Mariah Carey is getting a second chance…

The 47-year-old half-Venezuelan American singer will return to the scene of her infamous major malfunction in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, agreeing to another performance this year for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest.

Mariah Carey 

Carey was the victim of an alleged technical malfunction when she appeared on the globally televised program in 2016-17, though her bizarre off-camera demeanor made others question whether sound was the issue. Carey wound up walking around the stage without singing in what many described as a meltdown.

A representative for Carey blamed Dick Clark Productions. saying “production set her up to fail”; DCP called that claim “absurd.”

This year, Carey will take another stab at performing in the New Year’s Eve celebration, taking the stage at 11:45 p.m.

Carey recently changed managers, and the switch to Roc Nation might have prompted the return.

Other performers scheduled to appear include Camila Cabello, Nick Jonas and Sugarland. Britney Spears will appear for a remote cameo from Las Vegas.

Lovato Becomes Co-Owner of LA’s CAST Mental Health & Wellness Treatment Center

Demi Lovato is CASTing her support for teh treatment of mental health in a big way…

The 24-year-old part-Mexican American singer/actress, who has been quite vocal about her battle with health issues, has become a co-owner of the CAST Centers in Los Angeles, the same place where she received rehab help.

Demi Lovato

Lovato, who reveals the news in an interview for CBSSunday Morning to be broadcast September 11, was referred to the West Hollywood mental health and wellness treatment center for help with depression, bulimia and substance abuse back in 2011, after a rough period in her life.

The program worked, and she’s brought her rehab guru, Mike Bayer, the CEO of CAST, on tour with her this summer.

Why buy in? “I don’t know what it says, it just feels good,” Lovato tells Smith.

“How many 24-year-olds own their own treatment center?” says Lovato’s manager, Phil McIntyre. “But then to leverage her position in pop music to do so much good is just incredible.”

To say Lovato has come a long way since undergoing treatment at CAST would be an understatement. Indeed, CAST’s Bayer admits that when he first met the former Disney star-turned-household name, she was “very closed off.” She would also sleep a lot and express herself with one word-answers. “[She] didn’t care about anything,” Bayer said.

Lovato says she was far from a model patient. “Yeah, I was a nightmare,” she said. “I would say … the word that I want to say, but it’s so inappropriate that I can’t. And this will be on a Sunday morning, so I’m not going to say it!”

But eventually, she thrived at the facility, and now is healthy again and on tour with Nick Jonas. She also gave a moving speech this summer at the Democratic National Convention — part of her efforts to use her celebrity to help others living with mental illnesses.

“It sounds ridiculous but, like, I kind of made a pact with God,” Lovato tells CBS. “And I don’t even think you’re supposed to do that, but I was, like, I promised, ‘If you make me a singer one day, I’m going to use my voice for so much more than singing, and I’m going to help people with it.’”

Lovato credits taking responsibility for her actions, and learning how to function without “some sort of drug or with alcohol,” for getting her to this point today. “And because of that,” she said, “I’m now sitting here right now alive and more successful than I’ve ever been.”
