NEW YORK (USA Today)-- "Oh shoot, the back of my dress just popped!" said Mariah Carey as she was talking to Good Morning America anchor Lara Spencer this morning on a stage in Central Park.
The diva singer and American Idol judge who came on stage awkwardly carrying her microphone pack, sang her first song as part of the show's summer concert series, then started chatting with Spencer when - uh oh - something happened. Carey twirled around to show that the back of the long, sparkly, body-hugging gown had come undone halfway down her back. Her zipper appeared to have malfunctioned.
"It popped, darling," said Carey, 43. "What should we call this? The Central Park saga?"
Said Spencer, "I daresay this is a TV moment."
Carey, keeping her cool as handlers scurried to fix the wardrobe malfunction, said, "Ok, I'll just hold them up the whole time," clutching her breasts.
Spencer held her notes in front of Carey's chest, although nothing was showing. They cut to commercial. When they returned, Carey was wearing the same dress. All seemed fine.
After the next commercial break, Carey had changed into a hot pink number.
"Ravishing," said GMA's Josh Elliott.
"I've been working out. I've been trying to do the best I can to stay in shape. And these stress-fests, they help. But I need to catch my breath! Please talk." She smiled.
She then made her way up the stairs to sit in a big chair on a platform and could be heard uttering the s-word. "Oh, (expletive)," she said. Adding, "You didn't hear that." She had taken her shoes off so she could kick up her legs and bare feet to sing her new duet with Miguel.
