Name: Norman
Country: 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"

I'm sorry for your loss. That's such a young age, too. I'm in LA and it's surging here, again. I have several friends who recently caught it even though they're all fully vaccinated. They've been lucky enough to have only have it be mild cases, but hospitalization is on the rise again. Stay safe out there lambs.

I'm happy about the anniversary of such a monumental album, and I'm looking forward to the documentary - and that's it. We love everybody.

I agree. I keep thinking that maybe she's not inspired enough these days, you know? And it's not about her having to constantly churn out music, but more as in trying to evolve more in her craft. Caution didn't blow anyone away with the vocals, and it wasn't meant to, but I think she gave us some rich textures and musicality on tracks like 8th Grade and GML.

That's always been my take on her actually having something new out - she'd get in shape. It's been her tell. I'm not here to judge her on her figure, I'm just stating an observation.

I don't think she's releasing anything anytime soon. She could be changing her formula, but I'm skeptical. So long as she's happy, it's all good. I simply don't want to hear about projects that won't come to fruition.

Re: Article: Mariah Carey wants to trademark "Queen of Christmas" (100,995) (100,997) by Norman from USA

I read that it's only for merchandise and not for any other reason. So Ms. Love could still call herself that, just not on official merch. It's a distinction, but it could have been avoided all together.

I honestly don't understand the need for this either. Whenever someone calls her that during an interview, she refuses to take the title. Now someone in her team sold her on the trademark idea? It's not something she needs or that helps her brand in any way. I couldn't care less about this endeavor. Her should focus on nailing down her brand and working to elevate it. Mariah needs some new blood on her team - people with vision and purpose.

All that said, I don't know who this Chan lady is. I googled her and still couldn't make sense out of it. This is probably the most notoriety she's ever had/is likely to ever get.

And Ms. Love - well, bless her. She has a right to make her coins off of whatever she can. Citing David Letterman as reference doesn't help her in any way, however. It's all subjective.

Nobody puts Christmas on the map like Mariah. Nobody. For better or worse. Whether it's trademaked or not, it's just the truth.

I believe it's a Christmas song. He was asked about his Christmas album and whether or not he'd thought of a collab with the queen of Christmas MC. I hope I misunderstood.

I know it's a remix with Madonna's song and all, but if you think anyone is going to tell Beyonce who she can or cannot name-drop...

Beyonce released a remix of Break My Soul (Queen Remix) with Madonna. It mixes BMS with Madonna's Vogue. If you're familiar with Vogue, you know there's a part where Madonna name checks Hollywood icons like Marilyn Monroe, Dietrich and DiMaggio. Well, in this remix Beyonce starts the name check with "Queen Mother Madonna, Aaliyah." And then proceeds to name-check various other female entertainers (checks Grace Jones twice) but omits Mariah. Doja Cat gets in the mix, but no Mimi. I thought it was interesting.

I'm not so sure about that Joachim. I'm a Capricorn and am currently dating a Scorpio, and have done so before. Maybe check out a fellow Cappy?

Yeah, I wondered about that too, Bill. He worked on VOL with her as a producer, and I'm guessing that's why she always says it ended up being over-produced (she prefers the demo version).

He mentioned something about her possibly releasing one of their songs from the vault, though. Possibly in The Rarities 2?

Here's an interview he did recently where he talks about first working with Mariah on her debut album, specifically about writing IDWC with her. It's a long interview and very interesting, but only the first part is really about Mariah. There's also a first part to this interview where he talks about working with Whitney on I Wanna Dance with Somebody if you're interested. He's quite the characters.

The Luis Miguel series is spilling some tea. The story of when and how they met doesn't fit Mariah's. In fact, it hints that it predates Derek and even the Motorola [sic] divorce. It also claims that Mariah had an "ex" on the set of Glitter. Oh, and the infamous duet was bust because LM accused Mimi of autotuning his vocals in the production.

British singer Jade Ewen will portray Mimi in the 3rd season of the show. It'll be interesting to see how she's portrayed.

My crazy mind came up The Jonas Brothers when I first heard about this. I know how absurd that sounds, but it's what popped into my head. Maroon 5 would be cool but I doubt she would collaborate with them. She should, though. Maroon 5 is very consistent on the charts. She didn't really seem to connect with the guys during her appearance on The Voice. She wouldn't stop going on about Kelly or Jennifer, however.

I have Jazmine Sullivan's Heaux Tales and Dua Lipa's Future Nostalgia (yes, still) on heavy rotation. Other than that, I am mostly listening to a bunch of different artist singles. Notable mentions:
Zoe Wees
Natalia Lafourcade
Chole x Halle
