A disaster, indeed!

Mariah Carey asking for hot tea is 2018’s first official meme

After a truly disastrous performance during Dick Clark’s 2017 New Year’s Eve extravaganza, Mariah Carey officially redeemed herself on Sunday evening.

Warmly wrapped in a feathery coat and sparkly nude dress, the chanteuse wailed the world into the New Year with some of her biggest hits. But it wasn’t her killer vocal performance that has everyone talking. It was an aside she made between songs, asking for some hot tea.

“They told me there would be tea,” she said, looking just slightly annoyed. On such a cold evening, hot tea should be a no brainer. Especially for a diva such as herself.

Upon realizing there was no tea for her, Mariah said, “Oh, it’s a disaster! OK, well, we’ll just have to rough it. I’m going to be like everybody else, with no hot tea.”

A disaster, indeed! Being just like everybody else.

Luckily, Mimi found her tea shortly after the performance, tweeting:

Fun fact: That enormous rock displayed on her middle finger is actually her engagement ring from ex-fiancee James Packer, who Mariah sued for $50 million after their breakup, calling it an “inconvenience fee.”

Naturally, the memers have been going wild over the whole thing.
