Mariah plays hard to get
Mariah Carey is taking her time to decide which label to sign up to in a bid to ensure she
gets the best deal possible. The songbird received nearly $30 million just to walk away
from her last label, EMI Group's Virgin Records.|
Carey's spokeswoman says, "There are three or four big labels aggressively pursuing her.
Mariah's a smart business woman and is taking her time before she makes any decisions."
The American star is now talking with Vivendi Universal's Island Def Jam, AOL Time Warner's
Elektra Entertainment Group and J Records, run by music legend Clive Davis. Music industry
sources say Carey has also talked with Warner Brothers Records, another label under the AOL
Time Warner umbrella.
Carey, who has had more number one songs than anybody except for Elvis Presley and the Beatles,
had a falling out with EMI after her album and movie, both titled Glitter, fared poorly. The
artist, who is set to star in the upcoming film Wisegirls with Mira Sorvino, also suffered a
breakdown from nervous exhaustion in the past year.
Universal Music chairman and chief executive officer Doug Morris says, "We are trying to sign
her. I'm not sure who'll get it, but we have a very good chance."

I can't watch MC like that. I just can't. This is what I have been telling you guys all along. MC is stuck with her old fans, her old self, and her old discography. She needs new fans, new songs. Singing older songs forces her voice to a level where it isn't anymore. And she should avoid the big open air stage. It never suited her voice, even durin... read more

||Mariah is over... for the 100th time (40,136)
by Matthew from USA|
The thing I have learned with Mariah is this: never count her out. I can't tell you guys how many times I've done just that. She always disappoints me, and then I give up. And then I say it's over. Her voice is gone. And then of course, she pulls some amazing performance out of the bag and then she has me back again. It's like a roller coaster. So ... read more
