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

mel-b-mariah-tgj

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.

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

    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.

    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.

      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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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?
