Quotes On Mariah Carey

Posted by : foongpc | Friday, September 19, 2008 | Published in


In my last post, I talked about Mariah Carey, one of the most successful artistes of all time. She has been a source of inspiration to millions of people all over the world. People look up to her as the artiste to emulate, as was evidenced by hundreds of Mariah wannabees at the American Idols audition.

Now, there are people who dislike her and her music. I am certainly NOT one of them. Well, I guess you can't please everybody.

But let's hear what some of the most famous singers, producers and songwriters have to say about Mariah.

David Morales' photo from DJAlexLee
"I've never seen Mariah be unkind to anyone. She's the best person I’ve worked with on remixes. She's the one that I’ve spent the most time with." - David Morales, DJ, remixer and producer.

Usher's photo from Idolator
"I've been working so hard, I'm about to have a Mariah Carey" - Usher

Janet Jackson's photo from The Age
"I have met her [Carey] before and she's really cool and so funny. Everyone has been given the wrong impression of her, and maybe it is her doing. But you have to remember that celebrities are always in the spotlight and are sometimes forced to conduct them selves in a different way than they normally do. That's how it is in the business. I have met artists who are real divas, but Mariah Carey is not one of them. She is a very sweet person, and what nobody sees off camera is the real person she is on the inside." - Janet Jackson

Shania Twain's photo from Living La Vida Boca
"Mariah is very grounded, a smart and level-headed person. I don't understand why people criticize her intelligence when she can do something as miraculous as recover from a physical and exhaustion breakdown, a record label buy-out, a film flop, and a soundtrack whose sales has proven to have received little to no recognition and absolutely no promotion. She can't be that simple if she can make a come back the way she did. She hasn't been given enough credit in my opinion. She has to be some sort of a genius actually just to have focused on becoming a stronger person and not letting people like the media destroy her completely. There are some people out there that can't handle the pressure of being a celebrity and the criticism and knowing that besides success there is always failure that you have to lean to recover from, and Mariah has proven to be the type of person who doesn't let anyone or anything break her down. She knows how to keep her life on track and if that isn't intelligence then I don't know what is." - Shania Twain

Ashanti's photo from Ms Ashanti
"I was definitely always a fan of hers. We're on the same record label, so that's how it (the tour) came about. I met her in Miami and she's really cool. She's so down to earth and funny, which I didn't expect." - Ashanti

Missy Elliot's photo from kalamu.com
"MC is a funny girl and always makes me laugh no matter what. I love her!" - Missy Elliot

Celine Dion's photo from Celine Dion website
"If Mariah was to ask me to duet with her, I will travel immediately 20,000 km in order to sing with her for sure!" - Celine Dion

Brandy's photo from dyfuse
"Mariah showered me with flowers for a week and sent me to her private jet plane to ride and flew with her to the Billboard Music Awards." - Brandy

David Fumero's photo from abc medianet
"Mariah Carey wasn't what I thought. I expected her to be arrogant, but she wasn't. She was really great, really normal." - David Fumero (the model Mariah worked with in the "Honey" video)

Jessica Simpson's photo from newsday.com
"Oh, my Gosh! Can you imagine they're comparing you to her...I mean she's the BIGGEST SELLING ARTIST of the DECADE, and I admire her too." - Jessica Simpson

Diane Warren's photo from Deseret News
"She works really hard. No matter what she's done, there's a hunger there. She doesn't have to prove herself, but she feels like she does." - Diane Warren, best selling songwriter

Brian McKnight's photo from daylife
"It's one of the best duets (Whenever You Call with Mariah) I've done. Mariah is such a sweet and nice, wonderful person. She's very talented woman." - Brian McKnight

Toni Braxton's photo from Christmas CD Collection
"I really admire Mariah Carey. I think she's underrated, because she's a great producer, a wonderful writer, and no one gives her props for that. They always say 'Oh look, did you see what she had on?' And this and that. I'm like she's 30 years old, she's not 70 with breast hanging like chickens. She's young, she's beautiful, she has a great body. I just think she's wonderful, and I think people beat her up a lil' too much." - Toni Braxton

Christina Aguilera's photo from The Scented Salamander
"I discovered Mariah in my room one day listening to the radio, and as soon as 'VOL' came on, I ran downstairs going, 'Mommy, Mommy' -- I just found the GREATEST person in the world! I just heard the GREATEST NEW VOICE!!!" - Christina Aguilera

Whitney Houston's photo from Live & Loud KL
"We've never met or talked before. It was our first time working together. In the studio, we were laughing a lot and talking in between a song, we had a great time together. She's a vivid minded girl, she's a smart lady. I really like Mariah." - Whitney Houston

David Foster's photo from canada.com
"Working with Mariah was an extraordinary opportunity for me. It goes without saying that she's one of the world's greatest singers, but it was her musicianship that stunned me. She thinks like a record producer and lays her vocals down like a virtuoso guitarist. Singer, Songwriter, Producer Mariah is a triple treat. Working with her was a wonderful experience from beginning to end." - David Foster, Grammy Award Winning producer

Beyonce's photo from myplay.com
"Mariah's voice comes from God" - Beyonce

Patti LaBelle's photo from BV Entertainment
"She has a great voice. I don't know, I love her talent. I like her...So I said, 'would you like to do a show with me?' Before i can finish she said YES" - Patti LaBelle

Chris O'Donnell's photo from Celebrity-Socialite
"She's one of those popstars that's bigger than life. I've never really had to do an interview with her and everything, but just a normal conversation. She's cool, she's my age. She's from Long Island, NY. I know some people she went to high school with. She's a HUGE STAR. She showed up with her lil' entourage. You know...It's Mariah Carey. It's not just some actress you brought in..." - Chris O'Donnell

Brett Ratner's photo from nymag.com
"She does everything: she writes, she produces. People think she writes those songs just to sell records, but those songs come right from her heart." - Brett Ratner, director of "Heartbreaker", "I Still Believe" and "Thank God I Found You" videos

Britney Spears' photo from Top Web Directory
"When I was little I love listening to Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, and Michael Jackson...Yeah, I've always loved Mariah Carey, I guess because she writes her music, most of her music, and because she comes up with the BEST melodies. Her range is just from here to there, and she's probably my role model." - Britney Spears

Babyface's photo from AskMen.com
"Mariah Carey - A great producer, a great writer, a superb artist, but most of all...a good friend" - Babyface

    People who say bad comments about MC are just jealous.
    I love her and I've been listening to her songs for years.
    Her songs are full of life - when you're listening to her music you can see your life in it.
    I just love her voice - it's extraordinary. She's blessed because she's down to earth and humble.

    Have a nice day!

    I'd still love MC if she was arrogant! With such a beautiful voice like that, she deserves to be arrogant he he! Love most of her songs, esp the older ones. There's just too many fave songs of mine from MC! :):):)

    As they always say, don't judge a book by its cover...so you never really know what people are like until you get to know them well.

    lina, fortunately she isn't arrogant and maybe that's why her fans always stick with her through thick and thin!

    That gal's got an amazing voice and some serious talents, I admit.

    But I stopped liking her when she started flashing way too much boobies and flutter her eyelashes every other minute. She was much more likable when she was able to keep her clothes on.

    I still love her songs, but the diva herself, not so much.

    Wow! You betul-betul MC-freak foong. It's so un-sangka-able that you could stockpile a plethora of list on what the other celebrities actually said about MC. I salute you bro. Ha =)

    Yupe! I am not a fan of her. But certainly I am one of the millions who are captivated by her voice. =)

    missmall, as long as you still like her songs, that's fine with me : )

    tekkaus, it's not what you think lah! I did not stockpile all these quotes over the years. I did a little research on the internet and read some Mariah's fans sites - that's how I got all these quotes! : )

  18. foongpc said...

    acura, yeah her recent album has some of the nicest songs! : )

    bengbeng, well if you thought of her as a voice, that's good enough! : )

    suituapui, thank you, but you really don't have to force yourself, you know. It's OK if you don't like her. I can accept that because everyone has his or her own preference : )
