Mariah Carey Fans Are Cheering For Taylor Swift For Knocking ‘Despacito’ Out Of #1 And It’s Hilarious

After spending 16 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, tying the all-time record set by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men for their hit song “One Sweet Day,” the summer smash “Despacito” has finally been knocked down to second place. Billboard reported on Tuesday that Taylor Swift’s new song “Look What You Made Me Do” had jumped from its #77th debut spot to #1 in just a week, knocking “Despacito” to second place. Twitter took notice.

Some were just as unamused as this little girl:

She was just trying to nosh on some mac-n-cheese when Snow Felicia walked up. Bye, Ms. White.

Some lumped it in with bigger, sadder news.

Sad way to start the month, indeed. Although Hispanic Heritage Month is from September 15th to October 15th, this pain will definitely linger for the next 10 days.

Some were more interested in keeping Mariah Carey’s record intact.

Mariah “Nunez” Carey will be fine, she’s got plenty of records to keep her warm.

People were also reminded that Justin Bieber was on the remix.

Although the “Despacito” music video made it to over 3 billion views without Bieber in it at all, there was a time when he was getting all the praise for helping the song reach #1, even though he couldn’t even really sing it…

It was a good run while it lasted, and though they didn’t surpass “One Sweet Day,” it at least tied, cementing the song’s spot in history.

Feeling the “Despacito” blues? Listen to it being played on two calculators, that should cheer you up.

Updated September 29, 2020.

Mariah Carey’s personal life has always been about as elusive as the chanteuse’s voice itself. Throughout her decades-long career, fans of the singer have wondered about the men who fall at her feet. From her two marriages to different engagements, even a mysterious potential romantic tête-à-tête with Eminem, Carey has had a life filled with all kinds of loves and relationships but for the most part, kept her lips sealed about them.

Now, the singer is opening up about them in her new book.

In her new book, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, the singer shared how her marriage with Cannon fell apart.

In her new book, Carey recalls how she never planned on being a mother before she finally met Cannon and his ″perpetual teen spirit.” At the time the “We Belong Together” singer says that she was not in any way experiencing baby fever but her feelings changed soon after the two artists got together. ″Our desire to have children became a force of nature and why we got married so quickly,” Carey wrote in her book.

Carey and Cannon got together while shooting her music video for her song “Bye Bye” and married two months later in The Bahamas. Just a few years after, Carey gave birth to their fraternal twins, Moroccan and Monroe, on April 30, 2011. In 2014, the couple announced that they had called it quits and finalized their divorce in 2016.

Carey described meeting Cannon during the Teen Choice Awards when he presented her with a surfboard award.

In her book, she recalled that she had heard the comedian had ″all these nice things″ to say about her. Soon after he told her ″With a genuine beaming smile and a flame in his eyes… ‘If you give me a chance, I’ll prove all of it is true,’″ Carey wrote describing it as ″A cute moment—very.”

Carey explained that unlike her first marriage with Tommy Mottola, she and Cannon shared a power dynamic that “felt even″ and shared that Cannon made her feel “safe.”

″He was a good guy. He was faith-based. He was ambitious,″ she wrote. ″He had been in the entertainment industry for a long time, so he understood the madness. He paid attention to me.”

Ultimately Carey says that the divorce took two years to finalize because ″honestly, I think Nick and I could have worked it out between the two of us, but egos and emotions got inflamed (which can translate into many billable lawyer hours, and ultimately it did)… It was tough. We both wanted to make sure everything was cool for our family. We will always be family, and we make it work.″

Fortunately, according to Carey’s book, the two remain amicable these days and manage to co-parent their children with love.

Earlier this month, in an exclusive clip from The Oprah Conversation, Carey revealed that a relationship with New York Yankee Derek Jeter in the late ’90s led her to leave her ex Tommy Mottola.

Speaking about Jeter, Carey described him as a “catalyst” in her decision to leave Mottola after being married to him for five years.

“Before you divorced Tommy Mottola, you met Yankee baseball player Derek Jeter, and you say he served a very high purpose in your life,” Oprah observes in her interview with Carey which calls on her upcoming memoir The Meaning of Mariah Carey. “This was one of those situations of the right person at the right place and the right time. What was it about Derek? He got his own song too, right?”

Responding to Oprah’s question, Carey admits “He got his own song. He got a few songs. He was a catalyst that helped me get out of that relationship because I believed that there was somebody else,” she explained “It was the racial situation, his mom is Irish, his dad is Black. But he was also very ambiguous looking to me. I didn’t know who he was, we met and I’ve written songs about it.”

“And honestly, I don’t think it was like, ‘Oh my gosh, he was the love of my life,'” Carey went onto admit. “Like, at the time I did, because I didn’t think I would ever meet anybody who wouldn’t- What’s the word? I used the word, I just thought about this last night. Not looked down on but feel superior to me because of the fact that I’m not one way or another in most people’s minds, and they have preconceived notions, whatever… But he was a catalyst. And I think that it was beautiful.”

Carey revealed that Jeter’s biracial family changed how she felt about her own.

“And they changed my viewpoint that ‘Oh, it’s because of the biracial situation that my family is so screwed up,’ as opposed to ‘it’s them.’ And yes, those things did play a huge part in their dysfunction. But it was healthy for me to see a functional family that basically kind of looked like mine, but didn’t feel like mine,” she admitted. “And he was also living his dream job and doing his dream job. I believe we connected in that way.”

Last month, Carey told Vulture in an interview that she wore a “buttery leather Chanel skirt” the first time she kissed Jeter.

“I can never forget that moment,” she explained. “I mean, it’s not like it was some intensely deep, intellectually stimulating — again, it was a great moment, and it happened in a divine way because it helped me get past living there, in Sing Sing, under those rules and regulations.”

Carey’s new book, which comes out at the end of this month, follows her “her meteoric rise to music superstardom” and the struggles she faced as a result.

“It took me a lifetime to have the courage and clarity to write my memoir. I want to tell the story of the moments,” Carey shared in a July post on Instagram. “The ups and downs, the triumphs and traumas, the debacles and the dreams that contributed to the person I am today.”

The Meaning of Mariah Carey will debut on shelves on Sept. 29.

Sean Hannity Tried To Pronounce ‘Despacito’ And, Well, It’s Not Totally Surprising

Sean Hannity Tried To Pronounce ‘Despacito’ And, Well, It’s Not Totally Surprising

The Late Late Show with James Corden / YouTube

Everyone could not stop talking about Joe Biden playing “Despacito” at a recent event. Even Fox News, of course, couldn’t stop talking about it but Sean Hannity made the news on social media. It isn’t because of how he talked about the story. Instead, it was about how he pronounced the song.

Sean Hannity had a real problem with Joe Biden playing “Despacito” at a recent campaign event.

Vice President Biden was in Kissimmee, Florida at a campaign event at the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month when he played “Despacito” in the microphone from his phone. Biden was panned across social media with claims that he was pandering to the Latino community by playing the song. However, it is important to note that Luis Fonsi, the singer of the song, had just introduced him so it seems like a playful moment.

First, some people are really impressed that these are scandals right now for Biden.

President Donald Trump responded to the moment by tweeting a doctored film. The president found the time to find a video where “Despacito” is replaced by N.W.A.’s “F— Tha Police.” The video feeds into President Trump’s campaign against Biden claiming that the former vice president supports defunding the police. Biden has spoken on the issue and is not in favor of defunding police wanting to add to the law enforcement budget.

Some people are curious about how Hannity made it so long without ever hearing the song.

We all remember the times of “Despacito.” The song was on the radio waves on every channel for months. There was no escaping the song because it was everywhere. Somehow, Hannity managed to live during this time and managed to not hear the song as much as the average American.

American truly wants to know how he managed to mispronounce one of the biggest songs in the world.

Like, even Justin Bieber learned how to pronounce the song. It is probably one of the most known Spanish words thanks to Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee making it the song of the summer when it was released. The singers even say is slowly and break it down to the syllables.

Of course, this led people to assume how he pronounces other Spanish words that most people know.

We all know people who can’t properly pronounce some Spanish words. Now, there is nothing wrong with mispronouncing a Spanish word. People who really try are often left working on their pronunciation. However, people are surprised that someone could mispronounce such a widely known word.

The moment has reminded some of another famous mispronunciation on Fox News.

In October of 2018, Lou Dobbs was talking to his viewers about the migrant caravan making their way through Mexico heading to the U.S. While reporting on the caravan, Dobbs tried his best to pronounce Huixtla and what came out was definitely not that.
