Re: Vocabulary (100,723) (100,725) by Stacey from USA

Terna started a topic about Mariah's speaking vocabulary, nothing about her songwriting. Nothing. It kinda then morphed into her needing assistance to walk and all that. It was lighthearted fun. You brought the drama to a funny moment between fans here.

No one here would ever dare mock MC's writing abilities because they are unmatched. She is in a league of her own. "Looking In" is my life's theme song. CTTA among so many lyrics she's written have helped me through some difficult moments. It's why I'm still a fan after nearly 30 years.

Honestly if some of us bother you so much, look up the word ignore and follow that definition. You'll be much happier. Carey on.

You're talking nonsense and confusing me with Terna. I never said anything negative about her conversational vocabulary, nor her songwriting.

Yup, and not one of those comments "stayed on topic" as you told me to to do whilst ine was closer to. Most of it were ad hominem attacks (again, as always), whereas mine brought it back to the topic - vocab. You (and Stacey) always fall back on "longtime fans", but I'm not sure that "hahaha, maybe she has MS" and the like is a good way of showing it. Just one gal's opinion, though, I guess you think since you bought a cassette tape in the 90s that it gives you liberty to attack, attack, attack daily on a fan site.

Also let me spell it out for you - your point, to the extent you stayed on topic, was that her vocab is bad because she occasionally uses phrases you don't like. My point was simply, obviously her vocab is great because in addition to whatever phrases she uses when not working, she writes incredibly. Your [sic] saying you never said she wasn't a good writer is inapposite, I said she was and is, and it shows how strong her vocab is.

Also you and others used your thread to shoot her down on nonsensical and ad hominem attacks, per usual. You do you, I guess.

Checkmate. Bill wins. Never mess with her longtime fans. You'll always lose.

Wow. I guess that's why there is no mention of any credit information inside the CD. Why would MC deceive us like that? Sounds like a song title. Lol. I need to stop going through my MC collection and get out of town for a trip.

Yep, and not one of those comments downplayed her songwriting, as you insinuated was the case.

It's a studio version with a fake audience added to make it seem live.

I have the Through The Rain 3-track CD with a live version of Bringin' On The Heartbreak. Does anyone know where this live version was recorded? The video for this gem was a live version too.

Because without them and the splashers her "dizzy diva" persona wouldn't work.

Talk to them. They'll come out. Given the nature of these emails, they tend to be in the closet.

She is 173 cm tall, with the heels she is 183 cm, she needs to be tall. Do you want her to tip toe her around town, no, she loves those heels.

Every legend singer, I mean every legend, has at least one song that's just horrible. Crapfinity is Mariah's down in flames song.

"The topic was about her conversational vocabulary, not her songwriting." - Bill

Some recent replies in the same thread, having nothing to do with her vocab:

"I'm like, why use those heels at all? She claims to be tall. Show us."

"I saw some people asking on social platforms if MC has some sort of a walking disability."

"It could be true. She may have a debilitating illness like MS, arthritis, Parkinson's etc. but just hasn't announced it publicly. Would answer a lot of questions."

"Gosh, I suffer from anxiety and I walk on my own all day, everyday. Maybe I should share my secret for walking all by my awesome self with Mariah's people"

"Lol. But Stacey I see people being escorted down stairs all the time and say to myself 'there goes another anxious person', do you not see this every day occurrence where you live? Lol. This is a new one I'll have to add to my collection of excuses for the future." - Bill

I'm sure this is all just positive love of longtime fans, who happen to stay on topic.

The topic was about her conversational vocabulary, not her songwriting. We're all in agreement she is an incredibly gifted and talented songwriter which an unerring sense of melody, harmony, and resonating lyrics.

Of course Crapfinity is the exception to that rule.

No argument here. I've always admired and stood up to others the fact that MC writes her own songs. When she puts her name on a record, you know she was involved in every aspect of that particular project. She just didn't show up, sing the song, and leave. Terna started this topic and I don't believe he would ever question her songwriting vocabulary. I know I sure won't. Many of us are just lightheartedly talking about words she uses in her everyday talk that drive us crazy, lol. It ain't that deep. Carey on.

Given her induction into the song writers HOF and 19 #1s, I think her vocabulary is just fine but I know I'm in the minority on this message board.

This song is a masterpiece. All the available remixes are masterpieces. MC put this out during the night of EDM mania, and was just too slow for radio at that moment in time. But if she released it during another moment in time it would have been a larger hit. It was also unfortunate that those Paparazzi photos of her filming the video hit the web, and it broke the illusion of what the official video was showing us. That bathing suit wasn't it. But again, this song is a masterpiece and MC at her best, original and remixes.

I think many of Mariah's House Mixes she did in the 90's are way closer to BMS. Meteorite is a great disco track, just like I'm That Chick, YDKWTD, etc. I'd be absolutely down for Mariah to explore a good House/Dancehall album ah La Drake's Honestly Nevermind album and the direction we can assume Bey's new album is gonna take. She sounded amazing on the Unforgettable remix which was lean hard into a dancehall vibe

I saw some people asking on social platforms if MC has some sort of a walking disability. I get the "diva thing", but she has overdone it and makes her unrelatable to ordinary people. Imagine how powerful the moment would have been if she walked in like a queen that she is, unaided. The commotion, bodies around her and all the help takes away from her.

There's a trial on a new walker for celebrities, it's called "The Butt Walker". It's something similar to what Michael Jackson used for his "Smooth Criminal Tilt" trick.
