Carey blames ‘everybody’ for ‘chaotic’ performance
New York, Feb 23 (IANS) Singer Mariah Carey says she blames everybody, including herself, for her notorious New Year’s Eve performance when she walked off the stage in Times Square due to a technical default during her act.
“It was a mess, and I blame everybody. And I blame myself for not leaving after rehearsal,” the Grammy winner said in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, reports eonline.com.
“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–king stage. I’m sorry.”
After that performance in New York, she is trying her best to move past it, even if some people will never understand the situation.
“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,” she said.
“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.”
