    I could see it back when she was singing about "Vision of Love" or being "sexy" in that "Breakdown" song, but now? Not only is the voice gone, but her lyrics are asinine, she doesn't dance, and her style is best described as "champagne in a SUV limo". Her music is now so mediocre and so many other people (including Madonna and Janet) are at least trying to be innovative and/or fresh. So what's the continued allure of Mariah? Seriously, I don't get it. Even Britney with all of her problems is (musically) more interesting than Mimi (I still say Britney's last album was quite good and much better than half the pop junk out now).

    Any thoughts???

    Never liked her music. Her voice was very good, but she should have followed her mother's footsteps and gone into opera.

    I recently bought the new CD and the one thing that is keeping Mariah hot is her producers and song writers. She sings songs that really touch your heart if you're in love or suffering from a recent break up. Thats her allure. Don't get caught up in "Touch My Body". Her CD has more quality ballads as well. I've always liked her but never considered myself a fan until her last album....which came out during the first time I was in a relationship. So ever since then, I've been a Mariah supporter. Check out the entire CD....its hot!

    several years ago,when i heard of "we belong together"of her,i was in deep touched,sound like what i was thinking that time.
    she has a awesome voice,and the producers and the songwriters help her a lot for sure as well.
    "i am stay in love"is my favourate at this moment as well.

    People hear this: "The whole is greater than the sum of the individual parts." Mariah is a perfect example of an artist that we can forgive and accept based on the totality of her career. yes, I saw the little girl on "Good Morning America" and she was tired and thin. The old vocal power was not there, and may have been gone for years, I don't know. Still she can touch us because we know her, and I believe she knows us too. I wish her the best and hope she can recover her edge, because it has been blunted.

    And might I commend Jackal for being willing to show natural chest hair which many of us are afraid or unwilling to do.
