Her Supreme Deity Mariah Carey of Billboard fame has been generating lots of buzz for her portrayal of a welfare worker in the film “Precious.” But it seems the buzz has been going to her head, quite literally.
Above, watch as an inebriated Carey accepts the award for Breakthrough Actress at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Jan. 5. Admire her as she teeters across a stage in a dress that, uh, shows off her curves. Marvel at the surprising admission that she read “Push,” the novel that inspired the film, twice. Then laugh as Mariah demands the audience to applaud her encounter with Helen Mirren. Finally, appreciate Mariah as she ennobles a few with her thank-yous.
No Mimi, we should all be thanking you! It’s so nice to see a celebrity as a happy, healthy drunk and not some anxiety-inducing Amy Winehouse punching her front row. Good luck with the remainder of the awards season, because we sincerely want to see you give out more acceptance speeches.
