Posted by Lynn on Monday, 31-Oct-2011, 6:31PM EDT
Below are recent scans from French magazines Gala, Public and Closer.


Gala:
Mariah Carey - her baby twins entertain us already. We couldn't wait to see them, the voluptuous diva's son & daughter appeared for the first time on US television... with style. Just like their mother, they already bat eyelashes, they strike a pose, they don't care being late. As a proof of that, we had to wait for 6 months until we got to see their cute faces.

The article also gives a summary of the 20/20 interview with Barbara Walters.

Public:
"She showed off her twins for the first time. Why she hid them for so long? Better late than never, it took 6 months to see Monroe & Moroccan's cute faces. Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon's twins born on April 30."

The article talks about the "Fantasy" Live story, the fertility treatment, the "We Belong Together" lullaby scene. They conclude by saying that unlike her marriage with Tommy Mottola, with the birth of her twins her life is now a fairytale.

That was an experience of pure joy rising for them and as you can see also from me 'cause I get great delight in seeing other people have a good time. Everybody always thinks it's about the things. I know for sure it isn't about the things. It's about the feeling the comes from the things.

Bieber Has Difficulty Singing Mariah's Christmas Song
Posted by Lynn on Friday, 28-Oct-2011, 4:09PM EDT
The Biebs' ever-present manager, Scooter Braun, reveals why the "Mistletoe" singer's voice is a little deeper and smoother on his new album, saying it's because his vocal cords have matured.

"Vocally, his balls have dropped," Braun told Billboard.

Braun explained that the "Baby" singer will still be able to charm his fans with that voice of his, even if it changes as he matures. Braun said that the remix of "All I Want for Christmas Is You" with Mariah Carey on Bieber's new Christmas album was a bit difficult for him to sing, because Mariah wanted the song sung in her original key.

"That was the hardest song to do," Braun tells the magazine. "A year ago that would have been no problem."

Bieber agreed that it "was high," but that he was eventually able to hit the notes.

"Yes, that was high, but I grinded it out and we got it down," the singer said.

Mariah Enlists Big Jim Wright & Randy Jackson
Posted by Jonny on Thursday, 27-Oct-2011, 5:08PM EDT
Now that Mariah Carey has debuted her twins to the world and discussed all of the intimate details of her tumultuous pregnancy, she has become completely focused on her next studio album. In fact, the diva has summoned several industry heavyweights to the studio, including producers James "Big Jim" Wright and Randy Jackson.

However, this wasn't the first time that Carey has worked with Wright or Jackson. She previously collaborated with the former on several tracks from her critically lauded The Emancipation of Mimi album, such as "Fly Like a Bird" and "I Wish You Knew.". Additionally, Jackson has been a member of Carey’s band since her debut and crafted most of her Merry Christmas II You alongside Wright and Marc Shaiman.

Other named contributors to Carey's new project thus far include Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat. The latter confirmed that she wrote new material for record earlier this month. Whether the LP will be released via one of the Epic Label Group’s labels, as hinted by LA Reid, has yet to be confirmed.

See what Wright said about his recent studio session with Carey below:

Trying to sleep but can’t grrrrr Was in the studios late with @YO_RANDYJACKSON working on some @MariahCarey tracks.

Carey is certainly doing her best to ensure that her new album is the hit that she needs at this stage in her career. The named collaborators have masterminded some of her most praised material and have exhibited a unique understanding of her voice.

However, it would also be a thrilling occurrence if James Poyser – the producer of Carey’s "Mine Again" from The Emancipation – and Marc Shaiman became involved in the project. Of course, Carey’s former writing partners Walter Afanasieff and Ben Margulies would also be welcome additions to the album.

Indeed, Nick Cannon confirmed that Carey is seeking inspiration from her debut album and the Emotions LP. Hence, working with Afanasieff and Margulies, who were the main contributors to those records, would be an excellent way for her to channel that artistic energy. Still, Wright and Jackson's inclusions are enough to stimulate excitement!

Uncle Murda On Working With Mariah Carey
Posted by Jonny on Sunday, 23-Oct-2011, 2:57PM EDT
Uncle Murda recently sat down with Angie Martinez on New York's Hot 97, where he talked about his recent collaboration with Mariah Carey on the "re-remix" of his "The Warning."



Angie Martinez: I remember when Uncle Murda had 'Bullet Bullet" out and I had Mariah Carey on my show, and then I was asking her what are her songs, what she was feeling right now, and she was like "I like 'Bullet Bullet!'"

Uncle Murda: And from there it's been on. Me and Mariah got a good relationship.

AM: You do?

UM: Yes.

AM: Really?

UM: She's actually on "The Warning" remix.

AM: Shut up!!

UM: "The Warning" re-remix.

AM: Uncle Murda, are you sitting in my studio right now telling me that Mariah Carey--

UM: Is on "The Warning" re-remix.

AM: Is on "The Warning" remix!!

UM: Yes, It's already done and everything. And the mixing gotta get done, but her vocals is done.

AM:Do you promise that you will not send it up here, but will you bring the record-

UM: I will bring it up here personally. Personally.

AM: Please do that. That is super dope. That's the last person on the planet that I expected-

UM: And this is the first thing she actually did since she had the babies.

AM: Yes, no I know! I just saw the other day that she's about to do some big Barbara Walters special, and that was like the first interview that she's done since the babies and she's coming back out. So she's doing Barbara Walters and Uncle Murda!

UM: That's right.

AM: You didn't take her to, like, a plush, fancy studio?

UM: No, actually I asked her, did she want to go to, um, Daddy's house And then she was like, "No, I want to go to your spot! Let's go to your studio." So we went to my studio in the city and we made it happen. She wanted to be in the hood!

No Post-Birth Beer for Mariah Carey
Posted by Lynn on Wednesday, 19-Oct-2011, 3:46PM EDT

Mariah says that she did not drink a beer after giving birth to her twins.

After giving birth to not just one baby but two, you might excuse a new mom for wanting a drink... but singer Mariah Carey is quashing earlier reports that she had a beer after her twins Moroccan and Monroe were born last spring at a Los Angeles hospital.

The beer allegation prompted the involvement of California Child Protective Services, who, Carey said, investigated whether the babies were subject to "neglect."

"It just doesn't make any sense," Carey told Barbara Walters in an exclusive interview airing on "20/20″ Friday.

Carey said that, at the time, the newborns — who are now six months old — were being cared for in the hospital's neo-natal intensive care unit.

"The babies were in the most protective environment because it's the NICU," she said.

Carey said the beer story started with a suggestion by a nurse who brought the singer a beer, saying it would help improve lactation.

But, Carey said, "I didn't even drink the beer."

Justin Bieber Marvels At Mariah Carey Christmas Collab
Posted by Lynn on Wednesday, 19-Oct-2011, 1:27PM EDT
As Justin Bieber told MTV News during the live stream that followed the premiere of his "Mistletoe" video, the Busta collaboration is one he'll always remember ... mostly because he considers it to be quite brilliant.

"If you really think about it, it's genius, because it's rapping on a Christmas album ... and, like, I'm rapping on it. And then it's singing," he explained. "It's cool. [Busta's] got, like, a percussive voice to him [and] the beat was so crazy. I'm actually playing drums on that song, playing the snare."

And then, of course, there's his collabo with none other than Mariah Carey, on a version of her instant-classic "All I Want for Christmas Is You." If you thought he was blown away by his Busta team-up, well, you haven't heard anything yet. And he owes it all to none other than Randy Jackson.

"Mariah Carey is doing it with me! It's incredible. So excited," he said of "All I Want." "We wanted Mariah from the beginning, but we kind of thought it was really hard, so we didn't really push the idea. But she's on my label, so we reached out to some people, she got in contact with us, and Randy Jackson was actually at the studio with us, and I was like, 'Yo, you think you can help get Mariah on the Christmas album?' And he was like, 'I'm actually going to see her in New York on Monday,' and I was like 'Yo, go do that!'"

In between they played interviews the monitors. All the bartenders had cute shirts on with the name of the album on the sleeve and the lead single written around the collar.

Da Brat Plots Comeback With Mariah Carey
Posted by Jonny on Wednesday, 12-Oct-2011, 9:57PM EDT
Da Brat was only released from prison in February but she is already planning her career comeback. During a red carpet interview with The Jasmine Brand at the 2011 BET Hip-Hop Awards, the rap icon spoke about her upcoming projects, which include a collaboration with diva Mariah Carey.

However, this won't be the first song that Da Brat will pen for Carey. She also contributed several verses to her close friend's remixes, such as "Always Be My Baby (Ft. Xscape)" and co-wrote "OOC" from the E=MC2 album.

Carey has already launched the recording process of her new LP alongside Jermaine Dupri. She will also appear on Justin Bieber's upcoming "Under the Mistletoe" Christmas record with a new version of her classic "All I Want For Christmas Is You."

Hear what Da Brat had to say below.



With both women keenly focused on rebuilding their respective careers, a collaboration between Da Brat and Carey has the potential to be a major success. Besides, the pair have several life experiences to share with the world and the writing skills to craft a hit.

Greatest Song Of The '00s: What SHOULD It Have Been?
Posted by Lynn on Wednesday, 12-Oct-2011, 9:42AM EDT
If you tuned in to VH1's five-day 100 Greatest Songs of the '00s countdown last week, you already know that pre-preggers Beyonce took home the #1 spot with hubby-featured smash, "Crazy In Love." Good for them, right? The collabo is over eight years old, and still carries with it a sense of sonic recognition that might one day be categorized as "timeless."

If you ask VH1 countdown's pundits, however, there is a wide range of respectfully-dissenting opinions on what video should have been #1. Tim and Damian from OK Go suggested that Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" should have earned the coveted slot, our former colleague Rich Juzwiak was vying for Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together," and a number of other commentators from the show made arguments for OutKast, Kelly Clarkson, and Eminem.

Take the VH1 poll and let them know that "We Belong Together" should have been crowned THE Greatest Song of the '00s in their comments section!

Nick on The Talk: 'Mariah is a Diva'
Posted by Lynn on Sunday, 09-Oct-2011, 11:06PM EDT
We live a in a world where the word DIVA is a compliment, something to aspire to be. In order to be a DIVA one must have the attitude, the over-the-top character and finally the resources.

Nick Cannon tells the ladies of The Talk that his wife is an absolute Diva! The last time Nick was on The Talk was two days before the birth of the twins. Julie asked if the birth was a big "production" like she hoped it would be. Nick realized that he was merely the Production Manager during the birth ceremony of his twins. Nick had a camera in one hand and adjusted the lights with the other hand. Mariah previously told Nick to make sure the lighting was good. That wasn't the only instruction Nick received.


The biggest responsibility that Nick had during the birth was to play DJ. Mariah wanted the twins to be born to a certain song being played in the background. The song Mariah picked was the Live version of Fantasy Live in Madison Square Garden because Mariah wanted the babies to come out to Applause! Hours after the birth of the twins, Mariah was in a full gown and makeup so that her and Nick could renew their vows. Now that is a DIVA with little Divas in the making. Nick calls Mariah his Dream Girl.

Mariah and the Greatest Holiday Song Ever Recorded
Posted by Lynn on Saturday, 08-Oct-2011, 11:10AM EDT
Like Nat King Cole, Elvis Presley, and Jewel before him, Justin Bieber is putting out a Christmas album this holiday season. It's called Under the Mistletoe, and while that title suggests that it should be a bunch of gingerbread-fueled Yuletide slow jams, it almost certainly won't be that.

Still, it should be a little livelier than your usual rocking around the tree. The 15 tracks on Mistletoe are both originals and traditional tunes, and there are a bunch of drop-ins from big stars, including Usher, Boyz II Men, and Busta Rhymes (who we hope will battle rap Shawty Mane on a track called "Drummer Boy").

But the biggest headline is the presence of Mariah Carey, who will perform a duet with Bieber on "All I Want For Christmas Is You." The tune, which appeared on Carey's own 1994 Christmas album Merry Christmas, is one of her biggest hits (it made Merry Christmas the third best-selling Christmas album of all time) and also happens to be the best holiday song ever written.

It has everything: A great hook, an incredible vocal performance by Carey, a festive vibe, and that great video where she frolics in the snow. It's indestructible, and it should make you want to trim a tree or roast chestnuts or whatever you do to celebrate the season.

Will Bieber be able to improve on the perfection of "All I Want For Christmas Is You"?

Mariah To Appear on Justin Beiber's Christmas Album?
Posted by Jonny on Monday, 03-Oct-2011, 11:37AM EDT
Justin Bieber is more than excited to release his Christmas album. He worked hard on the songs and has tons of artists featured including Boyz II Men and The Band Perry, but one rumored artist is getting some extra attention today.

"One of [Justin's] dancers actually tweeted that [he] has finished a track with an artist of a different status," Perez Hilton reports. That artist would be Mariah Carey! Of course MC has one of the best Christmas albums ever and her ever-popular holiday songs are part of many music repertoires around the world. If she did collaborate with The Biebs, you can expect it to be epic!

There has not been any direct confirmation that Carey joined Justin Bieber in the studio, but Justin's dancer is assuring fans that the duet totally happened! "Had to tweet that cause apparently people didn't believe me. Haha Justin Bieber featuring Mariah Carey. Believe it (sic)," he tweeted.

No hints as to what song they recorded (if it was traditional or new), but fans are very excited to hear it. Don't forget, that some of the money raised in album sales will be donated to charity. It's a win-win so be sure to pick up Under the Mistletoe next month.

Mariah: Five Octaves In One Minute!
Posted by Jonny on Saturday, 01-Oct-2011, 12:01AM EDT
It's no secret that Mariah Carey has range, but that's just become even more apparent: A clever video has surfaced on YouTube that splices together Mimi singing through what the video claims are five octaves, two notes, and two semitones.

"That's over 65 keys!!!!" the video says at the end. You knew she could do it, but actually hearing her go from low to high in a cascade - with each note flashing on the screen as it happens, each about one second apart 0 - is pretty stunning.

Through the video, you can identify a variety of Mariah's songs in the background - everything from her soaring rendition of "O Holy Night" to "Forever" - although a huge portion of it is pulled from her two notable Christmas albums. (Go figure.)

If you don't already appreciate the range Mariah has, you will after the jump:
