LOOK WHO'S BACK: Now, remember, gang: If you can't say something nice, it's best never to say anything at all:

Yes, after two years the voices have finally suggested that Mariah record and release a new single and, hey, let's not be surprised if it blows our tiny little minds. Def Jam really think it's something amazing:

"Mariah is getting ready to shoot the video for Say Something. It is an amazing album that crosses all boundaries of R&B, hip-hop and pop."

So, um, like every record released by a female solo artist on a major label in north america in the last five years, then? Can't wait.

Carey is equally keen on her own work:

"The record is cool. I'm happy with it. We got ballads, we got uptempos, we got a lot of things."

- of which ballads and uptempos are only two. We're frankly staggered - who would have thought of releasing an album by a female singer that had some slow ballady love songs as well as some more up-tempo dancey numbers on it. The only thing that would amaze us any more would be if Mariah's waggling her tits about in the video, but surely she couldn't be that groundbreaking, could she?
