MC on MTV NEWS!
Sarah told me that MC was on Today's MTV News Brief. It showed Carey being interviewed and talking about how it means a lot to her to perform her personal songs. She says that when she sees a fan cry, she has to cry cause it really touches her. She also said singing her personal songs on stage makes her more vulnerable.

London info form Jennifer and review from Tatianna!
Regina~My fiancee was at the London concert and he got me a book, shirt, and a LAMB! I'm sooooooo excited! He said it was great, and he was at her last London concert on the Daydream tour...this one was MUCH better he said. He said she looked a little flushed, but was at ease for the most part. Can't wait to get my "Chops" in the mail :o) I'll let ya know what she looks like.
Review from tatianna5@hotmail.com
hey regina!!!!!:))))) the concert was amazing!!! mariah looked exceptionally beautiful and she has lost a little weight but she looks so good!! i mean, she never needed to lose any anyway! for me, her voice has not deteriorated at all, it is still very powerful and moving!! she was especially moving during petals(she had tears in her eyes, i looked around me and everyone was either cryin or had tears in their eyes!! aaawa!) and cant take that away!! WOW,also, the performance of HONEY blew me away!! she sang it and danced so well!!she started with emotions and hit the high notes perfectly!! the only dissapointment for me was that when she sang the make it last remix, her part was not as good but thats because she has to save her voice!! :) However, everything else was so so so good!! the ensembles as she called htem , were BEAUTIFUL, especially the dresses, and i LOVED her cut off jeans at the end with an amazing sparkly top and AHHHHH THOSE SHOES!!!WOW, oh well i dont wanna completely give everything away but as most ppl know it is not just a concert of her singing!! there are relaly cool, fun in between parts where she shows how kind and funny she is!i havent got time to give a more detailed review because i have soooo much homework but i just wanna say that i didnt think that it was possible to become an even bigger fan1! btw. these ppl were being very disrespectful to mariah by doing stupid things with hteir hands on mariha on the screen, it wasnt funnny at all but stupid!! mariha woulndt have been happy if she sawit, i mean ok, everyone has their opinion but for me that was very pissing off!! gotta go now but most importantly, we got to give her our fanbook created by the webmaster of M2K, nick!! it was sooo beautiful and she said"oh im gonna read this tonite before i go to sleep" and i know she will!! see ya

Mariah sells out tour dates
NASHVILLE (Billboard) - All nine dates of Mariah Carey's upcoming North American tour have sold out. The tour begins March 16 at L.A.'s Staples Center and ends April 11 at New York's Madison Square Garden. John Meglen of producer Concerts West says Carey's schedule prohibited multiple dates at this time, but he would not rule out more shows later in the year. "We would love to see her do some more, and we're keeping our fingers crossed," he says.

Magazine News!
News from Alli!
hi! I just wanted to tell you that Mariah is in the new J-14, the April 2000 issue, there is only one pic. and an article with it about her nails and here it is: "MARIAH Carey uses her hands a lot when she sings. WHY? Bet it's because she ahs naturally nice nails. In her case it's genetics. For the rest of us, weekly manicures should help." She is also #6 in their top 10 singers. I will try to scan the pic. tonight
News from GucciGurl317

MC Jeans!
SO MANY people are e-mailing me about the jeans that MC is wearing and how they are being sold. I am being told about ads and how people saw them in stores like DEB and other clothing stores. However, none of them seem to have MC's name on it?!? Oh and if you are trying to find a pair, check your major clothing stores. I know MUDD is featuring these jeans!

February 27, 2000...
Someone STOLE MC's Necklace!
Remember around last week how I wondered what happened to Mariah's Lucky Necklace that she has been wearing for SEVERAL years now. Well Debra informed me that last night Mariah announced ON STAGE at the London concert that someone had indeed stolen the necklace but now she has a new one. WOW, who would do such a thing?

London Review & Merchandise Pricing!
Debra also sent me a tiny review of what happened. The cool part though is that she wrote down how much everything pretty much cost at the concert. I was SO happy she did this :) However, I believe that it is the same price in US dollars, anyone know? Oh and I can't believe she is selling a lamb there..that is so funny. Have to get one :) Here it is!
For Crybaby there was a video of Snoop doing his part in the song and Mariah was in shorts and small top in a bed.For Fantasy she and the dancers danced on chairs, Heartbreaker they put a boxing ring on the stage and Mariah had a fight with Bianca which was great and of course Mariah won. she brought some people on stage and they eat fish and chips and she feed this guy with starwberrys and cream also beer (larger). there was three big screen one in the middle and one at each side, sometime during the concert people would put their hands in the camera and made hand gestuers on the pic on Mariah is was so funny. the standing room was not full but the seats were. You will have to take lots of money. I spent £57. there are 7 t-shirts 5 are £15 one is £18 and one is £20, keychain £5, poster £5, programme £8, flashlight £5, lamb £20, there was also posters and t-shirts outside. i don't know what the price would be in $.

German Concert Review!
I will be adding a VERY long German concert review by Sabrine in the Forum, check it out!

Also a brief letter. This letter can be about why MC has inspired you, why you look up to her, what your favorite song/CD is, or any general comment that you want Mariah to read! It is totally up to you, but because of the way I am going to arrange this, please try to keep it under a page or two! I have a definite way of getting this to Mariah, so please send your stuff to me ASAP! Don't forget the picture, that's important! If you want to participate in this, e-mail me at MCarey327@aol.com and I will give you the address to send your info. Please try to get this done within 2 weeks! THANKS!

MC Jeans Auctioned!
It seems that MC is giving a lot of her jeans up for auctions recently....here is what MARIAHcare told me:
Hi, Im from Pittsburgh, PA and the local radio station in the area B-94 had an auction at my local mall for raising money for Childrens Hospital, and they had a pair of Mariah's jeans up for bid starting at $200, im not to sure how much the final bid was but i had seen an actual pair of mariah's jeans with the waist band cut off, it was a great feeling. They had plenty of other auctions such as Smash Mouth, Kid Rock, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Ricky Martin and tons more. They had Hanson perform also, I couldn't believe the jeans were actually there, i had heard about it like 2 days ago and had to head out. It was so unbelievable! I thought is it was so cool. On the way down the mall, in the car one of anouncers was saying how the jeans were up for auction, he said if he would win those jeans they wouldn't be hanging on his wall, he would be wearing them day and night.

Hey!! This is Caleb from Maine and I will be attending the Boston, Massachusetts concert at the Fleetcenter April 4, 1999. And with the help of my friend, Charley, we are creating a very special fan book for Mariah. She has done so much for us and it is the slightest thing we can do for her. Anyhow, we were wondering if you could please post and place this letter in your news and your news letter to spread the word. It would be greatly apreciated. The guidelines aren't hard just let it be thoughtful. We dont care how long it is just as if it is loving. Please tell them to sent their letters to Mariah to the following address:

Magazine News!
Alex told me that there is a Mariah mention on the new cover of National Examiner. He said it is about that Plane Crash rumor but when he flipped through inside real fast, he saw no pics? I'll try and check it out tomorrow but Lillian sent me some magazine news...
hey Reg, i thought you would want to know that mariah is in 3 magazines. she's in Essence with missy elliot on the cover, but it's a really small pic and it talks about her pursuing movie roles. she's also in tv y novelas (feb. 28) i'm not sure on the date, but i think that's the right one. it has a pic of her from the AMA's, and she's also in "christina" magazine. it's a spanish magazine and it has a 3-page article on her and and her life with Luis. it doesn't have a date, but Jennifer Lopez is on the cover and there's a little headline that says "mariah carey: tiene un pasado que no conocia Luis Miguel" It has 3 pictures, two are from the Instyle magazine last year. one with jack in her kitchen and the other when she's in a pink nightie on the bed. the other one is also an old one with Luis, but it was in a magazine in like Mexico or something. this is the first time it's in an U.S. magazine. it's her and Luis hugging.

People Article!
Tanya told me that there is a short article on Mariah in the new issue of People weekly and she was kind enough to type it all out for us :)
On Feb. 17 in Manhattan a U.S. district court judge dismissed a copyright-infringement lawsuit that accused songbird Mariah Carey of basing her 1993 hit "Hero" on a similar tune written 1990 by would-be medleymaker Rhonda Dimmie. Dimmie claimed she had sent her creation to the 30-year-old chanteuse, but the court acknowledged that Carey "follow[s] a strict policy of refusing to review unsolicited recordings."

Billboard Article!
Zmick sent me the following article!
All nine dates of Mariah Carey's upcoming North American tour have sold out. The tour begins March 16 at L.A.'s Staples Center and ends April 11 at New York's Madison Square Garden.
John Meglen of producer Concerts West says Carey's schedule prohibited multiple dates at this time, but he would not rule out more shows later in the year. "We would love to see her do some more, and we're keeping our fingers crossed," he says.
Carey's current single, "Thank God I Found You" featuring Joe and 98 Degrees, is at No. 2 on The Billboard Hot 100 this week. She is currently in the midst of a string of European dates and will play London's Wembley Arena tomorrow (Feb. 26). After a date in Madrid, Carey is off to Asia for shows in Osaka, Tokyo, and Singapore.

Brandy Stealing MC's Jeans?
miss_bing_bong@webtv.net told me the following:

February 25, 2000...
Tour Book Pic!
If you are not in InfoMC, you should be. Last night I sent out word that I added a Tour Book Pic that Jahjah sent me. He had to cut off the edges since it is so big but it seems that from now on out, there will be tour books at every concert. Anyone got the rest of the scans? You can check out the BEAUTIFUL pic in Gallery 23!

Rolling Stone Mention!
Mc numba 1 told me that on page 26 in the March 16th issue of Rolling STone, they talk about the All That Glitters" Soundtrack and here is what it says:
"MARIAH CAREY has recorded five songs with legendary producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis for the soundtrack to the upcoming movie "All That Glitters", in which she also stars as an Eighties pop sensation."

Rosie Disses MC to Macy Gray, of ALL PEOPLE!
Sadly Rosie did it again today, she disses MC. The bad thing is that the guest she dissed MC to was non other then Macy Gray! YuMmYuMz told me the following:
Rosie has really upset me. I's so sick of her saying stuff about Mariah. Well anyways today Rosie was about the grammys, and she was talking with Macy Gray (im sorry shes SO ugly and she lookes like Chewbaca with a afro puff) anyways Rosie was like "well what are you gonna wear?...the think you wore on my show was cute. Remember what Mariah wore to the AMA's....(and it showed like a split screen of the leather black dress Mariah wore when she wa performing in the begining)....thats not a good idea" and then Macy Gray started cracking up and they were laughing together at Mariah. I cant stand Rosie anymore. how could she say that after she kinda apologized to Mariah about calling her a slut?? oh well hopefully this isnt the 50th mail of the same thing. thanks for listening!! : )

No Can Do "Down Under!"
It seems that MC is NOT going to OZ for her Rainbow Tour and MSG still stands as the last concert for the Rainbow Tour!

Joe, Opening Act?
While being bored at college today, I skimmed some old article. I read one for the Toronto concert and it said that Mariah's opening act will be Joe!! WOW, cool eh?

MC working with Prince!
Jahjah told me that in a french interview that MC did recently she said that she might be working with Prince and she really wants to also work with Michael Jackson. These possible collaborations will be for the forthcoming "All That Glitters" soundtrack!

MC Looses Grammy and Aguliera Mentions Her!
Chris told me that MC lost both awards last night. One she lost to Madonna and the other she lost to Santana. However Aguilera beat out Britney Spears and others as Favorite New Artist and here is what she had to say:
Aguilera said she hoped to follow in the footsteps of her idol, Mariah Carey, who won best new artist in 1990. Carey sings, writes and produces much of her own material.
``I want more writing credibility on the next album,'' Aguilera said. ``It's really wanting to be seen as a vocalist, because that's where my heart is and trying to take pop a little bit deeper than it is now. I wish it wasn't just about image

OK! Article!

gray@shakaan.com sent me the scans of the Singapore album and there are NO new songs on it. The pics are all the same and basically all it has is the US single of TGIFY Remixes! So NOTHING is new on the Singapore album!!

Dreamlover Mix! Sollart sent me the following link:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/club/feature_remixtopten.shtml
which take you to a site that discusses the best remixes. The first one listed is the Morales remix of Dreamlover by MC. Here is the article:
David Morales on 'Dream Lover' by Mariah Carey
Morales' mix on 'Dream Lover' turned the up and coming R&B star into a house diva with a mix that epitomised the 'handbag' genre of the early nineties. The bait was the percussive opening and the cut up vocal, then the catch was the piano drop…and what a drop it was. The mix was crisp, clean and oh so emotional with 'that' untouchable magic that Morales mixes quite often have. As Mariah went on to become a slightly more credible Celine Dion she clocked up credibility points by calling on the services of Morales every time she released a record. But like most one-way relationships the marriage soon hit the rocks. Mariah never recaptured a dancefloor in the same way, and though some say that was Morales' finest moment, remixes on Jamiroquai and Alison Limerick confirmed the man to be a true genius.

Vogue article!
People continue to e-mail me about the Vogue pics. One person said that the bikini pic is fake cause it doesn't have MC's birthmark. That may be so but what about the airbrushing technique? That could of easily erased that and I don't think Vogue would create fake pics and I KNOW I did not due it. Anyhow Meski translated the Vogue article and you can check it out on his site:

Joe and Funkmaster Flex at MSG?
Read below what Desiree told me:
I heard an interview on NY's HOT 97 last Tues. with Joe. I think he's going to be at MC's NY show. I only caught the very end of the interview so I'm not sure. But what I heard makes me think so. He was asked by Funkmaster Flex "Where is it, the Coliseum?" Joe said "No, MSG, April 11." They never mentioned MC, I must have missed that part. I think that Flex may be there too b/c after Joe said MSG he said something like, "Oh good then I can really blow it up". After the interview he played the Thank God I Found You remix.

Against All Odds Video Premiered!
Fabio told me that the Against All Odds video has premiered in Brazil but it is only her performance from the Homecoming Special!

New Pics!
My best friend Anja took over 100 pics from the Germany concert on Sunday and sent me 20 scans. All of them are in their special gallery called, "Anja Concert Pics!" Check them out on the PICS page!

Fake Pics?
I saw how yesterday people were posting on Anderz's messagboard that the Vogue pics were fake but to my understanding they are not. The one with the bra looks a tad funny but the others are heads I have never seen before. So as far as I know..they are not!

More Pics!
Due to lack of time, I did not add any other pics besides Anjas. However, Nick scanned 8 New Photos (actually 6 are new that I havn't seen) and you can check them and other exclusives at his site:
http://members.xoom.com/_XMCM/m1s/index.html
They are REALLY NICE PICS and I did some research and my local Borders book store will have this issue probably in tomorrow they told me. So hopefully it wil be in the US around later this week early next week :)

MC Still Perform?
Jake told me that MC performed Fantasy at the AMA's and then OSD at the Grammy;s in 1996 so it is possible for MC to perform on tomorrow nights show! So maybe the Dick Clark statement can be broken? I don't know and neither do you but tune in tomorrow night to the Grammy's! Thanks Jake!

Mira Magazine!
Chris from Chicago told me that MC is in a Spanish Tabloid called Mira. There are some nice big pics but they are all old. That is all the info. I got on that now!

'Mariah Fan helps others and wins her fantasy'
Pamela Zimmerman can call the win "Mariah."
She placed the winning bid Saturday night for a package of items donated by singer Mariah Carey to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation's annual Mardis Gras auction at the Royal Sonesta Hotel. Mardis Gras is yet a month away, but more than 500 supporters celebrated the event Saturday night. The charity auction was created 6 years ago to appeal to young adults. Now the audience is from all generations. Billy Costa of WXKS-FM (Kiss 108) helped rev up the excitement for the silent auction, which included trips, special events, and the personal donation from Mariah Carey. Zimmerman, a legal secretary, placed the high bid on Carey's autographed poster, [it was the Rollingstone from last year] CD, [# 1's] tickets to the singer's April 4 concert at the Fleetcenter, and the jeans the singer wore in the "Heartbreaker" video, duly washed and autographed on the back pocket. Carey even cut off and hemmed the waistband, a signature look, Costa said. Zimmerman said she will look the look by wearing the jeans to the concert. The Carey package was donated through Columbia Records senior vice President Charlie Walk, whose mother, Judi Walk, is a board member and volunteers for the cause despite working for another charity. "I work for the American Cancer Society," she said. "But, I have Crohn's disease. So, this is my passion. I need a cure." Event committee member Alec Stern expected to raise $75,000.

Many thanks to Ashley for this article!

Many thanks to my Mariah Three partner, Eric from Mariah Carey Archives for this next bit. It seems that there is a special Rainbow CD release in Singapore which contains a remix (short one) of How Much, longer edition of Rainbow Interlude and an extra song. Here is the tracklistings:
01. Heartbreaker
02. Can't Take That Away (Mariah's Theme)
03. Bliss
04. How Much
05. After Tonight
06. X-Girlfriend
07. Boyfriend / Girlfriend (like a How Much Reprise) (0:28)
08. Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)
09. Crybaby
10. Did I Do That?
11. Petals
12. Rainbow (4:10)
13. I Can See Clearly Now (3:27)
14. Thank God I Found You

Question?
What ever happened to Mariah's Lucky necklace? I don't see her wearing it anymore. Maybe she got rid of them because Luis made her see that she didn't need that false luck or maybe it was replaced by those bracelets she usually wears? Who knows?

Walter discusses MC!
Nini sent me a long article with Mariah's Ex-writing partner, Walter. Here are the MC parts:
The Grammy nominee for Producer of the Year is loath to say a bad word about Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey or any of the other mega-stars with whom he has worked.
Carey nearly fired him when she found out he had been dating singer Samantha Cole. "I had a personal problem with Samantha and a professional problem with Mariah at the same time," is all he will say.
"Everyone is so unbelievably talented when it comes to singing these days, this new breed of singers, they've all sat for the last seven, eight, nine, 10 years studying the whole Mariah Carey-Aretha Franklin thing — these singers are just so good, they're too good.

AWESOME New Pics..EXCLUSIVE Vogue!
Not only do I have new pics from the Germany concert, I have 3 new pics of MC from the Spanish Vogue Magazine (March 2000) in which she graces the cover. Many thanks to Evelyn for those pics. Also many thanks to K. Uwe Langer for the 4 Germany pics. All in all, check out all 7 BRAND NEW Pics in Gallery 22!

MC Mentiones ME?
First I have to say, check out the Forum for a GREAT review from Katy on yesterdays Germany concert. Now...As you all might know, Anja and I are best friend and yesterday she was in the front row of the Germany concert. A while back, Anja has given MC two letters from us (on two different times she met her) and on Friday she gave MC a third letter from each of us. Last night Anja helded a sign saying, "MARIAH PLEASE SING CLOSE MY EYES 4 ME -ANJA" Well Mariah saw it and was talking to anja DURING the concert. Then all of the sudden she says, "Don't you have a friend in the USA?" and Anja said yes! I don't know if she said my name cause Anja didn't say that but Katy also e-mailed me and told me that MC mentioned me :) I was so happy for Anja cause MC sat down and sang Close My Eyes and made eye contact with Anja a lot because Anja was crying to this song. She had a difficult past so she can really relate to this MC song and Mariah read her letter and knew this! So I was so happy for ANja, and later tonight Anja will be hopefully sending me her review and plus she took over 100 pics of MC at the concert. Maybe shewill scan some :D It's cool that MC knows that the two of us are best friends now though and because of MC that is how we met :D

MC at Grammies?
Several people e-mailed me about this as did Devin. It seems that CBS is running a commercial featuring 2 clips of MC in it for the 2000 Grammy awards. There is a clip of HEartbreaker and a clip of TGIFY in the commercial showing MC. We all know that MC will be doing a concert in paris on that night but maybe they will go to her in Paris? She performed on the AMA's so she is NOT allowed to perform on the Grammy's so there is no way they will show a performance from Paris, if they are sticking to the rules (dumb rule Dick Clark created saying that if an artist performs on AMA's, they can't perform on the Grammy's since he is in chargeof both!) SO I know MC won't be there and I highly doubt she will be shown from Paris but keep an eye for her, just in case while watching!

Walter Disses MC?
Well maybe this is why Walter and MC don't work together anymore, read the last paragraph of this article to find why. DaRe uhL j sent me an article from the San Francisco Chronicle which talks about his special trophey he will be getting..here are the MC related parts:
- "His records with acts such as Mariah Carey, Michael Bolton, Dion and Kenny G have sold more than 300 million records, and, for better or worse, his hand has helped shape the sound of American pop"
It talks about how he got famous. He took piano lessions @ age 3 and studied classical music, and was playing jazz when Narada Miachael Walden landed him for an audition for a band. He didn't get the part, but was playing keyboards on sessions produced by Walden, and he became part of the studio cadre. He grew unhappy with Walden cause he felt he wasn't getting proper credit, and wanted a share of the royalties. Sorry if I went off on a tangent, some of you might've wanted to know how he rose to fame. Back to the Mariah parts...
- "About this time Sony Records President Tommmy Mottola brought Walen a new singer htat Mottola had personally signed, named Mariah Carey. "When Tommy Mottola gets personally involved and wants to oversee a project, it is a very important project," said Afanasieff. "He started listening to tracks and asking questions." What Motolla heard was that Walden's keyboard plaer was making crucial creative contributions to the unfinished album. Mottola gave Afansieff 2 days to prove himself. Afansieff didn't sleep - "I don't know what was going to happen to my life." But he emerged from the studio with a song, Love Takes Time, that was slapped on the already finished album at the last minute and eventually became a second No. 1 hit off the multiplatinum debut that launched Carey's and Afanasieff's remarkable career. "Mariah and I developed suh a profound relationship, I got to keep working with her on all her records," he said. She has sold more than 125 million records and changed the way female vocals sound throughout pop music. (sidenote, the don't include quotes for the last sentence, but I think it's a typo). "Some of these singers who are coming up- Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson- for hte last 10 years, they've been listening to Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston records. They've been taught to over-sing." Afanasieff knows that he makes straightforward pop -"sometimes too pop"- but he does not apologize for the excesses of singers such as Carey, Dion, or Bolton. "It's part of their sound, part of their ability, so you've got to go pretty far with that," he said. "One of the special parts of My Hert Will Go On as there's no oversinging. It's not licks. It's not improvising- just pure, soulful melody." (I couldn't help but think that may have been a shot @ MC)
He said the current pop scene emphasizes young girls, boy groupos, and Latin Americans singing in English. "What are we going to do as a producer whowants to stay in the mainstream?" he said. "I'm going todo that for a moment. That's what people want at this phase. I got a taste. It's kind of cool to be a No. 1 selling producer. We're out of the Mariah Carey ballad phase. I've got to go along." (WHAT'S THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?!) "Ballads are ballads. We're never going to be without them. I know in the next 6 months, I'm going to be able to go in and do my huge pop ballad. Somewhere in the near futue, the next No. 1 song is going to be a ballad."

Correction!
There is going to be NO Mariah Weekend on MTV in the USA. It's for the European countries

French Contest
Jahjah told me that radio NRJ organized a concert to meet MC before her Paris concert and he knows the girl who one. He told me she is really nice and is going to go onstage with MC and is aloud to ask her a couple of questions. SO Jahjah is asking her if we can all write messages and give them to her and he is going to get back to me on more about this. When I find out, so will you. Stay Tune...

There you can enter to win tickets to the March 21st concert at the San Jose Arena. They will be giving out 2 front row tickets to the winners of the contest.

MC's Jeans for Sale
Courtney told me that there is an ad for the Mariah Jeans in the Seventeen Prom issue. It says nothing about the name of the jeans but they are manufactured by Mudd! Also she told me that Mudd got permission from Mariah's Management team to use this style. Anyone see them yet!

TGIFY Down!
Someone told me, I forget who, that MC's TGIFY single is now #2 on Billboard and "I Knew I Loved You" is #1. Please go get some singles and vote for TGIFY guys :) Lets give MC 62 weeks at #1!!!!

MC gets back at Macy Gray-You Go Girl!
I was laughing my butt off when I read this. MC is so civilized but then again so sarcastic! Mel told me that MC is in todays UK Newspaper. She talks about Lopez, Luis, & Macy Gray...here are the highlights (thanks Mel!)

  • There is also, of course, the good feeling factor stemming from her year-long romance with 29-year-old Spanish pop star Luis Miguel. From the vast bed on which she lies stroking a huge fake fur black coat, Mariah points proudly to two vases filled wit hundreds of long stemmed red roses. "Luis sent me them for winning my award (AMA awards). He is soooo cute," she says, going all girlie. Are you in love with him?
    "I think so", she says coyly. "He's an amazing person. We went bungee jumping the other day in Acapulco. "He has a boat there called Hero after my song"
  • The pair met in Aspen, Colorado through mutual friends. "They told me he wanted to have a party for me at this restaurant" she says. "I was late and he was thinking, 'How rude is this woman?' Then we just clicked".
  • Mariah's busy schedule means Luis has to jet all over the world to see her. Over the past 12 months, they have met up in 34 different countries. I may dress provocatively now, but in terms of my experience with men people in like ninth grade have been around the block more times that me. I've never had a one night stand".
  • Interviewing her is like gossiping with a female friend. She moans about feeling "bloated" and bitches about her rival. Suggest that Jennifer Lopez appears to have modelled herself on Mariah and she can't conceal her disdain. "DO yo think she is in the same league as a singer" she asks me incredulously.
  • Newcomer Macy Gray, the rising star behind he hit I try, comes in for even more of a tongue lashing. It was Macy who recently announced: "I'd love to punch Mariah Carey. She gets on my nerves when I see those videos of hers. I am 6ft tall, so I think I could take her in a fight".
    Crows Mariah " That was interesting. It got her a lot of press. She's not really taller. When someone has only had one single they should wait a few years and see whether they are still around to make comments like that".

    Supernova News=MTV Brazil!
    Camurati and some other people told me that a clip in Brazil is another word for video and that MTV Brazil is going to premiere the Against All Odds video on the 22nd I believe. Darn it, wonder when we will get it here in the US :)

    Concert News, A LOT! (Italy and Belgium!)
    Okay I added a review by Luke yesterday and the he e-mailed me saying:
    My name is Luke and I´m from Vienna, but I went all the way to milan for the milan concert. I just wanted to tell you, that MARIAH WASN´T LATE FOR ONE AND A HALF HOUR, BUT JUST FOR A HALF HOUR !!!! And about that, that Mariah was booed: It wasn´t that bad ! A couple of people from the audience just always began to whistle, everytime some songs were played to entertain the audience until Mariah came. THE AUDIENCE WENT CRAZY, AS MARIAH CAME ON STAGE. Just wanted to tell you. Bye, Luke
    Also Marco told me the following too:
    Hi Regina, I'm Marco from Italy and yesterday I was at Mariah concert in Milan. The review of Danielle isn't about the concert in Italy but that one in Belgium. Mariah wasn't so late in fact she started her concert at 21:30 (official time was 21:00) and at the show of Milan she didnt sing Sweetheart but Vision of Love. The concert was amazing MARIAH IS THE BEST. Her voice was wonderful (like the MSG concert) and she looked awesome. I LOVE MARIAH Bye Marco
    Then Jasper told me some good news and some bad news about MC's Belgium concert, seems the critics didn't like it but screw 'em, the fans matter the most and our opinions outranks theirs anyday right? hee hee...
    Hi Regina, I just read your news mail.Well I wanted to say something about the Belgium concert. The critics bashed the concert. (this really surprised me because it was so awesome, the only thing that was not nice was the long waiting). The review of the concert was full of bad lies (I even wonder if the guy who reviewed it was at the concert because everything he wrote was totally NOT true) It really was fantastic, her voice was in excellent condition, she gave a superb show (lasted 2½ hours). Never saw something amazing like this concert. I'm a guy and I didn't think Mariah's cloths were too little. Everytime she appeared in a great ensemble. She just wants to wear what she like and where she is happy in. That's fine with me. (I went to the concert to see a fantastic show and hear a fantastic woman, and not to drool because of her body). I've spoken to several girls who went to the concert also and they found it also great. Well about the intervals (when Mariah was changing cloths) I really did like the movies (I can imagine when you're not a real Mariah fan you don't understand the movies maybe that's why several people didn't like them). I actually played in one of those movies (when Bianca takes over during a signing session in a recordstore, I was one of the people waiting in line to get an autograph). And in another movie when Mariah is in the plane and Bianca is giving safety instructions. Mariah is reading a magazine and the cool thing is the magazine she is reading was our DMCA Fanclub Magazine "Carey On". (we gave her a copy of our mag when she was in Holland) I just think that people who dislike Mariah just can't stand when she is doing great and always will bash her no matter what she does and how great it is. Those people are just jealous. Jasper

    Hey!! Just writing to let you know that I am planning to create a beautiful fan book for Mariah and deliver it on the final day of her tour in NYC. I think this will be a very special book. Here's the plan: This fan book will focus primarily on the webmasters who devote so much time and energy to Mariah. They will be in the first section. The second section will consist of other fans. I thought it would be nice for Mariah to have a glimpse of who WE are and have our site addresses if she ever gets curious. =) So this is our chance to tell Mariah how we feel and explain to her why we decided to create our sites. Talk about your encounters and describe something special about your site. Have fun. I'm asking for not more than 3 paragraphs please. Please announce this on your site and let other webmasters know about it. E-mail entries to this address: mcmariposa@email.com Thanks a bunch!

    Italian Review, MC got booed!
    I couldn't believe when I read this following review from Danielle that MC got booed three times. I am guessing it is because she was an hour and a half late :O OMG, why was she so late? Also I thought it was sad that she cried during Petals. I know I am going to be crying at Petals/Hero/Mariah's Theme! Anyhow here is a brief review:
    Hi, I'm back! Mariah's concert was DA BOMB! There was a travistite (did I write this correct? hope you know what I mean) during X-girlfriend, she was throwing a big teddy bear during Crybaby, she played Bianca on a big screen (it was filmed), a choir during Make it happen, she sang TGIFY with Trey, she did her usual Fantasy (the mix with ODB) dance, during Sweetheart she plucked two guys from the audience to dance with her and her dancers, during Close my eyes, but especially during Petals she cried (!!), Mariah's theme blew me away, she was amazing (!), then there was a so-called fight between MC and Bianca. Mariah won off course. Waring a great sailors suit she sang Honey and after three minutes of waiting Mariah came back to sing Hero (some people thought that the concert was already finished...) That was the concert in HIGHlights. I missed out on one not so nice but important detail: Mariah was 1 1/2 (!!) hours late. She was booed three times...

    BELGIUM PICS!!!
    Ruud, man I love you, sent me two pics from the Belgium concert! The one is from the performance of Dreamlover, where she is in the green dress with the crown, and the other is from Petals, my all time favorite MC song :) Thank you so much to Ruud for sending them to me. Do you got pics? Do you got a review from Belgium or Italy's concert? What are you waiting for? SEND IT IN!!!!

    Bad Concert Review?
    I don't know what this tv show is talking about but from the things I heard SO FAR, cause not many people sent in reviews, I thought the concert sounds pretty awesome, and as a girl I KNOW I would enjoy it. It's kind of a sexiest comment too because if they were real fans of MC, why would they think that and I doubt that ALL the girls did not like the concert? Anyhow I am going to post this anyway and let you decide for yourself..
    Hi! I'm Desmond Choong from Malaysia. Today when I was watching Entertainment News from Taiwan's TVBS Asia televsion network, Mariah's concert in Belgium was one of the headlines. So I waited until the news on her concert was reported. It seemed that the female audiences (not sure whether they are Mariah fans or not) didn't like the show at all. The female audiences also complained that intervals between some songs were too long especially when Mariah had to change. Besides that, they also complained that she didn't sing well and her live performance wasn't good at all. They said they'd rather watch Celine Dion's concert. But on the other hand, the guys loved it, which is not an unusual phenomenon since I think the only thing they pay attention to is Mariah's body and good looks!! Hopefully not, though! But the best thing for me was being able to see her and some of the outfits. She looked incredible with a lime green long gown with Miss Understood and the crown!! I hope there won't be anymore complaints from audiences that aren't fans of hers.

    Italian Review?!?
    Evelyn, from MCDaydreams, told me that you can find an Italian Review from last nights concert and a cool 10 minute interview of MC. However I can't understand Italian, can anyone translate the review? Check out the link below!
    http://www.kwmusica.kataweb.it/kwmusica/news/sezione_new/1,4166,cover-1-4738 ,00.html

    InfoMC and NYC?
    Okay a couple of days ago I announced that maybe we could all meet up at a Pizza joint before the concert! However, it doesn't look like it will be that possible! However, I will hopefully be getting to NYC around 4 pm, 2 and a half hours before MSG opens, so maybe we can all meet outside and wait together for the doors to open? TRUST ME I already have the plan accomplished for how you will KNOW that it is me...ha ha! But that is a secret in which I will reveal the day before the concert! Also I am working on a poster at the moment, out of cardboard, that folds together and that I will slip in my pants and will go up in the back of my shirt..when you open it it wil say:
    InfoMC Loves Mariah! (won't say Loves, it will be a heart and I will make it big so hopefully MC can read it!)
    I was wondering if anyone else would like to make posters for the NYC concert for InfoMC and hold it in different locations saying something similiar, nice and big. I have a way of getting posters in and I somewhat mentioned it above because Security usually takes away posters! SO if anyone else has any ideas for how InfoMC could meet or something that we could do at MSG, let me know! We have 54 days to come up with something!!

    Germany/Spain/France Concerts!
    I have my best friend Anja, going to the Germany concert Sunday (she'll send me a detailed review on Monday with hopefully pics!) and my two good friends Meski and Minerva going to the Spain concert and Minerva going to the France one too. So hopefully they will give me a ton of reviews on it and I will have them all for you next week!

    February 17, 2000...
    Milan, Italy
    Tonight is the big night for Italian fans! Hopefully I will have a ton of reviews and maybe some pics tomorrow from newspapers or something?? Can we hope for that? PLEASE :D (hee hee!)

    Magazine News!
    I picked up Honey today with Lopez on the cover and there is a really nice little pic, as I reported earlier. I don't know if it is worth the $4 but hey I bought it and maybe I will scan it :) Also I picked up the March 2000 issue of Sister 2 Sister which has an article talking about MC's film career. Also it has a nice half page pic of MC from the #1's Party after the signing in 1999. I saw that MC was in the March 2000 issue of Entertainment Teen, but it's an old pic from the Blockbuster 1998 awards in the pinkish/peachish dress. There is a little pic of MC in the new Cosmo too, it's the March 200 issue I think? And finally I saw that there is a pic of MC in Word UP, March 2000. It's a pic from the Whitney benifit and it talks about how MC rewarded her fans for the Heartbreaker success by taking them with her to Oprah! That's the mag. news for today! Man that was a lot!

    Fan Book Update!
    Here is what I was told:

    MC in Playboy, OH MY!!!
    Yup you heard me right, but it's only a pic from the recent AMA's and it's in the March 2000 issue (not that I expect ANY of you to go buy it!) Gwtwsaga sent me the article in it!
    "A little bit of Mariah, Mariah Carey finished off the nineties with more than 100 million albums sold (including her recent album Rainbow), as well as roles in two movies, The Bachelor and Double O-Soul. But there's more to her than belly buttons and breaking records. Here's a peek at the rest".

    Valentine Presents?
    buterflyz@juno.com sent me the following article from her local newspaper!
    Long-distance lovebirds Mariah Carey and Luis Miguel exchanged gifts on Valentine's Day. She received roses. He got a steamy homemad video from the luscious Mariah. Carey, now in Belgium, is ridin' high these days. And not just with Luis. Tix for her Rainbow Tour sold out in 10 minutes in L.A., Boston, and New York. Miguel is in NYC, playing Radio City Music Hall.

    February 16, 2000...
    New Pics!
    There are five news pics in Gallery 22. One is from Jon, who sent me a tiny b/w pic of MC at Monday's Belgium Concert another is from HailQueenMariah from the local newspaper and the final three are courtesy of Mariah Carey Archives and Danny van Oosterbosch and are from the Belgium Concert also! Check out both scans...

    Mariah Rainbow Tour!
    So MANY people are flooding my mailbox asking me to PLEASE post on the website and in InfoMC about them getting tickets or selling tickets! There is just too many so my suggestion to you is to post your requests on the "Forum" on my page. Maybe someone will respond. If I had tickets, I would give them to you.

    Updated Official Site!
    MC left a REALLY nice message to us on her site. She was in her limo on the way to the airport while recording it going to the Belgium concert! She was thanking us for the #1 success of TGIFY! She said that out of all of her #1's, this means a lot, probably cause the song means so much to her! Everyone can now officially give themselves a pat on the back. Also if you are in the Official Fan Club, make sure you check the page tomorrow because Vicki is back. Thanks..

    Pics, News? Belgium Fans where are you?
    I am so upset that there are still not more reviews on the Belgium concert or pics! I am dying to read all about the concert from different people and there was thousands of people there but most of the reviews are in different languages. If you got a review, a scan of your newspaper, or any cool pics of MC from the Belgium concert PLEASE send them to me so I can get them up! Thanks :D

    Joan Doesn't Mean It!
    Joan has bashed MC at the Oscars and because of that MC went on a diet consisting of carrots and celery. Now Joan expresses how she doesn't mean it? (Yeah Right!)
    Rivers Says Jokes Not Mean Spirited
    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Plenty of celebrities have gotten their feelings hurt over Joan Rivers' caustic jokes. But the comedian denies that her wisecracks, which have targeted everyone from Mariah Carey to Willie Nelson, are mean-spirited. ``People say this and it hurts me so much,'' said Rivers. ``They say, 'You're so mean. And I say, 'Me? Why?' Because I say Elizabeth Taylor is fat. Everybody says that. They just remember me because I had the better jokes. ``I never want to hurt anyone. That's why I don't go after people in the audience. I only go after stars; I go after people who it doesn't matter one bit to.'' Rivers, known for her acerbic reviews of fashions at various awards shows, says stars who take her critiques seriously ``are idiots.'' Rivers' comments were published in Tuesday's editions of the News & Observer of Raleigh in advance of her lecture here Tuesday night. The comedian said she joined the lecture circuit about 2 1/2 years ago after audience members began asking her serious questions during live performances. ``I'd be in Vegas doing stand-up and someone would say, 'Can I ask you something?' And I'd say 'Sure.' And some woman would say 'My husband just killed himself. What should I do?''' Rivers' husband, Edgar Rosenberg, killed himself in 1987.

    Walter A. getting Producer of the Year!

    Record producer Walter Afanasieff isn't quite the Susan Lucci of the Grammy Awards. But Afanasieff -- best known for his work with Mariah Carey and for producing Celine Dion's smash hit ``My Heart Will Go On'' -- hopes that after several previous nominations, this finally will be the year he takes home the coveted Producer of the Year trophy....

    MTV?
    I finnaly saw the MTV Rainbow Commercial about the concert but Alan told me that MTV.com is offering tickets to some of the shows. He said he just saw a commercial on MTV. I know nothing more about this! Sorry!

    Black Dogs Name?
    I don't know who told me this, cause I lost his/her name in the untitled, but someone told me the little black dog that noone knew the name of is "Damash." Hmm..

    Getting Caught?
    Okay yesterday I asked in the newsletter and on this page whethre MSG has tight security because I want to take pics and record the concert onto a cassette which will be sold through InfoMC. However, two people came back with COMPLETLY different answers. I did get more answers towards the "they don't care" side but here is the reviews!
    Who is this from?
    I've been there before since I live right near there, in fact I was just there last month for the TLC concert and I can tell you there isn't that tight security. You basically just walk in and go to your seats, if you're carrying a big bag they'll make you open it and check what's inside but that's cuz they're checking for weapons and dangerous stuff like that, not for tape players. I'm sure you'll be fine with ur tape recorder.
    Brendon
    hey. msg has really tight security i had my camera and recorder taken away from me ata whitney houston concert and a i had my camera taken away at the beastie boys and jingle ball. they dont take that crap. u can hide it in your pants cause they frisk u hen u walk in, but if they see a flash they come to your seat and take it away and take your name so u can get it after the show. no flashes are allowed. but people do it anyway. i got some awesome pics of whitney. u just gotta be careful bout it.

    Nominees for the 14th Annual Soul Train Music Awards were announced last night by Montell Jordan and Tamia during a press conference at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, California.
    Aside from TLC, the nominees for the Soul Train awards were evenly divided among the ten categories, with seven artists including Mary J. Blige, Whitney Houston, Destiny's Child, and Donell Jones each receiving two nominations. DMX, Mariah Carey, Juvenile, and 20 other artists each picked up a single nomination.
    In addition to the competitive categories, organizers for this year's Soul Train Music Awards have announced that DMX and Mary J. Blige will both receive the Sammy Davis, Jr. Award for "Entertainer Of The Year," while Prince will be named "Artist Of The Decade."
    The 14th Annual Soul Train Music Awards will be handed out at a gala event scheduled for March 4 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, with Eric Benét, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, Tamia, and Shemar Moore set to co-host.
    The complete list of nominees for this year's Soul Train Music Awards:

    "Heartbreaker" - Mariah Carey featuring Jay-Z
    "My Love Is Your Love" - Whitney Houston
    "Chante's Got A Man" - Chante Moore
    Best R&B/Soul Single, Male

    Magazine News!
    Mariah is in three magazines hitting shelves Monday! Here is a rundown on all three:
    Feb 2000 issue of Allure.
    First, she is on page 44. It is a freeze from the Heartbreaker Remix video and it talks about the Gucci shorts that she is wearing. Next she is on page 97, and it has three little pics of her in a row talking about how she bends on knee, clasps her hands and wears revealing black outfits. (pics are from 1999 Essence Awards, 1997 MTV Awards and Puffy Party!) And lasty she is on page 109 about her hair. It's a pic from the 1998 Diva's Live Show! I think this is worth the $2.50 to buy!
    Mademoiselle, March 2000
    Mariah, of what I saw so far-didn't look through whole mag, is only on the last page. HOWEVER, she is on the entire back page. It is a pic of her and her little black dog, which noone knows the name of. We have all see this pic but it is a full size pic now. It is really nice, it talks about her Hair, Fresh air Fun, Luis Miguel, etc! Pick it up, the magazine is $2.99
    People Weekly-2/21/00!
    There is a nice pic on page 86 of MC. It is a whole body pic of MC from the 1999 Essence Awards. There is a little article discussing her tour and I will type it out for you :)
    Just days before her world tour-beginning in Belgium on Feb. 14-Mariah Carey decided she needed a slew of daring new costumes. Deploying an army of seamstresses, New York City designer Pamela Dennis threw together 12 outfits while L.A.'s David Cardona whipped up beaded hot pants, sexy tube dresses and a dazzling gold satin boxing robe emblazoned with Carey's initials..."
    SO it looks like MC will be wrestling with someone on the concert stage..man can't wait to see this..ha ha!

    MSG Security?
    Well I found out that have access to a tiny handheld recorder and I really want to tape MC's concert and convert it to cassette tape. However, I do not know if MSG has tight security and you walk through a security gate or they frisk ya or something. I don't want my recorder or my cameras taken away, so does anyone know anything about this? Also I encourage others to record the concerts and then maybe you can sell them in InfoMC, or do trades! Wouldn't that be cool? Have one or two cassettes for each of MC's concerts!

    New Mariah Project!
    Bryan is setting up something similiar to a fan book, a fan website where you can add your own personal touched too. Read below to see what I was sent!
    Hey Regina, I have just created a new Mariah project that i think Mariah would really love. I have created a BLANK web site and I am leaving it up to ALL Mariah fans to build together as a team. After the site is completely finished, the goal is to somehow get Mariah to see it. Hopefully, its a BIG hit like the Fan Books. Please mention it on your site and you can also see what im talkin about by going to my site http://come.to/mariahsrainbow and the URL for the Mariah fan site is going to be
    http://www.angelfire.com/music/mariahfans.index.html I have JUST created this and i would really appreciate your help in getting this advertised. If you can think of an easier setup than what it is now, PLEASE help it to become more organized. I really appreciate it. I hope its a success. =)

    3 Days in Counting!
    We are three days away from the kick off performance of Mariah's World Tour. If you are going to the concert in Belgium, please send me pics, reviews, etc. Also note that NONE of the reviews will be posted here in the NEWS section. The "Forum" will be getting all the post so hopefully that will get people to actually go and use that on this site. Also we are three days away from the On Sale Date of MSG Tickets and Valentines Day :) Does everyone have their "Sweetheart?" Cause I don't :(

    News from Ron!
    This is Ron from the Philippines. THANK GOD I FOUND YOU (Single) is now released in the Philippines. I just purchased my copy. Please post this to let other Filipino Mariah fans know about this good news. The cover is the one in the remix video and the tracks are the Make It Last Remixes.

    Jay Z's New Video!
    Tom told me that yesterday on BET they showed Jay-Z's new video. It wasn't "The Things You Do" with Mariah. Meaning the rumors that MC and Jay-Z are the next single was another lie I guess?

    MC on Trivia Question
    Gary told me the day after MC was on Regis & Kathie Lee, MC was the trivia question. The question was Where is Mariah starting her world tour? The caller wasn't a MC fan though cause he or she got it wrong :(

    MC in PRIDE Magazine!
    Bugscreens told me that MC is in the January 2000 issue of PRIDE magazine, with T-Boz on the cover. It can be found in the US, but it is not easily found. The title says, "Mariah's Men-From 'Virgin to Vamp!'" I was told the title may sound harsh but the article is nice. There are a few pics inside, one being a new one, so I am told. Anyone got the scans? Pretty please :D

    World Tour Commercial!
    Dan told me that MTV is now running a commercial about the Rainbow Tour. It has a split screen. One side has a list of the tour dates while the other side shows scenes from the Homecoming Special!

    Can't Get Valentine CD? Good News!

    February 10, 2000..SPECIAL NEWS!
    InfoMC going to NYC Concert!
    I just won 2 tickets for the first 10-20 rows at MSG for April 11th. That means that InfoMC is going to the concert. We are thinking about creating a contest for fans who are not going to the concert to win a tour book, t-shirt, poster or other fan stuff from the Rainbow Concert. Nothing is certain yet but make sure you sign up for InfoMC because you don't want to miss out on this offer and other possible offers coming soon! Look for them within the next 2 weeks possibly!

    February 10, 2000..

    Access Hollyoood
    Sara told me that MC was on Access Hollywood last night but she didn't tell me info. on it. I missed it sadly so if anyone got th 411, I would appreciate it :) Alan told me that MC was on Access Hollywood two days ago besides the Access Moment..here is what I was told:
    ...they sowed her with her new dog "aspen" and you see all these kids eating with her and then signing for them. mariah was saying how important it is for kids to have homes and then she said that is she ever wanted kids, she would take care of them instead of going around the world

    Access 2
    If you ever see MC on TV on Access Hollywood or ET, please inform me ASAP and don't assume that I saw it cause usually I rely on Alex to tell me if she is on and he doesn't watch it everynight. Hee hee..thanks much :)

    Jess:
    Today Mariah was on the radio station Hot 97. I was listening to my walkman in chem class and I heard them interviewing her, then they played the Thank God I Found You remix (it's a rap/r&b station) then they interviewed her some more. She had Guam with her again and they were talking about Guam (the dog), the Thank God I Found You single and the National Adoption Center and how profits are going there, etc., Luis, her tour, and some other stuff I couldnt hear that well (cuz of some funny stuff that happened in class, long story). Also, she was on the welcome screen on AOL yesterday (incase u missed it ) and they had 8 pics of her at rollingstone.com, they were rolling stone pics, AMA pics, pics from her concert in Hawaii (I saw it on Mariah Around the World), and pics from the Thank God I Found You photo shoot. That's all for now :)

    Rosie in Realvideo
    Sweet Carisa has a ton of new realvideos on her site from the Regis & Kathie Lee Show and the Rosie Show. You can check them out by clicking the link below. Also I begged Carissa to make some screen captures from Rosie and she MIGHT try this weekend, so everyone keep your fingers crossed..hee hee :) (Did I add the right pressure Carisa? HA HA!)

    NOTE:
    PLEASE do not go into my galleries, save a picture and then send it to another webmaster or webmistress, without saying WHERE you got it from and claiming it as your own. It messes up the webmaster and plus it is just plain old wrong. Save them as your personal files, fine. But PLEASE do not claim to have scanned something when you havn't.

    MC on Regis and Rosie!
    My Opinions:
    I thought Regis and Kathie Lee was okay! I thought MC looked really pretty but I was kind of hoping she would be performing there too, I know expecting too much! Her dogs were SO CUTE! However, I REALLY loved the Rosie show! MC perfromed my favorite track on Rainbow, Petals with the Rainbow Interlude at the end! Then her and Rosie goofed off and talked for two sessions. It was AWESOME! It seems like she was on there so long. I really hope everyone saw it! :)

    Pics!
    If ANYONE does captures of the Rosie and Regis show, please send them to me. MC did some funny stuff and I would love to have a pic or two from Rosie as the Quote Pic, cause as you all know, I like to have funny pics there :)

    Articles from UK!
    Kirsty sent me some articles from UK magazines:
    OK:
    3 pics in this magazine. The first is an small article, and the other two are small pictures advertsisng her Capital gold radio interview. The articles are as follows.
    It seems that Mariah Carey is fed up of spilling out of almost every dress she wears Rather than move up a size, however she's cutting back on her food intake, during a recent interview with rolling stone magazine, the singer turned down a substantial meal and restricted herself to carrots and celery. It seems to have worked because at a later photoshoot Mariah had visibily lost a shed load of weight and was looking less curvaceous. The real reason for the weight loss however seems to be Joan Rivers, the singer was upset when at last years oscars Joan remarked that Mariah was getting rather fulsome, and she decided to slim down. If she's using Joan Rivers as a role model, this time next year she'll be a walking exray.
    2ND article
    Mariah Carey has gone from budding soul diva to one of the last decades most successfull performers. With her latest single "thank god I found you" about to be released, british fans will get to hear her first hand when she plays a rare one off concert in London this month. Before that she dropped ito capital gold to talk to OK on air about her music and private life. ( Pretty picture of Mariah in a black tp and sereal pink lipstick )
    3RD article
    Todays show includes an exclusive meeting with Mariah Carey flushed with the sucess of winning the prestigeous American Music Award of acheivement earlier this month.

    Rosie Old, Regis New?
    Kristen told me that the last Rosie show, MC came out and then Susan Lucci came out. While checking clicktv.com it shows the following listings for Rosie...
    Rosie O'Donnell
    Type: Talk Show
    Duration: 1 hr
    Description: Scheduled: singer Mariah Carey, actress Susan Lucci. Parental Rating: TV-G
    Airing: Tue 2/8/00 10:00am 6 WPVI Remind Me
    SO, Kristen believes that this is a repeat of MC that already aired a while back from the ISB single. I don't know if it this is true, but it would be strange to have Lucci and MC on the same show again? Also noone e-mailed me about Regis and Kathie Lee, so my guess would be that it is a new show. The Official Fan Page lists MC on Regis and Rosie too, so my suggestion for all this is just to tape both shows and we will see what happens on Tuesday :D

    MC in Jet!
    Will told me that MC is in the Feb 7th issue of JET magazine. There is a pic of her on Page 60 from the AMA's. Here is what it says!
    Mariah Carey received a special Award of Achievement for her phenomenal success in the 1990s. She turned heads as she carefully took the stage in a sexy dress that revealed too much. She modeled it for reporters saying, "It's a little ensemble, little being the operative word."

    Blockbuster Entertainment Awards!
    Will also told me that starting Tuesday, Feb 8th, you can pick up your ballots at your local Blockbuster to start voting MC in the 2000 Blockbuster Entertainment Awards. She always wins this, so please vote for her :) She needs our help! It ends Feb 20th!

    Acting Quote!
    SilentFaery sent me a quote of MC talking about how acting is important to her!
    "It's very important to me, more than career-wise, in terms of my growth as a human being and as an artist. It's helped me in terms of studying… it's really really helped me become a much freer individual because before I was very blocked and very just uptight and nervous and just not dealing with a lot of the realities in my life and so studying acting has helped me a lot with that."

    News from Alan!
    It seems that MC was on Z100 yesterday and Alan told me this..
    mariah was on Z100 doing another interview yet again but i didnt hear much cuz i was on the subway and then when she came on, the signla was lost all i heard was them discussing the rolling stone article and whole vomiting isnt true and then they gave away FRONT ROW msg tix maybe other ppl heard it 2...
    Also he told me that if you are in the Official Fan Club, there are still available tickets for the first 10-20 rows at the Chicago and Atlanta shows. Remember, you must be a member to get this special article and visit the MCFC Fans Only Member Page for more info!

    Scope Magazine
    Pick up this High School paper if you get it..thanks to DebCox Fan for this following bit..
    ok well there is this magazine that they get at our school called Scope and there were 2 pages about Mariah w/ 2 pics. One old pic from like '94 (it's on one of the Xmas singles) & one resent. It told all about how she grew up & stuff. If ya are still in high school... they might have it. Well, my English teacher, who knows I love Mariah (who doesn't!?!? LOL) made the whole class read the article and no one really knew what Mariah's life was like until after reading that and one girl said "I guess I have a lot more respect for her now" which was cool =D

    New York Daily News Article!
    Nini sent me the following article and click the link at the end to see a nice pic of MC :)
    Spanish Becoming Mariah's Language of Love
    The things Mariah Carey does for love. The pop superstar is getting a crash course in Spanish for the sake of her boyfriend, Mexican singer Luis Miguel.
    "Mariah wants to understand Luis' language, as well as his culture," says Carey's rep, Cindi Berger. "They're together a lot in Acapulco, and that's why she wants to learn Spanish."
    Music journalist Anne Raso tipped me off that Carey needed to become better versed in Spanish because she wanted to record a duet with Miguel. Berger says a Carey-Miguel recording could happen, but there are no specific plans for it.
    "They enjoy singing together," Berger says. "But for now it's only when they're alone, in private."
    Carey is about get very public. Her worldwide tour begins Valentine's Day in Antwerp, Belgium. Her first U.S. stop will be in Los Angeles on March 16. Carey's New York date, if you want to pencil it in, will be April 11, at Madison Square Garden.
    Berger is unsure whether Carey's Spanish instructor from the Berlitz school will accompany her on the road, but it's a possibility.
    And a good idea, too, especially if she wants to say, "Call the limo," in Spanish.

    MC on Regis and Kathie Lee and Rosie?
    Clicktv.com has juts updated their site and it has MC listed for the Regis and Kathie Lee show at 9 am on ABC for Feb 8th. PLUS it has MC listed for the Rosie O'Donnell show at 10 am on ABC. It is possible for MC to be on both shows. I know for sure that the Rosie one is new but I am not possitive that Regis is new. I did some researching though and first of all here is the listing for the show!
    Live -- Regis & Kathie Lee
    Type: Talk Show
    Duration: 1 hr
    Description: Scheduled: singer Mariah Carey; cyclist Lance Armstrong discusses the "Cycle of Hope" campaign for cancer education.
    Parental Rating: TV-G
    Airing: Tue 2/8/00 9:00am 6 WPVI Remind Me
    NOW let me know if I am wrong but on the last Regis Show it was a Y2K special and it was Kathie's singing partner, NO cyclist named Armstrong. Unless they show the old clip, which would be so lame cause she is talking about the TV Special. SO I believe that this Regis and Kathie Lee Show is NEW! If anyone has any more info. on this, e-mail me ASAP and I will let you all know tomorrow if it is!!

    MC singing at Miss USA Pageant?
    I don't know who sent me this but someone said that MC will be performing at this event on CBS from 9-10:30 pm. I havn't heard anything nor was there any articles but I'll tune into it tonight and let you know tomorrow!

    5 Magazines!
    I picked up 5 new magazines today on MC. Check out "Magazines" for the full list. She is in the Feb 15th issues of National Enquirer and the Star. The Enquirer has 4 pics which Entertainment Tonight talked about the other night. Basically they discuss her jeans fads and there is a wonderful new pic of MC in there. The Star features a pic of Joe and MC kissing but you can barely tell it is MC cause you can't see her face. Mariah is in the $1 issue of J-14 magazine (March 2000) like 5 times, so you HAVE to get this one! She is also in Teen People 3 times, which we all know but it is the March 2000 issue! And lastly, she is in the April 2000 issue of Right On! magazine with a BEAUTIFUL picture of her from the 1999 MTV Europe Awards! Go pick up your mags today!

    Inside Track article from Boston Hearald!
    Many thanks to Jon for this next article!
    "On The Run For Mariah"
    Then there's Magic 106.7''s Candy O'Terry, who had an interview all set up yesterday with pop diva Mariah Carey for her "Exceptional Women" series. Except that when Mariah called Candy, she wound up in the station's voice-mail hell! "She got transferred from one phone to another, to another and finally wound up in the computer room," O'Terry told the track. Well, by that time Mariah- and her publicist- were really wound up. Station salesgal Heidi Strasnick answered the phone. "I said 'hello,'" said Strasnick, "and I hear this woman yelling, "Who's this!' I have Mariah Carey on the line and if Candy O'Terry doesn't pick up in one minute, we're hanging up!" So with that, Strasnick did a 100-yard dash through the station, located Candy, and hooked up the two gals, who proceeded to have a lovely little chin wag. "When I finally got her, Mariah could not have been nicer," O'Terry saud. Meanwhile, look for Ms. Heartbreaker to make an appearance at the FleetCenter sometime this spring.

    And this one was the last page of the magazine: Charts.
    BillBoard''s Top 50 Albums 9.9 Mariah Carey, Rainbow 9
    ***For a singer with such an impressive vocal range, Mariah Carey used to display a narrow understanding of her musical milieu. But with the hip-hop-lite makeover she initiated on the Ol' Dirty Bastard remix of "Fantasy" and continued on 1997's Butterfly, Carey traded a diva's timelessness for youthful relevance. She expands on that lesson with Rainbow. Her emotional stiffness is still evident, but the gamut of modern urban sounds and moods brought to these fourteen tracks by various guest vocalists and producers makes Rianbow a sterling chroncicle of the state of accessible hip-hop balladeering at the close of 1999. --Arion Berger, RS 826

    February 3, 2000..
    TGIFY #2 not #1!
    Steven told me that MC is #1 on the air play but Anderz told me that only counts for 25%. Savage Garden has her beat on the radio play, which is really upsetting. I was so excited when Steve told me she was #1. PLEASE request her on your radio station and buy the singles. I just bought 4 cassette tapes and one single today to hopefully help out with sales. We want MC at #1. Also to see a complete listings of Radio Stations, visit Anderz Site!! Here is the standings of TGIFY straight from Anderz himself!
    #1 - TOP EXTENDED SINGLES (12",MAX) (SoundScan)
    #1 - TOP SINGLES (SoundScan)
    #2 - R&B SINGLES CORE STORES (SoundScan)
    #2 - YTD MAXI-SINGLES (SoundScan)
    #7 - YTD SINGLES (SoundScan)
    #12 - YTD NON MAXI-SINGLES (SoundScan)
    YTD means from the start of the year, so TGIFY is already the #2 selling maxisingle in year 2000 so far. I wish Sony would write the airplay on their site as well. Lastly, Mariah might have broken a record. She has had a #2 single every year the past 11 years

    New Pics!
    Anja sent me 2 AWESOME pics of Mariah, I especially love the one where she is singing from the Butterfly Tour, and I also got the new Hello pics from the awesome German Site by K. Uwe Langer but I don't remember where the other 3 pics are from? Check out all 9 pics in Gallery 21!

    News on MC on TRL and more!
    Diana and several other people told me about MC being on TRL on Tuesday and Wednesday and here is more info. on it..
    Katie!
    hey regina. in your last letter you had asked if anyone knew about Mariah being on TRL and MTV news? Well i watched TRL yesterday and her video "Thank God I Found You" was at the number 10 spot! Go Mariah!! As for the news they were mentioning news about her tour...and that's about it! Hope i cleared up some things for you..keep the good news coming...bye!!
    Lillian
    mariah was on trl yesterday. TGIFY was #10, and they had a clip of her from when she announced her world tour in Beverly Hills, CA, but this time she was talking about Luis Miguel and how he understands her life because his life is very identical to hers. what she said exactly was:
    Kurt Loder: singer mariah carey, whom you just saw will be launching her first tour in 7 years, sponsored by MTV and tickets for the first show in Los Angeles on March 16 and another date in Atlanta on April 1 will go on sale this weekend or many dates will go on sale next weekend. Fans can check in with MTV.COM for details. Chris Connely talked to Carey about the upcoming tour and she said she's not nervous about it, maybe because it's only 9 dates long, but also, she noted, because of the presence of her current boyfriend, international Latin pop star, Luis Miguel, makes everything in her life just a little easier to deal with.
    MC: I think feeling like you're supported, in terms of someone that really cares about you for you, as opposed to, you know, just maybe, wanting to control you or caring about you because ... the image of what you are, you know or um, to manipulate you for whatever their own reasons are. I think someone that does what you do and comes from the standpoint of being an artist, um, is in a better position to make you feel unconditionally cared for. THE END.

    Ticket News!
    Alan told me that tickets for Atlanta show are now on sale at Ticketmaster's site and my good bud Brianne told me that they are also up for LA.

    MC being called names on Radio show!
    Jennifer sent me something very upsetting and would like all your help in getting this "complete and total mess" straightened out!
    Hi Regina, (Please publish this in the newsletter) I just want to ask all my Mariah fans to help me with something. This morning I was listening to an LA radio statio STAR 98.7, and the morning show person mentioned something abaout Mariah. Jamie from the Jamie and Danny morning show said," I always knew Mariah Carey was a bitch! She threw a fit because a reporter threw up on her. C' mon, Mariah is just an annoying bitch!" Then she went on to tell about the time she needed kittens and dogs to play with, and how she needed people to cheer for her when MTV had to gather up cheering spectators. She also mentioned the time Mariah refused to walk up stairs. Jamie was being completely rude to Mariah and kept calling her stuck up and a bitch. I really did not appreciate this at all and sent her an e-mail, stating how I felt. I would appreciate it if everybody went to the radio station site at www.star987.com, radio personnels, then Jamie and Danny. Click on Jamie, and you can send her a personal e-mail telling her how rude she was. Don't worry about being rude to her yourself, because she is very vulgar, like Howard Stern. This is a very popular morning show here in LA, and I would appreciate it if all the wonderful Mariah fans would help me out. It only takes a few minutes, but it would mean a big difference. Thanks for your support!

    Regina is Set Straight!
    StormyBliss told me that Rosie was not mean to Mariah on yesterdays show and that I reported false information (man twice in one week, maybe I should throw my bags in and quit?) Anyhow, read this..
    Actually she didn't EXACTLY say that, Rosie told Mandy to promise that she would not wear a Britney Spears/Mariah Carey tube top band-aid thing. Then she went on to say that she loved Mandy because she was smart and she wasn't going to dress trampy. Then she realized what she said and corrected herself by saying, Britney and MC are not tramps, their clothes are just a little too risque

    Minerva Tells me about Hello!
    Minerva told me that MC is in this weeks English edition of "Hello" magazine. There is a 3 page article called, "Award-winning, top-selling singer Mariah Carey Why she's only just learnt how to have fun in life." I have 4 of the pics in Gallery 21 but places that carry foreign magazine might have this magazine in the USA! Check your local bookstores and cd stores!

    No record broken!
    Wow I got some nasty e-mails from MC fans on the news that Backstreet Boys beat MC's record. I didn't research it, I just reported what I was told, which I understand was my fault. But, I make mistakes and please remember that! Thank you for setting me straigh and it turns out that Backstreet Boys havn't even had a single #1. The highest they came was #2 because they focus mainly on album sales!

    MC ON ROSIE!!!
    You heard it here first gang, clicktv.com now listed MC as being on Rosie on Feb 8th. Here is what was said on Rosie's site! Many thanks to MariahRcks

    Tv Y Notas article!
    Nini found the TV Notas magazine, which is the Jan 25th issue and typed out the article for me..wasn't that nice of her? Here it is!
    Mariah and Luis Bungee Jump
    Acapulco, Guerrero- Who ever decided to travel to the Paradise last weekend never imagined that they would find Mariah and Luis Miguel having dinner, signing autographs and entertaining themselves by bungee jumping.
    It Was A Night of Surprises
    Like every weekend, the clubs and bars were crowded with many tourists and teens. Friday in the Paradise restaurant and bar Luis and Mariah discovered the bungee jump. To everyone’s surprise Luis and his famous girlfriend arrived at 10 p.m. with six bodyguards and sat at the best table, where everyone could see them. After saying hello to dozens of people they went on to eat dinner, drink white wine and tequila.
    He’s unrecognizable
    After dinner, the people yelled for the couple and asked for autographs. It was Mariah who decided to sign the books, T-shirts, and papers. Right after Mariah signed them she brought them over to Luis so he could also sign them. Meanwhile the bodyguards prohibited the fans to take pictures. The Mexican singer smiled and blew kisses to the crowd while chatting with friends. At the end, he was unrecognizable.
    She had to do it!
    Following the tequila, Mariah insisted that her love bungee jump, but he refused by smiling and shaking his head at her. Mariah decided to jump, but only after midnight. She called for a fourteen-year-old boy and asked him if he would jump a couple of times, so Luis could see it wasn’t a big deal. The boy jumped, but Luis still didn’t want to do it. He finally decided to go for it, but only after Mariah jumped. Even though Mariah wasn’t dressed for bungee jumping, she quickly changed into a white bikini and t-shirt. Accompanied by an instructor Mariah experimented how it would feel to fall fifty feet, and then jumped twice.
    He was scared
    Mariah showed Luis that bungee jumping was fun. He then was determined to show Mariah he could do it. Luis went on to jump without thinking twice. The bodyguards forbade anyone to take pictures. With his red face and nervous smile Luis did as Mariah asked. Mariah applauded for him and smiled. Around 1:30 a.m. the lovebirds returned to their yacht where it would take them to Mexico.

    Macy and MC make up!
    I don't remember if I reported this article before but I know it is not so long ago that it was published. Thanks to Mella MT for this :)
    Despite Macy Gray's recent insistence that she 'could take Mariah Carey in a fight', it seems the US rivals have kissed and made-up. According to a dotmusic source, the Calvin Klein model will support Mariah on the opening night of her 'Rainbow Tour' in Belgium. The show, on February 14, takes place at the 'Sportpaleis' in Antwerp and is part of Mariah's first tour in eight years. Last year, Macy insisted: 'I'd love to punch Mariah Carey. She gets on my nerves when I see those videos of hers. I'm six ft tall, so I think I could take her in a fight.'

    Q102 News from Dan:
    Last night (Sunday) I was listening to the Rhythm Top 30 Countdown (on Q102, but I think it's from Las Vegas and nationwide or something), and Heartbreaker was #19.

    MC Record Broke by Backstreet Boys!
    SweetheartMC Fan told me that Mariah was the last artist to have 3 number one hits off of one album (Daydream), but now the Backstreet Boys have done it with 3 #1s off of Millennium. How sad :( I guess records are meant to be broken though!

    RollingStone Article!
    Dan sent me the following article which might be in the actual rolling stone magazine!
    As soon as MARIAH CAREY wraps up her first full-blown tour since 1993, she's heading to the big screen. Carey has studied acting since she was a small child, and for the past two-and-a-half years has pursued it with a vengeance with a renowned New York acting coach. Well, all that hard work has paid off, because she's set to star in All That Glitters, a story of a flamboyant Eighties singer, written by Kate Lanier (Mod Squad, What's Love Got to Do With It). Carey will contribute six songs to the soundtrack, including her recent No. 1, "Heartbreaker." Filming is due to begin at the end of April, shortly after she hits her last high notes at Madison Square Garden on the 11th...

    MC in Paper Magazine!
    Taryn told me that Mariah is in Paper Magazine with Jude Law on the Cover. It says, " Mariah Selling Dresses!
    CAT sent me the following Link:

    It takes you to E! Online and it has a nice pic of MC from the AMA's 2000. Also it has an article saying that after MC wore this dress, it sold out. I copied and pasted the article below! Thanks CAT!

    We used to wonder how Mariah Carey hit all those high notes. But after seeing the diva display her, uh, wares at the American Music Awards, we're wondering how she keeps everything in place with that skimpy Celine bikini top. "Gravity," say the folks at Celine. "You just have to have the body and the security and the guts to wear it." Get used to the look. Celine's so-called "Goddess dresses" sold out completely after Mariah's showing.

    MC mentioned in Making the Video!
    DitzEgurl5 told me the following!
    I was watching Making the video with Mandy Moore and at the end they were telling what was next on making the video,and No Doubt is on next time and Gwen Stefani was telling Mtv,that in the video she ''beats up" the boys in her band.She said something like "I just hope I can do this better than Mariah beating herself up" and the video is called "ex-girlfriend" but I'm not sure if they spell the same way Mariah does "x-girlfriend" or "ex-girlfriend"

    More News from Q! Magazine!
    The critics speak
    Mariah Carey found herself splattered with vomit on Friday after a journalist threw up on the diva. According to Q Magazine, Carey was being interviewed in her limousine by John McKie, an editor with the English teenybopper magazine, Smash Hits.
    McKie was apparently feeling ill, and not because he had the duration of a car journey in order to pick Carey's brains. The journalist was severely hungover from a wild night on Thursday. After travelling over several speed bumps, McKie asked the driver to pull over.
    In a scene familiar to alcoholic music journalists the world over, McKie didn't quite escape the car in time. Instead, he emptied the contents of his stomach on the multi-platinum-selling superstar's designer shoes.
    Carey, needless to say, was not pleased. She quickly ordered another car to take her to the television studio where she was due to be interviewed by another, more sober journalist. An assistant quickly wiped her shoes free of the regurgitated detritus. Reports say that it was clear from the effluvia that McKie had eaten carrots.
    Like McKie's meal, the incident will not have gone down well with the exacting diva. On a trip to London's MTV studios last year, Carey refused to perform unless kittens and dogs were supplied for her to frolic with. According to Q Magazine, Carey also refused to go to one studio because "she didn't want to walk up the stairs." It was also necessary to supply a large crowd to give the diva a rousing welcome upon her arrival. According to Q's source, "Everyone at MTV was made to go outside and people from Carey's record company were desperately rounding up anyone who happened to be walking past."
    Carey is currently in Europe prepping for her world tour and promoting her forthcoming film All That Glitters. Last weekend she discussed the contents of the soundtrack. "I was working with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis again," Carey said of the new songs. "I'm going to be singing six songs in the soundtrack. My character is in a girls group. She's not the lead singer. I actually also spent a brief few minutes with the Artist formerly known as Prince discussing the soundtrack, and he was giving me some possible things to work on and to write, too. I've been a fan of his forever and it was a great experience."
    Carey will no doubt be looking forward to returning to the United States, where the only danger posed to a diva is if Jay-Z or Puff Daddy go to the same club.

    Jay-Z's New Single!
    Many thanks to Mariah Online! for this next piece of information. It seems that CDNow has listed the Vinyl single of "Things That U Do" by Jay-Z which features Mariah as being released on Feb 15th. So I am guessing that this is Jay-Z's new single meaning that a video is sure to come with it!
