Mariah Carey fell down on stage as she performed ‘Make It Happen’ at the Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix. The American pop star, who has gained weight and prompted many to assume she’s pregnant, joked to her Lambs in the audience, “I did that on purpose.” Carey then called out for her assistants, asking them to help remove her shoes. After the fall, Carey continued her performance and sang ‘Dreamlover’ barefoot. Watch it via YouTube below.
Mariah Carey sent out a video message to her fans talking about her upcoming holiday album ‘Merry Christmas II You’, which is released November 2nd. “My Christmas wish for my fans would be for them to have an amazingly beautiful holiday and for all of us to have a peaceful world,” Mariah says. “This album is my gift to you. This has been an incredible experience and I hope you like it a lot. I hope you love it actually, and I hope you can all listen to it for years to come.” Watch the message at mariahcarey.com.

Madonna And Family Arrive In Malawi
April 7, 2010 – Madonna and family arrive in Malawi for a week-long charity tour and to reunite her adopted children with their birth families. The Material Girl said on her official web site:
On my first visit to Malawi, I was devastated to meet child after child who had been orphaned by AIDS. Having lost my mother at such a young age, I felt a close connection to these children. Their stories had touched my own. In a country of 14 million, a staggering one million children have been left alone with the responsibility of raising each other. I returned home knowing the future of Malawi was resting on the shoulders of these orphaned children, and I had to act. It is with tremendous joy that I return to Malawi to lay the first brick in the Raising Malawi Academy for Girls. By educating girls we will rebuild this community and raise this nation.
