Getting on Mariah's case too much

I know a lot of readers think I get on Mariah Carey's case too much. I will always say she is a fabulous singer. But what goes on with her and Columbia Records is laughable, really. Next week, "Thank God I Found You" drops from number 4 to number 13 after spending a week at number 1 and a week at number 2. This single will drop off the charts faster than Gloria Estefan's "Music of the Heart."
I'm sorry, but this is because Sony manipulated the record to number 1 to keep Mariah's "record" intact. "Thank God" was never a number one record. Just tune into a Top 40 station and you will not hear it very often, whereas most of the real hits - by Celine Dion, Smash Mouth, etc. - are played nonstop. Pop music fans know a hit - it's a song that's played so often on the radio that you want to start screaming already. "Thank God" is not in that category.
I think the business of deep discounting and artificially boosting singles is a real disservice to artists like Mariah who are talented but have no way of gauging how their records are really selling.

Nick / divorce (46,291) by lamb from USA

I don't have anything personal against Nick. Mariah was happy with him in the beginning and together they brought two beautiful kids into the world. But I don't think he has been very good for her image (at all really since they met) and I support her decision to divorce him, if that's what she needs to do.

May and Abraham (46,290) by Shelly from United States

Thanks May, I hope you're right. I think you are. I was having a typical emotional upset. I like what you guys wrote about Mariah's lyrics, they are like poetry. Thanks, Abraham, I like your list too. I hadn't heard some of the songs you listed but I looked them up and they were very Mariah. I especially liked Love Is On The Way. When I first heard... read more

Um / Nick and his tattoo / the divorce (46,288) by Edward from USA

Um, thanks to the laser technology, Nick will eventually get his tattoo removed. It seems to be Mariah just got tired of being lonely with Nick taking every gig he could when they actually didn't need the money like that. I don't think the comments he made were the cause of the divorce, but other bigger things. Some people are saying he was talking... read more
