  1. Mariah Carey made headlines last year with the reveal of Chick, an alt-rock group she created at the peak of her fame in 1995 which went undiscovered for years. Now, she's made headlines again with the reveal that the band may return - with an unlikely frontwoman. Mariah initially created Chick during the sessions for the Daydream album in 1995, inspired by the likes of female rock singer-songwriters such as Blondie and Pat Benatar. At the time, the harder, grungier sessions made a welcome respite from the highly controlled, perfect image that Mariah had cultivated during her R&B work
  2. Watch the video version of this article here! With a voice like Mariah Carey's, one might wonder why she or her label bothers with any kind of imagery at all. It would have been easy to go down the Susan Boyle route and focus exclusively on Mariah's famously breathtaking vocals, to the exclusion of how she looks; and indeed, it may be that very line of reasoning that accounts for the live performances that double as official music videos for tracks like 'I'll Be There', 'Open Eyes' and 'If It's Over'. Luckily for us, Mariah for the most part has gone a different route, appearin
  3. “I don’t know her.” It was the throwaway sentence - delivered with seeming sincerity, a simpering smile and an innocent nod of the head that was either sarcastic or supportive depending on interpretation - that went on to become one of the Internet’s first real memes. Mariah Carey’s simple proclamation, in response to an interviewer's question about Jennifer Lopez, is one of the finest textbook definitions of shade that anyone could ever ask for. And yet, behind those four words is a world of pain, heartbreak and jealousy that most people know nothing about. It’s a world that reads l
  4. If 2018's list of the best songs of the year shows us anything, it's that the ability to define pop music in the 21st century is becoming increasingly more difficult. Gone are the days when record label executives and radio DJ's defined the sound of the summer in highly organised meetings; nowadays, listeners are willing and able to seek out their own finds, creating intimate emotional bonds with their favourite discoveries that last long after their songs end. Our list of 2018's greatest albums reinforces that idea, bouncing between rock, hip-hop, R&B and dance effortlessly. What's s
  5. Every year around this time, the #PopHatesFlops community comes together to celebrate the year in pop music and to compile our annual list of our favourite songs of the year. While previous years lists have been microcosms of the genres that populated them - last year focused heavily on country-pop, while 2016 was big on slinky synthpop and 2015 was loving the tropical pop trend - this year's list is remarkable for it's lack of trendiness, showing that in 2018 there's no longer any such thing as an era in pop music. It's a testament to how fractured the industry is in the age of streaming apps
  6. Mariah Carey has become well known in recent years for her glamorous styling, lavish lifestyle and "diva"-like behaviour. But according to the singer, there's another side to her which barely anyone has seen - up until now. In a twist that seems both unexpected and explains a lot, Carey has confirmed a decades long struggle with bipolar disorder in an interview with People Magazine. She was first diagnosed with the disorder in 2001, when she went to rehab following a well-publicised public meltdown. However, she lived in denial for a number of years before deciding to seek help recently.
  7. In some ways, 2008 was pretty similiar to 2018. A shock candidate had just entered the White House, bypassing Hillary Clinton who people thought was a sure thing. The worldwide economy was still at breaking point, there were still tensions in the Middle East, and global warming was still hugely under-recognised. Betty White was still popular, and O.J. Simpson was still headed straight for priosn. But in other ways, 2008 was a completely different time from the one we're now living in. Politically, things were much more liberal - we had Barrack Obama in office instead of Donald Trump - and
  8. When it comes to pop music, most of us have set ideas of what we want to hear. Pop music in 2017 is constantly changing, and that necessitates a song which will either hit right in the middle of whatever trend is whirlwinding through the genre at any given moment, or one that will set the zeitgeist for what we can expect for the next few months in terms of production. Pop music is designed to give the illusion of edginess and freshness, even while it not-so-secretly borrows all of it's creativity from genres long-established. When it comes to Christmas songs, however, the rules are differ
  9. The legendary Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez cover Paper Magazine's Special Las Vegas Edition this month. Las Vegas is known for hiring A-list artists to do residencies in particular hotels. If one decides to go to Las Vegas, they can pick from such artists as Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Celine Dion and more. Except for Mariah and JLo, there are also covers with Ricky Martin and Backstreet Boys (but who really cares about them ). Read Mariah's article below: And here's J. Lo's article: Check out these amazing photoshoots the divas did f
  10. Mariah Carey is no stranger to acting, but it seems that she has yet to learn the basic principles of on-set behaviour. For if news from her recent co-stars on comedy film The House is anything to go by, Carey's on-set diva behaviour inconvenienced the crew and "ruined" her cameo, which has been cut from the final edit of the film. The tea was first spilt by Rob Huebel, who alluded to on-set issues with Carey in an interview with Entertainment Weekly Radio. "We did some re-shoots with a pop star named Mariah Carey," he said at the time. "It did not go well. Fucking what is going on with h
  11. From that Christmas forward, and for every one after, God claimed one thing to be true: the holidays would not begin until Mariah Carey sang 'All I Want For Christmas Is You'. - (Corinthians, 16:2) It wasn't her all time best performance of the classic - she was clearly struggling to hit some of the higher notes, even with a prominent backing track which she harmonised with during her infamous falsetto moment in the final chorus - but Mariah Carey's performance still achieved it's yearly goal of bringing Christmas cheer to the masses when she performed it on the VH1 special Divas: An Unsi
  12. Mariah's bitchy black-haired alter ego is back! For those of you who don't know about Bianca, see her twisted history with Mariah here. And in other Mariah news...
  13. The Christmas season is upon us, which means that everytime you venture out in the cold to your local mall, workplace or church you'll be blasted with the hollow sounds of sanctimonious carols and tinny holiday tunes that have been covered by as many popstars as Taylor Swift in an average calendar year. If you're looking to escape the sounds of carolers at your door, look no further: PHF has the answer for you! We asked our most-loved members (and @trayertrash) for their absolute favourite holiday anthems, compiled them into a list, and checked it twice. Then we put a brand new bow on it
