Mariah Carey and Miguel dropped their new single, “#Beautiful,” on Monday, and it quickly rose to the top of the iTunes Singles Chart (it’s currently sitting in the #6 position). Response to this song has been incredibly positive, even if The Lambily seems to be aching for a bit more Mimi on the track. Either way, these two wasted no time in dropping a video for the song, which proves once and for all (as if there were any doubters out there!) that Mariah’s still one of the hottest chicks in the game.
Last year’s “comeback” single for Mariah Carey, “Triumphant,” sounded fantastic but never really caught on with the public-at-large. So, this time around, the new mom and target of Nicki Minaj shady subtweets decided to partner up with R&B sensation Miguel, who just scored the Grammy for Best R&B single, on a track called “Beautiful.” It’s not your typical Mariah fare, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t love it.

This season of American Idol might be one of the tightest competitions in Idol history. Last night, Amber Holcomb sizzled while singing a classic Barbra Streisand song, Kree Harrison soared on a Celine Dion ballad, Candice Glover brought a literal new spin to a Paula Abdul dance track, and Janelle Arthur fumbled slightly on some country standards. However, the moment of the night was probably when Angie Miller dedicated her first song of the night, The Pretenders‘s “I’ll Stand By You,” to her hometown of Boston.
On last night’s American Idol, the final six competitors belted their way through the Bacharach songbook and chose songs they wished they’d written, but the moment of the night came directly after the performance of the night, when judge Mariah Carey left her post to shower contestant Candice Glover in glitter.
Is Demi Lovato going to get to “annoy” Simon Cowell again on X Factor? What popular sitcom is Taylor Swift going to guest star on this year? All this, plus Macklemore opens up about his addictions, in today’s Last Lap.
Today is Mariah Carey‘s birthday, and as a companion piece to Mariah’s 43 best facial expresions, we wanted to celebrate this glorious occasion by counting down her 43 all-time best songs. Since her debut LP, Mariah Carey, dropped back in 1990, no other artist has had the kind of chart success that Mimi has enjoyed: 27 Top 10 singles —18 of which went all the way to #1— and six albums that topped the Billboard 200. So, what we’re saying is that there was a lot of debate about what songs from her amazing catalog should make the list. Read more…
Today we’re bumping all Mariah Carey everything to honor the diva’s 43rd birthday. And while we’re zoning out to “Honey” and “We Belong Together” we’re flipping through 43 of the pop legend’s diva facial expressions.
Don’t wave your ‘this is sexist’ flags just yet. At least hear us out. We haven’t gone all Tommy Mottola or Clive Davis on you by claiming these women owe their success to men. Woosah.
