Speaking of Lambs, what is Mariah's relationship with Tamar ?

I seem to recall Mariah being appreciative, just dont remember the context.

The Performance was visually pure art. Like a moving & singing Picasso painting.

Tamar did attend (and meet) Mariah's 1st residency in Vegas and MC mentioned she like "Love & War". :wink:

Interesting Mariah has NEVER mentioned Toni Braxton at ALL. :lol:

I think it's nice of us to imagine if Ariana gives a way for her fans to listen to Mariah by promoting her, but the truth is, Ariana has never been a true Lamb to begin with. You did not refer to Mariah as the queen vocalist at one point and completely erased her from your 'taste' of 'favorite singers' until recently, just because the Lambily attacked you less nowadays. We, Lambily, have always been too forgiving to those who aren't truly nice toward Mariah. We often lowered the bar that Mariah had set for her own standard just to make Mariah 'more relatable' or 'more liked' by the ever-growing population & new generation that blossomed each decade.

I think not all of us realize how high Mariah is in term of artistry and integrity. The fact that Mariah even released songs like GTFO and With You and few other songs before 2018 that all stayed in one genre: R&B, actually put Mariah in the place where not that many people can touch. Mariah, unlike many other stars we're witnessing today, has proved herself to be an authentic and original figure in music and recording history. She never hopped on one trend that's currently popular just because she wanted an easy hit, instead she took her time to make hits by her own (and with the help of the talented people around her too).

My friend and I loved Mariah in the 1990s but she hasn’t paid attention since really... I just told her Mariah had a new song, sent her it and thought she was gonna say “not a fan” but she “loved it!” Described it as “very 90s Mariah but modern too”
She also said “bloody ell, she hasn’t aged a day!”

She also said “I didn’t know she was releasing new stuff anymore”

Mariah needs to promote here! This is why she doesn’t chart. Nobody knows about it.

It's not that serious. :roll: While I don't think Mariah was "rude" to her, I think it's completely understable that she was hurt and/or put off by the whole "Mariah shades Ariana" thing. Even if Mariah did not necessarily shade her, I know I'd be hurt if my idol refused to adknowledge me.

I think it was all a big misunderstanding on both parts, though. And I don't think there's any real bad blood between them.

I agree, Ariana let her own ego get in front of the truth. And it is sad indeed. I wont support her until she truly repents.

I think this is a situation that plagues most artists that have been around a couple decades or more. There is so much ageism in radio now, and MTV/VH1 have no real pull with the GP at this point. There aren't a lot of effective methods for artists to reach beyond their base (at least directly with the music). Good to see Mariah trending on YT, that can be a way of getting it out there.

This is insanity. Y’all saw her as a threat and she never was one.

Mariah sacrificed her art early on not by choice too
She was very vocal about it like Ariana is being now about all of the Max Martin singles she doesn’t like

Of course she will never be the legend Mariah is, or possess the same talent and sheer star power, so get over it!

I love seeing women support women, and Ariana never said a mean thing about Mariah in her life

I'm a bit late but I have been catching up, had to go through a gazillion new pages (meltdowns included).

I love the video so much, I mean... How beautiful does she look? Love the fact it's black and white, amazing cinematography, different looks (wet hair look is everythiiiing) and super classy. Just exactly what I have been wishing from her.

Her smile after she sings into the hair brush <3

I don't think Mariah has ever been intentionally mean to any artists (let alone person).

She has always reacted to people disrespecting her which has been uncalled for, or for tabloid fodder.

I feel bad now because I was just explaining my opinion about the whole "oooh Ariana stans Mariah again let them meet" thing that has been here for like, last few pages back. But BreathlesslyFervid's statement is truly concerning for me.

Mariah doesn't need to be celebrated like God. Let us just celebrate her as a human being that actually makes good music and have different sets of standard that is really different with the young stars we have post-2010.

Because she's not a mean/rude person naturally. The only time she treated people a bit differently was when motherfucking Stella managed her. I'm happy we don't see that woman again near Mariah.

She's offering a concert the 13th and she's back at the end of the month with the tour. I feel she wants her Japanese fanbase back

To get the Rich Asians Back! Kidding :P But I think it was already booked before the plan of releasing the single and album.

Ariana is not a threat. Who sees her as a threat? Nobody except those who feel inclined to commercial success. I do not.
We never know whether Ariana will be considered as a music legend by the future generation, so I'm not going to say something like you said. Ariana never said any mean words about Mariah? Yup. Because she didn't talk, she often liked people who talked negatively about Mariah prior to 2018. The most famous one was when she liked Demi's 'shady' comments against Mariah in late 2015 (or was it early 2016?).
