Mariah Carey on NYE performance: 'I was upset people didn't understand'

Songstress Mariah Carey opened up about her unfortunate New Year's Eve set, which saw her performance marred by technical problems as her in-ear piece and microphone malfunctioned. 

During a recent interview with the Associated Press, the 'Obsessed' icon explained that she tried not to dwell on it but she definitely felt "vilified" by what happened on December 31:

"I didn't obsess over the New Year's Eve thing. I mean, I was upset about the fact that people didn't understand, but it's like, I can only explain it like this to you. It's like I'm the only one that has to make five million comebacks... For me there are different rules, I don't know why. I don't know why it's not OK that I was just victimised and vilified by the situation."
