Mariah Becomes 1st Celebrity Meme Of 2018 After Her 2nd New Year’s Eve Diva Moment On Live TV
Mariah Carey put on her professional face late last night and returned to the Dick Clark Productions stage for the 2018 New Year’s Eve ‘Rock N’ Eve’ extravaganza in New York city. Last year, Ms. Carey performed on that same stage and it was an outright disaster. She lip synched trough the songs, but then stopped all together after becoming off sync with her own pre-recorded vocals. Mariah also looked awkward trying to do dance moves with her background dancers -who by the way, remained on point, even when their boss was standing on stage like a deer caught in headlights after her mess up.

Well ILOSM fam,’ as long as we have breathe in our bodies, there’s always another day, another chance to get it right. Mariah stepped back onto that Dick Clark stage in all of her signature shimmery clothed glory and bared the brunt of the winter cold, as she sang hits like, “Hero.” Carey didn’t mess up and that was a plus for the “Butterfly” diva. However, that didn’t stop her from having yet another diva type moment on live TV. The upside to her diva moment was that it was brief, but still an almost expected moment for Ms. Carey.
In between her an her background singers SANGIN’ their hearts out on stage last night, Mariah realized that a cup of hot tea she’d apparently requested, had not made it’s way to the stage. Therefore, she didn’t hesitate to throw some serious verbal jabs at whomever the staff member was backstage who was supposed to take heed to her tea cue. Here’s what happened:

“They told me there would be tea,” Mariah stated as she gazed backstage to whomever she was directing her message to. “Oh, it’s a disaster. Okay, well, we’ll just have to rough it. I’m going to be like everybody else, with no hot tea.”

Mariah Just Became One Of The First Viral Meme Moments Of 2018
To her credit, she’s a singer, whose voice needs to stay especially warm when singing in the cold air. Not sure what the official temp was, but on New Year’s Eve that N.Y. weather felt like 20 degrees below cold as hell. So it’s understandable why Mariah needed her hot tea…she just made her request equally entertaining with her diva moment and her fans were lovin’ every second of it. In fact, according to them, Mariah has officially set the tone to becoming the first celebrity meme of 2018, after her brief diva-fit:
The first time life throws you a curve in 2018 just remember: Mariah Carey made it through without her hot tea. You can make it through too.
