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.

B, the feud was not "fake" what so ever. The grudge is real. Mariah continuously threw shade to Nicki even after Idol. Nicki even slammed Mariah on Twitter. Yes the leaked video of them was definitely "orchestrated" but the two truly did not get long on or off cam. Jesus would have loved if Mariah and Nicki forgave each other, motivated and pushed ... read more (Friday 3 July 2015; 15:57)

Put the pipe down. Mariah is being tempted by the devil because she had a fake producer orchestrated feud with a rapper and Nick possibly cheated on her? She didn't shade Arianna but she didn't praise her either. She simply said if this is the path she choose I wish her longevity or something like that. J.Lo deserved the shade, she isn't some idiot... read more (Friday 3 July 2015; 15:14)
Move on (55,056)

Mariah tripped down a couple of stairs and then corrected herself. It's not that deep. Quit looking for reasons to turn James into some evil man just because you don't think Mariah should date him. (Friday 3 July 2015; 13:26)
