Mariah Carey has finally told her side of the story about her New Year's Eve performance on "Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest," that was a blunder.
"I’m of the opinion that Dick Clark would not have let an artist go through that," she said while speaking with EW. "He would have been as mortified as I was in real time," she continued.
Mariah also said that the experience has made her lose trust in outsiders. "It’s not going to stop me from doing a live event in the future. But it will make me less trusting of using anyone outside of my own team."
She also thanked her loyal fans for their support. "My true fans have been so supportive and I am so appreciative of them and everybody in the media that came out to support me after the fact because it really was an incredible holiday season that turned into a horrible New Year’s Eve," she added.
Earlier Mariah's camp has blamed Dick Clark Productions for the botched performance saying that her in-ears were not working on the night of the show. But Dick Clark responded, saying they were not at fault.
The diva is scheduled to hit the road with Lionel Richie this year on his "All the Hits Tour," starting March 15 in Baltimore through May 27 in Fort Lauderdale. Carey says she’s "excited" about the trek and that she’s got “so many hits” and some "surprises" in store for the tour.
