On Wednesday, Mariah Carey tweeted an apology for missing the pre-taping of the annual Rockefeller Center christmas tree lighting ceremony, a snafu which left TONS of fans disappointed and the crew at NBC seriously pissed off.

While earlier reports suggested Mimi was late thanks to a prolonged conversation with her lawyer, a source close to the incident claims the singer refused to perform in the rain.

The source revealed:

"She was concerned about it affecting her voice. The buzz on set was that Mariah eventually showed up in her car, but refused to get out of the car because of the weather."

Wow, sounds like some diva behavior to us!

Despite the rampant rumors of Carey's poor manners, the momma of two painted a very different picture of the situation.

She tweeted:

"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 You've kept me here, in your hearts, and I keep you in mine always. We are #lambily! #ThereForMe. I will be opening tonight's live show in Rockefeller center with "All I Want For Christmas Is You"!!!! Tune in at 8pm on NBC!"

We're not so sure we buy the 44-year-old's excuse apology — by all accounts on set, it seems that she was completely IN control of the situation!

We just hope all goes smoothly with her live performance tonight!

    "It was beyond my control" is not an apology, it is a vague attempt at an explanation. Please learn to apologize like a grownup person. And refusing to get out of her car? Did you also hold her breath until you turned blue? Fame is always borrowed from the public. And public opinion can turn, no matter who you are.
