"I literally am incapable of being in the real world and surviving."
Miraculously, we are still talking about Mariah Carey's disastrous New Year's Eve performance. Despite Carey mostly redeeming herself with a performance of her new YG-assisted single "I Don't" on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this month, Carey can't quite come to terms with the debacle that kicked off the new year.
"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 tells Rolling Stone. "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. I literally am incapable of being in the real world and surviving."
The tea! Reflecting her initial statement about the ordeal back in January, Carey believes Dick Clark Productions dropped the ball.
"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," Mimi continues. "Even the dancers should have stopped dancing and helped me off the fucking stage. I'm sorry. It was a mess, and I blame everybody, and I blame myself for not leaving after rehearsal."
Welp. That's that.
