Mariah Carey Talks "Genius" Facebook Music Release

The "#Beautiful" singer sat down with Fuse News to discuss premiering her new single, "The Art of Letting Go," on the social network

Fuse News recently caught up with legendary diva Mariah Carey, who's prepping for the release for her upcoming fourteenth studio album, The Art of Letting Go. She sat down with long-time producer Jermaine Dupri and opened up about hitting the studio, recording a hit song and why she chose to premiere the title track via Facebook.

"When we talked about [premiering "The Art of Letting Go" on Facebook], I said, 'I think that's genius!'... Because the fans worldwide [can access the music]," Mariah said. 

"I've always had a special relationship with my fans. It's not like, 'Oh, here comes the new world of the Internet. Let me figure out how to adapt myself into this.' No. It was always either calling my fans... or having fans wait hours on end in front of a signing, and I tried to do things like buy pizza for them," she continued. She's always had your back, lambs!

Check out more in Fuse's interview with Mariah above. Stream "The Art of Letting Go" on Facebook November 11.

June 23: Jack White's Really Rooting for the Home Team

Were the Cubs down or something? Jack White was spotted at last night's baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres looking absolutely miserable. The Cubbies pulled out a 6-0 win over San Diego last night so the White Stripe ideally should have been enjoying himself in spite of the team's current 41-57 record.
