Mariah Carey Inks New Deal Ahead Of European Tour

‘Mine Again’ performer Mariah Carey has signed a brand new deal that’s set to change the the trajectory of her career this year.

Details below…

Billboard reports:

The United Talent Agency will represent the Grammy winner across all areas, including music, touring, film, television, digital, licensing and endorsements. Carey is currently maintaining a Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, where #1 to Infinity began this May and will run beyond next February. In December she will return to New York City for a series of Christmas concerts before embarking on a European tour in the spring, which UTA will put together. It will be her first tour in that continent in 13 years.

The company’s chairman Jim Berkus had this to say about the entertainer:

Mariah is one of the greatest artists of this or any generation.She is a true multi-talent, and we’re thrilled to help her continue to push every creative boundary.

The deal’s details sound promising but will it be enough to revive the public’s interest in the entertainer?

For, recent years have seen her become a cold and distant caricature of what she once was and age herself with a personality that has no place in a time where being  cool, calm and stripped back have seen Janet, Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez turn the hands of time and slice a decade from their perceived ages.

Put simply, the 49-year-old Janet Jackson fronts a younger, fresher and far more exciting brand than the 45-year-old Mariah who makes the mistake of equating youth with cleavage, up and coming rappers and the magicians she employs to photoshop her promotional artwork.

How I’d solve her problem?

A ‘Behind the Music’ style documentary that humanises her by reminding the general public of her journey to the top and how the discrimination she faced as a biracial child growing up in the 70s fuelled her to pen material that would inspire millions who’d faced adversity in their own lives.

Oh…and fire whoever told her she needs struggling rappers to build a hit song.

Your thoughts?

    Yassss!!! Janet! ….oh and I’m I first? Just like boo. Eat it basics.

    • DEBRA August 1, 2015

      FADED was her hit and she paid it dust and promoted infinity which was horrible; FADED and THIRSTY was her hits and she faded into the background

      • MUSICHEAD August 1, 2015

        Unfortunately neither of those songs would have done well against the competition on the radio last year. Neither song has a mass appeal to crossover yo pop radio.

        Faded would have done well at urban with a feature from a current and successful rapper. That’s about it.

  2. glenchimi August 1, 2015

    same like Madonna do.

    when the album flop hard but labels still need money

    then ask singer’s like ‘how about Europe tour or asia tour ?’

        When has Ciara ever outsold her? All Mariah’s albums sold more than Ciara’s albums THIS decade. So, hush.

    LOL David I can’t stand your biased ass but you got a point there

  12. lol August 1, 2015

    I’d love to hear a remix type album of her past hits even the ones that were not #1, kinda like something similar to what Barbara did last year

  13. OMG Logic!!! August 1, 2015

    DEATH @ the reach of ThatDeludedJuice. NO ONE is checking for Janet or her “calm, cool” attitude. When was the last time Janet had a hit? No seriously, does anyone remember because I know I don’t.

    • SCALPING THOTS August 2, 2015

      JANET HASN’T HAD HITS IN THIS NEW GENERATION, BUT AT LEAST SHE DOES HAVE AN EXCUSE. MARIAH ON THE OTHER HAND JUST DRIED UP AFTER CRAMMING DOWN OUR THROATS A SERIES OF UNFORGETTABLE, MICROWAVABLE PRODUCTS. RAINBOW, GLITTER, E=MC2, MEMIORS, CHARMBRACELET, ME.I.AM.MAN-RIAH MADE NO IMPACT. ALTHO SHE’S ALWAYS OUT, SHE HAS NO TOP 10’S THIS DECADE. HER LEECHING OFF MIGUEL DIDN’T EVEN WORK. NO DISCOUNTS. NO PAYOLA. NO HITS. MARIAH HASN’T BEEN INTERESTING IN YEARS. PEOPLE ONLY LIKED HER MINNIE RIPERTON HIGH NOTES IN THE BEGINNING, BUT QUICKLY REALIZED SHE LACKED ARTISTRY & STAGE PRESENCE. SHE HAS THE MOST HITS ON BILLBOARD, BUT NONE OF THEM ARE ICONIC LIKE I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU, THRILLER OR VOGUE. THAT’S WHY THE SHEEP, AS WELL AS MARIAH HATE ALL THE OTHER WOMEN THAT COMPETED WITH MARIAH. THEY’RE MAD CUZ BARBRA, CELINE & TONI CAN STILL SING WAY BETTER THAN MARIAH TODAY. MADONNA, JANET, SADE, MARY & JLO SEEM TO BE 10 YEARS YOUNGER & MORE YOUTHFUL THAN MARIAH. SHE CAN’T EVEN WALK IN HEELS. THIS IS WHY THE SHEEP ALWAYS BRING UP MARIAH’S WRITING ABILITY, IT’S THE ONLY THING SHE EVER DID WELL. EVEN BEY & RIHANNA HAVE SO MANY THINGS OVER MARIAH. MARIAH’S AN AWKWARD MESS ON STAGE & IN HER VIDEOS, ALWAYS HAVE BEEN & ALWAYS WILL BE. LAMBS KNOW THE TRUTH & THAT’S WHY THEY HATE IT WHEN IT’S BEING TOLD.

  14. OMG Logic!!! August 1, 2015

    Tired of the weak a55 shade you haters keep throwing at the Queen. The artwork for Elusive Chanteuse was shot when she looked like this:

      • Muscle Tech/Nyc August 1, 2015

        Exactly, but you know how most hateful people are.

  15. Stephy. August 1, 2015

    Ok, I love Janet. But, y’all are so delusional when it comes to her stance in the industry RIGHT NOW (or the past 13 YEARS). David, for someone so “interesting” looking… You sure do love throwing shade.
    .
    .
    AnTEAways, Mariah is getting that money. She haven’t toured Europe since 2006 (I believe). So, this will be good for her stans there. She’s already made 5+ million dollars from her Vegas shows (that just ended). Hopefully, there’s a great residency in Europe/UK she can get. Good-luck, MC. Oh, and please keep that “song” you making with Justina & Khloe KarTRASHian’s left overs…

    • Salome August 1, 2015

      Sweetheart you are right on, David is acting like Mariah isn’t selling anymore when she clearly is. He needs to be worried about his fave Rita flip flopping all around the world with Posion’s sales since it isn’t even in the UK charts anymore.

      But I do have stop you one point. He isn’t “interesting” looking, he’s cute so I don’t want you to act like he isn’t good looking when he clearly is.

    • SCALPING THOTS August 2, 2015

      WHEN WILL YA’LL LAMBS REALIZE THAT MARIAH DOESN’T SELL ANYMORE. SHE’S IN DESPERATE NEED OF RETIREMENT. TRIUMPHANT, YOU’RE MINE, ART OF LETTING GO, INFINITY, ANGELS CRY WITH NE-YO, UP OUT MY FACE WITH NICKI, H.A.T.E.U ARE ALL

      F

      L

      O

      P

      S

      THESE SONGS ALL PEAKED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CHARTS. YET MARIAH’S NEVER TAKE A BREAK FORMULA CONTINUES TO FAIL HER TODAY. IT ONLY WORKED FOR HER 1990 – 1997. SHE HAD SUCCESS FOR A DECADE AND A HALF WITH HER COMEBACK MIMI ERA & NOW SHE’S DONE. MOST OF HER PEERS CONQUERED 3 OR MORE.

  16. OMG Logic!!! August 1, 2015

    I wonder if Queen Mariah should have taken David’s advice before giving the Camel his first #1 with Heartbreaker? I mean he had been around for awhile and couldn’t break into the mainstream. Sounds like a struggling rapper to me.

  17. Stephy. August 1, 2015

    Put simply, the 49-year-old Janet Jackson fronts a younger, fresher and far more exciting brand than the 45-year-old Mariah
    —–
    Is this the reason as to why Miss Jackson is no where to be seen on the charts top 10 for the last decade & some change? Also, J HO only has youthful beauty on her side. Musically, she’s a bigger FLOP than Mariah. Beyonce is NO WHERE NEAR these women in age… So, stop it DAVID. Yo interesting looking ass needs to stop giving advice to someone that could buy your entire INTERESTING looking existence. Bye Girl.

    • Miss U Muchos August 1, 2015

      Don’t come for Miss Janet sweetie, PLEASE don’t come for Miss Janet when she’s proved that she’s able to sell tickets to a tour even without a single that’s selling. You need to remember what happened the last time Mariah tried to tour and how quick the plug was pulled on that.
      And I looked for David’s picture and you are an absolute kiii for calling him interesting because you know can’t say he’s ugly. He’s no Rob Evans but he is handsome. You wanna come for Janet and people’s looks but hide behind somebody else’s picture.

      SHOW YOURSELF HUNTY.

      • #L4L August 1, 2015

        WRONG! The last tour MC did sips out 5 consecutive nights making history for the first western artist to do so. The last time J did a tour, she canceled bc of “migraines” but the tour people & Wendy Williams clocked for her low ticket sales.

  18. Monica Stan August 1, 2015

    Mariah needs to just retire while she still has a gram of dignity left

    • FU*K MO August 1, 2015

      Monogram should hv retired back n 98.

      MoNIGGA needs to retire … Oh wait, the bitxh never really had a career to retire from. Bye Brandy/MoniWHO stan

        Whats Murdernica??? I dont get it…

      • Monica Stan August 1, 2015

        Say what you want about mo but she can still sing and top the charts. Stfu

  19. Gee August 1, 2015

    David can you please stop with the bias b******* because every woman you named in this post is in some sort of struggle other than Beyoncé. Janet released a song no one in mainstream cares about even with J.Cole hopping on the song. As for Jlo she is just hopping on anything hoping for it to pop. Mariah while she maybe beyond her golden years she is still winning her Vegas residency has been very successful despite everyone screaming it was going to fail. While I will agree I am over MC renting rappers for AirPlay, but it is my choice to support the movement or not.

  20. Yep August 1, 2015

    TGJ always does the most when talking negative about MC.

  21. JOHNVIDAL August 1, 2015

    So David also does like Sam now??? Again another essay giving Mariah Carey advise??? LMAO
    And especially giving two examples of what she should do… examples like Janet Jackson and Jennifer Lopez??????? Mariah Carey has been more successful than both of them combined for the last 15 years. I mean, come on now!!! 🙂

    • Monica Stan August 1, 2015

      But Mariah’s beached whale ass canNOT sing and hasn’t been able to since 2000. And her corny music has been irrelevant since 2006.

      • #L4L August 1, 2015

        B**** STFU! Infinity has charted higher than EVERYTHING Mo has done since 03. Mariah can still sing! If you don’t want to take the time to see the truth, then STFU and continue to troll w/ your no life having ass. Monica ain’t no legend. She ain’t s*** but a wife to a cheating big d*** man who might be warming the bench with his ass cheeks that trannies f***.

    • #L4L August 1, 2015

      You seem to beable to give Mariah unsolicited advice about how to slay, but pull the “my fav is a legend & already proved herself” card when someone tells Chunktina how to ‘slay’. You know the thing she USED to do before 2009.

  26. #1lamb August 1, 2015

    First of all David, Mariah doesn’t need to remind people of her bi racial up bringing. That’s something’s she’s always discussed and if folks don’t know it by now, then…..
    Also, she has just wrapped a successful run at Vegas and the voice was sounding well, so why the negative write up? Is your blog that desperate for hits?

    • Terny August 2, 2015

      Yea.. They’re tht desperate for hits.. They always conjure up some incoherent sh*t bout her on slow days…

  27. Barb-wire August 1, 2015

    Mimi don’t need no advice from a struggling employee from a flop blog David. Know your place, stealing bittch.

    • I love David August 1, 2015

      A Nicki Stan would know all about struggling

  28. Cough Cough August 1, 2015

    Janet’s last hit single and album, like foreal FOREAL was “All for you” in 2001. And she has been living off just touring and releasing moderate to flop singles/albums, since then. Since then Mariah has had :Shake it off, WBT, don’t forget about us, touch my body, plus the first single from her latest album, beautiful was top 20….. There is no comparison between her and Janet and J.Lo isn’t even an after thought…. Mariah is just more successful and doesn’t have to tour if she doesn’t want to. Love Beyoncé but she’s not in this chat she’s still young and in her prime and slaying…. And Mariah still has more money than her too.

  29. BEY>RIH August 1, 2015

    I think Mariah needs that one r&b song that can crossover to mainstream audiences such as Dont Forget About Us or a full out pop record such as Touch My Body. #Beautiful was a great start (if im not mistaken it was Mariah’s most previous top 15 hit). The Elusive album is my 3rd fav mimi album behind EOM and Daydream… David is right when it comes to her working with C list rappers like French Montana and has beens like Justin Beiber. I personally would like to see a collab from her and Toni Braxton, or Beyonce, or another one with Mjb or possibly even Sam Smith.

  30. BEY>RIH August 1, 2015

    Also Mariah or her team make poor single choices.. I’ve always thought “Bye Bye” could’ve been her 19th #1 and “Thirsty” could’ve been an urban smash.

  31. MUSICHEAD August 1, 2015

    I agree 100% with this write up. Might I also suggest she find a fresh producer to collaborate with so that she can bring us that Always Be My Baby/Dreamlover/Fantasy sound again. I’d like to hear Mariah find her pop lane again and give urban a rest for a minute.

  32. #1lamb August 1, 2015

    While commenters and blog writers alike throw false information around and call it fact, I’ll just lay this right here and it reads:
    Mariah Carey is a legend in this music business, A list celebrity (flop sales and all) selling out more than half her shows in Vegas, traveling the world with a new BILLIONARE boyfriend, 550 million to her name, sales that surpass most of your faves, and a voice of a generation= unbothered by the basic bloggers and trolls. Revive a career? She’s f****** RICH! She’s fine. #careyON

  33. Career Ender August 1, 2015

    when monica and her maternity ward matted-red-wig releases her flop album and it trails around 30-50k 1st week . I’ll be here! !!

      Your fav lives for Monica. Remember that.

    • MUSICHEAD August 2, 2015

      Lmfaooooooo! Maternity ward matted red wig? I’m putting u in time out! Lol

  34. coolness August 1, 2015

    Mariah seems to be doing quite well. Her recent stint at Vegas was a success and she seems to be a in a good place with her personal life. David talking about Mariah needing to re-address her struggles of growing up biracial is beating a dead horse. Mariah BEEN discussed this a thousand times! Finally, the point about comparing her to J.Lo, Janet and Bey is just tacky. J.Lo has a way of diverting attention from her underperforming albums/singles because she has so many ventures outside music. As for Janet, lbr, her musical success took a sharp decline after 2001’s All for You which was the same year Mariah bombed with Glitter. Fast forward four years later and Mariah had one of – if not the greatest comeback all time with EOM. Janet sadly never recovered from 2004’s N*pplegate. Lastly? comparing Beyoncé, who is still pretty much in her prime as far as popularity goes, to an ageing diva like Mariah doesn’t make any sense at all. Why not bring up Madonna? Look, I have a lot of love for Bey, Janet, Mariah as artists and I stan for Jenny’s looks but this write-up reeks of bias.

    • SCALPING THOTS August 2, 2015

      LAMBS ALWAYS TEAR DOWN OTHER DIVAS. THEY ALWAYS WANNA BUILD UP MARIAH BY BRINGING SOMEONE DOWN. THEY HATE WHEN YOU EXPOSE THE BAD THO. IF MARIAH’S EVERYTHING HER STANS CLAIM SHE IS, SHE WOULDN’T BE IN THE PREDICAMENT SHE’S IN NOW. SHE’S A HIT CHASING, AGED DIVA – WANNA BE 20’S S** KITTEN, STIFF, BLAND,INSECURE BORE THAT ALWAYS WORRIES ABOUT ANOTHER DID UPSTAGING HER THE WAY NICKI DID ON IDOL.

  35. Oscar The Grouch August 1, 2015

    kiii @ David getting dragged. I think Mariah can still slay, she just needs to release some fire singles, and dress a bit more appropriately

  36. DOSSOME August 1, 2015

    Lmao,if that’s how you’ll solve “Mariah’s problem” then you are the dumbest career expert ever.I know It’s that time of the month and you guys have bills to pay and lube to purchase,so we’ll be charitable enough to give you the hits you need

    I can never understand how you people could disrespect legends like Mariah, Janet, Madonna and so forth. This generation of music lovers is something else.

  39. SCALPING THOTS August 2, 2015

    I CAN NEVER UNDERSTAND HOW THESE LAMBS BECOME SO HIGH & MIGHTY WHEN SOMEONE PUTS DOWN MARIAH, BUT WHEN LAMBS READ ALL THE OTHER WOMEN FOR FILTH IT’S CUTE. NOT ON MY WATCH. NOT WHEN I RECALL MS. CARRY’S MELTDOWN AFTER FLOPPING ON TRL, OR THAT TUMBLE DUE TO BEING DRUNK & SQUEEZING IN HEELS SHE HAD NO BUSINESS BEING IN. ONLY MS. CARRY CAN FALL STANDING STILL. TOMMY’S FORMER TEEN W**** WIFE NEVER HAD ANY REAL TOURING STATUS. MS. CARRY HAS MORE FLOP ALBUMS THAN ALL THE OTHER LEGENDS. ME.I.AM.MANRIAH’S 50K WAS SURPASSED BY CIARA AND KELLY ROWLAND. NEED I SAY MORE. ONLY CIARA’S NEW ALBUM CAME IN UNDER.
