Mariah Carey took a media and social media hiatus after her disastrous New Year’s Eve performance until she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week to perform her new single “I Don’t” with rapper YG. Now, in one of her first interviews since the now-infamous incident, the singer spoke with Rolling Stone inside her sprawling home about the performance and what went wrong.
"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,” Carey told Rolling Stone. “Even the dancers should have stopped dancing and helped me off the f---ing stage. I'm sorry. It was a mess, and I blame everybody, and I blame myself for not leaving after rehearsal."
