Mariah Carey Gives Drunken Acceptance Speech. Allegedly.

You’d think after so many years in the music business and all the energy she spends telling us how pure and conservative she is, Mariah Carey would be able to better handle herself last Tuesday at the Palm Springs Film Festival’s Gala Dinner where Mariah was being honored for her “breakthrough” acting performance in the Lee Daniels drama “Precious.”

But alas, the booze got the better of her. Allegedly.

Early in the evening, Pop Tarts spotted the songstress walking around a back hall with Daniels holding her up – however Carey wasn’t ashamed to later admit she was, well, a little worse for wear and had too much of … something.

“Please forgive me because I’m a little bit… yeah (laughs) oh my goodness,” she rambled while accepting the honor and going on and on about being called a “kitten” and a “Queen to Diva” (among other nonsensical things) before eventually thanking the flabbergasted audience for listening to her “spiel.”

….. Sean Penn was next to take the stage after Carey and immediately seized the opportunity to spark some laughs at the pop princess’s expense.

“I plan to do this (presenting an award) in absolute sobriety, forgive me if I squeak,” Penn said.


By the way, Mariah Carey is turning 41 this March.

Below is video of Mariah Carey accepting her award for Favorite R&B Artist at this year’s People’s Choice Awards. Don’t know if she was drunk or it was just the dress, but she certainly needed help getting to the stage.
