It's not a full week het though, so why would they be salty? Perhaps their [sic] just honoring the exclusivity. Anywho.

I thought it was very cute. Mariah's dress was cute, but way too short. I wish they at least had matching colors. All three sounded great, but auto tuned or something. I thought their hip sway dance moves were cool, but all the jumping around going on around them mostly distracting. Overall, it was a solid performance.

Would've been trash. Whitney's voice was thrashed in 2010, Celine sounds like a boiling cat and Mimi would've done her pregnant best though.

Exclusive means its limited to Apple. Perhaps that's how Apple wants it.

Of course, because he's a messy little pest. Of course, he has defamed Mariah many times over via tabloids and [YouTube] videos. He's broke, but determined. I wonder how Allison's suit against the mom is going. What yucky siblings. That opinion is based on their own doings, not anything said in the memoir. Since Morgan lurks on this message board, allegedly.

It's funny how people will say she lied, just because her interpretation [of] the same event didn't totally match theirs. But he actually confirms what she said, that Motorola [sic] put a knife to her face at a dinner party. Corey and Walter are jerks IMO. Both should've stayed out of her business and neither should expect friendship or loyalty from her as neither of them gave that to her.

True, very Mariah formulaic. She did look pretty and fresh throughout the video though.

Monroe looks adorable with her mother's long, gangly legs. But those clothes aren't cute. Is the brand popular beyond the Bey hive? I do love the brand's merch rollouts though. This last one including "Rolling Ray" was hilarious. Beyonce trolling her fans is cute. I'm sure she made his life.

That doesn't sound diminishing really, but then I didn't read his words. She created the melody and wrote all the lyrics. Seems like she did the main work. Sounds like he just translated it to music with his ability to play. Hopefully he just stops whining.

The Oddities (96,502) by RibbonB from USA
(Monday 2 November 2020; 18:26)
In connection with Halloween and the recent release of The Rarities, I've thought of a few oddities, it more like obsessions that Mimi seems to have. The obvious is the posing and the left side of the face thing. Others include:
1. Marilyn Monroe. I get buying the piano, but naming your baby after her might be much, although I love the name.
2. Tupac. She loves to tell that dry story about their eyes meeting as he's driving away. He already dated Madge and was just toying with Mimi, lol. I guess I get why she bought the photo of him naked in the bath.
3. Her dad's car. Cute vintage auto, but strange to use it in that terrible Beautiful video with midget Miguel propped up in it. It's nice that she has it for a prop for Rocky to play in, I suppose.
4. Relating your so called "soul mate" to your mother, who you now reveal you have deep issue with. She clearly said she knew Nick was her soul mate because he made her feel safe and always festive, cheering up the bleak moments. This from interviews in 2008. Maybe some delayed memories.
5. Last but not least, why did she mention industry illuminati on page 157? Lol for the conspiracy nerd in me.

Here you are back from the depths. I said that's the last time we saw her with her mom, looking happy in 2013. Didn't you accuse me of being her mom and someone accused you of being Morgan? The book makes it clear that she blames and despises her mom for what happened during that incident. The book is the first time Mariah let on for all the world to know, that she has deep problems with her mom.

The mother (96,461) by RibbonB from USA
(Thursday 29 October 2020; 19:17)
Relationships with mothers are complicated for many of us and even more so, it seems for Mariah. Mimi has kept secrets and probably tried to accept, fix or leave things for many years. She has probably shown degrees of each of those stages over her career. I believe that she was very much at the trying to fix things stage with her mom during her marriage to Nick and surely having grandkids for her mom probably brought her joy and maybe fear and trepidation. I clearly recall her saying Nick reminded her of her mom. At the time she described as, nurturing, caring calming. That was a strange correlation even then and boy did that change. Her mom was pictured at a lot of her family moments during that phase, including the making of MC2Y. Clearly something snapped, changed and triggered [The art of letting go]. Because around 2013, was the last time Mimi was seen happy with her mom, celebrating her mom's birthday. Also it was nearing the end of her marriage. Maybe the mom sided with Nick on some crucial family issue, or Nick sided with the mom. Somethings clearly happened to trigger a huge shift in Mimi and the relationships around her. Most we will never know about. It's good that ultimately she and Nick decided to remain family and civil for their kids.

She doesn't have to share all the deep dark stuff with her health, mental state. The breakdown stuff with her siblings and mom was a lot and felt horrific enough to share in one book. So I can see her trying with her mom, but then deciding that her own self and wellbeing were more important than her relationship with her birth family.

Aww, so sentimental. . don't care about Mark or Binaka, they both got or get paid well. But she could've just cropped Mark out of the picture if not going to name him. She's a savage, sassy, bougie, ratchet.

He may, or may not, but what he is, is an employee. She knows how to string along, until she is done. She's great at "both sides of the neck" when she wants to be.

Binaka is fully tied into all the Stella drama, lies, stunts. She just keeps him on payroll because she needs company, can't be alone. When she wants another place filler, she will just treat him like the employee that he is, with no further mention. Did you notice the one picture of Rae Rae, where she referred to her as her assistant or something? Mark Sudak was also in that picture and she never mentioned his name. Everybody conveniently forgets him. He went from photographer to "work boyfriend", finally getting co exec producer credit on Emancipation and E=MC2, I believe. She paid dearly for his silence. IMO.

You do know tastes, attitudes or mindsets can change over time. I love some songs or even artists now, that I didn't appreciate when I was younger, or for various other reasons. I even hated Hero years ago, but enjoy listening to it occasionally now. Sure Mimi ommitted lots of stuff, there's only so many pages, but I think she was truthful about all that she said, she is careful and rightly so after all the attacks, lawsuits etc, that she has been hit with in her life and career. From recent Stella settlement, to her assistant lawsuit which is still pending, to her own lawsuit of James for wasting her time, or ruining her stunt. That "error" is a book unto itself.
