Two awards shows in a row she has managed to deliver a zany performance that had folks buzzing.
On January 5, while accepting the Best Supporting Actress Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival for her role in the film “Precious,” she clung to the movie’s director Lee Daniels (who lifted her into the air) before she launched into a strangely paced ramble.
She giggled, she paused, and she sometimes appeared to lose her train of thought.
She wasn’t much better later while conducting an interview with CNN affiliate KPSP.
In response to a question about what winning the award meant to her, Carey said “Wow... I mean... It's a, it's very hard, to umm, express it. I worked, I worked really hard, but then again, I didn't work that long... and I just had to go hard, and do my best. And, uh, I'm so grateful to be a part of this film, because just watching it go all the way is, uh, is amazing. Lee Daniels is just incredible and everybody...(trailing off).”
Carey seemed a bit more focused the following night when she won a People’s Choice Award, though she struggled to even make it to the microphone in her super tight, form-fitting, white mermaid-style dress.
Husband Nick Cannon offered an assist and his wifey in turn offered him her thanks for the help and “for being my best friend and for many other things that I probably shouldn’t mention.”
We're a group of volunteers and opening a new scheme in our community. Your site provided us with valuable information to paintings on. You have done an impressive process and our whole neighborhood shall be thankful to you.
mariah i believe you need to stop obsessing over yourself and grow up you are not 16 anymore dress your age for god sake!!!!! your ass will drop, you will wrinkle, your hair will thin and get gray, your bones will get brittle, your teeth will get yellow and your voice will crack eventually my dear so grow old gracefully before you end up looking like the lion woman wilderstein or frankenstein whatever her name is have kids settle down and be a wife and mimi we are not losers cause if we dont buy your cd's you are NOBODY hotter, richer and more successful you say you forgot to add stupid to the list of your accomplishments i have a masters and a well paid job what do you have idiot – and for your information i dont eat burgers thank you
Well Mariah is Mariah. The only thing I get confused about her is why she wears her close three sizes too small. She has a wonderul shape and she would look better if her clothes fit. She even looks uncomfortable when she sits or walks. She was good in Precious.
what if she wasn't high at all .... what if she really is that mental genius she is showing us!
She needs to buy a neck.
Yes, before she destroys her career... I am no great fan of her music/couldn't tell you one song she sings, but she has more #1 hits than Elvis, Beatles- she's clearly a successful woman and has actually proven she can act (so it appears). Leave her alone. She's a beautiful woman, old enough to dress anyway she likes, and isn't hurting or hating on anyone. She seems happy and healthy – I wish I could have half the life she has.
If anybody listened to Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel they would know, #1: She has a sense of humor and, #2: the lyric, “for being my best friend and for many other things that I probably shouldn’t mention.”
Why you so obsessed with her???????
She looked like a spoiled drunk child. She needs to grow up and act her age.
Ms. Carey was clearly on drugs or intoxicated and it's unacceptable behavior for someone in her position. She's a very talented performer who has a following among young people and should set a good example.
I doubt that she'll appear or be mentioned on American Idol this upcoming season because of this incident.
Look how quickly it took Tiger Woods to go from 'media darling' to 'media pariah' because of his behavior. He's now lost several sponsors and popularity among former fan's. His career will never be the same.
Ms. Carey better get her life together before she destroys her career.
I love the way people say "You need to leave her alone"...If she wanted to be left alone she wouldn't be in the public eye..Is she talented..Yes..Is she intelligent..no...drinking champagne makes you slurr , not act dippy...for christ sakes she is dippy enough without pills..
To mm – were you even watching the same show???? She's an awesome singer – has sold more than ANY other female performer, but she has poor taste in clothing for sure. I agree that is what stylists are for. Queen definitely put her to shame. I'm so tired of ALL celebs acting badly!!!
and Lol at KD's statement
watching it was like watching Anna Nicole Smith .That one year at the awards show when Anna appeared drunk.I think Mariah is was drunk or High.one of the two.
Someone said we shouldn't expect actors/actresses to be ToastMaster... couldn't they act like they can talk and how hard is it to say...... Thank you and goodnight!
First of all, we've all done it , second of all celebs have the right to have a life as well. Oh i felt so bad for her. I'm sure she feels it when she goes into her million dollar residents with her handsome husband. Stop being so judgemental and allow the woman to enjoy her awards. If she wants to wear a dress thats to tight, so be it. I see it all the time all over the place, please
Ok, I agree with most of what has already been said....but did anyone notice how Mariah came out in a ridiculous white dress that she couldn't fit into properly and then right after that, the host, Queen Latifah (who is much heavier than Mariah) came out right after her speech wearing her second gown of the evening – also white (which generally isn't too flattering to us "full figure" girls) and Queen looked FANTASTIC!!!!! The difference was, Queen's dresss was tailored to fit her body beautifully while Mariah's dress was tailored within an inch of her life (literally – it was so tight she couldn't breathe). Queen looked classy, beautiful, elegant, glamorous and just down right wonderful! Mariah looked like trailer trash – trying way too hard to look like a sex symbol (in her mind, she seems to think she's Jessica Rabbit).
I couldn't get past that horrible fitting dress. As I was watched her tip up to the stage I couldn't help to notice the weight that she has once again packed on. Then once she started speaking she sounded so goofy. Then I thought is she pregnant. Women get kind of goofy and clumsly when they become pregnant. I'm wondering if that's her problem especially when she said "and for many other things that I probably shouldn’t mention" while thanking her husband.
She was too cute-at least she did not make an ass out of herself
You know, these awards ceremonies are a lot like business award ceremonies or Christmas parties with work colleagues but the whole world is watching too. It is important that these movie/music stars realize that they're on the clock and they are being judged so they should behave as professionally as they would at an audition. Geez.
Can't sing. Can't act. Getting older by the day....
She has show any talent in at least 15 years. The epitome of over payed.
She's just in love!.
Leave her alone.
SHe is with Nick Cannon of course she's on drugs.
As you keep on saying bad stuff, she keeps on shining.
Power + Money + Talent = People Envy on Her.
Mariah is just happy , in Love and having great sex for once in her life. Leave her alone. And what is the fat comments you should be a shame of yourself. I is 2010 be happy for others and you will have a happy life too.
how many of us can afford that beautiful dress, hair, teeth, have a voice like hers, and have a man that loves you. I really wish her best, take care of yourself Mariah!
I think every body needs to leave her alone
is her life every body has a comment
everybody has there own life so tend to your
Mariah is a talented young woman and sings like an angel. Isn't that what the public pays to hear. You don't get a vote on what she wears or the size. Enjoy her music and over look the rest.
Maybe she get's overwhelmed and it, simply becomes difficult to express it. Oftentimes it's just hard to hold it...people are gonna think whatever they wanna, anyhow; but that's just her. I certainly pray that she is not addicted to anything but GOD.
Talented? She sounds like one of the Chipmunks, which is why she drinks – to get away from it all. When I drink, I feel like I could be Frank Sinatra.
Well i think that she is goofy but at the same time she does look good but at the time she didnt. She looked drunk and high because of all of the things she did and well she liked going that way so its on her !!
Is Mariah Carey a singer or the town drunk???
next stop – return visit trip to rehab – so much $$ and can't keep it together, what a shame.
I really don't understand her ? I did like her ... now NOT so much.
Yeah she is FAT but at least she isnt like these other stars who are
RAIL THIN & have the biggest HEADS , who by the way end up dead
CAUSE they DONT EAT !
I really hope if she does have a problem she gets help ,cause the last
thing i wouldn't want to see is anything fatal happen to her.
Sorry ..... Miriah but you did look stupid up there . WHAT A SHAME
all those years of hard work ..... down the toilet.
I thnk it STINKS that so many of you are so concerned with her weight. What business is that of yours? It is cruel and hateful, and the kind of talk that caused Karen Carpenter to develop anorexia and die.
Just something to talk about. Are all of you so perfect that you would have done better or looked better. Stop all the judging. There are many reasons to seem dissoriented or out of it. Yes, many celebs have gone down a bad path with drugs and booze, but many regular people have done the same. Besides there are many other positions in this world where a person could be a brilliant rocket scientist and have no social skills at all. You see it everyday. Just be happy for each other and try and change the world!
Aw' c'mon.... don't you all know this is another stunt, like Brittany shaving her head, to get America talking about someone who hasn't been talked about in a while? Seems to be working... the agents to the stars create all this crap, and the people play right into their hands. She may not be a MENSA member, but she was smart enough to know that if you haven't saved for retirement, you better get on the Jenny C diet commercials while you can... and what better way than to show up looking and acting like you need a moo-moo and rehab to get it started!
In five years, she will write a book about how she struggled with her addictions and make more bucks.
she isn't pretty, she isn't a size 2 , she doesn't rock and she's not awesome....ony 'high' on whatever!
To Stacy, No, as a matter of fact, I have never been drunk. Growing up with an alcoholic father tends to make you careful about things like that. I am continually amazed at the way these people with incredible advantages can't handle their own good fortune, but hey–that's what counseling and AA are for. And to "MiMi," who posted here, whoever you really are...there is nothing to be jealous of. LOTS of people have talent, or looks, or money, or some combo of the three. I have too much self-respect to waste my time being jealous. All of those things are fleeting. Self-respect lasts.
Why cant you accept she is talented? She might have drank some Möet and might not have eaten, thats all...its not thaaat deep. It can happen to everyone. Dont eat and drink 2 glasses of Moet and you'll get the same results yourselves.
Look at who we are talking about, need I say more...
Nobody likes her for her brains
She's awesome, she rocks....stop hating!
For Christ sake, Miriah, You’re 39 years old.
Start buying clothes for your size and figure, stop whatever drug you’re using and at least try to act like a grownup.
She is just an embarrassment.
By the way, her husband is the one who should be fired from any kind of media..he is a non-talented guy, boring and always act stupid. Tv and Radio should give opportunity to real talents .
She was DEFINITELY on pills. but whatever she's still great!
awww, but she's SO DAMN CUTE!!! Flab!? SO WHAT!!!
Mariah is a prety young lady, who is happy with who she is and excepts who she is.And has a husband who loves her. So if you don't like how she dresses so what. If her wieght is not an health issue. I say live and let live. If she was skinny people would have something to say about that. get a life. There far more in important issue to deal with.
what ever happened to the good old Carey?
Love her voice but something is not right; isn't there someone that could have told her not to wear that dress?
Mariah is so talented, and she is really a nice person. No need to talk about her weight. However, I can't understand, as a great writer, she can't write a short acceptance speech. Maybe she should sing her "thank yous".
Having a good voice is not the same than having a good brain.
mariah is faaaiiiine!
Mariah has always been an airhead and will always be an airhead.
Cant stand her!!! She is a size 12, not 2 and she looks stupid.
I agree with Janice.....Mariah is an 'airhead'....especially the way she was flaunting her diamond rocks while touching her hair on Larry King Live....quite off-putting and extremely artificial.....there are billionaires out there who exemplify humility........
This woman has and always will be a certified nut basket...lay off the pills, champagne or whatever, stop dressing like a 18 year old hoochie, show some class and just sing!
Her performance in this film was lackluster at best. I don't understand why she is winning awards for this performance. Acting is more than not earing a pound of your usual makeup.
well soon the movie Precious will be old news just like Mariah.....I highly doubt she will ever enter into the realm of an enduring serious acting career......she cant even walk & talk at the same time......just put her in a room full of mirrors because after all.....it's all about MIMI!
Mariah just stay singing, because as a speaker: NO WAY.
She confirmed my thoughts...she has voices but no brain
I have to say I agree with the comments about "being an entertainer not a speech giver" being a bunch of BS. That has to be one of the lamest arguements in support of this behavior I have ever heard. That actually did make me LOL – first time I've probably used that term LOL and laughed out loud at the same time! She was wasted – it's obvious – she was dressed in clothes that didn't fit – no she's not fat – she's gorgeous – but like I tell my 16 yr old daughter who is OH SO PROUD of her newly developed chest – if you were clothes that don't fit you – you're going to look chunky and fat – not sleak and sexy!! Leave a little to the imagination! A less a lot of young girls could learn these days ... There isn't anything wrong wiht her body other than she didn't have clothes on that fit her. If she's smart – she'll apologize for her drunken/high behavior – blame it never expecting to win and over induldging too much and being suprised by having to give an acceptance speech. This will work for the first awards show – but how do you explain pulling the same air headed stunt two nights in a row on national TV? She's obviously got issues – so in the days to come – be prepared for the apologies and the excuses .... no real responsibility to show the younger generation – just more "spins" put on the obvious. To me – she's a talented celbrity that had the opportunity with Precious to make a come back and be back on top again for a while – she may have blown all of that with these stunts .... what a waste.
She is still pityful. For a while, she appeared more mature when she married Nick. But, that apparently was temporary. She is now more shallow and sad then ever before.
In 5-10 years, she is going to be obese and divorced.
Am I the only one who thought she looked like Jessica Rabbit at the Peoples Choice Awards?
Can you say Alcohol and Xanax...another one who will bite the dust without help if her family ignores it. Sad....very sad.
It was certainly a goofy speech!!!!
I love Mariah and I've been a huge fan since she came onto the scene in 1990. Everyone who knows anything about Mariah knows that she loves her champagne. She is not a drug addict but I would not be surprised if she was tipsy. And I'm sure none of you haters have EVER been drunk, right? Yeah right.
I was backstage at the Palm Springs Film Fest awards. First, she showed up 20 minutes late, after dinner had begun. She KNEW she was getting the award—it had been announced weeks ago, so she had plenty of time to prepare. There were plenty of high-powered Hollywood people in attendance, so if she's serious about an acting career she'd better get it together in front of her peers.
she is human and just beause shes a star doesn't mean she can't get wasted like the white boys.
Nick looks like her son........
I was sooo waiting for that strap to break and for her boob to just flop out! She definately had some chunky monkey's going on there!! She is beautiful, and has a nice curvy body, but she DEFINITELY needs to dress appropriately! Seriously, why didn't her entourage of stylists and fashionists shed some light on the not-so-attractive flubber that was pouring out of the top of her dress? They should be FIRRRRED!!!
Who cares if she is "on" something. Maybe she is on antianxiety meds...they make me goofy as H@ll and I LOVE it!
Umm..Is she for real? Why do we even give her a thought let alone an award? Some celebs just need to evaporate.
How does someone turn even this into a political debate? REALLY? the Dems will blame this on Bush? Grow up please.
For celebs in this position (being either really drunk or stoned while being interviewed), why doesn't the correspondent simply say, "Are you on something tonight?" And let the chips fall where they may! Now that's entertainment!
Stop throwing stones. She's not the first and as history has repeated itself, will not be the last. Most of the stars nowadays are killing themselves anyway with the proceeds from the sell of their cd's and concerts. She's just another one on her way DOWN from that "glittering" success ladder.
To all you losers hating please enclose pictures of yourselves sitting on the couch eating your Mcdonalds...
I may be a size 12 but I bet I am still hotter, richer, and more successful than you will ever be....
Jealous are ya?
She is a real cougar, first. If she had married one of my sons, I would be livid. Secondly, there is no excuse for her behavior. Sorry fans who say, "she is not a speaker, she's an entertainer and is not used to making speeches." That had nothing to do with her obvious intoxicated performance while accepting the awards. That was not normal, uncomfortable behavior-that was I'm high behavior.
PEOPLE NEED TO SHUT THE HELL UP!!! THE U.S. IS THE MOST ALCOHOL ABUSING COUNTRY AND OBESE COUNTRY IN THE WORLD SO JUST SHUT UP AND STOP HATIN' ON THE WOMAN YOU CRITICIZING IDIOTS OF THE WESTERN WORLD!!!!!
The Dems will still blame Bush for Miriah's debacle!
Im embarrassed for her! that youngster isn't gonna hang around if he keeps having to help her staggering,mumbling self up and down and all around! only a matter of time till she does something like snap her fingers for him to "come"! that dress was ridiculous! as she ages, she should act age appropriate! she is not Miley, or Taylor, or any kind of skinny young kid. She's a grown woman, and should act and appear as if she knows it! she is NOT a mermaid, either! no matter how hard she tries! she should spend her money educating herself in lieu of the days to come, should she lose her voice, her looks, or her man, to the natural process of aging! there are NO old Sex Symbols! anyone seen Bridget Bardot lately? of course not! she's an old lady! Mariah, stop..please, stop!
What is the matter with these celebs? First that Adam what'shisname with his inappropriate sexual outburst and now this bubble head. If this is what these people act like in front of a T.V. camera, what do they act like in private?
Added to which is the recent death of that Johnson gal from an overdose of something, and all of the DUIs of other celebs.
There is definately an ego issue with them combined with a lack of respect for anyone else.
This is why I don't listen to their music or watch their films.
Why do people think celebrities can't enjoy themselves? She won two great awards for being extremely talented, and you people then call her dumb?
She admitted she drank too much for Palm Springs. So be it? Let her enjoy herself.
To think of it, I bet few would know she won her "Best Breakthrough Supporting Actress Award" is she hadn't have given such an awkward speech.
My 12 year old thought she was stoned out of mind
If i were her and i was top of the world, I would go have fun and drink at a party as well. But, I would be aware of it and if I were to have to give a speech i would keep it simple. Just say...thank you everyone.
to KJ miss mariah has been in the biz for QUITE a long time. I'm sure she KNOWS how to give a proper speech.....and if not she could have simply said "Thank You and Good Night" that's not too hard if you're not boozed up or under the influence of drugs in the process.
To HOLLYWOOD please STOP coming out of your homes CLEARLY intoxicated embarrassing yourselves on national TV. If you know you'd rather be wasted than thank the people who make you who you are...STAY HOME! That's what satellite acceptance speeches are for!
To Mariah I've been a fan for years....but this is getting old. You're beuatiful talented and have so much to live for.... Stop dumding yourself down and killing yourself with the drugs and alcohol... faithful fans like me don't come often
Why do none of the females have nothing good to say...she looks good better than most;let her live her life
I see a lot of you complaining about blubber. I'm pretty sure you've stepped out of the house before with your blubber hanging out and not known it. She just happens to have 3,000 pictures taken of her in a single night.
She has not been sexy since 1995-1996--she is a lighter version of a trashed Whitney Houston!
Uh, clearly she was stoned. It's sad to see such a great talent lose credibility by acting that way. Is she a phenomenal singer? Yes. However, seeing her so out of it was painful to watch. I felt embarrassed for her.
I Love Mariah's singing – She is so gentle and nice in her songs and it all comes from the heart . I love her song Hero. Give Mariah a break she is just having fun and these awards are kind of shocking because i never see her get them – but all i can say is Congratulations to her. Happy New Year Mariah ! PS She does kind of wear her clothes alittle tight – considering all the $$$ she has now!
Two words: Definitive Blonde Bimbo – I lied, it was three...hehehe.
I must say myself she is looking a bit thick, She needs to cover up a bit or at least take a good look in the mirror and perhaps do a spin before she leaves the house.
There is such a thing as "prepare yourself" before coming to those events. What if you win? If you are in a movie and sing, you can remember lines. How about remembering a short "thank you" speech? If you make the money these people make, you can afford to hire someone to teach you how to speak and present yourself in these events, really no excuses.
No matter what she's on, drug, vodka... I still want to maried her one day. OOPs I am already 40 year old and she like younger man.
Maybe her too-tight clothing is cutting off the oxgen to her brain!
Mariah Carey...please come down from your high horse and stop acting like you're from outer space.....
She needs to stop pretending that she's still 20 and grow up she's as disgusting as madonna
She may look great while standing on the red carpet for photos, but when you need help moving from your seat to the stairs, then up the stairs, and then across the stage, how great you look kinda all goes out the window. She needs to work on her mobility... or get one of those scooters.
Come to think of it, Mr. Mariah looks a bit buzzed himself....
I saw it, and wow – the dress was too tight, too small, and did not flatter her figure at all. She would have done better with a princess cut in my opinion, and something to hide the extra skin around the cleavage and underarm area. Her arms are getting big too.
Mariah, Mimi, whatever you want to call yourself – it's time you got comfortable in your size. You could be a beautiful woman if you stopped trying to be a size 2. Be proud of your curves.
Also, stop popping those pills. It's obvious that you're on something (I don't have to be in the rehab business to notice it either!).
Stop saying she is fat, she is fine, she just needs to dress her body right. As for high or drunk, I would say both, but we all know how much "Mimi" loves herself.
Two words – Air Head.
Immature, yep, size 12, yep, foolish, oh yeah. Its hard to watch someone who is obviously so in love with themselves, appear in public pretending to be smart. She has to have every speech written for her, every dance move choreographed, so typically, she doesn't know how to speak on her own without someone there to give her script. I think maybe she needs to take some actual academic courses to bring her back to reality.
When is Mariah going to realize she is a size 12 not a size 2. She looks stupid when she wheres all these outfits that are too damn tight. She can't walk or breathe in any of her clothes. If she wore the right size for her body she would look a million times better and not need her husband to constantly be holding her up. I am totally over her and her immature self.
I just don't understand why people won't just lay off. Most performers are not speech givers, they are performers. Unless you've spent years in Toastmasters, some people have a hard time speaking in front of a crowd. Particularly if you're not aware that you're going to get an award, then you don't have time to plan. Most of the time when people are scheduled for interviews, they barely have time to comb their hair. No one said anything about Taylor Lautner, he stumbled with his speech. The media and the people who support them should really find something else to pick on. This is getting so played out.
When I watched her that night on the awards show – it appeared to me that she was intoxicated- pills, booze, whatever- clearly intoxicated was my impression. It's sad and disgusting to be honest with you that these celebs can't keep it together for a public outing that they are specifically being honored at. It makes me sad and utterly disgusted with the celebs that use any red carpet event that honors their job, profession, performance etc – let alone honor them specifically for an award – as a venue to show off just how drunk and disrespectful they can be.
A.U.I: Accepting Under the Influence...should have her microphone privileges suspended.
Here we go...another Whitney Houston.
Sounds like she could have been the new judge on American Idol.
Are we sure she hasn't been hanging out with Bobby Brown?
Another drugs & alcohol casualty in the making.
Divas love cocaine and hard liquor.
She is far from being "sexy" with all that blubber that she has hanging out!! What dope is she on, anyways??? She is far from being as hot as she thinks she is.
That woman was high as a kite.
Leave Mimi alone!
Exactly my first impression – what the heck is she drinkin' or smokin'??? Grow up Mariah!
She looked wasted.... That dress was something else
Goofy? More like drunk.
How 'bout that armpit fat pushing out of the side of her dress?
Is Mariah on something. she looks like it.
