Island Def Jam (IDJ) is getting into the artist fan club business, kicking off
the initiative with a new Internet-based club on behalf of Mariah Carey. Carey and
the IDJ record label are teaming on the official Mariah Carey fan club, a joint
venture called Honey B. Fly.
Starting yesterday, fans could sign up for the service through mariahcareyfanclub.com.
A subscription costs $35 per year in the United States and $45 per year internationally.
Fan club members get access to presale concert tickets for Carey's upcoming tour, as
well as music and video exclusives.
They also get an introductory letter from Carey welcoming members to the club, an
8x10 autographed photo, a T-shirt available only to club members, and a membership
card that can be used in conjunction with special retail and concert events.
IDJ vice president of new media Larry Mattera says that the Honey B. Fly venture is
the first of a half-dozen artist fan clubs the label plans to launch in the coming year.
Fueling that interest is the opportunity for secondary revenue streams. IDJ and the
artists in question will share the money generated through club ventures. Until recently,
clubs were operated by the artists.
Driving the artists' interest in partnering with IDJ on clubs is support in the effort
to stay connected with fans. "Honey B. Fly is really a way for me to have personal contact
and involvement with my fans worldwide," Carey said in a statement.

I also think that if these low quality phone videos sound so good, one can only imagine how great she must sound live and recorded in professional rec... read more (Wednesday 29 July 2015; 9:58)
To Mr Andrew, as I get alittle blood on my hands (55,522)
by Amber C from USA
Let me break it down for you. Vegas is simply a swipe of Mr. Packers credit card, it means nothing. Lol. Let me break that down again. Vegas is nothing more than damage control for all the havoc that was caused last year. It is not meant to prove anything about Mariah the singer, or artist. For heaven's sake she's performing the same flipping songs... read more (Wednesday 29 July 2015; 7:08)
To Mandy Monroe on Mr Packer (55,521)
by Amber C from USA
When I read what you said my mouth dropped to floor. i want to insert a gag emoji so bad lol. Monroe looks like the Packer? Good heavens. Lol, but on the bright side Mariah looks comfortable and she doesn't seem to be pretending to be oh so hot like she did with Nick, if I'm to be completely honest. Also I may be getting used to him but James is ki... read more (Wednesday 29 July 2015; 6:45)
