Chopper for Mariah!
Mariah Carey is to land on Oxford Street in London in a helicopter this weekend, according to reports in the UK press.
Carey, the biggest selling female pop star in music history, is expected to attract thousands of fans to the capital's main shopping street on Sunday.
She will be appearing at the Oxford Street branch of HMV at 12pm, to sign copies of her four-times platinum album "The Emancipation Of Mimi". 
Entry to the event is to be strictly limited to people with wristbands secured by buying the album this Friday, from 8.30am.
Apparently Carey will arrive at the scene in a helicopter. "Mariah will descend in a chopper on Oxford Street. It's going to be an astonishing sight," a 'source' told UK tabloid The Mirror today.
Meanwhile, Mariah is amongst the frontrunners heading the field for this year's Billboard Awards, which take place on December 6 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Carey has been nominated for seven awards, with only 50 Cent vying for more gongs, on eight nominations. Eminem, Green Day, Kelly Clarkson and Destiny's Child are also amongst the contenders at the ceremony, which will be presented by LL Cool J.

Mariah Carey To Make Her Theatrical Debut? 
Neil Sean, Sky News UK entertainment reporter was on "Fox & Friends" Friday, November 25th and talked about the latest on Mariah's theatrical appearance on London's West End stage.
Fox News Host: Neil, talk to us about Mariah Carey who may or may not be appearing in a play over there and how is she received in England?
Neil: Oh we love Mariah Carey. Honestly, what we like about Mariah Carey, she is like the Judy Garland if you like, of this country because she's been down, she's been up, she's back. Remember, of course, she made "Glitter" the movie with a very respected English actor called Max Beasley, that didn't go down too well for her. 
Fox News Host: We're trying to forget that. 
Neil: Actually I met Mariah recently and she said that that movie is turning into something of a "cult" viewing. You never know, it can be put back out or rereleased or whatever. But Mariah, we can tell you is basically trying to get her West End theater career off the ground. She was meant to start later this year in of course "The Prince and the Showgirl," the big movie which starred Marilyn Monroe in 1956 with Lawrence Olivier. They couldn't find anybody to play the Lawrence Olivier part and now that her record career has taken off again with the "Mimi" album, she said it could be at least 2008 before we actually see Mariah on stage which would still make her under 40. She's looking good.

The "Pudding Race"
No guys, I didn't take part to a "Pudding Race" today ... but... as Mariah will visit London by the end of the week, I was searching for an hotel, as I would like to go, but... a lot of hotels are fully booked due to the "Pudding Race" in London next weekend.  The "Pudding Race" is a lot of guys wearing Santa Claus outfits who run in the streets with a plate of pudding in their hands, but the great thing is that they run for a fund against cancer, and it seems a lot of people want to see that.
Anyways, the "Pudding" will not stop me  even if I need to sleep in the train station.

Honey and Kate from Butterflies Are Free sent me the transcript they took time to do for all of us to enjoy.

Anyways, here's the transcript guys:
Mariah: Yeaaah and hey. I had to call you because listen, when I explained what happened to me on the stage at the American Music Awards, I wasn't lying.
Rachel: Exactly!
Mariah: A bit the, uhm [giggle] och, even I just found myself performing cos I'm like, 'Oh, I see, they thought the slit whas what was ripped.' No daahling, the whole left side of the upper portion of the dress was ripped, so had I moved the wrong way or whatever, it woulda been a wrap!
Rachel [laughing in the back]
Mariah: So, I was just like oooh why me, why do they [inaudible] So anyways, Jessica Paster, we love you, we love your ensembles but we can't have that no more. Anyway, so I just wanted to say because I kinda like, I just then changed clothes backstage in front of a million people, with one little drape cover me, so I was still kinda like so excited. If you saw when they said I won the award, I was like 'I won?' Okay, whatever.
Rachel: Right.
Mariah: And, erm, I was just trying to tell people the story cos I felt so bad that I couldn't even hear myself for the first half of what I was singing. Cos those monitors, we need to hear ourselves so we can sing along. 
Rachel: Right.
Mariah: Anyway, erm, so I didn't get a chance to show you the love that I feel - I typically do and that, erm, made me upset. So just in case you didn't see me doing it on all the tabloid shows and everything, thank you, thank you, thank you to [loud] the fans! The lambs, to my extended family as I like to refer to you. Also let you know that, erm, without you it would be
Mariah & Rachel: BLEAKOSITY! say what.
Mariah: And [giggles] seriously, I really mean that and I, and I love you so very much and erm, I don't now. I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving. We just got back from Detroit. We had, erm, lil half-time fun out there and then, erm, we ate dinner there with some nice friends and family and things of that sort. We hope that your Thanksgiving was

Island Def Jam released Mariah Carey‘s "Limited Mimi" album to traditional retailers November 15, but will wait until late December to make it available digitally. The album includes the current top 10 hit "Don‘t Forget About Us." Sources at the label say they feel 99-cent iTunes singles are cutting into album sales.

Just running online and grabbing it for free and saying you are a fan of the music is......
Here's what "Nonpoint" singer has to say about piracy, he talks about Mariah too and he's so right.
" I think fans need to be more active. I think they've gotten very lazy to be honest. It's real easy to get music, and it's easy to pass up a show. To call yourself a fan of something means that you're supportive and you care enough about the music to support it. A lot of people saying they're fans of it aren't being supportive, especially when they're turning around and downloading music off of the Net for free.
Downloading only serves the purpose of stealing music. You are stealing music.
Just running online and grabbing it for free and saying you are a fan of the music're not a fan of the music, you just like a song.
Even in hip-hop, Mariah Carey just came off of 10 million records and this record she hasn't even broken two? She's got what, three hits on the Top Ten and they're saying downloading isn't hurting music?
That's bullshit, it's crap, it's a lie that all these Internet companies are saying that it isn't hurting music. There's no doubt...there used to be 10 major record labels and now there's three? And music hasn't changed in the last five years? That's garbage, and for anyone to see otherwise is just naive and stupid."

Please take 2 minutes to read the following and wish good luck to Destiny, I hope from now on life will treat you well sweetie.
Vision of Destiny
Today will be special for Destiny Diaz.
The 11-year-old Rochester girl, legally blind since birth, will see her family and the feast on the table in a way she has never seen before. 
If all goes well, the world around her will become increasingly clear as the months go by.
Destiny's new vision is the result of an artificial cornea implant. It has proved effective for adults but has rarely been used on children.
She received the implant in September at the Rochester Eye Institute, a pioneering unit of the University of Rochester Medical Center.
The surgery went well, and as Destiny adjusts to her new eye, she is seeing more and more every day.
"My crayons, my friends," she said, starting a verbal list of new things seen. "My CDs. They used to be all blurry. I can see Mariah Carey. She's American and she has the same skin as me.

Mariah Carey getting married? 
Friends of Mariah Carey say the sexy songbird will walk down the aisle in June 2006 with the man who helped put her back on top of the pop charts, music executive Mark Sudack reports the National Enquirer.
Said a pal: "Mariah has tried to keep her relationship with Mark under the radar. She guarded the romance fiercely but she's tired of hiding him." 
According to an insider, Mark, 29, was a staffer at Mariah's record label when she hired him as her "house photographer" in early 2004. He then leapfrogged up the ranks at Mariah's company to the point where he was listed as co-executive producer on her hit album The Emancipation Of Mimi! 
Said the pal: "She considers Mark her lucky charm - and largely responsible for her best-selling CD in years.
"Mariah is elated - and she'll soon be making good on the promise of her hit "We Belong Together" when she weds her beau!"

HIP-HOP HALFTIME: Thurston High band to join Mariah Carey at Ford Field
Ambure Kelley is a big Mariah Carey fan.
In addition to owning Carey's CDs and dancing to her chart-topping songs, the Thurston High School senior soon will be able to brag about something most Carey devotees only dream of -- performing with the star.
Kelley's high school marching band is one of a handful of local groups participating in the Detroit Lions' halftime show Thanksgiving Day.
The 17-year-old clarinetist and 104 other Redford Township musicians will play Carey's "Shake It Off" to kick off the 8-minute show.
"I was so surprised; I thought it was awesome," Kelley said Tuesday, describing the moment last Wednesday when Thurston bands director Edward Lucius told his group about the halftime invitation.

"The Emancipation of Mimi Ultra Platinum Edition" whith DVD in Belgium
Now, some stores finally sell the album in Belgium, I got mine Saturday here in Brussels 
BUT...... guys..... the "It's Like That" video is censored , "purple" is edited out  ..... also, if you have a TV which is not compatible with the NTSC format (which is a very low part of the population), you will see the DVD in black and white, our DVD even if it's "made in Europe" is the exact copy of the US one, censored and in NTSC format , I can't believe they forgot to put it in PAL format which is the European format.
Anyway, the album and DVD are great, the online stuff contains absolutely amazing and hilarious Mariah moments, the  interview whith Sanaa Hamri, and a big, big shout out to Shino from Love Love Jack, they used her Jack cartoons with the name of her site on that part of the DVD .

Mariah featured on Da Brat's upcoming album
Extract of "Interview: Da Brat" from AskMen
You just worked with Mariah Carey, collaborated with Missy Elliott and even worked with Jagged Edge. What stands out?
- Mariah Carey. We did "Always Be My Baby"... I was excited to meet her, I had never met a star like her. Working with Notorious B.I.G... that is also one of the greatest collaborations.
Tell us about your album...
- It has only two feature rap artists... they are on one record, I decided to do this one by myself and not have too many rap guests. This one does have special singing guests... like Mariah Carey and others... of course, Jermaine Dupri... expect a fun album.

Mariah's new suit gift to Ellen
Generous Mariah Carey said thank you to US talk show host Ellen Degeneres in style on her daily show yesterday (18NOV05) - by giving her a white Dolce + Gabbana suit.
Carey claimed she was inspired to smarten up her image after wearing a suit Ellen loaned her the last time she appeared on her show - and wanted to repay her for her kindness.
The singer asked to borrow a black suit from the comedienne's backstage racks when she arrived for her show without the outfit she planned to wear - and DeGeneres made her a gift of the jacket and trousers
Grateful Mariah made sure Ellen's generosity was rewarded yesterday when she presented the host with a brand new D+G suit design that has yet to hit the fashion house's stores.
Thrilled DeGeneres said, "I love this. I'm keeping it on, I'm keeping the tags on too because that's cool... Thank you so much, that's sweet."
DeGeneres had a surprise in store for her guest - she invited a group of Los Angeles foster children who have adopted Carey as their living saint onto the show. The singer was scheduled to meet with the children at a special party recently but had to cancel at the last minute to head off on a press tour of Japan.

Damizza, Mariah, Crybaby
Damizza left us a new lil' story on his MySpace:
"When I produced "crybaby" for Mariah,  Snoop had jus got back from the MTV awards in NY.. I had a 2 day deadline to finish the record.. (and snoop was jet-lagged) so we had to do it at his house/the Dogghouse studio.. MC was in NY and all I had was Her vocal on the beat.. So I go out to see snoop, Battlecat, Daz, Kurupt, and the eastsidaz we're there and I played Snoop the track and then we started to get ready to record and cant seem to get the mic to work.. so Snoop, Battlecat and I start looking for the end of the cord to see if it's plugged in- Battlecat had a flashlight and started to look under the board Snoop was on the faders and Mikizza (eng) and I were messin with the gear and tryin to find out a way to make a new Mic cord.. so we finally get it an hour or 2 (and 10 blunts later..) Snoop goes in the booth and Battlecat fixed the problem and recorded the vocal for us...  I think i have it all on video tape somewhere.... any way it ended up being a #1 R&B seller and a top 5 R&B song.. HISTORY!! as they say.."

Heroes of Mariah "The Emancipation of Mimi Ultra Platinum Edition" street promo canceled
As almost no stores have the re-issue (yet), I decided to cancel tomorrow's street promo.
Posted on November the 18th.
Belgium, a complete and total mess!!!!!!!!
"The Emancipation of Mimi Ultra Platinum Edition" was supposed to be in stores on November the 15th.  Some stores in the Dutch speaking part of Belgium started to sell it on November the 10th. (which is forbidden, I took infos).  BUT, now we are November the 18th. and here's what happens:
- only the Free Record Shop stores sell the re-issue.
- Mediamarkt doesn't know when the re-issue will be available and have a lot of the "old" edition on the shelves, which they never had before, you needed to search a lot to find the album since it was out, and now....
- Fnac was not even aware there was a re-issue until I told it.
Brussels area
- Free Record shop sells only the re-issue without the DVD.
Charleroi area
- nowhere to find.
Verviers area
- nowhere to find.
Namur area
- nowhere to find
Liège area
- one small store has 2 copies in stock.
Dutch speaking part:
No details yet, a fan was able to order it at a small store in a little city.
No newspapers, magazines, radios, TVs mentioned the re-issue yet like they do  for a simple cd of a little almost unknown artist.
Several fans, contacted me to tell that due to the lack of promotion and the cd not being on sale, they will boycott the re-issue in Belgium and buy their album in another country. 
I told you guys Belgium is a complete and total mess.

Mariah says Jack is the sexiest man alive
On NBC's The Insider,  they revealed that actor Matthew McConaughey has been named "sexiest man alive" by People magazine. The Insider asked Destiny's Child who they thought was the sexiest man alive as well as Mariah Carey. Mariah's answer was hilarious!
Pat O'Brien (The Insider): "And as for songbird Mariah Carey's pick of the hottest hunk."
Mariah Carey: "Oh, I have to go with a dog, not a man. I have to go with my dog, Jack."

Thousands Turn Out To Mimi's Hollwood Album Signing!
On Tuesday night, at the Virgin Megastore, some 2,500 plus fans lined the streets of Hollywood Boulevard to welcome Mariah to her album signing of her latest release The Emancipation of Mimi: Ultra Platinum Edition.
True to her superstar status Mariah arrived to throngs of screaming, chanting fans along either side of Hollywood Boulevard in a charcoal grey colored Rolls Royce Phantom. As soon as the car pulled up and Mariah’s foot hit the “platinum” carpet the sound outside became deafening from screaming fans straining to catch a glimpse of their idol. Mariah made her way through the crowd stopping intermittently to shake a hand, blow a kiss, wave, and greet her legion of fans. The set-up outside resembled a Hollywood movie premiere with the star of the evening holding court. Mariah graciously made her way through the press line and the flashing lights inside the Virgin Megastore where she signed copies of her new CD for over 4 1/2 hours to accommodate fans who had camped out since Monday at 4:00 am to meet their Idol.
"I love meeting fans face-to-face when I can," she said. "There's something about somebody just connecting with you musically, and knowing that I've written a song that has touched them, that's invaluable to me."
A rep for the Virgin Megastore said "this is the MOST they have EVER sold at any in-store!"

Mariah will perform "Don't Forget About Us" during halftime of the Detroit Lions vs. Atlanta Falcons game, she plans to shoot at least one more video and she's gonna take some time off.
Mariah Carey Plans To Make At Least One More Mimi Video 
When discussing her new The Emancipation of Mimi: Ultra Platinum Edition on Saturday, Mariah Carey casually plugged the release date (it dropped Tuesday) after stating the title.
"Rappers do it she asked, as dozens of rappers were probably doing just that at the Vibe Awards taking place around her.
These days, after the success of the original The Emancipation Of Mimi (4 million sold in the U.S. alone), Mariah can do just about anything she wants. The question, then, is what will she do next?
"I'm definitely gonna take some time off," said the singer, who's been promoting the album nonstop since its April release. "I'm totally excited for the holidays, which is like ... I'm queen of festivities, that's my bag, but I think I have to figure out what my next thing is gonna be."
While she determines where to go with her Mimi follow-up, Mariah plans to keep promoting Ultra Platinum Edition with at least one more video. (She refused to reveal for which track.)
Currently, she's enjoying continued airplay with "Don't Forget About Us," which was the initial reason for re-releasing the album.
"'Don't Forget About Us' was a song that Jermaine and I started writing and didn't finish, and L.A. Reid heard it. He was excited about it and he was like, 'We should re-release the album,' " Carey recalled. "And I'm happy 'cause I got to do another video, I'm gonna do some more videos, and I got to do some more exciting collaborations, so it's cool and really a thank-you to my fans -- that's kind of like a constant theme in my life."
Along with the new single, the Ultra Platinum Edition features three other unreleased tracks, "So Lonely (One and Only Part 2)," a remix of "We Belong Together" featuring Jadakiss and Styles P., and "Making It Last All Night (What It Do)" featuring Jermaine Dupri.
The re-release also includes a link to download the "Don't Forget About Us" video, which re-teamed Mariah with Paul Hunter, who directed her favorite video of her career, "Honey."
"It deserved an MTV Award, but once again I got shut out, as would be the standard," Carey, who lost again at this year's Video Music Awards, complained. "But I was so happy to work with him again 'cause ever since 'Honey' I've been trying to relive the splendor of that moment. It's more of just a plain beauty piece with sentimental overtones, but it was great to work with Paul again."
Mariah has called "Don't Forget About Us" a basic love song and chose not to elaborate further on Saturday.
"I try not to get too specific so that people can apply the lyrics to their own lives," she explained. "When I was growing up and listening to the radio and I would hear a song that reminded me of a certain person or a situation or whatever, I would want to be able to completely connect it to that moment. And then if I heard someone explaining it and making it into something totally different, it ruined it for me. So I kind of like to keep it open for people's imaginations."
Carey will perform the song at Tuesday's American Music Awards as well as on Thanksgiving during halftime of the Detroit Lions vs. Atlanta Falcons game.

"I never went anywhere. And my real fans have always been here for me" - Mariah, November the 15th.

A triumphant Mariah Carey returns to Hollywood
What a difference four years have made.
In 2001, soul-pop singer Mariah Carey took on Hollywood, and Hollywood won. Her feature-film starring debut, "Glitter," proved anything but gold. The film was drubbed by critics and ignored by ticket buyers.
What followed in Carey's life could have made a far better film: She suffered a breakdown and, within a year, she was bought out of her $100-million contract with Virgin Records. For a brief time, she didn't even have a record label.
Tuesday night - ironically, at the Virgin Megastore - Carey returned to Hollywood nothing less than triumphant. Her latest CD, "The Emancipation of Mimi," is the year's best seller in North America with 4 million units sold. She's sold another 2 million copies worldwide.
Hundreds of her fans waited for the chance to get their "Mimi" CDs signed in the store.
Talk about a comeback kid.
"They can call me whatever they want," Carey, 35, told AP Television News. "I never went anywhere. And my real fans have always been here for me. And, you know what? It's a wonderful feeling and everything I have is because God has blessed me with this and I'll always be grateful for what I have."
Carey showed that gratitude to the fans who lined Hollywood Boulevard, some of whom had waited days for her arrival.
Before posing for pictures and talking with reporters, Carey - in a low-cut, mid-thigh length silver sequined dress - greeted and chatted with the fans on the street. Once inside the store, she seemed to work hard to make meaningful connections in the brief time she spent with the 400-plus fans who got autographs.
"I love meeting fans face-to-face when I can," Carey said. "There's something about somebody just connecting with you musically, and knowing that I've written a song that has touched them, that's invaluable to me."
This week marks the release of a special-edition version of Carey's latest CD, called, "The Emancipation of Mimi: Ultra Platinum Edition," with four additional tracks not on the original release, including the just-released single "Don't Forget About Us." It's already No. 20 on this week's Billboard magazine Hot 100 chart.
The previous single, "Shake it Off," is still No. 9. After a long run of 32 weeks, the chart-topping "We Belong Together" hangs tough at No. 26.
Being on top of the charts "is an amazing feeling" and a "validating experience," Carey said.
And despite "Glitter," Carey is even talking about getting back into film acting - even if she isn't saying much just yet.
"I'll talk to you about all that soon," she said, laughing.

There's a clause in the wedding contract which says that the couple needs to stay without kids, 'cause Tommy Mottola doesn't want his fortune divided, as he already have 2 children (adults now).

Now Timberlake Wants To Release 'Yours' Duet With Carey 
With Mariah Carey's smash success in 2005, those to shied away from her during her post-'Glitter' turmoil are getting payback, including Justin Timberlake. The *NSYNC star was too busy to release their duet 'Yours' as a single on the 'Charmbracelet' album in 2003 when things were still tough going for Mariah, but now he's itching to ride Carey's current success. "Mariah's time has now come and he's the one begging," an insider said.

And the press says Mariah is capricious .... Read this guys  (no offense to the Madonna fans)
Madonna refused to use the provided toilet during her appearance on the German show 'Wetten, dass..'. Producers of the program used a crane to deliver the Material Girl's rented 18 square meter luxury toilet into the grounds. The first-class facility, also rented in the past by the Pope, features two wash basins with halogen lighting, two showers and a separate toilet room and costs $6,000 to rent.

If you bought or plan to buy the Merry Christmas re-issue, you need to be careful if you plan to play it in your PC .  Please try to follow the news, as Sony BMG used a new way to fight against piracy by adding a spyware to their cds.  This software installs a kind of Trojan to spy what you do with your cd, copying, sharing, etc... Unfortunately, it turned out as a bad idea and a bad technology as it caused damages to several PCs accross the world. 
The software has been included on a limited number of Sony BMG cds but the company was not able at the moment to identify which cds contain it.  Sony BMG regrets the damages caused.
You probably all know by now I'm totally against piracy and sharing of commercial tracks, but this goes way too far....

Check messages from Mariah
Mariah Carey has sent secret messages to fans in the video for new single Don't Forget About Us.
The sexy promo features the diva frolicking on a football pitch, while behind her is a wall covered with graffiti.
The bright markings on the wall are in fact messages from Mariah. One is a thank you to the fans who set up the website devoted to her dog, Jack.
Another is the number 17, which refers to the fact that, if this single tops the American charts, it will be Mariah's 17th No. 1.
There are five messages in total, which Mariah hopes fans will unravel.
She said: "It'll be interesting to see if they can figure out what they mean.
"It's a sort of thank-you to my fans."
The promo was shot in Los Angeles by director Paul Hunter and is currently being aired on MTV.
We've got our hands on the artwork for the new single, which is released on December 12.

"The Emancipation of Mimi Ultra Platinum edition" in Belgian stores tomorrow
Apparently, according to Free Record Shop Belgium, the album has been pushed forward and will now be on sale tomorrow (but the stores are closed, remember it's November the 11th.), in a way it's good news , but the Heroes of Mariah street promos are messed up, as Saturday it was the street promo for "Get Your Number" and later the street promo for the Ultra Platinum album.  I'm stressed out and really confused, even more as I had a phone call with Universal Belgium today and they didn't tell me the release date was changed.  Weird, really weird.

Awwwwww, poor Tommy..... 
Marc signs to new manager
Tommy Mottola's management firm has lost Marc Anthony as a client. The Latino crooner, a major money earner, has rehired his brother Bigram Zayas, our spies say. Zayas managed Anthony for many years until Mottola came on the scene. "Marc missed him so much," a source told PAGE SIX, "and he doesn't trust anyone else." The Anthony/Mottola split effectively puts an end to Mottola's dream of managing Anthony's wife, Jennifer Lopez — whose career he helped make when he was head of Sony Music. Mottola once sneaked Lopez the tracks his former wife Mariah Carey was planning to use on her album "Glitter" for Lopez's song "Jenny From the Block," which became a huge hit, while Carey — who had to scramble to find tunes — saw her album founder. Anthony's rep confirmed the move.

Patti Labelle a lil' jealous of Mariah ?
Several fans saw Patti LaBelle on the Doug Banks Show talking about the problems she had with Def Jam.  She said the label did not promote her latest albums, so she decided to leave the company, but was dropped by Def Jam before she left.
She then was angry telling she was in the business for so long and couldn't understand how she was treated. She mentioned Mariah, telling Def Jam would not treat Mariah that way and mentioned Mariah's name several times and finally refered to her as "Queen Mariah" in a sarcastic way.
About two weeks ago, an interesting article was refering to Patti's troubles with L.A. Reid.  Click here to read it.

The "Don't Forget About Us" video banned by Malaysian censors
Mariah on fire
This is the extremely steamy new vid from Mariah Carey.
The promo - for December 12 release Don't Forget About Us - got Malaysian censors so hot under collar they banned it.
As our exclusive stills show, it features some seriously raunchy shots of the super-sexy 35-year-old.
We see a very-scantily-clad Mariah writhing on the floor and getting up close and very personal with a mystery hunk in a swimming pool. 
The amazing video, shot by Paul Hunter, was inspired by Marilyn Monroe's unfinished last movie Something's Got To Give.
The singer, who owns Marilyn's piano, told us: "I'm a big fan of Marilyn Monroe. The pool scene in the video is in honour and homage to her."
Some do like it hot...

Jonas bumped into Mariah on 5 November, 2005 in New York City and he told her how he wished she would perform at the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in the Rockerfella Center this year since her "Merry Christmas" was re-released. This is what Mariah had to say:
"Sony ain’t doing it, I don’t know why." 
"But I would love to." 
She smiled then turned around and said, "Ya know, you should have everyone e-mail Sony and convince them."

Heroes of Mariah street promotions
I told you yesterday that we needed to go to the city mayor services to ask the autorisation document to make our street promo.  We were a lil' worried 'cause it's not very easy.  Well, we succeeded .  The guy was nice, he asked us all the details and a copy of our promo stuffs and he putted them in the city archives (yes, Mariah will be archieved forever in the Brussels city documents).  He then printed the documents we need to show to the police if there's a control.
Anyway, the "Get Your Number" street promo will take place this Saturday November the 12th. in the afternoon in the city center of Brussels.
The "The Emancipation of Mimi" re-issue street promo will take place Saturday November the 19th. in the city center of Brussels too.
If you guys want to take part to one or both street promotions, drop me an e-mail, thanks.

The secret messages hunt, part 1599860 
It's clear we all know by now, the wall features the words "MIMI", "Jack", "SEVENTH".  It seems you're a lot to follow my soap "Cake the secret message hunter" .  Here's today's episode.... I don't know what else you read, but I focused my attention today on the "Platform" well it could be "Maven Platform is...", "Maven" could be for the music game which is more and more trendy since a few months in the HipHop community.  Check it out here.  I'm not gonna claim it is the Maven game for sure, I'm not that full of myself and until Mariah give us more clues (I hope she does ), I think none of us will know for sure what the messages are.

Mariah gives fur to PETA for the homeless
Pelts for the poor
Watch out for some fabulously dressed homeless people - care of Mariah Carey. The prancing popstress took a break from her European tour promoting her multiplatinum disc "The Emancipation of Mimi" to perform in Russia at the birthday party of an anonymous gazillionaire kleptocrat. The tycoon gave her dozens of unwanted fur coats in addition to a seven-figure fee. She doesn't wear fur, so she gave the pelts to PETA to distribute to the homeless, sources say. Here's hoping that animal-rights activists don't add to the homeless fur-wearers' woes by beating them up for donning the stoles.

Hawaii tickets sale postponed 
Mariah Carey In Concert in Hawaii 
On sale Postponed Until Sunday November 13, 2005 - 9:00 a.m. HST
Due to overwhelming interest … Mariah Carey’s management has asked we postpone the on-sale dates of her December 10th and 12th at the University of Hawaii’s Stan Sheriff Center. The performance dates will remain the same.
The postponement allows time for the reconfiguration of the seating of the Stan Sheriff Center to accommodate her new “in the round” performance.
Mariah sees the unique design of the Stan Sheriff Center as chance to have more intimate contact with her audience. The one of a kind … “in the round” performance … on a custom stage … makes every seat in the house … a truly 
once in a life time fan experience.
By naming her album The Emancipation of Mimi and referencing “Mimi”, a nickname only used by those closest to her … she is inviting fans into her life. Her “in the round” performance brings that theme to her new tour and directly to her fans… in performance.

Mariah Emancipated, Again
Will fans buy the same album with four new songs? 
Even after Mariah Carey put out The Emancipation of Mimi, which went on to sell 4 million copies and become the second-best-selling album of 2005, she kept going back into the studio. So on November 15th, Carey is putting her album out again with four new tracks -- as did 50 Cent and the Killers, who revamped hot albums and saw them shoot back up the charts. "We came up with a couple of songs that I wanted to put out," says Antonio "LA" Reid, chairman of Carey's label, Island Def Jam. "My idea was to continue to create demand for the music." 
The Emancipation of Mimi -- Ultra Platinum Edition includes the single "Don't Forget About Us," co-produced by Jermaine Dupri; a remix of "We Belong Together," featuring Jadakiss and Styles P.; the Twista collaboration "So Lonely (One and Only Part 2)," with a new verse by Carey; and the midtempo "Making It Last All Night (What It Do)" featuring Dupri. (A limited-edition version is also available with a bonus DVD of videos.)
Labels have been searching for quick sales boosts for the past five years, when revenues began a steady decline; CD sales are down ten percent so far this year. "If they can take an album that's been successful and add a couple of songs to it, there's a chance there's a Mariah Carey fan going, 'I've got to get this one too,'" says Todd Cavanah, program director for Chicago's B96.3, which put Carey's new "Don't Forget About Us" into heavy rotation.

The hints in "Don't Forget About Us" video part 523644 
Ok, I said I gave up, but we were still talking about it in family, we were all looking at the video, Kinou, my dad, my grandma and I.  By the way, my grandma now wants a wool sweater like the one Mariah wears in the fire place scene .  We all together saw symbolic stuffs, Mariah seems prisoner in a soccer net,  butterfly prisoner in a net,  why soccer?  Soccer.... goal....reach your goal.  Ok, I stop .
We came to a conclusion, the secret messages are not in the video..... yet .  And what if we will only see it when we will put the DVD from the re-issue in our PC .  Wouldn't that be great?
Oh, by the way, Kinou thinks she found it , the messages on the logs are not the same, it's a different one in each fire scene, which means this could be the reason we all saw different messages  and here's the message Kinou would have included: "STOP LEAKING MY JOINTS BITCHES"

It's not always easy living up to the hype when you're one of Jay-Z's hand-picked protégé, but Rihanna has been wearing that title well, even giving Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together" a run for #1 (Mariah took the title, nabbing the #1 spot for 13 weeks, but "Pon de Replay" stayed hot on its heels at #2). Going up against her idol, she says, has been one of the coolest things that has happened since her arrival on the scene.
"I looked up to Mariah a lot and I still do. I admire her as an artist, and to compete with her was a moment I will never forget for the rest of my life," she said.

Michael Jackson charity single almost finished
Hurricane Katrina single due out this month
Michael Jackson has almost finished his Hurricane Katrina charity single, according to his spokesperson.
The star is recording the track in the Middle East, but is using phone and satellite and phone connections to work with the artists involved.
"All that remains is for two or three artists to do their tracks," Jackson's spokesperson Raymone Bain told BBC News. "Michael will then add his vocals. He is now on the fast track and we're happy with the progress." 
As previously reported the record is expected to feature the likes of Mariah Carey , R Kelly , James Brown , Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z. 
Lenny Kravitz , Wyclef Jean and Missy Elliott are now also involved in the project, though due to rewrites the song is no longer called 'From The Bottom of My Heart' . 
Proceeds from the single, due for release this month, will be go to the Bill Clinton-George Bush Katrina Fund , the Push-Excel Hurricane Katrina College Relief Fund and a disaster fund set up by the National Association of Recording Arts and Sciences.

Heroes comment: This needs of course to be officially confirmed.  Remember on October the 16th. I posted that Laura Swanson, senior vice president of publicity for Island Def Jam, the label home of Mariah said: "I don't believe Michael's done any recording for his benefit single. At least not that I've heard of."  Also, the song is not called "From the Bottom of My Heart,"anymore, 'causeStevie Wonder's new album "A Time 2 Love" has a track with that nameand is featured on the CD bundled with a Katrina benefit single, "Shelter in the Rain."

Guys, I officially give up with the hints in the "Don't Forget About Us" video until I'll see a clear version of it on a TV screen.  It seems all fans worldwide are busy searching for the hints, I received several e-mails with nice explanations, but none of them make sense, it needs to be something fans will see without taking a magnifying glass, something you can see while watching the video, without pressing pause.  My hint from yesterday was a good one, but Kinou and I were so tired last night that we were ready to read multiple stuffs, including "fire", now I read "lies" .  Mariah said on a wall guys, so one of the hints is on the wall.  Or maybe there's no hint at all and Mariah thought we were bored and gave us something to do .
Time to vooooooote for "Get Your Number" in Belgium and "Don't Forget About Us" in the US 
This is my hint

Carey hits Stan Sheriff next month
Lets get started with one of the biggest, if not the biggest, musical events of 2005 for the under-40 crowd. Who needs the Eagles when you've got Mariah Carey? 
While the pop superstar enjoyed success this year with "It's Like That," "We Belong Together" and "Shake it Off," all off the album "The Emancipation of Mimi," it will be nice to see Carey perform some of the other hits that helped shape her career. Remember "Vision of Love," "Someday" and the notorious remix of "Fantasy" with Ol' Dirty Bastard? ...

Each his turn, Mariah blasted by UK press, Camilla blasted by US press.....
Cruel US critics blast Camilla's fashion style
The knives were out for Camilla in New York yesterday.
She faced a barrage of personal insults after paying her respects to victims of September 11.  Right from the start of her US tour with Charles, newspaper critics branded her "frumpy".
In a series of vicious attacks she was dubbed "The Horse", the "Royal Bore" - and "The Rottweiler".
And all this from a country notorious for having the worst taste in the world!
One of the most savage onslaughts came from the downmarket New York Post.  The paper ran a front-page picture headlined: "Queen Camilla is New York's Frump Tower."  Last night the Duchess found an unlikely ally in normally acid-tongued chat-show host Joan Rivers.  She said: "Camilla is one of the world's best dressed women and it's ridiculous to say otherwise.  "Just because she doesn't dress like Mariah Carey, it doesn't mean she's a frump. 
"It's not just about what you wear, it's about how you wear it and she pulls it off every time.  "As us New Yorkers say, she's got it."
Camilla attended a reception at the city's Museum of Modern Art in the evening.  She looked regal in a midnight blue, off-the-shoulder dress with a large white lace collar.  But that didn't stop the Post slamming her £2,000 hand- made gown by British designer Anthony Price as frumpy.
Although she made no official comment, insiders admitted the Duchess was bound to have been hurt by the comments.
Not everyone was so mean. Yoko Ono described Camilla and Charles as "beautiful people". 
And billionaire Donald Trump said they were "wonderful".
Many British observers were outraged by the slurs against Camilla - now an official representative of the monarchy.
It is one thing for us to criticise her, but how dare the Yanks join in? It is like someone being rude to your mother.

K9 Magazine offers a download 
Hear Mariah Carey discuss the jet set lifestyle of her ever-so-famous and incredibly popular canine pal, Jack as she also gives a big thumbs up to Jack's starring role alongside her on the cover of K9 Magazine.
Mariah Carey, the world's most successful female recording artist is clearly thrilled with her and Jack's appearance on K9 Magazine. 
Listen to Mariah discussing Jack's fantastic life - did she really hire a chauffeur to drive him 3,000 miles across the country? - as well as some of the starring roles he's picked up for himself - could the superstar Terrier may soon be as famous as his illustrious owner?
In Mariah's exclusive K9 Magazine interview she told us how dogs became her true animal passion after a parrot used to tease her when she was younger.
"My mom always had pets and so there were always animals around and there’s never been a time in my life where I didn’t have a pet. 
I had dogs and cats and even birds. My mom's parrot bit me (laughs) and he used to torment me by saying my name like my mother would when for example she was calling me to come downstairs. 
So in the middle of the night the bird would be shrieking “Mariah!” 
And there it is, Mariah confirms what people have believed for centuries, although all animals are great, it is the dog who truly is man's (and woman's) very best friend.

K9 magazine interview transcript
Hello Mariah, thank you so much for taking the time to speak with us
Tell us about your pets. Names, breeds and ages.
My pet's name is Jack.  He's a Jack Russell who can swim underwater, jump four feet in the air and he is eternally two years old. His full name is Jackson P. Mutley.
Why the full name?
(Laughs) It's kind of a long story.  The name envolved overtime.  I don't even know what the P. stands for but I guess you can imagine.  I don't know.
When did your interest in pets/animals begin and how long have you been a pet owner.
Well my mom always had pets and so there were always animals around and there's never been a time in my life where I didn't have a pet.  I had dogs and cats and even birds.  My moms parrot bit me (laughs) and he used to torment me by saying my name like my mother would when for example she was calling me to come downstairs.  So in the middle of the night the bird would be shrieking " Mariah!".
Your latest album "The Emancipation Of Mimi" has had some fantastic reviews and has been a huge success, what would you say is your favourite track from the album and why?
I have a lot of different favourite tracks because they're all representative of different moods but I really love "Shake It Off".  Obviously, "We Belong Together" has a special significance for me- you know just being the success that it has been and the emotional vibe in the song.  I would also say that my favourite song is "Fly Like A Bird" which is the last song on the album and a favourite because it has a very spiritual message and it's close to my heart.
We've heard your favourite childhood memories are various junior high antics, can you recall a specific moment which you would like to tell our readers?
Well, one time I was 12 years old I dyed my hair orange by mistake and it looked really hideous.  My hair was blonde when I was little but it started getting darker so I started using Sun in which is supposed to bring out in the highlights in your hair.  However, I didn't know about the whole technical side of hair colouring as I hadn't been to beauty school yet.
Anyway, it made my hair kind of orange, so then I tried to correct the colour and went to the store with my friend to buy a golden blonde dye.  I didn't realise though that anything that says gold means it's a red base!  So I used this dye and was blow drying my hair with an orange blow dryer when my friend yelled "Your hair is the colour of the blow dryer!"
I then walked outside and there was this kid there that I had a crush on and he was like "What happened to your hair".  It was a totally bleak moment.  On top of that I had also shaved my eyebrows because I didn't know that you were supposed to tweeze them and the only make up I really had was reject stuff from my mother so I had no eyebrows, hideous make-up with blue eyeliner and orange hair - not a good look (laughs)
In which one way do you believe dogs to be a superor life from humans?
They don't judge others.
Will you ever bring Jack to London?
I would love to but there are rules about quarantine for animals and I don't think that it'd be right to do that to him.  It's 6 months - I'd never do that to him.
Does Jack ever bite or chew your shoes?
Jack doesn't bite shoes - he's very smart and knows better than that.
You've received numerous prestigious awards over the years including two Grammy's, 8 American Music awards and were also named "World's Best Selling Female Artists Of The Millenium" which must have been a huge moment.  How did you fel when you received your very first award and what were the thoughts which went through your mind when your name was called?
I don't think I was fully aware of that moment because so much was going on and I didn't really take it in.  I knew that it was a big deal but it just happened so fast and I was really nervous too.
It was said some time ago on a well known British sit com that the perfect woman have Kylie Minogues's bum, Claudia Schiffer's legs and Cindy Crawford's face.  Using this logic, can you please create your own perfect fantasy dog?
There is no better dog than Jack.  How could you make a dog better than Jack! (laughs)
Tell us about the Relly Award that Jack was recently nominated for?
Well Jack was nominated for this Relly Award on the Regis and Kelly show for Best Non-Human guest.  The nominees were Chewbacca, Miss Piggy, Barney, a two headed albino snake andmy dog Jack.  I thought that it was so cool hat Jack was being nominated for an award and that people all over the world were finally going to be able to see the splendour of him.  So there I was being so excited for Jack and then all of a sudden I found out that Miss Piggy won the award!  I'm really seriously demanding a recount because I think that some trickery went on!!!... (Laughs)
What did Jack do when he was on the show?
Well Jack was with me for an interview.  He's like a person and he just knows when the cameras go on.  He starts hamming it up and jumping up and down.  On Regis and Kelly his personality just shone though, I think that when the viewers saw him on the show they realised that he was special - I mean he received a nomination against mainly fictitious characters.  He was the only real animal - other than the 2 headed snake.
Jack's used to the limelight though and he loves being on set.  He's actually been in quite a few of my videos including "DreamLover", "All I Want For Christmas Is You", "Always Be My Baby", "Honey", "Thank Gof I found You", "Against All Odds" and "Boy I Need You".  He loves walking around the wardrobe department, he likes the dog equivalent of hair and make-up (grooming).  He is a star.
Which do you prefer and why?
Big dogs or little dogs - That's what I love about Jack.  He's like a big dog in a small dog's body.  Also he's very strong and very muscular but small enough that he can lie in a bed and small enough that I can take him out with me easily.
Pedigree dogs or x breeds - It really depends on the dog.
Lead and collar or dog running free - Dog running free but the problem is my dog gets a little excited (laughs) and he needs to have his harness on all the time because you don't want him to choke with the collar.  He happily wears the harness and likes it so if he gets carried away or if he stays in the pool to long it'll help us get him out.
What is your earliest memory of dogs?
When I was little my parents were breding Dobermans and when I was about four the dog had puppies.  I remember all the different puppies.  My parents gave the puppies away but kept one which we called Bruno.
Describe the last time you...
Had to shout at your pet - I try not to shout at him.
Laughed out loud because of your pet - All I have to do is think about Jack and he makes me laugh.  He's hilarious.  Actually I laughed out loud yesterday because my friend Connie said she wanted to meet Jack. She's never met him because she lives here in London.  Anyway when she said this everybody in the room turned around and said - "You don't know Jack?" as if he was you know the most well known person on the face of the earth!  I'm telling you people just love Jack and I'm not saying this because he's my dog.
Trained your pet to do something new - Well we're working on him being more gentle when I hand him a treat. (He got used to me accepting the fact that he's impatient when he wants a treat, and you know, he's got some sharp teeth).  He's just learning to calm down and allow me to give him the treat nicely otherwise he's not going to get it.  He's doing ok too but it depends on his mood...
What is it about Jack's personality that makes him so special?
He is almost like a person, we have this thing where we say Jack is a person because it's like he'll just hang out and want to be almost a part of the conversation - just sitting around and watching.  He's a very spiritual animal, he has a lot of zest and he's fun.  In fact he's almost like a circus dog with all the tricks that he does.  The other side of him is that when he's laying down and you pet him he's very loving.  He's a good dog, a good boy.
What is Jack's favourite toy, activity, game?
Jack is a swimmer so he gets obssessed with anything to do with water even if I'm taking a shower he'll try to knock on the door and come and stand in the shower.  If I'm running a bath all of a sudden I'll hear a spash and Jack will have jumped into the tub!  It's something that's been happening for years and it's like "Jack's in the tub again!" and there he is swimming around!
His favourite toy is the jet inside the pool - like the jets you find in pools and hot tubs.  He treats that as his toy and continiously dives under the water and tries to bite the water coming out of the jet.  As far as other toys go you can't get Jack anything that's too easy to rip apart because he's got very strong teeth.  He has a toy steak.  It's a fake looking T-bone that's really tough to rip apart.  It has lasted a while but I think that it's finally on the way out.
What about Jack's bad habits?
Well...  Lately he's been sneaking out of the gate.  There's a railing on the side of the kitchen in the house in Los angeles and I thought that I could leave him out there so that he could run free in this little area - and he was really enjoying himself running after little geckos and stuff.
Then one day I was out in the back and I see Jack coming out of nowhere and I realise that he had snuck under the fence and run straight for the pool and jumped in.  So now I can't let him stay out there anymore because there are coyotes and things.  Instead he's given supervised pool time.
Who is your hero?
I thought this was about dogs?  Ok Jack's my hero.
Would you describe Jack as a "people-dog"?
Definately.  He loves people.  Sometimes he plays rough as he grew up with Doberman Pinchers and thinks that he's bigger dog than he is.
Finish the following sentence:
My dog is.... The best!

Mariah sweetheart I think I found one of the hints
I watched the video over and over, Kinou and I even watched it frame by frame, we found a butterfly behind the goal, we even saw letters, we saw the number 5 on the ball, we saw on some scenes you didn't wear your butterfly ring, we saw something strange on the log in the fireplace, we searched again and again, it was an obssession .  I think there are several hints, but I still need to figure out the one written on the wall.  Well, should I post what's the first hint I found, if you guys don't wanna see it, close your eyes now.....
Ok, in the fireplace....

Mariah learns humidifier trick from Luther
Pop diva Mariah Carey's penchant for sleeping in a room full of humidifiers the night before a concert is a vocal tip she learned from late soul great Luther Vandross.
The singer has often been ridiculed for her vocal demands, but she insists she has to take care of her voice.
She explains, "I sleep as much as I can the night before (a show). We have to sleep to hit the notes.
"I need humidifiers when I sleep because it's good for my voice. Luther Vandross, God bless him, told me that."

Marilyn Monroe Inspires Mariah To Shed Clothes For New Video
Mariah Carey doesn't want you to forget about her — which is why she's re-releasing her album The Emancipation of Mimi with extra tracks, including her latest single, "Don't Forget About Us," the video for which she just shot in Los Angeles with director Paul Hunter. The clip is an homage to her fans, first loves and, oddly enough, Marilyn Monroe.
First, the fans. Carey says she could have saved the new music that's going to be on the re-release of "Mimi" (see "Mariah Carey Emancipating Mimi Again, With Bonus Tracks"), but that would mean we'd be waiting for a least "a couple of years" before we'd get to hear anything on a new album, and where's the fun in that?
Her label head, L.A. Reid, loved "Don't Forget About Us" so much, she said, that he convinced her to speed up the process and get a few tracks out now. (In addition to "Don't Forget About Us," there's also three other new songs: "What It Look Like," "So Lonely [One and Only Part 2]" and a remix of "We Belong Together" featuring Jadakiss and Styles P.) A further nod to the fans are secret messages on a wall in the video for "Don't Forget About Us," "like we did in 'Shake It Off,' " she said, that only the diehard can decipher. "See if they figure it out! It's a sort of thank you to the fans."
The secret messages wouldn't be that much fun, though, if they didn't connect to something relatable, and in this case, it's true love. "It's basically a love song, saying to somebody, 'There was something good, don't forget about it!' " Carey explained.
"Each song has, not necessarily a different message, but a different mood, a different feeling," she continued. "It evokes something different depending on who listens to it and at what time. 'Don't Forget About Us' could give you a good, happy memory, or you could be miserable, crying, listening to it over and over. All in all, I think it's good to have music you can live vicariously through, and that's what a lot of people have told me this record has been for them."
Carey picked Hunter to helm the clip, after last teaming up with him on 1997's "Honey," which she calls one of her favorite videos. "I was always like, 'I wish I could do something like "Honey" again,' " she said. So together they dreamed up scenarios where Carey luxuriates in her home, on a beach, in a car and on a soccer field, as she reminisces about the one who got away, interspersed with flashbacks of happier times, as the onetime couple canoodles in their former hangouts. One such scene takes place in a pool, as an older — and possibly nude — Mariah sings with one leg up on the edge, as a younger, swimsuited Mariah frolics with her beau in flashbacks.
"That shot was totally and completely inspired by 'Something's Got to Give,' Marilyn Monroe's last movie that never got finished," she explained. "It's an homage to her, because I've never seen anyone re-create it. So many people have emulated so many of Marilyn's classic moments, but it's just that I'm a big fan of hers, and I thought it was really pretty at night with the pool. No one could ever be as fabulous as Marilyn was, but it's in honor and homage to her."
Carey will open the American Music Awards with her first live performance of "Don't Forget About Us" on November 22 at 8p.m. on ABC.

Heroes comment: Indeed, first in "It's Like That", now in "Don't Forget About Us", there are always little Marilyn parts, but in "Don't Forget About Us" it's not only an hint, it's an homage.

Why Mariah was not disguised
Open All Night writes: "That evening we hit Bette Midler’s annual Hulaween Ball, which doubled as her 60th birthday party and was of epic proportions. Dressed as a rose, Bette received birthday greetings from costumed guests including Martha Stewart, Glenn Close, Eartha Kitt, Martin Short, and Sting and Trudie Styler. A devilishly attired Elton John entertained the crowd. Mariah Carey said she didn’t don a costume thanks to the unflattering press coverage of the bridal getup she wore last year"
