Mariah Carey Delays Album Release, Blames 'Creative Process'

Mariah Carey is delaying the release of her upcoming CD The Art of Letting Go because she had some type of creative epiphany and doesn't want to, you know, let go of it.

Or something? Here's what she said yesterday on Twitter:

While making this album, I got so immersed in the creative process that I just don't feel I would be doing it justice to release it on 7/23.
Carey failed to announce a new release date for the CD. Annoying! But since her new single, "Hashtag Beautiful," was really good, let's give her the benefit of the doubt on this one.

    an Album delay won't affect her she's been around long enough it's not like it's a new artist who's shelf life is short. It may annoy the fans but they've learned to deal with album delays before the Emancipation Of Mimi was initially supposed to be released in November 2004 but was pushed back 4 months to April 2005 still becoming her best selling album in the US since Daydream and 3rd over all now having sold 5.993.000 copies while Daydream is at 7.67 million and Music Box is at 7.3 million through sound-scan it's probably only a couple of weeks later my guess is August 13th as long as the 2nd single comes shortly the few extra weeks of waiting won't hurt
