Tampa Bound this morning to see Mariah. She's staying at the Westin! Went to the bar there. No luck! Boo! I'm gonna guess she's sleeping after going to the after party in FYI and having to travel to Tampa for tonight. I tried though!
Have fun! :D

Mariah was paid with air-kisses during her first 3 albums. After Music Box she demanded more money per album.

Mariah was closed to being dropped when her 2nd album flopped with 4x Platinum. She really needed Music Box and her international break in order to become Tommy's alltime #1.
I would love to know more about Mariah's music contracts, How many album's did Sony sign her for? and i remember Mariah talking about having to give A LOT of HER profits to Ben Margulies because of a dodgy contract :(
Where did u get this dropped info Stevyy?

From what I heard, they renegotiated the Margulies deal after the first album to 10% for the remaining albums.

This performance is a hot mess and I love it. Can't believe it's been 10? years since this.

Exactly, THIS!!!
I think "I Only Wanted" outsold tho, but that song is very special for me so maybe I'm not being objective enough.
I Only Wanted is one of my favorites. i remember hearing for the first time . Wow, at the control of her voice in that particular song :o

Caramel is my favorite color for Mariah's hair as well, and a normal length, around the brest . It moves more

I understood that Warners was on the table for 300K...then Sony took it over at 350K

that marguilies got 50% off the first and then 10% cut on cuts he was on after that?

so, maybe he still gets 50% off MC still? MAYBE THAT IS why we don't hear that stuff?

I read somewhere that Mariah was still paying a percentage of her sales to Ben ( i think ) during Rainbow era ??? she talked about not being as rich as she should be because of signing a bad contract when she was young.
found it.. this is from an interview in July 2001.
When 17-year-old Mariah Carey put pen to paper on her first record deal she had no idea she was signing away half her earnings for the next 13 years. Incredibly Mariah, now 31, found herself on the brink of ruin - despite selling 120million albums in ten years, more than any other female artist.
She says: "I was in financial trouble. I made some serious mistakes. Of course I am wealthy in most people's reality and the reality of what I grew up with. But for the amount of records I've sold it's nowhere near what people think, because of the deal I signed at 17 and because of things I did in my personal life. It effectively meant that I was giving away half of my artist's royalties. Basically until my last album, Rainbow, I was giving my money to someone else.
I think the label got her out of the bad deal, but she still had to give him ten percent of what she made while she was with Columbia. Way better than half.

"Carey's relationship with Margulies deteriorated over a personal contract Carey had signed with him before signing the record deal with Columbia, agreeing to split not only the songwriting royalties from the songs, but half of her earnings as well. However, when the time came to write music for Emotions, Sony officials made it clear he would only be paid the fair amount given to co-writers on an album. Margulies later filed a lawsuit against Sony which ultimately led to their parting of ways.

In the following year, however, Carey’s and Margulies’ collaboration ended over a financial dispute. Before recording their demo, Carey had signed a contract that entitled Margulies to half the proceeds she made from any recordings involving his material, in addition to songwriting royalties. According to one of Carey's biographers,

Sony’s lawyers stepped in, and after a long and often bitter court battle that dragged on for over a year, both sides reportedly agreed that Ben would receive ten percent of Mariah’s earnings over the next ten years. Mariah would look back on the falling out with Ben as a painful learning experience. “Be careful what you sign,” she said in a Q magazine interview. “I heard that a thousand times. But when you’re struggling, you still do it. I blindly signed.” In the aftermath of the court battle, Ben would discuss the situation diplomatically, putting the lion’s share of the blame on the record label and saying that he hoped Mariah and he could work together again in the future. The reality is that a five-year friendship and creative partnership that had produced some wonderful music had been destroyed. The two never worked together again, and, in fact, had no contact whatsoever."

Considering that he's talked crap about her ever since, I'd say that Mariah came out on top in the end.

poor Marguilies...he never did anything again......to my knowledge

he was trying to work Lisa LV into another Mariah Dog N Pony show...and poor LL seems to have a pretty fried vocal as well....CORRECTION!!! Not fried!! but very different now..very STRONG!!


the locals told me he's pretty nasty...but I've never met the guy...so can't say

...its really sad that he would do that to Mariah at the beginning...if he would of been reasonable and adjusted the "contract" he "acquired" from a "minor",,,they probably could of gone forward to this day....very sad what greed does to so many
