For those who missed the New Year’s fiasco, consider yourselves lucky. Mariah Carey basically gave one of the most awkward performances in history. She lip-synched (poorly) and then posed around the stage making weird faces. It was not her finest hour.
Rather than owning up to her poor performance, she tried to blame Dick Clark Productions, who put on the New Year’s Rockin’ Eve show. Nick Cannon at least somewhat agrees with her in that regard. Carey’s ex-husband thinks the songstress was the victim of sabotage.
Cannon appeared on Ellen this week, where he dished on his thoughts. “I’m a conspiracy theorist,” he said. “I think the government did that, they set her up. That was a distraction.”
It’s pretty clear he’s joking, but it’s good to see a sense of humor about the whole debacle. He went on to get more serious about what he thought went down.
