“Shit happens”, says Mariah Carey as mic malfunctions mar New Year’s show

Mariah Carey surely must be hoping that her 2017 goes better than 2016 ended.

The pop music superstar endured what can only be described as a massive technical meltdown during her New Year’s Eve performance late Saturday — a fiasco witnessed by thousands in New York’s Times Square and millions more across the United States.

The huge malfunction happened during her performance on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest,” billed as “the last big performance of 2016 by Mariah Carey.”

Wearing a flesh-tone sequined leotard and stiletto platform shoes, Carey paced along the front of the stage while her backup dancers performed acrobatic moves, in what was supposed to have been the evening’s headlining event minutes before the ball dropped to mark the start of the new year.

“I’m going to let the audience sing, OK?” a frustrated Carey could be heard to say at one point during the number. “I’m trying to be a good sport.”

An audio track of her singing could be heard, even as her mike simultaneously picked up the sound of her voice call for technical assistance.

“That was — I’m leaving,” Carey, 46, said in the microphone as the first number ended.

She stayed — but things did not go better during her performance of “Emotion,” one of her biggest hits, and she halfheartedly mimed her way through the number.

Hours later, Carey posted a rueful tweet, summing up the disastrous event.

“Shit happens,” she wrote on Twitter Sunday, with a frownie face emoticon.

“Have a happy and healthy new year everybody! Here’s to making more headlines in 2017.”

Mariah Carey Begged Nick Cannon For Divorce So She Could Remarry- Report

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s divorce was finalized because the singer begged him.

According to the New York Post’s Page Six, the 46-year-old reportedly called her ex-husband pleading with him to sign their divorce papers because she wanted to marry her fiancé the Australian businessman, James Packer. This is believed to have happened just days before she split with the billionaire.

“I want you to sign the divorce papers. I really want to get married to James Packer,” Carey reportedly told Cannon in a phone call.

Carey and Cannon ended their marriage in August 2014 but their divorce dragged on for nearly two years over custody of their twins. However, according to several reports, they finally settled on an agreement.

“Nick and Mariah’s divorce was dragging on and on, mainly because of the back and forth between their lawyers. Mariah’s team brought in [famed L.A. divorce attorney] Laura Wasser, who helped simplify things, but then Mariah called Nick and said, ‘I really want to get married. Will you sign these papers?’ Nick was cool and said, ‘I’m not going to stand in your way. I’ll sign the papers,’” a source told the Post.

But a couple of days later, Carey and Packer’s relationship blew up, and they split.

According to a report by TMZ, Carey and Packer’s lawyers had been negotiating a pre-nuptial agreement, and he was demanding they rush the document after being told it would not be ready in time for a March 1 wedding.

The pre-nup was never signed, and now Carey is demanding Packer pay her a $50 million settlement, because that’s the amount she would have received from the unsigned pre-nup.

Mariah Carey’s HIV-Positive Sister Arrested On Prostitution Charges

The sister of pop star Mariah Carey was arrested on prostitution charges in upstate New York. The Daily Freeman of Kingston reported that 55-year-old Alison Carey was arrested in Saugerties on Friday as a result of an ongoing undercover investigation at a hotel there. Local police said Carey solicited money in exchange for sex from an undercover police officer posing as a possible client.


Saugerties Police Chief Joseph Sinagra told the newspaper that Alison Carey identified herself as the sister of superstar performer when she was arrested. He said an internet search confirmed her claim. He said Carey was a visitor to the town and had advertised her sexual services online, on the adult section of a local website.


According to the Freeman, one such ad, posted at 6:18 p.m. on Friday, contained two photos of Carey and stated, “I’m a pretty lady looking for guys who are looking to have some fun and get into a world of pleasure that other woman just can’t provide to you. Woman with the ability to make the earth move for you and to get you to see stars. Oh, yeah, with me its, ‘It’s such a sweet, sweet fantasy, baby. When I close my eyes, I come and take you on and on.’”


The quotation echoes the lyrics to Mariah Carey’s 1995 hit, “Fantasy.” Neither the hotel where Alison Carey was working nor the website on which the ads appeared were identified.


Sinagra told the Daily Freeman that “based on other stories” found online reporting that Carey is HIV positive, people who had sexual encounters with her, particularly if it included unprotected sex, were urged to contact their doctors.

Carey is due in Saugerties Town Court on Aug. 30. It wasn’t immediately clear if she had an attorney who could comment on the charges. Mariah Carey has not commented publicly about her sister’s arrest.

‘Mariah Carey Would Soon Die Like Whitney Houston From Drug Use’ – Mariah’s Brother Speaks Out

MARIAH Carey’s brother fears her drinking will kill her, claiming the star could end up like doomed singer, Whitney Houston.

Carey’s brother, Morgan — who hasn’t spoken to the singer in two years — fears the star is unable to care for her four-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe because he believes she is trying to numb her problems with alcohol.

Alleging that she has been a heavy drinker since suffering from mental health problems in 2001, Morgan said: ‘Mariah was drinking through her pregnancy, even while she was nursing. I can’t say that I have ever been around her when she was sober, and that’s very scary.’ Morgan also claimed his 45-year-old sister takes a daily cocktail of medications including Zyprexa, Ativan and Depakote, and fears she will ‘die like Whitney Houston’.

He added to the National Enquirer magazine:
‘She does not have a support system, and she is not mentally capable.’ Morgan is concerned the ‘Without You’ singer has ‘pushed away the only people who’ve been trustworthy and will blame her entourage if anything does happen to her.’ He said: ‘If my sister turns up dead … I’m not going to look the other way! Anyone who’s filling her glass is jeopardising her life!’

Mariah’s brother also branded her estranged husband, Nick Cannon a ‘crock of s**t’ who wasn’t good for his sister and was only interested in money. He said: ‘Nick listened to people who said, ‘Get with Mariah, she thinks you’re cute, have kids and ride it to the bank.’ Nick was there for the cash from day one. He doesn’t give a damn about Mariah.’ ‘Nick took tremendous advantage of her and continues to do so.’­­­­­­­…

Nick Cannon Covers ‘Mariah’ Tattoo With a Massive Back Piece.

Three months after officially filing for divorce from Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon has completely covered up the tattoo he got shortly after they got married in 2008.

Back in October, Cannon masked the word “Mariah” inked across his shoulder blades with the image of a crucifix. Now he’e elaborated further, spending 30 hours in a chair to get a tat so elaborate it covers nearly his entire back. It’s so majestic it earned him the cover of Urban Inkmagazine.




The entire process was documented by photographer Pep Williams for a spread that will appear in the magazine’s new issue.


While Cannon already had the crucifix, he made considerable additions to it, including two cherubs on either side, representing his children Monroe and Moroccan, and script that reads, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do” on his lower back.




Tattoos are nothing new for Cannon, but he’s been on something of a kick of late, Instagramming pictures of himself getting work done on his arm just two weeks ago and then again four days ago.

“Whatever you’re doing in that moment and you’re feeling in that moment, embrace it. You’re gonna have to live with it, but it’s just a decision,” Cannon told Yahoo Tuesday about his tattoo decision-making process. “I live my life like that and I make spur-of-the-moment decisions quite often and I want my being to express that; so it’s one of those things where people are saying, ‘Oh I can’t believe you did that,’ or ‘That’s scary.’ I love that. I like going against the grain.”

Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon Lawsuit: Ex-Nanny Claims She Was Fired After Showing Twins ‘Too Much Affection’

In the lawsuit filed in New York district court Wednesday, Simonette DaCosta claims she worked for Carey and Cannon as a nanny, caring for the couple’s twins Monroe and Moroccan — but was fired after showing the tots too much attention. And as the suit paints things, Carey kept DaCosta pretty busy.

“Ms. Carey would often call Plaintiff at hours in the middle of the night and demand to be taken to her children or to be updated as to the status of her children,” said legal papers obtained by TheWrap. “Mrs. Carey would not tolerate any delay when she called and Plaintiff had to attend to her every demand, spontaneous or otherwise, whether called upon during the day or in the middle of the night,” the lawsuit reads.

That all changed, the lawsuit says, when “Mrs. Carey terminated Plaintiff after berating her for exhibiting too much affection towards her children.”
