The name Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey quickly perk
up anyone's attention. Why shouldn't they? They are
the two biggest music sensations since the funky pop
man Michael Jackson. Of course Whitney and Mariah are
women as Michael is a man (or is he?), but contrary to
what rumors go around, Whitney and Mariah completely
dominate the music of today. Whether it's Mandy Moore
or Stevie Wonder, Britney Spears or Aretha Franklin, all
have one thing in common... the two divas of the
ninetees influenced them somewhat.
During the late eightees and early ninetees, Whitney
Houston was the good pop girl. So sweet and so sincere
until she got hitched by Mr. Bad Boy himself, Bobby
Brown. Whitney told Bobby "Don't Be Cruel" but Bobby
didn't listen and admitted Mrs. Houston to the
"Heartbreak Hotel". There are many rumors Whitney has
followed Bobby's influence, but rumors or not we still
love to crank up the ol' cds and listen to Whitney
belt out "The Greatest Love Of All".
Miss Carey on the other hand, was in for a bad marriage
also. She left the "Heartbreaker" after she was fed up
with his controlling behavior. Since the divorce, Miss
Carey is showing the public what Tommy used to gain,
and none of the men seem to argue with it. Women have
little rumors and whispers when she comes on TV. They
call her names and such, but Mariah tells them off when
the first words from her lips are "They can say
anything they want to say..."
No matter how many people argue about Whitney's
"supposed" drug addiction or Mariah's skimpy
image, there's no argument over the talent these two
women contain. Jealousy or pure hatred towards them, we
all remember at least one time when a song of theirs
warmed our hearts and that's what makes them two
singers that will be remembered.

Hearing Mariah performing TGIFY was the highlight of the show for me. I'm just glad that I went because it was amazing. And I was there the night the Infinity video was filmed. (Wednesday 29 July 2015; 15:28)

That performance of TGIFY is the best Mimi performance of 2015 yet, hands down. Even Jimmy Kimmel can't beat that. She hit like a ton of 5th octave belts with such clarity and resonance the Eb5s were amazing. Thanks for sharing the video. (Wednesday 29 July 2015; 14:07)

Good Lord baby seriously? It's like you're on a quest to gather enough evidence to imprison Mariah. She lips a few songs. The horror. Lets lock her up for fraud. Everybody has a right to post their thoughts and opinions but that post of yours just took the cake. (Wednesday 29 July 2015; 13:36)
