It all stems back to THAT New Year's Eve performance....
And you all know damn well what I'm talking about.
Anthony Burrell was fired by Mariah Carey following her much talked about (and PANNED) New Year's Eve performance, and now, he's speaking out.
Speaking with Complex, Burrell held nothing back about the performance as well as more recent ones that Mariah has been called "lazy" in:
“It’s just typical Mariah,”
“Mariah is clear: When she doesn’t wanna do something, she doesn’t do it. She’s performing with lackluster and no f—s given, and it’s taking away her star.”
“Working with an artist like Mariah, who’s not a mover first, it’s always a challenge to get them to think physically and not just vocally,”
“You always have to keep in mind that they’re a singer first. The priority is not teaching them 100 counts of eight, or endless routines. I wanted to give Mariah a modern push to revamp her, give her a fresher, more modern feel, make her more aware of her body and her lines, and not look like her feet hurt when she’s walking.”
He also took aim at Carey's management:
“You’re a legend, but you don’t care, your team doesn’t care,”
“They’re not guiding and directing her. She’s back to where she was before. It’s not like she’s never looked this bad before; I just stepped her game up.”
