Mariah Bares Some - Not All - for Playboy // 6:59 PM EST Updated by Maggie

Mariah Carey has emancipated herself from most—but not all—of her clothing as the cover girl for Playboy's March issue.

Leaked photos from the shoot made their way onto the Internet last week, showing a shapely (and undoubtedly airbrushed) Carey strutting her stuff in a skimpy flesh-colored bathing suit.

Rumors that the singer would be making an appearance in Playboy had been floating around for several weeks. On Friday, a Playboy spokesperson confirmed to E! News that Carey would indeed be featured on the cover of the magazine, which hits newsstands on Feb. 9.

Carey's spread will accompany a feature on the "Sexiest Comeback," for which she provided the answers to 20 "revealing" questions.

The "We Belong Together" singer's decision to pose for the magazine comes on the heels of her legal battle to block adult-film actor Mary Carey from trademarking her name for video and audio recordings.

In court documents filed last month, the singing Carey expressed concern that her fans might confuse her with the Carey featured in oeuvres such as Lesbian Big Boob Bangeroo 2—a contention laughed off by the porn star.

"It seems humorous that a musician as popular as Mariah feels her millions of fans might purchase a Mary Carey adult DVD instead of a copy of The Emancipation of Mimi because they are confused by the name," the other Carey told avn.com last month.

However, with her foray into not-quite-nude modeling, it's possible that the Grammy-winning Carey could be upping the odds of being mistaken for her porn star nemesis. (A clever legal strategy, perhaps?)

Aside from taking a turn in Playboy, Carey is up for two awards at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards next month: Best R&B Song and Best R&B Female Vocal Performance for "Don't Forget About Us."

Carey is also rumored to be making a special guest appearance on American Idol at some point this season, though nothing has been confirmed by the talent competition.

Mariah's Playboy Cover Revealed // 2:15 PM EST Updated by Maggie

Rap-Up.com has revealed the cover of Mariah's appearance on Playboy's March issue. The article is titled The Sexiest Comeback. Mariah Carey: A Revealing 20 Q.

"Mariah Carey graces the cover of Playboy’s March 2007 “Sex and Music” issue on sale February 9. The photos were shot by Markus Klinko & Indrani, who also did Mariah’s Emancipation of Mimi album packaging. Can you see the similarities? Mariah does not pose nude inside the magazine (here’s wishing), but we are still surprised she agreed to appear in the first place. MC looks incredibly airbrushed, but still hot."

Mariah Miscellaneous // 2:08 PM EST Updated by Maggie

  • Upcoming singer Typheon has a new single called "Shake It Off" which many are afraid may have too many similarities to Mariah's hit song. "Whether many people know it or not Mariah Carey actually has a song titled 'Shake It Off,'" says the Stabroek News, "and though we are making no comparisons here, it is a risk for a local to debut a song with the same title, given how popular Mariah's song is and how good it is."

  • The NY Post reportst that producer, rapper, and long-time friend of Mariah Jermaine Dupri is in talks with Universal Music to join its Island Def Jam team. While this is not officially confirmed, music executives are said to be in talks about bringing him to join LA Reid's team.

  • V V S Films has acquired all Canadian rights to TENNESSEE, the upcoming feature from acclaimed producer Lee Daniels (Monster's Ball / The Woodsman / Shadowboxer). "We're very happy to continue our successful relationship with Lee Daniels and his company" stated Ernie Grivakis, president and CEO of V V S Films "He's a talented producer with a proven track record and we're confident that TENNESSEE will be another winner."
    Principal Cast: James D'Arcy, Ethan Peck, Mariah Carey, Bernie Mac

  • IMDB.com now lists Bill Sage in the cast of Tennessee, presumably replacing James D'Arcy, who no longer is listed on Lee Daniels' Tennessee page. Sage worked with Mariah on Glitter, where he had a small part playing Billie Frank's father.

    "Tennessee" Updates // 1:51 PM EST Updated by Maggie

    New Cast Member
    Melissa Benoist, the Post's Ovation Award winner for best younger actor of 2006, has landed a major role in the film "Tennessee," starring James D'Arcy and Mariah Carey. It's the story of two brothers on a road trip in search of their estranged father.

    Benoist plays the teen love of D'Arcy's character. She begins filming Valentine's Day in New Mexico, then in Tennessee. Her agent, Patty Kingsbaker, said she's trying to work it out so Benoist might still be able to star as scheduled in the Town Hall Arts Center's "Footloose," opening Feb. 23.

    Mariah Carey Film to Shoot in NM
    Tennessee, starring Mariah Carey, James D'Arcy and Ethan Peck, will be shot in and around Albuquerque this week through Feb. 13, Gov. Bill Richardson announced Monday.

    The production expects to hire more than 50 local New Mexico crew members. Aaron Woodley is directing with Lee Daniels producing.

    Tennessee follows the path of two brothers who must return to their hometown in east Tennessee from Albuquerque to look for their estranged, abusive father when one of them is diagnosed with leukemia and desperately needs a life-saving bone marrow transplant.

    Mariah the 6th Richest Woman in Entertainment // 1:55 PM EST Updated by Maggie

    Forbes Magazine has released the 2007 list of the 20 Richest Women in Entertainment. Mariah comes in at #6 at $225 million, behind Celine Dion and Madonna. Oprah Winfrey tops the list with an estimated worth of $1.5 billion.

    Mariah Carey
    Rank: 6
    Net Worth (in $ millions): 225
    Age: 36
    Marital Status: single
    Kids: 0
    Source: music

    The Long Island songbird's career exploded in 1990 with her debut album released under the guidance of Columbia Records' boss Tommy Mottola. (The two endured a tempestuous five-year marriage before divorcing in 1998.) Her career was seriously derailed with the 2001 release of Glitter, a critically slammed semi-autobiographic soundtrack and movie. A year later, Columbia bought out her contract for a reported $28 million. No one could have anticipated her extraordinary comeback in 2005 with the bestselling The Emancipation of Mimi. To date, the pop diva has sold 160 million albums.

    Methodology: Net worth estimates were arrived at by tallying the total earnings, including salaries, record sales, tours, merchandising and royalties over the course of a career. When relevant, we included real estate holdings, shares and other assets. A conservative rate of return was applied, less taxes and agent fees. The list is limited to those female celebrities active in their professional lives.

    News Tidbits // 1:26 PM EST Updated by Maggie

  • American Idol judge and producer Randy Jackson says of the contestants "I have heard no one yet to ever sing a Mariah Carey song and do it justice." He also mentioned that Mariah may be a guest on the show this season in an interview with Inquirer:

    You were quoted as saying on Entertainment Weekly that you're going to call up Mariah Carey and ask her to ... mentor the kids and sing on the show. Is that going to happen?
    I don't know. I've been thinking about it. We've tossed it around a bit. I think she'd be great because, for me, she and Whitney and Celine are the three great divas, I mean some of the better singers of our time.

    Have you talked with Mariah about it?
    I mentioned it to her. We'll see. You've got to stay tuned on that one.

    She was open to it?
    Yes. I mean, definitely. So we'll see what happens.

  • The NY Post reports that Mariah will be called to testify in defense of jeweller Jacob Arabov who is on trial for money-laundering. P. Diddy, Jay-Z, and David Beckham are also reported to be on the witness list.

  • Mr. Blackwell's 47th Annual Worst-Dressed List placed Mariah at #5 in the 2006 lineup. "Carey was dubbed a 'Fashion Pariah' and the 'Queen of Catastrophic Kitsch.'"

  • Liz Smith defended Mariah after she was placed on Blackwell's list:
    "I SEE that Mr. Blackwell put Mariah Carey right up there on his worst-dressed list, but some people think this is a compliment. I did recently see a photo of Mariah in Aspen. She was outdoors. It was snowing. She was wearing skin-tight, cleavage-baring black leather from head to toe. Four inch heels. She was holding a glass of champagne. Why do we love Mariah? Because this talented star doesn't pretend to be the girl next door!"

    Liz Smith was also on Fox News discussing Mariah while in Aspen. Check out the video below - many thanks to Moony!

    Mariah to be a Guest on 'American Idol'? // 5:13 PM EST Updated by Maggie

    Last year, Prince. This year, Paul McCartney and Mariah Carey?

    As “American Idol” starts singing again Tuesday, those connected with the Fox blockbuster acknowledge few limits when it comes to guest stars or ratings or product spinoffs. Or even rampant enthusiasm.

    . . .

    McCartney, an iconic figure who’s an impressive “get” for any venture, is being courted and is rumored to be part of the new season. Carey may also end up on the guest list.

    “Nothing’s locked,” Frot-Coutaz said of the ex-Beatle. “We’ve had discussions with him over the years. It’s always a matter of making it work.”

    In Carey’s case, record producer-cum-judge Jackson may be the key: He and the singer are friends and have a long professional association. Jackson said they have “tossed it around a bit” but have yet to set her appearance.

    Read the full article here.

  • From Entertainment Weekly:
    Expect more marquee names as [American Idol's] season 6 progresses, and if all goes according to plan, look for them to reach an epic scale. Confides Cowell, ''Everyone wants Paul McCartney, and there's a chance this year. It would be fantastic to do the Beatles songbook.''

    [Randy] Jackson, who's always boasting about his connections, says he's finally ready to start calling in some favors: ''I don't cross my 'Idol' life and my producer life that much, but I may call Mariah this season and say, 'Yo, come on, dude. Get in this game.'''

    Jasmine's Juice // 10:59 PM EST Updated by Maggie

    “I can’t talk about MC’s other gifts as they’re a bit naughty”

    Just before Christmas I flew out of Heathrow to NYC's JFK airport to begin my yearly adventure with my Xmas cousin Mariah Carey.

    Once settled in MC’s Manhattan apartment, 15 of us (including MC's bestest mates Maryann, Rachel, Trey Lorenz, and brothers Shawn and Mikey), took off in a convoy of black Maybachs to the sound of carols as we made our way to a private airfield where a Christmas-themed jet awaited us.

    We toasted the start of our adventure with DP champagne as we headed to Aspen, Colorado. On our decent into Aspen the snow fell wildly and we could see reindeer and wild horses running about beneath us - it looked so cool!

    Our first night was spent exploring Mimi’s lodge in the mountains where we were staying: A marvellous six-bedroom house.

    Many 4am-moments saw us swigging the Pinot in MC’s jacuzzi with the night sky twinkling above us as Evil G, MC's brother Shawn, played the best hip-hop sets on his iPod.

    MC encouraged us all to slip into our bikinis – with the boys in their trunks - and jump in and out of the house hottub and snow.

    Our housekeeper Maggie woke us daily with the aroma of breakfast cooking and boy could she rustle up a fingerlickin’ brekky!

    On our second night in Aspen MC had a surprise planned. She had 50 kids from a special care home driven from Denver to Aspen where she arrived with Santa on a sleigh pulled by nine real reindeer. The kids had the time of their lives as MC and Santa gave them gifts of cameras and CD players.

    The following night our really cute 18-year-old driver Cody told me that Method Man and Redman were performing that very night. Yes. Really. This really rich, white, city had a hip-hop scene! It had to be seen to be believed so I told MC and we excitedly went to Bellyup, where the troublesome duo were in the flesh.

    The club show was ultra fun but not a touch on a real gully London street vibe.

    Twenty of us spent Xmas day opening gifts, screaming, eating and lazing about in our Xmas T-shirts.

    Amongst my gifts were a Gucci candle, Juicy couture socks and bracelet, a Ralph Lauren cashmere scarf, a sexy little black dress, a shower scrubber with ‘nuff accessories, a sequin clutch handbag, Elton John fireside aroma rocks, lots of silly board games, and some very pip jewellry.

    I gave MC some cute undies (just the type she likes), a solid silver yo-yo (engraved with ‘MC you make my world go round, JD’) which she showed off doing tricks with, a very sexy slinky dress by London designer Kesh who made it extra low at the front and back with a big bow at the booty and a diamond hanging slinkily down MC’s back (which she paraded in), a blinging gold and grey Rolling Stones lips T-shirt from Topshop and the one she really loved - a black hoodie graffiti tagged by London-based graff artist Batlow who blazed the piece up with pink and violet diamonte! Heavy! (I can't talk about her other gifts as they're a little naughty!)

    On our last night we attended a party for Aspen Peak magazine, where MC was the guest of honour. She wore the Rolling Stones lips T-shirt and looked ultra fly with her limited edition not-in-the-stores-yet Louis Vuitton boots.

    Once MC had worked the red carpet the party could really begin as she held court in the DJ booth with DJ Suss who was flown out from NYC specially. Suss threw down crazy beats but as you can imagine the Aspen crowd weren't familiar with all the ones we were going crazy to. (In fact they requested stuff like Harry Connick Junior. Sheesh.)

    Then Seal and his missus supermodel Heidi Klum joined us and we all hung out, danced and chatted for a bit - they were SO sweet.

    At midnight we sped off to the Caribou Club before being whisked straight to Rifle (private) airfield at 2am for our flight back to NYC.

    MC has given me a lifetime of memories and adventures that I won't believe took place when I look back at 80 years of age!

    My holiday adventure didn’t end there, eight hours later we jumped on another jet en route to South Africa for Oprah Winfrey’s New Year’s Eve party.

    Mary is Still Carey // 10:25 PM EST Updated by Maggie

    An internet report published this morning indicated that a judge ruled in favor of Mariah Carey in her attempt to prevent adult star Mary Carey from trademarking the stage moniker she's been using for years. According to Mary's attorney, who is assisting her with the trademark application, the report is not true. There has not been a ruling in the case.

    Indeed, Mary hasn't even filed her response to Mariah's objection. Mary has plenty of time to file that response before a Judge would normally rule. So, as of now, there is no ruling saying Mary Carey cannot trademark her stage name and we're told the web report indicating otherwise is being taken down. Although she hasn't filed her formal, official response with the trademark office, you'll recall Mary already shared her thoughts with us on Mariah's attempted intervention into the trademark process.

    As for Mariah, besides being busy trying to make sure no one confuses her with a porn star, she's going to reveal a few things to Playboy in March. But, she won't be emancipating any body parts. Ms. Mariah won't be posing nude, but a source tells us she will be on the cover as she's interviewed in the issue and history shows that Playboy cover models are typically scantily clad. So, we'll see if Mariah comes out looking more like Mimi or Mary when it hits new stands in a couple months.

  • Mariah's brother, Morgan Carey, is producing the first animated ringtone for his reggae artist, Skull. "Boom Di, Boom Di is a sex you up joint, so I knew we needed the right vehicle to drive that message home," said Carey via a statement. "There is a glut of graphic enabled cell phones in the marketplace this year and very little visually compelling ringtone content available for them. I felt this was a great opportunity to exploit that shortage while establishing a strong fanbase for Skull. We anticipate turning a profit before the album even hits stores." Read more on Vibe.com.

But it's not just about the classic shearling-lined Ugg anymore -- there's a new-generation style turning up on trendsetting feet.

What do you think of the Fluff Momma? Would you wear a pair?
