Home Music Mariah Falls on Stage, Keeps Smiling–And Singing

Mariah Carey fell on stage last night in Singapore during a one-off show to celebrate the Formula 1 Grand Prix. (She’s not on tour.)

But she popped right back up and kept singing. And smiling. In fact, she stumbled, regained her stance, signaled for an assistant. The woman came on stage with a bottle of water, but Mariah really wanted help fixing her boot strap. She certainly was not going to bend over and fix it herself! Mariah kicked off her shoes and kept going.

Considering that everyone thinks she’s pregnant, Mariah took the whole thing literally in stride.

She’s a trouper, that’s for sure.

If Mariah is pregnant, she’s definitely covering it up artfully. She’s heavier than in the past, but frankly, looks damn good. Check out the second video, for “Touch My Body.” The strawberry pink maternity outfit is very clever.

Her Christmas album is coming on November 9th, by the way.

  1. Alright, I’m watching the 2nd cut….and why does she dress so junky with all her money? She can dress better than that, regardless of being pregnant?

  2. Why does she have all those male dancers behind her? She doesn’t need it. Very distracting and it adds to her payroll! And they look like hood rats — come on Mariah, you got better class.

  3. Roger,
    You forgot to mention she sounded a mess the entire show. If this was Whitney you would have wrote” HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM” Mariah needs to sit down somewhere honestly.
