Trivia / Mariah Carey

  • Broken Win/Loss Streak: As big as Mariah was on the Billboard Hot 100 in her heyday, her track record on the Radio and Records magazine CHR (Contemporary Hit Radio) airplay chart was even more impressive. On that chart, which formed the basis of Casey Kasem's Top 40 countdown show at that time, she hit No. 1 with every single she released from "Vision of Love" in 1990 to "Hero" in 1993. That gave her TEN consecutive No. 1 airplay hits on Top 40 radio, more even than Whitney Houston who holds the record for consecutive No. 1s on the Billboard Hot 100. "Without You" was the hit that broke the streak - by peaking at No. 2.
  • Career Resurrection: The Emancipation of Mimi.
  • Creator Backlash: "I Don't Wanna Cry". Despite commercial success, due to bad experiences during its production and because she feels it "doesn't have a message," Carey stated in an MTV interview that she dislikes the song and tries to sing it as rarely as possible.
  • Creator Breakdown: Glitter, Charmbracelet, and her infamous TRL appearance that had many viewers wondering what was going on. In 2018 she revealed that she was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder after her 2001 breakdown.
  • Fan Community Nicknames: Mariah has referred to her fans as her "little lambs" before.
  • Follow the Leader: Talent Show contestants as we know them today wouldn't have existed without her, Whitney Houston or CÚline Dion.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: All those jokes on shows like SNL about Carey's breakdown and her various bizarre apperances(TRL, New Year's Eve 2017) don't seem so funny now that she's revealed that she has Bipolar disorder, which explains many of her actions.
