She’s guest starring in the back half of Season 3. Empire returns to Fox on March 22.
Mariah Carey did an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, saying “The New Year’s Eve situation – couldn’t be helped… If I can’t explain it to the entire world, then they’re not going to understand it, because it’s not what they do. Just like I wouldn’t understand somebody who had a desk job and how to do that. I couldn’t. I literally am incapable of being in the real world and surviving.” And she continued: “This was out of my control, and had everything not been such a chaotic mess, then I would have been able to make something happen… I’m sorry… I blame everybody, and I blame myself for not leaving after rehearsal.” haha!
The paparazzo who was attacked by Britney Spears with an umbrella during her well-documented 2007 breakdown is now attempting to auction off the umbrella! Why now?? Maybe because of that terrible unauthorized Lifetime movie about Britney… it was so cheesy but I couldn’t stop watching it LOL. The scene with the umbrella was part of the movie.
