Catfishing? Mariah Carey Debuts Odd Single Cover For ‘You Don’t Know What To Do’

Published: Saturday 21st Jun 2014 by Sam

“Sweet, sweet, Fantasy baby…”

Mariah Carey is quite the prankster these days. Or at least we hope she is.

Because, it’d be various flavours of sad, if she wasn’t “in” on the joke that has become her artwork of late.

Recent years have seen the songbird demonstrate a flare for Photoshop, yet the cover for her latest single ‘You Don’t Know What To Do’ may be pushing things too far.

The Wale assisted cut is the fifth and newest single to be lifted from the diva’s new album ‘Me. I Am…Mariah. The Elusive Chanteuse’. Yet, the approach to its artwork was anything but new.

Unveiled by Mimi herself on Twitter, the cover appears to be a festively edited version of the visual for its parent album – with a different face shot pasted on.

Compare and contrast below…

My oh my, Mimi, my oh my.

    Mariah Hun I love you but ugh that photoshop job is terrible!

    • my tight cooter snack June 21, 2014

      She shot all these pictures in early 2013 before she hurts her shoulder and arm.

      • John June 21, 2014

        Even if that’s true her face never looked like that in early 2013..Right?

      • iHeart June 21, 2014

        I understand that because when she did #Beautiful she was on the slimmer side. However though that photoshop job looks ratchet and as if they used a body double and just copy n’ paste her face over it.

    Someone on twitter said “Is this a PS4 game?”, lol but this is my jam though.

    • Stephanie Tha Bitxh! June 21, 2014

      What is your Twitter name?…

      • Mark111 June 21, 2014

        Now now, I can’t give out that kind of information. Lol

    • Crooked Dupri June 21, 2014

      Yeah, I have no problem with the song, but this cover is…GAWSH! Mariah, what’s going on?

  3. GaGa’s Tampon June 21, 2014

    Yawn ..
    This is getting tedious now

    • G.U.Y June 21, 2014

      While I find your avatar comical as hell, I’ve seen other bald pics such as Beyoncé, Rihanna and the like lol just thought you might be interested 🙂

  4. lmfao June 21, 2014

    Now Playing: Beyoncé – PRETTY HURTS

    • John June 21, 2014

  7. NICKI IS QUEEN June 21, 2014

    I like this song but she is overdoing the photoshop.

  8. Stephanie Tha Bitxh! June 21, 2014


  9. HOTSTUFF June 21, 2014

    LMFAOOO!!!! wth is wrong with Mimi and her team ?! …..whats taking so long to start promoting thirsty and release the video ? this is so messy.

  10. FutureCIARA June 21, 2014

    OMG It look sooo Fukking creepy!!

    Like her head is detachable or something!

  11. FutureCIARA June 21, 2014

    I absolutely CANNOT!

    Is her team going bankrupt or something? It looks like she hired High-schoolers who just learned how to use Adobe Photoshop to conjure up these horrible projects.

    Her face looks like a mask, oddly proportioned in that pic.

    Mimi I cant, Hopefully one day we can all try and forget this sloppy ass era.

    • John June 21, 2014

      Oh, a ciara stan is talking…lol

      • sleazy June 21, 2014

        whats wrong? that ci stan preached the truth you mad? a ciara stan can talk anyone fav who can go x3 plat can talk

    • Crooked Dupri June 21, 2014

      Yeah a Ciara stan can talk once my faves album debuts at 44. Lol, wow!

      • Crooked Dupri June 21, 2014

        Don’t get me wrong, I love Ciara, but not this stan has a nerve to talk.

  12. FutureCIARA June 21, 2014

    Girl NOT that they added a few pieces of hair strands in front of her face to make it blend…..

  13. Yea ok June 21, 2014

    Chile if TGJ had it their way she would be on the cover with her arm still in a sling from last year. I don’t see why this was even a post. Mariah has always been heavy on the photoshop. Every. Album cover. There is nothing new to see here folks. Move it along. I’m bored with all these posts about Mariah especially now that we all see it’s an attack. JLO is debuting with worse numbers than Mimi yet we have only seen one post about that. Y’all seriously need to grow up. This is getting old.

    • Really?! June 21, 2014

      Other blogs aren’t even posting abouy the album anymore.

      • Crooked Dupri June 21, 2014

        That’s because they’re too busy talking about J.Lo Selling 30,000 in the first week. or “predicted” And because Thatgrapejuice needs Mariah to bring hits.

  14. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 21, 2014

    I stopped at “Sweet, Sweet fantasy baby”.

    This blog gets more disgusting by the minute. First of all, none of the monkeys writing for this site seem to be educated. Secondly, “journalism” has never been so biased, EVER! It’s just ridiculous that you found the need to make a post on something like this when there is way more important information, you know like another diva’s first week sales. You bums can continue on your little hate streak for whatever reason, but just remember that Mariah can buy all of your pathetic lives and this flop ass blog with just One phone call. You dusty ass bitchess.

    • TRUTH SERUM June 21, 2014

      It’s a blog, their not required to write with journalistic integrity. I find it interesting that some of the worst commenters on here try to hold the blog at a standard that their not capable of achieving. You come to this blog because it’s “messy”. The fact that it’s your fave now, you’re in your feelings.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 21, 2014

        Excuse me? Who are you to be attacking me this early in the morning? I’m entitled to my opinion. Everyone who frequents this site agree that the “writers” are biased AS HELL!

        And no one is in their feelings about anything. Also, you can’t tell me that I come to this blog because it’s “messy”. Just leave me one and run along…

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 21, 2014

        & it doesn’t matter if you believe that I’m one of the “worst commenters”. At the end of the day, I’m not the one writing for a blog. What I’m doing isn’t my profession. It is a bad reflection on Sam since this is his career that he’s making a joke of with this mess.

      • Teacher June 21, 2014

        NOT you tryna come on here & check somebody but end up fuckiin up urself!
        Learn the diff btwn there, they’re, n their cuz clearly you don’t know!

      • TRUTH SERUM June 21, 2014

        You’re correcting me but used “urself”. We’re not going yo debate about grammar or syntax because in real life, I’m waayyy out of your league.

      • Really?! June 21, 2014

        @Truth, u said everything i was thinking! Most of thehe people who comment are even more pathetic. Especially the b**** you responded too above.

      • Really?! June 21, 2014


    • TRUTH SERUM June 21, 2014

      No one’s forcing you to come to this blog, if you’re unhappy with the writer’s stop supporting it. Hit em where it hurts. You are absolutely right, you’re entitled to your opinion as am I. He’s a professional blogger and this is what most bloggers do. For clarification, based on your comments from the past year, you come here for the stan wars. Maybe you’re different now that you’re eating a slice of humble pie. Peace, Love, and Soul 😉

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 21, 2014

        Girl, gone…

        I never said I was forced to come here. I will continue to leave my comments (based on my opinions) like everyone else. You should attack them too since you felt the need to call me out!

        “For clarification, based on your comments from the past year, you come here for the stan wars”

        This I stupid as hell. The “Stan wars” are funny at times but I show up here for Mariah. At the end of the day, it isn’t my fault if the other bitchess on this blog are stressed over what I say.

        “Maybe you’re different now that you’re eating a slice of humble pie.”
        Wow, & your stupidity continues. Death @ humble pie. I am the same as I’ve always been so just stop. I knew Mariah’s album wasn’t going to perform well, not many do well at her age after so many years in the industry. + the horrible promo campaign and string of singles said it all. So please keep that non-sense. \_ \_ \_ \_


      • Reaper June 21, 2014

        That’s exactly why some of them are mad.
        I mean some of these people literally live on this blog, say some of the most wreck less things about people they don’t know and now all of a sudden “it’s getting old” yet they still come here to clown other artist or my personal favorite,”I’m leaving” and yet months after making that statement are still here.
        Sam and his staff are doing nothing different than the ones complaining. The lambs just don’t like it because it’s Mariah Carey that’s being talked about.Such hypocrites!

    • Tisha June 21, 2014

    Sam, Lay off her, Yes we know shes over doing the photoshop as you’ve said in the half of mariah hate articles
    Honestly I’m glad shes pushing a new single that actually looks like it can climb the chart

  16. Proud-Arianator June 21, 2014

    Cowriah busy looking like a beached whale

    • That Pressed Sam Juice June 21, 2014

      Ariana lools like a s** trade worker. She been ran thru by all dem rappers she’s trying to collabo with.

    • IStanForYourFav June 21, 2014

      Anorexiana fans shouldn’t be shading the reason their fav is relevant.. They should be appreciative to Mariah and thank God that her career is where it is now, because Ariana wouldn’t even have a career.

  17. Is TGJ run by Eminem? June 21, 2014

    Lmao the OBSESSION with Mariah Carey of this site is REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • IStanForYourFav June 21, 2014

      Your name is too funny

  18. Queen M June 21, 2014

    When will THIEFonce deliver such HEAVENLY VOCALs as the Queen herself in “You don’t know what to do”?! When??!

    24 years into her career and still slaying yall basic faves!!

    • Kay June 21, 2014

      And what the f*** is a Jhene compared to a Mariah huh? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING so you my dear may exit stage left.

  19. Beygency June 21, 2014

    PHOTOSHOPriah sCAREY should be ashamed

    • That Pressed Sam Juice June 21, 2014

      Yawnce should be ashamed of her cottage cheese thighs.

  20. IStanForYourFav June 21, 2014

    We didn’t need the hate article because I hate to tell you, but these people don’t look like this. I should know, I’ve met a lot of them. Anyway, I literally H.A.T.E.U. for this cover Mariah. It’s too much Adobe. I believe the Art of Letting Go, #Beautiful, the promo shots, and the album covers are lightly airbrushed as she has mentioned they were taken while she was on AI, but this one, no I can’t bat for your team on this one hun. The great thing is the fact Mariah released a new single and that it has potential to be a hit. It actually is my third favorite track on the album, so Mimi needs to promote! Good luck MiMi.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 21, 2014

      • IStanForYourFav June 21, 2014

        @Beygency ????

  21. IStanForYourFav June 21, 2014

    Sam you tried it with the recent years of airbrushing. We all know that Mariah’s weight goes up and down, but that doesn’t stop her from being extremely pretty and a legend. I don’t think Mariah overdoes it on Photoshop (excluding Thirsty and this cover). All of her covers can be proven that she was that size during the time of the photoshoot.

  22. Milesjai June 21, 2014

    Problem of her new songs is her vocal..

    It started so low…. And even the high note not impressive..

    What happened to her voice ??

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 21, 2014

      I agree. Her vocals on this album sound robotic and manufactured at times.

      • IStanForYourFav June 21, 2014

        Really? I think she sounds great. The only thing that can sounded fake is the You’re Mine belt and the near chipmunk sound on the first verse on The Art of Letting Go. I think that is just Mariah’s voice nowadays. I don’t get the big deal. But I LOVE Cry. It’s one of my favorite songs ever.

    • Crooked Dupri June 21, 2014

      Ariana probably wants to show that her and Mariah do have different styles of music. I love the song though. Then Iggy’s ugly self comes up..ummm

  23. That Pressed Sam Juice June 21, 2014

    Sam stays pressed….against Mariah’s c******* !
    TGJ = Mariah’s pu$$y juice !

    • Crooked Dupri June 21, 2014

      Lol, would you like to go a site where they love Mariah Carey?

  24. Gigi June 21, 2014

    Sam and Perez have both been interacting with JLo online,Twitter etc. That’s why neither one of them will post about her FLOP album.

    • IStanForYourFav June 21, 2014

      JLO has been interacting with everyone. She even liked two of my friends pics on Instagram. She’s everywhere right now. I know she is exhausted.

      • Crooked Dupri June 21, 2014

        Yeah, and she even went to Wendy Williams. That was a big suprise! Nobody famous really comes to her show.

      • Really?! June 21, 2014

        @Crooked, only famous people drop by wendy, what are u talking about!

      • Crooked Dupri June 21, 2014

        When someone famous does come to her show, she makes a big deal because she can’t believe it herself.

  25. A.K.A more like D.O.A. June 21, 2014

    Another Mariah hate post. How predictable and reductive.

  26. Suicide Blonde June 21, 2014

    Well, look at it this way, at least, another single is going to be released, she hasn’t abandoned the project yet.

    • Stephanie Tha Bitxh! June 21, 2014

      Shut up!

      • Suicide Blonde June 21, 2014

        Did i say something wrong?

      Suicide is a rotted kunnt.

  27. Sheila June 21, 2014

    Who is this tired queen always writing negative articles on mariah?? Mariah is an ICON. Be respectful. I don’t care if she sells one cd, the vocals are incredible and honestly THIS IS THE BEST CD SHE HAS EVER DONE. The MIMI cd I skipped songs, THIS CD I LISTEN TO EVERY SONG. CRY, CAMUFLOUGE, heavenly, MAKE IT LOOK GOOD, very soulful and great lyrics. LOVE THIS CD, breaks my heart and then makes me wanna dance. The nasty hateful queen writing nice on JLO whose talent is her LOOKS but hating on Mimi should be ashamed. BAD TIRED GAY writer who of course is a hater

  28. Jhenestan June 21, 2014

    Mariah is a flop yall 🙁

  29. Timago June 21, 2014

  30. TheOne June 21, 2014

    Is this blog even about music anymore?! Why focus on an ALBUM COVER when the actually song is so freaking great. The days where pictures are more important than the MUSIC. TGJ is simply PATHETIC one would think they new better!!

    I enjoy this song!!!

        DEATH! LOLOLOL You betta check me boo..

  32. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez June 21, 2014

    You know what TGJ you guys are way TOO pressed, y’all weren’t acting like school girl queens discussing up elementary like phrases or one liners about Mariah since the post you came out with with her saying “Oh I haven’t heard ‘R**** by Camel’.” . Mariah doesn’t give a s*** about Beyoncé, her fans know this and that’s why you attack her all the time. That’s so sad because your fave that is also and the ‘plus girl’ side of the scale is struggling to catch up to Mariah’s impact commercial sales wise and impact on the history as one of the best selling females, boo I don’t know if she’ll ever make it 54 million sold in the US? When will Beyoncé sale past 20 million, since she’s such an album seller? Beyhive are so delusional, Mariah is above you in every way so it doesn’t matter if she had flop first week numbers (No shade to Ciara) she could still make great R&B music that outclass your faves generic music. S*** I know ole will turn 70, still shaking her ass to partition and p**** pop till her back gives out just so she could sell. You delusional hive paid no attention to 4 when she was in her place of vulnerability (as she says) and now that this album has s** and getting nutted by a pimp in the back of a limo with the driver jerking his rod in the front watching. Isn’t voyeurism? And you call Rihanna a s***? At least her sexual endorsement is always in her bedroom, how could you say Rihanna is a how when your fave had her legs open so wide at the Grammies that it seemed like she was waiting for Jay to just f*** her on stage. She is a mess, even Miley has more respect for viewers whenever she performs. She’s just shaking her 9 year old boy ass, while Beyoncé is handing her pum pum (v***** for your slowasses) on a platter for everyone to get a piece. I just can’t… Beyoncé is Mariah’s lessor not Beyoncé >>>>Mariah.

    • Reaper June 21, 2014

      What does this even have to do with this article in particular? The hive are so dumb, yet your ass is sitting here writing these long ass paragraphs about s*** that has nothing to do with the article.
      Take this “L” and move on,or at least stay on topic!

      • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez June 21, 2014

        I was on topic, TGJ is pressed. In my paragraph I explained why, so maybe you should worry about your comprehension skills rather my motive.

  33. Molly June 21, 2014

    I can’t with Beyonce fans talking when she also photoshops alot & smh c’mon Mariah this ish is starting to get ridiculous.

    • Stephanie Tha Bitxh! June 21, 2014

      Girl, Mariah has been photoshopping for YEARS! This is nothing new… TGJ is just pressed.

      • Molly June 21, 2014

        I know that but this is a bit extreme we all know Mariah doesn’t look like that today & its no shade.

  35. coolness June 21, 2014

    Another day, another article from TGJ throwing Mimi under the bus. *Sigh*, when will it end? Now Mariah sis, I love you but I need you to lay off the Adobe Photoshop! Wtf? It looks like she hires a couple of inexperienced graphic designers and just cut and paste a different head unto her body. Please Mimi you are a legend and as much as you weren’t always the best at visual representation, this is a mess and embarrassing.

  36. eric June 21, 2014

    I think these covers are some of her best, though the airbrushing is excessive in some places. How does a professional use photo correction software and end up making a naturally beautiful face look flat and unnatural?

  37. slayage June 21, 2014

    Lmfao I’m dead at her looking like jim carrey from the mask.

  38. JOHNVIDAL June 21, 2014

    So this blog is definitely not about music anymore, right? How the hell can you give covers more importance than the MUSIC??? Cause the album and song are fabulous! Sam is disgusting now, sorry. And yeah, the cover is bad, who cares? This era is obviously about releasing the album and very little more. Get over it.

    • Wolf Pu*sy June 21, 2014

      Maybe because the single cover is just as important as the single? can’t promote a song with a flop single cover that’s photoshoped to hell and back.

      • TheOne June 21, 2014

        When you’re driving are you looking at a single cover or listening to the MUSIC?!

        Dummies are over this site! LoL TGJ is sad!!

      • JOHNVIDAL June 22, 2014

        As important???? LMAO Shows how superficial you are.

      This blog? This Article? The song? or the single cover?

  43. MC!! June 21, 2014

    “Take your bags and go boo!!” It’s just a damn cover!! The song is good that’s all that matters!!

    • Crooked Dupri June 21, 2014

      Thank you. I love the song as well, but people can be so critical. Everyone’s gonna have an opinion though, so let them run their mouths.

  44. IStanForYourFav June 21, 2014

    “That definitely was NOT my selection for the cover…ugh”

    “Yes, I would love for you to send me your art for #YDKWTD (’cause at this point IDKWTD)”

    Mariah hates the cover herself, but her sense of humor is hilarious lol. Still love the song.

  45. Sisqo (King of R&B) June 21, 2014

    All your favs look a hot mess though. they couldn’t stand next to Mariah in her 20s.The nerve of some people.
