Mariah Carey is brushing off her disastrous New Year's Eve performance with new music, if Epic Records can get in touch with her.
It was the performance not heard around the world, and it's tarnished Mariah's legacy... for now. People are quick to forget / love a good comeback, which opens the door for the elusive chanteuse to blow people away with a new tune and remind them why she's beloved in the first place.
According to a new report from Showbiz411, LA Reid and Epic Records want to put out a new single of hers in the next three weeks, but they're facing a roadblock: her manager, Stella Bulochnikov, is barring all communication with the singer.
Mariah Carey Announces A Break From Social Media Following NYE Performance
“Everything is blocked, all communication, by Stella,” a source close to Mariah tells the site. “Stella has her phone.”
Bulochnikov has faced a wave of heat following the NYE performance. Mariah's ex-husband Tommy Mottola is urging his former flame to surround herself with better management, namely replace Bulochnikov, because they're ruining her career. “My only advice is that she should hire more seasoned and respected professionals to surround her and help her with her career! I would never have encouraged her or guided her to do something like a reality television show!!!!! I don’t get it!!” Mottola wrote, adding, “That does absolutely nothing for her integrity, her credibility, or her massive talent!! She should take a step back, think carefully and figure out what to do next. That is what she does best.. most certainly none of these issues or problems ever existed with her in her early days at Sony for the first 10 years when she skyrocketed to global superstardom!! Where absolutely meticulous and methodical attention was paid to every single detail and nuance that went on into her career!”
Bulochnikov responded: “Really? Tommy is a relic. Did he give you that statement from a rotary phone?”
