Mariah Carey Teases New Tour & More From ‘Me. I Am…Mariah’

Published: Monday 21st Jul 2014 by Sam

Mariah Carey seemingly vanished when her album, ‘Me. I Am…Mariah. The Elusive Chanteuse’, did the same on the charts upon its release back in May.

Naturally, the diva’s unexplained absence from the spotlight led many to believe that the plug had been pulled on the disaster campaign. After all, if no one’s buying, then no one’s making money. And if the latter isn’t occurring, then labels won’t spend. Point, blank, period.

However, the singer’s fans needn’t fret. For, according to Mimi, there’s more to come.

Writing on her newly re-designed website, Carey told her Lambs:

I just wanted to thank everyone for always supporting me. You know Me. I Am Mariah… It’s only the beginning! The elusive Chanteuse dahhlings!

I can’t wait to see you when I hit the road, starting very soon and I’m very excited about it! Love ya much, bye bye!” –Mariah

Hmm.

As much as we’ve heard the “it’s not over” spiel from many an artist over the years, we want to do Mariah due diligence and wait to see what she’s “apparently” cooking up.

The possibility of a tour sounds great. Because, given the album’s sales (or lack-there-of), mounting a successful trek – which we’re almost certain will be billed as an “intimate affair” – could help establish at least one positive “face” to this mess of a project.

After all, if Lady GaGa is currently able to fill out arenas after ‘ARTPOP’, there’s no reason why Mariah can’t do the same with  theaters…for a “close to the fans” experience (note the PR spin).

There still exists the issue of her unpredictable live vocals (see: one song “on”, next song “off”…and, of course, the incessant lip-syncing). But on paper, at least, her predicament is one that is still “workable” given the magnitude of her name.

Hopefully, her next move is a wise one.

    If everyone supported her, the album would have sols.

    That said she is a legend, who has sold more than 200million records.
    She can do what she wants, and put out music for fans and not radio..

    long live Legendriah Carey!!! She has nothing to prove. Have your fave to catch up to her album sales, radio airplay and impact on culture before you shade.

  3. John July 21, 2014

    My thoughts? That you should shut the f*** up and stop shading Mariah. The hell is “Sam” anyway? You checking for Mariah more than most lambs…

    • Sam Loves Rihanna July 21, 2014

      Sam is a q**** who is part of the BeyHIVe, that annoying group of queens who feel the need to trash other artists to make Beyoncé feel like she is the only successful artist around. They shade other artists to uplift Beyoncé for doing the same acts they shade.

      • Yazmine July 21, 2014

        If you don’t like it. GTFO then!

  4. Casual-T July 21, 2014

    Mariah has moved into Diana-Cher-Tina-Celine-Patti-Barbara territory. The elusive chanteuse can sell out venues regardless of whether or not she has a recent hit out.

    • Joseline stan July 21, 2014

      Lmao we will see about that.

  5. TinyMimi July 21, 2014

    Mariah Carey can do what she wants. What Rihanna, Beyonce, Katy Perry are doing from year to year, Mariah did for a whole DECADE. She has earned the right to release the music SHE (not you) wants, with the promo SHE (not your blog) wants, with the tour SHE (not your opinion) wants. If there ever was anything to prove, she already did a long time ago, with pure brilliance. Now stop shading Mariah on your lame blog no one cares about.

    • Sam Loves Rihanna July 21, 2014

      Not one decades. Two decades. Remember, she owned Billboard’s Hot 100 single twice with “One Sweet Day” (1990s) and “We Belong Together” (2000s).

  6. christinastherealtalent July 21, 2014

    At the end of the day, she’s still sold over 200 million ww and that is far from being considered a flop. Some Stans only wish their faves can sell even 50 million ww- don’t include singles sales- only count physical album sales.

  7. CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

    Death at the theater shade. Lana tease tbh, no shade. She had a high demand.

  8. Truth July 21, 2014

    And another pressed write up by Samantha LOL I laugh at you

  9. Stephy July 21, 2014

    The only time this flop ass site is getting any REAL comments is when they (David & Sam) are trashing, shading or putting down RIHANNA/MARIAH. Hey Sam, your site is dry, boring & becoming repetitive just like Mariah’s LIVE vocals (or lack there-of). How about you take some of your own shade (advice) and spice up this boring FLOP disaster of a site. Most of the best ENTERTAINING commentators has pack they shitt up & left.
    .
    .
    As for Mariah, she is a legend. She can do whatever she feels like. Stop typing like Mariah is some new artist BROKE N’ trynna catch a break. Yall ain’t posting shade on those other FLOP R&B (whom I may add LESSORS of Mimi)artists post after post! So, why bash a woman that has done it all & some more… BYE FLOPjuice!

    • Sam Loves Rihanna July 21, 2014

      Clock her, Stephy!!!

  10. Sam Loves Rihanna July 21, 2014

    Truthfully, Mariah does not care what status quo wants to her record and release. She paid her dues and reap rewards that no other artist matched that came after her (maybe except R. Kelly and Mary J. Blige). It doesn’t matter that she hasn’t release a platinum-selling album since 2008 when she has more platinum plaques than Beyoncé + Gaga + Adele + Rihanna + Ciara + Katy + Brandy combined.

    • FAF July 21, 2014

      Dead @ u being nope

      • Sam Loves Rihanna July 22, 2014

        Pardon? Lies you tell. I’m only me. I’m not Beyoncé and become other people. I’m an originator.

  11. Nope July 21, 2014

    Sam should write essays regarding Ciara and Brandy’s low sales instead of constantly working about Mariah’s. Sam TRIES to dis Mariah all them time and then oraises people like Brandy, Ciara, Cheryl Cole and Kelly rowland who don’t sell well themselves. Save your essays for your girls Samantha.

    • Nope July 21, 2014

      *praises*

      • FAF July 21, 2014

        Excuses dahhling

    • Taylor July 22, 2014

      Exactly,..especially Brandys UGLY @ss. Write about how this is her third flop out if 6 albums.

      • Dev July 22, 2014

        Hold up, wait a minute. I agree with the first comment but call Brandy or another ugly has nothing to do with music. I agree that Mariah can do what the hell age wants and has such a tidy back catalogue of music that people will still want to see her! No shade, but people brought Whitney (rip) tickets in droves when it was evident that she could no longer sing before she hit the stadium stage. In defence of Brandy, she did her thing back in the day and gas earned her stripes. Ciara, Cheryl Cole and the rest? Dust

  12. BOY July 21, 2014

    JUST WAIT B.TCHES JUST WAIT. AND WHILE YOU ARE WAITING BUY SOME NEW WIGS.
    ENOUGH SAID.

  13. Sam Loves Rihanna July 21, 2014

    The fact that Sam spends his precious time to shade one of the queens of pop music, Mariah Carey, proves that she is more relevant than the faves he praises not as often. Catch that T.

  14. INF July 21, 2014

        She’s a lesbian, dahling…there’s a different, like you’re a hermaphrodite.

  15. IStanForYourFav July 21, 2014

    Hmmm if she marketed it correctly (like if she did that album), it actually can work. All she needs to do is play on the retirement (Cher: Goodbye Tour i.e.) thing and market with huge venues in like Brazil, Japan, China, Australia (aka where she sold out last year and is 5k people), and go lighter in the USA and do maybe a show or two in the UK, she might just pull it off. No stan, but Mariah never is inconsistent when it comes to her tour vocals.

  16. Yazmine July 21, 2014

    Coming 5th of Never!

  17. RoyalMale July 21, 2014

    Sam, aren’t you tired of thinking if negative things to say about artist you claim to love? What type of ass backwards ish…. Oh wait… Your from the UK… Try adjusting that stick up your a$$ to hit the area of the a*** cavity that gives you pleasure, and not pain.

  18. justme July 21, 2014

    Even though you guys say that. The lambs have prove they are not spending the coins for mariah.. People get so pressed over lady gaga katy rihanna and Beyoncé being able to sell out venues when legends can’t. Intimate venue no thats a way of not showing how your concert will flop If you do arenas. . Only one female legend has proved that no matter what you say about her she still has more successful tours than any female and her name is Madonna.. check her receipts and get back to me. She is the legend who doesn’t have to worry about album sales mariah still does she always has. That’s why they were talking crap about glitter. Mariah is an album seller not a venue filler.

    • IStanForYourFav July 21, 2014

      Yes Madonna fills seats, but that ends there. She does worry about sales. This is why she gives her album away as a concert “bundle.” People shade Glitter, but it still sold over 3 mil. Last time I checked, people celebrate 3 mil nowadays. Also, Tina Turner, Cher, Beyoncé, Celine, and a few other women sell their venues. And an intimate thing actually would be better than venues. Also, in 2003 Mariah sold out with 35k inManila, 50k in Malaysia, and over 70k to China. Mariah is just a vocalist, not an entertainer like Tina, B, or Madonna. No need for the shade.

      • RoyalDude July 21, 2014

        They want to find ways to shade intimate shows. When in all honesty they (personally) would have a hard time selling out the corner store let alone a venue. Mariah Carey will forever be shaded by this site and it’s minimum followers but she will always be known as the voice that shaped a generation. And still known for selling more albums then these girls today.

  19. RICHIE_RICH July 21, 2014

    Sam cut it out. MC doesn’t have anything prove to any one. Enough said.

  20. RoyalDude July 21, 2014

    Another Mariah post on TGJ = another tired reading session from Samantha’s lack luster journalism

  21. Juan1n4Million July 21, 2014

    I’m excited to see Mariah’s next step with this campaign. I wish her the best… Even though the album hasn’t sold doesn’t take away from the quality of the music (her best reviews since The Emancipation.)
    I’m starting to notice that a lot of the unnecessary shade on this blog comes from the writers and not the comment section. That’s so wack to me. You don’t have to put other artist down just because you’re not a fan. Smh! Where’s the integrity?

  22. tyler July 21, 2014

    Why do you insist on coming at Mariah like that??? Not cool Sam.

    • RoyalDude July 21, 2014

      Because nobody insist on c****** in him

  23. Skyfall July 21, 2014

    Queen.

  24. Skyfall July 21, 2014

    Katy is not selling out her shows, so she’s dismissed. Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Beyonce are all in their prime and so it’s no shocking that they’re selling out arenas & stadiums. Madonna is just in another level when it comes to touring she only does stadium tours now, so one show for her is the equivalent of 3-5 shows from a arena which is why she also grosses so high. On the other hand there is nothing wrong with intimate shows, coming from artist like Mariah & Celine who are known for vocals I would rather see them in an intimate setting than in a bigger arena or stadium. Besides Celine grosses at least $5 million for one week in Vegas will some artist struggle to gross over this with 5 arena shows.

    • Joseline stan July 21, 2014

      Mariah is (barely) a studio singer these days. No ones gonna spend their hard earned coin on her pig in a blanket ass lol

  25. Joseline stan July 21, 2014

    WHO would pay to see this cow struggle and mime through her overrated/mostly forgotten catalogue?

    • SMH July 21, 2014

      WHY is a joseline stan even speaking?

      • Joseline stan July 21, 2014

        Because God gave me fingers and i will use them to bash Miss Cowrey! You mad?

      • SMH July 21, 2014

        Lol mad at what? The fact that beyonce is getting outsold by Rihanna, the chick that t***** hoodrat you stan for is trying to look like?

  26. SMH July 21, 2014

    Not surprised at the shade. This is a beyonce ass-kissing site. Let’s get one thing clear here. Until beyonce can match Mariah’s sales, number of hits, and years of consistent success in the business, all you beyonce clitriders can have several. Mariah has ONE ALBUM that has outsold beyonce’s and destiny’s child’s entire discographies COMBINED. So shade Mariah all you want; beyonce will NEVER see the success that Miss Carey has, I don’t care how many smoke & mirrors camp beyonce puts up to make her success look bigger than what it really is. Numbers don’t lie; PR teams do.

    • Joseline stan July 21, 2014

      Meanwhile Beyoncé is a bigger star and more powerful brand than Throwback Carey has EVER been. Mariah couldn’t even sell out a Popeyes dining room these days. Kii.

      • SMH July 21, 2014

        Meanwhile, Mariah sits on 200 million records sold and more number 1 hits than any female artist in history while beyonce still struggles to push an album past 3 million after 10 years as a solo artist. You can sit now.

      • Joseline stan July 21, 2014

        Yet her CURRENT album hasn’t even sold 100k! #POORDAT #CIARAOUTSOLDHER #KMICHELLEOUTSOLDHER #TAMAROUTSOLDHER

      • SMH July 21, 2014

        Can you explain why beyonce still hasn’t outsold Rihanna?

      • Joseline stan July 21, 2014

        Now you are clinging to Rihanna like Mariah clings to burgers. B**** stick to the subject at hand. Bey >>> Mimeriah

    • Xscape___ July 21, 2014

      What album is that exactly?

      • SMH July 21, 2014

        Music Box. 32 million sold.

        beyonce & destiny’s child combined album sales=30 million.

        You’re dismissed.

      • Xscape___ July 21, 2014

        Discography is not just album sales
        so like I said what Mariah album has
        outsold Bey & DC3’s entire discography.

      • SMH July 21, 2014

        Lol excuses & splitting hairs. Mariah outsold them with one album. The end.

  27. Xscape___ July 21, 2014

    Here y’all go with this 200 million
    sold & being a legend b*******. Surely
    someone who sold that much with “ease”
    shouldn’t be selling 57k first week.

    • Joseline stan July 21, 2014

      THANK YOU!!! Even Cher sold more than that lol. Nobody takes Mooriah seriously.

      • Xscape___ July 21, 2014

        Tired of these excuses.

      • SMH July 21, 2014

        Why, because those are numbers that beyonce will never see in life?

      • Joseline stan July 21, 2014

        Exactly who the f*** will in 2014? Beyoncé is easily outselling and outcrossing her contemporaries. F*** Mooriahs 200 million. SL cultural impact alone trumps anything Granmariah had EVER done!

      • Joseline stan July 21, 2014

        **outgrossing

      • Xscape___ July 21, 2014

        Lol idc what Beyoncé sells, that’s not my fav.
        Im just checking y’all’s flawed logic.

    • SMH July 21, 2014

      Lol y’all can come up with all the excuses in the world. Beyonce will NEVER see the sales that Mariah has. I said what I said. The end.

    • IStanForYourFav July 21, 2014

      Your comments applies to everyone then. That’s like saying since Aretha Franklin hasn’t sold or since Prince hasn’t… Then so… And why is A Jose stan coming talking about everyone? Even last year she made nearly 20 million off one job. That’s more than Jose’s entire existence. He will be gone in 5 years. Coming for Rihanna, B, and etc., when he should be worried about tucking his d*** properly and making sure Steebie get his Honey royalties so he can pay his child support.

      • Joseline stan July 21, 2014

        Don’t compare Mimeriah to real legends like Aretha!!! People actually respect her fat shady ass! No one gives a s*** about Moo Moo kiiii

      • IStanForYourFav July 21, 2014

        If that was the case, then why is named as one of the top vocalist who changed the music industry? And why is Aretha performing her songs and Mariah’s friend?

    • Stephy July 21, 2014

      N***** please, Celine Dion sold 77K in her first week & has sold 200 million records. BYE

  28. SMH July 21, 2014

    I’ll tell you what, b*****. Call me when beyonce can finally sell past 3 million. Better yet, call me when she sees the top of the Hot 100 again.

    • Joseline stan July 21, 2014

      Call me when mariah sees it again b**** lol wtf

      • IStanForYourFav July 21, 2014

        Jose stans are seething lol. It’s o.k. We all know Jose made $220.00+ from her iTunes single. Don’t brag about it.

  29. Memo July 21, 2014

    Everyone stopped buying ”Beyoncé” like two months ago and you don’t talk about that.

    • Joseline stan July 21, 2014

      No one bought The Forgotten Chanteuse kiiiii

      • IStanForYourFav July 21, 2014

        Just like no one bought José’s “singles…?”

      • Memo July 22, 2014

        Pobre, vamos a ver cuántos números hace Beyoncé para cuando fuere vieja. Why do you guys have an orgasm over selling 3 million copies? That’s mediocre and average at best.

  30. Joseline stan July 21, 2014

    These lambs have some f***** nerve. They mad at the hive because their fav is a washed up beached whale that no one uses anymore! Her tour will FLOP just like her album and her last 100 singles!!

    BLOOP
    BLOOP!

    • IStanForYourFav July 21, 2014

      Why are the Lambs mad? They are not mad at Beyoncé. If you’re a Beyoncé fan, why you not mad at Joseline for coming for Beyoncé?

      • Joseline stan July 21, 2014

        LOL A) I see you couldn’t answer the question and B) Because Sam’s fav is B, and I still don’t see the pressed Lambs. All I see is she is them saying stop the shade and she’s a legend. C) Tell me, if B is the Queen, why is José coming for her?

  32. Beyvey July 21, 2014

    LISTEN HERE B******. I love Mariah’s Music, but I wish that you would stop bringing Beyonce onto this. And please stop with the 200Milli exucuse. Okay we get it Mimi has sold millio s of records and is one of the greatest singers to grace the earth, but don’t come at Beyonce with the “Until she can match Mariahs sales…” Blah blah blah.
    Last time I check, Beyonce has sold 130-140Million records in 11 years and with ONLY 5 Albums and ONLY 5 #1’s.
    Mariah has sold +200Million with 13 albums and endless #1 singles. So you CANNOT compare the 2.

    Mariah has went from selling Diamond albums to not even being able to sell 100k in the U.S after weeks of release. I would consider Beyonce way more consistent, because she’s still selling more or as much as the younger hot girls (RihRih,Katy…). Not to mention breaking records left and right with her tours and accomplishments.

    But we all know Mariah in her prime is x10 better than Beyonce in her prime (Vocal-wise) but Beyonce is 100% more POWERFUL now than Mariah has ever been.

    • Grump July 21, 2014

      This is why I don’t like stans. Beyoncé has sold 140 million records with 5 albums? If you’re going to add destiny child album sales then add their total discography. She has sold 140 million records with 9 studio albums. Mariah sold 150 million records from 1990-1999 with 7 studio albums. Mariah was the #1 artist from 1990-1999 according to billboard. Beyoncé on the other hand is yet to top any decade. Just saying…

      • beyvey July 21, 2014

        ACTUALLY MY FRIEND, BEYONCE HAS SOLD 140 MILLION RECORDS NOT COUNTING HER DC SALES.
        Of you wanna add DC SALES then its over 210Million records. I did not count her DC SALES. 140 are her solo career only.

  33. LB July 21, 2014

    I find it funny that Mariah has practically ZERO tours and is est. to be worth $510 million whilst Madonna has been touring since forever and is est to be worth $700 million.


    Like what has she been doing for 30 years LMAO?

    • Grump July 21, 2014

    The only FEMALE that stays against Beyonce as the most powerful woman in Music ever, is MADONNA, the Queen of pop. Beyonce is almost, and will eventually take Madonna’s crown as the baddest female in Music EVER.
    Whether you admit it or not, this is the truth.

    As far as I know it is quite normal for divas over 40 to have a decline in record sales. They ALL have. Why is this a shock for some? Some sell more than others, bit there is a steady decline. This does not take away all they achieved
    Everyones fave will get older and sell less, the law of the industry.

    Madonna is the only female performer from the 80’s
    Still doing stadiums! That’s great. On the other hand
    How has Madonna, Janet, Mariah,etc. from that era album sales been?

    • tits mcgee July 21, 2014

      *how have their sales been with their last few albums?

  38. vee July 21, 2014

    Oh so y’all are still bragging about 200Mill ? The excuses!


    Mariah: 13 albums, +200Millio WW.
    Beyonce: 5 albums, 140Million WW

    Do the ratio b******.

    N oh btw, Single Ladies: 10.1Million WW. Vision of love < 5 Mill WW

    • Grump July 21, 2014

      THERE YOU GO AGAIN. 9 ALBUMS NOT 5. DO NOT ADD DESTINY’S CHILD SALES AND NOT ADD THEIR DISCOGRAPHIES. TF?

    • Grump July 21, 2014

      Plus Mariah did 150 Million with 7 albums in the 90’s. Do the math..

    • Grump July 21, 2014

      Also AIWFCIY IS 12 MILLION AND COUNTING…

  39. vee July 21, 2014

    I love Mariah. Everybody does. But these bandwagon Rihanna fans are trying it. They leave me with no choice but to state my facts.

    • Grump July 21, 2014

      Inaccuracy, delusion and deceit. No facts here.

  40. vee July 21, 2014

    140 Million records is ONLY her solo career (5 albums). No DC SALES added.
    Please do your research before you speak!

    • Grump July 21, 2014

      YOU NEED TO DO YOUR RESEARCH YOU F****** FRAUD. HEROLO IS 75 – 80 MILLION, DC IS 60 – 65 MILLION = 140 MILLION. I CAN SEE WHY YOU THINK YOU’RE CORRECT BECAUSE OF ALL THE DELUSION ON THIS SITE BUT FACTS ARE FACTS. HER ALBUMS SUM UP TO 33 MILLION, YOU WANT TO TELL ME HER SINGLES ARE OVER 110 MILLION WITH ONLY 5 NUMBER ONES? LOL THAT DON’T EVEN SOUND RIGHT…

      • vee July 21, 2014

        Lmaoo!!! Did you use Wikipedia?? I can’t speak with you then. *SCREAMS*

      • Knowles Carter July 21, 2014

        Why hasn’t Mariah’s album sold 100k?

      • grump July 21, 2014

        Like every other publication, wikipedia has citations which every educated person knows are the best research publications to use. Now I don’t have time to reserch beyonce sales as I’m too busy getting my economics degree but you are not going to tell me Beyonce has sold more than 140 million records. Why isnt she the bestselling artist of the soundscan era? Why is there no diamond album yet? Why does she have only 5 #1’s in the USA. Get out your delusional asses and speak the truth. Please.

      • Teacher July 22, 2014

    LOVEBIRD, GET YOU YO ASS ON TWITTER B**** LMAOOO. How you gonna deactivate like that???

  43. Knowles Carter July 21, 2014

    SMH! The delusional lambs strike again! Nobody is worried about Mariah, sans her catastrophic record sales. She dresses like a 15 year old s***, she can’t sing anymore and her music is stale and repetitive. Beyoncé is simply that b****. Mariah knows because she already bowed down. Thank you!

  44. grump July 21, 2014

    Why is there so much inflation of sales on this site 🙁

    • Teacher July 22, 2014

      Because Beyoncé’s hype can’t be backed up w her stats!

  45. Skyfall July 21, 2014

    Receipts of Beyonce selling over 100 million records (solo). Let alone 140 million that mean she would of had to sell a hell of a lot of singles since her album sales are 35+ world wide

    And single ladies has not sold over 10 million.

    We Belong Together – 5 million+
    All I Want For Xmas – 12-14 million+

    90Mill singles + 33Mill Albums= 123,000,000 records sold WW.

    Note: these are without adding her soundtracks and video sales and other singles that sold less than 500k. If you add everything together she’s sold 140M records in her SOLO career. And actually she just hit that 140M mark last week. Just saying :).

    • Skyfall July 21, 2014

      I need receipts of where you got this from and I’ll give it to you.
      But some of these numbers I believe are shipments instead if actual sales.

      • vee July 21, 2014

        I just gave you receipts! And you’re still on denial. SMH. Are they paying you to hate on her sales? Get over it! It’s not that serious. Congratulate and move along. It’s not cute… N no these are not shipments, they are all actual sales.

        In 2010, MTV stated during one article about the “I Am.. “world tour that Beyonce had sold 13pMillion records in her solo career.

      • vee July 21, 2014

        130M records.

    • grump July 21, 2014

      Exactly what skyfall said. Instead of YOUR numbers, where are the links to single worldwide sales? Lol APPARENTLY Beyonce has sold more singles than Katy Perry and Rihanna. Lies.

      • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

        He provided the sources tho. And beyonce has had a longer career than them + the only singles that katy and rihanna sell are their actual singles. Beyonce can sell other tracks on her albums

  47. Skyfall July 21, 2014

    Lady Gaga sold over 140 million records in 4 years.

    • vee July 21, 2014

      Oh Good for her! She’s talented 😀

    • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

      What are Adele’s numbers? I’m not being shady, I swear.

  48. vee July 21, 2014

    And my source come from iFPI, MTV, Billboard and ‘@Beyoncestats’ . Wikipedia is the same site that had her at 118Mill weeks before they changed it to 75M. Plus, they [Wikipedia] said that “IASF” sold over 8Mil WW when it actually sold only 7 Mill WW according to BB. That site is NOT reliable. Get educated friends. It’s open for evrerybody to edit. Even I once edited some info on Wiki one day just for fun, without providing a source. This is NO LIE. I swear to God.

    • LB July 21, 2014

      Looks like Lorde will start outselling her.

  49. LB July 21, 2014

    I’m sorry; when I look at Mariah all I’m seeing is DIAMOND ALBUMS, 18 #1s, REAL WRITING AND PRODUCING CREDITS and a TIMELESS LEGACY.

    Mariah sat on her ass and was making REAL MONEY whilst Whitney, Janet, Madonna, Celine were jumping up and down like SLAVES trying to match her success.

    FACT, Beyonce cannot sell her old albums anymore; no one is lining up to buy those boring nonsensical generic catalogs ala Dangerously a HO, Plagiarize Day, I am…Rihanna Copycat, 4closure and Rihanna (Beyonce); but people are still lining up to buy Butterfly, Mariah Carey, Music Box, Daydream, Rainbow and The Emancipation of Mimi plus her Xmas album.

    20 years from now; Mariah will still be seated on her ass and shitting out coins whilst Beyonce will have to book a venue every time Blue needs some field trip money after Beyonce cleans her out from the divorce (she too dumb to read, she won’t be able to read the divorce papers).

    • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

      You’re so biased lmao

    • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

      Renaming albums to drag makes you look extra pressed btw

    • Teacher July 22, 2014

      Yasssss @ I am…Rihanna copycat and RIHANNA
      Nothing but TRUTH!

  50. LB July 21, 2014

    Dangerously a HO (Beyonce at her peak) 4 million

    The Emancipation of Mimi (YEARS into her career) 7 million; plus songs SHE HAS WRITTEN AND PRODUCED ALL BY HERSELF FROM START TO FINISH. PLUS A MAJOR HIT; something Beyonce has been unable to get in 7 years LMAO.

    • vee July 21, 2014

      Good for MiMi! <3. We dont hate. We just don't like when our fave is discredited for her hard work.
      That's all 🙂

  51. LB July 21, 2014

    And don’t forget Mariah’s Older HITS like One sweet day, vision of love, My all, Honey, that xmas song…etc still get heavy rotation on radio; Beyonce’s old stolen garbage is paid dust LMAO.

    • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

      Heavy airplay on adult contemporary. They would never get played on a top 40, but beyonce’s old stuff does. Heard crazy in live te other day. That’s a classic

      • LB July 21, 2014

        Just crazy in love? LMAO

        What about her other songs? Mariah’s other songs she wrote all by herself get played.

      • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

        They never get played. Only on ac. Stop the lies. Single ladies, if I were a boy, irreplaceable, Bonnie and Clyde also get played.

      • LB July 21, 2014

        Gurl stop lying; they don’t get played and you know it.

        Crazy in love I can believe, but those other songs you’ve mentioned? Bye Cheryl.

      • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

        Are you kidding? Those are all mega hits babe. Mariah’s sound is too dated for mainstream radio plus she’s too old. She doesn’t even get played now, so why would her old stuff?

      • LB July 21, 2014

        SCREAMING; Mariah probably gets more radio spins than Beyonce’s OLD stuff.

        Major hits? where? Mariah has got 18 #1s, how many does Beyonce have?

      • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

        What f****** mariah hit gets played to top 40?!?! They will NEVER play her. She’s too old! Her audience is in their 30s now!! It doesn’t matter how many number 1s she has. The Beatles have more and they’re not played. What kind of logic?!

      • LB July 21, 2014

        She’s too old! Her audience is in their 30s now!!

        SCREAMS, wasn’t Beautiful slaying the charts? Too old my ass.

      • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

        Slaying what chart? Lmao!!! A peak of 15 on the hot 100 is a slay? Did it even chart on radio charts? Death!! She doesn’t get played anymore. Beautiful only got played because of her clear channel deal LOL

      • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

        B**** show me charted higher. Death!!

    • Knowles Carter July 21, 2014

      Only mariah song I hear is AIWFCIY in December stop lying lmao

    • Teacher July 22, 2014

      We Belong Together says hi!

      • ontherun July 22, 2014

        Not in 2014 it doesn’t

  52. vee July 21, 2014

    The thing y’all don’t know is Beyonce don’t just sell her “Singles”. Other songs off her albums actually sell as well.

    • LB July 21, 2014

      Like XO, Partition and pretty hurts? Or like I was here, and those other forgettable 4lops from 4closure?

      • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

        But he just provided the receipts above. What else has katy sold off of prism? Rihanna off of unapologetic?

      • LB July 21, 2014

        Love song (zero promo)
        Jump (zero promo)
        right now (zero promo)
        pour it up (was selling before it was promoted)

        And those did well in global markets. Overall if we are counting TOTAL RECORD SALES; Unapologetic >>>> Rihanna (Beyonce).

        Don’t forget Rihanna has got 3 1 million selling albums in the UK; more than Cheryl’s 1ish.

      • vee July 21, 2014

        If you noticed, “Pretty Hurts” is NOT on the list of singles sales I provided, because it flopped. It did not sell S*** (yet). Lol

      • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

        Are you missing the whole point? Beyonce sells songs that aren’t singles. Rihanna and katy don’t. The promo is irrelevant because they’re NOT singles.

      • LB July 21, 2014

        And what songs are those? I’ll wait.

      • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

        Look at the above receipts and stop acting ignorant.

      • LB July 21, 2014

        LOL, every single one of those songs listed was released as a single. Don’t you know Beyonce releases 385483434 singles per era; just look at B’Day, IASF and 4.

      • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

        For example, 1+1 was not a single. It was a promotional single. Walking on air was similarly a promotional single for prism and has sold less than a fifth of 1+1. Stop self dragging babe.

      • LB July 21, 2014

        Ya, and 1+1 was performed on American Idol when they had the one of the biggest ratings of their career with a viewership of slightly 30 million; whilst Walking on air was performed on SNL with much much less viewership.

      • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

        Why are you not understanding anything about this post? Stop self dragging. They weren’t singles! You said they were, they weren’t. And beyonce sold more than katy in that instance.

      • LB July 21, 2014

        Beyonce only sold more because she performed the song at the American idol finale which had an audience of 30 million that night; it would be embarrassing if she sold less just like it is embarrassing that drunk in love can only go platinum after a Grammy’s performance.

        Katy Payola performed walking on air on SNL, the audience for SNL is much smaller. Of course Katy Payola will sell less.

      • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

        To prove that point irrelevant, rihanna performed California king bed on idol that same season and it didn’t chart. Also, Sam smith performed stay with me on snl this year and it vaulted into the top 10. The audience doesn’t guarantee anything. The fact, and point of this post, is that beyonce sells more album tracks than katy and rih.

      • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

        And the whole f****** point is that these are songs that don’t get promo. Jesus.

    • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

      Exactly! Rihanna and katy only sell their singles.

  53. vee July 21, 2014

    @LB. You’re right tho! I’m not even gonna contradict you. Unapologetic has sold more records overall than “4” which sold about 12Mil records that era.

    • Teacher July 22, 2014

      12M? How? The sold 3M WW and ALL the singles flopped! Now how’d you come up w 12M?

  54. vee July 21, 2014

    @Cheryl boo. You won’t get anywhere arguing with the haters. LOL. Let them seethe!

    • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

      I’m trying babe. Idk why they always have to shade bey! Of course mariah has sold more! And rihanna is very successful.

      • vee July 21, 2014

        Exactly! Nobody is discrediting them! Rihanna is very successful, and Mariah is a Legend. Point blank. But they just all happen to hate on queen Bey because she’s the baddest b**** in the game rn! SMH. The hive really remain the bigger persons all the time.

  55. Grump July 21, 2014

    DELUSION.

  56. LB July 21, 2014

    And who hasn’t Mariah clocked just by seating on her ass. Note that every other b**** in the industry has had to tour 61682368413 times to achieve a fraction of what Mariah did sipping Champagne.

    Biggest selling artist of the Soundscan era EVER. Save me with those untracked Madonna receipts from BEFORE the soundscan era; the ho was struggling all through the 90s.

    Mariah’s networth is 510 million from her music alone, no tours, no nothing; just sitting in the studio and making magic.

    Celine, Janet, Whitney, Madonna have all been on 546468434 and Mariah CLOCKED them effortlessly. Madonna is only up there because she is a pre-historic dinosaur.

  57. Grump July 21, 2014

    Seethe over what? Sales that don’t gain me anything. OKAY. I’m just stating what I see.

    • vee July 21, 2014

      What you see isn’t necessarily what’s reality. ->>>> sit

  58. vee July 21, 2014

    But explain why CIL, Irreplaceable and SL are on the list of rolling stones best 500 songs of the 2000’s while Mariah only has 1 on the list? CIL was #2 on that list.
    Only the other day O heard “Irreplaceable ” on the radio! Stop with the lies @LB
    Beyonces songs are
    iconic and are still getting played on radio.

  59. CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

    Why is the lb so pressed? LMAO. Madonna > mariah

  60. CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

    15 years vs 30 years lmao

  61. LB July 21, 2014

    In what way is Madonna > Mariah??

    Madonna has got 3+ $100 million tours vs Mariah’s ZERO tours and there’s only a difference of $100 million approx in their networth.

    That means Madonna had to work like a donkey to “slightly” outdo Mariah who just sat on her ass.

    • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

      15 years vs 30 years lol. That’s all I have to say. Mariah’s career died in 2005.

  62. vee July 21, 2014

    LB is highly pressed right now. LMAOO! That’s what we do !
    @Cheryl high 5 babe!

  63. LB July 21, 2014

    “15 years vs 30 years lol.”

    Is this supposed to be a drag?

    Mariah $34 million avg/year
    Madonna $23 million avg/year

    Mariah is better.

    • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

      Her career literally dies after TEOM lol. She has more songwriting credits, that’s it! DEATH. Who’s the queen of pop?

      • LB July 21, 2014

        She has an unmatched discography. Biggest star of the soundscan era, sold more albums than Madonna can ever; has got more than 1 diamond certified album, 18 #1s and an unmatched TIMELESS discography that people will listen to for ages and ages to come.

      • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

        Those are unverifiable receipts! You can’t prove that she sold more albums than Madonna. Every “fact” that you listed is subjective. She’s a legend but that’s all.

      • LB July 21, 2014

        Mariah Carey is the biggest artist of the soundscan era; that alone proves she sold more albums than Madonna.

      • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

        What is your logic? Lmao! The SS era that conveniently started the same year that Mariah’s career did? Death!!

  64. vee July 21, 2014

    Agreed! Mariah Career really went downhill from 2008. Madonna is still selling out stadiums and breaking records after 30years in the game! That’s a bad b****! Mariah can’t even tour nowadays because nobody cares about her old ass anymore. She’s still a great singer tho, can’t take that from her.
    But Madonna> Mimi (career wise)

    • IStanForYourFav July 22, 2014

      Madonna went downhill in 1990/1991, came back in 1998, and fell again after 2004 However she does have touring.

  65. Navy Nick July 21, 2014

    The album is not bad, she out out the wrong singles…BUT, I will say: she needs to not be so stuff in stage, she can be quite the bore Live.

  66. LB July 21, 2014

    “Mariah can’t even tour nowadays because nobody cares about her old ass anymore.”

    But when has Mariah gone on a world tour?

    Besides, Mariah’s Sydney’s All Phones Arena show was sold out in four minutes; and that was just in 2013.

    Get this, Mariah sat on her ass and accumulated $510 million; now that is a bad b****. If you are getting paid whilst getting a manicure vs fighting with Gagag on a PR campaign to sell out dates; the one getting a manicure and getting paid from her music is the bad b****.

    • vee July 21, 2014

      No that’s fuckinnnng apathy! We only respect people who work for thwir bread! This is why we Stan for the Queen Bey cause she WORKED HER ASS OFF ALL HER TEENAGE YEARS TO GET TO WHERE SHE IS NOW. I don’t respect people who F*** their way to the top or just sit their fat asses while money is raining over them. Life is not about that.

      This is why I love Bey even more, because she’s a role model cause EVERYTHING SHE HAD, SHE HAS EARNED THEM!!

      • IStanForYourFav July 22, 2014

        That’s crazy. Everyone works hard to retire. You should be able to live your life and just sit back and look back at your career. Didn’t B take a year off to reflect? Everyone needs a vacay. They didn’t make social security for no reason lol

  67. LB July 21, 2014

    Fact remains Madonna, Beyonce, Celine, Whitney, Cher, Pattie, Aretha, [insert any female artist here] are ALL Mariah Carey’s lessors.

    There will never be any female artist that will outdo her, never.
    – 3 Diamond albums
    – 18 #1s
    – Biggest artist of the soundscan era
    – Writes and produces her own music from start to finish
    – Superior vocal ability.
    – etc

    • CherylSoldierr July 21, 2014

      None of these ladies have ever done 56k in the first week, less than 100k after 2 months. Death

    • vee July 21, 2014

      The decline tho. Going from selling Diamond albums to doing 50k is just pathetic! Not of those ladies you’ve listed above have done as low as 50k. Beyonce at least is consistent. Kii

      • Stephy July 22, 2014

        Aretha, Patti has sold 50K & BELOW.. Patti has multiple flop albums. Infact, her entire career COMMERICALLY was a flop… So, bye! Vee you are pressed-t

  68. Theman July 21, 2014

    MARIAH > ANY OTHER FEMALE !!!!

  69. vee July 21, 2014

    I’d rather be consistent than have a humongous decline. From 10Mm to less than 100k Lmaooo!!! The self drag

    • Stephy July 22, 2014

      Nope, the self drag is you comparing someone with 14 studio albums with someone with only 5 albums. BYE

    What pleasure do y’all get arguing over people’s receipts? I don’t even get it. This generation is doomed..

    • vee July 21, 2014

      But you started it…

      • Grump July 22, 2014

        I didn’t argue with you. I just corrected your inflated sales. Mind you you’re still here arguing.

  71. IStanForYourFav July 22, 2014

    Sam is getting a check tonight!! lol

    Anyway, Madonna, Mariah, Janet, Whitney, and Celine (plus the icons before them) will never be able to be certified because they are all before SoundScan as well as their rules for charting I.E. Breakdown can’t chat because Billboard said so, and etc. means they will never get their correct sales honestly. Madonna is the def the highest selling seller even though her career is so/so excluding the fact that she is able to tour. That actually is the only thing she has on any artist in general. If artists like MC sold over 150 certified their first 7/8 albums, it is no telling how many she sold honestly by now if everything was able to be certified. Honestly, I see her at like 215-230 mil. 250 mil sounds like pure inflation. This applies to all of them. Especially Janet. 100 mil? Really? She’s at least at 150 mil. As for music, that’s purely taste. However the fact these ladies are still around 25+ years later making music regardless of how it sells, just shows they have stood the test of time.

    I think is great that she wants to tour, especially for her fans, as for Madonna, as always there is misinformation about everything she does or they just simply ignore the facts to their convenience, she didn’t gave away her album for free:

    First of all the tickets needed to be over $150, the purchaser was then sent a download code and IF (IF is a choice) they wanted to album they were able to download it using that close on a sport website on a separate transaction – The sales are NOT inflated because those people WANTED the album, they went out of their way to purchase it. Billboard has already cleared that up for people like you, that don’t get it, here:
    http://www.billboard.com/biz/articles/news/1098093/editors-note-what-role-did-bundling-and-exclusives-play-in-madonna-and
    On top of that, the bundling was only available in North America, MDNA’s CONFIRMED, REAL, LEGITIMATE, OFFICIAL FIGURE is 359,000 copies sold in its first week. There’s no arguing over this.

    Bundling her CD with her concert tickets was a perfectly LEGITIMATE and recognized way to sell the album. It is OFFICIALLY recognized and accepted by SoundScan and Billboard. It’s legitimate.

    Another thing is that you can’t compare Madonna’s underperformance in the 90’s to anyone because she was doing controversial things in a time when it was tabue, she was crucified for it, only her album sales suffered a decline but the woman was more popular than ever, no other musical act has been discussed in talk shows late at night all through the world like her, there were tv specials dedicated to the antichrist Madonna, discussing how bad to society she was, do you homework kids! before you come for Madonna or anyone as big as her which clearly Mariah isn’t.

    • Stephy July 22, 2014

      Oh Blondie, nice comment! Madonna is the Queen.

  73. Ben July 22, 2014

    do y’all only like cds that sell like crazy? this is not criteria whether the albums is good or not. i’m not even a fan but some people on here love to exaggerate. and i dont think she cares too much

  74. Theman July 22, 2014

    Talent wise/Hits/Soundscan Mariah is bigger than Madonna.. Madonna is huge when it comes to touring & controversy. But the shock shtick is played..

    • Suicide Blonde July 22, 2014

      Talent wise, mmm, vocals, yes!, Mariah wins hands down, artistry, Madonna by default, William Orbit recently said: [I often take full credits (given by people) for Ray of Light but both, Madonna and I, create Ray of Light], songwriting, that depends on what topic you are interesting, Mariah’s lyrics often deals with love, heartbroken, etc, ect, Madonna’s lyrics focus mainly on religion, politic, gender, sexuality, s**, ect, ect, hits, Mariah has more #1 in the USA ONLY, worldwide Madonna has more collected #1 hits than any other artist, she was also named most successful solo artist on the billboard hot 100 ONLY behind the Beatles, the most successful solo artist in the history of American singles chart, folks don’t try with Madonna, the woman have receipts for life to back it up to all the things her detractors claim, So….

      • Stephy July 22, 2014

        The only reason Mariah achieved alot of those number 1 hits in USA was because of Payola. R&B artist NEVER really chart on the POP charts. But, Mariah did have strong single sales tho. Mariah was promoted as a POP act but in actuality she was an R&B singer. R&B singers DO NOT sell nor get number 1 hits worldwide that often. I think Mariah still did good with album sales throughout the 90s tho.

      • Suicide Blonde July 22, 2014

        Mariah did had some #1 hits without payola but Tommy did the rest.

  75. Stephy July 22, 2014

    Lovebird, you clocked EVERYONES tea on this post.
    .
    Also, we miss you on Twitter! Why you just pack your shitt up and leave us without a notice like dat boo? Love you

  76. Lolz July 22, 2014

    Lol i love this Cheryl Soldier person. And i cant with Bi Polar bird.

  77. Stephy July 22, 2014

    R&B SINGERS RARELY GET NUMBER 1 HITS OUTSIDE OF AMERICA! I NEVER UNDERSTOOD WHY MARIAH & MADONNA ARE COMPARED TO EACH OTHER IN TERMS OF SUCCESS OR ARTISTRY…
    .
    One is a POP star. The other is simply a R&B singer/songwriter. It makes sense why Madonna would have more success worldwide. European markets most of the time DO NOT use nor listen to R&B music… Rihanna is NOT R&B she is POP/DANCE (which is HUGE worldwide) 85% of the time.

    • Suicide Blonde July 22, 2014

      You’re right Pop is a worldwide phenomenon while R&B is a USA thing, used mostly by African Americans, white people in the Us, are more into Pop, Rock and country.

  78. Stephy July 22, 2014

    That “VEE” bitxh is annoying…

  79. Michael D’Jôn Mason July 22, 2014

    I just want to say that Mariah is taking the same steps she took when “Memoirs” hit and flopped. BYE Felicia, we KNOW you are not going on tour or have any real desire to support your flip-flopped album. I love Mariah, I don’t like her personality, at all, but I am a big fan of her music and acting you cannot deny real talent…However, Felicia, take time off from singing and focus on acting and writing as these arenas are what most of us fans are checking for. I just cannot stand to see her ass prancing around in these little ass dresses and gloves and carrying on. Please find another realm to conquer Mimi, your time as a top selling performer are null and void.

  80. Theman July 22, 2014

    Lmaooooooo Madonna cannot sing, nor dance. Her production and gimmicks carried her.. Talking about politics, using shock value & trying to push buttons is not talent.. William Orbit was the main force behind “Ray Of Light”. Mariah talks about a whole host of issues, love, heartbreak, happiness, inspiration, courage, she’s blended and dabbled into more genres than Madonna. Mariah is also an actual singer songwriter. She’s practically bigger than Madonna in the US & ASIA !! Europe caters to dance pop, that is Madonna’s bread and butter.. On sheer talent MARIAH >>>> …… Madonna if stripped down to just a mic is….. Lol…. She isn’t a prolific songwriter.. Alot of producers give artists credit whom haven’t made many contributions to the actual music, rather it’s that pull in the industry that draws producers to give certain artists credit.. Mariah is an R&b/Pop artist not just an r&b artist. A.Keys is more of an r&b artist. That payola crap is for the birds. A lot of labels do things for their artist to succeed.. Mariah was just working her a** off.. Moreover, of course Madonna had to talk about a plethora of topics, because she wasn’t as talented as the other ladies. She wasn’t going to just stand & sing, or freestyle & dance..

    • Sean July 22, 2014

      Why do you lambs all insist you have to be a great soul singer to be a great artist? Last time I checked the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Diana Ross, Bille Holiday, Dolly Parton, Prince, David Bowie etc aren’t “Technically” great singers but great artists. Madonna falls into that category. Mariah is one of the greatest voices ever ( after Whitney and Aretha) but as an artist she is always behind Madonna

    I´m so damn glad EVERYBODY put Sam in his place once more! LOL Why can´t you write these pathetic essays for JLo? Ciara? Kelly Rowland? etc etc LOL or even better: for all the BIG names (not like those lessers I just mentioned) that were around when Mariah debuted? You know the big ones, the ones who have been no where to be seen for years and years? Yeah, that´s right, Mariah is one of the few who survives decades. So don´t be so pathetic please.
