Carey furious for missing chance to stand with ObamaJanuary 24th, 2009 - 12:09 am ICT by IANS
London, Jan 23 (IANS) Pop singer-turned-actress Mariah Carey was “furious” after discovering she would be seated for the inauguration of new US President Barack Obama at Tuesday’s ceremony because she was convinced organisers would allow her onstage.The diva attended the swearing-in and later wowed crowds at The Neighborhood Ball celebration that evening, which also saw performances by Mary J. Blige and Beyonce Knowles.
Carey was left disappointed after being told she would have to sit down for the event, as she thought she would be standing with Obama on the podium, reports contactmusic.com.
“Mariah was in the VIP area, where every celebrity, like Jon Bon Jovi, Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys and Bruce Springsteen, were seated. But somehow she thought she’d be up with the Obama family,” said a source, adding the actress was very upset when she realised she wasn’t.
