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."

Marissa and Abraham, I completely agree. What she wore on Jamaica was like something she hurriedly got second-handed at the Salvation Army, horrible. She was so classy and nice on Ellen, he hair was beautiful, her outfit was great. Jamaica's weather is tropical, so she had a great opportunity at wearing nice outfits. I'm starting to believe that sh... read more

Her vocals though were good though I must admit. It's just the whole package needs major work. The outfits, stage presence, background dancers, For a veteran like Mariah, she sure does use a church fashion show budget. Oh Mimi, please you still got time. Hire the best person to help with your residency. Hire a big time designer to design costumes, ... read more
