Mariah Carey's manager thinks NYE show 'wanted a viral moment at any expense'
Mariah Carey's manager believes producers behind Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve did not cut to a break when the singer experienced technical problems because they wanted a "viral moment".
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the singer's manager Stella Bulochnikov said producers of the TV show did not do the right thing by continuing the broadcast. She said:
"On the third song when she could hear her track playing it was so bad she said, ‘F**k it, I’ve had enough'. When she pulled her ears out, they should have cut to commercial. That says to me they wanted a viral moment at any expense. And that’s not a company with integrity for 50-something years. That’s not who Dick Clark was. He loved artists."
The manager confirmed that producers have not yet apologised for the mishap, adding: "That’s disgusting. We live in this viral world where anybody will do anything for a viral moment.”
