I listen to a lot of Celine live performances too, her voice changed a lot. Especially last year. Doesn't mean she can't sing. Same with Mary J Blige, who literally sounds almost nothing like she used to.
It's a weird double standard and people really pick on Mariah.

I think it's because Mariah has had a lot of public fails (like recent NYE) and she also comes across as the shady arrogant diva.
Celine always seems so humble and lovely, so nobody wants to pick on her.

Oh and the main reason is because her voice has got considerably worse!

Céline's voice has changed but it hasn't really declined in the same way - she can still sing her entire catalogue and reach every single note, it's just not as powerful as it once was. But that's just age - she still commands the utmost respect as a vocalist.

Mariah's voice has declined in terms of she just cannot seem to be consistent - and she clearly doesn't train her voice properly. It just doesn't seem to work anymore for her.

Anyway, this song does nothing for me and it will do nothing for Mariah.

Not for loosing her voice though, it's for using it too much.

You're right about that. Mariah's problem is consistency. Some days she sounds like she did 15 years ago, other days she sounds tired. All in all, she still has a voice.

AND Celine has changed some arrangements of her songs to suit her new voice! Mariah tries to do things that she can't anymore and well..

I guess y'all haven't seen good Mariah performances. The only thing that Celine has over Mariah these days is consistency. I would argue that their vocal capabilities are almost equal to this day (when Mariah is ready of course). They both lipsync parts that they can't hit anymore as well. It's a bad double standard.

I'd take the YDKWTD single cover over this any day :o

So she is premiering this on a friday with the video to get maximum streaming points and chart debut?

In her defense, when was the last time people gave a f about a single cover?? lol

She must get with the times, no one gets excited about stuff like that anymore, she could've shared an official snippet instead or a teaser video.

Yes, damn her for posting the single cover! Even though others do it, she didn't make a big deal about it and she has already released a snippet :roll:

I saw now that she did post the video on twitter, but the tweet wasn't posted here, so I couldn't possibly know.

Using MariahsWorld to promote her music is a huge mistake.

Céline? Let's not, 'cause she's had quite a few messy performances too, even in Vegas, and there's proof on YouTube for anyone who cares to check. Her voice hasn't deteriorated that much, but she can't hit every single note from her early days either. Not w/the same ease or not sounding strained at times. So let's just not. Gotta give her credit 'cause she's more consistent and does her warmups and really takes care of her voice.

But of course it's only Mariah who dubs her performances and uses prerecorded tracks.
But let's get back to Meemz. I gotta agree on the consistency thing, tho. Mariah quite lacks that nowadays, unfortunately.

I actually meant her tone. The part that starts with "when you love someone, you just don't treat them bad" isn't pleasant to hear.

Not even close to how she sounds live at all. I don't blame you, as you probably don't follow her live performances. She sounds worse in the studio nowadays.

I like that video preview! Looks like the video is going to be nice. Too bad I can already say I'm going to hate the song.

The video looks well produced but I'm so sick of Whoreriah, I just don't want to see her boobs anymore.
