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."

But coming here and saying she treats you like trash and all sorts of name-calling, just because she don't deliver to your demands as a fan, then you really need to re-evaluate your life. I'm one who is critical of... read more

Edward (42,824) by Eternal from Italy

I get your point, Edward. She's Mariah Carey, she has someone to attend to every single aspect of her life, she hires and fires nannies in the blink of en eye, she's worth 500 million bucks and she doesn't even need to really sing live any more to continue rolling in those dollars. Could this be why she has lost interest in it all? She usually slim... read more

Thank you Randy (42,823) by Manny from U.S.

Thank you Randy, you made good points. I feel similar to you in the sense that I've loved Mariah since I was a teen. I am 35 years now. I follow her career but not as when I was 11. I used to have all the time in the world. I have to think about my reality (rent, bills, student loans, family). Mariah has her family and kids to care. She is 44, not ... read more
