The singer recently commented on the attention her acceptance speech at the Palm Springs International Film Festival awards has gotten.
Los Angeles (WiredPRNews.com) – Since video of her acceptance speech at the Palm Springs International Film Festival awards has become an Internet sensation, Mariah Carey recently commented on her ramblings at the ceremony. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Carey jokingly attributed her antics to her director in the hit movie “Precious” Lee Daniels.
Carey is quoted by the AP as stating while backstage at another awards ceremony Wednesday, “The thing is me and Lee hadn’t see each other in a long time, and then he was presenting my award, so he starts off immediately with inside jokes… We had splashes of champagne, and I love Lee but he’s a bad influence.”
Carey is further quoted as stating, “If people don’t understand me and think I’m just like this girl that stands by a microphone and sings ‘Hero,’ then they’re definitely not going to get me… But if people knew me better, they would understand I have a sense of humor, and basically that’s what gets me through life.”
