I don't think her mind can concentrate when she's like this, that's why she looks sidewards in interviews, she also rambles a lot like she's in her head too much. I notice these days when she's doing a post about something she has to read off something (and not very well) it's like she can't think and her mind goes blank.

Mariah sounds drunk on her latest post for Harpers Bazaar. Not sure if she’s in a great place right now.

Doesn't the song have to stay at number 1 for so many consecutive weeks as apposed to a few weeks here and there?

Yes if you put it like that it's easy to say why does she do this and why does she do that? But really she's only human and subject to the vices that help her cope with life. Yes she lives a very privileged life but unfortunately mental health holds no barriers. And I think living in the world of stardom opens up even more issues.

But she must thank her lucky stars everyday she got famous as I can't imagine her looking like Alison now haha.

Makes you wonder why she had the Rhinoplasty's I'm sure she would have been advised against it, I bet MC thought she would be immune to vocal changes from the surgery. I did like the fact she said the other day that her voice was in the best condition for a long time, it's like she's acknowledging it now, even though I don't think it is in great shape. If I had that gift I would do all I could to protect it.

Change (99,145) by Jamie from UK
(Monday 13 December 2021; 22:26)
Why do you think Mariah changed her style of singing? I noticed a change on Daydream initially then more so on Butterfly. She no longer chose to sing in full voice all the time and opted for a softer more whispery sound. My favourite albums are Emotions and Music Box, her voice ooozes soul on those tracks even more so on Emotions.

Do you think this switch in style has led to her vocal decline, and she forgot how she used to sound? Or do you think she had no choice? Do you think she could sing in a fuller voice now instead of her current tone, as I think she would connect musically and lyrically to a larger audience again if she could choose to sing that way again.

Re: Debut Mariah (99,062) (99,063) by Jamie from UK
(Tuesday 7 December 2021; 22:01)
Yeah but as we've shown she got herself back between 2005-2010 she was very humble again and grounded. All I'm saying is at the moment and for a while she's taken on this whole persona. I'm not asking for debut Mariah back that would be silly as times change, yes people do change but they still retain elements of who they are. To me it's like she's lost all of who she once was. I love Mariah and always will but I'd love her to take time out to find herself again like she was in the video Bill shared, humble grounded and in touch with reality.

Now that's Mariah. She is exactly the same there as she was in her early days. That's the Mariah she needs to reconnect with.

I agree Bill, whilst I've come to accept the MC of present I've always wondered what happened to that soulful singer of the early days. She didn't even need to try and be cool she just was. I get Sony made her dress certain ways but they can't control her personality.

Even in the Butterfly era she was still herself just a bit more confident but that worked too. Something serious happened around the time before and after her breakdown as like you say it's like it's a completely different person.

I did think she got close to being herself again during Emancipation and E=MC2 but after that I feel something went wrong again. I know she has her mental health struggles but surely she must look at those early days and think she's so disconnected from that person.

I'm not expecting her to have curly hair tied up and skipping around a field like in Dreamlover again but I think she needs to reconnect with her earlier self and loose the whole diva act, it hasn't been working for sometime now so instead of letting go of her inner child I think she should think about letting go of this persona she's created. Loose the divaness, look good but don't get hung up about it and just connect with people better.

Dare I say it but Jennifer Lopez is glam looks great but when she speaks to interviewers she's so natural and down to earth you don't say where's the Jennifer from on the 6 because it's the same person.

It's easy for us to comment I guess we don't really know Mariah but I think deep down we all know she's capable of better and like I said Sony may have said she could say certain things back then but her personality was all hers and that must be still in there somewhere.

Just watched (99,045) by Jamie from UK
(Sunday 5 December 2021; 21:21)
Ok I've just watch the magic continues. Whilst I liked it I can't help think what was the point with 2 songs. The interview was pointless really. I'd love to see a dressed down Mariah doing an interview, she's so wooden I'd like to see if there's any of the early Mariah still in there, the one that was quirky in interviews and relaxed.

I don't think it's too bad, it's by no means perfect, her voice is changed, but she's working with what she has now. We can't expect her to be perfect like she was back in the day. I'm just grateful she's still around and able to do these prime time shows for us.
