Anytime you need a friend, Mariah will be there // 2:51 AM EST Updated by Lynn

The Best of Both Worlds tour, starring the R & B singer R. Kelly and the rapper Jay-Z, came to a crashing end yesterday afternoon, one day after a member of Jay-Z's entourage was said to have attacked Mr. Kelly with pepper spray. The singer was dumped from the show yesterday after Jay-Z said he would not share the stage with him.

Last night at the Garden, Jay-Z performed to a sold-out crowd, rounding up industry friends to take Mr. Kelly's place, including P. Diddy, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes, Method Man and Red Man. "I want you to know that one monkey don't stop the show," Jay-Z told the cheering crowd. Click here to read the entire article.

*According to Frank Giallanza who was at the concert, Mariah and Busta performed "I Know What You Want" to the delight of the fans.

Mariah in Magazines // 1:37 AM EST Updated by Lynn

Click to enlarge
In People magazine, November 8th issue, page 65: "Girls night out. Get ready for Sex and the City. I hear Mariah Carey, Patti LaBelle, Missy Elliott, Alicia Keys, Macy Gray and comedienne Mo’Nique are in discussions to star in a new independent feature called Ladies’ Night for producer Lee Daniels (Monster’s Ball). The story follows a group of Philadelphia women who spend a night on the town discussing sex, weight, careers and, of course, love. Like the inexpensive Monster’s Ball, which won an Oscar for Halle Berry, the film’s budget will be small – less than $3 million – meaning the women will have no assistants or hairdressers on the set. Not only are they are up to the task, sources say that Beyoncé recently inquired about participating in the project as well."

In the November 8th InTouch Weekly magazine, page 85: "Mariah leaves a monster tip! Waiters and waitresses: If Mariah Carey sits at your table, you’re in luck. The songbird tipped $2,000 – on a $2,000 bill – at New York’s Kittichai Restaurant. Maybe she was trying to impress her companions – Usher and Naomi Campbell!"

Mariah was also featured in the recent issues of In Style Magazine ("Mariah Carey sings along with a Hello Kitty Radio, CD and cassette player"), New York Post ("Dressed for Usher's Roaring 20s birthday party at the Rainbow Room, Mariah Carey's homage to a flapper is a little short on authenticity"), and New York Daily News ("Mariah Carey models a marshmallow sundae at Usher's birthday party").

Carey makes another attempt at acting // 6:00 PM EST Updated by Will

Mariah Carey is planning to star in another movie - undeterred by her 2001 all-round flop Glitter.

The Honey star, whose '80s-themed movie was panned by critics and avoided by fans, is planning to team up with fellow singers Patti LaBelle, Missy Elliott, Alicia Keys and Macy Gray, as well as comedienne Mo'Nique for independent film Ladies' Night.

The story will follow a group of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, women who spend the night on the town discussing sex, weight, careers and love.

The low-budget movie, a project of Monster's Ball producer Lee Daniels, has also attracted interest from Beyonce Knowles, who's inquired about participating.

Mariah Mentions // 1:49 AM EST Updated by Lynn

From NY Post: Sean Combs jettisoned the "Gone With the Wind" theme for his Nov. 4 birthday party in favor of "The Royal Birthday Ball" at Cipriani Wall Street, where he marked his 30th five years ago with a jam-packed, star-studded soiree. The super-tight, secret guest list is said to include Mariah Carey and Bruce Willis.

From Yahoo! Launch News: Christina Aguilera is planning her Hollywood career very carefully and is adamant she won't make a film too similar to her own life, like Spears' flop 'Crossroads', Eminem's semi-autobiographical '8 Mile' or Mariah Carey's 'Glitter'.

From SoulShine: New York City artist David Morales has his future planned out for him. The DJ recently kicked off his world tour, which will keep him moving around the globe for an entire year. In addition to working as a solo artist, David Morales is a well-respected producer/remixer. He has worked with the likes of Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, and Eric Clapton, among others.

From New York Times: Bringing the A-List to Its Knees. Kathy Griffin calls herself a D-list celebrity and is proud of it. Ms. Griffin, a comedian who has a growing audience in clubs, at colleges and on late-night television, said she will probably never rise into the C-list because she offends so many celebrities. Just listen to her: "I love Mariah Carey. Remember the breakdown? I loved the breakdown. She had that breakdown, and they wheeled her out like Hannibal Lecter to sing at the Super Bowl."

From USMC: Lance Cpl. Elizabeth Quinones, 6th Communication Battalion, Brooklyn, N.Y., sings the National Anthem at a Hispanic Heritage Celebration in Garden City, N.Y., October 14. Quinones is a 33-year-old activated reservist who has spent most of her civilian life singing and acting professionally. She has sung backup for Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey and Marc Anthony, and she has co-starred in an off-Broadway production.

"U Make Me Wanna" Updates // 3:09 PM EST Updated by Will

"U Make Me Wanna", the new single from Jadakiss and Mariah, is making an impact at video and radio outlets around the world.

The song is #4 this week on AOL Music's Most-watched Videos. It is also #77 on Launch's Top 100 Videos and #25 on their Top 25 Rap Videos chart. You can raise that position by raiting the video at launch.com.

In South Africa, the song is the biggest gainer on Metro FM's Top 40 countdown. The single, which debuted at #37 two weeks ago, climbed 16 places to land at just outside the top 20 at #21 this week. Metro FM is South Africa's biggest R&B/Hip-Hop radio station. Local residents can catch the countdown every Saturday between 9am and 12pm.

Stateside, "U Make Me Wanna" has accumulated over 18 million audience impressions (9 million from Urban stations and an additional 8 million from Rhythmic stations) from the play it has been receiveing on channels across the nation.

The single was the #1 listener-requested song on Monday, October 25 at KPWR (Power 106) on both Tito's Top 4 @ 4 and Felli's 7 @ 7 countdowns. If you are a Power 106, listener be sure to cast your vote for "U Make Me Wanna" today!

Usher-ing In Another Hit // 2:56 PM EST Updated by Will

Usher, who first recorded at the tender age of 14, has become the first artist since Mariah Carey to enjoy four consecutive US #1s. Carey’s own run eventually reached five #1s in a row, encompassing ‘Fantasy’, ‘One Sweet Day’, ‘Always Be My Baby’, ‘Honey’ and ‘My All’.

With much to celebrate, it will come as no surprise to hear that Usher last week enjoyed a lavish 26th birthday party at New York’s Rainbow Room. Based on a Roaring 20s theme, the bash allowed the singer to play host to a stellar guest list including former mentor Jermaine Dupri, legendary soul diva Patti Labelle and supermodel Naomi Campbell, who is rumoured to be Usher’s new latest flame.

Dressed for the occasion in full flapper mode, complete with headdress, Carey, fresh from the video shoot for her latest track, ‘U Make Me Wanna’, a duet with rapper Jadakiss, apparently drew much attention on the dancefloor from the likes of Jay-Z and P. Diddy.

Long term friends, Mariah and Usher previously worked together on a re-make of 2 Pac’s ‘Me And My Girlfriend’ for Carey’s Rainbow disc in 1999, a full four years before Beyonce and Jay-Z’s ‘Bonnie and Clyde ’03’.

Mariah tipped for Las Vegas // 7:57 PM EST Updated by Will

Mariah Carey is the next big star being lined up for a Las Vegas residency.

After wowing audiences for more than 20 years the 'Vegas entertainment institution Siegfried & Roy has come to a sad end following Roy Horn infamous mauling by one of his white tigers in 2003. Mariah is favourite to land their old residency at the Mirage Hotel.

Like Celine Dion and Sir Elton John, Mariah could command a multimillion contract should she agree to a year-long show in the desert. However, it's thought she'll see how successful her next album, due early 2005, is before committing.

Mariah and Jadakiss unveil new video // 7:55 PM EST Updated by Will

Her last rap collaboration, with Busta Rhymes, resulting in one of the r’n’b anthems of last summer, I Know What You Want. No doubt Mariah Carey is hoping for a similarly positive reaction to her guest appearance with New Yorker Jadakiss on the smoochy slow jam U Make Me Wanna. Just to remove any doubt, Mariah and Jadakiss this week unveiled a suitably sexy video to accompany the track, which is already making an impact on the US Billboard Rnb chart on airplay alone. Filmed in LA’s Prey Club it features Ms Carey in a suitably eye catching little black dress sure to get pulses everywhere racing. The track, taken from Jadakiss’ no.1 US album should be following his previous smash hits Kiss Of Death and Why? into charts worldwide shortly, and serves as a taster of Mariah’s new studio project, which is apparently set for release early next year. Mariah has been working on the project, which includes collaborations with the likes of Damizza, Twista, Nelly and Kanye West, since completing her critically acclaimed Charmbracelet Tour earlier this year.

What’s more it seems we’ll be seeing rather a lot of Mariah next year. Manager Benny Medina, the man who took Jennifer Lopez from ghetto to stardom, recently talked of his excitement about the forthcoming album, which he declared will "hit all the marks," and also revealed that Mariah is currently looking at movie scripts, and, demonstrating her determination to build on the kudos she gained for her performance in mobster drama Wisegirls, is currently taking acting lessons. With other rumoured projects including her newly launched Automatic Princess brand jewellery and a series of children’s book under the same name, Carey obviously intends 2005 to be another busy year.

Still, with all that hard work ahead, every diva needs a little time to let her head down and Mariah apparently found the perfect opportunity this week at superstar singer Usher's lavish 26th brithday party, where the birthday boy's gifts included a $40,000 Audemars Piguet watch. Guests at the bash, held at New York's Rainbow Room included Jay-Z, P. Diddy, Pharell, L.A.Reid and Patti labelle. But despite the presence of the woman rumoured to be Usher's new girlfriend, supermodel Naomi Campbell, most of the male attention in the room was apparently focused on Mariah, who attended dressed in full flapper style, complete with headress. Reports suggest Mariah, who is a long term friend of RnB heartthrob Usher, was the centre of attention on the dancefloor thanks to the likes of Sean (P. Diddy) Combs, Jay-Z and Jermaine Dupri surrounding Ms Carey.

Sounds like she should have her options open if current beau Mark Sudack doesn't come up to standards.

-- From Popdirt: Our previous poll asked which pop star do you believe is the least hygienic, where 33.6% said Britney Spears thanks to her recent exploits, including walking barefoot into a gas station restroom and appearing in public with much-needed acne medication on her face. Next up was Pink, noted for being photographed urinating behind a car door, picking up 22.5%. Christina Aguilera was third with 14%, while Mariah Carey received the fewest votes at 1.5%.

-- From Star Beacon: Jerry Springer took the podium to speak on behalf of the Democratic Party at Fowlers Mill Golf Course Friday. Springer said education should be first priority for the state and the nation. “With college you don’t need to play ball like Michael Jordan or sing like Mariah Carey to make it big,” Springer said. “I know the American dream can work because of my stupid show.”

From NY Post: Page Six columnist Richard Johnson writes, “we hear… that Mariah Carey, Naomi Campbell and Usher showed up to Erica Reid's birthday party at Kittichai hosted by her hubby, Island/Def Jam honcho L.A. Reid.

From Reuters: Not only does Usher have four No. 1s this year, but they are four consecutive releases. He is the first artist to have four chart-toppers in a row since Mariah Carey had a run of five from September 1995 to September 1997: "Fantasy," "One Sweet Day," "Always Be My Baby," "Honey" and "My All."

From Six Shot: N.O.R.E. will release his fourth solo album, One Fan a Day on December 21st. The album was originally slated to drop in November.

Mariah Surrounded by Usher's Guests // 12:51 PM EST Updated by Liron

Usher had a ton of fun at his 1920s-theme birthday party Sunday night - unlike some record-industry execs.

As a 16-piece band played, the 26-year-old R&B star could be found on the Rainbow Room dance floor, where he, Sean (P. Diddy) Combs, Jay-Z and Jermaine Dupri (looking like successful bootleggers) surrounded their "moll," Mariah Carey, as she did some flapper moves.

Some Josephine Baker-style dancers with pasties on their chests and bananas on their hips were also there to keep the joint jumping. Savion Glover tap-danced. Patti LaBelle sang "Happy Birthday." And Usher, sporting his new $40,000 Audemars Piguet watch, always seemed to have a glass full of Moet Nectar Rosé.

Mariah Starts Music Trend // 12:46 PM EST Updated by Liron

Five or ten years ago it was a rarity for an R&B singer to feature a hip-hop artist on a single--especially when the single was not a remix. Mariah Carey has to be given a lot of credit for merging the R&B and Hip-Hop genres. Mariah set off her 1995 single "Fantasy" by putting ODB on the track. Mariah went on to feature artists such as Jay-Z, P. Diddy, and Mase on singles.

Years later, merging hip-hop and R&B is commonplace and some of the artist out of the Dirty South are calling their new sound Crunk nB. Usher's "Yeah" is considered the first Crunk N'B single and Ciara's "Goodies" is considered the first female Crunk N B single. Nivea and Ciara are both back with new singles that feature hip-hop/rap artists. Nivea's new single "Okay" features Lil Jon and the Youngbloodz and Ciara's new single "1-2 Step" features Missy Elliott.

"I Know What You Want" wins three ASCAP Awards // 11:44 AM EST Updated by Will

Mariah's collaboration with Busta Rhymes and The Flipmode Squad, "I Know What You Want", was awarded as one of the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Songs of the Year, as well as one of the Top Rap Songs at ASCAP's 2004 Rhythm & Soul Music Awards. In addition, the hit single was a winner in ASCAP's 2004 Pop Music Awards.

However, because ASCAP (the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) award ceremonies honor songwriters, and because "I Know What You Want" is one of the very few Mariah songs that she didn't write or co-write, Mariah will not personally receive these awards.

News Tidbits // 1:15 AM EST Updated by Lynn

-- From All Hip Hop: Mariah Carey might not be as hot as when she first came out, but she’s still hotter than when she first came out. Does that make sense to you? Anyway, the word is MC was slated to release her new album this winter. Yeah, she’s a 4th Quarter diva. Anyway, she’s been doing her thing and recording on an island like she normally does. Upon finishing it she turned the finished product to Island Def Jam chief LA Reid. The rumor says Reid heard it and scrapped the project. He said everything gotta go - tracks, producers and songs. On to of it all – it’s been pushed back. Well let’s look at it like this, Reid has a great pop track record. We trust that he’s gonna pull Mariah through this slump.

-- From Bradenton Herald: Ways to beat the New York Yankees? Reunite Mariah Carey with Derek Jeter. The singer and one-time flame of the New York Yankees' shortstop has disappeared from the music scene. Jeter was always her "Hero," and he needs a distraction right now. Mariah's no Yoko, but she just might throw Jeter off his game...

-- From Reuters/Billboard: The combined forces of Usher and Alicia Keys made "My Boo" (LaFace) an inevitable No. 1. This is Usher's seventh No. 1 on this list, moving him further out in front as the artist with the most chart-toppers on this survey. Nelly, Mariah Carey and P. Diddy are tied for second place with five apiece.

-- From Times Online: The successful ones play their egos to their advantage; flinch away from such disasters as Michael Jackson’s bewildering self-hagiography Moonwalker or Mariah Carey’s so-bad-it’s-good-then-bad-again Glitter, and instead rent 8 Mile (Eminem impressively deconstructing his own legend), or The Man who Fell to Earth (David Bowie proving once again that he’s not quite of this planet).

-- From All Hip Hop: Voice inflection. This means that your voice goes from loud, to louder. Never calm, never rational. At times it can fluctuate into a high-pitched scream like “DY-NO-MITE!!” “OHHHHHH SHIIIIIT,” is very popular today because even Black men can hit an octave that rivals Mariah Carey with it.

-- From The NY Times: Where would the world be without Nirvana? When the band's record ''Nevermind'' was released in 1991, it caused a rupture that was more than simply stylistic, more than just a group with loud guitars and louder drums knocking the whimpering Mariah Carey off the top of the charts (though that was not nothing). It was a moral victory.

Mariah featured on Extra! // 9:03 PM EST Updated by Will

Extra! featured a segment on Mariah during tonight's episode of the entertainment news program. They basicly informed viewers about her new song with Jadakiss, "U Make Me Wanna", and showed a short clip of the music video.

In that clip, Mariah was in sitting in the middle of a large group of people, as she was singing. The video was apparently filmed at the Prey Club, as Mariah was wearing the same outfit seen in her September 23 outing to the Beverly Hills venue.

Mariah's manager Benny Medina was also interviewed for the segment. He stated that Mariah is a living legend, that she's been working on her new album, and also that she has been reading scripts and even taking acting lessons. Although he didn't reveal much, Benny did an excellent job at giving Mariah a very positive spin.

Then the reporter from Extra! said that Mariah is getting ready to star in her own sitcom, and that they will surely give us updates when more news about it is available.

Mariah Seen in Chicago // 9:02 PM EST Updated by Lynn

Frank Jeffery sent in an email (with accompanying photos below) recounting his meeting with Mariah at the O’Hare Airport in Chicago last night, October 12th. Here’s what Frank wrote:

Click on thumbnails to enlarge

A friend of mine who must remain anonymous tipped me off that Mariah was arriving with her manager, personal assistant, and bodyguard at Chicago's O’Hare airport Tuesday night. I was the ONLY fan waiting for her as she exited the escalator leaving the arrival gate. I was so well informed; I knew the actual terminal, escalator, and time of arrival.

When she was comfortably paused, I approached her. She was very cool with me as she filled my request for an autograph and picture. This was my second time meeting Mariah (first at Harpo studio's Oprah Show pre-tape rehearsal for the "Heartbreaker" performance with DaBrat and Missy). I asked her if she would remember the instance of us meeting but cut my story short and concluded "of course you don't remember me....", she giggled. I then rambled how big a fan I am and about the 150 Mariah CD's I have from all over the world, etc. She said "the new stuff will be out soon", and I replied, “I know, I check 'Mariah Daily' every day!!" I then told her I've been a fan since I saw her on 'Apollo' fourteen years ago. She then said "well don't say that too loud... we don't want anyone knowin' about no fourteen years ago" then snickered.

There was a limo for Mariah and her manager, etc., and an S.U.V. just for her luggage! I asked if she was in town on business and she said that a close family member had passed away. I later learned from another anonymous source that her Grandmother has passed on and she was in fact here for that reason. My condolences to Mariah and her family.

I wanted to share this experience with Mariah Daily, since I enjoy so much of the website so often.

Thank you, Mariah Daily.

Mariah's Career in Trouble Again? // 6:18 PM EST Updated by Liron

Article by Roger Friedman

Poor Mariah Carey. She makes a little progress, she takes a few steps backwards.

Carey has been busy recording her second album for Island Def Jam, the follow-up to her 2002 CD, "Charmbracelet." But since she started working on it, Carey jettisoned the two people who were closest to her and who were responsible for making "Charmbracelet" a hit: manager/partner Jerry Blair and publicist Cindi Berger. She replaced them with Jennifer Lopez's former manager, Benny Medina, who maybe did not know as much about Mariah as his predecessors.

Now Medina is on his own, and Mariah is being ... Mariah.

According to my sources, the diva recorded most of a new album and planned to release it this fall. But the CD she came up with was apparently not to the liking of Island Def Jam's L.A. Reid, who now is responsible for making sure Carey doesn't fall on her face. Apparently Reid was so displeased with the album, that the new release date has been moved to next winter or spring.

A lot is riding on this new Carey album, not just for Mariah, but for Reid too. This is his big chance to prove that he was not personally responsible for the end of Arista Records, where he piled up a lot of bills and didn't have a lot to show for his work when he left. His one accomplishment was turning Outkast into a household name, but his legacy — two failed Whitney Houston albums for example, on a $20 million advance — is not stellar. (I'm still wondering what happened to the Arista acts we were told would change our lives, Lennon and Adema.)

Carey, who's dating a 28-year-old assistant from her now defunct MonarC Records label, is said to be shuttling between the Isle of Capri, New York and Los Angeles as she records and re-records. I'm told that junior A&R people at Island Def Jam were recently asked if they had any new young, hip "with it" material for the statuesque senior — that is, 35-year-old — chanteuse.

Mariah sings hook on Nore and Big Pun track // 4:15 PM EST Updated by Will

Underground producer Scram Jones was recently interviewed by Blues & Soul magazine. As you probably know by now, Scram worked on a song with Mariah featuring rapper N.O.R.E for her upcoming album.

When asked how the whole project came together, Scram said Mariah came into the studio one day with Damon Dash, and Scram was playing one of his beat CDs. Mariah really liked one of the tracks and asked N.O.R.E. to be on it with her.

Scram says Mariah returned the favor to N.O.R.E. by singing the hook on a track of his that also features Big Pun. That song was produced by DJ Green Lantern, another underground hip-hop beat-maker.

Mariah Daily's Autumn Style Report // 3:37 PM EST Updated by Will

Every quarter, Mariah Daily posts tips on how you can buy Mariah's latest fashions and duplicate her style for the current season. The report for autumn 2004 can be found below. Be sure to check out our Mariah Style section for additional fashion tips and links.


Just as the leaves are changing, it is time to change your wardrobe. Now that the autumn season has arrived, it is time to cover up – just a little bit – to keep the cold winds at bay.

When Mariah was visiting Paris, France last November, during a stop on her Charmbracelet World Tour, she was definitely dressed for the season. Her wool mini-skirt and button-up cardigan sweater are sexy, but also kept her body warm at the same time. In addition, Mariah wore knee-high leather boots to keep those legs warm. Something else that makes this outfit ideal for autumn is the choice of colors. Brown and maroon tones, as Mariah selected, are perfect for this season, as are shades of olive and orange.

Although Mariah’s skirt and sweater have been uniquely altered to fit her to her liking, copying this look and finding similar pieces should be easy. Getting the look for less and looking just as good is only a few clicks away! Here are some suggestions:

For the top, try Eddie Bauer’s wool-blend cable cardigan in cabernet heather, available online at eddiebauer.com. The $59 item is also available in tall and petite sizes and a variety of colors.

For the skirt, shop at Chaiken, where you’ll find a khaki wool-blend mini-skirt marked down from $154 to $69. For the boots, visit Bronx Clothing, where their Naughty 9780 leather boots in Moka-color are going for $109.

If it’s extra chilly outside, you can complete this Mariah look by throwing on your favorite scarf (one that matches the rest of the outfit, of course) and a full-length leather trench coat.

Mariah Mentions // 1:28 AM EST Updated by Lynn

-- From CNN: Britney Spears in "Crossroads" and Mariah Carey in "Glitter" are perfect examples of why most singers need to stick with melodies and avoid melodramas. In fact, these divas were so bad that they became a laughingstock - as this quote from "Saturday Night Live's' "Weekend Update" attests: "U.S. officials continue the search for Osama bin Laden. Reports suggest that bin Laden is most likely somewhere remote and barren, where he will not encounter others. The FBI has begun searching theaters showing the movie 'Glitter.'"

-- From ContactMusic: Original American Idol runner-up Justin Guarini has decided to part ways with Benny Medina because the manager was more focused on taking care of Mariah Carey's needs. Guarini, who has struggled to stay in the spotlight since losing out to Kelly Clarkson in 2002's first season of the talent contest, had been working with Medina, former manager of Jennifer Lopez, but later decided it was better to part ways. He says, "Originally Benny and I had tried a bit of a tentative working relationship, but at the end of day it didn't work out. He had his priorities, and he's been focusing a lot on Mariah."

-- From Kentucky Herald-Reader: Tim McGraw is the latest singer to hit the silver screen with Friday Night Lights. There is precedent for singers turning in some good film performances --there are also movie turns by folks like Mariah Carey and Garth Brooks that, well, struck sour notes.

-- From Barbados Nation News: The song Love Takes Time was appropriate for last Sunday's drawn-out, time-consuming Richard Stoute Teen Talent Show, which took about six hours to end. By the time the loyal patrons had discovered Sabrina Estwick had won the preliminary with Mariah Carey's Love Takes Time and Whitney Houston's I Have Nothing, it was after midnight and another day was dawning.

-- From Silver Chips Online: Today's multiracial teens strike freelance journalist John DiConsiglio, who has interviewed them for a Scholastic Choices article, as comfortable and confident. He credits their acceptance to multiracial celebrities like actor Keanu Reeves, singer Mariah Carey and golf legend Tiger Woods.

-- From WAFF: Chaka Khan, Mariah Carey, and Julio Iglesias are just some of the celebrity patients on Dr. Ramsey Saffouri's wall of fame. You don't need to be on the a-list to get a visit from Dr. Saffouri. He works for a 24 hour emergency medical service called AM-PM Housecalls.

-- From PR Newswire: Country music star Dolly Parton will perform at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on December 7th. The Colosseum is a striking landmark at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip and is home to "A New Day..." featuring Celine Dion and Elton John's "The Red Piano." It has also hosted such stars as Jerry Seinfeld, Gloria Estefan, Mariah Carey, Luciano Pavarotti and Tim McGraw since opening in 2003.

-- From Payson Roundup: Main Street Mercantile features a large collection of framed autographed photos of "just about anyone you can imagine," including Elton John, Mick Jagger, Tom Cruise, Sting, Tina Turner, Halle Berry, Mariah Carey, Billy Joel, Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow and Heather Locklear. They come complete with certificates of authenticity and range in price from $50-$250.

-- In the October 18th issue of InTouch Weekly with Nicole Kidman, Mary-Kate Olsen and Gwen Stefani on the cover, Mariah is featured on page 76 under the heading Fashion Trauma. Referring to the dress she wore at the Prey Club in Los Angeles, InTouch says, “This outfit is so bad it makes Glitter look good. Mariah scary. Flashing some skin can be sexy, but flaunting too much makes Mariah Carey look desperate. Fashion expert Danna Weiss suggests raising the neckline and lowering the hemline.” Click on thumbnail to enlarge.

-- In the most recent episode of "Gilmore Girls" that was aired on Wednesday, Mariah was mentioned in the following conversation between Rory and Lorelai:

Rory: "This is crazy."
Lorelai: "Well, it depends on your definition of crazy, I for one found the Mariah Carey phone messages to her fans just refreshingly imaginative."

-- From Cornell Daily Sun: "Insect Electronica from South-East Asia", an album recorded by Tucker Martine purports to be field recordings of assorted insects from Burma, Laos, and Thailand. However, the "musicians" sound more like crickets than dragonflies; their modulated creaking and ceaseless scratching bounce off the water and themselves, testing the technical specs of Martine's recording devices. Indeed, if there's any one glaring flaw, it's that Martine's equipment seems incapable of faithfully capturing these shrill little exothermic creatures that would make Mariah Carey wilt away.

-- From Daily News Tribune: In the movie Raise Your Voice, a sort of Christian version of “Fame”, Hilary Duff falls into a chaste romance with a rakish British musician named Jay. As in Britney's "Crossroads" and Mariah Carey's "Glitter," the two lovebirds compose a generic ballad together. The results aren't any more inspiring the third time around.

New Mariah album to be released January 17? // 3:45 PM EST Updated by Will

After the German and British branches of Universal Music announced that Mariah's forthcoming album had been pushed back to early next year, other divisions are confirming this news.

HMV Australia is now listing the release date of Mariah's new album as January 17, 2005. Their information comes directly from Universal Music Australia.

A representative for Universal Music Spain said, "There won't be a Mariah album until February 2005". In addition, sources from Thailand have said the new album won't be released until early next year, although the local offices of Universal Music there have said nothing has been confirmed.

Mariah cut from "Death of a Dynasty"? // 3:45 PM EST Updated by Will

It appears that Mariah's cameo appearance in the movie "Death of a Dynasty" has been removed from the final cut of the film, or at least for the version that is being distributed on DVD in the United Kingdom.

Mariah made a short appearance as herself in the original cut of the independent film, which was directed by music moguel and a friend of Mariah's, Damon Dash.

The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in May 2003 and featured a slew of star cameos. It seems that most of them have been cut out, however, for the version of the film that was released on DVD on September 27th in the UK. Currently, that is the only distribution the movie has received anywhere in the world. Hopefully we will be able to see the un-cut version featuring Mariah's cameo once the movie is released elsewhere.

"U Make Me Wanna" updates // 3:45 PM EST Updated by Will

As of today, Jadakiss and Mariah's new single "U Make Me Wanna" has accumulated a little over 10 million audience impressions from the 337 total spins it has received from radio stations across the country (233 spins at urban outlets, 98 spins at rhythmic outlets, and 6 spins at pop outlets).

To debut on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, a radio-only single needs about 15 million audience impressions. At the current rate "U Make Me Wanna" is rising, the song should appear on the Hot 100 within the next two weeks.

As of right now, most stations are simply playing the song directly from Jadakiss's album, but they should be receiving promotional singles soon. The initial pressings of the promos have already turned up on eBay on both CD and vinyl. The album version and radio edit are available on both formats, and an instrumental version is available exclusively on the vinyl single.

Tia Texada Talks about "Glitter" // 1:34 PM EST Updated by Liron

The October issue of "Stuff" Magazine features an interview with Tia Texada who played Roxanne in "Glitter". Here's what she had to say about the movie:

Stuff: How excited were you the day you were told you would be starring alongside Mariah Carey in the film called 'Glitter'?

Tia Texada: I was excited, because I wanted to do musicals, and I love Mariah's voice. I thought, "I am going to get to dance in this movie, and it's going to be great!"

Stuff: At what point did you realize the movie was going to suck balls?

Tia Texada: It was when they brought mustard-yellow men's football pants to me and said, "You have to wear these, and we're going to put a red lighting bolt on the butt". Then they wanted me to wear a plastic dress that was shaped like a Christmas tree. At that point, I was like, There is something really, really wrong here.

Stuff: Maybe someday it'll be a classic. Like 'Howard the Duck'.

Tia Texada: You know what you should do? You should go out and buy it now, 'cause it's about 75 cents at your local drug store. And in 10 years, it's going to be a classic. You wait.

Boxing Legend Wladimir Klitscko Fascinated Mariah // 10:18 AM EST Updated by Liron

Today, German newspaper "BILD" published an article about the most glorious moments of boxing legend Wladimir Klitschko on its webpage. Dennis has translated the part where he mentions Mariah:

Wladimir: "Doing magic tricks is one of my hobbies. Once, I performed in front of Mariah, in her changing room at the World Music Awards in Monte Carlo. She tremendously enjoyed herself. And this is what is so fascinating about magicians. No matter if you make people google, cause marvel and surprise or just make them smile for a moment - you always reach out to them and touch their souls. And you even don't need to speak in order to achieve that goal."

Only The Best For Diva Mariah // 10:10 AM EST Updated by Liron

Every self-respecting diva needs her expensive accessories and soul diva Mariah Carey is of course no exception. And when it comes to accessories, there can be few items more luxurious and expensive than Ms Carey's latest purchase, the new Maybach limo from Mercedes Benz. The car, which boasts a DVD player, two flat screens, a refrigerator and automatic climate control, would have cost the singer approximately $380,000, although optional features including solar panels cost extra. The car is so exclusive that potential purchasers have to wait to be approached by Mercedes and invited to purchase the car.

With a price ticket that bars all but the super-rich, it’s not surprising to hear that Carey's not the only superstar entertainer said to have taken delivery of this exclusive vehicle. Madonna and Arnold Schwazernegger are among other star names said to have purchased Maybachs, while Jennifer Lopez reportedly gave one to new husband, Latino crooner Marc Anthony as a birthday present.

With such luxurious features the car should meet every diva's needs though Carey, who has been known to stop traffic in order to reapply her make-up before a show, is reported to have found the vanity mirrors a little small for her requirements.

Still with such an expensive purchase, even a multi-million dollar diva may need to bring in a little cash. So it's just as well that we can report Mariah is keeping busy. She reportedly picked up her new toy in LA, having travelled there to film the video for her next smash hit. The track, U Make Me Wanna, is a duet with rapper Jadakiss, taken from his US No.1 album Kiss Of Death. No doubt the superstar paring will be hoping the slow jam, which apparently has a suitably sexy video, will emulate last year's summer smash Carey duet, I Know What You Want, with Busta Rhymes.

Clearly a lady who likes to keep busy, Carey, who has almost completed work on her next album, is apparently venturing into the world of acting again. Having redeemed herself after less than credible reviews for film debut Glitter, with a critically acclaimed appearance in mobster drama Wisegirls, Carey is reportedly in talks to launch her own US sitcom. Described by studio bosses as very 'funny' Carey is said to be on the lookout for a British man to costar after saying how much she enjoys the British sense of humour. Let's hope they like hers.

    -- From Orion Online: If it weighs less than 10 pounds, you can carry it in your purse and it barks, you may be toting around the next trend. Stars like Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey and Kelly Osbourne have all opted for small dogs.

    -- In this week's issue of Us Weekly: Mariah, standing tall at 5'9" measures up with Hollywood's hottest women. Click on photo to enlarge.

    -- Al Sharpton will celebrate his 50th birthday tonight with a party at new restaurant Milieu. Sharpton - who has a new reality-TV show on Spike TV, called "I Hate My Job," expects to be joined by Naomi Campbell, Mariah Carey, Donald Trump and Derek Jeter.

    Mariah Mentions
    -- From Vanguard: A solo album from Beyonce has been inevitable since Destiny’s Child hit the scene in 1997 with their monstrous debut hit, “No, No, No.” Beyonce, Kelly, and former members Letoya and Latavia are all fine, but Beyonce’s svelte frame, caramel complexion, and around-the-way-girl demeanor gave her an edge. Plus, she can belt those Mariah Carey-like lines without, ahem, over-singing them like Mariah.

    -- From Times Online: On the title track to Funky Dory, UK Pop Star Rachel Stevens sings “You’re a work of pop art/ Wanna hang you on the wall/ You’re funky dory baby/ Baby that’s all”, hardly a confidence boost to a woman whose Jennifer Aniston-via-Mariah Carey image pouts down from the bedroom walls of many adolescent males who don’t actually buy her records.

    -- From The Age: They said it couldn't (or shouldn't) happen, but Duran Duran are back with a new album and an ambition to be as big as their hair all over again. Astronaut, the first album since 1983's Seven And The Ragged Tiger was recorded in the south of France over the course of more than two years, with at least four different producers (producers whose previous work encompasses artists as diverse as Beyonce, Mariah Carey and Limp Bizkit) Astronaut is still unmistakably a Duran Duran record.

    -- From The Strait Times: Taking a break from fiery sermons, Malaysia's fundamentalist Islamic opposition group has enlisted rock singers to loosen up its image and help it reach out to younger people. The party has previously protested concerts held in Kuala Lumpur by Western artists including Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey and Linkin Park, saying such entertainment could corrupt young people among the country's Malay Muslim majority.
