    I think you've mistaken Bye Bye's video for IBLYLT.

    The outfit here looks just fine to me.
    She was kind of fragile and she had a lot to grapple with but basically she kept it all inside ...

    She wears a bikini at some point on the video as well. Doing a photoshoot. But didn't disturb me, cause I thought, she 's doing her job( the photoshoot) a joyous moment, but still is saddened by the lost of her loved ones

However, people eventually got tired of her self-absorbed image (morsel diet, pink yet lavender motif, fake tan, photoshopped pics) and completely moved on to younger and more interesting pop stars. The era would have been more exciting if she invested so much passion in her performances more than her looks.
    What photoshopped pics hun? She was as thin as she was at her debut so she wasn’t photoshopping anything.

    E=MC² suffered from its singles more than anything else. She even performed Migrate on SNL and it would have been the sane single choice... instead she chose Bye Bye to repeat the TEOM formula of a beat ballad as single #2 and it backfired. Not because the song is any bad - I love it - but the performances were weak and lipsynched...(at least in parts) and because the music video had 0 replay value.

    After BB became a single and wasn't received so well, she went on her honeymoon for 2 months while the album was fighting for its dear life on the charts.

    E=MC² had one of the best roll-outs out of any of her albums... but the time of her being a relevant pop-girl was running out very quickly. It saddens me that the initial debut week of E=MC² was the last time Mariah would promote a new album in Europe. She's never returned to the continent ever since.

    She really killed such a vibrant, modern and jovial era with the release of Bye Bye.

    She knew OSD wasn't totally doing it so she improved on it with this gem.

    Same thing as Einstein is an upgrade to TEOM
