Mariah Carey’s HLN appearance turns into viral sensation

David Shankbone

Mariah Carey probably did not see this coming when she agreed to appear on HLN recently to promote her newest series of clothing and footwear products. Instead of people actually focusing on some of the things that she was selling during her time on the shopping channel, people are now talking about one thing and one thing only — her behavior.

During the broadcast (which you can see highlights of below), Carey tried to dictate camera angles, complained regularly about being pregnant earlier this year, had bizarre interactions with callers, referred to every as “dawling” like she was trapped in a 1940s noir film, and then tried to explain every aspect of her physical appearance.

So far, there has been no real comment from the Carey camp about what was going on here, but you also have to remember one thing — thanks tot he control room being in your ear, being on this sort of program is a far more difficult experience than it would ever appear to any of us watching on the show. Nick Cannon knows a little something about this — though the experience for Mariah’s hubby is at least a little bit different on “America’s Got Talent.”

You can check out some of the highlights (if you want to call them that) from the program below.
