Mariah Carey ‘mortified’ over New Year’s fiasco

Mariah Carey ‘mortified’ over New Year’s fiasco

Mariah Carey has shared her feelings on her flop performance at the televised New Year’s celebrations in New York.

In the footage, which has been shared thousands of times on social media, she seemed to be struggling with her earpiece, appeared to be lip synching to a backing track and performed awkwardly with her backup dancers.

Her management blamed Dick Clark Productions for the mess, saying she was “set up to fail” – which the company has firmly denied.

Now, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Mariah added: “I’m of the opinion that Dick Clark would not have let an artist go through that and he would have been as mortified as I was in real time.”

She said: “It’s not going to stop me from doing a live event in the future. But it will make me less trusting of using anyone outside of my own team.”

Janet Jackson has a new baby boy

In our first baby news of the year…

Janet Jackson has some sleepless nights ahead of her after having her first child at the age of 50.

Her publicist has confirmed the singer and her billionaire Qatari businessman husband Wissam Al Mana were “thrilled” to welcome the infant, Eissa Al Mana.

“Janet had a stress-free healthy delivery and is resting comfortably,” the statement added.

Hope she enjoyed “resting comfortably” as she’s about to be very busy.
