The Mariah Mystery Revealed!

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteMariah Carey

We mentioned yesterday that for some reason Mariah Carey has a large fan base in Brazil.

In fact, her song I Want To Know What Love Is has been on the Brazilian charts for 20 consecutive weeks at the number one spot.

It's even become the longest chart-topper in the countries history!

And now we know why.

Turns out Mimi's song was turned into the theme song for one of Brazil's most popular soap operas, Viver a Vida.

That explains the popularity of her song - it's tied into the soap opera!

And there you have it.

    Billboard: "Angels Cry" Remix Debuts at #30 on AC
    Mariah Carey makes her 28th visit to the Adult Contemporary chart, as "Angels Cry" starts at No. 30. The song marks the first appearance on the list for featured artist Ne-Yo.

    The ballad is the second song from Carey's album "Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel" to reach the tally, following the No. 10-peaking "I Want to Know What Love Is." Carey had not charted two tracks from the same album on Adult Contemporary since the title cut from "Butterfly" (No. 11) and "My All" (No. 18) in 1997-98.

    First released on "Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel" without Ne-Yo, the new version of "Angels Cry" previews Carey's duets/remix album "Angels Advocate," due March 30.

    So what, your point is?



  7. 7

    Greatness.



  8. 8

    So you're saying if someone else had recorded the song, it would have had the same impact? A lot of songs have become huge hits due to their tie-in to a TV show or a movie. You say it like it's a bad thing.

    Perez, you're a fat idiot. It has never been a mistery - everyone knows that since FOREVER. I will stop watch your site.

    Mariah Carey Wants a Piece of Woody Allen
    Before casting his next film, Woody Allen may want to check out Precious. (But not Glitter!)

    Why?

    Mariah Carey tells me that the legendary filmmaker is her dream director.

    "I've never met him, but Bullets Over Broadway is one of my favorite movies ever," Carey told me at the Oscars. "I can quote every word. I think it's amazing."

    Sounds like Carey has learned a lesson or two from her glittery flop. "I'm going to try to be careful about what I do," she said. "You've got to work with people who bring you to another level, and you have to surround yourself with people you can fully give yourself to."

    New Acting Projects for Mariah
    Mariah Carey was her usual fabulous diva self backstage at the Film Independent Spirit Awards — tottering around on skyscraper heels so high she couldn't walk and having security prop her up all night.

    The star, upstaging other actresses in a tight black dress showing off her famous curves, was celebrating her cast mates from "Precious," which swept the board at Friday night's awards at the LA Live arena — seen as a more relaxed precursor to the Oscars.
    Celebrating without husband Nick Cannon backstage, Carey did nothing to stop rumors that she's pregnant or ready to adopt, telling us, "I have a lot of new acting projects coming up. I am talking to ['Precious' director Lee Daniels] about at least three movies. But there's also something else very special on the way. I can't say any more."

    "Precious" dominated the Spirits, winning Best Feature, Best Director, Best First Screenplay for Geoffrey Fletcher, Best Female Lead for Gabourey Sidibe and Best Supporting Female for Mo'Nique.

    Re: GoodBoyNC – Thank you. My Heart Will Go On was big becuase of the movie it was attached to.. There are lots of songs that do well because of the projects they're attched to. If a couple other artists, who will remain nameless, had songs at number one that happened to be attached to this show in Brazil we'd never know that.



  14. 14

    Wowee !! Did she get sperminated in her chest-wall area and is now, like, pregnant in her BUST, or what ?!?!?



  15. 15

    haha



  16. 16

    gag, someone tell her to put her tits away before she pokes someones eye out!!!



  17. 17

    No, nonononono, I'm Brazilian and I really don't like her, but that song is making in the charts way before the soap opera started using it, in any case, Obsessed made almost the same thing, So that information is kinda wrong and "viver a vida" has one of the lowest rate of the same time soap of like 20 years so that so not true =D



  18. 18

    Perez/Mario once again, God, your an idiot! Some of the best songs in chart history have been attached to a movie! you just cant stand any one other then your Tranny at number 1 can you…tisk



  19. 19

    Two-Ton Mariah best see Jenny Craig before she needs knee replacement for that fat, yes fat, body of hers.



  20. 20

  24. 24

  25. 25

    No wonder!!!! That explains everything cause COWRIAH is nothing outside the USA and now that the US radio isn't playing her music she is desperatly trying to appel to other countried which never gave a damm about her.



  26. 26

    Re: xcalibur – excuse me, but Brazil is one of the most populated countries in the world, so please don't start with the stuped comments. And don't be so naive to think US is the only country that counts.



  27. 27

    I actually think it was a decent cover and one of my favorite Mariah Carey songs in years b/c it remided me of when she actually used to be a great singer instead of doing every damn song with rappers and putting her natural talent on the back burner just to be more rhythmic radio friendly.



  28. 28

    Re: xcalibur – youre an idiot



  29. 29

    Dear god I did NOT have to see that. She needs to learn to fucking dress. It's gross that someone her size and age still thinks she can wear whatever the hell she wants.

    Who cares where she makes hits. Point is she's great and all you idiots that make up names for celebrities are just well…idiots. Almost every celebrity ends up with a weight problem whether it be gaining too much or losing too much weight. What the hell is up with everyone talking about the gaining. I'd rather be fat than a twig and slip through a damn crack on the sidewalk.
