[LA Times] BG Note: In a recent interview, Mariah Carey discussed both her residency in Las Vegas and her long music career. She also talked about a competitor who stole something from her.
REPORTER:Any plans to get back in the studio soon?
MARIAH CAREY: Yes, we do. L.A. Reid and myself, we’re going to go in and go hard and think about the best move for the next record. And we’ll see. But the last thing I’m going to do is give away more intellectual property. I’ve literally been robbed. I had an idea for something and someone took the exact same thing, and that was a little unnerving.
REPORTER: Now I want to know.
MARIAH CAREY: I can’t tell you because it’s too big a scandal. The person literally lifted the entire concept, and the title, and the visuals. I just couldn’t believe. But it’s OK, it wasn’t meant to be, obviously. Or maybe it’s meant to be again under a new headline.
