So, the news is that American music diva Mariah Carey will be coming to Tunisia this summer to perform at two concerts.
The concerts will be held on July 22nd and 24th at the Menzah Stadium in Tunis.
It’s not very often that someone as famous as Mariah Carey comes to Tunisia for a concert. We’ve only had Michael Jackson once, Sting once and well I don’t remember who else, if any.
Still I’m not too sure I’ll be going. I used to like some of Mariah’s music in the early 90’s, around the period of her hit album ‘Music Box’.
But then after her divorce, when she started stripping out of her clothes and teaming up with a bunch of rappers, she went on my musical blacklist.
Her latest album ‘The Emancipation of Mimi’ has some songs that are reminiscent of her old style, which I think is the reason of its success, but well it hasn’t really made me much more of a fan of hers.
She has a good voice though, when she’s not shouting too much to the border of squeaking, so I don’t know, maybe from now to the dates of the concerts, I’ll have a little mind change and say “Why not?”
Till then, here’s another bit of Mariah Carey related news: Mariah Carey to be honoured for her “Celebrity Legs of a Goddess”. Whatever…
