So she was paid $3.5 million to act like an entitled c*nt for 10 minutes. Sounds like a fair price for her.

I want to meet the person who said, "I don't really feel like going out ton... wait, Mariah Carey's there? OKAY LET'S GO!"

No one ever said that, that money was wasted. You could have put wee Janette Krankie up there for $10,000 and the night would have been the same.

Lisa Loeb would have been cheaper.
 
2018-01-01 08:54:19 AM  
At that price, everyone should have gotten head.
 
2018-01-01 09:04:19 AM  
I would have performed it for half that.
 
2018-01-01 09:07:58 AM  
I would have performed it for the amount of money I owe my student loans.

Singer acts like her not getting hot drink in winter means that she's in the exact same situation as the people in the audience who aren't getting paid $3.5 million dollars to be on a stage in ten minutes and then is escorted either to whatever they have for a green room in a warm area with hot tea available or escorted out of the area free to go home with a $3.5 million dollar check in hand.

Who is Mariah Carey?

I guarantee she's higher maintenance than a 30 year-old Fiat.

Did she bother to do any prep work this year like memorize her own songs?  Seriously, they could get one of those real finds that is slightly tinted, prop it on stage wearing something skimpy and shoot her music over the PA system and who there but a few people would notice or care.

That wasn't worth sitting down.  10 million was my need to sit down price.
 
2018-01-01 10:01:39 AM  
This was purely a "Tune in to see if she wigs out again this year!" event.

Her complete meltdown last year could have been a genius setup for this year.

Jim Carey's daughter.

The urine soaked times square article had a dude quoted saying free concert and mentioned her by name. I don't think you want to meet these people but they exist.

Mrs Edmo and I had a running discussion about why she performed and how badly she was freezing. Mrs. Edmo wants to know why her girls are out without a coat and I opined it's part of the brand. It's probably in the contract.

We also wondered how much money she got. Earlier we watched the New York Philharmonic concert at Kennedy Center. In 2016, the base salary of an orchestra member was $146,000+. I'm inclined to think they did more to earn their money than Maria. And much more talented. Although one older gal must have taken one for the ream RE the boobs clause because she showed plenty of cleavage.

This is the first thing she's ever done that I liked.

Got paid $3.5 million to work for ten minutes while pissing everyone off in the process? That's awesome!

I've just resigned myself to the fact that I'll never understand some things.

She used to be a porn star who ran for Governor of California.

Some people are working really hard to get the hate up today. Regardless of what she was paid her presence, and her performance were unremarkable and forgettable.

/not a fan
//not a hater
///want to play with her dirty pillows
 
2018-01-01 11:07:48 AM  
Meh, it was freezing and apparently someone told her there would be hot tea.  Her line was not professional but it didn't me as much as her word salad about justice.
 
2018-01-01 11:08:06 AM  
Did Mariah Carey herself get 3.5 million or was that paid to Mariah Carey, Inc, which pays salaries for everyone making the show happen?

"After the first song, the native New Yorker uttered a bizarre statement that left some baffled.
Carey lamented the lack of hot tea onstage to combat the cold temperatures, saying, "They told me there would be hot tea."


I'm no fan of hers, and she likely is a diva, but it's 10 degrees out and she made a comment about having a hot beverage. I'm all for knocking celebrities for some of the stupid things they say and do, but I hardly think this rises to that level.

Singer complains to her fans about not getting her hot drink. She could just walk over to almost any stage hand and they'd have gotten her whatever she wanted. We're making fun of her lack of professionalism.

Forget it, Lew, some folks have no idea that the cold affects vocal chords too, and the tea would have been a good thing.

Professionalism?
Haven't been to many concerts, eh?
 
2018-01-01 12:14:39 PM  
I can't decide if she is a has been, or a never was.

In any event, I'm baffled by why anyone pays any attention to her, much less pays her $3.5 million for a monumentally ordinary and forgettable performance.

Am I the only person who thought it was just a really bad attempt at a joke? I'm well aware of her ultra-diva reputation, but the way she said it and looked into the crowd, there was no doubt in my mind that she just made a cringe-worthy joke.

You have no sense of just how much money she's made. I don't especially care for her music either, but she's worth over $500M.

You pay me a few million for a few minutes of my time and I'll bring the hot tea.

Normally you would be correct, but since she behaved the way she did last year, there was little room for error. She didn't have to complain to the crowd, who likely would have killed for a sip of tea to stay warm.
 
2018-01-01 01:39:08 PM  
When it comes to dim-witted people whining about nothing, I still think the Entertainment tab beats Politics by a long shot.

We're 13 hours into the year and people are already getting their panties in a twist because a singer pointed out it was really cold.

Who cares?
