Mariah Carey confuses Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon during emotional speech

Mirror Online 1 week ago

Singer Mariah Carey accidentally confused actress Jennifer Aniston with Reese Witherspoon during an emotional acceptance speech.

The 49-year-old made the slip up at the Variety‘s Power Of Women lunch in Los Angeles where she was one of six honourees.

The blunder is being blamed on her having to rely on her memory and notes she had prepared due to a failure in the teleprompters, the Daily Mail reports.

Friends actress Jennifer and Reese, who played her sister in several episodes, are also fellow honourees.

During her speech, Mariah also spoke about sexism, racism and motherhood, saying: "I was 18 years old when I got my first record deal.

"A lot of very powerful men controlled my career — what I wore, who I worked with, and every aspect of my overall image.

"Believe me, that can be very intimidating and confining to a young girl just getting started, trying to express herself artistically.

"It took a lot of hard work, inner strength and believing in myself, but slowly I gained the courage to emerge from that stifling control by a group of men."

The mum-of-two, who has eight-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with her ex-husband Nick Cannon, said she believed her daughter's experiences in life would be different to her son because she's a girl and she was trying to prepare her for that.

Mariah received her award from seven-year-old Mixed-ish star Mykal-Michelle 'Mimi' Harris for philanthropy with the Fresh Air Fund’s Camp Maria, which she said she started 25 years ago.

The scheme gives free summer camp places to children from New York living in low-income families.

Mykal-Michelle said: "I may not be a woman of power yet but girl power can change the world. Miss Mariah Carey knocked open the doors to the entertainment industry for girls who look like me."
