Let’s just get right to spillin’ and breakin’ those mugs from the “special” cabinet that your Mother just reorganized from the holidays.
Because it’s 2017 now and it’s time to get down to business…starting with this.
1.Because that earpiece really does make all of the difference…for Mariah. Okay, let’s first spill about that not-so-elusive earpiece that flew off, dah-ling, and was (it was) apparently the root of…all things Mariah’s live..singing career. Get ready to clutch those pearls because…every music artist uses one when they sing live. Not only does it help them get in tune with their backup music surroundings and all of that not so joyful backup noise that’s guaranteed to surround them (it will) with every show, but it helps them keep in glorious tune with….themselves.
Throw all of that into the mix with a veteren diva who clearly depends on that earpiece for a lot and looked terrified with the thought of vocally going forward without it against a bunch of boozed up bros and babes in Times Square on the biggest party night of the year…
…and well, Glitter 2.
And as far as that pesky back up track was concerned…y’all think MC‘s hittin’ them “We Belong Together” and “Emotions” hiiiigh notes all by her damn self anymore?
The “Honey” weave has been rested.
2.Because she’ll most likely learn something from this whole experience.. If there’s one thing that we can all take away from this whole thing, it’s that it’s abundantly clear that Mariah has no idea what to do when your life apparently unravels in the front of the whole entire world to see.
Since this is Mariah we’re spilling about here, she’ll most likely get into her whole self-discovering Butterfly mode and might learn some stuff, like, how to properly start over when things don’t take off on the runway quite as planned.
How about…walk off the stage.
Or maybe, just maybe, she can take a refresher course on some of those lyrics to some of those classics that we love to hear her actually…..sing. Or if she’s really feeling humble, maybe she should watch J.Lo’s New Year’s Eve performance that we’re not sure anybody watched. Hello?
Also, Mariah, those so-called “dips” need some serious werk before you drop by on March 18th. And (sigh…) please don’t cancel, Mr. Richie and your Philly fans would be so..heartbroken.
3.Because shit really does happen in this thing called life… While we may never know exactly (let’s not forget, MC’s got a fab PR team) which element lit the match to explode Mariah’s now legendary New Year’s Eve bomb (so much back & forth like the dearly departed Ms. ‘Liyah), but there did seem to be this thing called life tossed up all up in the middle of it. Unfortunately, things, like happen in life and as much as we want everyday to smell like roses and feel like whiskers…fucking shit’s going to happen to…you.
And when you’re a celebrity all up in that spotlight, that shit storm sometimes scales sky-high off the charts. And in Mariah’s case? She gave and served us with full on Helen Hunt in the middle of Twister. With the cows.
Now, that’s life comin’ straight at you. You got this, boo.
4.Because she’s Mariah and she’ll always be more fabulous than you… See:Mariah’s World
5. Because we’re all going to need to put focus on getting our life lessons on in optimism soon.. And the power of music always helps us get through this, that and the other thang…which will never be a subject here (so, come on in!) as we kick off a brand spankin’ new year of nothing else but the music truth and spill all kinds of piping hot local and legendary entertainment tea.
Which is also why you should stop throwing all of that shade (put down the Lemonade, Bey…she’ll figure it out) at Ms. Mariah and get back to Daydream, Butterfly, The Emanciptation of Mimi, or any other of the records that made her who she is and always will be through the triumph…or the through the rain…...that diva.
And just remember as we march off into 2017, if Mariah can get through New Year’s Eve, you can get through anything that comes your way this year.
Let’s do it. That means you, too, MC.
