Mariah Carey fallen by the "Watch what happens live" Clubhouse and spread over everything from Aretha to Cardi, to Meryl, to the inexplicable emergence of their album "Glitter".
The "elusive singer" was From Andy Cohen only invited at night, leaving him space to weave throughout his career, covering the highlights, avoiding the drama and even the release of his 15th studio album, "Caution".
Carey talked about the iconic collaborations he has made, what he would like to do, and Andy put in his head the idea of making an album of duet performances of his number one hits. We're not going to lie, that could be a million-dollar idea.
He also had to give a shout out to his fans for turning his career to a new level by catapulting the album from the "Glitter" soundtrack to the top of the iTunes album charts, as well as to several Billboard charts, from the last week until A campaign focused on social networks.
A moment that did not make its way online was when Carey shared a mortifying memory with Michelle Obama, while playing a game called "All I Want for Christmas Is Who?" After a photo of the 2013 national Christmas tree lighting ceremony in 2013, she explained: "Rocky spit out Michelle Obama's dress and it was one of the most humiliating things that ever happened to me." She added: "She said: Thanks to you, I'll never be able to wear this dress again, Rocky, so thank you." Rocky, of course, is a Moroccan son.
He also met at a dinner with Britney Spears and said: "There were a couple of things that happened that night, there were cocktails, there were other things … it was great, we love her". When Andy asked her if he knew her at all, not in the gloomy "I do not know her form," she added, "We've been together a couple of times, and from the beginning, when I first met her, she was always a girlfriend."
Check out all the highlights of his frank talk with Andy Cohen below:
"Redemption for & # 39; Glitter & # 39;"
Mariah could not help but celebrate what her fandom has done for her in recent weeks, catapulting her only certified failure to the top of the charts. His previous peak was at number seven, the week of his debut in 2001.
The achievement came through a concerted effort from his fans through the hashtag #JusticeForGlitter in an attempt to redeem the album as misunderstood and ahead of its time. This, of course, led a fan to ask if Mariah will reconsider playing some music from the album on her next tour.
"Since the lambley got 'Glitter' up to number one, they've lifted this huge burden of having to feel like I can not do" Glitter "stuff because nobody knows or anything," said Carey, giving a shout For the fans and the hashtag. "I'm going to say yes, let's put together maybe a mix."
So for all the fans of "Loverboy," it might be time to line up for tickets to Mariah's next movie. And if the album is getting new in the sun, should we also give the movie a second chance? No, we will stay with his incredible performance in "Precious".
"The three of us could make a collaboration"
When talking about collaborations, Andy asked if Mariah would be interested in collaborating with Cardi B. After all, everyone else is in these days, and Mariah had some incredible collaborations throughout her career, and even on her last album.
"I'd love that to happen," he said, noting that a song from the new album Andy had been playing, "A No No," was originally a Lil Kim song. "We love Kim, I hoped the three of us could make a collaboration."
And yes, from time to time she was referring to herself in the real "we", but when you're Mariah Carey you can get away with it. It's not like she was saying that she I was royalty, look.
Oh, and do not have any illusions about a collaboration between Mariah and Nicki Minaj in the short term. After their disastrous time together in "American Idol", Nicki has officially fallen into the "I do not know her" category of Mariah.
"That is the queen of the soul"
Mariah knew how to refer to true royalty, referring to the Queen of the Soul, Aretha Franklin. Of course, someone was going to show the original "Divas Live", which saw Mariah share the spotlight with Aretha.
So, was she excited to sing with one of her musical idols?
"I was very intimidated and I did not want to act with her," Mariah admitted. "Everyone else said," Let me have it. "And I'm not saying anything against anyone else, but I felt there was one thing in which it was like they wanted to be able to say that they had hired her. with the singers in the background, right? the queen of the soul? "
Mariah talked a bit about the rumored drama behind the scenes that involves Aretha, and she did it with the incredible impression of Aretha that left Andy with her mouth open. Who knew she had killer impressions like that?
"She told me: Mariah is playing games, and I do not have the games, so we will not be rehearsing tonight," Mariah said, and her opinion about Aretha was so right that we could imagine the Queen of the Soul speaking like that. Unfortunately, that proposition only left her more terrified by the live performance.
But Mariah would no longer serve, although she almost did, instead joking: "I'm working on my memories." Well, then, we smell another number one going down the line, and in a completely different graphic.
"Please say I did not do that"
That does not mean she feels dignified all the time sitting in that number one spot, especially if it's literally the seat of the number one actress of the modern era, as she accidentally did at this year's Golden Globe Awards.
"Oh, my God, that was so mortifying," Mariah said. "She had talked to me when I did 'Precious', and she was so sweet, it was like, I can not believe Meryl Streep is talking about a performance in a movie I did, it's Meryl Streep, like, no, wait. "
But with a good relationship like that with someone like that, the last thing Mariah wanted to do was ruin it. "When I sat in his seat, I thought:" I did not do that, please say I did not do it, "Mariah said. "But she was like," You can sit at any time. "She was very festive, she was very good about it."
It's true that, as much as Meryl is the queen of her particular domain of entertainment, Mariah is probably her pop equivalent. We suspect that admiration among women is mutual.
"I wrote it and it makes me proud"
Elsewhere, Carey admitted her favorite songs to perform, because she has not yet had the opportunity to play that "Glitter" soundtrack, although she prefers not to mention any that she does not like ("If it's my least favorite, it's not going to perform ".
"Nobody is going to believe this," Mariah said as a preface. "People who know me are going to be like, yes, why do you say that all of a sudden after all these years? I'm going to go with & # 39; Hero & # 39; and & # 39; Everything I want for Christmas, it's you & # 39; "
Carey is understandably very proud of her modern Christmas classic, which has become a showtopper. And she has a similar reason to choose "Hero".
"Usually, it's the last song I do, if I do, and everyone holds their lighters or their phones," he said. "And honestly, I get a little bit excited because I'm like, you know what, how many times have I done this song, but there's always a person that has a specific memory associated with the song and I wrote it and it makes me proud."
They also talked briefly about the misconceptions about Mariah, and apart from her diva status, which is certified, verified and there is no one angry with her, the one that bothers her the most is that so many people do not recognize her. She for her talents as a composer.
17 of his 18 first-class singles he also wrote, while his catalog serves as the story of his life told through the song.
The last chapter of that story, "Caution," was published on November 16.
