As part of the promo push for her still-untitled upcoming album, Butterfly Princess Mariah Carey kicked off the Good Morning America Summer Concert Series with an event that was more fall than summer and more improv stand-up/performance art than concert.
Anyone who lets MC speak about herself for long enough will eventually learn she is not about that morning life. And it was clear the 6 am start to the festivities apparently did a number on the diva who let some colorful language slip, experienced a dress fastener pop and provided much unintentional comedy.
Carey remained her usual charmingly self-deprecating self, trading one-liners with host Lara Spencer and singing her sleep-deprived thoughts to featured vocalist/current meme king Miguel on "#Beautiful." While isolated vocal issues clearly forced a less-than-fluid approach to her patented runs, she acquitted herself nicely on her hits "Always Be My Baby" and "We Belong Together." Besides, no matter how she sounded on "#Beautiful," she will never be as bad as her dancers; I want her choreographer's job.
Watch below and send Mimi warm thoughts of ginger tea, honey and lots of rest.
