    I do love that Celine clip. At the time I thought it was actually quite moving. There's certainly nothing fake about her. She really is THAT insane.

    That's what I love about Celine. Madonna, Whitney, Mariah etc are fabulous to read about but probably complete cunts. Celine just seems like a really nice, but certifiably insane, person.

    Bless crazy Celine with her arm waving and dramatic eye stroking and then she just gets her shit together and sings her prayer. She is incredible.

    'THERE'S A TROOPER' indeed.

    "They're stealing twenty pair of jeans or they're stealing television sets. WHO CARES, they're not going to go too far with it"

    In hindsight, I blame Celine for broken Britain.

    The Celine clip is nearly EIGHT MINUTES of TV GOLD. Absolutely AMAZING.

    She is crying her heart out, obviously in some sort of insane distress - and then he asks her to SING :D

    She can't swallow her coffee in the mornings Larry - how the hell can she SING?

    :D

    MARIAH BEEFS WITH HER BACKING TAPE


    [​IMG]

    Let's get one thing straight. Divas is the 2000s have not been about the vocals. Vocals are more 90s than Buffalo trainers and curtains. Let's get THAT STRAIGHT. We don't do vocals. We don't do that.

    Instead, we lip along to helpful pre-records and pray that the track is not having its own Top 26 DIVA MOMENT of the 2000s that day by getting its bitch head on and trying to fuck with your perfectly co-ordinated performance. Of course Mariah is no stranger to the backing track. They first met back in OH ONE, around the time of the Superbowl. They kept it cordial for a while, but during the multi-platinum, earth-shattering Emancipation of Mimi campaign, these two bitches started a long-term thing. They were more committed than a 2-month lesbian relationship, and even Ellen DeGeneres and Jodie Foster questioned whether Mariah was in too deep, too fast.

    The unfortunate reality is that Mariah needed her backing track like Jennifer Lopez needs a hit single. It was a full-on unhealthy co-dependent relationship. Her backing track was her date at the 2006 Grammys, and was a trusty companion throughout the sell-out Adventures of Mimi Stadium Tour.

    But these two kids were clearly going through a rough patch back in April OH EIGHT. Maybe the backing track had just found out that Mariah had been fucking Nick Cannon on the side for the last few months instead of concentrating on her lipping technique. Maybe Mariah had just been a bitch that morning and the backing tape had just had enough. Either way, some major shit went down on the set of Good Morning America that day.

    Mariah was ready to start her performance. Everything seemed fine for the first few seconds, and then it hit the fan. The backing tape was singing out of time. Mariah was froze right there, staring down at her <s>red</s> pink yet lavender dress. This wasn't anything unusual of course, because Mariah is always frozen when she's live on stage. It's her thing. Like a true pro, she tried to cover this domestic up for the sake of her rapid fans in the crowd, but the backing track wasn't having any of that shit and kept skipping all over the place like he was on a night out with Ashlee Simpson.

    Mariah finally had enough and called her backing track out with a phrase so immortally fabulous in its cuntishness that it fully deserves its place in the TOP 8 DIVA MOMENTS of the 2000s.

    It's a phrase that has penetrated the gay lexicon, and is now widely used by lambs all over the world in a variety of contexts. Just the other day, I was doing karaoke after my work Xmas party and some bitch stepped on my cue. You know what I had to do.

    I had to tell that bitch to STOP SINGIN' MY PART NOW BABY.

    You can't blame me for bringing something creative to the moment. And you can't blame Mariah either.

    10/10

    I have been dipping in and out of this thread and it is SUCH gold that I am saving it up for a proper read over the festive holiday when I can give it the attention it deserves.

    Innit, i may print it out to read by the fireside.

    That Celine Dion interview may actually be my favourite of the whole lot, even more than Mariah's ice cream. I can't listen to any version of The Prayer without pissing myself, to think i always assumed she was boring.

    I can't believe we are nearly heading into the Top 7

    I think it's finally time for the THE VOICE to make an app

    You know, I've never really understood the moment that was SSMPNB, although I like it as a phraseology.

    And I'm still not ANY clearer, it must be said.

    I'm so with you there...I love the phrase and the fact that she was caught with such BLATANT backing track assistance, but what relation does the line have to do with the skipping from two minutes earlier that has since resolved?

    HERE'S HOW IT WENT DOWN

    Forget the two-minutes earlier thing. What you need to be listening out for is the "touuuch my BODY" which is the lead-in to the final set of choruses. It plays too early at 2:22 during the line "you won't want for nothing boy". And then Mariah has to do it herself in its correct place.

    I always thought the 'stop singin' my part now, baby' line was directed toward that cow of a backing singer that always insists on outsinging Mariah, especially during the E=MC2 era. I know it's not a difficult task considering Mariah's '08 vocal prowess but Mariah clearly felt the need to put the bv in her place.

    There must have been another performance that I remember, where she kept on looking back at the same bv and gave her this death glare. :D

    There was another performance like that! Might have been on American Idol? Not sure, but StopSingingMyPartGate was definitely as I described it above. :hitler:

    I'm sure she was given the death stare during the Oprah performance too.

    There was no backing singer on GMA. She was attacking her own pre-recorded voice

    THAT'S WHAT'S SO FABULOUS ABOUT IT

    I don't understand how you could enjoy it as a TOP 25 DIVA MOMENT without that context.

    I guess what I meant was I've never understood WHY it was such a moment in moopy diva cultural history. But I enjoy it anyway.

    I can't wait for the upper echelons of this thread.

    I never really got ALL the excitement over "Stop Singing My Part Now Baby" either, but to be fair, it's an odd clip that divides me...because although it's great she gets "caught out" lipping, she actually pulls it together with a reasonable (if a bit croaky) live vocal after it all goes tits up- now THAT'S professionalism.

    But the absolute #1 for me is the Celine interview. It's brilliant on so many levels- comedy gold, yes, but I feel for her so much- she genuinely gives a shit rather than the bandwagon jumping charity idiocy of most stars today. I love it, and I watch it on a FAR too regular basis...

    I think the SSMPNB thing is that it's such a genius LINE. The performance isn't a car crash, as Sheena says she pulls it back really well and you have to pay close attention to work out what's going on. 90% of the audience probably never clocked a thing. But it's such a brilliant off-the-cuff thing to say and only Mariah would say something like that.

    JLo last to stand up for THE VOICE. And I thought Lance Bass was a John or Edward for a second.
