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."

Without a doubt, Help Me Make It Through the Night is my favourite cover of Mariah's. Now, I'll probably be tracked down and killed for what I'm about to say, but I really like Katy Perry's video. Infact, it would be awesome to see Mariah do something as playful in her next video.

I've never seen Mariah in concert so I was wondering if someone who's seen her could help me out. Does she do autographs after or before the concert? Is it mostly hits and a few new songs or the opposite way? Does she interact with the fans on stage sometimes?

My most favourite MC song is actually a cover, The Beautiful Ones, it may not actually be her song, but she sure made it her own, I find it more easier to listen to than the original. My second favourite cover is I still Believe (Pure Imagination), ugh it's gorgeous and mellow.
