Mariah Carey responded to talk that she had lost her way, letting others call the shots and mold her to whatever is hot at the moment, rather than following her own instincts. “I don’t feel that way with the ‘Charmbracelet’ album at all. I have a wide variety of influences,” she tells Mark Brown of Scripps Howard News Service. “I love hip-hop music and always have. I’ve been doing collaborations with hip-hop artists since Old Dirty Bastard in 1996 with ‘Fantasy’. I have the capacity to do a gospel-influenced ballad or a hip-hop influenced record. I don’t feel I should be limited into doing one or the other.”
