Mariah Carey forced to 'rough it' for New Year's Eve performance due to lack of hot tea

While her 2016 New Year's Eve performance was much better than the lip-syncing disaster of 2016, Mariah Carey's NYE "redemption" show that saw her ring in 2018 was not without incident.

The pop star managed to create the first meme of 2018 after pausing between songs to question the lack of hot tea at her show. Not shade or receipts - literal tea for drinking purposes.

While the "All I Want For Christmas" singer sounded far better than she did at last year's event, she appeared to have one of her notorious "diva moments" when the drink she wanted was unavailable.

"There told me there would be tea," she said in confusion after "Vision of Love". "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."

Yes, Carey was forced to join the legions of commoners in attendance at her gig and suffer through the show without a hot beverage.

Later, in the shadiest, most glamorous New Year's photo to ring in 2018, Carey later posted a picture of herself sipping a cup of hot tea from her dressing room.
