Mariah Carey Talks Justin Bieber, Kids and Her New Album

Mariah C


Rick Campanelli sat down with Mariah Carey in New York City this week and the diva really lived up to her
name! Although she might have kept Rick in suspense for a while, the mom of two opened up about how motherhood’s changed her life, Justin Bieber and of course, her highly anticipated upcoming album.

Opening up about her one-time duet partner, The Biebs, Mariah says “I think that [Never Say Never] gave people greater insight,” before joking that she loves Justin, “but not that I need to sit here and promote him.”

With less than a month before the release date, Mariah, known for her perfectionism, tells Rick she’s still putting some finishing touches on her new album. “All I’m trying to do it get this album to completion and there’s just little things that are so important to me, but they are minute details that other people probably wouldn’t even notice,” she says. Adding that other people tend to not get it, saying, “they don’t care as much obviously!”

In regards to the pressure that comes with releasing a new album, Mariah says that it’s tough to tell when it’s on. “Here’s the thing,” she tells Rick, “sometimes you know when you have that and sometimes you don’t. I still want to be able to do things that make me happy. If a mid-tempo record makes me happy and it’s a bit of an old school, hip hop beat, then cool.”

And from her new baby to her 3-year-old twins, Morocco and Monroe, Mariah opens up about how she went from not wanting to have kids to loving motherhood! “I never thought I was going to have kids,” Mariah tells Rick. “I remember being a little girl and going ‘I don’t think I’m going to have babies when I grow up’ for a while I was probably convinced of that and I just realized things change and that’s what happens.”

Adding that motherhood has brought around new inspiration for her work, Mariah says her kids “give me a reason to live” and that she’s even written a song for them on her new album. “It’s called ‘Supernatural’,” she adds. That’s not all, it seems that talent may run in the family. “Them babies are on the song,” Mariah says. “And they were singing this one when they were just 2-years-old.”

“You’ll hear, I can’t give it away,” she adds. “Mainly it’s miss Monroe singing but Rocco is on there.” Watch the first part of Rick’s sitdown with Mariah Carey and be sure to tune-in to ET Canada tonight for part two!

OneRepublic’s new single ‘Love Runs Out’ leaks

American band OneRepublic continues promoting its third studio album ‘Native‘, released on digital retailers March 22, 2013 via Mosley and Interscope Records. The lead vocalist and songwriter of the band Ryan Tedder confirmed that they plan to edit a new song soon.
The track is officially called ‘Love Runs Out‘, it was planned as the first official single from the album but as the artist himself has said, he couldn’t figure out a good chorus for it, and finally the song was discarded and not included in the final album tracklist.
Near the first anniversary after the album’s release, the group has confirmed that the song is ready to be released in its final version. The song could be included in an upcoming reissue of the album. It will be released on digital retailers on April 14th.
