Mimi’s concert & a question from Mikey
Ok gossips…need your help on this one. I received an email from Mikey the other day about Mariah Carey concert tickets. Now I worship the Hoffness in Mimi as much as anyone else but I can’t say I’d take her music outside of my iPod and actually spend an entire night live in concert with her 10 thousand octaves, you know what I mean? So anyway, Mikey wants to know if Mimi is ripping off her fans. I have no idea so I thought I’d put it to you. Read his message and if you know the answer, would you be so kind as to fill me in? Lainey, I have heard complaints from my friends regarding Mariah Carey concert tickets being too EXPENSIVE. I heard that you have to PAY her MEMBERSHIP fee to her FAN CLUB before you can actually buy her concert tickets. I am not sure if this is true or not, but if it is, dont you think this is too much? I mean, it"s one thing to really sort out, clean house, and eventually know your true fans but how about the ones that are not big fans but want to try and see her new reborn career? Wouldn"t it be a hindrance to actually expand her fan base by forcing the paying public to join her fan club first and also pay for that membership? This I think, is so MARIAH - too DIVAish! Oh, I am Mariah, I need you to be a serious paying fan club member if u want to watch my concerts! PUHLEASE! What do you think Lainey? Dear Mikey: She’s no doubt a diva but I don’t know, it sounds kind of weird to me. Having limits like that seriously impacts overall sales. And since it’s all about making money, I’m thinking it’s not the smartest move. We’ll find out soon enough though. In the meantime, can I cheer you up with some classic Mimi Hoff? It always works for me!
