See why we’re reaching for the coffee cake this morning:

  • Word in the blogosphere has it that Mariah Carey will soon be parting ways with her current record label Universal Music Group and will return to Sony in 2012! The diva reportedly has one album left to release under Universal and is said to be coming out later this year. She left Sony, where her career began, in 2000 after her public divorce with then Sony head Tommy Motolla. Perhaps this is a great move for her as she may be getting back to her music roots and we hear that L.A. Reid is being courted for a top position at Sony, too. These two could make sweet music in 2012, bring it on! [TGJ]

  • 2011 is Quincy Jones’ year. After being honored with the nation’s most prestigious medal for the arts, the Tribeca Film Festival is set to pay tribute to him this year. Congrats to Jones on racking up the accolades as of late. [Black Voices]

  • BET Chair and CEO Debra L. Lee has been tapped by Obama to join his advisory board that will guide relationships between private businesses and the government. We love that Obama is tapping our powerful Black women for high positions. [Black Voices]

  • Dr. Maya Angelou explains why she keeps a hotel room in her hometown. In an interview with O Magazine, the wordsmith says she keeps it to work in. “I keep a hotel room in my town, although I have a large house. And I go there about 5:30 in the morning, and I start working. And I don’t allow anybody to come in that room,” she says. [Clutch Magazine]

  • Lauryn Hill’s daughter, Selah is sprouting from her mother’s wings. She recently appeared in the April issue of Teen Vogue. At the age of 12 she has a passion for music — that’s a given as she’s got it in her blood, especially with Bob Marley being her grandfather. [Urban Daily]

  • Sandra Bullock has a large heart. Perhaps larger than any other celeb in Hollywood. Bullock has reportedly donated $1 million of her own coins to Japan. This is the largest celeb donation the Red Cross has received since the earthquake hit. [CNN]

  • Basketball star Amar’e Stoudemire says he loves fashion. “When you put your fashion on — you know, your tailor-made suits or bow ties and fedoras — you feel like you’re swagger.” And boy, we sure do love a well dressed man.[Page Six]
