YOUR FIRED!!! MeMe is a total douchebag-and who is she fooling with a world tour?? she can’t even make it through one song at a lamo GMA “concert” without her blubber flopping out and splitting her dress-then after “singing” to a studio track still sounds like crappp and has it sound edited–MeMe is like a huge fat delusional joke-anyone who pays for a ticket might as well burn their cash

oh and Jared Honey-you are starting to sound like illiterate bahhing MeMe sheep-her bogus song is NOT #1 in 30 countries-it has just barely made the charts in a few countries due to paid for radio play-like all MeMe sheep you have absolutely no conception of what numbers actually mean and just spew out random ones to try and sound important-making yourself sound like an annoying moron

SEE YA!! May the door hit your size 10 behind on your way out.

No because she lip sync’s and lies about it.
If you don’t have it anymore you don’t have it. You’re still a ledgend

@Kay: Kind of a dark ledgend

@Fatal, please have several seats. Goats like you should be exiled.

And, “sweetie”, you know this how? Are you part of Idol’s production or FOX? Per Fox Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly, Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey would all be “welcomed back,” and added, “everything at this point is on the table”.

Idol’s a sinking ship. After Fox and the media made it about the Nicki-Mariah beef instead of the contestants this past year, the show lost its allure. She’s smart to leave a chair that’s going to have revolving judges for the next several years anyways.

People are still watching Idol?? How pathetic!

Now that she fired Randy Jackson as her manager and has someone with sense running her career to tell her being on American Idol was always way beneath her. I far believe the only reason why Randy Jackson was on the last season of Idol because he brought Mariah to the table.

#1 in 30+ countries? lol dis lie …she wishes

Tommy Motolla drove her mad

You haters are ***** ass losers.
Look at her stats and awards.
She ***** on any of ur fav artists any day of the week.
She is gonna continue to be a success and **** on ur fav.

Heard half of “POW” yesterday. It’s brilliant. Very pop, with the exception of one track we’ve asked her to leave off. Loads of ballads. Reminiscent of Music Box. Call it a comeback!

@fatal: Yeah but at least she can spell… LMAO That would be “YOU’RE” sheesh.

Love Love Mariah, she will always be THE BEST female vocalist of all times and any negative comments boggle my mind. Mariah is in excellent physical shape and looks absolutely terrific in everything she wears. Super slim and especially looks great even after having her babies. A world tour sounds awesome!!!
