Whitney was more beautiful. She was a model and actress before she became a singer. She had that thin healthy physique and naturally pretty face that didn't need makeup or big hair to make it look better. She was the full package: beauty, charisma and talent. She was a much more lively performer that had some rhythm and oomph too.
Mariah was just hair, makeup and big tits. Her face is nice but kinda plain. She was also lighter-skinned and ethnically ambiguous which made her perceived as "attractive for a Black girl" because of colorism. Mariah turned herself into a walking sex doll oohing and aahing in her songs like a porn star to keep up with the 2000s which was all about slutty pop and rap music. Mariah is a cold fish on stage too and lip syncs.

This question is shitty because they were both beautiful. But definitely Mariah Carey. There is a reason why biracial women are well represented in media compared to their frequency in the general US population. They usually have the best features from their black parent and the best features from their white parent and it makes a supermodel. Rihanna, Doja Cat, Naomi Campbell, Zendaya, Drake, Lisa Bonet, Halle Berry, Rashida Jones, and many others. Great personalities and character too, because growing up they never fit in with the whites or the blacks. Barack Obama, not a model, but definitely not bad looking.

Mariah was cute with big boobs and long hair. Her mixed appearance made her "exotic" and she hoed herself in her videos a lot. She was sultry and slutty but never truly beautiful. She fit the MTV sex doll look like Britney, Christina, Jessica, Beyonce and J Lo.

R79 Naomi Campbell and Rihanna are not biracial. Naomi has some Chinese and white (common in Jamaica) but looks completely African and she was beloved because she was so dark-skinned with unambiguously Black features. If Rihanna is a quarter Irish but if didn't have green eyes, nobody would think she was biracial. Halle looked just Black before her nose job. Drake is not handsome.
Biracials fit in more with Black people because majority of Blacks are mixed just not 50-50 mix. African-Americans are 20% white on average.

Phyllis Hyman was the full package. She predates Whitney a bit. Angela Bofill was the original exotic way before Mariah and predates Whitney a bit as well.
Man. Whitney Houston was gorgeous and she had a majestic singing voice as well as a natural acting ability. She was a rare talent. Unicorn rare. She was a natural born triple threat. Poor thing. Bless her soul.
Call me a Datalounge Mary but Whitney Houston was tragically and maniacally self destructive.
Mariah is alright. When she first started out she was lovely with her five foot ten inch self and all that nice long and natural hair. Facially she's not working with much past her pretty eyes.
Mariah Carey has actual composition skills. Not as good as Angela Bofill's really but Mariah could actually get into working with other artists as a composer or songwriter if she wanted to.

Mariah was cute in her heyday in an Amy Grant mallrat sort of way but the airs of cuntiness and crazy were always there.... to be real, she would have been forgotten if not for her whistle.
while Whitney was charming in her early career because of her insecurities despite (or in spite of) her fam (like the rumours her aunt could have given Joe Jackson a run for his money) and husband, at least until addiction and multiple disorders took over.

r83 yeah, with the advent of consumer level genetic ancestry sites.. it's always funny to see the reactions of Americans - while some are looking for the exotic noise (noise = small percentages that may not actually be what they're labeled as, just random data from misinterpreted which can vary from test to test, service to service of the small amount of personal genes tested, let alone the comparative sample sizes) - many "Americans" (and minorities in western nations) are looking to claim authenticity to makeup for a largely unknown history. So, you'll find several African Americans that look dark skin yet have a large percentage of European genes (also among native americans with ancestral roots in northeast and more so in South America, where miscegenation was promoted vs the anti-laws of North America, and there's similar patterns in India too but the public where the expected colourism and featurism is reversed to assumptions of native/nationalist authenticity... but it requires an understanding of history and primarily the demographics in close promixity of the location. The south might have darker complexions but had more exposure to international traders while the northerns could be considered more phenotypically diverse yet consistent with their neighbors and viewed as reflective of region. )

Mariah didn’t need to get implants - she’s barrel chested like Patti Labelle and they make her look top heavy. But she was always pretty. Whitney Houston was flat out gorgeous, with a Reed thin model figure and impeccable facial structure. She got most of her looks from her father.
Funny how after it came out that her dad was part African American, Mariah got blonder and blonder with straighter hair too. If she had been born in Latin America, she’d be classified as a white woman. Only in America…

Yeah in Latin America having white blood and looking white makes you a white person even if your parent or grandparent is a person of color. In the US, white people passed laws to prevent this in order to keep themselves "pure." What's white in Latin America would be called light skinned in The US.
That's why so many Latinos come to the US and put white on the census. It's not self hate or denial like some claim. It's more they are of mixed bloodline and there's no specific categories for it on the census (like mestizo, moreno, etc). And being from a culturally Spanish Catholic country they would align more with European identity aka white. Being black or indigenous is also not looked in a positive manner in Latin America. So even the darkest skinned Latino would still claim a biracial identity.

R139 because during her rise to popularity she became a sex symbol. Mariah was the biggest American female popstar in the 90s, and she had big tits. Whitney was beautiful sure, and I'm sure frat guys were in love with her when she was young and and in her prime in the 80s. But she was always had a stuffy style and then she became a cocain addict. The rest is history.

Whitney was absolutely lovely to look at. Up until the drugs and booze took away from her beauty. I do wish that she had stayed away from the wigs and weaves, but it was all about convenience and glamour. I saw her at Humphreys in San Diego when her first album was burning up the charts. She had her natural hair, lightly texturized. Gorgeous young thing, like a gazelle. She carried herself like a young Diahann Carroll. I know that a lot of it was grooming and charm lessons, but man, it worked.
Mariah was pretty, still is. But her fashion tastes have always been unfortunate. And she’s struggling with the battle of the bulge like a lot of us at a certain age. She nor Whitney should have gotten boob jobs.

Whitney in the 80s and early 90s was absolutely stunning. She rocked natural hair and minimal makeup. She had natural glow and presence. And when she had wigs they were tasteful. Then the 90s went on and she got trashier and trashier and started wearing those old lady church wigs. But in her prime, many white men found her beautiful and shocked that a black woman could be so classy and feminine. She was tall and skinny too which got her clowned by some black men who were more into Janet Jackson and Vanessa Williams.
Mariah always looked tacky and was never beautiful. Maybe cute and sexy in doses. Now she looks like a blowup doll.

In the 1980s, she was still quite girlish with baby fat and dressed pretty conservative, she couldn't compare to Whitney, Madonna and Paula yet because they were older and in the prime of their looks.

Janet was always pretty. She didn't really need the nose job just like Halle Berry didn't need hers. Her original nose wasn't anything like La Toya's or Toni Braxton's original nose which I can see the first nose jobs they got as improvement.

I give Whitney credit for not doing super-long hair extensions and long wigs, though.
She was always hot and sweaty on stage, so I think that's why she chose those short wigs. The long wigs would have been so much worse (heat-wise).

Vanessa was a theatre singer more suited to showtunes. She wasn't really suited to R&B but of course being black and fitting the "light, bright" beauty standard then, she was likely told to hop on the new jack swing movement and compete with Janet, Jody and Pebbles. It worked and it helped get her career revival kickstarted and she got to act which is her true passion. But she always wanted to sing jazz and pop standards and ballads. I think she was really good for house songs though like "Running Back to You."
