    I really love it.
    I like the OG, but I'm glad she changed it for the paperback version.
    She's gonna feed us again this year, it seems!
    Take our money, bish!

      Also I'd like to know when the split happened exactly (and how!).
      I guess it was around July '17.
      But I wanna know the detalils



      I'm totally here for it!
      There's lots of "big" performances that we don't have footage from, especially from Debut/Emotions Era.
      That would be a real treat.

      Regarding that performance, I love how in TMOM she impersonates the man who presented her and the lil whistle, LOL.



      LMAOOO
      EAI had all of the damn tea on the end of Mariah's relationship with Stella, lol. He said one of the girls Stella brought on (her niece, I think) messaged him after he pieced everything together in an IG comment. Things starting going south in April, but it was all a wrap by August. Thank God.

        Agreed - looks like the book will have more depth!

          In terms of managing an album era, Melissa did not do much better then Stella, who at least had MC on the hot 100 two times (2015 & 2017). And two music videos that gathered more streams then all three from the Caution era. I am not counting AIWFCIY which will forever comeback on the chart. At least Mariahs image was 1000x better while with Melissa (or roc nation).

          I would take Melissa over Stella any day, but I would take Jay & roc nation over Melissa just the same.
          I think at this point there is very little any manager can do to change the hot 100 situation. It's all about the legacy and public image now and that improved so much. But I dunno, it just seems that with Mariah there is always some disagreement or another going on with someone.

            The Rarities, Christmas soundtrack and Caution all entered the charts. Also, dont take AIWFCIY and Merry Christmas re-entering as a given. Rumour had it that Sony was NOT willing to work with Stella.
            Well I mean Mariah is not going to miss the album charts but I was personally a bit disappointed by the rarities showing on the charts. IMO that Xmas soundtrack was really not needed at all.

            • Im not going to defend Stella as I think she was pure trash. Even if Mariah had a fiercer attitude during that partnership which was cool to see.

              But I will say in terms of singles that were released, the Stella managed singles fared much better than anything Melissa did with Mariah. I just hope Mariah can find some success in the future with her single releases.

                i don’t was really the only single pushed in the Stella era. It did well due to publicity from a) the backlash over NYE and b) the false narrative over her burning the Mottola dress.

                infinity was released just as Stella era was starting so I wouldn’t really count that …

                  The Rarities wasnt promoted at all though so how much better could it have done?

                  It made it to the year end sales chart, which is more than reasonable.

                  I agree the xmas album was not necessary but I enjoyed the fact that she did it and the fact that the Apple Special centred entirely around it. To me, had the special existed and we didnt have a soundtrack it wouldve felt like something was missing.

                    Domo! We loved her!

                    Melissa is amazing, she can find new A&R

                    Maybe Taylor James who did the last Bieber album that is doing so well?

                    Ain’t difficult in terms of who MC should work with, just listen to playlists

                    We had Blood Orange slash Dev on wish lists for years

                    Other obvious ones, look em up on Genius:

                      Well I don't think it's true to say it wasn't promoted at all. She had Save the day, Out here on my own, it was talked about in interviews, she has that tennis thing. I thought it would have at least made the top 20.

                        Fair. Different expectatons I guess.

                        • Way better cover. This should have been the hardcover pic and the OG could have been saved for the paperback.

                          Mariah has always been known for picking the absolute best album cover pics (minus MOAIA & MIAMTEC) so it’s frustrating that she choose such a bad picture for her original memoirs.

                          • I dont think the original cover is bad.

                            I can understand from a PR point of view wanting a "current" picture of Mariah on the cover - for the casual buyer. But I would've used a new pic.

                                  I know, but I want to hear/read/know it from Mariah's perspective.
                                  Perhaps in TMOM 2.0

                                  Yeah, she was done with that b!tch when the ATH started in July.

                                  I agree.

                                  Infinity was done before Stella. And it was meh to say the least.
                                  I Don't charted just 'cause a PR stunt (the dress, James).

                                  Both spent 1 week at #80-ish, which means nothing anyway.

                                  GTFO would've done a lil better if released on a Friday probably.

                                  The only good thing about Infinity was the Vegas Residency.

                                  I personally enjoyed the Xmas Soundtrack and pulled some numbers.
                                  Glad they did it.

                                    I love the idea of current Mariah in the front with lil Mariah on the back with their hair "connected", it was a cute touch.
                                    Also I'd have preferred a new pic, but the one they used it was great - it was from the shoot for the Billboard Magazine '19 - and with all the things she was doing atm and the little time she had I can understand. Plus she looked like her 100%-self which is already great in itself LOL.

                                          The timing - it came out of the blue, months later that she left - also didn't help to make it reliable for me, zero proofs.

                                          Time will tell tho!

                                            • Gawd, love her vibrato so much. It's the perfect balance in terms of speed.

                                              Plus she can use it properly in every register/part of her voice.

                                              I whish the user would've added clips from her lower register. I love her vibrato in the D3-F#3 area.

                                                Yeah, like months ago!

                                                But I agree, we want new music bring it, gurl

                                                She's been recording for months now.

                                                I'm not expecting an album but - apart of the Somewhat Loved track - she has new material!
