So it is like being married

I saw her in concert a couple of years ago, and she was surprisingly good. Maybe because I was expecting one of her trainwreck shows.

"bland, shallow, unsatisfying"

I'll be the judge of that if you don't mind.
Bathe her and send her to my room.

Something like Mariah Carey?

I don't care how crazy she gets, I still kinda want to hump her.

beerrun: "bland, shallow, unsatisfying"



So, basically, just like her entire recorded output?

She makes too many demands on my ear

It's difficult to overlook the fact that Mariah does have talent, but I dislike her more for what she has spawned than what she's created herself.

Thanks to her (and Whitney Houston) we now have this endless procession of Mariah "wanna bees" who cannot simply sing a song, they have to contort their voices into all manner of vocal gymnastics, note bending and flat out screaming in some misguided attempt to replicate her style and sound.

Makes me all stabby just thinking about it...

Why can't everyone sing like Bob and Franky sang??

She flailed amid poorly refined production with awkward silences, unrehearsed lighting, uneven levels and a backdrop of graphics more suited to a 1998 Windows screensaver than a multi-million-dollar worldwide tour.

Bahahahahahaha

I used that term once on a chat board shortly after Whitney Houston died and was severely chastised and banned from posting there anymore. Good times...good times.

Ugh -- and don't forget the ridiculous hand gestures. Makes me stabby too.

She was just having a bad night/she's exhausted//she's only human in 5, 4, 3, 2 ...

She sings like a dog whose tail is being stepped on.

Mariah Carey is an abomination to the beautiful art of human vocal music. Her squeaks and yelps are worthless, and I have to wonder why she's been a "name" for this long.

Mariah either whispers or yells. There are only two settings on her volume knob. It's goddamn annoying.

The pro geek term is "Melisma". Another acceptable term would be "bellowin' ".

I don't care for her singing but I'd love to make a sticky mess all over her.

No Fair. That's TWO hints.

I'd bag it and brag about it to anyone who would listen. Of course, this would be after I ran far, far away from her crazy ass and changed my phone number.

Ok, which farker added this comment to TFA "where was Kermit"?

Made me LOL

F*ck that. As AVG so eloquently pointed out, Mariah Carey is there for her TITS!

Salieri to Mozart about emperor BTW

Mariah Carey's music videos are best muted so you can concentrate on the visuals. I wouldn't know about radio airplay because I usually listen to a CD or iPod in the car.
