Mariah Carey says she was “mortified” over her New Year’s Eve performance. During a recent Q&A with Entertainment Weekly, the singer addressed the performance, saying, “All I can say is Dick Clark was an incredible person and I was lucky enough to work with him when I first started in the music business. I’m of the opinion that Dick Clark would not have let an artist go through that and he would have been as mortified as I was in real time.” When asked if the performance left her uncertain about performing live, Mariah said, “It’s not going to stop me from doing a live event in the future. But it will make me less trusting of using anyone outside of my own team.”

According to Digital Spy, Sophie Highfield says she has “no idea” how the number got in her phone. She told the site, “I seem to have access to literally hundreds of people’s numbers. I didn’t notice it at first because the contacts aren’t in my address book but when I go into messages to send a text and type in the letter ‘A’, it comes up with ‘A’ for Adele… There are also lots of producers. I feel like it might have belonged to someone from the BBC or the TV industry.” She added, “I feel like it is a data breach. I’ve not been entirely sure what to do. It’s kind of a big thing. I haven’t purchased these numbers, they’ve just fallen into my hands.”
