This post is for a third round of comments continuing the discussion sparked by the Monarc_2002 editorial viewable here and continued here asking whether Celine Dion or Mariah Carey has had the more successful career.
Nick Cannon tells MTV News he and wife Mariah Carey were thinking about babies right off the bat, not engaging in the usual first date banter. “We thought of a few names, ironically, when we first met,” he recalled. “On our first date [I was planning out our life], and she was into it, and we still play around with those names, but now that it’s real … when the babies come out, we’ll see if they keep the names we made up on our first date.”
Mariah Carey checked in with her Twitter followers (@MariahCarey) moments ago as she was celebrating her brithday (which she calls an anniversary) with news on her pregnancy. The singer, who is expecting twins with husband Nick Cannon, writes:
So #dembabies really wanted to celebrate with us/share the anniversary! I started having contractions last night..went to the hospital-
Finally they said I could come home after they got it under control but..
They almost came on 3/27- happy anniversary indeed!!! We have a few more weeks to go but- wow!!!: ) #soreadyallready!
This is a post to continue discussion on whether Madonna or Mariah Carey is the top selling female artist in a post from StilettoSadist. Check out the original post and the 400+ comments and a continuation of the discussion.
Madonna Excited To See Lola Focus On Fashion Line
September 25, 2010 – Popstar! magazine was inside with Madonna and her daughter Lourdes “Lola” Leon for their party celebrating the release of their Material Girl line at Macy’s on September 22nd. Madonna, Lola, Taylor Momsen and Madonna’s son Rocco were on stage. Thanking Lola for her help with the fashion line, Madonna told the audience, “It’s been so great to watch her focus, her determination… I have achieved many things in my life, but I have to say watching my daughter make her dreams come true and achieve her goals is the most exciting thing I’ve ever done.” Watch footage via YouTube below.
Mariah Carey is pregnant, but she’s still willing to wear see-through clothing that exposed her expanding belly while making a visit to the doctor’s office. “She’s gonna be a good mom,” TMZ’s Harvey Levin opined, “because she’s so crazy.” Their video report at MySpace has since been removed.
Ryan Seacrest will be joined by Nick Cannon and Maria Menounos to host this year’s ‘Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade’ on ABC. The show will feature performances from Mariah Carey, Selena Gomez, Sean Kingston, ‘American Idol’ winner Lee DeWyze, ‘Glee’ star Amber Riley, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Disney star Debby Ryan, and ‘America’s Got Talent’ star Jackie Evancho. Watch a preview of the show that airs Saturday at 12 PM ET/PT below.
Mariah Carey sat down for a Q&A session with The Advocate, where the singer talked about how she invited a young gay couple onstage at a Las Vegas concert last year to help facilitate their marriage proposal. “If two people want to get married, it’s their prerogative – we hope,” Carey said. “Everybody should be able to do what they want to do and be in the pursuit of happiness. Ever since I was a little girl, my mother was very open-minded and had many different types of friends, so being gay never seemed wrong or strange to me. Her best friends were a gay couple, Ernie and Mort, and they kind of co-raised me. They were the nicest guys ever, and they would watch my little shows when I’d sing. Today, I guess they’d be called my guncles. Sometimes they’d put us up when we didn’t have a place to go. I couldn’t wait to go stay at their house because it was so beautifully done.”
Mariah Carey is out with the music video to her new single ‘Oh Santa!’, off the American pop singer’s holiday album ‘Merry Christmas II You’, out now on Island Records. Watch the Ethan Lader directed video via YouTube below.
Billy Bush checked in on his YouTube channel with his first thought of the day, talking about Mariah Carey breaking news on his show that she and husband Nick Cannon are expecting their first child together. “I guess it’s not shocking that she’s pregnant, I think everyone had figured that out,” Bush said. “She’s 40 years old, never thought this was in her plan. It’s a beautiful thing. I didn’t want to get too sappy while I’m interviewing somebody, but I was very happy for Mariah, she’s definitely met the right guy.” Watch the comments via YouTube below.
Mariah Carey sat down with ‘Access Hollywood’ co-host Billy Bush at her home in New York City to reveal she’s pregnant. What fans may not have known was the road she traveled to get there, which was filled with both joy and heartache. “Honestly, I feel like we really learned a lot just as people,” Carey said about her first pregnancy with Cannon ending in a miscarriage. “It sort of was like more preparing us to do this, because the way it happened so quickly at first, and then I was sort of in shock, that I didn’t expect it, I didn’t know what to expect. When that happened and I wasn’t even able to talk to anyone about it, that was not okay. That was not easy. I’ve never really been a very forthcoming person about my personal stuff, it’s just not my thing.” Carey added that the ordeal “kind of shook us both and really took us to a place that was dark and difficult.” Watch the 2-part interview below the cut.
