Mariah Carey

E! NEWS --  Mariah Carey Jokes That Aretha Franklin Would "Not Approve" of Her New Year's Eve Performance

Sometimes you have to power through!

Speaking with E! News' Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globes, Mariah Carey opened up about her New Year's Rockin' Eve performance. While it was a far cry from the technical difficulties she experienced at the beginning of 2017, she admits that the queen of soul may not have approved.

"Let me not get into past moments, but it was a great feeling to be in New York," Mariah explained to Ryan. "I was so happy that we shared that moment together." While she may have made it look like a piece of cake, it's no easy feat to perform in those freezing conditions.

"People loved it and it was not easy," Ryan complimented the singer. "I think you said, ‘Aretha would not approve of singing in those temperatures.'" Mariah is not one to shy away from the truth. "She would not." she shared.

Of course, Ryan could not let her go without also getting her to dish on her favorite recent TV obsession. "I love The Crown!" Mariah gushed. The queen has spoken!

New York City At Dusk

We just loved this panoramic photo from our friend Emmy Award winning Andrew Dallos from MSNBC's  Rachel Maddow Show. It is cold here in New York City and I think this photo captures the feeling.

Nazanin Mandi With Miquel

Grammy Award-winning singer Miguel hosted New Year’s Eve at TAO where he was joined by girlfriend Nazanin Mandi as well as family members and friends. Miguel’s group fueled up for the night with dinner in the restaurant’s private dining room with a special menu prepared by the chef. The R&B sensation then made his way to the DJ booth on the lower level of TAO where he hopped on the mic and wished the crowd, “ amazing night you won’t remember and a 2014 you won’t forget,” before taking center stage for the countdown in the main room of the nightclub. As the clock winded down to the final moments of the year, Miguel hopped on stage with a bottle of Champagne in hand and sang along to the sounds of DJ Politik. He led partygoers in a countdown to midnight before sharing his New Year’s kiss with girlfriend Nazanin amongst confetti showers and cheers. He then kicked the year off with a medley of his hit songs including “Sure Thing,” “How Many Drinks?” “Adorn,” and “Power Trip.” After his performance, he settled into a VIP skybox that overlooked the entire club and enjoyed the rest of the night surrounded by family and friends.

Undefeated boxing champ Floyd Mayweather was also spotted celebrating at TAO. Joined by a group of friends, he took in the lively club from a VIP table and requested songs from DJ Politik.

At LAVO, DJ Vice brought in the New Year right with a high energy party and incredible Strip views of the fireworks from LAVO’s terrace as Dutch DJ Chuckie rang in 2014 at Marquee where the party scene went strong into the early morning.

On the carpet she showed off her ring and shared that the engagement was spontaneous but that her fiancé put a lot of thought into the design of the ring and it represents how he feels about her and how blessed she to have someone like him in her life. When asked about New Year’s resolutions she stated she, “wasn’t going to make any specific resolutions other than to just continue to be a good person”. Brandy said to expect great things in 2013 and is looking forward to the upcoming sixth season of her TV show The Game.
