Let's Make it #1

Before They Were Rock Stars: Season Premiere
It's an all-new Before They Were Rock Stars which still brings you back to that time but with a few fresh twists. The show features its usual collection of kiddie photos, high school portraits and rare footage of early performances, but now the artists themselves -- along with some friends and acquaintances from the past -- are getting into the act. Features clips on Stevie Nicks, Scott Stapp of Creed, Train, John Bon Jovi, Macy Gray, Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey and more. (Premieres June 30th from 9-9:30)  

Glitter Soundtrack Cover???
Remember earlier in the month how People magazine had the following article about the cover shoot for the Glitter soundtrack:

            Primping to shoot the CD cover of her upcoming "All That Glitters" soundtrack, Mariah Carey was going for a biker-chic look. So the star flipped when her stylist pulled out a photo of the perfect accessory: A $12,000 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-12R motorcycle that Noir accessories designer Leeora Catalan had customized with more than 50,000 Swarovski crystals. Carey simply had to have the haute hog pronto and requested that it be flown in from New York to L.A. Alas, the Hell's Angels wannabe could only pose for still shots on her dream machine. Catalan, not wanting the cycle ridden, kept the keys....
The question is now, is the picture to the right, the Glitter Soundtrack cover or just another promotional picture? Who knows but thanks to Alan for this image, taken from the France Glitter Presskit!

Glitter Trailor on Crazy/Beautiful
John told me that where he works, Hoyts Cinema in Hyannis MA, they are now playing the Glitter trailor on the movie Crazy/Beautiful.

    MOTTOLA TARNISHES CAREY'S GLITTER?
    Just because Mariah left Sony, doesn't mean she's left behind her bad blood with Tommy Mottola. The New York Daily News has reported that Mariah Carey is considering suing her ex-husband and Sony Kingpin, Tommy Mottola. The concern is that Mottola may be conducting some industry whispering and supposedly calling her new movie and album "disappointing", along with rumouring a rivalry with Janet Jackson. Mariah's accusations of Tommy badmouthing go way back to when they were married. She is said to have thought he planted bad press a day after they would fight. It is rumoured that Carey and Mottola are forbidden to publicly scathe each other under the same deal that released the singer from her Sony contract. Interesting small print…By the way, she just performed for Bill Clinton…by that we mean singing songs.

    Pica y se Extiende
    Gabe translated a 2-3 segment that Pica y se Extiende did on Mariah and Luis.

    One of the artists who has really gotten the attention of the media and the public is Latin superstar Luis Miguel. Many years ago, it was rare to see him in a tabloid, or in a magazine that did not have anything to do with promoting albums. Here is a clip of him dancing at a night club, hanging out with buddies and with actress girlfriend Monserrat. [they played a clip] This footage is considered to be a treasure because Luis, is hardly in the public eye. We once caught him in new york city with his ex-girlfriend Daisy Fuentes, walking down, with a bodyguard by his side. It was rare to catch him in situations. But now all that has changed, now with his beautiful new love Mariah Carey, he is proud to show her off, and is now all over the tabloids. The most recent place where our cameras caught up with him and Mariah was in la mother land of Spain. Here we se a very happy Luis, who is not afraid to kiss, or show his affection to Mariah in front of the cameras. [while showing a clip of Luis and Mariah on the boat in Spain kissing with their hands all over each other (not literally)]. Mariah has certainly achieved what no other woman has, to share the love of Luis Miguel with her and the rest of the world. Now Luis can be seen happy with Mariah, which is good promotion for Mariah in Latin countries and also for Luis in the United States, where Mariah is huge. So it finally seems that Luis has found true happiness.. yadi yadi ya!

    It demonstrated to Mariah its talent
    Mariah Carey this not contemplating to marry with Luis Miguel like one of her priorities, since one is satisfied completely with her relation, their new company record and its new film.

    The happiness that enjoys dedicating itself completely to the musica, to the cinema and to the man that she loves, is the reasons by that Mariah Carey does not contemplate the marriage between its priorities, and if, to demonstrate that she is a full woman of talent.

    With his recent disc Glitter - of film that she herself carries out -, the support of its new company Virgin, and the intense romance who lives with Luis Miguel, the neoyorkina singer feels totally satisfied.

    " (the marriage) it is a very important decision, but I do not see it like an institution because (been to have married) it has embosomed to me to continue learning of the life... at the moment not I consider it necessary because I have enjoyed and I continue enjoying my happiness ", Mariah express by phone from New York.

    What wants to continue doing, is to demonstrate to the people who are a lady of the industry with qualities to emphasize, which, endorse after of years of race.

    To move away the triviality concept that many people have of my, but definitively, I believe that the bad commentaries are of negative minds and that not it take much into account ".

    With but 100 million discs sold in the world and several Grammy prizes in its collection of trophies, Mariah has enjoyed the prestige that the work like composer has given him to its voice and and producer that has done with subjects like como "Hero", "Honey", "Any Time You Need a Friend" y "Emotions".

    " I have tried to incorporate the concept to be optimistic, with the hope of the triumph, within my musica and Always want that that listens to it it is with a good flavor of mouth and it is amused ", express the ex- wife of Tommy Mottola.

    " Loverboy " is the simple one of soundtrack of Glitter, it films that will released in November and in that Mariah interprets Billie, an aspiring to star of the musica that becomes jumbled sentimentally with an executive of a company record.

    " I fall in love with the performance and I put myself to work in the album, that is something that moves much to me, i love that the people, when they saw me in the screen, simultaneamente vibrated with which sees and with which it listens.

    The record was a challenge because it to have written for one film in which the ballads have as much importance to the ritmicos sounds, detail interprets it of " Emotions ".

    " There are very ritmicas songs because the argument this located in 1982 and what we looked for was to give a variety , for that reason when you see it, you are going away to give account that the ballads are adapted for which listening because they approach some anecdota of films ", I point the singer been born the 27 of March of 1970.

    Also, novel actress finishes filming Wise Girls with Mira Sorvino, in which it incarnates to a woman of the Mafia and that between loving enredosos, comics and on action, it lives countless adventures in " the Big Apple ".

    " What I do it is to express itself as I am, I am always wanted to seem to one girl amusing itself with which it does, but the performance has helped me like person to know me . Never I have let write because to create songs it is like a backwater or a refuge for all my feelings ",

    Smiling and Accessible, the fiancee of Luis Miguel explain that the fame for her is a moved away privilege of the fame or glamour of a star, since its life always focuses it to the creative concept and her personal profits.

    " Nobody nothing has given me, I do not understand much the concept of the interests of the industry because my it attracts to me to continue doing new things... If your you knew that truely what me it makes happy is to walk in skids, to jump in the sea and to amuse to me with which I have, to leave to give the return with my dog ", she said.

    Considered like " the Diva of the Pop " and eternal rival of Madonna, Janet Jackson, Celine Dion and Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey celebrates what has with a smile and affirms that she is a fervent believer of God and he´s power.

    I´m a very spiritual person, definitively I believe in God and in that it has given a very great gift me in the life, the inspiration and the opportunity to make my work. In many occasions few people value it, but it is a blessing when one realizes that this healthy one, that has work... ", she talk.

    Their beliefs, are part of their source of inspiration. " For my the faith is the confidence, to think about that everything goes by the correct way, because if you have a positive thought and are people who deal with afectarte with negative attitudes, the faith is the one that saves to you, the one that takes move away to you from ' ' diablillos' ' that make the rounds by ahi ", precise Mariah.

    Its main goal, is to stay like a centered person and that values the life, taking into account that is people who love her and that worry about her.

    Mariah... in phrases
    "I have generally been very happy because I have everything what I want "

    " You know because i love México, but also I am been thankful with fans that I have here "

    " the best experience than I have had in my race is when they said that to tapeworm a very good voice to me to sing "

    " the fame makes means, my style of life does not change and I continue myself amusing so much as when chiquilla was one

    "I do not like to speak espanol because hatred my accent... I have learned that the people of Mexico are very warm, full of energia and also they have to me counted that are illusion sites "

    I always look for to be related or to connect itself with creative people or very good sense of humor, that I admire of a human being "

    " I have discovered that the important thing is not to be perfect, because that never was, and much less dream without putting hands to the work, but obeying to my necessities and to give to me to which I am and what I can give "

    Clinton celebrates music in school
    NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Bill Clinton joined pop singers Mariah Carey and India.Arie at an elementary school to celebrate the restoration of instrumental music classes. The cable channel VH1, through its Save The Music Foundation, and Cablevision, donated about 750 musical instruments to the school system. India.Arie sang a brief a cappella song to the cheers of several hundred students at the Louise Spencer School on Tuesday. Carey begged off, saying she was too tired. Clinton spoke, but passed up the opportunity to borrow one of the students' saxophones and perform. "A few years from now, somebody's going to be on a stage like this doing what Mariah and India did today," Clinton said. "It might as well be you. There's going to be, in your lifetime, several African-American presidents, several Latino presidents, several women presidents. It might as well be you." Mayor Sharpe James said the city will donate an unspecified sum to supplement the cable channels' contributions.

    Heatherette Mariah's New 'Loverboys'
    Well, Katrillion had an inkling when we recently interviewed Richie Rich and Traver Rains of Heatherette, the hot duo whose logo tees have become the "it" accessory for stars like Eve, Britney Spears and No Doubt.

    Heatherette's edgy rock star appeal apparently impressed Mariah Carey, too. The pop diva called on the guys to design the airbrushed tee she sports on the cover of her new single "Loverboy." Mariah's hot rod-inspired top is the second Heatherette tee to recently gain national attention.

    Rich and Rains are also responsible for creating the "Carrie" signature top featured in this season's ads for HBO's Sex and the City. While you might be able to still get a tee similar to Mariah's through Heatherette, you're out of luck if your first name is Carrie.

    When we last spoke to the boys, they told us that you can get any one of their tee creations except the one HBO snagged the copyrights for.

    Hmmm, I wonder which one that would be?

    Glitter Script
    Some of you were telling me you were having a hard time accessing the Project Glitter site, so I made a section on Daily for Glitter Script Details. Today I added the scene where Mariah says, "What makes you think that's the best of me" and more information before and after that. It's really a cool scene and you can check it all out if you want to.

    Loverboy on the Charts
    Loverboy moved up 20 spots to #59 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. She is also #34 on R&B Singles, #50 on airplay and #23 on Rhythmic Top 40, for her third week on the chart.

    The only thing we can really do is keep doing is requesting her on the radio. There is only so much we can do sadly!

    DJ Party with Mariah last night
    Last week I reported that a DJ said he would be going to a special part on Wednesday night that Mariah Carey is throwing. We wern't sure if it was real or not but Joey informed it really did happen because he saw Mariah. It was a very low-key party for some DJ's and Virgin industry people. Joey went and said it was tight security and no fans were there. He got a picture with Mariah outside and she was wearing dark blue jeans with a yellow shirt that read, "Candy!" Her hair was up like the I Still Believe video. Joey will be sending me the scan of the picture later today that was taken outside the Hudson Hotel on 58th streed (8th and 9th in NYC). I will have it up on the site tonight or tomorrow morning!

    Dish of the Day: June 28, 2001
    Where's the love for Mariah Carey? Survivor struggles. And will the real Slim Shady please shut up? Krissy Goode

    HATIN' HUBBY: Mariah Carey is one angry diva. According to the New York Daily News, the pop star is in a serious feud with her ex-hubby, Sony Music head Tommy Mottola. Apparently, Mariah thinks Mottola is on a mission to sabotage her career via cheap rumors and gossip. "Mariah and the people at Virgin are totally distressed about this," a source told the paper. "Mariah's lawyers are looking to build a case that would charge Mottola and Sony with defamation and restraint of trade." And to think -- the dueling duo used to be married! Sounds like there's not much love in the air anymore.

I am in college and I don't have time to work my other computer yet. But I wanted to tell you my story and introduce myself. I have been a Mariah Fan since 1990. I love all of her music and collect everything possible. I first saw her in concert on December 2, 1993 in Philadelphia, PA. Then I met her on November 15, 1997. I recieved a "Dream Come True which is an orginaztion for terminal and chronically disabled children. So I picked the dream to meet Mariah and it took a long time and I was asked if I wanted to change my dream and I said no! I was so thrilled to meet Mariah. It was November 15 and a limo picked up my mom and I (my mom Elizabeth) and we were off to new York. We toured all around New York and saw a lot of sites! I love new York!!! I saw the church where MC and Tommy got married. Then at about 6 pm I got to go to NBC Studios and I watched the entire Saturday Night Live show and Mariah performed "Butterfly" and "My All" and then she and Louise Mcnally and another assistant and a manager, someone from Sony came up and Mariah sat with me for more than an hour and Mariah was so nice. She took a ton of pictures with me and said I should visit her one day and asked if I would help her fan club!!! It was truly amazing! I gave her a christmas teddy bear and an ornament with her name in it saying From Janel. The second time was at MTV studios on November 15, 1998 for the 1's party. She was really nice and said hello. It was really cool. Is there an address where I could mail you some pictures and maybe you could use my story. I really like the site although I can not email on it or anything! I love MC's new song as well! Thanks.

    People and Places
    NEWARK, New Jersey (AP)   Bill Clinton joined pop singers Mariah Carey and India.Arie at an elementary school to celebrate the restoration of instrumental music classes.

        The cable channel VH1, through its Save The Music Foundation, and Cablevision, donated about 750 musical instruments to the school system.

        India.Arie sang a brief a cappella song to the cheers of several hundred students Tuesday at the Louise Spencer School. Carey begged off, saying she was too tired. Clinton spoke, but passed up the opportunity to borrow one of the students' saxophones and perform.

        ``A few years from now, somebody's going to be on a stage like this doing what Mariah and India did today,'' Clinton said. ``It might as well be you. There's going to be, in your lifetime, several African-American presidents, several Latino presidents, several women presidents. It might as well be you.''

        The former president said he began playing the sax when he was 9, noting how music helped him express emotions ranging from unbridled joy to abject depression.

        ``It taught me discipline and creativity,'' Clinton said. ``It taught me how to be an individual and how to play on a team.''

        Clinton said studies have shown that students who take music classes tend to do better in reading, math and science.

        Carey, 31, said music education helped get her through elementary school.     ``The only reason I went to school was for music,'' added India.Arie. ``Now I'm on `The Oprah Winfrey Show,' and get to talk to Stevie Wonder on the phone and sit next to President Clinton, all because of music.''

        Mayor Sharpe James said the city will donate an unspecified sum to supplement the cable channels' contributions. VH1 President John Sykes said Newark is the first city in the nation to do so.

    TRICKS OF THE TRADE FOR A PERFECT FACE
    They might look as if they've been blessed with perfect features but the good news is that even the most beautiful celebrities have their facial flaws. Yes, the drop-dead gorgeous Jennifer Aniston hates her prominent chin while the ever-pouty Calista Flockhart is short-changed in the lip department. However, what they do have is a team of hairdressers, make-up artists and stylists who can advise them on how to divert attention from their problem area and make the most of the great features God gave them. The latest star to get the treatment is Victoria Beckham's sister Louise Adams, who has just had a major makeover after winning a contract as the face of Vladivar vodka. Here, CLAIRE ROBERTS casts a critical eye over 10 of our most popular stars and finds out what, if anything, we can learn from them.

    MARIAH CAREY ASYMMETRICAL FACE
    Like most of us, singer Mariah Carey has an asymmetrical face. Her right cheek is bigger than her left. Yet she does such a great job of concealing it that few people ever notice. However, Mariah is so aware of it that she is rarely photographed front-on, where the cheek problem would be most obvious - her head is almost always slightly off centre. She could use a darker matte bronzing powder on the lumpier side to make it recede, although this is not easy to achieve. More often than not she simply uses that old favourite cover-up - her hair. Mariah wears her mane obscuring one half of her face not only to look like a sex goddess but to balance her face. In fact, Mariah is a master of distraction, who has one ultimate flaw-concealing trick - she usually wears so little clothing that nobody looks at her face anyway.

    Kathleen sent me a little article from her local newspaper...

    Meanwhile, on the other coast, Bill Clinton joined pop singers Mariah Carey and India.Arie at an elementary school in Newark, N.J.  Tuesday's occasion - to celebrate the restoration of insturmental music classes there.  Cable channel VH1 and Cablevision donated about 750 musical insturments to the school system.  India sang a brief a cappella song at Souise Spencer School, but Carey begged off, saying she was too tired.  Clinton didn't borrow one of the students' saxes.  He did note, however, that he began playing the sax at 9 and it "taught me discipline and creeativity."

    Mariah on Entertainment Tonight last night
    Basically all they did was show the trailor and talk over it. They edited it too, which really annoyed me but it's was cool to see the trailor in a bigger format. If ya missed it, you didn't miss much!

    Loverboy Single
    Collegestud16 told me you can now order the Loverboy single on Amazon.com and Molly told me you can also order it at Artist Direct now!

    Magazine News
    ilovemariahmore@hotmail.com told me that Mariah is in the Cosmogirl magazine with Reese Witherspoon on the cover. Inside it's a sticker with Mariah in the Rainbow Shirt.

    Mariah is also in this months Tiger Beat with Aaron Carter on the cover and there are two pictures of her. One is fairly big with Mariah in a green top walking her dog, and the other is with Mariah in a black top and her trademark cut off waist jeans! The article is how to get your jeans like hers!

    Finally Tarah tells me that Mariah is in Boxoffice magazine. It has Glitter listed under August 31st and it gives a premise of the film. They have the famous Glitter picture, with the Glitter following all around Mariah. Also, there is a paragraph about Wise Girls under new movies.

    Glitter Trailor
    Jeremy, Steve and FlyAway told me that you can download the Glitter trailor and read an older interview from June 7th at ETOnline!

    Mariah to the rescue!
    On her first ever album, Britney Spears had a fun young innocent sound to her. With the fun , Baby One more Time to the romantic Email my heart, Britney jolted our music industry. As success and fame got to Britney, her songs on her new cd, Oops I did it again, became alot more "you want me, i want you" attitude. Singing of songs such as the teasing Oops I did it again and the boring Dear Diary, Britney became more egotypical and more childish. Britney is still a fine example of a fun teen, and a Ok singer.

    The exception to fame and superstars is the undeniably talented Mariah Carey. Mariah sets a fine example to people of all ages, not because of the way shes dresses, but the way she sings and acts and always has a beautiful smile on her face. There is nothing wrong with the way Mariah dresses, expecially with the recent change from up to THERE dresses to sleek long sexy dresses which she sported in red, recently. With songs of love, hope, wisdom, faith, and heartbreak, Mariah shows the reality of life. Carey is a rare find in our music industry. Her newest single, Loverboy, Mariah shows yet another fun summer hit! We not only are looking forward to her new movie, Glitter, but also to more pretty songs! Mariah is back! Thank gosh she saved our summer!

    Mariah on the Oxygen Network.
    Eric informed me of an interview on the Oxygen website for the show Just Cause. It is said that Mariah will appear in a special in July for this network but no information has surfaced about date or time yet. Here is a small interview taken from the site...

    Why do you work with the Fresh Air Fund?
    "They're [The Fresh Air Fund are] really changing a lot of these kids' lives. I know a lot of people who have been Fresh Air Fund kids, who have gone to live with different families, or different camps, and they said it changed their lives...Going and seeing new environments....a lot of the kids have written me letters and said thank you so much for, doing this and helping us have this because it really, stopped me from making a bad choice in another area."

    What is Camp Mariah?
    "They [the kids] do Camp Mariah each year...they talk a lot about the fact that if they hadn't gone, to the camp, they hadn't had this experience they might have ended up, being at home, hanging out, getting into trouble, and it's funny because they'll say thanks for helping me stay out of trouble. These kids really want to do something productive and it's not just a camp that's a traditional camp, it's a career awareness camp.

    "What can we expect from the new soundtrack?
    I've been working on the sound track and the idea for this movie for a really long time. It's set in 1983 but musically it's not just about that. It goes deepter than that. What today's music ends up being are like samples from the '80s for the past five years or something, but people aren't necessarily aware of it...So it's been fun writing and producing the songs and watching it evolve as the stories evolve too."

    Loverboy Production
    My close and very dear friend Mark, who works on production of CD's in Holland, told me that there are basically going to be three cd singles. Here is the info...

    Cat # 8978390 - The 3 Track? With CD-Rom options.
    Cat # 8978392 - The 2 Track.
    Cat # 8978400 - The 5 Track...I think it's the same as the US version.
    As soon as the finish they singles, they will be made available for Virgin two days after. The single will be released on July 17th.

    Mariah on Cover of Break Out
    Mark also told me that Mariah is on the cover of the June 28th issue of Break Out magazine and he will be sending me the scans later tonight.

    Mariah in USA Today
    Steve tells me that Mariah is in the LIFE section of USA Today today. I am going to go buy one and I'll have the scan for you shortly. It reads...

    Seen online: Mariah, Mel Brooks, and Kenny Rogers' doppelgangers.
    The small piece on Mariah reads:
    Mariah Carey makes the jump to cyberspace, after perhaps realizing that the web offers even more promotional potential than MTV. You'll find everything from audio clips, to fan letters - along with pics, naturally. wwwmariahcarey.com

  • Arkan:
    Hey there, this is Arkan from the Netherlands. Just to let you know "Loverboy" is doing very well up here. I haven't seen any kind of promotion yet, but the video is played mad on The Box. Loverboy is now SUPERBREAKER at No.5 in The Box ClipChart, it's No.18 at The Music Factory ClipParade and No.26 in the Top 40 TipParade, debuting higher than Janet Jackson's "Someone To Call My Lover" (No.29). Also, Michael Jackson's "invisible" tracklisting leaked. Altho there are no collaborating artists mentioned yet, fun thing is: he's got a song called "Heartbreaker". The whole tracklisting can be seen here:

    Do You Hear What Hear? It's Loverboy
    Here is how Loverboy is doing on the radio/tv:

  • Michelle from Star Mariah:
    I am so excited because I just heard the remix of "Loverboy" on 94.5 Kiss FM up here in Ohio. I never heard them play it before. The only Mariah songs they have played were "Heartbreaker" & "TGIFY". Just thought I'd tell ya that. If you visit their website @ www.945kissfm.com and look on their playlist, they should have Mariah's song, but unfortunetly, they dont.
  • Dan:
    I just wanted to let you know that here in Champaign, IL LOVERBOY is number 2 on 96.1FM's top 5 at 9!!!!  This is a total shock to me because they never played Mariah that much before, but now LOVERBOY is being played all the time! 
  • Michaja:
    I just wanna let you know that Mariah is going good in Holland, not as good is I hoped for but, Holland isn't Mariah Hot as it was a few years ago. But here are the charts position of Mariah here in Holland. Last week Mariah was number 26 of 30 songs in the Dutch "Tipparade" that's a guess from the Music Industry how big this song is going to be according to them. Then there is the Dutch "The Box" in the first week we voted Mariah straight into the top 10 making it at number 5 but this week she's slipped to 11. And then there's the most important chart of The Netherland on TV the TMF Clipparade Top 30, she's entered at number 18 that's quit good if you know that this tv station really Hates Mariah, their trying really hard NOT to put Mariah to much on TV. I hope you can use this information, if you want to be updated weekly, about how Mariah is doing here, just let me now. And maybe you want to help me, because TMF (the biggest show about music here in The Netherlands) have there daily top 5 clips and Mariah didn't get 1 day on the top 5.

    Mariah is proud of her bottom.
    She really is - her insiders say so. In fact, one of her insiders tells today's Sun (June 26). "She's proud of her bottom and isn't afraid to show it off," the insider says.

    The dolphin voiced self-arse lover has just made a video for new single 'Loverboy' in which her rear-end stars. "She wriggles her rear in tight blue shorts" and "spreads herself over the bonnets of luxury cars, giving her bot maximum exposure," says The Sun. Tabloidhell@nme.com would like to make it clear that there is no evidence to suggest any of the luxury cars on which big honking Mariah finds herself (Mariah, incidentally, recently insured her entire body for just under $8 million trillion million dollars) are moving. That would be dangerous and encourage fans who have arses of their own to do the same. Stay off moving cars, especially if you have an arse. Unless of course you are inside, sitting comfortably, wearing a seatbelt and not distracting other road users.

    Has Ex Put Carey Through Rumor Mill?
    Mariah Carey's feud with her ex-husband, Sony Music chief Tommy Mottola, seems to have only heated up now that she's left his label. We hear the singer has been talking with her lawyers about suing Mottola for allegedly trying to undermine her new album with a whispering campaign — a charge he denies.

    Even when they were married and she was on his label, Carey is said to have suspected Mottola of planting unflattering stories about her in the press. "They'd have a fight," says a source. "The next day, you'd read an item dissing her."

    After their 1997 divorce, Carey spent years begging Mottola to let her out of her Sony contract. This year, Sony finally let her jump to Virgin. Now that her first feature film, "All That Glitters," and its soundtrack, "Glitter," are due in August, Carey believes the digs against her have "stepped up big time," according to one of her allies.

    Friends of Carey suspect Mottola, using intermediaries, has been feeding the media rumors that she's having a diva war with Virgin artist Janet Jackson. They also claim the informants have leaked "early buzz" to reporters and radio programmers that Carey's movie and album are disappointing. Just last week, they note, Howard Stern mocked Carey as a "panicky" whiner. Stern later insisted, "I don't even speak to Tommy [Mottola]."

    Word is that the contract releasing Carey from Sony bars either Carey or Mottola from speaking ill of the other. "Mariah and the people at Virgin are totally distressed about this," one source tells us. "Mariah's lawyers are looking to build a case that would charge Mottola and Sony with defamation and restraint of trade."

    A spokeswoman for Carey declined to comment.

    Knocking Carey's "Glitter" album would seem to be counterproductive for Sony, since it has the rights to distribute the disk in Japan.

    A Sony spokeswoman says allegations that Mottola has it in for Carey "are completely untrue. Nothing of this sort has occurred. We are extremely proud of the work we have done in helping Mariah achieve the status of global superstar, and moving forward, we wish her great and continued success."

    Bill Clinton, Mariah Carey Sing Music's Praises
    Newark, N.J. (Katrillion) -- Three hot musicians -- pop diva Mariah Carey, R&B newcomer India.Arie and sax player Bill Clinton (better known for his former presidential gig) -- showed their support for music education on Tuesday (June 26).

    The three were special guests at an event that celebrated VH1 Save the Music's success in improving school music programs in Newark, N.J. "They've helped to put us on the fast track with new instruments" Superintendent Maria Bolden told Katrillion.

    Appropriately, the ceremony was held in the auditorium of one of the schools benefiting from Save the Music's efforts. Proud staff members and excited students at Louise A. Spencer School cheered loudly as the event's most famous speakers took the stage.

    "I wouldn't have become president if it weren't for music," crowd favorite Bill Clinton said. "Music taught me discipline and creativity ... how to take initiative and how to be patient."

    Mariah Carey also talked about her love of music. "(It) saved me as a child ... whatever I was going through," she said. "I thank God for music."

    A tearful India.Arie was inspired to sing her yet-to-be-released song "Strength, Courage, and Wisdom." The singer said music is the best form of self-expression. "No one could censor my songs," she told the crowd. Besides, "I'm sitting with President Clinton because of music."

  • John:
    Hi, this is John.T and I'm from one of the most beautiful country in Asia, Malaysia. I write to you just to let everyone knows what is happening to MARIAH in Malaysia coz I have not seen "Mariah in Malaysia" since I first visited your COOL site on June.

    I am a huge fan of Mariah and I really want to see Mariah topping every single chart. So, eversince I visited your site (again, cool site), I've been to TRL, BET.COM, Channel V top 5...to vote for LOVERBOY (at least 10 votes on each chart) everyday!! Therefore, I just wanna say : KEEP VOTING YOU GUYS!!

    Now, here is how is Mariah doing in Malaysia:
    Firstly, She is a very popular diva and people always talk about her when they're talking about female artist who has big voice. And according to the Recording Industry Association Of Malaysia (RIM) or RIM Chart Show which debuted in 1997(base on actual sales weekly), Mariah's "Butterfly" was on the top 10, "Rainbow" debuted on #3, and "#1's" had made history on RIM when that album is not only topped the chart for several weeks, it's also the longest running album on the top 20 (more than 70 weeks)!! Hurray!!

    besides, you can also hear her songs frequently at our local radio stations. And you know what, I can even listen to her latest single "LOVERBOY" as well. In fact, one of our local radio stations, HITZ.FM (which I think is a very popular radio station in M'sia), the DJs even play and talk about her latest masterpeice and I was so excited when I first heard the news about her upcoming project.

    Nevertheless, I also need fans out there to vote for her as well coz "LOVERBOY" is still not hitting the airwaves in M'sia yet( though I think it will be a big hit). So, please list out my article so that people will come and vote or e-quest (I can't do it alone).

    here are some websites to vote for:
    www.hitzradio.com
    www.mixradio.com
    www.rfm.com www.wowradio.com www.mtvpulse.com

    I still haven't watch "LOVERBOY" video on our local TV stations yet and I think it's better for me to watch it online coz our local TV stations do not play her video clips quite oftenly, especially her latest works like, Heartbreaker, Crybaby, Honey...but they still show her TV special such as "Mariah Homecoming TV Special", "VH1 Live", "Rainbow TV Special" and stuff like that.

    Do You Hear What I Hear? It's Loverboy!!!
    Here is how Loverboy is doing around the land...

  • John:
    Hi, my name is Jhon. I just wanted to tell you that Mariah is doing really well on the lebaneese radios.Loverboy is played every hour or half an hour and she's at #1 in 3 stations! for over a decade she's been huge here and it's continuing. the only bad news is that mtv were playing loverboy at first for every hour when the vid was "fresh" then they sudendly stopped palying it at all.thanks for you, it's really the best mariah site in the world!
  • Jag1094564 :
    Okay, so last week I asked everyone to vote for "Loverboy" on all of the Z100 countdowns because Z100 said that they would not play the song.  Well, I just checked Z100's hitlist and "Loverboy" is the 27th most played song out of 34.  So it's not great but Z100 always moves the lower positions up.  Mariah will probably reach her peak on the hitlist in mid July.  That's even better because then her peak airplay dates will be around the same date as the single release.  So "Loverboy" has an even better chance at #1.


    June 26, 2001...

    Mariah Carey's 'Hero': The Envelope Please
    We may finally find out what's in that famous envelope limo driver Chris Selletti says he mailed to himself in 1990. He says the lyrics to the song "Hero," which Mariah Carey recorded and said she wrote, are in it. Selletti has always maintained that he wrote the lyrics to "Hero," and mailed them to himself to make a "poor man's copyright." He's been making this claim for 11 years.

    Carey has always said she and Walter Afanasieff wrote "Hero" together. Now Selletti — after all his petitions and appeals to various courts have been denied — is saying he'll open the envelope on TV with an objective forensic expert present. Cindy Berger, a spokeswoman for Carey, said: "This case has been thrown out of court thee times. The federal judge — after hearing Selletti's story and considering all the evidence — ruled the case was a 'complete fabrication' and that it was filed 'to extort a settlement from deep-pocket defendants.'"

    A consistent sticking point since hearings in 1998 has been the contention by Mariah that she wrote the song "Hero" for the Dustin Hoffman movie of the same name. It couldn't have been, says Selletti. The movie Hero was released on October 6, 1992. Carey's notebooks indicate she started writing the song in November. The movie was already out. The soundtrack did not include a Mariah Carey song.

    A source knowledgeable about the Hero soundtrack told me for an article I published in Spin magazine in 1999: "We reached out to [Walter] Afanasieff and he sent in some instrumental music. But [director] Stephen Frears rejected it. There was never any discussion of Mariah being involved." Sandy Isaac, one of the movie's producers, told me that as far as he knew, Mariah Carey was never asked to participate.

    Back in 1990: Selletti was driving a limo for Sly Stone, who was cruising recording studios, working with Earth Wind & Fire's Maurice White (he appeared on an EWF album that year), and selling off songs and guitar riffs for cash. The woman who housed him at the time, a very upstanding person named Ruby Jones, said Stone would trade his music for greenbacks. Selletti says he showed Stone his lyrics. "He said, 'I'll get these published for you,'" Chris recalled. Two things happened next. One was Carey's recording of a song called "Emotions," a nearly note-for-note redo of a hit song written by Maurice White in the 1970s called "Best of My Love" for the Emotions. And then "Hero" came out, with what Selletti claims to this day are his words.

    White subsequently received payment from Carey for her use of "Best of My Love." It wasn't the only plagiarism case brought against the singer, though. Carey has always denied stealing songs, but has been involved in several settlements. One case was so contentious that Carey's then-manager, Randy Hoffman, the former partner of Carey's then-husband, Sony Music CEO Tommy Mottola, actually went to see the key witness in the case wearing a "wire" provided by a private eye. Hoffman tried to get the witness to admit he'd never played a song by writer Sharon Taber for Carey. The witness never caved, however.

    Not all the cases brought against Carey have been with merit or resulted in settlements. One case, brought by a writer named Rhonda Dimmie, is an example. Dimmie claimed she wrote the music for "Hero." Her case was eventually dismissed, with the judge ruling that since Dimmie hadn't written "Hero," Carey must have written it. That established, without actually giving Chris Selletti a trial of his own, that he also hadn't written it.

    Mariah's Testimony Revealed
    But Dimmie's case was interesting in that Mariah and Tommy Mottola were compelled to testify in a deposition about how "Hero" was written. They confirm in the deposition that "Hero" was intended for the movie. But how it could have been if the movie was already out? The smoking gun for Carey could be studio records that show her doing rough mixes of "Hero" beginning November 23, 1992 — a full six weeks after the movie Hero came out. Additionally, Selletti's attorney, Jeffrey Levitt — in papers filed with the court, but obviously ignored — revealed the actual song used for the movie Hero — Luther Vandross' "Heart of a Hero" — was copyrighted in January and given to the movie producers in August 1992.

    When she deposed for the Dimmie case, Mariah testified she'd been writing her "Hero" for the movie almost at the same time. She said she was writing it for Gloria Estefan — even though Mariah Carey has never in her career written a song for another artist.

    Mariah testified in the Dimmie deposition that when he heard the finished song, Tommy Mottola told her to keep it for herself. But in order for that to have happened, she would have needed a finished song in the summer of 1992 — since the movie was to be released in October. How then could she have notebooks from November 1992 in which she was composing the lyrics? In the same deposition, Afanasieff — who's been Carey's co-writer on most songs since her second album — testified "Hero" was written in two days. "In the course of a few hours," he said. "But it's hard to say ... it was within two days." Does he mean two days in the summer, or two days in November? If it was two days in the summer, then why is there a notebook with lyrics dated November 22, 1992?

    Carey's position in this matter at least is not assisted by the fact that her new single "Loverboy" is largely a remake of another old song, Cameo's 1984 hit "Candy." Since the recording of "Hero," Carey has a long history of "sampling" large chunks of old or existing songs on her singles — "Emotions," "Fantasy," "Honey" and the new "Loverboy" are all prime examples. Carey's attorneys, by the way, argue previous settlements were done because the cases were "nuisances" and weren't worth fighting. But most star songwriters aggressively defend and prosecute plagiarism cases rather than settle out of court. Cases in point: Recent actions brought against Michael Jackson, who — despite his other problems — is a gifted songwriter who has defended himself successfully in court. Also, Ronald Isley of the Isley Brothers, who fought Michael Bolton and won over a song called "Love Is a Beautiful Thing."

    Mariah gives a WHATEVER to Thalia
    Nini was very kind and typed out an interview that just aired today on Primer Impacto (Spanish News Show). Mariah was wearing a white tank top that said New York in blue glitter and a pair of shorts with heels, of course. The interview took place in The Piare hotel in NYC. Mariah showed up 1 hr late.  She was only supposed to be interviewed for ten minutes but stayed for more than thirty.  The reporter said that MC only refused to discuss Tommy Mottola.

    Interviewer:
    Did you and Luis really get married?

    Mariah:
    No, I don't get into personal things. People exaggerate too much. No, I didn't get married.

    Interviewer:
    Has Luis changed your life in a positive way?

    Mariah:
    I believe everything in life happens for a reason but I don't want to talk about that right now.

    Interviewer:
    What does a man have to do to win over your heart?

    Mariah:
    I think people should have a great heart and humor. 

    Interviewer:
    Do you and Luis speak Spanish or English?

    Mariah:
    I don't like to speak Spanish because I'm still insecure about it. I have like 5 languages mixed up in my head.

    Interviewer:
    Thalia came forward and that said that she's still the queen of your new record company. What's your response to what she had to say?

    Mariah:
    *Puts on her whatever face* lol I really don't know anything about her. I thought she did some soap operas and stuff. I don't know who she is and I really don't care! Adios (Bye)

    Soy Mariah Carey (I'm Mariah Carey)
    Los quiero mucho (I love all of you very much!)

    The reporter said that Luis hasn't even had time to listen to "Glitter" because he's so busy. MC also said that she'll get Luis Miguel to help her out with her Spanish because he's the best teacher.

    Tomorrow, Primero Impacto might have more from the interview up on their site. We will just have to wait and see!

  • Seba:
    Hey! My name is Seba, I´m from Argentina and the reason of this e-mail is to tell you of more ways to vote for Mariah in my country. You might know that she is not very well known here, she´s only recognized as Luis Miguel´s girlfriend. And her last singles haven´t been too sucesfull, and I saw in you site and there´s few info about voting Mariah in Latin America, so I decided to sent you some:
    - Much Music Argentina (the on you already have in your site) Countdown: countdown@muchmusic.com.ar

    Flow: flow@muchmusic.com.ar

    You can request Mariah in both and if you don´t know spanish, here it´s something you can write:
    For the Countdown:
    Hola! Queria dejar mis votos para la canción de Mariah Carey, Loverboy. Muchas gracias, chau!!
    (your name)
    For Flow:

    To write them you can use the same we used above:
        Hola! Escribo para pedirles el tema de Mariah Carey, Loverboy, que está muy bueno. Gracias y espero que me lo pasen. Chau!! (your name)

    And in the website you can vote  for the video you can see, but Mariah isn´t now in the 3 choices they give you. There´s also Top 5 Interactivo (Interactive Top5) , where you can choose the artsit, the video and the category of the top 5. The url is http://www.mtvla.com/top5i/voto.jhtml.

  • Alexander:
    I've been listening to 99.1 KGGI lately cause Mariah has been on the countdown lately, she has moved from #5 all the way to #3! And then I was on my way to work and Loverboy came on the VERY popular radio station 105.9 (Power 106) and it was so cool! and if you wanna get Mariah's loverboy to be on the most popular radio station then you need to request her on the Ellen k countdown http://www.ellenk.com/and click on the rhythm countdown!
  • David:
    It's David from Sweden, I just wanted to let u know about some things going on with Mariah over here. First of all, Loverboy has been played quite a lot on a station called Energy (NRJ) 105.1. Before the DJ puts it on he play parts of other artists hits and then says something like; "And now we're first again; Mariah Carey's new single Loverboy". So that's kinda cool. And another thing. On MTV Europe they had this thing where the viewers gets to choose from 2 different vids to be played by sending in an SMS. Anyway, u got to choose from Loverboy and J.Lo's "Play". As people were sending in their requests u could watch like a barometer with the percent of votes and everything. At first J.Lo had 70% of the votes but after a while Mariah got closer. Sadly, J.Lo won with only 2% of the votes!! How annoying is that! Well anyway that was basically it. Thanks for the awesome site!
  • Heather:
    I am in the Philadelphia area and I have not heard Mariah's Loverboy on Q-102FM, how can I get them to play it?  I call to request and e-mail them, I feel alone in this process.  I AM DYING TO HEAR HER SONG!!  Please help me get her song "over played" on Q-102FM (800)521-1021.
  • Laura:
    ok, so here's what's up with Mariah on the Canadian charts. According to the Canadian Hot 100, Mariah has just debuted on the Runners-Up Top 40 list at #38(meaning it's #138). It is still not on the Canadian radio charts, but is #29 on the Adult Contemporary chart(supplied by MuchMoreMusic).
  • Joey:

    Loverboy news from UK!!!
    HEre is what Ashes, from Rainbow Princess, told me:

    In mid september bbc radio 1, i.e. on sarah cox show, they will give out tickets to the USA Premier of glitter. (UK Only)

    It has also been confirmed that mariah has worked with Busta Rhymes (last night a dj saved my life) and mystical on the soundtrack of Glitter.

    Mariah will release her second single in the UK on the 10/09/01 or 17/09/01.  This is the duet with mystical.

    Mariah will appear in CD:UK when she comes to the uk in july.

    Mariah Carey, "Loverboy"
    (star) 1/2 (Virgin)

    Problem No. 1: "Loverboy" is the lead song from Carey's soundtrack to her new movie "All That Glitters," but the video has no scenes from the movie.

    Problem No. 2: Carey may already be a multi-millionaire, but trying to look more busty, more blonde and more naked will not help sustain a successful career.

    Problem No. 3: The song, which samples Cameo's popular '80s jam "Candy," has no recognizable chorus.

    The Solution: Put rappers Da Brat and Ludacris in car race, give Cameo a cameo appearance and hit a few high notes. It balances out to a track that's a pretty good listen. But the video may make your I.Q. drop a few points.

    Thanks to Susana for this information!

    EXCLUSIVE...New Glitter Picture
    Jose sent me a scan from some gay magazine (he didn't know which one), which features a brand new picture of Glitter. You can check out the scan in the Glitter #3 Gallery and if anyone knows what magazine it is, please let me know!

    Attention Italian Fans

    Rap-Up magazine gets pushed back
    Rap-Up magazine has been pushed back once again because they really want to make the magazine awesome for it's premiere issue; It will be released on July 31st. Rap-Up will feature new information on Glitter and Mariah will be featured on the 50 Sexiest Women of Rap and R&B!!

    Mariah on Top of the Pops
    Noel told me that there was a little news item on the Loverboy video on the German edition of Top of the Pops this past weekend. They also taked about Glitter and in a small interview, Mariah said the following...

    "It's not my story at all. Trust me - if I were to do my story we would need a mini series. We would need like a whole three volumes, and also we wouldn't be able to put it on TV coz people might have problems with it!"

    Digital Diva
    Mariah Carey makes the jump to cyberspace, after perhaps realizing that the Web offers even more promotional potential than, say, MTV. You'll find cutting-edge tech, everything from audio clips to fan letters - along with pics, naturally - some of which you may not recognize.

    Loverboy in UK...
    Here is what Survivadc told me

    Loverboy is on Sky Digital MTV Base channel 447 (dedicated to RnB and Hip Hop 24/7) nearly every 2 hours they play both versions. They have also started playing Cameo's Candy aswell which is cool. MTV Base pretty much has prioritised MC's RnB records and have aire Mariah Carey Essential again two days ago. They do regularily show Mariah specials.

    Loverboy is on The Box selection 333 it has been on for a few weeks is not being played much there.

    Loverboy is on Digital channel Kiss (RnB hip hop and dance) selection 333 and is played more often.

    Not on Smash Hits yet. Smash hits plays predictions and big chart hits. However J. Lo's Aint It Funny which premiered last night has already been added to Smash Hits playlist.

    Request Loverboy Around The World
    A lot of people are sending me places you can request Mariah's Loverboy in their neck of the area and I am going to add them below and make sure you check out the Request MC page to see how you can help MC out on the radio. Check 'em out...

  • Laney: Hey! I live in Philadelphia and I've FINALLY heard "Loverboy" on the radio!  The only problem is that it's onl one radio station and it's in New Jersey.  Philly is one of the few big cities that hasn't started to pound "Loverboy," yet, but we can fix that!

    Q102 and Power 99 are the biggest pop and hip-hop stations in Philly.  Everyone should take a minute to email Q102 with a request for the pop version of Loverboy.  The email address is: requests@q102philly.com.

    Also, the hpi-hop mix should be requested at Power 99.  To do that, fancs can go to this URL: http://www.power99.com/personalities/e_song.html.  For "section of city," they should put in "North Philly," "West Philly," "South Philly," or "Mt. Airy."

  • Chris:
    I've only heard "Loverboy" once in my town and Mariah's not any of the countdowns or anything. PLEASE! send e-mail to AJonBHT@yahoo.com. He's the music director at one of the stations here in Wilkes-Barre. I figure, if you can persuade the music director to play it, he'll put in the rotation instead of having your requests falling on the deaf ears of these dumb DJ's that we have. The request line is 1-877-971-WBHT
    Note: Don't e-mail him asking to play the song! Say stuff like "Oh I like the new Mariah Carey song and I was wondering if you had any plans on putting it in the rotation.

    Do You Hear What I Hear? It's Loverboy!!!
    Here is how Loverboy is doing on the radio...

  • Devin from Rap-Up Magazine:
    By the way, "Loverboy" is getting a lot of airplay on the hip-hop stations in LA, but the pop stations haven't played her song at all.  She is getting more and more street cred so that's good to hear.
  • Mariah4eva2001:
    i just looked at the top 10 selected videos on the box in the uk and mariah is number 9
  • Hannan:
    Being the #1 Mariah Carey fan that I am, I was sooo happy when my favourite radio station Power Hit Radio 148.5 fm in Sweden chose "loverboy" as their hit warning and played it every 2 hours!! That shows that here in Sweden Mariah is huge and plus she's the top requested song on the most populor swedish music show! How cool is that?! Just wanted to let y'all know..
  • Aronne:
    Hi Regina,I'm Adam from Italy.I'm writing to say that "Loverboy"stays at number 28 on the top of the pops chart in Italy only with the times that the italian radios have played it!It's a beautiful thing! The "loverboy"video,which was premiere on Italia 1 last Tuesday, had a quite big success of audience!Let's hope it will last!!!!! Bye-bye adam (Janet is at number 25,but the new single is a little failure!!)
  • Giuseppe:
    I'm sending news from Italy. Mariah entered the italian top of the pops chart at 28 position for the week 18/6-23/6. Well,now it needs a live performance to get the top ten, though on top of the pops is not so much important to reach the top ten than to make a live exibisition.


    June 24, 2001...
    Vote for Loverboy on BET and TRL
    Make sure you click the new banners below, so we can keep Mariah on the countdowns. On Friday, Mariah fell out of the BET countdown, PLEASE make sure oyu vote on TRL and BET!!

    Magazine News
    Mariah is in a couple magazines and here is a run-down. First off, she is in the July 3rd issue of Mira magazine. It's the new pic where she is in the white tank top and it's really clear and takes up most of the page, so I would suggest getting it.

    Next, Mariah is on the cover in the corner of they July issue of Biography magazine. Inside on page 46, there is a picture of Mariah from Glitter, where the glitter is falling down!! Plus there is an older picture from the Rainbow era. (Thanks Shantal and Jason)

    She is also in the July 3rd issue of STAR tabloid. It's a full page article taking about Sarah, the stripper, and Mariah. There is a huge picture of Mariah and Sarah together. (Thanks Danielle)

    Check out all the scans in Gallery 56.

    New Message
    There is a new message from Mariah on her official site and you can check out the transcript below, courtesy of Steph. Plus you can check it out in Audio and the Transcript page.

    "Hi its me again, i just wanna leave a little disclaimer that i tried to leave a message like 5 times but my phone wasn't working and i don't know how to do these things these technical things you know they freak me out. But anyway i hope that you got my last message which basically just said that i love you and ill never stop leaving messages for you - as long as i know how to work my phone! Bye"

    FABOLOUS GETS A CLUE
    No doubt you're hip to rapper Fabolous' astonishing turn on Lil' Mo's current smash single and video "Superwoman Pt. II."

    But even if that's the first time you've heard him, this 21-year-old Brooklyn native is no newcomer to the rap game. It was back in 1998 when mixtape king DJ Clue invited Fabolous to audition for one of his tapes. After hearing his barbed rhymes and smooth flow, Clue signed him to Desert Storm Records, the new label he and his production partner, Duro, had formed.

    Since then, Fab has been making his name on Clue's mixtapes and albums, and on singles like the remix of 702's "Where My Girls At," and others. He also rhymes on Mariah Carey's remake of "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life," on her upcoming album, and on new albums by Jimmy Cozier and Macy Gray.

    But all that's just a warm-up for the main event, the September 18 release of his own Desert Storm debut album, Ghetto Fabolous. The first single, the aptly titled "Can't Deny It" featuring Nate Dogg, is starting to pop up on the radio, and the rest of the album boasts tracks produced by Clue, Duro, Rockwilder, The Neptunes, Just Blaze, Timbaland and Rick Rock. Looks like it's gonna be a Fabolous summer...

    Mariah on AOL
    Robert, Ric, McLoverBoy17 and Meg told me that Mariah is featured in AOL's Together or Not. Basically it says whether or not these two celebs are an item and shows a picture of them. Mariah is teamed up with Pavorotti and it's an older picture of them. If you have AOL and want to check it out, click here.

    Pre-Order The Glitter Soundtrack
    Chris told me that you can now preorder the Glitter soundtrack at Sam Goody, Media Play and On Cue. I know when I preordered Rainbow, I got a free double sided poster of Mariah. So hopefully, you'll get something if you preorder the soundtrack.

    Plus, Chris tells me that Mariah's big contender is Maxwell. So MC might have a good shot at #1!

    No Glitter trailor in Dr. Dolittle
    I guess Dark Horizon's was wrong because there was no trailor for Glitter in the Dr. Dolittle movie!! Hopefully we will all see it soon though because trailors are usually released a month or two before the movie hits the theaters.

    Quick Update
    Sorry this is such a quick update but my family is over and I want to spend time with them. More information coming tomorrow and don't forget to vote for Mariah on BET and TRL!

    Mariah Carey hits the airwaves
    (Launch) - Superstar diva Mariah Carey's latest single, "Loverboy," was the most added song at radio across the country this week. DJ Clark Kent produced the track, which has been remixed by David Morales and MJ Cole. The chorus was taken from Cameo's 1985 hit, "Candy," and Cameo's Larry Blackmon and Thomas Jenkins contributed their vocals anew for Carey's song and also appear in the David LaChapelle-directed video. Rappers Ludacris and Da Brat are also featured on "Loverboy." "Loverboy" is the first single from the forthcoming movie soundtrack, "All That Glitters," due out Aug. 21. The film stars Carey and tells the story of a young woman (Carey) who dates a New York hip-hop DJ in the early '80s, with the hopes of jumpstarting her career. "All That Glitters," which is currently scheduled to open Aug. 31, was directed by Vondie Curtis-Hall and also stars Eric Benet, Kyle Thrash and Chris Tessaro.

    Nice Article from Billboad.com
    Over the course of her 11-year career, singer/songwriter Mariah Carey has scored seven No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. If beat-savvy remixers David Morales and MJ Cole have anything to do with it, Carey's new single "Loverboy" will be her next dance chart-topper. "Loverboy" is No. 44 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart in its third week.

    On the "Loverboy" single, due July 17 from Virgin, Grammy Award winner Morales, who has frequently collaborated with Carey over the years, delivers three restructurings, each with its own distinct style and energy rush. The Club of Love mix finds the singer's vocals floating atop spacey effects, lush keyboards, and classic Morales kick. For a decidedly trippier journey, Morales has created the Dub Luv mix, while the Drums of Love mix resonates with a tribal vibe.

    Cole's 2-step re-tweakings, titled Cole's Main and London Dub mixes, weave Carey's sweet, soulful wailings into a skittling, R&B-spackled landscape of hip-swiveling beats and rhythms. Cole's own album, "Sincere" (Island), was released in mid-April.

    Mariah in Newark NJ on Tuesday
    Butterfli and Maria told me that on a CBS show called, "Famous Faces" they said that Mariah Carey and Bill Clinton will be stopping by a local elementary school on Tuesday in Newark NJ for Save the Music. Here is an article about it, that Tom sent to me about it also...

    Clinton, Mariah Carey to visit Newark school
        NEWARK, N.J. (AP)   Former president Bill Clinton and pop singer Mariah Carey are scheduled to visit an elementary school here next week to celebrate the expansion of music programs in the city's schools.

    Clinton, Carey and singer India Arie are to appear at the Louise A. Spencer School Tuesday at 1:30 p.m.

    ``Our students now have the opportunity to not only excel academically but musically as well,'' said Marion Bolden, Newark's superintendent of schools.

    ``Our spirit and our music is alive and well.''

    The event is being sponsored by the video music television channel VH1 through its Save The Music Foundation and by Cablevision. VH1 is donating 750 musical instruments to the Newark schools.

    ``It's an effort to jump-start the music program in our school system,'' district spokesman Gregory King said. ``Through budget cuts and changing priorities, the program had diminished over the years. We're trying to bring it back.''

    Although arrangements are still being made, there's a good chance at least one of the instruments will be set aside for the ceremony.

    ``The former president might even play his saxophone,'' King said. William Day, the district's director of visual and performing arts, convinced VH1 to help out in Newark.

    ``There is an arts renaissance throughout the district, and an avenue is being provided for students to express themselves as individuals in a positive manner,'' he said.

    Day said there are tangible benefits to offering music classes in school. ``Generally, music students at all grade levels have better attendance, better grades, better behavior and a more positive outlook, as well as heightened self-esteem,'' he said.

    The trip will be Clinton's second to a Newark school. Last November, while still president, Clinton visited Malcolm X. Shabazz High School to tout its Project Grad program, which helps at-risk teen-agers improve their grades and steers them toward college.

    Howard Stern on Mariah
    Tom told me that he called into Howard to help defend the messages today. Some from Mariah's team also called in because yesterday they were talking about how Sony wasn't releasing Can't Take That Away and they didn't want people to think they were talking about Loverboy. They should be talking about Mariah's messages more on Monday's show.

    MariahCarey.com
    MariahCarey.com now has a new opening page with a new logo. It's bizzare though because their new logo is the same design practically that I have at the top of this page for Loverboy on TRL but maybe it's just a coincidence. Anyhow the NEWS page has been updated too, plus there is now a NEWS archive. (thanks Jeanette)

    STREET BEAT BUZZZZZ!
    Loverboy was elected street beat buzzzzz in radiomagazine Fmqb.com. They write:
    It's the Cameo sample ("Candy") but more important it's Ludacris and Da Brat that help blow up this track. Not to mention the video is pretty hot! 50+ stations out of the box and early believers such KQKS's John E. Kage, B96's Erik Bradley, KLUC's Cat Thomas, WJMN's Cadillac Jack McCartney, WLLD's Orlando, KPWR's Damion Young and WWKX's Jerry McKenna believe that Mariah is the goods and will once again rise to the top. With two movies and a new album on a new label, Virgin Records, MC is more than ready to return to the top of the charts. It should be an interesting ride!!!

    Loverboy is the highest new entry and the biggest gainer on their Street Beat urban chart this week!

    Breath of fresh air from GBP20m Mariah
    THE world's highest-paid singer did her bit for disadvantaged children with an appearance at a charity gala in New York to raise money for the city's Fresh Air Fund. Mariah Carey, who collects GBP20million an album, wore a clinging full-length red dress for the event at the trendy Tavern on the Green restaurant.

    She is a keen supporter of the charity which has provided free holidays for more than 1.7million children since 1877. Now she is looking forward to the release of a new single and album and her first big-screen film, Glitter.

    Z100 (100.3 FM; WHTZ) is not playing "Loverboy" Z100 is the biggest Top 40 radio station in New York.   They've been playing the same 10 songs over and over and over again.  Even Enya is on the playlist and Mariah isn't.  Below is a list of links to vote for Mariah to be played.  Hopefully Z100 will get the hint and start playing this song.

    You can go to www.z100.com to see more information on the radio station.  By the way, I also wrote a letter to Z100 complaining about them not playing "Loverboy."  Normally they play Mariah's music.  But they play "Heartbreaker" and "Always Be My Baby."  I've never heard "Loverboy" on Z100.

    Loverboy Single being produced in Holland

    Mariah on Extra
    Yesterday, Extra had a little segment on Mariah and Sarah Blakely, which she met during a break from the Loverboy video in LA. They showed footage of Mariah's Loverboy and had an interview with the stripper, Sarah Blakely. They showed a full shot of the picture on the right and MC was wearing jeans, the bikini top and the jacket, JD gave only to Mariah, Lil Bow-wow and Brat Tat Tat. Also, Mariah signed Sarah's arm and Sarah had a tattoo artist copy the exact autograph and add it to her ankle and they showed that. In the end it showed Sarah singing Can't Take That Away and said how Sarah was following in Mariah's footsteps and that Mariah was following in Sarah's. Didn't particularly like that statement but whatcha going to do?

    Howard Stern on Mariah
    Patrick told me that Howard Stern is talking about Mariah's messages again and that today, he would be playing more messages.

    Glitter PG-13
    Jeanette told me that UpcomingMovies.com has been updated and it says that Glitter is going to be rated PG 13.

    Another TRL Story
    Here is a story from Heartbrkr1802 and you can check out the scans of the pics in Gallery 56:
    hey, whats up? i just wanted to let you know my story about TRL on monday. i was outside right and when mariah came to the window i saw her say that she was coming down. i got so excited because i was a little upset i didn't get inside so this made up for it. at the end of the show, the nypd didnt take down the barricades, so i figured she really was going to come down. about 15 min after the show ended, she finally came down. she looked beautiful, as usual. when she got to me, these guys were like on top of me and my friend, so mariah's bodyguards yelled at them to get off of us...thank god! i handed her my daydream cd and she signed the jacket and when she handed it back, she looked at me and i said thank you. she said you're welcome back. (one of the awesome things about her is that she always makes a point to look at you so that you know shes paying attention to you and not just autographing) i got some pics and grabbed my friend. we got out of our spot and ran to the end where she was headed. when she g ot there i stuck my hand out and she grabbed it!! she made her way to her limo and everyone followed her. we were all in the middle of the street. everyone chased her limo...it was the greatest thing. thanks mariah!! you're the BEST!! kelly...

    Mariah's Glittering Life
    Note: This next article is from a British TABLOID called "The Mirror." Some of the items in this next article are completly false and should be taken with a grain o' salt. Some things were even so ridiculous, that I had to edit them out because they were offensive!! Thanks to Tom for the article...

    POP diva Mariah Carey is afraid that one day someone will pinch her and she will wake up.

    For the sexy songbird is finally living the life she dreamed of when she felt "trapped" in a marriage to a man 20 years older than her. She has also found a man close to her age who loves her without having to control her.

    Five years ago, as her marriage to Sony record boss Tommy Mottola crumbled, Mariah wanted a career like her idol Whitney Houston. That meant writing and producing her own records as well as starring in and producing movies. She's now got it all.

    The first step came earlier this year when she topped Janet Jackson and signed a record $23million contract with Richard Branson's record label Virgin. Proud Mariah said at the time: "I made this deal without anybody hearing one note of music."

    One US magazine even dubbed her the Godmother of the G-string Divas - teenage beauties Britney, Christina and the Destiny's Child girls, of course. Mariah's first film All That Glitters is due out in America next month. She not only stars in the movie, she co-produced the music drama and helped with script rewrites as well.

    She even sings the soundtrack and Loverboy, the first single from it, is being released to accompany the $38million movie. The film is unlikely to have the same impact as Houston's The Bodyguard in 1992, but she had Hollywood heavyweight Kevin Costner as her co-star. Mariah only has Halle Berry's husband Eric Benet as her lover and Max Beesley as her DJ promoter.

    Still the early word is that MC - as she likes to be called by her fans - turns in a moving portrayal as a young struggling singer determined to reach the top in the shameless music industry.

    It may have helped that the plot for the movie could be taken from Mariah's tragic early life. It is the story of a mixed-race girl who has been abandoned by her white father, taken away from her black mother and raised by foster parents. As a teenager, the girl hangs out in New York clubs, falls in love and becomes an overnight singing sensation.

    But the romance ends in tears and she goes off looking for her lost mother. It was originally written as a modern-day Cinderella tale, but Mariah said she insisted that producers turn back the clock to the 1980s. Mariah, whose mum is Irish-American while her dad is black and Venezuelan, said: "I had this 80s idea four years ago.

    "People said nobody is ready for the 80s. But I really felt strongly about it because it was nostalgic.

    "Some executives were concerned it was too soon, and people weren't ready to go there. I said, "Trust me, they are.'"

    And what a diva wants a diva gets - especially one who is getting a Whitney Houston-like reputation for throwing little temper tantrums. Strangely, it was Mariah's dreams of becoming a film actress that sparked the beginning of the end of her marriage.

    In 1993, she married Mottola in a star-studded affair, but the honeymoon period soon fizzled out and she now refers to the marriage as "the situation".

    Mariah - who insists she was a virgin bride - found herself trapped in her sprawling $40million mansion in Bedford, New York, wed to a man 20 years older than her.

    With plenty of time on her hands to watch videos, she began to think about stardom on the silver screen.

    Curvy Mariah began working with acting coach Sheila Gray who made her realise what she was missing out on - just about everything. She said: "Sheila was one of the catalysts for helping me move out of that situation.

    "I was so blocked emotionally. I sat on the floor and did relaxation exercises and started crying when Sheila asked me to name a place where I felt safe because I realised I didn't have one.

    "I owned half of everything in that mansion and paid for half of everything, right down to the electric bills.

    "I didn't have one space to think of. So it was this burst of emotion and it helped me realise this was not right.

    "I wouldn't be the person that I am today if I hadn't gone back into that and got in touch with myself. Not to sound New Age-y or corny."

    Her work with an acting coach has certainly paid off and the Hollywood buzz about her "glittering" work has led to her co-starring alongside Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino in Wise Girls, about three women married to mobsters.

    But busty beauty Halle Berry was so concerned about Mariah's sizzling shape that she visited the set of the All That Glitters during the singer's love scenes with her husband Eric.

    Mariah, who claims she has only been to bed with "less than a handful" of men, has since fallen head over heels in love with Latin singer Luis Miguel, 31. He recently gave her a $300,000 diamond bracelet that Julia Roberts borrowed to wear at this year's Oscars.

    Mariah has said: "We are very happy together." Now the only person who can turn Mariah's dream life into a nightmare is her sister Alison.

    The former drug addict and prostitute is writing a bombshell book that is set to blow the lid off the singer's darkest secrets. MCviaNewsEDGE

    Request Loverboy Around The World
    A lot of people are sending me places you can request Mariah's Loverboy in their neck of the area and I am going to add them below and make sure you check out the Request MC page to see how you can help MC out on the radio. Check 'em out...

  • Scott:
    So important.  Kiss Fm is NOT playing Mariahs 'Loverboy" AT ALL .....This is the hottest, most respected station in California.  Rick Dees plays it in the morning, but Carson Daily has a top ten list during the afternoon everyday and we NEED to get Mariah on.  If we can get Mariah playing on this station, then we got some great news.  They play the same twenty songs every hour practically.  This should be seen as a TOP priority.
  • Byon:
    Here's how MC is in Western Canada...well at least Alberta and Saskatchewan (yes people actually live here!) You can maybe let people know how she does over here.

    I live in Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA (you know, home of the Edmonton Oilers, Wayne Gretzky, world's largest shopping mall). It's a city of about a million people. Well, here in the prairie provinces, most people do know who MC is just like anywhere, but her music is not played too often. A lot of people seem to dislike her a lot, but I guess that's everywhere. In the last 3 or 4 years, the only new songs by MC we've really heard are Heartbreaker and now a little bit of Loverboy. Butterfly got very minimal airplay on certain stations as well. We NEVER heard Honey, My all, definately not Breakdown or the Roof, Thank God I Found You, Mariah's Theme, I Still Believe, or any others in between. The major stations in Saskatoon and Regina(in Saskatchewan) and Calgary and Edmonton (Alberta) don't play her. Very rarely you'll hear an old song but it's only a select few like Hero, or When You Believe (believe it or not). This is very frustrating living here!!! Now they barely play Loverboy in Edmonton, like probably a total of 7 or 8 times since it was leaked out 3 weeks ago. The night it came out she was on the 8 o'clock showdown against 3 Doors Down and of course "just barely" lost. She could never win in these cities.

    Yesterday Mariah herself actually called our main station Power 92 FM and of course the whole city was abuzz because of this. They'll never play her music but when she calls they acted like she's a god and no one that big has ever talked to them.  It makes me mad!

    Just thought everyone would like to hear a different perspective on MC from a different part of the world. If people want to request her here in Edmonton they can go to www.power92.com and click on VOTE NOW! You can vote as much as you want to. Thanks!

  • Val:
    I just wanted to tell you that finally! Loverbay was released in Argeninian medias. They are showing the video quitte often in  MTV and I heard it in several radios at diferent timings!!!

    Loverboy #5 on TRL yesterday and MC thanks her fans
    Yesterday, Mariah was #5 on the TRL countdown, which is GREAT news! She is now in the Top 5 and this will really help her out in sales. Way to go fellow lambs! Now we have to keep voting so please do so, by clicking the banners below. Plus, yesterday while they were showing Loverboy, Mariah came in and thanked us for requesting her video. It was taped on Monday's show!!

    Send Jill your love
    Jill has recently stepped down from her position on mariahcarey.com and I want to make something for her, with all of your help. Over the last two years, Jill has really done so much for Mariah Carey fans around the world. She took the time to hear what we thought, to help us talk to Mariah and to just be there as a friend. Because of her, we all felt that much closer to Mariah and we had a voice. Now that she is leaving the scene, myself and fellow lambs are VERY VERY upset and want to send her our love.

    If you would like to participate in sending her a little letter, please send it to MariahDaily@aol.com!!

    I know I can personally say that over the last year, Jill has made me feel special and someone who made me feel important in life. I will never forget what she has done for me and how she truly cared about us. She read post after post on the messageboards, would contact us and let us know what was going on with Mariah and would listen to our opinions. Plus, she even let us send presents and our love to Mariah. I am so upset about this all that I have tears in my eyes right now, as I am writing this. Please take the time to write her a little letter to thank her for helping us connect with Mariah. Without her, I fear our voices might get lost.

    WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH JILLIAN...
    AND WE ALWAYS WILL!!!
    FROM YOUR FRIENDS!!!

    Mariah Outside TRL
    The picture on the right was taken Monday outside the TRL studios and it is featured on People's website. Hopefully this picture, or one similiar will be in the magazine tomorrow and also, there might be some nice pics of Mariah in the tabloids. Thanks to Jeanette for the picture, which you can click to see larger and here is what it says under the pic:

    Mariah's Counsin Top 50 Bachelor
    Mariah's nephew, Shawn McDonald, is one of People's Top 50 Bachelors. Thanks to Kim, HoneyBFly18, Desiree and Jeanette for informing me about this. If you want to check out his picture, click here and here is what it says

    Shawn McDonald HARVARD LAW STUDENT
    AGE: 24 HEIGHT: 6'2 1/2"
    RESIDENCE: Cambridge, Mass.
    STATUS: Never married
    COLLEGE: Cornell University, 1999
    RESUME: McDonald was accepted into all six of the law schools he applied to. He completed his second year at Harvard in May and this summer is interning in New York City at two of the nation's most prestigious law firms: Cravath, Swaine & Moore and Sullivan & Cromwell.
    HIS INSPIRATION: Singer Mariah Carey, 32, his best friend and cousin. "She showed me that it is possible to make it," says McDonald, who was raised in a working-class area in Huntington, N.Y., by his father, Richard, 44, a bouncer (who was divorced from Shawn's mother in 1979). "My parents didn't even graduate high school," he says. "Mariah taught me to aim high and expect a lot of myself." He has made her proud. "We're very similar in terms of our work ethic," says Carey, "but I couldn't get into a vocational school, let alone Harvard!"
    ENERGY SOURCE: "I'm a Snapple iced tea freak," admits McDonald.
    FAMILY LAW: "Shawn has been talking about wanting to get married and have kids since we were little," says Carey. "I think he'll make an incredible husband and father."

    HOT IN A COLD climate!
    HOT IN A COLD climate! Mariah Carey is in Halifax filming "Wise Girls" with the Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino. Before being Nova Scotia- bound, she was at MTV where the "Total Request Live" show had viewers picking her single "Lover Boy" because they loved it (Of course!) and also in order to win the glitter car that appears in Mariah's new video. All of this activity comes from her megadeal with Virgin Records.

    The "Glitter" album bows on Aug. 21 to coincide with the 20th Century Fox movie of the same name for which our girl wrote the soundtrack. Yesterday, "Lover Boy" became the "No. 1 most added song" on radio stations across the country. Good grief! If Mariah had time for a personal life, it would sizzle.

    Jessica on Mariah
    Omri, from Mariah Carey Glitters, sent me a translation of an weekly teenagers magazine called, "Maariv La'Noar."

    .." Almost 21 yrs old, without a boyfriend, but with a second album in the biggest record company in the whole world. Jessica Simpson, the blond answer to Mariah Carey., releases this month her new album "Irresistible". She burst into the consciousness in 1999, when she released her first album "Sweet Kisses" , in the major record company "Sony" . When the album came out, Simposon was compared mainly to Britney Spears , and Christina Aguilera, not necessarily because the style, mostly because the age. "It wasn't really like that", Simpson is trying to explain. "People were trying to see it as a competition between the three of us, and I have to admit that I haven't really seen it at this particular way. But, honestly, I feel more like I'm close to the music level of Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson and Whitney Houston. I'm the new generation of this style".

    And this is really what it's all about . Sony's  record company manager, the biggest record company in the world is Tommy Mottola. He likes mixed black and white music, that is to say, white singers who sounds pretty much like black ones.

    His biggest representative, was Mariah Carey who broke all the possible sells records in the US. Mottola and Carey were also married and the emphasis is on were. After they broke up, Carey left "Sony"  and Simpson took her spot, a white as a snow girl, with a black as a coal voice, in order to fill Carey's place.

    But, despite the big shoes which Simpson got into, she's still being under supervision. "It makes me nervous, knowing that I'm being compared to Mariah". Says shy Jessica. "Mariah is huge and I wish I could be like her. But honestly, I'm not in the same level".

    Question: - Still, what makes you different then Mariah Carey?
    Jessica: "I think that, in this matter, I more like Christina and Britney. Beyond my talent, i think that my early success is what that makes it all very special. I was 17 yrs old when I released my previous album and I think that today, when young artists are being more successful in a young age, young people getting the opprtunity to identify themselves with a singers in their age and not with much older ones, such as Mariah Carey, who actually also sings for older ones".

    Mariah Carey's Loverboy Is Most Added Song Of The Week
    Mariah Carey Glitters During First Week At Radio Mariah Carey's first single, "Loverboy," is the most added record at radio. "Loverboy," the first single released from 'Glitter,' features a hook from Chicago's 1985 smash hit, "Candy," and enlists Cameo's own Larry Blackmon and Thomas Jenkins in the 2001 smash remake. The song, co-produced by DJ Clark Kent, also features rappers Ludacris and Da Brat, and has been remixed by producers David Morales and MJ Cole. The star-studded video "Loverboy," recently shot in Los Angeles, CA by acclaimed producer David Lachapelle, features cameos by Da Brat, Ludacris and Cameo, who take to the motor speedway for a never-before-seen adventure on wheels with sexy Mariah.

    Want to chat with Loverboy Marco??
    Marco, one of Mariah's Loverboy's on TRL, contacted me and had a little comment for all of you, which I posted below. He got my vote because out of the three, he was the only one that didn't seem so arrogant and he seemed like a really nice guy. If you want to contact him, e-mail him at mtravaglini@hfmmag.com
    Here is what he had to say:

    HEY EVERYONE, HOW U DOIN? IT'S MARCO, THE LOVERBOY CONTESTANT ON TRL FOR MTV. ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS THAT MARIAH WAS SO NICE TO EVERYONE AND I ALSO GOT A HUG FROM HER AT THE END OF THE SHOW. HEY WHO CARES IF I DIDN'T WIN, I GOT A HUG AND THAT'S ALL I NEEDED! SHE WAS SUCH A SIGHT TO LOOK AT. BEAUTIFUL AND BREATHTAKING DESCRIBES IT. ALTHOUGH I DIDN'T WIN, IT WAS A LOT OF FUN MAKING A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FOOL OUT OF MYSELF. CAN'T WAIT TILL THE NEXT CONTEST! SEE YA!

    Why Didn't Mariah Release X-Girlfriend?? The Answer from Miss M!
    Here is more from Greg, from Monday's TRL...
    During a commercial a girl I was sitting next to during trl asked MC during a commercial "I love that song X-Girlfriend, how come you didn't release it?" and Mariah said something to the effect of "The record company only wanted me to release two songs from Rainbow and the only reason they let me release CTTA is because you guys the fans petitioned."  

    Funkin' For Jamaica is a remake!!
    Yesterday, I reported three new songs from the Glitter soundtrack and Heartbreakee has some information on the one song called, "Funkin' For Jamaica"

    The music for the original was written by British jazz/funk trumpeter Tom Browne while its lyrics was written by Tonni Smith who was also the vocalist on the track. The song was a funk/dancehall hit of 1980 but I think it sounds extremely modern.

    Expect strong vocals from Mariah on this one, the original singer (Tonni Smith) sang it with a full deep chest voice, so I doubt there will be hardly any whispery vocals on this one.

    I'm so loving this song at the moment, it's so damn funky. It's really catchy as well which is great. If the rumour of this song is true, I'm looking forward to this one more than Last Night A DJ Saved My Life.

    Karen Carpenter beating Miss M!!! VOTE!
    mary.jean.gloudeman@milliman.com told me of a place where you can vote for Miss Mariah as the #1 Diva. Right now, Karen Carpenter is #1 and Mariah isn't even in the Top 10!! Karen only has 300 + votes, so we can easily get Mariah to #1 if everyone votes. http://home2.planetinternet.be/verjans/Singing_Divas/Singing_Divas.htm

    Mariah's Sony Site Still Up
    Steph and Jewelz told me you can still access Mariah's Site at:

    Some of the pictures are no longer loading though and I don't know if the links work anymore either. Check it out if you like!

    Want A Loverboy Poster?
    Well not really, but as I mentioned yesterday there is a FULL PAGE picture of Mariah in the June 23rd issue of Billboard magazine. Billboard is huge magazine, so the picture is nice and big. I picked it up last night and it's really nice and it's across from her debut on the charts at #79. The magazine is $5.95 but if you want something to hang on your wall for Mariah's new release, I highly suggest going to buy this magazine before it is taking over the shelves tihs weekend. Mine is already on my wall!

    Virgin Promoting Miss M!
    Jeanette let me know that Virgin is now advertising Mariah's new single/album on their website with an ad at the top of their website that reads...

    E! Online's "The Awful Truth
    SUMar235 sent me some information frm E! Online! Someone wrote to Ted Casablanca about Mariah's clothes in the Loverboy video and he defended her but dissed her acting. Check it out...

    Dear Ted:
    If you haven't seen Mariah Carey's latest attempt at a music video, consider yourself lucky. Someone should inform her that not only does she look tired and sound annoying but she looks like a sleazy extra from a bad rap video. Tav Gordon Texas

    Dear Tav:
    Oh, go puke in somebody else's column. For the record, Mariah happens to be one of the longest-lasting women in pop music. And she has practically sold more records than you have skin cells, so give the gutsy broad a break, will ya? (Write me when you want to argue the bosomy belter's acting--then we might have something to discuss.)

    Dr Dolittle and Glitter Commercial
    Here is what Matt told me:
    I was watching a local non-cable channel this morning (around 9am) and I saw an advertisment for the movie "Dr. Dolittle." Near the end of the commercial it said that there would be an exclusive sneak preview of "one of the most anticipated movies of the year"...and the movie was "Glitter!!!" But it also said in selected theaters only, so I don't know how many of us will actually see it. But I thought that was some pretty good news to share with ya! It did show a clip from the movie while they were talking about it....but it was extremely short sadly.

    Thank You from Two Fellow Lambs
    Two fans wanted to thank you for you help...

  • Jason:

Mariah has the best fans in the world.  And just remember to keep voting for MC on MTV and BET for "Loverboy".  Lets make it number 1 and put OUR Mariah back where she belongs!!  Thanks again for everything.

    Hi! Yesterday (and everyday for that matter) there was this show "video clash" in this show the viewers of the show can vote for the music video they want to see from 2 choices they have, yesterday Loverboy was against "Bootaliciaus" of Destiny's Child and Mariah lost! there weren't enough people that voted to it. today there is a second chance against the Backstreet boys. so please tell everyone in your site to go to http://www.mtve.com/nordic.asp?url=front.asp and vote for Loverboy. this is the only show that put Loverboy on, so we have only one chance in a day to see it, and many of ud haven't seen it at all. it's a live show, so you can only vote for it in a very small time. the show starts at 5pm in Israel, 4pm in the UK 10am in the US. and the video is in round 6. please we need many people to vote for Loverboy and it is really importent, especialyl that yesterday was the first time that Mariah lost since the begining of the show!

  • Peter:
    Hi, we did it Loverboy did great on the radio here in Oz.
      Each night of the Hot30.com countdown here in Australia two songs are put on test against eachother. The champion so far was Jaged Edge with Lets Get Marrid which has won the competition 14 nights straight. Today it was up against Loverboy and it won 7 votes to 1 in the Pannel of Eight. Everyone loved it. So now we gotta vote for it everynight to get it to number one on the countdown. the hot30 is listened to by millions of australians each night so now people know the song. Before the contest a spokeperson from Virgin aka EMI in Australia, talked about Mariah and her come back into the pop world. He also mentioned that Loverboy is the most played dance track ever in the world this week after only one short week of radio play. Vote for it on http://www.hot30.com/

    Send Jill your love
    Jill has recently stepped down from her position on mariahcarey.com and I want to make something for her, with all of your help. Over the last two years, Jill has really done so much for Mariah Carey fans around the world. She took the time to hear what we thought, to help us talk to Mariah and to just be there as a friend. Because of her, we all felt that much closer to Mariah and we had a voice. Now that she is leaving the scene, myself and fellow lambs are VERY VERY upset and want to send her our love.

    If you would like to participate in sending her a little letter, please send it to MariahDaily@aol.com!!

    I know I can personally say that over the last year, Jill has made me feel special and someone who made me feel important in life. I will never forget what she has done for me and how she truly cared about us. She read post after post on the messageboards, would contact us and let us know what was going on with Mariah and would listen to our opinions. Plus, she even let us send presents and our love to Mariah. I am so upset about this all that I have tears in my eyes right now, as I am writing this. Please take the time to write her a little letter to thank her for helping us connect with Mariah. Without her, I fear our voices might get lost.

    WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH JILLIAN...
    AND WE ALWAYS WILL!!!
    FROM YOUR FRIENDS!!!

    Stories from TRL on Monday
    As promised, here are some stories from fans that saw Mariah at the TRL studios. Some are really cool and they talk about the free Loverboy singles, the RAINBOW tour video and more.

  • MC Thug84 @aol.com: Hey everyone my name is Keith and I am a 17 male from TROY, NY. I am a DIE HARD MARIAH CAREY FAN. And on Sunday June 17,2001 I left home to go to NYC a three hour drive just to see Mariah on TRL I got there at 8 PM on Sunday. Well while I was there no other fans were there I was the first there me and my g/f,nobody else got there till 5 am on Monday his name was Peter he had a Mariah Tattoo on his shoulder we became good friends after we meet. Then around 6 am two more girls came I forget there names and all 4 of us hung out, then two more people came around 7:30 one named dan and I forget the other boys name but we all hung out. At 10 something a security guard named Franklin came out and said that he told the people in charged in TRL that I had been there sense 8 PM the other night that we automatically get seats. We all bugged out when we heard that. Around 1 PM we saw a real lamb and a person a person dressed up as a lamb I got my PIC taken with it Then at 2:30 TRL people came down and took the people upstairs, we were all settled and then it started. I bet everyone was waiting for Mariah to come out. Then the # 10 video came on and then MARIAH peeked out the whole crowd was bugging, then after the # 10 she came out and she was so beautiful and my heart Melted Away I didn't know what to do everyone was screaming, and she sat down and for a while. Then MARIAH and Carson sat down two feet in front of me I was bugging then. She was looking around and we caught eye contact I swear I am not lying. Then at a commercial I said to her "Mariah i have been here sense 8 PM last night" and she was like "For what" and i was like "Just to see you Mariah" and she was like " OMG you guys make me worried " . She was wearing a baby blue Suga Daddy tank top and jeans she had on high heals with diamonds she put on them she said and at the commercials all these people came out and did her make-up and did her hair and gave her a drink it she look like a million dollars like Carson said you had to see them doing that to her, and you had to see her take a sip of her LEMON SNAPPLE it was the best. Than at the end she said on air "I WANT TO THANK YOU GUYS FOR SLEEPING OUTSIDE" She was talking to me. Well at the end of the show they handed out the Loverboy single that comes out July 17. So then everyone left me my g/f and Peter went outside and We saw the Police driving the Loverboy car I bugged out again so I asked the driver to stop he did and I got PICS of it and me around it. Then we saw a limo up the street we ran to it and we were standing by it and then everyone was screaming we turned around and all you can see is bodyguards in black suits and Mariah GLITTERING in the middle. I took PICS then she got in her limo then I ran in front of it and took a PIC then it pulled away so me and Peter chased it down two blocks then it got away. That was the best time of my life and I will remember that day for the rest of my life she looked so beautiful and sounded really nice and was funny I really am thankful that I had the chance to go to NY at 8 PM Sunday and meet and watch and talk to Mariah she is my inspiration and I would do it all over again anytime she is so talented and very funny. I Love Mariah and SHE WILL ALWAYS BE ON TOP AND SHE WON'T STOP.
  • Greg:
    We got there around 12:00PM and there was a line around the corner and my heart sunk.  But I had my name on the guestlist so I was pretty much guaranteed to get in.  So we waited till 1:30 and then TRL reps came out and told the guestlist people to line up in a separate line.  So my friend and I did and they made us wait another 10 minutes and checked our names and gave us wristbands.  At that point my heart was pounding and I felt faint, but I was determined to get inside.  So they let us in in groups of 15 and I was the second.  We got upstairs and were led down a skinny hallway and then stood in line to go through the metal detector.  We put all our bags and pics in cubby holes and then they said that if we asked for an autograph then we'd get kicked out in 2 minutes.  So we walked through the metal detector and then had to wait another hour.  It was now 3:00 o'clock and I was all hot and sweaty from standing outside.  A guy named Steve walked down the line to get into the studio and was asking people who wanted to request a video.  I asked for Loverboy but that was already taken so I had to settle for Blink182.  (By the way, I requested Blink and then at the end stared screaming "I Love You Mariah, I Love You Mariah")  So now they start letting us in and they wanted to put me in some really lousy seats.  The studio was switched around to accomadate the Loverboy contest.  So I asked the girl if I could sit by the windows (RIGHT BEHIND WHERE CARSON AND MARIAH SAT) and she said "Are you diehard".  I had a Mariah tourshirt on (The one with the TGIFY cover).  So I looked at her and said "YEAH!" and she said ok fine.  So now I'm sitting like two feet away from Mariah's seat.  They started and Mariah peeked her head in the door in the middle of the number 10 Video and I started screaming and everyone else started after me.  They intro'd her and I started crying.  So now they did the little "Make Mariah Laugh" and We were'nt on camera so we were pretty calm.  Then after that whole laughing thing she CAME OVER AND SAT TWO FEET AWAY FROM ME!  I was like hyperventalating.  So at the commercial I siad at a low voice (she could hear me that's how close we were) "I like your ensemble." and she said back "I like yours too."  So then after her lil interview with Carson in the kickin chairs, they went to another commercial and I said "Mariah, can I have a hug?" and she was like "I'm ganna get in trouble but what the hell" and she HUGGED ME!  I was like shaking!  It was craziness.  Then after my hug she was like looking at me and waving.  Then a lady named Courtney said since I gave MC a hug I had to MOVE!  So they moved me in some corner but it was worth it.  During a commercial I went up near her and said "MC thanks for the hug, It meant alot"  "She said anytime lamb"  I"M A LAMB! AHHH!  So that's my story.  Oh wait then we got the Loverboy PROMO and it says specifically "NOT FOR SALE-FOR PROMOTIONAL USE ONLY"  So I kinda feel special.  
  • Ramsey:
    I am so happy at this point because I probably got more time with Mariah than anyone else in the audience. While Carson was still talking on camera I noticed Mariah peek through the door that she would come out of and I was the only one that realized that. So I wave and say "I love you so much" and she read my lips and said "Thank you I love you." Then her bodyguard pulled her back in and momentarily she came out after video number 10. I was the guy with the red shirt and the first to get up and touch her when she walked in. I was sitting closest to where she walked out of so I got up and touched her hand as the whole world was watching. She looked like a million dollars and it is so difficult to explain how much more breathtaking she looks in person. What really impressed me was that during the commercial breaks she would come sit by the fans and talk to them. I went up to her at one point and had I'd say a 2 minute conversation where she was focused on me the entire time. I told her how I dont know if I would've been around at this point if it wasnt for her inspirational music and how much she meant to me. She gave me a look as though she really appreciated that and held my hand tightly while I was talking. I have a whole new layer of respect for her because she is undoubtedly the nicest person. She is so caring and concerned with what you have to say. We also talked about her wristband she said someone made it for her it said "Angel" and she explained to me how that was the name of her character in her new movie with Mira Servino. I asked her about the Rainbow video and she said that it never even got taped and she didnt think it would come out at all because of the busy schedule with "Gilitter." Unfortunately the MTV crew was very rigid about not bringing in cameras so no pictures got taken at all. And about the promo Loverboy cd, it is not true that everyone got a copy. I would say there were 20 copies distributed at most and left a lot of fans upset. I happened to get one because I was in the right area of the studio at the right time. It is a copy with both versions of "Loverboy" amongst other remixes. Before the show, there were not many people out although I met two people that had been there since 8 pm the night prior. I showed up at about 9:30 and got on line and was one of the first there. All of Mariahs fans are nice people and we all enjoyed waiting outside for her. It was a day to remember.
  • Tom:
    Hey, My sister and I did get into TRL.  We were like the last 2.  I didn't get to talk to Mariah, but she shook my hand on the way in although I don't think she looked at me.  It was really cool just being there.  At the end they passed out the single, but there weren't enough so I didn't get one. That's about it. I think I so Jill and definitely her publicist Cindi Berger.  When we were standing in line some girl asked my sister "Are you Kim Webber" and my sister said "Webster" and she had recognized her from "The West Wing" and asked for her autograph. It was the first time someone recognized her so she was excited for that.
  • ButtterfIi :
    oh my god regina i was on TRL with mariah today SO MUCH if u watched it and u saw for awhile there was a shot of her, carson, and a girl in a red shirt just the 3 of them..that girl was me! I talked to her during commercials and stuff it was amazing! and she touched my hand at the end and said "i love you" ...it was so cool! shes the best...i got to spend an hour and a half with her..the best experience of my life!

    Glitter Trailor
    Tarah and my friend Melissa, who both work at movie theaters, reminded me that not all theaters will add Glitter to Dr. Dolittle, if it is against their policy or they are not instructed to do so. Hopefully all of them will add it though and I guess we will just have to wait and see which theaters do!!

    EXCLUSIVE...Three New Titles from Glitter
    Stamos translated the article from the Greek Virgin records site. In the article, it mentions a new ballad from Miss M called Lead The Way and two others including I Didn't Turn You On and Funkin' For Jamaical. Again a huge thanks to Stamos for the translation and here it is

    As we have already mentioned in previous articles, the big return of the pop diva Mariah Carey is approaching.  Her first album for Virgin titled GLITTER which will also be the soundtrack for her first film will be in stores in August.  Lover Boy, the first single from Glitter includes a sample of Candy, a classic hit from the 80's funk band Cameo! Mariah, an artist with a record braking 14 # 1 hits in her career, has combined in this new CD a different style than the one we are used to combining at its best, the classic ballads with catchy and cheerful up tempo party songs.

    Some of the new songs that will surely stand out in this new album include: I Didn't Turn You On, Funkin' For Jamaica" and "Last night a DJ Saved My Life as well as the outstanding ballad Lead the Way.  

    Her remarkable collaborations in this new project with Mystical, Ja Rule, Busta Rhymes, DJ Clue, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis and Cameo among others, are sure to ensure an instant success!!!"

    So we now know 7 of the 12 new song titles for the new Glitter album. How cool is that!
    Loverboy
    Last Night A DJ Saved My Life
    Lead The Way
    I Didn't Turn You On

    Ed The Sock DISSES Mariah big time...
    Okay we have a mission people, to get Ed The Sock off the air when it comes to MuchMusic station. Yesterday he played Mariah's new video, Loverboy, and cut into it half way dissing the entire video, even calling her a whore over TEN times! Now he does not just not like Mariah, he disses almost every celebrity on his show and the station wants to pull his show off the air. Ed has created an e-mail address for people to write in and protest the fact they want to cancel his show but we want all the Mariah fans to write in and request that he does get removed from this Canadian music show.

    So send in your opinions about what he called Mariah and how the show should be removed to:

    Mariah got the fanbook from Joe at TRL
    Joe wrote me and let me know that Mariah did get the fanbook at TRL, that contained all of your letters. He gave it to one of her bodyguards, who was outside her dressing room and during the show, he asked her if she got it and she said yes she did and loved it. If you would like to thank Joe for being such a nice lamb and doing this for you, contact him at:

    Nice tips!
    Mariah Carey was so impressed with a routine stripper Sarah Blakely performed for her at an LA strip joint recently, she tipped her $480. The singer, who was baring almost as much flesh as the stripper, even got up on stage for a dance. "Mariah's always been my favourite singer, and I even called my little girl Mariah," says Sarah.

    Mariah Carey Researches Job as Waitress
    IF THE hits ever dry up for Mariah Carey, she has a guaranteed job as an Italian waitress in Brooklyn. The singer went undercover to research a new film role - a waitress in a Mafia restaurant - and was so authentic that a big-tummed Godfather offered her a job. "She was pretending to be looking for work and put on an Italian New York accent, " says a source on the film, Wise Girls, which co-stars Mira Sorvino. "The guy said she looked like 'that singer' but Mariah kept up the act and landed the job."

    She is clearly gaining in confidence as an actress after completing her movie debut, Glitter, in which she plays a character closer to home - a singer. Carey also recorded the soundtrack album for the movie, which co-stars Max Beesley.

  • Peter:
    See, australian radio stations dont play mariah anymore, maybe 2 times a week so i think if this song can chart well as in top 5 in the official australian charts the radio stations will play it. We need to get Loverboy on the Australian radio now that the US are playing it. We need everyone to vote for loverboy on http://www.hot30.com/
    just click on vote and enter your first name, email address and pick a state in Australia. Then right at the bottom of the page u write Loverboy Mariah Carey in 'or someone else'. This show is listened to by millions of Australians weeknights from 6pm so if it charts good here it will do good on the official aust charts the ARIAs. You have to vote every day for a few weeks so bookmark the site. But only once a night as only 1 vote is counted per day. We really need your help here so do it everyday if you can.

    Do You Hear What I Hear? It's Loverboy!
    Here is how radio is doing around the land..

  • FanaticOfMC :

But still havent heard Loverboy so if any pittsburgh fans want to vote for it.

    Mariah on TRL yesterday
    Mariah was on TRL for the entire hour and a half show. She came out right after the #10 video was shown and she was wearing a pair of jeans, note not the classic jeans she is known for now, and a tank top reading, "Sugar Daddy's Doughnuts." She also had a Lamby belt, which she was really proud of. Her hair was similiar to the BET interview and she looked very relaxed and beautiful. The 3 guys who were going for her car had to impress Mariah in four ways. They had to make her laugh, show their artistic abilities, rap for her and then show some love with only $5. In the end, David won. Mariah's mom, Patricia Carey, even called in and gave her vote for David. Mariah's Loverboy video was #7, up a place from last week.

    Everyone in the audience got a copy of Mariah's new single and Mariah said she would now be sending all her fans a copy too. Ha ha, just kidding but everyone in the audience did indeed get a copy. Coming tomorrow, stories from fans in the audience hopefully!!

    Mariah Carey Gets Two-Step Treatment From MJ Cole
    Most pop superstars would be happy staying one step ahead of the curve. With her new single, "Loverboy," Mariah Carey will be two steps ahead.

    Carey recruited two-step producer MJ Cole to bring a bit of the latest British dance music craze to a remix of the first single from her "Glitter" soundtrack, due August 21.

    Cole's "Loverboy" remix has already been shipped to clubs, a Virgin Records spokesperson said. The "Loverboy" single will be released in stores on July 15, though the two-step remix will likely not be included. However, a hip-hop version featuring Ludacris and Da Brat will be on the commercial single.

    Carey's original version of "Loverboy" samples Cameo's 1986 hit "Candy," which she bought exclusive rights to (see "Mariah To Beat Biters: How Ya Like Me Now?").

    A spokesperson for Cole said his remix is reminiscent of the two-step style he and such fellow Brits as Artful Dodger and Craig David have turned into a phenomenon overseas. Also known as U.K. garage, two-step is a mix of drum'n'bass and R&B and is named for having two beats per bar rather than the standard four beats most often used in rock and techno.

    Cole will spin his remix when he plays a Breakbeat Science party in New York on July 21 along with Craze, Dara, DB and Reid Speed. The DJ will remain in the Big Apple that week for the Billboard Dance Music Summit, and will perform at Centro-Fly on July 26 with Artful Dodger.

    Sincere, Cole's debut, arrived in the U.S. in April. Later this year, the producer plans to release a double-CD collection of some of the more than 100 remixes he's done for other artists (see "MJ Cole Two-Steps Out With Sincere").

    EXCLUSIVE...Glitter Trailor in Dr. Doolittle this weekend!!
    If you go to Dark Horizons Website, they have new information on the Glitter trailor, which will drop this weekend and also, some on set news. Thanks to Chris for this information...

    On Location/Updated: Wednesday June 6 2001...
    Glitter:

    "I was on 'Glitter' with Mariah Carey in a record industry party scene. What was interesting about the 'shoot' was that the 100 or so background performers during this particular scene were frisked and 'patted-down' by Mariah's bodyguards, before being allowed to enter the set. When the bodyguards were questioned 'why' the shake-down, it was explained that "Mariah is between recording contracts right now and we are looking for unauthorized recording devices (?!)". Funny thing is Mariah was NOT singing in the scene. She was merely part of the party action, which was broken up by actor 'papparazi' party-crashers."

    Trailors/Updated: Friday June 8 2001...
    Trailer Placings:

    News on previews to look out for with films opening next week. Expect new trailers for the animated "Osmosis Jones" and Mariah Carey's "Glitter" to be attached with "Doctor Dolittle 2" whilst "The Fast and The Furious" will include "American Outlaws" and most likely both "Serendipity" and "Planet of the Apes". Thanks to 'Boo' I just thought I would let you guys know, they are usually very accurate, and Entertainment Weekly and Variety gave them good ratings. So basically Mariah's Glitter Trailer will be out with Dr Dolittle 2 this weekend! Thanks!

    Help Mariah in Australia

    Did you know that Mariah is one of the most successful artists ever in Australia? Here is a message coming in from down there: My name is Neil and I run the Australian Mariah Carey Fanclub - we really need your help down here in Australia. So far, a few radio stations are playing LOVERBOY, and the response has been awesome! What I'm asking is for you to put a link to the AMCF LOVERBOY REQUEST page on your site and help spread the word. I'd really appreciate your help.

    AMCF LOVERBOY REQUEST (click here)

    Thoughtful From Elle magazine
    Very nice and thoughtful little mention of Mariah from the editorial in Elle magazine, be sure to get your copy for a long article and lots of pictures.

    In our celebrity-soaked culture, we often forget why people - some people, anyway - become famous in the first place. We get caught up in scrutinizing their mating habits, their dining habits, their wardrobes, that their talent becomes obscured, almost an afterthought.

    I've always found it strange that much of the press coverage of Mariah Carey is spent questioning her creative choices and personal life, yet rarely remarks on her powerful five-octave-range voice, surely one of the great pop instruments of the last decade.

    A few years ago, I was seated next to Carey at a small dinner in a downtown restaurant. It was late, the evening was winding down, and she was staring off into space, lost in her own thoughts. I'd been talking with the person on my other side when she started singing to herself, just under her breath, almost subconsciously. Her little song stopped me midsentence. Hearing that voice, so recognizable from the radio and MTV, even at next-to-no volume and minus the orchestra, made my heart skip a beat.

    This month, Carey - who outranks every other female vocalist, including Madonna, for number-one hits - lets writer Thomas Beller in on her next big moves: a new movie and a new album, which promises to be both an artistic departure and a chart-topper.

    Keep your eyes open for...
    The trailer for Mariahs Glitter movie! Coming to a cinema near you any day now. Also watch out for the official Glitter site, opens soon! The location will be: http://www.glittermovie.com

Seriously how great would that be!!!

    Loverboy in Brazil
    Mario and a couple other peole contacted me and let me know that Loverboy premiered this past weekend on Fantastico in Brazil.

    Mariah Under Fire: Vulnerable to Attack Now?
    Mariah Carey got a taste of what life is like without Tommy Mottola last week. The question is, can she handle it? For years Mariah was off-limits to criticism from the music press because she was married to Sony Music's chief operating officer. Even former New York Daily News gossip columnist AJ Benza admits in his new memoir that he treated Carey with kid gloves because of her high-powered marriage.

    But all that changed last week when Billboard, the record industry's trade magazine and bible, reviewed Carey's first non-Mottola released single, "Loverboy." The magazine, which almost never gives a negative opinion, came down hard on "Loverboy," the first single from the soundtrack to the movie Glitter, in which Mariah stars, and her first on her new, extremely rich deal with Virgin Records.

    The magazine's singles reviews editor Chuck Taylor wrote: "After such a prestigious record of hits for more than a decade, 'Loverboy' sounds dangerously close to self-sabotage. The mighty may have fallen here."

    This was something of a change of heart from Billboard's review of Carey's single "Honey" in 1999. "Honey," which was on the same par as "Loverboy" — a mélange of samplings from old songs with Carey scatting, not singing, inane and indecipherable lyrics — fared slightly better. Even if the reviewer didn't like the song, the spin was still positive.

    "It's always an event when Mariah Carey releases the first single from an upcoming album — in this case Rainbow, due this fall from longtime label Columbia. … Simply put: Yes, it's a hit, and her voice is in fine form, but 'Heartbreaker' is a disappointment in terms of what we know she's capable of writing." It turns out, it's all in the way you look at it.

    It didn't help last week that Sony/Columbia released the new album by Jessica Simpson, teen sensation wannabe and Carey successor. A feature written in Billboard by the very same Chuck Taylor reads:
    "Among the highlights of Irresistible is Simpson's favorite, 'Hot Like Fire,' a funky midtempo shuffler that she delivers with blazing vocal grit — it's certainly not kid stuff. … The set also serves up momentously luscious ballads …" Calls to Taylor on Friday were not returned.

    Additionally hurtful to Carey is that Simpson is evidently aided by her onetime songwriting partner at Sony, Walter Afanasieff, who shaped some of Carey's biggest songs. For "Loverboy," according to the writing credits, Carey composed the song herself and lists the members of the group Cameo as her partners. "Loverboy" is mostly sampled from Cameo's 1980s hit record Candy.

    Carey on her own as a songwriter is problematic. She's been involved in several plagiarism lawsuits, most of them settled with Carey making a large payoff and no admissions of guilt. One of the suits, over the song "Hero," has dragged on for most of a decade. Former limo driver Christopher Selletti claimed that lyrics he'd written and given to onetime pop star Sly Stone had turned up as "Hero."

    In her defense, Carey produced notebooks and tapes to the court showing how she and Afanasieff wrote the song for the Dustin Hoffman movie, Hero. Unfortunately, the dates for these sessions were after the movie was released. But Selletti was ill-equipped to combat Carey's impressive legal resources and has never prevailed.

    Carey's previous sampling efforts include a hit record called Fantasy, based on the Tom Tom Club's "Genius of Love" — which she acknowledged; and the wholesale theft of the Emotions' "Best of My Love" for her 1991 hit "Emotions," written by Earth, Wind & Fire's Maurice White. In the latter case, White received payment after complaining about the songs' similarities.

    If "Loverboy" is not a hit, Carey's next single is said to be a remake of "Hey Mr. DJ" — also from the 1980s — although Carey's already sampled "Hey DJ" by Malcolm McLaren for "Honey," so who knows what that means. There's already been a Jennifer Lopez version of "Hey Mr. DJ" called "Play" and a Backstreet Boys song with the same name and idea. But of course none of these acts can ever be accused of originality. (Madonna, I believe, also dabbled with this idea.)

    Carey is also busy filming a new movie up in Canada, but set in Staten Island, N.Y. The $10 million indie feature, called Wise Girls, is about three waitresses who work in a mob-owned diner. Mira Sorvino, who has frittered her 1995 Oscar away, and Melora Walters, are her co-stars. David Anspaugh, who directed the mediocre efforts Rudy, Moonlight and Valentino and Hoosiers, is in charge.

    How to spotlight that pricey bauble?
    It was just a diamond bracelet. But in luxury marketing public relations, it was more like the rock that cast the ripples, when actress Julia Roberts wore a snowflake-designed Van Cleef & Arpels bracelet (and earrings) to the Academy Awards.

    After she won best actress for ``Erin Brockovich'' and stood in front of the camera with the statue firmly clutched in her arms, all the world suddenly wanted to know about the bracelet decorating her right wrist. Well, maybe not all the world, but certainly the exclusive celebrity and fashion set. The bracelet garnered dozens of press mentions from the New York Post's ``Page Six'' gossip column to CNN.

    Van Cleef & Arpels even ended up selling the $91,000 bracelet to singer Luis Miguel, who bought it for his girlfriend, pop diva Mariah Carey.

    Glitter Trailor
    Moviewatcher.com, AMC's website, will have the preview of Glitter up on their website shortly. They have a preview button for the trailor but it doesn't work at the moment, meaning they are probably still working on uploading it to their site. Thanks to iMariah for this information and here is what it says on their website:

    Glitter (PG-13), for some sensuality, language and brief violence
    Drama 
    Starring: Mariah Carey, Max Beesley, Eric Benet, Shawntae "Da Brat" Harris, Terrence Howard
    Directed by: Vondie Curtis-Hall
    Produced by:  Laurence Mark, Mariah Carey

    Review:
    A gifted young singer and teen beauty, who is abandoned by her drug-addicted mother, grows up in a foster home in the projects until a talented DJ with clout hears her demo and gets her a record deal. She soon falls for him but ultimately decides she must escape his heavy-handedness to find her own style.

    Plus, Hillary recently saw the Glitter trailor and here is more about that:
    As my friend and I were walking through a mall, a women stopped us and asked us if we wanted to view a 30sec clip of a movie and then answer a few questions, like whether we would go see the movie.  We agreed and continue to walk into their office as others did [it was one of those offices for technical research-they will give you a product to test, in this case a movie, and then you answer questions on whether you liked it].  Across from one of the woman's desk was a table with about 3 or 4 rows of videos.  She picked one of the movies and then directed us to go to one of the empty cubicles.  She left the video and gave us a sheet to fill out.  While waiting for the other woman to come and put the movie on, my friend and I were talking.  Just out of curiosity I looked down and saw the little label [about the size of a small price label] and I thought it said Glitter…so I picked it up and YES it said GLITTER!!! I was like OMG…my friend, who also likes Mariah and knows how much I love her, was also excited!  I couldn't believe it…I immediately turned back around to the woman's desk and said something like is this Glitter with Mariah Carey??  And she said yes it is and smiled!  I was so giddy and excited to have the chance to watch the trailer for her movie!  I cannot remember all the details, but here are some of the aspects of the preview:  1) it opens in a club (I believe) and Mariah's mother is introducing her daughter to a crowd of people 2) they show clips of Mariah meeting Max 3) clips of Da Brat giving advice about Max to Mariah 4) Eric talking to Mariah 5) the famous pic of MC and the backup singers in the silver outfits and all the Glitter falling 6) a few seconds of Mariah singing a ballad, and hearing clips of Last Night A DJ Saved My Life, and Loverboy!!  7) Mariah crying out of frustration over her relationship - It looks stellar!  I answered the review with the best responses, in fact.  The woman who interviewed us said she was actually a big fan of Mariah's when she was younger.  Some of the questions where: Have you heard of MC?  Do you like MC?  What do you think the movie is about?  What TV shows do you watch?  What magazines do you read?  What do you think of the movie (with different answers you could pick from? and so on… I cannot wait till we all get to see it in the movie theaters!!  I even asked the woman if I could possibly have one of the videos when they are done with the project, but she said they had to give them back to the company!  Oh well.  I just thought you would be interested in this! :)

    New Pictures/Magazine News
    Mariah is in a couple magazines this week. First off, there are 2 pictures of MC in USA Weekend (June 15-17). This is the little magazine insert in newspapers across the USA and they have different names for the magazine insert too. There is a pic of Luis and Mariah in Spain earlier this year and than a HUGE picture of Mariah from the Rainbow Tour. It's really nice how they included such a large picture of Mariah. I scanned the pic and added it in Gallery 55. Here is what the article says, courtesy of Susana

    Last I heard, my favorite singing star, Mariah Carey, was making a movie as well as writing and recording the soundtrack. When will they be out?
    Melissa Lindsay, Springfield, Ill.

    "Glitter" the movie is due in theaters Aug. 31; the soundtrack CD of the same name is out 10 days before. Carey's publicist insists the movie is not based on the singer's own Cinderella-like discovery by much older Sony Records honcho Tommy Mottola, whom she married and divorced. But certain parallels can't be ignored. It's the story of a wanna-be R&B singer who meets a famous DJ, falls in love and makes it big. Carey's love these days is Latin singer Luis Miguel. They have been dating for three years and spend as much time together as they can find.

    Next off, Mariah is in the June 26th issues of Star and National Enquirer. Both tabloids have pictures of Mariah in the lovely red dress from the recent Fresh Air Event. Plus, you can see another picture of Mariah in the red dress in the June 25th issue of People magazine (Thanks to Tom for the People scan). All of these scans are in Gallery 55.

    You can check out a nice picture of Mariah from the recent Fresh Air event by clicking here, if you are an AOL member (Thanks Matt). If you are not on AOL, check out Gallery 55.

    Mariah is also in the July 2001 InStyle magazine. There is a little picture of her from the 1999 AMA's. Here is what the article says:

    The Fleet Elite
    Big Eagle

    For the right price you and eleven friend can board this stately vessel and sail the Mediterranean. Mariah Carey and her boyfriend Luis Miguel enjoyed the Eagle's onboard treadmill and huge in-suite tubs. Start at $85,000/week. 954-760-5801.
    Finally, Mariah is in the June 22nd issue of Entertainment Weekly. I had the article/picture in Saturday's update and many thanks to Will for the scan in Gallery 55. Also, thanks to Shantal, Melissa, Chloe and Fntsy824 for some of this magazine information too!

    According to AP-Grupo Reforma (a Mexican news organization) north american singer Mariah Carey will go to Mexico for the premiere of her movie "Glitter" the movie in which she makes her debut in a starring role, as well as the name of her next album. She will be promoting her album in late October or early November.

    Mexico City, MEXICO
    La Reforma, June 12, 2001

    Singer Mariah Carey will visit Mexico in October or November as part of her promotional tour for her album and movie, both titled "Glitter" . The cd is her first with her new record company "Virgin."

    The exact date hasn't been set, as the singer's schedule has not been confirmed. After signing the most lucrative contract in record history, about 20 million dollars for each album with Virgin Records, Carey will premiere her cd in August.  The album is also the soundtrack for the movie, in which for the first time she'll play the starring role.

    In her newest work, Luis Miguel's girlfriend was accompanied by a select group of musicians and co-producers, although the majority of the work was written and produced by Mariah Carey herself. The record will include ballads as well as uptempo/dance songs.

    The first single off of the new album is "Loverboy" which has already received radioplay since the beginning of June. The cut was inspired by "Candy" , an 1980's hit for the group Cameo. Carey not only "sampled" the song, but included new material. Larry Blackmon and Thomas Jenkins, from the original "Cameo" worked with the 31-year old singer (Carey) on the pop version of the song, mixed by DJ Clark Kent. Carey also sang a remix produced by David Morales and MJ Cole, with rap by Ludicris and Da Brat.

    The video for Loverboy was recently filmed in Los Angeles, CA under the direction of famed phorographer David LaChappelle.

    Carey has achieved record sales of more than 150 million albums and singles worldwide. She's received 84 gold, platinum and multiplatinum records, and she has surpassed the Beatles as the artist with the most number of weeks in the top spot of the charts in the USA.

    With her  previous album "Rainbow" Carey earned the distinction of having a number one hit in every year during the 1990's. At the Billboard 1999 Awards, the native of Long Island New York  received the award for Artist of the Decade, and at last year's World Music Awards in Monaco, she was honored as the "Artist of the Millenium" with most records sold.

    MARIAH CAREY - 150 MILLION SOLD... AND COUNTING
    A spokesperson for Mariah's record company (Virgin) told the press that Mariah Carey, girlfriend of Mexican star Luis Miguel, will visit Mexico in order to promote her new movie and album, both entitled "Glitter" . The exact date will be set once her promotional schedule has been confirmed.

    This will be her second  visit to Mexico City, last year she visited this country as part of her promotion for "Rainbow", which was her last recording for Sony Records.

    Viviana Guzman stated that the new album from the singer who interpreted "Without You" will debut sometime in August, although a short promo for the first single "Loverboy" has already been heard on the radio.

    "Loverboy" is a new version of the 80's hit "Candy" by Cameo, who also participated in the remake of the song.

    Honored in 1999 as the "Artist of the Decade" by Billboard, and "Artist of the Millenium" at the 2000 World Music Awards, Carey worked as both songwriter and producer for most the material on her new album, Guzman further explained

    New book in September 2001
    Leo told me that there is a new book by Judy Parker coming out in Sept. 2001 from Children's Press. You can check it out at Barnes and Nobles website!

    Loverboy moves from #20 to #17
    RML612 told me that Loverboy moved from #20 to #17 this week on VH1's Top 20 Countdown!!

    Mariah Coming to Spain on July 10th
    Javier told me that he heard that Mariah will be in Spain on July 10th, after being in Paris from July 2-5th. Also, Mariah will be performing Loverboy on a famous Spanish music program called "Musica Si."

    FANBOOK URGENT!
    If you get this on Monday morning in time you can try and send Joey a letter for Mariah. He is taking it to her later today at TRL studios and he gave her one a week ago at the BET studios! So make sure you send him your letters ASAP so he can get them to Miss M. lljoe143@hotmail.com

    Note from a DJ
    Billy works for a radio station and he recently contacted me telling me that the reason why Loverboy hasn't the reason Loverboy hasn't done super great yet is because it really isn't suppose to hit radio until this Monday and that is a main reason why she is appearing on TRL. They expect 3,000 adds this week with her new single and many different formats for the radio, even bigger than Janet's!

    So, yes Loverboy has been doing great so far but it seems that it might get even bigger this week and more and more radio stations should be playing it hopefully

    Hit Songwriter Doesn't Miss a Thing
    Hit songwriter Diane Warren has been nominated for a number of Oscars but has lost each time she's been up for the award. Her main competitor has usually been that year's animated Disney film. So this year, Warren figured out a way, maybe, to win: If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Even though James Newton Howard wrote the score to Disney's new movie Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Warren is listed as a co-writer on the title track sung by Mya called "Where the Dream Takes You."

    The news has startled people in the close-knit world of commercial songwriting (this is the David Foster-Albert Hammond-Desmond Child galaxy).

    "Diane never co-authors a song with other composers, just recording artists like Roy Orbison, Mariah Carey and Michael Bolton. She doesn't like to share the royalties. And she doesn't even like Howard," a source in the music biz told me.

    Warren — who's being honored tonight by the ASCAP Songwriters Hall of Fame — may write all kinds of sappy love songs for sappy singers like Celine Dion and Mariah Carey, but her own world is an unhappy one, according to sources.

    Warren is considered a pussy cat by some, but quite aggressive about getting credit and royalties. In one anecdote I heard this week, she called Barbara Orbison — widow of legendary singer Roy Orbison — and told her she was taking his name off songs she'd co-written with him because he was dead. Barbara Orbison, of course, refused to comply. The credit remains and Warren has to split the spoils.

    And the rewards are huge. She employs 12 people or more at her home, all of whom are supposed to be making sure her songs are recorded and re-recorded in order to bring in dough.

    Warren has written hit songs for several movies, most of them produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, including those for Coyote Ugly, Con Air, The Rock, Armageddon, and Pearl Harbor.

    Meantime, absent from Wednesday's proceedings will be one of Warren's few collaborators, Steve Angelica, who co-wrote several songs with her early in Warren's career. He is said to be working for a limousine company in Los Angeles these days.

    Thanks to Susana for this information!

    New Glitter Script information
    Check out Project Glitter for another scene from the Glitter script which Danielle added yesterday!

    Mariah in Australian newspaper
    Claire sent me the following article taken from the Sunday Telegraph in Sydney.

    Mariah Carey is a new Virgin.  Recording artist, that is.  The superstar diva, who remains most unimpressed with Jennifer Lopez, claiming her crown, returns to the airwaves next month with a new single, Loverboy. Carey's new album, Glitter, will also be the soundtrack for her film debut in the movie of the same name. Once again, Carey is working with some bad-boy rappers and hip-hoppers to keep her cred in the urban camp, with Da Brat and Ludacris also featuring in the single's video.

    Loverboy features a loop from the 1986 Cameo hit Candy - for which Carey bought the exclusive rights, to prevent others in the rap community ripping it off and releasing it before she did so herself. Carey's mega-deal with Virgin will reportedly earn her as much as $US25 million an album.

    Mariah in Australian newspaper
    Alexander, from Mariah 4 Life, gave Mariah Daily a lovely award and here it is...

    Do You Hear What I Hear? It's Loverboy
    Here is how Loverboy is doing around the world and how you can help!

  • Billy:
    first off i would like to say that I love your site! Secondly, I would like to report how Loverboy is doing on the radio stations from the Fresno/Bakersfield, California area. Well just a few minutes ago I was in the car and I was listening to B95 out of Fresno, and of course, Loverboy was on! I was so happy! Then I quickly switched to see what was on Q97 which is also out of Fresno and Loverboy was also on that one! I was so excited. I knew it would be on the other major station Kiss94.1 from Bakersfield, and guess what?! Loverboy was on that one as well! It was cool having Loverboy be on the 3 major pop/r&b stations in the Central Valley of Cali! I didn't know which one to listen to!!!
  • Jason
    Hey there all you lambs! (Especially the ones in Arizona!) I reported about three weeks ago that nobody was playing Mariah's new song, "Loverboy" on the radio in Arizona. Well, phone call after phone call, email after email, one station is FINALLY playing "Loverboy"! That station is 102.9 (The Q) and is distributed throughout northern Arizona in over 20 cities! They are known for playing "today's hottest hit music" and I finally convinced them to get Mariah on the air. They were reluctant at first and said the song was stupid, corny, and did not deserve a spot on the air. Man were they wrong! They play it a lot now and have received several requests and compliments just for "Loverboy". I am so excited for Mariah! Also, before they play it, they have an intro that goes a little something like this...."We here at the Q asked you what you wanted more of and you said more fresh music, well, here ya go! Another fresh jam that you'll only hear on today's hottest hit music station, The Q". Cool huh?! Thanks to all of Mariah's AZ fans for helping me out in MC's time of need!
      Luv to tha lambs~

  • TEXHALFBREED
    We finally got some Loverboy in Texas.  I'm not sure if it's the Houston station on your list of request.  It's Hot97.1.  It's a really great station even if they didn't play Loverboy last night when I requested it.  I heard it early this morning and again at Lunch.  They have a top 5 once a week and Loverboy was not on it.  The DJ's on the morning and lunch program where really talking it up about Mariah and how this song was a great, and fun summer song to keep you moving.  So maybe the DJ during the night show will play it more.  There is also a small note about stars that like to charter yacht's in the July In Style.  Below is what it says about Mariah. I included the phone number of where to call just in case some of MC's fans would like to call and charter the same yacht as MC/LM.  Hee..hee.

    Loverboy #8 on TRL/#8 on BET

    MariahCarey.com Updates
    Check out MariahCarey.com for a new voice message and new information in the NEWS section. You can check out the audio section and Mariah Transcripts page for the new voice message on this site and here is the transcript, courtesy of Will.

    Hi [High octave]. Hi Lambs. Listen, I'm calling in a rush from the movie set and everything is good. I just wanted to say that I hope everybody knows about the fact that I'm going to be on TRL, live on Monday. We're giving away this car – the actual little purple car from the video. And the other day when I called TRL, I was like in the middle of a scene that had nothing to do with calling TRL, so I don't know if I really was coherent enough. But anyway, I love you, I enjoy you, I thank you much and I can not wait to give you guys this album because I'm so excited about it. And I will holler later. Bye.
    So we all get free copies of the new Glitter soundtrack because Mariah can't wait to give it to us!! Just kidding, moving along, the NEWS section has also been updated and Mariah Daily was mentioned twice and also Project Glitter, sister site to Mariah Daily, was also mentioned!! Check it all out below...
    Fans speak out about Loverboy
    What do fans think of Loverboy? Most of them like it lots! 2200 people voted in a survey at the popular site Mariah Carey Archives and 70% of the voters said the song was great! At another popular site, Mariah Daily, people have voted Loverboy as their second favorite "first single" from a Mariah album ever, being beaten only by the fabulous Fantasy single! Here is what a few Mariah fans/friends/lambs/chops say about Loverboy:

    MC_Rulz/Liron:
    I haven't decided which is better! The original or the remix because they both ROCK!!I looooooooooooooooooove the Candy sample, it completely and totally rocks! The whole song totally has the 80s theme and I think it's perfect for a first single! When I first heard about it being with 4 rappers, I thought "where is MC gonna be?" but she has proven me wrong! It's divided wonderfully and there's enough place for her! The rap is awesome! The whole song has such a great beat and makes you wanna go out the streets and sing loverboy outloud! The video freaking RULES!!!!!!!!! I completely love it!!!!!!! It's a PARTY, C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-I-O-N!!!!! And that's totally what it looks like! LOTS OF FUN, JOY, HAPPINESS!!!! MC is smiling!!!! Life is just GREAT!!!!!!!!! It's fun, it's sexy, refreshing, it's summerish, it puts me in such a great mood everytime I see it!!!! THANK YOU MARIAH FOR A GREAT RELEASE!

    Nacho:
    I don´t know what part of the video I love the most. IS it the fact that Mariah is lookin´ gorgeous on top of an awesome car? Or the fact that Mariah´s having fun and she looks ever MORE gorgeous? No seriosly, the video is tite! The song is sooo cool and everything in the video is 80´s lookin´ and Mariah looks STELLAR! The race between Brat and 22 VS Shawna and Ludacrist=VERY SMART!

    LiLMariah:
    I like it, and she does look happier, just the other day while i waz listening to my Mariah, (everyday while i get ready to go somewhere) i waz thinkin, wha happened to her, cuz she hasn`t had a big hit out, then that same day i seen her world premire, and i waz like YIPPIE she has a new song i can sing to!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    MCglitterzzz:
    I love the video, and its just so happy! really reflecting how she's feeling right now...and she just wants to have fun and i'm so happy for her! love the positive attitude!!

    Ludacris making good money
    How did Ludacris like working with Mariah on Loverboy? This is what he tells BBC radio about it:
    She called me in to do a record with her. I think when somebody collaborates with Mariah Carey they've pretty much made it in the industry. I feel so great about it - plus it's good money!

    Mariah talking about Glitter
    Our favourite Glittergirl was on TV-channel Much Music and spoke about Glitter and the songs in the movie: Certain songs from this movie were written to enhance the scene like through Billie's point of view, like there's a song - I always call "Care Enough", but everyone's calling it "Reflection" because that's the first line I sing in the song. And she's sort of asking the question "did you ever really care about me?" to her mom cause she starts, like, thinking about it as we see her, you know, evolve in the movie. And so there are lines in the song like "if I'm not quite good enough or somehow undeserving of a mother's love". That would never have come out of my mouth 'cause my momma loves me! But, you know, there's a different approach in writing these songs.

    There's a lot of ballads on the record because I wrote them to kind of enhance certain scenes, but then there are a lot of party records that are, you know, with DJ Clue screaming at you and stuff like that.

    Thanks to Mariah Daily for Much Music information.

    MTV TRL
    Mariah called in to MTV TRL on Wednesday. She called in from Canada, from the set of her new movie, and chatted about Glitter and Loverboy. She said she really wanted everyone to request the video!

    Entertainment Weekly Reviews Loverboy
    BubbleSnow sent me the following review from Entertainment Weekly and it's not pretty. The picture featured in the article is the one to the right!

    MARIAH CAREY- Loverboy
    (Virgin) Carey's on a new label and in a new movie (All that Glitters), but it's the same ol' sound on this amusingly derivative single.  There's a sampled '80's hook (Cameo's "Candy"), breathy mumbles, and a gang of rap guests (Ludacris, Da Brat, Twenty II and Shawnna) on the accompanying remix.  The only unexpected thing is when the ex-Mrs. Tommy Mottola sings "I want a sugar daddy." Didn't she get rid of one?

    Here is what Ashes told me:
    Columbia Tristar confirmed today that the scheduled release of All that Glitters is 09/11/01 in the UK. Trailers for the movie will be out at the beginning of September.

    As you notice fox is not distributing in the UK, so you will need to ring your local fox office to see who has bought the rights.

    Da Brat Receives Probation For Throwing Tantrum
    Hip hop star Da Brat struck a plea with Atlanta prosecutors on Monday that allowed her to avoid any jail time for allegedly beating a woman at a Buckhead nightclub. Da Brat, whose real name is Shawntae Harris, was ordered to serve 80 hours of community service, be on probation for 12 months and pay a $1,000 fine, said Erik Friedly, spokesman for the Fulton County district attorney's office. Also, the rapper's felony aggravated assault charge was reduced to misdemeanor reckless conduct in exchange for her pleading guilty. Da Brat allegedly pistol-whipped Rezue Robateue at the Chili Pepper nightclub in Buckhead on March 8, 2000. According to police, the rapper beat Robateue for sitting in the VIP lounge and not leaving when Harris' followers told Robateue to leave. The beating left Robateue with a cut on her face that required three stitches.

    In related news, Da Brat will be starring alongside Mariah Carey in the forthcoming film Glitter. The film will center around a young singer (Carey) who grew up in the projects and lands a record deal. The film will also feature Terrance Howard, Dorian Harewood and Eric Benet. Da Brat is also featured on Destiny's Child's "Survivor" remix which hit stores on Tuesday as part of the Carmen Hip Hopera soundtrack.

One Mariah fan wrote me upset about what was said about Janet Jackson yesterday and I will post their response below as anonymous...

    I love mariah, but i am very very upset with that guy who wrote that letter thingy to that radio station, can you say hypocrit, we are not here as mariah fans to bash janet jackson, janet is a respectable artist asis mariah.  So I as a mariah fan and many others I have talked to want that e-mail letter trash removed from the website, cause we are here to celebrate all artists and not bash or get upset at what one radio station has to say.....stop the janet bashing....thanks   love ya

    El Gordo Y La Flaca
    Here is what Charley told me:
    So I was up at around 2 am watching "El Gordo y La Flaca" and they said that Mariah already had plans to return to Mexico D.F. to promote her first movie "Glitter".  They also talked about the other places Mariah has visited like Acapulco, Cancun, and Cabo San Lucas.  They argued about the pronunciation of her name "Mariah Carey" or "Maria Car-ey" they finally agreed on the first one.  Then the inevitable, on a Spanish talk show mentioning Mariah, happened they started talking about Thalia and how they look alike, comparing pictures and significant others. You know how Thalia dated Luis Miguel and Mariah was married to Tommy and then they switched. Anyway in the end La Flaca said that they should stop and that she didn't understand because the two women were nothing alike. 

    Attentions Filipino fans
    This is from Tonton:

    Below you will read about Jason's story:

  • They Dissed Mariah!
    I almost fell over when I heard what Im about to tell you.  I was listening to a radio station this morning and they were dissing Mariah like you would not believe.  They were saying things like, "compared to Janet Jackson, Mariah is cheap."  "Mariah's new video is lame and all she does is touch herself and she hardly sings."  "She is fat and you can tell in her new video she is holding in her stomach and she is trying to be like britny and all the younger girls"  Well I was so pissed by this that I wrote them a nice letter.  I am gonna send you a copy of the letter I sent and you can post it if you like so all the fans can see that I stuck up for MC.  The radio station I was listening to was Mix98.5 in Boston here are the call letter and phone numbers....

    Thanks Jason :) from providence
  • Jason Fights Back By E-mailing the Following Letter!
    I was listening to your radio show this morning for the first time on the way to work and I have to say I am not happy at all.  I was really enjoying the show until you guys got on the subject of Mariah Carey. I think that it was very mean and cruel what you said about her.  Just for and example you compared her with Janet Jackson and said that even though Janet was sexual she is'nt cheap like Mariah, well have you heard her new album yet?  Janet makes Mariah look like a saint, for example in one of Janets new songs which im sure some 8 year old girl will listen to, she say..." I want you to cum inside me, I want you to F*** me."  and in another song she says the word "Motherf***" like 10 times, and MTV had the nerve to call her and ICON.  Anyway, if you knew half of the stuff Mariah did for her fans and for kids that are less fortunate, have you ever heard of "Camp Mariah".  I know that there is something called freedom of speach but there is a tasteful way of doing it. You people don't even know Mariah, her music has inspired so many people, one of her songs helped me through a very hard time in my life, but you arn't worth telling it to.  I mean you radio dj's truely amaze me, you sit behind your little mic's a nd dis artist after artist, and the funny thing is, is that they are where they are and you guys are behind a mic dissing them only because your 'talent' was only big enough to get you to local radio and your very bitter about that.  And as far as Mariah being cheap or desperate for another single or being washed up or whatever it was that you guys said I think it is horrible and very very disrespectful of you to talk about her like that when you don't even know her.  Its very hard to be in the music industry today, especially if you have been around as long as Mariah and there are new people coming out that you have to compete with.  I think that you should think a little more about what you say and think about how much it would hurt the people you say it about, or is that what you want, would it make you feel good to hurt them, so you could feel better about your own pathetic lives.  I think that you owe Mariah and all her fans that were listening to your show today a big apology.

  • Checkered Past
    Mariah Carey on the set of her new movie 'Glitter,' directed by Vondie Curtis-Hall, who also directed Tupac Shakur in 'Gridlock'd.'
    Mariah Fun Fact:
    She wasn't always a diva. Before becoming a star, Mariah worked as a waitress, a hostess and a hat checker.
  • Places, Everyone
    Though she's used to singing solo, Mariah shares the screen in her new movie 'Glitter' with Da Brat, Eric Benét and Max Beesley. The movie was filmed in Toronto and New York.
    Mariah Fun Fact:
    Mariah has a five-octave vocal range.
  • Piece of Cake
    Though 'Glitter' is her first movie, Mariah had little problem finding her voice on camera as an actress. Co-star Max Beesley called her acting debut very emotional.
    Mariah Fun Fact:
    Mariah's the only artist to have had a #1 hit for every year of the 1990s.
  • Take Five
    Filming 'Glitter' left Mariah with little time to lounge. Not only did she star in the film, but she also recorded the movie's soundtrack, 'All That Glitters.'
    Mariah Fun Fact:
    'Loverboy,' the first single from 'All That Glitters,' was accidentally leaked to the public on 6/1.

    Here is the article about Mariah...

    After capturing headlines around the world with the news of her signing a record-breaking contract with Virgin Records, Mariah Carey just announced she will release Glitter, her eagerly-awaited Virgin Records debut album, in August of this year.

    For Glitter, which is also the title soundtrack to her movie set in the early 80's, Mariah has enlisted a stellar lineup of co-producers and guest artists, and has also written and produced some of her best ballads to date. The first single from Glitter will be Loverboy, due to hit radio in early June. The song features a hook from Cameo's 1985 smash hit, "Candy." Rather than sampling the original, Mariah went one step further and enlisted Cameo's own Larry Blackmon and Thomas Jenkins to aid in the remake. The song, co-produced by DJ Clark Kent, also features rappers Ludacris and Da Brat, and has been remixed by producers David Morales and MJ Cole.

    The video for Loverboy was shot recently in Los Angeles, CA by acclaimed photographer / director David Lachapelle. The star-studded visual features cameos by Da Brat , Ludacris and Cameo, who take to the motor speedway for a never-before-seen adventure on wheels. "Loverboy" is just one of the new songs on Glitter, the latest of album by Mariah Carey, who is unquestionably one of the most successful female singers of all time.

    Mariah Carey has sold more than 150 million albums and singles worldwide, and has earned an incredible 84 RIAA gold, platinum and multi-platinum certifications. Her incredible career began with the release of her first album, the self-titled Mariah Carey, in 1990, which produced four Number One singles, and she has continued to make history with each release. "Heartbreaker," the first single from her last album Rainbow, made music history on September 29, 1999, when it became Mariah's 14th Number One single on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart. This feat is rivaled only by the Beatles (with 20) and Elvis Presley (with 17 or 18, depending on whether one counts "Don't Be Cruel" b/w "Hound Dog" as one or two records). Her songs have held the Number One position for a record-setting 61 weeks, 16 of those with "One Sweet Day," her duet with Boyz II Men, another record-setting accomplishment. She has had a Number One hit with every initial single release from each of her albums-four of which have gone to Number One, and all of which have also gone Top Five-and she has had a Number One single every year for the last ten consecutive years. In total, Carey has had fifteen Number One songs to date, more than any other female artist ever. At the 1999 ceremonies, Billboard appropriately named Mariah their "Artist of the Decade," and the World Music Awards titled her the "Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium" at the 2000 ceremonies."

    Mariah Carey heads to speedway for new video
    (Launch) - Mariah Carey recently shot the video for "Loverboy," the first single from the soundtrack to her new movie, "All That Glitters." Photographer David LaChapelle directed the video, which features scenes taken from a high velocity motor-speedway adventure. Da Brat, Ludacris and Cameo make appearances in the video as well as on the track. "Loverboy" was produced by DJ Clark Kent and has been remixed by David Morales and MJ Cole. The "All That Glitters" soundtrack is due out Aug. 21. The movie is based on the experiences of a young woman (Carey) who dates a New York hip-hop DJ in the early '80s, with the hopes of jumpstarting her career. The film, scheduled to open at the end of the summer, was directed by Vondie Curtis-Hall and also stars Eric Benet, Kyle Thrash and Chris Tessaro

    Loverboy #79 on Billboard

Also, it will go form #62 to #44 on the R&B Chart for week ending June 23rd. So, this is pretty good, considering the fact that the song has been on radio for about 2 weeks. Keep requesting the song on your radio stations and by the time the single comes out on July 17th, we should have it close to #1 already.

    Mariah calls into TRL today
    Make sure you tune into TRL today because a few people told me that Carson said yesterday that Mariah would be calling in. Plus, Tom told me that today, they will show the first male contestant for Mariah's prize, which includes the blue car, limo ride to the Glitter premiere and then to hang with MC at the premiere. Then on Thursday and Friday, they will show two others!

    Tom, went to TRL and here is more from him:
    I just got back from TRL studios.  I'll try to make this short- Got there at 5:30'ish and supposedly you were supposed to wait outside, long story short - I didn't get in until 7:10.  There were two guys who had also been waiting out for a while and I think one of them knew the girl who was organizing it and they pointed me out. We went upstairs to an MTV conference room, filled out name, phone #, age, and why we like Mariah.  Then, they took a video - we had to say our name, age, where from - then she asked - What's your favorite MC song, have you ever been to a concert, how would you describe Mariah in 3 words (I said "Complete, total, mess"), when did you first become a fan, and I think one other question and they wanted you to end by screaming "pick me!", but unfortunately I'm really mellow and not outgoing and I'm almost 27 yrs. old so I doubt I'll get picked. Their staff is reviewing the tapes (40 guys showed up) and will notify the 3 Tues. morning.  She said that on Wed., Thurs., and Fri.  each contestant will be on TRL and Carson will quickly introduce/ask a few ?'s, then on Monday Mariah will be there, they may ask Mariah a few questions, but have the contestants say how they think Mariah will answer.  The winner gets the blue car, limo ride to premier, and I guess hang out at the premier, although I'm sure Mariah will be totally busy at it. Oh yea, the winner gets picked on Monday when they'll pick a random caller and they'll decide which of they 3 guys they think deserves it.

    #15 on TRL
    Loverboy was #15 on the close calls of TRL's countdown yesterday. So, we are getting close. PLEASE request Mariah's Loverboy on TRL!! It takes a matter of moments and she will be on the show Monday and we want her video on the countdown!! It would be so cool if it was. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE vote. Plus, spread the word and webmasters, get the banners up o your site! Thanks to Lauren and Chris for telling me about this.

    EXCLUSIVE....Interview on Much Music (new song info)
    Elizabeth saw an interview of Mariah on Much Music in Canada with George Stroumboulopoulous, one of the VJ's (wow that is a long last name). She missed the beginning of the interview but typed out everything she saw. Mariah mentioned a new song title on the Glitter soundtrack, which is really cool too. Here it is...:

    (MC is sitting cross-legged on a couch with George (I have no idea where or which city they are in).  She's wearing grey shorts and a grey tank that says Candy. Her hair is really blonde, and she's also wearing a gold necklace but I couldn't make out what the charm on the end said.  The interview is interrupted several times by showing clips from Mariah's previous music videos - I tried to show that when I wrote it out. Anyway, here's what I got from the interview!)

    Mariah: "...I'm filming another movie actually in Halifax with Mira Sorvino and Melora Walters, and it's a movie from Staten Island, doing some things we don't even talk about over there (said in a N.Y accent).

    Mariah (talking about Glitter): "It's set in the early 80's in like the club scene and what was going on at that point.  And the girl, my character's name is Billie, and she grows up in a foster home, and like her whole, her whole character is trying to figure out how her mom didn't come back for her.  So (little girl voice) I don'thave that issue! (laugh) 'Cause my mom pages me every five minutes or calls me with jokes.

    George: That's my girl.

    Mariah: Hey, you know.

    Mariah: Certain, um, songs from this movie were written to enhance the scene like through Billie's point of view, like there's a song - I always call "Care Enough", but everyone's calling it "Reflection" because that's the first line I sing in the song.  And, um, she's sort of asking the question "did you ever really care about me?" to here mom cause she starts, like, thinking about it as we see her, you know, evolve in the movie..whatever.. And so there are lines in the song like "if I'm not quite good enough or somehow undeserving of a mother's love".  That would never have come out of my mouth 'cause ma momma loooves me. But, you know, there's a different approach in writing these songs.

    Mariah: There's a lot of ballads on the record because I wrote them to kind of enhance certain scenes, but then there are a lot of party records that are, you know, with DJ Clue screaming at you and stuff like that. So people that buy the album for a ballad might not understand that, so I had to really take time and figure out how to sequence it, what to do, and do little, like um, segways and interludes and then somethings that um....I need them to give me my copy, so Louise if you're listening......So..I'm excited about it.

    Mariah:  This thing with the hand (flutters hand) that gets parodied all the time is like a facial tick. It's not like a choreographed move (laugh).

    George: It's natural.

    Mariah: And yet some people have it as though it's a choreographed move. It's something that I just have a problem - I do it in the studio or whatever.  So when I went to do - to be Billie the performer, it was like, that was the most challenging thing. It wasn't the acting, it was how do I not use my hand when I'm singing?

    Mariah Carey Sparkles In Glitter
    US superstar announces new single and album

    Following news of her record-breaking contract with Virgin Records, international superstar Mariah Carey has announced that her eagerly awaited new album 'Glitter', the soundtrack to her movie debut of the same name, will be released in August.

    The first single from the album, the funky 'Loverboy', features a hook from Cameo's 1985 smash hit, 'Candy' which is one of the American diva's favourite songs. Mariah enlisted Cameo's own Larry Blackmon and Thomas Jenkins to aid in the remake which also features rappers Ludacris and Da Brat.

    Cameo also makes an appearance in the video, directed by acclaimed photographer David Lachapelle, which sees the sexy diva taking to the motorway for a never-before-seen adventure on wheels!

    'Glitter' is Mariah's first album of new material since 1999's 'Rainbow' and features songs from the singer's semi-autobiographical film debut set in the 1980's. The movie co-stars Mel B's boyfriend, Max Beasley.

    'The uptempo songs are aggressive and hot and represent that spirit of the '80s,' Mariah reveals.'But I also have a lot of guest artists that really make it hot and contemporary. The ballads are also these deep, emotional, intense songs that would stand on their own as a regular album from me.'

    Since her debut in 1990 with 'Vision Of Love', Mariah Carey has sold an amazing 130 million albums and scored 15 No.1 singles on the US Billboard Chart, more than any other female singer.

    Red Haute Mama
    Mariah Carey makes like Mae West at New York's Fresh Air Fund Salutes in a snug crimson sheath dress by Vera Wang. No glitzy jewelry or fussy curls detract from the gown's smooth lines. But the main attraction is the impressive support system going on underneath. Take that, mean old Mr. Gravity!

    Mswati asks for help
    MBABANE, June 12 (AFP) - Swazilands rural health centres got a shot in the arm Tuesday when a team of US doctors and nurses promised to provide them with at least 1,000 computers.

    Dr Alex Bowier, the leader of a 36-member team, said the donation was to enable rural centres in the tiny kingdom to have up-to-date data on their patients and communicate with the nation's hospitals.

    US technicians would assist Swaziland in installing the computers, expected in the next two months.

    Swazi King Mswati III went to the United States at the end of May to meet with a team of US professionals to discuss HIV/AIDS.

    The professionals, part of an organisation called Project Africa Enterprise, have been in the country for two weeks to assess HIV/AIDS in Swaziland.

    Mswati is in the United States again this week to ask leading musicians in the United States to help raise funds for Africas AIDS orphans.

    Swaziland, with a population of about one million, has about 43,000 children orphaned by AIDS and 200,000 adults infected with HIV.

    Mswati has approached US artists such as Jay-Z, Mariah Carey and Isaac Hayes to compose music for an album whose proceeds will go into a fund for AIDS orphans.

  • Interactive 9 at 9  
    This is the link to Z100's interactive daily countdown.  Z100 is one of the most popular radio stations here in NYC.  It can be an effective way to introduce the song to radio listeners.  Of course requests during the daytime are very important too, but since I haven't heard the station mention anything or play anything, this could be an good way of getting her on the radio here.  

    Da Brat Receives Probation, Community Service For Atlanta Assault
    Rapper Da Brat received 12 months probation, a $1000 fine, and 80 hours of community service on Monday (June 11) in Atlanta for a March 2000 incident in which she pistol-whipped another woman at a Buckhead area nightclub (allstar, March 9, 2000), according to a spokesperson for the Fulton County District Attorney's office.

    Da Brat -- real name Shawntae Harris -- struck a deal with prosecutors, lowering her charge of felony "aggravated assault" to misdemeanor "reckless conduct" in exchange for pleading guilty in the incident. Harris avoided possible jail time as a result.

    According to police, Harris pistol-whipped a woman in the VIP lounge at the Chili Peppers nightclub after the woman refused to leave at the request of Harris and her entourage. The woman, identified as Rezue Robateue, suffered cuts on her face and received several stitches in her head as a result of the incident.

Thanks to Eva for this information and hopefully in the next day or so, I will have the translation of the article featured on the page and another article translated for this site from Reforma.

    Glitter Gathering
    Do you live in Sacramento CA and would like to attend the Glitter Gathering? Well then check out Saturn's site by clicking here.

    Do you heard what I hear? It's Loverboy
    Here is some news from fellow fans on how Loverboy is doing on their local radio stations:

  • RML:
    I know that we are all down about Mariah not making the countdown on TRL but I do have good news as far as the radio goes. Z95.7 in CA started a TOP 10 most requested songs and Mariah was at #7! Janet Jackson new song "Who wants to become my Lover" was #10. This is just my opinion but when it comes to airplay Mariah is really has no competition now and they are playing Mariah more than Janet, Destiny Child, and even Nsync! Nsync song has yet to go into the Top ten on the Billboard charts and a year ago that would not be an issue. Anyhow, I would like to thank you again for all of your hard work because I certainly appreciate it!
  • Andrea:
    Hey this is some cool news...our radio station here in Illinois (Q96) does a countdown every night for the 5 most requested songs of the day...well Loverboy the remix was #4.  Tonight was the first time it was on the countdown.  It's been getting played a lot here!Andi
  • Crunk:
    Please tell everyone on your site to vote for our Mariah on my radio station here in Toronto Canada!!! Thanks! here's the link:

    Note from Regina on Loverboy
    A lot of you have been e-mailing me about your concerns and also, I read a lot of posts on different messageboards I visit everyday. It seems some of you are not happy with Loverboy as a single, all together. Some of you express how the rap really bothers you and you don't like how Mariah deals with the rappers. Others say you don't like the video or how Mariah keeps wearing skimpier clothing everytime she comes out. And even, some of you worry about it's success on the radio, more than anything. If you would like to read my comments or post your own about this complete and total mess, please check out the messageboard! and hopefully we can figure out a solution to this mess.

    Bad News...
    Loverboy didn't even make it into the Top 10 on MTV's hit show TRL. TRL really has a huge impact on making songs huge hits, as Mariah told me herself last year. So it's REALLY important that we all vote for her on TRL!! She needs out help and we can do it; it only takes a few minutes out of your time. SO PLEASE, go vote!!! We need to get her on the countdown, even if it's only #10 or #9!! Click the TRL banner below.


    Plus, vote for Mariah on BET's 106&Park, the show she appeared on last week. It's a pretty popular R&B show and would also help get Loverboy to #1!! Click the link below!
    Vote for MC on BET!

    Win a date with Mariah to the Glitter Premiere
    ButtterfIi told me that not only does the lucky winner of Mariah's contest on MTV get the car from the Loverboy set, but he also gets to go with Mariah to the Glitter premiere. Sadly, only guys can enter this contest, which is REALLY uncool, in my opinion. Make sure you tune in Friday to see who wins this awesome prize.

    EXCLUSIVE..."It's Just The Way!"
    The song that Eric Benet and Mariah Carey will be singing together in the Glitter movie is called, "It's Just The Way." Mariah and Jimmy Jam/Terry Lewis wrote the song for the soundtrack and Eric says it's a cool song. Plus, Eric wrote a song called, "We Could Have Been" for the movie but he said it's not featured on the soundtrack.

    In the movie, Eric plays a producer/songwriter who works with Billie later in her career. It was his first acting role in a movie and he said that Mariah just called him up one night and asked him if he wanted to be in it. Thanks to John for this information and you can watch Eric Benet talking about all this at True Eric Benet Fans

    How Mariah Escaped Sony
    Mariah is in the June 18th issue of TIME magazine and here is the article, courtesy of Tom (should have the scan of the picture tomorrow)...

    Forget Jack Welch. The best still unwritten business book may come from the pen of Mariah Carey. After her 1998 divorce from Sony Music boss Tommy Mottola, Carey--the top-selling female singer of all time, with 140 million units sold worldwide--made it clear she wanted out of her contract. She got her wish in April, with an unlikely assist from Jennifer Lopez. In January, a snippet of music Carey had licensed for herself mysteriously appeared on Lopez's J. Lo album, also released by Sony. In the world of music divas, such double dealing can feel like a slap in the face. Carey shrewdly used the Lopez fracas to turn the heat up on Sony and speed her exit. Both sides insist that it is "not true" that the dispute caused Carey's release, but it certainly didn't hurt. Despite owing Sony another album, Carey was granted her freedom--and promptly signed a megadeal with competitor Virgin.

    Billboard SLAMS Loverboy
    Warning, this is NOT a nice review. *sigh* Thanks to Tom for this article...

    MARIAH CAREY ``Loverboy''
    @Virgin Records America

    It may have a title   and it contains the requisite sample that Mariah Carey's lead-off singles traditionally do   but that hardly makes ``Loverboy'' a song. The first single from the upcoming soundtrack to her film debut, All That Glitters   and her bow for Virgin Records   lifts the melody line from Cameo's 1987 top 40 hit ``Candy'' and plops a random series of sounds, shout-outs (including Cameo guesting), and swirling harmonies overtop. The result is bewildering, devoid of a hook. A remix on the promo single that includes Da Brat and Ludacris at least puts some action atop the beat, but still, the self-produced record comes out as a mumbo jumbo of disparate elements. A new project from one of music's most beloved and consistent cross-format stars is always an event, and radio will likely expose the track to the masses   but at what price to Carey's reputation and, ultimately, to her longevity? After such a prestigious record of hits for more than a decade, ``Loverboy'' sounds dangerously close to self-sabotage. The mighty may have fallen here.

    Debelah on Mariah
    Here is what WhitneyHouston@uboot.com told me:
    Hi Regina, Deblah Morgan was on Germany's VIVA TV a few minutes ago and they asked her if she has any role models. She said that Mariah Carey is her biggest role model, influence and everything. She admires her, not just because she's the greatest singer on earth, but also because she writes, composes and produces all of her songs. Her biggest wish would be to do a duet with Mariah with all thoses high notes! By the way, when Debelah mentioned Mariah's name, the presenters and the audience started to give a big applause. I thought this was cool :-)

    Internet Rumor. Mariah NOT coming to Perth?
    Katherine contacted me and told me that the article that was posted on the Mariah sites this weekend is not correct. Mariah will not be coming to Perth on June 23rd, but instead Marcia Hines will. The two celebs were mixed up, Katherine tells me and the article, that is false, is below!!

    MARIAH'S DEMANDS ARE CRYSTAL CLEAR
    It'll be One Sweet Day when superstar Mariah Carey comes to Perth on June 23 - for some, at least.

    The singer, who has racked up more No. 1 hits than you can poke a stick at is making a one-off appearance at an invitation only gala affair at Subiaco's The Colonnade.

    The $200-a-head gig will include a bevy of Aussie celebs, including fashion designers Wayne Cooper and Peter Morrissey, saying I'll Be There.

    While Mariah's voice is music to the ears, her demands reportedly match the name of her smash, Whenever You Call.

    Her demands? Pink toilet paper and $400-a-bottle Christal Champagne - drunk through a straw. Or so we've heard.

    She also is a bit touchy about germs and, reportedly, requires a humidifier in every room and once had a bed built into a limo in case she nodded off.

    But when you're a Fantasy, isn't that perfectly normal?

    Request Mariah on TRL/BET
    I hope everyone voted for Mariah on TRL because it really helps get the single up higher on the charts. Mariah has some major competition coming in on Wednesday, when Janet's new video premires. So, make sure you vote/vote/vote for MC!!


    Plus, vote for Mariah on BET's 106NPark, the show she appeared on last week. It's a pretty popular R&B show and would also help get Loverboy to #1!! Click the link below!
    Vote for MC on BET!

    TRL Friday...Prize from Mariah
    Ashley, Careyonmariah, Leo, Casey and Mariahhoney13 all told me that on Friday's TRL show, they will be giving away a prize from Mariah Carey, most likely the car from Loverboy Video. Also, it is still being said that Mariah will appear at TRL on June 18th!! We'll find out if that is true on Friday, when MTV updates their site for next weeks information.

    Glamour Magazine
    I checked out the July issue of Glamour magazine, which I reported about on Saturday's update and inside, there is a small picture of Mariah and it talks about the Glitter Soundtrack/Movie coming out in August. It is a REALLY small article, only one sentence long and it just has Mariah with her new blonde hair, nothing really new. I didn't even both buying it myself!! Check it out if you like!

    E-mailing Coming Back
    On the Request MC page, I removed all the e-mail links to the DJ's because when Can't Take That Away came out, last year, some Mariah fans mass e-mailed the DJ's, creating a negative feedback from them. They, in return, did not play Mariah's song and got angry. So, I was told that it is actually a good idea from someone and decided to bring them back on the request page. Please do NOT mass e-mail! Send an e-mail or two a day, spreading everything out because if you do not, you will only hurt the success of Loverboy.

    MARIAH IN CASH JIBE AT JANET PICTURE SPECIAL
    Bust-up ... Mariah Carey
    By NICOLE LAMPERT

    Deputy Bizarre Editor POP diva Mariah Carey has told Virgin Records bosses to stop promoting rival Janet Jackson and spend money on HER career. Insiders say Mariah, 29, the world's biggest selling female singer, feels threatened by labelmate Janet, 35, whose new LP All For You is a worldwide smash. Mariah is desperate to top Janet's success with her new single Loverboy, out in July, and her new LP issued a month later.

    She signed the world's biggest record deal with Virgin in April, pocketing £20MILLION per album - twice what Janet gets. An insider said: "Mariah is also threatened by all the young female stars shooting up like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. She wants to make sure she is still Virgin's No. 1."

    Taken from The Sun and sadly, I lost the information of who sent me this originally!

    Mariah Carey has an encounter of the exotic kind.
    MAYBE SHE WAS JUST researching a few new moves, but I hear that on May 17 MARIAH CAREY and about 20 crew members wandered into Snooky's Bikini Bar in Lancaster, Calif. The sexy star had spent the day shooting "Loverboy", a single from the soundtrack of her big-screen drama Glitter, due in August. Coincidentally, as Carey and her entourage came into the bar, one of the exotic dancers, Sarah Blakley, 23, was shimmying to Carey's '98 hit "My All". Blakley, who is such a fan that she named her daughter after the singer, was thrilled when Carey picked a remix of her song "Heartbreaker" for Blakley to dance to. Carey left after an hour, but not before tipping Blakey $250.

    Thanks to Jen for this article.

    Mariah, Eminem, Eve, Nelly and RUN DMC hang out
    Mariah Carey, Eminem, Eve, Nelly and Run DMC danced and guzzled Veueve Clicquot at NV/289 on Wednesday. They didn't leave till owner Frank Cilione closed the Soho club a little before dawn.

    Mariah on E! News Daily
    This is what Meg told me:
    Sunday morning I was watching Enews Weekend and they had news about MC. They interviewed her from the set of "Loverboy" and she talked a little about her past saying that its over now and she hopes everyone can be nostalgic with the few happy parts but that it remains in the past and she wants to move on. Also she said that she is expecting people to say that 'oh wow she plays a singer in the movie, that not a stretch' and actually she welcomes that b/c people are going to say what they want to say. E also showed a clip from  Glitter that I have never seen before. It was of MC walking out of a building in a pink slip dress, apparently meeting a date who was carrying a rose, thoe I dont know if it was Max Beesly the DJ b/c  they didn't show his face. The whole bit was about 4 mins or so, so if anyone missed it you didn't miss that much.

    Elle Article--The New MC
    April from Stay Awhile sent me the Elle Article, originally from MCWNO. Enjoy...

    A few minutes before midnight Mariah Carey steps out of her black stretch limo. She moves briskly into the dark lobby of Manhattan's Tribeca Grand Hotel, a bodyguard in front, an assistant behind. She is carrying a bushel of roses. She moves across the lobby like a fighter plane: sleek, quick, shiny, and expensive. Her platinum-streaked hair is in a tight ponytail. She's wearing a stiff denim jacket and tight Sergio Velente jeans. Her shoes are open-toes and high-heeled, but they're not slowing her down. The words "time" and "money" come to mind. Her manager (also carrying roses) points me out and Mariah waves, makes a "just one minute" gesture, and disappears into the elevator. The whole episode is like the glint of a diamond bracelet.

    "Let me give you a little warning," Carey says when I walk into her hotel room a few minutes later. Her voice is low and throaty, almost whispery. The room is filled with a quantity of roses not usually seen outside wholesale flower markets. "I'm tired," she says, though she doesn't look it. "And I want you to say when I should be concise, because that fact that I'm exhausted doesn't help in my ramblings."

    "Have you eaten dinner?" I ask. "No. And I haven't eaten breakfast or lunch..." She half-sings the "or," stretches it way out; it's gigantic, hand-on-hips, wide-eyed, room-filling "or." But I do have the remainder of a protein bar," she sighs. "Isn't this glamorous of me?"

    "How's your day been?" I ask. "My day?" she says. "My day has been going on for, like, three days!" She flops on the couch. Her face is made up, eyebrows plucked. There is glitter on her chest. Her shirt is black and sheer - Givenchy - she's got a black halter underneath. She has just returned from a meeting with executives from her new record label, Virgin, where she played them her new album, "Glitter," for the first time. Li! ke many music fans, Virgin purchased Carey's record without knowing what was on it. Unlike many music fans, they're said to have laid out an estimated $23 million - the most ever paid for a single album - for the privilege. "I made this deal without anybody hearing one note of music," she says.

    "Were they worried?" I ask. "Probably," she says, one eyebrow up, as if to say, Wouldn't you be? Carey does not look worried. At thirty-one, over a decade after her debut at age nineteen, she is the godmother of the G-string divas, the Britneys and Christinas and Destiny's Childs for whom self-empowerment and self-exposure are completely entwined and sugar-glossed with a multi-octave range. Mariah's voice, however, is a Howitzer compared to most other singers' water pistols, her not-at-all-secret weapon.

    Virgin is taking a gamble, but it's not irrational: Carey has sold more than 140 million recordings since 1990's "Mariah Carey." She has had fifteen number-one singles, placing her third behind the Beatles (twenty) and Elvis Presley (seventeen or eighteen, depending on whether you count "Don't Be Cruel" b/w "Hound Dog" as one or two records). Her hits have spent more weeks (sixty) at the top than those of anyone else, including the Beatles (fifty-nine). She had a number-one song every year of the '90s, the only recording artist to do so.

    The new record is the soundtrack to next month's "All That Glitters," in which she stars. It's the story of a mixed-race girl who has been abandoned by her white father, taken from her black mom, and raised by foster parents. As a teenager she hangs out in Manhattan clubs, circa 1982, gets discovered by a DJ, galls in love, and becomes and overnight sensation. The affair ends badly; she looks for her lost mother. Which is to say it's about someone with more than a passing resemblance to Carey. Besides doing the ! soundtrack and co-producing the film, M.C. worked with scriptwriter Kate Lanier, who wrote "What's Love got to do with it."

    "I had this idea four years ago," Carey says. "And people said, ''80s? Nobody's ready for '80s.' I said 'I really feel strongly about the '80s, 'cause it's nostalgic.' Some of the executives were concerned that it was too soon, and people weren't ready to go there. And I said "Trust me, they are" According to director Vondie Curtis Hall, "It's a classic Cinderella paradigm, like "Funny Girl." M.C., the hip-hop Barbra Streisand.

    "Most megastars don't have this time or patience to get involved in developing a script," Lanier says. "But Mariah was hanging out in my hotel room, reading pages and giving me input. It blew me away." Lanier says M.C. wasn't at all the person she was expecting. "I was thinking pop. But she wanted to do something dark and edgy. I didn't think she would be that sophisticated or that smart, but she really is."

    All of which suggests that maybe Mariah isn't the bubble-gum pop start with the diva voice, controlled by a behind-the-scenes mastermind, which, to be honest, is how I'd vaguely though of her. Today's pop culture is so heavily marketed, it's hard to imagine someone like M.C. without a Svengali pulling strings. And though she was launched by Sony Music CEO Tommy Mottola, whom she famously married in 1993 and famously divorced in '97, she now seems to be the puppeteer of her own act, writing and producing records, starring in a movie that borrows from her life story. Her euphemism for the marriage is "the situation," and what that apparently entailed, besides a Cinderella story, was a Rapunzel story: M.C., trapped in her Bedford, New York, castle, longing to get out and take control her life.

    Well, she got out. Sitting on the couch! with a glass of white wine in hand, feet up, she has the issue of food. Twenty-three million dollars will buy you whatever dinner you desire. What M.C. desires this evening is macaroni and cheese. "It's not what I should be eating," she says, stabbing it was a fork. "But hey - I did have the protein bar." As she tells me about her endless day, her face takes on a bashful pride, as though I have walked in her house in the middle of renovations, but she'll show me around anyway, proud of the changes under way. It's all a work in progress.

    Right away I notice the eyebrows and the eyes. They have this quality - hopeful, expectant, amazed, as though she still cannot believe her life. Everything else about her appearance gives of a vibe of being smart, though, of knowing what's going on. The meetings, agents, deals, the two shiny electronic devices - pager and cell phone - that sit on the couch. Her hair, her body, her manicure, it all says celebrity, businesswoman, diva. But her eyes, particularly her eyebrows say, "Holy shit! Can you believe this?"

    "I was in Spain doing the vocals for the soundtrack," she explains. "I go out the country because this pager and this phone" - she points to them as if they were demanding pets - "will continue to go off. And so I'm out of range there."

    In Malaga, she worked at a live-in studio, leaving only when her boyfriend, Luis Miguel, came to visit. He is a "huge Latin superstar," as she puts it. "We got mobbed because they all love him. Of course," she adds demurely, "I have a few fans in Spain, as well."

    I ask if they discuss their pasts. "A lot of men don't like to tell their stories," she says. "Maybe it's a power thing? Usually, I'm the one who's open. I mean, I've had intense stuff happen to me, but I haven't been through the wringer with lot! s of men. I could count on less than one hand the men I've been with in my life. I really hate the though of being intimate with somebody, and then it's over." She snaps her fingers. So was she a prude in high school?

    "Well, no. As a kid, I would walk around with the tight ensembles on, and the makeup... But it wasn't like I had boyfriend that were serious or that I was having, like, intercourse with. I knew I wasn't going to get married..." She rolls her eyes, gives a loopy grin. "Well, I did get married, but I knew I wasn't going to be doing the housewife thing."

    M.C.'s father left when she was a toddler. She moved thirteen times while growing up on Long Island with an older brother and sister and her mom, Patricia, a Midwestern Irish America whose family never quite forgave her for marrying a man who was half black, half Venezuelan. When her parents met, Alfred Roy Carey was "a swinging aeronautical engineer," as M.C. says, she explains that now he is no way swinging, with-it or hip.

    "He thinks I've had one album," she says as if this were the funniest thing. "Honestly, he doesn't know any of my songs!" "I bet he's a connoisseur of your accomplishments," I say. "Connoisseur?" she says. "He don't know any..."

    A few minutes later, M.C. is on the floor giggling, and her mother, a former opera singer - now ensconced in an upstate New York house that M.C. bought for her - is on the speakerphone, confirming that yes, "he thinks she only made one album."

    "And what do we call it?" asks M.C. They say together: "The Album." M.C. is in hysterics. "We can't diss him," she gasps. "He's just not into music." Considering she hardly knows him, she's talking with real warmth, as though he were an eccentric neighbor.

    The subject of M.C.'s father makes "Glitter" seem all the more personal: a Poor Girl Making It story entwined with a Love story and a Lost Parent story, and, finally, a Mixed Race story. "There are a lot of mixed-race girls and young women who hold Mariah up as a hero," says Lanier. "She's proud of that. For a long time she was encouraged to play up her white side. Since she's been allowed creative freedom, she has related more to black culture."

    When I tell M.C. that her mixed-race backgr! ound seems visually, pretty subtle, her face softens. "Well, that's part of it," she says. "A lot of people say things that they wouldn't say if they thought that somebody, you know, black was in the room. Or vice versa. Or somebody Latin. I'm a mixture of a lot of things. Because of that, I didn't really feel like I had one person that I identified with."

    It was around the time her marriage to Mottola dissolved that M.C. began working with acting Coach Sheila Gray. She'd acted as a kid, but in her "other situation." She was encouraged to focus on her music. "Sheila was one of the catalysts for helping me out of that situation," she says. "I was so blocked, emotionally. I sat on her floor and did relaxation exercises, and immediately started crying, 'cause she said to me, 'Name a place where you feel safe.' And I was, like; 'I don't have one.' I own, contrary to popular belief, half of everything in that mansion" - that she shared with Mottola - "and paid for half of everything, down to the electric bills. So I didn't have one space to think of. And she said 'Well, use something from your childhood'" The one scaldingly awful thing I know about M.C.'s childhood, which I don't bring up from this otherwise festive occasion with white wine and macaroni and cheese, is that, in a newspaper article, her sister talked about having been a prostitute and drug addict.

    "So," she continues, "it was this burst of emotion, and I was just like, Whoa! It helped me realize that, like, this is not right. [Sheila] used to always say, 'Relax your shoulders,' because I walked around like I had to fight, constantly. I grew up with such a free rein. And suddenly, it was this enclosed situation. I wouldn't be the person that I am if I hadn't gone back into that and gotten in touch with myself. Not to sound New Agey or corny..."

    A lot of these themes play out i! n "All That Glitters." "I think people will be blown away by her acting," Lanier says. "She is able to carry off a lot of pain and show a lot of soul," Soul, however, does not interfere with business. "I personally met with everybody," M.C. says of her label negotiations. "I grew up with some of the smartest and most shred businessmen." Before she signed with Virgin, Carey got advice from Lenny Kravitz, who knew her when she was seventeen, sleeping on friends' couches waiting for a break, and from Prince, of whom she is a huge fan. "I learned a lot. It's not like somebody can lie to me and say, 'We're gonna do this and this,' and have me not go, 'Wait, who's your distributor in Taiwan?'"

    "I don't give a fuck!" The $23 million voice booms from the Elle studio dressing room. The controlled frenzy of the photo shoot has been compounded by news that M.C. has to fly to LA tonight to score her movie. Cell phones chirp, assistants swarm, and a guy in a suit stands near a briefcase guarding diamonds from Harry Winston.

    "She's pulling it all together," says Carey's publicist. "There's the record, the single, the radio promos, the videos, the movie, the next movie..." The trades have announced that M.C. will star with Mira Sorvino in "Wise Girls," basically "Wise Guys" for women. The logistics of it all are an enormously complex algebra equation, a hurricane.

    Then the eye of the storm emerges, in pigtails, loose Levi's, a green cardigan with buttons straining across her chest. She is teetering on pink marabou slippers, a glass of champagne in one hand; in her other, the diamonds, dripping and dazzling. Last night was business. This is M.C. unbound, feeling it. She offers a big "H!" followed by "I'm having the biggest fucking spiral of my life!"

    She has a cell phone against her head, and she's talking about Busta Rhymes, from the sound of it, he may be in her next video. She notices me scribbling and, laughing says "You are seeing me at my most..." Eyes bulging, she trails off. Most what? Most perfectionist? Most confident? Most psyched? Most pissed off? All of the above? She's got a million words at her disposal; they come bubbling out like a fountain. She asks if I'd like a glass of champagne, sees hers, almost empty, and belts, "Will someone get me a glass of champagne!" Then, in a whisper, "They're probably trying to keep it away from me, thinking I'm going to get drunk."

    The shoot comments and I ask an assistant, Jill, if Carey's world is usually this intense. "This is the most intense day in a long time," Jill says. "M.C. is the hardest-working girl in show business. She has a hand in everything." Right now, she has a hand between her breasts. She's mugging for the camera, rapping along to the boom box, using the flaunted glass, as an improvised mike. "Hate to sound sleazy, but tease me."

    During the next break, she pulls me aside. "Listen, that stuff I was saying about my father. I don't want it to sound - I just really want to build a relationship with him." I assure her that it was cool, warm even. Her eyes get all soft. What an operator! I think. Not that she's insincere. She just moves fast, shifts gears, and moves on. She turns, and her fistful of diamonds sparkles.

    "I need to talk to Busta!" she says to no one in particular, but everyone hears her, because everyone is listening.

    New Mariah Carey On Its Way
    If you've been itching for more of Mariah Carey's big voice (and other large assets) since the release of her last video off of Rainbow, then you'll be happy to know that your wait for fresh material is almost over. Although her new album, Glitter, won't be in stores until August, the first video will debut on MuchMusic and Musique Plus tomorrow.

    "Loverboy," the lead single off of her forthcoming disc, features guest appearances from Cameo, Ludacris and Da Brat, all of whom will be appearing in the video as well. Directed by David Lachapelle, the man responsible for Moby's "Natural Blues," it features Mariah and her posse buzzing around a motor speedway in what has been described as "a never-before-seen adventure on wheels."

    If it's anything like her other singles, "Loverboy" is bound to become a fixture on radio and MuchMusic, making this yet another summer of Mariah that will be capped off with the release of not only her album, but also her debut film. Also titled Glitter (the disc will double as a soundtrack), the film is set in the '80s and is loosely based on Carey's own struggle to break into the music business. It's slated to open August 31.

    Mariah Carey: Charts Her Course
    Considering that she just signed a deal with Virgin Records for a reported $23.5million per album, Mariah Carey shouldn't be feeling burdened with problems.

    But she does have problems. Their names are Janet Jackson and Jennifer Lopez.

    The 31-year-old Carey suddenly finds her position usurped by younger pop divas - Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Carey saw this coming, which is why she is trying to reposition herself as a pop artist respected in the urban world. Her quest to gain street credibility actually began with her last album, "Rainbow," when she cozied up to rap and had Jay-Z perform with her on the song "Heartbreaker."

    Carey's new single, "Loverboy," is due out today. Jackson, who also records for Virgin, has the single "All for You," which topped the charts and is now No. 3. Sources told me that Carey has lobbied Virgin head Nancy Berry to lighten up on the promotion of Jackson's record so that more resources can be put into marketing her song.

    Berry denied that Carey has done any such thing. "Mariah and I speak frequently," she said. "But at no time has she ever alluded to Janet in any negative way."

    I've also heard Carey has called certain radio stations in New York and Los Angeles trying to dissuade programmers from playing J.Lo's single "Play," which is at No. 21 right now, to find more airtime for "Loverboy."

    Carey's rep, Cindi Berger, denied the story, saying: "Mariah has never done that. There are programmers she knows, but she has never compromised those relationships at all."

    I also hear that Carey continues to reach out to Eminem - again, in search of that elusive street cred - hoping he'll appear on one of her new videos. His answer, I'm told, is always the same: No.

    Berger said that Carey and Eminem have gotten together on occasion. "She talks to every rapper in the land," said Berger.

The best-paid female singer in the world looks blonder and thinner than before as she lounges on the bonnet of a sports car. The sexy songstress now pockets £20million per album after a deal with Virgin Records. A single, Loverboy, from her new film Glitter, is out on July 16 with an album due on August 20. The movie arrives here in the autumn. All in all, it seems her career is at full throttle.

  • First Single 'Loverboy' to Hit Radio Early June
  • Superstar to Release Album of Eleven New Songs in August
  • Music Also Featured in Carey's Motion Picture Debut 'Glitter'

    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- After capturing headlines around the world with the news of her signing a record-breaking contract with Virgin Records, Mariah Carey just announced she will release "Glitter," her eagerly-awaited Virgin Records debut album, in August of this year.

    For "Glitter," which is also the title soundtrack to her movie set in the early 80's, Mariah has enlisted a stellar lineup of co-producers and guest artists, and has also written and produced some of her best ballads to date. The first single from "Glitter" will be "Loverboy," due to hit radio in early June. The song features a hook from Cameo's 1985 smash hit, "Candy." Rather than sampling the original, Mariah went one step further and enlisted Cameo's own Larry Blackmon and Thomas Jenkins to aid in the remake. The song, co-produced by DJ Clark Kent, also features rappers Ludacris and Da Brat, and has been remixed by producers David Morales and MJ Cole.

    The video for "Loverboy" was shot recently in Los Angeles, CA by acclaimed photographer / director David Lachapelle. The star-studded visual features cameos by Da Brat, Ludacris and Cameo, who take to the motor speedway for a never-before-seen adventure on wheels. "Loverboy" is just one of the new songs on "Glitter," the latest album by Mariah Carey, who is unquestionably one of the most successful female singers of all time.

    Mariah Carey has sold more than 150 million albums and singles worldwide, and has earned an incredible 84 RIAA gold, platinum and multi-platinum certifications. Her incredible career began with the release of her first album, the self-titled "Mariah Carey" in 1990, which produced four Number One singles, and she has continued to make history with each release. "Heartbreaker," the first single from her last album "Rainbow," made music history on September 29, 1999, when it became Mariah's 14th Number One single on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart. This feat is rivaled only by the Beatles (with 20) and Elvis Presley (with 17 or 18, depending on whether one counts "Don't Be Cruel" b/w "Hound Dog" as one or two records). Her songs have held the Number One position for a record-setting 61 weeks, 16 of those with "One Sweet Day," her duet with Boyz II Men, another record-setting accomplishment. She has had a Number One hit with every initial single release from each of her albums -- four of which have gone to Number One, and all of which have also gone Top Five -- and she has had a Number One single every year for the last ten consecutive years. In total, Carey has had fifteen Number One songs to date, more than any other female artist ever. At the 1999 ceremonies, Billboard appropriately named Mariah their "Artist of the Decade," and the World Music Awards titled her the "Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium" at the 2000 ceremonies.

    More than 800 open NN fund-raiser for cancer society
    Published: Saturday, June 09, 2001
    NEWPORT NEWS - One by one, the cancer survivors -- more than 800 of them -- signed their name to the banner.

    Then they descended from the stands at Todd Stadium and onto the track to begin the first lap of the Peninsula Relay for Life.

    Their movements echoed those of other cancer survivors taking the same lap at Darling Stadium -- the Peninsula Relay's sister site in Hampton.

    The event, which ends today, drew thousands of people to Todd Stadium. Some were spectators, others were members of the more than 350 teams working to raise $1.35 million for the American Cancer Society. The money benefits cancer research sponsored by the cancer society.

    The survivors -- wearing red sashes and bronze survivor medals hanging from purple ribbons -- circled the track to the sound of continuous applause as Mariah Carey's song "Hero" played over the loud speakers. After the first lap, family members and caregivers joined them, followed by members of the medical profession who have treated them.

    A highlight of the evening was the luminaria ceremony. Thousands of candles -- in bags lining the track -- were lighted in honor of people with cancer or in memory of those who have died from the disease. One could almost hear a pin drop as the stadium's lights were shut off and the inner-lighted bags illuminated the night.

    Rain had threatened to ruin the festive mood Friday afternoon, but the dark clouds could muster only drizzle that lasted about 15 minutes. The sun then burst through the clouds, shining brightly as teen-age girls danced to "Mambo No. 5" by Lou Bega and young gymnasts entertained the crowd with tumble after tumble.

    Earlier in the day, a torch relay officially marked the start of the Peninsula Relay. Called the "Flame of Hope," the torch was carried from Todd to Darling by 45 honored torchbearers -- cancer survivors, medical professionals, Relay for Life volunteers and staff members from the American Cancer Society's Peninsula office.

    Ettalea Kanter, who started the Peninsula Relay in 1995, was the first to carry the torch, which was lighted by Rona Altschuler.

    Altschuler is chair of the Newport News site. Hampton City Councilman Tom Gear is chairing the site in Hampton.

    "It's truly an honor to be here," Altschuler said. "I never dreamed in 1995 that we would have a sister site.

    "This was my dream, but it's not a Newport News-Hampton event. This is a Todd-Darling event, and there are no city lines today."

    Altschuler described Kanter as "the woman who believed in the relay when no one else did."

    "We have a lot of hope," Kanter said. "We hope for a cure, but until then, we relay."

    Money raised this weekend will join the millions of dollars raised across the country for cancer research, she said.

    And until a cure is found, Kanter said, "We work a little harder, and those researchers will work a little harder."

    Relay for Life is the signature fund-raising event for the American Cancer Society.

    Since May, relays have been conducted throughout Hampton Roads, in Gloucester, Isle of Wight, Suffolk and Norfolk.

    This weekend, Williamsburg is also conducting a relay -- its first -- and it's taking place at Jamestown High School.

    EXCLUSIVE...ELLE Magazine is out...
    My buddy Isa and Patrick told me that Mariah's new Elle magazine is out on shelves now. NYC and LA got it a day early then the rest of it and Isa tells me that there is NINE pages of pictures and 2.5 pages for the article. She told me the pics are truly amazing and typed out the captions for some of the pics:

  • "Heavenly creature: Carey takes off in pink plumage and a purple trimmed dress"
  • "Flower girl: Floral are turning up on vest and undies"
  • "Top of the charts: Carey strikes a pose in sheer silk and a ruched shirt"
  • "Vision of love: A silk shawl reveals more than a hint of shoulder"
  • "All that glitters: Carey shines in a simple cardigan or a starworthy beaded gown"

    Giorgio Armani, one of the many who dressed MC for this shoot (others include Christian Dior and Ralph Lauren) said the following about Mariah:

    "Mariah's playful, sensual, and an indisputable talent. This bias-cut gown and shawl are perfect for her because they're provocative and glamorous, highlighting her figure in an elegant yet understated way. And red suits her strong personality"
    Here is another quote from the magazine, which is really cool:
    "Her hair, her body, her manicure says Celebrity, Buisness Woman, DIVA. But her eyes, particularly her eyebrows say, Holy Shit! Can you believe this?"

    NYPost on Elle
    WHEN ELLE hits the newsstands on June 22 we'll get a new look at the pop sensation Mariah Carey. She is forever held up in the tabs as a wild woman but says here: "I've had intense stuff happen to me, but I haven't been through the wringer with a lot of men. I could count on less than one hand the men I've been with in my life. I really hate the thought of being intimate with somebody and then it's over."

    Mariah's life seems a bit like the character she'll portray in her new movie "All That Glitters," a film she co-produced. She also wrote the soundtrack. Virgin paid an unprecedented $23 million for the music without ever hearing even a note in advance. Mariah's track record sold it!

    Taken from the NYPost and many thanks to Nini!

    Mariah in TWO MTV Commercials
    First one, a "Gliter" commercial featuring scenes from Mariah's new video Loverboy and the Glitter logo EVERYWHERE! It says at the end, "Glitter Coming in August!" So they are already promoting the Glitter soundtrack, how cool is that? Thanks Greg!

    Second one features a bunch of celebs wishing MTV happy birthday and Mariah is one of them and at the end it says, August 1st. So there might be a special, which will feature Mariah. Thanks Meg. Both commercials were featured during the MTV Video Awards.

    Mariah on cover of Movieline
    Scott told me that Mariah will be on the cover of the August edition of Movieline Magazine. She is on the cover of the magazine and all she is wearing is a sheet. It should be out in the end of July! Oh dear is all I can say!

    Mariah on Entertainment Tonight
    If you missed ET last night, you didn't miss much. She was on for less then a minute and they just showed scenes from the Loverboy video. They had a nice little interview with her though and they said how she got her bracelet in the pop-corn and asked if a diamond ring would be coming soon. She held out her finger and said, "If it ain't on here now, then I don't know and neither do you."

    EXCLUSIVE...Mariah on motocycle in Glitter Cover
    This is from the June 18th issue of People Magazine and there is no picture (Thanks Courtney):

                Primping to shoot the CD cover of her upcoming "All That Glitters" soundtrack, Mariah Carey was going for a biker-chic look. So the star flipped when her stylist pulled out a photo of the perfect accessory: A $12,000 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-12R motorcycle that Noir accessories designer Leeora Catalan had customized with more than 50,000 Swarovski crystals. Carey simply had to have the haute hog pronto and requested that it be flown in from New York to L.A. Alas, the Hell's Angels wannabe could only pose for still shots on her dream machine. Catalan, not wanting the cycle ridden, kept the keys....

    Do You Hear What I Hear? It's Mariah
    Here is what's happening around the land with Loverboy...

  • Chris:
    Hey regina well i was listening to the radio today out here in so cali i was listening to this one station called 100.3 the beat and they played Mariah's Loverboy song the remix then right after that they played it again the same version.. The Dj said i been getting alot of request for this song by mariah carey and its hott hott so he played the remix back to back then he was gonna play the original but he had to go to commercial just wanted to tell you.. Buh Bye.. Do you know when your site is gonna be running again?
  • Anne:
    This has been a VERY cool day for me!!! And for all other Dutch Mariah fans I hope!!!! This morning I believe it was around 11 o'clock or something, they premiered Loverboy on a radiostation called radio3fm!!! So I was in like cloud #7 or something. The DJ said he would hear it for the first time too and that the promo was still pretty much sealed, he just got it!!

    Anyway, remember I was talking about this DJ a few days ago? He has something against Mariah it seems, last year he was pretty mean, not playing Mariah's Theme when it was released, Against All Odds neither. Anyway, as most radiostations got the promo today, he even mentioned he would have it today to a fan, who sent it on to the dmca-list. So I guess alot of people where dying to hear it but he didn't even mention anything about Loverboy and did not play it. Anyway, I'm very happy I switched in time, cause on another radiostation, Radio538, they also "premiered" Loverboy and they made it into the "Make it or break it" record o' the day. So it went fast, and the DJ mostly let hear negative responses to the song, so it seemed most listeners wanted to break it. BUT alot of people must have liked it though, cause in the end it was MADE by 73.1%!!!!! So that's cool!!! I was SO scared it would be broken, which means they weren't gonna play it anytime soon, but hey it turned out good, now let's hope the public still likes it when the single comes out!!! Gosh I'm SO happy this worked out fine!!!

  • Alen:
    just wanted to tell you a cool story. Today at work I wasn't planning to take a break....but somehow I did. I came into the cafeteria, and i wasn't there for even five minutes when the DJ said: "And here i got a new single, received it just a moment ago, and its still packed...and I'm gonna play it. It's the premiere of Mariah's new single Loverboy!" The radio station was Yorin FM. I was totally flipping....And the song sounds so damn gooood....better than the mp3 file:)

    EXCLUSIVE...Are you Mariah's Biggest Fan
    This is directly from mtv.com (thanks HoneyBFly18):

    Total Request Live is looking for Mariah Carey's biggest fans!
    If you are a huge fan, don't miss this opportunity! Come to the open casting call on Friday June 8th. Please arrive at 1515 Broadway (corner of 44th street and Broadway) at 4:00 p.m. For more information please call 212-398-8549..
    I just called the number and basically they talked about tickets for TRL shows and how they will be back in NYC this upcoming week. There is a rumor that Mariah will be on TRL on June 18th, so maybe this has to do something with that. I hate how they give you less then a day to get everything situated though, because I would love to go but sadly can't make it to the Train station, since I have to work tomorrow! Maybe this information will help someone else though!

    Interview with Mariah on ET
    As we all know, Mariah will be on Entertainment Tonight and she will be in the "Exclusive" section, which is usually in the middle of the show. They added an interview with her on the main page but this is an older interview when they were on the set of Glitter last year. Thanks to BubbleSnow for bringing this to my attention

    Mariah Carey
    "...that whole thing was a complete lie..."
    June 07, 2001

    We caught up with MARIAH CAREY -- who cleared up rumors about her love life, HALLE BERRY and other scandals! Read on for Mariah's candid comments!

    ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT: This is your acting debut.

    MARIAH CAREY: Well, I did a little thing last year in 'The Bachelor' with CHRIS O'DONNELL which was one day of shooting, but I've been studying for a long time and I really enjoy the process of acting. The whole process of acting, the whole process of doing a movie has helped me grow as a person. I'm really glad I'm finally seeing the whole thing come to fruition because there was a time when I didn't know if it was going to work, but the soundtrack has been so great to do because it's like writing to a story as opposed to just my own personal experience.

    ET: How did it make you grow as a person?

    MARIAH: Well, just because a lot of times, in a lot of things I went through, my tendency was to shut down and block out what was really going on emotionally. Otherwise I would have drowned in that mess. I don't mean just recent stuff, but my entire life and whatever situations came about. In acting you can't do that, you can't shut down emotionally. I had to really not do that and really explore why I do that and how it impacted my life and the decisions that I make.

    ET: Was it scary for you to step into this film that you were also producing?

    MARIAH: There was a lot of support for me on the movie. VONDIE CURTIS always has been great and I really enjoy working with him. He's a great person, he's really passionate about the movie and that's great. But no, it was scarier for me to go to an acting class. A bunch of actors who are working or aspiring to work and get up there and be people in the class, which is a very good, healthy thing for me to do, but was actually terrifying.

    ET: Now, who is this hot, hunky, guy you chose as a love interest?

    MARIAH: The guy playing Dice is MAX BEESLEY, who is from England. He's a really good actor and is really good in the movie because he is a musician as well as an actor.

    ET: That's great. Do you have love scenes in this movie?

    MARIAH: Oh, not real love scenes. No, there is a very good romantic dynamic, but there is no ... well, I'll let them cover the movie and see what happens.

    ET: There are a few smooches.

    MARIAH: I'm not going to say. Let them go to the movie.

    ET: Oh, believe me. I think people will go to this movie. You won't have a problem packing them in. Now, I know you have ERIC BENÉT in this movie.

    MARIAH: And there's been a whole bunch of ridiculous press that says Eric Benét and I are in some love-fest. We only have three scenes together in the movie. It's funny because people try to seize any little morsel of a thing to blow it up into a story, but yeah, he's in the movie and he does a really nice song and it's been really cool. It's been good working with him

    ET: Do you and Eric have duets? Do you sing duets?

    MARIAH: We sing one song together, which we have not sung yet, but we've laid it down.

    ET: Did HALLE (BERRY -- his girlfriend) come to the set?

    MARIAH: No. So, that was another part of the lie. Halle did not come to the set.

    ET: Did she come to scratch your eyes out?

    MARIAH: No, we would have loved to have Halle come to the set. But she didn't, that whole thing was a complete lie.

    ET: What I was also going to ask you, which was in the papers, is about you and LUIS MIGUEL (Mariah's boyfriend).

    MARIAH: Well, during a movie is not the easiest time in the world to be with somebody, but we find time.

    ET: So, everything's OK with you guys?

    MARIAH: Yeah, why? What was in the papers today?

    ET: That he was upset because you can't find time for him, because you're working so much.

    MARIAH: Thanks for telling me this. Was it in the tabloids? No, I mean, it' s really difficult. He was on tour last year; I went to see him on a tour all over the world. He came to Canada to see me. I went to Mexico in the middle of the movie. Oh, we went to Disneyland and Naples, Florida and we've been traveling when I get a chance and when he gets a chance. So, that's life in the entertainment world.

    ET: That's great. Now, you guys have been together for a long time?

    MARIAH: Almost two years.

    ET: That's a long time. Happy?

    MARIAH: Yes.

    ET: Any plans to....

    MARIAH: Plans to go on a nice vacation and things of that nature.

    ET: And that's it. Wedding bells?

    MARIAH: Hey, if I did I wouldn't say it on TV.

    ET: How would you sum up the fun factor here? Are you having a lot of fun?

    MARIAH: It's been really fun doing this, but it's also been a complete turnaround, schedule-wise, the six, five-in-the morning calls. I've never been in one place for this long. I haven't stayed in one place this long for like three years. I'm going to be sad when it's over, and it's almost over.

    ET: When's it over?

    MARIAH: Two days.

    ET: Are you going to do more movies after this?

    MARIAH: I would love to. I love this. It's been a lot of fun.

    ET: What would you say to a young girl with a dream like yours?

    MARIAH: I would just say do it if you really want to do it, but there is a lot that comes along with it, which is one of the points of this movie. You have to be really at ease with yourself and none of the extra stuff really makes you a whole person unless you get there because of what's in you, not because of the admiration or the money or the things that come along with it.

    ET: Love the title, 'All That Glitters.' Is it gold or not?

    MARIAH: We'll have to see.

    Mariah on BET
    I have two stories for you from what happened yesterday on BET!! Remember, it will air TOMORROW at 6 pm EST and the show is a hour and a half long.

  • BubbleSnow:
    HEY EVERYONE!!!!!
    Although it's extremely late, I just got back home from the city where today I saw BET's 106&Park.

    I was sooo surprised there were only 80 people in the audience, the maximum allowed and I was so excited to finally see Mariah from a closer perspective.  On my way there, I met Joe, who also visits www.mariahdaily.com often and was going to give your letters out to Mariah... he did!

    She was... soooooo beautiful that I even cried (I hope they didn't catch me on camera doing that lol) but if you do want to look for me I was wearing a royal blue tank top and jeans :)   (I have brown hair with blond highlights)

    So anyways she came out rockin' this amazing blond haircut and was wearing a white tank top that said "Candy" on it.  You could also see parts of the corners of her bra, I thought that was extremely sexy.  She was wearing also a jean skirt and I could swear to you, even if it sounds sick, that at one point someone from her staff pulled her up a bit and pulled the skirt down and my boyfreind saw her black underwear.  I'm not trying to be a pervert, but I think it's so funny that we were so close to her that we saw... everything! lol

    She was unbelievably nice and even gave me her autograph.  Everytime she looked my way I would smile and say hello and she would do the same back.  Let's just say that I was a bit tense because I love her so much but she made me (and I think everyone) feel very comfortable.  

    Her new video is amazing, I can't believe I got to see it already but don't worry you will see it soon too :) .  If any of you are ever considering going to 106&Park as an audience member then I totally recomend it because the studio is very small and I was sitting on the second row so I got to see Mariah soooo well! At one point only a couple feet away.

    I can't wait to check out the show Friday, hopefully they didn't cut me out :) but they recorded me alot so I don't know :)

  • FrozenPetals :
    Here's a overview of Mariah's "106 & Park" appearance from Heather. No camera's were allowed, but we will share a picture of Mariah and Heather, from where they met up on the set of "Glitters." Her story is below:

    Mariah originally wanted "Glitter" to be two cd's but in the outcome she knew it would be too much for her to do! "Loverboy" is in the movie. It is Billie's first single! She came out in a cute ass lil denim skirt and a lil tank that said CANDY on it she was so gorgeous! Okay, I was like maybe five feet away from her! So gorgeous! She talked about her little trip to the strip club and her parties with AJ when they had to hide the fun when a "certain someone" entered the room and ok so she was out on stage for like one hour.

    They played "Loverboy" (How much do I love this video and the song?! I now like the rap version). They also played "Fantasy." When they played Destiny's Child's "Bootylicious" Mariah was all "I haven't seen this" and she turns and watches the video.

    Mariah mentioned how she loved Free's name. Wonder why? The camera men were filming my sign. I wanted to hurt Free because she kept looking at my sign goin "Wow, look at that sign" but never said it to MC! But atlast the saddest moment. Mariah was leaving so I made sure I had my sign up and then *dies* she notices it.... reads it *while pointing at it* and smiles and waves and has a slight look of recognition on her face.

    My freind david was like "OMG! She looked like she really did remember you." But ok, so yeah, that was my day! How awsome was it? MACA is back in da house!

    Also thanks to Mariah Carey World News Organization, which is where I originally got this from!

    Mariah Enlists Original Cameo Members For 'Loverboy' Single
    (6/6/01, 5 p.m. ET) -- Mariah Carey enlists original Cameo members Larry Blackmon and Thomas Jenkins to sing the chorus to their 1987 Number One hit "Candy" that Carey uses on her single "Loverboy," the first release from her new album--the soundtrack to Glitter, her motion picture debut. The song, produced by Carey and DJ Clark Kent, features rappers Ludacris and Da Brat, and remixes by producers David Morales and MJ Cole. Ludacris, Da Brat, and Cameo are featured in the video directed by famed photographer David Lachapelle. The "Loverboy" single was originally expected to reach radio June 18 and 19; however, the label is considering an earlier date. The Glitter soundtrack is scheduled to be released August 21 on Virgin Records, Carey's new label home.
    -- Billy Johnson Jr., Los Angeles

    Thanks to Gina Marie and Jason for this information.

    Mariah Carey by Marc Shapiro
    Well if you ordered your book from Amazon, you most likely got it yesterday, which I indeed did. I think the book is very well done and the pictures inside are amazing. Lisa scanned every pic in the book and you can check that out by clicking here.

    Plus, Moni typed out the back cover on the book and here it is:

    When Mariah Carey stepped up to the podium to receive the Billboard Music Award for Artist of the Decade, there was no question about her talent. After all, the had earned a number one single every year of the nineties. But Mariah had worked for this success. From her humble beginnings as a struggling singer, Mariah spent years honing her skills, convinced that she would eventually be recognized for her abilities. But success required the power of music biz magnate Tommy Mottola, whose admiration for Mariah's soaring vocals quickly turned into romantic interest.

    Mariah's rise to fame has not been without a price, for as Marc Shapiro reveals, she has had to weather lawsuits, estranged family members, and a fairy tale marriage turned bad. Through all of this turmoil, though, Mariah's music has been her source of strength, eventually leading her into the arms of a new "Dreamlover."

      Mariah's endless string of smash hits, her burgeoning film career, and her persistence in the face of hardship demonstrate a talent that shows no sign of waning. With more than 30 photos showcasing Mariah's trendsetting style, Marc Shapiro's Mariah Carey: The Unauthorized Biography details the Cinderella story of this enduring artist.

    Check your local bookstore for a copy or order one on Amazon.com

    MariahCarey.com Updated
    You can now check into MariahCarey.com to download Loverboy Original Version and the remix version, in cd quality!!

    Plus, the moderators for Mariah's Official Board were pick and they include...
    Liron, Shayne, John, Joey, Ninette, Hillary and myself.
    Jill posted a message about it and here is what she said:

    hey you guys
    I just wanted to let you all know that as far as moderating the site goes, new people will be being asked to moderate every few months because I know that MANY of you wanted to moderate and I am so grateful for that! So we will be rotating moderators and that way everyone will have a chance and hopefully that will be the best way to keep it fair.

    Please let me know if that seems alright!
    Thank you all very much

    Loverboy #16 on Billboard
    Chris, who is an online member of Billboard, told me that Mariah featuring Cameo was number 16 on the section called, "Bubbling Under the Top 100." So, Loverboy hasn't even been on the radio stations for a week and is almost already in the Billboard Top 100! I am sure once the video hits tomorrow, Loverboy will blow up even more.

    Mariah in YAM
    Honey and Kate, from Butterflies Are Free, sent me a scan of Mariah in YAM magazine, which you can check out in Gallery 55. Here is the translation of the article:

    Mariah Carey starts in August
    The waiting has an end! Mariah Carey's (32) new album "Glitter" will be out on August 21st. The CD isn't only her new studio album, but also the soundtrack for her first movie "All That Glitters". First single: "Loverboy". The highlight of the CD is "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life", an 80's cover.

    Mariah in XY
    BoogieWoogieBoi told me that Mariah is in XY magazine and there is a little picture of her from the Rolling Stone shoot, where she was in the men's bathroom. It's just talks about the Rolling Stone book that features these pics and it juts says, "David LaChapelle's classic Mariah picture in the boy's locker room."

    Jam the Lines
    Mariah's new song Loverboy is now out and we need you to jam the request lines of your local radio station. Every little request helps to get the word out and we want to get her new single to #1. Please take a few minutes and get your voice heard.

    I revamped the RequestMC page with more numbers, etc! Check out the RequestMC page or Project Glitter for more details on how you can help. Mariah needs our help, let's not let her down!

    Mariah on FoxMovies.com
    Jeanette told me that FoxMovies.com has updated the Glitter section a little bit. They changed the name from "All That Glitters" to "Glitter" and added the release date of the movie, which is August 31st. Click "FoxMovies.com" above for a direct link to the "Glitter" page.

    Mariah on Virgin main page
    Chad told me that Virgin added Mariah to the main page of their site and if you click on the picture, it takes you to mariahcarey.com

    Fox Family Countdown
    Here is what Leo told me:
    I was resently on "The FOX FAMILY COUNTDOWN." I was a slam it or Jam it judge and I picked jamit for Janets "All For You." You get awsome prizes, so this weekend everyone call 1-800-count-15 and request mariahs "Loverboy" and they might call you for slam it or jam it, for mariahs "Loverboy."  Usually the first week of release they use the hottest song and they think is going to be big so of course Mariahs will be on it and we don't want anyone to slam it we need jam it for Mariah's "Loverboy."

    Request Mariah on B96
    Here is what Gina Marie told me:
    For requesting songs at B96.com, I would HIGHLY suggest going to their webisite to do it (http://www.b96.com/) because it is IMPOSSIBLE to get through on their phone lines!  I've been trying ALL day and haven't gotten through once!  On their request page, it even says "Remember, your votes count for the 9 Most Wanted every night at 9pm!" so if no once can get through on the phone lines, go to the site!!!

    Do You Hear What I Hear? It's LOVERBOY!

  • Xavier:
    i live in N. Alabama and the local RnB station played loverboy over 7x today! it has yet to make the top 10 countdown but all the DJ's LOVE it!! i'm sad to say but the pop station here isn't so great...it's mostly caters to an adult audience and only plays soft rock and teen pop..but i've been flirting with all the DJ's and hopefully they will budge and play it now...instead of after it's already been #1 for a couple weeks

  • Kym:
    I just wanted to tell you that on tuesday Mariah debuted at #3 on Tito's Top 4 at 4:00 (on Power106) and the d.j. said " wow! it's been out for 3 days and it's already on the countdown!" then he said "it's good to hear Mariah on the radio" then everyone in the background starterd cheering!!!!  but sadly today she wasn't even on the countdown.

    And then my Best friend told me that another radio station 99.1 Kggi debuted "Lover Boy" but every time they debut a song they have a thing called Bump it or Dump it and listeners call in and tell them if the song is good or not,  and some crazy lady called and said to dump it she said that it was too slow and that she couldn't listen to the whole song she changed the station at the beginning!

    Jessica Simpson, Irresistible
    Christina Aguilera's chief rival in the ongoing Mariah Carey Soundalike Sweepstake in which platinum-blonde baby divas belt and riff their way to dominate the pop and R&B markets - has thrown her hat into the ring once again.

    To her credit, Simpson, now 21, sounds less like a Mariah wannabe on this sophomore effort, and uses her technically impressive mezzo with a tad more restraint. But if there's nothing as insufferable as Simpson's saccharine breakthrough hit I Wanna Love You Forever here, there's also little that's distinctive about these catchy but generic love songs, contributed by such ubiquitous pop-soul tunesmiths as Cory Rooney, Rodney Jerkins and Walter Afanasieff.

    Even a romantic duet with the more accomplished Marc Anthony, There You Were, feels cold and generic. Simpson may no longer be merely a starry-eyed impersonator, but she has yet to develop a distinctive or engaging personality of her own.

    Interesting Tidbit
    For those of you who have the All I Want For Christmas Is You 2000 cd singles, go check them out. If you look at the cd, the title heading is spelled wrong. It says, "All I Want For Chiristmas Is You 2000" instead of "All I Want For Christmas Is You 2000."

    Thanks to Hero's Of Mariah for this tidbit also Alisha for bringing it to my attention.

    Jam the Lines
    Mariah's new song Loverboy is now out and we need you to jam the request lines of your local radio station. Every little request helps to get the word out and we want to get her new single to #1. Please take a few minutes and get your voice heard.

    Check out the RequestMC page or Project Glitter for more details on how you can help. Mariah needs our help, let's not let her down!

    Information from Virgin Employee
    A Virgin employee contacted me and asked me to place some stations on the page for Canada. The funny thing, is the last one is Halifax, where Mariah is right now! So if you can, try and request Mariah in Halifax because it would be so cool if we can make Loverboy a hit on that station and she heard it during a break of filming Wise Girls.

    Glitter Soundtrack released on August 20th in Germany
    My sexy chop Dennis, from Butterfly-MC, told me that the Loverboy single will be released July 2nd, the movie will be released September 27th and the album with be released on August 20th.

    My only question is how could the Loverboy single be released in Germany before the US??

    Fans helping Fans
    Leo found a place near him that sells big Mariah keychains and little picture packs. He said he is willing to buy some for fellow MC fans, if anyone wants one. Contact him at ICRAM321@gateway.net

    Vote for Mariah on Global 100
    Tony told me that we should start voting for Mariah in Global 100. Vote for her in the Female singles and album categories. Tony already added Loverboy in, so it should show up and Mariah is #10 in female stars. So, we need to get her up to #1, GO AND VOTE!

    Do You Hear What I Hear? It's Loverboy
    A TON of you are e-mailing me and telling me what's going on at your local radio stations. At first there was so many, that I didn't think I should post them here on the site but I figured out that it's important to do so. So at the end of every news o' the day, I will be posting this section, featuring your comments and what's going on locally near you...

  • Gina Marie I just turned on B96 & Loverboy was on the top 9 at 9!!!  I didn't hear what number it was, BUT after it was Peaches & Cream, then they announced O-Town at #3!!  So if I am correct Loverboy was #5!!!!  Wooo hooooooo, that's awesome, we have to keep requesting!  I got through once by phone today (the lines are always busy), but I requested it a bunch of times online.

    B96 Request line.... (Area codes 312, 773, 815 or 630) 591-9696

  • Pete from Australia:
    We need for people to request Loverboy in Australia as much as the US. So i have added a link where all Australians and other Mariah fans must vote. The most important are Video Hits, Hot30.com and Channel V.
    Click here to request Loverboy in Australia
  • Regina from Mariah Daily:
    On Monday, PST 97.5 had their normal battle of the songs at 7:30 pm EST and Mariah went up against Dave Matthew's Band. 3 of the 4 people that were aired on the radio, requested Mariah's song Loverboy. I spent 20 minutes trying to get through and when I did, I obviously put my request in for Mariah! Sadly, Dave won somehow, even though everyone wanted MC to win, it seemed. They are still going to play Mariah's Loverboy song though.
  • Jason:
    Last night I was watching the making of "Bootylicious" on MTV(which by the way is a good song and video)and my phone rang and it was my friend, he was tripping all over his words, he finally spit it out, that "Loverboy" was on the radio(92pro fm in providence)and it was on this thing that they do called "Make it or break it" where they get 2 new songs, play them both and then people call in and say the artist they vote for.  Last night it was Mariah and Ricky Martin, it was called the battle of the beats.  Well im sad to say that Mariah lost to stupid ricky (i can'nt sing) martin.  But I called in and when the dj answered i said that i voted for mariah and that it was an awesome song and she said that it was the worst one she has ever heard mariah do, and i told her she thought that because she did'nt have very good taste in music and then i hung up on her.  But i did have 8 of my other friends call up and vote. 


    June 5, 2001...Update #2
    New pics at MariahCarey.com
    There are four screen caps from the Loverboy video at MariahCarey.com You can check them out in the Loverboy Gallery, which I created today. Coming Friday morning, there will be a ton of caps from the Loverboy video that my friend Alex will make for us!! So, that's why I made a special Loverboy Gallery. Enjoy.

    EXCLUSIVE...Mariah Carey book hits the shelves
    Molly told me that Amazon.com sent her a confirmation about the new Mariah Carey book written by Marc Shapiro and said that the new book was being shipped out. I ordered my copy from Amazon too but have yet to get anything about it in an e-mail. I did track my order on their website though and it said I should be getting my book between June 8 and June 14. So go order your copy of the new Mariah Carey book at amazon.com because they are shipping them out now.

    I also went ahead and called two local Barnes and Noble bookstores and they told me they got the book at their warehouses on 5/1/01 but do not have a copy in stock. I was told they could order it for me but it would take a week, so that's another option if you want the book.

    As soon as I get the book, I will scan the pictures inside.

    I'll Be There on charts
    RML612 sent me the following information from Billboard.com

    'MARMALADE' REDUX
    Hi Fred,
    Now that the new version of "Lady Marmalade" has hit No. 1 on The Billboard Hot 100, maybe it's time to recap the other songs that have hit No. 1 by two different artists. Was the last time when Mariah Carey hit No. 1 with "I'll Be There"?

    Also, I would love it if these songs were pulled together on a compilation CD. Do you know if any record company has plans to serve us such a musical treat?

    Ric Martel
    Chicago

    Dear Ric,
    I did recap the nine twice-told tunes in a recent print edition of "Chart Beat," but for those who didn't see it, I'm glad to do a summary here. You're right, "I'll Be There," originally a chart-topper for the Jackson 5, and then No. 1 for Mariah Carey, was the most recent instance of a remake of a No. 1 song also going to No. 1, until the new version of "Lady Marmalade" came along.

    Here are the nine songs that have been No. 1 by two different artists:
    "Go Away Little Girl," Steve Lawrence (1963) and Donny Osmond (1971)
    "The Loco-Motion," Little Eva (1962) and Grand Funk (1974)
    "Please Mr. Postman," the Marvelettes (1961) and Carpenters (1975)
    "Venus," Shocking Blue (1970) and Bananarama (1986)*
    "Lean on Me," Bill Withers (1972) and Club Nouveau (1987)
    "You Keep Me Hangin' On," the Supremes (1966) and Kim Wilde (1987)
    "When a Man Loves a Woman," Percy Sledge (1966) and Michael Bolton (1991)
    "I'll Be There," Jackson 5 (1970) and Mariah Carey (1992)
    "Lady Marmalade," Labelle (1975) and Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mya, and Pink (2001)

    Download Loverboy on WinMx.com
    Brandon told me you can now download Loverboy on WinMX.com. It's similiar to Napster.

    Jam the Lines
    Mariah's new song Loverboy is now out and we need you to jam the request lines of your local radio station. Every little request helps to get the word out and we want to get her new single to #1. Please take a few minutes and get your voice heard.

    Check out the RequestMC page or Project Glitter for more details on how you can help. Mariah needs our help, let's not let her down!

    Loverboy on European MTV News
    Dror and Anne told me that the 20 second footage of Loverboy was featured on MTV Europe News yesterday.

    MARIAH'S NEW STRIP JOINT PASSION
    Jun 03, 2001 (WENN via COMTEX) -- Singer MARIAH CAREY has been hanging out in strip joints - and giving female strippers very large tips.Carey and about 20 crew members spent the evening in the BIKINI BAR in Lancaster, California after spending the day working on the video for LOVERBOY, a single from the soundtrack of her movie GLITTER.As Carey and her pals entered the bar, exotic dancer SARAH BLAKELY was dancing to Carey's hit MY ALL.Blakely is such a fan of Mariah's she even named her daughter after her so was delighted when the singer picked a remix of her song HEARTBREAKER for the dancer to perform to.Carey left after an hour, tipping the dancer $250    

    Thanks Jake for this article!

    MARIAH GLITTERS ON NEW SOUNDTRACK
    MARIAH CAREY has been working with funk soul maestro, one-time MOTOWN staff songwriter and 80's hellraiser credited with inventing "punk-funk," RICK JAMES, on her forthcoming soundtrack to the film 'ALL THAT GLITTERS'.

    James, who has served time in prison on cocaine charges and for imprisoning and assaulting a woman, contributes a track to the soundtrack for the film, which is being scored by Carey, and in which she co-stars with singer Eric Benet.

    The 'Glitter' soundtrack will feature a host of guest stars, who Carey has said she will name nearer its August 21 release date, although she has confirmed that Janet Jackson's favoured team, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis have produced the majority of the album.

    Rap mix-tape kingpin DJ Clue has also produced the disco fave 'Last Night A DJ Saved My Life' while Da Brat, Ludacris and 80s funksters Cameo bolster the set - with their re-working of the classic 'Candy'.

    Stars hit the big screen
    Alfred Hitchcock famously referred to his actors as cattle. And he treated them in a way that, had they been, would have had the RSPCA inspectors round in a trice - tying birds to Tippi Hedren to better facilitate their vigorous pecking of her eyes was the least of it. So it's not surprising that sometimes the fawning, the fans, the million-dollar pay cheques and the wardrobes of free Versace just aren't enough for the average film star. What they crave, even more than a six-pack or a size two body, is r-e-s-p-e-c-t.  ...

    It seems that for actors, directing is less a way to make terrific films and more a way to redefine themselves, to show us, the paying public, their true inner selves in a way that is even more profound and effective than hiring a new stylist. But if actors find their profession slightly embarrassing, they should spare a thought for the poor souls trying to get in. From Mariah Carey's debut as a rags-to-riches songstress in the autobiographical All That Glitters, to the truly chilling news that Posh Spice hopes to land a role as a poor single mother addicted to prescription pills in a Channel 4 drama, it seems that for pop stars at least, acting is the very pinnacle of respectability.

    Thanks to Tom for this article!

    Help a fellow fans
    McHoney09@aol.com does not have cable and was wondering if anyone could record the video and information this week. If you would be kind and help her out, it would appreciated. She is willing to trade or pay for your efforts. Plus, Kristen doesn't have cable either and was wondering if anyone could help her out.

    Plus, if you need the Rolling Stone magazine, which Mariah was featured on the cover of, last year you can send an e-mail to Leo because he has an extra one.

    Kelly would like you all to check out her site, Mariah Central. So, go check it out!

    Combined News
    I originally did five updates today, but I combined them all, so it would be easier to read! Hope that helps!

    Mariah ON TRL #2
    Mariah was just on TRL moments ago. Basically it lasted about 2 minutes and it's a Making of the Video!! Each day, they will show about 2-3 minutes, which will equal up to the MTV half hour special, minus the commercials.

    They explained the whole concept of the video today, Mariah and the director. They showed her sitting in a chair, relaxed from those MTV pics earlier in the month. She pops out of a cake too people, how cool is that? DaBrat, Shawna, 22 and Ludacris will be in the video, so I guess there will be two videos again too!! They said that they will be driving the cars, so maybe there won't be 2 videos. We'll have to wait and see.

    There are 5 still pics and in the one picture of MC jumping out of the cake, the Glitter logo that was featured on Virgin Italy is featured behind her, REALLY HUGE!! So it is the official logo of Glitter, how cool is that?

    Tomorrow, they are going to begin to show behind the scenes. Today was just a concept part of Making the Video. Check out a few screen caps in the Loverboy Gallery which Matt from MCarey.nu made. For more click here.

    Tune into TRL tomorrow for more with Mariah!

    Attention Attention, FALSE news reported today
    The story that I reported earlier about Mariah covering Pat Benetar's song, "Love is a Battlefield" was a completly made up story. I have removed it already, so if you have no idea what I am talking about good. Here is the reason why it was false, directly from Tom, the person who sent it to me!! I am sory to of misled all of you but as you can see, it wasn't my fault and now I have to question all the stories reported to me from fellow fans!!

    You had such a good April Fool's joke with the Mariah message that I had to get you back - I totally made up the Pat Benetar story!!!  Sorry.  I promise I'll never do it again.  I'm sure you're gonna hate me since you'll have to do a retraction on the site, but hey, if you're gonna give it, you gotta take it.  I promise I'll make it up by sending even more articles than usual.  I thought it might be funny though to do a daily fake article like that Mariah and Eminem were comparing ways to die their hair blonde, etc. since she says most articles are wrong.

    Please don't be too mad and take it in the spirit it was intended and trust that I won't send any more fake articles.

    I am all for practical jokes, when they are done right. I do an April Fools joke every year and that is the ONLY time I do it!! Today is not April Fools Day, as far as I know!

    Major News from MariahCarey.com
    Man, it is huge update today!! MariahCarey.com's news section has been updated today, June 4th. There is a lot of cool new information, including the fact that Mariah will be on Access Hollywood too. Plus, they linked to thiss site, Mariah Daily, how nice!

    Loverboy hysteria!
    If you live in the USA you probably heard Mariah's new amazing song Loverboy on your local radiostation, or downloaded one of all the soundfiles found on lots of Mariah websites. The song was supposed to be released at a later time, but because of all the hype and excitement and curiousity about Mariah and the new album, movie etc., Loverboy was leaked to radio as of 5PM EST Friday (6/1). As a result, Virgin had to go international with it and countries around the world can expect to have it by Monday or Tuesday of this week. A very important thing right now is to help Mariah, create some serious BUZZ about the song by requesting it alot on radio - please do this for Mariah everyone! Radio Station Request Lines

    As said before, the Loverboy video will premier on MTV Total Request Live June 8, but you don't even have to wait that "long" to get a glimpse of it, because this week MTV will begin airing the Making of the Video for Loverboy. Mariah has been on "Making" one time before with Heartbreaker and it was a fantastic cool show and a huge help that got the video to be #1 on MTV for weeks! This time it'll be in a different format, because beginning Monday, June 4, MTV will have a new 5 minutes clip shown each day with different footage and interviews with Mariah each day until Friday, when the big premier occurs. Exciting!

    It's a good idea to also support the video by voting on MTV TRL, here is how to do it. (Everyone all over the world can vote online!)

    To vote for Mariah do like this:

  • Click here to visit the MTV TRL site.
  • Choose "Play my song".
  • Vote for Mariah and Loverboy. As many times you have time to!

    Another way to vote on TRL is to call in, do like this:
    Call 1-800-DIAL-MTV (1-800-342-5688)
    CALL from 2:30 - 3:30P (Eastern Time)
    CALL from 1:30 - 2:30P (Central Time)
    CALL from 12:30 - 1:30P (Mountain Time)
    CALL from 11:30 - 12:30P (Pacific Time)
    This is the MOST effective way, call-in votes count more than online votes!

    Many thanks to the Mariah Daily website for TRL information.

    Did you know?

  • Mariah will be on the cover of Elle magazine soon.

    Loverboy already a hit with radio?
    Mariah's single "Loverboy" has reached radio now and they will start playing it soon. Here is a great review of the song by Erik Bradley, who is musical director at Chicago's B96 station, one of the absolute largest in all of USA!

    Mariah's new single "Loverboy" is classic MC. It's another vintage up-tempo, fun, summertime JAM that will bring Mariah back to the top of the charts once again. The Cameo sample WORKS -- I can't wait to play it on the radio, and fortunately it won't be long 'til we can share this masterpiece with the world! "Loverboy" is the first of many hits from the All That Glitters Soundtrack...songs that we'll be hearing for the next few years!!

    About David LaChapelle

    Rainbow cover by David LaChapelle

    ""I like to see outrageousness and sexiness and things that are out of control..."
    "...I like to make people larger than life."
    Quotes by David LaChapelle

    David directed the Loverboy video for Mariah. He is most famous for his photographs, but he has directed videos before. Click here to view the video he made for Moby's song "Natural Blues". (RealAudio program needed.)

    David LaChapelle studied at the Art Student's League and School of Visual Arts. He won the 1997 International Center of Photography's Infinity Award and the 1996 VH1 Fashion Award for Photographer of the Year. Mariah is a big fan of David, and his photos have even been displayed in museums!

    Some links to check out:
    "Minigallery" of photos by David. (Warning, some are a bit extreme.)
    Photos of Mariah which David took for Rolling Stone magazine. (The locker room picture and the two photos at the top on the right are by David.)

  • Official site updated..New Mariah Style
    Mariah's official site has been updated again. When you click on the link, a pop-up will come up and it says the following...

    MARIAH BANDEAU
    Remember the Mariah Jean... You are probably wearing a cutoff waistband right now (females and males). Well, this week on TRL you will see Mariah in the MARIAH BANDEAU ...Info will follow on its special detailing and how you can get some for the summer!

    LOVERBOY is so hot... IT'S BLOWING UP!!!

    When I saw the video yesterday, the first thing I noticed was the bandana and how cool it looked. So, yet again, Mariah is creating a new style. Here is a capture I posted yesterday with the new top:

    EXCLUSIVE...VH1 premiers video early!
    Jose told me that on today's VH1 morning mix, they announced that VH1 will begin to play Mariah's new video, Loverboy, on June 8th at 7 am EST. The video will then air every hour on the hour on VH1.

    So VH1, will premire the video before MTV does later that day at 3:30 pm on TRL!!

    Plus, BET might even premier the video before VH1 and MTV since they are recording a special with Mariah on Wednesday at 3 pm and later that night at 6 pm EST, they might air the new special.

    New Script details
    Check out Project Glitter in the Movie Section for 2 more new scenes from the Glitter script. One is her love scene with Dice and the other is her first photo shoot, where she talks how she doesn't really like the bikini she has to wear.

    Loverboy Video
    I read on the Messageboard that some of you couldn't access the video yesterday. So, I have a new link for you. Check out MisterB's website,Mariah Style, for the video because he was the person who made it and yesterday, I didn't properly credit him because I didn't have all the information. So, make sure you check out his site and download the 20 second clip of Loverboy there because it's awesome!

    Macy Gray
    Once again, I don't like Macy Gray at all, so I know nothing about her songs or what she covers but here are two opinions from fellow MC fans about yesterdays tidbit:

  • Jason:
    It is not Macy Gray that stole sample because Mariah's idea was for "Loverboy." The song Macy used a line from was "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life." Mariah covers that song on GLITTER - thus it is a SEPARATE song from "Loverboy." The sample she was going to use on "LB" was dropped once this other person used it...which means it is not the Macy song.
  • Adam:
    Regina, Yes, Macy Gray did not steal from Mariah, technically, because she was a guest singer on the Black Eyed Peas' single "Request Line," which had the "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life" sample in it. Macy has made fun of Mariah before, so she probably heard Mariah was going to use it, but "Request Line" was out about 3 months ago, so the Mariah info may not have been out yet.

    Jam the Lines
    Mariah's new song Loverboy is now out and we need you to jam the request lines of your local radio station. Every little request helps to get the word out and we want to get her new single to #1. Please take a few minutes and get your voice heard. Check out the RequestMC page or Project Glitter for more details on how you can help. Mariah needs our help, let's not let her down!

    Vote for MC at mtv.com

    Mariah 85%

    Mariah denies Eminem affair
    MARIAH Carey has denied rumours that she cheated on boyfriend Luis Miguel when she spent the night with Eminem. The singer and the Slim Shady star had been having late-night drinks at New York's Church bar in the Tribeca Grand Hotel when she invited him back to her apartment.

    But her publicist said Mariah was just taking the rap star back home to watch a video, adding: "Mariah has worked with every rapper in the business and showed Eminem the video for her song Loverboy." Loverboy is on Carey's new album Glitter, which is due to be released in August.

    Thanks to Tom for the article taken from the Daily Record.

    The Changing Faces of J-LO
    SHE'S the girl who seems to have had more makeovers than Madonna, more costume changes than Mr Benn. If Hear'Say proved that pop can be as instant as a frozen TV dinner, J-Lo shows how close it can come to soap opera - with her playing every role.

    ...From sassy to classy, this is a girl who overcomes Mariah Carey's dismissal of her as "a dancer - as singers we're not in the same category" with sheer showmanship and a big, big wardrobe.

    ...Mariah might scoff but, as Madonna discovered years ago, you don't have to be able to sing 15 notes where a couple might do if you can change your look as often as you change your knickers. Never mind blondes, it's the chameleon girls who have more fun - and make more hard cash.

    Mariah in German Cinema and Elle
    First off, Honey and Kate, from Butterflies Are Free, sent me a scan of MC from the German movie magazine "Cinema" (check out scan in Gallery 54). Here is the translatation...

    "Especially the voice range of 8 octaves helped her having 15 US-#1 hits and more than 125 million discs sold wordwide in the past years. With the leading role in the drama "All That Glitters" the pop-diva is starting her movie career now - but not without making sure she'll have some success: if she shouldn't be convincing in the role of a singer who wants to become a star (which is Mariah's role), Mariah has a second chance for her success: she co-produced the soundtrack, too. Web: mariahcarey.com"
    Also Mariah is featurd in the June issue of British "Elle." They have an article about a designer and say that MC's "Rainbow" inspired him to design some rainbow belts. Thanks again to Honey and Kate!

    Updates
    There is a new Quote O' The Week and a new Pic O' The Week. Plus, I added a new Poll, which you can see on the left. Below are last weeks results:

    Do you think MC is jumping into a new movie too quickly?
       No, Oh my Gosh, it's great!!  (298) 76%
       Yes, she should focus on Glitter first  (92) 23%
    Total Votes: 390
    A lot of you are sending in places fans can request Mariah's new song, Loverboy and I am adding them all to the Request Page and Project Glitter. Check it out and PLEASE, request Loverboy on your local station.

    Loverboy screen caps
    You can check out a 20 second version of the Loverboy video by clicking here. Plus, Noel made some captures of the Loverboy video and you can check them out at his site by clicking here. The captures are really nice and you can see some of them below, that I made.

    Macy Gray steals from Mariah?
    Yesterday I added a story from MTV.com and in it, MC mentioned how someone stole her idea for a song. Firah thinks it could be Macy Gray because she recently did a song about a DJ and she sampled Last Night A DJ Saved My Life in it. I know nothing about Macy Gray, so I don't know if this is true or not!! So for right now, take it with a grain o' salt.

    Give MC YOUR letter
    Joey will be in the audience at the BET studios this Wednesday, when Mariah will be there. He wants you all to send your letters to him and he promises to give it to MC. Send your letters to Joe at the address below:
    LLJOE143@HOTMAIL.COM

    Speaking of BET, it's taped, not live
    BET's 106&Park airs around 6 pm EST everynight, so on Wednesday show, Mariah will not be appearing live, sinc eit will be recorded at about 3pm EST. It might show Wednesday night, but I highly doubt it. It will most likely show later this week or early next week. As soon as I find out anything, it will be posted here. Thanks to SUMar235 for reminding me about that.

    June 2, 2001...Update #4
    No Glitter trailor in Moulin Rouge!
    My friend told me that Glitter was featured on the Moulin Rouge previews, because her theater, AMC, just got the movie last night. However, her manager didn't get a chance to hook it up to Moulin, so no can do! AMC does have the Glitter trailor though, so hopefully, by next week they will add it in to a new movie. Other theaters must be getting it in now too, so keep your eyes open at those previews, ya never know, might see MC come on!

    Busy Bee
    Mariah Carey is one popular gal. During the 2 hours she spent having her hair done for a recent photo shoot, I'm told the singer received dozens of messages on her cell phone and pager.

    Taken from the June 12th issue of GLOBE tabloid (no pictures).

    Tommy Boy
    Sony Records big shot, Tommy Motolla, snagged two singing sirens-Mariah Carey in June 1993 (left) and Mexican thrush Thalia Sodi in December 2000.

    Taken from the June 12th issue of STAR tabloid. There is a picture of Tommy and Mariah walking down the steps after the wedding. Million and two pictures from that, so I wouldn't suggest buying it!

    People Magazine...
    There is NOT a new picture of Mariah in the June 11th issue of People magazine. It's a picture of MC from the 2000 AMA's and then the article about the restaurant. Sorry about that!

    Mariah on TEEN website
    Kathleen let me know that she found some information on the Teen Magazine website about Glitter. The picture featured is the one with Max and MC, with her arms around him.

    All That Glitters
    Starring: Mariah Carey, Max Beesley, Ann Magnuson, Eric Benét, Shawntae Harris (aka Da Brat)
    Why you should see it: Mariah takes her diva status to a whole new level when she plays one on the big screen.
    What it's about: Mariah stars as Billie, a musically gifted homegirl from New York who gets her big break and proceeds to make her way to the top.
    When it's coming out: August 31
    Rated: Not available

    Eminem and Mariah
    Looks like there's at least one pop star Eminem isn't actively feuding with. Need proof? He was seen gettin' chummy with Mariah Carey at a trendy New York City bar on Tuesday night, the New York Post reports. They hit it off so well, in fact, the musically-inclined duo left the bar for Mariah's swank digs around the corner. No funny business went on, though, Mariah being tight with BF Luis Miguel and all. (Get your mind out of the gutter!) She just wanted to show Em her latest video, "Loverboy."

    Taken from Alloy.com and thanks to Bogi for sending it to me.

    Details of Loverboy Video
    Nigel told me that in the UK, they showed a small clip of the new Loverboy video. Nigel told me she looked really pretty and at first, she was wearing a pink rubber suit, with black boots on the back of a racecar, on the track. Next she was dancing in pink shorts and a white top and she did a kick towards the camera. There was also a shot, sort of like a kaleidoscope view, showing 6 versions of Miss Mariah. Her hair was straight and blonde.

    The full video will be shown on CD:UK next Saturday, June 9th on channel ITV. Make sure you tune in, UK fans!

    Mariah is winning on MTV poll
    Harrison told me that Mariah is now winning the MTV poll with 76% of the votes. Coming is second, is Chris Connel and Rage with 15%, Eminem and Manson at only 5%, Britney/N'Sync at 3% and GunsNRoses at 1%. So keep on voting so we can keep MC up high and I can clearly tell, a lot of you went and voted, so give yourself a pat on the back!

    BOMBASTIC SOUNDTRACK
    .. We've already told you about Mariah Carey's upcoming movie, where she stars as a failing singer at the end of the 80's. Now we can add that she's also done with the soundtrack for the movie that she has recorded, and as we were told, the soundtrack is full of bombastic disco parts. The soundtrack will hit the stores over the country in mid August, much before the movie ..

    Taken from Maariv La'Noar and many thanks to Omri from Mariah Carey Glitters. Omri just did some mroe changes to his site and would like you all to check it out, so make sure you do!

    EXCLUSIVE....Loverboy Cover Information
    DragonBallz6917 told me that his local radio station, 100.3 The Beat, played the Loverboy song and afterwords, they were discussing the Loverboy cover. They said that MC is on the cover, with her new blonde hair and she is wearing shorts. The girl DJ, said MC looked pretty. So it's probably a view of Mariah from her knees up or something. She is wearing shorts in the video and shorts on the cover, wonder if that's her new bag now?

    Mariah on TRL on June 18th??
    According to VH1's tv short, which is usually about 95% of the time correct, it says that Mariah will be on TRL on June 18th at 3:30 pm. Maybe this friday, they will just premiere the video and then she will actually be in the studio on the 18th?? Ahh who knows, we will have to wait and see! Thanks Dan

    Mariah in Korea
    Here is what EJ told me:
    Mariah's comming Korea? That rumor is based on the Daily Sport, one of Korean Sports Newspagers. They reported about the launching celemony of Channel [V] Korea, they had invited several super stars like Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Whitney Houston, Ricky Martin, N'sync, Eminem, BSB, Duran Duran, Aqua and so on. Only 2 teams of them would be on the stage, they also told that Britney S., Christina A. and Bon Jovi would perform here. Although this news from the public newspaper's report, I don't believe Mariah's comming here on June, (the celmony is held on June, 18.) 'cause EMI Korea didn't recieved any papers from the head office of the US(?) and besideds the invitation list is too much awsome. All I just know is EMI Korea asked Mariah's Korean promotion to the head office, and her first single 'Loverboy' is gonna be released here on July, as you know.

    RUMOR VILLE...Mariah Engaged
    First of all, like I have said every other time, this has NOT been confirmed and it's taken from a tabloid. So don't believe this people. Thanks to Bine for sending it to me.

    Mariah Carey is reportedly engaged to be married!! The pop songstress is set to marry her boyfriend Luis Miguel, according to a report in the British tabloid "Daily Star". Miguel proposed during a vacation earlier this month. A huge diamond cluster ring was said to be the engagement jewellry of choice and Carey was said to be ecstatic.

    Making the Video for Loverboy on MTV this week!
    This is a special message from MariahCarey.com

    Loverboy
    Due to the tremendous demand for Mariah's new single, Loverboy, the song leaked to radio Friday night (6/1). It has been officially released worldwide one week early. Call your local radio station to have it played.

    Be sure to watch TRL the week of June 4 for a special Making of the Video.

    On Friday's TRL, they announced that MC would check in from the set of Loverboy sometime this week, plus they will premire the new video on Friday. SO I don't know if it is a full special or it is from the TRL newsbried between 3:30-5 pm EST. MAKE SURE you tape TRL everyday this week, because you don't want to miss this people!!

    Mariah To Beat Biters: How Ya Like Me Now
    LOS ANGELES — Mariah Carey launches fashion trends like other people change socks.

    Indeed, as she waited for a TV crew to get its lighting right during a recent interview, Mariah laid back on a chaise longue, kicked off one sparkly high-heeled shoe and had another inspiration.

    "Maybe I'll do the interview with one shoe off, just to be crazy," she said to her manager, who looked over and laughed. "Wouldn't that be great, if it caught on and people started wearing one shoe?"

    Don't laugh. It could happen, and Mariah would be OK with it.

    A different kind of biting recently did get under her skin, however. It had to do with a song she was recording for the soundtrack to her upcoming big-screen debut, "Glitter" (out August 31). (See "Mariah Gets 'Glitter' In Her Eyes")

    Although she wasn't willing to discuss specifics, Mariah had a word or two for the beat jacker who decided to use the same sample she was considering for a song on the "Glitter" soundtrack (August 21).

    "Let's just say they did me a favor," she said, her voice rising in mock anger as she wagged a finger at no one in particular. "And they know who they are. And thank you, sweetie. And your friend who did it with you!"

    While she conceded that anyone could have used the loop she was considering for the song, which she declined to name, Mariah said the lift exemplified why she took pains to shroud the "Glitter" recording sessions in secrecy.

    With the real songs laid into the film, Mariah said she could finally rest easy after months of trying to throw potential song scammers off her trail ("Mariah Mixes 'Glitter' With Streetwise Grit").

    "The whole thing was me saying, 'OK, how can this not get ripped off?' Let me come up with a fake title and not put my voice on this yet," she said, lamenting that it's still easy for in-process music to escape into a Napster-ized world.

    You're more likely to hear this complaint from rappers, who often anxiously guard their unreleased tracks for fear other artists will hijack their song titles, sample ideas or catch phrases.

    "Sometimes you really have to be concerned," said pal and producer DJ Clue, who produced two songs on the "Glitter" soundtrack. "Your ideas gets out there for a second ... people snatch one-liners from me and my crew all the time."

    Clue said he knew Mariah was concerned that word would get out about what samples they were using, especially on a track he produced that loops Indeep's early-'80s club classic "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life." The dreamy disco cover, laced with rock guitar, features guest vocals from Busta Rhymes and underground rapper Fabolous, whose album will be released on Clue's Desert Storm label this summer.

    The loop Mariah is most proud of definitely won't be lifted before the "Glitter" soundtrack comes out. Once bitten, twice shy, Mariah said she bought exclusive use of Cameo's 1986 hit "Candy" for the album's first single, "Loverboy."

    "That's the result of the thievery. But it's OK," she said. "Because you know what? This is way better than the other thing was. I firmly believe everything happens for a reason."

    When it comes to sartorial samples, though, Carey said she possesses a larger sense of humor.

    Someone ran up to Carey in New York recently and asked her for an autograph. No big deal. Happens all the time, right?

    What they asked her to sign, however, was a pair of jeans with the waistband cut off — her signature look from the "Heartbreaker" video. To add insult to injury, the custom pants were called "Mariah" jeans.

    "Was I surprised and wish I had a patent on it?" joked Mariah. "Yeah! But I don't think you can copyright something like ripping off the top of your jeans. And if you can, I didn't do it."

    Hi [High octave]. Okay, so I just finished a day of like, eight thousand interviews for all the people in the land. And I just wanted to say that like, I don't know. They were asking me questions about fans and stuff. And I said that - like something occurred to me, which is the fact that, people don't understand that when I give the answer that I really care about my fans, they think that I'm just like being like text-book-answer.

    Hold on. Someone's calling me. Oh, all right - they think that I'm just like giving the text-book-answer, but what I said is that I feel like my fans. Hold on. Someone is still calling me. I feel like my fans are kind of like an extended family to me. Because, I don't know - I went into a whole long spiral about it. But the thing is, is that I just wanted to call and say thank you. And I haven't called in a long time. And yeah, I just wanted to say that.

    And now the person hung up on me. Because I was thinking about it, and I realized I haven't called in a while because I've been on the biggest spiral of my life. [Laugh]. But anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for that. And thank you for like, making me feel like a whole person and things of that nature. So I will holler soon. Bye [High octave].

    And then I make ya touch ya knees to your elbow
    Oh girl
    Let me see them

    [Shawna]

    New pic of MC in People Magazine
    Courtney informed me that there is a small article and pic of MC in the June 11th issue of People magazine. The article talks about the Loverboy shoot, so I am guessing there is a pic of MC in her outfit, so I WILL have the scan for you later today!! PROMISE. Here is the article, which Courtney typed out for us:

    Maybe she was just researching a few new moves, but I hear that on May 17th Mariah Carey and about 20 crew members wandered into Snooky's Bikini Bar in Lancaster, California. The sexy star had spent the day shooting the video for "Loverboy", a single from the soundtrack of her big-screen drama Glitter, due in August. Coincidentally, as Carey and her entourage came into the bar, one of the exotic dancers, Sarah Blakely, 23, was shimmying to Carey's '98 hit "My All". Blakely, who is such a fan that she named her daughter after the singer, was thrilled when Carey picked a remix of her song "heartbreaker" for Blakely to dance to. Carey left after one hour, but not before tipping Blakey $250.

    EXCLUSIVE...Official Glitter Logo
    Yesterday, I added a brand new picture from Virgin's Germany site and now, here is the logo for Glitter, taken from the Virgin's Italian website. There is also a little paragraph from it and here is the translation, courtesy of Matt of MCAREY.nu...

    MARIAH CAREY, A FILM AND PREMIERE ALBUM ON VIRGIN!
    After the fuss provoked from the company of the contract with Virgin, here the first indiscretions on the return of Mariah Carey: a new film, Glitter, to come to Italian theaters in November, preceded from a new album! The first single Loverboy, soon on all the radios...watch out for Mariah!

    Radio Station Requests
    Okay, it's a good thing that some of you are already beginning to call your local radio stations. It's VERY IMPORTANT that we call and ask them to play Loverboy, because the video will premiere in a couple o' days!! Here are some fans who tried to get the song played. It seems none of them were successful in getting it on the air but it's awesome that they took 5 seconds to call, to help out Mariah.

  • Kyle:
    it is Kyle from Winnipeg Canada, I called my local radio station HOT103 and asked them if they had the new Mariah Carey Loverboy single and they said that they did and would try and get it on for me, unfortunatly I had to go back to school so I missed it if they played it but I will tell you if i hear it of not.
  • Janet:
    Just to let you know, they never played the song.  I waited ALL DAY.  I was so mad.  I called both major stations in this area. I am going to the ocean tomorrow morning, so I will try again next week.  Maybe I will have better luck then. 
  • Careyonmariah:
    After I read today's article about Loverboy hitting radio...I called in the local radio station, WBAD FM 94.3 and asked them do they have Mariah Carey's new song "Loverboy." The dj went and looked and he said yes we do and I requested it.  It is just a matter of time until I hear it!!!

    Vote for MC on MTV Poll
    Ricardo and Nacho informed me that if you click the link below, you can vote on a new MTV Poll, on what was the hottest news story. Mariah is #2 with the recent Glitter article and we want to help her out. Click the link below for direct access to the poll:

    Mariah's Jeans
    MaRiAhGuRl2000 told me that Mariah's pants, that she wore in the Heartbreaker Video, are being auctioned off by her local radio station for the Children's Miracle Network. Mariah autographed them "Love Mariah!"

    M J Cole remixes new Mariah Carey single
    M J Cole has remixed the new Mariah Carey single, Loverboy. Cole has also started writing material for future collaborations with Tom Jones. His remix of Bran Van 3000's Astounded, featuring Curtis Mayfield, is out on June 4.

    Carey's Loverboy, featuring the M J Cole remix, is released on July 16, with an album due to follow on August 20. Cole, speaking ahead of his two appearances at the Heineken Green Energy Festival in Cork and Galway this Irish Bank Holiday Weekend, told the mcd.ie website: "They just kinda phoned up on the Wednesday and on Friday and I was on the plane going to Los Angeles.

    "They've got probably one of the most famous studios in the world. The Record Plant - Michael Jackson has just recorded half of his album there and all those top R 'n' B bods record all their stuff over there. So I had three days in there with Mariah Carey hanging around which was pretty cool.

    "I couldn't even have a cassette in the studio I was working in to listen to. I had to go into the studio where Mariah was working, listen to it with her twice. And that was it!"

    Taken from Anavova and many thanks to my Mariah4 buddy Mariah Online.

    NEW ALBUM AND MOVIE DEBUT
    Last month Mariah Carey signed a million-dollar record deal with Virgin Records. Her first album released by the new company will be out on August 20th. It'll be called "Glitter" and will be the soundtrack for her first big movie "All That Glitters". She's playing the singer Billie on her way becoming a star. The soundtrack will feature songs like the 80's hit "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life". The song "Lover Boy" will be the first one taken from the soundtrack, and it'll hit German stores on July 06th (that's wrong, Virgin Germany announced the release for July 02nd - Honey&Kate) and it'll give you a taste of the new album. We'll probably be able to watch her acting talent on September 27th in the cinemas. For more information go to: http://www.mariahcarey.com/
