Mariah's Trainer Reveals Her Weight Loss Secrets
Posted by Jonny on Thursday, 23-May-2013, 4:30PM EDT
On May 8, Grammy-winning superstar Mariah Carey bared a new body that set jaws dropping as she premiered her new "#Beautiful" music video during American Idol.
Now, her personal trainer, Bernardo Coppola, sits down exclusively with Life & Style and dishes on Mimi's recent weight loss.
Bernardo tells Life & Style, out now, "We do a lot of swimming, aquatic exercises, cardio and weights for toning," adding that he sees her four to six times a week, "even with her busy schedule."
The key, he says, is switching up workouts so they stay unexpected and fun. That, and following his Body by Bernardo diet plan: Six small meals a day really rev his clients' metabolisms.
"Working out, dedication and specific nutrition," Bernardo shares, "is what makes Mariah sculpted and lean."
And it's definitely working - hubby Nick Cannon's one lucky man!
For more behind Mariah's diet and exercise regimen, pick up this week’s issue of Life & Style, on newsstands now.

Miguel Makes "#Beautiful" Music With Mariah Carey
Posted by Jonny on Sunday, 19-May-2013, 12:10AM EDT
Miguel had a "beautiful" time working with Mariah Carey on their hit single.
Following the release of "#Beautiful," the 27-year-old singer dished about what it was like to work with the music superstar on the track.
"She's kind of one of the most quick witted and sharp individuals I've ever met," Miguel told us at Wango Tango. "You never know how it's gonna be with another creative individual and how their creative process works with yours, but it was definitely one of the coolest and easiest sessions I've ever done with another artist."
Calling the American Idol judge "brilliant," Miguel added that Mariah has "a lot of foresight."
"Everything she does is very deliberate, which is refreshing," he continued. "She knows exactly what she wants and what she's doing, and the fact that she chose to keep me on the record speaks volumes."
Miguel Talks To Billboard About Working With Mariah
Posted by Jonny on Saturday, 18-May-2013, 10:40PM EDT
Miguel took the Billboard charts by storm with his hit, "Adorn," and Wale's "Lotus Flower Bomb" which he's featured on. "Adorn" is a finalist in the Billboard Music Awards' Top R&B Song categories.
The singer-songer, producer has something special in store for his performance of "Adorn" at the Billboard Music Awards tomorrow (May 19), airing live on ABC from Las Vegas.
"I'm always looking for something that I haven't seen before," he told Billboard. "[Also] something that's going to make an impact [by] using simple elements but creatively so it makes people think a bit."
Miguel recently collaborated with Mariah Carey for her single, "#Beautiful." The duet between both singers continues to make an impact on the charts, currently at No. 24 on the Hot 100.
"Mariah [Carey] is, she is so fast. Her mind is is extmrely sharp," he said of the songstress. "I didn't really know what to expect, how involved she would be creatively but ... she was really behind the vision of '#Beautiful' being a duet between her and I. The video went with all of that. She's a mastermind."

Billboard: Mariah Carey Adds To Hot 100 Legacy
Posted by Jonny on Thursday, 16-May-2013, 9:40PM EDT
With the debut of "#Beautiful," Carey pads her historic Hot 100 discography. Plus, Michael Jackson's music is reaching new generations and Rod Stewart returns.
As "#Beautiful" bounds onto the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 24, Mariah Carey continues as one of the chart's most accomplished visitors dating to its Aug. 4, 1958, launch.
The lead single (featuring Miguel) from Carey's 13th studio album marks her 45th Hot 100 hit.
Here's an updated look at the women with the most appearances:
73, Aretha Franklin 58, Taylor Swift 56, Madonna 56, Dionne Warwick 53, Connie Francis 48, Brenda Lee 46, Nicki Minaj 45, Mariah Carey 41, Rihanna 41, Barbra Streisand 40, Mary J. Blige 40, Diana Ross 39, Whitney Houston 39, Janet Jackson
With "#Beautiful" bowing, Carey also claims her 35th top 40 Hot 100 hit, tying Island Def Jam labelmate Rihanna's total.
Here's a look at the solo females to make the most visits to the chart's top 40:
49, Madonna 43, Aretha Franklin 41, Taylor Swift 35, Mariah Carey 35, Rihanna 33, Connie Francis 32, Janet Jackson 31, Dionne Warwick 29, Whitney Houston 29, Brenda Lee
Carey continues to boast one of the most vaunted of all Hot 100 records: her 18 No. 1s are the most among solo acts (and second overall only to the Beatles' 20). With 54 million albums sold, Carey is also the best-selling female album artist since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking U.S. sales in 1991. She trails only overall leader Garth Brooks (68.6 million) and runners-up the Beatles (64.4 million).
From Billboard's "The Juice" Column:
With a 39-7 catapult on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, "#Beautiful," featuring Miguel, becomes the 27th top 10 hit for Mariah Carey. The singer was previously tied with Whitney Houston for the fourth-most top 10s all-time for a female but now claims the position all to herself. Ahead of Carey on the list are Aretha Franklin (52 top 10s), Dinah Washington (35) and Janet Jackson (31). ("All-time" refers to the char's earliest incarnation, dating back to 1942.)
MOST TOP 10 HITS BY A WOMAN ON HOT R&B/HIP-HOP SONGS:
Aretha Franklin - 52 Dinah Washington - 35 Janet Jackson - 31 Mariah Carey - 27 Whitney Houston - 26
The last time Mariah visited the top tier was in 2008 when "Touch My Body" peaked at No. 2. By reaching the region in only two weeks, "#Beautiful" joins Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie," featuring Jay-Z, Lil Wayne's "Love Me," featuring Drake and Future, and Drake's "Started from the Bottom" as the fastest-rising songs of 2013 – all reaching the top 10 in their second week.

Below, find Mariah's chart positions in the May 25, 2013 issue of Billboard magazine.

From Yahoo Music's Chart Watch: "#Beautiful" by Mariah Carey featuring Miguel enters the Hot 100 at #24, lower than I expected. I bet it's lower than Carey expected, too. The ideal outcome for Carey would have been for Ryan Seacrest to grandly announce on tonight's American Idol that Carey's song entered the Hot 100 at #1. Carey has accomplished that chart miracle three times (more often than any other artist) with "Fantasy," "One Sweet Day" (a collabo with Boyz II Men) and "Honey."
"#Beautiful" enters Hot Digital Songs at #10, with first-week sales of 114K. It's Carey's eighth top 10 hit on the digital sales chart; her first since "Obsessed" nearly four years ago. It holds at #44 on the Hot 100 Airplay chart. It falls short of the Streaming Songs chart with 461K first-week streams.
This doesn't mean the song is a bomb. It merely means it may take more time to build into genuine hit status. I still think it will come through. It helps that it's a great record–one of the most appealing summer jams since Janet Jackson's "That's The Way Love Goes" 20 years ago.
"#Beautiful" is vying to become Carey's 29th top 10 hit on the Hot 100; her first since "Obsessed" hit #7 in September 2009. It's vying to become the first top 10 hit for Miguel, the highly-touted R&B singer whose breakout hit "Adorn" climbed as high as #17.
The casting on this record is ideal. Carey is a household name with a long string of hits. Miguel is far less well-known, but there's probably more heat and buzz on him within the industry "# Beautiful" will appear on Carey's 11th (non-holiday) studio album, which is due this summer.

"#Beautiful" Debuts at #24 on Hot 100
Posted by Jonny on Wednesday, 15-May-2013, 3:06PM EDT
The Hot 100's highest debut belongs to Mariah Carey's "#Beautiful," featuring Miguel, which begins at No. 24. The track launched on Hot 100 Airplay at No. 44 last week with 31 million impressions after just two days of airplay, aided heavily on its first day (May 6) by coordinated airplay on Clear Channel Media and Entertainment stations. This week, with that hefty first day of spins now in the previous tracking period, "#Beautiful" maintains its No. 44 Hot 100 Airplay rank and 31 million in audience (up less than 1%). Following its first full week of sales, it enters Hot Digital Songs at No. 10 (114,000), marking her eighth top 10 on the tally and first since "Obsessed" reached No. 6 in 2009. "#Beautiful" falls shy of the Streaming Songs chart with 461,000 first-week streams.
The lead single from Carey's forthcoming 13th studio album charges 32-7 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and 16-2 on R&B Songs and debuts at No. 1 on R&B Digital Songs.
