MARIAH CAREY, Skank or Diva?

Personally I think she's a real diva in the way that she screws up and then picks herself back up again over and over.

    She is definitley talented, but I think she is pretty skanky.

    Her look is skanky, but there's no denying the talent.

    I agree with everyone about her talent. Her range is impressive. Although, her outfits are scandalous. It's not like she doesn't have talent and she dresses skanky like Britney. I also think Christina Aguliera has a great voice and she dresses kinda scandalous too.

    Yes Christina has an equally beautiful big voice and also favors skanky outfits

    Britney & Xtina do dress trashy but I look at it from the standpoint of they're young & had people guiding them in their careers. You reach a point in your life where you realize that dressing provocatively only gets you so far.

    Sadly Mariah hasn't reached this point in her life yet.

    I don't think Mariah Carey's voice is good at all. She always seems to be whispering or shrieking, in my opinion.

    her voice isn't the same as before the breakdown. still somewhat talented. she is skanky. i will never forget that booty shaking video she did in the daisy dukes. :shock:

    I put "very talented skank," but I think there should be a selection called "moderately talented skank."

    If I were her, I would dress with more class and try not to be such a train wreck. I am also very tired of the"look at me as the wind blows my blonde spaghetti hair" thing she has going on in her photos.

    I also think the word "diva" has been abused in the past few years, but that's an entirely different rant.

    I dunno about Diva, but I dont think she is a skank. I think she just lost her way a bit and got caught up in the hype of the industry and hollywood. Happens to almost every celebrity at some point. I have always thought she was among the very best voices in the business and she still is.

    Umm....yeah. I think her voice is horrible. I think she's talented at turning herself into a success, and overcoming all her personal issues, so to that extent I'd say diva.


    Oh, and I love XTina's voice!

    I used to love Mariah and still think her voice is very beautiful. After her divorce from Tommy Mottolo (which probably wasn't a bad decision) she turned total skank. She started dating/banging thugs and dressing like a tramp and in my opinion continued to decline ever since.

    I can hardly bear to listen to her music now. What a waste of talent. :(

    If it wasn't for all of the shrieking and the the near nakedness, I wouldn't have said she was a no talent skank. I will admit that she isn't doing a lot of shrieking these days, but I'm still not thrilled. I find her just generally annoying.

    I agree about the waste of talent part. I would vote "talented but desperate." I think in her desperation to compete with her less talented but equally/more successful counterparts, her music choices haven't adequately showcased her voice, and she has simply resorted to the cheapest tricks in the book to sell records, which may be her own decision or that of her record label--likely both.

    I think she's a talented woman but has not class. And please, can she just stop with the vocal gymnastics already? I'm really tired of all of these diva's who can't leave well enough alone. They can't just sing a simple note, it has to be belabored and twisted and shrieked until you want to scream. They are all starting to sound the same to me. To be fair to Mariah, I haven't heard her latest, but I'd be surprised if it's any different. And Mariah, the world already knows that you have giant boobs, please stop exposing them all the time!

    her lastest cd is awesome. I stopped listening to her about 3 albums back and was very surprised at the smooth mellowness of her new stuff.
