Mel B: “Maybe Mariah Carey’s Voice Isn’t There Anymore”

Published: Tuesday 10th Jan 2017 by Sam

Mariah Carey’s New Years’ Eve meltdown has been lodged in the headlines for almost two weeks and shows no signs of vanishing.

Everyone and their mom has pitched their two cents on the matter, which saw Mimi tangled in a lip-sync fiasco.

Now, Spice Girls star Mel B has voiced her opinion.

The feisty singer turned media personality shared her take on the drama during a guest stint on The Real this week.

Interestingly, she was actually in attendance co-hosting the Dick Clark special when everything went down.

Watch below as she doesn’t hold back on ol’ Mimi…

On the one hand, it’s incredibly ironic that “Mel B” from the “Spice Girls” is talking about anyone’s vocals. Something so missing from her own narrative and skill-set – much as we love her.

Yet, she’s always been a straight-shooter. As such, while she arguably doesn’t have full license to vent on the matter, it does beg the question – did she lie?

Your thoughts?

    And why can’t Mel talk about singers? You do it every day and you’re a damn blogger. At least she IS a singer by trade and definition.

      Singer by trade, maybe. By definition? Not so much lol.

      • Anne January 10, 2017

        But a blogger does not present themselves to be a singer, Mel B does. People expect bloggers to blog and singers to sing.

    • mr.m January 10, 2017

      EXACTLY!!!!
      This blog is so delusional.

    • IIDONOTREPLY2TROLLz January 10, 2017

      Loving the first comment. Drag tgj like how they make us look like their peasants. Arguing over celebrities like they pay our bills.

  3. Mother January 10, 2017

    B****, when was your voice ever there? She needs to keep it cute

  4. Cough Cough January 10, 2017

    This blog gives advice on tons of maters that none of its writes are experts in: looks, vocals, fashion etc. Why can’t Mel give her novice opinion as y’all do, poorly, on the daily?

    • King z January 10, 2017

      That “poor opinion” that you login to read…daily…

      • Lea January 10, 2017

        Sam, guh is that you?lol!

  5. Everyone’s A Critic January 10, 2017

    Mariah has nothing to prove to this spice girl! Writing credits last forever, voices change over the years. Mariah HAD it and definitely still has more of a voice than any of the spice girls! STOP IT 🤚🏾

  6. Myownstan January 10, 2017

    God I hate Mel b she is loud annoying and has absolutely no right to talk vocals when she can’t sing herself

    • Fresj January 10, 2017

      Can you sing? My goodness tgj users are getting stupider by the year.

  7. The One January 10, 2017

    Child bye!!!
    At least Mariah has receipts of is/what her talent was capable of!!
    Mel B doesn’t know how to work a mic that’s on😂😂

  8. steve January 10, 2017

    At least mariah doesn’t sound like she has a permanent sore throat her entire career.

  9. The Wig Snatcher January 10, 2017

    I wanna hear Mel B sing for shîts and giggles. We could use a good laugh.

  10. Beyoncé Jackson January 10, 2017

    Everyone with a brain knows that Mariahs vocals have been on shaky ground for over a decade now.

  11. Stephy January 10, 2017

    Mariah’s voice is damaged and suffers from vocal nodules. I don’t think Mel B was being mean or shady. The truth is the truth, period. With that being said, Mel B (and the rest of them h**’s) never could sing.

  12. Theman January 10, 2017

    She’s wrong Mariah has been singing all yr. She can’t sing at all.. She’s the one that’s geeking for a spice girl reunion because otherwise she’s irrelevant. Mariah has sounded quite good on tour recently..

    Everyone, even if they’re not experts in music, can give an opinion about how singers sound, we all have ears, we can tell when Mariah is singing well and when not, that’s why i find stupid when people question the participation of non-vocalist like J.Lo or Britney as judges on music talent shows, they surely can’t sing but they certanly can hear and determinate if someone is good at singing, like we all do from our homes while watching those shows. Mel B is right, everybody knows that Mariah is not the vocalist she once was, not need to get mad at that.

    • Dev January 10, 2017

      I kinda disagree. Yes, everyone is entitled to an opinion but it makes it bad taste if you as a “singer” are giving advice to people more talented than you because the response will always be what it is. These words no matter how harmless would’ve sounded better form a producer, songwriter or manager but if you are known for having one of the most basic of voices than its better you stay away from such questions.
      On a side note, Mel’s chest looked stiff and plastic.

  14. pat January 10, 2017

    she has a new voice now… gorgeous..but airier…with mostly midchest belts and a gorgeous falsetto, whistle..not so much

  15. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 10, 2017

    JLO must have sent Mel B a check…

  16. Steven January 10, 2017

    Who is she again ? Exactly she probably can’t sing a note

  17. Jamie January 10, 2017

    So here’s the sort from A to Z…she doesn’t know you either Mel B.😂

  18. Jamon January 10, 2017

    TGJ when are you going to give up on Mariahs Newe year’s performance? It’s about time you move on. No one is saying anything that hasn’t been said before!

    Mariah: Mel B who?
    Journalist: she was a spice girl.
    Mariah: I don’t know her!

  19. SMH January 10, 2017

    Folks still getting mad over the truth. This is all Mariah’s fault kids; nobody is picking on her. She’s the one who failed on national TV and didn’t even have enough respect for her fans to put forth an effort.

  20. leveinard January 10, 2017

    When presented with all the facts we have, based on her performances over the last couple years, saying Mariah’s still got it is like saying Trump will be a decent president. Neither has the range.

  21. Ajax January 10, 2017

    I think with the coverage of her concerts in Vegas and Sweet Fantasy tour, its pretty clear she can still sing. Its already been told exactly what the problem is. Lets move on and cut the b*******. P.S. Mel you never had the voice so keep that to kitchen table talk at home.

  22. Newton January 10, 2017

    It’s funny how no one (including TGJ) come to Mariah’s defense and post clips of the stellar performances she gave around the world in 2016, including her own Christmas shows 2 weeks before NYE. Didn’t TGJ go to MC’s show at the O2 in March and leave impressed?

  23. King z January 10, 2017

    One only needs ears to be able to judge singing, just as they only need eyes to judge visual arts. No further qualification needed.

    However, to have a RESPECTED OPINION on any matter, one must have made strides in the field either via practice or theoretical study.

  24. #TeamTinashe Stan January 10, 2017

    I agree that Mel B has more of a license to speak on this matter than any of us as she has been on stage multiple times performing.
    Which is why I cannot drag her and just the mere fact that she is a f’n legendary Spice Girl.

  25. So. January 10, 2017

    But Mel B is the best singer in the spice girls, and that includes posh spice.

  26. B_Roni January 10, 2017

    Y’all ask these folks to be real and not fake but then when they say what’s on their mind , you want to go and talk about them. What was she suppose to say?? It’s a talk show? She is on theire for a reason and it’s called THE REEEEEEAAAAAAAAAL. Lol

  27. gurlbye January 10, 2017

    Her vocals don’t sound like they did in the 90’s but even on her worst day, Mimi can still out sing Mel B, countless other lessors. Lets not.

  28. Jason January 10, 2017

    Mel B didn’t say anything wrong! Y’all know damn well Mariah doesn’t try hard at singing anymore. Vocal damage or not… change the keys and arrangements to fit what your voice is today! That’s their part that drives me nuts as a huge fan. WE know you don’t sound lol like you did at 25, or 35! She just keeps peddling this divas s***, and forgets that we want a great vocal. LIVE!! And I’m not talking about The whispery voice, which actually does further damage to the voice! Belt that s*** out with proper rest and technique!

    • Bravo!!! January 11, 2017

      I love that you as a fan your being honest about her today vocals..

      • Jason January 11, 2017

        I don’t really know how some lambs can live in deaf/Blind delusion! It’s so obvious! But, whatever. I still love Mariah. I just need her to respect her audience a little more. SING!

  29. Kiokie January 10, 2017

    Mariah sounds better on her worst day than Mel B on her best.

  30. Mariah Carey January 10, 2017

    How dare the least successful Spice Girl even mention my name dahhhling! To quote the late Ms. Houston and the Queen of Soul Ms. Aretha Franklin – Mel B. isn’t, wasn’t or ain’t never gonna be a thing dahhhling!

  31. eric January 10, 2017

    To some of you, if the reporting on this blog is so poor, why are you here to read it every day? Just offer some constructive feedback and move on or find a different blog more suitable to you.

  32. Bravo!!! January 11, 2017

    She ain’t lying tho…I know ya Muthafucking Mariah cray fans heard when the feed went out, and you heard her real voice because I heard it!! Just Mariah a diva, but she not an Aretha franklin, Patti Labelle, Or a Tina Turner Diva 💁
    Mariah voice is over, but she do deserve respect tho..

  33. Coolness January 11, 2017

    In all honesty, Mariah’s voice is a shadow of its former self and this is coming from someone who still is a big fan of her music. Sure, she had cute showings throughout last year on tour and during her Vegas residency but it’s nothing like what he heard during the 90s or hell, even 2005. However, there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with that! She’s been doing this for 25 years and it’s normal for a voice to change over time.
    As for Mel B, I never liked Spice Girls and their music. She is the last person one would think of when it comes to serving vocals but it’s not like she lied.

  34. King B January 11, 2017

    And I only know Wannabe from the highly overrated group. At least Mariah has few classics.

  35. XoMoDe January 11, 2017

    If you watch the clip, what Mel B. said wasn’t even that harsh and overall true. TGJ just spun it to make the drama-thirsty and hypersensitive sycophants chime in with an emotional response to create clicks and comments.

  36. Tee January 12, 2017

    I find it funny, that people are asking where is her voice at. Y’all do know she’s 1/5 of the world’s greatest girl group..right? If y’all looking at MC performance, you’re not shaking you hear, you must be deaf. Mariah sounded at hot mess up there.

    If the people asking where is her voice…ummm..where is yours. She’s made millions off of her voice. Can you say the same?

Although Mariah Carey‘s current predicament is anything but glorious, the singer remains one of the most remarkable artists of all-time. A status she achieved by way of big hits, as well as lesser known numbers too. The diva’s doomed single ‘Crybaby’ is this week’s From The Vault pick. After much debate with… Read More

Life is sweet for Mariah Carey. Though facing heat from fans who aren’t fans of her new performance style, Carey continues to balance music and motherhood by spending quality time with her twins Morocco and Monroe and her lover Bryan Tanaka.
