Mariah Carey has some decisions to make this morning. Her Las Vegas debut at Caesar’s Palace is on May 6th. That’s in three weeks. Yesterday, according to Page Six, her publicist of 15 years, Cindi Berger, resigned. Mariah, meantime, is being photographed in all kinds of vacation locales, but not in Las Vegas. You do the math.
Mariah recently signed a new contract with Epic Records-Sony Music, her original home, after a long run with Island DefJam. But her last couple of albums have been non-starters, most especially a soap opera that dragged on with the last one, “Me I Am Mariah.”
No one knows who her manager is at the moment, after she went through Randy Jackson and Jermaine Dupri and a non event with ATO, the company partly owned by Dave Matthews. Mariah remains signed to CAA’s Rob Light, one of the smartest people anywhere, but it’s unclear if she listens to him.
Now comes a scramble. If she can’t get Berger to take her back, Mariah could try and line up with Fran Curtis and Rogers & Cowan. She represents Elton John and the Rolling Stones, among others. For Vegas, Carey needs a team in place. She also needs to get her well known tuchas to Caesar’s for some heavy duty rehearsal. May 6th is right around the corner.
