Birthday Book
Janel of ButterflyWorldMC invites all Mariah fans to take part in the 2005 Mariah birthday book. She writes, "I have done several books for Mariah over the years! This year, once again we are able to make Mariah a book! Send in birthday wishes to Mariah or say hello! You may include letters, poems, greetings, cards, artwork, decorations or anything festive! The deadline will be March 22, 2005!" Janel is also looking for someone to design an original cover for the birthday book. For more information, email her at janelspiegel@aol.com.

Mentions
--From New York Daily News: Barry Diller and Diane von Furstenberg opened their park-like Beverly Hills estate for their pre-Oscar picnic in honor of Vanity Fair's Graydon Carter...Director Brett Ratner pulled Mariah Carey by the hand to a food station - but not without assuring me he's still dating Serena Williams.

--From The NY Post: Of all the Oscar parties, the best might be the lunch Barry Diller and Diane von Furstenberg threw the day before at their splendid estate in Coldwater Canyon. In the minority were show biz types like Warren Beatty, George Hamilton, Anjelica Huston and husband Robert Graham, Robert Downey Jr., Peter Gallagher and Mariah Carey, who was holding hands with Brett Ratner for a few minutes.

--From The Herald UK: Caurnie is the oldest soaperie in the world using the cold process and Scotland's oldest soap-making business, full stop. It sells to upmarket stores such as Heal's and Liberty, and counts celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston and Mariah Carey among its devotees.

--From GSU Signal: In fact, even a few of Spear’s own fans would agree that her music has less substance than the legends who came before her. In a forum on a Britney Spears fans’ website, fans with screen names such as Obsessed, SuperFan, and Fanatic, were asked who the best female singers were today. They answered: Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, and Whitney Houston. All of these women released work in the ‘80s, well before Spears’ presence.

Radio Interviews, Fan Sites, News Tidbits // 1:57 PM EST Updated by Liron

-- Click here to download Mariah's interview with Rick Dees. "It's Like That" is currently #28 on the Rick Dees top 40 chart.

-- Mariah will be interviewed on Wednesday (March 2nd) on the Angie Martinez show on Hot 97, NYC. The show airs from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM EST.

-- Be sure to check out Kelly's site, Mariah Central!

-- The UK section of We love Mariah, WLM-UK has now opened. Everyone can join WLM-UK or WLM.

-- From Chicago Sun-Times: Yes, that was Mariah Carey dining quietly in the Red Room at Japonais. For those who care, the songbird was happy to find her favorite vintage -- Stag's Leaf Cask 23 -- on the Japonais wine list. Carey's new CD, ''The Emancipation of Mimi'' is due to hit stores April 12.

-- From Enquirer: Best mail I ever received: We have this guy in prison who thinks that we have a special relationship with Naomi Campbell, so he keeps sending us these long letters. We actually have a pair of Mariah Carey's underwear. Page Six, a little bit before I came, (called her) the "Lycra-loving songbird." And she sent us her underwear with a note that said, "I had to go far back in my closet to find this." I've got it in my drawer.

-- From Chart Beat Chat: In the United Kingdom, Westlife's chart fortunes couldn't be more opposite than the band's U.S. success. As you said, their first seven singles were all No. 1 hits. That is the U.K. record. No one in the United States has surpassed that total, either. Mariah Carey holds the Stateside record, with her first five singles all going to No. 1 on the Hot 100.

    J.Lo Begs Benny to Take Her Back // 5:27 PM EST Updated by Lynn

    Jennifer Lopez wants manager Benny Medina back, but does Mariah stand in her way? According to Roger Friedman of Fox News, she does. Read on.

    "Jennifer Lopez sure likes the spotlight. She's busy making a few people in her world unhappy even as we speak.

    Recent disappointments and missteps have caused her to once again re-evaluate her management situation.

    Those setbacks include her disastrous duet with husband Marc Anthony on the Grammy Awards show, her failure to snatch a potential hit single away from an up-and-coming singer (more below) and the botching of a documentary that was supposed to accompany her new CD. (I told you that story in a recent column.)

    Lopez apparently decided that that was it for manager Simon Fields, who produced her movie "Shall We Dance?"

    According to the New York Post, Lopez approached former manager Benny Medina - whom she sued last year and eventually settled with - about taking her back.

    Only one problem: Medina - who did not return my calls - now manages Lopez's mortal enemy, Mariah Carey.

    Four years ago, Lopez and Tommy Mottola stole music from Carey and put it on Lopez's album before Carey could release it.

    Carey - who does not consider Lopez a singer, and rightly so - has been furious with Lopez ever since.

    Sources say she only signed with Medina after it was explicitly understood that he could not bring Lopez back as long as Carey was a client.

    All of this is said to be proving a dilemma for Medina, who is about to launch Carey's comeback album, "The Emancipation of Mimi." All the early buzz is good, and signs point to a hit.

    Not so for Lopez, whose "Rebirth" album - due around the same time - may reveal more of the actress/dance/singer's vocal deficiencies than anyone cares to learn about.

    Who will now manage Lopez is up in the air, but one thing seems certain: It will not be Medina, at least not while he's working with Carey."

    "It's Like That (REMIX)" Premieres // 2:07 AM EST Updated by Lynn

    The remix version of "It's Like That" premiered on Chicago's B96.3 during Stylz & Roman's Top 9@9 countdown where it placed at #7 last night. We remember B96 as the very first radio station to have played "It's Like That" in early January. The remix is reportedly produced by Scott Storch, who is behind such hits like Terror Squad's "Lean Back", Mario's "Let Me Love You Remix", 50 Cent's "Candy Shop" and Mariah's very own "U Make Me Wanna". Reports also reveal that the remix features some new raps from Fat Joe but apparently offers no new vocals from Mariah. People who were tuned in to B96.3 last night claimed that Mariah called in to the studio to introduce the song.

    Jam'n 94.5 (Boston, MA) and Hot 97 Funkmaster Flex's Show (New York City, NY) have reportedly played the remix as well. One listener described the sound to closely resemble the beat of "U Make Me Wanna".

    Stay tuned as we gather more information about the remix.

    "It's Like That" drops to No. 20 on Billboard Hot 100 // 7:50 PM EST Updated by Liron

    On its sixth week on the Billboard Hot 100, "It's Like That" drops one place from No. 19 to No. 20.

    The song stays at No. 17 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks for the second week in a row.

    While the song's airplay rose to a new peak at 66.523 million audience impressions (#17 on the Mediabase airplay chart), the digital downloads have decreased by 2% from last week for a total of 7085 downloads.

    As you know, a combination of the airplay and digital downloads forms the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Songs with less airplay than "It's Like That" are able to surpass it on the Hot 100 due to better digital downloads.

    Top 10 Downloaded Songs:
    1. 50 Cent - Candy Shop: 55,351
    2. Gwen Stefani - Rich Girl: 40,067

    The Emancipation Proclamation // 7:43 PM EST Updated by Lynn

    Prince can rest assured that the label that buys his next LP will market it like a summer blockbuster rather than a February turkey. Island/Def Jam seems to be taking that approach with Mariah Carey's upcoming The Emancipation Of Mimi, the second of a relatively conservative three-album deal for the singer. Encouraged by the early performance of its lead single, "It's Like That" (hey, remember when an artist could get a singles deal to test the waters first?), the label is billing Mariah's new album as "The Return of the Voice." While that bold proclamation remains to be seen (rather, heard), it's the kind of committed marketing campaign that, even if it doesn't have a windfall financial pay-off, could keep Mariah loyal to label head L.A. Reid.

    On the other hand, why would a record label want to take a chance on spending the kind of money necessary to market and develop a risky new artist when that artist could simply jump ship once he or she finds success? Well, for starters, nobody wants to walk the plank into the shark-infested waters of the music biz, and it's simply more incentive for the label to do its job and keep the artist coming back. Contractual "options" should give both the artist and the label the choice to walk, regardless of whether it's a superstar artist like Prince or a newcomer like Jesse McCartney. As Mariah knows, a marriage should only last as long as both parties are being satisfied. And get this: Artists could come back to a label even after dalliances with competitors! What an idea! It's an open relationship even a Jehovah's Witness could endorse.

    Rolling Stone Spring Music Preview: "The Emancipation of Mimi" // 3:37 PM EST Updated by Lynn

    The seven-octave singer recruits Snoop Dogg, Kanye West and the Neptunes for a powerhouse party disc.

    Enlisting a superstar roster of collaborators - including Snoop Dogg, Kanye West and Nelly - Mariah Carey makes a powerhouse return with the dance-heavy R&B album The Emancipation Of Mimi.

    "This is the fun side, the real me," Carey says. "It's a reflection of this being a celebratory moment in my life." The first single, the Jermaine Dupri-produced It's Like That, is a percussion-driven club-banger, and the standout track, the Neptunes' Say Somethin', showcases Snoop. "It was a party atmosphere," Carey says. "Pharrell was working with Snoop on his record in one room and with Nelly in another, and then we all ended up collaborating."

    Emancipation also brings the ballads Carey is known for, such as Fly Like A Bird, which includes a message from the pastor of her church. "It's a special song for me," she says, "the most powerful vocally and lyrically."

    The Emancipation Of Mimi - Due out April 12.

    News Tidbits // 5:43 PM EST Updated by Lynn

    --Jason from the "Banding Together" Project 2005 has written us with an announcement for all Mariah fans who may be interested in participating:

    "Amber, a member from the Honey B. Fly Fan Club, came up with a wonderful idea known as "Banding Together Project 2005" where they will design rubber bands you wear around your wrist. The money earned will support Mariah, her new album (The Emancipation of Mimi), and a portion will be donated to Save The Music Foundation This bracelet will symbolize our 'tight knit' Mariah community. If you have any questions or if you want to show support, please contact us at bandingtogether2005@yahoo.com or visit our website at http://devoted.to/mcbracelets. Please hurry! March 1st is the deadline."

    --Shiro Suzuki, one of the developers of Sony's ATRAC3plus has used Mariah as an example to describe how this cutting edge technology in music encoding/compressing works, "When tuning, we use a database of sound sources created especially for evaluation. For example, Mariah Carey is extremely tricky because the instruments and the vocals range over a very wide spectrum. And we can't make an encoder by just targeting a particular band. I've been listening to Mariah for 8 years – tens of thousands of times. Now I don't need to listen to the original sound source: just listening to the decoded sound I can tell whether it's good or not. I think her songs are indelibly impressed on my memory."

    --"It's Like That" features a sample from the song "The Way of Rhyme" by Kriss Kross, a rapping duo in the early 1990s. The two were discovered at an Atlanta mall in 1991 by then-19-year-old producer Jermaine Dupri, who took them under his wing and came up with the gimmick of having the duo wear all of their clothing backwards, lending more significance to their name. To hear a sound clip of the sampled song, click here.

    --As a celebration for reaching over 1500 members, The Butterfly Room will be holding a massive media blowout. For more information on how to avail of their rare media files, visit their site at http://destined.to/thebflyroom (registration required).

    --Damion Young, pka Damizza, CEO of Baby Ree Entertainment has just released volume 3 of his mixtape series. The cd is hosted by platinum artists Mariah Carey, Ice Cube, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Young Buck, DJ Quik, Ashanti, Fat Joe, Nate Dogg, Mack 10, Sly Boogy & TQ. It can be ordered at www.Damizza.com.

    Mariah Calls in to Weekend Top 30 // 2:30 PM EST Updated by Lynn

    Mariah called in to Weekend Top 30 and spoke with DJ Hollywood Hamilton early this morning. Here's the transcript of the interview.

    Hollywood Hamilton: We have Mariah Carey on the phone.
    Mariah Carey: Hey Hollywood!

    HH: Now, how do I really know this is Mariah Carey on the phone.
    MC: Oh, I don't know. What would convince you?

    HH: Just sing me one of any bar, any bar...
    MC: Oh my goodness! It's so early and I didn't get my sleep. (Sings) There's a hero... does that work?

    HH: Yeah ok..(laughs and so does MC) How you doin' girl?
    MC: I'm great, how are you?

    HH: I'm just... ya know I gotta be honest with you. I'm lovin' the single.
    MC: Thank you!

    HH: Is this a whole new Mariah Carey here? Because this is something that i really haven't heard in the past.
    MC: You know what I think it's kind of like... obviously there's the essence of who I am and there's an element of what I've done before. But I feel like this record is different in a lot of ways than a lot of the other club... umm... records that I've done before. And it's really like a feel good record. You listen to the lyrics it's like ya know it's like leavin' you stress behind and whatever else is goin' on. It's just about having fun, it's your night. And that's what we were feeling when we did the record. I did it with Jermaine Dupri.

    HH: Yeah of course.
    MC: Ummm..and we've been workin' together since "Always Be My Baby." That was the first song we wrote together. So I feel like, we did four songs on this new album.

    HH: There's a definite magic between you and JD. You can definitely feel it up you can definitely feel it.
    MC: Yeah... exactly and we're so happy for him and what he's doin' right now so it's great.

    HH: Ya know Snoop was on the show with me from House of Blues about a week ago and he called you scrumptious (MC laughs), what the hell does that mean?
    MC: We love Snoop!

    HH: Is there something we should know. What does that mean scrumptious?
    MC: He's just being polite, that's Snoop. (laughs)

    HH: Oh man, alright real quickly before we get into the single. You came on, this is your second or third time on our show. You know how the show works, people call in all over the world and you don't get on the show unless people are actually really feelin' ya. We don't go to the magazine's R&R, Billboard, or anything like that. So you know you came in last week at 29, and you're already mid-charting on the way up to like top 10.
    MC: Oh yeah, well everybody who called in I love ya! And I can' thank you enough.

    HH: Before we get into the single Emancipation of Mimi. I mean I know it's the most asked question, you've been doin' a lot of radio calls the last few days. Walk that up for me, what does that mean?
    MC: Alright, let me try and say it quickly. Mimi is basically just a nickname that people who are really close to me use and ya know when I was making this record, it was like kinda about the fun side of me and just like ya know even on the ballads just letting my vocals kind of shine thru and letting my spirit shine thru. And it was just like rather than all the baggage of the whole Mariah Carey the celebrity or whatever anybody's opinions were was like yeah, The Emancipation of Mimi. The real me, not Mimi m-e-m-e, but Mimi the nickname people have been using for me for years.

    HH: Oh... alright. You knew when you came up with that title, you'd have to answer that question a billion times.
    MC: Yeah I did. But then if I'd had gone on the same route as like Butterfly and Rainbow and all the rest of 'em. They would've been makin' fun of that, so it's like eat, drink, dance, whateva! (laughs)

    HH: Alright, It's Like That! Girl, go ahead and walk it up with me, go ahead. Talk to the whole world.
    MC: Okay everybody out there listening to Hollywood Hamilton. This is my new record featuring JD and Fatman Scoop and it's called "It's Like That."

    Mariah on Access Hollywood - Part 2 // 9:48 PM EST Updated by Liron

    Last Friday (Feb 11), Access Hollywood aired Part 1 of Billy Bush's interview with Mariah. Tonight, Part 2 was aired.

    Click here to download the second half of the interview that was aired tonight.

    Interview transcript:
    (Billy Bush - Interviewer)

    BB: What about your life? I mean what do you want? I look at you and I say there's a woman who could have children, be a mom, all those things -- do you wanna do that Mariah?

    MC: I do, but you know what? It's a lifetime committment. It's not like, yes I'm sure I would have a nanny because lets be honest, we all do, whatever, but it's not like I would want a nanny to raise my kids, and also it's about being with the right person and then going into that - for me, that's just how it is.

    BB: How close are you to that?

    MC: If that's in god's plan for me, then when it's the right time, that's gonna happen.

    But until Mariah finds Mr. right and has those babies, she's busy making music with her new CD "The Emancipation of Mimi" - Mariah's nickname.

    Billy Bush then takes a tour in Mariah's "3-level-crib-on-wheels"

    BB: Is this something you use in your operation?

    MC: This makes it a little bit easier. If you have to sleep here, but you don't feel like driving an hour, everything in L.A is very far apart, just go to sleep, you know, get up and do the photoshoot the next day!

    Steve Harvery - Host
    Shirley Strawberry - His Co-host.

    Steve Harvey: Okay, we have a very special surprise guest today. Seriously, I vomited twice when I found out who the guest was gonna be and I wasn't there.
    Mariah: (laughs) I wanna be there with you!
    Steve: Who the hell set this up when I was out of town?
    Mariah: It wasn't meeee (laughs).
    Steve: You got money girl and a private jet. We in Vegas. We live. We all up in the magic.
    Mariah: I know, I know don't rub it in Steve!

    Steve: Ladies and gentlemen, she is just--she has one of the best voices period, period in the industry today. Period. One of the best voices. I don't know of anybody who does the octave range she does. But when it comes to just flat out sanging. Not singing, but sanging. And she is the best selling female artist of all-time! That speaks volumes. The best selling female artist of all-time, two Grammy awards, she writes and composes her own music, she's outta Long Island, New York, an incredibly wonderful person, and what a real sweetheart in real life. Ladies and gentlemen please put....
    Shirley Strwawberry: She's beautiful.
    Steve: Beautiful ain't the word. FINE is the word.
    (Mariah laughs)
    Steve: Ladies and gentlemen, Mariah Carey. Yay, yay!
    (They all clap and scream)

    Mariah: I couldn't have asked for a nicer intro, okay.
    Steve: What's up darling?
    Mariah: Thank you so much. I'm great. How ya doing?
    Steve: (sighs) We're not bad.
    Mariah: I know. I'm sure you guys are having a fabulous time though.
    Steve: No, we're not.
    Mariah: You're not? Come on..You seem like the party on wheels type though.
    Steve: (laughs) I can assure you that I ain't that!
    Mariah: No?
    Steve: No.
    Mariah: Come on, you are in Vegas.
    Steve: Oh, I am gambling.
    Mariah: Ah, see that.
    Steve: And I ran into Russell Simmons. He has extra gambling chips, but he's like me and gambles very small.
    Mariah: Oh he's gambling small?
    Steve: Yeah, very, very small. He will not sit at the $100 blackjack.
    Mariah: Get out, that's good though. I ain't mad at him.
    Steve: Oh we laughed about that last night.

    Steve: Mariah how are you doing?
    Mariah: Oh, I am doing excellent. I'm just here in LA. I just finished um.. two videos. One for the first single, It's Like That, that is out right now.
    Steve: With JD.
    Mariah: Yes, with JD. And the second single I also did with JD, which is called We Belong Together. And Brett Ratner who obviously directed Rush Hour, Rush Hour Two...
    Steve: Oh, I know him.
    Mariah: Yeah. He's funny right? He did the video...he also did the video for me of Heartbreaker. So we had fun together and we just finished the two videos, and then it was Grammy time and I was like, "I can't go to any parties cause it's time for me to hit the bed." It was like four days in a row getting up at 5 a.m, and I was just tired.
    Steve: So you didn't make it to any of the Grammy parties?
    Mariah: No child, I had to get me some sleeeeep.
    Steve: I missed them all too. I couldn't wait to get to Vegas.
    Mariah: I don't blame you.
    Steve: Cause I ain't gonna go to an awards show where I'm just gonna sit. It's a Grammy, I ain't gonna get one.
    Mariah: So why would ya go!?!
    Steve: Exactly.
    Mariah: So yes to Vegas. I ain't mad.
    Steve: Yes, yes to vegas (laughs)

    Steve: Hey, the new album is called the Emancipation of Mimi.
    Mariah: Yes. Yes, sir.
    Steve: Is that what they call you, Mimi?
    Mariah: Yessss. That was one of my nicknames, but no more. Some of the people that are really close to me are like, "Now you ruined that name for us too. We can't call you anything." I'm like, "Come on, we are creative and we'll make up something new. It'll be alright."
    (They all laugh)
    Mariah: But it was cool. The record just has like a fun vibe to it. I worked on it for like a year in a half. Me and LA Reid really focused, and I just worked with some of the best producers out there...the Neptunes, JD, Kanye West...
    Steve: How do you like working with JD? That's a cool cat to me.
    Mariah: IIII love JD. I'm so happy for him with everything in his life. Like we....
    Steve: Yeah like Janet
    Mariah: mmmhmmm. No really, he's sincerely happy (laughs)
    Steve: Yes he is. Who the hell wouldn't be?!
    Mariah: I know, but she should be happy too. He's a great person. Ever since I've known JD when we first wrote Always Be My Baby. That was like one of my first big records, and um...he's the same guy he's always been. I can see why someone would really want to be with him cause he's a really good person. He's real. He's not Hollywood fake at all. I love the place he is in musically right now...like all the success he's having in what he's tapped into lately......And we just got together cause LA Reid was like, "Why haven't you worked with JD on this record. You got 15 songs and we love them all, but you and JD have magic together". So I was like, "You know what? We need to get down and do some records," and it ended up being what's probably going to be my first three singles.

    Steve: (laughs) the first three. Now the album comes out everybody on April the 12th. She just shot the video here in LA. You shot the one for It's Like That?
    Mariah: I shot the one for It's Like THat and the second single called We Belong Together.
    Steve: You shot two videos in a week?
    Mariah: The thing about Brett Ratner is that he is a storyteller, so he basically made a part 1 and a part 2 video. One's a ballad--not a ballad, ballad but a midtempo ballad---and one's It's Like That. It's kinda cool like how he made the stories flow together, so I'm really excited about that.

    Shirley Strawberry: We are excited too as your fans cause you've been away for awhile and it's good to have you back.
    Steve: Hey listen, hang on Mariah. We are going to take a break and come right back.
    Mariah: Okay.
    Steve: No songs, we are coming right back to Mariah Carey. No, no lets play a song. Wanna play the single?
    Mariah: (laughs) Wanna play the single? Okay.
    Steve: We gotta promote it.
    Mariah: Exactly. This is my new single with JD feat. Fatman Scoop, and it's called It's Like That.

    Mariah Flashes Her Hits // 3:14 PM EST Updated by Lynn

    Mariah Carey’s new album the Emancipation of Mimi is out on March 21 but I’ve had a sneak preview. Happily, after a couple of difficult years for the songbird, I can confirm she’s definitely back on track. Her voice has lost none of its power and the album is a sophisticated mix of power ballads and fresh hip-hop bangers. Here’s a brief overview:

    IT’S LIKE THAT: The first single has blown up on radio in the States after being leaked on the net. This flute-driven club banger has Mariah in reflective mood. Fatman Scoop turns up to bellow some rhymes. Mariah is back on fiah.

    WE BELONG TOGETHER: Slated as the second single, this sees Carey working with super producer Jermaine Dupri for the first time in years. She takes stock of pasty mistakes on this gigantic ballad. ‘I was stupid/I was foolish/ I thought I knew everything’ she admits.

    MINE AGAIN: Evoking Seventies’ Stevie Wonder it finds Mariah focusing on her troubles with lines like ‘It’s irrelevant to dwell on the past/I’m accountable for what went bad.’

    SAY SOMETHING: Pharrell Williams provides the beats, Snoop Dogg drops the rhymes, and Mariah trills beautifully on top. Another club banger.

    GET YOUR NUMBER: ‘Damn the club’s about to close/Can I get you number baby’ raps Nelly on this slice of premium RnB.

    FLY LIKE A BIRD: It shows off Mariah’s vocal range but the funk-by-numbers soon gets boring. A gospel choir lifts proceedings, but not by much.

    TO THE FLOOR: Nelly crops up again on what is likely to be the sound of summer ‘05.

    Mariah finds a new use for her wedding dress // 7:40 PM EST Updated by Liron

    Mariah Carey has shot not one, but two new videos so far for her upcoming album, The Emancipation of Mimi. Both "It's Like That" and "We Belong Together" were shot in Los Angeles by director Brett Ratner ("Rush Hour," "Red Dragon"), who last worked with Carey in 1999 on her "Heartbreaker" clip. "It's Like That" has a Vegas casino story line, while in "We Belong Together" Carey races to the altar in her very own wedding dress, a Vera Wang number she wore back in 1993 when she married Tommy Mottola. The videos feature cameos by Jermaine Dupri (who produced both tracks), Eric Roberts and Jay-Z, among others.

    Mariah Visits L.A. Radio Stations // 2:13 PM EST Updated by Liron

    Earlier today, Mariah visited two radio stations in Los Angeles. Here's a quick summary of both interviews:

    Power 106
    The interview was quite long (30 to 45 minutes). Mariah said the tour will possibly start early summer. She said "Mine Again" is very 70's soul inspired and is a favorite of hers as well as "Shake It Off." She has just seen and selected the cover for the CD. When asked about the Grammys, Mariah said she was sleeping during all the Grammy festivities because she was tired from shooting the videos. In addition to "It's Like That," the DJs played "Fantasy," Heartbreaker," "Always Be My Baby," "Honey," and "Someday." Click on the thumbnail to your right to see a larger version of the photo that was taken during Mariah's visit to DJ Big Boy's studio. The station took calls from listeners, one of them was a Mariah fan named Stephanie.

    100.3 The Beat
    Mariah talked about Brett Ratner having them on a "tight schedule" (i.e. late nights and early mornings) while shooting the video. She said she's going to Chicago for the taping of the Oprah show. Steve Harvey complimented her on being down to earth and the two of them talked about how meeting other celebrities can be a disappointment. She mentioned that she is still insecure. She also mentioned her faith and how much it has helped her through hard times. Steve Harvey was really impressed and responded well to how grounded and intelligent Mariah is. Regarding the Grammys, Steve said he wasn't going to win anything so why would go. Mariah replied and said: "Exactly, why bother?"

    "The Emancipation of Mimi" - European Press Release // 6:02 AM EST Updated by Liron

    New Mariah Carey album, The Emancipation Of Mimi, set for April 11th release.

    "It's Like That" - #1 Most-added song at US pop and urban radio and breaks Top 20 crossover hit single collaborations with Jermaine Dupri.

    Album guests include Snoop Dogg, Nelly, Twista and top producers Jermaine Dupri, the Neptunes and Kanye West.


    (Feb 13, 2005 - New York, NY) Island Def Jam recording artist Mariah Carey's eagerly anticipated new album, The Emancipation Of Mimi, is shaping up to be one of the early success stories of the new year, as its first single pick, "It's Like That," written by Mariah and co-produced by über-producer Jermaine Dupri, continues its ascent at radio.

    The new single "It's Like That," is now #20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, #12 on the Rhythm chart and #19 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart with over 52 million in audience this week. The song was #1 most-added at pop and urban radio in its first week, with over 200 stations combined, including major U.S. markets New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Washington DC, St. Louis, Miami, Detroit and Denver.

    The music video for "It's Like That" has been shot by Hollywood A-list director Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, Red Dragon). Ratner last worked with Mariah in 1999 on the #1 Pop/ #1 R&B "Heartbreaker" clip.

    The Emancipation Of Mimi, Mariah Carey's 10th studio album, is set to arrive in stores on April 11th (and on April 12th in the U.S.). It is the long-awaited follow-up to 2002's RIAA platinum Charmbracelet, Mariah's IDJ debut, which hit #2 R&B and #3 Pop .

    The new album finds Mariah's broad range of musical talents on full display, as every one of its 14 songs bears her signature as writer and co-producer. Carey continues to work with today's top R&B and hip-hop producers, such as the Neptunes, who lend their signature production style to two tracks: "To The Floor" (featuring Nelly) and "Say Somethin'" (featuring Snoop Dogg). The album's other featured guest is Twista, who shows up on "One and Only."

    The first single, "It's Like That," is one of four songs co-produced by Mariah and Jermaine Dupri, along with "Get Your Number," "Shake It Off," and "We Belong Together." Fellow Def Jam artist Kanye West collaborates with Mariah on "Stay the Night." On other tracks she works with Scram Jones ("Your Girl"), Mahogany ("When I Feel It") and James Poyser ("Mine Again"). Three tracks are co-written and co-produced by Mariah and James "Big Jim" Wright (of Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis' Flyte Tyme Productions), including "I Wish You Knew," "Circles," and "Fly Like a Bird."

    Mariah Carey is an award-winning megastar who holds the title of #1 Female Artist of the '90s - the only artist to have topped the charts in each year of that decade. With cumulative total sales of her albums, singles and long-form videos in excess of 75-times platinum in the U.S. and over 150 million in sales worldwide, she is simply the top-selling female artist in history. With a record 15 #1 singles, two Grammy Awards, eight American Music Awards, Billboard magazine's Artist of the Decade Award, and the World Music Award as World's Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium - Mariah Carey's ongoing career remains an unparalleled success story in the history of contemporary popular music.

    Mariah Films Music Video in 1993 Wedding Gown // 8:41 PM EST Updated by Liron

    Mariah Carey is racing to the altar and wearing her very own wedding dress.

    Billy Bush, Access Hollywood: The dress that you wear in there, is a dress that you've worn before, correct? Give me the honest story.

    Mariah Carey: Well, it's not even that deep of a thing really, I mean I guess probably subconsciously it is, but how was I going to find another Vera Wang exclusive dress that fit me perfectly with a 27 foot train, in two days?

    Yes, the dress appears in one of two music videos Mariah Carey's shooting. But it was back in June of 1993 when Mariah first wore this Vera Wang gown with a dramatic 27-foot train during her wedding to now ex-husband music executive Tommy Mottola.

    MC: Not to say anything negative about anything from the past but it's got some... it's a weighty thing, but umm, I don't know, I didn't really think about it on that deep of a level but it is pretty intense that I put it back on.

    I'll say! And once the marriage ends, you usually don't see the bride putting on the gown again, but folks, this is Mariah Carey with her new, much anticipated album "The Emancipation of Mimi" out in April, she's letting her guard down.

    BB: So there's no letting out demons and setting out free, you just needed a dress.

    MC: I needed a dress, but I'm sure a few demons got set free in the process.

    BB: Come on, in the process, it's gotta feel good, right?

    MC: I don't wanna give away too much about it but I'll just say it was a very emancipating moment.

    BB: What about your life? I mean what do you want? I look at you and I say there's a woman who could have children, be a mom, all those things -- do you wanna do that?

    The answer to that question, along with the rest of the interview will be aired next Tuesday on Access Hollywood.

    Download the interview:
    Part 1 - Mariah introducing the show ("Lights, Camera, Access!")

    Part 2 - Billy Bush interviews Mariah.

    In addition, here are the two photos from Mariah's video shoot in high-quality without watermarks. Click on the thumbnails below to enlarge.

    Mariah: "My voice had never left" // 8:34 PM EST Updated by Liron

    Mariah was featured on tonight's edition of "Extra." Here is a recap of the short segment:

    Extra: Word on the street is the voice is back.

    Mariah Carey: You know what's so funny, I don't feel like my voice had ever left.

    She's been featured recently by other artists, but after a short hiatus, Mariah Carey is back with her own brand new music.

    Extra: I read somewhere that you said that for the first time in your life, you don't feel ashamed of who you are.

    MC: I've always felt like I have to make excuses for a lot of things, just because certain things...

    Extra: Like what?

    MC: I don't know, just being who I was, just you know people always being like, are you black, are you white, are you this are you that, are you r&b, are you pop, are you.. whatever.. it's always been like a, you know, some type of like let me explain myself and make apologies for who I am, and that's not what it's about right now so that's a great feeling.

    That great feeling is reflected on her soon to be released album featuring the breakout single "It's Like That," already Mariah's highest rated song in five years.

    MC: I called it "The Emancipation of Mimi" because Mimi is just a nickname my friends called me...

    Extra: From back in the day

    MC: Yeah from back in the day...

    Extra: What are you emancipating yourself from?

    MC: I think the main thing is just having any boundaries or any limitations on what I should do because I'm free to make the choices that I want to make.

    Speaking of choices: What's she doing in a wedding dress with Eric Roberts? Well, Extra has your first snapshots of Mariah's hot new video.

    Extra: I see you in a wedding dress, the fans are gonna be wondering are you sending some messages out there?

    MC: No they have to watch!

    Behind The Scenes Photos from Mariah's New Videos // 11:42 AM EST Updated by Lynn

    Superstar songbird Mariah Carey and A-list director Brett Ratner teamed up for her first two videos from her wildly anticipated new album, "The Emancipation of Mimi" (out April 12). The videos feature cameos by Hollywood heartthrob Wentworth Miller, uber-producer Jermaine Dupri, actor Eric Roberts and rap star/Def Jam President, Jay Z, among others. The first video for the hit single, "It's Like That," will hit the airwaves end of February.

    Richard Branson, the chariman of Virgin Atlantic has shown MTV the island he owned and Mariah was vacationing in one of his houses, sitting on a bed and drinking a wine called "Mariah".

    Later on, Lil' Jon has shown the studio at his own house and commented that Mariah had been there the night before and brought over a bottle of the "Mariah wine".

    -- Mariah was interviewed on the radio station 93.7 WBLK in NY and talked to the DJ Big Tigger. Mariah said she plans on cutting the album tracks so it would eventually include 12 songs and when she was asked about her love life, she had rathered not speak about it and said "Nooo personal questions!".

    -- According to Universal Japan, the release date of "The Emancipation of Mimi" in Japan has now been postponed to mid-April or the end of April and will no longer be released on April 6th, 2005. In addition, there is a debate whether or not to include "Misty Moon" on the album. It seems that Universal Music Japan is interested to have the song as a bonus track whereas Mariah's team is unwilling to put the song in the album because they claim the song is too short and that she has only recorded it for the commercial.

    -- Ramon continues to organize his special Mariah-fan event. All information about the event can be found on his site. He is holding auditions for it on Feb. 11 (Washington D.C) and Feb 19 (New York City).

    -- David has opened a new forum for Mariah multimedia sharing. Visit it by clicking here.

    -- Jason is selling his cardboard instore stand-up displays of Mariah. Contact him via E-mail if you're interested to buy them.

    --Mariah's "Vision of Love" came in second behind Madonna's "Crazy For You" in Entertainment Weekly's poll for "Best Love Song."

    --HBO will be premiering Glitter in India, Pakistan and Nepal on February 21, 2005 at 3:30pm and 4:00pm in Bangladesh.

    --Mariah is mentioned thrice in the February issue of "Music Life", Greece's biggest music magazine. 1) In the News Flash section: "Mariah Carey's new album release date has been pushed back to April 11..."; 2) In the "20 Hot Tracks to Download This Month": "It's Like That" at #8, the caption reads, "Hot comeback single in a minimal production by Jermaine Dupri. Mariah's back!" 3) In the Top 20 chart, Mariah is #5: "It's Like That": Mariah's new single enters the top 50 chart in US after only two weeks of airplay. Is the Queen back?"

    --MariahOZ is having a "Request Competition" for "It's Like That". For contest details, visit their site at mariahoz.tk.

    Mariah Mentions
    --From Palm Beach Post: "If Kelly Clarkson sang that badly in front of Simon & Co., she might still be waitressing in Texas instead of busting her tail in Hollywood to become the next Mariah Carey."

    --From Houston Chronicle: "The 113-second total for an anthem and a quarter was 10 seconds less than Beyoncé took to sing the entire song last year at Reliant Stadium, three seconds less than it took Mariah Carey to vamp and trill her way through the anthem in Super Bowl XXXVI..."

    --From SI Advance: During the three-hour affair, the girls participated in numerous activities pertaining to notable Scouts -- like Grace Kelly, Chelsea Clinton, Shirley Temple and Mariah Carey -- including a scavenger hunt and a reenactment of a scene from the former television show, "I Love Lucy."

    --From The Age Australia: "The likes of Mariah Carey look on a song as a chance to give their voices an aerobic workout, but k.d. lang's voice hits a note and stays there, cutting through it like a fin through water."

    Mariah's closemouthed // 12:03 PM EST Updated by Will

    Mariah Carey is guarding her heart. After very public romances with Derek Jeter and Luis Miguel, the songbird won't confirm or deny that she's dating a 28-year-old guy who works for her.

    "Honestly! At this stage in my life, I'm not even getting into that stuff," Carey, 34, tells Blender, even though the dude was sitting nearby during the interview.

    Paradoxically, she adds, "I'm not getting tied down in any relationship. I don't have casual flings, either."

    Her ex-husband, former Sony Music chief Tommy Mottola, will be glad to hear she's refraining from taking any more shots at him.

    "I'm not saying anything negative about anybody from the past," says the free-at-last singer, who calls her new CD, out next month, "The Emancipation of Mimi." "I'm not dealing with any oppressive structure."

    But she hasn't forgotten her headline-making breakdown of 2001.

    "It's still an issue with me," says the "Glitter"-puss, who dependably poses in the flimsiest lingerie. "But I'm much better at sleeping, because I have to be."

    Taking care of her pipes, she sometimes won't even return friends' calls. Instead, she texts them: "I'm having a vocal rest."

    "It's Like That" climbs to No. 24 on Billboard Hot 100 // 8:47 PM EST Updated by Liron

    In its third week on the Billboard Hot 100, "It's Like That" moves up twelve places to No. 24 after its position of No. 36 last week.

    As previously reported, a new Billboard rule has been implemented on this week's chart, allowing digital song sales (downloads) to count for the song's positions.

    A digital download is the equivalent to a single sale's impact on the chart where 1,000 copies sold equals 1 million audience impressions.

    "It's Like That" has debuted at a subpar No. 39 on Billboard's Digital Sales chart. A higher position on this chart would secure a much higher position on the Billboard Hot 100.

    Therefore, it is important that you download the song through a legal service, such as iTunes, Musicmatch, MSN Music, or Napster.

    Another easy way to purchase the track is through eBay's Passalong system. Click here to purchase the track on eBay (7,000 copies are available, use the "Buy it now" option).

    Stay tuned for more Billboard updates.

    Newsday Song of the Week: Mariah Carey's "It's Like That" // 10:03 PM EST Updated by Will

    Mariah Carey's comeback single "It's Like That" (Island Def Jam) is stunning for its sheer lack of Mariah-ness. No high-end screams. No overwrought high notes. Just laid-back cool. Producer Jermaine Dupri provides her with a hot beat and an irresistible, spacey-synth groove, and she plays it straight, oohing and cooing like any number of R&B-hook girls. Is it Janet? Ashanti? Ciara? At this point, it doesn't matter. Mariah is just looking to fit in again, trying to convince folks that she's not a screw-loose diva with a roomful of shoes, but another around-the-way Long Island girl trying to take care of business, y'all. So far, so good.

    Station issues apology after negative Mariah remarks surface // 8:35 PM EST Updated by Will

    On Thursday, January 27th, we posted audio clips of Power 92 disc jockey Brandon responding to people as they asked to hear Mariah’s new single “It’s Like That” played on air.

    Instead of spinning the song as requested, Brandon dished out rude comments that were insulting to both Mariah as well as the people requesting her single. “No hoes are played on this station,” he told one listener. “Mariah is a slut, that’s why she doesn’t have any fame anymore. She opens her legs for everybody, even the farm animals.”

    The listening audience was appalled and flooded the station with their disdained opinions. Some fans even filed complaints with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which regulates communications for a number of media outlets including radio stations.

    As a result, Brandon issued an apology on air. “It was inappropriate of me to say the things I did,” he said. Since then, he has not been on-air regularly and reports suggest that he has either been demoted or temporarily suspended from the station.

    The station, located in Peoria, Illinois, is also now kindly accepting requests for Mariah’s “It’s Like That”. If you live in the area, please call the station at (866) 686-9292 or (309) 686-9292 to request the single. All votes will be tallied and counted towards the Power 9@9 countdown, which airs at 9:00pm central time.

    Mariah introduces 'Mimi' // 7:08 PM EST Updated by Will

    Mariah Carey has spoken at length about her new album.

    "The Emancipation of Mimi" is her first studio album since 2002's poorly-received "Charmbracelet".

    She explained the title to RollingStone.com: "Mimi is a nickname that my friends and loved ones call me, so I wanted to... make it representative of where I'm at as an artist,"

    "This is the fun side, the real me, and not the image and the baggage that comes with the whole "Mariah Carey" thing."

    Carey has worked with Jermaine Dupri, the Neptunes and Snoop Dogg on the album.

    She added: "[Pharell Williams] was working with Snoop on his record in one room, and with Nelly in another, and then we all ended up collaborating together,"

    "It was a fun moment for us, to finally get in the studio and feel each others' vibe."

    "The Emancipation of Mimi" is set for release on April 11, preceded by the single "It's Like That".

    A tour is planned for the summer.
