Mariah Carey Treats Fans To Impromptu Sing-Along In An Elevator

Mariah Carey Treats Fans To Impromptu Sing-Along In An Elevator Mariah Carey celebrated the release of her new album, “Caution,” with her most intimate performance ever. The pop diva rode MTV’s “TRLevator” Tuesday, where she joined a select group of fans in sing-along versions of her 1995 classic, “Always Be My Baby,” and her current single, “GTFO.” The performance apparently had been kept secret from the fans, one of whom sported a “Vision of Love” tattoo on his bicep in honor of the 1990 hit that launched Carey’s career.

Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” has dominated the charts every December since 1994, but the pop diva’s friendship with the yuletide smash’s cowriter, Walter Afanasieff, has been far from merry.

“We had a falling out,” Afanasieff said in an interview with Radio Times published on Tuesday, December 18. “I would have hoped that in 20 years, she would have knocked on my door — but she hasn’t, so …”

The songwriter, who won a Grammy in 1990 for producing Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On,” explained that his working relationship with Carey ended around the time of her 1997 separation from her first husband, music executive Tommy Mottola.

Mariah Carey Puts a 'Caution' Warning on Her Cleavage in Response to Funny Tweet

Mariah Carey Puts a 'Caution' Warning on Her Cleavage in Response to Funny Tweet Mariah Carey's cleavage is apparently too much for international television. Carey had a good time poking fun of herself Saturday evening (Nov. 24) when she spotted a screenshot of her bust being blurred out during an Asian broadcast of her recent Tonight Show appearance. "#Caution! (Literally, it seems.) Turned on my TV and it seems parts of @MariahCarey on @CNBCi have been pixilated out... Hmmmm. #lifeinAsia," read the original tweet. "Here's what you missed lol," Carey quipped. She quickly followed up with a GIF of herself, with caution tape flashing on and off her cleavage.

“I was under an exclusive contract with him. So, she left the building — she wasn’t even on the label anymore — but I couldn’t go and work with her because he wouldn’t let me,” Afanasieff claimed. “So she found that to be a little bit of a slap in the face.”

The producer then slammed his mega-successful collaborators Carey, Dion, Barbra Streisand and the late Whitney Houston as “very insecure creatures.”

“If you start working on a song with another singer, the jealousy comes out,” he told the U.K. magazine. “They’re very, very jealous people. So, I was working to put food on my table. I can’t only work with Mariah, I have to work with other people, and I think that was a bit of a problem.”

Mariah Carey's legendary Jennifer Lopez shade was her 'trying to be nice' It was so shady that it's now one of the most popular memes and gifs of all times. Years ago, Mariah Carey was asked during an interview about fellow singer/actress Jennifer Lopez. Carey shook her head and proclaimed, "I don't know her."

Afanasieff specifically took issue with Carey. “She doesn’t like to acknowledge other people,” he claimed. “It seems to be a problem with singers. If you see a singer talking about something that they wrote, they will probably say, ‘I wrote the song when I was 12 years old, or here’s another song I wrote.’”

He added, “It doesn’t matter how many interviews she’s done or when she’s on stage, she’ll never, ever say, ‘Here’s the song that I wrote with Walter.’ She’s made it her modus operandi [not to mention my name]. We wrote the song together; my name is 50 percent, her name is 50 percent. We have equal shares.”

Despite their falling out, Afanasieff still enjoyed working with the “Hero” singer. “I love Mariah Carey,” he said. “She’s the greatest thing that ever happened to me. Unfortunately, it doesn’t go both ways.”
