Some Brain-on-Vacation Doodling…

As a rule, I don’t publish my doodles. They should be found no place other than my to-be-shredded-in-the-future tray, and all the new ones should follow their brethren to the gallows. They aren’t pretty and they aren’t happy – and when has the world been kind to the ugly and the unhappy?

And yet, I couldn’t bring myself to throw this one away, because it tells a story in which I once played a part.

I’ll let you read the story in these overlapping, untidy lines.

Mariah Carey’s Shortest Biography on the Web!

As is usual, here’s the shortest biography of Ms. Mariah Carey that you can find on the World Wide Web.
Mariah Carey is 41 (Believe it or not,) she is a hip-hop and pop singer, who has sold more than 175 million copies of her records. She’s won 5 Grammy Awards (Grammys)! Mariah Carey was born in 1970, and 3 years after he birth, her parents divorced. She became acquainted with the bitter taste of racism quite early in her childhood.

Her rise to fame began when Mottola, who she met at a party, saw her demo tape (pushed to him by Brenda Starr for whom Mariah Carey sang as a backup singer) and signed her up for a recording contract.

Her first album was called “Mariah Carey” and for it, she received the Best New Artist Grammy.

Mariah Carey’s Personal Life:

Mariah Carey married Tommy Mottola in 1993 and divorced him 1994 because she found Mottola “controlling.”


(There are countries where you’d be laughed upon if you cited that as a reason for a divorce – but celebs are measured by a different cultural yardstick, I guess.)

Around 2001, she separated from Columbia Records and signed a contract with Virgin Records.This period was bad for her and she suffered a sort of nervous breakdown in July 2001.The following years were a busy time for Carey – In 2008, she married once again. Her new husband was Nick Cannon.

Mariah Carey’s Acting Life:

She’s worked in The Bachelor, Glitter (an autobiographical sort of film – for which she got the Golden Raspberry Award – the Razzy – for being the worst actress – same as Sandra Bullock this past year.), and some others. In 2009, she worked in Precious, a movie for which she got a Breakthrough performance award.

Mariah Carey’s Albums:

  • Mariah Carey
  • Emotions
  • Music Box
  • Merry Christmas
  • Butterfly
  • Rainbow
  • Glitter
  • The Emancipation of Mimi
  • MTV Unplugged

(This isn’t a complete list – you can find the complete list of Mariah Carey’s Albums here.)

The point to note is that Mariah Carey’s vocal cords aren’t normal. She was lucky that her mom didn’t deposit her in a hospital or she’d have never sung – instead, she might’ve ended up with some sort of psychological issue (an inferiority complex about her voice), which could’ve ensured that she never sang.

See my point?
