The-Dream turned Carey duet fantasy into reality

R&B singer/songwriter The-dream hatched a cunning plan to snag Mariah Carey for his song My Love - by spreading news of the duet before he'd even approached the superstar. The-Dream - the lyricist behind Rihanna's smash hit single Umbrella - reveals he penned the lyrics of the track with the Heartbreaker singer in mind, but had no idea whether Carey or her Island Def Jam label boss Antonio "L.A." Reid would approve the duet.
So the star began to name-check Carey in his interviews and talk about the joint project - and that prompted Reid to get in touch and help turn the hitmaker's dreams into a reality. He tells XXL magazine, "I wrote that record and immediately thought, this is a great record for me and Mariah, if she wants to do it. The next morning I had an interview, and I'm like, 'Yeah, I got Mariah on this record called My Love' - knowing damn well I hadn't even asked her to get on it. L.A. (Reid) was like, 'What the hell is he talking about?' But they called M.C. (Carey), and she got the record and was like, 'I f**kin' love it.' I'm like, 'My hunch was right, I just spoke it into existence.' "

I thought she'd be in great shape by now too since it's less than one ... read more

Truth hurts / looks (51,267) by Giselle from USA

I happen to agree with Marcel about her looks. Mariah looks bad now. We don't have that long until the first show. We should be seeing her in the best shape like most singers do when they start to do shows. Not to mention she's more comfortable and confident when she looks her best. Another thing I'm a little tired of is the diva act. First off I h... read more

Marcel (51,266) by B from USA

Mariah has always had flaxen hair, listen to Sunflowers. She's biracial and vacationing in the tropics. Her skin looks flawless to me.
