MariahTalks About Tennessee

Seven years after making what is widely regarded as one of the worst movies ever, Mariah Carey is back with another road-trip flick.

But her new movie, "Tennessee," has little in common with 2001's "Glitter."

Premiering at New York's Tribeca Film Festival last Saturday, it follows two brothers seeking their estranged father. On their travels, they meet Krystal, a waitress played by Carey.

"Mariah said, 'This is going to be refreshing for me; this is actually something that I want,' even knowing that it was a gritty, hard shoot," director Aaron Woodley told Reuters in an interview. "Some people even told me that they forgot it was Mariah Carey when they were watching the film."

In 2001, Carey released the semi-autobiographical film "Glitter," which was a commercial and critical flop. She also appeared on MTV's Total Request Live, nearly disrobing in front of a baffled Carson Daly, amid rumors of a nervous breakdown.

Carey, 38, has spent the years since atoning.

"The whole 'Glitter' experience was very, very hard to go through, but I learned a lot from it," she said in a statement.

In 2005, the Long Island, New York native made a big comeback with her multiplatinum album "The Emancipation of Mimi" and won rave reviews for her performance in "WiseGirls," a comedy-drama that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

But that didn't stop him from offering her the lead female role. Daniels, producer of the Oscar-winning film "Monster's Ball," said he saw Carey in "WiseGirls" and decided "it was clear that she's a very talented actress."

Publicity Stunt or The Real Deal?

What do you lambs think of MC and Nick Cannon? Publicity for her new album and video's featuring the actor, or just fun publicity since MC had been black listed by the paparazzi (yay!!!) Now there is enough proof to me that suggest they could be dating or in the new stages of dating and there is still not evidence to prove they are...time will tell!?

MC and Nick leaving Oprah studios together:

articles about Mariah and Nick in the last few weeks:

In her current single, "Touch My Body," Mariah Carey jokes about a secret, romantic rendezvous. But is the pop singer having a real one?

Carey's rep denied to PEOPLE last week that the singer and actor Nick Cannon are dating, but the duo looked cozy at a party Monday night in Las Vegas.

After landing by private jet, the pair headed straight to Privé Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood, where Cannon, who stars in one of Carey's videos, was scheduled to deejay. Making their way to a VIP table, the pop diva whispered into Cannon's ear just before he took to the turntables.

With her BFF Da Brat by her side, Carey – wearing over-sized sunglasses and dressed in all-black – danced to the music as she sipped water and white wine, then feasted on hamburgers, chicken fingers and French fries. And for dessert? A chocolate cake for Da Brat, who was celebrating her 34th birthday.

"We have a very special person in the house tonight," Cannon called out on the microphone. "Happy birthday, Brat."

He also seemed to give Carey a "secret" shout-out. Carey stood up on the back of the booth and raised her wine glass when Cannon put on Jay-Z's "Public Service Announcement" and sang along with the lyrics, "I got the hottest chick in the game."

Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon Stir Engagement Rumors

Wearing a humongous, gleaming ring on her left hand, Mariah Carey stayed close to Nick Cannon at the afterparty for her new film, Tennessee, on Saturday night.

The pair held hands at the bash at Cadillac Lounge at Tenjune, which followed the movie's premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. The two also looked cozy in Vegas on April 14. When asked about a possible engagement, Cannon's rep had no comment; Carey's was unable to be reached for comment.

Asked what he loved about Carey, Cannon, 27, told PEOPLE: "Everything." He was at her side from 8 p.m. to about 10:45 p.m. in Tenjune's VIP room, where they were joined by her BFF, Da Brat. Zoe Kravitz and Ben Kingsley also stopped by.

Meanwhile, before the premiere, Carey played it coy, saying she only has eyes for one male: Jack, her Jack Russell terrier.

"I'm in love with my dog," said the singer, 39. "He is my special someone. I love spending time with him."

Even when love hurts her adoration stays strong: Carey wore a pink Hello Kitty band-aid on her hand at the premiere, explaining that Jack "accidentally bit me."

In her new film, she plays Krystal, a troubled diner waitress and aspiring singer who tackles personal demons on a road trip to Tennessee.

"This is something very close to my heart," she said of her first major role since the 2001 bomb Glitter. "I'm very grateful to be here tonight. Some people come into our lives and take a chance, someone like Lee Daniels," who produced Tennessee.

"I feel that everything happens for a reason," says Carey.


Mariah Carey And Nick Cannon Play 'Cat-And-Mouse' At Tribeca

The pressure is piling on Mariah Carey to confirm her romance with actor Nick Cannon, after they played a cat-and-mouse game at the Tribeca Film Festival to avoid being spotted together. Both stars had movies premiering at the event on Saturday night; Cannon's basketball film Ball Don't Lie and Carey's Tennessee.

They duly took to the red carpet to promote their own pictures in different parts of town - but Cannon dashed past photographers and reporters at his big night, avoiding questions about his relationship with the superstar. He then skipped his own afterparty, so he could join Carey at the Tenjune bash to celebrate Tennessee. The pair then embarked on a clever game of hide and seek and managed to avoid the prying eyes of the press and paparazzi, shying away in a V.I.P. section.

The pair are rumored to have got together after Cannon appeared in a video for Carey's new album E=MC2. They have since been spotted together partying in Las Vegas and are reported to be traveling to the Cannes Film Festival next month. However friends claim Carey is unlikely to speak out about the romance, because she loves keeping relationships under wraps.

A pal recently said, "Mariah is the master when it comes to keeping her relationships secret. Even though she's a big star, she likes to keep her private life to herself."

Carey's exes include record boss Tommy Mottola, rapper Eminem and singer Luis Miguel. Cannon was last known to be dating actress Zulay Henao, after breaking off his engagement to model Selita Ebanks.

his Just In: Mariah and Nick Together!
Categories: romance, viva las vegas, music

What is going on with Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon?

They were reportedly getting cozy in Las Vegas this past weekend, and now I just spotted the two of them together at the Beverly Hills Hotel!

The pair were sitting in the backseat of a very large black Bentley stopped at the entrance of the hotel, which was preventing other cars from coming and going. Not sure what the deal was, but the two stayed put as a couple of gals from their entourage kept getting in and out of the car.

Carey, 39, and Cannon, 27, never left the luxury sedan and were finally whisked away by their driver around 8:30 p.m.

The songbird performed earlier on the night on American Idol. None of my sources saw Cannon at Idol, so it's unclear if he was there.

People magazine reported earlier this week that Carey and Cannon hung out in Vegas on Monday night after taking a private jet to Sin City together. They appeared quite friendly at Privé at Planet Hollywood, where Nick was deejaying.

The two met in March, when Cannon made a cameo in one of her music videos.

E! News

comments? haha

I can't Even Know What To Say: Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey??

Engaged? NOT! but it's a funny thought right! Rumors have run wild about rumors of a Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey engagement. Now you real MC fans know MC isn't the one to be running down the aisle in a hurry, though the pair may be casually dating-that much seems apparent...but marriage NO WAY! Nick glowed to MTV news addressing the rumors and his status with Ms. Carey

Nick Cannon Squirms When Asked About Mariah Carey Engagement Rumors, Says She's A 'Good Friend'

Is Mariah Carey wearing actor Nick Cannon's engagement ring?

Well, based on sightings of the two holding hands - and photos of Carey wearing a big ring Saturday night during a New York afterparty for her new film, "Tennessee" - various media reports, including one that appeared on People.com Monday (April 28), suggest that she may be.

So, when Cannon stopped by the MTV News offices Monday to promote his film "Ball Don't Lie," we just had to ask him about his relationship with the pop diva.

First, the actor danced around our questions about the Carey rumors, saying that the singer's "a great person."

When pressed for more, he positively squirmed, adding, "I can't even know what to say. She's probably the most festive, remarkable person I've ever met. Good friend." When pressed further about the rumors, he said, "Rumors happen. They do."

Carey has long been rumored to be dating executive Mark Sudack, a member of her management team, but buzz about her and Cannon gained momentum on April 15, when People.com ran a piece entitled "Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's Night Out in Vegas." The article claimed that the two flew into Sin City on a private jet and were later spotted at a nightclub, getting "cozy" at one of the VIP tables.

Then, on Monday, People.com added more fuel to the fire, claiming that Carey was seen sporting a "humongous, gleaming ring" at the afterparty. The report further claims the two held hands for most of the soiree, and that they barely left each other's sides all evening.

Whether or not it's all a bunch of hoo-hah, when asked by MTV News about a possible engagement, spokespeople for both Cannon and Carey had no comment.

*coughs* don't they always say "oh we are just good friends" hehe, Nick and Mariah's rep are yet to comment! lol hilarious! They are so cute right!

E new reports Mariah's Medical Records Were Also "Glanced" At

Los Angeles (E! Online) - It's fast becoming the hottest list in town-but one that celebrities definitely don't want to be on.

Following news that Britney Spears, Farrah Fawcett and Maria Shriver all had their private medical records pried on by unauthorized staffers at the UCLA Medical Center comes word that Tom Cruise, Mariah Carey, George Harrison and Mamas and the Papas mastermind John Phillips also had their files snooped.

A former employee of the facility, who was one of a group of workers fired back in 1995 for sneaking a peek at celebrity records, told the Los Angeles Times that the current wave of file breaches is hardly the security glitch the hospital is making it out to be.

"People knew that we were looking up celebrities and other patients," James Duckstad, who personally copped to having, "out of boredom," perused Cruise's and Dom DeLuise's records during his time at the hospital, told the newspaper.

"It was news throughout the whole hospital that employees were fired for screwing around in the computer. This was in 1995, and here we are 13 years later-and either they didn't follow the policy or people didn't take it that seriously."

The 1995 incident was hardly an anomaly.

back in 2001, Carey's records were improperly accessed by a psychiatric nurse, who not only glanced at the then-patient's file but asked the singer for her autograph and showed it to teenage patients. The nurse was subsequently fired


Rave Reviews For E=MC²

Entertainment Weekly

Mariah Carey
E=MC² (Island Def Jam)

Winning Formula. Mariah Carey's E=MC² adds up to an aural success, offering a smart mix of dance and drama.

Daydream. Butterfly. Rainbow. Glitter. No, those aren't the names of Barbie's pet ponies, they're the ridiculously saccharine titles of Mariah Carey's albums from 1995 to 2001. So when she called her 10th studio CD The Emancipation of Mimi three years ago, it was clear that she intended to drop the cutesy shtick, let down her weave, and start getting real. It was a clever move.

Emancipation was the lucky strike that updated Carey's sound with bass-heavy flavor and reversed the downward spiral of her sales. Now, with E=MC²--another bold title--she's out to prove that her comeback was no fluke.

Of course, it's doubtful that Carey is a secret admirer of Einstein's theory of relativity, but one thing's for sure: The golden-throated diva has discovered a formula that works. Not unlike Emancipation, E=MC² finds Carey stacking the deck with the hottest producers and guest artist in urban music (Jermaine Dupri, StarGate, T-Pain, Damian Marley, Young Jeezy). The result is a largely enjoyable mix of flirtatious club jams, midtempo love songs, and emotional ballads anchored by hip-hop beats that handsomely showcase the singer's powerful vocal chops.

Ever the party girl, Carey opens the album with the sleek and seductive "Migrate," where she imagines getting buzzed on pinot grigio during a night out with the ladies. Other dancefloor anthems include "I'll Be Lovin' U Long Time" and "O.O.C.," which, for all of their pop polish, never lose their soulful spirit. But it's not all about velvet ropes and playful come-ons; notably, Carey suffers from a major love hangover on "Side Effects," a synthy cautionary tale about an abusive relationship. "Wakin' up scared some nights still dreaming 'bout the violent times," she sings with outspoken intensity.

And yet Carey remains a romantic at heart. With the ballads "Love Story" and "Last Kiss," she reunites with Dupri to recapture the passionate splendor of 2005's "We Belong Together." It's unfortunate, then, that E=MC² closes with its only missteps, the somber elegy "Bye Bye"--an odd choice for the follow-up single to the cheeky hit "Touch My Body"--and the preachy gospel hymn "I Wish You Well" (this CD's version of Emancipation's "Fly Like a Bird"). Still, for an artist whose career was all but dead four years ago, Carey is wise to play it safe by building on the finest elements of her last CD. Were it not for the final two tracks, she could've gotten away with calling this album Treasure.

Mariah Carey

Pop goddess Mariah Carey scaled Oympian heights with her last album 2005's Grammy-winning, 6-million-selling The Emancipation of Mimi. Certainly, E=MC² doesn't equal its predecessor. Still, this is a satisfying follow-up, heavy on hip-hop-flavored midtempo jams (like the irressistible No. 1 hit "Touch My Body") and beat-driven ballads (best is the pretty, piano-laced "I Stay In Love"). The disc occasionally strays from that formula on cuts like the churchy closer "I Wish You Well."

But the highlight is "Side Effects," the CD's darkest and most personal track, which seems to allude to Carey's failed marriage to music exec Tommy Mottola: "Sleeping with the enemy/Aware that he was smothering every last part of me." Vaguely menacing, it shows that even pop goddesses have their demons.

Mariah Carey

After bizarre meltdowns and questionable career choices early in this decade, Mariah Carey came back with a bang in 2005 with her album The Emancipation of Mimi, which gave us the hits Shake It Off, Don't Forget About Us and We Belong Together. Now, the songbird proves her comeback was no fluke with E=MC².

Carey has toned down her five-octave range a bit, but purists need not worry -- her voice has lost none of its power.

The album starts off poorly, with the monotone Migrate offering wannabe hip-hop lines such as "From the car into the club we migrate/From the bar to VIP we migrate/From the party to the afterparty migrate/Afterparty to hotel -- migrate" and a stunted, hesitant rap by T-Pain. But the first single, the slinky slow jam Touch My Body, unleashes Mariah's inner vamp. It's a shameless sex anthem, with talk of Mariah wrapping her legs around a guy's waist and begging for him to "give me what I deserve," but somehow, her angelic voice makes it all sound almost innocent.

On Cruise Control, Mariah teams up with new-school reggae royalty Damian Marley, who contributes a short but rhythmic rap. The song is more than a bit silly -- it spells out C-R-U-I-S-E control, for some reason, and Mariah tries to pull off a Jamaican accent ("He's the flyest ting") -- but it's pleasing and flows nicely. I'm That Chick cops the slick, cool funk of Forget Me Nots -- its cleverly minimalist bassline somehow uses exactly one note, but perfectly anchors the groove. The appealing ballad Last Kiss serves up Mariah's trademark hopeful romance: "This feeling is too good to miss/Ain't no kiss ever gonna be our last kiss," while Love Story aims for the anthemic heft of We Belong Together and doesn't miss by much.

But the album's high point finds Mariah softly and sweetly lamenting the loss of any kind of loved one on the truly touching Bye Bye: "This is for my peoples who just lost somebody/Your best friend, your baby, your man or your lady/Put your hand way up high/We will never say bye."

Thankfully, it looks like we won't be saying "bye" to Mariah for a long time.

Pod Picks: Touch My Body, Last Kiss, Bye Bye.

No Marvin-Mariah duet

In a Wednesday conference call with reporters, American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe offered updates on this year's "Idol Gives Back" fundraising effort, to air Wednesday, April 9.

Lythgoe cleared the air on talk that Mariah Carey would perform a duet with the late Marvin Gaye, a la Celine Dion and Elvis Presley a year ago. "Unfortunately, it's not [happening]," he shared. "We couldn't get the rights to music with Marvin, so we had to cancel it."

So as I reported it, they had to axe! That sucks! :(
