Mariah Carey is still not over her disaster of a performance during New Year’s Eve in Times Square, when, because of a problem with the audio, everybody realized she was lip-syncing the whole time.
Now, on January 8, the humiliated singer posted an audio rant on her social media in which she continued to accuse Dick Clark Production of sabotaging her in order to skyrocket the ratings of the performance.
“I want everyone to know that came to New Year’s Eve in New York in great spirit and was looking forward to a celebratory moment with the world,” said the diva in her tweet.
“It’s a shame we were put into the hands of a production team with technical issues who chose to capitalize on circumstances beyond our control.”
“It’s not practical for a singer to sing live and to be able to hear themselves properly in the middle of Times Square with all the noise, the freezing cold, the smoke from the smoke machines, thousands of people celebrating, especially when their ear monitors weren’t working at all.”
“They foiled me. Thus it turned into an opportunity to humiliate me,” she added and then admitted that she “cannot deny that my feelings are hurt.”
It’s been over a week since the humiliating event took place but according to the singer she still needs to “take a break” from social media and “take a moment for myself”.
We hear you Mariah but as we’ve reported before, not everyone remembers the same situation taking place that night.
According to an insider, “When she was caught lip synching, everyone started laughing at her.”
“Mariah was saying backstage that she was sabotaged. She told them that she’s never doing it again.”
Later on, another eyewitness claimed that Carey looked “inconsolable” and “is terrified to ever step on the stage again.”
While Mariah Carey is blaming people left and right, the Dick Clark Production company has dismissed her accusations as “absurd.”
