I remember an article that I read in which Mariah referred to Babydoll as the main framework of the entire Butterfly album, meaning all the other songs were conceptualized based on the theme, melody, and sound of Babydoll. It deserves more attention. :)

Melt Away is sexy too. After Tonight, So Lonely & Babydoll as well. And Bliss, of course.

Is there any real orange clouds in reality or is it merely metaphor? I'm reminded by your username to that line of Close My Eyes out of the blue. Anyway, that is why Babydoll is so good to me. Because even if we got the version with all the proper hip hop production, take that all away and Babydoll is literally a masterpiece that only surpassed by Fourth of July and Breakdown. We have to take away songs like My All, Close My Eyes, Butterfly, and Outside from here because they're not in the same category as those three sensual songs. Babydoll channeled an adorable picture of a sexually frustrated MC, which is very rare at the time and that picture still transcends till now to me.
I'm sure there's a metaphor in there (lol), but there are also orange clouds irl. Makes me think of sunset. And Close My Eyes is one of my favorite Mariah songs ever. I love the imagery, with the orange clouds line for example, and just the whole introspective aspect of the song. #Deepriah
Orange clouds are gorgeous, you see them when it’s hot and smoggy outside at sunset, and they look like fire, hence “burn into your image”

Yesss I’m looking forward to the stories we haven’t heard yet, and just in depth conversations!!

There’s also the Lip Sync Battle that Chrissy Tiegen spilled she already did. No idea when it’ll air tho!
The MTV Special is being taped on November 14th, same day as the GeniusLevel interview.

Also don't forget that she's nominated for Best R&B/Soul Female Artist at Soul Train Awards, set to take place on November 17th in Las Vegas and airing on November 25th - https://twitter.com/SoulTrain/status/10 ... 9871731712

I wonder if she's doing an appearance/performing on there...

Omg if the MTV Special is a private concert, I hope that it’s before the Genius event! We need Mimi to be vocally rested.

I really hope that she has some late night shows planned, like pls do Fallon since she’s already in NY! And Corden too. It would be so fun if Mariah did one of Fallon’s musical games where she can freestyle and sing the news or something haha it would go viral if she sounds good!
How bout you...

That's so precious! It reminds me of Mariah's upbringing being immersed in music at home because of her mother. One day I will definitely be constantly playing the great soul singers at my home (Mariah included as one of the last greats IMO) for my kids.

So many quality events are lining up for album promotion :D I'm satisfied.

Wendy Williams can kiss my ass



This is why we need studio videos

Stupid bitch



More often than not she writes the whole melody, which is a bigger deal than just lyrics

Wendy can choke

Whatever, he didn’t check her adequately, she doesn’t just write lyrics, she writes most of the melodys

She’s not Beyoncé or Rihanna, no shade

Mariah probably knows as many guitar chords as Taylor Swift

That’s why this is so annoying

Even Walter, who has pride that equals hers for their material, says she wrote melodies and even chords

So the Wendy Show is my guilty pleasure and of course I was annoyed with her comments today... Wendy is very messy and doesn't fact check at all. Her assistant is a superfan but too afraid to stand up to Wendy's blatantly wrong opinions :lol: Reminds me of users in here who tried/try to claim the same thing :roll:

Yes that's true. He must be scared of Wendy. He always defers to her when they discuss Mariah.

This just proves the public perception of Mariah.
People see her as a DIVA.
Not a SONGWRITER!

I'm sorry. That's the best you can do?

Nah, Wendy can go @#$% and #$%^#$%^ and %$^@@$!

That's slander and the #@& has crossed the line.

Sure, Mariah collaborates with a lot more people now, but she is a songwriter and prides herself on this.
I SO hope Mariah calls her out on this.

And I hope the co-writers Mariah has worked with shut that b**** up.

Ok, I'm calm now. :)
