Mariah Unable To Fill 3000-Seat Arena

Published: Monday 15th Feb 2010 by Sam
mariah tour flop

When Mariah Carey set out on her ‘Angel’s Advocate Tour’ in support of her poorly received, and even worse charting, ‘Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel’ LP, we highlighted that it made little sense considering her dismal record sales and public disinterest. It appears such observations have been validated, as it has been revealed that the 39 year old diva is struggling to sell-out 3000 seat venues.

Box office tally’s, as per Billboard (via Mariah Daily), for Carey’s January 27th 2010 show at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C, show that of a possible 3166 seats, the songbird only managed to fill 2430… leaving 736 seats empty. Ouch.

Oh Mimi! It’s actually kinda sad to see how things are turning out for her after such an amazing comeback with ‘The Emancipation of Mimi’. I mean even playing such small venues when she’s a star of such a magnitude must have been a blow to her ego; so not being able put bottoms in seats, must be even worse.  Looking at the situation objectively, it was evident a mile off that a tour was a no-no, hence why it ever materialised is beyond me. Embarrassing.

Tidbit: In other Mariah news, ‘Angel’s Cry (ft. Ne-Yo)’ is on heavy rotation on UK music TV channels.

    Mariah was never revered for her ability to sell a show, it has always been about her voice but not her entertainment factor. Give her a break. Now if they was Janet, Beyonce or Ciara then it would be a different story.

  2. Mr.727 February 15, 2010

    Damn shame! Start making real music again, then she might be able to fill these venues.

  3. Alex February 15, 2010

    awww poor Mariah

  4. GeeMan February 15, 2010

    As Mimi fan for yrs I can say touring has never been her strong point. So I am not surprised. I was at the MSG show on NYE and it was a solid crowd and it was an entertaining show.

  5. kekeluvsu February 15, 2010

    @MR727

    I totally agree. I’m sorry Mariah but you are almost a 40 year old woman still doing these kitty ass songs that are not meant for you. Wearing something that a teen or a woman in her 20’s would wear. SMH. And that’s so sad. No she is far from big put dress accordingly. She doesn’t need to wear half the stuff she does. I wish Mariah would come back f*** MiMi #noshade

  6. brandoise February 15, 2010

    She should have continued with the uptempo music. Instead she went right back to those sappy ass ballads. People want to feel good and dance. I think she better Emancipate Mimi again!

  7. GeeMan February 15, 2010

    I can say this despite the sells at least she is continuing on, she could have made up an excuse cancelled the tour and profitted from it. So kudos for that but the tour was not a good idea maybe a show to mark 20th anniversary and call it a day with sales of memiors I didn’t see this tour being a success. But again she is pocketing money from other arenas so I can’t say all is bad in Mimi world.

  8. jeremimi February 15, 2010

    OKAY…WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL???

    I’m pretty sure that EVERY ARTIST has an arena where ticket sales are low.

    And to be fair, if you’re going to inform the readers of this site ONLY ON NEGATIVE ISH…then you should seriously reconsider calling this site an “objective” forum…cause it’s anthing but that F*****!!!

    BTW, MARIAH SOLD OUT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN AND PRETTY MUCH EVERY ARENA SHE’S BEEN TO SO FAR…
    What’s wrong Sam(antha) … you’re afraid to report such POSITIVE NEWS FROM MARIAH??????? … Though so you f*cking F*****!!!

  9. jeremimi February 15, 2010

    Ummm, I’m pretty sure she sold more tickets before the age of 25 then Beyonce, Ciara, or Lady Gaga will see in their entire CAREER LIFESPAN …. don’t be jealous of Mariah Sam. We all know you want Nick’s d*ck up your a** (you f*****!!!)

  10. 12345 February 15, 2010

    I am a crazy lamb and trust me, I’m happy that she isnt getting a big sucess with this tour, maybe know she opens her eyes and see that songs like “Obsessed” and “Up Out My Face” are not for her, and in my opinion, she disrespects her true fans if she continues making those s***** songs and albums. I really want her to retire a bit, for 2/3 years, and come with a strong comeback, she really hasnt got nothing to prove anymore, she is a living legend but as a fan, I really want her to continue making music, and even more beatiful meaningful music.
    Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel wasnt bad but even if she made a masterpiece album, after the trainwreck that was E=MC2 it would still flop because, that album is really the worse of her carrer and has a fan I felt disrespected, embarassed and cheated when I listened to it for the first time.
    We are mad at you, but we are still waiting for you, Queen!

  11. Fuck_Beywance February 15, 2010

    I love you mariah but please put out better Music

    Leave that bubble gum pop music 2 Rihanna,Beyonce,Gaga.etc

    I cried when i heard “Up out my face”

  12. JEFF February 15, 2010

    MY THOUGHTS SAM ARE THAT SINCE MARIAH AND RIHANNA TURNED UR INTERVIEW DOWN AND NEVER GAVE THIS S***** WEBSITE A SHOUT-OUT YOU ARE JUST BITTER.

    FIRST , AT LEAST MARIAH IS GOING ON AND NOT CANCELING SHOWS WHO UNLIKE JANET WHO ALSO HAD POOR TICKET SALES CANCELED HER ENTIRE SHOW

    SECOND F*** YOU , U ARE JUST A MARIAH HATER, WHITNEY GIVES A POOR VOCAL PERFORMANCE AND U PRAISE HER, WHILE MARIAH GIVES A GOOD ONE AND YOU DONT POINT THAT OUT!

  13. hboss February 15, 2010

    I THINK HER MUSIC IS MISSING SOMETHING. SHE HAS TO REMEMBER THAT THIS DECADE IS NOT ABOUT THE VOICE, IT ABOUT THE SOUND. SHE NEED SOMETHING NEW AND FRESH IN HER MUSIC. TO SELL RECORD AND VENUES UNLESS YOUR BEYONCE, BRITNEY (WHO HAD THE HIGHEST GROSSING TOUR BY A FEMALE ARTIS IN 2009) OR LADY GAGA SHE NEED TO WORK IT…….

  14. Sasan February 15, 2010

    WHY ARE YOU GUYS CALLING THIS WEBSITE S*****. IF I THINK A WEBSITE IS S***** I WOULD NOT WANT TO BLOG ON IT. IF Y’ALL DON’T LIKE THIS SITE THEN DON’T COME ON HERE/ KEEP THE POST COMING SAM YOU ARE THE BEST.

    ITS FUNNY Y’ALL DON’T LIKE THE SITE BUT Y’ALL KEEP COMING BACK.

    TGJ IS THE BEST

  15. The One February 15, 2010

    Most comments by the majority of you makes no sense!! What does here clothers have to do with her music? If she is 40 and have a great body, which she does, she can wear what ever she likes!! Just because you are in you 20, and 30s and your bodies looks like a tube of lard LOL thats your bad!!! I’m a true fan and I love memoris of an Imperfect angle. Most of you don’t know what real music is yourselves!! More than likely can even tell someone the notes to the c major scale LMAO!!! But you know real music!!! Let that women enjoy her life, for like is short and should not be lived through the eyes of others!!! And if you want to see someone like Britney lip singing ever song, while entertaining you with dance moves LOL yeah you know real music!!! If I want to see someone dance I will go to a dance show, if i want to hear Gog give talent I put in or go an see Mariah, whitney, Patti, and other real singers. You have know say so on how a person dresses, or and other thing just enjoy the music and worry about your ownselves before passing judgement on someone else!!!! Make the world a better place. the good book says” judge not for you will be judged my the same means in the end”! I know sam hurts people in the name of money, that between him and the maker. Trust me he will recieve it back!!

  16. blasian February 15, 2010

    FIRST OF ALL MARIAH CAREY NEVER HAD BIG TOURS EVEN IN THE THE 90’S SO YES BEYONCE AND BRITNEY HAS MADE MORE MONEY THAN MARIAH WITH TOURS MARIAH DIDN’T TOUR THE WHOLE WORLD SHE WOULD GO OUT FOR LIKE 4 MONTHS AND GO BACK IN THE LAB AND PUT OUT A NEW ALBUM.

    MARIAH HAD HER DAY SHE MADE A NAME FOR HERSELF

    THE ONLY ARTIST THAT PERFORM IN BIG PLACES WORLDWIDE TODAY ARE

    BEYONCE, BRITNEY,JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND STILL MADONNA

  17. The One February 15, 2010

    Now Sam, sign in under a diffrent profile and make some more post supporting you lackluster point of view! GOOD DAY! This dude Thinks kelly rowland as a voice or any kind of stage presents LMAO! Enough said!

  18. SEAN2010 February 15, 2010

    SHE SOLD OUT MSG CAUSE SHE EVERYONE THOUGHT IT WAS JUST A NEW YEARS SPECIAL.

    SO STOP LYING

    MARIAH HASNT BEEN SELLING OUT A DAMN THING AND MOST STOPS ON THIS TOUR IS THEATERS SHE CANT EVEN FILL UP. SHE DOESNT EVEN DO ARENAS ANYMORE CAUSE SHE A FLOP.

    NO ONE CARES FOR MANRIAH

  19. SEAN2010 February 15, 2010

    MARIAH HAD PLENTY OF ARENA TOURS STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR THE BEAST

  20. The One February 15, 2010

    And I’am sure Mariah does care, if she sell 300 seats as long as its true fans like myself who wnats to be there!!! God knows she has been blessed and does not need the money! She does it for the fans, not the haters. people had negative things to say about Jesus and he was perfect, so I’am sure she knows low minded individuals like sam and his mindless followers will do the same to her and anyone else! if you don’t like her music, why comment its not going to change anything at the end of the day Mariah helps even Sam make money! LOl thats why he as a post about here weekly that gets more hit and comments than any other artist he puts up!! And she not relevent? Good thing same most of your followers are a bit on the slow side, for lack of better words!

  21. ANONYMOUS February 15, 2010

    MARIAH IS DONE! NO ONE CARES ABOUT A NARCISSISTIC B**** WHO LIP SYNCS AND HAS NO STAGE PRESENCE. WORD GOT AROUND OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS SHE’S A FAKE SINGER AS HER VOCALS DECLINED.

    PSSST. JUST TO LET THE LAMBS KNOW.. WHITNEY HAS BEEN SELLING OUT CONCERTS OVERSEAS. ALL 3 LONDON O2 SHOWS ARE COMPLETELY SOLD OUT EXCEPT FOR A FEW NOSE BLEED SEATS. THATS LIKE 20K X 3 SHOWS IN APRIL.

    HONESTLY, SELL OUTS ARE BASED ON PERCENTAGES. ISNT ABOVE 75% CALLED A SELL OUT? MARIAH SOLD 77% THEN.

  22. Kevin February 15, 2010

    Let’s judge Mariah Carey AFTER Up Out My Face feat. Nicki Minaj hits Top 40 Radio and itunes…deal?

    It’s a great song that has HUGEEEEEEE potential.

  23. boytoy1814 February 15, 2010

    Mariah is a solid FLOP !!!

  24. Nick February 15, 2010

    I LOVE LOVE her music, her new album is pretty AMAZING actually-what hurts Mariah is the way she acts, UGH I CANT STAND her live-SHE REALLY SUCKS NOW! BUT HER MUSIC IS GREAT!!

  25. The One February 15, 2010

    @ Anonymous how many Arenas have you sold out? Better yet want have you done in your life to touch others people are make a change for the better in their lives! LOL waiting…..Ok just what I thought! If you are not fan, why do u care, could it be because you have nothing going on in your own life? Just to let you know, when Mariah Carey made her come back she did it with a song that made bill board history, and sold millions of albums. Now im not a big fan of whitney put i want put her down because she is another true gifted singer even if she can’t sing like she use to!! Who are you making a point to, because Whitney and Mariah carey are great Friends its not a competition between the two, just in your head because you have no life of your own!! At the end of the day Mariah is mariah and you are a negative nobody!! Go Listen to what whitney as to say about mariahs voice, beyounce, britney, and countless others on youtube.

  26. B February 15, 2010

    Honestly, I believe Mariah has just over-saturated the music scene with her “continuing” sound. To the casual listener, ALL of her songs song exactly alike…she whispers the entire song as if she’s a 12 year old on the Disney Channel. Its was cute and s*** at first (like 10 years ago), but now the tacky outfits and bland material are boring and NO ONE wants to hear or look at it……All she has to do is change directions and come back strong….and for GOODNESS SAKES, dress like a s*** classy 40yr old, NOT like a slutty 14 year old. I-)

  27. Kevin February 15, 2010

    @ Anonymous

    Of COURSE Whitney’s tickets are selling! People haven’t heard her sing for years and years.

    Look at Adventures of Mimi tour–MC’s most successful tour. People LOVE come backs. Difference is, Mariah Carey came back better than ever with 2 #1’s off of Emancipation, and Whitney…well……She needs some work.

  29. B February 15, 2010

    @THE ONE….I agree…both Whitney and Mariah can stand some improvements in some areas of their entertaining, like every other singer….but they are still the most successful women in the industry, no one can take that away from them at all.

  31. The One February 15, 2010

    @ B its funny when people throw out false information, clearly you have not heard Memoirs, if you thinks she whispers the whole album, just want to type something I guess lol, and what 12 year old do u hear whisperingon the radio or on a CD please tell me LMAO, Now thats sad!

  32. The One February 15, 2010

    @ Anonymous trust me you have the right one!! LMAO, its sad that you sold out 1000s of arenas and no one even know your name!!!! LOL you have no common sense do you? I can tell! And what does a geographical location as to do with a person’s intelligence? Sounds like you are from another plant and you are still dumb!!

  33. Jon February 15, 2010

    First of all the tour is failing because of false advertising. This isn’t an Angels Advocate Tour, it’s a reminisce over my musical career tour where I have no stage presence, drink the whole time, prance around in my 5 inch heels, and make ridiculous amounts of wardrobe changes throughout the show. THAT IS WHY THIS TOUR IS A FAILURE!!!

  34. Parisian girl February 15, 2010

    Poor mimo,i feel bad for her,she doesn’t even deserve this flop cuz her new album is good,she just needed to promote it with better singles
    i think she needs a break

  35. G.U.S February 15, 2010

    Mariah is a great and powerful singer!!! !! Mariah go to europe please!!!!!!!!!

  36. Jesse February 15, 2010

    She’never really had Universal appeal in regards to age/ s** or race…40 plus would dread going to a mariah concert *cough susan boyle cough*…and interms of her originale fans they have been deserted with the once great music she made in substitute of the bubblegum garbage she is putting out today as deemed “music”…so as sad to say…she innahilated her own legacy …nobody really gives a toss no more about her…and touring/ filling out arenas is a clear indication of how worthy an entertiner is worth seeing and an acknowlegement of fans out to support..Mimi you are sad to say …depleted

  37. niki February 15, 2010

    its not the bad. keep movin mimi

  38. Heather February 15, 2010

    LOL…3000? Whitney OUTSOLD her recent concert at the tokoyo arena with 11,000 people who attended her concert…and that is just one of the many sold -out concerts she’s performed for…Here’s the break-down on watsup…Whitney appeals to young AND Old …Mariah does NOT.

  48. ANYE February 15, 2010

    I question the mindset from which you wrote this article. Are you saying all the shows she played were 3000seats? Was she unable to sell out in all of them? Why single out just this one? Why didnt you write about her selling out at MSG or some of her other venues. Is DC Mariah’s only market? Is this concert representative of her entire image and career? Why haven’t you written about the positive reviews the shows are getting? You used to preach about her having lost her voice, why not anymore? Always looking for something wrong I see. Just as you do with Rihanna. I wanna say some harsh things but that will be wasting my time. Enjoy your life hating, because ariah certainly is enjoying hers and so are the fans.

  49. GeeMan February 15, 2010

    We talking about a tour stop with all the personal attacks its unnecessary. Ok her tour is not doing well big freakin deal. Mariah is still doing better than many of us regular folks, she has never been huge on the tour front so why is this shocking this was more about appreciation to the fans that have been here through thick and thin. Because in all honesty she is performing more older materials vs. current material. Another stop bringing up other artists in posts that have nothing to do with them and does nothing but make your point sound desperate and patheic I am glad to see Whitney out here touring but at the same time she needs this inorder to see real profit because she make little to nothing from publishing were as Mimi has very strong publishing dating back to yesteryear. Same goes for artists like Britney. My point is instead bashing let’s celebrate their successes.

  50. ANONYMOUS February 15, 2010

  53. Mr.727 February 15, 2010

    @ The One!!! Her music has a shitload to do with her selling tickets! Back in the day Mariah would have sold out in 10 mins, but now with new talent, a new wave of music that has f***** up the industry imo, has effected her quality of material in the last 20 years! To be honesty I got her first CD on my Iphone, but that’s all! She need to leave Def Jam, go back to Columbia and shoot for the last ounce of soul in her voice she has left and make that voice be the Reigning force in music again!!! Her trying to fit in with the teeny boppers has totally caused her to lose that star quality that she has! S*** if her name alone can’t fill A 3,000 seat area, then that goes to show you that people are over her eternal 12 year persona!! Mariah still got it, and if she wants to me #1 again, she has to pull every drawer to make her be back on top!!!! She has gotten lazy with her music, cuz if you go all the way to her debut to Music Box, those are the albums that had soul!!! I understand that things change, and a new trend comes along, but for Mariah she is a legend now, so this s*** she has been doing is no longer acceptable ! I wish she should go back to when she started and really bring the funk! So until she starts sangin again and stop do this , ABC, 123 s***, she’ll continue to fade in the background with the new kids on the block!!!

    Mariah can hit high notes. But her music is vapid garbage. Plus she stiffer than homeless cardboard on a cold winter day. She never learned how to dance. Just irritating the s*** out of folks with her Turrets Syndrome left hand.

  57. LOLOOLLLLL February 16, 2010

    Whitney is doing a world tour, SOLD OUT 3 consecutive nights in Tokyo with 11,000 people every night, going to do another two other concerts in Japan, and then she heads off to Australia and NZ and she’s still adding more dates to her world tour. So quit smearing Whitney’s. Whitney sold out all concerts in the UK and she’s still adding dates. People are there to listen to a LIVE vocalist, not someone who lipsynchs 50% of their performance. Both Whitney and Mariah cannot sing like 20 years ago, but the fact that people are going to see Whitney’s concerts and not Mariah’s, just shows that people want to hear a LIVE VOCALIST singing songs like “I Look To You” and “Greatest Love of All”, not someone who lipsynchs songs like “Obsessed” and “Touch My Body”. See the difference?

  58. YouPutTheLimeInTheCoconut February 16, 2010

    A b**** done fell off, bottom line. Janet Jackson 2.0, period! And speaking of Janet, I thought the lack of sold out shows on her Rock Witchu Tour was a flop. I was obviously wrong!

    Wouldn’t it be that, because she doesn’t tour often, people would be ALL THE MORE interested and excited about going to see her? I mean no matter how you put it, there’s absolutely no excuse whatsoever for one of the top 5 biggest selling female artists in music history to not sell out a 3000 seat show. Not an excuse in the world.

    Rihanna could probably do better than this s***, and THAT’S saying something! SMGDH…

  59. Simon February 16, 2010

    At the end of the day I still love Mimi. Ok yea she isn’t exactly having a career high at the moment but she will be on top again…… she is a legend and has inspired a whole generation of singers just like Whitney has also. As a fan I am happy she seems to be enjoying the tour and her music. I think Memoirs was a bit of a vanity project, she made something she wanted to make, the REAL FANS are still checking for her…. she will be fine. She sure aint losing sleep over it!!!! lol All the haters will all take back what they say when she drops another massive album in a couple of years and she is selling bucket loads again. Mimi is far from over. Touring has never been a strong point throughout her careeer…. I think she would suit a Vegas residency like Celine…. Mimi comes from the old school diva class 🙂

  60. h February 16, 2010

    Sam or Trent or whatever c*** runs this amature “blog.” You’re a f****** biast idiot. She sold out her first couple shows yet you didn’t report on that? You look for negativity. I hope you die. That is all.

  61. antertain February 16, 2010

    Jeremimi let stick with the topic because it’s pointless calling out Sam with derogatory comments like that. It’s toooo tasteless and lacks class getting so personal about a bloody blog post geeeez.

    It wouldn’t be a blog site if some clash of opinions didn’t happen…

    I personally think Sam just does it so the one’s like you can get hype and act all silly. We all know once a Mariah post or a RiRi post come we can’t expect glowing reviews(especially RiRi as she hasn’t got the vocals to ever redeem herself).

    What happen to the days of Anytime you need a friend, without you, On & On, Butterfly etc..
    Mariah need to go back to them sanging days and if she does do songs with tempo then she should be doing that feel good music like It’s Like That, The Roof, Honey, Dreamlover, Heartbreaker remix etc..

    Mariah feels she got things to prove but she doesn’t.
    She need to be singing how we know she can and just enjoy her music.

    She sold out places ‘cus her voice was GREAT and the ballads/hits match her greatness.

    Will the REAL Mariah please stand up!

  62. Stoney-Brie February 16, 2010

    ok i feel the pain!!!!

    the pain of her fans!!!

    i remember a time when Janet!!!

    Janet was slammed painfully by bloggers!!

    Bloggers like TGJ, Toya, Sohh and more…

    it wasn’t easy reading about how bad

    just how bad Janet was doing during her latest tour

    Whlist artists like Mariah and Beyonce where sitting..

    sitting comfortabley in the seats of success

    So their fans also found it easy to bash Janet!

    now i guess the tables turn!!!! ONE DOWN!!!!

    Which is Mariah! c’mon now struggling to fill small venues!!!

  63. Bobby from Bulgaria February 16, 2010

    OK, only the MOST STUPID person on Earth could possibly try to compare a WORLD & a COME BACK tour (Whitney’s) to a US-ONLY regular tour (Mariah’s)… These are just incomparable…

    And I’m gonna say it again – Mariah has NEITHER problem with her music, NOR with her clothing… The problem was with the single choices… And the wrong promotion…

    As for Sam… He doesn’t have the BALLS to post this:
    BULGARIAN DESIGNER SUES BEYONCE!

  64. RIP Old Angel February 16, 2010

    5 Main Reasons Why Mariah Flopped:

    1) She sings with her cheque book not her heart
    2) Her popularity is based on hype, charts manipulations and marketing
    3) She is urban vs pop. Urban is loosing its steam and not trendy anymore!
    4) She is US- based not….. worldwide artist.
    5) She is a VETERAN artist !!!

    🙁

    REALLY? WOW….FLOP…..CANT FILL UP EVEN AN ICE HOCKEY ARENA?! OH WELL…..

    Mariah 40yo and still singing? 🙁

  67. Perez Hillton February 16, 2010

    despite the actual cost, seemed cheap, poorly rehearsed and like she didnt give a crap. she was lazy and aloof. her voice was the only enjoyable part which i could have saved my money and listened to it from home with a cheap beer. and the opening act? terrbile. embarassing to sit through.

  68. nickii February 16, 2010

    Lord why do we always have to go back to the same old deal WHITNEY vs MARIAH or vice verse?? come on now!!! they are two great vocalists in their own right (personally i like Whitney better tho), but it doesn’t mean that Mariah isn’t good too. Some people are just more appealing to you than others. I think that the problem with Mariah is that: she doesn’t connect with her old fans (the one who were there at the beginning like me) because she is more into doing teens music nowadays. This is the main issue that i see, she forgot that the older cloud in their twenties, thirty, ect are the ones who actually are more likely to go out and buy the CDs or those tickets to concerts. We don’t ask her to go back to do the Hero kind of song.. We just want meaningful music, not OBSESSED OR UP OUT OF MY FACE!!

  69. nickii February 16, 2010

    Also, at the person who said that Whitney is solding out main areans because it’s a world tour and that it’s her comeback………ummmm no boo, she always had even before when she was still on her thing you know what i mean…….???thank you!

    Mariah just needs to take some time of, and she will come back bigger than ever, with great music hopefully!

  70. Give It Up, Fatso February 16, 2010

    I dont get it..why there are still few ppl bother with this fat cow boobs Diva !!! 🙁

    Someone please make this has been sit down and stay in the kitchen..

  71. Slick February 16, 2010

    I went to her Concert in Chicago (2 shows do to popular demand) and I can say that she still very much has a Great voice. Mariah can still sing the old style Ballads, she just chooses not to. But the good news is that her GRAND voice is till there. I also think it is very unfair just to post the numbers for just the unsold out shows…BTW she was FANTASTIC!

  72. 1st and Last February 16, 2010

    I went to her Angel concert. Never again !!!!

  73. Lily Gaga February 16, 2010

    Several tickets had to be given away for the MSG show. You lambs are pathetic.

  74. MushyLove_1992 February 16, 2010

    @Mr.727

    Agreed.

    Its a shame people can downtalk and be hateful towards real talent, but praise people with no talent at all. Making up excuses as to why they sound a hot ass mess. Mariah still has it, she just has to realize it first. She doesn’t have to do this bubblegum pop mess to be successful…

  75. dissatisfied fan 85 February 16, 2010

    If you knock off about 15 minutes total Carey spent off stage for a costume change, she performed for about 70 minutes. With top ticket prices reaching $130 plus extras, it wouldn’t be unfair to raise the question of value for money and her ethics.

    I am so glad this tour isn’t making money and miserably flopped !

  76. whatever February 16, 2010

    She has no other talents other singing. Thats about it.

    Enough of pretending and stroking as if Mariah’s some kind of female Pope !

  77. Bobby D February 16, 2010

    People that dont even care for Mariah Carey or her music would have attended this show if the TICKETS WERENT SO MUCH MONEY.

    Hell Im a MC fan and I cant even go cuz its so much money. we in a recession, b******!

  78. Madonna Highest Grossing Female of All Time February 16, 2010

    Mariah: 3000 tickets – 75% sold 🙁
    Madonna: 80,000 tickets – 100% @ sold out 🙁

  79. Gillyberto February 16, 2010

    NO WAY!!!
    Tickets were $150.00 but she is not worth that amount

  80. Fly Away, Mimi February 16, 2010

    Adios, Mimi!!! It’s about time!!! Good riddance!!!

  81. Cashh February 16, 2010

    Its sad when pple have no clue what their talking about, she’s done numerous shows where they have been sold out, and some where they were not sold out buh had almost been , with her ranging in the 75%-85% percintale Before y’all go calling her a flop , im gonna need y’all to know at least half the facts . . . . & the press reviews have been really good for her.

  82. Mike February 16, 2010

    her Billboard 18th Number Ones is worthless if you ask me 🙁

  83. Mike February 16, 2010

    MADONNA IS THE BEST SELLING FEMALE ARTIST ALL TIME , HoRIAH ONLY THE QUEEN OF BACK TO BACK FLOPS

    Take a rest, Lambs!

  84. Rest My Case February 16, 2010

    Maybe if she didn’t dress like she was 25 yrs younger and 3 sizes smaller people would take her seriously again. The d-bag attention seeker husband and drunken award show appearances can’t be helping either.

  85. Fat, drunk, and ugly, Mariah! February 16, 2010

    Stick a fork in this pig! She is done! LOL!

  86. MS.CLAY February 16, 2010

    LMAO @ MARIAH’S FAILURE. IT’S NOT SUPPOSED BE FUNNY BUT DAMN I CAN’T HELP BUT LAUGH! I ACTUALLY FEEL SORRY FOR HER! SHE SHOULD HAVE GIVEN UP A LLLLOOOOOOOOOOONNNGGGGGGG TIME AGO CUZ HER VOICE HAS GOTTEN DISGRACEFUL AND HER BODY IS THAT OF TRAILER TRASH. I LOVE MARIAH OR I USED TO LOVE MARIAH BUT SHE IS DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  87. The E N D February 16, 2010

    She is done!!!

    Now close this thread Sam ! 🙂

  88. mariah’s biggest fan February 19, 2010

    its soooooooo fuking sad how these people only highlight the bad in mariah’s career yet wont show the positives. why dpes it bother you people that she dresses s***?? who says that u have to be a certain age to dress a certain way???? who gives you the right to decide what a 40 year old woman should wear??? why post hateful comments if u hate her why not just leave it alone???? if u want her career to be over why commenting about her which gives her free publicity good or bad??? why look at such talent and what she has done for the industry and then slam her because SHE, not u she wants to try something new whats so wrong with her reinventing herself??? u speak about madonna yet madonna has been in the industry wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy longer than mariah!!!!!! mariah is reinventing herself to fi the new age and matbe she likes it yet madonna has reinvented herself how many times??? yet u dont complain, of course madonna sold more tickets shes more of an entertainer than a singer, if u wana see dancing go to a theater. and how dare u compare mariah to rihanna and fyi rihanna van not sell more tickets than mariah infact she was boooed the other day. and oh yeah you speak about whitney and her tour, i personally like whitney but hello her tour in korea which u speak of yes u spoke about it, was a flop. even though it was sold out her voice cracked more than 10 times literally and i have proof to back this. whitney’s voice cannot compare to mariah’s anymore its gone even though i love hwer but mariah is eternal. i fell what alot of u say about mariah yeah she should go back to singing what she used to but come on, if she doesnt want to its her choice and her voice sounds really strong on this new tour but it could be better, i heard her perform emotions and she did all the whistle notes and more and dont get me started on daydream. mariah just neeeds to take at least 2 years off and just rest her voice and she will be back like a diva. and oh btw b4 i 4get, the time most of u haters spend hating on mariah could have been used to further your education as it is evident that most of u cant spell or formulate proper sentences. that is all

  89. good riddance February 19, 2010

    She should get over it!

    She was even super late in her Dallas concert and people started booing until she came out!

    I am not surprised she’s flopping!

  93. Mariah Fan who left February 21, 2010
