Mariah Carey - The Elusive Chanteuse & Her Crazy Album Titles

Ok, I know I said the next post was gonna be the review of Kylie's latest album, but whatever. Did you know that one of pop music's biggest divas is about to release a new album? Yep, Mariah Carey's new album is coming out May 27 and she named it... brace yourselves: 'Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse'.
Nope, this is not a joke. If you've ever watched Mariah giving an interview, you're probably familiar with her antics and craziness, but this title is too weird even for her standards. The tracklist is not much better and it contains song titles such as: 
"Supernatural" (ft. "Dembabies" a.k.a. Ms. Monroe & Mr. Moroccan Scott Cannon a.k.a. Roc 'N Roe) - how many people is this?
"Money ($ * / ...)" (ft. Fabolous)
"Heavenly (No Ways Tired/Can't Give Up Now)" - one song title? why not 3?
"The Art of Letting Go"
"Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse" - but of course.

In the honor of Mariah's new album, let's do something fun and rank all of her album titles based on how weird they are!

9. Mariah Carey

Ok, this was her first album, she wasn't so weird and outrageous back then (I think so), and the album was simply named after her. Every artist does it once in their career.

8. Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas II You 
Again, nothing special... She recorded two Christmas albums, and surprisingly didn't name them 'Carey Christmas and a Happy New Mariah' or something like that.

7. Daydream, Butterfly, Rainbow
This was a period of Mariah's life when she was obviously getting high out in the meadows, chasing butterflies and sleeping on the grass.

6. Music Box, Glitter, Charmbracelet
Also, she would often break into little girls' rooms and whatever item she saw first, she would name her albums after it. How else can you explain these three?

5. Emotions 
Wow, this is very deep, Mariah. Because what else could you be singing about than your emotions? This is a bit better than Madonna's album 'Music'.

4. The Emancipation of Mimi 
Mariah decided to use her personal nickname Mimi in this album title, because it's probably like a term of endearment for her (Britney fans will get this). However, the title doesn't sound personal, it sounds fake and weird.

3. E=MC² 
Mariah is very lucky when it comes to her initials. MC can stand for many things -  Merry Christmas (as we've seen), MC as in a musician, Mississippi College, etc. But we never would've thought she'd recognize herself in the formula E=MC2. Such ingenuity!

2. Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel
Continuing with the personal theme, after Emancipation comes the 'Memoires' of Mariah, aka Mimi, aka Merry Chistmas, aka Imperfect Angel.

1. Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse

And finally, the masterpiece of album titles is the latest album of this woman with so many identities. She is no longer E=MC2, she is now the Elusive Chanteuse. Ohhh, this is what E in that formula stands for, elusive!

  1. Me. Mariah. Dieting doesn't work like it should

  2. THB i like the cover and tbh2 i really dont know why. I was obsessed with TEOM cover and this is similar digital art so i think thats the reason. Pretty sure i will buy both versions.

  3. me. i am moo...the photoshopped hasbeen

  4. Actually that photo was taken back in may 2013 when her body actually was close to that so it isn't as much photoshop as her haters say
