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)
