Just a year and a half after her epic third solo LP, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, Gwen Stefani is back with brand new music. The singer, 48, dropped her Christmas album, You Make It Feel Like Christmas, which features six new tracks along with standards like “Jingle Bells” and “Silent Night,” earlier this month. “I love the idea of being a part of the joy of Christmas,” Stefani tells EW. “And I love the idea of having a record that will be an annual thing. I really hope we hit on something that people want to hear every year. That would be the fantasy: to be Mariah Carey.”
The daffodils look lovely today. RIP Dolores

Thank to this thread and everyone loving Memoirs here, I’m rediscovering MOAIA
I used to think of it as just 4 or 5 random songs which I used to pick leaving the rest behind
Now it’s working for me as a whole work of art.

She's serving MIAM vocals here tho :lol:

Same! This one is so fun. I think she did great sounded like little Mike. I had mixed feelings about it when it first came out but I love it
Vocally and production-wise, this is how I imagine Lil Snowman will sound like.
Good call tbh, you're probably spot on
Definitely, didn't think about it when I posted it LOL but I thought it could sound something like that in terms of chipmunk-ish vocals :lol:

The remix doesn't sound like her 2005 vocals on TEOM tho, more like the TAOM dubbing in any case :lol: (well not that bad, but still quite chimpunk-ish) I hear MIAM vocals tbh (and not the natural ones). It kinda works for this particular remix tho.

Derek Jeter would've been ideal but Bryan a rat??? And tommy above Bryan hun tommy is gross af and always has been.
Brian's hot but in a short term way, Jeter is more like wife me up
Tommy is like let me go vomit instead, Mark is generic
Luis Miguel is a total mess, and Tommy and James were the worst. Nick is childish and a cheater, so nope. I liked Mark, he was very reserved. But they're old news.

Bryan seems like a nice dude, and I like the relationship he has with dem babies, especially with Roe, in the pics or vids they're always playing and laughing. Plus he's hot haha. They make a great couple IMO. And they've been dating for a while now, we know all started during the SSF Tour when they were flirting all the time 8-)

Bish has some kind of obsession with Mariah. Trying to break the American market using R&B, sunflowers and even the Rainbow image on her tank top. :lol:

Mariah Carey #1s Tour: Coastal hotel north of Brisbane confident it can host megastar

As Sydney, Melbourne and Perth prepare for the arrival of Mariah Carey's big Australian tour, a suburban hotel an hour outside of Brisbane is confident it can handle the logistics of hosting the megastar — and is spending big bucks to make it happen.

The best-selling female artist of the 1990s is bringing her #1s Tour to Australia in February, performing at the Melbourne Showgrounds, Parramatta Park and Perth Arena.

But the choice of Queensland venue, the Sandstone Point Hotel north of Brisbane near Bribie Island, has surprised many given it is relatively unknown and an hour outside the CBD.

Previously a rural property, the $30 million pub and restaurant development opened about two years ago, and has been hosting concert crowds of 3,000–6,500 people on a stage on a grassy knoll.

It's hoping to put its name on the map as a premier venue as it hosts its first act on a larger stage, for potentially 10,000 people.

Sandstone Point Hotel owner Robert Comiskey is confident the hotel can pull it off.

"This will be the first time we use our large stage," he said.

"I don't think there will be a problem. The infrastructure is there.

"We will bring in external site managers who are used to dealing with this every day.

Mr Comiskey is no stranger to ambitious projects, having also turned the Eatons Hill Hotel into a popular live music venue in Brisbane's outer suburbs.

"When we built Eatons Hill people said 'that won't work, it is not in the city'. It wasn't easy, and it was a hard road, but we've proven it works," he said.

"We will make sure everything is nailed off, 100 per cent, and get it right the first time."

Mr Comiskey said a promoter approached the Sandstone Point Hotel about hosting Carey.

"It was designed to have big stars like this," he said.

"It was always going happen. It's just what star was going to happen.

"We hope it sells as much as possible. Last time she was in Brisbane she sold around 10,000 [tickets] so probably something around there."

He said he did not know how much Carey was paid per gig, but guessed the tour would bring in millions.

But an event of this scale is not without logistical challenges, and the hotel is spending upwards of $250,000 on infrastructure to host the concert.

For example, the main road leading into the venue for the last kilometre is currently single-lane — something which will need to change.

"We will have a staggered start, good traffic management, planning and signage and making sure we have adequate parking on site which we do," he said.
The stage and sounds system alone can cost up to $120,000.

"And it is not just the stage; it is the toilets, tents, fencing, paramedics, police, traffic management. You are talking hundreds of thousands to set up for one day," he said.

"If you don't do it well, everyone knows about it straight away. Not many people are forgiving if they have to wait or if car parking is an issue."

Mr Comiskey said despite the high costs of hosting Carey, the numbers did stack up.

"We do the numbers and make sure the risk is satisfactory, and if we think the risk if too high we pass. We've passed on many deals because we think the risk is just too high for that artist," he said.

You know the best thing about this pic is that it was taken just a few days before the release of TEOM. Mariah knew that she had a Hurricane under her sleeves

Mariah looked so classy that night (I guess that was the time she said she's not gonna show lots of skin but things turned around quickly when Shake It Off came out. :lol:) But I guess they've all moved on, so..

The next photo that I'd like to see is Mariah shaking hands with JLo. That would end famine, world war 3 and postpones end of the world in another 3000 years. :lol: :lol: :lol:
