Looks like Mel B is backtracking on her statements...
I watched the full thing, she wasn't being shady, not really. Did she have to say 'maybe she doesn't have that voice anymore'? Nope. She also said Mariah didn't attend rehearsal. But overall she wasn't being mean. It was mainly just a discussion. What annoys me the most is the fact people don't bother to check for Mariah when she's doing good, she's sounded good all year, but 1 performance & suddenly she has no voice???
Problem is, it isn't just 1 performance anymore though. It's happening more regularly in a short amount of time. It's been happening too often whatever the reason. I've said this a while ago too that I don't consider Mariah to be a good live performer anymore. There is a lack of consistency as a performer. She does well on her own concerts but even then I also often think it's just passable. Imo she needs to make significant/effective changes if she wants to continue high profiled/televised performances or this won't be the last mishap (to put it mildly). Otherwise she shouldn't do them at all anymore (and just do the concerts) because they often seem to do more harm than good. I know people will disagree with me but I've felt this way for years now and I'm not trying to be dramatic. It is what it is. Just my honest opinion.

If she releases when no one is talking about her because too much time has passed from the NYE event and Mariah's World we will have another situation like Art of Letting Go, You're Mine and Infinity because most of the public will not know or care that she has new music

Now she is a conversation not a press conference because conversations have overtaken press conferences in importance, she must operate in the new music world like she operates in the new TV world

It will be soooo hard to get people to talk about her in a few months or worse next year by just releasing a song and counting on the label to promo it

No matter how much promo today an artist can still flop

But not all publicity is good publicity. No matter how good the song is, people are saying that they are tired of her and they want her to go away. Her image isn't good enough for people to want to purchase her material. She'll get dragged even harder because people will claim she did this all as a publicity stunt (people already think this).
I hate the way she's getting dragged. I want her to go away for a while to soften her image.

It's more likely to be the old "big band" song.

Kanye was dragged to hell when released Yeezus and Pablo, and Mariah was dragged to hell during American Idol, but look how that exposure even if bad led to enough hype to get #B Top 15 right away

It wasn't until radio received call outs that it started to stop playing it as much

The numbers don't lie, look at what that NYE performance did for We Belong Together and Emotions on Spotify

That's all the evidence you need

She won't have another opportunity like this

Ally, I see what you are saying but Mariah is being dragged for her talent. That makes this situation very different. She is also in a much more damaged place than she was in the #B era and Kanye never fell off commercially to begin with.

What you are saying makes sense but it's slightly far fetched imo.

I also think that the window is basically closed now.

The problem is she hasn't released anything musically interesting since tec, and even that was mishandled like they just gave up. And she hasn't been building a public profile as an artiste since - she's only done unstrategic limited audience projects just keep busy.

Well I feel like the focus shifted from Mariah the musician to Mariah the BRAND. And brand is known to be uhmmmm.. inconsistent. Highlights are def the perfume and the mac thing. The water / soda whatever is interesting

I think in time she'll venture into selling mics where you can push a button and hear her singing :lol:
