Mariah Carey, Being Insured For 70 Million Seems A Bit Much

Mariah Carey Is On A Downward Spiral

While most celebs pride themselves on being “down to earth,” Mariah Carey is the opposite (her version of “down to earth” would be like, only taking the yacht to St. Tropez when her tan was fading). Anyhow, we just found out that she’s insured her vocal chords and hamstrings for $70 million.

To give you perspective- Taylor Swift‘s legs are rumored t be insured for 40 million, and she’s the biggest musician on the planet right now, not some 90’s throwback. And it probably isn’t true, either.

To guard against something happening on tour, TMZ reports that Mariah and company just got a $35 million insurance policy for her voice, and another policy of equal amount for her gams. Because you KNOW if something goes wrong with her gams, MILLIONS are at stake. LOL.

No insurance policies for her butt or hair or ego…yet.

Here’s The REAL Reason Rihanna Pulled Out Of The Grammys….

Screen Shot 2016-02-15 at 9.41.50 PM

And that is, to use a “Sandlot” quote…intimidation?

Everyone was pretty confused when Rihanna canceled her Grammys performance due to faulty antibiotics I guess associated with bronchitis, but Page Six says all of that was just a ploy to get her out of the awards show because she was afraid of giving a bad performance! Doesn’t sound like Riri, but whatev:

“She felt like her performance couldn’t compare [to some of the other artists’], and she was trying to avoid the embarrassment because she knew it wasn’t the right comeback performance,” said an insider. “She said, ‘I’m not doing this.’”

Sources said RiRi rehearsed her tune “Kiss It Better” twice, but then got cold feet after seeing Kendrick Lamar and others rehearse.

Another source who saw the pop star’s rehearsals told us, “It was underwhelming. The performance was like a throwback to an ’80s talk show. James Corden was going to introduce her, and she was supposed to walk over, talk to him, then gyrate on the mike.”

Our source continued: “People were watching like, ‘Oh, is that it?’ She was singing parts of the song live, but it had a lot of recorded vocals [in rehearsal]. We were surprised when she rehearsed the ballad [all the way through], because we thought she was going to kill it and come back with [her more upbeat single] ‘Work.’ It didn’t seem like Rihanna.”

Producers then powwowed with her team. “It was an intense conversation. It didn’t seem like they were discussing a doctor’s note,” we’re told.

But another source said the singer “looked upset after rehearsals and a doctor came to see her . . . after the doctor talked to her and told her the diagnosis, she was forced to pull out.”

It doesn’t help things that The “Anti” singer who was supposedly resting was celebrating her 28th birthday days later. Of course, this doesn’t really explain her postponed tour, but maybe she felt overall like her material and show needed a revamp?

Do you believe she was intimidated by the other Grammy performers?

Rihanna Had A Meltdown At The Grammys?!

Screen Shot 2016-02-15 at 9.41.50 PM

Uh oh, we got some conflicting stories up in here, people!

Last we reported, Rihanna couldn’t perform at the Grammys because she had bad antibiotics and vocal strain. Well NOW, it seems like she was screaming and hysterical before she bailed on the Grammys. And, there are conflicting theories as to what triggered the outburst…

Sources connected with the show and several sources who were not connected but present at the show tell TMZ … the singer was loudly expressing displeasure over her rehearsal. They say she was loud and upset and, as we first reported, bailed on the event.

Rihanna’s people say she had a medical issue … bronchitis that was so bad she could not perform and that’s why she left. Sources close to RiRi tell us she was too upset to stay and watch the show.

It’s interesting … Rihanna sang flawlessly two nights before the Grammys at a Lionel Richie charity event. Several sources say her voice was also great at the Grammys rehearsal.

Which was it? A tantrum or a vocal thing? Either way, she could have stayed and hung out!

Rihanna JUST Cancelled Her Grammy Performance

Screen Shot 2016-02-15 at 9.41.50 PM

Rihanna, might wanna find yourself a new pharmacist.

Rihanna cancelled her Grammy performance of “Kiss It Better” an hour before she’s supposed to go on! Here’s the deal:

The singer arrived at the Staples Center but did not walk the red carpet- she just went to rehearsals and left. Why? Bronchitis.  Why again? Her meds didn’t work.

Apparently, the singer wanted to perform but has been struggling with bronchitis.  The on-site doctor recommended that she pull the plug on the performance because it could permanently damage her vocal cords. She was on antibiotics for three days but they didn’t work…so she decided to listen to her doctors and is headed back to her home.

Feel better, girl. We’ll miss you!
