Mariah Carey is set to perform for the first time following her disastrous New Year’s Eve appearance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest.
She tweeted the news on Monday afternoon, informing her fans that she will be singing her latest single “I Don’t,” featuring YG on Wednesday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!
“Going to perform my new song #IDont on @jimmykimmellive this Wednesday! See you soon @jimmykimmel!” she captioned with a photo of she and Kimmel in a bathtub.
On New Year’s Eve during her three-song set, Carey had a series of mishaps during her performance, becoming frustrated with malfunctions with her sound and vocal track.
While performing her 1991 hit “Emotions,” Carey stopped and told the crowd to finish singing, citing issues with her ear piece. After the incident, she tweeted, “Sh*t happened. Here’s to making more headlines in 2017.”
Carey later told her fans in an audio message that she was going to take some time off.
“I’m gonna take a break from media moments, social media moments. Although I am going to fulfill my professional obligations, this is an important time for me to finally take a moment for myself and to deal with my loved ones and to prepare for my upcoming tour in March… I can’t wait to sing for you again.”
For what it’s worth, we applaud her for keeping it pushing and hitting that stage again. Thankfully Jimmy Kimmel is not actually a LIVE show.
No Joke: Bill Cosby Is Back On Stage Doing Stand-Up
We are not trying to shame the elderly, but we are super confused why Bill Cosby is back on stage doing stand-up. He is after all 80-years old and going blind, but apparently that’s all apart of his routine.
Cosby did a set on Monday at LaRose Jazz Club in Philly and poked fun at his visual impairment amongst other personal anecdotes. He didn’t touch his pending trial, but many suspect his resurgence into the public eye is all a ploy to revitalize his image.
Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.
Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.
The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
