Although Mariah Carey's New Years Eve performance was a mess, we've gotta admit, it all made sense. 2016 was absolutely horrendous, and in a sense, Carey's performance was a metaphor for "the-year-that-must-not-be-named." 

Since the performance, there's been so much speculation regarding what actually happened, and in true Mariah fashion, MiMi clapped back with the sassiest tweet, saying, "Shit happens."

But now...she's finally opened up about how she really feels: embarrassed AF.

"All I can say is Dick Clark was an incredible person, and I was lucky enough to work with him when I first started in the music business," she told Entertainment Weekly. "I’m of the opinion that Dick Clark would not have let an artist go through that and he would have been as mortified as I was in real time."

Thanks to her fans (AKA lambs 🐑), the pop legend has been able to get through the rough time.

"My true fans have been so supportive, and I am so appreciative of them and everybody in the media that came out to support me after the fact because it really was an incredible holiday season that turned into a horrible New Year’s Eve," she continued. 

A lot of us joked that this would be the end of Carey's career, but let's just be real here. This is Mariah Carey were talking about! This is "Miss. Most #1 Singles Of All Time!"

"It’s not going to stop me from doing a live event in the future," she said. "But it will make me less trusting of using anyone outside of my own team."

Carey has learned a lot since her New Year's Eve flub, and she even decided to fire her creative director, Anthony Burrell. Gotta do what you gotta do!

We're hoping 2017 is nicer to you, Miss Mariah, and we can't wait for your new reality show.
