Mariah Carey caught lip syncing during New Year's Eve performance

Lip sync fail
Happy New Year everybody! 
  • Yet again Mariah was caught singing or not singing to a backing track and this time she didn't give a damn if we noticed it or not. Mariah Carey is making the news for all the wrong reasons. During her New Year's Eve performance; Mariah was noticeably lip syncing to her songs and she had no qualms about it. As the backing track played, Mariah removed the mic from her mouth and was carried around the stage by her backup dancers. When it was time to perform her hit song, "Emotions"; the backing track played and Mariah stood idle before speaking to the crowd and telling them the song was "#1". Duh! We knew that! This isn't the first time Mariah has been caught lip syncing but possibly the most notorious of her lip sync fails. She did nothing to try and cover up the fact that she was lip syncing. She just noticeably gave up and made several excuses. Now I didn't see the televised performance as I was out at a gathering at my friend's relatives house. Of course when I got on social media later in the wee hours of the morning, all I saw was videos of Mariah's disastrous performance. Mariah quickly responded to the backlash with a meme saying "shit happens" and yadda yadda. Why does Mariah lip sycn? Likely because her voice isn't what it used to be or she may be on what she calls "vocal rest". Many people bulk at the idea of a singer lip syncing especially someone of Mariah's stature but it is what it is and she's been doing it long enough. It seems to get progressively worse though and maybe there was a culprit behind the scenes that wanted to expose Mariah. You can assume that many were fired after the stage mishap. I just feel like if Mariah can't hit some of the notes like she used to or if not on that particular performance; just scale back. Did you see Mariah's performance and what did you think?

Album Spotlight: Ne-Yo - In My Own Words

It's probably starting to look like a Ne-Yo fan site here with all the recent posts mentioning him; but I assure you it is not. The hype behind Ne-Yo's debut album; "In My Own Words" reached a fever pitch thanks to the debut single; "So Sick". The song was a huge success including its singles; "Sexy Love", "When Ur Mad" and more.

Ne-Yo definitely plays up on his buzz by writing and producing many of the tracks. This album would lead to Ne-Yo being a very sought after songwriter and producer. It is the album of his I favor the most. I think as he progressed as an artist; I somewhat lost interest.

Now playing: Trina - I Want It All (ft. Monica)

*UPDATED* Music Feed: Janet Jackson's Most Sexualized Songs: REVISITED

You all, my readers, my visitors; my supporters; you have made this post one of the most successful posts on my blog. I kept wondering what it was about this post, that made it so successful; one word: JANET! The fact that Janet has new music on the way makes this post even more of a hot topic. As its been said before, no one sings about sex quite like Janet Jackson. Her songs, ooze with the right amount of sexuality perfect for a night of steamy sex. Take a look back at a number of songs Janet is responsible for delivering her in trademark breathy delivery. I took the liberty of adding a few other songs that didn't make the list before. 

This song begins with echos of Janet saying " my mouth". By then you should already know what this song is about. Janet sings about the "warmth" of her mouth and how she pleases her lover; Jermaine Dupri at the time. This is a very sensual song and it is one of the most explicit Janet has ever recorded …

Album Spotlight: Beyonce - Dangerously In Love

If you were in love in 2003, it wasn't official unless you were living "Dangerously In Love". It was the title of Beyonce's 2003 breakthrough solo album which spawned the singles, "Crazy In Love" featuring Jay-Z, "Baby Boy" featuring Sean Paul, "Me, Myself, and I", and the title track. The album would serve as a precursor of what was to come from this bonafide superstar. Unlike her later albums, "Dangerously" was deep-rooted in southern soul and R&B melodies. This album also showed a more gentler, sultry, and relaxed(voice wise) Beyonce. As opposed to the last few years her style has been more abrasive and in your face. Never one to be outdone, Beyonce was set to release a follow-up to this album titled, "Dangerously In Love 2" featuring unreleased songs but it didn't happen. From the seductive "Speechless" to the cautionary tale of "Me, Myself, and I", "Dangerously In Love" is m…
