“The New Era Begins.. 7/23 #MC723,” Mariah Tweeted in a simple tease yesterday.

With her latest single hitting the top of the charts in 30 countries, the superstar will soon head off on a world tour. Dates and details have not yet been announced.

But let's hope she has fixed her wardrobe by then.

Ah, live television and Mariah Carey.

As many American Idol viewers found out this season, these can make for a dangerous combination.

During an appearance today on Good Morning America, the singer first complained about being awake at the early hour of 8:30.

She then suffered a mini wardrobe malfunction when the back of her Donatella Versace popped and her handlers scrambled to keep her breasts in place. Watch Lara Spencer try to work through the craziness now:

Later, Carey awkwardly held her mic pack as she crooned "Always Be My Baby and then grew frustrated enough during another mishap to yell: "Oh s--t! You didn't hear that."

Sorry, Mariah, we did. And somewhere Nicki Minaj is laughing her glitter-covered rear end off.

Mariah Carey went from the judging table to the stage on last night's American Idol finale.

The panelist - who will almost certainly be replaced next season - belted out a medley of hits and reminded fans why she is the most successful female vocalist in the history of music.

From "Hero" to "We Belong Together" to her latest single "#Beautiful," Carey was on top her lyrically impressive game.

Watch her do her talented thing now and then also check out former judge Jennifer Lopez and her finale rendition of "Live It Up."

It's a busy time for Mariah Carey.

She's renewing her vows with Nick Cannon. She's fighting off insults from Nicki Minaj. She'll likely be sending out resumes for a new job once American Idol Season 12 comes to an end.

But the superstar still found time to shoot the official music video for her latest single, as "#Beautiful" finds Mariah teaming with Miguel and writing around on a motorcycle.

That's pretty much the extent of it. Watch the video now:
