Mariah Carey Slams NYE Production Team Who ‘Foiled’ Her, Announces Break From Social Media

One week after her headline-making New Year's Eve performance, Mariah Carey is finally speaking out in her own words. 



The pop diva released an audio recording on Twitter, explaining her side of the story for the first time after suffering technical difficulties on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.

"I haven't really addressed the situation that happened on New Year's Eve, and in time I will. But for now, I want everyone to know that I came to New Year's Eve in New York in great spirits and was looking forward to a celebratory moment with the world," the GRAMMY winner said in the recording. "It's a shame that we were put into the hands of a production team with technical issues who chose to capitalize on circumstances beyond our control."

Carey, who has admitted to singing along with a pre-recorded track during the festive performance, added, "It's not practical for a singer to sing live and be able to hear themselves properly in the middle of Times Square with all the noise, the freezing cold, the smoke from the smoke machines, and thousands of people celebrating, especially when their ear monitors are not working properly."

The "Emotions" singer went on to accuse the production company of purposefully sabotaging her, saying, "Listen guys, they foiled me, thus it turned into an opportunity to humiliate me and all those who were excited to ring in the New Year with me. Eventually, I will explain this in greater detail than I can give here."

Carey ended by thanking her fans and announcing that she will be taking a brief hiatus from life in the spotlight.

"I'm going to take a break from media moments, social media moments," she said, adding, "Although I'm going to fulfil my professional obligations. This is an important time for me to finally take a moment for myself and to be with my loved ones and prepare for my upcoming tour in March. I just want to thank everyone for their support, thank you to all my industry friends and thank you to my Lambs, you're always there for me. I can't imagine life without you and you'll always be a part of me. I can't wait to sing for you again."


Since the incident occurred last Saturday, Ryan Seacrest, who was hosting the show, spoke out on his radio show, saying, "It is difficult to perform in Times Square. [Carey] knows what Times Square is about. It's complicated. Imagine every single TV outlet in the world was there. So, there's all kinds of technical things going on."


Carey's manager, Stella Bulochnikov, did not accept that explanation, telling ET, "They could have cut to a commercial, they could have edited the West Coast feed to make her look good.So when we say words like sabotage, I'm not saying you intentionally decided, 'Hey! We're gonna sabotage Mariah Carey tonight.'"

Media is a bitch. Take it or live it they can make or Mar your life. Most especially as a public figure. Sha don't offend a soul among them. If they promise to teach u a lesson even if it will take them six months or three years. They will definitely come at you at your grandest hour and make a mess of u. Only God know who she offend ooo. And the person be like "we made u" and "we will teach u a lesson "

MC or any singer might have talent but if u don't get many air plays, and magazines did not gloss over you, u cant break into light. Same thing if u are in light and they wan to kill u, they can!

Media is a beautiful pimp both for musicians, entertainers and politicians. You just need them to have a pop culture edge. If not nah only your four walls go know u.

Typical example of "celebrity" without a plan B.
She still depend on thinking that being pimped by the media is fame & fun. Parading anout with toy boys e.t.c
There's time for everything oh!
Better bow out when the ovation is high!!! (you retire when there's still goodwill from your audience)
Than to be pushed away in disgrace.

Singleness mom,come closer.....closer hun. Oya bring your ear....*whispers* why are you so. Dull?

MrsB said...

Exactly. She isn't petty

MrsB said...

As in. The word 'diva' should be substituted with her name so people can one day say 'Don't be such a Mariah about it.'
Nick Cannon is the MVP. Dunno how he coped with all the 'oh dahlings' the eye on rolls and the pettiness. Gosh

Mariah Carey may still be floating on the corridors of the music/entertainment industry but her career, image and personality is sinking for the wrong reasons and it's only matter of time before she goes down the drain as one of the singing legends with no accolade.
