Just came back from a trip to LA and Las Vegas. We took a sound bath at the Integratron and the Mariah concert. Both of them should be combined, really.
And then I got Grafitti Bridge on vinyl just because it works so well with the book cover of photos of Elizabeth Taylor’s house by Catherine Opie.
Mary squirted me and has a behind the scenes shot:
Very much into the new Kelela song. Her album CUT 4 ME is coming out October 1st. The mixtape will also include an extended version of the previously released Bank Head.
Now, can Mariah hook up with the same producers? #dreaming
Feeling so #lambily today on Mariah’s anniversary.
And I just found this tropical remix of I’ll Be Lovin’ U Long Time.
My first purchase of 2013 are two colours of the Mariah Carey and OPI nail polish collection. Obviously 2013 is off to a great start!
I went for Can’t Let Go and Anti-Bleak. Can’t Let Go features liquid sand and the tiny sparkles are looking hot. The picture of the bottle is a little bit misleading as Can’t Let Go really is more of a purple shimmer.
And Ani-Bleak is so yummy it makes me want to lick my plum coloured finger tips every twelve minutes.
To keep the joy coming I’ll buy two more colours soon: Sprung and The Impossible. I’ll keep you updated. Btw, I’m really into liquid sand right now.
After I read the interview with Claire Boucher / Grimes (below) in which she mentions that she had a 4:20 Mariah Fantasy and that MC is her favourite singer, I couldn’t be skeptical any longer. And I mean about what? The Montreal native has just released a gay-impact video to the pop hit single Oblivion featuring her naturally high-pitched voice.
There is only one wish: In the last scene of the video, where Claire is wearing a hoodie and then turning around, facing the camera, wouldn’t it been cute if she wore a skull mask – as a reference to the Visions album cover?
On a side note: What is happening to me? I’m listening to more and more Canadian music. First The Weeknd, now Grimes. What’s next? Bieber?
Claire Boucher: (…) Mariah Carey is my favorite singer because her voice sounds utterly groundless. It’s not even a human voice; it almost sounds mechanical.
Pitchfork: How did you first get into Mariah?
Claire Boucher: In 2007 or 2008, I started listening to R&B on this road trip with my dad because we couldn’t agree on anything else. I smoked weed and listened to “Fantasy” and felt something I’d never felt before [laughs]– yeah, that makes me sound so ignorant. But then I slowly started gravitating more toward female singers, because I was able to relate. In medieval Christian thought, it was assumed that the better you were as a singer, the purer your heart was. I don’t necessarily think that’s true, but Mariah Carey has the voice of someone who has never done evil. (source)
Obviously, there haven’t been enough MC updates on here recently. This morning Mariah was on Good Morning America tv show and tweeted this picture.
Clearly, Mariah’s twins are bout to pop any day now. I can’t wait for her to announce the names.
MC recently tweeted the picture above. Butterfly dem babies!
