Mariah Carey's 4-Step Guide to How to Not GAF

She does it so well!

Published January 5, 2017

You’d think that after the major mess that was Mariah Carey’s New Year’s Eve performance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve that the singer would be holed up in her mansion, mascara running as she relived the embarrassment over and over via DVR. Not so. 

Instead of draining her sorrows in tubs of Ben & Jerry’s after her earpiece failed her during one of her biggest live performances yet, the legendary songbird is living la vida fabulous as per usual and documenting every second of it on social media. Because what’s the point of having haters if you can’t rub their faces in how fantastically unbothered you are, right, dahlings?

  1. Don’t Get Mean…Post a Meme

    Shit happens 😩 Have a happy and healthy new year everybody!🎉 Here's to making more headlines in 2017 😂

    Immediately following the botched performance, Mimi posted this gif that summed up her sentiments. The shoulder shrug and caption was simple and to the point. That’s Mariah for you, the queen of classy shade since 1990.

  2. Never Let ‘Em See You Sweat

    Fun in the snow. Aspen is a winter wonderland. ❄️⛄️❤️

    …But definitely let them see you smiling as you vacation from your Airbnb mansion in prime winter destination Aspen, Colorado. Mariah shared this sweet pic from her annual winter getaway. 

  3. Flex on ‘Em

    Aspen moments. ❄️❤️

    Then she hit us with another one, way more lust worthy than the last, from her hot tub in Aspen — in a sequined copper swimsuit, no less. Just think of silencing the haters like getting back at an ex-boyfriend and flex on.

  4. Do You, Boo Boo!

    Will I be seeing you in Dubai, #Lambs? 🎤😘

    Don’t be stopped. Just because you have one (or two...or three) disastrous performance(s), doesn’t mean you stop doing what you love. Mariah’s already announced she’ll be performing live on February 23 in Dubai. Onwards and upwards. You go, Mimi!
