Mariah Carey Issues Audio Statement On Shocking New Year’s Eve Performance

Published: Sunday 8th Jan 2017 by Sam

Just as folk had begun to move on from Mariah Carey‘s disaster of a New Year’s Eve performance, the diva is shining light on it…herself.

Following a slew of statements from manager Stella Bulochnikov (and clap backs from the production team at Dick Clark), Mimi has issued her own response.

Hear it below…

Taking to Twitter today, the 46-year-old uploaded an audio statement in which she re-asserts that the technical production at the show were to blame for gaff, which saw her accused of planning to lip sync. She also


Perhaps there was some truth to Tommy Mottolla‘s suggestion that Mariah take on a more professional team.

Because, while there was nothing wrong with her words here, the timing is off. She’s ultimately bringing the whole debacle back to the centre when it had all but managed to slip out of the news cycle.

She’d have been well-advised to service this statement as soon as it happened instead of letting her manager (who we somewhat…like) do interviews on her behalf. Interviews that, though right in intent, may have made the situation worse.

In any case, it’s encouraging to hear that Mariah is planning a media hiatus. Hopefully, the downtime is used to rest her (real) voice and to cook-up a comeback plan. We’re beginning to bore of the theatrics and non-musical ventures. Drop a slay album and auto-remind the masses why they fell in love with you.

    It’s all a publicity stunt to get her in the news and to make her relavent again and to help her flop show. She saw how 2013 inauguration lip sync did wonders for Beyoncé and she wanted to do the same. Only difference is everyone was supporting Beyoncé and no one is supporting MC . You’re MARIAH Carey you don’t need to stoop low . You already have a legacy

      Best selling female artists ever… Mariah, Madonna and Britney.
      These 3 b****** can do whatever they like.
      Have a sit.

    This sets her up for a comeback. Now this has blown up all over media, the next time Mariah is booked to perform at a large televised event, many people will tune in to see if she can deliver. It’s almost as if this was planned. You can only go up once you hit bottom.

    This comment on Billboard about this same report, summed everything perfectly.
    We all understand artists lip-synch especially in big situations like this. But the major problem with her in this situation is her attitude and how she dealt with it totally unprofessionally and trying to throw everyone else under the bus except herself and she even admitted it initially she wasn’t there herself for the sound check! I have seen many other performers handle technical difficulties like that with grace and respect to their fans which is certainly not how she handled it!

    If you don’t shut your stupid a** up. This is real. Her ‘Docuseries’ is doing good enough. She could careless about trying to do what Beyonce did. GTFOH. If she stated this more than once then she must not be playing. She has nothing to prove to anyone. When her manager spoke about it at first, the haters were being haters. Phuck em MC.

    She should do a duet with Ariana Grande

  6. HailLegendBeysus January 8, 2017

    Wow she’s really riding this publicity out isn’t she.

    Damn Mariah went into total Britney Spears mode during this performance. Think it might be time for her too retire. Dont want this to tarnish her legacy.

    The world will always bring you back down to earth when you think flying high. Humble yourself M. Carey

  9. Molly #Stargirl January 8, 2017

    This story is as dead as her vocals Lol

    • HailLegendBeysus January 8, 2017

      Selena got 1m likes on Instagram in 3hrs! Congrats! ??

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler January 8, 2017

      What vocals does the walking Instagram account have?

  10. TruthTeller January 8, 2017

    Listen, Mariah needs to get rid of her new manager Stella. This woman got Mariah to respond to stupid rumors that she never addressed in her entire career like the comments made by old employees, pieces about Stella being rude and unprofessional and even some things that were said by Wendy Williams on her show. This is very strange. Besides this, Mariah lets basically nobody in her inner circle and suddenly Stella shows up everywhere with her. She’s weird in the worst way because she seems to smother Mariah. She and her kids! Apparently they feed off her energetically like vampires and I don’t like that at all… Stella is so fake with that “single, alpha female moms need to stick together and stay close forever” story… She knows she’s a money-hungry creature who only cares about cameras and fame. Does she realize how despicable and unlikeble she is?
    Anyway: those who truly care about Mariah should intervene and kick that illuminatti puppet’s ass (I’m talking about Stella and I’m not playing…)

    ~ Mariah’s statement is cute but even here she’s trying to protect that creature… Lambs, please pray for Mariah to find clarity and see who honestly has her highest good at heart. Please. Also send her love and light if you can.

    Lets be real if Stella wasnt here, she would have shoved this situation away and gone into recluse for a while
    stella you need to go, bye bye

    • Kemar (@S_C_Jr on Twitter) January 8, 2017

      Exactly! This lady is toxic + unprofessional. Mariah is allowing this lady to run her career and her life. She needs to wake up + fire this b*tch! #FreeMariah

  12. Shakira Stan January 8, 2017

    Enough already!
    Like move on, the whole world has moved on too.

  13. Shakira Stan January 8, 2017

    She sounds exactly like Iggy before she lost every shred of relevance. You don’t always have to defend yourself, the public forgets easily, in a few days people would have been talking about something else.

  14. LiLi’n’RiRi January 8, 2017

    HELL NA NA. I feel bad for poor Mariah. Let’s face it stans, it isn’t an unusual occurrence for MC to f*** up. But this time it wasn’t her fault. I believe (even tho the backing track was basically a lead track; lip-syncing) she was going to sing live vocals and if u can’t hear yourself THATS NOT HER FAULT. And Iggy is another situation Shakira Stan. Iggy simply talked WAY too much on Twitter and foiled her relationship with The Invisible Men and hasn’t had a good production team since (meaning she hasn’t had good music since 2014).

    Mariah, girl I love you but you know you’re lying. Your ear-ins weren’t the issue as seeing how I have seen several performances from you in which you have taken those things out your eye and still continued to sing with no problem. More so your dancers didn’t miss a beat, so why couldn’t you sing along? I know it’s cold but you song there in the cold before and so have other singers. I know you know your songs and are creative enough to make up something on the spot, I’ve seen you do it before. You’ve been in the business 25+ you should know how to work through technical difficulties.
    And on another note this isn’t the first time she’s been plagued by playback errors. (Good Morning America Touch My Body)
    I am a Lamb but I’m not a delusional one, I’m not afraid to call Mariah out and try to sweep her wrongs under the wrong like they didn’t happen. That’s problem, Mariah’s team and some of her fans keep treating her like she’s some kind of child and tell her yes all the time. NO!!! She’s a woman grown who will be 47 years old this March. Act your age not your shoe size.

  16. King January 8, 2017

    Well this is first time I agree with 95% of what everyone is saying.
    She needs to not talk about it.
    Either do a free concert to make up for it, hurry and release a single and do a tour like Mimi come on stop responding to this your Mariah Carey.

  17. Theman January 8, 2017

    What would she gain out of having choppy ear pieces? Y’all are really stupid.. This woman stays to herself until folks start to meddle with her. She doesn’t need any comebacks. She’s a bonafide legend! She’ll come hard for certain with her next move..

  18. H0tness January 8, 2017

    Girl. I forgot all about this
