Whoa! Did Mariah totally throw shade at Nick Cannon? The singer kicked off her Elusive Chanteuse World Tour on Oct. 4, and not only did fans notice her sound was a bit off, they also caught a HUGE diss to her now ex!
When you change the lyrics to a Billie Holiday classic, people are going to notice! That is what Mariah Carey did during the first stop of her Elusive Chanteuse World Tour in Tokyo, when she performed “Don’t Explain,” a song all about an ex who cheated. Listen for yourself to hear her loud and clear statement — was it to Nick Cannon?
Mariah Carey Disses Nick Cannon?
The 44-year-old mother shared a ton of videos that fans shared from her performances during the show, including her cover of Billie’s “Don’t Explain.” While there isn’t video, the audio is seven minutes long — and you have to listen closely around the 4:30 mark!
The original lyrics are “I know you cheat,” but instead, it sounds like Mariah sings “I know you cheated, m–herf–ker.”
Mimi Gets Bashed For Voice
Now this isn’t the only criticism Mimi is getting — her voice actually fell off a little at the end of a ton of songs including her classics like “My All” and “We Belong Together.”
After the show, she received a slew of angry messages:
Mariah Carey needs to give it up fr, she sounds so bad now.

Think I will pass on the Mariah Carey tour that’s coming up…she can’t sing the big notes AT ALL. http://t.co/iLtGaNxXMh

I’m not going to make assumptions but there is something seriously wrong with your voice. Cancel this tour. @mariahcarey

I would like to give a shoutout to @MariahCarey for giving lip synching a rest and giving her fans the tea on how destroyed her voice is.

Mariah’s tour is set to run through November with stops in Southeast Asia and Australia. Do you want to see her, HollywoodLifers? Do you think she sounds ok? Do you think she was dissing Nick? Let us know!
