Mariah Carey Put Out A Fire Under Her Feet

And not a rumor about her being pregnant or the pain from walking in stilettos on casual days, but a real life fire.

Mariah Carey, who was at the 12th Annual Keepers of the Dream Awards on April 15, is currently in Egypt where she performed on Monday night (May 17). Before she went on, though, something had already heated up the stage.

“In Egypt getting ready to go on stage and suddenly there was a surge of power and an electrical fire started under my feet! Wtf?!” tweeted Carey. Did she stomp and scream like some of you (me) would have imagined? Nah, she stomped out those flames like they were
cubic zirconia.

“Naturally, my emergency instincts kicked in and I put out the flames w/a towel. Lol (yet true),” she wrote. The moment even had it’s own soundtrack.”The funny thing about this ish is an ol’skool radio station in the other room started playing “aww freak out!”@that exact moment!”

If heroic Carey confuses her she returned to diva Carey moments later, though with a humorous edge. She tweeted to best pal Jasmine Dotiwala “Appalled U didn’t tweet to see if I’m OK after the fire incident in Egypt! (Said in my diva theatrical accent:)”
