As New York City prepares for its annual New Year’s Time Square celebration, a team of producers have been assigned to ensure Mariah Carey makes her appearance on time.
No kidding! Carey, who is infamously late, has been given an entire team to do whatever it takes to get her headline act to go off at the right time tonight during the “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest.”
An insider told Page Six, “Mariah has to be on time. She is the top performer in Times Square right before the ball drop. They’ve booked her an apartment at a top Times Square hotel for hair and makeup because they fear she’d never make it from her Manhattan apartment on time. There’s a team of top producers tasked to get her there on time and shepherd her to the stage.”
The source went on to say that “when Dick Clark producers called to lock in her arrival time, Mariah’s team actually asked for clarification, ‘What time exactly does the ball drop?’”
Another insider said that “They should have told Mariah 11 p.m., just to be safe.”
In 2014 Carey halted the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree-lighting ceremony forcing people to wait several hours because she didn’t want to perform in the rain. Carey did eventually perform at the ceremony.
She later wrote on Twitter, “Last night’s situation was beyond my control. I apologize to all that showed up, you know that I would never want to disappoint you.”
