Top 25 People Worthy of a Millennium Toast
It was a big article so i cut it down to the MC related part. =o)
***

According to the survey results, the "Top 5" Americans worthy of a toast to love are: #1 Julia Roberts; #2 Rosie O'Donnell, #3 Tom Cruise, #4 Barry White, and #5 Susan Lucci.

Among women surveyed, talk show diva Rosie O'Donnell came in slightly ahead of Julia Roberts. Interestingly, nearly twice as many men than women surveyed would raise a toast to love to crooner Barry White. Popular daytime television soap opera star Susan Lucci is especially favored as a symbol of love among younger adults surveyed (18-24 years old).

Right behind the "Top 5" toast-worthy for love, according to the survey, are Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow, and sensational singer Ricky Martin. Other lovable Americans cited include: film heartthrob Brad Pitt, who recently tied the knot with actress Jennifer Aniston; favorite leading man Tom Hanks; and widely popular singer Mariah Carey.

Contigo en la Distancia

Mssfijunke was kind enough to let me know more about 'Contigo en la Distancia'. Thankz!!!
***

Hey I read the thing about "Contigo en la Distancia" And I want to let you know that Luis Miguel is not the only one to sing that song! And if he was he'd have to be 130 years old or so. Because this song is a classic old-school 'bolero,' a type of love song style that was created over 100 years ago. It was A guy named Rudy who presented the song to christina to possibly sing on her spanish album "Mi Reflejo." (It was not Christina thinking Luis Miguel sang it than she should too!) And She did instantly fell in love with the song and the people of the record company were hesitant for her to sing such a classic song, but when they heard her sing it accapella And the tears started rolling down their eyes they knew that she should definitly cover this song. All this info is said and confirmed on christina's offical site :) So there you go looks like Christina And Luis have covered a real beautiful old classic song! Jen

Ps. I wasn't trying to be negative but I just wanted to let you guys know that :)

pps. I have posted in the mariah section of the messageboard a post that has 5 out of the 6 new spanish songs translated into english so look for that:)

Interesting Snippet! =o)
Ok. If you are against anything that isn't TOTALLY related to mariah, then don't look. It's just somewhat related to Mariah, but more related to Luis M.
****
BTW, a big thanks to Annie for sending this in!

HI!! This news is indirectly related to Mariah, but I'm sure a lot of people will be interested, as well as Anderz since he's a Christina fan too. Christina's new album "Mi Reflejo" has a cover of a Luis Miguel song, "Contigo En La Distancia". She performed it live at the Latin Grammys and let's just say, her version is fantastico! So I guess Christina is both a fan of Mariah and Luis!! :)

Rainbow Playing In Stores

Hillary writes saying:

Hey Everyone!!!!! I just wanted to say that while I was in a local Foot Locker, I heard Mariah playing. It was the Heartbreaker Remix w/ Brat and Missy! I was so excited, but that's not all ... the Vulnerability Interlude came on and the rest of the CD!! I could not believe it. Of course I stayed in the store till the CD was through! I even asked the guy if he liked MC; he said she was OK, but really put it on cause he didn't want to hear anything else that was there. I am also very happy about Luis Miguel winning the 3 Latin Grammy's!!! I hope that MC and Luis will have time to celebrate. :) By the way, for those of you who were able to see the Latin Grammy's -- Doesn't Shikira (sp?) look very much like Mariah??!?! And guess who was sitting in front of her Tommy Mottola!

Always lovin' Mariah...
Hillary *still very happy about hearing MC!*

On the website www.like.com it has interviews with artist, asking questions like who is your major influence and other trinkets. Anyway if you go to their search menu and type in Mariah Carey you can read the interviews of artists who love Mariah like Angela Via (who says Mariah is a big influence on her musically) .

On Musicbox: "I loved every single song on the album. She has her own unique sound and you can hear that coming out of her on that album."

Melissa (who says Mariah is a big influence on her musically) from the new girl group Dream

On Rainbow: "She has an incredible voice and she is my inspiration."

Jason Perry (who says Mariah is a big influence on him musically) from the new christian group Plus One

On Mariah Carey :"I like a lot of big vocals."

Naturi Naughton (who says Mariah is a big influence on her musically) from the new girl group 3LW (3 Little Women)

On Butterfly: "That album was really fierce and different."

There are also countless other who either say she inspires them, or her album was the last they bought, or that they want to spend the night with her! It's a great site and it's good to see that a new rash of artist are inspired by our lamb, Mariah.

AAO TV Special

NYC writes me:
***
The AAO Tv special was on ITV at about 07.50 am THIS morning and not tomorrow as their website advertised. Basically, it was only about 10 minutes long and showed interviews with Mariah and Westlife in Capri, and various clips of the video. Mariah said she particularly like Mark from Westlife because he gave her a card with a Jack Russell on the front and some Irish Whiskey! After the special was shown, the TV host confirmed the single was out on Monday. Can't wait. I also saw the TV ad for AAO again today. It ends showing the front cover of the single and some outtakews from the video.

Story from Lani

She was going to Toronto so I gave her an address where I thought Mariah would stay and she tells me this:
***
hey Lamb!! i can't get on the board now for some strange reason but i wanted to tell ya about my toronto adventure ;) unfortunately, i didn't get to see mariah. BUT the address you gave me was completely real, my mom and I walked there! The addy is the production office for ATG, and it was closed when we got there cuz it was a Sunday. There was a sign on the door that said "All That Glitters" and i was freaking out and taking lots o pictures of all the signs on the door lol (like it said extras should go around to the other side of the building to Studio 2) So we walked around there (there were tons of trucks like surrounding the building) so when we got to the other part of the building there were doors (locked) but since they were glass i saw in through em and it was all the costumes for the movie!!!! (the sign said ATG costume room, got a pic of that too! lol) oh and i also got a pic of signs that said "reserved parking for ATG" there were these guys hanging around the building but my mother said they were probably working on the other movie and we were scared to ask em about mariah cuz we really werent supposed to be there, we just walked right in past the (empty) security booth into the parking lot, and I still wanted to go back to try the office door again. i was really upset cuz if i had gone on friday (like my loser brother was supposed to take me then but he backed out) then i would have been able to get more info and maybe found mariah. but i decided to stick my letter for mariah under the office door, that way maybe someone there would see it and give it to her. I couldnt leave the lamb i had for her there cuz my mother said someone would take off with it ;) also, its a good thing i didnt cuz it poured rain later on in the day. i just hope my letter didnt get soaked, it was halfway under the door ;) afterwards my mom said we should try the hotel where mariah was but of course i didnt know it!! it seems kind of weird to me that she would be in a hotel for the whole time shes in toronto, if shes been there since July you would think she would wanna settle down in a real home or something! okay, i gtg get me some sleep, im exhausted from the whole trip aqnd i got tons o homework to make up!! thank you so much for the addy though, otherwise i would have done nothing!! mwaaa mwaa mwaaa ;)

MILLION DOLLAR MARIAH

This is from Sayah and dotmusic.com:
Mariah Carey has insured her body for $10 million while filming her debut movie All That Glitters.

The superstar singer decided to insure herself when she realised an on-set accident could seriously damage her career.

Naturally the cast and crew of the film, which includes Melanie B's lover Max Beesley, have nicknamed her 'ten-million-dollar-babe'.

"She's got a brilliant sense of humour and is a great sport," chortled an insider. "She loves her new nickname and thinks it's funny. She is telling anyone who listens that she's the ten-million-dollar babe."

Tabloid story

Scott and JJ sent an article from the biggest tabloid in the UK, so y'all don't have to believe all of it =)
***
In "The Sun", UK's main tacky tabloid, has a Mariah story as its main showbiz "exclusive". I don't have a scanner so i'll type out the article. seeing as though its Mariah.

(headline) Mariah: I have Been Homeless for 2 Years (EXCLUSIVE)

Megastar Mariah Carey has revealed that she has been homeless for 2 yrs. the sultry diva, the worlds most successful recording artist, has been living out of suitcases since splitting with her husband tommy mottola. The longest she has stayed in the same place is 1 month. Millionairess Mariah says she has had to put all of her possessions into storage since moving out of her marital home, a 25million cinderella style castle in upstate New York. The singer, speaking to me during a break in filming her debut movie "All That Glitters" said, "I haven't had a home since I left there, but hey, I' m glad. I've not been in 1 place this long since I started out. I certainly don't feel homesick. I'm from Manhattan but my stuff is in stoarge all over the place. I have had to live out of many suitcases". When Mariah did try to find a home she ran into problems. Her bid to buy Barabra Steisand's New York apartment for 5million failed when the snooty resident's committee banned her because she wasn't "quite right". Mariah whose new single with Westlife - a version of Phil Collins' eighties hit AAO-is out this month, is filming in Toronto. Co-star is Max Beesley, Mel B's new boyfriend.

When I interviewed Mariah last year, she spoke about how depressed she was after splitting from Tommy, boss of her record company Sony.

Now she says her movie- about a singer who overcomes a troubled childhood to find fame- has helped her start again.

Mariah laughed, "At times in this film I have to be an emotional wreck. To play that kind of role you need to have been through a lot. I have been through a lot in my regular life, so i'm used to it".

And she joked, "It's good I have this outlet to release my feelings - otherwise I'd have to live with a therapist". ///
The article was by Dominic Mohan, who is a very annoying columnist, but he was actually nice about Mariah and usually he is nasty about everyone but Oasis.

Some various news

Great news!
***
Police have made two major raids on CD counterfeiting operations in Manhattan. The busts, announced last week, were conducted with the help of the anti-piracy unit of the Recording Industry Association of America and resulted in 15 felony arrests and the seizure of nearly 60,000 allegedly illegally copied recordings. The first raid, carried out on a bootleg CD distribution center at West 27th Street on Aug. 30, produced 11 arrests and the seizure of 35,238 counterfeit CD-Rs, or recordable CDs, including titles from such artists as Whitney Houston, Ricky Martin and Mariah Carey. The second bust, conducted on Aug. 31, turned up 24,150 CDs in a commercial building on lower Broadway. Police made four arrests at the scene.

Mariah needs a lot of freaking nominations for doing the things she does best. We have at least a fighting chance with that VH1 fan choice awards - to get MC some recognition.

Maybe something for Mariah?

This is from Calgary Sun and it mentions Mariah:
Jamie Foxx can't seem to find someone to share his star.

Foxx has been signed to replace Will Smith in the latest remake of A Star is Born. This fourth incarnation of Star was originally a vehicle for Whitney Houston, but the the diva has departed the project.

"The movie's still very much a go, but Whitney is gone. That's no longer a rumour," says Foxx.

"I've heard the producers have been talking to Lauryn Hill. I'd love to work with her. She is such a fantastic singer.

"There's also been talk about Mariah Carey and Aaliyah."

Judy Garland, Janet Gaynor and Barbra Streisand played the female lead in the previous versions.

"This new version is going to be much sexier and darker. It has a real hip-hop sensibility."

Foxx says he looked to entertainers such as Bobby Brown and Ike Turner for the inspiration for his character, a self-destructive singer.

"There's definitely a bit of Bobby Brown and Ike in my interpretation of this guy. He's not necessarily abusive to everyone around him, but abusive to himself. But he can also see talent in another person and knows how develop it."

Oliver Stone, who directed Foxx in Any Given Sunday, may direct this new A Star is Born.

Why do a fourth version of the same movie though?

About those grammies.

I think many of you, including me, are a bit confused how that works so here are the essential facts from Ryan:
***
Hey Anderz, I noticed there has been talk on your site about Mariah being nominated for a Grammy this year. Some of the info given was kinda misleading. First off, all material eligable must have been RELEASED after October 1st of 1999 and before September 30th, 2000. Then there is a certain process. I thought I'd fill Mariah fans in on how that works.

First off, the Record labels must submit material that they think is Grammy worthy. The officials may decide to choose material not submitted however, but apparently that is rare.

Second, experts in specific fields review the submitted material whether it be Jazz, Pop, R&b or rap (or whatever). This section is just to make sure all material submitted is eligable.

Thirdly, ballots are then sent out with all the eligable recordings to voting officials. NOTE! Officials are only allowed to vote in categories of their expertise (eg. Someone who specifies in Jazz, cannot vote for BEST FEMALE POP VOCAL PERFORMANCE). However, they all vote for the 4 general awards (SONG and RECORD OF THE YEAR, ALBUM OF THE YEAR and BEST NEW ARTIST).

Once those votes are tallied, a second round of ballots is sent out and the votes are VERY VERY secretly tallied. Winners are not announced until the night of the awards. In this round of voting the officials may vote for the 4 general awards and 8 of 27 other fields.

I hope this is a bit of help, but it does narrow down Mariahs chances for gettig nominations. Personally, I think Mariah's best best for a nod is BEST R&B SONG, and BEST FEMALE R&B VOCALS for CRYBABY.

For more info regarding this process, see http://www.grammy.com
***

So now you know! It's up to Mariah's label (Tommy?) to submit Mariahs songs for nominations! I don't know if I feel good about that =/

About those breasts.

I get questions about this in mail all the time (it's true!) so I thought I would take a conversation I just found at the messageboard of Reginas WildCatHG site. Don't continue reading this if you are a sensitive person.

MIKEY writes:MARIAH'S BREASTS
honestly you guys, i believe mariah did get breast implants. i love her to death and everything like that, but mariah's boobs changed dramatically from the butterfly video to the heartbreaker video. in the butterfly video (also the "my all video) her boobs look so small and they look like big momma jommas in the heartbreaker video. even if you lose weight the boobs will also shrink, so mariah can deny it all she wants, but i as well as most of the world will always believe that she did get them done. don't get me wrong, i really love mariah. and i don't think theres nothing wrong with implants, i just don't get why people don't admit that they got implants when it's soooo obvious.

ANDERZ replies: Because Mariah said she didn't, easy as that.

STACY replies: Uuuuuhh...I don't know if you're a guy
but I'm assuming you are so I'm gonna fill you in a little on weight gain/loss and breasts. It's hard for a lot of women to lose weight in their breasts after a big gain. In fact, I think it's pretty common. The only way I know to tell you about it is to get a little graphic. Take for example my two sisters: Both used to be small A cups (the smallest common bra after the "training bra") and now, after having babies, they are C's. One of them even lost most of her weight and her boobs never went back to A. And I have also had a weight gain and loss and my boobs stayed bigger than they were before I packed on the pounds. Just because you lose weight doesn't mean it'll inherently make a difference in your new bra size. For some women it will and for others it won't. I'm not commenting on the supposed boob job either way...just clearing up that little bit o' confusion for you.

LEXI replies: MC and implants? That's a "fantasy"!

After the premiere of 1999's "Heartbreaker" video, many critics speculated or even insisted that Ms. Carey indulged in breast enlargement surgery. This, despite the dresses with plunging necklines and their swelling servings of skin, is not the case.Mariah asserts, "I'm exactly the way I was born."
But, you don't believe her, right? What about all the bosom that you see swelling and spilling out of those fancy dresses at awards shows and scanty outfits in magazine pictures (like the Rolling Stone image to the left) ? Well, if you examine the images above (if you thought she had a boob job at all, that means you were already looking anyway ), you can see that this illusion is created by a good, old-fashioned push up bra. The only difference in her cleavage between these pictures is created by the position of her arms. And then there's the videos, right? Another part of the illusion is the camera. In the "Heartbreaker" video as well as the "Crybaby" and "CTTA" video, they often have MC's motions slowed down. This brings attention to the motion of her breasts and makes you believe that they are bigger than ever due to the fact that you never noticed them before. Granted, in the "Heartbreaker" video, she does not appear to be wearing a bra (when she was in the pink..when she was wearing red,as Bianca, she obviously had some Wonder Bra power going on). But consider this, in the "Fantasy" video, her breasts looked really large,too, yet nobody thought she had implants.

***
CD #1
1)MC feat. W.Life AAO 2)Pound Boys main mix
3)AAO MC only
4)Enhanced cd: W.Life interview

CD #2
1)AAO Feat W.Life
2)AAO W.Life only
3)Pound Boys dub mix
4)Enhance cd:aao remix video.

Especially the video will be cool to have on single! NYC tells me more UK news:
UK fans can also look forward to seeing Mariah everyday next week on ITV's GMTV (breakfast TV). I saw an ad stating that the worlds best selling female and the UK's best selling boyband are featured in a TV special to be shown all next week. It also showed a clip of Mariah talking, looking delicious as always.

Also, the Making Of The Video for AAO is now being shown on MTV UK, although I haven't yet seen it myself. And Mariah is still No.3 on MTV Select!
