No, Mariah. Noooooooo!
This is a note that Mariah Carey tried to hit at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. It exists somewhere between sonar blip and dog whistle. We see you though, Mariah. The effort is there. She even tried a second time.
Mariah Carey’s decline is a well-documented catastrophe, which is ultimately saddening because she remains one of music’s greatest voices at her best. Unfortunately, her withering reputation and weakening vocal chords are igniting flames of doubt before she can put out each fire. Jon Caramanica of The New York Times penned a dreary review of Carey’s Vegas residency — more a swan song for a fallen star than a new frontier.
