era and generally a fan since Music Box, it suddenly feels from last fall and onwards that I'm more and more falling out of fandom where it concerns Mariah and it's not because of the typical as you get older, you lose interesy thing..it's more because Mariah is getting tackier and more cheap by the day demeaning her own legacy and sadly aging anything but gracefully.
During the Glitter years, the more the world hated on her, the more I stood up for her. It always felt like others didn't get her greatness ( and still don't) but ever since her break up from James, she is acting so desperate and reality-star like and anything but the ICON and LEGEND that she is... most of it I blame on Stella. Obviously Mariah isn't as strong mentally that I thought she was if she can be influenced at her age to take after the tacky ways of that trashy manager. She has always dressed a little inappropriate for her age but it never the less made me love her more, now though it feels like I could just post her face on Stella's body and not notice the difference.
What's with the witch-like nails? Not wearing underwear and having crotch shots taken on the regular?
Mariah used to live in NYC and she would barely be seen photographed outside of reality-celebrity hot spots like clubs and restaurants other than special occasions..now with 2 kids and nearing 50, she is turned to a real TMZ magnet having every meal at Catch and The Ivy and Nobu etc and always posing for idiot paparazzi..what happened to keeping a little aura of privacy?
And don't even start with the Bryan thing...
On the music front, it seems like she doesn't do anything other than for cashing in...you never get the sense from the interviews that she is passionate about Vegas or her tours.. and hogging products for Pride month?
We always used to get very exciting news about the music she was recording, who was mastering what song and the collabs and the writers and all that...
Now ALL we get are constant pics of her going to clubs and restaurant and shopping every week...outside of Aspen, when did we EVER see Mariah go shopping even though she always looked great?
This is a rant but it hurts because I always felt lucked out as a fan for being in the fanbase of someone soooo awesome...she would never have the trials and tribulations of Michael, never be an addict like Whitney, never undergo so much plastic surgery to look a like a clown like Madonna...she would always be a little too much bit that would be endearing...this trajectory of Mariah is NOT a good sign and she needs to get out of it ASAP!
