Jasmine hung out with buddy Mariah at a London hotel, but is
tight-lipped about the dayâ€™s activities!
early part of April was hectic! The G20 leaders dinner at Downing
Street was legendary â€“ a night full of historic memories. Next, we
had Mrs Mariah Carey-Cannonâ€™s
birthday celebrations in Barbados.
Then, it was off to Miami
where she was working on tracks for her next album, which is due out in the
next few months.
from Miami, Mr
and Mrs Câ€™s jet plane landed at Heathrow, where the paps (who were waiting for
politicians at the airport), bum-rushed her and asked her about whether she was
happy about Obamaâ€™s trip to the UK.
Oh how we laughed. What do journalists expect someone to reply to such a
yeahâ€¦itâ€™s fabulous!â€ Mrs C had time for just three hours sleep before she got
up to play me the songs sheâ€™s made so far for the new album. We listened to the
new music in a manner that I have never been treated to before. It was
different, slightly naughty and millions of her fans wouldâ€™ve loved to see
through my eyes at that moment. But if I revealed what we did, there would be a
worldwide scandal! What happens in a London
hotel room, stays in a London
heard a variety of tracks, and there were big ballads, catchy melodic hooks,
hilarious and witty wordplay, and clever lines galore.
a few favourite tracks: some that talk from the heartbroken loverâ€™s point of
view; some representing the proud and stubborn dumper; and of course beautiful
love songs, inspired by Mr C. On one song in particular, she wears her heart on
her sleeve, and itâ€™s very touching to hear her pouring her heart out so
publicly. Mrs C also told me about her dog JJâ€™s new puppy playmate, thatâ€™s been
named Cha Cha. I then proceeded to inform her that me and my girls used to call
a certain part of the female anatomy our â€˜cha chaâ€™. She laughed and said: â€œI
mightâ€™ve guessed â€“ thereâ€™s always some American-British language exchange
humour when it comes to us!â€
we decided to play an April fools joke on MCâ€™s fans (otherwise known as
â€˜lambsâ€™): She encouraged me to tell my Twitter following that sheâ€™d had her
hair cut short and died dark brown. Within seconds, her Twitter planet of fans
hit me back with: â€œNice try Jas, but we know itâ€™s an April fool.â€ Theyâ€™re just
too quick for me! I shouldâ€™ve said she was shopping in Top Shop with me
instead! They know her too well.
After catching up on things, Mrs C slipped her curves
into a long, black designer dress and went out to the car â€“ and paparazzi â€“
waiting outside Claridgeâ€™s Hotel. She was taken to her jet, which took her to South Africa
where she and Mr C attended an event for a certain Mr Mandela. Mr Mandela is so
full of life at 91 years of age. What an absolute living legend.
