    The hand looks ready to grab at any second. Asbestos tits aside, at least she looks happy.

    A friend of mine who has loathed Mariah for as long as I've known him announced today that he liked Me. I Am Mariah. Things may start to TURN AROUND for our ELUSIVE CHANTEUSE :disco:

    She's probably learned from Madonna. You can pump your face full of fillers but the hands never lie!

    That's the reason she's still wearing the hideous gloves.

    I think it's more of a case of just leaving it out on the lawn and seeing if anyone takes it.

    36:19 onwards in the video below, JD essentially blames Mariah for the flop, but claims there's a PLAN :)

    What absolute bullshit they released THREE (5) fucking buzz singles before the album so how is that not wanting to put the music out there until it's released in entirety. Tosser.

    I don't think you can blame it on the Buzz singles though - Beyoncé released FUCK all before her album. Also Céline's lead single wasn't exactly HUGE either and she did ok.

    Is he serious with the "plan"? :D

    Someone educate him on how the current niche music affair works. Your first week sales make up about 40-60% of your total sales depending on how shit (or well) your first 2 singles do. Period.

    yeah there is a plan

    keep half-heartedly releasing anything from the album, making shitty promotion and then blame the public for 'not getting it'

    it'll work I'm sure

    Mariah Carey&rsquo;s Latest Album Crashes and Burns on Charts, Drops Off Top 100
    ■Music
    by Roger Friedman - June 13, 2014 6:57 pm

    Mariah Carey has proven to be the most elusive chanteuse. Her latest album, &ldquo;Me I Am Mariah, The Elusive Chanteuse&rdquo; has crashed and burned. Fast. Despite great reviews, &ldquo;Me I am Mariah&rdquo; is now number 157 on iTunes and 75 amazon.com. It was released on May 27th, just two and a half weeks ago. Saleswise, the album has sold a paltry 75,000 copies through this past Sunday and probably not too many more after that.

    The failure of &ldquo;Me I Am Mariah&rdquo; should be a lesson for everyone in her age group and generation still recording and releasing music. Jennifer Lopez should be watching all of this very carefully. Carey took off five years after her last album, and even that CD was not a smash hit. Carey&rsquo;s last real hit album was &ldquo;The Emancipation of Mimi&rdquo; in 2005.

    But &ldquo;Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel&rdquo; (2009) had no hit singles and was already signalling that Carey had aged out of the hit pop radio market. &ldquo;Memoirs&rdquo; sold only 550,000 copies, a far cry from its predecessors.

    Now Carey faces a total write off of &ldquo;Me I Am&rdquo; unless DefJam can figure out a way to resuscitate it. But even electric shock paddles may not be enough. Mariah needs to drop the Diva act (including campy stuff like being photographed on the subway in a tight fitting ball gown). Her best bet is a knock out, heart string pulling video for the George Michael gospel song &ldquo;One More Try,&rdquo; or something witty and self-parodying for the upbeat &ldquo;Thirsty.&rdquo;

    that she can't just assume it will do well because her name is mariah carey i guess. that's what i would take from it if i were her. though i would have hopefully already learned that from the moaia disaster.
