  • Now some say she was tipsy when she fell off in the #B remix video. We've never heard of it, but it's allowed to speculate about this just because someone believes it.
    "She used to drink too much", well, it's true she used to have a glass of champagne or wine, but we don't know the amount of alcohol she drinks lol
    The goal is to blame her about everything lol instead of trying to understand her situation, her struggles and feel some sympathy.

But I get that she was struggling with her marriage at the time so, as a fan, I give it leeway.
      But I don’t think the public think like that.
      Re idol, there were moments she was silly ( that video of them all being interviewed,and she’s desperate for the camera to only catch her best side), but overall, I think she looked great, gave good advice most of the time, and showed a nice side of herself.
      The problem, imo, was Idol pushing the Nicki and Mariah hate storyline. It was a big mistake on their behalf, that didnt pay off for either Idol or Mariah, and was stupid considering they only had reason to be friends, and the financial success of UOMF was worth faking it for, if anything.
      What financial success for UOMF? The song peaked at 100 on the Hot 100. The video had good numbers but thats all.
      As for Nicki and Mariah, it was indeed a mistake to push this and I wonder what really happened for them to be in such bad terms at the time

        Idol was a missed opportunity overall, she could have been on top of the world had the album been released during it and if she hadn’t fall later on but it is what it is… the mess that was her private life surely played a big part in this
        It's the 1st time I've read something like this. I'm with you it wasn't the public perception neither the lambs during those days. Lambs complained about her rambling

        • It’s also the first time I see this. I was watching every week the Idol live and never got this impression, nor the lambs I was talking too at the time. I didn’t mind about her rambling either. I thought she was great during Idol

          • First time I am hearing this as well.

            Yes, she rambled but she got much sharper and gave critiques that were echoed by other judges as well.

            In the end, she mentioned that there were some behind the scenes things that were untoward.

            Anyways, I see Michaela is posting that she is writing a lot. Im secretly hoping it's with Mariah as I would love another book from her.

            • I would love a part 2 of her memoirs as well. She has so many stories to tell!

              • I think it’s too soon for a sequel of the book. Maybe in 10 years.

                about 2012-13 I think she had everything in her hands to have a nice comeback, she had the biggest platform with AI, she had an amazing song that people, even the GP, seem to enjoy; she was in a great shape and looking healthy and happy. But I remember when she started doing live performances everything was going down with all the diva behavior that didn’t look good, all the lipsynching scandals. The AÍ finale was a disaster, everybody wa so it focus on her lipsynch performance, and the channel aired out of sync (because she recorded several takes and then edit with best parts) and it looked like she wasn’t singing live.

                about the tipsy I don’t recall her being drunk on AI, but people seem to get bored with her rambling too much and losing focus when she started talking too much. It would’ve been amazing if Nicki wasn’t on the panel or if they got along well it would be a totally different scenario. But it was amazing to have Mariah weekly on air for several hours. I miss that

                  Maybe another memoir in 5 - 10 years. But she could release the memoir with new chapters in the interim. Or, a book targetted towards children. She had also mentioned wanting to write a cook book at some point, but maybe she wouldn't enjoy it as much. Who knows!

                  Gabrielle Union did her memoir in 2017 and a children's book in 2020. Now she's out with a new memoir in 2021.

                  I think publishers love working with creative folks like MC. It's also a good way for MC to expand her reach.

                  • Wow. All this talk is really making me nostalgic for the 2013-2014 era. As much as MIAMTEC is far from my favourite album, there really was a lot to enjoy musically. We even got Almost Home and then that period where new #Beautiful remixes were being churned out each week. Love when there’s constant new music being cranked out by Mimi! Hope we get another era like it.

                        I still enjoy the Jeezy version with the DJ Mustard reworking. It’s a bit more party ready than the og.

                          I think we always forget that she has bipolar disorder and that some of her decisions were/are caused by her mood swings.

                                  • Not sure the fan-only video will inspire much recurrent streams, but hopefully it signals to radio to continue to play it. Would be nice if fans put together a mini-campaign to support the song though.

                                    • Mariah wasn’t drunk on Idol. She actually took that job seriously, but she had a clown sitting 3 ft away from her. Every week I’d read the AI facebook page and 99% of the negative comments were about how unprofessional Nicki was.

                                      This maybe unpopular, but I hope she can be a judge on a t.v. show again. Maybe it could be Christmas based?

                                      yes! Get Mariah on the phone!!! Someone is going to steal this idea. A 4 or 5 week xmas singing competition. The winner would release a christmas ep and have a xmas duet with Mariah on it. I don’t think it could be live voting because of holiday time restraints. It could film in July and the EP would be out in November.

                                      Patty Labelle, Randy Jackson, Mariah & someone who middle America appeals to.

                                        I dont think it needs to be Christmas based at all.

                                        If you listen to her comments on idol, they were all technical and involved a great deal of producing notes. Mariah at times reminded me of a professor who is so specialist in their craft that they sometimes find it difficult to break down what they are trying to teach. She butt heads with more than Nicki, but with Jimmy Iovine because she thought he was giving the wrong notes to the contestants. She is much better suited and more comfortable with this sort of thing.

                                        Nonetheless, we have also seen her do tv shows since Idol, like the guest judge on The Voice and she did an amazing job.

                                        I think she is better suited and would be an amazing coach on The Voice. She would only need to consider taking a massive pay cut.

                                          Plus Almost Home as the first single in Europe. It would have taken her back to the European charts if she had done a little promo here.

                                          And how good it would have been if we hadn't had that awful rap destroying the intro of YDKWTD. Sometimes it's no good to wait too long.

                                          Having the album released with #Beautiful on the charts would have been better than wait a year.

                                                • We also have to consider that the original plan was to release the album on July 23, 2013 and album sales are usually lower on the summer. Pretty sure that MIAM/TAOLG would've sold more copies if released on 2013 instead of late may 2014 (). But really, how much better it could've done? Let's remember that radio dropped #B quite rapidly and it started dropping on the charts after that. I don't know if single #2 would've done better than YM in february 2014. It's all speculation at the end because we don't know the full plans the label had for the album.

                                                  Also, who remembers that stream before the album release when Mariah and JD were talking about promoting it on an air ballon?

                                                    Thank you for posting this because, even though I usually watch everything, I had somehow missed that. Wonderful performance.

                                                    This song means so much to me and I am happy MC loves it too and performs it every so often. It has helped me and thousands of others plenty over the years. I love it, I love you Mariah.
