Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, old rivals in the pop music world, are racing to finish
albums and release them this year. Carey looks like she'll be the winner. According to my
sources, she's nearing the end of recording for a CD to follow up her mega-selling
"Emancipation of Mimi". Island/DefJam has set a November 20 release date.
Carey has been recording all over the world, including on her beloved Isle of Capri, where
she was recently photographed cavorting on designer Roberto Cavalli's yacht. In fact,
she's been working her ample posterior off, and has as many as eight finished tracks in
the can, sources tell me. "She's working with all different producers and writers," a
source said. "And she sounds great."
Meanwhile, Houston is said to have two completed tracks finished and is getting ready for
a third. Her album still has no name or release date, but all systems continue to be "go"
according to insiders. The big news about Whitney is that she may be ready to quit living
in Los Angeles, where she's been for more than a year while kicking drugs and starting her
The talk now is that this fall, Houston will resume living in Atlanta, the place where
she had many painful experiences during her turbulent marriage to Bobby Brown.

Lack of movement (55,567)
by Mimi L. from
Mariah was never a dancer but what made up for the lack of dancing was that she used to run on stage and move around a lot so one could really feel the emotions she was trying to portray through the song (example Grammy 2005, one out of many). I agree that nowadays sometimes she is very careful. With the exception of the Jamaican concert (where she... read more (Friday 31 July 2015; 11:09)
Lee TS / that face, no flaw (55,566)
by this_is_qhm from the Philippines
Well that could be a possibility. I mean with all her resources it would be absurd for her to neglect her physical appearance. But aside from possible skin procedures and skincare regimen, let's not forget that aging is also dependent on lifestyle (methods of relaxation and dealing with stress) and of course, genetics. She's gorgeous at any size, t... read more (Friday 31 July 2015; 10:59)
