  • This just came out, it's an incredible segment. I love the middle presenter, she used to work with Mariah apparently or part of her extended team.

    Encapsulates what most lambs are feeling. She is indeed a "Saint". Can we launch an application for Mariah's sainthood for saving our lives during Covid-19?

    • I think the interview was ok, though it didn’t shine like Oprah’s for different reasons.

      On one side, this is a morning show, it’s just a fastest, more edited piece. There’s not much time to build the momentum.

      The hardest part is the fact that is she was asked really personal and difficult questions. It’s not the same talking about an album that about your mother, who you have issues with. Mariah has always been really quiet and respectful. One thing is to write carefully your story and something really different is to say out loud your opinions and criticism about your mother. It doesn’t matter how respectful she is, I guess it was not easy at all.

      If wouldn’t mind if her team would review the questions previously or if she gave more generic questions about her family. It would be less painful (i guess) to lead people towards the book. In the end, Patricia has never talked public about Mariah like Alison and Morgan did. Despite Mariah has always talk mostly good things about her. Going so deep into personal issues has to be really tough. If I were Mariah I wouldn’t do it.

      Something else I noticed that made me sad was when Gayle asked her if she’ll love again (I can’t remember the exact question), Mariah didn’t acknowledge Brian. I don’t know what kind of relationship they have, so maybe there’s nothing to acknowledge, but it was sad to me.

Nobody is ever going to be a perfect interviewer, because different styles can be divisive. For example, I LOVE Diane Sawyer’s interviewing style, but some people may find her cold. It all depends on the individual viewer. But to write off a whole interview because you felt the interviewer didn’t respect Mariah? They’re not fans, they’re journalists. And also, with COVID, editing is always going to cause Mariah’s responses to seem a little choppy. That’s okay. As long as she’s getting her message across, which is a proclamation of her freedom as a fully realized human being. It takes a lot of a courage to put yourself out there like that, and whether it’s with Gayle, Oprah or Jane, the humanizing effect of these in-depth interviews do wonders in getting the general public to understand the authentic Mariah.

        I’m so excited to start listening to the audiobook tonight!!!!!!! Hoping it’s up at midnight EST time! And I’m so excited for The Rarities!!! And omg, I LOVE Someone’s Ugly Daughter. I’ve been playing Malibu, Demented, Prom Queen and Freak nonstop. Mariah and Clarissa’s pen game and musicianship are next level.

        We’re such a blessed fan base!!!!!


        Gayle is cut out for doing hard news, not entertainment coverage or celebrity interviews. Her personality just doesn't match what she's doing, and there's nothing wrong with that. I don't see anything wrong with reacting to an obvious mismatch of subject and interviewer. Mariah and Gayle have known each other for decades, so perhaps Gayle went too far in being detached in her professional capacity this time.

        The interview itself was serviceable, but Gayle had no life in her. She never does, which works when you're covering serious topics and speaking to important people like Nancy Pelosi, but for human interest stories or celebrity interviews such as this one, you need to have lots of personality and a soft touch. Gayle doesn't employ these when she's in her "reporter" groove, and that was on full display here. It's not enough to be nice and to lsiten. You have to be personable, and Gayle doesn't bring that when she

        I was a public affairs aficianado in my former professional life. Scheduling interviews for my bosses and setting them up with affable and capable interviewers a huge part of my job, so perhaps I am looking at it through that lens. I still do media relations consulting when asked, so I think that's why I didn't particularly care for this one.

                  I listened to it probably for the 3rd time, it's really not as bad as I thought orginally.

                      • Does Mariah mention Luis or Mark in the book? It's funny, in the Gayle interview, she didn't mention she was with Bryan, when Gayle asked her about being open to love. #boytoy
