(ANI): Singer Mariah Carey has jokingly held filmmaker Lee Daniels
responsible for her bizarre acceptance speech at the Palm Springs
International Film Festival Awards.
Carey found it difficult to speak as she slurred and stumbled
with words while trying to give an acceptance speech after she
bagged the best supporting actress award for Lee"s
Precious at the Palm Springs Film Festival, earlier this
"The thing is me and Lee hadn't see each other in a long time,
and then he was presenting my award, so he starts off immediately
with inside jokes," the Mirror quoted Carey as saying at the
People's Choice Awards on Wednesday night, where she was named
favourite RnB artist.
"We had splashes of champagne, and I love Lee but he's a bad
influence. If people don't understand me and think I'm just like
this girl that stands by a microphone and sings Hero, then they're
definitely not going to get me…. But if people knew me better, they
would understand I have a sense of humour, and basically that's
what gets me through life," she added.
