    Especially when it's your prime source of income (though I'm sure she's well-off enough to live comfortably without having to work at this point). It seems like she's actively trying to kill her own career. All those years (90's to mid 2000's) of hard work are circling the drain and it seems like she couldn't care less.

    She looks like she downed some "liquid courage" before she was carried () to the stage and that contributed to her "Give-No-F*cks-Itis," but, still, I don't understand how she just didn't/doesn't give a sh*t about how that performance and how she was acting looked to the public.

    Why sign up for a gig if you don't want to do it? (because: money I know but, if you're just going to be difficult and/or cancel, why commit to it?). Why waste everyone's time, energy, and money?
    Speaking of which, I wonder how much she got paid for that "performance" and if they got a refund.

    It doesn't even matter about the money. (Well, I don't know if it does because I don't know what her financial state is personally) She's Mariah Carey. She's supposed to be better than this.

    No sound check? That's just plain stupid. Fat, late, unprepared and lip syncing? And a gig only someone as big a name as her is going to have a chance at? And this happens? That's just goddamned unprofessional. There's no excuse. If she was on something besides all this, that exacerbated things that led to this, then that's even worse.

    Have more respect for your legacy, bitch.

    So tired of weak ass people going out this way. You were given a gift. You just squatted your fat ass and took a giant shit on it.

    Shit happens, indeed.

    Her diva antics are like something out of a bad comedy. Talking about herself in the third person, the smug answers, stuffing herself into dresses that would make a POW look fat...she's morphed into an asshole. She was so fun and so sweet when she first started. I know Tommy Mottola was a bit controlling of her when they got married, but after she left him, she gradually went off of the rails. She surrounded herself with all of these yes people. Maybe Tommy was a control freak, but he was concerned about public perception. It's awful to watch what she's morphed into in 25 years.

    Mariah Carey's Rep Says 'Rockin' Eve' Producers 'Set Her Up to Fail' | Billboardsource refutes the singer's claims.

    Mariah Carey’s troubled performance on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest has left many people asking the question: What happened?

    The singer’s three-song set began promising enough with “Auld Lang Syne,” but went downhill with “Emotion” and “We Belong Together.” Carey claimed during the latter that she couldn’t hear through her monitors. The situation quickly devolved in front of 1 million revelers and a worldwide television audience on ABC.

    Carey took the evening’s performance seriously, rehearsing the night before the show for three hours, according to her representatives. She then rehearsed at 3 p.m. on New Year’s Eve with “no sound issues.”

    Mariah Carey performs during New Year's Eve 2017 in Times Square on December 31, 2016 in New York City.

    “She was not ‘winging’ this moment and took it very seriously,” BWR-PR's Nicole Perna tells Billboard. “A shame that production set her up to fail.”

    The rep says Carey alerted production and the stage managers that her ear piece was not working. “They told her it would be fine once she was on stage,” she says. “However, that was not the case and they were again told that her ear piece was not working. Instead of endeavoring to fix the issue so that Mariah could perform, they went live.”

    Carey was intent on honoring her commitment and therefore took the stage, essentially “flying blind,” the rep continues. As for singing to a track, “it is not uncommon for artists to sing to track during certain live performances.”

    Adds the rep, “Any allegations that she planned to lip sync are just adding insult to injury.”

    But a production source paints a different picture, telling Billboard that Carey, "Had ample time to rehearse and chose not to." The insider adds that Carey used a body double to rehearse in her place earlier on New Year's Eve day and that, even though the singer did not do a vocal run-through, "all was working" on the technical side.

    "The music was provided by her team, there were no fewer than eight audio monitor wedges in front of her and the dancers had no problem syncing up to the music."

    Speaking to the New York Times, audio producer Robert Goldstein of Maryland Sound International, which worked on the event, said, "Every monitor and in-ear device worked perfectly. I can’t comment beyond that and don’t know what her nontechnical issue may have been.”

    Any claim of sabotage for ratings, as TMZ alluded to in a story published New Year's Day, "Doesn't make sense," says the production source, emphasizing that Dick Clark Productions' foremost concern is the artist. "Why would they risk the reputation of a company that's been around since 1957?"

    Billboard has reached out to Perna and Carey's manager Stella Bulochnikov for further comment.

    Mariah was so insanely talented, it's beyond me why she felt she had to turn to an Anna Nicole shtick 24/7. That's the kind of garbage Britney has to do, because she never had a 5 octave range to base her career on.

    Christina Aguilera is another that needs to pump the breaks before she's irreversibly on the Mariah path.

    I mean, this is where Mariah is in life:









    From last night. She's Mariah Freaking Carey, why is she dressing like she just got off the mainstage at Miss Kitty's Bordello?

    The only singer who can leotard it up after 30 is Grace Jones. I don't care how many layers of pantyhose, fishnets, cinchers, lipo, or body contouring makeup there is. Let it all out Grace!

    If Pink, Lady Gaga and even Beyonce (on occasion) can manage to class it up, surely Mariah can.

    One problem is she's so delusional she thinks she's still a "Vision of Love" twig.
