Mariah Carey’s New Year’s Eve Debacle And The Latest Finger Pointing...

For Mariah Carey, 2017 started off with a bang when her performance in Times Square went off the rails and devolved into a massive, live-TV train wreck. 




Not surprisingly, the diva didn’t shy away from addressing the disaster, nor did she take much ownership of what had transpired. Now that a few days have passed, fingers are being pointed and heads are starting to roll.

On Sunday, Carey’s manager, Stella Bulochnikov, reportedly sent a letter to Dick Clark Productions, saying it tried to “sabotage” the star. “You know her inner ears were NOT working and your entire production team did not set her up to win,” she wrote. She went on to say that Mariah kept telling the crew that something was wrong, but was ignored. “SHE TOOK A HIT HONORING HER COMMITMENT TO YOU. I SHOULD HAVE PULLED HER OFF THE STAGE THIS IS SABOTAGE,” Bulochnikov blasted, according to Page Six. 


She ended the letter with a demand for a formal apology — but that hasn’t happened. Instead, the producers responded by calling the accusation “defamatory, outrageous, and frankly absurd.”


On Tuesday, Carey shared her own feelings about what happened (beyond the “s*** happens” tweet she’d sent out in the early hours of the 1st). “All I can say is Dick Clark was an incredible person and I was lucky enough to work with him when I first started in the music business. 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,” she explained. “It will make me less trusting of using anyone outside of my own team.”


It turned out Carey wasn’t fully confident in her own team either, however. The 46-year-old mother of two axed her longtime creative director, Anthony Burrell, in the aftermath of the performance. “He’s not being brought back [in 2017] for a number of reasons,” a source close to Carey revealed. Allegedly, Burrell moved Carey’s backup singers off the stage for the performance (without her approval), putting them at the base of the risers in order to make more room for the dancers. Apparently, she needed those singers a bit closer.


But a source close to Carey insisted the diva was, indeed, to blame. “It was totally [Carey’s] screw-up,” the source said. “Her assistant came out for the sound check, not her. All her dancers were in step. Everybody else onstage heard the track. Even without [the earpiece] there were eight speakers onstage. It was not the sound people.” The insider added, “She wasn’t even standing where she was supposed to. … There was no [production] reason she couldn’t do it.” What’s more, Carey was apparently supposed to show up at Planet Hollywood after and didn’t.

A second source added that a stand-in did the entire sound check. “Mariah was on the side of the stage, and at the very end — no more than four seconds — she goes up and goes, ‘La-da-dee-da . . . Everything sounds great. Love you, New York,’ and left.”
