  • Yay, it’s coming ! I’m taking a moment to take it in: this is a milestone in her career. I always wanted to read a memoirs of hers, and now it’s practically here.

    The title: I like it, I think it would have been catchier as The Meaning Of Mariah , with an alliteration in M and that’s it. However, I understand if their strategy was to brand her artist name, which makes sense of course.

    The picture: I’m ok with it ! Apart her right hand holding up four fingers, the colors are pretty, and it’s a nice shot. I would have perhaps chosen a more pensive picture...

    Also, I like he fact that her Co writer (i assume that’s who Michaela Angela Davis is) is displayed on the cover. Many artists use ghost writers or seldomly credit the people who helped them out but as a writer herself, I applaud that. If it’s her co-writer of course. I would be curious to know more about their collaboration process.

    Audiobook: As a singer, Mariah’s voice is an incredible instrument, so it only makes sense that she records an audio version of her book. And the fact that she may include musical elements to it is genius !

    It already sounds like a super project, I really cannot wait !

      • That cover looks great! It looks kinda weird that there are two huge “MARIAH CAREY” on the cover though.

          To avoid any upset, please note; anything I post is purely my opinion. If I feel it is a fact, I will state that I feel it is a fact. Lol.

            • I was hoping for a different kind of picture for the cover but I guess it works anyway. So excited!! I can't wait to read her experience and how she feels about different parts of her career.

              Bring it on!

              • Cover is ok. She looks nice. They didn't really need Carey in the title again though " The Meaning of Mariah" would have been simpler and catchier if they choose that route. Having her full name on the cover twice is kinda unnecessary. But really looking forward to the book.

                • Michaela Angela Davis is a great choice.
                  i feel she will do a great job telling Mariah's story

                    so the 30th Anniversary debut will coincide with the book release.

                                              I think there's a purpose to it i.e. 'Mariah Carey' is a brand that has no doubt felt disconnected from her at times and that certainly at one time was not under her control but 'Mariah Carey' is also a person so she's here to reassert it's meaning.

                                                  I'm convinced that Mottola has more than anything to do with it. I believe that his tactics to get her airplay made the industry insiders jealous. In later years they simply did not care for her anymore.

                                                  If anyone else released Caution - as it is - it would have gotten that damn R&B album Grammy.

                                                    I don't understand how someone can call something irrelevant and boring yet continue to submit your work for consideration. Makes no sense to me. Like if you really think that why would you then basically ask for their validation ?

                                                  Why do you say later years when she was snubbed for Emotions and Music Box also?
                                                  That is the one thing that I never quite understand about the outrage that she was snubbed in 1996. Like she left empty handed every year except for the first year. So she was clearly never a Grammy darling anyway
