Mariah Carey kicked off the “Good Morning America” Summer Concert Series, but it wasn’t without some drama. The pop diva’s fans packed New York’s Central Park on a rainy Friday to see her perform her classics “Always Be My Baby” and “We Belong Together,” plus her new single “#Beautiful.”
In between songs, she suffered a wardrobe malfunction, or “Central Park Saga” as she called it, when the back of her pink Versace dress popped open. “I love you Donatella, but it popped, darling,” she said as two people rushed to adjust it, while host Lara Spencer held up notecards over Mimi’s breasts.
She let a cuss word slip (“Oh shit!”) and took off her heels before bringing out Miguel to perform their collaboration “#Beautiful” for the first time. While sitting on a white chair, she dueted with the R&B crooner on the breezy tune, which is currently No. 20 on the Billboard Hot 100.
She thanked her fans for their support. “#Lambily!!! Thank you for standing in the rain while I was dealing with the ensem drama etc. I love you so much!” she tweeted.
Watch Mimi and her Lambs take over Central Park.
