Mariah Carey may have been holding a one way ticket to obscurity after the flop of her last few albums coupled with a very public breakdown but things have certainly changed. Now after the release of the incredibly successful 'The Emancipation of Mimi', which has sold over six million copies worldwide, Mariah has cashed in that ticket and is now flying first class into the stratosphere.
The original queen of vocal gymnastics is well aware that many critics had written her off, especially after her last record label Virgin brought her out of her record deal after her last album. "They can call me whatever they want," stated Mariah at an appearance over the weekend. "I never went anywhere. And my real fans have always been here for me. And, you know what? It's a wonderful feeling and everything I have is because God has blessed me with this and I'll always be grateful for what I have."
In other Mariah news it seems that a limited edition Mariah doll has been created. Only 3,000 of the dolls have been made and they are expected to become collectors items.
