The whistle or the complete voice? (102,679) by Edward from USA
(Monday 8 May 2023; 01:33)
I wasn't impressed at all, but since it would be more the same, I won't elaborate. She needs an expensive no nonsense vocal coach.

She's definitely looking great. I didn't see Tanaka anywhere, so it might be true they broke up.

Dear Randy, you're definitely right. She could get an Oscar as a producer or as a song writer. There can be miracles when you work hard and you believe.

She'll eventually be inducted, Randy, just be patient. As for an EGOT, well, she could definitely get an EGT. Even if her fairy godmother turned her into a great actress, I doubt she would ever get an Oscar. It's OK though, she doesn't need it.

I've always pictured 90's Mariah playing Sandy on a Grease remake.

AI Mariah Carey songs (102,635) by Edward from USA
(Thursday 27 April 2023; 18:52)
I asked AI to write song as Mariah Carey would write it, and here's what it came up with.

Verse 1:
I never thought that love could be so real,
But then you walked into my life, and now I feel,
A passion deep inside my soul,
A flame that burns beyond control.

Chorus:
Cause you're the one that I need,
You're the air that I breathe,
And I can't imagine living without you,
Cause you're my forever love,
And I thank the stars above,
For bringing me to you, my love.

Verse 2:
With every breath I take, I feel your love,
It's like a melody, that's sung from up above,
And every time I look into your eyes,
I'm lost in a world, where love never dies.

Chorus:
Cause you're the one that I need,
You're the air that I breathe,
And I can't imagine living without you,
Cause you're my forever love,
And I thank the stars above,
For bringing me to you, my love.

Bridge:
And in this world, that's so full of pain,
You are the sunshine, that breaks through the rain,
And I'll never let you go, my heart's in your hands,
Cause baby, you're the one that I need, the only one that understands.

Chorus:
Cause you're the one that I need,
You're the air that I breathe,
And I can't imagine living without you,
Cause you're my forever love,
And I thank the stars above,
For bringing me to you, my love.

Outro:
Cause baby, you're my forever love,
And I'll thank the stars above,
For giving me you, my love.

What is your initial fan story? (102,626) by Edward from USA
(Monday 24 April 2023; 23:36)
I was in Kindergarten when Ms. Nuñez played "Open Arms" for us. I stood there open-mouthed, like flabbergasted. A year later I got emancipated and made my mother buy me the Daydream album.

Maybe an EP or a Maxi Single? (102,604) by Edward from USA
(Friday 21 April 2023; 21:49)
I disagree. Marian has had a dwindling fanbase for a long time now. Disappearing for huge periods of time at this stage in her career isn't doing her any service. When I say "disappearing", I mean going many years without releasing any new music.

Remember that record labels as we knew them don't exist anymore. Recording an album might be more expensive than the revenue they would get from it, especially from a legacy artist like Mariah. I think she should go independent at this point.

Things are not as difficult as they used to be. Technology has made it possible to have so many tools at our disposal, we can create great music and videos without having to drain our pockets dry. There are movies filmed with cellphones that you would believe were filmed with the best equipment. Physical CD's are almost a thing of past, so Mariah can go independent, release her music online, and bundled her albums with the price of concert tickets like many artists do nowadays. What she doesn't realize is that with people having the attention span of a goldfish, disappearing for long periods of time without any new music to keep her hardcore fan base entertained is not good. Why no release The Rarities 2 and then a new album next year?

No new album in 2023 (102,594) by Edward from USA
(Thursday 20 April 2023; 18:22)
How dare you? Mariah is at home breastfeeding, bonding with her little twins and frolicking with Tanaka. She can release her next project in 2026 when the twins are ready to enter kindergarden. Believe me when I tell you that we, her three remaining fans, will be here waiting. I'll purchase two copies.

New Mariah titles (one word) (102,564) by Edward from USA
(Sunday 16 April 2023; 14:10)
Since you seem to be a baby lamb, let me enlighten you with some basic knowledge, there's nobody white on Mariah Carey paternal side.

Mariah's Carey paternal grandmother was Addie Carey. Addie was born in Winston Salem, North Carolina to an Alabama-born mother Emma Cutright and a North Carolina-born father Will Cole. She was a dark skinned woman of African-American descent. According to an interview with Mariah, Addie had a sister called Sarah Cole Reese ("Nana Reese") who was a Pentecostal Minister. She was called over to the family home when Mariah was 4 years old after an incident occurred involving Mariah's family.

On 16 August 1928, Addie married Robert Carey (formerly Roberto Nuñez) in Manhattan, New York City. A year later she gave birth to a son, Alfred Roy Carey, Mariah's father. In 1930 she is listed on the census as living on St Nicholas Avenue, Manhattan N.Y.C with Alfred and Robert.

When Alfred was a young boy, Addie and Robert got a divorce. Alfred was subsequently raised by his mother Addie in both Harlem and the Bronx.

However, Robert Carey ended up remarrying a woman referred to by Mariah as her step-grandmother "Nana Ruby". They had two or more daughters together. Alfred therefore has two or more half sisters through his father. Mariah only got to meet her paternal grandfather Robert when she was roughly around the age of 6 as her father was raised almost exclusively by his mother Addie. As of the mid-late 2000s, Mariah's step grandmother was still alive.

It was mentioned from an interview in the early 90's that on the odd occasion, Mariah would accompany her grandmother Addie to a Pentecostal Church when she was a young girl. She was described by Mariah as "statuesque" and "beautiful", but also "blunt" as she had a tendency to be "really rough at times".

According to various interviews with Mariah throughout the 2000's, Addie made a small fortune working in Real Estate. She was known to be a very spiritual person. According to Mariah's second cousin Lavinia, Addie had a charm bracelet which included a mustard seed charm.

If you would like a picture of Ms. Addie Carey, I can provide that too.

Actually her grandfather's last name was Nuñez. He changed it to "Carey" when he came to America to be more accepted. He and both his parents were Venezuelan too. Marian's grandmother was African American. Technically her real name would be Mariah Nuñez.

At this point she can have as many splashes as she wants. I don't think after the next project we'll be hearing anything new from her for another five years. I've noticed one thing though, the longer she waits in between albums, the less she sells. Fans can wait, but if they feel neglected, eventually they will jump ship. Taking a 2 or 3-year break is Ok since she'll always be defrosted for Christmas, but after a while we need at least an EP. I hope whatever she's been cooking for five years is worth the wait.

"Splashes of Love" would be a great album title. From Bill's list, I would go with "Cosmetic Surgeries" though.

I agree with you, that's what it feels like. Some great songs, but that's it. Hopefully we get some of those unused tracks on The Rarities 2.

An employee at Walmart was responsible for the title leak, but I doubt it was the reason Mariah scrapped everything. At the time it was about to be released, she was still in a relationship with Nick. When their relationship started going down south is when TAOLG didn't make sense to her anymore.

"The Art of Letting Go" was the name of the album, but then it morphed into MIAMTEC. The original concept was scrapped, she recorded new songs, discarded others and TAOLG was relegated to a bonus track. According to Nick, the original "The Art of Letting Go" was classic Mariah, with powerful ballads, he described it as Mariah going back to her roots, but that never happened.

Music Box (102,506) by Edward from USA
(Friday 7 April 2023; 20:43)
Music Box is what I call a perfectly balanced album, 10 tracks, no waste. Even Everything Fades Away is brilliant. As I stated, MIAM have some great songs and vocal moments, but the sound is mostly dated and depressing. I hide all the knives and any pointy objects when I rarely listen to it. And let's not talk about how Marian perfectly captured Children of the Corn in Super Creepy and how she sung One More Try high on helium. Tracks I still listen too are: Dedicated (those whistles are some of her best), #Beautiful, Make It Look Good (best track), You Don't Know What to Do and Meteorite.

I can assure you we all here supported her by buying the album, but put your feet on the ground and realize that MIAM didn't connect with the general public. The constant pushbacks, the messy rollout, fans are not to blame. Yes, there were some great songs and vocal moments, but the album is depressing and overproduced. I bought one for me and gifted one, I bought the singles and remixes, but I have rarely listened to the album since its release. While Caution didn't have any vocal moments, it's far superior, in my humble opinion. If you don't grow with your fans, you lose them. Her remaining fans can make much difference at this point, don't put that on us. We've been here patiently waiting for five effing years for new music, we've been supporting any hyped-up half-cooked new songs she puts out every now and then. I know she has to breastfeed the little twins, but come on. We need another Caution but with some vocal moments and more tracks.
