*Mariah Carey’s former longtime choreographer Anthony Burrell has dropped a revealing interview to Complex magazine about why she can no longer be bothered giving her all during live performances.

As we’ve seen over and over again, Mariah does not give a f*ck. And while you may have assumed that her DGAF attitude is because she’s sedated or intoxicated (hey, she probably really is) Complex has another theory.

According to the report, back in January, almost immediately after Mimi’s comical New Year’s Eve fiasco, she fired her choreographer and creative director, Anthony Burrell.

Anthony says:

“Working with an artist like Mariah, who’s not a mover first, it’s always a challenge to get them to think physically and not just vocally. You always have to keep in mind that they’re a singer first. The priority is not teaching them 100 counts of 8, or endless routines. I wanted to give Mariah a modern push to revamp her, give her a fresher, more modern feel, make her more aware of her body and her lines, and not look like her feet hurt when she’s walking.”

You see, Mimi is no Beyonce or Ciara when it comes to serving fya dance moves so she needs someone like Burrell to “push” her to be a “mover.” Burrell thinks her new team are too inexperienced to know how to get her to motivated.

“You’re a legend. But you don’t care, your team doesn’t care. They’re not guiding and directing her. She’s back to where she was before. It’s not like she’s never looked this bad before; I just stepped her game up.”

He added:

“It’s just typical Mariah. Mariah is clear: when she doesn’t wanna do something, she doesn’t do it. She’s performing with lackluster and no f*cks given, and it’s taking away her star.”
