Read This: Mariah, Miranda and Barbra, Oh My!

Good afternoon, everyone, and happy Diva Day.

Chris Richards says Mariah Carey's new album, "Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel," is . . . well, imperfect. "Despite the beaming trifecta of Mariahs adorning the CD cover" -- and a cover of Foreigner's 1984 hit "I Want to Know What Love Is" -- Richards declares the album "a breakup disc overrun with plodding kiss-offs and treacly tear-jerkers."

On the bright side, Carey sounds younger than ever -- and one track, breakup jam "Up Out My Face," boasts these irresistible lyrics: "If we were two Lego blocks, even the entire Harvard graduating class of two-thousand-and-ten couldn't put us back together again!"

Meanwhile, Allison Stewart reviews new offerings from both Miranda Lambert and Barbra Streisand.

Elsewhere in Style: Roman Polanski vows to fight extradition to the U.S., setting the stage for an international legal struggle over his fate. (He is currently in custody in Switzerland, arrested there Saturday on charges of fleeing a 1978 sentencing for unlawful sex with a minor in Los Angeles.) Robin Givhan sends along another dispatch from Fashion Week in Milan. And former Congressman Wayne Gilchrest's latest project is teaching kids to appreciate nature.
