Just as I assumed. Mariah Carey took to her Twitter page a few minutes after performing at the Michael Jackson Memorial yesterday morning at the Staples Center, in Los Angeles. This is what she had to say about her “lackluster”
performance. This was way before the blogs said anything negative in regards to the performance.
“Just recovering from the day. Still filled w/sadness as we listen to KJLH in LA(Stevie Wonder’s radio station)paying tribute to MJ.
Trying to sing today was basically impossible for me. I could barely keep myself from crying. I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to pull it together and really do it right,but I was literally choked up when I saw him there in front of me.
One thing I know is, we will never really have to say goodbye to MJ. His legacy lives on through his music and the millions of people. He inspired with his timeless music. He will be forever in our hearts.”
That is very understandable and makes perfect sense as she was indeed a good friend of Michael and has collaborated with him numerous of times. I can’t even imagine how it would be to have to perform in front of your friends casket and whole family. She held it down as much as possible though, kudos.
