The talk of New Year’s Eve has been the utterly horrible performance from Mariah Carey in Times Square, which she attempted to blame on the producers of the popular Dick Clark Productions.
The former pop sensation completely botched the lip-synched show after failing to do a sound check and even having been carried onto the stage by her boyfriend and backup dancer, according to MailOnline. In the wake of the embarrassing performance, Carey attempted to blame the production company for “sabotaging” her show, claiming they caused her ear piece to fail and falsely led her to believe things would work just fine.
She should have kept her mouth shut…
According to a new report from TMZ, Dick Clark Productions has responded to Carey’s accusations, and she’s probably not going to like what they had to say.
Dick Clark’s people say Mariah’s claim the production company sabotaged her New Year’s Eve performance is “defamatory,” adding it’s also “outrageous and frankly absurd.”
As we reported, Mariah’s people say they repeatedly told production people her earpiece was not functioning but they ignored the warnings and even falsely led the singer to believe everything would work fine when she hit the stage. Suffice it to say … the performance was a disaster.
Dick Clark Productions says, “In very rare instances there are of course technical errors that can occur with live television, however, our initial investigation has indicated that DCP had no involvement in the challenges associated with Ms. Carey’s New Year’s Eve performance.”
The company is also threatening a lawsuit if she keeps it up.
In other words, Ms. Carey needs to focus more on singing and less on blaming others because she sucks. Her attitude is an example of what’s wrong with this country- nobody wants to take responsibility for their actions – and it’s good to see that Dick Clark Productions is willing to take her to task if she keeps it up.
After all, it’s a lack of consequences that have led to people acting this way, so the best way to stop it is to remind them that they, and they alone, are responsible for the choices they make.
Normally we wouldn’t cover stories like this, but when someone ruins a major performance on New Year’s Eve then blames someone else, they deserve to be called out, and she ruined her performance bigly.
