Mariah & Manager Jermaine Dupri Split...Again + KeKe Palmer's "Mirror Mirror"
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon may not have split...but MiMi and her manager Jermaine Dupri have. Deets inside, plus KeKe Palmer's new enchanting song "Mirror Mirror".....
Mariah & her longtime producer turned manager Jermaine Dupri have taken breaks before...but reportedly, they've officially split this time. The twosome have been working together on & off since 2004. And they had big plans for Mariah's big "comeback" album Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse. But after its major flop, it seems the two are going their separate ways.
In a statement to Billboard, J.D. says he wasn't allowed to do what he wanted to do:
“I’m a very hands-on person when it comes to my work. I put my all into every project. But when I’m not allowed to do what I do, then I know it’s time for me to move on. Mariah and I enjoy working together and will continue to make great music together in the future.”
MiMi's latest album has only sold 103,000 copies to date. Guess that subway ride on the 1 train in NYC was one of the last rides they'll be taking together for a while....
In other music news, rising superstar KeKe Palmer, who is currently starring in Showtime's hit series "Masters of Sex", her own BET talk show and an upcoming role on Broadway as Cinderella, is flossing her vocal skills.
The singer/dancer/actress is proving that she's indeed a triple threat (with other tricks in her bag like hosting). Check out her fairytale-like new song "Mirror Mirror", which gives us a taste of what we can expect from Broadway's first black Cinderella this September:
