September News


9/30/99 Not much intersting Mariah news today after an exciting day yesterday :( There will be a new Pic of the Week and new quote however on the webpage, so check that out!

ButtterfIi and some other people told me that they mentioned MC on the new show on the WB last night called, "Popular." The one girl who's unpopular says about the popular people "Look at them, they're like a bad Mariah Carey power ballad come to life." Is there a bad Mariah Carey ballad? I don't think so!!

Shiloh told me that on yesterdays Biorythm featuring Missy, they mentioned MC on the song, "Babydoll."

Tomas of Sweetheart Mariah told me that Heartbreaker is #6 on the Club Charts!! :)

If you want to help out Mariah on another poll...check out the Vibe poll Whitney was VERY close to MC yesterday! Thanks to Armando for this info.

The next article is from the Los Angeles Times.
Arts and entertainment reports from The Times - Pop/Rock Grammys All Around: The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences is releasing "The Ultimate Grammy Box," a four-CD boxed set featuring more than 70 songs that have either won Grammys (from the awards' inception in 1958 to the present) or been voted into the Recording Academy's Hall of Fame. Featured artists include Elvis Presley, Ella Fitzgerald, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Marvin Gaye, John Lennon and Bonnie Raitt. The release, on Sony's Columbia/Legacy label, is due in stores on Nov. 16.

9/29/99 All I can say is that all our hard work, dedication and love for Mariah has paid off because Heartbreaker is #1!!!! Yup you heard me right..Mariah now officially has 14 number hits. Does this mean she debuets at #1 though holding 4 of the 7 songs that ever have done so?? Here is the article from www.mcarey.com...
MARIAH CAREY HITS #1 WITH HER HISTORY-MAKING "HEARTBREAKER"
Columbia recording artist Mariah Carey, the biggest-selling female artist of the 1990's, is making music history again today as "Heartbreaker," the first single from her forthcoming Rainbow album, becomes her 14th #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100, a feat rivaled only by the Beatles (20) and Elvis Presley (18). With "Heartbreaker" entering the top slot of the charts, Mariah is spending her 59th week at #1, tying only the Beatles for the most weeks at #1 during both the rock era (1955-present) and the 41-year history of the Hot 100. "Heartbreaker" has also hit #1 today on the Billboard R&B chart, becoming the 6th Mariah Carey single to do so. Mariah Carey has had more #1 singles than any female artist, surpassing both the Supremes (12) and Madonna (11), and more #1's than any active recording artist. With more than 271,000 "Heartbreaker" singles sold, Mariah has also achieved the biggest first-week sales of her career and her biggest one-week singles sales ever. In fact, Mariah Carey is the only artist to have had a #1 single for every year of the 1990's. The last decade to have an artist hit #1 every single year was the 1920's when Paul Whiteman & his Orchestra hit the top slot each year. (By the end of the 1920's, Whiteman had become a Columbia Records artist.) With the exception of Merry Christmas (from which there was no single release) and #1's (a collection of her first 13 chart-toppers), Mariah has hit #1 with the debut single from every one of her albums. With the exception of her cover version of the Jackson 5's "I'll Be There," Mariah has cowritten all of her #1's, including "Heartbreaker." With the exceptions of "I Don't Wanna Cry," "Someday," "Love Takes Time," and "Vision Of Love," Mariah has co-produced all of her chart-topping singles. Mariah Carey has sold more than 115 million records worldwide and earned an astounding 84 RIAA gold, platinum, and multi-platinum certifications for her singles, albums, and videos. As the best-selling female artist of the 1990's, she has provided an ongoing soundtrack to the decade and continues to give voice to the emotions of our age.

Well that certainly made my day, but another thing that made my day today was when Alex called me last night at 11 pm and told me that Mariah will be on Philly's Q102 this morning. I got the whole interview on tape, which only lasted for about 10 minutes at 8:12 am. Here are the main points she talked about...

  • First came talk about the Heartbreaker set about how the Russian girl stormed off the set. Originally they had a different girl but the girl was MC's shape, so they picked this Russian girl who was just suppose to be in the audience and she got paid $700 instead of $100. However she got upset over the laughing, as we all know and left the set. We did NOT know that this girl was a SNOB to Mariah when she went back to say sorry. When Mariah tried to explain to her how it was all in fun the girl said VERY SNOTTY TO MC..."I Know!!" So Mariah said "Okay?!?" and left the trailor. She said they still paid her however...I wouldn't of though..LOL
  • Mariah talked about how she was sick in NYC again cause of all the hard work she has been doing. The last interview in 1997, which I also have on tape, she was sick in Italy I beleive. Anyhow she went on to say that she WILL NOT be touring for this album due to All That Glitters. However she said she might tour afterwards which probably won't happen..but let's hope...
  • When asked if she is in love she replys by saying she thinks so :) Hee hee...so cool!!
  • "Bliss" is the song deditcated to the high notes :)
  • She talked about collaborations and the video with 98º and that is basically all I can remember. It was only a 10 minute interview and Mariah did NOT sound good at all. She sounded really sick :( Poor Mariah!!

    Mariah5955 told me that Mariah was #1 on yesterdays Jams Countdown. Cool Beans :) Anyhow know what she was today?

    Monica told me that she heard on Hot 97 that Mariah is in the guiness book of world records for hitting those high notes! Is this true?

    Yesterday Mariah was on WBLS and here is what Mariah Carey Gateway Newsletter told me about it...
    Mariah was on the New York "HipHop and R&B" hit station 107.5FM WBLS this morning around 7:25AM. They pretty much talked about her upcoming album, and Doug Banks (one of the DJs) was hitting on her...how unusual! She stated that this album was going to be probably one of her most favortie albums of all, and that she loves the responce that she is getting from "Heartbreaker".

    ADayDream7 and Armando both told me that Mariah is NOW leading on the Access Hollywood poll. Thanks so much for voting for her guys and here are the current polls that Armando sent me which FOR SURE changed by now...
    Mariah Carey 26.2%
    Sheryl Crow 5.1%
    Celine Dion 17.8%
    Melissa Etheridge 2.6%
    Lauryn Hill 9.8%
    k.d. lang 1.4%
    Alanis Morisette 6.2%
    Britney Spears 11.5%
    Selena 5.6%
    Shania Twain 13.8%

    Nini sent me next article from VG magazine, a Noregian Magazine I believe...
    New album and new boyfriend
    NEW YORK (VG) Mariah Carey (29) has found new love and happiness. Now there's peace in my mind and I'm more creative than ever, Mariah tells VG in this exclusive interview. This week she launches her new album "Rainbow" and after that the biggest selling female artist of the 90's will begin work on her first big movie project, "All That Glitters". The suite in old and honorable Peninsula Hotel on Manhattan is so large that a newcomer can get lost, but we are led by locals to the bedroom where Carey greets us, wearing blue jeans and a black T-shirt. "VG, biggest in the land", Mariah says with a smile, after having heard assistant Jim's presentation. She makes herself comfortable in a chair and VG is seated by the bed. She remembers very well her first visit to Norway, when she performed at Smuget in Oslo in 1990. "I remember it was a little club, and I remember it very well because it was the first time I travelled outside the US. I was so nervous. I remember it was a fantastic audience."
    Grown up
    Mariah has grown up. The nervousity is gone. She has become very proffesional and talks with a lot of confidence and security. Also about the hard times she's been through: In 1997 she divorced Sony-boss, Tommy Mottola and established herself as single with a 70-million appartement in trendy TriBeCa in New York. Now her time as single is over, and the appartement isn't used very often because of all the travelling. "Now I'm in a relationship that makes me very happy. I have peace in my mind and someone who understands me much better than anyone ever has". Who the new man in her life is, she doesn't want to say. "The less I say about that, the better." Mariah says. American media have all summer told of an alleged relationship with the singer, Luis Miguel, which she doesn't want to comment on. On the album "Rainbow" Mariah Carey tries to tell a story, which partly reflects her own life these last years. "Some of the songs are very personal, others I made mostly for the fun of it. It starts with "Heartbreaker" and ends with "Thank God I Found You". It starts with me feeling down, and ends with me being happy." The single "Heartbreaker" is already topping the charts, and Mariah is very happy about the video, where she amongst other things demonstrates "near/close fight technique's" in a women's room. "Thank God I Found You" is a typical Mariah Carey-ballad. "Like with 'Hero', this was a song that just came to me. It's a song that comes from the heart." Violations "I actually haven't got privacy anywhere", Mariah says. The worst violations of her privacy she finds on the Internet. "For me the internet is not a good thing, 'cause there are people out there who just make up stories about me. They can make up anything, and people will believe it." "But I'm not going to complain. I'm allowed to do exactly what I want to. I can live off of my creativity and I've got the life I've always dreamt of." She writes lyrics, music, sings and co-produces about everything that is released, which is rare amongst stars on her level. Now she's also very busy trying out as an actress, and the project "All That Glitters" is mostly her's. She writes the music, participates in writing the script and plays the principal role as a young girl in the 80's who plays in a girlgroup and gets discovered - talented as she is. Jim knocks on the door, pops his head in, and announces that VG's little half hour is over. Carey has a cold, and screams for something against the cough. But she also asks if I'd like to see the "Heartbreaker" video. We watch the humouristic little film in the corner of the livingroom, where her manager thrones behind a huge desk and other people of Carey's staff run around, doing their things. Mariah Carey goes on tour next fall, and will probably come to Oslo as well. But first she's going to make film, 'cause making musicvideos isn't enough anymore.

    You lucky French people :) Hee hee..I can't wait to see Mariah perform Heartbreaker. I think it would be so cool and plus I wonder if she will do all the high notes at the end???

    I posted on the site yesterday and in InfoMC about the cover of Rainbow!! Some of you really would be upset if that was the cover and some of you liked it. Here are YOUR comments...
    BACKINTIME:
    I HOPE THATS NOT THE COVER EITHER..IT RESEMBLES BUTTERFLY'S COVER TOO MUCH AND THE HEARTBREAKER COVER TOO...AND THE I STILL BELIEVE...LOL
    Jenn:
    ok not to be rude but it looks like someone took taht one pic and like is making fun of her or something. someone totally drew that and i dont think mariah would do that. she knows that that would be gay and it would be going too far. it looks like a gay pride shirt anyways. i bet it will be a REAL picture with like something revealin and a rainbow somewhere god i hope this isnt it its sorta gross
    Lissa:
    No its not the cover, because the DJ in MN picked the cover, it was a cover of her with a sucker on a bed. That is neither with a sucker nor a bed. Not to mention its not a good pic for the main pic. BYE!
    Kate:
    i really hope that does not end up being the cover... she wears her underwear outside too much.. she needs to put some pants on! or a nice dress! man..
    Bambi:
    I think your right maybe if they took the shot from the waist up or as an insaide pic but i think she looks so cute in the rainbow tank!!!
    Agent MC:
    i really don't think they should use the picture of M.C in her undies as the cover. first of all, i hate it when people say this about her but, right now a lot of people are criticizing her new "sexy image" if you know what i mean. (skank) anyway if they use this picture then it will just further this implication and people will be callin'' her a skank even more. now don't get me wrong i totally defend M.C whenever some one says something bad about her and i guess it doesn't really matter what the stupid people say, but i just think it could save her and myself a lot of trouble and time if she chose a not so reveling picture. although i have to admit she's looks great and she's been really workin' those abs. you go girl!
    WildCatHG (me):
    Yeah I agree with some of them..it is a little too much for an album cover. Someone didn't think it was her actually but I think it is. It looks like the same video shoot as the Interview pic, it just has some computer graphics to change the shirt!! Thanks for everyone's comments and more news to come later in the day hopefully...

    9/27/99 The Bachelor Official website has now been updated. It includes a nice new MC pics for your viewing pleasure and here is what it says about Mariah...
    MARIAH CAREY (Ilana)
    exploded on the global music scene in the early nineties. Singer, songwriter, producer, video director, and the best-selling female recording artist of this decade, Carey makes her motion picture debut in The Bachelor. Her albums include the most recently released "#1’s," a compilation of her hit songs as well as a few new original tracks, "Daydream," which won four World Music Awards and Two Billboard Awards, "Butterfly," "Merry Christmas," "Music Box" (MTV unplugged EP), "Emotions," and her debut album "Mariah Carey," which garnered four consecutive number one singles, earned two Grammy Awards, and sold over twelve million copies worldwide. A native New Yorker, Carey is the spokesperson for the Fresh Air Fund, an organization dedicated to providing inner-city children with the opportunity to spend summers in the country, camping and enjoying a wide variety of activities and learning opportunities.

    Armando told me that the "#1's Home Video" is set to be released on November 1, 1999.

    My good friend Anja told me that Mariah will be featured in a German magazine called MAX hitting stands this Thursday. Can't you get that in the US too? Sounds familiar!

    Aaron sent more some more news from the Philippines and here it is :)
    Here are some good news in Asia and the Philippines. Mariah Carey debuted in the Asia Hitlist yesterday at number 20. Though it's kinda low, expect that her song will leap to the top spot soon. Anyhow, in the local radio station here in the Philippines, after four weeks of struggling to be in the top, Mariah Carey's Heartbreaker at last made it. She debuted five weeks ago at the high number 14 (out of 30 songs). She climbed to 11 - 4 - 3 - 1. As what the DJ said, it's a very fast climb.
    That is SO COOL!!

    TOMAS2099 send me this next article from the Sony Australia Site
    Colour Your World Mariah...with her brand new studio album "Rainbow".
    Mariah Carey is the biggest selling female artist of the decade. Her career has been an extraordinary succession of #1s and record breaking firsts in the music industry. Mariah has had more #1 albums than any female artist in the '90s. She was the first female artist to see two of her albums ("Music Box" and "Daydream") reach sales of 10 million in the US! In fact, every album Mariah has released has sold at least double Platinum in the US.
    Numerous Grammys, Soul Train Awards, American Music Awards, Billboard Awards and World Music Awards confirm that Mariah is a favourite with critics and music buyers alike. The list of her hit singles goes on and on. From "Vision Of Love" and "Emotions" to "Hero", "One Sweet Day" (her massive selling duet with Boyz II Men) and "Fantasy" (Mariah's most successful single in Australia), Mariah has had 10 Top 10 singles and 21 Top 40 singles in Australia.
    With the release of "Butterfly" in 1997, Mariah took her music in a bold new direction. Mixing contemporary R'n'B and pop with heady lyrics, the album generated the hits "Honey" and "My All", plus, saw Mariah tour Australia for the first time.
    "Heartbreaker" is the premiere single from Mariah's new studio album, "Rainbow" (due in stores November 2). The track has been compared to the style of her #1 hit "Fantasy". "Heartbreaker" is an uptempo Pop/R'n'B smash produced by Mariah and DJ Clue. Rapper Jay Z is featured on the single. The single is already racing up the US charts and is expected to be one of her biggest hits yet...Make sure you check out the video - with Mariah trying out some of her best martial arts moves...catch it on Video Hits and Channel V.
    "Rainbow" will feature tracks written for Mariah by Dianne Warren (responsible for Aerosmith's "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" among other #1 singles) and is produced by DJ Clue and David Foster. Mariah also performs a duet with Luis Miguel (her current 'companion'?)
    Look out for a dedicated Mariah TV special before Christmas, including performances of new tracks from "Rainbow" as well as some of her biggest hits.
    ...and get ready to colour your world Mariah with the release of "Rainbow" in stores November 1

    Don't they mean Nov.2nd?? Or is Australia getting it a day early?

    Nini sent me this next article from this Site
    THE DISH ON MARIAH CAREY’S RAINBOW:
    If you’re already looking forward to the November 2 release of Mariah Carey’s Rainbow, than you’ll really, really be looking forward to the release after we fill you in on the star-studded album and its track listing. On Rainbow, Carey covers the Phil Collins hit "Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)" for the 1984 film of the same name that starred Jeff Bridges and Rachel Ward. Guest stars on the album include Joe and 98 Degrees, Jay-Z, Usher, Mystikal and Master P., Da Brat and Missy Elliot. Carey recently previewed a ballad "Mariah’s Theme (They Can’t Take That Away)" which may appear as a bonus track. Here is the track listing for the album:

  • "Heartbreaker" featuring Jay-Z
  • "Thank God I Found You" featuring Joe and 98 Degrees
  • "Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)"
  • "After Tonight"
  • "My Love Goes"
  • "They Can Try"
  • "How Much" featuring Usher
  • "Crybaby"
  • "Rainbow" (Interlude)
  • "It Ain’t My Fault" featuring Mystikal and Master P.
  • "Ex-Girlfriend"
  • "Heartbreaker (Remix) Featuring Da Brat and Missy Elliot
    Mariah says "They Can Try" in "Mariah's Theme" so I don't think this is a very accurate list at all, some of them are true though and they are in no particular order so maybe "They Can Try" is a song??? Also Sony Japan's list and this list are different as in song titles so don't trust this list AT ALL!!

    I added a new "Mariah Poll" on the main page. Vote on it if you like. I really like this poll and I can tell you the one I voted on which is "Mariah's Theme" because it is really SO BEAUTIFUL if you listen to the lyrics and what she is trying to say. FOR SURE, her best one in my opinion!!

    9/25/99 Well do present another rumor to you, Mariah's new song "They Can't Take That Away from Me" is supposedly a video now in Germany. However I do NOT believe this is true and I'll talk to my good friend Anja about this. So I'll get back to you about this!! However I hope Mariah does make a video for this song because it is my NEW favorite song since Hero. It really is so BEAUTIFUL if you listen to the lyrics and the melody is beautiful too. I believe this song will go to #1 if MC releases it..I have a feeling she will though :)

    Speaking of singles, Heartbreaker is selling MAD copies. At Wal-Mart they had 6 singles and they are gone by today, which is Saturday :) Brianne wrote me and told me this...
    just wanted to let you know that HEARTBREAKER single was flying off teh shelf tonite at work. We started with 48 cd singles and are now down to 10 and we had 7 cassesttes left and now none. And we had 9 maxis and now have 6. This was all in 5 hours that we sold almost 50! I kept playing it incessantly and people were dancing and stuff!! I think its gonna do very well!
    SO COOL!! I am so happy..you have no idea!!!

    Froggi1116 and a couple other people told me that you can read a review I also have it right here for you...read on..
    THE BACHELOR: Opens: November 5
    PLAYERS: Chris O'Donnell, Renee Zellwegger, Peter Ustinov, Brooke Shields, Mariah Carey, Stacey Edwards, Sarah Silverman
    PLOT: A young bachelor (O'Donnell) has 24 hours to find a bride and get married so he can collect a $100 million inheritance. But his longtime girlfriend (Zellwegger) gets a little suspicious when he suddenly pops the question.
    PAYOFF: Two of Hollywood's cutest stars try to prove they can carry a movie in this remake of the 1925 silent Buster Keaton film Seven Chances. Look for cameos by Brooke Shields and Mariah Carey as two of O'Donnell's exes who want in on the action.

    Chris told me he heard an interview on the Washington DC's radio station Z104...here are the highlights :) Mariah was interviewed on my radio station in Washington DC this morning, Z104. This is the run down... her and the DJ joked about going on a date. She admited she was in love but refused to say who with. She said she is angry that someone started sending out newsletters that had fake information on her and Lauren's duet. She said she has never even talked to Lauren about a duet and the last time she saw Lauren was at her concert and Mariah didn't even get to go back stage to talk with her because she had to go. She talked about what Joan Rivers said at the Oscars to her, about her weight. Mariah said is was upseting because she admits to putting 6 or 7 pounds on but she doesn't know why everyone is required to be a stick. She said she has never put so much work into one of her albums. She talked about Barbaria Striesands house and how together they had an argeement but the "old" voters didn't like the idea of rappers in or around her house, so they voted aganist her. She said then that her new penthouse apartment has not been finsihed for her and she is living in hotels and all of her cloths and awards and stuff are in storage. they asked her how many awards she had and she couldn't say because they are all away in storage right now. She promoted her new single and they played Heartbreaker right before she came on. At the end, they asked her to play the Cheese Game. Its where all celebs that talk on the morning show have to name as many kinds and cheese in 30 seconds. Singer Vitiman C is in the lead with 12. Mariah didn't want to play but she started to and named american and cheeder and wouldn't play anymore... this made the DJ's kinda mad. She said if she named anymore, she would be hungry. They said their goodbyes and afterward said that she better not turn their cheese game down again. They were snooty about it. I was very happy she was on! It surprised me!! I was merging into traffic out of other traffic and they announced they were going to be talking to her. I almost hit someone i was so excited!! (just kidding)

    Sunny13169 and told me that they saw the movie of Stir of Echos and saw the "Bachelor" tralior during it. So go see this movie JUST to see the trailor..hee hee :)

    My big news buddy, Nini, send me something from "Ask Billboard Online." Thanks Nini...
    Hi Keith, I just heard that Mariah Carey has recorded a duet with 98 Degrees for her new album "Rainbow." I wanted to know if you could verify this. Also, I heard there might be a duet with Usher on the new album. Is this true? Do you know of any other artists she might be singing with on "Rainbow?" When is the set supposed to come out? Is there a track listing available yet? Thank You, Darren Cruz CDMAN2@prodigy.net
    Darren, Mariah Carey and 98 Degrees recently recorded a song, "Thank God I Found You," for the diva's new album, which will be released Nov. 2 by Columbia. The set is Carey's first studio effort since 1997's "Butterfly." The singer is still in the midst of completing the new disc. A final track listing, as well as a list of her album collaborators, is unknown at this point. Carey's last release, "#1's," peaked at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 in December 1998; it is No. 180 for the week ending Sept. 25. The hits collection has sold 2.7 million units, according to SoundScan. I first wrote about Mariah Carey's new album in the Aug. 4 edition of Ask Billboard. You can find that column at www.billboard.com/ask/archive/990804.html

    Kristen wrote me and told me that Japan's "Rainbow" album comes out the 23rd of October?? Is that right? The Japan cd also has 14 songs with the bonus track entitled, "Petal." Hopefully this will be the Foreign cd release :)

    9/24/99 Well a lot of you were having trouble getting the latest Interview magazine with MC in it but now I got the scan for you FINNALY. I sent the pic to Lisa and she scanned it for me :) Click to see bigger and you can also see it in Gallery 10. Here it is, you saw it here first!!

    ADayDream7 told me that Mariah jumped from #23 to #16 on the Billboard charts...I am praying that she makes it all the way to #1 cause she deserves it :)

    Here are TRL's comments for yesterday thanks to Sara..She was #8
    Carson! Please play the video "Heartbreaker" by Mariah Carey because she is great and so is the video. Everytime I hear the song, it stays in my head all day long. Thanks! Nikki, PA
    What's up Carson? I voted for Mariah Carey's "Heartbreaker" because she has got a great voice and I wish I could be in that hot tub with Jay-Z cause he's so hot! April, MN

    MariahLov sent me an interesting article but I don't know if it is true? No other sources have reported on it but anyhow here is what he had to say...
    Ok this is what my aunt sent me, she said it was in one of her music clubs...This is soo cool!!
    9/22/99 Mariah hits big with new single
    Mariah Carey has made a smash with her new hit single, "Heartbreaker." The single hit stores yesterday. Sony has made the single a Limited Edition single. There will only be a certain number of singles sent to stores, and when they are sold out, no more shipments or production of the single will be made. The new single is the second, right behind Elton John's "Candle in the Wind" 1997 edition, fastest selling single in history. The single selling over 2 million copies on the first day, makes Mariah with the best selling single by a female artist on debut day sales. Expect this single to hit #1 very soon. Her album, "Rainbow," hits stores November 2.

    That is kind of cool..better go pick up some extra singles if that is true though :)

    Radio News:
    Lissa:
    Okay I just wanted to inform you that on the radio station KDWB, the one that she taped the video w/ 98* and Joe, anyway every nite at 10:00 we have a 5 song countdown. Mariah debuted at #2!! I was so happy!!
    WildCatHG (me):
    Mariah's Heartbreaker is #18 out of #20 top hits on Q102 site. Wish it was higher but at least it is on the countdown :)

    Armando told me that the tracklisting for "Heartbreaker" is the same in Germany as the Maxi and the Vinyl in the US!!

    Mariahsnumber1 and Lena both told me that MC is in the new Teen People with Love-Hewitt on the cover (Hey Alex, do you know about this??? Ha ha) and here is more info. on it...
    I just got my new teen people with Jennifer Love Hewitt on the cover.There are three pictures of mariah in there,one is on page 60 it is the november calendar and it says a little thing about the bachelor,the next one is on page 96 and it is a picture of her at the oscars and a picture of her feet,and the last one is on page 98 and it has a picture of her back side in a silver dress...

    9/23/99 Okay thanks to Alex I have about 30 screen captures of Mariah from the MTV/TRL interview yesterday. I added 4 of the captures to a collage and they are now in the "Picture of the Week" section on the main page right under the title gif and Quote of the Week pic. I also added a new Quote and if you are in InfoMC, this webpages newsletter, you will be getting many of the other ones today :)

    Okay Anderz told me that Mariah herself said she never saw the Mirror/Ok/Examiner White Bikini bathing suits meaning that the article was fake, and looks like the Playboy rumors ARE rumors. We can all take a big *sigh* now, especially Lisa :) Hee hee..thank goodness!!

    Speaking of Anderz you can now here the song "They Can't Take That Away From Me" from Mariah's forthcoming "Rainbow" album at his site :) Also there is part of the Z100 interview at his site. If anyone got this on tape, PLEASE e-mail me. I want a copy really bad and I will make it worth your while!!

    Krayzie2002 told me this....
    At our high school every year we have a lip synch contest....this year my friends and I are doing....Heartbreaker...2 of our friends are great choreographers and we're all going to be dancing and a really big show wit lights, smoke, and fire...I just thought I'd let you know because A LOT of people go to this and I think it will help a little with the sales of Heartbreaker....(hey every copy counts as mariah proved when she bought 2 copies of her single yesterday lol)
    That is cool..lol :)

    GMarie419 told me some great news for anyone in Chicago...
    Mariah Carey was supposed to call B96 today (9/23), a radio station in Chicago. While they (Eddie & Jobo) were waiting for her to call (at about 9:15am), they were joking about how she doesn't like to wake up before 3pm! hehe, sounds like me. But anyway, she never did call, they said she'd call tomorrow. They said she's a great lady, but lives in her own time zone! hehe. Well I'll listen tomorrow and let ya know what happens!

    Update for 9/22 Okay I can't tell you HOW MANY people e-mailed me about Letterman. Yes I know she was not on and I was just as sad as you were. However, it is not my fault she wasn't. The Official Fan Club said she would be, as did Z100 yesterday!! Possibly she was just too tired to show up. I'm recording tonight's just incase, but I doubt anything will be shown!!

    There is some good news though :) Mariah was on TRL at #7 today plus they showed more of MC around NY. They also had a pretty big segment on Mariah on Access Hollywood which I really liked!! Someone told me she was on E! News Daily but I missed that :( Oh well....

    Thanks to Nini for sending me this pic and article from NY Daily News
    Mariah Takes Manhattan
    Mariah Carey eats at a McDonald's yesterday. Mariah Carey played ordinary New Yorker yesterday. Pushing her new "Rainbow" album (due Nov. 2), the songbird went shopping at the Manhattan Mall, ate McNuggets at McDonald's and even bought a MetroCard. Does she actually ride the subway? Her rep declined to comment, citing "security reasons." Safe to say, your typical straphanger doesn't fly by helicopter to ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange. Unfortunately for traders who were itching to see the sex kitten, bad weather grounded Carey's chopper in New Jersey, so she didn't make it in time.

    Several people sent me this next info...
    On this day..Sept 22nd...
    In 1993, "Dreamlover" single by Mariah Carey was certified Gold and Platinum
    On the charts:
    In 1995, Mariah Carey's single "Fantasy" debuted at the top of the Billboard Hot 100. She was the first female artist to achieve this feat.

    Not So Good MC News:
    First we hear about it in the Mirror Tabloid, then it was onto the OK! Tabloid, then to Jay Leno and now to VH1??? Yup, you heard me right..these Playboy rumors are being blown out of proportion. I personnaly don't think Mariah would say this or ever expose herself in that way!! Here is what kristen wrote me...
    Hi! On "Women First" they reported that Mariah is considering doing a photo shot for Playboy. They said it was reported in the Mirror and the New York Post. She was quoted saying something in this manner: I would like to do something risky but it will cost them. Madison Michelle then said I bet they would pay anything for Mariah. Hopefully MC doesn't do this.

    Hopefully indeed..moving along...MTV.com has an article about MC in NYC too...
    Not even a rainstorm could stop Mariah Carey from strolling the streets of New York City to celebrate Tuesday's release of her new single, "Heartbreaker." With entourage in tow (of course), Mariah mingled with fans at Manhattan Mall, browsed through some CDs at HMV, and chowed down on cheeseburgers and fries at McDonalds. MTV News' own John Norris was her lucky escort, and he brought back proof of Mariah's mall-girl shenanigans for us to present for you here in RealVideo. The "Heartbreaker" single features a DJ Clue remix with guest spots from Missy Elliott and Da Brat, and a maxi-single includes three additional Junior Vasquez remixes. Carey's "Rainbow," her first studio album since 1997's "Butterfly," is due out on November 2.

    Here are Tuesdays and Wednesday request on TRL thanks to Sara :)
    Tues.: I voted for Mariah Carey's "Heartbreaker" because I love Mariah and everytime I hear this song I crank it up and sing along. JAY, IN

    9/22/99 Just adding some news...more will be added tomorrow night. I was watching TRL today and they some part of an interview that John Norris did with Mariah today during her spree in NYC. They showed her at McDonnalds and a Mall's cd store!! They will be showing more tomorrow and by the way MC was #7 on TRL today :)

    Also Mariah will be on Access Hollywood tomorrow night. Alex and some other people told me this and you check it out at 7:30 pm EST tomorrow the 22nd!!!

    Hydrogirl2 told me that Mariah is in the new Marie Claire magazine on pages 215 and 217. The first is the little picture of her face from the essence awards and it's under the title "Places to shop" The second is the picture of the back of her dress from the same awards and the article is talking about toned backs and shows Mariah's as an example

    I don't know if I mentioned this but they show a back shot of MC in the new Cosmo with Neve on the cover. Nothing much just talking about her hair and the back shot is from the 1999 Essence awards :) A lot of back shots from that event it seems :)

    A new countdown is being started on the main page for the release of the new album..."Rainbow." Thanks to Alex for helping me on that again :)

    Okay MeSiCaNQD e-mailed me this story and I was JUST AMAZED. You have to read this because this is SO AWESOME...
    hey we should get a nation wide campaign goin here... what i have done for mariahs new single is i drew a pic of the cover like u did except i put mariah and then hearbreaker featuring jay z in stores sept 21 and then i put get your copy asap! i've made over 100 copies so far and have been handing them out at school and the teachers that love me hang them up in their rooms.. then since the single went on sale here early last nite i bought a whole bunch of tapes and CDs and gave them away at school today and i got the song to be played over the intercom a few minutes before school started and when they read the daily announcements over the intercom i got them to put in a special advertisement for mariah "After 13 number ones the biggest selling female recording artist of the decade mariah carey is back for more. With her new album, Rainbow, due out in Nov. Heartbreaker feat. Jay Z is the 1st single off that album and in stores now so be a sweetheart and get your copy today!" if we can get alot of mariah fans promoting this single like i am, its sure to go #1 in a quickness... and then maybe it'll get her to finally do a U.S. tour... all this we have to be thinking about.. I have bought over 20 tapes and 25 CDs just to give away... what do you think?

    Liz told me that when she went to get her Heartbreaker single she found out her warehouse was COMPLETLY sold out an hour and a half later. Isn't that amazing???

    9/21/99 Okay I just spent $60 on MC. Here is the run down on prices and things I bought...
    Heartbreaker Cassette Single ($1.99)
    Heartbreaker CD Single ($1.99 on sale!! Tracks:
    Album Version
    Remix with DaBrat and Missy
    Junior Club Mix
    Junior's Club Dub
    Juniors Hard Mix)
    Pavorotti and Friends Video ($30)
    Pavorotti and Friends CD ($20)
    Heartbreaker Vinyl-Coming Tonight!!

    Okay I was reading Mariah Carey Archives and he said that he got a four track cause I was wondering where the "No Rap" version was?? Here are the tracks of the 4 track Heartbreaker..anyone get this?? I want to know if it is released in US...
    Heartbreaker
    1. Album Version (Featuring Jay-Z) (4:18)

    3. No Rap Version (3:21)
    Heartbreaker / "If you should ever be lonely"

    That doesn't have the other two Junior mixes. I have to say that the Remixes to Heartbreaker are Mariah's BEST since Anytime You Need a Friend. I loved those remixes and the Heartbreaker remixes are just AMAZING. I can't describe how cool it is!! MAKE SURE you go pick up your Heartbreaker cd singles today or this week. Let's get MC to #1 on Billboard!!

    IF anyone can get me a stand, e-mail me. I talked to Sam Goody and they said that 3 guys already claimed it :( It is so cool looking..anyone else see it??

    HuNniEMG told me that the Wall Street Bell is rung at 9:30 am sharp :) Hope ET and Access shows it!!

    Here is what www.mcarey.com posted on their site...
    WATCH THE MAKING OF THE "HEARTBREAKER" REMIX VIDEO Tune into MTV News on Tuesday 9/21 @ 8:50am and 10:50am to see Mariah Carey on the set of the "Heartbreaker" Remix video featuring DaBrat.

    Updating the News a tad early for Tuesday but SO MUCH news is being thrown my way and I want to get it to you people. The Official Mariah Carey Fan Club sent out a HUGE list of appearances and places Mariah will be at tomorrow however they said that it can NOT be reproduced in anyway. I was listening to Q102 tonight and they released something else so now I can release it to you all. Tomorrow morning Mariah will be ringing the Wall Street Bell at the Stockexchange. They said to turn into MSNBC for coverage. Also make sure you tune into MTV, Entertainment Tonight, and Access Hollywood because Mariah will be making 3 other stops which I can't tell you guys about due because of the Official fan club not wanting anything said??? I don't know why it is being kept a HUGE secret..bizarre!! Anyhow..read below for something REALLY important...
    Make sure you tune in to David Letterman tomorrow night, Sept. 21st. I can't say why due to copyright laws but it is SO IMPORTANT that you do so!! Set your VCR's to record!! You will thank me later :D

    Alan told me that Mariah will probably be on Z-100 between 7-8 pm because she will be on KTU (103.5) at 6:45 am

    Moving Along, Mariah is NOW recording the Heartbreaker Remix Video with DaBrat and Missy. The Quote of the Week pic is the one that adorns this next article...
    Mariah Shoots "Heartbreaker" Remix Video With Snoop, Missy, Da Brat
    Mariah Carey donned a black wig for her original "Heartbreaker" video, and now she's lacing up a pair of gold roller skates for the remix version. Snoop Dogg, Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, Da Brat, and DJ Clue all join Carey in the new clip for the "Heartbreaker" remix, which was shot in New York City this past weekend with director Diane Martell, who previously worked with Mariah on videos for "Dreamlover" and "Butterfly." While taking a quick break from the shoot, Carey and her cohorts chatted about the remix as well as the "baby diva" convention assembled for the video's ill-fated (and, yes, fictional) wedding of Snoop and Da Brat. "It's a remix to 'Heartbreaker,' and we looped 'Ain't No Fun,' which is one of Snoop's biggest records, and I sang 'Heartbreaker' on top of it," Carey told MTV News. "Da Brat and Missy did some amazing rhymes on top of it. So we're kind of having a little diva-fest here, having a good time, and the girls, the 'baby divas' here, are all joining in, and it's just going to be cute." The remix of "Heartbreaker" hits store shelves on Tuesday, with a rap-less version as part of the package. The original version of the song, featuring Jay-Z and DJ Clue, will be featured on Carey's highly anticipated album "Rainbow," which is slated to drop on November 2.
    COOL BEANS..I wonder when we can see the new video on MTV. Probably in a week or two...

    Kristen wrote to me and told me that she saw a book called "Girl Power" and it has 2 pages on MC. There was a pic from the Z100 Bash and it talked about "The Bachelor" and her heartbreak w/Tommy Mottla.

    98 Degrees Find Mariah Carey At The End Of The Rainbow Sep 13, 1999, 3:30 pm PT
    Continuing a trend of flash-in-the-pan boy bands teaming with long-lasting superstars (see 'NSync and Gloria Estefan's "Music Of My Heart"), 98 Degrees has joined forces with Mariah Carey for a track on the diva's forthcoming album, Rainbow, set for release on Nov. 2 by Columbia Records. The boys and Carey, along with producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, hopped into a New York recording studio last week to lay down "Thank God I Found You" for the album. In addition to 98 Degrees, Rainbow also includes special guest appearances by Jay-Z, who raps on the current single "Heartbreaker"; Usher, who duets with Carey on "That's How Much I Love You;" Da Brat and Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, who are featured on the remix of "Heartbreaker."...
    More news coming tomorrow so MAKE SURE you tune back into this webpage :)

    9/20/99 Two very important things today. First, Mariah was #7 on Friday's TRL and #10 for the Weekend edition. Let's try and get her higher so please vote for her if you cna by clicking the above link. Second PLEASE PLEASE buy the Heartbreaker single the first week it is being released, which starts tomorrow. We can then give her a #1 single and a debuet at #1 meaning she would have 4 of the 7 right?? Come on people..beg your parents to take you to store and if they say NO..walk!! LOL..well not if it is 80,000 miles away.

    Speaking of tomorrow's release, Tamara wrote to me an idea she wants all girls to do tomorrow when they pick up their heartbreaker single..ha ha..read on...
    I think that this is an awesome idea, and I'm gonna do it. Tell everyone in your next newsletter to dress up sort of like mariah in her "Heartbreaker" video for tuesday to celebrate it's release- I'm gonna wear blue jeans, a pink tube top, my nails pink w/ a heart sticker on it, high heels, and a pink heart ring. I'm gonna wear my hair like the "real mariah". Wouldn't it be cool if everyone wore pink on Tuesday? All her female fans, anyway. Tell me what you think, and tell me what everyone else thinks of this idea. Ha ha...okay I will be doing it baby!! I'll wear jeans and a pink top and wear my hair curly with alittle pink clip in it. I don't know if I have any pink nailpolish though :O Ha ha..you can join in if you want..it's all for fun though!! We might be borderlining TOO obsessed but oh well....

    My GOOD friend Anja told me that Mariah will be on Germany's Interaktiv and Bravo TV now meaning there will probably be another magazine spread :) Cool Beans!! She'll be appearing on Bravo on Oct. 18th. You have international news??? Send it my way and I'll get it on the website!!

    Also if you are having problems getting Interview magazine, try your local bookstore. It would be around the Rolling Stone magzine and Billboard magazine. They don't carry many at my Borders bookstore..only two. If they get more in I will buy them and start sending them to people if they are really having a hard time!!

    Oh and Z-100 morning show airs from 6-10 am I found out from Sally :) Thanks Sally!!!

    9/19/99 Whew I just spent 20 minutes typing out this huge article and my wrist are killing me. Anyhow in the back of Interview magazine that features MC, I found out yesterday that there is a nice size article on her and here it is thanks to me for typing it out..lol...
    Mariah Carey by Dimitri Ehrlich
    Dimitri Ehrlich: Hi Mariah, where are you?
    MC: I'm in Capri recording. I'm doing my new album in a shorter period of time than usual, so I'm kind of stressed, but it's good
    D: Capri's an island off the coast of Italy, right?
    MC: To get to this studio, first you have to take a plane to Rome and then another place to Naples, and then you have to take a ferry and walk uphill for about a mile...
    D: You can't drive?
    MC: It's physically impossible to drive up tihs hill. It's the size of a hallway.
    D: So Mariah Carey is trudging up a hill?
    MC: Oh, I do it every night. But I'm the one in the front, like, "Come on everybody!"
    D: What's the name of the album, by the way?
    MC: I'm calling it Rainbow. I was going into the studio in LA, and there were two really clear rainbows, one on top of theother-I'd never seen that before-and I was just having this really stressful day, which is standard for me...But it was kind of indicative of my whole struggle, which is that there is light at the end of the tunnel which hopefully is not a freight train. This guy from the restaurant last night who barely speaks English, so there's no way he would know, said my manager yesterday, "Oh , I have a gift got Mariah, please give this to her." And it was this hat that said something like, "You're the rainbow." Like, how did that have anything to do with anything? When I did Butterfly, everywhere I went I would see butterflies. I'd see them everywhere, whether it was a pattern on a wall, or actuall butterflies; somehow they were following me.
    D: Butterfly was obviously a watershed chance in your musical career in that it really stepped out into a darker and harder R&B sound whick kind of put your toes in the hip hop worls and then, with a series of remixes, cemented that move. Do you think your audience changed?
    MC: I have a broad demographic, which is why soemtimes it's difficult. But I also have an audience that is urban and one that's Middle America. when I'm sequencing this album, and I want to put as the first song on my album my remix to the beat of (Snoop Dogg's) "Ain't No Fun" starting out with Jay-Z and DJ Clue and Missy Elliott and Da Brat, I'm of like, Well, I'm not so sure about everybody who buys this album fothe second single-which is a ballad-putting it on and hearing (this hip hop song). They might get totally flipped out and take it out of their cd player and break it in two. So I have to really be a little bit conscious od the fact that it's broad, and also it's diverse in terms of the racial thing. I am anyway, being a mixed person racially.
    DE:would you say that you had an uphappy childhood or a happy childhood?
    MC: I would say I had a combination of both. It wasn't a traditional upbringing. My mother was a white Irish-Catholic woman married to a...
    DE: ...half-Venezuelan, half African-American man.
    MC: Yes. And my mother was disowned by her family. Then my parents got divorced, which was probably very good for me. It happened when I was three. My brother and siter had a much worse childhood, I think, because they were older, and they had to deal witha lot more racism because they grew up in the '70s and I grew up more in the '80s. So they had to deal with crosses being burned on their lawn and their dogs being poisoned.
    DE: Now, the generation gap was obviously huge between you and your ex-husband (Sony Music Entertaiment CEO Tommy Motolla). Can you talk about age and men in terms of how the age different can sometimes be appealing, and how it works and how it doesn't work?
    MC: I think that for me personnaly, a lot of my choices have been to do with my own issues of not feeling safe as a child and not feeling a secnce of stability.
    DE: Wanting a father figure type of thing?
    MC: I didn't have a strong male figure in mylife on a day-to-day basis. So I think that whole (marriage) situation, a lot of stems from a place where I was out ther alone as a really young girl and I always felt like the rug could be pulled out from under me. (with Tommy) I felt safe and I felt a sence of family. It just didn't work out because it became too suffocating.
    DE: Do you ever feel like you're emotionally inaccessible to yourself?
    MC: Especially since I started studying acting, I feel like I'm always super-aware of my emotions and my feelings and what's going on with me at every moment. I definately think I wasn't very present prior to that. Because to exist in the situation I was existing in for so long, and to not have na outlet other than singing, and to feel frustrated that I couldn't necessarily do what I wanted musically in the midst of all that was really difficult. My emotion was blocked because I couldn't have survived what I went through. I'm not saying that me blocking my stuff was healthy. I'm saying that was my defense mechanism. That's how I got through it. But the minute I started addressing my feelings, I actually came out of very negative situations.
    If you use this article, please credit me :) Thanks!!

    Sarah e-mailed me an told me that she already got the maxi of Heartbreaker. The cd itself has 5 tracks which basically are the normal version with Jay-Z, Remix with Da Brat and Missy, No Rap, and then two remixes. She told me that #4 is SO amazing so I can't wait..how about you. Man these next two days will take forever!!

    Brianne wrote me and told me that her store is selling the single for $.99 and $.49 for the cassette. Wow..that sure is cheep but she says it will help with sales?? Well anyhow the really cool part of what she wrote to be about was that her store is giving out Little Promo Bookmarks :D Mella wrote me and told me that she got a lollypop that is a cherry heart and says Heartbreaker on it. Then the stick says Mariah Carey down it. So Heartbreaker seems to be heavy presses from Sony...Posters, Lolly-Pops, Stickers, and Bookmarks :)

    Nini sent me this...

    Tomas of Sweetheart Mariah, told me that Mariah was on this weekends edition of "Inside Edition." Here is what happened...
    They were talking about the 9.9.99 Charity Event for MS that was held in LA. She wore something similar (same style) to the greenish outfit she wore at the Blockbuster Awards but the bottom was a light brownish color. Her hair was also straight. She looked wonderful! Well, thats all they mentioned.

    9/18/99 Well every website and every newsletter is talking about this awesome new news. The tracklisting for the new cd "Rainbow" is finnaly released and here it is...
    'Heartbreaker' Featuring Jay-Z
    'Thank God I Found You' Featuring Joe & 98°
    'Against All Odds' (Take A Look At Me Now)
    'After Tonight'
    'My Love Goes'
    'They Can Try'
    'How Much' Featuring Usher
    'Crybaby'
    'Rainbow' (Interlude)
    'It Ain't My Fault' Featuring Mystikal & Master P
    'Ex-Girlfriend'
    'Heartbreaker' (Remix) Featuring Da Brat & Missy Elliott
    "Rainbow" will be in stores, Tuesday, November 2, 1999.
    Now first of all a HUGE thanks to Anderz for this awesome information. It is 12 tracks like most of MC's other cd's, 11 if you don't count the Heartbreaker Remix. Now Mariah is also working on another NEW album due out next year for her soundtrack so that is one of the main reason why there probably isn't more songs on the cd. However I think the cd tracking sounds GREAT..what about you???

    "Against All Odds" is said to be a remake of the Phil Collins song named the same name. This would be fantastic if it is true because it is a BEAUTIFUL song. So let's hope for that!!

    Some people have been e-mailing me and telling that they got the "Heartbreaker" single already?? Some small cd stores put the merchandise out early but usually stores like Sam Goody hold off until the actual release date. I'll check out Tunes tonight and let you all know!!

    Speaking of Heartbreaker, I am VERY jealous of people of Israel..LOL. It seems that if you live in Israel and you go to Towr Records at Tel Aviv on Sept. 21st you will get a free special Heartbreaker poster!!! Isn't that awesome??? I think it is :D

    Here is what Ron from the Philippines sent me...
    Mariah Carey's HEARTBREAKER moved to number 3 from number 4 last week in the Final Countdown of Magic 89.9 DWTM. They played the remix version for the show. However, in RX 93.1, HEARTBREAKER slide to number 8 from last week's number 7th position. Relatively though, she's doing great here in the Philippines.

    Alex sent me a link to a not so good Bachelor review. If you are really bored and want to check it out..ha ha...Click Here

    This next info. is also courtesy of Anderz from Mariah's Diary..
    On Sept. 28, Warner Home Video is reissuing "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," "The Year Without a Santa Claus," and "A Christmas Story" ($15 apiece). Available on the same day from Sony Music Entertainment is "VH1's Pop-Up Video Christmas" ($10), a 40-minute tape that includes seven music videos, among them Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" and Billy Squier's "Christmas Is the Time to Say I Love You."

    Okay if you missed Mariah's #1 Special on MTV last year or you missed the show itself, MTV is reairing the Jim Carrey and Mariah Carey fight on Celebrity Deathmatch on 10/2/99 at 5 pm EST :)

    9/17/99 Well sorry this news is about an hour late but I went to Borders Bookstore to pick up the October issue of Interview Magazine. Yup Mariah Carey is in it towards the back. It is pretty much exactly looking as the Heartbreaker cover. She has on a different top though, facing the other way and is smiling BIG TIME!! Hee hee..she looks so cute cause she is holding a lolly pop too. Man I wish I had a scanner. SPEAKING OF SCANNERS, my good friend Lisa sent me a scan of the Glamour pic in which Mariah will be appearing on the cover of next month, hitting stands October 12th...click to see bigger format...

    More magazine news, I just picked up the OK! tabloid at Borders which features 6 White Bikini Shots from that "Mirror" photo shoot. There are some different ones and they are really nice :) Try and stop by and pick yourself up one!!

    EVEN MORE magazine news, Mariah is on the cover of the August 30th issue of TV Y Novelas. Inside there are 4 pics that we have all seen of Luis and MC in the Limo but they are really big and the mafgazine is only $1.75 so pick it up :)

    Tomas told me that he has better versions of the Heartbreaker Junior Mixes and you can check them out at his fantastic website, Sweetheart Mariah

    A couple people told me that you can vote for Mariah on the People Website. Click here and you can go to the Mariah portion on the website and here is what it says under the photo..
    Mariah Carey
    Following her 1997 split from her Svengali-like husband, Sony Music Entertainment chairman Tommy Mottola, songbird Mariah Carey, previously known for soaring ballads and sleek clothes, injected a new edginess into her sound -- and a new brazenness into her style. But she's taking her fashion freedom too far, our panelists say: The diva doesn't need to put every inch of her 5'9" body on constant display. "There's no reason someone should wear such tight clothes; it never looks nice," scolds The View's Francine Taylor. Agrees Audrey Style author Pamela Keogh: "Tighter and shorter is not always better." The overall effect, says British designer Samantha Shaw, is "very garish and all bust and legs." And Star Wars costumer Trisha Biggar wonders whether Carey, 30, who "obviously goes by an 'if you've got it, flaunt it' motto," is even enjoying herself. Carey's gowns "must be hard to walk in," she says, "and to sit in them all night wouldn't be fun."

    Here are the comments on TRL from Wednesday (#10), Thursday (#10) and Friday (#7!!!!)...

    More MC news for 9/16/99 Nini saw another interview that Luis did recently and Mariah came up in 3 of the questions..here they are....
    Q: Are you in love?
    L: I'm happy personally and professionally. I'm not talking about Anything else, you know that.
    Q: When you're in the love making mood, whose music do you listen To, hers or yours?(meaning Mariah)
    L: (laughs) I like all types of music. (He doesn't answer the Question).
    Q: Since your now seeing someone who speaks English,(Mariah) shouldn't you start singing in English?
    L: So does this mean I should start singing in French too? Interviewer: Hey, I didn't know that! (They both laugh)

    Nini also told me that she was watching Access Hollywood last night and Mariah is in some magazine wearing a white tank top, like the one from the Heartbreaker cover, and a blue bikinni bottom. She is in the magazine for being on The Top 30 list. Anyhow know what magazine? Nini says she think they said Interview Magazine Nini also said that Puffy,Sarah Jessica Parker are also on the list. Kate Moss is on the cover Half naked too I am told..HA HA!!

    9/16/99 First things first, there are some updates on the site....
    New Quote of Week with new Pic
    New Pic. of the Week
    My Stuff-Video Section
    Links
    Quotes
    I updated the pic of the week and everything today cause I couldn't make it school...the hurricane is kind of hitting us here in Jersey. Also I will be making a new Banner for "My Stuff" of my new room shots. So if you want to see my crazy walls, check it out

    Problem for MC..
    Well we all know that the nasty "Mirror" article couldn't of been true but now rumors are being spread..all the way to Jay Leno. Dustin told me that he was watching Jay Leno last night and he said that Mariah is considering posing naked for Playboy!!! I HIGHLY doubt Mariah would ever do such a think and I that if she did I would loose a lot of respect for her!! Just my opinion but I don't think she needs to stoop to that level. Plus Anderz himself said that the Mirror is a tabloid and that it is proven that it was made up the one time!! So let's hope she doesn't go through with this and that it is just a NASTY rumor!!!

    Jess e-mailed me and told me that Mariah was on the VH1 Top 10 Countdown the other day for "I'll Be There?" Yup you heard me right, they were doing the Best 5 Covers on the 70's. That's pretty cool :)

    My VERY good friend Anja informed me of some WONDERFUL news. Mariah will be making an appearance in Germany from October 9th to the 11th. She will be making an appearance on the show VIVA and Anja told me she might be able to go since she has a friend who has connections :) So happy for her!! Anja met Mariah before and took some AWESOME pictures of her that she sent to me from Cologne 1998 I believe!! Hopefully she will meet her again :)

    Aaron told me the folling tidbit from the Philippines...
    For the third day in a row, Mariah Carey's HEARTBREAKER has been number one in the Early Returns Countdown of Magic 89.9 DWTM here in the Philippines. That's really cool since it has been a long time since Ms. Carey had a hit song here.

    However, I have a little surprise for you today cause I am adding two pics. The first one is from the Daily News Article I posted in yesterdays news..it's a nice pic so I deceided to add it and the second is a nice picture of MC in a red bikinni which also is from MTV Germany. Both will be added to Gallery 10 but here is a SNEAK PEAK before you click on over into the Picture Gallery...

    Nini sent me this cool article that she got from www.cdnow.com
    Continuing a trend of flash-in-the-pan boy bands teaming with long-lasting superstars (see 'NSync and Gloria Estefan's "Music Of My Heart"), 98 Degrees has joined forces with Mariah Carey for a track on the diva's forthcoming album, Rainbow, set for release on Nov. 2 by Columbia Records. The boys and Carey, along with producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, hopped into a New York recording studio last week to lay down "Thank God I Found You" for the album. In addition to 98 Degrees, Rainbow also includes special guest appearances by Jay-Z, who raps on the current single "Heartbreaker"; Usher, who duets with Carey on "That's How Much I Love You;" Da Brat and Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, who are featured on the remix of "Heartbreaker."

    Here is another nice article from Nini..man what would I do without her??? :)
    Besides making a video Sunday at KDWB's Last Chance Summer Dance at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Mariah Carey has been busy in the Twin Cities. She came to town to record one song with Grammy-winning producers Jimmy Jamand Terry Lewis. She ended up working on six numbers at their Flyte Tyme studios in Edina. "All six [recording] rooms were going at once," said Jimmy Jam. "It's crazy but fun." Carey has to meet a Wednesday deadline to finish all the recordings for her new album, "Rainbow," which is due in stores in November. She has worked with several producers, including David Foster and Jermaine Dupri. "She's a trouper; you have to kick her out of the studio," Jam said Sunday. "I like working at crunch time."

    A couple people e-mailed me about a commecial they saw on VH1 that features a SNL show about all the performances and Mariah is shown in it. Alex looked it up here and said he didn't see Mariah listed but the special will take place on September 26th, 8pm EST. Make sure you tune in cause they show her on the commercial :)

    Okay someone, I forget who, sent me a link to a Mariah Carey Hate Page. If you want to visit it and send this guy or gal a nice e-mail saying how he/she must have A LOT of time on their hands, then click HERE

    9/14/99 I am BACK!! Thanks Alex for posting that message for me. AOL Access Numbers have been down since Sunday where I live so that is why I havn't updated..eck. Anyhow here is the MC news you have all been waiting for...

    Armando told me that Heartbreaker jumped from #23 to #18 on Much Music Countdown. Cool Beans!!!

    Here is an article that mentions Mariah that Nini sent me :)
    More Women's Work: Need more to keep you humming? Expect new offerings from Melissa Etheridge, Tori Amos (a two-CD set: one of live faves, the other of new studio stuff), Mariah Carey, Paula Cole, Meredith Brooks, Indigo Girls and En Vogue, as well as a duet album from Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris. Even the newly stage-fright-free Babs is set to release a new album. What a funny girl!

    Meski sent me a transcipt from an interview on MTV Germany that Mariah did on Saturday!!
    Interview - Brand : Neu - Mtv Germany - 11/09/99
    Q: Thank you for Mariah for doing this interview with Mtv Europe.
    M: Thank you
    Q: Now, the new album is called Rainbow. You know the legend goes that if you follow the Rainbow you find a pot of gold at the end of it that all your dreams will come true.
    M: And that's what I'm hoping for
    Q: And all your dreams have come true, most of them have. Tell us how Mariah Carey began her journey to find her Rainbow
    M: Well... Let's see... How did I begin my journey to find my Rainbow...? Well, ha, ha... I don't know, I gues it all started when I was a little girl and I wanted to be a singer and... hmm... I started using music as kind of like my saving grace. And... hmm... I just always knew that I wanted to be a singer and I started writing songs when I was like 13 and doing sessions and hmm I was a backup singer and I was a session singer that's a... as like a 13-year-old girl in Long Island for a lot of people and I would hear these songs and I'd be like I'd wanna write this like I'd hear and I'd go "So you really want me to sing this song?" like "Who is gonna like this?" and at that point I sort of felt the desire to wanna write and to wanna be a singer-songwriter and there was a lot of... people were sceptical because like being young, you know, and a girl, they just figured "yeah, right, what are you gonna do?" And then kept doing it and hm trying to develope my stuff and hmm I became a backup singer, moved to the city at 17, worked for Brenda K Starr who was like a big sister to me and helped me out so much and helped me, hmm. She gave my tape to a very big record executive who we all know and love and... hmm, here I am. Ha, ha, ha
    Q: You began singing when you were 4. Do you remember your earliest memory. Have you got any of those... stories. Or can you remember your maybe your favourite song as a child...
    M: Hmm... Every song that came on the radio when I was... s... from the time I remember hearing the radio. I would learn and sing along with TV commercials I would sing along like anything I heard. My mother would be singing opera in the house and I would sing along with that.
    Q: Tell us about the new single, the latest single. The title, the concept, the lyrics...
    M (Smiling): The new single is caled Heartbreaker and the concept of the song is err... pretty relatable to a lot of girls you know most girls usually like the bad guys you know. This is about a girl who keeps going back to hmm an unhealthy situation with this heartbreaker guy. And, hmm, I actually wrote it here in Capri, I wrote, I started writing it in Mexico and I finished writing it in Capri so it's kind of been a global process and hmm I recorded it here in Capri and... it's one of my favourite things I've done in a while, I also did... so it... so the song features Jay-Z hmm it was a loop that err Dj Clue gave me 'cause he and I are friends and, you know, he had his album out and he was doing a lot more production and stuff and it was just like the minute I heard the loop it's actually from a Stacy Lattisaw record, from like 1981 called "Attack Of The Name Game" and I usually know every old loop but this one, Clue really swung in at home with this one because this was... nobody was thinking about, you know, this loop and hmm, so I wrote the song on top of it and, hmm, err... we called Jay and he came and he did his rhyme like so quick, he didn't even write anything down just of the top of his head just like... came up with the the most with such a clever lyric in like 2 seconds and he's amazing so I was really really happy with the collaboration. And there's also a remix, I don't know if you've heard the remix, but the remix has Missy Elliot and Da Brat and it's to the loop of "Ain't No Fun" by Snoop and it's... really really like one of my favourite things I've done in a long time so we're gonna shoot the remix video for that soon.

    Nini sent me a cool article talking about the released of the Pavorotti and Friends concert CD...
    It's not every day that Mariah Carey, Ricky Martin, B.B. King, Joe Cocker and Gloria Estefan come together for a concert. But when opera star Luciano Pavarotti calls, pop stars tend to clear their schedule. On June 1, Pavarotti, Carey, Martin, King, Cocker, Estefan and others came together for the "Pavarotti & Friends" concert in Modena, Italy, to benefit the War Child organization, with artists performing songs on their own and with the Italian tenor. Of course, many fans of Carey, Martin, and the other performers from the star-studded bill couldn't get to Modena, Italy for the show. Happily for them, a CD from the concert, to be titled "Pavarotti & Friends for Guatemala and Kosovo," will be released on September 21. In an official statement touting the release of the CD, Carey says that she was pleased to take part in the event. "Pavarotti's a legend," Carey said. "His voice is one of the most incredible ever, so I was honored when he asked me to perform with him. Music has a universal voice and, as there are so many people in need, particularly now, it's an important time for artists to get together, not only to raise money but also awareness for great causes." War Child is a charity that raises funds to help children whose lives have been affected by war. For more on the War Child organization, check out their Web site at www.warchild.org.

    Mariah was in a New York newspaper called The Daily News. It had a nice picture of her and here is the article...
    "Mariah Carey's in a revealing mood these days, as evidenced by the crocheted outfit she wore at a dinner in Los Angeles last week. Mariah Carey knows how to work that body. She's just back from Capri, where she struck some bosomy poses for photgraphers at her hotel. "It's time for me to do something a bit risque," London's Mirror, which features some of the pics, quotes her as saying "Playboy may ask me to do something for them, but I'll tell you this...they'll have to offer a lot of money."

    Maria told me that you can check out the Junior Mixes Here I havn't checked them out yet due to lack of time!!

    Meski sent me an interview that Luis did in Spain recently. Here are the parts that he mentioned Mariah in...
    I want my album to show the way I'm feeling at the moment and, the album is called "Loving You Is A Pleasure" and I think that if you read between the lines you'll guess who I'm talking about (Everybody applauded)
    (Asked about his girlfriend) My girlfriend? That's what you said? Well the word "Girlfriend" doesn't exist for me, it sounds similar to marriage, children...
    I'm a lonely person, I like enjoying my privacy. At home, with my family...with my girlfriend (smiles)
    (Asked about a duet with Mariah saying that it would be a good combination) That IS a good combination.
    I don't mix the proffesional stuff with the personal stuff. I think that admiring someone that you love, maybe your family, your friend... youre girlfriend... it's really beautiful and I think that there's a mutual admiration between us, and that's very beautiful.

    9/13/99...
    Dear loyal readers,
    Due to some unfortunate circumstances with America Online (or as I like to call them: "Damn AOL"), Regina is unable to update this site or send out InfoMC. Hopefully, she'll be back soon. In the meantime, keep mailing her news (WildCatHG@aol.com) for when she finally returns. Also, rely on the other InfoMC presidents for your daily Mariah fix. Finally, don't forget to vote for "Heartbreaker" on MTV's TRL everyday.

    Thank you,
    Alex

    9/11/99 AOL has been down for me since yesterday and that is why I havn't updated this site. Sorry about that..here is todays news (thanks Alex!!)

    Adorible20 and several other people told me that Mariah is on the cover of the new Entertainment Weekly with the BSB on the cover also. It is a tiny article and here it is.... ariah is in a little picture on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. and this is what is says in it........ Mariah Carey-Rainbow In addition to the usual melisma-soaked balladry and smooth-as-chardonnay R&B, look for Miss Thang to work more pronounced hip hop moves into her latest. Puff Daddy and Missy Elliot gave Butterfly (1997) its rap cachet. Rainbow's coalition of groove merchants (including DJ Clue) and mad rappers (Jay-Z, Da Brat) carry Mariah closer still to rap's rhythm nation in her never-ending search for street cred. (Nov. 2)

    Mariah is also mentioned in the Jay-Z section of the articles about his new album and it says that she will be featured on it :) Here is the article... Mariah Carey, meanwhile, lends her powerful pipes to the track "The Things That You Do". "I put a do-rag on Mariah in the studio," Jay-Z laughs. "We thugged out-she got with the ghetto flavor."

    Make sure you pick up your new People Weekly for Mariah is in it several times..I think someone said 5!! Just don't read the text....

    Lissa sent me something really cool. She saw Mariah and here is her story from recently!!! I saw her completely!! She was so gorgous! She waved to us and she smiled for pix, I took 25, and I also found out that the video with her and 98 degrees will be filmed at the concert Last Chance Summer Dance!! So I'm gonna be in her next video!! I dont have a transcript yet, but I will get one for you! I'm so excited hyper and freaking out!! I SAW MARIAH!!! I LOVE MARIAH!

    Chris told me Luis's new album is called, "Amarte Es Un Placer" and it hits stores this Tuesday so maybe we can see if MC is on it :)

    Mia, Magazine Buddy, told me that Mariah is in the new Enquirer. There are several pics of her in which some include the White Bathing Suit Pics from the Mirror Tabloid!! She is also in it again for a make over from when she first came out and now. What a difference!

And, hmm, I actually wrote it here in Capri, I wrote, I started writing it in Mexico and I finished writing it in Capri so it's kind of been a global process and hmm I recorded it here in Capri and... it's one of my favourite things I've done in a while, I also did... so it... so the song features Jay-Z hmm it was a loop that err Dj Clue gave me 'cause he and I are friends and, you know, he had his album out and he was doing a lot more production and stuff and it was just like the minute I heard the loop it's actually from a Stacy Lattisaw record, from like 1981 called "Attack Of The Name Game" and I usually know every old loop but this one, Clue really swung in at home with this one because this was... nobody was thinking about, you know, this loop and hmm, so I wrote the song on top of it and, hmm, err... we called Jay and he came and he did his rhyme like so quick, he didn't even write anything down just of the top of his head just like... came up with the the most with such a clever lyric in like 2 seconds and he's amazing so I was really really happy with the collaboration. And there's also a remix, I don't know if you've heard the remix, but the remix has Missy Elliot and Da Brat and it's to the loop of "Ain't No Fun" by Snoop and it's... really really like one of my favourite things I've done in a long time so we're gonna shoot the remix video for that soon.

    Nini sent me a cool article talking about the released of the Pavorotti and Friends concert CD...
    It's not every day that Mariah Carey, Ricky Martin, B.B. King, Joe Cocker and Gloria Estefan come together for a concert. But when opera star Luciano Pavarotti calls, pop stars tend to clear their schedule. On June 1, Pavarotti, Carey, Martin, King, Cocker, Estefan and others came together for the "Pavarotti & Friends" concert in Modena, Italy, to benefit the War Child organization, with artists performing songs on their own and with the Italian tenor. Of course, many fans of Carey, Martin, and the other performers from the star-studded bill couldn't get to Modena, Italy for the show. Happily for them, a CD from the concert, to be titled "Pavarotti & Friends for Guatemala and Kosovo," will be released on September 21. In an official statement touting the release of the CD, Carey says that she was pleased to take part in the event. "Pavarotti's a legend," Carey said. "His voice is one of the most incredible ever, so I was honored when he asked me to perform with him. Music has a universal voice and, as there are so many people in need, particularly now, it's an important time for artists to get together, not only to raise money but also awareness for great causes." War Child is a charity that raises funds to help children whose lives have been affected by war. For more on the War Child organization, check out their Web site at www.warchild.org.

    Mariah was in a New York newspaper called The Daily News. It had a nice picture of her and here is the article...
    "Mariah Carey's in a revealing mood these days, as evidenced by the crocheted outfit she wore at a dinner in Los Angeles last week. Mariah Carey knows how to work that body. She's just back from Capri, where she struck some bosomy poses for photgraphers at her hotel. "It's time for me to do something a bit risque," London's Mirror, which features some of the pics, quotes her as saying "Playboy may ask me to do something for them, but I'll tell you this...they'll have to offer a lot of money."

    Maria told me that you can check out the Junior Mixes Here I havn't checked them out yet due to lack of time!!

    Meski sent me an interview that Luis did in Spain recently. Here are the parts that he mentioned Mariah in...
    I want my album to show the way I'm feeling at the moment and, the album is called "Loving You Is A Pleasure" and I think that if you read between the lines you'll guess who I'm talking about (Everybody applauded)
    (Asked about his girlfriend) My girlfriend? That's what you said? Well the word "Girlfriend" doesn't exist for me, it sounds similar to marriage, children...
    I'm a lonely person, I like enjoying my privacy. At home, with my family...with my girlfriend (smiles)
    (Asked about a duet with Mariah saying that it would be a good combination) That IS a good combination.
    I don't mix the proffesional stuff with the personal stuff. I think that admiring someone that you love, maybe your family, your friend... youre girlfriend... it's really beautiful and I think that there's a mutual admiration between us, and that's very beautiful.

    9/13/99...
    Dear loyal readers,
    Due to some unfortunate circumstances with America Online (or as I like to call them: "Damn AOL"), Regina is unable to update this site or send out InfoMC. Hopefully, she'll be back soon. In the meantime, keep mailing her news (WildCatHG@aol.com) for when she finally returns. Also, rely on the other InfoMC presidents for your daily Mariah fix. Finally, don't forget to vote for "Heartbreaker" on MTV's TRL everyday.

    Thank you,
    Alex

    9/11/99 AOL has been down for me since yesterday and that is why I havn't updated this site. Sorry about that..here is todays news (thanks Alex!!)

    Adorible20 and several other people told me that Mariah is on the cover of the new Entertainment Weekly with the BSB on the cover also. It is a tiny article and here it is.... ariah is in a little picture on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. and this is what is says in it........ Mariah Carey-Rainbow In addition to the usual melisma-soaked balladry and smooth-as-chardonnay R&B, look for Miss Thang to work more pronounced hip hop moves into her latest. Puff Daddy and Missy Elliot gave Butterfly (1997) its rap cachet. Rainbow's coalition of groove merchants (including DJ Clue) and mad rappers (Jay-Z, Da Brat) carry Mariah closer still to rap's rhythm nation in her never-ending search for street cred. (Nov. 2)

    Mariah is also mentioned in the Jay-Z section of the articles about his new album and it says that she will be featured on it :) Here is the article... Mariah Carey, meanwhile, lends her powerful pipes to the track "The Things That You Do". "I put a do-rag on Mariah in the studio," Jay-Z laughs. "We thugged out-she got with the ghetto flavor."

    Make sure you pick up your new People Weekly for Mariah is in it several times..I think someone said 5!! Just don't read the text....

    I was listening to the radio today, Q102 was the station, and Mariah was one of the trivia questions. It was what Famous singer just bought a 5,000 square foot apartment and is going to turn it into a Beauty Parlor so she can get her hair, makeup, and nails done there? WOW is all I have to say. I knew it was Mariah cause he was saying how she don't like Heartbreaker, etc.

    Nini sent me the following info on MC...
    The Southern California Multiple Sclerosis Dinner of Champions raised more than $3 million at its annual event last night in Los Angeles. Chaired by Fox VP Tom Sherak, the event drew Steven Spielberg, Warren Beatty and Annette Bening, Jennifer Aniston, Penny Marshall, Bill Pullman and Jason Alexander. Jon Bon Jovi and Mariah Carey performed.

    This next info. is courtesy of Anderz Mariah was on the KDWB radiostation yesterday. She ended up being there for 1 hour and 15 minutes and here is what Anderz posted on his site about the chat!!
    Mariah said that she will not be "performing" at the Last Chance Summer Dance. Instead she will be filming the video for the song she did with 98 degrees and Joe. She didn't say that this was going to be the new single but since they're making a video for it chances are it is.
    She also is talking about the album cover. While in the studio Mariah and Tone E. Fly decided what should be the cover of the album. From what they said it's going to be a picture of Mariah on a bed and somewhere in the picture there is a heart shapped sucker. in the cover she is laying on a bed with a rainbow on the wall and she has shorts on but she loves the insert which was shot on location with the white house in the background with a rainbow. On the new album there is a song called Insomnia. She says the cd will be out on nov.2 and there are alot of song with jimmy jam and terry lewis.
    She was on the radio for on hour an 15 min. Almost constantly they played heartbreaker along with other songs requested by MC. She also said that the title Rainbow means multi-racial, multi-color and hoping there is a pot of gold for her in the new millenium. They also played the remix version of "Heartbreaker" and Mariah said there is going to be yet another video.

    Tommy Discusses the Breakup!!
    Yup you heard me right, he finnaly came clean on his side, well sort of anyway. It is from Los Angeles Times and courtesy of Mariah Online
    In his first extensive interview in several years, Mottola, 50, discussed the global consolidation of the music business, its impact on artist development and, for the first time, spoke about the breakup of his marriage to Sony superstar Mariah Carey.
    Q: Your breakup with Mariah Carey, one of the biggest stars on the Sony roster, got a huge amount of public attention. Have you gotten that behind you?
    A: Well, there was a lot of love and affection in the relationship and, as in anybody's personal life when there is a breakup, that can bring pain. Like all couples, we were a couple that made mistakes. It was tough. But right now, I'm really happy that she is doing well in her personal life--and similarly I'm doing well in my personal life.
    Q: Your marriage broke up just before the company was about to release a new Carey album. Most of your competitors thought Mariah inserted a character into the first music video that appeared to be making fun of you. How did you feel when you saw it?
    A: To be honest with you, I saw the video, and I didn't get it. . . . I think people love to create gossip and take shots. I don't think that there were similarities. I didn't have any problems with it.
    Q: Was it a problem running the company and being married to your biggest star?
    A: That became a little difficult sometimes because it didn't give us much of an opportunity to have a separate life from our business life. It would happen during the day, and then it would happen at night. So, in the respect that all couples have problems, that compounded it. There's no question. But I really believed in Mariah's talent right from the very beginning. I still believe in her talent. She has built an incredible career, and I'm really happy that I was a part of that.
    Q: How big a factor is luck in the success of a music company? Your competitors say Sony benefited greatly a few years ago from the "Titanic" soundtrack, an unexpected worldwide hit that ended up selling more than 30 million copies.
    A: It's funny. We had a record year that year, and all anybody ever talks about is "Titanic," "Titanic," "Titanic!" We had a bunch of hits, including a Celine Dion album that sold 30 million, plus hits from Will Smith, Savage Garden, Mariah Carey and Jamiroquai.

    MeLLa MT and SO MANY others e-mailed me yesterday about the new version of Heartbreaker hitting MTV's TRL. Well I ended up just catching the repeat of TRL last night at 8:30 pm. They cut off the very beg. and the very ending of the video so hopefully today they will play the video again. It was #9 and if you know the video inside and out you can easily tell that there are several new scenes. Jay-Z is in a bath tub while Mariah is standing behind him singing with this short blonde wig. I personnaly like the first version but hey I love 'em both!!! Check out MTV for yourself to see the new video!!

    Speaking of TRL, Sara typed out yesterdays requests and here they are!!
    hey carson! please play mariah carey's "heartbreaker" to remind me of the weekend I spent with my best buds. miss you frack, krystal, and ness! ERIN, KY

    MC9114ever sent me this next info. on MC. It's an article about MC and 98º duet!!
    Mariah to record collaboration with 98 Degrees
    (MariahCarey.org) - The current crop of teen artists are making sure their voices are heard, and the guys in 98 Degrees have found a great way to do just that. The group has announced that they will be appearing on Mariah Carey's hotly-anticipated new album "Rainbow." "Thank God I Found You," the track that will feature Mariah and the popular teen group, will be a part of Mariah's latest effort, due on Nov. 2. The song was produced by veteran hitmakers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. For more, visit http://www.mariahcarey.org/cgi-bin/news/news.pl

    Nini sent me some news from nydailynews.com...
    Mariah Carey and beau Luis Miguel canoodled over a three-hour candelit dinner at Le Colonial on Saturday night, drinking apple martinis and a bottle of white wine. At one point, bodyguards asked a nearby smoking couple to skedaddle to another table because Carey was bothered by the fumes."

    Meski from Spain told me that on Tuesday MC was mentioned on a Spanish gossip TV program named, "Gente."
    "...they talked about Luis Miguel's tour, they said that Mariah is goona appear in one of his concerts to sing with him, they didn't say which one (he's giving about 6 or 7 concerts). Well, that program is not a 100% reliable source but who knows... It may be just some kind of publicity for Mariah fans to go to Luis concerts... We'll have to wait and see...Just to remind you that Luis Miguel's album is out here in Spain next monday, the 13th, then we're gonna know if there's any duet with Mariah!
    Cool Beans..can't wait for the new Luis album to be released so we can hear the duet if someone adds it to the computer!!

    YuMmYuMz e-mailed me and told me that Mariah is in the new People En Espanol. There is a HUGE article on Luis Miguel, who is also on the cover, and there is a pic of the both of them in the magazine!!

    VirtuKitty e-mailed me and told me the following info on a show she saw...
    Today at 4:00pm ET on the Jenny Jones Show, the topic was about people having friends that look like famous people. A guy came on with his friend who thought she looked like Mariah Carey. They said her friends called her Mariah as a nickname. When the picture of the real Mariah came up on the screen, everyone started hooting and hollering, then the girl came out and she only had the slightest bit of resemblance. But I'll have to say, no, she didn't really look like MC and I would never have said that myself.
    That is like that Maury show a while back. The girl kind of looked like MC on that show though!!

    So Bad News for Mariah :( Josh was watching NBC last night and they showed the new issue of People Magazine with the Best and Worst dress list for this year and Mariah was on it for the Worst Dressed :( They showed a 1998 pic in the news program I was told so maybe People will hit the stands this Monday? Don't quote me on that!!

    Mariah's Official Site, www.mcarey.com, now has sound clips posted of Heartbreaker. The sound clips include the normal version with Jay-Z, Missy and DaBrat Remix, and the No Rap. Check it out for yourself if you want!!

    Mariah Poll Results!

I taped it, the whole 21 1/2 hrs..LOL. Nothing..just burned out my VCR rewinding..that's all!!! False Advertising is all I have to say!!

    Meski from Spain wrote this to me...
    I was watching a gossip TV program and they said that Luis Miguel has already arrived to Spain to give his first concert, they said that Mariah hadn't come with him byt that she might go to one of his concerts cuz she loves his music. They said that Mariah's new album is gonna include a duet with him.

    9/6/99 Well new week..Happy Labor Day!! Hee hee..Mariah was in fact on the Jerry Lewis Telethon this morning at 8 am about. It was during a promo for VH1 and they showed part of the video ISB during the Rock of Ages section..nothing much at all. I havn't checked my tape yet but I'll get back to you if they show her performing. Celion and others have already be shown in old performances!!

    You can check out a new site Lissa has made by clicking here

    This next info. is courtesy of Anderz Mariah was on MTV Europe yesterday with an interview on how she came up with the name "Rainbow" for the new album..
    "Rainbow actually came from.. I was in the.. I was going to the studio. And I was having like a kind of really bad day and lot of stress, and I saw a double rainbow when I got out of my car on the way inside. And I've never seen a double rainbow, it was like two rainbows on top of each other and I'm kind of a very superstitious person, and that's supposed to mean something really good."
    Aww how cool!!!

    This next cool news is from Nini!! Mariah is going to be performing at the 1999 Music of Black Origin (MOBO) on October 6th at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England. Will it be broadcast to the US?? Jay-Z and Mariah will both be there, SO MAYBE they will do "Heartbreaker." Man, wouldn't that be cool? Anyhow, here is the article...
    At the Launch Party on September 2 the nominations of this year's MOBO Awards were announced. Guests included The Honeyz, Another Level and top US producer Rodney Jerkins. Lauryn Hill is nominated for four awards and DJ Tim Westwood will be honored as best DJ. Live performers at the awards on October 6 include Lauryn Hill, Jennifer Lopez, Jay-Z, Mariah Carey, Destiny's Child and Phats and Smalls.

    9/5/99My wonderful friend, Anderz was kind enought to send me a link to the Official Bachelor site. If you want to check it out you can do so by Clicking Here Still Under Construstion however, but it is "Coming Soon!" :)

    No Jay-Z on Making the Video this morning..they had the old show and the old video..what's up with that? Anyone hear anything?!?

    Obsessive Luis Fan:
    I thought this was REALLY funny when I read this..Nini sent it to me!! I was just at Luismi's site. Some girl wrote that she wanted Luis to leave Mariah. She said to end the relationship cause she was waiting for him. She said she's 17 yrs old and hasn't stop crying since he's been with MC. That kinda sounds like she needs help, big time!!! Some guy told her to move on and get it together.

    Make sure you watch Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon TONIGHT. Here it is from 11 pm-6:30 pm. I don't know if Mariah is performing or just showing up on the show!! Make sure you tape it..I'll tell ya about it tomorrow!!

    Armando sent me the following information...
    "HeartBreaker" finally DEBUT in Asia by showing on MTV Taiwan's "MTV FRESH" on Saturday (4/9)!! All Asians especially Taiwanese, Malaysians & Singaporeans can catch the video on Monday's "MTV FRESH" at 7am or at 7pm!! The rest of the Asians no need to worry as MTV SEA will play it this coming Friday (10/9) on MTV FRESH!!!

    ButtterfIi sent me some cool info about MC. First of all she was on the Video Music Performance Clips singing Emotions in 91 (GREAT performance..loved it!!) and then I didn't see this but she did and wrote to me about it...
    ...They were also talking about problems they had with past shows and they said how last year when Whitney and Mariah wore the same dress they had problems with both dresses, especially Mariah's. First Whitney's dress came in all crumpled and they had to get some 19-year-old kid to steam it to get out all the wrinkles. Mariah's dress, however, came in with a police escort in a police car and the car got stuck in traffic so the dress wasn't getting there in time, and 10 minutes before they had to be onstage Mariah was still in her bathrobe waiting for the dress, so they had to call the police station to help them locate the car Mariah's dress was in, and escort the car through the traffic to the VMA's. Mariah was getting her dress zipped up as she was walking to the stage. I thought that was pretty funny, you would never know the way she seemed so calm onstage.
    Wow I didn't know that..did you?!?

    9/4/99 There will be no more different Quote of the Week pics everyday anymore. I don't have time to upload a pic everyday for the left of the quote. So I will be adding a New Quote of the Week pic and a New Pic of the Week once a week. Makes sence no??? Just so you know :)

    Hydrogirl2:
    On my radio station (103.3) Heartbreaker was on this thing called the new music shootout. They play two new songs and have people call in to see which one people like better. Mariah won every night for a whole week! She even beat out Whitney Houston's new one!
    I actually think that is pretty funny..LOL

    Tomas told me that MC is #7 on the Radio and Records National CHR/Rhythmic Charts!! That chart is based on airplay from across the country! Its her second week on the chart..last week she debuted at #21! All the way up to #7 now!!

    ButtterfIi told me that on MTV's Global Groove some new rapper just said that he wants to do a song with MARIAH CAREY and R. Kelly. The name wasn't caught but did anyone see it??

    DragnflyG e-mailed me and told me that she was just watching E! Celebrity Profiles and it said...
    Enjoy your labor day weekend with the hottest stars and they showed sharon stone, Madonna and Mariah carey.
    Anyone know when that is going to air this Monday???

    9/3/99 Make sure you vote for MC on TRL even though it is rumored that it is taped already. MCareyG said that she was a Close Call but I didn't get a chance to watch and see!!

    MeLLa MT told me that MC's video was # 9 on The Box! Joshie said she was #2 on Jams yesterday!! Cool Beans!

    Danielle wrote me and told me she heard that you get a sticker when you purchase Heartbreaker. It is like the one on www.mcarey.com where it is a red heart with Mariah written on it. Don't know if this is true!!

    Mariah is mentioned in the Observer. Here is the part of the article that mentions Mariah. Thanks to Nini for the article...
    The 65th Street house, which is on the south side of the street, was built in 1876. Recently renovated by its owners, the home’s interior is reported to be covered in marble; it has two separate entrances, a south garden and a wrought-iron gate in front. In June, singer Mariah Carey toured the house with a cadre of handlers but was turned off when, on the way out, she saw several rats run out of the trash bins, according to one real estate broker.

    MariahLov wrote me about the comment I wrote about the Sterling McFadden company's calender. He said that he always got what he ordered from them and they are realiable in his opinion. This is a good sign and hopefully I and everyone else who ordered one, will receive their calenders.

    Armando told me that at www.amazon.com you can order the Heartbreaker single!!

    Mariah Carey's new Heartbreaker Video featuring Jay-Z will air this Sunday at 8 am on MTV. Make sure you watch it :)

    Anderz told me that Mariah Carey will be attending the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon. I looked it up and found out it is going from 9 pm Sunday Night till 2 pm on Monday. Check your local listenings though to find out what channel..ClickTV.com is a good place to check...here is the article that mentions MC...
    This year's massive and diverse guest list includes Jason Alexander, Brandy, Mariah Carey, Carrot Top, Cher, Charo, Norm Crosby, Sheryl Crow, Celine Dion, Laura Dern, Brendan Fraser, the Goo Goo Dolls, Whitney Houston, Judge Judy, Lucy Lawless, Bill Maher, Marcel Marceau, Kevin Meaney, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Cathy Rigby, LeAnn Rimes, Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, Martin Short, Martha Stewart and Christopher Walken.

    Around the World is the 10th most popular video for the week!!

    Here is an article about the All That Glitters Soundtrack from Mariah Carey Archives
    Mariah was interviewed in August by the American magazine "Extra". During that interview she spoke of some of the colaborations she wanted for the movie she will star in, "All that glitters". Mariah wants to recreate the atmosphere in which she grew up. Among these people are: Janet, Prince, Cindy Lauper and... Madonna! Mariah said that she could speak of that because it was alredy arranged with Madonna, Wiliiam Orbit (Ray of light) and Patrick Leonard. It will be called "Angel of fire". It'a very strong ballad with the tecnho sound of Orbit, but I have not decided if it will make onto the soudtrack album because it's very personal. Only time will tell... Mariah said. A surprising duet.

    9/2/99 Sad news for us MC fans, Alan told me that this whole week of TRL is already taped so votes don't really matter that much this week :( However just keep voting, just in case. Click on the banner above :)

    Alan also told me that there will be NO cassette maxi for Heartbreaker but there will be everything else, like the 12" cd. Darn I wanted to get that for my car!!!

    "Everynight there is this contest type thing on my favorite radio station called the big nine at nine and mariah was #1 two nights in a row but then she dropped down to two by Britney Spears.i'll check tonight to see if she will be number1 again..."

    MeLLa MT and several others sent me this info. I actually also got the article from AOL, funny enough. But here is a little Mariah fact for the month of Sept...
    *** This month in Mariah Carey history
    Mariah Carey's single "Fantasy," which heavily sampled the Tom Tom Club's "Genius of Love," entered the U.S. charts at No. 1 on Sept. 30, 1995. Carey created chart history by being the first female artist to have a single debut at that level.

    Ron, from the Philippines, told me some great news on MC's Heartbreaker there. It moved from #4 to #3 at the Early Returns Countdown of 89.9 DWTM.
    It was the first week of Mariah on the countdown that features the ten hottest and most requested song of the day. She will surely make it on two soon. (The video has not yet been debuted in Asia!)
    Well hopefully the video will soon!!!

    Armando told me that Billboard shows that Mariah's Heartbreaker moves from #60 to #30 on their charts this week. WAHOO!!!

    CoolAJ97 told me that recently his friend went to Hawaii and Heartbreaker was played a lot there!!

    MCSwtheart has a new website and would like to visit it if you have a chance. All you have to do is click here

    9/1/99-Updated News.. Mariah was NOT on TRL today..how sad I was. Please vote for her. I IMed a lot of people today telling them to vote and was very sad when people responded by saying they don't have the time to vote :( It takes 5 minutes and it gets non-MC fans to see the new video and like it :) Please try and vote everyday!! I got my best friend to vote and he doesn't even like MC..LOL. He does it for me..so sweet!! So vote for her tomorrow!! I am on my knees begging..well not really!

    My good MC friend, Nini, and also member of the month for InfoMC told me that there is an article in TV Novelas for the August 30th issue and that MC is on the cover with Luis. Is this the same one that had the four pics cause I was told that was the august 10th issue?? I am so confused..anyhow here is the article translated...
    Luis and Mariah get cozy in New York.
    Luis Miguel and Mariah Carey turned the big apple on fire while showing off their love everywhere. The happy couple were in New York recently. The entire time they seemed super cozy. They didn't seem to mind the paparazzi taking pictures of them. "Luismi doesn't seem to mind that people seeing him with his girlfriend." An employee at the Four Seasons said. "They were in one of the most exclusive rooms." "They treated everyone well and gave great tips." On one of their days out the couple went in front of the hotel to wait for their limo. It was here where a New York photographer took advantage of capturing the encounter. "They were outside the hotel for a while. It looked like they were celebrating in their room and went out to continue the party." This is what the photographer said. "When they entered the limo, the chofer told me to close the door. I put my foot on the door, so it wouldn't close. While all of this was going on, the chofer took off. I kept the door open so I would be able to take the pictures. Logically, I waited for them to kick me out. On the contrary, Luis and Mariah were so into themselves that they didn't even notice or care that I was there." Luismi and Mariah have been seen in the past from time to time in New York. It's been said that the singer has recently decided to look for a new apartment with (Luismi) the idol of Mexico.

    Larry wrote me a letter about what happened yesterday for him and some friends..read his story...
    Well, Yesterday, me and my friends were at a party and we were dancin and hoping that they played Heartbreaker 'cause it is our fav song! So , one of my friends were flippin the stations on the radio and all of a sudden I heard "It's a Shame.." (ya know how the rest goes) so just about all 15 of us paused and listened and it was the Heartbreaker remix! After we were all done screamin 'cause we were so happy we started dancin'. I have to say that it is the best song ever, and with it being a remix it was even better. Sorry to say since we were just flippin the channels i didn't catch the station, but later that night we we flippin stations again and a commercial for Heartbreaker came on. Everyone was screamin so i didn't get to catch everything it said but all I know was that itplayed the remix in the background and it said something like ... "Mariah Carey's New Song Heartbreaker - to be realeased on September 21st" and that was it. Could this possibly mean there will be a TV commercial too? I hope! Thanx Bye!!
    Yeah there will probably be commercials about Heartbreaker starting soon :) That would be cool!!

    BabyT828 sent me come GREAT news..Tiffany was searching Barnes and Nobles and found out that there is going to be a new book released in November by a write named Sam Wellman. It's $16.95 for the hard cover :) You can order your copy now by going Here Also you can order other older books by MC and you ca even order a calender!!

    Speaking of calenders, I got some bad news...I posted some news about a new calender featured in Right On Magazine by a company named STERLING/MACFADDEN. Well I sent out my $15.99 on Monday for their calender and VirtuKitty e-mailed me last night with this message..
    STERLING/MACFADDEN, BEWARE! You should not be completely advertising them. I ordered a poster from them and they sent it, but then I ordered another poster in November of 1996 and they never sent it, then I sent money ordering another one a few months letter with a letter inquiring about the first one and asking if they'd please send the first one or at least send my money back. They did neither. I've never heard from them.
    **GASP** So I'll let you know if I get my calender from them in about 4 weeks. I am a little scared now but I did send a check. NOONE send cash, cause then you probably won't get it at all. I would even hold off until I get back to you about mine cause I don't want to be responsible for anyone else getting ripped off. I am shocked that Right On would promote this company if they are ripp offs??

    Ron from the Philippines e-mailed me this...
    HEARTBREAKER of Mariah Carey slowly moves to number 4 of the Early Returns Countdown of Magic 89.9. The countdown is an everyday charts which ranks the most requested song for the day. Hopefully, it will get higher on the coming days.

    There's a new poll up and please vote on it. However here is last weeks results...
    Do you think Rainbow is a good album title for Mariah's latest work?
    Yes (131)-79%
    No (34)-21%
    I voted for yes cause I seriously think it is a good title. I think it would be cool if she had like one cover Blue, one Green, one Red, etc for all the colors of the Rainbow :) I would probably buy them all..LOL.
