Mariah Participates in "Chairs For Charity"
Posted by Lynn on Wednesday, 29-Nov-2006, 3:35PM EST
How do you help combat homelessness in New York City? Six celebrities and designers have taken a stand by participating in Minwax® CHAIRS FOR CHARITY, a design event and online auction to benefit Furnish a Future, a program of The Partnership for the Homeless. All six expressed their creativity by designing and decorating a chair in their own signature style using wood stains and finishes. From a whimsical blue "anchor chair" for television host Meredith Vieira, to a powerful red, white and blue New York Giants chair covered with 30 team autographs, the unique designs express the personality and creativity of an exceptional group.

Accepting the creative challenge were The Honorable Michael R. Bloomberg, mayor of New York City, with designer Jamie Drake; Grammy Award-Winning singer Mariah Carey, with designer Mario Buatta; NBC's "Today" show host Meredith Vieira, with designer Chris Madden; tennis star Venus Williams; The New York Giants, and NASCAR driver Elliott Sadler.

All of the participants donated their time and expertise to make the project a success, and from the look of the chairs, many of which are being finished to their specifications in the Minwax® design workshops, they expressed themselves with color and flair. The designs include:

--Mayor Bloomberg and Jamie Drake's striking tribute to the Big Apple, stained in official colors blue and orange, and incorporating the Seal of the City of New York.
--Pop superstar Mariah Carey's eye-popping lavender balloon chair, interpreted by Mario Buatta. (see picture below)
--Meredith Vieira's nautical "anchor" chair interpreted in breezy blues by Chris Madden.
--Tennis great Venus Williams' dramatic period chair in gleaming ebony and orange silk.
--NASCAR driver Elliott Sadler's edgy racing stripe and checkered flag rendition.
--A bold and colorful autographed chair from one of the country's top sports teams: The New York Giants.

Each chair makes a design statement that's uniquely personal and very collectible. Minwax®, the leading manufacturer of wood finishing and wood care products, is underwriting the project.


Chair designed by Mario Buatta for Mariah Carey
Renowned interior designer Mario Buatta designed this enchanting Balloon Chair for musical legend Mariah Carey. This eye-popping masterpiece boasts an interior of regal lavender and an elegant butterfly and bamboo print exterior complimented by a frame stained in White Oak. The attention to detail makes this design truly sing. (Click image for an enlarged view)

Online bidding for the chairs will take place on eBay from December 8 through December 17, 2006.

Two Albums From Mariah Carey in 2007
Posted by Lynn on Tuesday, 28-Nov-2006, 6:40PM EST
Universal Music Group Chief Executive Doug Morris said on Tuesday the world's largest music company will post its best ever revenue and profit in 2007 thanks to new releases from its top-selling artists.

Morris said Universal and other music companies are also starting to see new revenue streams from digital sources, including Apple's iTunes online music service and iPod digital media player, and mobile phone ringtones.

"I think that next year we're going to have our best year," he said at the Reuters Media Summit in New York. "I think our revenues and our profits will be the best we've ever had."

Morris said Universal Music, owned by French media giant Vivendi, will benefit hugely from new albums from Eminem, 50 Cent and two albums from Mariah Carey.

"You can see there are myriad streams of income starting to come into the record companies," said Morris. "We're going to make money from MySpace, we're going to make money from YouTube, we're going to make money from Zune...we will make tremendous amount of money from telephones."

We've endured the rumors about Eminem and Mariah since early 2001. Things have been quiet on the Eminem-front until recently. Whether or not he and Mariah had encounters beyond friendship, it seems Eminem has really had a tough time seeking a new muse.

Read Robin's newest rumor entry entitled, Shady Business in her Have You Heard? column to find out when it all started, share why you think the relationship turned so bitter, and give your opinion on why he's still hanging on.

"Mariah Wish Icon Award"
Posted by Adi on Tuesday, 28-Nov-2006, 5:52PM EST
The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles held its 7th annual Wish Night Award Gala at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Friday, November 17, 2006. The star-studded event honored those who have supported the organization's mission to fulfill a wish for every child with a life-threatening illness in Los Angeles County and is expected to net over $225,000.

Receiving the Inaugural Wish Icon Award from wish child presenter, and namesake, Mariah Escamilla, Mariah Carey conveyed how she felt to work with the Foundation and to be honored with the Inaugural Wish Icon Award, which will hereafter be called the Mariah Wish Icon Award.

"Every time I've ever done anything with the Make-A-Wish Foundation I've felt blessed," said Carey, who added that she "felt like it was fulfilling her wishes too" because she had also once been "a kid with a dream." Carey then smiled and held up the 14-year-old's hand and asked the audience to "give it up" for her presenter "little Mariah."

Thank You, Fans
"... just wanted to give you all a lovely shout-out and let you know that I have been having so much fun seeing you on the tour, getting all the nice little gifts, getting all the love at the shows and everything has been absolutely wonderful... to come sing the new songs to the folks, the wonderful fans and honestly it's way surpassed my expectations in terms of just the love and everything that the fans have given me so I want to say 'Thank you'."

Creative Signs
"Sometimes I can focus on them 'cause it's not gonna mess me up while singing but sometimes I can't even look at them 'cause they're too funny. Like some fans are hilarious and they are also really sweet like there is one tonight, there's this sign that said this couple was gonna name their new baby "Mimi" and I thought that was so sweet... another couple in another city, they asked me to sing an old song that was like an album cut, and I was like, 'How do you even remember that song?' - called Melt Away - 'cause they're gonna get married to it. Or they just happen to have that sign up, I was like, 'Oh yeah, Melt Away who knew they even remembered it. So that was cool. There have been so many creative, really, really sweet signs. My fans, they know that it's unparalleled - the creativity they have."

Getting It Together
"I think that's more than nervous. I'm just... before I get on stage, there's a lot going on. You know, there's a lot of technical things and different issues so it's just about being centered and getting it together."

Encore Song
"I like doing We Belong Together because it's just kind of like almost like a happy ending at the end of the show. It's really, really nice to hear the people in the audience and how they react when they hear the beginning of the song."

  • Latest update on "Tennessee": According to Director Aaron Woodley, filming for "Tennessee" has now been pushed back to mid-January, 2007.

  • Vote now, vote often! Click this link or the button on the sidebar to vote for Mariah's "Shake It Off" as your Favorite R&B Song at the People's Choice Awards.

  • On Fox 11 News recently, the guy from TMZ.com was discussing how Britney Spears' comeback would be of Mariah proportion. Host Jillian Barbarie interrupted by saying, "Well, Mariah's got that voice and you can't hold back a talent like that."

  • TMZ.com's "Z List" this week: "Mariah Carey: While the Black Eyed Peas went 3-for-3 at this year's American Music Awards, the Turnpike Tunester and all-time AMA nominations leader got an 0-for-3 black eye, coming on the six-inch stiletto heels of pissing off fellow absentee winner Slim Shady, with her denials of a 2001 relationship, and wrangling in court with a producer over a cancelled Hong Kong tour date. True, Carey did collect the Make-A-Wish Foundation "Icon Award" last Friday at the Beverly Hills Hotel, but that was, in part, because of her willingness to allow children to take her place at music awards shows. Hmmm ... forgive us for being cynical, but seat-filling in the face of a shutout doesn't quite seem quite the same as getting a steroid-supplemented big-leaguer to hit one out of the park for you." Post your comments here.

  • A silent auction will be held during the annual fundraiser for Brandon Center, a shelter for battered or homeless women and their children, on December 2nd at the Tracks Event Center, Denver, CO. Organizer Max Martinez says the auction will include "bags from Stella McCartney, Elton John tickets, a trip to Mexico; even Mariah Carey is sending us a big basket with her CDs and signed posters."

  • Below are scans from the December 4th issues of OK! and In Touch magazines.


  • Celebrity Photographer Richard McLaren recently spoke to UK's OK! magazine about his favorite and least favorite stars. Have you had to deal with any other divas and their tantrums? They say that about Mariah Carey, and MC is the nicest person. I love her to death. I just treat her the same as I treat my assistants, with the same respect. Sharon Stone said to me that she'd never worked with a photographer that had so much respect for his assistants. I just said I was once an assistant. I never forget my South London roots."

"Tennessee" To Start Filming in December
Posted by Adi on Friday, 24-Nov-2006, 8:19PM EST
After several delays, Tennessee will finally commence principal photography this December, 2006. Director Aaron Woodley and producer Lee Daniels revealed the following details about the movie's storyline to Heroes of Mariah:
The two brothers were abused by their father when they were kids and so they ran away from Tennessee to escape him. Ten years later, the younger brother is diagnosed with cancer. His only possibility to survive is to find a bone marrow donor, which is their father. On their journey back to Tennessee, they meet Crystal who aspires to be a country-western singer. Her abusive husband is not very supportive of her ambitions and wants her to stay a housewife.
Crystal tries her luck in Nashville, while the two brothers keep searching for their father.
The most ironic part of the storyline is the fact that Mariah's character Crystal is not a good singer, which makes the realization of her dream as a country star more questionable.

From the November 24, 2006 issue of the French journal, 20 Minutes, page 20.

Who Wants Mariah Carey's Fur?
Scandal in the United States! While the R&B singer Mariah Carey tries to get animal rights organizations on her side, a really sad news of stealing has been reported. It clearly sullies her generosity. Flash-back: A few weeks ago, Mariah Carey received a $7,500 fur coat from a rich admirer. The singer immediately got in touch with PETA to donate her gift. The association decided to send the coat to Mongolian nomads so as to protect them from the cold. Unfortunately, after being sent in a container, the coat disappeared during a stopover in Switzerland. It is not known yet when was the flight in question. Mariah has not commented yet on the subject.

The following article is featured in the latest issue of Germany's "InTouch" (issue #48).

Mariah Carey: a role model for everything fashion!
In America, they are already big as actresses - but also as designers. And it was for their contribution to the fashion world that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have recently been honored at this year's Teen Vogue party held at New York's Gramercy Park Hotel. Anyway, while choosing their outfits for the said event, they apparently allowed some inspiration: from the soul queen herself, Mariah Carey. Ashley wore the singer's sexy black gown in a sequin covered version by designer Halston. And the red Calvin Klein dress on Mary-Kate resembled one of Mariah's previous outfits. Only a coincidence or a deliberate intention? We don't know... but they look great though!

Hollywood's Most Influential Celebrity Activists
Posted by Lynn on Thursday, 23-Nov-2006, 8:38AM EST
Finding a celebrity with a cause is about as easy as finding a plastic surgeon in Los Angeles. Charities have long relied on boldfacers to help promote their causes. Jerry Lewis' annual muscular dystrophy telethon dates back to 1966. Sexy actress Brigitte Bardot retired from Hollywood in 1974 to devote all her time to animal rights. Sometimes their motives aren't entirely selfless.

Controversial celebrities exploit charity work as a way to buff up an image, or perhaps even for tax purposes. Two years ago, supermodel Cindy Crawford earned scorn from animal rights activists for her decision to appear in a fur advertisement--despite having starred in a famous billboard ad nearly a decade earlier, sponsored by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which read, "I'd rather go naked than wear fur."

But these days, stars are committing far more than a donation and cameo appearances at annual charity galas as part of their philanthropic work. For celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Leonardo DiCaprio, fame is an influential tool that can actually shape policy. Celebrities, unlike average Joes, get their phone calls returned. Politicians want to be photographed with them. For some stars, that kind of access and face time can and should be exploited.

Celebrity interest in Africa has become something of a cliché these days, thanks to over-hyped events like Madonna's adoption of a child from Malawi. But that hasn't stopped celebrity activist George Clooney from pressing his case concerning the crisis in the Darfur region of Sudan. In April, he headlined a "Save Darfur" rally in Washington, D.C., shortly after he returned from a trip there, in which he had secretly recorded footage that could be used to document genocide. His celebrity clout earned him a spot alongside Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel before the United Nations Security Council in September, to appeal for intervention in the troubled region.

Some celebrities keep their charity work low key. Mariah Carey, for example, is a longtime supporter of the Fresh Air Fund and founded Camp Mariah in 1994, which underwrites summer camp for 300 boys and girls. But Carey doesn't bring it up unless asked. Last year, rapper 50 Cent teamed up with beverage maker Glaceau (in which he owns a stake) to promote the issue of childhood obesity. But odds are good you won't hear about that in any of his shoot-'em-up lyrics.

Mariah-Oh-Meter: Rate Her Look
Posted by Lynn on Wednesday, 22-Nov-2006, 8:43PM EST
As other divas change their looks -- Britney, Whitney, Courtney -- you can always count on Mariah for her signature second-skin dresses and larger-than-life hairdos. At the Make-A-Wish Foundation gala in Beverly Hills this weekend, Mariah Carey turned up to be honored in a low-cut maroon micro-mini and sky-high metallic stilletos. On a scale of One being Congresswoman conservative, and Ten being ready for her video vixen close-up, People gives this look a 7.

Tell People: On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate Mariah's oh-factor in this look?

Eminem Disses Mariah (Again)

Related Article: Why it already sounds a lot like Christmas on the air

It's not Thanksgiving yet, but Christmas already has arrived on the Bay Area airwaves.

Each year more stations are going "All Christmas," launching earlier and earlier, despite the claims of some conservative talk radio show hosts of a "war on Christmas."

KOIT's program director Bill Conway said he was skeptical four years ago when his station started playing the music non-stop weeks before the holiday, but his skepticism was proved wrong when the ratings in December soared. Last year, he started even earlier, on Veteran's Day.

And this year, stations in Kansas City and Salt Lake City started Nov. 1. "I don't understand why it works, but it does," says Conway, whose station is almost always in the market's top three for ratings. "A lot of it is that the songs are positive, upbeat, have a good tempo and are familiar."

Conway said the station started later this year, because its research found that people weren't ready to listen to the music here until right before Thanksgiving. Research also showed that new listeners who found the station in December because of the Christmas music stayed with it in January, when it returned to "soft rock, less talk" playing the likes of Celine Dion and Mariah Carey.

Ms. Carey, by the way, has the last new Christmas song to make it onto the station's playlist. Her 1994 "All I Want for Christmas is You" took a few years to break through, and is now considered a standard, Conway says.

Conway has been a programmer for 35 years. He resisted going All Christmas for several years and now has become something of an expert on it.

"There are people who want to have me drawn and quartered for playing a Christmas song before Thanksgiving, and others who are ready to hear them after Halloween," he says.

Mariah Carey Snubbed at Another Awards Show
Posted by Lynn on Wednesday, 22-Nov-2006, 1:34AM EST
Pop diva Mariah Carey, whose commercial success has not translated into awards show acclaim, was snubbed at the American Music Awards on Tuesday, despite scoring three nominations.

The big winners this year were the Los Angeles funk band Black Eyed Peas, who won all three categories in which they were nominated. Veteran funk-rock combo the Red Hot Chili Peppers won two awards. Canadian rock band Nickelback, another three-time nominee, won a single award.

Carey, 36, who was nominated for four awards last year and won one, was a no-show. She went zero for six in 1997.

The event at the Shrine Auditorium was hosted by comedian Jimmy Kimmel. Nominees are drawn from top acts determined by retail sales and radio airplay, while winners are voted on by a random poll of about 20,000 record-buyers.


Mariah lost in the following 3 categories she was nominated for:
  • Favorite Female Artist, Pop/Rock (Winner: Kelly Clarkson)
  • Favorite Female Artist, Soul/Rhythm & Blues (Winner: Mary J. Blige)
  • Favorite Album, Soul/Rhythm & Blues (Winner: Mary J. Blige)

Talking about "Tennessee" with "Gay Life", he said:
"Because I'm such an underdog in the system, I identify with and understand other underdogs. Halle was an underdog, Cuba was an underdog and Mariah, the lead in my new film Tennessee, is an underdog. We underdogs stick together because we have a connection. It's invigorating and inspiring taking a chance on people."

Barco for Mariah
Posted by Adi on Tuesday, 21-Nov-2006, 8:18PM EST
How do you solve a problem like Mariah?

Hollywood-based XL Video has selected Barco LED, projection and image processing equipment as the centerpiece of Mariah Carey's current "The Adventures of Mimi" tour. Barco gear includes four movable LED screens composed of ILITE 10 tiles, and thousands of Barco MIPIX modules for the stage's two architectural pieces (a huge "M" that frames the stage, plus a flying "O" ring that masks the smallest ILITE screen).

To complete the Barco equipment array, twin ENCORE Video Processors provide 12 layers of HD video that can be routed to any LED wall or projection screen. However, in this unique concert configuration, the standard ENCORE Controller is replaced by a custom interface designed by Portland-based Control Freak Systems.

Using DMX protocol, ENCORE's image processing tools and all individual video layers can be assigned to any dimmer on the GrandMA console. With the same ease as fading up a light, the LD can size, position, color correct and fade any layer, and perform completely synchronous video-plus-lighting moves.

Video Download: Mariah at Wish Night Awards on E! News
Posted by Lynn on Tuesday, 21-Nov-2006, 5:00PM EST
On E! News last night, red carpet footage of Mariah from Friday's Wish Night Awards at The Beverly Hills Hotel in Hollywood was shown. E! asked her about her involvement with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and about the outfit and jewelry she was wearing. (Thanks to Brian for the heads-up!)

Back in Hollywood, Mariah Carey was doing a little something for the kids. The songbird was honored with the "Wish Icon Award" at the Make-A-Wish Foundation's annual gala.

Mariah: The first time I ever spoke to a Make-A-Wish child, it was really difficult because they were literally dying, and you know, they're crying, their families are crying, you're crying and you're like, 'How do I get through this?' It is important to be strong for those people because they're looking to you to be their strength.

But the true star of the night was Mariah's dress which highlighted those famous legs.

Mariah: I am wearing an Opus dress by Nile and jewelry by Van Cleef & Arpels that I just got.

Mariah has always loved the holidays, and the 1994 release of Merry Christmas seemed like a natural creation for Mariah. Little did she (or anyone, for that matter) know how much of a classic the album and her original holiday tune "All I Want For Christmas Is You" would become.

From Contact Music: Pop superstar Mariah Carey has collected the Make-A-Wish Foundation's Wish Icon Award for making the dreams of many sick and deprived children come true. The "Say Somethin'" hitmaker received the organization's greatest honor in recognition of her commitment and generous donations to their cause.

Carey picked up the award at the seventh annual Make-A-Wish Foundation ceremony held at The Beverly Hills Hotel in Hollywood on Friday, November 17th. A charity spokesman said, "In addition to her award-winning career as a performer and songwriter, Carey has also been a committed volunteer for the Make-A-Wish foundation. She has personally granted dozens of wishes for children across the country. Many children have taken Carey's place at music awards shows, thanks to her generosity."

Carey also donates to help grant performing arts/music wishes and she has donated in six figures to fund more than 20 wishes. "The pop legend was also willing to take the stage for the foundation's 25th anniversary."

Mariah Fan Experience: "I Got A Hug!"
Posted by Lynn on Sunday, 19-Nov-2006, 1:46AM EST
Honey B. Fly member Erika (Sophia04) was one of the lucky fans who met Mariah at the Wish Night 2006 gala in The Beverly Hills Hotel last night. Waiting for hours was definitely worth it - she got an autograph... and a hug! Here's her story.

"We waited in the lobby for a while when suddenly we see her bodyguard. Edith (Erika's friend) asked him if she was in the hotel, he said no, but that she would be arriving shortly. We waited for another while. All of a sudden we see her walk in... she looked so beautiful! She said hi to all of the lambs that were there, shook hands with some lambs which included myself and Adri. She left then she came out to use the restroom. Edith told one of her bodyguards to tell her that she looked beautiful and he said, 'Why don't you tell her yourself after the show.' We freaked out! We knew for sure today was the day we would meet her.

We waited till a little after 10 o'clock. Finally she came out... she looked more beautiful than when we first saw her come in! She gave us all autographs (I got a poster and my jacket) and hugs. No pictures were allowed but I did manage to take one of her anyway (got in trouble, almost got my camera taken away). I told her she was gorgeous and she said, 'Thank you, I like your hair.' Overall, it was the BEST experience ever! I couldn't imagine sharing that whole experience with any one else other than my girls Adri, Edith and Angie... luv you girls!"

Mariah on "Who's Who in Ireland" List
Posted by Lynn on Wednesday, 15-Nov-2006, 8:01PM EST
Who's Who in Ireland has become the definitive list of the country’s most influential people and was last updated in 1999.

But there is no doubt the latest version of the book throws up a few unusual choices for inclusion.

Oscar winner Robert De Niro gets a mention because he is a second generation Irish-American. And other surprise additions in the Irish abroad section are socialite Paris Hilton, actor George Clooney and singer Mariah Carey.

Clooney is described as third generation Irish with ancestors in Sligo, while Carey, whose mother was an Irish opera singer is second-generation Irish. Socialite Hilton is fourth-generation Irish American because her paternal grandmother had Irish relations.

Video: VH1's Insane Celebrity Entourages Featuring Mariah
Posted by Lynn on Tuesday, 14-Nov-2006, 2:28AM EST
The Fabulous Life Presents "Insane Celebrity Entourages" premiered last night on VH1. One of the featured celebrities was Mariah Carey.

"Mariah Carey is a legend in the business and she's also a legend in having a huge entourage. She looks like the President when she's in town.

And Mariah's reported 30-person posse makes [George] W's downright puny. She's got her manager, her personal masseuse, a trainer, a choreographer, and a reported kitten wrangler - to round up kitties to keep Mariah company backstage. Meow.

Mariah Carey rolls in with the 30 people, one of them is actually a TV Consultant to make sure that she is always photographed from the right angle. And she also has a gal that's always nearby with some bottles of water in a fancy Louis Vuitton case.

I would like to have seen the ad on Craigslist for that job: searching for Mariah Carey's water carrier, must supply in a Louis Vuitton bag, references requested."

  • For all the Mariah chart fans, Michael just posted the latest certification requirements for all the countries in the world with national recording associations on his Beating The Charts column.

  • Mariah has always loved the holidays, and the 1994 release of Merry Christmas seemed like a natural creation for Mariah. Little did she (or anyone, for that matter) know how much of a classic that album and her original holiday tune "All I Want For Christmas Is You" would become. Check back before Thanksgiving as Jason gives us a more detailed look at this release in his column, Looking In.

  • InTouch Weekly, Nov. 20th issue, "Is It True?" page 73: Did Mariah's diva requests cause a show to be canceled? No. When the plug was pulled on Mariah Carey's concert in Hong Kong, promoters claimed that poor ticket sales and the diva's last-minute demands for special spring water, lighting, new furniture and armed escorts were to blame, according to the New York Daily News. But Mariah's manager, Benny Medina, says ticket sales were fine - it was the concert promoter who failed to pay the money he owed the singer, forcing Mariah to cancel the show. "He's resorting to lies and attacks on Mariah when he can't pay the bills," he says. ["Mariah is very passionate about her fans in Southeast Asia," says her manager. "No special treatment was needed."]

  • Gospel singer and Mariah's friend, Kelly Price has released a new album entitled, "This Is Who I Am," six years after her debut with "Soul of a Woman." In an interview with SOHH Soulful, Kelly lent this piece of insight about being successful with a comeback: "I hope that Mariah doesn't look at the term 'comeback' as an insult. She will always be able to comeback because she is a true talent. She sings, writes, arranges. Even if she does something trendy that people feel might not be popular in years to come, she still has the ability to sing a song that will. Many of the artists that are here today and gone tomorrow don't have roots. They are of the moment. Those that do comeback and are successful have talent that surpasses a time period. I don't mind being called a comeback."

    Kelly's new album is available for purchase at Musichristian.com. You can listen to the first single, "Healing" on her MySpace music page. To the right is a photo of Mariah and Kelly at "Christmas at BET" in 1994. Click for an enlarged view.

A Warm November Night
Posted by Lynn on Friday, 10-Nov-2006, 4:44PM EST
As we all know, Mariah will be performing tonight at the 4th Annual Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation Gala in Chelsea Piers, New York. The host is, of course, the manager of the New York Yankees baseball team. More importantly, Derek Jeter is their prized shortstop and the past boyfriend of Mariah. Derek has never missed this charity event since its inception in 2003 so it is inevitable that the past lovers will cross paths.

Mariah: "Diva" Doesn't Apply To Me
Posted by Lynn on Friday, 10-Nov-2006, 7:35AM EST
Mariah Carey has hit out at the bad press surrounding her cancelled Hong Kong concert and says she is not to blame.

The megastar songstress claims it was because she was owed money, not because she was making irrational demands, that the gig was called off.

She told Neil Sean of Sky News: "You know, calling me a diva is an easy option just because I am a singer and an actress. But the word diva really cannot be applied to me."


Meanwhile, AFP fills in more details of Mariah Carey suing concert promoter for axed Hong Kong show

Mariah Carey's production company has filed a one million dollar lawsuit against an Asia-based concert promoter for unpaid fees and reimbursements for expenses relating to a cancelled Hong Kong show.

The suit alleges that the US pop diva was "greatly looking forward" to performing in the territory, but was forced to cancel the show when promoter ONE Group Investments Private Limited "breached its contractual obligations".

"Regretfully, Ms Carey's production company has been forced to bring legal action to vindicate its rights," the company's Los Angeles-based lawyers Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher said in a statement.

"This is an open-and-shut case for Mariah's company and we are confident that the company will prevail," said the singer's attorney, Orin Snyder.

ONE Group's chief executive Adrian Hobbs hit back, saying:

"We received no reply to get our money back and we would love for the matter to go to court and the facts (to) come out and clearly she had savings by not coming.

"We would not presume to tell the court an outcome. This is a matter for the court, not arrogant assumptions... ONE Group is confident that we would prevail and they would be ordered to return money paid," Hobbs added, without saying whether he had taken any legal action.

Carey's concert was cancelled two days before it was due to take place on October 28 after her management company, Handprint Entertainment, and ONE Group pulled the plug, with each blaming the other for mishandling the event.

The promoter blamed poor ticket sales, claiming that just 4,000 of at least 10,000 had been sold, and also Handprint's last-minute "wholly unreasonable" demands.

Handprint at the time blamed One Group for failing to pay outstanding production and artists' fees.

While neither company has disclosed any financial details of the contract, a source close to the matter said the singer had been paid 400,000 dollars in advance and agreed expense payment at 100,000 dollars.

Carey had been booked to play on a harbourside site that hosts occasional outdoor events. Production crews had already begun building the stage when the announcement came.

The Misadventure of Mimi's Fur Coat
Posted by Lynn on Friday, 10-Nov-2006, 1:13AM EST
Here are further details about the Mariah fur coat incident posted on PETA's official blog, The PETA Files:

"If you have ever had the experience of losing a $7,500 coat that Mariah Carey gave you, you will sympathize with how difficult this past week has been for us. As with so many things these days, the whole chain of events was started off by a wealthy Russian oligarch. A big fan of Mariah's work, he sent her a pair of ludicrously expensive fur coats in a misguided attempt to impress her. Mariah, understandably peeved about receiving dead animals in the mail from some sketchy Russian tycoon, immediately donated the coats to us.

So we did what any sensible person would do and shipped them off to, respectively, Los Angeles and Mongolia. The Los Angeles coat got there OK, and graffiti artist Marcus Suarez is going to be painting anti-fur slogans on the back of that coat so we can use it in protests. But the other coat—which was going to be given to homeless refugees along with hundreds of other cast-off furs—was lost by the brilliant folks over at UPS somewhere between here and Mongolia. Anyway, the happy ending is that UPS is giving us $7,500 for the coat, so Mariah's generosity won't be wasted, and we've got some devious-ass plans for ways to use the money to remind people (both Russian plutocrats and the general public) that fur is dead. So, yeah. Anyway, I thought that was pretty interesting."

Mariah Sues Hong Kong Promoter
Posted by Lynn on Thursday, 09-Nov-2006, 10:06PM EST
Mariah Carey's production company has filed suit against Asia-based concert promoters, ONE Group Investments Private Limited. The diva wants $1 million to reimburse her for expenses related to prepping a cancelled Hong Kong performance.

The suit alleges that Mimi was looking forward to 'shaking it off' in Hong Kong, but was forced to cancel the show when the promoter "breached its contractual obligations." ONE Group claims the diva had poor advance sales and "last-minute demands which we find wholly unreasonable and not with the best interests of Hong Kong, us and also the fans."

Mariah's attorney says "This is an open-and-shut case for Mariah's company and we are confident that the company will prevail."

Lost in Transit
Posted by Lynn on Thursday, 09-Nov-2006, 10:16AM EST
Mariah Carey's bizarre attempt to keep a Mongolian yak herder warm this winter has failed.

A Russian oligarch sent Carey two floor-length mink coats after she performed at his birthday earlier this year, but Carey, who doesn't wear fur, donated the coats to PETA. One was kept for protest purposes, but the second coat - sent to Mongolia - was lost by UPS en route.

A rep for PETA told Page Six the shipping company will pay $7,500 for the lost coat, which "will buy a lot of paint!" - presumably to be thrown on American women wearing fur.

Meanwhile, Jenny Woods, PETA Media Manager has replied to an email sent in by Mariah fan and PETA member, Jeremy regarding the "mink" teddy bears that will be handed out to the nominees, Mariah being one, at the American Music Awards. She wrote, "We are writing to the AMA organizers about this. We're also discussing which musicians will be best to contact to ask that they not accept the bears."

"Mariah Carey holds a moral belief about the sanctity of life, and will most likely be insulted by the gift, as will many of the viewers and other faux-fur stars," Jeremy reported. You can read the full context of Jeremy's report at Eureka Hats.

Charged Moment
Posted by Lynn on Monday, 06-Nov-2006, 9:32AM EST
There could be an awkward moment Friday, November 10 at the Chelsea Piers when former flames Mariah Carey and Derek Jeter come face to face. Carey is the entertainment at the fourth annual Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation gala. Jeter, who attends his manager's charity event every year, dated Carey briefly in 1998 until he broke it off.

Among those watching the potential fireworks will be emcee Bob Costas, lawyer Herb Nass, author of "Wills of the Rich & Famous," Ari Fleischer, White House press secretary under Bill Clinton, and Dan Scavino, Donald Trump's new golf czar.

Director Daniels Is Out To Prove Mariah Can Act
Posted by Lynn on Monday, 06-Nov-2006, 9:24AM EST
Lee Daniels is gearing up to begin production on "Tennessee," which stars Mariah Carey. He says Carey, widely dissed for her work in "Glitter," is "a survivor" who is going to prove her critics wrong.

"The studios don't believe in her," says Daniels, who is producing the film. "They think I'm crazy for hiring her, but people said the same thing when I hired Halle Berry." Berry won an Academy Award for her role in "Monster's Ball," the first film Daniels produced.

Scan #1:
Mariah Sizzles At Any Size

Life & Style, November 13, 2006

Mariah Carey, 26, dropped several sizes last spring while gearing up for her Adventures of Mimi tour. But now the 5-foot-9 star has filled back out, proving she can rock any weight.

"Mariah surrounds herself with people who like her just the way she is," says an industry insider of the diva, who no longer sweats through daily gym sessions or eats low-carb meals.

Fave food splurges
"Mariah doesn't eat a lot, but she eats constantly," says the insider. Mimi especially loves Kobe and french fries dipped in mayo.

On her curvier body
"I've got a butt, and I want to keep it," says Mariah. "Yeah, it grows and shrinks and it grows. That's what it does."

Scan #2:
Diva-licious?

Us Weekly, November 13, 2006

Promoters in Hong Kong claimed they canceled an October 28 concert with Mariah Carey, 36, because of her unrealistic demands and bad ticket sales. Carey's manager said she pulled out because she wasn't properly paid.

A Fan's Only Wish Is To Walk Again
Posted by Lynn on Saturday, 04-Nov-2006, 9:42PM EST
Diana Stevenson is an avid Mariah fan, 22 with Cerebral Palsy. Diana's wish is to be able to walk again. She's in dire need of an easy stand Evolv Glider, an elliptical machine for people like her who cannot walk without a walker. She's been selling her Mariah related stuff to pay for this but not enough to cover the cost. She writes:
"It's $4,295, my insurance doesn't cover it, and I have only managed to save a total of $310. Living with not even having the freedom to move around when you need or want to has been crushing me for quite some time. This piece of equipment and the time that I spend in therapy are my light at the end of the tunnel."
She is asking a meager $1 as donation. If you'd like to help her, please paypal your donation to divineimperfection@comcast.net.

  • PETA will hand out dozens of fur coats to some of Minneapolis' neediest people on Thursday, November 2nd at the Marie Sandvik Center, a charitable organization that provides for the inner-city poor. How did PETA get into the fur "business"? One hundred percent of the coats given away at PETA's nationwide "fur kitchen" events were donated by people who are sickened by what happens to animals killed for fur. PETA's fur-coat donors include Mariah Carey, Kimberley Hefner, and Mary Tyler Moore.

  • Head over to our Media section to download 'unedited' video files from Mariah's Madison Square Garden concert in 1995. These are the ones she originally sang before they were edited for the DVD. Jeremiah was nice enough to upload the files for us. Thanks!

  • From E! Online: Party Paychecks of the Stars: Showing up is far more than half the battle for celebrities who get paid to party, Us reports. Okay, some stars actually do a little work, like Mariah Carey and Usher, who get $1 million to perform at private functions. If you're looking for an A-list bargain, Nicole Kidman costs merely half as much but needs a private jet ride thrown in to sweeten the deal.

  • Mariah is mentioned in the liner notes of JoJo's new CD, "The High Road" where she thanks the artists that have inspired her. Thanks to My-Jojo.net for the scan.

  • Nelly Furtado mentioned Mariah again. On yesterday's Tyra Banks show, she said that way back when she was a little kid she used to lock the door listening to Mariah then write her songs. She further said that if she was to rename herself, she wants the name "Maria." You can find Nelly's previous quotes in our Celebrity Quotes.

  • Vivian's "Mimi Adventures" fanbook is in the works and she is looking for everything including fan art, pictures of fans with Mariah, fan stories, along with letters, poems, etc. If you want to contribute, send your entries to vivian_jackson2002@yahoo.com.

Mariah is scheduled to perform at The Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundation Gala honoring the 1996 World Champion New York Yankees on Friday, November 10th at Chelsea Piers, Pier 60, New York City, New York. Sportscaster Bob Costas will host the event.

The 4th Annual Safe At Home Foundation Gala is for the benefit of Margaret's Place (named after Joe Torre's mom), a comprehensive program which provides students with a safe room in school where they can meet with a professional counselor trained in domestic violence intervention and preparation.

Joe Torre & the 1996 New York Yankees
In 1996, just his first year as manager with the New York Yankees club, Joe Torre led the team to a 92-70 finish and after a tumultuous post-season, his team vanquished the Atlanta Braves for the Yankees' first championship since 1978.

Eminem Trashes Mariah During Radio Interview
Posted by Lynn on Thursday, 02-Nov-2006, 1:48PM EST
When he wasn't making jokes about his drug use or complaining about listeners downloading music instead of buying it, Eminem opened up about his relationship with Mariah Carey last week during an interview on his Sirius Satellite Radio station, Shade 45.

"Yes, me and Mariah did have a relationship for about a good six, seven months," said Em. "(But) it didn't work. I wasn't really into what she was into; our personalities collided. She's a diva, and I'm a little more regular, I guess." Em went on to blast Mariah for saying they never had a relationship, calling her words that start with the letters "b" and "c." "I can never deny her talent, but the fact that she denied we ever had something, that's bad."
