About Norman from USA: I've been a fan of Mariah's since I first heard Love Takes Time (I don't know how I initially missed Vision of Love), and I haven't looked back since.
Her music has been there for me in my darkest hours to help lift out of the depths of whatever I was going through at the time. She's my all time favorite female singer, even though I love many others.

It's funny to think of her music as a "friend", but it's always been there for me. I love her talent.

" As we drifted to another place and time
And the feeling was so heady and sublime
As I lost my heart to you
There in the dark
Underneath the stars"

Quick question (106,020) by Norman from USA
This is just for fun, okay? I was wondering what you guys thought would be the bigger pop culture moment:
a) Mariah and Madonna having live on-camera moment together. (doesn't have to be a duet. It could be something like Whitney and Mimi did as presenters, or a PSA, or cameo in the other person's video.)
Or b) Mariah and Celine doing something similar.

I only mean it as a Zeitgeist moment to move the needle. It's not about liking or disliking anyone or whatever they do. Simply in terms of a moment. Thoughts?

Emojis (105,985) by Norman from USA
Yeah, that one stumped me, too. I hope it's up-tempo if it's a song. And please have a MV with a story and a budget (fingers crossed).

There goes my heart again (105,972) by Norman from USA
The only one I'm believing is the new medley of fan faves and rarely performed songs for the Vegas shows. That seems more plausible. I'm ready to be wrong and surprised, however.

Cardi B (105,859) by Norman from USA
It's a Freestyle track and not meant to be a traditional single. I'm all in for Mariah to collab with Cardi if it makes sense to her. I don't believe this was the track she was meant to be on because it doesn't make sense on a Freestyle track; it doesn't even have a hook. I'm still optimistic we'll get something else from Mimi aside from the 30th anniversary of Merry Christmas in November. YAR has grown on me quite a bit but I'm still preferring the Selfish AI cover because it's just "her" and for the flow of it. The JT version doesn't hit the same and is unmemorable imo.

Ethical? Maybe not. Great? Yes (105,804) by Norman from USA
Hey Todd, was the file taken down, or did you delete it? I'd been able to upload it to Spotify and listened to it on a playlist I made with Yes, but now it won't play. Either way, thank you for uploading it in the first place. Cheers.

AG + MC = remix #1 (105,411) by Norman from USA
Wow. Okay, so it's happening. You can preorder a copy there. There's also a cover for the vinyl single or something else that has Ariana with her back towards us leaning against a taller woman (MC?) who's also wearing a ponytail. A storm is brewing. Apparently out this Friday.

Ethical? Maybe not. Great? Yes (105,404) by Norman from USA
Thank you, Todd. I really like this a lot. I didn't even recognize it when I first heard it. I listened to about half of JT's original and couldn't get into it, but this caught my attention from the start. Imagine if she actually sang this, it would be that much better. It sounds current and fresh without seemingly jumping on a trend or whatnot. It's right in her mid-tempo wheelhouse, truthfully. I like that the vocals are clear and not overwrought and or ornate just because they can be. I know she can give us even better than this. Here's to miracles.

Yes, And? (105,321) by Norman from USA
It would've been top 10 without all the remixes. A top 10 debut used to be a big deal, it could've been top 5 even, and that would've been great too. But it's all BS now.

Megan got more sales than Ari without a dozen remixes. Yeah, she added some later, but not 12 or so. I really lost respect for Ari for that, even if it was her team. She knows damn well what they're doing.

I can't remember what publication had an article about how a #1 debut doesn't mean what it used to in the age of streaming. Especially when they drop like lead after the first week. Oh well. Hate the game, as they say.

Why I thought this slug was from Business Insider is beyond me, but here's his "scoop" on Mariah's new music. [Webmaster: Did you know this website also has a news section?]

Tomorrow (105,265) by Norman from USA
That slime weasel from Business Insider (yes, Friedman) is supposed to have news on Mariah's new album. I don't know why he's getting a scoop, but here we are.

Tributes (105,231) by Norman from USA
I know Tori Kelly can sing better than that. She might've really been nervous singing in front of Mimi. At least Mariah shared her on her IG. And I agree that with such a vast catalog they should find something else.

It's tea time somewhere (105,229) by Norman from USA
So Ayo Edebiri is hosting SNL with "musical" guest I Don't Know Her. And the gag is that Ayo had a whole lot about her when she was going to do the Superbowl with Shakira. Listen to Ayo on this podcast dragging her.

Couture (105,225) by Norman from USA
Hahaha right? To be fair though, I found out she's worn that specific designer on more than one occasion before last night. Once for the launch of the Chopard jewelry collab in 2022, and most recently for the Lovers & Friends concert, and they were both black with some gold.

Very true about the comfort zone thing. It was adventurous at least. Yeah, I'm looking forward to seeing what she has in the works for this era.

Couture (105,216) by Norman from USA
Apparently, it's Schiaparelli design from F/W 2023. But it really needed the drama of the train and better draping around her body. I had my suspicion K. Jenner might have had something to do with it, and since discovering it is in fact a designer they regularly work with, it's definitely more of a probability that clan had a hand in this.

The shade of it all (105,215) by Norman from USA
So she didn't pay them dust because she went, but the shade was in full effect with "Is this a real Grammy? I haven't seen one in so (cue dramatic elongation of the word) long... we'll figure out what this is later." The humor is still intact
(Friday 2 February 2024; 13:17)
Look (105,212) by Norman from USA
Other than herself, I'm not sure who else to blame for that ensemble moment. To me, it looked like they ran out of time on a Project Runway episode. Oh, well.

Recording Academy Global Impact Award (105,204) by Norman from USA
I agree she should pay them dust, but I'm guessing she'll go or participate in some capacity if Lenny Kravitz is going. He's also receiving the same award.

As an example of how she'd sound in something in that realm. Merely an example. You don't have to like it or want it. It was an example.

Starboy (105,078) by Norman from USA
Nowhere did I suggest she try AI or anything of the sort. It was merely an observation and thought on a new course of action. This song is contemporary R&B and electro pop which could be fresh for her and open her sound back to some pop. Sheesh.

Have you guys hear this AI snippet of Mariah singing Starboy? It's fire. This is the kind of energy she needs in her next album. We need that banger.
