HERE'S TODAY'S BONUS STORY:

Being a wife and a new mom of twins has kept Mariah Carey pretty busy for the last couple of years.  Now's she looking to make a major music comeback.  As a mater of fact, she sat down with Shape Magazine recently to explain.

Mimi said, "I've started writing songs for a new album, which I hope will come out in 2012.  Getting back in the studio and making music again-which I truly love doing- is the best way to end this crazy year."  It has been pretty crazy.  She not only has been adjusting to being a new mother of two children at one time, but also dealing with Nick's sudden illness.

Non the less Mariah hasn't dropped an album since her 2009 Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, so it's time.  So far there's no actually release date, but I will definitely keep you posted.
