IDJ teams with Mariah Carey for fan club

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.

In fact, as "deep" and poetic as she was back then, a lot of her material was also derided for being too schmaltzy and platitudinal. It wasn't until Daydream onwards that she really started exploring different ways to write. So to me, I see it as her having grown enough to write ... read more

ktktkt, enwar00 and Mariah Carey showing off at the 3rd Beacon Christmas concert (48,653) by Baby from Sweden

Yes, Mariah is that chick that actually sounds better than when she hatched 12 long years ago. Not to quote myself but: Mariah's in great vocal shape and always has been. Pull out them crickets and act like you hear because at this point you have to actively want her to fail you refuse to acknowledge that fact. Don't be mad at us lambs that your bu... read more

Lawsuit (48,652) by Darryle from Sagamihara, Japan

There's something fishy about that lawsuit against Mariah. If you weren't getting paid for your work you would have noticed it within the first month or two. Yet this lady continued to work for Mariah for 7 whole years now deciding to come forward. I think they, her and Mariah, had a falling out and now she's out to get revenge. Whatever the case m... read more
