What in the world happened to Mariah Carey during her New Year’s Eve performance in Times Square? Who is to blame? And will she ever be the same? We need answers!
During the multi-Grammy Award winner’s set during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve in New York City, the pop star suffered a series of malfunctions that has officially become the talk of 2017. Talk about ringing in the new year on a low note … literally.
The first mishap occurred while the mother of two started to sing her hit track, “Emotions.” Off the top, it became very clear that she was lip syncing when you hear the 46-year-old tell her backup dancers, “Just walk me down” while the track played over the top.
It continued to go downhill when the track kept playing and Carey wasn’t singing a darn word. Oops. “We can’t hear,” she then said while attempting to keep up with the audio.
Folks, it didn’t end there.
Carey oddly just stood on stage like a deer in headlights while her dancers danced in circles. “We’re missing some of these vocals, but it is what it is,” she said at one point. “Let the audience sing.”
She added, “I’m trying to be a good sport here.”
And as if the “Emotions” meltdown wasn’t enough, Mariah’s downfall of a performance continued into “We Belong Together.” At one point during the classic song, the performer completely stopped making any attempt to sing.
“It just don’t get any better,” she said before walking off stage. Yikes.
Following the uncomfortable performance, Nick Cannon’s ex-wife posted an “oh well” GIF on Instagram with the caption: “Sh*t happens. Have a happy and healthy new year everybody! Here’s to making more headlines in 2017.”
It’s still unclear what exactly went wrong, but the event representative, Nicole Perna, tells the Associated Press that “unfortunately there was nothing she could do to continue with the performance given the circumstances.”
According to reports, there was some kind of altercation earlier in the day with Carey’s team and the audio producer, who apparently has worked the event for several years. “Every monitor and in-ear device worked perfectly,” Robert Goldstein said in a statement. “ I can’t comment beyond that and don’t know what her nontechnical issue may have been.”
Watch the wildly awkward performance below.
Colin Kaepernick, Steph Curry Want In On Carolina Panthers Ownership!
Colin Kaepernick might’ve just eluded to the desire to own an NFL team over playing for the league.
As Kaepernick’s journey remains unclear with the NFL, one thing is now known for sure, he wants to own a team. But get this, he’s not alone.
Following the announcement by Carolina Panthers owner, Jerry Richardson, that he is selling the team, Diddy immediately started to campaign. “I would like to buy @panthers. Spread the word,” he tweeted. “There are no majority African American NFL owners. Let’s make history.”
In response, not only did Kaepernick tweet that he wants to be part of “the ownership group,” but Golden State Warriors star, Steph Curry, also expressed he wants “in.”
Diddy followed up with,”Holla at me, let’s get it.”
To have a team owned by Diddy, Curry and Kaepernick would flip the league upside down and paint the picture for change. But what could they do for the league?
According to Diddy, if his dream came to fruition, the first thing he would do is address the Kaepernick “situation.” It was last season that the then 49ers quarterback kneeled in protest against racial inequality and police brutality.
The protest sparked national outrage, division across the NFL and even lead to Colin being blackballed — but could Diddy be the answer to the league’s controversial discussion?
The bigger question is; would Colin choose to take the corporate side over the field?
