Mariah Carey

While Christmas seems to begin earlier and earlier these days, the 1st of December is the day you can let yourself embrace it. Now that we’ve experienced one day of real Christmas so far, here is what else will happen this month…

1. You wake up and realise….CHRISTMAS FM IS LIVE!!

2. As you dig out your most subtle Christmas jumper (it is only the 2nd after all, let’s not lose the run of ourselves) you listen to Mariah Carey sing about what she want for Christmas and it’s amazing.

3. You leave your house and fully embrace that sharp cold, feeling smug because you remembered your gloves and hat – because it’s December now.

4. It’s time to pop into your favourite coffee shop and order the most outlandish Christmas themed coffee they have for the most extortionate price. “Can I have a ginger-bread hot chocolate with a shot of the candy-cane peppermint syrup and some marshmallow with whipped cream? Skimmed milk, thanks.” And then we look exactly like the gif below. 

5. You suffer a mild heart attack as you sit down and plan a list of all your Christmas presents. The budget is €10.50 per family member, totally doable. Boyfriend budget is €150. You know your priorities.

6. You forget said list and dig it out on the 17th December, have another mild heart attack and leg it into town. You would get the bus but you don’t have time to wait for it not to arrive.

7. Needless to say, you chose the wrong day to shop. In fact, any day after the 8th is just wrong. Is there a teacher strike again? Is it Black Friday? What is this?

8. You promise your mum you are going to cook the starter and the dessert for Christmas dinner, only to realise you don’t finish work until Christmas Eve. It’s the 23rd now, when is the right time to let her know? Hmm…

9. You promise you're going to get a tree up in the apartment this year – you WILL do it! And you do, only to leave it there till Easter. Why can't we be the whole package of a real adult? They make it seem so easy. 

10. Every single ad on TV makes you cry. Even the one about the teenager who gets a phone and then lays his head on his mum's shoulder! *sob*


Trying to pick a favourite Christmas song ain’t easy, especially when there are so many classics to choose from.

However, there is one we can’t help but sing (screech) along to every time it is on the radio.

You know Christmas is truly here when you hear Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You, and the Grammy award-winning artists is celebrating quite the achievement this year.

The songstress has claimed the #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with her immortal holiday classic All I Want For Christmas Is You, 25 years after the original release.

This marks the first time in the song’s 25-year history it captured #1 on the respective chart after ascending to #3 in 2018. 

It also stands out as her 19th number one entry on the Hot 100, making history as the most Hot 100 #1’s by a solo artist ever and the second most Hot 100 #1’s by any artist – breaking a tie with Elvis Presley and one behind The Beatles.

Mariah even earned a Guinness World Record for the highest-charting holiday (Christmas/New Year) song on the Billboard Hot 100 by a solo artist.

The Queen of Christmas shines brighter, bigger, and bolder than ever.

If anyone needs us we’ll be trying to reach that famous high note and failing miserably.


Winter isn’t the same without Christmas FM so it is safe to say we cannot wait for it to return to the airwaves later this month.

The festive radio station is set to return very soon. They confirmed that they will be back on air on November 28.

Tune in to sing along to some of your favourite Christmas classics and hear a host of familiar radio voices, who will be volunteering their time to bring you round-the-clock Christmas tunes and sharing special Christmas memories and festive updates. The station will be broadcasting live on the radio and online at www.christmasfm.com.

Mariah Carey has been around for a long time; long enough for her kids to be singing her early noughties hits back to her as she wins an icon award.

Her twins, who she shares with ex-husband Nick Cannon, were in the audience cheering her on as she sang a medley of hits like Hero, A No No, Always Be My Baby and We Belong Together.

Eight-year-old Monroe and Morrocan were clearly beaming with pride as their 48-year-old mum took home the Icon Award at the Billboard Music Awards last night.

The veteran singer received a toast worthy of a queen after Jennifer Hudson introduced the star onstage. Carey delivered a hilarious and emotional speech and didn't shy away from the bumps she's hit along the way'

“Icon? I really don’t think of myself in that way. I started making music out of a necessity- to survive and to express myself. I just wanted to create something so I could feel worthy of existing," she said.

"If I’ve learned anything, anything at all in this life, it’s that truly all things are possible with God."


A post shared by Mariah Carey (@mariahcarey) on

"Without getting into all the drama, all the ups and downs of my career- We’ve all seen them; we all make mistakes; there’s been a few memes- I guess I’ve always felt like an outsider: someone who doesn’t quite belong anywhere," she continued.

She referenced her loneliness in the industry;

"I still feel like that lost, interracial child who had a lot of nerve to believe I can succeed at anything at all in this world. But, and this is the truth, I did believe because I had to."

As usual, the iconic star delivered more meme material, throwing a tissue into the crowd before her speech began;

"The truth is: I’ve dedicated my life to my music, my saving grace and to my fans, who are unlike any other entity that I’ve ever known. They’ve lifted me out of the depths of hell and brought me out with their devotion and love."

She earnestly thanked her fans and supporters for helping her through the tough times;

"I want to thank all the people who’ve been with me on this journey through the highs and lows, through the struggles –through your struggles and mine."

"To anybody who doesn’t allow themselves to be broken, and keeps getting up, and keeps holding on, and keeps standing tall, and keeps on believing, and keeps rising, I celebrate you tonight," she said, encouraging her followers to keep going.

"And to anyone who’s ever told me that a song I wrote helped save your life, I thank you because you saved mine, and I’ll be eternally grateful.”


Listen up, Mariah fans.

While mental health issues are being discussed more and more often in public forums, stigma still remains that can lead people to feel alone when they most need help.

Pop icon Mariah Carey is certainly familiar with this feeling of isolation.

She takes medication and goes to therapy for bipolar II disorder, which involves it involves at least one episode of major depression and at least one episode of hypomania (less severe than a full manic episode, but still disrupts sleep and involves hyperactivity).

However, she hasn't always felt comfortable with her diagnosis.

When she first discovered she was bipolar back in 2001, “I didn’t want to believe it,” Mariah told People.

Thankfully, the Grammy Award-winner is now receiving the treatment she needs after what she has deemed 'the hardest couple of years I’ve been through'.


A post shared by Mariah Carey (@mariahcarey) on

“Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me. It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn’t do that anymore," the mum admitted. 

"I sought and received treatment, I put positive people around me and I got back to doing what I love — writing songs and making music.”

The singer says that between therapy and medication, she's feeling like she has found balance in her life.

“I’m actually taking medication that seems to be pretty good. It’s not making me feel too tired or sluggish or anything like that. Finding the proper balance is what is most important,” Mariah said.

The singer explained that at first, she thought she had a severe sleep disorder.

“But it wasn’t normal insomnia and I wasn’t lying awake counting sheep," the vocal sensation recalled.

"I was working and working and working … I was irritable and in constant fear of letting people down. It turns out that I was experiencing a form of mania. Eventually, I would just hit a wall.

"I guess my depressive episodes were characterised by having very low energy. I would feel so lonely and sad — even guilty that I wasn’t doing what I needed to be doing for my career.”

Now, though, Mariah says she is 'in a really good place right now, where I’m comfortable discussing my struggles with bipolar II disorder'.

"I’m hopeful we can get to a place where the stigma is lifted from people going through anything alone," she told People

"It can be incredibly isolating. It does not have to define you and I refuse to allow it to define me or control me.”

We are happy to hear that Mariah is doing well, and we're sure her story is giving hope to others dealing with their own mental health.


Queen of pop Mariah Carey has hinted at the possibility of new music with a St. Patrick's Day themed Instagram post. 

The picture shows the singer in a recording studio which had been decked out in green balloons, along with the caption: "Pon de studio. Happy St. Patrick's Day!"

It's thought Mariah is  currently recording material for her 15th studio album. If this is the case, the new album will be her first release since 2014's Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse. 


Pon de studio  Happy St. Patrick's Day!  #happystpatricksday

It's safe to say that fans can't wait ot hear more from the music icon, with many taking to the comments to express their excitement.

And honestly, who could blame them? Can you imagine the scene if came to Dublin on a tour of the new album? 

Meanwhile it looks like the diva really got into the spirit of Paddy's Day, as earlier in the day she posted an adorable snap of her dog, kitted out in green beads and a tiny top hat that read: "I'm a wee bit Irish". 


I'm a wee bit Irish!  Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Mariah Carey is the indisputable queen of Christmas, with her iconic All I Want For Christmas song dominating the charts every year. 

The pop sensation revealed earlier this year that her classic tune was being converted into a movie, and now Mariah has shared that another movie is in the works. 

The Star is set to be a complete Christmas Classic, telling the story of the first every Christmas through the animated eyes of the animals involved. 

Mariah took to Twitter to leak the trailer, and told fans that she was excited for them to see it this holiday season. 

She also hinted that she would be singing a new song for the film. 

The trailer revealed that both Opera and Kelly Clarkson would also be featuring in the upcoming flick. 

It's definitely too early to be excited for Xmas, but with two new cosy films to look forward to, we're kind of hankering for fairy lights and eggnog. 

Until then, we'll be following Mariah in the hopes of getting a sneak preview of her new song…


Mariah Carey is basically the queen of glam, and has now decided to open a beauty company.

The singer and her manager, Stella Bulochnikov, are planning to open their first beauty parlour in Beverly Hills.

An insider told Page Six: "Mariah and Stella are opening a business together, their own beauty company that they hope will feature their own products of makeup, skin care and fragrances.


A post shared by Mariah Carey (@mariahcarey) on

The performer and her team were spotted viewing empty retail spaces in Beverly Drive, and knowing Mariah, bigger is most definitely better.

The move comes after she launched a collection with MAC last year, and after its major success, sources believe she wants to launch her own line by the end of this year.


A post shared by Mariah Carey (@mariahcarey) on

However, her MAC collection wasn't the first venture she had into the beauty and fashion game.

Back in 2007, Elizabeth Arden released her hugely successful fragrance, M, and back in 2006 she released a jewellery and clothing line with Glamorized.

With all of this experience under her belt, it's no wonder she's launching a company of her own!



Lads, we don't know how we feel about this, and honestly, it all makes us just say 'huh?' in our heads.

Mariah Carey's All I want for Christmas is You is being made into a movie, but we're not really sure how it's going to work.

Apparently, the song will be brought to life through Mariah's voice and CGI animation (see… huh?).

The song, which is also a children's book, will centre around a young Ms Carey and her longing for a pet dog.

See if you can wrap your head around the synopsis: "When young Mariah sees a darling little puppy named Princess at the pet store, she suddenly knows exactly what she wants for Christmas.

"But before her Christmas wish can come true, she must prove that she can pet-sit Jack, a scraggly rascal of a dog; in fact, the worst dog in the county! Naughty Jack turns Mariah and her family’s Christmas preparations upside down in hilarious ways.

"Will Jack dash Mariah’s hopes for her dream puppy? Or will Christmas reveal how love works in surprising and mysterious ways?"

Glenn Ross, general manager and executive vice president, Universal 1440 Entertainment said:"Like the song itself, Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You is destined to become an enduring family holiday classic.

"It is packed with family fun, holiday spirit, poignant moments – and of course, Mariah Carey!”

Are we pessimists if we say we're still not on board?



Mariah Carey has a bit of a name for being high-maintenance. 

Mariah embraced her reputation as the ultimate pop diva by uploading some pretty unrealistic gym selfies this morning.

Posing on top of a step machine, it was the 46-year-old songstress' outfit that caught our eye.

While we would opt for an over sized T-shirt, leggings and runners, Mariah went for something little more glam.

The singer donned a pair of high heels from Rihanna's collab with Puma, booty shorts and fishnet tights for her fitness regime. 

We're not sure how many squats we could do in 5-inch stilettos. 


A video posted by Mariah Carey (@mariahcarey) on

Fans were quick to applaud the star for maintaining her high maintenance image, with one saying: "I want to be as extra as Mariah Carey wearing heels to the gym."

Even Rihanna commented on the star's "iconic" gym look, regramming the snap and captioning it "Yo I made it!"

The snaps come after the singer released her new single I Don't, so maybe Mariah is shaping up in preparation for a new tour?  


Mariah Carey has done it again, in yet another woeful performance which was blamed on ‘technical issues’.

Crowds gathered last night at Times Square, New York for Dick Clarke’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve hosted by Ryan Seacrest to hear the star sing.

Even surrounded by feathers, it was clear something wasn’t right with the lip sync as the star sang Auld Lang Syne.

Recognising the issue, Carey said “Well, Happy New Year! We can’t hear, but I’ll just get through the moment, okay.”

After strutting awkwardly across the stage, waiting for the issue to be rectified the star resolved to let the crowd sing before carrying on.

The mortified Carey finished by saying “That was… Amazing”.

She later brushed off the debacle in a tweet, “Shit happens. Have a happy and healthy new year everybody! Here's to making more headlines in 2017.”

Let us not forget what happened in 2014 at the tree lighting ceremony at Rockefeller Centre.

This was apparently due to ‘circumstances beyond her control’.
