You have to give it to Mariah Carey. She doesn’t let several (thousand?) bad reviews stop her from pursuing her dreams of becoming a respected actor. Most people would have stopped going to the movies after the lashing she got following the release of 2001’s uber-flop Glitter. But not Mariah. She went on to star in 2002’s overlooked Wise Girls and earned mixed reviews for her turn in 2008’s Tennessee.

Mariah Carey is making sure she and husband Nick Cannon remain recession proof. This New Year’s Eve found Madame Butterfly on the isle of St. Barths belting out tunes to the price tag of $1 million. Yup, you heard right. Saif Khadafy, son of Libyan leader Muammar Khadafy, invited (and paid) Carey to bring in 2009 at his New Year’s Eve extravaganza at the super posh Nikki Beach nightclub.

Lil Wayne and Coldplay (or as our Sound Check blog would say, the abominable Coldplay) might've topped the list of 2008 Grammy nominees, but among the mainstream contenders announced Wednesday night there were plenty of Latin surprises!
The biggest was for newcomer Karina Pasian--the 17-year old Dominican songstress scored a Best Contemporary R&B Album nomination for her self-titled debut, and she'll go head to head with Mary J.
