EMI finally realized that Mariah Carey sucks. Guess we'll see her in re-hab again, real soon.
2001-12-26 5:23:19 PM  
It's time to turn to pr0n.

It's about time. She has been resting on her past accomplishments too long. When was the last time she churned out a song worthy of her caliber aside from screeching from time to time in her current songs.
2001-12-26 5:23:28 PM  
she's on Virgin Records (if only temporarily, now)... that's just too good.
2001-12-26 5:23:41 PM  
Id still do her.
2001-12-26 5:23:51 PM  
Tony Martolia must be laughing his arse off.

Did you see the cans on that dame.

I wonder how long before Arista bails on Whitney Houston ?
That was the DUMBEST rewarding of a recording contract I've ever heard of.
I heard Whitney gets so geeked on rock that one time she held a lighter up to the back of her microphone, thinking it was a crack pipe.
2001-12-26 5:32:22 PM  
I'm really wanting to see this movie "Glitter" now.
2001-12-26 5:46:15 PM  
"I wonder how long before Arista bails on Whitney Houston ?"

Hell yeah! When was the last time Whitney Houston even had a hit song? How about an album, for that matter?

She's becoming more and more like Bobby Brown, famous only for her run-ins with the law than her music...
2001-12-26 5:46:24 PM  
I hope she uses the money and Produces/Directs/Stars in "Glitter 2: The Come Back.

Do they have a special asylum for kooked-out, don't quite grasp the meaning of Diva, gold brickin', self-obsessed, No talent hacks?
2001-12-26 5:46:47 PM  
Has Mariah actually even sang a real song in the last 3 or 4 years? All she does is hire a few rappers to lay down some freestyles while she makes screeching orgasm noises in the background.

Then she films a video featuring her in trampy outfits with the guest-star rappers pawing her ass while she makes doe-eyed glances at the camera.

Anybody wanna bet the industry will blame illegal MP3s?
2001-12-26 5:50:46 PM  
She either sucked too much or sucked too little.
2001-12-26 5:52:37 PM  
10M is not bad from where I stand. I would program in Cobol on a TRS-80 (if it were possible) for that.

A "HERO" tag may be more appropriate?!!!!
2001-12-26 5:57:53 PM  
Do you think she's a 3 input woman?
2001-12-26 5:58:29 PM  
Deathcow: Wow. Thank you!

Carey is one of numerous high-profile recording acts -- among them R.E.M., Macy Gray, and Shelby Lynne -- whose latest albums tanked during a year in which the music industry has seen declining sales overall.

REM - 80's has-been.
Macy Gray - 1 hit wonder.
Shelby Lynne - although I like her music, has anyone else even heard of her?

These three are NOT indicitave of an overall decline in sales.
2001-12-26 5:58:57 PM  
Austin: I submitted this with the "Hero" tag, but perhaps Drew and crew thought I was using it too lightly. C'est la vie.
2001-12-26 5:59:33 PM  
Oops... sorry about the bold text.
2001-12-26 6:01:01 PM  
I hope Carey takes them to the cleaners. I love it when an artist can stick it to a record company. They screw over most of their talent and do everything possible to prevent legitimate owners of CDs from copying them for personal use, so the hell with them.
2001-12-26 6:08:01 PM  
I agree with scarnek, i would love to freaking do her.
2001-12-26 6:12:13 PM  
hmmm.... "only 2 million albums." wierd, but if it were a brand-spanking new piece of pop shiat that would be "multiplatinum record sales".... how many artists even sell 2 million records? and yeah, id still do her
2001-12-26 6:21:55 PM  
Not to long before Mariah and Whitney will be sharing a bottle of Thunderbird behind some dumpster in Encino.
2001-12-26 6:24:43 PM  
Who wouldn't throw a dick in her? I bet even a few of Farkettes here would too, if they could.
2001-12-26 6:30:26 PM  
If I had a ship, I wouldn't name it "The Mariah Carey"...

2001-12-26 6:30:33 PM  
I like the way she holds that mic,
2001-12-26 6:32:43 PM  

That beeyotch is good for something, and it ain't singing. Buy her out of her contract and send her to Nevada.
2001-12-26 6:40:12 PM  
who cares. she sucks. hot chicks are a dime a dozen, I'd rather not see 'em singin' "R&B" anyway...or whatever you call that shiat she spews.

I think I should probably put in my bid for her to be in the dead pool... after her going into a hospital recently I can see her doing a half gainer off a very tall bridge some time in the near future.

One of the finest moments of the "Tribute" concert for the Sept 11 fund was at the end when Willie Nelson led all of the other stars in the full-blown version of "God Bless America". Towards the end Willie was in the foreground and Mariah was in the background and you could hear Willie just fine, but someone had the forethought to turn Mariah' mic off so you could SEE her shrieking but you couldn't hear her at all.

God Bless America. God Bless sound engineers with brass balls.
2001-12-26 6:53:02 PM  
How is it that nobody's said BOOBIES!!
2001-12-26 6:56:20 PM  
Amen, Harveyfish.

Finger Cuffs?
2001-12-26 7:14:15 PM  
"Ya pays yer money, ya takes yer chances, EMI".

Maybe she could team up with Jocko (or is that Jokeo), and do a Pop-Comeback-album!!!!! Yeah, that's the ticket.
2001-12-26 7:19:38 PM  
SO.... they spent $10 million to promote it, and sold 2 million copies... hmmm... they should've just sent each person who bought one a $5 bill in the mail with a note that said "Sorry".
2001-12-26 7:29:28 PM  

I'd rather throw a dick in Fb-.
2001-12-26 8:04:33 PM  
If she were my daughter, I'd...
2001-12-26 8:05:46 PM  
...if she were my daughter, I'd... smother that daughter in chocolate syrup, and strap her on again! Oh baby!
2001-12-26 8:09:06 PM  
A few years ago, I might have shed a tear for her, but now I'll just resort to cracks about how the mighty have fallen.

heehee...even her label thinks she sucks...heehee
2001-12-26 8:20:16 PM  
"God Bless America. God Bless sound engineers with brass balls."

Thankyou. I have golden ears, as well.
2001-12-26 8:33:54 PM  
Too bad.
2001-12-26 8:52:28 PM  
Korzeniowski: What would you do daddy?

(Sorry I'm late. I was counting rests)

Anyway, she's an artist an nobody understands her. Maybe she can hook up with one of those drugged out apes from the other thread and find herself a sugar daddy.
2001-12-26 8:53:36 PM  
You know, I've gotta get one of those there recording contracts... I can't imagine my boss coming up to me and saying, "You know, we're realized you suck at what you do, you are costing the company millions, so.... here's $80 million dollars to go away."
2001-12-26 9:08:50 PM  
How can Shelby Lynne's album sales tank? I have never even heard of her or him!
2001-12-26 9:12:05 PM  
nice body, no talent isnt that the basis on music today??
2001-12-26 9:12:40 PM
