She will survive
Though Sunday night's Divas 2000: A Tribute To Diana Ross concert at the Theater at Madison
Square Garden in New York was indeed a tribute to the supremest of the Supremes, for Diana
Ross herself it was nothin' but a house party. The show featured some of the most talented
and well-known divas in the world: Mariah Carey, Donna Summer, Destiny's Child, Faith Hill,
Ru Paul and, of course, Diana Ross. Through it all, however, Ross was able to give the
proceedings an intimate, down-home feel.|
Mariah Carey, who was in fine voice (and fine form) despite a very recent bout with food
poisoning, opened the evening with a version of Ross' solo hit "Love Hangover," which morphed
into Carey's own "Heartbreaker" and included bits of disco classics "Doctor Love" and "Love
To Love You, Baby." In a perilously short silver dress, Carey looked like she could give
Tina Turner a run for her money in the "she's got legs and she knows how to use 'em"
department. And she's got a future in disco, too, should she ever feel like taking a break
from the hip-hop beats. Carey's got both the pipes and the attitude to pull off dance music
Mariah Carey, who came across more as a sweet and sexy homegirl than a fierce ruling diva,
reminisced about seeing Ross at her now-legendary 1983 Central Park concert. Carey was just
a girl then and recalled how Ross valiantly tried to keep the show rolling despite a downpour
of Noah's Ark proportions. The image of Ross trying to defy Mother Nature herself stuck with
Carey: The diva would not be dismissed.
Finally, in the ultimate diva duet, Ross was joined by Carey for "Baby Love" and "Stop! In
The Name Of Love," trademark hand gestures intact. For this vocal summit, they both wore
versions of the perilously short dress in which Carey opened the evening - and they both
The entire "diva-licious" crew, as Carey put it, returned for the grand finale: Ross' signature
tune, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough."

If there aren't official statements from either Mariah or Nick, the media can miss me with these stories. I wish these vague articles that constantly say "a source" were banned. I want facts or nothing.

From the first listen of MIAMTEC, I knew that there was trouble in paradise. Unfortunately/fortunately (depending how you look at it), Mariah's songwriting gives us a direct insight into her world. I suspect it's incredibly difficult to write songs such as Camouflage if you're not actually going through what the song is about. The first time I hear... read more

I'm sick and tired of these news articles that fills out what celebrities are thinking. I love how the titles are labeled this and that but no one has said anything. Nick is not around Mariah because he works all the time. Right now with America's Got Talent. He is there. So these articles about Mariah is not a wife but a mother is crazy.
