Yeah Todd, Mimi started the Divas chapter with Aretha, her tip top fave as she noted. Let her have her fan girl moment, it happened, those are her thoughts and it certainly doesn't make her racist as some people posted. That's absurd IMO.

Bill, my last thing on this and probably the last word from Celine and that night. Here is Celine talking about that moment and singing with the queen. That's probably how she and Mimi would talk about it together if they were reminiscing.

I know it well, the testimony part of the song. The event and the finale was legendary and it's cool Mariah told her perspective. I just posted Carole King and Randy Jackson talking about the moment. I don't even think Mimi was dissing Celine, although I was. She just gave her take on it. Aretha is very important to Mariah and she has said that many times, which is why the stories about their moments are important to her and in her memoir. All the divas know and love Aretha, but they know she will be a little shady about her "queendom". Gladys Knight, Patti, loves her, but know that about her and have stories about her on video. I think Mimi was praising Aretha more than trying to diss Celine. She didn't even say her name. Lol.

Here's a fun retelling of that moment (pro Celine) from Carole King and Randy Jackson.

Lol I had to go back and re read the couple of paragraphs on Divas Live. Mimi is obviously an Aretha fan and has just as much of a right to her opinion on that performance, as anyone else. It certainly tracks with the great old NY Times review of that event. And we've discussed divas live many times on this board and many agree that Celine sounded like a wounded cat trying to sing along with Aretha, but you know opinions we've all got them. But whatever her opinion, it isn't a lie, it just doesn't match yours and apparently a few others.

Mariah maintained a close relationship with the nephews because Pat had custody of them. Interviews exist of Allison complaining about them taking Michael. Pat probably raised Shawn and since Mimi bought her a house she had access to the older boys. It seems Mimi tried to have a relationship with the mom but after years of disappointment, she let go, at least she vows to always take care of her. I'm glad she didn't waste her book on the many pieces of crap like clown, why open herself up to their virulent verbal abuse again?

Mariah is brilliant here. She so clearly articulates her memoir's emphasis on race. I'm so happy she got that off her chest.

I'm just getting time to crack it open this weekend. I wasn't expecting much on self reflection, but I'm pissed she was so stingy on the picture sharing. Not even a good selection of Dem Babies. Pics. She could've at least given us some good new shots, or old exclusive never before seen shots of herself. The old personal family photos are nice I guess. With respect to the racial stuff, Michaela said in some article that Mimi had strong feelings about it and insisted that they be put in the book. I will likely breeze through this text by Sunday.

Check out the LA Times review that Michaels Angela Davis RT'd. It gives it high marks Burnett seems fair in mentioning it's shortcomings. She doesn't talk about her bipolar stuff, or lot of the things people have been salivating to know and supposedly takes no blame in anything, lol. I'm glad she was honest about her mom, I always wondered where she was while her kids were falling apart.

This might make for an interesting lawsuit. Nick doesn't seem to care about his business in the pursuit of knowledge as he frames it though, but what a hill the leave his hat on, I will say. He should be allowed to have controversial guests on, but not wise in the short term. I can't wait to hear the dialog this weekend with Professor Carr and Karen Hunter on her podcast.

I didn't say she created the word, but that she's happy it made it into Webster's and that was a joke. But I was typing too fast and had far too many typos, some of my own creation like fuve vs. five and some the fault of autocorrect, like bastard ass got changed to masters class. I won't even try to unscramble the entanglement joke, but maybe Bill got it.

You're still trying to make it be fuve? LMAO. What about all her "entangulations"? She's mad because Jada used a version of her self created word before her memoir was released. I bet Mimi is proud that irregardless got it's masters was into Webster's dictionary this year.

The title (94,546) by RibbonB from USA
(Friday 10 July 2020; 19:27)
It is not great, but it's not that bad. I would've liked a one word title, but hey it's her book. Her co writer does give me a little more confort and confidence in the contents. The issue with the title may lay in the unfortunate coincidence in the forthcoming documentary called The Meaning of Hitler, based on the decades old biography by the same name. But I don't think people will care, her memoir is already a bestselling memoir on Amazon based on pre-sales.

We're off that tired topic. I'm tryna discuss 8:46 and you want to re heat old tea, that's not tea, because Mimi makes murky her own waters with reality show revisions and Stellar's staged situations. Now that's why Caution flopped, that's tea.
