Mariah Carey was able to walk by herself, unaided, in New York. Just kidding!


Here are some photos of Mariah Carey on Monday in New York. She was posing for paparazzi on the sidewalk, then she attended the NBC Universal Upfronts. On the carpet for the upfronts, Mariah tried to walk. By herself. Unaided. And of course she lost a shoe and stumbled. Because MARIAH CANNOT WALK BY HERSELF. When are her people going to learn that? She must have people propping her up at all times, if not carrying her. Thankfully, her people learned the lesson pretty quickly.

Mariah Carey was the centerpiece of ­NBCUniversal’s upfront presentation on Monday, and was carried onstage on a chaise by two men after she’d tripped on the red carpet earlier. At about 10:30 a.m. Carey showed up to Radio City Music Hall in a skintight sequin Balmain minidress, sunglasses, fishnets and sky-high platform heels that caused her to trip and lose a shoe on the red carpet. The diva — at the event to promote her E! show, “Mariah’s World” — was one of the last to arrive to the NBCU event, with a huge entourage that included her own hairstylist and makeup artist.

While she did manage to remain upright during the treacherous carpet walk, spies said Carey’s glam squad touched her up no less than “six times.” “She was in the middle of an interview speaking, and her makeup artist applied lip gloss as her lips were moving,” a spy said. “Her other stylist fixed her hair as she made her way down the carpet.”

Once inside, the “Vision of Love” singer changed into a blinged-out bathing suit and had two shirtless men carry her out on a chaise.

“It was like they were carrying Cleopatra,” said a source. In a past concert rider, the singer famously insisted that she “doesn’t do stairs.”

Meanwhile, fellow diva and reported longtime Carey nemesis Jennifer Lopez presented and was more low-key, arriving nearly an hour earlier than Carey, but without an entourage or the bling. We’re told the two never made contact at the ­presentation.

I laughed out loud at the part with her entourage touching her up as she was on the carpet. They were fixing her lipstick as she exerted the energy to speak! Thankfully, her reward for all of this WALKING was being carried on a chaise lounge. And I would love to know how those two shirtless men got that job. Those poor bastards.

E! also released the promo for Mariah’s World, her eight-part reality show in which Mariah can be seen bitching about the lighting on-camera, walking down stairs by herself, and then bitching some more.

    I see she lost weight again but that outfit is horrible.

    And that ain’t the Vision of Love singer, that’s the Touch My body singer. The Vision of Love singer left the island years ago.

    • Emma - The JP Lover says:

      Awww … I think Mimi looks Fabulous! :) I also think the “Vision of Love” singer is still alive and well as her incredible voice hasn’t changed a lick over the years. And just my opinion, but I believe Mimi has earned the right to change up her performance style. She is no more ‘ridiculous’ than Britney Spears … and at least Mimi can actually sing.

      • Bridget says:

        A voice like Mimi’s requires discipline and work to maintain (qualities that Mariah isn’t known for), and it really doesn’t sound like she has the same pipes anymore.

      • HH says:

        There’s been some vocal proof that her voice no longer has the range it used to. Now, if this can be regained with practice, I’m not sure. But she ain’t 90s Mariah, in terms of skill.

      • Emma - The JP Lover says:

        @Bridget and @HH: “There’s been some vocal proof that her voice no longer has the range it used to.”

        Her voice is still incredible and I seriously doubt she has loss more than a note or two in her 5-octave range. She sounds that same to me, and I’ve been a Mariah Carey fan since seeing her first TV performances singing “Vision of Love” on The Arsenio Hall Show and The Tonight Show in September 1990. Many musicians are a mess personally, but they don’t neglect their instruments. Mimi’s voice is her instrument and her ego wouldn’t allow her to miss a step with it.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        I’m still a fan of MC’s voice, but it has definitely changed over the yeras. She doesn’t even attempt most of the high notes in her concerts anymore. She changes the highnotes to lower scale notes. There have been complaints from her own fans who’ve attended her concerts and were disappointed with the “versions” she sings because she can’t sing her original versions. Her voice may be her instrument but she is known for NOT being disciplined, doing what she wants v. what she should, and thinking none of matters because…..she’s Mimi. She does not work hard at anythinig. Which brings me to the weight loss – she did not lose more weight. She had lipo….again. When she gains that weight back (b/c she will) it isn’t going to settle evenly like it does naturally. She’s going to look lumpy and out-of-proportion. Lipo might be the easy and fast route, but it isn’t the smartest route.

        Yes, she is definitely a better singer than Brittney Spears, but who isn’t and what does that have to do with anything? We’re talking about Maria, not Brittney.

    She’s so ridiculous. Oh god.

  4. Bridget says:

    That. Outfit.

  5. Maleficent says:

    Mariah needs to get to rehab. She is clearly under the influence of something. Every time I see her and witness her talk it is painfully obvious.

    • Santia says:

      I think it’s her narcissism speaking. You know the person who just doesn’t inhabit the real world with us anymore? That’s Mariah.

      • cr says:

        I’m not sure it’s really narcissism, so much as near total alternative universe level delusion. She’s harmless, but oh so very tiring and exhausting.

      • Kelly says:

        Agree with you both. This type of celebrity is boring and tiresome yet they get away with it.

        One cookie away from telling us to let us eat cake.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      I’m with Maleficent. I read years ago that she drinks wine….alot…way too much. I’m curious to see her demands – what she expects in her dressing room at shows. Pretty sure it includes several bottles of wine.

  6. Beez says:

    Why is everyone wearing fishnets again? So FUG

  7. Mgsota says:

    She’s absurd. Why doesn’t she just sail off into the sunset and enjoy an early retirement? That would be best for everyone.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      Because she wants you to see her. She wouldn’t be happy if she weren’t being hailed and lauded. Diva’s need fans and entourages.

  8. Lindy says:

    For some reason she’s my “b#&$h” in the corner eating crackers. Seriously everything about her makes me irrationally ragey. The idea that someone could be so unable to function as an adult… ugh. I don’t care how lucky she was to be born with a good set of pipes… in every other respect she seems to be a total disaster.

    • Santia says:

      The sad thing is that Mariah comes from humble beginnings and got successful/rich in her early 20′s. So this level of “check out” is ridiculous. I feel sorry for her kids.

  9. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    Possibly the worst get-up on any celebrity, ever. Dim Kartrashian excluded, of course.

    Somebody get this woman a wheelchair, because she will never practice walking in her new shoes before she goes out into public.

  10. Kitten says:

    LMAO. I don’t even feel bad for her because those shoes, that dress–all ridiculous.

  11. Suzanne says:

    Did Mariah have large volume lipo? Why did her face lose no weight?? She doesn’t look all filled with filler, either..booze???
    So confusing!!!!

  12. Lilacflowers says:

    Mariah, there are these things called “flats” You really should try them.

  13. Cran says:

    She is so underwhelming. Packer has purchased quite a prize.

  14. Kris says:

    I love her. She is the ultimate diva. She has no shame in her diva-ness. It’s completely awesome.
    Take that, Kim K! You will never be as capricious as Mariah!

  15. guest says:

    You know what? Mariah doesn’t bother me. That outfit is tacky, though a lot of things she does is tacky, but she always has a smile on her face.
    I feel she is honest about who she is and what she wants.
    If Kim Kardashian was wearing something like that, she would be wearing a trench coat ,big black shades and pretending to hide from the Paps she probably called. Kim would look uncomfortable.
    Mairah is like look, “I’m here and if you want to take pictures and later pick my outfit apart. Then here, let me give you a big smile and my best angles.”
    Its just funny.

    • Josefina says:

      I love Mariah too, as a character. A reality show on her is a brilliant idea. She’s a hilarious mess to watch.

      I’m sure working for her must be hell, though.

    • Kris says:

      Exactly! She’s like “I ‘m wearing these ridiculous and tasteless heels and can’t even walk in them but I don’t CARE, because I’m MARIAH and I’ll just pay men to help me walk, and I’m having a GREAT time doing that!”

      Love her!

  16. kodakay says:

    What happened to her fiancé. I haven’t seen him in a minute.

  17. Fran says:

    I CANNOT WAIT!!!! Mariah forever and ever!

  18. Nev says:

    Her coming off that plane is everything.

  19. Zeddy says:

    I love her. Everything about her. She’s so extra. Say what you want, but this girl has got game.

  20. Sigh... says:

    Mariah being Mariah being Mariah.
    That big dude’s loc are beautifully rendered and wound.

  21. Sansa says:

    Would love to see her styled ala Selma Hayek, appearance looks like a ‘before’ where’s the after.
    Poor Mimi nobody will tell her, nice friends! Even my daughter or husband speaks up when something’s looks , well, dumb.

  22. OTHER RENEE says:

    I remember her as a young, vibrant, talented singer on top of the world. Now she’s a cartoon.

  23. Erica_V says:

    I can’t wait to watch this. I AM living for this footage, Mariah. I truly am.

  24. Skyblue says:

    I don’t even know what she sings but I’m kind of in love with her supreme ridiculousness. It is righteous!

  25. Yup, Me says:

    Mariah and her basket of puppies are forever loves for me. I’ll be watching and enjoying every minute.

  26. I Choose Me says:

    I can’t help it. I will always have a soft spot for Mariah. Until and unless she does something heinous. Is she ridiculous? Hell yeah but she knows it and owns it.

  27. vespernite says:

    She is a ridiculous person! Who she has become over the years is just sad. So much talent and yet no class, no taste, no sanity!

  28. Bread and Circuses says:

    To be fair, NO ONE should be capable of walking in those shoes unless they’re a professional stilt walker in a circus.

    She only stumbled and lost a shoe; I would have broken my foot clean off at the ankle.

  29. Redd says:

    Not sure what it is about this chubita, but it doesn’t matter HOW much weight she loses. She STILL looks like you first look when you get pregnant and can’t hide it from those of us who’ve been there. Maybe neck lipo?
