Mariah Carey ‘Mortified’ After NYE Performance

6th Biennial UNICEF Ball - Arrivals

Just when we thought that Mariah Carey’s NYE performance debacle was going to go away—Mariah is chirping all about the unfortunate incident. “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,” MC told EW! And donlt expect this to stop her from doing live shows, “It’s not going to stop me from doing a live event in the future. But it will make me less trusting of using anyone outside of my own team.”
Mariah’s manager, Stella Bulochnikov still thinks she was sabotaged for ratings! “I asked him (Producer Mark Shimmel from Dick Clark Productions) why would they want to run a performance with mechanical glitches unless they just want eyeballs at any expense … It’s not artist-friendly, especially when the artist cut her vacation short as a New Year’s Eve gift to them.” She adds they could have cut to commercial when the audio issue became serious.”That says to me they wanted a viral moment at any expense.”
