Mariah Carey “blames everybody” for her botched New Year's Eve lip-sync performance
Mariah Carey has opened up about her disastrous New Year’s Eve performance.
The singer had an epic meltdown in front of millions after botching her headline performance at America’s biggest New Year’s party.
Speaking about the show, which was cut short after being plagued with technical difficulties, Mariah said she “blames everybody”.
The singer explained: “I don’t even want to bring this up too much, but whatever, we’re obviously talking about it, the New Year’s Eve situation – that couldn’t be helped.
“It’s just something where if I can’t explain it to the entire world, then they’re not going to understand it, because it’s not what they do.
“Just like I wouldn’t understand somebody who had a desk job and how to do that. I couldn’t. I literally am incapable of being in the real world and surviving.”
And whilst the 46-year-old year singer “used to get upset by these things”, she insists this was “out of her control” but still puts some blame on herself.

She added to Rolling Stone magazine : “I used to get upset by things. This was out of my control, and had everything not been such a total chaotic mess, then I would have been able to make something happen.
“Even the dancers should have stopped dancing and helped me off the f***ing stage. I’m sorry. It was a mess, and I blame everybody, and I blame myself for not leaving after rehearsal.”
Meanwhile, Mariah previously admitted she was left “humiliated” after the performance.
She said: “I haven’t really addressed the situation that happened on New Year’s Eve, and in time I will. But for now, I want everyone to know that I came to New Year’s Eve in New York in great spirits and was looking forward to a celebratory moment with the world.
“It’s a shame that we were put into the hands of a production team with technical issues who chose to capitalise on circumstances beyond our control.
“It’s not practical for a singer to sing live and 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, and thousands of people celebrating, especially when their ear monitors are not working properly.
“Listen guys, they foiled me, thus it turned into an opportunity to humiliate me and all those who were excited to ring in the New Year with me. Eventually, I will explain this in greater detail than I can give here.”
