Flashback: Mariah Carey & Madonna Clash In 1995

Published: Saturday 18th Dec 2010 by Trent

Many people think that beefs only occur in Hip-Hop (not including the Christina Aguilera’s countless feuds across various genres). However, Pop divas have been known for their battles in the media as well.

One such example is the infamous clash between Mariah Carey and Madonna. Following an almost identical script to the current quarrel between Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim, the duo engaged in a rather public feud in 1995 when Madonna felt threatened by Carey’s meteoric rise to success as her own career had begun to slump.

The way that Carey handled that situation is a shining example of proper media training. Not only did she shut Madonna down just like Whitney Houston and Janet Jackson did after being attacked by the ‘Vogue’ singer themselves, she did it while keeping things classy. Fatality.

Thoughts?

    ouchhhhhhhhhhhhh

  8. Ghetto Fab December 18, 2010

    Yes!! Madonna could never come for the three Divas! She’s always trying our divas and they just snap back on her old hag ass lol. She did it to Whitney first, then Janet, and then Mariah. She was clearly pressed and bothered by their massive success. You could tell she’s bothered by any competition.

    Mariah is known for that classy subtle shade. LOL

    • Winchester July 4, 2014

      01. How can Madonna snap back at Whitney when madonna was hailed 2nd best artist of the 80’s next to Michael? Madonna is the only female artist of the 80’s to have more top tens and number 1 us singles than any other females?

      02. when did madonna shade on janet? NEVER. i even recall madonna praising janet as a better dancer than his brother michael.

      03. Madonna’s career is far obvioulsy better than mariah in the longest run. the last we know madonna hits the top ten us 100 whilst mariah had no such hit round the top ten, madonna had sold out arenas, number album for 2012, a golden globe win and now she’s rising again for 2014 for a much awaited album while mariah’s album is nowehere to be noticed.

  9. Ariana December 18, 2010

    Damn!!! Mariah’s always been such a classy lady when asked about others “unpleasant” opinions. Some people who attack her should do the same, it’s not her fault being that wonderful, if you don’t like her well… that’s ok, as long as you don’t act like an ass. Mariah responded perfectly to that question, you can tell she’s definitely BRIGHT!, right Madonna? 😀

    • Winchester July 4, 2014

      Madonna is known for her bitchiness, no doubt about that. cause Madonna is Madonna, but when you talk about class, puhleease dont put mariah on the list, she was DRUNk while accepting her award for best supporting actress. so much for CLASS.

  10. getting_licked_out December 18, 2010

    LOL ooooh thats cold mimi haha

  11. True Blue December 18, 2010

    Gotta toss shade at Christina whenever you can, right Trent? And what beefs has she had outside of pop? If you’re talking about Fred Durst, you should know that he was always the one instigating s***, INCLUDING with X Tina.

  12. Time To Shine December 18, 2010

    MADONNA IS THE QUEEN OF POP! MARIAH WHO ???

    MADONNA IS FAR BETTER THAN ALL YOUR BLACK DIVAS AND I’M BLACK BOY.

  13. MissImpartial December 18, 2010

    THIS IS TURNING INTO THE MARIAH CAREY TRIBUTE WEBSITE.

  14. Time To Shine December 18, 2010

    @ INGRID OKONTA

    MADONNA LAST TOUR GROSS 400 MILLIONS $

    MARIAH WHO?

  15. royalkev December 18, 2010

    This was a bit similar. Madonna was always picking on someone. She didn’t get too out of hand with Whitney, but Janet and Mimi did have to check her a few times. Mimi is definitely > than Madge. I liked how she handled herself there.

    • Winchester July 4, 2014

      B**** stop putting fuel on Madonna shading Whitney or the other way around, coz i’ve been in the 80’s long enough to know that both divas never shade each other publicly. madonna praises whitney’s voice, beauty and wit, and same with Whitney that she respects madonna. And for janet? she never shaded on janet, madonna was even baffled why janet stanned on madonna about her having more class on dancing than the pop queen. and with mariah, the only thing that mariah can compare with madonna’s success is her cone-shaped bra. MADONNA is way tooooo overall talented and inspiring.

  16. Mark Allen December 18, 2010

    I admit that wasn’t a very nice comment from Madonna but come on, how can Mariah say that she hasn’t paid attention to Madonna SINCE she was popular? Mariah Carey is a fantastic singer but Madonna is and always will be more popular than her.

  17. RAY December 18, 2010

    MARAIAH CAREY MAYBE LEGENDARY, BUT IN THE END MADONNA IS THE QUEEN OF POP,
    SHE HAS MANAGED TO STAY OVER A LONGER PERIOND OF TIME THAN MARAIAH WHO IS STRUGGLING TO.
    BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY,THERE’S MORE ROOM FOR MORE THAN ONE ICON
    ALL THOSE WOMEN MADONA,MARAIAH,WHITNEY AND JANET ARE ALL VERY ICONIC..SO THEY ALL WIN.

  18. RAY December 18, 2010

    *MARIAH*

  19. royalkev December 18, 2010

    @ Ghetto fab, what did she say to Whitney? … I remembered she was nervous during the Waiting to Exhale years, where she speak of having a dream that Whitney placed higher than her on the charts with the Exhale. It’s almost like she was trying to get on her good side. It came true later! Lol.

  20. True Blue December 18, 2010

    And this is the first time I’m hearing about such feuds. How come no one talks about them? It’s as if they’re swept under the rug.

  21. BLACK December 18, 2010

    Yall act like MAriah carey wasnt throwing shade at Other singers too? did we forget when her and JENNIFER LOPEZ clash it out in the media…..

  22. NAS ( B Rockah Stan 4eva) December 18, 2010

    LMAOOOOOOOO… That’s the best one!

  25. MISHKA December 18, 2010

    I think it’s okay for artists of the same age range and of the same music era to beef since they are all trying to go big and at the same time:

    MADONNA VS JANET
    JAY Z VS NAS
    BRANDY VS AALIYAH
    KANYE VS 50CENT
    BRITNEY VS CHRISTINA

    On the other hand, it doesn’t make any kind of sense when somebody older, who actually found success and fame during his/her glorious day comes (out of nowhere) to beef with a newcomer who hasn’t stood the test of time already.

    LIL KIM VS NICKI MINAJ it’s like :

    MADONNA VS LADY GAGA
    WHITNEY VS BEYONCE
    JANET VS CIARA
    BRITNEY VS MILEY
    DR DRE VS KANYE

    Those beefs would have been STUPID and USELESS !

    Lil’Kim is ruining the rest of “legacy” she had left – after her plastic surgeries- in this beef.

    What I find funny is that I was not interested in Nicki Minaj’s music until Lil’Kim started that ish. I remember saying to myself: “Is Nicki really that good to get Kim’s attention? Maybe I should listen to her stuff”. I’m still not a fan of Minaj but my nephews and nieces love her so good for her.

    Before I end this , I must say Lil’Kim was not even the biggest female rap act of her and my era. The biggest and most successful female rapper was and is MISSY ELLIOT. FOXY BROWN and EVE did pretty well too. Lil’Kim is delusional.

    IKR? LOLL.. The way she shakes her head and is just smiling away for about five mins afterwards. I literally can’t.

  27. PEPPERLEGEND December 19, 2010

    You would think that Mariah would come up with a comeback that actually makes sence. FAIL. Long live Madonna the QUEEN of Pop!

    Eh, J.Lo kind of deserves it. And she’s a year older than Mariah, so she can take it.

    @ Mishka:

    Grace Jones has beef with Gaga, though.

  30. royalkev December 19, 2010

    @ Mishka, that’s such a good point!

    @ Timmi, the head shaking looks like…yea, I said I don’t know her… NEXT!!!!! Jlo was huge at that time!

  31. Mariah is DA VOICE December 19, 2010

    Thank you Trent for always paying homage to our Queen – Mariah!

    @ Ray

    FYI, just because Mariah is so talented and creative, she had to crossover other genres of music (R&B, Hip Hop), if she stick to just Pop music people now would be calling her the Queen of Pop. But Mariah expresses herself in her music and she is passionate about diverse genres of music.

    Mariah’s creativity, originality, talent, voice, sales, personality, appearance >>>> Madonna’s gimmicks to sell records

    Go buy Mariah Carey’s new christmas ablum, already a classic – “Merry Christmas II You” in stores now or on Itunes too!

    @TRUE BLUE

    Christina Aguilara fueded with Eminem as well.

    But anyways,

    Everyone else pretty much said it

    Mariah >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Madonna.

    Madonna has always been insecure.

    I remember her saying she had a nightmare that Whitney Houston was going to take her spot at #1 on the hot 100 and the next week it really happened.

  33. Migrator December 19, 2010

    What the f*** was the point of this post?
    I’m a big fan of Mariah’s but this is truly irrelevant.

  34. TIMMI December 19, 2010

    @PEPPERLEGEND

    What part didn’t you understand my darling? Allow me to be of your assistance.

    She said she hadn’t paid attention to Madonna since she was in 7th and 8th grade when she was popular. Shot one fired – Basically she said Madonna is irrelevant now.

    She then because of Madonna’s irrelevancy she “didn’t hear that”. Shot two – She basically said she doesn’t need to respond to Madonna’s hate because she don’t pay attention to her.

    Now what part don’t you understand?

    Madonna has still sold more than Mariah though! Respect the queen of pop Trent.

  37. PEPPERLEGEND December 19, 2010

    @TIMMI Are you for real?

    Madonna’s last world tour ‘Sticky & Sweet’ is the higest grossing tour ever by any solo artist. Does Mariah have that title? No.

    Mariah’s comment was a FAIL because Madonns IS and ALWAYS WILL BE more popular than her.

    OUT!

  38. Carly December 19, 2010

    It’s funny how then later on history Mariah took shots at J-Lo when Jennifer was getting massive success and Mariah’s started decreasing. However I don’t think Jennifer ever replied…not sure.

    I wonder when the next female rapper comes and Nicki will be taking shots at her. haha

  39. Mariah is DA VOICE December 19, 2010

    @ PEPPERLEGEND

    Madonna did her last tour like it was her last and that’s why it had so many dates and grossed so much.

    And Mariah is only 40, she has yet a lot of things going on for her such as babies, marriage. She will have many more albums and tours.

  40. Pop Fanatic December 19, 2010

    Madonna is currently the richest female musician(and I use that word loosely) in the world. But for some reason I think in about 5-10 years Beyonce will have more money for some reason.

  41. Jason December 19, 2010

    Mariah is a fantastic singer, she’s known for her vocal prowess. Madonna on the other hand is the greatest female artist in music history….there is a HUGE difference. Madonna is the star that ALL other female artist are compared to. Her music, albums, reinventions, videos are/were events. She wrote about topics 20+ years ago that artists today would be terrified to touch. Mariah Carey wrote great love songs while Madonna was busy changing the world. Empowerment, spirituality, abuse, death, live, s**, love, religion, the A*** crisis and power are all deeper themes then a typical love ballad from Mariah. Make no mistake I love Mariah Carey and always go see her live but some of her fans seem to think to be a great artist one has to have a remarkable voice. Well the Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Diana Ross, Billie Holiday, The Rolling Stones, Dolly Parton etc etc aren’t “technically” great vocalists but they’re some of the greatest artists in music history. The same applies to Madonna.

    Music would probably be the same if Mariah Carey didn’t exist (we’d still have Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Christina, Leona etc) but music can be divided into 2 periods; those that came before Madonna, and those that came after.

  42. Traci Summers December 19, 2010

    ROOKIES NEVER WIN. LEGENDS WILL ALWAYS SLAY THEM. LIKE I KEEP TELLING U DELUSIONAL STANS. NICKI IS GOING TO LOSE BADLY VERY SOON TRUST ME. KIM HASNT FULLY KILLED HER YET. KIMMY DONT PLAY DAT S***. SHE BEEN SHOWIN NICKI LOVE N NICKI IS BEING A B****.. NAWW. NICKI HAS NO TALENT AND ITS STARTING TO SHOW TRUST ME NICKI WILL B LONG GONE THIS TIME NEXT YEAR

  43. Mariah is DA VOICE December 19, 2010

    @ Jason

    Honey just have a seat. Your argument is weak at best!!!

    By the way that is the most ridiculuous thing I have ever read in a while.

    First of all, you say first that you love Mariah and THEN you say music would be the same if she didn’t exist. Don’t you think you contradict yourself? Hater much?

    Second of all, if it wasn’t for Mariah Carey there would not be Chrstina, Beyonce, Leona and other singers who constantly state Mariah as their number one inspiration for starting singing. We can hear Mariah’s songs sung by millions of people on shows such as American Idol, The X Factor and other music shows. This shows how much influential Mariah is.

    Millions of people try to emuliate her incredible singing style!

    Third of all, Mariah doesn’t write only LOVE SONGS!! Have you heard of “Hero”, Anytime You Need a Friend”, “Through The Rain”, “Amazing Grace”, “Outside” , “Can’t Take That Away” etc……. These songs save people’s lifes!!!!!!!!!! Thousand of lifes. Mariah’s music inspires people to never give up and be strong no matter what.

    Mariah is a world wide class act. LEGEND

    Do not ever compare her to people (Madonna) who do gimmicks and say “that is how they express themselves” only in order to sell records.

    Mariah >>>>>>>>>> Madonna

    Bye Bye hun, stay pressed

  44. BLACK December 19, 2010

    in 10-15 years, beyonce will be bigger and richer than Madonna….Real talk

  45. TIMMI December 19, 2010

    @PEPPERLEGEND

    This video wasn’t made last year when Madonna was touring “Sticky & Sweet” so that was kind of irrelevant.

    Mariah is the solo artist with the most number ones.

    Mariah writes her own music.

    Mariah can actually sing.

    Does Madonna have any of these titles? In her LONGER SPANNING career than Mariah’s?

    NEXT.

  46. Mooriah December 19, 2010

    Manriah forever throwing shade. She is just like Lil Kim, past her prime. Have a seat… Leona has snatched your wig boo boo. Exit stage left, thank you.

    SN: take Trent with you. bah-bye 🙂

    When Madonna stans try to drag other stan groups they always use the Sticky And Sweet Tour gross. After that they run out of fuel. Celine>>>

    Mariah Covers UK’s Pride Magazine

    “There aren’t many true superstar icons left. But the biggest-selling female artist of all time has consistently delivered solid musical content over a 20-year period with an unmatched record-breaking checklist. Married to honorary Nickelodeon chairman, actor, comedian and TV and radio host Nick Cannon, Mariah Carey is a lady who’s often misunderstood, misquoted and underestimated. With a fast, snappy repertoire and an even faster lifestyle, this girl can’t be held down. Since their marriage two years ago, the pair have been hunted by the world’s press, bloggers and naysayers searching for every tiny detail about the life of the new Mrs Mariah Carey-Cannon. Here she lies back on her favourite chaise longue and reveals all to Pride about her new album Merry Christmas II You, which has just stormed to the number-one spot on Billboard’s R’n’B albums and holiday albums charts, the journey thus far and her new path, which includes a new happiness, a new life and a whole new hope for a baby in a new Obama world…

    Congratulations on your new album, which has debuted at number one on Billboard’s R’n’B albums and holiday albums charts! Why did you choose to do another Christmas album?
    Well, it’s been a while since my first Christmas album, Merry Christmas, and this year I was full of excitement about becoming a mum, and it felt right to make this album. Also, I was really inspired by classic Christmas songs by Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole and festive, timeless, fun Christmas records by the likes of Jackson 5 and Donnie Hathaway. In the spirit of classic Christmas records made in the 1950s, we had a huge orchestra session, and I’ve never experienced anything so beautiful and rich in my musical career as being in the room listening to the lush orchestral moments.

    You mum, Patricia Carey, who’s a trained opera singer, is on the track “O Come All Ye Faithful/Hallelujah Chorus” with you. Will we be hearing any more collaborations between you two in the future?
    Well, many people already know that my mother is a trained opera singer, so I guess it was only a matter of time before we both got on to a record together. Doing “O Come All Ye Faithful” and the “Hallelujah Chorus” seemed like a perfect choice for both of our voices, which are very different in terms of style and tone and everything. It was lovely experience being in the studio together, and I’m very happy that I have this documented for the rest of my life.

    What’s your favourite track on the album, and why?
    It’s always difficult when I’m asked that. As a writer and producer, all my songs are very close to me. I love that I have been able to combine festive sounds with more soulful sounds that very talented people like Big Jim Wright have helped me with. Jim’s worked with everybody from Sounds of Blackness to Aretha Franklin; he’s Mo’Nique’s musical director; and we wrote “Fly Like a Bird” together, so this record’s a bit more soulful than Merry Christmas was. Also, I worked with James Poyser from The Roots; we worked together on The Emancipation of Mimi and this time on “When Christmas Comes,” the R’n’B single from this album, which is very inspired by 70s soul music.

    You’ve won five Grammy awards and had 18 number-one singles; what is your favourite song that you’ve every written?
    All of my songs are special to me, as I write and produce all of them, so each stems from a personal place. Some are about relationships, bad times, good times, special people in my life and amazing moments. I love them all, but “Close My Eyes” and the whole Butterfly album are very special to me. Of course, my Christmas songs are very close to me because I love Christmas so much and listen to them every holiday season.

    Rumours about your pregnancy have been non-stop really since you and Nick got married. Did you feel under pressure to start a family?
    It’s hard to explain. I am always grateful and know that I have been blessed with my life and experiences. But it gets to the point where you become scared to leave the house in case photos look like you’re pregnant when you’re not. The constant questions from the press, the pressure that puts on you as a woman, the questions from your families and friends — it’s quite overwhelming. It becomes worrying to even go online to read the news or check emails in case you read some mean untruths about yourself. It’s a lot of pressure, but I can handle whatever life throws at me, and we knew when God wanted us to be blessed, we would be.

    How did you know that Nick Cannon was The One?
    We both knew. There was no denying the way we both felt — it’s just real.

    A lot of people said that your relationship with Nick was a publicity stunt. How did you guys feel about those reports at the time? How do you feel about the criticism you and Nick sometimes face about the difference in age?
    I try not to pay attention to what people say. People have been saying things about me my whole life. I understand that people have opinions about people in the public eye, but if I focused on that stuff I wouldn’t have time to live. Also, the age difference in my first marriage was double what this is, the opposite way. People always have something to say when they sell papers or gossip because they’re bored or jealous.

    Congratulations on your pregnancy! Have you had any weird cravings? How is carrying a child changing now?
    Cherry Jell-O — I think you Brits call it jelly! The one thing I am overjoyed about, aside from being blessed finally with the best gift that anyone can ever receive, is the fact that our child will grow up in a new world that I could never have imagined when I was a child. Having Obama in office and bringing a child into the world at this point is totally different than me feeling like an outcast when I was growing up and not feeling like it was okay to be ethnically diverse, and I can’t believe that we have arrived at this point within society. Like many people, I thought it would be a million miles away. I think it’s a little bit easier now because the world has changed just in terms of identifying yourself. That always felt like a strange thing to me as a child; not looking the same as your own mother or father was a very different thing back then, and as my parents weren’t together when I was a kid, I’m happy that my child will have a unity that was lacking in my early life.

    Can you recall the story of where you were when you realised you were pregnant? Were you and Nick together>
    I was at home. I took a test by myself and then another one and another one. And when Nick got home, I showed him the first, second and third tests, and then we did another one together.

    What are your hopes and fears for your child coming into this world?
    I imagine, like all other parents-to-be, we just want them to be safe, healthy and happy and be the best human beings that they can be.

    How much of a diva are your really?
    I’m a strong woman who works extremely hard to be able to have my life the way I want it. So, if that makes me a diva, then okay.

    Who do you admire out of the new breed of divas?
    I don’t really follow every new act — they come out constantly. There are so many, it’s often hard to keep track, and sometimes they’re here today and gone tomorrow. I admire my friends, like Beyonce and Nicki Minaj — people who seem destined to be doing this for a living with longevity.

    What do you make of the new women making waves in the industry, like Rihanna and Willow Smith? Do you feel in competition with them? Are you intimidated by the talent coming through?
    I feel there’s always enough room in the charts for everyone. The true stars will have staying power, and only history will show who those are.

    You have had a very successful and long-standing career, but it’s also been bumpy along the way. What would you say was your lowest point? Is there anything you regret or would change?
    There aren’t many long-standing careers that exist that haven’t had a couple of bumps on the journal — life is full of shade and light. There have been highs and lows, and I take them all in my stride. I know that God will never give me anything to deal with that I can’t handle. You can’t live with regrets — it’s about the journey!”

  50. Ghetto Fab December 19, 2010

    Dead @ someone saying Grace Jones has beef with Gaga. As if an Icon as crazy like that even spends a second of her day thinking about Gaga LMAO. Grace was pressed about the situation. The reporter asked about Gaga and she gave her opinion. Period end of story. She’s entitled to her opinion. To say that she has beef with her is laughable lol. I’m a huge Gaga fan but she could NEVER come for Grace.

  51. royalkev December 19, 2010

    @ Jason, I think you , Madonna fans seem to think that she’s always been the superior artist amognst all her peers. I don’t think anything is further from the truth. I always feel that Madonna should just thank her lucky stars that she’s continued to be the most available.

    Whitney was the artist with the highest selling (peaks) in her prime for her 5eras(including the Preacher’s wife) that she ruled in before the heavy drug addiction. She was absent after the 90’s. She was hitting the jackpot over and over! It would have easily been Madonna’s doom if she was committed to finishing the race!

    Mariah Carey was certainly the most consistent seller of them all with her body of work (in the last 20 years). For the most part she outsold and attained more hits than Madonna in this time. Thank goodness for that 7 years lead Madonna had, otherwise there would be a newly crowed champion of sales. The fact stands that if you total up all their studio album sales Mariah would come out on top. Madonna has the most greatest hits albums (6 in all) and 51 million generated in those sales. It was a recycling of the same songs being packaged and released over and over.

    As far as her competition with Janet, between 1986(where Janet first got established – 2004(the year of the Superbowl horror), she only released 6 studios albums(with 1 greatest hits album). She taken (2) – 3year breaks and (3)- 4year breaks. If she was releasing at the rate Madonna did, I’m sure she would have certainly acquired more than the100million in album sales that was done with very little material out.

    Madonna has released 8 albs and 5 G.H. packages. All I’m saying is that Madonna made albums available the way someone would that’s fearful of being too disposable. In the end she benefitted from it most.

    @TIMMI

    Uhh this was in 1995 so you don’t say!

    Madonna may not have had as many No.1’s as her but she’s still more popular.
    Madonna DOES write her own music, her first song ‘Everybody’ was written by her. Maybe you should do some research into artists before you comment.

    @JASON has said it all. A lot of people (like yourself) think you have to have a remarkable voice to be a great artist. BRILLIANT COMMENT!

    @ Beyonce Owns Your Fav (I’m calling you BOYF, cause your full name is too much to type on a phone): Yeah, there’s that too, but Em was beefing with everyone as well. The ones that Christina started or fed into were always artists within her genre. Not that I’m excusing her for those beefs, but Trent grossly exaggerated when he said she feuded with artists of various genres. You end up thinking that she actually fought with artists of every genre. Would’ve been more accurate to just say she feuded with various artists.

    Anyway, I once heard somewhere that Whitney said she would never want her kid to be like Madonna (or something to that effect). If true, was it after or before she went after Whitney?

  55. PEPPERLEGND December 19, 2010

    @Mariah is DA VOICE

    Can you name one of Mariah’s tours that out did Madonna? Because I can’t. I am actually a fan of Carey as I’ve listened to her music for years but when it comes down to it I’ll always prefer Madonna. She’s just so much more interesting!

  56. TIMMI December 19, 2010

    @PEPPERLEGEND

    Where did that song chart on the Billboard Hot 100? Oh… It didn’t. Madonna is renowned for songs like “Like a Virgin”, which, she did not actually write.

    And no, it’s not at all about me thinking an artist MUST have a brilliant voice. It depends on what type of artist they are. I enjoy several artists who do not have “remarkable” voices” (thanks for complimenting Mimi BTW ;)) because they compensate with other talents, such as dancing and all round performance/stage presence. Madonna would be one of these artists.

    I don’t have gripes with Madonna, the only reason we’re having this discussion is because I was explaining to you what Mariah said because you inaccurately said it “never made sense.” You then went on to try and slander Mariah by talking about titles Madonna holds that Mariah doesn’t, when in fact, there are several titles Mariah has that Madonna doesn’t. It works both ways you see. And in case you didn’t guess, I prefer Mariah of the two so obviously I felt it necessary to defend my favourite artist like you did yours. Madonna started this first, this was Mariah’s RESPONSE, let’s remember that. Besides that, like I said, no gripes with Madonna.

  57. True Blue December 19, 2010

    @ Ghetto Fab:

    Gaga always admired Grace and always spoke of her as being one of her biggest inspirations. Her dream was to collaborate with her. Now if Grace doesn’t feel the same way, that’s perfectly fine, but it wasn’t necessary for her to be a total b**** about it. Gaga didn’t do anything to deserve such a nasty response. Clearly Grace feels threatened by her if she had to react the way she did, just like Lil Kim feels threatened by Nicki.

    Also, there’s a photo of Grace posing with Gaga, which I presume was taken before Grace dissed her. I can’t post a link to it, but you can google it.

  58. I Look to CRACK December 19, 2010

    OMG WHY JUST WHY BRING THIS UP?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
    But I love this.
    From what I remember…BEFORE Madonna made that comment, Mariah said something along the lines of “I grew up on Madonna’s music”, which Madonna obviously took as an offense to her age. The only explanation was jealousy. Mariah was right in the middle of her Daydream album (and if you were alive then, you would know that Daydream was a major event), and Madonna’s career was lacking.
    And to the Madonna fans who are *trying* to discredit Mariah’s impact in the music business: give up. They’re both in a league of their own. They’re both on top, but on different mountains. They both had balls, but they swung them in different directions.

  59. Dale December 19, 2010

    For the retards out there who keep saying Mariah who let me refresh your memories.. Mariah Carey? 18 number ones? has more solo number 1’s then anyone else? Most succesful female artist to date? Fairly dissed Mandonna back in 95? Mariah Carey the girl who is still topping the charts to this day? and then theres mandonna who looks like she’s dead, an gave up on her career because no one actually likes her and her albums flopped since the 90’s Mariah was righ to dis her!

  60. sparky December 19, 2010

    I’m a Mariah and Madonna fan but realisticly the better singer is Mariah but by far Madonna is still the better artist.

    You can’t deny it people. Mariah doesn’t cause as much hype as Madonna does. Just having the most No.1s isn’t enough!

  61. TIMMI December 19, 2010

    @SPARKY

    I can honestly say I would rather go to a concert and watch Mariah stand in one spot and sing than go and watch Madonna dance around with lighting, props, stage effects and whatever else. I’m not speaking for EVERYONE, that’s just my personal opinion.

  62. pepperlegend December 19, 2010

    @TIMMI

    I only brought up the S&S tour title because you said Madonna is irrelevant. And I didn’t SLANDER Mariah because inspite of what I said, I am actually a fan of hers. I just think the comment she made was stupid because she brought popularity into it when everyone knows that Madonna is a million times more popular. You said Madonna can’t sing. Is that slander? I was just defending my favourite artist too.

  63. I Look to CRACK December 19, 2010

    Define “artist” SPARKY?
    The core of Madonna’s artistry is based on her image. It always has been; theres no arguing it. MTV really helped catapult her career with the Lucky Star video, and then with the Like a Virgin performance at the MTV awards. Whereas Mariah’s artistry was (or heavily advertised, anyway) her voice. She said herself that the initial Vision of Love video had her lying on a bed with a bra on, but she refused to follow, because she didn’t want to be seen as the latest “teen idol” a la Debbie Gibson, Tiffany, etc., but rather as a singer/songwriter.
    And to be frank, Madonna’s most groundbreaking work ended by 1987. After that, Mariah took over as the top female trend setter in the industry, until 1998. We haven’t seen another female to succeed Madonna and Mariah…but the only person I can think of right now is GaGa…but her music and image is heavily borrowed from her preceding idols (Madonna, Cher, Cyndi Lauper, Grace Jones)

  64. Mark Allen December 19, 2010

    @DALE Everyone is entiteld to their own opinion but really,

    Madonna has never had an album that flopped. FACT #1

    Mariah has never had an album that flopped. FACT #2

    Some people prefer Madonna, some people prefer Mariah. That’s all cool. There’s no need to disrespect people.

  65. Nichole December 19, 2010

    Why doesn’t everyone under this post just STFU, and respect these two icons? They have both inspired, and influenced a legion of singers all across the world.

    Madonna – Possibly the greatest female Pop artist of all time
    Mariah – One of the greatest singers of all time

    And for the person who brought up J.Low, Mariah didn’t start jack squat with her. J.Low started that feud, when she became a thief and stole a sample Mariah was supposed to use back in 2001 called “Firecracker.” JaRule and Irv Gotti came out explained the situation, so we know the deal.

    J.LOW and Tommy were trying to sabotage Mariah, but who cares because J.LOW’S musical days are over. That just shows you that true talent prevails, which is one of the main reasons why Mariah is still here and relevant 20 years later.

  67. sparky December 19, 2010

    @I LOVE TO CRACK

    Well anyone who spends their lives been creative is an artist. I agree with you though. Madonna has always been famous for her image. It’s never been her voice that got her where she is today. It’s a different story with Mariah.

    Both are legends but my personal favourite has to be Madonna 🙂

  68. True Blue December 19, 2010

    @ I look to crack:

    MJ’s image as a video artist also played a huge role in his success, even though his music stands on its own, just as Madonna’s does. Are you gonna argue that as a result he is less of an artist then say, Stevie Wonder?

    Though it has been said that Janet made a quite peculiar but ‘un-called for’ comment about Madonna’s video ‘Justify my love’. (IT CAN BE FOUND ON YOU-TUBE – POSSIBLY “JANET JACKSON INTERVIEW’S 1991”)

  75. Juan December 19, 2010

    Mariah Carey is definitely one of the best artists that I’ve ever seen. She’s got such a great voice… I can’t believe that Madonna talked s*** about her. The problem is that Madonna has always struggled to sell records since the 90s… She was definitely envious of Mariah (because she sold extremely well and was a very good artist). I think that now Madonna wants to be “your friend” so she can sell more… That’s why she “likes” Britney or Lady Gaga… I just hope Madonna retires soon… Her music and videos are so boring, the music industry does not need her flops

  76. DION-ISH December 19, 2010

    @JUAN

    Is that why after 25yrs shes STILL relevant??

  77. Juan December 19, 2010

    @ DION – ISH

    I don’t think that she’s SO relevant… At least, that is not seen on the American charts… The problem is that singers like Lady Gaga, Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera are always inspired by her videos, so people think of Madonna because of that.

    It has to do with whether you like her or not. I just think that artists like Mariah Carey or Kylie Minogue are far better

  78. Spunkypoop December 19, 2010

    HERE IS THE LATEST MESSAGE FROM THE ONE AND ONLY MADONNA via TWITTER:

    “”Its official! I need to move. I need to sweat. I need to make new music! Music I can dance to. I’m on the look out for the maddest, sickest, most bad ass people to collaborate with. I’m just saying……” – Madonna

  79. DION-ISH December 19, 2010

    @ Juan:

    See my above posts about Madonna’s albums being consecutively #1in the 00s on the American charts. All of those albums were certified platinum multiple times each, so how has she been struggling to sell records since the 90s? Would it kill you people to look up things and know the facts before talking out of your ass?

    And isn’t having new crop of artists borrowing from you the best way of proving that you are relevant? If future generations aren’t keeping your work alive in some form, then what else will?

  82. pepperlegend December 19, 2010

    Just one more thing I’d like to point out:

    The only thing about Mariah Carey that I critisized was her comment. I never said anything about her work. It’s so lame how people feel they have to disrespect artists to ‘defend’ their own favourite artist.

    This piece of s*** ‘News’ is from 1995 and it’s nearly 2011. I’m not wasting my time on this s*** anymore. It shouldn’t even have been brought up!

    MADONNA and MARIAH CAREY are Legends but I will always prefer MADONNA.

    OUT FOR REALS!

    @ True Blue: I’m 20, so when I became a teen, singers like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera were in vogue… They dominated the charts at that time… Now, Rihanna, Beyonce, Ke$ha are fashionable… Of course I think that many singers from the last decade are talentless, but still they dominate the charts, you can’t skip them…

    Over the last decade, I think Madonna has been famous since she borrowed that song from Abba and ’cause Justin timberlake made a duet with her… Otherwise, would she still have made ir? I remember reading that Hard Candy debuted at number 1 with 250,000 copies on the billboard 200… Britney’s Circus was number 1 with 505,000 copies… So…

    Anyway, why can’t one say what he thinks without being critized/ corrected? Is it a sin NOT to like madonna? We’re just speaking our minds!

  108. OH December 19, 2010

I’m not gonna beef with someone for merely stating an opinion, unless it’s something incredibly and mind-blowingly outlandish.

    You said she’s no longer popular on the American charts, I point out to you that all the albums she has released in the past decade were all very commercially successful. Last, I checked, she hasn’t collaborated with Justin Timberlake on all of them, nor has she sampled an ABBA song on all of them.

    Circus has also sold 4 millon copies worldwide… 1,6 millon were sold in the USA, the most important market in the world… It has the number 1 hit “Womanizer” and the top 3 “Circus”… Tell me the truth, I guess you like Britney,don’t you? Get ready, the next era will be the best!

  112. CRAMPED December 19, 2010

    Madonna is the queen of pop whereas Mariah is the queen of has-beens, but yep Mariah is more talented and probably deserves the title more.

    Madonna has inspired so many artists; Britney Spears being one of them, who is also had a major impact on pop music herself. so madonna career has been far more dynamic, controversial, influential and not mention she’s one of the best entertainers ever.

    Mariah Carey over-whelming sucess in the 1990s was bound to happen(it was typical), Madonna seems to have worked harder. Her constant image reinvention, sexual exploitation, edginess ( and God knows what else) propelled her to the top and kept her there.
    There will alot of madonna-wannabes popping up from decades to come, cant say the same about Mariah.

    @CRAMPED

    How does Mariah deserve the Queen of Pop title more when 90% of her s*** is R&B?!?!

    And um Madonna is just as talented, if not, MORE then Mariah!!! She doesnt have Mariahs voice but thats all Mariahs Good For! Madonna CAN sing, she can dance, she writes and produces she acts and she plays multiple instruments!

    Tell me what Mariah does but Sing in a Mic and have dancers lift her!??

  118. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 19, 2010

    @ Dion-ish:

    Mariah writes her s*** too, idiot!

  119. DION-ISH December 19, 2010

    FYI— I Rather not do this since i DO love Mariah’s music but SMH …yall WILL NOT come for the Queen!

  120. CRAMPED December 19, 2010

    @ Oh – Eminem shld be higher. Alicia is @ #100? wow

  121. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 19, 2010

    @ Oh:

    I like Madonna, but you actually prove Amazing Lee’s point. How in the F*** did Madonna outrank Queen, Pink Floyd, John Lennon, Chuck Berry, Paul McCartney, etc? Their influence is far more reaching than hers!

  122. Juan December 19, 2010

    @ True Blue:

    Hung Up: “Hung Up” contains a sample of the pop group ABBA’s hit single “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight),” for which Madonna personally sought permission to use from ABBA songwriters Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus.

    4 Minutes: The song features vocals by American musicians Justin Timberlake and Timbaland.

    Also, you must have watched the 4 mInutes videos lots of times. Have you ever SEEN Justin Timberlake or timbaland??

    Mind you, Madonna made a duet with Britney Spears (“Me Against The Music”). Thanks to God, the song was not successful on the US. I hate it.

  123. DION-ISH December 19, 2010

    @True Blue

    Being a Mariah fan, I KNOW that….Never said she didnt.

  124. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 19, 2010

    @ Juan:

    Evidently, you sorely lack reading comprehension. I give up on you.

    @ Dion-ish:

    “Multiple instruments”? Apart from a little guitar, what instrument does Madonna play?

  125. DION-ISH December 19, 2010

    My Point is Madonna is a better overall artist and Entertainer IMO

    *Shrugs*

  126. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 19, 2010

    @ Dion-ish:

    “Being a Mariah fan, I KNOW that….Never said she didnt.”
    _______________________________________________
    Then explain this: “Madonna is just as talented, if not, MORE then Mariah!!! She doesnt have Mariahs voice but thats all Mariahs Good For! Madonna CAN sing, she can dance, she writes and produces she acts and she plays multiple instruments!

    Tell me what Mariah does but Sing in a Mic and have dancers lift her!??”

    So you basically inferred that Mariah’s ONLY talent was singing. And nothing else.

  127. CRAMPED December 19, 2010

    @Dion-ish – If you read my comment properly u’ll see I think more highly of Madonna as an artist, but I will not over-look Mariah’s Talent. She can sang! Well, she could.

    But whatever, I dont really care about those 2 anyway.

  128. CRAMPED December 19, 2010

    Mariah is both pop and r’nb.

  129. Juan December 19, 2010

    @ True Blue: You really make me laugh. I did not notice the ALL OF THEM, but YOU didn’t understand what I was saying. Had I talked about all Madonna’s songs/albums? You missed the point.

    Anyway, I read these articles every day, and I always see your comments… Shouldn’t you get a life instead of writing a comment on each post? Also, I’m not from any English- speaking country, but still can read and write in English… I guess many of you only know English… Poor of you…

  131. DION-ISH December 19, 2010

    @TRUE Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ BLUE

    OK. IMO Madonna is a better overall Entertainer and Artist.

    Scratch the other s***, its whatever *Shrugs*

  132. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 19, 2010

    @ Juan:

    No, I did not at all miss your point. You pretty much implied that Madonna’s popularity was only because she sampled ABBA and worked with Justin & Timbaland. I pointed out to you if that were true, then her albums wouldn’t have sold nearly as well. There are many artists whose singles are popular but whose album sales falls short. In this day & age, if you only like a couple songs from an artist, you just buy them (or illegally download them) online, you don’t have to buy then entire album for just one or two songs.

    And apparently you seem to have enough time on your hands to read this blog everyday and follow my comments… so apparently, you lack a life as well.

  133. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 19, 2010

    Madonna’s popularity within the last decade, that is. And since this is an English blog, of course everyone is going to communicate in English. How do you know how many languages any of us speak? Don’t get presumptuous. People who act like they’re superior to everyone else tend to make themselves look like dumbasses in the end.

    @ Dion-ish:

    Did not know about the drums.

  134. DION-ISH December 19, 2010

    TRUE Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ BLUE

    I DOnt Even Understad WHY your coming at ME?? o_O

    Girllllll plz

  135. Juan December 19, 2010

    @ True Blue: Hadn’t you given up on me? Anyway, honey (or dear) my intention was not be be rude with you, but why does everybody get so furious with some comments? Some people replied to me saying of my lack of comprehension (??). I think that you’ve got the right to like whoever you like, but is it necessary to be so rude? It’s not your case, but some other people do

    I agree with you, today there are many singers who are “a singles artist.” Their singles sing millions, but their albums don’t. I like some Katy Perry’s, Rihanna’s and Ke$sha’s singles, but I wouldn’t buy her albums… There are few artists whose albums can sell a lot. I think they’re Beyonce, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Madonna

  136. Tru Voice December 19, 2010

    I never Remeber her DIssing Whitney or Vice Versa. Mariah and Madonna both seem to be threatend by othe female artists. Mariah always has issuse with other females in the music industry.

  137. hat wearer December 19, 2010

    mygod at so e of you, talent comes in all forms, yes mariah has a better voice, but thats where its stops in every other area madonna shits on her, songwriting,showmanship, staying relevant, touring, etc etc etc

    sorry madonna will always be a category of her own,

    while mariah is a hasbeen vocalist whos better known as a diva..

  138. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 19, 2010

    @ Juan:

    I don’t have a problem with your OPINION, as it is just that, just the facts regarding Madonna’s current popularity I was correcting you on. That is all. If someone wants to say Madonna is the most talentless artist out there, that’s their opinion, even if I strongly disagree with it.

    @ Dion-ish:

    That wasn’t… ah, shoot.

  139. Nichole December 19, 2010

    “And Janet Basically said she was Classy and Madonna was Trashy! When um She JUST AS sexual as Madonna”

    LMAO! I know damn well Janet wasn’t trying to come at another female artists for being trashy, especially since she fits that title herself. Classy??? Janet could never be classy in a million years. All people have to do is listen her lyrics, and watch her performances and they will see what kind of class she has.

    This is the same woman who has overly sexual lyrics, posed on RS with hands covering her b****** during the Janet album era, the woman that brings random men on stage to perform sexual acts on them and #1 of all….the woman who flashed her tit in front of millions on the Superbowl. How laughable.

    “There will alot of madonna-wannabes popping up from decades to come, cant say the same about Mariah.”

    This comment is as dumb as they come. There is a reason why Mariah made one of Time magazines most influential artists. Can’t say the same about Mariah? give me an effin break. Her influence just like Madonna’s, is highly influential, and Mariah will indeed keep the wannabes coming decades later.

  140. DION-ISH December 19, 2010

    @JUAN

    Girl you FOOLISH. Were’d you get that Fukery that Rihanna cant sell albums only singles?! And then you put gaga int he category of someone who can *Spits out snapple* ROFL….

    Didnt Rihanna top her in sales when Both there albums were released on the same day and Gaga was the hype chick of the moment with a mainstream commercial album?? PLZZZZ

  141. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 19, 2010

    @ Dion-ish:

    For someone who has 9 #1s and five albums, she should be selling a LOT more. Artists who have way less chart success than her and are of her generation have sold more albums than her.

    Gaga has less #1s, only one and a half albums, has only been out two years, yet has sold 13 million albums, compared to Rihanna who has sold 15-17 mil. So imagine where she’ll be a few years from now. I don’t think it’s out of the question to imagine that she’ll outdo Rihanna in overall album sales pretty soon. It’s not bias, it’s FACTS.

  142. LOL December 19, 2010

    Janet classy? LMAO! more like trashy!

  143. DION-ISH December 19, 2010

    @TRUE Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ BLUE

    o_O WTF Rihanna sells EXTREMELY well esp considering the times were in…and Currently doing great with LOUD. Overall Rihanna has about 60million in overall sales of albums, singles etc. Thats HUGE. more then MOST.

    And Whatever…I’ll let you think Gaga will sell more if it makes you feel better. *Shrugs* All i can say is …Will see in the coming years. although i wouldnt put it past her being the market she targets and how smart she is with her product (i mean image/music).

    MARIAH > MADONNA ANY DAY.

    Mariah is the biggest selling female artist of all time. Nice to know that Madonna’s fans like to f****** exaggerate… funny though! Madge is no where NEAR as talented as Mariah is. What talent does she have exactly? She can’t sing, she can’t dance, she is praying for producers to make her and she’s sagging like a sack of potatoes… what do you have against Mariah? “She’s fat” oh, you’re very mature to call a pregnant woman ‘fat’, that’s really bright of you. 5 gold stars for the f****** retards.

  148. Ebony Mag December 19, 2010

    Rihanna’s sales are good? LMAO give me a f****** break now, seriously

  149. sugarwalls December 19, 2010

    That was a cute response from Mariah!!!

  150. Sam December 19, 2010

    LAMBS stfu and sit down. Madonna is an artist, Mariah is a singer. VH!, Rolling Stone, Time Magazine, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and countless other magazines and organizations clearly agree that Madonna is a great artist. She wrote most of her music, she’s a musician, a dancer, and an entertainer besides a singer.

    Madonna was the highest female on the RS list, she was the highest female on the VH1 list, she was the only female singer other then Aretha Franklin on the Time Magazine list of the most influential women of the 20th century and she got into the Hall of Fame the first year she was eligable. Oh and she has the most Top 10 hits of any artist in music history.

    You Lambs all talk about number 1’s but how many Mariah songs have stood the test of time? Madonna’s countless hitscan be heard on A&C, Pop, Dance, 80’s, Lite Pop/Urban every day spanning her entire career from 1983-present. Mariah has Vision of Love, Always Be My Baby, Hero and We Belong Together still on rotation and that’s about it.

  151. theman December 19, 2010

    Janet is classy, she exudes that. She was able to be sexual but senual all at the sametime. Madonna has always seemed kinda rough and jagged. Mariah has everything. Mariah is a Vocalist/Songwriter/Artist/Composer/Icon and more. She’s also a trailblazer. So many have tried to mimic her. Keyword Tried: She’s in a league of her own.

    Nobodys checking for Mariah really ? According to the charts & Bilboard ur spreading lies. Continue to play dumb because thats all ur doing. MARIAHHHHHHHHHHH !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  152. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 19, 2010

    LOL @Oh who is obviously someone commenting under different names because they only directed their comment to me and no one else who has the same opinion as me. But whatever. @ True Blue beat me to the punch, that bogus list created by music critics whom are just as credible as you and me, only proves not only that critics are usually dumbasses but that list also proves my point that Madonna is OVERRATED! I can’t even begin to name all the crap that’s wrong with that list but she’s ahead of the genius that is QUEEN? No ma’am. I can’t and I won’t.

  153. Ohreallyyyyyyyy December 19, 2010

    It’s funny how some haters keep saying Mariah is only a singer JUST because she’s the best singer of all time. So because she has a big voice means she’s ONLY a singer and not an artist ? Well it means you don’t know anything about Mariah since she wrote 98% of her songs and produced most of them. She also has touched many genre, R&B, Pop, Soul, Gospel, Jazz, Dance, Hip-Hop … Don’t be mad because Mariah is an artist who can actually SING, Madonna is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa[…]y less talented, she’s just smarter than Mariah. But Mariah will ALWAYS be more talented, THE Voice.

  158. Medusa December 19, 2010

    And look who’s still the QUEEN OF POP! Madonna is…She was speaking the truth, Mariah is a mental case, who actually almost killed herself when she went through that embarrassing meltdown…Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson and Whitney only wish the could be half as successful as Madonna is…Her last album debuted at #1 in a record 37 countries and “4 Minutes” was one of her most successful singles of her career. Now Janet is pretty much down for the count since Rihanna and Beyonce showed up…Same for Whitney Houston. But Madonna gets so much respect because she is a true pop legend and the Most Successful Female Recording Artist of All Time….She’s sold 300 million albums, 175 million singles, is the #2 highest certified female in the US (behind Barbara Steisand surprisingly), and is by far the most successful singles artist ever….She’s had more hits than Michael Jackson and Elvis, and they were all original singles and overall, she’s second only to the Beatles on the Billboard Hot 100. Not to mention that Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Beyonce, Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Ke$ha and Pink all adore Madonna as one of their greatest influences…No one solo artist can sell out a 80,000 seat stadium anywhere on earth but Madonna…Jay Z, M.I.A., and SO many successful musicians always look to Madonna to see how they should work. Madonna laid the blueprint down and she’s still making great records and people still want to collaborate with her. So, really, look at Janet, Whitney and Mariah now…And now look at Madonna. Madonna is still the undisputed Queen of Pop. Lil’ Kim is just totally desperate and washed up…Literally right after Mariah Talked about Madonna here, Madonna scored her 11th Hot 100 #1 Single with “Take A Bow”, it spent 7 weeks at #1 and was the best selling single of 1995. So don’t cry for Argentina, because Madonna went on to play Evita and release the best album of her career 1998’s Ray of Light which has sold over 16 million copies and won loads of Grammys and MTV Awards for her groundbreaking videos “Frozen” and “Ray Of Light”. And FYI, Madonna doesn’t give a f***…She’s Madonna and she says brutally honest things all the time….Even to day, Madonna’s songs are classics, whereas you only here old Mariah, Janet or Whitney songs as background music at the dentist…LOL.

  159. Medusa December 19, 2010

    Oh yeah to the Mariah fans…I definitely give her props because she IS a great singer, producer and can right beautiful melodies….BUT, she’s way too safe and commercial in a bad way. Her songs just don’t appeal to me and when I hear a Mariah song, her vocals tend to annoy me. Madonna may not belt it out like Whitney or Mariah or Beyonce. She may not dance as technically perfect as Michael or Janet…But she is a great performance and visual artist who has enough talent to make it work…Her music videos are among the greatest in music video history and her concert tours, albums and looks are all very artistic and refined and very avant-garde without going TOO extreme like Lady Gaga. I can honestly say that I just can’t listen to a Janet or Whitney or Mariah record without skipping songs to get to the singles…Madonna has always been an album artist in the way Michael Jackson and Prince are. Her albums are consistent from beginning to end and I can complete a whole album in one session because I never get bored…There’s always something that surprises you each time around…These days everyone is looking to Madonna because does it like a true professional…Kanye loves Madonna, Gaga loves Madonna, Justin Timberlake loves Madonna…They respect her because she is a bad ass b****, but is always a step ahead…Notice how everything is electrohouse/Guetta/clubby? Well Madonna was doing French house back in the year 2000, was doing electro pop before Lady Gaga and Britney and pretty much introduced the genre “dance” to the mainstream back when her first album was an underground club hit in 1983 that literally every self-respecting dance DJ owned….Madonna was getting remixed by Paul Oakenfold, David Guetta and Tiesto, who all spun Madonna’s club remixes in their setlists before the made it big.

  160. cash December 19, 2010

    J.lo and Mariahs beef started when Tommy directed irv Gotta to create a song that sounded just like Mariahs Loverboy, Irv has said in interviews that yes, it was true, and thats what he did( taking the sample used for loverboy) Mariah didn’t use it in the final song but In the remix to lover boy da brat raps “B****** try to imitate me daily, but they cant do what I do” over the firecracker sample that J.lo stole from mariah.

  163. Andreas Greece UK ENGLAND December 19, 2010

    Listen everyone and Im guna show you how its done. This is about Madonna and Mariah. Madonna has done s** books, placed herself on a crucifix, walked the streets naked when she was young, kisses female singers on stage and what? That is called entertainment? Madonna has not sold more than mariah IN THE US. Fact.
    Also, madonna is more popular in Europe than Mariah, true. In Asia which has a much bigger population than Europe MARIAH REIGNS SUPREME.

    Madonna’s fans talk about glitter? Madonna has done more moves that have flopped, more than her saggy arms. In the UK where I am they play Mariah’s music in clubs, I dont hear Madonna’s music.

    To all those who say Mariah’s influence is nothing, BEYONCE said after hearing Mariah she knew she wanted to be a singer. Mariah has more talent in her one nail that all of Madonna’s body. Im going to leave it to the rest below because Mariah HAS DONE SO MUCH MORE IN THE 20 YEARS SHE HAS BEEN SINGING than Madonna who is taking decades and decades to do something similar. Mariah has more number ones in the 20 years than any SOLO artist in HISTORY. Saying that is nothing is plain stupid.
    Also, MADONNA said she liked Mariah’s E=MC2 album.

    What Celebrities Say About Mariah

    Below is a compilation of opinions and comments from famous celebrities about Mariah – the person, the music, the influence. If you would like to contribute to the list, please email us at info@mariahjournal.com.

    MARIAH, THE PERSON
    Derek Jeter: “I was intrigued with Mariah because we had a lot of similarities. Like me, she has a mixed heritage. She has White Irish mother and an African-American Venezuelan Father. Like me, she had a dream in life that she zealously pursued. She knew she wanted to be a singer, and made that her mission. Like me, she still works extremely hard at her profession. she’s a beautiful woman, on the inside and outside, and I had a deep respect for her and the way she handled herself. she started out with nothing but a dream that she would be a BIG STAR, and to this day, she still works hard at fulfilling that dream. She’s constantly writing, she’s constantly in the studio, she’s constantly trying to get better. She’s someone a lot of people can learn from. I know I did. Whether you like her music or you think it’s terrible, you could learn a lot of the way she pursued her goal.” (Excerpts from “The Life You Imagine: Life Lessons For Achieving Your Dreams” Book)

    Anastacia: “Just after her individual performance, I met Mariah. She actually came up to me, it was so weird. I had no idea that she even knew I existed. She came and told me that she loves my voice and she loved my “Not That Kind” album. I freaked out, haha! I couldn’t believe how nice she was, I never expected it from all the rumours I hear. But she’s extremely kind and down-to-earth and you know what? We chatted for a while and she told me to sing at the front with her at the end when we performed “What More Can I Give.” It was an honour.” (Australia’s Dope Music Magazine, 2002)

    Janet Jackson: “I have met [Carey] before and she’s really cool and so funny. Everyone has been given the wrong impression of her, and maybe it is her doing. But you have to remember that celebrities are always in the spotlight and are sometimes forced to conduct them selves in a different way than they normally do. That?s how it is in the business. I have met artists who are real divas, but Mariah Carey is not one of them. She is a very sweet person, and what nobody sees off camera is the real person she is on the inside.” (Music Beat)

    Damizza: “They say all these negative things about her like she dates rappers or about the way she dresses. If anybody were to meet her, they’d know she’s Mary Poppins. She doesn’t smoke, she hardly drinks, she doesn’t do drugs. She’s got a very sensitive voice so that if she walks into a room with smoke she can’t sing for three days, or she can’t talk. It’s funny to be her friend and read all these things about her. Tabloids are always saying she’s off on holiday but she’s the hardest working person I’ve ever met in my life. She works 23 hours a day, literally, she never sleeps and she takes care of everybody. When I hear someone say something about her I usually get offended because she gave me my shot, she gave Shade his shot, she gave us all our shots. She gave ODB his first light of day past Wu Tang Clan, and she invented the whole pop-rap collaboration. Nobody would have done a song with ODB at that level – this is a lady who’d sold a 100 million records at that point. She did not have to do that record, she wasn’t trying to get street credibility. When we did ‘Cry Baby’ for her album a long time ago, I called Snoop and said what we wanted to do and he said “‘Vision of Love’ is my favourite record of all time.” Everybody has a soft spot for Mariah. She’s the greatest in the world.”

    Diane Warren: “She works really hard. No matter what she’s done, there’s a hunger there. She doesn’t have to prove herself, but she feels like she does.”

    Jamie Theakson: “Mariah Carey is the perfect modern celebrity – larger than life, glamorous and totally over the top. I think some women disagree with her diva-like behaviour, but without her, the world of entertainment would be a much duller place.

    I first met her in 1997 when she was promoting her album Butterfly and we hit it off immediately. With everything that had been written about her I had no idea what to expect, but she was smart, warm and very funny. She’s a lot of fun to be around and unlike a lot of celebrities, can really laugh at herself. When she performed on Top Of The Pops we started a rumour she’d demanded puppies in her dressing room and it became instant Mariah folklore. But she loved it because it was all harmless fun, and that’s what she’s all about.” (Glamour UK)

    Shania Twain: Mariah is very grounded, a smart and level-headed person. I don’t understand why people criticize her intelligence when she can do something as miraculous as recover from a physical and exhaustion breakdown, a record label buy-out, a film flop, and a soundtrack whose sales has proven to have received little to no recognition and absolutely no promotion. She can’t be that simple if she can make a come back the way she did. She hasn’t been given enough credit in my opinion. She has to be some sort of a genius actually just to have focused on becoming a stronger person and not letting people like the media destroy her completely. There are some people out there that can’t handle the pressure of being a celebrity and the criticism and knowing that besides success there is always failure that you have to lean to recover from, and Mariah has proven to be the type of person who doesn’t let anyone or anything break her down. She knows how to keep her life on track and if that isn’t intelligence then I don’t know what is.”

    Whitney Houston: “We’ve never met or talked before. It was our first time working together. In the studio, we were laughing a lot and talking in between a song, we had a great time together. She’s a vivid minded girl, she’s a smart lady. I really like Mariah.”

    Jimmy “Jam” Harris: “From a personal stand point, Mariah’s kindness stood out the most. She’s a very caring person. We know from listening to her records how talented she is, but we didn’t really know how talented she really is until we work with her in the studio. After working with Mariah, I can say, she’s part of our family now. She’s workaholic and definitely the mother of her career.”

    Max Beesley, co-star in “Glitter”: “She was lovely. I actually kidnapped her one night! I wanted to take her out for a meal to thank her for taking such good care of us all for four months. So I took her out into New York, and told her that the night was on me, and we just going to relax. But she said, ‘Well I’ll get the wine then.’ So I just picked out any bottle, and she ordered three of it. I was downing them like a proper Manc – like it was a pint of beer – when the bill arrived and she started laughing. 900 dollars each! I was really embarrassed!” (BBC1 Interview)

    Missy Elliott: “MC is a funny girl and always makes me laugh no matter what. I love her!”

    Shade Shiest: “I don’t think it’s because she’s Mariah Carey, I don’t think she’s being singled out. It’s because anyone successful is always going to be the target of negativity. She’s a wonderful person, she’s like a big sister to both of us and I have never seen her act any different from her normal self which is just like any other person. She’s talented and she’s just a regular person.”

    Sharlee Jeter: “She’s a very nice person and I love her to death. But what happened to them [Mariah & Derek] is between them.”

    MARIAH’S MUSIC
    Kelly Clarkson: “Mariah is an excellent writer and singer. I believe she doesn’t receive the credit she deserves.” (The Straits Times)

    Mary J. Blige: I love Mariah Carey. Mariah Carey’s music saved little ghetto children’s lives. Songs like “Visions of Love” gave us hope and we would sing those songs and try to hit every note like Mariah — which we can’t. I don’t think she knows what a big part she plays in Mary J. Blige’s life. And then to meet her… she’s such a beautiful person that you can’t do anything but defend her when [the media] starts acting stupid on her. She doesn’t deserve that. (Barnes and Noble interview)

    Mary J. also said in her acceptance speech at the 2005 Vibe Awards where Mariah was in the audience, “Mariah I love you, and I’m so happy for you. (Talking about Mariah’s success with “The Emancipation of Mimi”)

    Busta Rhymes: “One of the best singers in the game, hands down…” (Blender)

    Aretha Franklin: “[Erykah] Badu is a very good vocalist. I like her wit. She’s kind of a cross between Diana Ross and Billie Holiday. Mariah Carey has done some things I like. Her vocals and production have a very tight quality.” (Time)

    Walter Afanasieff: “She actually knows every song ever written. She’s a walking encyclopedia of songs, from every Stevie Wonder song all the way to every Police record ever made. She carries around this ‘hard disk’ full of songs. And there’s nothing she can’t sing.” (Fred Bronson’s The Billboard Book of Number 1 Hits)

    Whitney Houston: When asked if she remembered first hearing Mariah’s music, Whitney replied by singing a line from “Vision of Love” and said, “Yep, I remember it. It was like, kinda, my tone, not quite me. Who is she?” (MTV interview with John Norris)

    David Foster: “Working with Mariah was an extraordinary opportunity for me. It goes without saying that she’s one of the world’s greatest singers, but it was her musicianship that stunned me. She thinks like a record producer and lays her vocals down like a virtouso guitarist. Singer, Songwriter, Producer Mariah is a triple treat. Working with her was a wonderful experience from beginning to end.”

    Ben Folds: “She’s got the most amazing voice. Although the production on her new album, “The Emancipation of Mimi,” may turn some off, I find the sheer talent involved reason enough to listen. I love classic soul ballads like “Mine Again” and “Fly Like a Bird.” I also like that she’s using her voice on this album more like a male singer might, like Prince. She could show off and belt, but she’s evolving and doesn’t seem to need to prove herself every bar, so you get the interpretation of an amazing singer.” (The New York Times)

    Patti LaBelle: Has often complimented Mariah (“She has a great voice. I don’t know, I love her talent!”) and has even called her, her god-daughter. She introduced her at the 1999 Billboard Awards and has duetted with Mariah. She also gave a standing ovation to her when Mariah performed a medley of “If Only You Knew/Somewhere Over The Rainbow” “Mariah has an amazing gift from God that has no color, no boundaries and no limitations. You hear the passion and honesty within her music.”

    Jessica Simpson: “Oh, my Gosh! Can you imagine they’re comparing me to her…I mean she’s the biggest selling artist of the decade, and I admire her too.”

    “I’m a huge fan of Mariah Carey. I admired her music for so long. It’s hard to follow on her footstep. She’s so successful. Mariah’s Mariah. To be compared to her is a huge compliment.”

    Jessica said that “My All” was her favorite song of 1998, and also said that she used to warm up by singing “Hero.”

    Nelly: “Mariah Carey, she’s possibly the best singer I’ve heard. And you watch someone such as Mariah, who went from the highest of the high to the lowest of the low, and come back like she never missed a beat, and stand up and smack everybody in the face like, ‘I’m still here; matter of fact I’m better” that gives you inspiration. That keeps me going.”

    P!nk: “I love her style, I love especially her covers and samples. I think ‘Glitter’ is great. It´s a shame that the press never understood how honest this movie is.”

    Toni Braxton: “I really admire Mariah Carey. I think she’s a underrated, because she’s a great producer, a wonderful writer, and no one gives her props for that. They always say ‘Oh look, did you see what she had on?’ And this and that. I’m like she’s 30 years old, she’s not 70 with breast hanging like chickens. She’s young, she’s beautiful, she has a great body. I just think she’s wonderful, and I think people beat her up a lil’ too much.

    Especially Mariah’s ‘One Sweet Day’ – the one she did with Boyz II Men. Oh my God, that really helped me through a rough time.”

    Probably Ella Fitzgerald, that’s past, but if you’re talking currently, I really like Mariah Carey. She’s wonderful, she’s a writer, and a producer, and I don’t think people give her credit as she should.

    “I like the things that Irv Gotti is doing with hip-hop tracks and R&B with Ashanti. To be honest, Mariah Carey really pioneered that. All people wanted to talk about was her shorty-short shorts, but forget the chances she took. “Mariah with ODB…what was she thinking?” When I heard it, I said, “I get it, Mariah. Hands up, girl!” (Network Magazine, Nov. 2002)

    Joe Elliott, lead singer – Def Leppard: “Mariah Carey has also covered it…and about bloody time! It took 21 years for someone to do a proper cover of one of our songs. Apparently she was listening to Vault when she decided to get back in the studio and add it to her own already finished album. Because ‘Bringin’ On The Heartbreak’ is the final track it suggests she listened right through to the end. That makes it hard not to say, ‘God bless ya, girl.'” (In the liner notes of “Rock of Ages” album)

    “I think she’s done a very good job [with “Bringin’ On The Heartbreak”]. It’s faithful to the arrangement, but not done like a rock song. Some astonishing vocal gymnastics toward the end that make Minnie Riperton sound like Tom Waits.” (Las Vegas Sun)

    Phil Collen, guitarist – Def Leppard: Praised Mariah’s cover of “Bringin’ On The Heartbreak” as a “genuine version of our song” and defended it from Def Leppard’s more critical fans: “The fans really get it wrong sometimes. She’s on our side and it’s an honour she’s done it. Really, that’s the only way we’re getting played. One of the best singers in the game, hands down…” (Rolling Stone)

    “She’s an icon. She’s one of the most influential singers of the last decade. I mean, someone like Christina Aguilera is trying to imitate what Mariah did.” (Calgary Herald)

    John Mayer: “There’s something about Mariah Carey. She’s super hot and people don’t realize how much influence she’s had.” (Blender)

    Rhett Lawrence, Producer: “I literally got goosebumps on my arms when I heard her sing. I couldn’t believe the power and maturity of her voice. It was obvious that she was great – she was amazing.”

    Shawn Stockman, Boyz II Men: “Of course. Mariah is talented, and you can’t denounce her talent. Yeah, she’s gone through a couple of personal things, but that didn’t change the quality and the texture of her voice. It was only a matter of time before she would rise again and be on top.”

    Thalia: “She has a voice that started a new era in music in the 90s. I used to listen to her songs. She’s accomplished so much in her career with her numerous number one songs.”

    Mark Feehilly, Westlife:”You know the way you see people’s names on the credits, and it’s like, I wonder if she actually really did that or are they just getting their name on there [because they’re] such a big artist?” vocalist Mark Feehilly asks. “I always wondered that about Mariah Carey, and I was so happy to find out that she actually sat there at the desk, pushing up and down the buttons. She actually does produce her own songs and she writes her own songs, too. So, as a big fan, it made me respect her even more.” (Rolling Stone, July 2000)

    MARIAH’S MUSICAL INFLUENCE

    Rihanna: “I looked up to Mariah ever since I was young and I still do, she is amazing and has a lot of talent as an artist

    Nicki Minaj : ” I see myself in Mariah”

    Nelly Furtado: “All that rap and” R&B I listened to as a kid made an impression on me; I used to write R&B songs in my bedroom that sounded like Mariah Carey songs.” (Billboard)

    “The first singer I really got into was Mariah Carey when I was about 12. She kind of taught me how to sing ’cause, you know, couldn’t really afford singing lessons. So, I would just listen to Mariah Carey’s CD over and over again, and learn all her lyrics.”

    Kelly Clarkson: Often cites Mariah as a source of inspiration and frequently covers her songs live such as “Love Takes Time” when she was in American Idol, she couldn’t sing Mariah songs but got around it by singing the same covers as her such as “Without You,” “Open Arms” and “Don’t Play That Song.”

    “I grew up listening to her and I love her and I love her new CD [“The Emancipation of Mimi”].”

    In reply to the question, “Everyone has posters on their bedroom walls growing up, who was on your bedroom wall?” Kelly said, “Oh, I had Mariah Carey, Reba McEntire, Aerosmith, Guns N’ Roses, had a bunch. I had a lot of Mariah Carey though.” (Total Request Live interview)

    At Zootopia 2003 Concert where they were both performing, Randy Jackson shoved her into a room with Mariah against her will (Kelly was too nervous). And Kelly told Mariah (accidentally) “Oh my God, I think I’m going to throw up!” She said Mariah laughed at her and was nice about it. Evidently, Kelly really vividly remembers that meeting, because she tells that story every time Mariah is brought up. (Interview with Ryan Seacrest, KISS 102.7)

    Beyonce Knowles: “‘Vision of Love,’ when I first heard that song, I knew it, my mind was made up – I had to be a singer.”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Kelly Rowland: “Mariah Carey is another hero of mine. I remember meeting her and how nice she was, and how I recently saw her, and she was telling me about stole and how she loved the video. And I literally, my mouth was open! I’m 22 years old and I mean at some point you just can’t help but get a little star struck, and Mariah is just so incredible! I remember listening to “Dreamlover” when it first came out, and me trying to cut my shorts like hers, and have little plat shirts and show some belly like her! And oh my gosh, I love her! Love her!! She is a very incredible human being!! Listening to her voice just made me want to try even more with my vocals, cos she can do anything with her voice. Her voice is just like the ultimate instrument! She can hit high notes and her bottom voice is just so big and it’s beautiful! There’s no singer on this earth that can do what Mariah does!!!”

    Nivea: “Mariah Carey. She has been my main inspiration.” (Teen Scene Magazine)

    “I was watching ‘The Arsenio Hall Show,’ and Mariah was performing ‘Vision of Love,'” the singer recalls. “The way she projected her voice, she just had so much power. I knew then that I wanted to make people feel the way she made me feel. I bought all her albums and learned all the songs. That’s all I would do all day long sing Mariah Carey songs…” (Yahoo! Music Interview)

    Melody Thorton, Pussycat Dolls: “My first album was Mariah Carey’s “MTV Unplugged” and I still listen to it on a regular, to this day. (And you played it the other day. Over and over.) All the time. I met Mariah and she was great and I really, really, like it’s amazing when you meet someone with that much like (charisma), yeah. She’s done this before. She’s like blah-blah-blah talking to me and then I was like just couldn’t talk and when she left us I was like crying for an hour. It was crazy. It was great! She said, ‘Don’t mess up my body make-up.’ That’s what she said!” (AOL Music Sessions)

    “Some girls have said, ‘It’s my dream to be in a pop group,’ and I’m like, ‘OK, because I want to be Mariah Carey.'” (Blender)

    Lucie Silvas: “I was obsessed. I remember the moment I first heard Vision of Love, then I saw this white girl with a black voice on television, and everything about her bowled me over. You could relate to her and yet she was a magical icon, and throughout my school days all I dreamed of was being like Mariah Carey. She sang with a gospel choir around her, which was always my dream. I just wanted to be her.” (Guardian Unlimited)

    Britney Spears: “Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston were my biggest influences. Madonna and Janet were too. I love their style (Mariah & Whitney) and the way their voices electrify you.”

    “When I was little Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, and I love listening to Michael Jackson…Yeah, I’ve always loved Mariah Carey, I guess because she writes her music, most of her music, and because she comes up with the BEST melodies. Her range is just from here to there, and she’s probably my role model.”

    Anastacia: “From her very first album till now her voice has been absolutely glorious to listen to. I am affected by every note she hits, which is practically every note on the keyboard.”

    “You know later in life I was inspired to sing and that would’ve been Aretha, Chaka Khan, Mariah – the typical divas were the inspiration. I’ve always enjoyed all those singers.”

    Singer Anastacia told Dope Music Magazine in Sydney that one of the most intimidating performances of her career was at the United We Stand concert in 2002, with Michael Jackson and Mariah: “Before it, I was so nervous. I was sweating like a pig, seriously. The thought of singing with Michael Jackson and Mariah Carey at the same time was indescribable. I never imagined singing with my life time idols”.

    Christina Aguilera: In the early stages of her career, Aguilera often cited Mariah as a source of inspiration. “I discovered Mariah in my room one day listening to the radio, and as soon as ‘Vision of Love’ came on, I ran downstairs going, ‘Mommy, Mommy’ – I just found the greatest person in the world! I just heard the greatest new voice!

    Jessica Simpson: Jessica has cited Mariah as a source of inspiration, and after seeing her perform “We Belong Together” at the 2005 MTV Movie Awards, she can be seen mouthing “I love her!”

    Mya: “Wow! That rings a bell – ‘Mya and Mariah’ that would be nice, she’s one of my influences as well. Anything is possible. She has a beautiful voice.”

    Bethany Joy Galeotti (“One Tree Hill”): “I wrote my first song when I was maybe like four years old. I was always wandering around the house making things up. Back then, I learned a lot about singing from listening to Mariah Carey. I would sing to her [albums] and try and get all her riffs and stuff. I would be in my room for hours until I could get it right, it helps being an only child because I didn’t have anything else to do!” (IMDb)

    MISCELLANEOUS
    Celine Dion: Despite rumors of rivalry between the two around the time of Divas Live in 1998, Celine has reportedly commented on Mariah when asked if she would ever duet with her and said something along the lines of “If Mariah was to ask me to duet with her, I will travel immediately 20000 km in order to sing with her for sure!”

    Christina Aguilera: “I’m presenting actually, right after she performs. So we were getting, we just did the rehearsal for it, and she just walked by me. I’m like OMG! it’s her! I don’t think I get starstruck with anyone the way I do with Mariah. I’m still waiting to meet her. I hope…When you interview her, tell her Christina Aguilera thinks she’s amazing. She looks amazing…” (Interview with Chris Connelly of MTV News)

    Gloria Estefan: Gloria once commented on Mariah saying that it was okay she was cut out of the press photo for Divas Live, because they “had to make room for Mariah’s hair.”

    Keisha Cole: “At the end of the day, I feel blessed to be named with the names in my category, like Mariah.”

    Missy Elliot: “Mariah, she listens to RAP. She’s just straight up cool.”

    “I remember, when my manager asked me to work with Mariah. I thought I would faint immediately. I mean, the legendary Mariah Carey wanted me to rap on her CD? I was shocked, excited, honored and happy.”

    I REST MY CASE. ANYONE DENYING THAT MARIAH’S INFLUENCE IS NOTHING IS LIVING IN A F****** DREAM, AND THAT’S WHAT IT ALWAYS WILL BE, YOUR DREAMS.

    KEEP GOING MARIAH I LOVE YA .

  164. vegasgirl December 19, 2010

    That was funny. I can’t believe people are arguing about album sales and stuff between the two women based off this extremely old clip. This clip is from a very specific time in Madonna and Mariah’s careers and apparently Madonna gave an unsolicited comment/opinion about Mariah ( I don’t know exactly why Madonna said what she did) who was relatively new at the time.

    For every artist there is a downswing in POPULARITY especially when you are a vet. No artist can be as hot as they were the first time they were introduced. The buzz always dies but if they are lucky the sales won’t follow.

  165. F****** December 19, 2010

    None of those h*** knew not to come for Whitney. Whitney ain’t the playing type, she will tell you off in a minute. I think out of the four, Mariah is the least intellectual. Madonna, Whitney and Janet all speak well and are articulate. Mariah speaks as if she did not finish 8th grade.

    Thank god Mariah use to have talent, cause idk what would have become of her had she not became a singer.

  166. F****** December 19, 2010

    But let the truth be known, Madonna is the bigger Global superstar than all of them, followed by Whitney, then Celine, then Mariah, then Janet. Whitney would have the biggest album sales of all of them, had she released about two more albums in the 90s.

    According to the RIAA, Whitney has sold 190mill albums, singles etc. If she sold that much with only 7 studio albums under her belt, imagine what she would have sold had she released more material. That is actually more impressive then all of their numbers, being she has far less albums vs Madge, Celine, and Mariah.

    Madonna, Celine and Whitney has toured far more, and far more successfully then Mariah. Mariah cannot pack stadiums and arenas. Even with Whitney’s recent tour that received bad reviews, she still packed stadiums and arenas and walked away with a pretty good amount of money.

    Mariah has the #1s, but most of them are a result of payola and repressed downloads etc. Mariah may be the biggest secret in the industry that has benefited from overshipped album sales, and #1s that weren;t deserving of being #1.

    Nobody can touch Madonna globally other than the late great MJ

    So………….’

    Madonna>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Mariah

  167. John December 19, 2010

    @S***

    Stay pressed. Beyoncé will never be a legend.
    Madonna IS. Mariah IS. Thiefyonce could never.
    You Mad?
    ————————————————————————–
    haha that is one truth. Beyonce stans are having a hard week!
    Anyway, more truths: Madonna only slays Mariah in reinvention and as a performer. Vocally and musically Mariah slays so hard Madonna. And from what I heard music is about creating songs and vocals, so u do the match and now u know who is more talented.
    And talking about success, Madonna wins worldwide and Mariah in the USA, those are facts. Beyonce wins on anything though, and it will never change

    YOU ARE ALL CULTURALLY FRIGGIN IGNORANT AND DO YOU KNOW WHY?

    CHINA HAS A POPULATION OF OVER A BILLION, SO HAS INDIA, MARIAH CAREY IS MASSIVE OVER THERE, MADONNA IS NOT EVEN PROMOTED THERE, MARIAH IS THE BEST SELLING ARTIST IN JAPAN AND AMERICA, TWO OF THE WORLS BIGGEST MUSIC MARKETS….

    ALWAYS IN JAPAN, KOREA, CHINA, THE FEMALE STARS ALWAYS SING WHITNEY AND MARIAH SONGS… THIS IS WHAT IT CALLS TO HAVE INFLUENCE

    WHO IN X FACTOR OR POP IDOL SINGS MADONNA SONGS? NO ONE, SIMON COWELL SAID MARIAH IS THE BIGGEST SUPERSTAR IN THE WORLD

    LEONA LEWIS SAID MARIAH IS THE BIGGEST INFLUENCE IN HER MUSIC, ANYTIME YOU NEED A FRIEND IS HER FAVOURITE SONG

    WHO IS MADONNA?

    THE PERVERTS AND PLASTIC PEOPLE BUY HER MUSIC…

    MADONNA’S OBSESSED FANS CANT SEE THAT… MADONNA IS A F****** PLASTIC CONTROVERSY MAKING B**** AND SHE DOESNT HAVENT TALENT, SHE IS LUCKY SHE HAS STUDIOS AND MACHINES AND PRODUCERS TO MAKE HER SOUND GOOD.

    WHEN MARIAH WAS SIGNED UP SHE DEMANDED THAT SHE WOULD ALWAYS BE ABLE TO WRITE HER MUSIC, SHE HAS OVER 200 MILLION POUNDS IN THE BANK AND YOU ALL SAY SHE IS NOT A BUSINESSWOMAN?

    SHE DOESNT NEED TO GO TO AFRICA AND STEAL BABIES… HAHA

    MARIAH WINS.. ALWAYS… MADONNA WILL DIE SOON AND HER BODY LOOKS DEAD ALREADY.

  170. Spunkypoop December 19, 2010

    Damn!!! How long did it take for you to type all that. actually I believe Janet Jackson is the queen in japan. She had more hits and #1’s than Mariah Carey. I’m not 100% but I’m almost positive a 80%. can someone varify that. And okay you Mariah fans get over it she will never be as huge as Madge so get over it!!!! she may have more #1s but that’s about it. Madonna is going in on 30 yrs in the game.

  171. Spunkypoop December 19, 2010

    Madonna is an international MegaStar!!!!

  172. Andreas Greece UK December 19, 2010

    spunkypoop what a s*** title … anyways mariah is the best in japan the facts are given above and she sold the fastest with her NuMBER 1’s album.

    X FACTOR IS B*******.PEOPLE ON X FACTOR DO NOT SING MADONNAS SONG COS MADONNA DO NOT ALLOW.

  174. Andreas Greece UK December 19, 2010

    MADONNA is incomparable to the greatest singer of all time MARIAH CAREY why? so read the following:

    (winner: MARIAH CAREY)

    (#2.)

    MARIAH CAREY: has also over 200 million record worldwide in only 19 years,madonna has 11 years more than MARIAH CAREY but this 11 years is more enough to break MADONNA record.
    (winner: MARIAH CAREY)

    (#3.)
    MADONNA: has only 12 no. 1 hit in the billboard hot 100 but in a long time 30 years

    MARIAH CAREY: has also guinness world record for holding the highest note by a human in 2003
    (we have a tie)

    (#5.)
    MADONNA: madonna cannot sing consistently or with ease…go on youtube and you can see
    MARIAH CAREY: has angelic voice and she can hit bass range with low key E2,F2 and hit coluratura sfogato range with high key G#7,C#8,E8. she has incredible 5.1 to 6 octoves vocal range and prove by guinness and MARIAH CAREY vocal coach.
    (winner: MARIAH CAREY)

    (#6.)
    MADONNA: has a lot of fans in europe

    (winner: MARIAH CAREY)

    (#7.)
    MADONNA: songs and even her 12 no. 1 hit was not remembered and played today.

    (winner: MARIAH CAREY) Simon cowell made sure mariah sang on x factor where the single went to number one again and became the biggest selling charity single in the UK of all time…

    (#8.)
    MADONNA: almost of her song are about material and s**
    MARIAH CAREY: almost of her song are inspirable,and her gospel song spread the greatness of our GOD,she writes all her songs deep from his heart and inspire other singer and being their no. 1 influence in music specially in asia.
    (winner: MARIAH CAREY)

    MARIAH CAREY: is the queen of RnB and the most beautifull voice in the history prove by the MTV 22 greatest voice countdown

    Rihanna, beyonce, britney spears, aguilira, alicia keys, anastasia and many more cite Mariah as either THE or a MAJOR influence in their music

    its clear that MARIAH CAREY has achieved much more in less time than Madonna… what will she do next? do another crucifix joke? take off some more clothes?

    ewwww steal more babies from africa? what a joke…. SHE MAY HAVE REINVENTED HERSELF BY USING A DIFFERENT HAIR COLOUR BUT SHE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A W****….

  175. XXOO December 19, 2010

    Leona Lewis loved mariah but

    Leona – who has been dating electrician Lou Al-Chamaa for five years – also hinted she may be tempted to follow in Madonna’s footsteps and release an explicit tome, after taking inspiration from the 51-year-old singer’s famous S** book.
    She said: “I have always loved Madonna. I was too young for her S** book period, but then when I saw it I thought, ‘Wow!’ Good for her, if that’s how she wanted to express herself. Would I express myself like that? Well, you never know…”
    While she admires Madonna, Leona says there’s one celebrity who has been very rude to her in the past but she refused to name them.

    who has been very rude to Leona Lewis ?HAHAAA

  176. Andreas Greece UK December 19, 2010

    xx00

    one or two days ago leona just sang a mariah carey song….. obviously its not mariah otherwise she would be a shizophrenic loving and hating the same person…

    DUUUUH get real…

  177. Andreas Greece UK December 19, 2010

    Leona lewis came from x factor you f****** r*****…. no one sings madonna songs… its a joke…..

    rihanna sang hero at school and won a talent contest… aguilira tried to sing vision of love….

    Mary J. Blige:

    I love Mariah Carey. Mariah Carey’s music saved little ghetto children’s lives. Songs like “Vision of Love” gave us hope and we would sing those songs and try to hit every note like Mariah — which we can’t. I don’t think she knows what a big part she plays in Mary J. Blige’s life. And then to meet her….she’s such a beautiful person that you can’t do anything but defend her when [the media] starts acting stupid on her. She doesn’t deserve that.

    She has the voice of an angel.

    Michael Jackson. Bono also said so in the 2006 Grammy Awards

    After I first heard “Vision [of Love]” (Carey’s debut single) I first started doing runs [singing harmonic variations on scales]
    Beyoncé Knowles, Singer Destiny’s Child

    When I discovered Mariah Carey and “Vision of Love,” that was a breath of fresh air. And I adored her from that moment on and idolized her. It’s really amazing that in articles I’ve been compared to her.
    I discovered Mariah in my room one day listening to the radio, and as soon as ‘Vision of Love’ came on, I ran downstairs going, ‘Mommy, mommy – I just found the greatest person in the world! I just heard the greatest new voice!’.
    Mariah Carey… she is a huge influence on me. I mean, she’s amazing.
    Christina Aguilera

    I love her, she’s such a nice person! I had an opportunity to meet her for the first time at the Z100 concert. Randy [Jackson] was like ‘Mariah’s here, would you like to meet her?’ I said no, I don’t wanna meet her! I’m gonna be an idiot in front of her. In my mind, I was saying, ‘I’m gonna throw up, I’m gonna throw up!’ but the words came out of my mouth. Mariah was laughing at me. It so was funny!
    Kelly Clarkson, on meeting Carey

    Sorry, but when you sing songs that the great Mariah Carey sings, you run the hugest risk of being compared to icons. And right now, there’s no one hotter than Mariah Carey and we’re constantly reminded of how brilliant her voice is. It’s a big, big, huge risk to take on a song like that.
    Paula Abdul, to American Idol 5 finalist Heather C**

    My theory is that Mariah Carey can sing anything. You hear that expression, ‘She can sing the phone book’. If you can really sing, you should be able to sing anything. That’s [what] the whole competition [is about].
    American Idol judge Randy Jackson

    Mariah Carey has also covered it… and about bloody time! It took 21 years for someone to do a proper cover of one of our songs.
    The members of Def Leppard about Carey’s cover of their song “Bringin on the Heartbreak”.

    I remember the moment I first heard Vision of Love. Then I saw this white girl with a black voice on television, and everything about her bowled me over. You could relate to her and yet she was a magical icon, and throughout my school days all I dreamed of was being like Mariah Carey. She sang with a gospel choir around her, which was always my dream. I just wanted to be her.
    Lucie Silvas, British Singer

    Her friendship is very important to me. And it has provided me with some of my fondest memories and experiences of being in the music industry. It’s just great that she is such a down to earth person who just happens to be a little more famous than most of my other friends.
    Erik Bradley, Music Director/Assistant of B-96 Radio in Chicago.

    My first impression of Mariah was that she was an incredible singer, very funny (she’s always cracking jokes) and just a very nice person to be around…. after 5 years I still feel the same way. I really enjoy being a part of her team. Normally when I work with a new artist I’m not necessarily a “fan”, but there’s no question Mariah is a truly great singer, so in this case, yes I was (and am) a fan.

    “I want to be the black Madonna. When I did that metallic stuff for my ‘Umbrella’ video, I didn’t do it to show my body. I didn’t do it for people to like me. I did it because it was a cool visual, unexpected, and it looked hot. I just find myself leaning toward stuff that only Madonna can pull off.”

    When Rihanna debuted, the R&B chanteuse category was filled to the brim with the likes of Amerie, Ciara, Christina Milian and Teairra Mari–so many girls, so little individuality. Less than a year later, Rihanna had pulled ahead with the success of “SOS” but also, she says, because of her desire to be different from the rest.

  188. XXOO December 19, 2010

    MIA ON MADONNA

    Iovine may have instinctively realized that in fusing style, music and controversy, Maya evoked Madonna. While Madonna has always been more interested in writing melodious, catchy pop songs and less interested in niche hipster credibility than Maya, they share a gift for grand self-invention. Like Madonna, Maya is not a trained musician but instead a brilliant editor, able to pick and choose and bend the talents of others to fit her goals. They share an enormous appetite and a discerning eye for the intertwined worlds of fashion, art and music. “Madonna is the one,” Maya said. “Madonna did amazing songs. She had an amazing sense of style, without a stylist. And she was flawed, and sometimes she admitted it. I’ll fight the fight for Madonna. I think she should send me some chocolates or something to thank me.”

  189. I Look to Crack December 19, 2010

    @TRUE BLUE
    I didn’t say Mariah is better. I said that Madonna is most famous for her image and Mariah is most famous for her voice – just very different.

  190. Andreas Greece UK December 19, 2010

    i LOOK TO CRACK.. i see what your saying but are wrinkles a nice image to see or her on a crucifix?

    this is not entertainment … its offensive with the aim of creating trouble to make someone appear in your face…. maybe one its ok twice maybe but 1000 times? revolting 😛

  191. Viki December 19, 2010

    Mariah is the best singer in the world behind Whitney and Celine. Nobody can interprete a song like Whitney.

    I f****** love you @ Andreas Greece UK !!!

    I’m just so happy when fellow LAMBS support QUEEN MARIAH!!!

  193. Andreas Greece UK December 19, 2010

    to mariah is da voice…

    Thank you LAMB, the thing is if mariah has sold over 200 million in less time than madonna it means her music is more likeable and better…

    one fact i posted above was that ONE SWEET DAY was number 1 for the most weeks in the 90’s and then from 2000 to 2010 mariah held the title again with we belong together…

    so many people have used these songs and bye bye and hero to get through life… WHAT THE FLYING F*** HAS MADONNA DONE? USED P*** AND S**? GOD HELP ME THESE PEOPLE R SO F***** UP…

    @Andreas Greece UK Mariah wom ever go past madonna in sales.. 100 million in 11 years? i dont think so.. the biggest selling artist of the decade is eminem and his only sold 80 million.. Mariah doesnt sell anywhere close to what he does now a days.. get over it.

  197. 4ever December 19, 2010

    Also madonna’s first hit was in november of 1983 with “holiday” which makes it 27 years. so 300 milliion in 27 years.

  198. 4ever December 19, 2010

    Madonna has sold more than 300 million records worldwide and is recognized as the world’s top-selling female recording artist of all time by the Guinness World Records. According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), she is the best-selling female rock artist of the 20th century and the second top-selling female artist in the United States, behind Barbra Streisand, with 64 million certified albums.

  199. Viki December 19, 2010

    I have seen Whitney and Mariah in concert, both in their primes, Mariah can not touch Whitney live. Im trying to tell you

  200. Viki December 19, 2010

    @4ever

    What Mariah’s fans fail to realize, is a lot of her numbers are a result of overshipment, and not physical album sales. Mariah is nowhere near the global star of Madonna. I don’t think Mariah even have a diamond album in her log. So how has she sold over 200mill?

  201. 4ever December 19, 2010

    @Viki. I’ve no idea, it must be due to the overshippment of her albums… To many albums have beeen shipped to stores and yet no ones bought them. She’ll never sell another 100 million to pass mondonna in any case.

  202. QUEEN OF MUSIC = MARIAH December 19, 2010

    Everyone do not bother to even read the comments of “VIKI”. I’ve noticed how she continously hate on Mariah on this site!

    Mariah has two diamond albums idiot, and she’s also a much bigger star than Madonna in the states and in Asia and she’s very successful in Europe. Lots of artists were overshipping because their albums were in high demand. Duh u should know that. But Mariah was actually selling stop hating. Thats your take if you like Whitney. Yours….. Mariah is a tremendous vocalist… What you fail to realize is that Madonna repackaged the same album about 3 to 6 times in order to sale more albums. Mariah is GREAT !

  205. 4ever December 19, 2010

    In a career spanning over 20 years, Carey has sold over 200 million albums, singles, and videos worldwide, making her one of the biggest-selling artists in music history.

    Possessing a five-octave vocal range, Carey was ranked first in MTV and Blender magazine’s 2003 countdown of the 22 Greatest Voices in Music, and was placed second in Cove magazine’s list of “The 100 Outstanding Pop Vocalists”.

    Aside from her voice, she has become known for her songwriting. Yahoo Music editor, Jason Ankeny wrote, “She earned frequent comparison to rivals Whitney Houston and Celine Dion, but did them both one better by composing all of her own material.”

    According to Billboard magazine, she was the most successful artist of the 1990s in the United States.

    At the 2000 World Music Awards, Carey was given a Legend Award for being the “best-selling female pop artist of the millennium,” as well as the “Best-selling artist of the 90s” in the United States, after releasing a series of albums of multi-platinum status in Asia and Europe, such as Music Box and Number 1’s.

    ] Carey is ranked as the best-selling female artist of the Nielsen SoundScan era, with over 52 million copies sold

    VICKI YOU CHAT S***, OBVIOUSLY YOU DO NOT KNOW ABOUT MUSIC..

    YOU JUDGE AN ARTIST ONLY BY THEIR PRIME? SO WITH YOUR LOGIC WHITNEY IS DEAD A S A SINGER? HAHA

    I SAW IN THIS YEAR IN ENGLAND, SHE CANT FINISH A SONG, SHE WAS SWEATING LIKE A HO AND ALL SHE DID WAS SCREACH… THROUGH SHE WAS HAVING A SHIZOPHRENIC ATTACK…

    She has sold more then mariah in the states.. you just cant take it

    Madonna has sold more than 300 million records worldwide and is recognized as the world’s top-selling female recording artist of all time by the Guinness World Records. According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), she is the best-selling female rock artist of the 20th century and the second top-selling female artist in the United States, behind Barbra Streisand, with 64 million certified albums. In 2008, Billboard magazine ranked Madonna at number two, behind only The Beatles, on the Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists, making her the most successful solo artist in the history of the Billboard chart

    read that… that is the truth.. not the bull you make up

  211. Viki December 19, 2010

    Thank you @4Ever for schooling these lamb–f*cks on the Queen Madonna. Truth is, Celine has sold more than Mariah as well.

    @Andre, while Whitney was on stage sweating and coughing, she was still singing live and packing stadiums, while Mariah was performing in theaters not even selling out and lipsinging.

    If you think Mariah has sold more than Madonna, and Barbara Streisand (two real divas), then you are more delusional then I initially thought,

    Madonna wasn’t lying when she called Mariah dumb, her lambs are dumb to. Dumb fans for a dumb hog-neck fraud

  212. Andreas Greece UK December 19, 2010

    Vicki… are you soooooo serious?

    HER BROTHER SANG A SONG AT THE CONCERT, THE BACKING SINGERS SANG ‘QUEEN OF THE NIGHT’ SHE DIDNT SING MILLION DOLLAR BILL SHE DANCED TO IT.. HER BACKGROUND SINGERS SANG IT… THEN SHE RAMBLED ABOUT GOD WHICH IM SURE JESUS WOULD PITY HER… AND THEN TO TOP IT OFF SHE CRACKED MAJORLY WHEN SHE SANG I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU, TAKING A COUPLE OF MINS BREAK IN THE MIDDLE

    THATS NOT BEING A TRUE ARTIST.. THATS MAKING MONEY AND SAYING F*** YOU TO THE FANS…

    MADONNA= FAKE

    MARIAH = CAN SING

    SIMPLE CONCLUSION= MARIAH IS A SINGER

    MADONNA IS A RECYCLED CONDOM

  213. John December 19, 2010

    I love how everytime I post something on this site, anyfuckingbody responds to the truths I say. Where are Bey stans since a while ago? And Mariah is clever as hell so please don´t call her dumb. Leave it to Beyonce. Madonna is not stupid either.
    Again the truths:
    – Madonna is better at reinvention and performing. Mariah sangs and creates real music. Mariah has more talent for music by far.
    – Mariah is bigger in the uSA and Madonna worldwide except for Japan

    Overall Mariah wins cos MUsic is what counts

  214. Andreas Greece UK December 19, 2010

    THIS IS THE REAL POINT? WHO STARTED THE NAME CALLING? MADONNA.

    INSTEAD OF RESPECTING ANOTHER WOMAN IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY SHE JUST SAID A REALLY EVIL THING.

    MADONNA, AFTER GETTING F***** BY HUNDREDS OF MEN AND WOMEN, REALISED THAT MARIAH IS AMAZING AND SAID SHE LIKED MARIAH CAREY’S ALBUM E=MC2 AT A PRESS CONFERENCE.

    HAHAHAHAHA

  215. Andreas Greece UK December 19, 2010

    MARIAH CAREY IS MORE FAMOUS IN ASIA AND THE MIDDLE EAST TRUUUUST ME ITS A FACT

    MADONNA HAS SOLD MORE IN EUROPE… S** SELLS THERE MORE

  216. Dicey December 19, 2010

    If talent and musicality appeals more to you, you’d like Mariah better. Madonna is more of an image rather than actual music talent like Britney. Now that she’s become wrinkly noone wants to fall for her shock tactics or see grandma shoving her crotch in our faces anymore!She just has to rely on her past image to sell now. she’s just the type that would claw her way to the top just to be on top. Mariah got there because music is her life.

  217. Andreas Greece UK December 19, 2010

    Well said dicey

    WHENEVER YOU CALL
    Lyrics: Mariah Carey
    Music: Mariah Carey and Walter Afanasieff
    Produced and Arranged: Mariah Carey and Walter Afanasieff

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dgBxbArdt4

    Love wandered inside
    Stronger than you
    Stronger than I

    And now that it has begun
    We cannot turn back
    We can only turn into one

    I won’t ever be too far away to feel you
    And I won’t hesitate at all
    Whenever you call
    And I’ll always remember
    The part of you so tender
    I’ll be the one to catch you fall
    Whenever you call

    And I’m truly inspired
    Finding my soul
    There in your eyes
    And you
    Have opened my heart
    And lifted me inside
    By showing me yourself
    Undisguised

    I won’t ever be too far away to feel you
    And I won’t hesitate at all
    Whenever you call
    And I’ll always remember
    The part of you so tender
    I’ll be the one to catch you fall
    Whenever you call

    And I will breathe for you each day
    Comfort you through all the pain
    Gently kiss your fears away

    You can turn to me and cry
    Always understand that I
    Give you all I am inside

    I won’t ever be too far away to feel you
    And I won’t hesitate at all
    Whenever you call

    I won’t ever be too far away to feel you
    And I won’t hesitate at all
    Whenever you call
    And I’ll always remember
    The part of you so tender
    I’ll be the one to catch you fall
    Whenever you call
    Whenever you call

    Mariah is pure talent…

  219. Hmmm December 20, 2010

    Mariah Carey stans are so delusional it’s horrible. Madonna has been outsold mariah get those facts straight the only thing she has over madge is #1’s and who cares about that. Mariah Carey has been giving us the same tired ass love songs for the last 12-13 years and the sad thing about is her fans are so dumb they don’t care or just don’t notice .go back to honey and listen up until now same format different producer. I’m sorry that’s not an artist more like con artist. Her voice is in my top 10 but whitney’s in prime set the standards I respect mariah carey but her stans make it hard.

  220. 4ever December 20, 2010

    Theres no point carrying on this.. all im gonna say is madonna’s album before last sold 12 million world wide in 2005, so for a 50 year old.. that is great as she doest rely on her looks to sell music.
    Madonna is still out selling many artists today, even after shes been having hits for 27 years.

  221. Andreas Greece UK December 20, 2010

    madonna is a con artist…. she needs controversy to get attention….

    its all an illusion and thats that..

  222. Andreas Greece UK December 20, 2010

    Celine Dion: When asked if she would ever duet with her and said something along the lines of “If Mariah was to ask me to duet with her, I will travel immediately 20000 km in order to sing with her for sure!”

    Madonna cannot even sing live…I went to her concert in Paris and it was horrendous..

  223. Andreas Greece UK December 20, 2010

    Toni Braxton: “I really admire Mariah Carey. I think she’s a underrated, because she’s a great producer, a wonderful writer, and no one gives her props for that. They always say ‘Oh look, did you see what she had on?’ And this and that. I’m like she’s 30 years old, she’s not 70 with breast hanging like chickens. She’s young, she’s beautiful, she has a great body. I just think she’s wonderful, and I think people beat her up a lil’ too much.

    Especially Mariah’s ‘One Sweet Day’ – the one she did with Boyz II Men. Oh my God, that really helped me through a rough time.”

    Probably Ella Fitzgerald, that’s past, but if you’re talking currently, I really like Mariah Carey. She’s wonderful, she’s a writer, and a producer, and I don’t think people give her credit as she should.

    “I like the things that Irv Gotti is doing with hip-hop tracks and R&B with Ashanti. To be honest, Mariah Carey really pioneered that. All people wanted to talk about was her shorty-short shorts, but forget the chances she took. “Mariah with ODB…what was she thinking?” When I heard it, I said, “I get it, Mariah. Hands up, girl!” (Network Magazine, Nov. 2002)

    Does Madonna’s music save lives? F*** NO…

  224. 4ever December 20, 2010

    Shes old.. so what.. we all have to get old you know.. i dont think it shows you in good light to commenting on her looks… when mariah is 52.. do you think she’ll be flawless looking? exactly… your just picking on her looks.. cause madonna’s sells speak for themselves and you cant say nothing else.

  225. Viki December 20, 2010

    Mariah isn’t flawless looking NOW. She looks like a pregnant old ghetto stripper with pale skin. Mariah’s music from 98 on is recycled b*******. You call that artistic?

    @Andre, I hope Mariah pays you to stan for her, cause it’s obvious you are unemployed

  226. XXOO December 20, 2010

    MADONNA IS THE BEST SELLING FEMALE ARTIST OF ALL TIME

  228. XXOO December 20, 2010

    According to Guinness World Records, Madonna is the Most Successful Female Solo Artist, selling around 200 million albums and 100 million singles worldwide- a combined total which is more than any other female has ever managed

  229. sugarwalls December 20, 2010

    Mariah is the BEST…. PERIOD

  230. Michael P December 21, 2010

    Damn I love how the crazy LAMBS go off the deep end when Madonna is mentioned. I like Mariah as a singer but Madonna is the QUEEN of POP and in another league. Mariah can sing a lot better but Madonna will always be a revolutionary and far more interesting, influential and memorable.

  231. MTURKEY December 21, 2010

    Mariah is a f*****’ b****! Some people said that she has sold in 10 years as Madonna’s selling. But you have to understand this; Mariah has died! She can’t come back to the charts, understand this you stupid ppl! Madonna is still popular in Europe, in Asia, of course in North America and South America! Mariah was a USA singer, and every USA singer has lived this. Generally USA people can’t listen to one singer for 20-30 years. They want to listen to new things. Mariah was a USA singer, and she is not successful in USA now. So she is a died singer. But the queen is still popular in worldwide. She will come back soon, and you stupid Mariah fans will see that she is still the queen, and still very successful!

  232. MTURKEY December 21, 2010

    @Andreas: You’re a silly, and you know this! Wtf that you said Madonna has fans in Europe, Mariah has fans everywhere! Not so far last year Madonna finished her Sticky&Sweet Tour, she performed all around the world including South America and Asia. And the tour is the biggest tour by a female artist ever, this is official! You are still talking something silly! What about saying “Anastasia”. That’s not “ANASTASIA” silly, her name is “ANASTACIA” .She doesn’t like Mariah, but she likes Madonna, like everybody loves and admires her. You can say lie, but think a moment who’s still singing if you can! I know Mariah’s only 2 songs, and the people in here are like me. Nobody knows her songs in my country, but everybody knows Madonna’s best classics,etc. Like A Virgin, La Isla Bonita, Like A Prayer, Vogue bla bla bla. Most of people know Madonna’s many songs, but i’m sure most of people do NOT recognize Mariah here!

  233. Dagwood December 21, 2010

    Mariah for me! Mariah – the greatest!

  234. kaka December 22, 2010

    MADONNA IS BETTER THAN MARIAH SNAREY

  235. kaka December 22, 2010

    Chubby Mariah will never live up to MADONNA’s REIGN.

  236. kaka December 22, 2010

    Both Madonna and Dramariah are flopping but Madonna’s S&S tour grossed like $400m+ and was a total 100% sellout, unlike Mariah Beary.

  237. Beth December 22, 2010

    Madonna is an intellegent well spoken woman that wrote songs with deep messages, can put on an amazing show and made art from her albums, videos, images etc. Mariah Carey is just a singer that sings/writes love songs and has a good voice. There is nothing groundbreaking about her as Whitney Houston did the same thing with more soul (aside from the songwriting part).

    Madonna changed the world forever whileMariah Carey is just a vocalist.

  238. Andreas Greece UK December 22, 2010

    Keep on hating, i went to madonna’s paris concert and she mimed and when she did sing it was horrible.

    MTURKEY your living on another f****** planet. Madonna needs s** to sell, she is a dirty hooker, a used condom … she is begging for producers with her to make music.

    Mariah does this all by herself.

    As for Anas. she loves mariah has said so many times… Mariah is here to stay.. more number ones than madonna, more soul, CAN SING, and way more famous in USA and ASIA than Madonna.

    Keep on wishing cuz Madonna keeps on sagging.

  239. Andreas Greece UK December 22, 2010

    [Ps. Madonna has not changed the world… people having been experiementing with s** for thousands of years… madonna has done f*** all.

    Your just too culturally ignorant to see that.

    MADONNA DIE SOON.

  240. angel December 23, 2010

    Annie Lennox Fire For Mariah Carey
    Posted by Lynn on Wednesday, 22-Dec-2010, 11:27PM EST
    Scottish powerhouse Annie Lennox admits All I Want For Christmas Is You warbler Mariah Carey is still her favourite fellow songbird.

    Despite having her own festive album A Christmas Cornucopia in the shops, Annie still loves hearing Mariah’s biggest selling Christmas song.

    The 55-year-old told Magic 105.4: “Whatever you feel about Mariah Carey, when you hear her sing, ohh my God! I’ve never heard a voice like that!”

    “Oh Santa!” Makes “Best” Lists
    Posted by Lynn on Wednesday, 22-Dec-2010, 9:06PM EST
    Billboard’s Best Of 2010

    Best Of 2010 – December
    Mariah Carey’s “Oh Santa!” dashes 12-1 in just its second week on Adult Contemporary, marking the quickest coronation since the survey adopted Nielsen BDS-monitored radio airplay data in 1993. Carey collects her seventh Adult Contemporary No. 1 and first since “One Sweet Day,” with Boyz II Men, led for 13 weeks in 1995-96.

    Mariah still breaking records and making them

    E! Online’s Best Christmas Music of 2010

    Mariah Carey: “Oh, Santa!”
    In a holiday season stuffed full of singers—Susan Boyle, Jessica Simpson, Katherine McPhee and Wilson Phillips—one diva shall rule them all. Whether with her mom or on a new tune, Carey makes Christmas classics with emotion, melancholy and lots of vocal gymnastics.

    Whoredonna is such a vulgar jealous cow. I hate that w****. She started all this s*** with Mariah and her fanbase. Die Flopdonna, just die you jealous cow.

  250. :) March 8, 2014

    Her last album isn’t successful worldwide and her tour can’t touch Madonna’s. Honestly Beyoncé is the the most overrated music act in music history and people started to realize that. Now she tries to stay relevant by acting like a desperate ho*. For now she didn’t even beat Britney Spears nor Mariah Carey let alone the queen of pop Madonna. Keep dreaming forever honey.

  251. yang October 18, 2015

    Hey it’s nearly the end of 2015 and it’s no doubt who is still the queen of music – Madonna!!

    Her latest tour promoting recent album Rebel Heart is sold out in anywhere in the world, especially in Asia. Madonna is holding the record of the artist that have highest ticket price selling in the quickest time in Hongkong and same scenario in Philipines, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan and Macau. Why Mariah’s concerts have been humilated canceled in Hongkong and not sold out in anywhere in the world nowadays. Who is the one and only queen of music over the last 3 decades? B****, IT’S MADONNA!
