Mariah Carey blames 'everybody' for the New Year's Eve mishap
Mariah Carey has blamed ''everybody'' for her disastrous New Year's Eve performance.
The 'Heartbreaker' hitmaker has described her 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest' gig on December 31 as a ''mess'', and she has claimed it was largely her fault for ''not leaving'' after her rehearsal, but she also believes she shares the blame with her team too.
Speaking about the mishap, the 46-year-old powerhouse said: ''It was a mess, and I blame everybody. And I blame myself for not leaving after rehearsal.''
And the singer believes her backing dancers should have acted when they noticed she was out of time during her rendition of 'Emotions' by dragging her off of the stage, although Mariah felt her performance was ''out of [her] control'' and too far gone to turn it around.
She explained: ''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.''
Although Mariah - who has five-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with her former partner Nick Cannon - doesn't want to remember the embarrassing moment, she feels she has to talk about the incident because she wants her supporters and the audience to ''understand'' what really happened.
She told Rolling Stone magazine: ''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.
''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.''
