Mariah Carey’s former choreographer Anthony Burrell is far from pleased with the diva’s latest performance. In fact, he’s calling her out for her lax on stage moves.
During an interview with Complex, Burrell opened up about working with the singer, specifically, how he feels about her latest string of unpleasant and less than stellar performances.
“It’s just typical Mariah,” he told the publication. “Mariah is clear: when she doesn’t wanna do something, she doesn’t do it. She’s performing with lackluster and no fucks given, and it’s taking away her star.”
He continued, “Working with an artist like Mariah, who’s not a mover first, it’s always a challenge to get them to think physically and not just vocally. You always have to keep in mind that they’re a singer first.”
Anthony, who was Carey’s creative director during the filming of her docuseries, Mariah’s World, added, “The priority is not teaching them 100 counts of 8, or endless routines. I wanted to give Mariah a modern push to revamp her, give her a fresher, more modern feel, make her more aware of her body and her lines, and not look like her feet hurt when she’s walking.”
Don’t get it twisted — Anthony, who was fired before the E! series came to an end, hasn’t always has negative things to say about the pop star. Back in January, he wrote on Instagram: Tune into the last episode of #mariahsworld. It’s been a great run! This woman is one of the kindest, most generous women I know. She deserves respect and love. And for her, I will always have just that. #QueenMariah #grateful #ontothenext .”
Did Toni Braxton Try To Upstage Rihanna At Her Own Birthday Party?!
Well, by the looks of it, yes … yes, she did.
Rihanna celebrated her 30th birthday this week and, in true Bad Gal fashion, hosted a swanky soiree for the occasion. As the pictures show, it was a time for drinks, dancing and turning up with her closest gal pals.
It was also a time for Ri Ri to meet her “fav”, Ms. Toni Braxton! In a sweet IG post, Rihanna thanked Toni for making her night “so special.” She also put her on blast for showing up to the party with her sideboob on full display. ” I’ll never forgive you for looking this good at my party tho,” Ri playful posted in her caption. We have to admit though, Braxton came to serve!
