    Came across this today, in an article discussing Mariah Carey's recent album flopping and what she can possibly do to boost her career.

    Publicity guru Bob Merlis, who spent most of his career at Warner Bros. Records, where he applied his magic touch to everyone from Madonna to Morrissey, quipped, "She should do a country record and a Howard Stern interview, where she has the time to explain herself that she doesn't get in those tabloid sound bites."

    What he failed to mention was how a sit down with the King of All Media in the late '90s surfaced again during her 2001 breakdown. She went on a rant against Stern during an in-store appearance at Tower Records, saying his form of humor greatly upset her, during her period of "erratic behavior," which included an infamous drop-in on MTV's TRL, where she handed out ice cream bars and began a modified striptease to the astonishment of host Carson Daly.

    I know reading this will just convince The Wigged One even further that the two-interview show that the show has "evolved" into was a good idea...
    :facepalm:

    (ETA: this was my first thread and I screwed up the alignment and now I can't seem to fix it... d'oh
    :facepalm:)

    Lady Gaga's career has crashed and burned after an interview with the wigged fraud. She is likely off buying twitter followers from India just like wiggy.

    Mariah Carey's record "flopped" because she's 44 and has been passed over by today's generation. It happens to all musical acts from 20-30 years ago, which is too bad, because some of them are still making good music (Van Halen and their last record is an example).

    If her career's in the toilet, being interviewed by the wigged fraud would only serve to start the swirling motion that happens before it goes down the drain completely.

    I follow her on IG and the build up to the release date of her album was never ending!
    Plus she dresses in these ridiculous long gowns and opera gloves-she's totally non-relatable to her fans IMO :facepalm:

    In order to reviver her career she needs to

    a) get back down to her late 1990's bikini weight
    b) marry Tommy Mattola again

    Then

    Once you go black... You're no longer a sex symbol :). Not a good move for someone that lies on sex to accommodate her complete lack of talent other than to hit one fucking high note in every fucking song.

    Me neither, Mariah's always been one of the thicker divas even at her thinnest, sorry white dudes, they can't all have asses like 9-year olds.

    The reality is she's still working with producers & song-writers she's been with since the late 90's. Jermaine Dupri hasn't penned a hit in ten goddamn years. 808 bounce & trap music is in but the bitch would rather be doing the same piano ballads.

    Sex appeal isn't as big of a deal as we like to act like it is, it doesn't hurt, but you need the hit record first & foremost. All pop music sounds like trash to you guys, so it's easier to rationalize the hot image as the reason for success vs. the bad music.

    Madonna's had many hits since her vag dried up and she became a gap-toothed granny skeletor, for instance. That's because she generally keeps up with shitty Eurodance trends and her actual music is relevant, keeping her wretched puss on magazines for decades.

    Mariah needs to sit in the audience at AGT so her husband can introduce her to America.
