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.

The power of media (51,245) by Jono from USA

Whether or not Mariah and Brett are together (I highly doubt they are), I'm certain it is to slowly drum up publicity about Mariah's new projects. With social media highly accessible nowadays, celebrity gossip spreads like wildfire. Hollywood and music agents have picked up on this, and will actually set up high profile people to hang out, creating... read more

Christmas movie and Idina Menzel (51,244) by Ethan from United States

I have a guts feeling that the reference that Mariah tagged Idina is perhaps that she might be involved in the new Christmas movie, which will be directed by Ratner inspired from Mariah's music. Mariah loves Christmas and with the momentum of Frozen, this movie might do very well. In addition, this is the first time Mariah has written a Christmas s... read more
