Mariah Carey has won multiple Grammy Awards, has platinum selling records and has one of the best voices in the music industry. But over the past year, a string of bad performances, adequate vocals and a low charting album has led to what seems to be never ending criticism for the singer.

But according to rapper/producer Jermaine Dupri, the media isn’t the only one to blame for some of the pop star’s negative press. “From both sides I think it’s like you in the business you have to pay attention to everything,” JD told HipHollywood when asked how he feels about the singer’s latest criticism. “There’s some artists out there that aren’t as serious as they are supposed to be and I think sometimes Mariah doesn’t take it as seriously as she should.”

He continued, “I think that is where the criticism comes from because people expect you to put it at a level they ain’t even suppose to be able touch. Sometimes when you don’t do that, that’s where the criticism comes from.”

Dupri, who produced several of the signer’s albums and has worked with the star for over a decade, added, “Sometimes I think the media is a little too hard on Mariah, but at the same time I think sometimes she has to pay attention to that and say ‘I’m going to be one hundred times more serious than I feel like being right now.'”

“When you been in it [the music industry] this long, yeah, you wake up some mornings you don’t feel like putting your all into something and you feel like just because you got a name people are going to go with the flow. But the way the world is now, people got something to say about everything. You just have to be on your p’s and q’s at all times.”

JD went on to say that he loves that Mariah is currently doing a residency in Las Vegas and that “ain’t nobody going to break our records. That’s never going to happen.”

    He’s right, she always (and especially the last ten years) seems to be coasting, and riding on her fame from over 20 years ago. Her body also looks like one of a lazy girl.

      Her weight has absolutely nothing to do with anything and that’s offensive to even comment on; no one talks about the other legendary women and their weight. What matters most is her talent and artistry; that’s what she’s known for.

      She needs to refocus, find that Charmbracelet era motivation again, and stop playing around. She also needs to stop distancing herself from her pre-Butterfly career. It’s almost insulting to those of us who fell in love with her from day one. It makes it seem like we fell in love with someone who wasn’t real or someone who doesn’t appreciate her own efforts or accomplishments.

Lol, she gon’ lip sync & get drunk for the rest of her career, period. Kinda like how Whitney Houston smoked crack & sounded HORRIBLE for the last 12-15 years of her career.

      Multiplatinum global superstar Mariah Carey came to Caesars Palace on Wednesday night and conquered an empire. What a voice, what a stage show, what a great band, what a triumph!

      Perfection personified, the Duchess of all Divas was right at home.

      Mariah’s “Mariah #1 to Infinity” was stunning with old-fashioned Las Vegas glitz and glamour. There are only a handful of stars who are able to pull off this kind of spectacular, and Mariah proved that she is still at the top.

      She rocked the Colosseum with her singing. My only worry is
      how she will keep her voice in shape dealing with our desert dryness
      over the next 17 shows booked to date in her mini-residency. She
      performs 18 of her timeless No. 1 hits in chronological order.

      That spectacular journey through her life and career has to tax her vocal chords. Mariah closes with her newest hit “Infinity” being performed for the first time live. Her voice is an extraordinary powerhouse.

      She dispelled any worries about her losing that angelic gift. It was pitch perfect reaching for the heights with her five-octave span. No question she is the highest-pitched contemporary pop singer of the decade.

      EAT THAT BITCH!!!

    Mariah has been doing for 25 years.She is already the most successful artist ever in decades.I see JD point.But she got to do what she does since the 90s.Media are just evil towards her last year.But now her voice is finally getting good again in Las Vegas.

      Please stop saying she is the most successful or biggest selling female recording artist ever. According to Guinness, Forbes, Billboard, etc, the most successful female artist is Madonna.

            May 30, 2015 at 8:29 AM

            Bitch Mariah is more successful than madonna and has more number one hits than mandonna, get your facts straight. the only reason why mandonna made more money is because mandonna is way older than Mariah and she has been in the music industry longer. when it comes to music, songs, voice Mariah is more successful than madonna.

              Typical sheep, can’t argue with numbers so you start calling people bitch. You seem to think you know more than Guinness book of records, Billboard and Forbes combined. Because Madonna just became the only artist to have 44 #1’s on a single chart. When was the last time Mariah had a number one on any chart?
              No one has argued about her vocal range. We are talking numbers so can we stick to subject at hand without hysteria?

                  Here we go again. Can any of you produce a link from the Guinness Book of records, Billboard or Forbes that certifies Mariah as the current best selling, most successful female act? No? Then stop spinning in circles. At one point she was the best selling act of the 90s. That ship has sailed.

                    What a looser. Madonna’s tour in Australia was a Fiasco and she beg KYLIE MINOGUE via twitter to join her on stage. She was never an artist she’s more like a dance music artist and has always been. No one care about that selling body grandma not even her son can’t stand that bitch. Madonna need to stop thinking she still got it when in fact her only talent was to inspire a talentless generations that think that it’s normal to have an orgy on stage like her girlie prostitute show or to be crucified and represents herself “dressed up” like jesus. Bitch can’t sing, it’s not that great dancer as her fans made her to be just because she changes choreographies and is arrogant. Bye shitonna fan, no one care about dance music charts LOL we are here about records only and the chart that matters is Hot 100 and anyone knows and just recognizes that charts as something special to reach.
                    When Grandmonna will release a decent song with a video without grills thinking that she can sing?

                      How many shows did Madonna do in Australia? Did you not see the pictures of the full arenas or are you going by the tabloids who post pictures before the show started? Hardly a fiasco. More like a commercial success. The same as everywhere around the world where she toured. Did you noticed she skipped Latin America although there was demand? A lot of artists wish to have Madonna’s worldwide touring success.

                    September 12, 2015 at 5:57 AM

                    Because Mariah love making different kinds of music for her fans. That’s it! Dance does not matter! Billboard hot 100 is where ALL GENRES come together to compete and the Billboard hot 100 is where Mariah Carey was the most on the #1 spot. Madonna has been in the music industry years longer but Mariah BURST onto the music scene in 1990, wrote and recorded 15 #1 hits IN LESS THAN 10 YEARS. How many hits did Madonna had at that time 5? lol

                      Mariah had one thing going for her, the voice. She should have done like Celine, Barbra, Lara Fabian and taken care of it.
                      It’s no wonder she can’t fill arenas worldwide anymore. People are not deaf.

                      Dude Mariah still got the voice! She proved it during her Residency in Vegas. If you know nothing about singing, the vocal cords and the human body, I suggest you shut up. If Mariah has trouble singing it is because her vocal cords are tired or she is physically sick or tired but it is only TEMPORARY. With enough vocal and physical rest the voice comes back. When you are tired, exhausted from working hard or you are sick you stay at home why? because it is impossible to work, sing in this case when you are sick or tired. It’s fucking human. Mariah Carey is considered a super human being for her incredible talent but she is human just like you. Mariah recently went through a divorce and it was obviously a very difficult time for her. Emotional pain effect you physically and mentally it’s only natural that it wouldnt allow her to be her best. But make no mistake bitch! Mariah is a strong woman and she will overcome it more powerful than ever.

                      Another Mariah apologist spewing insults to ignore the fact that her voice continues to be hoarse in every show. You can come here and claim she is super woman, but there are older women, singing longer like Barbra and Celine who have kept their voices. So who is the real super human?The numbers don’t lie. She can’t fill arenas world wide anymore.

Celine Dion can’t come close to what Mariah can do vocally and Barbara… lmfao dude you are an idiot and clearly don’t know a damn thing about singing. Guinness Book Of Records named Mariah The SUPREME VOCALIST. Do you know what that means? > It means that Mariah Is The Greatest Singer That Ever Lived. Mariah Holds the records for highest vocal range AND lowest vocal range.

                      in the 90’s Mariah received the awards for Artist Of The Decade (beating mandonnas ass) Artist Of The Millennium (beating mandonnas ass) One Sweet Day written by Mariah holds the record for most weeks at #1 16 weeks (beating mandonnas ass) wrote and recorded more 15 #1 hits in less than 10 years, more than mandonna who has been in the music industry since what, the 70’s (beating mandonnas ass again) in 2001 Mariah sang the star spangled banner hitting a note more than once that was considered beyond human range by Guiness Book Of Records and that is one of the reasons why Mariah Carey is considered a super human being. (beating mandonnas ass yet again) In 2005 Mariah wrote and recorded we belong together, holds the record for most weeks at number one, 14 weeks, is song of the decade of 00″s and is considered the greatest song recorded in music history. (beating mandonnas ass again) after the release of we belong together MTV compiled a list of the 10 greatest singers in history and Mariah was crowned the queen (beating mandonnass ass again) mandonnaa wasn’t even on the list LOL After Mariah Carey’s super successful (in every way)ABC Christmas Concert Mariah became the Queen Of Christmas (beating mandonnass ass again) Maraih Carey is the only singer who’s name is associated with the Christmas season every year. Half of all the greatest christmas song were written by jewish composers, the other half was written by Mariah Carey (beating mandonnass ass again) there are so many many many more to mention but just to give you one again Mariah was recognized as THE HIGHEST PICTHED POP SINGER OF THE DECADE (beating mandonnass ass yet again)

                      Mariah had her triumphs for sure, some organic and some bought. Don’t play naive about award shows politics; specially the World Music Awards.
                      Nevertheless, that’s the past. Mariah’s last album sold around 100k worldwide. Madonna’s last album opened to number one around the world and to date has sold 700k. This even though it leaked three months before release.
                      Furthermore, Mariah is having a modest run in Vegas while Madonna is currently selling out arenasarenas around the entire world. She was not born with an epic vocal range, but she has taken good care of her voice. Her new show is live and many times acapella. She doesn’t need the prince of Monaco to give her fake awards. The public is paying to see her live around the globe. That’s the U L T I M A T E award for any performer.

                      You keep posting the one good review she got. When you google Mariah Carey Vegas reviews, this is the only good one. Mind you, it is one from a Vegas reporter who promotes local acts. Go figure. I wonder if you willingly ignored the other reviews. Did you not read this:

                      “Between her Christmas song blunder at Rockefeller Center in December and the disappointing Vegas residency debut, Carey may want to leave fans with her 1990’s legacy and take a break from performing altogether.”

                      On faster songs, like “Dreamlover,” “Honey” and “Fantasy,” Ms. Carey was practically tiptoeing. “Fantasy” featured Ol’ Dirty Bastard, who died in 2004, rapping via video, and he felt more alive than Ms. Carey, who was right there onstage.

                      Madonna sold more but Mariah sold faster and that is why Mariah became the biggest selling artist in history. Mariah has sold over 200 million records world wide, I never said Madonna isn’t the best selling female ect but mandonaa has SHIPPED an
                      alleged 300 million although her label claimed 200 million one year and
                      a year later claimed madonna sold 300 million. Strange don’t you think. As a recording artist, musician, singer, songwriter, visionary, Mariah has had the most success.

                      I’m not sure why one cannot post youtube video links in this thread. Everytime I post one, it doesn’t get approved. But in any event, I’m sure you’ll find an excuse for why her voice is hoarse and inconsistent.

                      Multiplatinum global superstar Mariah Carey came to Caesars Palace on
                      Wednesday night and conquered an empire. What a voice, what a stage
                      show, what a great band, what a triumph!

                      Perfection
                      personified, the Duchess of all Divas was right at home in the
                      footsteps of Colosseum residents past and present Celine Dion, Sir Elton
                      John, Rod Stewart, Bette Midler and Shania Twain.

                      Mariah’s
                      “Mariah #1 to Infinity” was stunning with old-fashioned Las Vegas glitz
                      and glamour. There are only a handful of stars who are able to pull off
                      this kind of spectacular, and Mariah proved that she is still at the
                      top.

                      She rocked the Colosseum with her singing. My only worry is
                      how she will keep her voice in shape dealing with our desert dryness
                      over the next 17 shows booked to date in her mini-residency. She
                      performs 18 of her timeless No. 1 hits in chronological order.

                      That
                      spectacular journey through her life and career has to tax her vocal
                      chords. Mariah closes with her newest hit “Infinity” being performed for
                      the first time live. Her voice is an extraordinary powerhouse.

                      She
                      dispelled any worries about her losing that angelic gift. It was pitch
                      perfect reaching for the heights with her five-octave span. No question
                      she is the highest-pitched contemporary pop singer of the decade.

                  Madonna’s latest album has already sold 700k copies. How many did Mariah’s last album sell?
                  Madonna’s Rebelheart tour just opened to two 20,000 people arena shows and its selling double arena shows around the world. She is older, in better physical shape and singing live with a better cared voice.
                  These are just facts. Mariah has ruined her voice and does not show any level of Madonna’s discipline or work ethic. She could learn a thing or two.

            Mariah Carey has the most number one singles than any solo artist, she has the longest running number 1 in music history at 16 weeks and holds one of the titles for the second longest number 1 in history at 14 weeks, Mariah has spent the most weeks at number 1 at 72 weeks taking over the Beatles. Mariah Carey is the most successful female song writer and female producer in billboard history, Mariah Carey is the third best selling album artist of the soundscan era, and the number one female. Mariah has SOLD 200 million records world wide, Madonna has SHIPPED an alleged 300 million (although her label claimed 200 million one year and a year later claimed 300) A recording artist is not just being the voice on the record, you have to be the songwriter and producer and sorry but as a recording artist Mariah has had the most success for a female.

              No she does not have the most #1s. Madonna has 44 number 1s. How can Mariah have the most #1?

              Both Guinness world of records and Billboard have certified Madonna as the most successful female solo act in history. Are you saying they are both wrong?

    Finally someone who has worked with her comes out and says what we all have noticed. She is always late and with hoarse voice. You never hear Patti Labelle, Aretha or Celine show up with hoarse voice and miss high notes.

    Mariah first needs to divorce Nick. He is a distraction. Having a career and being a single mom is going to take some adjustment. She needs a trainer to get her body tone up which will bring more energy. Eat right, sleep right. It’s going to take at least a year to get herself right. Alcohol and the Las Vegas weather will dry a singer throat completely out. Humidifier.

    I see where he is coming from, but I don’t think Mariah is in the business of doing it big anymore when it comes to appealing to the masses. She did that and I feel like she really enjoys doing things her way nowadays. She did it their way for the first decade of her career, and I do think she does need to take her career more seriously, but just little things such as lessening that alcohol consumption so that voice don’t go cracking more than those nodules have done already.

    I get you JD, but as a friend to MC, you need to sthu.

    Bye jermash. smh. never seen this side of him before smh. bitter cuz she left def jam????? She’s back at Sony where she belongs and she’s been on fiya since infinity was released…you know why?? Her LABEL is taking the time to book the shows, interviews la LA LA LA etc. Me I AM Mariah was a masterpiece album that just never seen the light of day because there was no promotion on her part or the label’s. Jermaine is a friend of Mariahs and has seen the inside of her world and how she’s used to doing things..they are on two diff levels. JD has to work like hes starving cuz hes not the franchise that Mimi is. I’m a fan of jermash I’m not hatin but surely he didnt expect her to do all the footwork while being managed by def jam. What I see was a label who used Mariah to their benefit. They did mega promotion for the “emancipation” album to boost their own careers ( Jermaine in particular) and then left her hanging w/ the albums that followed. Mariah was the first megastar to put JD on…he needs to be humble, and Mimi was already 5 years in when you came along JD so cut the shade.

    He is right. Furthermore, this sex-kitten/I-am-a-star-dahling persona that she insists on stuffing down our throats is so tired. We don’t care to see Mariah as sexy, we just want her to put out quality music and give the great performances that we all know she is more than capable of delivering.

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
