Mariah Carey inks new deal

Mariah Carey has signed a deal with Island Def Jam Music Group. Universal Music Group Chairman/CEO Doug Morris who labeled Mariah as "an international treasure" made the official announcement yesterday. Mariah told Hits Daily Double, "I'm incredibly happy. It's a tremendous and unprecedented opportunity to be working in tandem with Doug, Lyor and Jimmy [Iovine], and to have the benefit of their powerful international forces, led by Jorgen Larsen. They have collectively helped redefine pop music and I am excited to be part of their family."
Mariah was previously signed to EMI/Virgin and was dumped by the record company walking away with A$120 million. Mariah went to EMI/Virgin from Sony Music/Columbia, where her records have cumulatively sold over 100 million units worldwide, making her the best-selling female performer of all time. Expect new material from Mariah in the New Year.

My friend Mariah (50,534) by Shelly from United States

Obviously we know she isn't our friend in real life. I think a little part of me believes (fantasizes) she checks in here every once in a while to hear from the peanut gallery.
