VH1’s Hip Hop Honors: The 90’s Game Changers brought a lot of nostalgia to Los Angeles as they celebrated the decade responsible for making the hip-hop genre the success that it is today. Amongst the great honors, tributes and performances was one very awkward performance by the legendary Mariah Carey. Unfortunately, the singer, who was once the highest selling artist of the ‘90s, is now notoriously known for her motionless performances and her recent routine was no exception as it was just as cringeworthy as the last.
However, the best part of the entire “Honey” performance was the fact that despite the inability to walk a couple feet on her own, VH1 still wanted us to believe that a woman rappelling down the side of a building was the real Mariah Carey. You can’t fool us, VH1. We’re not exaggerating when we say that the real Carey couldn’t make any steps, or movements, without being assisted by two of her backup dancers and, after all of the standing, Mariah needed to take a break. So, she sat down for a minute on a golden jet ski and then took a ride inside a golden helicopter.
If you’re thinking: Wow. that performance was straight up uncomfortable to watch, well, you’re not the only one. One twitter user wrote:
“Mariah Carey didn't move once by herself on stage..So yall really think i'ma believe she came sliding down that wall?”
And quite possibly the best tweet was this one comparing Mariah to a lazy dog.
