Mariah Carey was performing at the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday when she accidentally tripped over her own high heels and tumbled to the floor like a rhino who’d been hit with a tranquilizer gun. Yahoo News says:
She slipped while striding across the stage and clapping along to her 1992 hit “Make It Happen.”A nearby backup dancer quickly rushed to her aid and a smiling Carey [told] the crowd, “I did that on purpose.”
“Someone come out here and take these shoes off,” Carey said into her microphone.
When an assistant arrived with a bottle of water, Mariah pointed to her feet and gesticulated repeatedly until her message was clear.
Three dancers helped Carey balance while an additional assistant ran out from backstage to help her out of her heels.
There is not a word for how much I hate this self-entitled cunt. “Visceral loathing and abject disdain” comes close, but doesn’t quite capture the sphincter-clenching rage that washes over me when she orders the help to remove her shoes. It’s the same feeling I get when someone in the express line decides to pay with a check.
