    Plummeting album sales, terrible live vocals, disappointing performances, a crumbling marriage, etc. Should she go to Vegas and call it a day? Or retire?

    Discuss.

    Yes.

    Her last two albums and horrible live vocals are proof.

    I think it’s safe to say that Mariah Carey’s career is over but she’s a legend. My problem with Mariah is that she continues to ruin her legacy. She’s become a joke to this new generation. This new tour should not be happening right now. I want her to be like Barbara Streisand ! Mariah Carey should take notes from her. I love Mariah but she needs a reality check. It’s sad that no one takes her seriously anymore because she’s one of the greatest singers of all time, has an amazing catalogue and is very respected but she’s continuing to ruin her legacy. No one even mentions those things anymore.

    I love Mariah Carey. She is actually one of my favorite artists of all time. I grew up listening to her music and following her as a huge fan. With that said I think she peaked with E=MC2. But I don’t care she has left a huge legacy, I mean I think she’s pretty much the most successful female artist of all time, and in her prime that voice was stellar. And her comeback in 2005 was iconic, probably the most successful comeback in music in recent yEars. She is a living legend, and has so many hits. I see her being inducted into the rock n roll hall of fame in the future.

    Mariah Carey will never get inducted into the Rock-N-Roll Hall Of Fame.  She is not the kind of artists that gets in.

    I’m rooting for her to get into the R&RHOF ! The snubs of her fellow divas is making me lose hope though ! And this bad press isn’t helping lol.

    No. No singer needs to retire in their 40s.

     

    Mariah Carey is a lock for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It just depends will she be a first ballot hall of famer or not. We’ll find out next year.

    She’s been over for about half a decade.

    A legend can never be over, no matter how terrible her career may end…

    How many people are still at the top of their game after 25 years? This happens to every artist. She’s 45, got two kids, and I bet is as over the business as it is over her. She’s like Cher. She will never be over. She’ll need to reinvent herself as maybe an actress or perhaps just a larger than life personality. The best thing she could do right now is send up her image. Make fun of herself.

    I don’t get why people care? Why does it matter that Mariah Carey is over?

    Why is there a forum for Mariah and not someone like David Bowie, Paul McCartney or Bono who are much older than Mariah? Why does a woman’s worth as a singer diminish after she turns 40? Why isn’t it the same for men?

    I don’t particularly like Mariah, but it was saddening that someone would say that the most successful female artist of all time should retire just because of her age. I do think she should retire if its her choice or nobodyy wants to buy her music.

    He’s not saying she should retire. He’s “asking” if she should retire. I’m assuming your answer is no. I don’t think she should retire either.

    It’s not about her age. It’s about her messing up her legacy with her voice, arguably her music, image and even personal life.

    I just think Mariah needs better people backing her – someone that will let her know when she needs to step back and start over. Mariah has been struggling vocally for quite some time, and she hasn’t really experimented much in recent years and has pretty much stayed in her comfort zone. If Barbra and Aretha can last fifty plus years, then Mariah shouldn’t have a problem doing so. She just needs a reevaluation and for someone to be truthful to her when she’s doing something wrong.

    As for Mariah making the R&RHoH, I find it hard to believe that acts such as Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston and Janet Jackson have been eligible for years but  have not been inducted but Mariah will when she’s eligible. I’d argue that all three of those are much more respected than Mariah in the industry.

    Her last album (not counting sales) was terrific.  It’s a very good album.  Period.  The woman can still write some damn good songs and make some great records.  Yes, she has some nights where her vocals sound a mess, but then she has moments where she sounds great.  Do people really expect her to sound like she did in 1996?  If so, they’re delusional.  For a woman her age, she can still sing better than many pop stars of today.

    So will she ever be as popular as she once was?  Most likely not.  But is she “over”?  Hell no.
