Mariah Carey on Her Battle with Bipolar Disorder

For years and years, we have listened to Mariah Carey's music and even got super excited for her one-night concert in Manila this coming October. But no one knew, until now, that she was actually suffering in silence. Mariah was diagnosed with bipolar II disorder back in 2011 when she was hospitalized for her physical and mental breakdown.

Heady mix of sounds in John Legend’s PH stopover

Sometimes, you want to get lost in love; bathe in it till it overflows," singer-songwriter John Legend said from the Smart Araneta Coliseum stage at the recent Manila stop of his "Darkness and Light" concert tour.
