Mariah Carey Explains What Happened on NYE In Her Own Words: 'I Was Foiled'

Mariah Carey is addressing exactly what happened on New Year’s Eve, in her own words.

The 46-year-old entertainer took to her Twitter on Sunday (January 8) to share an audio recording explaining her thoughts on her performance.

“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 spirit 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 capitalize on circumstances beyond our control,” Mariah began.

She went on to explain that factors such as the cold temperature, loud crowds and faulty ear pieces set her up to fail.

Mariah added, “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. …I cannot deny that my feelings are hurt, but I’m working through this and I’m truly grateful for my fans and my true friends who have been so supportive in this time.”

She also stated that she plans to take a break from the media and social media but will continue to fulfill her profession obligations.

    She just keeps digging that hole deeper and deeper. Give it up, Mariah. Go move to a private island somewhere with ur kids and enjoy your money.

    And if “cold temperatures” were a problem….put on more clothes. No one cares that u prance around half naked anymore. The “loud crowds” problem just makes me laugh…maybe choose a different profession lol

  • Penny

    “Foiled”? More like she’s a “fraud”. FYI – If you are paid to sing, then SING! These entertainers who rip people off at concerts by lip synching just p*ss me off. They are ripping people off who pay money to hear them perform.

  • Allure

    someone put this christmas ornament back in storage, no one cares anymore.

    Karma is a bitch, she has been stressed and jealous if any new talented singers.

    Xtina Won!
