Mariah Carey Caught Lip-Syncing … Out Of Sync!

By  | 

Sheesh! This is rough to watch.

While at the Jazz and Blues Festival in Jamaica, Mariah Carey hit the stage to perform some of her old hits. Apparently, they’re so old that Mi Mi couldn’t be bothered to remember the words. To call this a lip-syncing fail would be an understatement, but don’t take our word for it, just watch.

Hoepfully, this isn’t a precursor to her upcoming residency at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. If so, we want our money back!

    Mariah Carey’s soon-to-be ex-father-in-law, James Cannon, posted Facebook messages that people consider to be jabs at her.

    “Heres a thing, if a man say no lies and the woman lies all the time, what should that man do?”

    “Here a thing, if a woman puts on 200 the husband like a nice slim wife, what should that man do?”

    “Here a thing, if a man wants to have ten children and his wife only wants two children, then what should that man do?”

    “If a man tells a wife to have an abortion and she [has] it anyway, what should that man do?”

    After the posts gained a lot of attention, James deleted them and now claims they were excerpts from a book that he’s writing.

    Mariah Carey is now considered a studio fraud. She cannot sing live like she can on the recordings. She has supposedly been redubbing her live performances in the studio. Her microphone allegedly is turned off as a recording of a high note is played back, then her microphone is turned back on. Studio trickery has conned the masses into seeing her as being fantastically gifted from God. Before autotune, there was the cut and paste technique. A singer would do a bunch of takes. Then the studio talent would cut and paste the best of each take, seaming them into the final version of the vocals. That’s how a mediocre singer with off pitch could still do well in the 1980s. Mariah did not like to tour. She didn’t have to perform live much, when she flirted with and had an affair with the record label executive. Her record company allegedly used payola to get her singles to #1 in the charts. She married the record label executive who made her a star. With a celebrity make-up artist, a celebrity hair stylist, plastic surgery, photoshop, paying off radio stations to play less of other singers and get her to #1, countless cases of song plagiarism, studio vocal trickery and being married to the record label executive, the masses seemed to fall under the spell of her lies. They put her on a pedestal, calling her Queen Mariah and they would be her lambs. She is a queen of deception. See how she treated the guy who she stole the “Hero” lyrics from. Her audio techs know what she really sounds like. They use technology to fix her live vocals. Like real-time, live autotune. Allegedly, she has been lip-synching since 1999. She is a bad role model to girls. Her and her $510 million net worth don’t seem to care a whit about truth.

      Hi:

      This dullard keeps bashing Mariah Carey with the same tired, uninformed comment on a number of blogs, including this one, with vitriolic drivel like: “Not to mention, Mariah Carey is now considered a studio fraud. She cannot sing live like she can on the recordings.”

      Now let’s set the record straight on Mariah’s vocal decline:

      (1) First of all, if Mariah Carey is a studio fraud, then what about other ‘multi-octave’ wonders through the years like Yma Sumac, Minnie Riperton, Cheryl Lynn, Lisa Fischer, Debelah Morgan, etc.? Are they also guilty of studio gimmickry?

      (2) Secondly, this person is woefully ignorant of Mariah’s vocal fragility. She’s never hidden the fact that she sings with vocal nodules. Does he/she have any idea how difficult it is to sing with nodules on your vocal cords? Ask Julie Andrews and Celine Dion, they’ll tell you.

      (3) A number of mainstream popular music singers have successful vocal techniques, but a SUCCESSFUL vocal technique is not necessarily a HEALTHY vocal technique.

      For example, WHITNEY HOUSTON’s vibrato was splendid, but her wobbling jaw at times indicated too much breath pressure under the larynx, which contributes to early vocal deterioration. CHRISTINA AGUILERA imitated ‘whistle tones’ too often by forcing her falsetto voice beyond its natural ceiling, which can also contribute to early vocal deterioration. ADELE’s upper range belting led to a premature vocal hemorrhage which necessitated rehabilitative surgery.

      In the fascinating case of Mariah Carey, she has had an essentially solid technique EXCEPT, ironically, when singing her famous high notes, whether in chest voice or ‘whistle register.’ She has a lyric voice type, which is naturally less powerful and voluminous than dramatic and spinto voices, but in order to compete with great power-belters like Whitney Houston she pushed her upper belting range to such limits in her prime that it was only a matter of time before her already nodule-afflicted vocal folds began to give out on her.

      Additionally, while lauded for her astounding agility in the mythic ‘whistle register’ (and she has NO EQUAL here in agility apart from Debelah Morgan), Mariah’s approach to these super-high tones helped to do her in. She has admitted to having taught herself to sing these whistle tones in imitation of Minnie Riperton, but the latter was classically highly trained, as are Debelah Morgan and Beyonce Knowles. Thus their approach to high head voice and whistle register tones is a healthier one than Mariah’s.

      In contrast, Carey makes use of the FALSE CORD FUNCTION, which places immense breath pressure on the vocal folds, causing the worsening of existing nodules, loss of elasticity, and worst of all, vocal hemorrhaging and even permanent damage.

      Here is a quote on the matter from renowned vocal pedagogue and voice trainer, Michael Mayer:

      “I have long said that Mariah Carey destroyed her voice, even though everyone thought she was so great. She definitely was an exciting singer. I enjoyed her early hits. But I also noticed by the late 90s she was already singing a lower tessitura and not as vocally explosive. Many critics called this increased artistry and maturity, but I called it vocal decline. . . .

      “Getting back to Mariah, she sang both her high voice and belt voice with excess breath. This is the reason for her vocal decline. I don’t think it had much effect on her popularity. But it certainly did on her vocal health and longevity.”

      (4) Then there is also Mariah’s extreme PERFECTIONISM. Not only does she record songs and parts of songs over and over in the studio, but she has this penchant for incredibly demanding and complex VOCAL LAYERING—up to four layers or stacks of vocals—all her own—on a single selection like ‘Angel (The Prelude).’ Now imagine the strain on her vocal cords of a full album of complex vocal stacking!

      Quite frankly, she could never hope to sing many of these selections live, but people expect her to sound like she does on the cd in spite of her obvious vocal deterioration, so she sometimes sings to backing vocals and even lip-synchs the more challenging parts of the hits she can no longer do full justice to in a live setting.

      Now, it is clear that Mariah has not accepted the fact of her vocal deterioration, but why can’t people just give this remarkable woman–a mere human being like any of us–a bloody break already?

      Peace.
