Mariah Carey Fires Longtime Creative Director


Pop diva Mariah Carey cleans house after the great New Year's Eve debacle...

According to reports Mariah Carey has fired her long time creative director, Anthony Burrell, after her disastrous performance for Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve [click here if you missed that].

Sources tell ETonline
"He's not being brought back [in 2017] for a number of reasons."
But mainly, it appears, for moving a bunch of dancers around.
The source explained to ET that Burrell's decision to move the backup dancers offstage "left Mariah without any support," as backup singers can be a source of support and help an artist pick up cues if their inner earpieces don't work and they can't hear the music

Bitch please. The dancers were irrelevant the fact is that you're a SINGER who can't sing anymore. No amount of dancers or smoke and mirrors will cover that fact up. Retire now.

Wait a minute, why would she fire her creative director... I thought she said the whole debacle was because she was "sabotaged" by the Dick Clark crew for ratings, which if true would have nothing to do with her creative director, so which is it Mariah? Seems like it's everybody's fault but hers. She's been singing those songs her whole career there's no reason she couldn't of taken her ear piece out and just sang live but she would never do that because for some reason she insists on still performing "live" even though she doesn't want to admit her vocals are GONE!

Because, 12:29, that fugazi manager is moving what's left of Mariah's old school people out and using this as an excuse. Soon she'll be surrounded with no one who cares about her as the manager makes sure she's kept drunk and high. I wonder when Mariah will sign over her royalties and power of attorney over to that manager. Btw, did you know Kylie now has power of attorney over Tyga?

Mariah is veering into "Elvis' last years" territory. She needs to see a vocal doctor, stop the "champagne and french fries" diet she allegedly has, and stop taking benzos with running around with obviously gay back-up dancers who are using her. She's totally on one and someone needs to step in or else it's a wrap.

12:44 You are so right. I was just saying the other day we are entering Whitney territory here. They are going to squeeze Mariah dry then throw her to the wolves.
BTW- Tyga is a damn fool. Poor Cairo will have nothing.

@Chrissy Girl Cairo has nothing now. Even if he does it's all because of Kylie.

First of all her backup dancers are exactly that back up dancers. They are suppose to be secondary to the said artist because the artist is the HEADLINER okay. How were they supposed to know Mariah herself would flub HER performance. Based on the video I saw its clear she was giving them cues when they were next to her by saying just walk me done and they did just that only to go back behind Mariah because everyone wanted to see Her perform.

Maria needs to put the wine and pills down, get rid of that Russian tea room czar chick and swallow a dose of humbleness for once in her life.

As for Anthony, I won't be too concerned about him because he has been riding with Mariah and her diva antics for YEARS which says a lot. He will get snapped up by another artist quick so he should be counting his blessings that he dodged a bullet because that Manager is clearly there to yes Mariah to death so she can keep her job

first off he is NOT her long time creative director. He just got that job about a year ago! He fucked up because he didn't give the right music to the sound engineer. He changed shit all around without mariah's approval and threw her out there without adequate rehearsal. he's basically an all round FUCK BOY that never should have gotten the job in the first fucking place! Send his ass back to DANCE MOMS where he belongs since he lives for the DRAMA!

get to change everything around at the last minute and Mariah doesn't know it. Hell where was the so called reliable smanager in all this? First it was the earpiece that caused her to flub her performance now it's the backup dancer calling the shots over a selfproclaimed diva whose supposed to be the headliner whose going to sing live in the cold?? Whether Anthony's been with her 1 year or several years the bottom line us that Mariah is sp posed to have the final say in every performace. Do you think Madge, Jlo, etc. would do this? Hell no.

Mariah needs to stop pointing fingers, stop being lazy and take a long hard look on the mirror because she will see that she is the source of her problems.

How much you want to bet if Dick Clark was alive she would have NEVER pulled that stunt because she knows his reach was far.

Meant to say how does a backup dancer

My comment was for 3:54pm

4:23, this is 12:44 - You hit the nail on the head! Dick Clark would have ruined her career. Google all the people who tried him. She and that manager will make it so she never works again. And this delusional BS in IG? This woman was an icon with a talent that was gifted to her...Now look at her:

Makes me want to cry because she headed down the SAME road as Michael, Whitney, hell, even crusty old Elvis. Someone needs to step in. I'd say Nick, but he's unwell.

@ 4:34 Nick can't do anything that's why he jumped ship. I'm sure he tried but her ego is just too big to listen to anyone. She's gonna crash hard and even then still be in denial. I wish that wasn't the case because that woman's voice used to be amazing.

@4:34pm. RE: Dick Clark exactly if he were alive he would have gotten Mariah all the way together and then reminded her that he has 50+ years in the game for a reason.

debbie said...

Mariah's just angry because her dancers were more professional than her. Sadly, firing her creative director still has her looking bad.

Felicia said...

LOL

GOOD LICK WITH THAT MARIAH!!


What about your vocals though???

prissa o said...

Y'all said it all. Everyone is 100% correct. So sad. She used to be my fave 😢

Stella is clearing house so she can control EVERYTHING. Trust, MC is in a downward spiral and don't be surprised when you hear of her in the hospital or in an accidental death scandal.
