Mariah on the cover of Marie Claire UK edition
The picture on the cover is the one from Cosmo Girl where she's lying down. And in the magazine, in the table of contents, they used one of the V-magazine (I think, could have been from another magazine, the pics taken by Karl Lagerfeld) pictures.
The article is 5 pages long, and contains another one of those Karl Lagerfeld pictures, and the same picture as on the cover, and also a small pic of her with donatella versace, one from live aid with paul mccartney on stage and one of her from March last year in the white outfit with the white dog.

The event: Mimi in Tunis!
This could be THE event if we think thousands and thousands tourists are in the Tunis city area at that time.  The El Menzah stadium can easily contains 45.000 people and for a lot of concerts prices are around 10 to 110 Euro.

L'évènement : MIMI à Tunis !
Mariah Carey, chanteuse américaine née le 27 mars 1970 à Long Island, possède une étendue vocale rare... 
Ses premiers succès commerciaux (1990-1992), elle atteint le succès international en 1993, c'est aussi l'année de son mariage avec un homme plus âgé qu'elle de 19 ans : Tommy Mottola. 
Pour manque de liberté, elle divorce en 1997 et sort la même année "Butterfly" et le papillon devient alors son symbole de liberté. 
Elle prend alors son indépendance... 
Aujourd'hui "MIMI" alias Mariah Carey nous rend visite à Tunis et c'est au Stade d'El Menzah le 22 et 24 Juillet 2006 qu'elle fera son show devant des milliers de Tunisiens.. 
Tu es prévenu assez tôt, alors ne rates pas l'évènement...

Heroes comment: Ceci risque d'être un événement mémorable si on pense aux dizaines de milliers de touristes fréquentant uniquement la région de Tunis ville à cette période.  Le stade El Menzah peut aisément accueillir 45.000 personnes et pour beaucoup de concerts les prix s'étalent de 15 à 200 Dinars ( une dizaine d'Euro à 110 Euros)

Gillette Venus Awards Best Legs Title to Mariah Carey; Performer and Songwriter Mariah Carey Receives First ``Celebrity Legs of a Goddess'' Title and Announces Fourth Annual Search for Best Legs in America
New York--(Business Wire)--May 30, 2006--Gillette Venus (PG), a recognized authority on women's legs, today named Mariah Carey the first "Celebrity Legs of a Goddess." The superstar, who captured three GRAMMY(R) Awards for her celebrated six-times platinum album The Emancipation of Mimi, was immortalized with a 16-foot high likeness of her perfect legs. Ms. Carey unveiled the replica during a ceremony at New York's legendary Radio City Music Hall, home to some of the most famous legs in the world. 
As the official 2006 "Celebrity Legs of a Goddess," Ms. Carey kicked off Venus' nationwide search for the woman with the most beautiful legs in the U.S. "Legs of a Goddess" contests will be held at select venues during Ms. Carey's highly anticipated concert tour, The Adventures of Mimi: The Voice, The Hits, The Tour. 
"Mariah Carey was our hands-down choice for the first Venus 'Celebrity Legs of a Goddess' title," said Peter Clay, Vice President Premium Systems, Gillette Global Grooming. "She has gorgeous legs, and she radiates the inner beauty and confidence that embodies the Venus brand." 
The "Legs of a Goddess" tour will visit five cities throughout the month of August. Contests will be held at Ms. Carey's concert venues in the following locations: 
1. Miami, August 5, American Airlines Arena 
2. Atlanta, August 9, Philips Arena 
3. Philadelphia, August 11, Wachovia Center 
4. Boston, August 21, TD Bank North Garden 
5. New York, August 23, Madison Square Garden
Contestants will be asked to strut their stuff on a catwalk and "strike a pose" for a panel of expert judges to determine if they have the best legs in town. The judges will be looking for a woman with toned, shapely legs who exudes a confident, vibrant personality. The winner of each local market competition will receive VIP tickets to Ms. Carey's concert and a one-on-one meeting with her backstage after the show. 
Winners from each local market contest will advance to the final round, where a national winner will be named and will receive a grand prize of $25,000 cash. 
The "Legs of a Goddess" contest celebrates the Venus brand and its portfolio of razors. Venus offers a diverse collection of razors that caters to the needs and shaving preferences of every woman. The Venus line includes original Venus, Venus Divine, Venus Paradise, Venus Disposable and Venus Vibrance. 
Mariah Carey
Enjoying one of the most extraordinary years of her entire career, Mariah Carey's 6-times platinum Island Records album The Emancipation Of Mimi captured three Grammy awards and recently passed its one-year anniversary on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. Mimi includes Mariah's 16th and 17th #1 career singles, "We Belong Together" and "Don't Forget About Us," respectively - which tied one of the most enduring chart records in Billboard Hot 100 history, Elvis Presley's 17 #1's. Mariah is now positioned as the only active recording artist with the potential to surpass the Beatles' all-time high of 20 #1 hits. Mimi has sold more than 9 million units worldwide to date, making it the biggest-selling album of 2005, and bringing Mariah's career sales more than 160 million units world-wide.

Mariah enjoying her young fans
Mariah Carey did what she does best last week at the Boys & Girls Club of Newark's "Evening of the Stars" event. Queen Latifah and MTV's big honcho John Sykes were honored at the fund-raiser. 
Miss Carey appeared unexpectedly to present Sykes with his award. He founded the VH-1 "Save the Music" program, which raises money for musically inclined city kids, to supplement government cutbacks. In typical Mariah style - pink satin mini, sky-high ankle-strap heels, a riot of diamonds sparkling against bared skin - she stayed the night, enjoying violinist Miri Ben-Ari. Afterward, she allowed herself to be mobbed by young fans and posed and posed and signed and signed. More than anything else, Mariah Carey loves being loved by her adoring public.

Mariah signed Gillette's Legs Of A Goddess campaign
If you remember, two weeks ago, there was a rumor of Mariah being honoured at a New York City ceremony for having "Celebrity Legs of a Goddess." During the ceremony a 16-foot (5 metre) tall likeness of the star's assets will be unveiled. 
Mariah's a leg-end
GORGEOUS Mariah Carey has insured her legs for $1billion after being signed up to front Gillette's Legs Of A Goddess campaign. 
A source close to the 36-year-old - whose single Say Something is out on June 5 - reveals: "The sum reflects her popularity. 
"She's about to start a US tour and she'll have to be careful." 
In that case, Mariah, don't break a leg on the first night.

Quiet Man posts Pepsi/Mariah spot 
Visual effects and animation company Quiet Man ( recently completed work on a new spot for BBDO and client Pepsi featuring pop diva Mariah Carey. The commercial is part of the Pepsi Cool Tones & Motorola Phones promotion in which one in three Pepsi drinkers will win a ring tone featuring music from some of today’s top artists.
Restaurant takes place in a sleek eatery, where a young couple is enjoying their meal. The man’s cell phone rings, interrupting their dinner and the energy from a Mariah Carey video - complete with singers, dancers and a motorcycle jump - nearly wrecks the place. The tag line directs viewers to the “” site, where they can find out more about the promotion. ?
Quiet Man retouched nearly every frame of the commercial, removing wires from the scenes and adding CGI fireworks to the finale, which also incorporated practical, on-set effects. The studio used a combination of Softimage|XSI, Discreet Flame, and Inferno to pull off the spot, which broke last week.

Mariah revèle quelques infos à propos du Tour
Mariah avoue avoir pris le temps de savourer son succès avant de prendre la route pour un Tour.  Elle veut célébrer l'un des plus grands moments de sa carrière par le Tour.
Lorsqu'elle a parlé auparavant d'invités spéciaux, elle réfère à la façon dont a été enregistré l'album, être dans le studio et soudainement dans la pièce adjacente un autre artiste enrégistre aussi et finalement ils enrégistrent ensemble (ce qui s'est passé avec Snoop).  Mariah dit que lors de son Tour, si elle se trouve dans une ville où se trouve quelqu'un avec qui elle a collaboré par le passé, il se pourrait qu'ils montent sur scène ensemble.
Mariah révèle aussi que lorsqu'elle va à un concert de quelqu'un dont elle est fan et qu'elle n'entend pas sa chanson favorite elle est déçue, elle s'efforcera donc d'essayer de plaire au plus de monde possible. Elle travaille encore à compléter la set list. 
Elle voyagera en bus cette fois-ci et comme elle dort très bien en voiture et qu'elle a besoin de beaucoup de repos lorsqu'elle est en tournée, cela semble une solution idéale, spécialement aux US où elle pourra se rendre compte de la région où elle arrivera à l'opposé d'arriver à n'importe quelle heure de la nuit dans un hotel.
Jack accompagnera et aura son propre petit coin dans le bus.  Tout devrait bien se passer dans le bus tant que Mariah peut se relaxer, se reposer, avoir une TV et des humidificateurs.
Lorsqu'elle ne sera pas sur scène, Mariah se reposera beaucoup vu qu'il n'y a pas beaucoup de temps entre chaque concert, elle ne parlera pas, ne donnera pas d'interviews. 
Ce dernier album et "Butterfly" sont les deux albums préférés de Mariah car ils correspondent à une signification spéciale dans sa vie.  Elle est heureuse d'avoir eu la possibilité de sortir "Shake It Off" en tant que single car dans le passé on lui aurait dit que c'était trop Urban. Cet album a été une opportunité de joie et de liberté et le titre est très significatif car cela a été une période de joie et de liberté pour elle en tant qu'artiste.
Maintenant que nous avons eu l'emancipation, que l''aventure commence..;
En dernière minute on apprend que des conflits d'emploi du temps surviennent pour définir les dates de concert à Los Angeles et Orange County.  Mariah a révélé sur l'antenne de la radio KIIS FM de Los Angeles ce matin qu'ils essayaient de résoudre les problèmes d'emploi du temps mais que les fans Californiens auraient leur concert même si les dates pourraient être à la fin de la tournée.

Mariah Tells LA & OC Fans: "I'm Coming!" 
Mariah made a surprise call to Los Angeles' radio station, 102.7 KIIS FM this morning to clear matters regarding her Los Angeles and Orange County shows. 
Mariah said that she knows a lot of her Los Angeles and Orange County fans are upset at "getting left out" but that she has not forgotten about them and that there were scheduling conflicts. She/Her team and the venues are figuring things out and that the dates will be announced as soon as possible.
Mariah further said that she might add the two dates at the very end of the tour because of the scheduling conflicts, even if she has to "return to Southern California to get them in!"

Mariah reveals some Tour infos
Carey caps off 'Emancipation' run
It was starting to look grim for fans who were hoping Mariah Carey would tour to support "The Emancipation of Mimi."
She certainly didn't need to. Since its release last year, the album sold more than five million copies, spawned smash hits like "We Belong Together" and won three Grammys, all without her hitting the road.
Plus, Carey didn't even know if she wanted to tour. She dreaded staging a long jaunt, and was taking time to savor the sweet success of her comeback. But after some cajoling from fans, the multi-octave diva realized that she needed to be on stage - that she wanted to celebrate the album that marked one of the sweetest times in her long career.

AP: What took you so long to get on the road?
Carey: (Laughs.) Honestly, it was kind of like the album, it has its own life. And I wanted to allow myself to make videos, to really work the record more than I have ... allow people to experience the album, to live with the songs, to feel the videos and the energy and basically get where I was coming from with this project on that level first.

AP: What are the special things you're planning this time around?
Carey: It's going to be kind of off the cuff ... When I said there may be special guests, that's kind of the way the record was made. It's like, I'm in a studio, someone is in the next room, all of a sudden, me and Snoop made a record together. It wasn't planned. If I happen to be in a city where I know somebody who I collaborated with on the record, you never know, they might want to show up if we have that kind of relationship.

AP: How do you determine which songs you're going to play and which ones you're not going to sing without alienating your fans
Carey: I feel like I'm a tough critic. When I go to other people's shows that I'm fans of, and if I don't hear my favorite song, I'm like, 'Man, why?' (laughs). I'm going to do my best to please the crowd, but I also want to be able to express myself creatively, and I think that there's a happy medium now. The set list that I'm working with now - I won't reveal it yet, darling (laughs) - but it's a work in progress, it is going to achieve that, because some of the fans really do want to hear an old album cut. And then it's like some of the fans have heard you do 'Hero' 9,000 times and are like whatever.

AP: How much stuff do you haul around on tour?
Carey: I'm in the process of trying to get my bus together because I'm going to go by bus for the first time, because I really do sleep well by driving - not at the wheel (laughs) but I've always been able to sleep in a car, and my main thing is I always need a lot of rest when I tour ... I think it's going to be pretty cool, especially in America, to see the surroundings and really feel where I'm at, as opposed to being whisked into a hotel room at whatever-o-clock in the morning.

AP: Is your dog, Jack, coming?
Carey: Oh yes, Jack has his own section. He's going to have his own little nook. It's already planned out. ... I may have to bring him out every now and then. It depends on the crowd.

AP: Besides Jack, what is a must-have on the bus?
Carey: Really just to make it as private as possible in my little living space where I'll be hanging out and sleeping. As long as I have a TV and a bed a some humidifiers, I'll be all right.

AP: What do you do during your down time?
Carey: I don't know if people realize that for me to tour, I actually have to have a full day and a half off in between shows, whereas most touring artists do every night, and I just can't do that, because I'm very strong, but I'm very delicate in many ways too. So in my down time, the thing that requires the most discipline is not talking. Like, I wouldn't be doing an interview. I wouldn't be talking to anyone, I'd be writing notes, and sitting in a humidified room, sleeping.

AP: Has your voice ever given out on you on tour?
Carey: No, it's never that, I just know my voice. And honestly, the late great, Luther Vandross - who I had the utmost respect for - taught me an invaluable lesson, which is about the humidification, because the tone of his voice, the airy quality, when he would sing in that breathy voice, there's a similarity that we have. He would say, 'The best place for us is a really warm climate, and you really need to make sure you have humidifiers around yourself all the time.'

AP: With all the success you've had with this album, has it become one of your most special?
Carey: This and 'Butterfly' are my two favorites because they mark two very special significant times in my life, so this will always be a favorite of mine. And I just love that songs like 'Shake It Off' were allowed to be singles. In the past, I would immediately get, 'It's too urban, you can't put it out.' The experience of this record has just been so much fun for me, and just the freedom, and the title was very apropos, because this has been a lot of freedom for me as an artist.

AP: So now that you're free and there's been an emancipation ...
Carey: Now we're having an adventure.

UK "Say Somethin'" review
International superstar Mariah Carey releases her new single Say Somethin’ in the UK on June 5th. Featuring the explosive talents of rapper Snoop Dogg and the unmistakable voice of Pharrell Williams, this latest release looks set to continue the success achieved by her previous singles. 
Say Somethin’ is a captivating mix of smooth rolling beats and Mariah’s trademark sultry vocals, offset by Snoop Dogg and Pharrell and beautifully produced by the kings of all things cool, the Neptunes – making the song destined to be the smash hit of the summer. 
Backed by an instrumental version of the track, Say Somethin’ is the 5th single to be taken from Mariah’s critically acclaimed album The Emancipation of Mimi which has to date achieved 9x platinum status and become Mariah’s most successful studio album in the UK since her bestselling album, Daydream. 
The singer-songwriter’s outstanding success has continued in 2006. Having been awarded 3 Grammies to add to her dazzling array of awards, her most recent was at the 20th annual Soul Train Music Awards, where she was the top female winner taking home a handful of trophies.
Following Mariah’s 17th No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, Don’t Forget About Us, it now places her on equal footing with Elvis Presley’s own record of 17 No. 1s. 
Mariah is the only active recording artist in the 47 years of the Hot 100 (which began in 1958) with the potential to match or surpass the Beatles’ all-time high of 20 #1 hits. In its 47th week on the Billboard 200 Albums chart, The Emancipation of Mimi sold more than 9 million copies worldwide, bringing Mariah’s international career sales to a total of over 160 million units. 
Say Somethin’ is released in the UK on June 5th On Mercury Def Jam

Randy Jackson helps Mariah mix things up on her Adventures of Mimi tour
Mariah Carey is tapping a longtime friend — American Idol judge Randy Jackson — to help her mix things up a bit on her Adventures of Mimi tour, which kicks off in August.
"With this tour, I'm going to be working on some different arrangements for some of the older songs, to kind of like, give it a little more life to them," Carey recently told the Associated Press. "That's not to say they're going to sound totally different and to freak anybody out ... (but) I love re-singing songs to different music."
Carey and Jackson have been meeting to discuss how she'll spice up some of her old hits, and Jackson might even join her on a few dates.
"Randy Jackson is my musical director, and he has been for many years, even before American Idol," she noted.
Carey, who hasn't toured since 2003, is still riding high off the success of last year's The Emancipation of Mimi album, which gave her a huge comeback, with hits like We Belong Together and three Grammy awards.
She said cajoling from fans helped convince her to get back on the road.
"I genuinely want to tour with these new songs, as well as older hits," she told the AP. "These new songs mean so much to me, this time of my life has been so wonderful for me, and I want to experience that with my fans."
The Adventures of Mimi tour, which begins Aug. 5 in Miami and ends Oct. 10 in Phoenix, will make stops in 30 cities across the U.S.

Mariah practices hairstyles
Most singers prepare for a tour simply by running through the songs and training their voice - but not Mimi. 
Mariah Carey is getting ready for her US gigs by practising different hairstyles. 
And she's not just messing about with some mousse and a mirror, the 36-year-old has installed a hairdressers in her New York gaff. Says the barnet-mad babe: "Downstairs I have a salon where I love to practise my hairstyles."
The Adventures of Mimi: The Voice, The Hits, The Tour, kicks off in Miami in August.

Janet Jackson losing the role to Mariah
Janet Jackson, newly svelte after losing 60 pounds, says she gained weight for a role in the upcoming movie “Tennessee,” which she ultimately had to pass on because of her new album.
“The producers wanted to see me in a different light, as a heavier woman,” the 40-year-old singer, who weighed about 180 pounds at her heaviest, tells Us magazine in an issue on newsstands Friday.
“The timing didn’t quite work with trying to finish my album, and unfortunately I wasn’t able to do the film,” she is quoted as saying. The role went to Mariah Carey.

Heroes comment: Something's wrong, Janet needed to gain weight for the role but Mariah is so tin for the same role..... strange.

Mariah part of the "Dunkadelic Era"
"Dunkadelic" is an evolving term that defines spectacular highlight dunks, players by position and status (Dunkadelic Power Forward, Dunkadelic Swingman, and Dunkadelic Mega-Star), All-Dunk teams, and the 'Era' of "Basketball and Hip-Hop" In America. The foundation for the term was created in the playgrounds of New York City during the late 1960's and 70's where the game and R&B soul music was brought together by Julius "Dr. J" Erving. Doc was the cool and smooth hi-flyin' forward that revolutionized the Slam Dunk, and coined the phrase "Bring the Soul to the Hole."
In 1979 while the Doctor was making 'House Calls' at every NBA arena a new music group out of New York called the "Sugarhill Gang" hit the streets with the first big rap sinlgle from a new form of subculture music called Hip-Hop. "Rapper's Delight" poured into the urban neighborhoods that Spring where kids played the city game of basketball, and recited the lyrics to the pioneering song. 
The ladies have always been part of the "Basketball and Hip-Hop" culture from Salt-N-Pepa and Mariah Carey to Mary J. Blige, Beyonce and Ashanti wherever there was basketball the beauty, style, and sex appeal of the females was not far away. The ladies of the "Dunkadelic Era" are simply "Dunkadelicious."

Worldwide Tour or not????
It seems after all there's hope for Mariah's Tour outside the US.  MTV France today talks about a worldwide Tour: "La diva, qui commencera sa tournée mondiale par les Etats Unis" (the diva will start her worldwide Tour in the US) ,  MTV Germany quotes: " Ob Mimi danach auch noch ein Paar Europa Termine dranhängt ist noch nicht bekannt" (It's not known yet if Mimi will Tour a few dates in Europe), MTV Italy: "Mariah Carey in Tour, Parte il viaggio live negli USA. Presto in Europa?" (Mariah Carey on Tour, she will travel across the USA. Soon in Europe?), B-Fly on our forum tells a Dutch newspaper "De Telegraaf" posted on their site that ALL Mariah-fans can be happy right now, because Mariah is touring again.
So wait and see.

No Tour planned in Europe at the moment
As all the announcements on the tour only mentioned North America so far, Honey and Kate from Butterflies Are Free asked Universal Germany if there's any information about a tour in Germany. Sadly so far, the German label hasn't received any info about a tour neither in Germany, nor in Europe. However it seems that "The Adventures of Mimi" will be an international tour after all, as there are plans for concerts in Japan.

Mariah Carey coming to the Pepsi Arena
She's won five Grammys and gone platinum several times over. But there's one thing Mariah Carey hasn't done -- played a concert in Albany.
That's going to change on Sept. 2 when Carey brings her "Adventures of Mimi" tour to the Pepsi Arena. Arena officials made the announcement Tuesday morning.
Over the past year, Carey has staged an amazing comeback, selling more than six million copies of her latest album.
This won't be the first time Carey has been to the Capital Region. Proctor's Theatre in Schenectady was chosen as the site for her first concert special in 1993, and the theatre is featured in the video for her hit "Hero."
Tickets for the Pepsi Arena concert go on sale June 2. Prices range from $20 to $155.

Mariah Carey Plots Mimi's Touring Adventure 
Now that Mimi's been emancipated for a while, she's ready to have a little adventure — so Mariah Carey's taking her on one, launching her first full-scale North American arena tour, which she's calling The Adventures of Mimi: The Voice, the 
Hits, the Tour.
"My summer tour is what I'm gearing up for next," Carey said. "I'm really excited about it."

Carey has played U.S. arenas before, but she usually peppers her tours with smaller theater dates as well. Not this time. Carey has also allotted a break between each date to recover on her first tour since 2003. "As a singer, I need a certain amount of vocal rest, where I just don't talk before I do a show," Carey explained. "On tour it's like really hardcore singing moments and then resting."

Some of those hardcore singing moments on this tour will be within songs from her six-times-platinum "The Emancipation of Mimi" album, but Carey is also planning to revisit hits and deep album cuts from her 15-year catalog, including "Vision of Love," "My All," and "Close My Eyes." She's also considering including one of the 25 ringtones she recently wrote and produced for Pepsi, so that she can show off her "creative tangents." 

"A friend of mind was over and we were going through different concepts for the tour, and he said, 'You should do one of the ringtones!' " she laughed. "So I'm actually thinking about doing the one we're doing the commercial for," called "Time of Your Life."

Opening the two-month trek for the first half will be Sean Paul, while other "surprise" guests remain to be announced. The tour launches August 5 in Miami and wraps October 10 in Phoenix. Tickets go on sale June 2, and despite Carey's reputation as a diva, the prices are comparatively affordable, in the $20-$155 range.

"People ask me, 'Why don't you just go on tour and charge huge amounts of money? Do these small venues, but charge thousands and thousands of dollars to go in,' " Carey previously explained. "Because I have fans of all different ages and different money ranges, and they can't afford to go out and spend that kind of money. Not everybody has a budget to go out and go really high-end." (see "Mariah Wants All Fans To See Her — And Even Smell Like Her").

Before Carey kicks off her tour, she will end her concert hiatus with a Pepsi Smash Concert featuring Chris Brown scheduled for July 29 at Los Angeles' Kodak Theatre.

Mariah launches a summer tour, Sean Paul opening a number of shows
Now that Mimi has gotten her act together, she's taking it on the road. Having re-established herself at the top of the pop heap last year with her six-times-platinum The Emancipation of Mimi, Mariah Carey is launching her first U.S. tour since 2003. 
Called The Adventures of Mimi, it will kick off Aug. 5 in Miami and take the star to more than 30 cities. (Sean Paul will open a number of shows.)
"I've always associated going to a show with summer, and the sense of freedom that evokes," Carey says. "Summertime is the best time for tours, I think. Not that I'm the queen of touring."
The singer has indeed hardly been a constant fixture on the concert circuit. She says, "I need a day and a half of complete vocal rest between shows," which makes tour logistics tricky.
Before recording Emancipation, Carey "was on tour for a while, taking two days off between shows, which left me in a great place vocally. And now, because I'm at a really good place in my life and career, I want to document it."
Carey will, in fact, be filming the journey, for which she'll even use a tour bus. "I had a small one in Europe, but I didn't sleep on it or anything. Someone, I won't say who, told me, 'The bathroom may be a little small for you.' "
Though she jokes about "my reputation as a diva," Carey is keen that her Adventures bring her closer to the audience. 
"I know that my fans already understand who I am. Sometimes I think they get me more than I get myself. But I want everyone who sees these shows to get a better understanding of me, my personal side, by the time they leave."
To that end, the star will mix hits from Emancipation and previous albums with deeper cuts.
"There's a song Close My Eyes from Butterfly, and girls have told me that it helped save their lives after abusive childhoods and relationships. I want there to be intimate moments — not a woe-is-me thing, but a chance for people to recognize that we've all been through things, and we can connect through music."
She won't disappoint the faithful. "I know people want to hear certain songs, and would be disappointed if I sang, say, Vision of Love and didn't give it my all — no pun intended, because My All will also be on the set list."
And don't be surprised if some of Carey's hip-hop collaborators show up as special guests.
"It depends on who's in town and available, but there are artists I have enough of a relationship with — Jermaine Dupri, Busta Rhymes. When I'm in L.A., maybe Snoop will be around."

Will Mariah be called as witness in that trial?
Mariah's "Dinners with the Mafia"
Pop singer Mariah Carey has been linked to the latest mob scandal to rock America. 
An undercover agent has claimed in court that Mariah and her ex-husband, Sony Records chief Tommy Mottola, used to wine and dine with a leading Mafia boss. 
FBI agent Joaquin Manuel Garcia has been dubbed the modern Donnie Brasco after infiltrating the New York mobs. 
He fooled gangsters into thinking he was Goodfella wannabe Jack Falcone. 
Garcia claims Greg DePalma, a 74-year-old alleged acting capo for New York's feared Gambino family, brought him into the mob. 
He said DePalma bragged about his dinners with Mariah and Mottola at Valbella restaurant, a five-star eatery in Greenwich, Connecticut, which the mob were allegedly shaking down for protection money.
On the secretly recorded tape, DePalma described Carey as "very nice, very quiet, reserved". 
A mob informant, Peter Forchetti, then chimed in: "She looks nice now. She looks unbelievable." 
DePalma bragged that he forced the restaurant boss to let another mobster dine for free -the bill included an $11,000 bottle of Chateau Lafitte. 
He also boasted that he forced the restaurateur to give him seven bottles of equally expensive wine for his doctor. 
Garcia is being compared to Donnie Brasco, the former FBI agent who infiltrated the mob and became the subject of a 1997 movie starring Johnny Depp. 
He is testifying in a closed Manhattan federal courtroom against DePalma, who is charged with racketeering. 
A spokesman for Mottola denied that he had ever met the accused mobster. 
A spokesman for Carey did not return calls. 
The trial continues.

Snoop Dogg banned from The UK for life
The ones who read the HipHop, Rap, RnB crib on our forum, know Snoop was arrested after a fracas at Heathrow Airport that injured seven police officers end April.
A few days ago, we knew he was banned from future travel on British Airways for life.
Today, here's what Yahoo! Music UK reports:
Snoop Dogg has been banned from ever again entering the UK following his recent arrest after a fracas at Heathrow Airport, it has been claimed.
The rap superstar was cautioned by police last week, after an incident in the first-class lounge of British Airways in April, in which his entourage clashed with police.
Seven officers are believed to have been injured in the clashes, which prompted the caution and resulted in Snoop being banned from flying British Airways for life.
However, it has now been claimed that because of his criminal record in the US, Snoop, who has been convicted of drug and gun offences, will not be allowed back into the UK.
A 'source' told a UK newspaper that Snoop will lose millions in live revenue because of the ban. He explained: "The Home Office is taking a tough line on him.
"After the foreign criminals deportation fiasco the last thing the new Home Secretary needs is a criminal flying in and out at will."

Heroes comment: I would like to make so many comments, but as apparently it's a political stuff, it would be too long to post here, just one thing, Mr. Home Secretary, I think we should ban for life your hooligans from entering our countries.  And for your record, Snoop paid his duty back in the days in the US and was at the Live 8 in the UK, so, where's the point, I simply don't get it.  Seems to me it's more like a HipHop ban.

Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey Trade Barbs
Apparently there's some bad blood between multi-octave divas Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey. 
According to Access Hollywood, the war of words started when Aguilera said that Carey was "never cool to me" in the June issue of GQ.
"One time, we were at a party and I think she got really drunk, and she had just really derogatory things to say to me," Aguilera told the magazine. "But it was at that time that she had that breakdown, so she might have been very medicated." 
(In 2001, Carey was hospitalized for exhaustion after several bizarre public appearances, including a near-striptease on MTV's TRL.) 
In response to Aguilera's comments, Carey told Access Hollywood, "I had hoped that Christina was in a better place now than the last time I saw her, when she showed up uninvited at one of my parties and displayed questionable behavior. 
"It is sad yet predictable that she would use my name at this time to reinvent past incidents for her promotional gain," Carey added. "It is in my heart to forgive and I will keep her in my prayers." 
Aguilera, whose new album, Back to Basics, is due Aug. 15, seems ready for a truce. "I do not want any bad energy with anyone," she told Access when contacted for comment. "My intentions were not to upset Mariah with any statements that were published or taken out of context. I have all the respect in the world for her."

Heroes comment: Awww Christina, how sweet of you, even IF what you tell is true it seems discretion is a quality you don't have  oh by the way you never drunk huh  oh I forgot you probably need some hype for your upcoming album, please... find another victim 
Let me post what I posted on January the 30th. 2003
"Mariah Warns Christina About Battle With Booze
Mariah Carey has reached out to Christina Aguilera to urge the hard partying pop tart to seek help before she spirals into a full-blown alcohol and partying addiction. She told XXX-Tina, "You're going to end up burned out at 30, like I was!" The scene happened at the party Mariah tossed after the American Music Awards, where Aguilera got so plowed that she nearly lost her skimpy top. Mariah played big sister to the younger diva, begging her not to buckle under the pressures and temptations of young stardom that Mariah herself nearly flamed out on. Carey ordered her handlers to sneak the drunken Aguilera past photographers by covering her with a towel. Even while covered up, Christina continued boozing under the towel! But her cover was blown when her glass slipped and shattered on the sidewalk outside. 
so what? What do you have to say now X-Tina?

Cell phone rings will never be the same, thanks to the Pepsi Cool Tones & Motorola Phones promotion, which begins today. For the first time ever in a large-scale national promotion, music fans can download* new ringtones written and recorded by today's top artists specifically for the ringtone format, a length of 40 seconds or less.
Pepsi and Motorola are teaming up to offer access to an unprecedented 150 original music and voice ringtones by Grammy Award-winning artists and producers. Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, The All-American Rejects and renowned producers Scott Storch and Luny Tunes are a few of the artists who have produced new ringtones that will only be available through the Pepsi Cool Tones & Motorola Phones promotion.
The Pepsi Cool Tones and Motorola Phones Promotion
Pepsi could award more than 260 million ringtones. There will be approximately 800 million Pepsi packages participating in the Pepsi Cool Tones & Motorola Phones promotion.

* Each Pepsi Cool Tones & Motorola Phones code is automatically entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win a Motorola RAZR(TM), Motorola SLVR(TM) or Motorola ROKR(TM) phone.  More than 12,000 phones will be awarded during the promotion.
Ringtones Music Videos on Yahoo! Music
In support of the promotion, Pepsi and Yahoo! developed the idea to create one of the first full-length music videos ever produced specifically for ringtones. Mary J.

The music videos, which include a medley of several of the artists' ringtones, will premiere exclusively on Yahoo!

The mobile music studio will have interactive displays that allow visitors to create music, content and messages for their mobile phone. Additionally, guests are invited to visit the VIP lounge to enjoy cool, refreshing Pepsi products before visiting the DJ stage where they can log onto to enter for a chance to win a ringtone, phones and more!

Dog painted by Mariah will be auctioned
Aspen's Best in Show event, a celebrity-heavy march of life-sized Labrador retrievers painted by the town's bold-name residents and visitors. 
It's a benefit for Aspen Filmfest. The painted puppies will be on display in Aspen and in neighboring towns before they are auctioned off live and online. 
The dog-painting roster already includes Jack Nicholson, Kathy Bates, Candice Bergen, Ed Bradley, Pierce Brosnan, Mariah Carey, Kevin Costner, Snoop Dogg, Sally Field, Morgan Freeman, Goldie Hawn, Salma Hayek, Anjelica Huston, Don Johnson, Nick Lachey, Joaquin Phoenix, Bob Rafelson, Rachel Ray, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, Joel Schumacher and Jill St. John. 
What is Aspen Fimlfest's Best in show? Community participation in Aspen Filmfest's expanding educational activities continues to flourish. To meet this increasing demand and further enhance our programs, we are planning an exciting fundraiser for summer 2006: Aspen Filmfest's Best in Show. Film celebrities will unleash their artistic talents in a new way-by painting life-size Labrador retrievers to be auctioned off at a benefit in early August and online in early September. 
After the official launch in mid-June and a parade down Main Street on the 4th of July, each "star" dog will be auctioned off, with the help of Donna Anderson, at a singular benefit event on August 1st-the proceeds of which will support Aspen Filmfest's extensive year-round youth education programs. 
For those not able to join in on the benefit auction, additional celebrity dogs will be auctioned off online through Charity Folks September 1-15, 2006. Look for Aspen Filmfest's Best in Show splash page on the Charity Folks website starting in June.

DJ Tracy Yong reveals the following on her website:
"One of my biggest right now is my work with Mariah Carey. We’re currently getting "Fly Like A Bird" ready for the dance floors and for now you will be able to hear the remix in my sets. To work with someone as talented as Mariah is, without a doubt, an incredibly great experience." 
Also, Maurice Joshua confirms that he indeed has completed work on "Fly Like A Bird" remix.
The remix has recently been sent back to Mariah so she can re-record vocals to finish the project.

Mariah's concert in NY update!
Apparently, it's at the Madison Square Garden and tickets are on sale 
Guys, the tickets are already on sale on several broker Ticket Services sites and they announce:
Mariah Carey - Madison Square Garden - Tue, 29 Aug 2006 - New York 
Prices go from $260US up to $3.900US  depending of the sites and the seats closer to the stage.  These sites normally sell the tickets at above face value. Prices quoted on these sites are often substantially higher than the price printed on the ticket as they reflect their costs of obtaining premium seating. I'm not doing publicity for these kind of sites, but this means a lot of tickets are already sold to brokers.  Of course, don't buy your tickets there now, but wait for the sale on official sites.

Lee Daniels: "Mariah is an underestimated genius"
"I'm very excited about working with Mariah Carey because she's an underestimated genius.
Keith Boykin: Interesting. She's definitely a musical powerhouse, but I don't know if she's known for her acting, especially after Glitter.
Daniels: But people didn't see that [other] movie she did, WiseGirls, with Mira Sorvino. She was to die for. I saw that movie and she was brilliant. Everybody wants to point to the bad. We always look to the bad instead of looking to the good. An actor is as good as his or her director. And I think that people want to point fingers and hate. It's instinctive. It's nature. And that does not make for great film makers.
Keith Boykin: You've mentioned Mariah Carey, Mos Def, Macy Gray. Those are all musicians who are transforming to acting. What do you think about that trend?
Daniels: I think some of the most brilliant actors come from a place of comedy or music. They're all artists at the end of the day. And I find that when you're working with comedians or musicians they're more hungry for direction and more eager to jump through hoops. Hence often times brilliance comes.

Mariah's US Tour
According to Ritcher who sent the info to Mariah Daily, Island Def Jam revealed today more information about Mariah's US tour.  Starting in August and through October, Mariah will hit 32 dates in the United States.
Heroes note: Remember this info is not officially confirmed, as there's no press release published at the moment, so, wait and see.  Also, if it's really 32 dates in the US , poor Mariah, it will not be a smaller Tour like she wanted.  Let's hope she has full control on all the Tour stuffs and that it will not be Pepsi which will decide of everything.

Bilbao in effect
Sketches of Frank Gehry, the first documentary Pollack has made, which is a paean to the the world’s currently most venerated celebrity architect. 
Sad fact is, despite Pollack’s expensive taste in clothes and buildings, he’s all wrong for a movie about architecture. Gehry needed a genuine cinema artist like Antonioni or John Boorman, directors who know how to make imposing buildings seem to dance. Or even the music video director Hype Williams who shot Mariah Carey’s “Sweetheart” video among the flying wings and metallic curvature of the Bilbao museum and achieved a sense of wonder.

Mariah featured in the May 15th. issue of New York Magazine among the The Influentials 2006
The Influentials: The people whose ideas, power, and sheer will are changing New York.
The May 15th issue appointed some 200 individuals as the most influential people in New York in 24 categories, which included theater, food, fashion, religion, sports, education and politics.
Jay-Z, Mariah Carey and BMG chairman Clive Davis are among the noted influentials in the music category. 
The Influentials in music:
Mariah Carey
Whitney Houston may have introduced melisma (the vocally acrobatic style of lending a word an extra syllable or twenty) to the charts, but it was Mariah—with her jaw-dropping range—who made it into America’s default sound. Every time you turn on American Idol, you are watching her children.

Exclusive Easy-listening songs Bond star listens to on his iPod
By Kevin Turner
Sean Connery has revealed the laid-back tunes on his iPod.
The 75-year-old former James Bond chills out to classical music and Billie Holiday songs. And Rod Stewart's Maggie May is the only rock song to make it into his top five.
Billie Holiday's I Cover The Waterfront, Finlandia by Jean Sibelius and Bobby Darin's Mack The Knife feature among this favourites. The Mairi Campbell and David Francis version of Auld Lang Syne is also on his playlist. Connery is one of a host of celebrities and world leaders who use Apple's cool mp3 player.
Pope Benedict XVI has a 2GB iPod containing downloads of religious music and compositions by Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky.
Even the Queen has a 6GB iPod, which holds up to 1500 downloaded songs.
Buckingham Palace have not revealed what she listens to but confirms she is a big fan of the gadget.
And Mariah Carey admitted to listening to her own tunes - as well as Prince's song I Wanna Be Your Lover.

The secret life of a Mariah fan site webmaster
The ones who run or co-run a Mariah fan website will know for sure what I'm talking about.
Starting your day opening the PC to check the latest news while you quickly eat your breakfast, the sandwich in one hand, 
your coffee mug in the other, you need to type with your toes .
All day long, even when you work, study or whatever, you can't help it, you check again and again the media networks, the press releases, the local or worldwide airplays and charts, just in case something happens somewhere in the world.
When you go out for some shopping, you check if you can see something you can put on your website, like which store has or hasn't Mariah cds in the shelves, if you hear a Mariah song in a store, every little stuff is interesting and if you don't find 
any, you make it happen, you ask in the store if they have the new Mariah single, very loud, so other customers can hear it.
I know this is also the case of a lot of non-webmaster fans.
You jump and scream when Mariah makes it to #1 and you can write it on your website and add happy and dancing smilies in my case. 
You turn mad if someone insults or trash Mariah and post it on your website with vomit emoticons in my case.
In the worst days, you cried, you were sick, you wanted to scream to the entire world what Mariah was enduring (for so far we could imagine) and your website was your salvation to show your support no matter what.
Late in the night, you're still in front of your PC, running your website, your forum and answering the numerous e-mails you 
receive.  Late in the night, when the city sleeps, you open your window to take some fresh air and see there's only 2 or 3 
lightened windows left, who are these people?, maybe some other webmasters....
Then when finally you can't keep your eyes open anymore, you decide to go to bed and can't find any sleep, 'cause you 
want to find new ways to promote and support Mariah.
When finally you fall asleep, your dreams are full of Mariah's voice, Mariah's songs, lyrics, memories....
The "Emancipation" era was a wonderful era for Mariah and her fans, but it almost killed us as webmasters LOL , and it's not over yet.
A big shout out to all Mariah fan sites webmasters who day after day spend a part of their free time to support Mariah and to keep the fans updated .

Bryan-Michael Cox wins Song of the Year SESAC Award Mariah’s "Shake It Off"
SESAC threw their annual awards bash at the trendy Nikki Beach bar and restaurant in New York’s Midtown. And trendy and hip it was! Packed with their best Latin, rock and hip-hop writers, SESAC went all out to make sure everyone had a great time, enjoyed the awards, ate well, and then bopped around to sternum-thumping tunes compliments of one of New York’s finest DJs.
The big awards of the evening went to Cox for Songwriter of the Year, and for Song of the Year for Mariah Carey’s “Shake It Off.” (Cox also had several other songs that garnered awards, including “How to Deal,” “Don’t Forget About Us” and “Like You.”)

As usual on Saturday afternoon, I walk in the city center of Brussels, enjoy the stores, the city, the beautiful areas especially when it's warm and sunny, then just before they go to work, I meet DJs.  You don't care I know .  But, today I heard from the DJs that "Stay The Night" is a hit in Belgian RnB clubs ... and I was like cooooool men, I sooooo love that track, and what do you expect for "Say Somethin'", it's the next single you know, it will be commercially released end May here in Belgium, the answer was: " Dude, that's so freakin' old, we all played it more than a year ago, I don't think it has a chance, at least in clubs".

Well, well, well....
Mariah is not featured on the cover of the 1.000th. issue of RollingStone.
Chris was the first one to announce us the good news and a lot of us (including me) thought that lil' face in the right corner was Mariah (the pic of the cover was small).  Oh well, too bad for RollingStone they "forgot" the best selling female artist, Grammy winner, .... stooooop..... or I'll get mad.  Know what?  I'm gonna laugh, they soooo don't worth my time .  When a magazine forgets Marilyn Monroe and Mariah Carey in their patchwork cover, they really don't worth my time.
They are bleakkkkkkk

It was never announced...
A lot of you guys start e-mailing me about the LA concert.  In fact, it was never announced tickets would go on sale. I read again the Press Release of the Pepsi contract and here's what it says:
"Carey's partnership with Pepsi also includes an exclusive Pepsi Smash concert this summer at the intimate Kodak Theater in Los Angeles, which will be the first stop of her highly anticipated tour. Music fans will be able to win tickets to the show
via radio and retail promotions across the country."
Good luck again to all Cali fans

The Pepsi Smash in LA is a Private Mariah Concert
Earlier this week I told you guys that Cali radios were starting to make contests to win tickets for Mariah's concert in LA on July the 29h.  We now know it will apparently be an "invite-only" show.
Another radio is now added to win tickets to see Mariah at the Private concert.

Grab a copy of Sister 2 Sister magazine, they mention Mariah in 2 articles
- "Tennessee" update
If you guys already checked the Heroes of Mariah Tennesse promo and info page, you have noticed I posted some info about Lisa Cortes.  Here's a lil' update. 
Lisa is Senior Vice President of Production for Lee Daniels Entertainment, a Harlem full-service film studio. "We acquire, we develop, we produce, we raise our financing, and we deliver it to the marketplace, she said. "In Harlem we've been able to do the same things they do in the Hollywood system.
Lisa's shared goal, along with President and CEO Lee Daniels and the rest of the team of Lee Daniels Entertainment, is "to produce bold and unconventional stories. This paradigm will be showcased in a new work in progress called Tennessee. "We're in talks with Mariah Carey to play a waitress. We're very excited about this script and think that she's going to be great. 
So how does a film project like Tennessee begin "We got the script and Lee loved it. Then we started speaking to talent. You find a director, Lisa elaborated. "At the same time you're doing a budget. You start to find other people who will work on the film the costumer, the director of photography you put your team together.
And the senior VP has her act together. She believes that her best ability is getting the big picture: "I have the ability to look at a situation and assess the needs of the individuals involved, the goals, and figure out possible scenarios to get there that will work for all the parties involved. Bottom line, sister can get the deal done! 

- Grammy day with Hezekiah Walker
This year's Grammys were a big deal for Hezekiah Walker. In addition to nominations for several categories, the good pastor was personally asked by pop diva Mariah Carey to bring his Love Fellowship Choir to Los Angeles to perform a gospel song with her during the biggest night in the music industry. Pastor Hez accepted Mariah's invitation and brought 30 members of his choir. Then his publicist, Sean Pennington, had an idea that would be the icing on the cake for this exciting event. "Calvin, Pastor is performing with Mariah Carey during the Grammys and I want you to come tag along and cover the day's events including the rehearsals and all the behind-the-scenes fun," Sean said. This sounded like a boatload of fun and was sure to be an opportunity of a lifetime with many stories to tell.

Heroes note: If by chance someone has the magazine or can read it in a store, it would be interesting to know if there's more info about "Tennesse" and what are the behind-the-scenes stories from the Grammys.

If you look close enough, you can see Mariah in the back right in front of the American flag. Freddie Mercury is next to her.  You really need to search, 'cause they used an old picture of Mariah.
I spent a lot of time trying to recognize most of the people featured on that cover.  Look at Kenny from "South Park" next to John Kennedy

CD Extras - Do We Really Want More, More, More?
Question - Do we really want more or have we been tricked into thinking we want more?
A lot of CDs come with extras. Take for instance, the Digipak or Deluxe Edition. They also usually come with a price tag that has been marked up a couple of bucks. Okay, more material = higher price tag = fair enough, but that’s still an extra eight quarters or more that have me cruising right past the digi and grabbing the disc with just the plain old music tracks on it.
I have picked up a couple of discs with extra media on them – the kind that you’re supposed to be able to put into your computer and up should pop some funky footage of your favorite rockers or hip hoppers in the studio doing something that’s supposed to be interesting. Well, I hope it isn’t too out of this world because no matter what kind of computer I use, Mac or PC, there’s always some kind of software issue or something I need to download to run the extras. This usually adds up to 30+ minutes of my time for a 30 second clip. 
There’s also the famous tactic about artists who already have a hit album, but just have to sell a few million more to their allowance-earning fans. What do they do? In Mariah Carey’s case, you release your album The Emancipation of Mimi in April 2005. It’s a huge hit. Now what? You wait a few months to make sure everyone who ever planned to has bought the album has shelled out for it and then, you re-release it in November of the same year in as an b Ultra Platinum Edition with some extras on it. Do we as fans want this? Is this consumer demand or the consumer being cheated? Do we really want to re-buy an album we already own? True, no one is forcing anyone to hand over cash for the album again, but I’m sure the record companies know that Mariah’s young fans can’t resist.

Heroes comment: Why just picking up Mariah, like she's the only one who's label re-release an album, oh and by the way, not only young fans can't resist!

Bishop Don Magic Juan
You probably all know his name if not you can read more at AllHipHop.
As his "activities" are not Mariah related I'll just post this quote from the interview:
" How did you get your column in Elemental Magazine?
Bishop Don Magic Juan: I got game man! A lot of people been asking me about giving them some game and I got this thing on my website called “Ask the Bishop.” And so I do that out of love for Elemental, where people call in the Archbishop Don Magic Juan. I’ve been the spiritual advisor to Snoop, Mike Tyson, P. Diddy, Lil’ Kim, and Mariah Carey."
