Reading this forum gives such an interesting insight into scapegoating culture.
Yes Stella is garbage when it comes to being a manager. She's unprofessional and clearly not fit to handle a legend. But some people are just using her as an outlet for mariah's own failings.
Stella isn't the reason mariah gave such a half-assed show and I'm sure she didn't force feed mariah into putting on weight (not like that should be a bad thing anyway). Stella didn't produce I Don't and tell her to do nothing but touch herself in the video. It isn't her making her work with the same producers and rappers. Stella didn't introduce her to James nor Bryan.
Mariah's been making the same mistakes she has done lately before Stella came around. The diva attitude, recent lack of innovation, the drinking, the tacky side projects, whatever it is the fans have complained about have all been pre-existing problems. Has she helped the situation? No, but Mariah has her own agency to sack her and choose a better team.
Stella has basically become a figurehead for everything Mariah is doing wrong herself. In the past it was Nick, JD, Randy Jackson, IDJ, Chris Lighty, The Dream, Virgin etc. Why is it always everyone elses fault but hers?
Of course, Mariah is the creative and she needs a good team around her. She can't do everything. But for someone who's supposedly so in control of everything she does and for someone with as much business insight as her - she needs to choose the right team and get rid of the people who aren't cutting it. She was more than happy to cut people after the NYE debacle. The onus is on her.
