Mariah Does Oprah And American Idol, And Hopefully Sugars Up David Archuleta's Tank

Mariah Carey performed her new single "Bye Bye" and sat for a lengthy interview on Oprah yesterday, plugging the release of E=MC² this week.

These damn clips will probably get yanked from YouTube, but before they do, the first one is actually the middle part of the interview, where Mimi talks about the whole breaking of Elvis' chart record thing.

The Big O's looking like she's vigorously enjoying life lately -- as well as the craft services table -- so it's no wonder she spends so much time talking to Mimi about her diet secrets. There's a lot more of the interview, but I always think it's a goddamn pain in the ass to see a blog with four hundred video clips in a post, so F that.

Anyway, Mariah is the guest mentor on American Idol tonight, where the contestants will choose one of her songs. I hope David Archuleta, whom I've dubbed "Baby Queen," does something appropriately scandalous like "Honey" or "Touch My Body."

He'll probably do a boring one like "One Sweet Day," though. Where's Sanjaya when you need him?

    For some reason, something preachy like "Anytime You Need a Friend" comes to mind for David A.

    Did they ever do a Celebrity Death Match with M and M? That would be too damn hot.

    John, you were dead on the money -- "When You Believe" = just as preachy. Love how Simon had to reference that "I had a #1 in the U.K. at Christmas with that record." Meanwhile, David A and Leon Jackson.... kindy similar-looking, no?

    Joshua, you forgot the other stripper -- Mary Carey.

    Anonymous, uh oh -- this sounds like Mom...for real!! Will call tonight.
