"I'm almost incapable of talking about it"
Mariah Carey is still struggling to find the words to aptly express her sentiments on Whitney
Houston's death. "I'm almost incapable to talking about this still, I think we all are," she
told Robin Roberts on "Good Morning America" Tuesday. "It's very heavy emotionally."|
The diva, 41, explained that their careers, which both found meteoric rises in the '90s, may
have been neck-and-neck, but the pair's friendship was something that went beyond the music
charts. "I don't think people could ever really understand our relationship," she said. "There
was always this supposed rivalry in the beginning and then we did the duet and became friends.
I saw her towards the end. I loved her. We all loved her and we were all inspired by her."
Carey and Houston famously recorded the hit "When You Believe" together in 1998. The singer
joined a number of other A-list celebrities - including Oprah Winfrey, Kevin Costner and
Alicia Keys - last week for Houston's funeral services in New Jersey. "It was such a class
act the way she went out and the way her family dealt with it," she said of the "home-going"
services. "It was beautiful."
Carey also addressed the health crisis that has been surrounding her own immediate family,
with husband Nick Cannon's series of recent hospitalizations. In early January, Cannon, 31,
was treated for kidney failure while the couple was spending family time with their 9-month-old
twins in Aspen, Colo. He was recently back in the hospital again for two blood clots found in
his lungs and an enlarged verticle on the right side of his heart.
"We didn't know how big a deal it was at that moment," she said of Cannon's health scare. "It
was a gradual thing. We ended up in a couple hospitals this year already." But Carey has no
doubts that Cannon will bounce back just fine. "The thing is, he's a young healthy person,"
she said. "It's about changing the lifestyle and just an awareness of what can really happen
to you no matter how young or in great shape you are. I think, like he always does, he's going
to turn something that happened into a positive thing."

What a great idea you've had. Do you imagine the guests performing their favourite Mariah songs, and her sitting back in the front row taking it all in, or Mariah being on stage with them? Either way I think it sounds brilliant and I'd love for something like that to happen to honour her and her trail blazing career.

Mariah needs to write with Miguel, Salaam Remi, Nathan "Happy" Perez and Frank Ocean. Those songwriters and producers are at the top of their game and would update Mariah's sound without sounding desperate. She should also work with David Morales, Bruno Mars and his songwriting and producing team, and Calvin Harris. If she worked with these musicia... read more

Mariah looked stunning in her cardigan and matching ensemble. She looked happy and confident. She also looked beautiful in the studio pic that JD posted on Twitter. Her eyes have that spark that's been missing since the beginning of the E=MC2 era. I think she's regained her confidence and she's ready to come back with a vengeance. Looking forward t... read more
