On Sunday’s “Mariah’s World,” Mariah Carey’s world tour began taking a toll on her relationship to finace James Packer because the two had very little time to spend together. Get the full episode recap below!
Early in the show, Carey sat down with her manager Stella and revealed that her relationship with Packer was becoming stressful because the two are often too busy to see each other. “I feel bad because I didn’t get to spend quality time with him,” the singer told her manager. “I don’t know how we’re gonna be able to put [the wedding] together because we keep pushing things.”
Stella asked Carey if her fiance was “upset” because he “left so soon,” to which she responded, “I don’t know because I asked him if everything was good. I think he had to get back to deal with his own business.” Stella shot back, “I don’t understand. He shows up for five minutes and then he goes?” Carey answered,
Mariah Carey’s iconic hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You” has made her the undisputed queen of the holiday as far as music is concerned, but the singer wasn’t quite able to keep the momentum going when she performed during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve in NYC on Saturday night.
After taking the stage in Times Square, Mariah, clad in a glamorous sequined leotard and heels, suffered a lip-syncing mishap to “Auld Lang Syne.” Then, as the music changed to her 1991 hit “Emotions,” she appeared visibly frustrated as she walked around the stage and repeatedly asked for monitors to be turned on during her performance.
“Trying to be a good sport here,” she said about the technical glitch, explaining, “We didn’t have a check for this song. . . we’re missing some of the vocals, but it is what it is.
I’m just going to let the audience sing. We didn’t have a sound check for this New Year’s baby, it is what it is.
” Before leaving the stage, Mariah could be heard saying, “I wanted a holiday too, can’t I just have one?” A few hours after her performance, she took to social media to vent writing, “Shit happens 😩” alongside a GIF of her shrugging.
“Have a happy and healthy new year everybody!🎉 Here’s to making more headlines in 2017 😂.”
Mariah Carey promised to deliver three new Christmassy music videos by Christmas Day 2016 and she has kept her word.
If last Friday we could enjoy the provocative “Here Come Santa Claus” video, Mother Mimi premiered the two remaining videos, those for her renditions of “Silent Night” and “Joy to the World“, at different hours on Saturday (Christmas Day’s Eve).
In both of the new music videos Miss Mariah Carey can be seen wearing a stunning long white dress studded with several Swarovski crystals and pearls and performing “Silent Night” and “Joy to the World”, golden mic at hand, really emotionally and powerfully with the help of a gospel choir and a pianist.
