Since pretty much everyone’s thoughts and opinions are posted on Popdirt, why not share my views. Some “inexperienced” and “worthless” career suggestions for Mariah Carey have been posted. Here’s my replies in the respected order to which were shared by the article ‘Career Suggestions For Mariah Carey’.
1. You might say Mariah should change her career and write songs for other artists. My first question to you is ‘What the hell are you thinking?’. Mariah Carey is a superstar and has one of the most incredible voice’s in the history of the music industry. Haven’t you learned the saying “NEVER LET YOUR TALENT GO TO WASTE”. And in regards to a remark saying Christina Aguilera and Kelly Clarkson have MORE powerful voices then Mariah, THAT IS WHAT YOU THINK. I will have to disagree. Christina and Kelly are great, they have talent, they can sing, but Mariah’s voice blows the competition to the water (Just read the ‘Charmbracelet World Tour’ concert reviews).
2. You might say Mariah should change her career and write children’s books. Again THAT’S WHAT YOU THINK. You don’t go from being a successful superstar music artist to writing children’s books in a few days, it takes time. Oh and Mariah isn’t the type to “copy” other celebs, since Madonna just released a children’s book about a month ago. Mariah does her own thing!
3. You might say Mariah should change her career and do a reality show. Actually Mariah is in the middle of a successful world tour at this moment so i would suppose there is no time for a career change to star in a reality show. Oh and by the way Liza Minelli’s reality show NEVER HAPPENED. And for the Anna Nichole Smith show, well a reason for its dismal success has come from her high-profile trial which she sued for money from her late-husband.
4. You might say Mariah should change her career and live and work in Southeast Asia or some other third world country. I disagree, whats wrong with Mariah living in America, whats wrong with Mariah being an American artist. Are you jealous Mariah Carey’s success?. Are you “MAD” because you have got no where in life?. That’s your problem. In regards to you saying Mariah is accepted everywhere else except America is nonsense. Mariah will always be accepted in America. America is still giving Mariah success, whether its #1 hits or top 100 hits.
There has never been a time I’ve thought Mariah should be something else other then a singer. With the huge success she has had Mariah Carey is here to stay.
