Anthony Burrell, her ex- choreographer and creative director says her recent concert shows while on tour shows that her current team is misguiding her and doesn’t care about the Diva.
He thinks her latest stage performances are falling out due to her inexperienced new team after he was fired by the songstress after all that happened at her New Year’s Eve performance.
He points out that, “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 fucks given, and it’s taking away her star. 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’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.”
Anthony Burrell believes he did a great job while still with Mariah Carey but has discredited her current team that they are just inexperienced and killing the singer’s musical and stage potentiality.
