February 2001 Daily Mariah News!!

February 28, 2001...27 days till Mariah's 31st Birthday.
MClogo New Glitter Pictures
Eric from Mariah Carey Archives e-mailed and told me about two new EXCLUSIVE pictures of Mariah from the Glitter movie that he had gotten! They are truly lovely pictures and you can check them out in Glitter Gallery 2! Also, a big thanks to Peter for sending me the pictures!

Revamping Website
I changed the links on the side a bit. First I organize them and then I spread them apart so they would be a little easier to read and to find. I have some maintence I have to do on this website and I am fully aware of it! Just bare with me and I will do a little bit a night, until it's all finished!

How Romantic...
Nothing in "Hannibal" made Mariah Carey scream. But something else sure startled her during the movie. The singer was with her boyfriend, Luis Miguel, at a recent showing of the hit thriller in Los Angeles when she began eating a bag of popcorn. Unbeknownst to her, Miguel had planted a belated Valentine's Day gift in the bottom of the bag and had to sit there silently until Carey finished enough popcorn to feel it.

I know what you're thinking. Didn't Mickey Rourke's character spring a popcorn surprise on an unsuspecting female in the Barry Levinson movie "Diner"? Yes, he did - but put that thought out of your mind. Miguel's surprise to Carey was a necklace containing a string of diamonds that added up to 38 carats.

Now that's something to scream about. But I'm told Carey was speechless - and thrilled - at being on the receiving end of her boyfriend's romantic gesture.

InfoMC and Mariah Article Central this Friday
InfoMC Newsletter will NOT be sent out this Friday because I will be in Washington all day sadly! Plus I will probably update Mariah Artist Central on Saturday, so everyone has an extra day to do the drawing. I will still be doing an update for Friday though, late Thursday night, so don't worry :)

Mariah donates a pair of jeans

On March 14 Heat and Crusaid the national fundraiser for HIV and AIDS are hosting an auction of celebrites' personal belongings at The Park Lane Hotel in London. For details of how to bid for items visit www.qxl.com/heat from March 12. Mariah Carey's Jeans

Mariah Carey has donated the pair of jeans that started the trend of last summer. Cutting off the waistband as low as you dare-a la Mariah in her Heartbreaker video-was the look everyone copied and now you can wear the real thing.

This information was taken from Heat Magazine and thanks to Laura for telling me about it. I was also told that on the left hand pocket it reads, "Love Always Mariah" and that Mariah drew four hearts in the corner!!

IMPORTANT Birthday Card Information
Well I sure hope I don't get in trouble for announcing this but I think it is pretty important to let you all know this, for the people who sent me birthday cards for Mariah. I just got a very nice e-mail from someone in Mariah's Management team saying that everything sounds great and that I can ship the package to this person! I was told that the package will then be sent directly to Mariah, right away! So this is good news that all of your birthday cards, well wishes, presents will get to Mariah! That's all I am really going to say about that!!

If you havn't sent a birthday card to Mariah yet, there is still 16 days. If you like outside the USA, you really only have about 8-9 days to get the card and ship it to me because it takes a week for me to receive packages over seas! Feel free to send me any drawings, artworks, presents, etc for Mariah! I bought a BIG box to send all the presents to her and I will gladly add anything you would like to give to Mariah for her birthday!! This is a huge present from all of us!!! I am hoping this project will be a success and thanks to everyone who has partcipated in it so far. I have already gotten over 100 cards/wishes for Mariah!! Remember, if you can't get a card to me in time, feel free to e-mail your birthday wish for Mariah and I will include it in the package!!!

NASCAR WCUP: Steve Park Remember Giving Rides to Skinny Girl Mariah Carey
This is an older article from 1998 but it's kind of cool. Thanks to Maria for this following article from Auto Channel!

#1 Pennzoil Monte Carlo driver Steve Park is a 1985 graduate of Northport High School on Long Island, N.Y. and, like most people, he has many stories about hanging out after school, riding around in his '71 Chevrolet Cheyenne truck driving friends to burger and pizza joints. But almost 15 years later, Park's high school stories take on a new twist considering the success of one of his running mates Mariah Carey - the biggest selling female singer in the 1990s.

Neither Park or Carey probably knew that racing or singing, seemingly trivial pursuits to their friends, would someday turn into lucrative careers. Park is now a rising star in NASCAR Winston Cup racing with Dale Earnhardt Inc. while Carey's recently released album Butterfly promises to add to the 80 million albums she has sold since 1990. Those high school acquaintances now share in fame, fortune, Internet sites, souvenirs and fan clubs. A long way from the days of sharing rides home on Long Island.

Here is the story in Park's words:
"I went to Northport High School on Long Island but I dated a girl at Harborfields High School in Greenlawn about a ten-minute drive away. This had to be about 1984. I had a drivers license and a truck so about three days a week I'd drive over to Harborfields after school to pickup my girlfriend and give her and her friends a ride home. Sometimes we'd go driving around or go get something to eat. One of her friends was this skinny girl named Mariah. My girlfriend and Mariah lived about two or three blocks from each other in Centerport. What I remember most about Mariah is that her mom was real strict and there would be times we would try to get Mariah to go out with us but she couldn't because she had to take singing lessons. Heck, I remember feeling sorry for her. But, she seemed like a really nice girl, kind of quiet, but really nice.

"I could kind of relate to her because I was in the same position. I missed a lot of time hanging out with my friends because of racing. It was hard for people to understand why I did what I did just as I remember thinking why in the world would that girl spend so much time on something as silly as singing lessons. After my girlfriend and I went our separate ways, we still remained really good friends. I remember one day a few years later when I had moved to Connecticut and my former girlfriend called to say, "you won't believe this but there is a radio station up here playing a song by Mariah." That was really cool. I had lost track of Mariah after I moved off the Island, but I remember that was the first person that I had ever known that was singing on the radio. I guess everyone knows the rest of Mariah's story.

"It seems like those silly singing lessons that I laughed at in high school really paid off. But, like I said, I can relate. I think all the time I spent working on cars and at the race track paid off for me. Her mom got her involved in singing and my Dad got me involved in racing. I'm sure my bank account isn't quite like Mariah's is right now, but whose is? Both of us have managed to get where we really wanted to go and I doubt she ever thought I would amount to much and I sure never expected her to be about the best singer in the world. She'd probably laugh if you told her that the guy that gave her rides in high school turned out to be a NASCAR driver. I haven't spoken to her and I don't even know if she remembers me. But, I remember her. It's funny how things work out. I guess it really is a small world."

    MClogo DaBrat's Transcripts!
    Okay it seems that everyone is writting me and telling me it's the 2/2/01 message that mentioned Lover Boy! Well, I am hearing the 2/7/01 message and in it DaBrat says:

    "...going to the studio with Mariah and Lil'Kim, we've been trying to get this song done, we're finally going to get it done. We've been working on it for a few days..."
    She says more, but that is the MC related parts. Here is the transcript for the 2/2/01 message mentioned the song Lover Boy. Many thanks to Moneira and kmaoc@hotmail.com for this transcript since I can't hear this message for some reason!
    "Yo, party people in da house... What's the deal? This Da Brat-tat-tat.  RIght now I'm in chicago, it's like 2:25, y'know what I'm sayin'..."

    "I just got finished doing a joint with Mariah. Um... 'Lover Boy', that's the name of the joint... about to do a remix with me and Lil' Kim."

    "...we got it rollin', we got it going on, definitely. Plus, I'm on the remix with Lil' Kim, the one coming out [???] goin' to be a Mariah new joint..."

    "...you know Mariah [???] how to blaze and sizzlin' tracks, you heard me?"

    Updates on the Site
    I updated 2 pages yesterday. First off, You Know You're A Mariah Fan has been udpateded. Many thanks to Matt, Jeffy, Suzy, mschat99@webtv.net, and Dana Notes2001 for the suggestions! Plus, I updated the Glitter page! I moved some of the older news to a new page so the overall page would load faster! Check them out, if you like!

    There is a little shortage on Mariah news lately, so be patient and when I get new exciting information, I'll get it up!!

    February 25, 2001...30 days till Mariah's 31st Birthday.
    MClogo Gliters Song Confirmed
    Marc from Crybabyland.com just filled me in on some exciting news. He told me that DaBrat also leaves voice messages at her official website dabrat.com and she said that she just finished a new track for the "Glitter Soundtrack" with Mariah called "Lover Boy!"

    I just checked out the site myself and I saw the Feb. 7th voice message from DaBrat. DaBrat said in that one that she is hitting the studio with LilKim and Mariah to do a song that took a while for them to get together on. So I am guessing that Matt heard a newer voice message then I did becaues in the Feb. 7th message, DaBrat said nothing about the name of the new song, at least I didn't hear it! Thank you also to Joseph for telling me about this information! This is pretty exciting news, in fact!!!

    Latina Scan
    Gregory sent me the scan of the Feb 2001 Latina Magazine and you can check that out in Gallery 48

    Since there isn't much news today, I am working on some of the other pages of this website like "You Know You're A Mariah Fan When...," Glitters Page, etc!

    Plus, I just created a new account for e-mailing me. You can contact me at wildcathg@aol.com and also MariahDaily@aol.com! Either way is fine with me, in fact!

    February 24, 2001...31 days till Mariah's 31st Birthday.

    Important--Mariah's Birthday Cards
    Okay I am receiving a lot of your birthday cards for Mariah now and we are getting really close to when the package will be sent to Mariah! My only request is that you send the cards in an envelope. Majority of you are slipping your birthday cards inside an envelope and then putting my address on it. So when I open the envelope, it's just the birthday card without an envelope for Mariah!

    So make sure you get a card with an envelope, decorate the envelope for Mariah, however you want. THEN, put the card/envelope for Mariah in ANOTHER envelope so you can ship it to me!! So you need one card and two envelopes!!

    Tomorrow I am going to be really busy probably so I won't be able to do a big update. So I am changing everything today. There is a new Quote O' The Week, Pic O' The Week and Poll O' The Week. Someone sent me this poll idea, but I forget who? Maybe Chad? Let me know on that one; Check out last weeks results:

    All That Glitters (287) 82%
    Glitter (60) 17%

    On the Grammy website, they have a cool profile on Mariah and here it is:

    Mariah Carey
    BIOGRAPHY: b. 27 March 1970, Long Island, New York, USA. This rock diva enjoyed an unprecedented string of US chart-toppers that helped establish her as the most successful female solo artist of the 90s. Carey was the third child of an Irish-American mother, a former opera singer turned voice tutor, and a half-Venezuelan father. As a schoolgirl Carey began singing on R&B sessions in New York when she met keyboard player and songwriter Ben Margulies who became her songwriting partner and close friend. With Carey writing the melodies and most of the lyrics, and Margulies arranging the songs, they developed a simple blend of soul, gospel and pop that showed off Carey's amazing vocal range to the full. Carey struggled as a waitress until fortune smiled on her. While at a show business party, a friend of the singer thrust a demo cassette into the hands of Sony Music's US president Tommy Mottola. While driving home from the party Mottola played the cassette in the car and was so impressed that he immediately set out on a Prince Charming-like quest to find his Cinderella. Carey was duly signed and her debut single, 'Visions Of Love', was a smash hit. It became the first of five US number 1s. Managed by Randy Hoffman (whose roster also includes Hall And Oates ) the success story proved swift and efficient in construction. In addition to providing four chart-topping singles ('Vision Of Love', 'Love Takes Time', 'Someday' and 'I Don't Wanna Cry'), her debut album stayed on top of the US album charts for 22 weeks, as she duly picked up 1991 Grammys for Best Female Vocalist and Best New Artist, an extraordinary start to a career. The title track of Emotions gave Carey a record fifth consecutive US number 1. Subsequent number 1 singles included a cover of the Jackson Five 's 'I'll Be There' (from MTV Unplugged ), 'Dreamlover' and 'Hero' (both from Music Box ). Her only UK number 1 to date, however, came with a cover version of Badfinger 's 'Without You' in February 1994. In 1993, she married Mottola (they subsequently divorced in 1997). Her seasonal Merry Christmas featured another hit single, 'All I Want For Christmas Is You'. Her 1995 release, Daydream, exceeded all expectations and notched up sales of over six million in the USA within three months of release. Some critics did question whether Daydream was a controlled exercise in vacuous formula writing, with little emotion or heart. Nevertheless, it produced two further huge-selling number 1 singles, 'Fantasy' and 'One Sweet Day', the latter a collaboration with Boyz II Men that topped the US charts for a staggering 16 weeks. Butterfly featured Carey's most adventurous collection of songs to date, and inevitably repeated the success of her previous albums. 'My All' became Carey's thirteenth American number 1, placing her behind only Elvis Presley and the Beatles in the all-time US singles chart. 'When You Believe', a duet with fellow diva Whitney Houston taken from the animated DreamWorks movie The Prince Of Egypt, was a huge worldwide hit during 1998. Carey returned in October 1999 with yet another US chart-topper, 'Heartbreaker', featuring rapper Jay-Z. 'Thank God I Found You', featuring Joe and 98°, repeated the success the following February. Her records have already sold over 110 million copies worldwide, and she is the biggest-selling female solo artist of the 90s.

    Mariah cat's head stone says...
    CLARENCE   1979-1997

    Maria sent me the above information which was taken from NY Daily News. At the link, you can see a small picture of Clarence's head stone. The cat was buried at Harsdale Canine Cemetery in New York, along with other celebrity pets.

    Mariah's Official Website Updated
    Anne told me that mariahcarey.com has been updated again. When you check out Papillion, a collection of pics from Mariah's videos, you have to supply your e-mail address and zip code. If you are not register, you can not watch Papillion!! Also, Mariah has answered some more fan questions, isn't she the best? Did you know that Mariah is the opening voice for the Honey video. They used a filter to make the voice very low, how cool is that??? I never knew that personally, but anyhow you can check it all out at her fab website!

    Mariah and Tommy JUST miss each other
    Like ships passing in the night, Sony Music honcho Tommy Mottola just missed bumping into ex-wife Mariah Carey Sunday night in L.A. Mottola was at Mr. Chow's having dinner with his new wife, Mexican singer Thalia. Moments after they left, Carey came in for dinner with her boyfriend, Luis Miguel. I understand a lot of people there were breathing a sigh of relief.
    (Taken from NY Daily News and a big thanks to Dana for sending it to me!)

    MClogo New Picture of Mariah
    Okay I was cleaning up my hardrive and I found this pic of MC. I know someone sent it to me recently and I know she is in Guam or somewhere in this pic, but I forget where. Anyhow, check out the nice pic to the left by clicking on it!

    New Pictures
    I added 12 or so new scans to Gallery 48! The pics are taken from the Spain/Paris concert for the Rainbow Tour 2000! The pics are WONDERFUL and are very close. Check them out if you like.

    Plus, Nacho sent me a scan of a new Diva's CD, I believe. It is released by Sony Music and it's features some of the best female singers, Mariah included of course. Does anyone have more information on it, whether it has been released yet or when it will be? I have heard nothing about this yet!

    February 21, 2001...34 days till Mariah's 31st Birthday.
    MClogo Britney on Mariah
    Ibraheem sent me a little clip from "In The Spotlight with Britney Spears," where Britney talks about Mariah briefly. I might add this little clip to the Audio section, we'll see but I made a little transcript of it:

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

    Grammy Awards
    Tonight s the Grammy Awards. Check out to see if MC gets an award and MAYBE, if we are all really lucky, she will make an appearance with Luis at the show!! I think though if that happened, it would of been announced on MC's site!! But we can hope right??

    Mariah's Birthday Cards
    So far, I have 20 cards from all of you that have sent them!!

    Mariah is "Favorite Female Artist of Our Generation!"
    Check out what Matt told me:
    Just wanted to tell you that I am a senior this year and that we always have a small book published at the end of the year called the "Senior Edition."  It has stuff that each senior writes about what they will miss, wont miss, their favorite things.  It also has stuff the whole class votes on together.  One of the categories was "Favorite Female Artist of Our Generation."  There were no nominees or anything, you just wrote who you thought should get it.  Mariah Carey won it too!  I was so happy, because of course that is who I wrote down no questions asked!  Christina Aguilera won "Female Artist Who Will Follow in Her Footsteps" LOL!  Talking about the footsteps of Mariah!  Well just wanted to let you know Mariah rules my senior class...HA HA HA!  Thanks again for the great website and updates!  BYE! :)

    MClogo Updates
    First off, I spent 2 hours yesterday revamping all the pages, excluding the NEWS one. Basically, I took away the big graphics, so the pages would load easier and then also, so all the pages would match, pretty much!! They are all very simply designed, like this website, so everything is easier for you to view!!

    Besides that, in the AUDIO section, you can hear the latest message from Mariah from yesterday. PLUS, Honey and Kate sent me a little snippet from the Germany concert where Mariah is about to drink Germa beer. It's REALLY funny and MC says what will happen if she actually drank the whole thing. To hear it, check out the AUDIO section!

    Finally, the normal Sunday updates. There is a new Pic O' The Week, Quote O' The Week (above), and a new Poll O' The Week. Thanks to Danielle for this weeks Poll idea and here are last weeks results:
    Do you think Mariah and Michael Jackson should duet in the near future?
    Yes  (272) 68%
       No  (126) 31%

    Terrence Howard Is a Player
    MClogo A promising young actor confronts ever more challenging characters -- and himself. By LYNN HIRSCHBERG
    Kicking back after a day on the ''Boycott'' set in his Atlanta hotel room with Jeffrey Wright, left, and Shawn Michael Howard, rear, who is also in the movie. Photograph by Gillian Laub.

    If I was white," says Terrence Howard, the best actor you've never heard of, "I would be huge. No question. But if you're black, you're going to struggle. It doesn't matter how much good work you do. You will struggle." Howard, who is calling from Philadelphia, where he lives near his estranged wife and three children, laughs softly. "I'm going to Prague in four days to do this movie with Bruce Willis and this other guy named Colin Ferrell. He's new. He's made only a couple of movies, and he's getting $2 million for this film. I'm still fighting to get half a million dollars after making a dozen movies. So I want to see what this kid's about. I'm like: Let's get in the ring and box. We'll see who wins." ....

    "Like everyone else, I first noticed Terrence in 'The Best Man,"' says Mariah Carey, who will star opposite Howard in the tentatively titled "All That Glitters," to be released this fall. "He was so subtle, but watching him, I also got a chill up my spine. It was kind of a standard part -- the friend who gets every girl -- but Terrence made it scary. Sexy and scary. That's what's so great about Terrence. He's never just one thing." ..

    Many thanks to Maria for the pic and article taken from the NY Post! You have to be registered to get this article though, so this is an exclusive, thanks again to Maria!

    True or Rumor...
    Darryl from Mariah Illusions sent me the following information. This information has NOT been 100% confirmed!!!!
    According to my local radio station, it is said that Mariah is to be recording a song for her soundtrack with rap artist LUDACRIS.  I know this may be hard to believe but I heard this with my own ears. 

    Mariah in J-14
    Here is what Hillary told me:
    I was looking through the March 2001 Issue of J-14 and Mariah is on page 32.  There is a small picture of her in the white "I Love You" tank top (which I believe she was wearing at a signing).  The article and picture are in the "What's Hot" section:

    "T-Shirts that make a statement!
    Word Up! If you've got something to say, don't be afraid to let your clothes speak for you. Take a tip from these stars and wear a T-shirt that gets your message across.  Wanna say something positive like MARIAH CAREY? Political like Johnny Depp (his tee supports the American Indian Movement) or sassy like Ananda?  Be like these celebs -- and wear your words!"
    Although they left Mariah's B-day out of the March calendar they did include a nice little quote on the 31st:
    "Watch out for sheep today. 'March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb.'"

    True or Rumor??
    Here is what Warren told me and this information has not been 100% confirmed. If anyone knows anything else about this or has heard anything more, please contact me!
    Can you help verify the following? On Friday 2-16-01 I was listening to Cleveland Radio station 93.1 FM at around 7:30 AM EST. It was the Tom Joyner Morning Show which I believe is syndicated. They were airing a live performance by the r&b group Cameo. The guy at the mike said we just recorded this song with Mariah Carey and it will be her next single. The next part of the broadcast was jumbled and I couldn't make out the lyrics. Can you check to find out if this is current stuff or old stuff? I'm guessing it's new because I don't recall Mariah doing anything with Cameo. If so, maybe I'm not as up to date as I thought. Keep up the great site and love to MARIAH always!

    Mariah in Blessed Union of Soul Song
    SparkleMC told me that Mariah is mentioned briefly in the song called Storybook Life and in the 2nd verse it says:
    "Mariah, she ain't seen me..."
    It goes on to name other celebrities, I am told!

    Mariah mentioned on Daria
    Here is what Tom told me:
    Mariah was mentioned on the mtv show daria today.  A football player had died and the principal said, "let's all sing one sweet day together."  it was the first season finale so i think it was 1996 when that song was popular

    Happy Birthday Mariah
    IT is now 4 weeks until I ship the package to Mariah of all your birthday cards for her.

    Several of you have already shipped the cards to me and plus some of you have included little presents for MC. If you would like to give Mariah a little present, feel free to send it to me and I will include it.

Everyone else, I suggest sending the cards as soon as you get it, preferably before March 1st so I can get the package together and ready to ship on March 16th!!

    We want to make this project BIG for Mariah so go get your birthday card and slap and stamp on it and send it to me so you can wish Mariah a Happy 31st birthday!

    Mariah is artist of the month
    Leo told me that www.critic.homestead.com announced that Mariah is article of the month. I tried checking out that link but I just got a page not found on their server so I guess we have to take Leo's word for it then :)

    Leo on mariahcarey.com
    Leo also told me that he is one of the fans that got his letter on Mariah's Official website. Here is his letter and Mariah's response:

    Here is what Michelle told me:
    Hi Regina! I just wanted to tell ya that this show we watch @ school called WBN played one of Mariah's songs today (2/15/01) . It was "Endless Love" which she dueted with Luther Vandross. They meant to play it on Valentine's Day but they had some technical difficulties. Hearing Mariah brightened up my day!! :0)

    Ann on Mariah
    ...A future Hall of Famer, the adorable Ann Magnuson, is in career high gear, having done everything from the very muscular The Vagina Monologues to a bunch of upcoming movies that have given her a pipeline to Hollywood. Ann's in The Caveman's Valentine as "the free-spirited bohemian sister of an artist suspected of murder," as she told me by phone from L.A. "Samuel L. Jackson, who's great, plays a homeless schizophrenic who's a onetime piano prodigy schooled at Juilliard. There's a fair amount of suspension of disbelief here." And some suspension of trousers too. Explained Ann, "Samuel and I have a black-and-white rolling in the hay—literally in black and white. Roger Ebert calls it 'the most unexpected sex scene of the season.' " I guess he hasn't read about Barry Diller and Diane Von Furstenberg.

    Ann replaced Farrah Fawcett in an unexpected flick called Night at the Golden Eagle as "a skanky crack whore with a heart of gold." And in the Mariah Carey vehicle All That Glitters, "I play a crazed publicist. Is there any other kind? Mariah was fine. She's very committed to having a movie career, so she took it very seriously..."

    EJ added about a half dozen or more songs from the Germany concert last year to his site. You can only get these downloads for 1 week though, so hurry up and download them now if you want to hear Mariah in concert from Germany last year. Click Here

    Speaking of Rainbow Concerts, last year yesterday Mariah started her tour in Belgium. I forgot to mention that yesterday and thanks to Ramsey for reminding me!

    Anytime You Need A Friend on Rock of Ages
    Jason told me more about the Anytime You Need A Friend video on VH1's Rock of Ages show and here is what I was told:
    They did "AYNAF" with a children's choir and with a gospel choir (of older people). This little boy said Mariah puts rhythm and feeling into her music. This old lady said Mariah has real soul (another added soul is when you can feel what they sing). Another lady said Mariah could be a member of their choir. The guy asked if they have any divas in the choir, and they said yes.

    Mariah is No Airbrush Queen
    Pop diva, Mariah Carey is known for her scantily clad outfits and barely-there tops, but as the saying goes, "if you got it, flaunt it." Mariah sure does flaunt it – and she sure does got it.

    While many people have speculated that her album covers and magazine photos were airbrushed, Mariah seems to have proven them wrong with just one photo. On Mariah's new official website (mariahcarey.com), established by Maroon Entertainment in December 2000, a brand new candid photo of Mariah has been posted in which Mariah is wearing nothing more than a string bikini.

    The photo shows Mariah standing tall on the ridge side of a yacht in the middle of the Caribbean Sea wearing a florescent red top and a Peter Pan-esque bottom. Just like those controversial album covers, her legs are muscular, abs tight and arms firm. And as far as skin, yes – she does have that bronze tan we all linger for. Meanwhile, Mariah's much lighter friend; Josephine is decked out on cushioned towels trying to catch some rays herself.

    While Mariah's weight does fluctuate like everyone else's, she is truly on top as far as this picture is concerned. And for those people who some how seem to think she is in some way fake, think again.
    (Many thanks to my buddy Elin for this article taken from Music News)

    Mariah on Rock of Ages
    Three of Mariah's videos were on Rock of Ages, I was told. First Crybaby, then I Still Believe and then Anytime You Need A Friend. Thanks to Meg, Kristy and Jason for this information and Jason sent me pretty detailed reports about the show and you can check them out below:

  • Crybaby:
    Mariah is on a new ROCK OF AGES with "Crybaby." I have seen 2 others with her - "Fantasy" and "Always Be My Baby." Oh - maybe "Heartbreaker" too. Anyway the people on ROCK OF AGES always trip me out. They showed these kids and old people "Crybaby." This old lady said it was pretty usual for Mariah, and another old guy said it would be better if Snoop wasn't in it as Mariah is good but he is not. These little kids said Mariah has a psycho guy. The old men said she is boozing to get over the guy. This little kid said Mariah is not lonely in real life, that he thinks she has "a lot of butlers." Too funny.
  • I Still Believe:
    I just saw another ROCK OF AGES. This one had "I Still Believe." When it came on the old people and the kids began to smile. This old man said Mariah is very pretty. This little boy said Mariah and the military do not mix. The host asked what the minitary was yelling. The old lady said, "Give us more!" and this little girl said, "I love you Mariah!" The host then asked what part of the military Mariah would be best in if called to serve. The little boy said, "cooking!"

    Translations of Gente Article
    Anna, my Luis correspondent, translated the article I talked briefly about yesterday and you can check out the translation below, isn't she so nice?

    Gente On Line  February 2001
    Luis Miguel and Mariah Carey
    She completed filming the very first movie of her life: "All That Glitters" with the British actor Max Beesly, boyfriend of Spice Girl "Mel B".  He found himself with a little bit of space in his tight schedule as a busy Latin star. And so, without giving it a second thought ,Mariah and Luis  set off for their winter holidays. Happy and more in love than ever, they headed out to the snow covered mountains of Aspen, Colorado.

    Snowball fights, walks along snow covered paths, a bit of skiing, and at night, romantic candle light dinners in a beautiful resort in one of the most exclusive areas in Aspen. Day after day they enjoyed their time together with hugs, kisses, and private jokes during their winter vacation.

    "I was very happy with my career in the world of music, but inside there was a bit of frustration, Finally, I realized that what I always dreamed of doing was acting," said Mariah, "and with this production, I've realized one of my fondest dreams." The singer, and now actress, was married to the Sony CEO, Tommy Mottola, from whom she separated in 1998. "Tommy and I had our good times together, but they were few and far between" she declared. Luis Miguel, for his part, looked very happy, very relaxed, and very secure in this long-term relationship; he never stopped holding her hand, even for a moment, and that big smile never left his face.

    The year 2000 was one of the busiest ones ever for Luis Miguel.  It included a long and intense tour schedule throughout the United States ( Los Angeles, Washington D.C., New York), as well as series of concerts in his homeland, Mexico.  All this work convinced him of the need for a well deserved rest. Here we find them on vacation in Aspen. She, like a bride, is dressed all in white, enjoying the snow covered landscape, running, playing until she's exhausted. He, in perfect color contrast, is dressed all in black; different but equal; separate but together.  For Luis and Mariah, the romance continues.....

    Caption under photo: Holding onto each other, not wanting to stop touching for even one moment, Luis and Mariah leave all rumors of a breakup buried under the Aspen snow.

    Anna was also very kind and translated the Mira tabloid article. Yesterday, I posted the scan into Gallery 47 and here is the translation:

    Mira Magazine---February 6, 2000
    Mariah Carey Parties In Puerto Rico  (and Luismi?)
    In the middle of the mystery surrounding her relationship with Luis Miguel, singer Mariah Carey spent a few days of vacation in Puerto Rico, and according to those who saw her in the discotheques of San Juan, she spent her time alone.

    Carey stayed in a hotel in the capital city, surrounded by her bodyguards and security staff at all times, but no matter, she was seen in the commercial shopping center Plaza Las Americas, where she spent hours shopping.

    Later, she was seen in various discotheques throughout San Juan having fun with her friend, the American rap singer "Da Brat". The pop Diva was dressed in a black top that left  little to the imagination, and a pair of "hot pants".

    When she was questioned by the paparazzi from the program "Xclusivo" Carey requested that they not ask her about Luismi. "He's in Mexico. We're okay, things are okay with us, we love each other, but please, don't ask me anymore questions about him."

    Could it be that they had quarreled? According to some sources near the couple, Luis Miguel planned to travel to San Juan a few days after Mariah's arrival to take her on  a yacht  and cruise through the Caribbean. But according to other stories, the couple has separated.
    (Note: this rumor was subsequently denied by Cindi Berger).

    Photo captions: With the Rapper Da Brat, she frequented the "discos";here she is with two Puerto Rican fans.
    With her sexy hot pants "La Carey" left the boricuas (Puerto Ricans) with their mouths open.

    Mariah mentioned in The Mirror
    Check out what Vicky sent me:
    Hi Regina, just thought i'd send u a quick email 2 let u know that MC was mentioned in an English newspaper called "The Mirror". It was a transcript of an interview Ali G (he was the guy in Madonnas 'Music' video) did with Victoria & David Beckham (Posh Spice & the Manchester United footballer). Heres the bit about Mariah, they are talking about Posh & Becks son 'Brooklyn':

    ALI: So, do you want him to grow up to be a footballer like his dad, or a singer like Mariah Carey?
    VIC: I'd like him to grow up to be a footballer like his dad, and I'd like to grow up to be a singer like Mariah Carey!

    Grammy Uncensored
    Jason told me they they showed Mariah's picture a few times from the One Sweet Day performance during little collages, but basically this show was not worth watching since MC was barely seen!! I mentioned this in yesterdays news!

    -New Mariah Pics
    MClogo I picked up the Mira tabloid today and inside was 2 articles and I mentioned earlier this week. There is a new picture of MC with her friends, which I added to Gallery 47 (sneak peak of scans to right) and also on the next page are 2 pics of MC in Aspen, we have all seen a million and one time. The tabloid is only $1.70, so I would get it if you can find it. They carry this tabloid at most food stores.

    Nacho was VERY kind and sent me a funny pic of MC. They took her head from one of the Rainbow signings and stuck it on a Santa type body. Check out that scan in Gallery 47 also.

    -Kathie Lee calls her fans lambs too
    Howard Stern checked out Kathie Lee's site on Wednesday show, Alex told me that Howard mentioned Mariah briefly. They said how Kathie calls her fans lambs too and started a whole lambchops club for her fans. Howard also mentioned that Mariah Carey called her fans lamb. I went to Kathie's site, which you can too at http://www.kathielee.com/ and they have lamb graphics up and everything!! *sigh* Here is what Kathie said about Frank's and her charity organization called, "On The Lamb..."

    Why "On The Lamb"? You may think this a strange name for a record company so let me explain its origins. Several years ago, Frank and I started our own production company called "Lambchop Productions." We have used this company for many of the projects we have been a part of.

    Last summer when I decided to start a small record label to produce my music, the question that came up was, "What should we name it?" After careful consideration, we thought the name "On The Lamb Records" fit the bill. We've since had a lot of fun with the logos and the letterhead.

    We're hoping that the whimsical spirit of the name carries through to our experience making music.

    -Breakups and Makeups/Grammy's Uncensored

    -Twain is top choice for sweethearts
    (Launch) - Shania Twain has done it again. Well, Twain didn't do much this time, but her male fans did. The singer was the top pick for the second year in a row in a Valentine's Day survey. Conducted by SurveySite Research, the survey asked men what background music they would most like to hear while they cozy up with their sweethearts by a warm fireplace with a bottle of wine on Valentine's Day. Twain's music was the top choice, followed by the melodies of Celine Dion and Mariah Carey.

    -Mariah and Luis announce they are NOT seperated

    "As you can see is not true we are not longer together"said Luis Miguel hugging her girlfriend(the pic of them together in the snow)

      "yeah we do discuss like any other normal couple, but there was no fight. Actually, we can say we are living a new romance. Our relationship is better than ever and I hope it stays ike this for a long time"

      "This is not an EASY GOING relationship, Mariah said, we are both very busy with our cariers and we don´t have a lot of time to see each other. This year several times we tried to see each other in our free days but they would never match.But we´re still together cause we love each other very much. No question about that!"

    So those quotes were taken when MC and Luis were playing around in the snow in Aspen. Thanks much to Nacho for typing out this article for me!!!!!

    -Mariah in USA Today?
    This next question and answer was taken from usatoday.com A big thanks to Anna, my Luis correspondent, for the 411!

    The Celebrity Inbox
    answers your questions each Friday. Send inquiries to celebrity@usatoday.com
    Q. What is Mariah Carey up to now? What are her next projects?

    A. This fall Mariah Carey stars in All the Glitters, a film about an aspiring young singer (Carey). In 1999, Mariah Carey told USA TODAY: "The film is set in the club scene of the early '80s. My character is in a girl group. She's discovered by this DJ, and they have a relationship. But the film is more about her getting in touch with herself and her mother — because she gets taken away from her mom at an early age." Despite the comparisons to Carey's own life — Carey and the character are both multiracial; some have compared the DJ and Carey's ex, Tommy Mottola — Carey says the film is not at all autobiographical.

    -Mariah's dolphins poisoned!!
    Check out what Matt from Mariah World sent me:
    You probably are already aware that the dolphins Mariah swam with during her visit to Perth in 1998 were tragically poisoned last year. I was watching my local news a few weeks ago and there was a report about a special dolphin memorial statue which they are hoping to establish outside the marine park. The reporter said that in order to build the memorial, donations from the public would be needed. They then said that celebrities would also be asked if they were interested in providing a donation for the memorial. Footage of Mariah swimming with the dolphins was then showed.

    -No Authority on Mariah in October
    Question: If you could sing a duet w/anyone, who would it be and why? Luv, Roxxan

        Eric: I would like to do a duet with Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy.Tommy: Eminem.Danny: Mariah Carey. Ricky: I would like to do a duet with a rock group. We love Limp Bizkit and stuff like that. I think it'd be cool to have a rock band as the opening act on our tour.

    -Mariah in Gente--New Pics
    The Feb. 7th issue of Gente magazine has an article that talks about MC and Luis in Aspen.

    -Luis to work with Baby because of Mariah
    Check out what my buddy Nini told me:
    Okay, this news was reported on some new gossip that's shown on Telemundo called Cotorreando. Mariah is helping Luis out with his new album. She introduced Luis to Babyface and he's now going to produce a song on Luismi's next album that he'll start recording next month. The show said Mariah and Luis are not breaking up!!!  They're relationship is stronger than ever and are now seriously talking about having a child in the near future. 

    -Mariah mentioned in Rolling Stone
    MaRiAhSnUm1FaN told me that MC is mentioned in the latest issue of RollingStone Magazine. Here is what it says:

    "After Humbling the likes of MARIAH CAREY, Celine Dion, and Shania Twain during the 1998's inaugural Divas Live, Aretha Franklin will get the full tribute treatment in VH1 Divas Live: The One and Only Aretha Franklin, scheduled to air April 10th from New York's Radio City Music Hall"

    Mariah Carey's much-talked-about film, which has been condensed from "All That Glitters", to simply "Glitter", seems to now have a definite release date of October 5, 2001. Earlier this year Cinema.com reported that the movie would be opening March 2 - but it seems that "Glitter" was pushed back several months from the original March 2001 release slot, as part of a group of films that includes "From Hell" and The Dubbed Action Movie: Enter the Fist"

    "Glitter" will be opening along side "The Queen of the Damned," which stars fellow diva, Aaliyah.

    "Glitter" is a fast paced, cutting edge love story set in 1983 against a backdrop of the hip New York City club scene. Mariah Carey portrays Billie Frank whose drug and alcohol addicted mother loses custody of her at the age of ten. Billie grows up in a foster home in one of the roughest neighborhoods in New York with her two best friends Roxanne (Tia Texada) and Louise (Da Brat) who help inject a lot of humor and fun into what is a very difficult and wounded childhood for Billie. While struggling to make ends meet, she finds somewhat of a soul mate in the hot, influential DJ named Dice (Max Beesley) with whom she pursues her dreams of becoming a singer and in hopes to one day be reunited with her mother. Throughout the movie we watch this romance develop along with their dreams and we are carried along on Billie's journey to find her mother and come to terms with why she was abandoned.

    Obviously, Ms. Carey will be providing the music for the film. A soundtrack will be release to accompany to soundtrack, and is slated for a September release. The music of "Glitters" has been carefully selected to reflect the time period as well as the emotional through-line of the film. It has been reported that Mariah worked on the soundtrack with authentic producers of the early 80's era such as Rick James, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Prince and others.

    -Mariah Carey Catches Up With the '80s Revival
    By Teri vanHorn
    Mariah Carey, has, like, gone totally '80s. Not only is the singer's upcoming film All That Glitters set in the decade of Rubik's Cubes, big hair and acid-washed jeans, but the soundtrack will be dominated by the era's pop sound.

    Though the film was originally expected as early as March, a representative for 20th Century Fox said Friday (February 2) that All That Glitters will not hit theaters until the second half of 2001. The picture, which co-stars Da Brat and Eric Benét, wrapped shooting in October. It was filmed in Toronto and New York.

    Carey collaborated on the soundtrack with "Super Freak" singer Rick James and production team Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. The record will also feature contributions by Da Brat and a duet between Carey and Benét.

    "We tried to create the feel and the sonic landscape of the time, which was pretty easy for us to do, because in '81 we were in the Time and starting that whole Minneapolis sound," Jimmy Jam said. "We actually pulled out a lot of old keyboards and drum machines we used back then. [Carey] said it would be cool to do something like the S.O.S. Band, so we pulled out the drum machine that we used for the S.O.S. Band records in the '80s. It's amazing, you plug that stuff up, and you're really, like, back there."

    Jimmy Jam said Carey is "the quickest and most creative" artist he and Lewis have collaborated with. "Usually when we're with her, we don't have a lot of time. She'll fly into town for six hours and say, 'We have to write three songs.' "

    Carey told MTV News in October that the soundtrack will also include a few covers, but she would not disclose which songs she's revisiting.

    All That Glitters marks the first starring film role for the songstress, who had a small part in 1999's The Bachelor. Carey, who plays and up-and-coming singer named Billie, is also producing the picture.

    -New Picture of Mariah
    I added a new cool picture of Mariah in Gallery 47 today. Check it out, if you got a little extra time. Many thanks to Crybaby Land for the pic!

    -New release in March?
    Nick e-mailed info@sonymusic.nl and asked about the "Mariah release" in March 2001! They said that there is a planned release in March for Holland! However, Mariah answered one of her fans questions on her official website saying that no, there will NOT be an album release in March, only in August 2001 for the All That Glitters Soundtrack. So we can forget all talk about the March release now! Maybe someone should inform Sony; hee hee.

    February 5, 2001...
    MClogo -mariahcarey.com Updated
    MAriah has left a new message on her official website. She said that responses to our questions will be added later today, probably anywhere between 11 am and 5 pm EST!

    -Happy Birthday Mariah
    I have gotten over 200 e-mails about sending Mariah a birthday card in less then 1 week, so again it's looking good. However, my mailbox is overflowing, so I created a seperate e-mail address, if you want to know the information on where to send the birthday cards. You can e-mail me at happy31bdaymc@aol.com.

    Plus, the cards will NOT be sent to Mariah's Official Fan Club, as some of you were thinking. They are being sent directly to MC, so she can get them before her birthday! I will also be buying a present for her to include inside the package from all of us. If you have something you would like to send MC, along with your card, contact me and we can talk. Since so many people are sending birthday cards, I can't take too many things but if I have to, I'll buy a huge box!! I bet Mariah would love to get some presents from her fans too :)

    Also, if you can not afford to send me a card, as Asma brought to my attention, e-mail and we can figure something out. I'll buy one for you and you can e-mail me what you want to say to Mariah for her birthday wish! Overall, we can work something out!!

    -Mariah digs for '80s gold on 'All That Glitters'
    Mariah Carey, has, like, gone totally '80s — the singer is putting the finishing touches on the soundtrack to "All That Glitters," her upcoming flick based in the decade of Rubik's Cubes, big hair and acid-washed jeans.

    The disc will be dominated by her vocals and music steeped in the sound of that era. Though the film was originally expected as early as March, a representative for 20th Century Fox said Friday (February 2) that "All That Glitters" will not hit theaters until sometime in the second half of the year. The picture, which co-stars Da Brat and Eric Benét, wrapped shooting in October. It was filmed in Toronto and New York.

    Carey collaborated with "Super Freak" singer Rick James and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige) on the soundtrack, which also is expected to feature contributions by Da Brat and a duet between Carey and Benét.

    "We tried to create the feel and the sonic landscape of the time, which was pretty easy for us to do, because in '81 we were in the Time and kind of starting that whole Minneapolis sound," Jimmy Jam said. "We actually pulled out a lot of old keyboards and drum machines we used back then. [Carey] said it would be cool to do something like the S.O.S.

    Carey told MTV News in October that the soundtrack will also include a few covers, but she would not disclose which songs she's revisiting.

    "All That Glitters" marks the first starring film role for the songstress, who had a small part in 1999's "The Bachelor." Carey, who plays and up-and-coming singer named Billie, is also producing the picture.

    -Mariah on Radio
    Yesterday I said that maybe MC called in for a special "Valentine" message for Kiss Fm 102.7 because that is what Anna's friend told her. However, yesterday, Anna actually heard it. There is an afternoon DJ named "Valentine" and Mariah did a small promo for the stations saying, "Tune in to 102.7 Kiss FM. Love ya Valentine!" So now that's cleared up!

    -Crybaby #1
    Check out what Uwe told me:

    "Crybaby" by Mariah Carey is  # 1 again on the VIVA Text Readers Chart. (VIVA ist the biggest German Music TV and the VIVA Text Readers Chart is made by fan poll.) Unfortunately "Crybaby" isn't on the VIVA playlist. So the fans show with their voting how much they love this song.

    -Yesterdays All That Glitter Pictures
    Aurelie told me that yesterdays pictures of MC on the set of All That Glitters were not from a recent magazine but one that was published a month ago. The magazine is not available anymore.

    However, in the French magazine, there is an article about Mariah's apartment in NYC and there are pics of her from the InSyle photo shoot a year or two back.

    -New Mariah Site=Mariah Buzz
    Shayne created a new lovely site on Mariah and you can check it out at the link below:

    -No Angels on Mariah
    No Angels was on a German talkshow a few days ago and one of them was asked to sing something and she sang part of "Hero." Thanks to Bogi for this information!

    -Rumor Ville
    Eva told me that last Thursday on a tv show called Hoy (Today), the host said that Luis was very upset about his breakup with Mariah and canceled the recording of his new cd. He locked himself up in his Acapulco house and is drinking a lot! Eva said no other program has talked about this!

    My thoughts is that, like all the others, it just a rumor. Luis and MC looked so happy together in those pics taken from Aspen, so sadly, it's just more rumors about a "breakup!"

    -Bit's O' Info...
    Here is some various information on Miss Mariah:

  • mschat99@webtv.net:
    Today in the car I heard Hero, and also, my mom who works at Bally's casino in Vegas, said they always play MC in the morning in the coffee shop..
  • Kristy:
    I was watching MTV snowed in and during commercial break a commercial celebrating black history month and it showed various artists and one of them was mariah and it was a picture clip of her from the "Thank god I found you" single and it simply said her name. I thought I should tell u so u could check it out! enjoy!
  • Ma'ayan:
    Today i saw the 'Ricki lake show' (from 1998 or 99)and the show was about kids that look like celbrities, so they bring a kid that look like Mariah!

I mean is that like a problem that I need to deal with? Help me out. No, honestly, with all the jokes and all the nonsense I call up with, I know it's so hard for me because my way of dealing with, when I'm in a kinda like, bad place is turning it into a joke which sometimes gets me through it. But, honestly, what I wanted to say is, I appreciate you so much that looking at these letters just, yeah you bring a nice tear to me eye sometimes.

    -Mariah Carey & Michael Jackson to duet?

    There are rumours going around that Mariah Carey recorded a duet with Michael Jackson. The song is supposed to be on the long-awaited new studio-album of the King of Pop. The album is scheduled to be released end April. At this moment nothing has been confirmed about this already much discussed duet, but we'll keep you posted! What's defenitely for sure is that Michael Jackson will release a Greatest-Hits album in the end of February.
    This is the translation from Mariah's Official Sony Site about the possible duet. Many thanks to Elin, Val, Marten, Liron, Lucie, Marjolein, Alen and anyone else I forgot. Several of you sent me this translation and I appreciate it!

    -Mariah at Las Palmas
    Here is what Tom told me:
    Hi, I was listening to Howard Stern this morning and it was actually taped Thursday night at the Playboy mansion in LA.  Howard said that the night before (Wed. night) his friends called him at his hotel room and said he should come to a bar/restaurant call Las Palmas which is THE place to be on Wed. nights in LA. His friends told him that "Mariah Carey and Hugh Hefner were there."  But he didn't go.

    -Valentine Promo?
    Anna, my Luis Correspondent, told me that her friend told her that she heard a special Valentine Promo on L.A. radio station Kiss.fm (102.7) from Mariah. MC says something along the lines of, "I love you Valentine." Has anyone else heard this or even know if this info is correct. Anna didn't hear it herself, so she isn't sure if it is true either!

    -Bit's O' Info...
    Here is some various pieces of information that fellow Mariah fans told me:

  • Kristy:
    On TRL today, February 2, 2001, for an old school christina aguilera flashback for her video "what a girl wants" they showed a clip of Carson saying to Christina "Has anyone ever told you that you sing better than mariah?" she then laughed and it went to the next clip! JUST WANTED 2 LET YA KNOW! carey on!
  • Dennis aka Sexy Chops:
    Moreover, I've got some bits for you: Debelah Morgan was invited to the German TV show "Interactive" which is broadcasted by VIVA, a music channel. She said she loved Mariah and considered her as big idol.
  • Asma:
    I don't know whether you know this or not but there is a new The Roof remix on the Napster program. It's called The Roof (Dope remix).
  • Federica:

    -Public Lives
    Most of us are fortunate enough not to be rich and famous. You disagree? You'd rather be in that category? Yes, of course it would be nice, at least with a cursory examination. But there's a heavy price to pay and I'm not sure a lot of us could handle it.

    A couple of things we saw this weekend brought the discussion on this subject into focus. The first was George W. Bush. Needless to say, he has his fame and has cameras and microphones recording his every move and utterance. While at a speaking engagement, not noticing an open microphone at a nearby podium, he leaned over to Dick Cheney and pointing out into the mass of reporters, singled out a New York Times scribe and said, "He's a major league asshole." Oops. People heard it. It's now a big political news item. I have too many candid asides to make to have to think about being wired to the world. No thanks.

    The second instance, we were watching the VH1 rerun of the Divas show. Before the singing portion was a countdown listing women who qualify to be in the top divadom spots. With each presentation there was some biographical, gossipy even, information the announcer gave us. When they were showcasing Mariah Carey, one of our favorites, they were really dishing. "And at such-and-such hotel the Diva requested pink toilet paper and..." At first thought you might think, what a demanding b**ch!

    We have seen Mariah interviewed many times and there's a certain truthfulness we see that cuts through all the bulls**t questions she's asked. I thought, what an affront. She never personally requested any such pink toilet paper. As if someone with her time schedule can make all the arrangements for her tour herself, calling up hotels and making demands. It was obvious a staff person made the request, if at all. If it was, it might have been someone loyal to Mariah who knew she liked pink, and made the request of her own volition without consulting the star. But look how it was played off. 

    Being in the limelight whittles away at your integrity and there are always people out there, well-intentioned or otherwise, who are constantly presenting you through their own personal filter. It is bad enough to work for someone who sometimes puts you into a position of compromising yourself without having your staff, media hounds, and others stripping you bare daily.

    We started thinking of the hundreds of famous people we've seen interviewed over the years and the most constant theme is how they have given up so much privacy once they became well-known. Of the constraints put on them. Of the protection people who shadow them night and day. Of the freedom lost. Of the social lives that don't exist because they can't go to public events.

    So it's a dream of many people to become rich and famous. But for many of the ones who actually get there, they find it isn't a dream they stepped into, but a nightmare. They have paid a very high price. 

    Sometimes, when I go through my gargantuan mood swings, and wonder what went wrong, why I didn't become a star, why I am not rich, I think maybe there was some guardian angel watching out for me, making sure I didn't trade away something really valuable. I have privacy and freedom and the happiness of knowing that no one cares enough to follow me around and record my screw ups and personal quirks. Or maybe it wasn't a guardian angel. Maybe the screw ups and the personal quirks alone were enough to insure my station in life.

    -Eminem Loves Mariah
    Below, you will find an excerpt of an interview Eninem did with MSN. It's nice that he loves Mariah Carey but I doubt MC and Eminem will be getting together anytime soon, well at least if Luis has any say in it :) Thanks to SUMar235 for this info. To read the whole interview, click here.
    Is there a female celebrity out there that you'd like to get with?
    Female celebrity? Mariah Carey. If she's reading this...I love you!

    -Mariah Carey duet with Michael Jackson?
    On Mariah's Official website for Sony, in the European News section, they talk about the duet with Michael. However, it's in another language! Couldn't figure it out at altavista, anyone got the translation because I would love to know what it says! Thanks Lance for the info!

    Mariah Carey in duet met Michael Jackson ????
    Geruchten doen de ronde dat Mariah Carey een duet heeft opgenomen met Michael Jackson. Dit nummer zou op het langverwachte nieuwe studio-album van de King Of Pop komen. Het album staat gepland staat voor release eind april. Momenteel is nog niks officieel bevestigd over het nu al spraakmakende duet, maar we houden je op de hoogte. In ieder geval is zeker dat eind februari een nieuw Greatest Hits-album van Michael Jackson verschijnt.

    -Mariah in TV Y Novelas
    In this magazine you can find the pictures of Mariah and Luis in Beverly Hills. Cheyanne is on the cover and the article gives more details. Here is what my Luis Correspondent, Anna, told me about it:
    The restaurant is called Mr. Chows, and it also discusses how even though Luis has a 12-cylinder Mercedes that he drives around L.A. like an expert, when he and Mariah go out to restaurants. They usually like to enjoy drinks with dinner, and rather than drink and drive, Luis will call for a limousine to transport them. Smart move!

    -First All That Glitters Release-Back To Me?
    First of all, let me say this has NOT been confirmed. But at dotmusic's chart forum, it lists that Mariah Carey's next single will be Back To Me! There is no release date listed, just says for "future releases!" So obviously, Back To Me should be from the All That Glitters Soundtrack! We'll have to see if this is true! Many thanks to Matt from Mariah Network

    -All That Glitters hits stores in August in Japan

    -Mariah Carey and Luis Miguel enjoy cold holidays.
    Akane was very nice and translated the article I posted yesterday. Also, a big thanks to GBStud2004!!! 

    Aspen, United States, 28th January, 2001.- The couple conformed by Luis Miguel and Mariah Carey use their several obligations they have wround the world for travelling and going for walks together as long as they can.

    After almost 2 years of relationship, the singers, who have been hounded by the press since the beginning of their relationship, love travelling to places that they can walk unnoticed. However, they haven't succeded at it because they are always followed by the paparazzi. Just a couple of months ago, they were in the Bahamas, where they were sunbathing almost the whole day. On this ocassion, the famous singers decided to change the weather and they went to Aspen, Colorado, where they enjoyed cold but romantic holidays. The "Emotions" performer had fun with her dog and the snow, and the mexican singer observed her attentively while he tolerated Colorado intense coldness, which didn't affect Carey

    -New Picture of Mariah from the set of All That Glitters
    Marjolein was very nice and sent me a scan of Mariah from the Dutch magazine called "Yes!" I added the picture to All That Glitters Gallery #2 It has two pics of Mariah on the set of All That Glitters in New York! Here is the translation of the article:

    Mariah Carey is busy filming All That Glitters. In this movie she's playing a girl that will do anything to get famous. The movie is expected to be released spring 2002.

    -Mya on Mariah
    mariahvbianca@hotmail.com told me that on a UK TV program called This Morning, singer Mya was on and said that Mariah was her inspiration and was the inspiration for most USA singers these days. Plus, she said she used to work for "Camp Mariah!"

    -Mel kisses better than Mariah?
    On a UK show last Saturday, Mel B (aka Scary Spice) said that Max Beesley told Mel that she was a better kisser than Mariah. The interview, Declan Connelly, replied "Well, of course he's gonna say that." Mel also said , "Mariah is a beautiful woman, but I'M a better kisser."

    My opinion is that Mel is a little insecure about locking lips with Max since she needs to discuss this on tv!!!!!

    -Mariah in Magazine
    Ashley told me that there is a small picture of Mariah in the new issue of CosmoGirl (March 2001). She is the birthday section!
