    HELL YEAH!!!! That’s all I have to say! You haters may say what you please, but the list don’t lie!!!!! Mariah is a superstar, Mariah is a diva, Mariah is a LEGEND!!! Keep hating haters, because the awards just keep coming!

  2. Kizzardkid says:

    RIGHT ON! MARIAH IS THE BEST AND WILL ALWAYS BE THE BEST, NO ONE AND I MEAN NO ONE CAN COMPETE WITH THIS GIRL, EVEN THOUGH PEOPLE SAY THAT THIS IS THE ERA OF J.HO AND BEYONCE, SCREW ALL THAT, NO ONE GIVES A DAMN ABOUT THEM, THOSE GIRLS CAN’T DO NOTHING WHEN IT COMES TO MARIAH, THE ONLY ONE WHO IS SHOWING STAYING POWER IS CHRISTINA, BUT THAT’S JUST IN MY OPINION BUT SHE TOO IS STILL WAY BEHIND MARIAH. MARIAH IS NOT EVEN IN HER LATE 30’S AND SHE HAS ACCOMPLISHED MORE THAN WHAT MADONNA AND WHITNEY HAS EVER HAD IN THERE 20 YEARS OF BEING IN THE BUSINESS. MARIAH KICKS ASS.

  3. B0rntoplay says:

    People are dumb, and they unfairly attack Mariah. I love her voice and her music, and she is definitely a music icon. But don’t worry about what people on these boards say. Most of them are very immature and think that liking a specific artist means you can’t like anyone else. That or they are bitter that Mariah is more talented than the person they like.

  4. PaulNick19 says:

    THANK YOU for posting this! These accomplishments are amazing. Its just easy for people to forget about all of these things because Mariah is still after all this time, in the high category of today’s pop stars. Whereas other artists that came out in 1990 are long gone. MARIAH RULES!

  5. amusicfanofsoul says:

    I THINK SHE WAS WONDERFUL THEN…BUT SINGERS HAVE SURPASSED HER SO MUCH. I LIKED BOTH HER AND WHITNEY…WHITNEY HAD THE POWERFUL VOICE THAT MARIAH COULDN’T TOUCH AND MARIAH HAD THE HIGH VOICE WHITNEY COULDN’T TOUCH. THAT’S WHY I THINK CHRISTINA IS IN THE MIX OF THE TWO. SHE CAN OFFER BOTH. BUT MARIAH HAS GONE DOWN THE DRAIN. I MEAN WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO HER. SHE WASN’T OVERWORKED ON PURPOSE, BECAUSE IF SHE FELT HOW SHE’S TELLING THE WORLD, THEN SHE WOULD HAVE HIRED A NEW MANAGEMENT LIKE CHRISTINA DID. IT WAS REALLY UP TO HER. BUT SHE TOOK THE SHOTS AND LOST A LOT OF HER TALENT. BUT SHE IS STILL A GOOD VOICE…BUT NOT THE BEST NOW. HOPEFULLY SHE CAN HAVE AN AWESOME COMEBACK. BECAUSE HER HITS AREN’T THE BEST NOW. AND WHATS WITH THE COLLABORATIONS?

  6. WaneInTheZone says:

    Her little awards and large quantities of record sales don’t give me anymore respect for her. Mariah is mentally a wreck, She has no backbone and she can’t even manage her own career. She came to Tommy Mottola and panted and whimpered like a dog begging and pleading for a record deal. Then from that moment on she was a tool, She was told when and where to sing. She penned a few crappy pop songs that the label snatched from here, tweaked them and made pop songs that appealed to the general audience back then. When was Mariah’s last #1 top 40 hit? “Glitter” and “Charmbracelet” have the combined sales of 2 Million, That’s absolutely pathetic…And who do her fans blame for her recent failures, Everyone else. Ashanti, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera…Basically everyone who’s been more successful then her. Mariah HAD her day, People are no longer being persuaded into buying her music because their told she’s the second coming of Jesus Christ. Lambs are protected by Amendment to the right to worship whoever they choose to, On the same note I chose to worship the lord not an aging diva…Thank You

    not to mention, 18 number 1 singles more than any other solo artist, 200 million record sales, 11 platinum albums 1 diamond album. one of the greatest vocalist of our time. broken every record for a female artist. ‘we belong together’ is the biggest selling song of the decade

    okay so her latest album did not do that well (it did ok) but 1 bad album shouldn’t overshadow her legendary achievements. and with her Christmas album I am sure she will write and record another iconic Christmas song like ‘all I want for Christmas’

    the people who hate on her will be eating there words, people said she was over after ‘glitter’ then she came back bigger and better than before.

    Mariah Care is Music Leading Lady, so get use to it!
