Mariah Carey is not done talking about her debacle of a New Year's Eve performance.
And you REALLY need to see what she had to say about it this time.
The legendary artist took to the iconic Times Square stage on December 31 as part of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, prepared to entertain fans with a couple of her number-one hits.
But there were some technical difficulties as Carey tried to lip-sync, only for it to become apparent that she didn't really know the words to her own singles.
"We're missing some of the vocals, but it is what it is … I'm gonna let the audience sing," Carey rambled at one point, adding:
"We didn't have a sound check for this New Year's baby."
No description of ours can do this "performance" justice. Refresh your memory and watch it for yourself below:
In the days following this trainwreck, members of Carey's team claimed that ABC producers actually set up the singer to fail. For the sake of ratings? We guess?
And after shrugging off the embarrassment as "shit" that "happens" via Twitter, Carey spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the collapse and said:
"I’m of the opinion that Dick Clark would not have let an artist go through that and he would have been as mortified as I was in real time."
Okay then. If that random observation makes her feel better...
Now, Carey has once again brought up the failed performance in a chat with Rolling Stone, offering up one nugget after another that need to be read in order to be believed.
“This was out of my control, and had everything not been such a total chaotic mess, then I would have been able to make something happen," Carey explained of the aborted three-song set.
"Even the dancers should have stopped dancing and helped me off the f-cking stage. I’m sorry. It was a mess, and I blame everybody, and I blame myself for not leaving after rehearsal.”
Yes, Mariah Carey blames EVERYBODY for what transpired.
Including herself? Well, only for not ditching the entire concert earlier after all these people who were not her messed up so badly.
But that wasn't even the most hilarious/insane/diva-like response Carey delivered in this Rolling Stone article.
“It’s just something where if I can’t explain it to the entire world, then they’re not going to understand it, because it’s not what they do,” said Carey.
Fair enough, to some extent.
We're sure we don't understand the pressures of performing on live television; nor can we relate to everything that goes into planning such a concert.
But then Carey hit us with the greatest quote any famous person has ever uttered...
Just like I wouldn’t understand somebody who had a desk job and how to do that. I couldn’t. I literally am incapable of being in the real world and surviving.
Literally, people! Mariah Carey would drop dead if she had to work in an office.
The thing is, this is sort of why we adore Mariah Carey.
As she proved over and over and over again on episodes of Mariah's World, she really is this spoiled and out of touch.
While other stars may try to relate to their fans or pretend to be some kind of down to Earth homebody, Mariah is always true to who she really is.
Granted, that person is a total and complete diva to the infinite degree.
But remember when Kim Kardashian was slammed for acting poor in a series of social media photos?
In the eyes of many fans, the worst thing a star can do is pretend to be something he or she is not.
No one will ever fire this charge at Mariah Carey, that's for sure.
She is who she is. That person sort of sucks, but at least we know how to put her in her place if she really gets on her nerves:
Just give her a office job!
