One week after her headline-making New Year's Eve performance, Mariah Carey is finally speaking out in her own words about the events that unfolded. The pop diva released an audio recording on Twitter, explaining her side of the story for the first time after suffering technical difficulties on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.
"I haven't really addressed the situation that happened on New Year's Eve, and in time I will. But for now, I want everyone to know that I came to New Year's Eve in New York in great spirits and was looking forward to a celebratory moment with the world," the GRAMMY winner said in the recording. "It's a shame that we were put into the hands of a production team with technical issues who chose to capitalize on circumstances beyond our control."
