Mariah Carey may have dislocated her shoulder recently, but this diva knows that the show must go on! The pop star was scheduled to perform at a concert in NYC's Central Park to benefit victims of last year's Hurricane Sandy, and she wasn't going to let an injury stop her.
She performed with her right arm in a white, jewel-encrusted sling that matched her Natalia Danilova dress. Within minutes, the hashtag #blingsling started going around on Twitter.
Mariah's husband Nick Cannon recently explained his wife's injury. The songbird and former American Idol judge was filming the music video for her "#Beautiful" remix, which just so happened to be directed by Nick, when it happened. "She was in this nice, beautiful gown, heels on and everything, and was kind of on this platform and reached and slipped and fell on her whole side," he explained on The Today Show.
Nick, who hosts America's Got Talent, reported that his wife broke a rib, dislocated her shoulder, and chipped her shoulder bone. Ouch! Luckily, her voice is doing just fine.
