Behind The Scenes: Mariah Carey & Miguel’s ‘#Beautiful’ Video

Published: Saturday 11th May 2013 by Sam

Mariah Carey has cooked up a hit, so it seems, with new single ‘#Beautiful’. And while debate rages on as to how much of a hand her paid-for radio deal has in the song’s success, the premium diva has given a window-peek into the the making of the Miguel assisted cut’s Joseph Kahn helmed video.

 Watch the ever-festive Mimi elaborate on the visual’s concept below…

    • Tiffany22534 May 11, 2013

      Oh Hell naw B****! Mariah Carey is not a stripper and she looks very good.

    • Common Sense May 11, 2013

      And she still looks better than your ratchet gazelle looking fave…

  2. Rita is Queen May 11, 2013

    And her old ass is trying to put a hastag in the title of the song wtf? if your not from this generation then you shouldnt used hastags makes you look like your trying to hard to stay young & hip.

    • Jlover May 11, 2013

      Right she too OLD for that

      • Tiffany22534 May 11, 2013

        J-ho is toooooo old for that young man she is dating. J-ho is also toooo old to be jumping around and shaking her ass like a w****.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 11, 2013

        You are the last person who should be talking about people not acting their age. JLo is even older than Mariah and she still wears revealing clothing and shakes her booty on stage, etc. So don’t come for Mariah like that.

    • Common Sense May 11, 2013

      You do realize the # stands for F****** right? As in “F****** Beautiful.” Keep up.

      LOL true. The humble girl from the block >>>> this overrated diva

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 11, 2013

        You’re such a flip flop h**. I thought you were better than that but you showed your true colours.

    • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) May 11, 2013


      hope your fav get those Likes in her iTunes Page for her new Upcoming album tho.

    • DOSSOME May 11, 2013

      These likes better translate to downloads.

    • Tiffany22534 May 11, 2013

      Cici is the queen of stealing AALIYAHS & JANET JACKSON STYLE. Also, she is a FLOPPPP

    • Common Sense May 11, 2013

      Someone’s mad their fave was never relevant.

  4. Loyalty May 11, 2013

    Mariah looks cute in the yellow dress.

  5. Slaylor Swift May 11, 2013

    If your over the age of 30 you SHOULDN’T be using HASTAGS!!!

    • Common Sense May 11, 2013

      And if you’re over 12 you should be embarrassed to be listening to Taylor Swift’s whiny songs.

      • D. May 11, 2013

        DEAD & BURIED!

  6. Dev May 11, 2013

    How are people getting 200+ likes? This site is fishy

  7. LEROY May 11, 2013

    FLOP B****.

    She can’t even sing live anymore… Not since 2001.

    Does anyone remember her NYC TRIUMFLOP PERFORMANCE.


    Anyway, Miguelisha… I want your D***.

    • Jlover May 11, 2013


      • Common Sense May 11, 2013

        Has J.H** ever been able to sing? Oops I thought not.

    • Common Sense May 11, 2013

      You must have fallen into a coma since 2001 then. She’s had many amazing performances in the last decade.

  8. Dadddy2rough May 11, 2013

    Aww shes adorable n Ms Miguel is s***. I love the video and that was special with the whole fathers car thing. Side note just because you are over the age of 40 and have kids does not mean you give up on being s***. Stfu and let this woman live

  9. Jlover May 11, 2013

    She looks OLD & UGLY a thousand lbs of make up still won’t make you look any younger or cutier

  10. rih the UNSLAYABLE DRAGON May 11, 2013

    Oh s*** the hate is REAL.

  11. JARED (WHITE DUDE) May 11, 2013

    She is BEAUTIFUL & so is Miguel…


  12. Mother Monster May 11, 2013

    Gurl bye

  13. Nichole May 11, 2013

    Why does Samantha keep mentioning Mariah’s radio deal? Where was she when Justin had a week of payola for Suit & Tie? Or when Thiefyonce used it? Or even GaGa, J.No and Madonna? Of course since it is Mariah, she would mention payola.

    Fyi. The radio deal was only for one day, and #Beautiful is doing amazingly well, which shows me that the song didn’t need a radio deal after all.

    Flamin take it the ass queen, Samantha.

  14. POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) May 11, 2013

    is it only me or it is only in mariah’s related posts you see those fishy likes/dislikes rates ?


    • Dom May 11, 2013

      You know TGJ have it out for her it’s not as pronounced as their hate for Rihanna but it’s there

    • JOHNVIDAL May 11, 2013

      I´ve seen them in a few other posts but you are right it´s happening in the Mariah related ones more. Like there are too possibilities: TGJ wants hits no matter what and play with us or they are just simply pressed… or there are a few mediocre b****** fans really pressed at Mariah Carey´s new slayage even at 43 years old. I´ve noticed comments supporting JLo and Katy Perry are getting fake likes. I mean, people are really pressed lol

      • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) May 11, 2013

        they are Totally Pressed at Mariah , like it kills them to see her succeed you can tell 😉

        I like JLO , but c’mon , if her Internet fanbase is that active then why her album sales are shitty ?

        you get my point 😉 ?

    • D. May 11, 2013

      It’s because their fave Shitty Garbaj hates Mariah. So whomever their queen hates they hate. Mariah, Lil’ Kim…

  15. DOSSOME May 11, 2013

    #BEAUTIFUL-52 Million audience impressions

    LIVE IT UP-14 Million audience impressions (hahahahahahaha)

    Seems Mimi has won this round…Now when album sales come in,we know JLO can’t sell albums to save her life,MIMI will win too.That’s why JLOVERS are seething on MariahVEVO channel instead of purchasing and requesting “LIVE IT UP & DANCE AGAIN ON THE FLOOR” ft.PITBUL & REDONE.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 11, 2013

      Mariah has slayed on radio (and that deal is no excuse for the haters cos it´s increasing and increasing everyday, not just the first day (and Madonna didn´t last year), Mariah has slayed her on itunes, Mariah has slayed her critically and Mariah so obviously will slay her on album sales as we all know JLo can´t sell albums even when Mariah doesn´t have a hit single
      I tell you these people are pressed

  16. MariahIsMusic1 May 11, 2013

    Why are people so negative. Mariah is a legend>>>> don’t come at her. Pathetic losers 🙁


      OMG @ the dislikes. This website is so fake. the post doesn’t even have 60 comments yet. lol

  17. Kitty May 11, 2013

    She looks like a clown.

  18. Boss May 11, 2013

    200 f***** likes for a negative Mariah Carey comment with a post with less than 30 comments. Smh. All these haters for what? This site is fixed nd biased as fuc.

    • DOSSOME May 11, 2013

      TGJ hates Mariah and Madonna even more than Rihanna…they only hate Rihanna to get hits.

      • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) May 11, 2013

        Pretending* to hate rihanna…. 😉

  19. Rob May 11, 2013

    Ummm, it was a one day Clearchannel song release that is not uncommmon, J Lo had it also for Live It Up, as well as Rihanna for Diamonds, Justin for Suit and Tie, and etc. Also, that exposure does not equate SALES on Itunes (see J Lo). Keep hating Sam. It’s not Mariah’s fault yo fave diva Nippy drowned in the bathtub with her beloved crack pipe. Mimi didn’t make her do it 🙁

    • DOSSOME May 11, 2013

      That Nippy comment was totally unnecessary but i cosign the rest of the comment…i see no lies

    • JOHNVIDAL May 11, 2013

      I agree with all the comment minus the pathetic two last sentences. Any Mariah lover should appreciate and like Whitney Houston, how can you dislike a true great? I get people who stan for mediocrity live in a delusional world where their faves are better than the real talent. But I really don´t get how a person can hate one true great just cos they prefer another true great

      • Rob May 11, 2013

        I liked Whitney Houston, but not as much as Mariah. I only said that to shade Sam because he always placed her on a pedestal over Mariah through the years on this website. May she rest in peace, but I still don’t see why he feels the need to hate on Mimi. I shouldn’t have reduced to his level of degrading shade.

      • JOHNVIDAL May 11, 2013

        Ok so you are sane then. Thanks!

  20. Todd May 11, 2013

    Haters,go away! Shes great!

  21. JOHNVIDAL May 11, 2013

    I´m so happy all the promo seems to be on point this time. It reminds me of the beginning of the The Emancipation of Mimi and e=mc2 eras. So on point. I´m truly excited about the album

    • DOSSOME May 11, 2013

      They can’t stand the slayage…Now they say it’s selling courtesy of…had this song flopped like they expected,Miguel’s name wouldn’t have even come up

  22. DOSSOME May 11, 2013

    Meanwhile “Almost Home” climbed 3 spots on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart to reach the top 20…That very song that she released and did absolutely nothing to promote is still charting

  23. Back 2 J May 11, 2013

    She looks great here. That’s nice she used & kept her father’s car in the video. I believe the second verse of ‘Bye Bye’is also dedicated to her father. I wonder how he died… Good that they were able work out their differences before he past. Can’t wait to see the music video.

    • Rob May 11, 2013

      He died of cancer right before the Charmbracelet era. She even has a song dedicated to him on that album called Sunflowers for Alfred Roy, hence she’s holding a sunflower in this video clip. Apparently, sunflowers were his favorite during his final days in the hospital. 🙁

  24. Booboo May 11, 2013

    Y’all need to stop talking like she’s the only artist with a Clear Channel radio deal. Hate.


    Mariah will not be performing at the American Idol Finale.
    #ThankGod, My prayers have been answered. lol

    • Common Sense May 11, 2013

      Bad bad bad. I expected her to working on her voice for that performance. Now I have no reason to watch that awful show and even worse contestants.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 11, 2013

        There will be a peformance but it will be taped on the day before and then shown on the finale. So yes, you should still tune in lamb.

  26. Kevin_Lee_1985 May 11, 2013

    Couple of things after reading these comments.

    1. the # stands for “f**king”, the song isn’t called “hashtag Beautiful”
    2. whatever you thing of Mariah aside, this song is refreshing for radio
    3. if mariah wants to show her v***** in the video who cares, she looks better than the 20 year olds showing theirs now a days
    4. Ride or DIe Lamb

  27. Jloslut May 11, 2013

    Talking about hash tags jlo just added # to live it up can she stop copying n maybe get her song at least in top 20 on the iTunes chart lmfao

  28. JT May 11, 2013

    The song is still gaining massive airplay each week. She’s paying for that? No. She’s not.

  29. Enni May 12, 2013

    Y’all keep talking about “Payola” but the deal was only for one day, JLo had the same deal, Justin timberlake had rhe same deal, Madonna had the same deal. The deal Mariah had was only for one day but now she has 52 Million radio impressions. You can hate all you like but this song was a hit and people like it.
