Stay woke, Lambs.
While Mimi herself thinks Dick Clark Productions is to blame — having accused the veteran production team of “sabotaging” her performance — her ex Nick Cannon also believes some entity had purposely “foiled” the music icon.
But unlike the diva, the America’s Got Talent host thinks the Times Square technical issue goes all the way to the top — as in, the federal government!
On Monday’s Ellen, Cannon, a self-proclaimed conspiracy theorist, said he thought the government “set [Mariah] up” for a disastrous performance, quipping:
“I’m a conspiracy theorist. I think the government did that, they set her up. That was a distraction.”
So Mariah’s real saboteur is├óΓé¼┬ª Donald Trump?! Ha! Can’t blame him for that one, he hasn’t even taken office yet!
Conspiracies aside, the 36-year-old defended Carey’s diva-esque reaction, saying it could have happened to anyone. He added:
“I screw up on America’s Got Talent all the time. When there’s people in your ears, saying things and stuff, I think she got kinda busted. But being the diva that she is, she was like, ├óΓé¼╦£I’m just going to walk around and pose.’ Like Ryan Seacrest said, ├óΓé¼╦£She can do no wrong.'”
Foiled or not, it sounds like Nick has got Mariah’s back! (Unlike
Dick Clark Productions the Government, apparently?)
Watch Nick’s full interview (below) to hear him talk about having another kid and why that whole celibacy thing didn’t really work out!
