Cry Baby', and i was like soooo happy cos i have never seen that vid b4! I think that Cry Baby will be Mariah's next single to be released in the UK. I actually don't really think that Against All Odds will be released as Mariah's own single as Westlife has been on UK TV saying that there next single will be Against All Odds featuring Mariah Carey! I don't really understand how Westlife are taking full credit for the song as from what i have heard of the song Mariah seems to be the lead vocal in it and Westlife are just on backing vocals! Well hope the info helps you!
  • Mrinehart
    Mariah was on MTV's show "Sex in the 90's" First it said that artists are now using sex to sell albums, and they showed the back of "Rainbow." Then they were talking about fantasies, and they played mariah's "Fantasy."
  • CKbe608
    This is from the live chat at fox.com, when asked who had the biggest influence in Destiny Child's musical careers they responded:
    Beyoncé Knowles: We all definitely share a lot of the same influences.
    Beyoncé Knowles: I know Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, En Vogue, The Supremes...
  • Alan

    domain: www.glitters.org
    Coming September 2000

    Mariah mentioned in Walter article
    Shawna told me she got a magazine called, "Roland Users Group:The Magazine for the Electronic Musician" in the mail. She gets it every few months and on the cover this time was Walter Afanasieff. There is a big article on him and MC is mentioned in the article:
    "It was there that Walter also began his relationship with an unknown singer who would eventually become the top-selling female artist of all time, Mariah Carey. Walter began producing and co-writing with Mariah by her second album, "Emotions" (1991), and his writing and producing were instrumental in her phenomenal success."

    Crybaby on Rock of Ages Monday
    You can check out Mariah's "Crybaby" video on the VH1 show called "Rock of Ages" on Monday the 14th. The description of the show says:
    Little kids at the New York Aquarium and older folks at the Sea Breeze fish shop watch and comment on videos by Mariah Carey ("Crybaby"), 'N Sync ("It's Gonna Be Me"), Lit ("Miserable"), and Metallica ("I Disappear"). Henry Alford hosts.
    Mrinehart sent me this information but I wasn't told what time the show started. I went to the VH1 website and I believe it is on at 10 am! Here's hoping I am right because I would love to see what is said about Mariah's Crybaby Video!

    New Webpage
    Andy from Italy has just finshed his own site called "Symply Mariah" and would like you all to check it out! You can do so by clicking below :)

    Anderz And I
    Okay I have to clear this up cause I read the post on my messageboard about us; We are just friends! There is nothing going on and it was all a joke from the beginning. Anderz is someone who has helped me through a lot of things and he is just a really nice and sincere guy! We are not an "item" because we live thousands and thousands of miles away. Just very good friends....

    CAREY & BENET: GLITTER GETS IN THEIR EYES
    Thanks to Heartbrkr1802 for this next article which you can see at vh1 by clicking here:
    All That Glitters is no longer a shimmering phantasm existing only in Mariah Carey's fine head. For the diva's feature film debut actually began shooting in Toronto last weekend, and The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that sultry soul person Eric Benét has joined the cast to play...a sultry soul person.

    The Carey vehicle combines the best elements of Dreamgirls and Carey's own improbable rise to fame, telling the story of a singer who puts a violent upbringing behind her to become one of the most popular performers in the world. There are some original elements: Carey's character won't be "hanging" with Ol' Dirty Bastard. Kate Lanier, whose credits include last year's Mod Squad, wrote the story.

    Although the first two days of shooting were rained out, Carey was getting ready for her closeup by the end of last week. The Toronto environs are filling in for Georgia, where Mariah's character endures a hardscrabble childhood.

    Milwaukee's own Eric Benét fits into the mélange as soul singer/songwriter Caesar. He joins a cast that includes Carey pal Da Brat as a pal of Carey's character, Tia Texada as a Carey pal who isn't Da Brat, and British actor Max Beesley. According to the New York Post other cast members include ex-Bongwater singer turned actress Ann Magnuson, who plays a publicist, and Salman Rushdie's reported girlfriend, model Padma Lakshmi.

    Beesley made his mark in the A&E miniseries Tom Jones. His role, Deejay Dice, has been described as a with-it DJ who is big in the underground. Carey finds out just how big that underground is when she falls in love with him. Don't worry, Luis Miguel, it's only a movie.

    Benét started his career as a teenager with his sister and cousin in a group appropriately called Benét. He released his first solo album in 1996, but made his greatest impact with last year's A Day in the Life album. The record spawned the hit R&B single "Spend My Life With You," a duet with Tamia. Benét has also paid the bills with the odd acting gig. He was a recurring character on the WB's For Your Love.

    Although Carey has talked up the film since the beginning of the year - even going so far as to contact Prince for soundtrack advice - the deal for Glitters has come together only recently, with Columbia Pictures and 20th Century Fox teaming up to produce the movie. All That Glitters will be directed by Vondie Curtis-Hall, who worked with the late rapper Tupac Shakur on the 1997 film Gridlock'd.

    "I always wanted to act as a little girl," Carey told VH1 News in January. "I was in a lot of different workshops and theater workshops when I was little. And now I've been studying with a really great teacher for the past, about, two-and-a-half years. And it's been really rewarding to me as an artist and just as a person."

    Compared with aspirant blockbusters like Gladiator, All That Glitters is budgeted closer to the Cool as Ice level. Columbia and Fox are ponying up $20 million-$25 million to tell Carey's tale.

    Coming Tomorrow:
    Well that's all the news for today but coming tomorrow, you can see exclusive scans of a cover Mariah has appeared on called "Popsicle Lite!" Alex picked it up for me while he was in the Phillipines these last two weeks and there are SEVERAL pages on Mariah plus a cover shot! So I will scan that and more new pics for you tomorrow! Till then, have a nice night!

    August 9, 2000...
    MClogo Bye Bye Bye!!!
    Well today is the last update I will do for a couple o' days. I am going away on vacation this afternoon and will be back this weekend! You can continue to send me news/pics whatever! Sorry for the lack o' updates but you can check out the other Mariah4 websites for all your information while I am away! Tootles...

    Thank You!
    I want to thank everyone you contributed to the fanbook that Anderz made for me. It's been a really hard year and Anderz was so sweet and so kind and he made me a little fanbook for me. So many of you said how you liked the site and the newsletter and I wanted to thank you all because later this year, this site was going to be shut down but now I see I should keep it going longer. Especially since Mariah herself asked me to please not shut down the site, what a sweet lamb. So thanks again to everyone and I will treasure it forever :)

    New Pic
    I got a very lovely pic from Uwe's website and I thought I would attach it here for you all to see. It's from the TOTP show, where MC got the Rainbow Review Fanbook. She looks so lovely, as always!

    Faith Hill AND Shania tackles Mariah!! OH NO!!
    Now Mariah is in third place behind Faith Hill and Shania. Now I KNOW VH1 is adding votes to Faith Hill and Shania because I know we have all been voting like crazy for MC. Please go and vote for her, it's important because VH1 always is rude to Mariah and if we make them see that she has a huge fan base, then maybe they will lay off!!Also, when I come back from vacation this weekend, I want to see MC at #1 guys! Don't let me down..HA HA HA!!!

    MEDDLING MARIAH RUSHES MOVIE
    Here is an article from Nini that's from today's NYPost!
    POP diva Mariah Carey is counting on novelty casting and her own sex appeal to spark interest in her schlocky fictionalized biopic "All That Glitters."
    Singer Eric Benet, fiance of vehicularly challenged actress Halle Berry, and condemned "Satanic Verses" author Salman Rushdie's model-turned-cookbook-writer girlfriend Padma Lakshmi will make their big screen debuts in the Columbia-TriStar flick Carey is producing and starring in, reports foxnews.com's Roger Friedman.
    For better or worse, Ann Magnuson, who portrays a music label publicist, is the only experienced actor on the set.
    The movie has been riddled with casting conundrums since Carey supposedly "fired" an 11-year old girl at the last minute who wasn't appealing enough in the role of the young Mariah.
    But the diva's rep, Cindy Berger, insists the girl, Bianca Collins, only had three auditions with casting agents and never met with either Carey or director Vondie Curtis Hall, who made the final choice.
    Meanwhile, sources tell PAGE SIX Carey is pushing the picture ahead as fast as she can because the soundtrack will be her last recording for Sony Music before her contract expires. Insiders say she had been in talks with Clive Davis to join his about-to-debut label at BMG, but called it off when Davis wouldn't meet her terms.
    "She was asking for up to $15 million in upfront money, a piece of equity in his entertainment company and her own label besides," our source says. Carey had been promised her own label by Sony, but those plans were shelved due to budget cuts.
    Insiders say Davis' problem is that although he'll be getting $175 million over five years once his deal with BMG is inked, he's not allowed to sign big-money artists without approval from BMG boss Strauss Zelnick.
    Zelnick is said to have signed off on Carey, but she decided to look elsewhere after Davis said he'd only go as high as $9 million. He then trained his sights on George Michael, but Zelnick balked at the lukewarm Brit pop star's $10 million pricetag. "He hasn't had a hit in a while," one source snarked.
    Berger denies that Carey's engaged in discussions with any record companies.
    "Conversations between Clive Davis and BMG are ongoing and an announcement will be forthcoming," BMG spokesman Keith Estabrook promises

    Dieing Mariah Fan need our help!
    Well I was really sad when I read what Kelly sent me. It's seems that there is a fellow Mariah fan dieing from AIDS and is only 14 years old. Mandi, the little 14 year old, left the following message on the Mariah Carey Fantasy, a yahoo club:
    "Hello, my name is Mandi. I am 14 and live in Topeka, Kansas. in a matter of a few short weeks I will die of AIDS. I am sitting right now at home. :( i cant be helped. my mom is too poor and the medication didnt work. i got AIDS through a blood transfer a few years ago. right now I am listening to One Sweet day by Mariah and boys 2 men. i am frightened. i dont wanna die. i joined this club because it looks like a club that cares about other people and not fight at all. sorry if your cyring by reading this. well i g2g now. bye. Mandi"
    If you would like to send your thoughts and prayers to Mandi, please send her an e-mail at: jewelcasesloxs@Hotmail.Com

    Correction
    Yesterday, I reported I didn't know who sent in the college jeopardy information and it was Michelle. So thanks Michelle :)

    Rainbow Goes 4x platinum in October most likely!
    See I don't know much about Billboard or what the charts are all about but William e-mailed me and told the following information, which made me kind of happy, in fact!
    Hello, RIAA certified albums by the number of units is shiped rather then number of sales. As Rainbow sales, new shipment of the albums will be sent to the stores to replace the ones that sold. Right now Rainbow have sold 2.95 million copies. When it sales 3.1 million copies it will be certified 4x platinum. I have kept up with all of Mariah's albums sales and rainbow will follow along with other Mariah's album. Rainbow will sell more copies in the long run and will be on the top pop catloge chart for a long time. Around October it should be certified 4x platinum. I have all of my faith counted on it.

    Eric Benét "Glitters" With Mariah Carey, Da Brat
    Thanks to Victor for this next article:
    Soul singer Eric Benét is the latest musician to be added to the cast of Mariah Carey's forthcoming rags-to-riches flick "All That Glitters," a project that is currently before the lens on location in Toronto.
    "Variety" reports that Benét, who previously had a small role in the WB series "For Your Love," won't have to stretch too much in his feature film acting debut, as he's set to play an R&B singer named Ceasar in "All That Glitters."
    In addition to Carey and Benét, the Vondie Curtis-Hall-directed movie will also feature rapper Da Brat as Carey's best friend in the flick, which details the dramatic rise to fame of a young singer (Carey) from a foster home in the inner-city projects.
    "All That Glitters" is scheduled to film in Toronto and New York City through the end of September, and is tentatively set for release in March 2001.
    In addition to the movie career, Benét is also working on his third solo album, the follow-up to his 1999 sophomore effort, "A Day In The Life," which has sold more than 752,000 copies, according to SoundScan.

    More Rolling Stone Information
    VanishingXPhile told me that Mariah is on page 34 in the new Rolling Stone Magazine. There is a section at the bottom called "What Are You Listening To?" Mariah is down there and it has a little picture of her from the homecoming concert. She says:
    "'The Gap Band -The Millennium Collection' My favorite songs are 'Outstanding' 'You Dropped A Bomb On Me' and 'Burn Rubber.' I fall to reminiscing of days gone by."
    Anyone got a scan of the picture?!?!?

    The question was:
    If you wanna listen to "Hero" and "DreamLover", go to this Mariah Carey album.
    *Noone knew. The players were Brian McKnight and some rockers. Brian didn't even know.
    Of course the answer was "Music Box".

    Lambz O Mariah
    Do you have something to say to MC?
    Hi Mariah fans!! Wassup? Well, the Lambz O Mariah is in the middle of starting a new Fan organization called LOMInc. (Lambz O Mariah Incorporated! Cute huh?!)

That’s our motto, in fact... “Giving something BACK to MC!” Anyway, we’ll tell you more about the organization after we finish putting it together because we’re going to need all of your help to get this running! It won’t work without the fans! Right now we want to tell you about the first project and it’s the LOM, Inc. FANLINE! We’ve set up an 800 number where you guys can call in and leave a short voice message for Mariah to hear! Wish her good luck for the filming of All That Glitters, tell her that you miss her or just call to say hello.

Please keep your messages positive and try to keep them short! They can only be 2 minutes in length!!! Please call in and give Mariah your love and support! And we promise, Mariah will be told about these messages by the end of the week! The deadline is Friday, and hurry because there is only 200 minutes on our account.

    SING A SONG MARIAH WILL LOVE TO HEAR
    One of Mariah's gifted songwriting lambs is in search of a talented voice to sing her song "Untouchable Fantasy" to be included on the "Mariah's Lambs Tribute of a Decade CD" in honor of Mariah's music recording artist career. If you know how to sing or make/write music to accompany lyrics then send an e-mail to Jim at dragonfire38@yahoo.com or Jen at Mssfijunke@aol.com and you will be sent the contest rules of how Jen (the songwriter) will choose the winner. There will be no losers either because everyone else who tries out will have the opportunity to collaborate on other original songs from other lyrically talented lambs that will be compiled on the tribute CD for our Diva's enjoyment!
    "Untouchable Fantasy" Listening to a love song that can't come close to the truth with you But I sing it to you anyway, because I feel that the love that I have is secretly venturing to you, If you don't see it now you will see it sooner or later catching up to you, Oh how I want it to... Chorus: And this is what happens when your heart takes control Your mind is filled with over imaginative thoughts And all the scenery turns to gold, for someone you cant grab a hold to Someone who keeps your hopes a far fetched dream Oh An untouchable fantasy Verse 2: My every breath somehow ties into you The reason I still exist at all My every song somehow fits into you The reason I still sing at all My every focus somehow is signaled out on to you The reason I stay stable at all But I think there is something still missing, something real But you will not allow your presence to die Keeping me tied down to you (Chorus) Verse 3: Oh how I perceive this danger Oh how I have this notion for caution But you disable me to be careful Letting me fling my heart and soul into you still I don't know what the real deal is or what I need you means to you But whatever it be, whatever can be seen better come true I can't obsess unreality anymore with you (Chorus) (What a shame this untouchable fantasy is of you) By: Jen 7/27/00. Always glad to help entertain our Queen Chop Mariah, Jim V.

    Mariah doing photo shoot for NEW Vanity Fair Magazine issue
    This is great news..not only do we now know for sure that Luis and MC are still together, but we know that Mariah just did a photo shoot for Vanity Fair's Magazine. How cool is that? Here is the article that Nini sent me:
    SHE'S A KID AT HEART
    PEOPLE ARE TALKING about Mariah Carey giving a surprisingly good performance filming "All That Glitters" in Toronto, finishing up that movie's soundtrack, posing for Vanity Fair's music issue and visiting young fans at Cabbagetown Youth Center. The kids drew pictures for Mariah and she decorated her trailer with the artwork. (Yeah, she still wears those hot pants and crocheted halter tops. But underneath, she's a child at heart herself.)
    But it's not all work and charity for Mariah. She'll relax in Mexico this weekend with her Latin lover, Luis Miguel.

    New Pics
    Well, there are four news pics in Gallery 33 today. Many thanks to berta_mac for the J-14 pic (the one with the MC head on the cartoon body..so cute) and the Star Magazine scan. Also, thanks to Shino for the one very small but nice pic of Mariah!

    National Examiner-August 15th
    There are three new pics of Luis and Mariah together in the National Enquirer. Thanks to Adam and Josh for this information and you can see the scan of the article in Gallery 33 thanks to Uwe.

    Eric Benet to Make Film Debut Opposite Mariah Carey
    Thanks to Nini for this article:
    HOLLYWOOD (Variety) - Eric Benet, the soul singer whose album "A Day in the Life" went platinum last year, will make his feature film acting debut opposite Mariah Carey in "All That Glitters."
    Benet, appropriately enough, plays a hot young singer in the Fox/Sony project, which Vondie Curtis-Hall ("Gridlock'd") is currently shooting in Toronto. Carey plays a singer who has to battle adversity on the way to success.
    In the acting realm, Benet previously had a recurring role on the WB sitcom "For Your Love." His first album, "True to Myself," was released in 1996. Another release is planned for early next year. He is engaged to actress Halle Berry.

    Teen Magazine
    Prinie told me that Teen Magazine is doing a poll for thier own teen awards coming up, NOT to be confused with the teen choice awards. Mariah is nominated for Favorite Female Artist and you can vote for her by sending in the page from the Teen Magazine or voting for her at:
    www.teenmag.com

    Error=Correction
    It seems that the wrong address was up yesterday for the AMCF Neil told me but here is the correct address:

    Madonna Tackles Mariah!!
    Well everytime I mention Mariah vs. Madonna on this page, I get a TON of Madonna fans attacking me. It seems that the comments that Madonna has made were all jokes and Madonna didn't really mean ANY of them, so I am told! However, sometimes comments like the ones below are not funny and I wouldn't consider them a joke, but whatever! Whatcha going to do? Here is some news that Maria sent me:
    Ok i was watching "Don't Quote Me" today and they played Madonna's new video and it said "I respect Madonna as an icon" -Mariah Carey and Madonna said "Mariah Carey needs to get a life" what is this??? Mariah said something nice about her and she can't even say anything nice about her! And if that wasn't enough "Rock and roll Jeopardy" had this audio clue and they said people say this when they overplay songs by Mariah Carey and the song was "We're Not Gonna Take It " by Twisted Sister and they all laughed.

    E-Zines Comment on Mariah
    Lauren was checking out her e-zine and there was an opinion question that said, "We asked you 'What is the absolute best album you've ever bought and why?' Here are your responses."

  • NSyncs4moi says...
    I'd have to say that the best album I have ever bought is "One Wish" by Deborah Cox. There are some completely amazing ballads on there and Deborah's voice is just soooo beautiful. Her voice is up there with Mariah and Whitney's, but she doesn't get enough recognition. She just expresses each song so well. That CD has some of the most incredible songs I've ever heard.
  • WhattaGurlWants says...
    Eek.. the best albums so far would have to be Sarah McLachlan "Surfacing", Mariah Carey "Rainbow" and Hanson "This Time Around" All three artists write their material, are very talented, co-produce their albums, the works. "Surfacing" is great to listen to when you're depressed, "Rainbow" is awesome whenever you need someone to put your feelings into the words you could never put them into, and "This Time Around" is great because of all the tunes and the lyrics are great.
  • Flute69 says...
    Mine would have to be Butterfly by Mariah Carey because on this album she shows who she really is and all the stress she's been through in her life.

    Billboard--Rainbow Not even 3x platinum
    Matt e-mailed Billboard.com the following question:
    I know that you are extremely busy but Mariah Carey's album Rainbow was certified 3x in December of 1999 and since then she has released two singles and gone on a world tour....what is up with Rainbow going 4X is she really close? MATT

    Their Reply:
    The album has yet to sell 3 million units according to SoundScan, so she's a long way away from 4x platinum. Keith

    Webpages
    A couple webmasters e-mailed me and asked me to post their website information on this site. So please, check out these sites :)

  • Forever A Fantasy

    Buy Rainbow from July 25th-August 1st response:
    Adrian wrote me and told me the following information. If this is true, I will not be here this Thursday to report the information but I will get it up this weekend when I come back from my short vacation! Here is what Adrian said:
    Hi Regina. I'm Adrian and I wanted to let you know that after all I don't think you failed at all (i'm from Venezuela but if I was living there in the US I would've helped for sure) The reason I'm telling you this is because well the Billboard charts are kinda messy and for example if you visit the Billboard page you'll see that when you go the a certain chart the Issue date is in a week advance so that's not actually this week. When you go to the charts section at www.mcarey.com they post all of her positions from Soundscan and Billboard and they're always different 'cause the positions posted at the official site ARE for THIS WEEK when at Billboard are for NEXT WEEK. I don't know if you understand a word I'm saying but I have an example (go get a calendar to help you see it better): the single CTTA went on sale on june 6 BUT the song didn't debut at the Hot 100 until the edition for june 24 as a Hot Shot Debut, so the sales for the single from the week 6th to the 13th of june were reflected on next week's edition which was on the 24. So if you bought Rainbow from the 25th of june till August 1st, those sales won't be reflected until next week's issue which would be on august 10, which is next thursday. I hope this is how it works and I think is actually how it works on Canada as well. if you visit this site http://www.canoe.ca/JamMusicCharts/SINGLES.html which is the chart positions in Canada it says: 05 AUGUST, 2000 and on the next line it says (FOR THE WEEK ENDING 29 JULY, 2000)
    It's kinda confusing and I've always tried to figure out when were the sales reflected on the chart and all that stuff until I came to the conclusion that this is how it works. I hope this "theory" is true and that Rainbow is on the next Billboard edition.
    And that's another thing! Unless Rainbow reached the Top 100 (not likely) we WON'T see it on the Billboard website 'cause in spite of the chart being called The Billboard 200, they only print the Top 100 positions. I'm sure Rainbow is back on the chart but we won't see it until the chart positions are posted at the official Mariah site on www.mcarey.com this next thursday (or maybe thursday after next thursday. I'm already all messed up!! LOL!)
    So as I said I don't think we've failed and that all the money and work was in vain. I really,really hope so!!! I can't find Eric's (Mariah carey Archives) e-mail and I'd really would like to let him know this 'cause he also posted the "failure" on his site so if you can forward this message to him that'd be nice. In fact, you might want to discuss this with the rest of the Mariah4 websites to see if they agree with what I said. Take care and keep up the good work, Adrian.

    They Played Mariah ALL DAY Boo!
    Here is what Gabby told me:
    Hey reg!!!!!!I went down the shore and i went inot this one shop they had all of mariahs playing all day.They started from her first album to now!I was in there the whole day! lol!!!!!! It was so cool! they do a diffrent person every weekend. and i told them about the mariah situation and they said that they would play CTTA more!Mabey more people will satart to like it!!!!!!!!!It was the best weekend! How was yours???? Talk to you soon!!!!!! your friend, Gabby:)

    Bliss on E-Bay
    TSpoon of Mariah told me that there is a "Bliss Promo" being sold on e-bay for $33. It is a 5 track promo cd made in Tawain and the tracks are:
    Tracklisting:
    1.BLISS (Sweet Radio Edit) 3:36
    2.BLISS (Luscious Delight Radio Mix) 3:53
    3.BLISS (Callout Hook #1) :15
    4.BLISS (Callout Hook #2) :10
    5.BLISS (Album Version) 5:44
    However, this promo is NOT official. Mariah is not releasing another single from the Rainbow CD because she is hard at work on her next album already and the making of her first starring movie! It's a shame people are scamming others.

    Mariah on College Jeopardy
    Ooops, who sent me this information? Mariah was a clue on college jeopardy last night. It was the $100 question in the category of "Rock Stars" and the question was "Jay-Z joins her on Heartbreaker" and the answer was "Mariah Carey!"

    New Pics
    Scott sent me some pictures of Mariah when she was at the America Airlines Arena in Miami on March 29th. I added 4 of them to a NEW Gallery..Gallery 33. Also, Zoli sent me a picture of Mariah singing Dreamlover. I already had this picture in the galleries but the other one had text over it. So, I added the full picture also, to Gallery 33. Check out all 5 pics, if you like!

    Billboard Charts
    A couple people have e-mailed me about this, including Jason. Some of you feel that Rainbow didn't come back on the charts last week because it will show up on the charts being sent out THIS Thursday! However, I won't be here to report on whether Rainbow is back on the charts this Thursday, so I am guessing if she does show up, please send the information to me and the rest of Mariah4

    Mariah and Phill together!
    Well I just downloaded it from Will Wards site entitled Mariah Carey World News! Basically, they just melted together Phil's and Mariah's voice and I didn't think it sounded too great, especially since Mariah is in the background and is hard to hear at times. Anyhow though, you can download two versions at Napster. The one I am talking about above and a version where half is Phill and half is Mariah. If you don't go to Napster, like me, just out Will's NEWS section on his page for the download!

    Rolling Stones
    I have two bits of information for you today from two different people concerning the Rolling Stones Magazine. Here goes:

  • Kristen:
    Hey Regina I have a little bit of MC news, u might already have it, but in the August 17th issue of Rolling Stone Mariah is #9 for the Hot Dance Singles Charts for CTTA/Crybaby...and she's #2 for the Top singles of 1990 for "Vision of Love"!!
  • Dan:
    Also, I don't know if anyone mentioned this, but Mariah is in the new Rollingstone. The Aug 31st Issue. She talks about what her favorite band is right now!
    (Anyone got the article and want to type it up? Is there a picture of Mariah in this?)

    What's My Name?

    Dear friend!
    It is the most important thing I've every asked from you.
    In the Hungarian media a lot of terrible things happened with Mariah.
    -Did you know that Mariah's part was cut out from the World Music Awards 2000?
    -Did you know that the biggest radiostations haven't started to play AAO?
    Please ask your readers to request this song on the most important Hungarian chart! Please write this to your site as soon as it possible.
    -First click here: http://www.zplusz.hu/sikerlista/index.jsp
    -Scroll down and choose AAO (at the moment it is #43)
    -Then click the orange-blue arrow that says, "Tovabb."

    DMCA!
    Well, I got the honor of meeting Sandra and Marlon at the NYC concert on April 11th. They run the DMCA club, a club that Mariah's loves and a club that has been around for some time now. Of course, it is a club for her Dutch fan but has hundreds of members and is now trying to get more fans from around the world. Majority of the article are in Dutch, but there are some in English now and plus the layout of the magazine itself, is amazing. I am now a member of this club and I urge the rest of you to join. For more information you can check out their website or e-mail them. For more information, read below!!!

    Welkom beste Mariah fan /Welcome dear Mariah fan,
    DMCA is an acronym for Dutch Mariah Carey Association, the Mariah Carey fan club in The Netherlands. This non-profit association has been founded in early 1997 to get more interaction between Mariah fans and between the fans and the record label. The DMCA is a fan club for (off course) Mariah Carey-fans and also run by Mariah-fans. The DMCA concentrates on the Dutch speaking part of Europe. At this moment the DMCA has over 350 members and is still growing.

    Four times a year the DMCA sends out a Dutch magazine titled Carey On. The magazine contains approximately 44 pages and its contents consists news and facts, interviews, a discography, stories from members, much info and lots more. We also have a merchandise section in the Carey On with special CD's, photographs, etc.

    Besides the periodical magazine, we send newsletters in case special events are coming up. Special events may be the announcement of a concert date, a promotional tour to radio- and tv-studio's and the release of albums/unscheduled singles. In case of the announcement of concert dates the DMCA will definitely know first. We have arranged that our members could buy tickets through the DMCA for Mariah's Rainbow-tour concert in Antwerp (Belgium) on February 14th 2000. The fan club also arranged transportation to and from Antwerp. The fans, that wanted to, could travel together in a coach. All the DMCA-members, including us, had a great time in Antwerp at the concert, as you can probably imagine.

    Earlier, on May 11th 1998, we had arranged that all the members (250 at that time) could join a Tv-show. You have probably seen this show (if you are Dutch), it was the TROS Tv-show. It was a wonderful experience and for most fans at that time that was the best day of their lives. After that time Mariah visited Holland more often and a lot of the members have met Mariah during her visits, because of the informing newsletters of the DMCA.

    Besides all this the fan club is the main medium to get in touch with other fans, to exchange information, to expand your CD collection or to swap video tapes. The DMCA has also a mailing list which makes a direct fan to fan contact possible (members only).

    We have met Mariah several times and the DMCA has full recognition by Mariah and Sony. She and her crew told us that they really appreciate our work. That's why the DMCA differs from other fan clubs. Mariah has already given her cooperation to our magazine Carey On twice: she wrote a message especially for the DMCA-members! We are positive that she will be happy to do that again for another issue of Carey On. We have personally given Mariah our magazines. So if you write a story for our magazine, remember that Mariah reads it too.

    The DMCA is one of the first (Mariah) fan clubs in the world. Many have tried to copy us, but there is only one DMCA.

    For more info visit our website (www.mariah.nu) or e-mail (dmca@dds.nl)

    With love & Carey On,
    DMCA (Marlon, Sandra and Jasper)

    AAO Remix
    Luke told me that a German station began playing a remix version of a version of AAO featuring Phil Collins and MC on the AAO song, but it is completly unofficial. Because of the Germany radioplay, Austria is now playing this version too. Luke says you can download it now but he didn't say where sadly, so hopefully I'll have that information for you tomorrow. Till then, enjoy three nice pics of Westlife and MC, thanks to Isa!

    Sweet Sweet Fantasy Baby!
    Here is what Beth told me:
    Just thought I'd let you know that I went to Rye Playland today. Isn't that where the Fantasy video was filmed? I went on the same rollercoaster that was in that in the video. It was awesome, although not scary at all. It's a great play to go and it's beautiful. I know why Mariah filmed there.

    Updates
    There is a new Pic O' The Week and a new Quote of the Week. Also, I am starting to update the Quotes page again every week, so you can check that out too, if you want!

    What's My Name?
    Melissa (DoMiSwEeT1@aol.com) e-mailed me and wanted to know what Mariah's name is in "All that Glitters!" Well, silly me, I forget. So does anyone know? IF so, please let Melissa and I know ASAP! Thanks!

    Correction:
    Orsi told me I had the wrong link, so here is the information again, corrected :) Sorry about that!
    Orsi would like you all to request MC on the Hungary music channel called "Z+." It pretty much refuses to play the video AAO. Their video countdown just recently put it on the offers list so Orsi would like you all to help out by requesting it.
    Here's how you help out MC in Hungary:

  • First click here!
  • Scroll down and choose AAO (at the moment it is #43)
  • Then click the orange-blue arrow that says, "Tovabb."

    Mariah in Coyote Ugly!
    Here is what Ricardo told me:
    This movie was partly about a girl named Violet who wrote songs and wanted famous people to sing them. She recorded one of her songs, sent it to a music company and said: "I just want you to send this song I made to Mariah or Whitney". But the receptionist in the movie said no. It's small, but cool. The person who wound up singing the song that the girl wrote was Leann Rhimes.

    Q102 Plays Heartbreaker Again

    I think that we should have a site that specifically gives out Mariah Awards. And not wack picture awards but good tight awards, or rewards for creativity, reporting and personality rewards. Also rewards for consistency, i.e are the news stories true, can they be verified, or are they jsut rumours, and also, fan awards. It would be tight, and if anyone is interested please email me at :

    Mariah in Toroto Paper
    Moneira e-mailed me and told me that MC was mentioned in the GTA (GTA=Greater Toronto Area) on Friday, August 4th! There is a pic of her from the Billboard awards and the article reads:
    MARIAH CAREY ROLE GOES TO LOCAL ACTRESS
    By Vanessa Thomas
    A mystery Toronto girl is believed to have been hired to play a young version of pop diva Mariah Carey in her new movie, leaving a jilted 11-year-old American actress in tears. Bianca Collins of Los Angeles, a seasoned stage actress with Broadway experience including Annie and The Capeman, had been excited about playing the role of the young Carey in the film All That Glitters now shooting in Toronto. But she was abruptly canned from the movie by Carey, reports say, when Carey spotted another little girl in Toronto. "Mariah Carey wanted another little girl so they bought her out of the movie," said Bianca's mother Anita. Joe Everett, a publicist for the film, said it wasn't Carey's decision, it was the director. "The director liked her better for the role," she said. "Maybe he found her more appropriate or maybe she had a better look, I don't know. This kind of thing happens all the time." The film has yet to reveal the identity of the local actress who was won the coveted child role. Bianca's mother broke the news to her daughter who was flying to Toronto this week. "When I told her she started crying and crying and saying, 'Why, why, why did this have to happen to me?'" her mother said. "Everybody loved her and she totally loved her role."

    Look it's MC on my TV!
    Isabelle was watching tv yesterday and she saw a commercial for Mariah's Against All Odds Single. How cool is that :)

    Luis and MC
    Mariah's publicist has confirmed that Mariah and Luis have not broken up Christina told me. The reason they are not together at the moment is due to work reasons!

    Radio News
    Dan told me the following:
    I was just listening 2 wkss Hartford CT. kiss 95.7 and the Hollywood report in the morning they were talking about Mariah and the whole Mariah firing the 11 year old girl and stuff and the girl Courtney said Mariah should do something nice for her, and Ross the other guy there said "no Mariah shouldn't what so ever, Hollywood is Hollywood and people get fired and that 11 year old girl should get over herself" it was something like that, I Don't think Mariah would have done it if the other girl wasn't better you know? And Ross is right though Hollywood is Hollywood and people get fired.

    MClogo Mariah's Dancers for ATG!
    Thanks to my Mariah4 Partner Elin for this next aticle!
    Mariah Carey's "All That Glitters" movie started filming here yesterday, but some local dancers were still sweating over whether they will get hired for the film.

    Loosely based on "A Star Is Born," the picture features Carey as an '80s club singer who becomes a megastar. Choreographer Neisha Folkes held auditions at the downtown Randoph Dance Theatre Monday morning to fill 20 dancer spots. More than 100 fit-looking hopefuls showed up.

    Folkes was searching for hip, young male and female movers and shakers. That left me out on so many counts I lost track. "And you'd have to wear a G-string," said Folkes at the try out, adding some playfulness to her mockery.

    Some of the selected dancers -- they'll be notified by phone tomorrow -- will appear in a video shoot within the movie. The guys will wear only G-strings and body paint. "And they have to be strong, masculine and sexy," said Folkes who will also appear in "All That Glitters" as a dance instructor.

    How tough is it to pick? "I can almost see them coming through the door," admitted Folkes, a Juilliard and Alvin Ailey troupe graduate.

    One of them was 21-year-old Rhett George, a graduate of Brampton's Mayfield School For The Arts. He's currently working in "The Lion King" ensemble as a dancer while under-studying Simba. He's an eye catcher. But like most dancers, he's not banking on the job.

    "If I get it," George said of the "All That Glitters' gig," "I'm hoping I can work something out with the "Lion King" scheduling." His first professional job was beating out the hundreds of dancers who tried out for the Toronto production of "Rent" five years ago.

    Melissa Leifer, 18, has less experience and was less confident about her chances. "I'm not really sure what to expect," she said, just before she was called on to dance before Folkes.

    Leifer has been dancing for 10 years and will start the Ryerson dance program in the fall. In the meantime, she auditions two or three times a week around town.

    Her approach? "Look like you're having fun," she suggested offering a begrudging half-smile, "even through all this stress."

    Q102 plays MC
    A while back, I reported that someone called Q102 and told them about the "Mariah Situation!" They said they would play Heartbreaker more often, and PianomanGreg128@gateway.net told me that yesterday, they were playing Heartbreaker Junior Vasquez's club mix on the noon workout! Coolio huh?

    Melissa told me that MC is looding at "The Best Superstar" poll and she would like you all to go and vote for her!

    Mariah is forever In my heart
    Mariah is forever The one for me

    Mariah is forever The only one I will ever love and remember forever!
    I am a proud Mariah Carey fan since 1990. and I will continue until the day I Pass Away.

    Fan Story
    Well I got this e-mail today and it was pretty cool so read below:
    Hey Boo! This is Amy (sexchop, MariahzGirl) remember me? Anyway, me and my friends from the Lambz O' Mariah - Jakki (CuteChop, Glitterz) and Heather (4EverLookingIn, SSSLM-Chop) took a Mariah-related trip to NYC!!! We spent 10 days there doing nothing but Mariah stuff!! We went to TRL (did you see us! we were there!) with our Mariah Carey t-shirts on and holding up lambs and signs that said "WE LOVE MARIAH CAREY!". We figured it was about time somebody showed her some love on that show, so we did our best!!! We also went to the church Mariah was married in and we paid a couple of visits to Sony in fact. We wore our Mariah shirts right into the building and proceeded to tell every worker there that they should have more Mariah displays up and that they should treat Mariah better! LOL! And get this.. as we were leaving the bhilding the first time we saw Tommy Mottolla leaving the carport!! He had his window down and he was talking to the security lady! We started yelling his name and when he saw that we had Mariah shirts on he started laughing, rolled up his window and drove off! But don't worry, I got a picture of his car which I'm going to scan for you later. :) I don't know how relevant this is, but I thought it was kind of interesting to see!!!! New York is a fun city if you're a Mariah fan :)

    New Page Part 2
    Okay Wendy is creating a page dedicated to Mariah and Madonna. I know there are some Madonna and MC fans that visit this page so you probaly would want to check out this fab page!! Queens of Pop Webpage--Click Here to check it out!

    Mariah & Luis-Breakup?
    Nini is one of my very good friends and she e-mailed and told me that "El Gordo Y La Flaca" did report that they were secretly married but then reported that it was fake afterwards. So she believes that the breakup between Luis and MC is possibly true. I seriously don't think any of this breakup thing is true though and if it is, let's respect their privacy and not spread this any further. This is the last time I will mention this topic in the NEWS section because it's Mariah's personal life and we should respect that!!

    Cartoon/Story
    I got this cartoon from Aaron and he told me the story behind it too. I know I have to update the artwork galleries still, so please don't get mad at me if I havn't gotten your artwork up yet. Anyhow though, here is the cartoon and the story that goes along with it:

    i made it for the Las Vegas concert, but people told me that you wouldn't be able to bring posters.so i left it at home and then when i was at the concert there were lots of posters. then after the concert my mother and i waited with about 30 other fans in the back where her limo was for about 2 and1/2 hours and she came out at 3'o clock i think.when she was in her limo i saw her but my mom had the camera and she wasn't in the croud. i was like 3 feet away and she reached for my tourbook to sign it but her body guard pushed me outta the way i was ssssssssssssooooooooooooo madd. and also when jack came out and everyone was running for Mariah i yelled "Jack!, Jack! and he turned and looked at me. it was soooo cute. i have some pictures of Mariah when she is coming out to her limo. they are dark but you can make out her pink dress. and i have some concert pics that are kinda far away. i'll send them if you like.bye

    Little girl get's booted.
    I agree that it is NOT Mariah's fault that the little girl got booted from the film. Read below to find out what I am talking about and thanks to my Mariah4/boyfriend Anderz for this information!
    Mariah Carey's movie "All That Glitters" has only been shooting in Toronto for two days and already there's trouble. Bianca Collins — an 11 year-old stage actress with tons of Broadway experience including starring with Marc Anthony in "The Capeman" — had been hired to play a young version of Carey's character, an aspiring singer. Yesterday, Collins' mother Anita received a call telling her that young Bianca — who lives in Los Angeles and was over the moon about getting the part — has been abruptly fired. This, despite the fact that Collins had been through five auditions before she'd been hired, according to her manager and agent. What happened? Word is that Carey spotted another little girl in Toronto and hired her on the spot. "Bianca is devastated," says her mother Anita Collins. "They had said be ready to fly out Tuesday, today, and we were. Then we got the call. Bianca earned the role — but it was basically Mariah Carey pulled a fast one." A rep for Mariah insists the singer is not to blame. "The director [Vondie Curtis Hall] had never even met the little girl. She met with the casting people three times. The director found a little girl he liked and the director hired her." Collins's agent, Ellen Dranch, who's negotiating her client's departure, said only: "This happens all the time. It's the nature of the business."

    Final Note
    A BIG THANKS to my boytoy Anderz for the new "News" title gif. Isn't he a "sweatheart?" Hee hee...

    Do You Hear What I Hear? It's Mariah
    Well today is the last day I will do this section. I already lost 2 entrees for this section because my computer shut down before I got to save the page :( So sorry about that!! Anyhow, here are some other entrees:

  • Renzo
    Hey Reg! The other day I went to see Scary Movie and there is this one part in the movie where all these people are standing around this guys locker. In his locker, he had a bunch of PICS of hot ladies! LoL! Well, being the observant one that I am I noticed a PIC of Mariah in there! it looks like it was a PIC from sweetheart or something. I didn't get a very good look at it 'cause it was only there for about 5 seconds.
  • Beetleboy
    i just got back from vacation down at myrtle beach, and this one day, i went in this store called waves and i heard one of mariah's songs playing, and i got all happy, then another one came on, then another!! they were playing the #1's cd, and it was weird cuz it's not like a music store or anything, it's like this huge gift shop kinda place, so i was all happy. then, when i was at the amusement park, i believe it was there, they were playing Thank God I Found You. it was so depressing there cuz i met this guy that i will never ever ever see again :*(

    Don't Quote Me
    Mariahlamby (aka danielle) and Michelle both told me that the Heartbreaker Video was on VH1 last night. Danielle told me that nice things were NOT said about Mariah on this show and Michelle told me two times you can check it out, if you missed it:
    August 3rd..."Don't Quote Me" on VH1 at 6 PM
    August 5th..."Don't Quote Me" on VH1 at 9:30 am

    MTV Snubs Mariah
    Okay Dan and Exstink sent me this article which you can check out yourself by clicking here! At the bottom, there is a section where you can make comments to the authors. This author started out being nice to MC, but then insulted her at the last line, which made me mad! I just inserted the MC mentions of the article too, by the way! Read for yourself:
    Clip Up
    The MTV video nominations snubbed some of the year's best. No Doubt, TLC, and even the much maligned Mariah Carey deserve a nod, says Kristen Baldwin
    Last week, MTV announced its nominations for the 17th annual Video Music Awards, and as usual the list included the good (Toni Braxton's '''He Wasn't Man Enough''' for Best Female Video), the bad (six nominations for nasty knucklehead Eminem's ''The Real Slim Shady''), and the inevitable (Britney! Britney! Britney!).

    Of course, there were some puzzling nominations as well: Since when is Ricky Martin's glorified performance clip for ''Shake Your Bon Bon'' one of the year's Best Male Videos? And the ass-crack fest that is Sisqo's ''Thong Song'' video -— does that really merit nominations in the Hip-Hop, Dance, New Artist, Viewers' Choice, AND Best Video from a Film categories? The most disturbing part of the nominations, as always, were the videos that were overlooked by my fellow voters.

    ''Heartbreaker,'' Mariah Carey featuring Jay-Z
    Normally, Mariah Carey's videos make me want to gouge my eyes out, but this candy colored clip -— featuring a Mariah on Mariah catfight, a ''Grease'' inspired cartoon, and an irrepressibly catchy rap interlude from Jay-Z (truly the best part of the whole song) -— was arguably Ms. Carey's finest ever. The worst part is, since she didn't score any nominations, Mariah may not even show up at the VMAs, and that'll deprive viewers the pleasure of making fun of her sure to be supertrashy outfit.

    Special Message
    Want to see an exclusive message from Anderz and I? Well then click below:

    Bye Bye Bye Luis?!?
    Okay a couple of you e-mailed me saying that "El Gordo Y Lo Flaco" reported that Mariah and Luis have broken up! Nini and MCFAN2G told me that the show featured video footage of MC and Luis with exclusive photos too. They said the couple havn't been seen together for some time now. Okay two things show that this article is most likely FALSE. One, there was a recent article where Mariah said Luis and her were NOT broken up. She said that she was shooting her movie right now and that they communicate on the phone. Two, wasn't the show "El Gordo Y Lo Flaco" the show that said Luis and MC were secretly married? I rest my case! This is just another rumor and you know how MC hates rumors, so I think we should end it!
