    There have been times when I've liked her songs and was pretty okay with her, and there have been times when I've thought she was highly annoying and fake. Overall, at best she's "OK".

    The mere sight of that cow makes me itch. I can't stand her. She's worse than radon gas.

    Nope. She's so forumlaic and boring to me. Every now and then she's come out with a song that I BEGRUDGINGLY like, but overall I don't really care for her.

    Murphy’s Law: Whitney & Mariah… Sit Down

    It happens to us all. Sooner or later, we lose it. And the fall-off can be as unmerciful as a strung-out Eddie Kane struggling to keep it together on some nights-like-this-I-wish-that-raindrops-would-fa-ha-ha-ha-all *beep* Sometimes it takes a loving nudge or a rude push to jolt a little reality into an individual who doesn’t have the good sense to know when to exit the big stage. With that said, I will invoke the spirit of the Apollo Theater’s feared tap dancing hook man Sandman Sims and do what must be done: Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey—it’s time to retire. Your voices, once fine-tuned, praise-worthy instruments, are now shot to hell.

    Yes, we are well aware that you are two of the most acclaimed female vocalists in the history of pop music. We know that combined you have sold well over 300 million albums worldwide. Whitney, the-around-the-way-girl from East Orange, New Jersey blessed with angelic church-trained voice that propelled your self-titled 1985 release to become the biggest selling debut from a female act (24 million copies and still counting, bitches). Mariah, the mixed Long Island chick with the effortless five-octave range who wrote her own lyrics (gasp!) on a string of multi-platinum offerings starting in 1990—eventually eclipsing Elvis Presley for the most no. 1 singles on the Billboard charts with 18. But your slips are showing ladies.

    Seeing you both in your current cringe-inducing state gives me the same sick feeling I experienced as a youngin’ when I saw a heartbreaking, past-his-prime Muhammad Ali get pummeled by Larry Holmes or a geriatric Michael Jordan uniform getting his ankles broken by Allen Iverson. It just ain’t right. No, this is not petty ageism at work. If Eric Clapton is allowed to keep his blues rock-God pass at the grizzled age of 64 while making those annoying ass iPhone commercials, then the comparatively pubescent Whitney, 46, and Mariah, 39, should be able to sing until Tracy Morgan wins an Oscar. Unfortunately, two months has not even passed, and we have already seen proof that it’s time for you both—Ms. Houston and Mrs. Carey-Cannon—to go gently into that good night.

    Whitney…I get it. You are a survivor. You withstood much-deserved backlash after releasing some of the most soulless, MOR drivel this side of Susan Boyle (remember when you were booed at the Soul Train Awards in 1989?) You soldiered on and won back your black fans (I’m Your Baby Tonight, My Love Is Your Love) and then dropped the biggest selling soundtrack album in history of mankind (The Bodyguard). You got through your equally self-destructive, drug addled marriage to the “KANG OF R&B” Bobby Brown—a disastrous union that became a tabloid wet dream. When your well crafted, yet over hyped comeback I Look To You was released last year, for a moment Clive Davis had us all forgetting that infamous crack-is-wack interview. But your recent dazed and confused concert performance in Australia was the final verdict. A series of missed and mangled notes and overall strange behavior (Abruptly leaving the stage during songs and slurring your way through a gig is probably not the best way to endear yourself to fans who paid $165 per ticket) displays a woman who evidently still needs to deal with her personal demons instead of headlining a tour. But we're pulling for you Nippy.

    As for you Mariah, your continued success post the horrific Glitter has been an enabler of sorts. While it’s easy to place blame on Jermaine Dupri for resuscitating your career with 2005’s Emancipation of Mimi, Janet’s on-again-off-again road dog can’t be blamed for that incessant one-note formula. While no one would ever mistake your live show for an over-the-top Beyonce revue, whispering over pre-recorded vocal tracks just doesn’t cut it. Beyond your questionable penchant for dressing like a horny 17-year prom date in a state of arrested development and a much rumored battle with the bottle (Yo Nick, talk to wifey), the cold, sobering fact is that the soaring vox on 1990’s “Vision of Love” is now overpowered by female rap savior Nicki Minaj on “Up Out My Face.” Given your dubious history on the big screen, it’s kind of cool that you’re getting respectful notice for your role in Precious. Hey, anything’s better than making records with Gucci Mane, right?

    Goodnight divas. It’s time to salvage what’s left of your remarkable, legendary careers. At least we've still got Sade. —Keith Murphy

    I've liked some of her songs -- mostly her pre-1997 work -- but I have never been all that smitten with her. She comes off as very full of herself, and basically fake.

    Aside from being disillusioned with the material she's been putting out for the last few years, I also am just simply tired of her. I am surprised she has managed to last this long as much as she has forced fed herself to everyone. She really needs to allow the public a breather from her, all the while she can be getting herself together and hopefully release something with a little more focus and depth, like in her earlier days. That is the Mariah I would gladly buy again.

    default Official: Mariah’s ‘Angel’s Advocate’ Shelved

    Post by Chris on Sun Mar 21, 2010 6:49 pm




    Following our exclusive report on the cancellation of Mariah Carey’s ‘Angel’s Advocate’ LP, there has, today, emerged fresh reports indicating the record has officially been shelved. Prior to now an air of silence has plagued suggestion of the album’s axe, with calls to Carey’s rep going unanswered. However, as per CD Now’s updated listings, ‘Advocate’ page, which previously indicated a March 30th store date, now reads ‘Released Cancelled’. Ouch.

    ——————————————-

    It appears ol’ Mimi’s team are set to quietly pretend this remix LP was ever in the pipeline, which – truth be told – shouldn’t prove too difficult; as no one knew/cared for the album in its original form (see: ‘Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel’ and its sales).

    At this junction, it’s perhaps best Mariah gather herself together, re-assess her musical output, and hit us with something worth buying/playing a few years down the line. A serious image assessment during this period too wouldn’t go amiss either.

    Even Mariah couldn't have been delusional enough to think that anyone was going to buy that concoction.

    i'm going with Mariah. she definately has the better vocal range--personally i've always thought Beyonce's voice was waaaaay overrated. personality-wise, Mariah takes it there too. Mariah just seems like she'd be more fun to chill with--Beyonce seems to take herself too seriously sometimes. also, Beyonce just....i dunno she just bugs me. i'm not even really sure why, but she always has.

    Neither.
    They both irk me for different reasons. Beyonce's music and voice are both spastic and obnoxious. Aside from a few one off hits here and there, like "Me, Myself and I" and "Halo," I usually cannot stand what she does. Mariah is just a mess. She used to have a good voice once upon a time, and I liked some of her earlier songs, but today she is a walking sketch comedy parody.

    I don't particularly like either one today, but there's no question that Mariah has the better back catalogue. If I sift through Mariah's body of work versus Beyonce's, I'm going to find more Mariah songs I'd rather listen to.

    Both deserve a prison term for defiling the world of music with their sonic putridness, but I'd give Beyonce the lighter sentence...

    I feel the same way. She is very full of herself and comes off like an aging BRATZ doll. Beyonce seems more likable as a person.
