These Celebrities Blasting Mariah Carey For NYE Performance

January 3, 2017

Mariah Carey has been ripped apart on social media for her New Year's Eve performance, mostly by non-famous people like you and I. But now a couple of notable celebrities are speaking out, one of them in a subtle way, and the other in a very blatant manner.

Let's start with Jenny McCarthy who was there that night helping host the event. She said, "I think Mariah was nervous as hell. I think she chose really tough songs to try to sing along with… I mean her voice is not there anymore. I don't think there is a problem with her inner ears. I just don't. I think she used it as an excuse."

Ouch. Meanwhile what people are claiming is Jennifer Lopez throwing shade at Mariah is much more subtle. J-Lo simply "liked" a critical comment on Instagram, but everybody noticed!

Seems like a big leap to say that liking a comment is throwing shade, but whatever internet. It is possible, especially since Mariah once famously said she'd never heard of Jennifer Lopez (who is a huge star in her industry).
