Madonna is definitely out of touch with reality. She should have some respect for herself, her family and her legacy. I've always given her props for staying fit and giving her all in her concerts, but she's definitely in denial. You can be a woman or a man of a certain age and still have some class. As for Sam Smith, as much as I like his first two albums, he's turned into a clown. It is simply disgusting. This gender idiology crap has permeated into everything, it's ridiculous.

Robert, it's evident you're drooling over Andrew. You had already professed your love for Bill. You probably made him take down his pic here and now this. cybercheating is not cool.

I also think she looks fine in that red dress. Thank God she didn't go for a Little Red Riding Hood outfit.

Sorry, but no. E=MC2 is fine. It's weird and confusing referring to E=MC2 as Einstein.

Questions for JD (103,755) by Edward from USA
(Sunday 15 October 2023; 02:35)
I thought she would consider surgery at this point, but it's evident the sycophants are running rampant in her circle. They're probably telling her that she sounds fabulous. If the Qatar performance is an indication of what's to come on the Christmas shows, I'm really sad. Hopefully she was having a bad day.

I think the theme album she referred to last year has already been recorded, so that eventually will be released. She'll also release "Someone's Ugly Daughter", "The Rarities 2" and "Daydream 30". After that, she should officially retire.

Questions for JD (103,744) by Edward from USA

When Mariah listens to her managers, things usually go right but when she's too involved, all hell tend to break loose. I fell sorry for JD, it's a good thing he walked away and preserved their friendship. As Nick once said: "Mariah will always do Mariah." Other than Benny Medina who checked her, took control and had a successful run with her, the rest that followed weren't really managing her, since she was doing whatever the f she wanted. JD said it in an interview about his plans for MIAM but Mariah was reluctant to follow through. When shit hit the fan, the crazy lambs crucified him. And guess who wasn't there at the cross to comfort him, give him water and clean his wounds? Exactly, Virgin Mariah wasn't. Had Mariah not listened to JD when he told her to sing full voice for TEOM, that album would've been another whisper album like Charmbracelet.

What is wrong with Mariah? (103,738) by Edward from USA
(Friday 13 October 2023; 21:32)
I agree. Mariah has been in control of her career since Butterfly. I have said this so many times, but I'll say it again: In an interview with Perez Hilton back in 2008, when there were rumors that Migrate would be the second single, he asked about it and Mariah quickly let him know that she knew what she was doing, that the second single would be a ballad. They really thought Bye Bye would be a smash. Some of these delulu should have hold Mariah accountable for her bad decisions and stop justifying shit.

Qatar wedding performance (103,700) by Edward from USA

Some artists have backing tracks to give their voices a break on taxing tours, they are human after all. When you're lipping more than singing and the live parts are subpart, that's a problem. Different from Madonna and Beyonce, Mariah concerts are centered on her voice and it's perfectly ok to expect consistent decent singing.

Qatar wedding performance (103,691) by Edward from USA

You might have enjoyed that mess from the audience, but to equate any part of it to anything remotely good is being delusional. Her "live" performances weren't always like that way. And no, nobody's expecting 90's vocals. When you're in house and excited, the gimmicks are difficult to discern. In two of the three Christmas shows I've been to, there were notes and parts I swore she had sung live, just to later realize they were playback when I saw the videos my friend had recorded for me.

At this point the lipping galore won't stop. I just hope she compensates with great productions and energetic performances. She should practice walking unaided again. At least 30 steps per concert. Standing pretty won't just cut it anymore. I remain positive though, still enjoying MB30.

It's called business. An ATM with a wig on would be if she were being taken advantage of without getting anything in return. It's just the way things are, no one stays at the top forever. Let's be grateful that when she was at the top, she was tour de force. Often imitated, never duplicated.

Randy, she shouldn't argue for her legacy, her legacy speaks for itself and it does it very well. Her legacy is there for us to enjoy and for others to discover. All of us got hooked with her music because of some performance on TV or some song on the radio and we went from there. Millions have the chance to do the same every year with "AIWFCIY". I discovered "Eva Cassidy" ten years after she was gone while watching Michelle Kwan ice skate to "Fields of Gold". If the legacy is good, it doesn't need promoting.

The greats (103,613) by Edward from USA
(Saturday 30 September 2023; 00:56)
I remember when Social Media hit big with Facebook. I looked at people taking pictures, posting their lives online and getting their house emptied because they posted they were in the UK while their house was in the US. I decided I didn't want to be part of that. The most damaging one is TikTok, many kids have developed some sort of Tourette's syndrome because of that. I hope it goes away before the LBGTQAI2S+ takes all the letters from the alphabet and we have to communicate using symbols and noises. And don't think about it Randy, you don't get to identified as "Right to Dream".

Well, downloading music doesn't matter anymore. Most people stream because the music is available on YouTube and many other platforms and it still counts, hence AIWFCIY hitting the stop spot for three consecutive years now.

In the very distant future, I think that's a possibility though.

Streaming was a game changer. It has taken over radio by showing a real reflection of what's really popular. AIWFCIY is what I consider a pure number one, its position on Billboard depends on the people, not a promotional tour on radio or the record label convincing anyone. If a song is popular on streaming, radio has to pick it up. What Billboard did by changing the rules was smart and fair. If a song is the most played/heard, why should it be kept in obscurity? Changing the rules has not only benefit Mariah, she just happens to have the most popular song during the holidays, but Brenda Lee's "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" could break AIWFCIY record, should it hit number one anytime in the future, the song is 65 years old.

Mariah's discography, while glorious and impressive, will eventually be in the past with those of us who have lived it as decades go by. That's why AIWFCIY is so important. AIWFCIY is bigger than Mariah herself. I doubt "I Will Always Love You", "My Heart Will On" and "Hero" will be a thing a hundred years from now. By then, she'll probably be the only diva of the past being played at Christmas time and her voice will make some people curious about her life and music.

Drake gets his 12th number one (103,589) by Edward from USA
(Wednesday 27 September 2023; 14:09)
To be honest, I don't really care about that anymore like I used to. That record will be broken eventually, especially now that anybody can debut at number one, first was Mariah, then Ariana and now Drake. What none of them has is a song like "AIWFCIY". The "OSD" record was more important to me. Once "All I Want for Christmas Is You" becomes the longest running number one single on Billboard, now, that one will be tough to break. If OSD took 16 year, that one will take decades.

Mariah suffers from imposed torticollis since 2008. As for #dem-tits, that's the effect of the push-up bras. She should get smaller ones.
